Being married forces you to fine tune those not-so-great-aspects of yourself and strive to be better. Love comes in here too; when you are in a loving relationship (and in love and loved); you have this amazing reservoir of energy within you that allows you to flourish and nurture.
It brings out the best in you and makes you strive to be better because someone cares and loves you; and vice versa. It is kind of like how we instinctively react to another’s perception of us, when they think well of us and believe in us, we want to do even better; but when they disparage us we will get defensive. Is it any wonder that our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said that marriage is half of faith?

These past few months have been a bit of a struggle. Unfortunately, I have to admit that I have not been the best of believers in these times. I know that it is a typical ‘teenage’ thing to do, to go online and share my sorrows. To let everyone know that I am a miserable person. But I don’t want to do that anymore. I don’t want to be the girl that complains that nobody understands. I don’t want to be the girl that people talk about because they know she’s going through a rough time. In fact, I don’t want to be like any other girl. I might not have gone through as much as other people, or lost what someone might consider as ‘a lot’of people. But I think He has let me live long enough for me to know why I’m here. We were all created for one purpose. If you still haven’t figured it out yet, insha Allah, you will one day. And when that day comes, you will know how blessed you are, masha Allah. You are not lucky, you are blessed. Think about all the bad things that’s happened, think about all those times where you thought you couldn’t make it. And look at where you are now. Masha Allah. Alhamdulillah. We were all made for one reason and one reason only. It is how we go about fulfilling that purpose that makes us all different people. How would you know your reason of being if you do not realize you are a being? How would you fulfill your purpose if you do not take the journey to fulfill your purpose? I understand now. Alhamdulillah. And because of that I can move forward. Insha Allah.

A calamity struck the Masjid Al Tawheed Islamic Center in Jersey City, NJ yesterday morning. A 3-alarm fire started at Faj’r and has completely destoyed the masjid. Alhamdulilah, no one was injured or harmed. This masjid, home to almost 1,000 members, has suffered extensive damage. They are working diligently to restore it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Your donations are greatly needed. Whoever builds a mosque for the pleasure of Allah will have a home waiting for him in Jannah.
insha’Allah, let’s pray so.
