Pray for the people of Palestine, and for all those who are being unjustly prosecuted, tortured, and killed around the world. We are in a time where there seems to be a goal to desensitize the world of death…where innocence is no longer even considered, but is being labeled irrelevant by the same people who are holding the guns or throwing the bombs, or even more so, those who are “secretly” funding those barbarians who have lost all understanding of justice and humanity, and have gone on killing sprees, targeting women and children. We see so many pictures and videos of bombs falling, of children being physical torn apart, and people losing entire families in a matter of seconds. We have to do our best to support the people experiencing injustice in any and every form, we have to help them stay strong, we have to help in every single way we can, but most importantly, and I cannot express this enough, we have to remember that the Prophet (SAW) said that the greatest weapon of a believer is Du’a (supplication). So, brothers and sisters, pray, make Du’a, stay up at night begging Allah with tears flooding your eyes, for justice, for peace, for patience, for strength, and for His Mercy, for the oppressed around the world. Please, let’s use this opportunity of Ramadan, in the last few days we have left, to come together and sincerely, from the deepest points of our hearts to dedicate most of our time towards making Du’a, and KNOW for a FACT that Allah will answer our Du’a. Jazakum Allahu Khairun. And Allah knows best.

Tonight, two of my close friends married each other, Alhamdulillah. I asked the groom, “How do you feel?” He replied, “I can’t tell if I’m walking on the floor or on clouds :D”

10 Tips for Daily Happiness
In the world we live in, it’s very easy for us to become overwhelmed or sidetracked by the smallest of things. Still, that is no reason for us to allow our circumstances or the words or actions of others deter us from being happy.
Throughout my journey in entrepreneurship, faith, health, and the other aspects of my life, I’ve found that there are certain things that are great ways to strengthen our relationships with our own selves. Here are 10 tips I’ve come up with over the years:
1. Keep it simple
When you’re ambitious, or have a lot of things on your plate, it’s fairly easy to overfill our daily to-do list. I did this for years, before I realized that the saying, “Slow and steady wins the race,” is one of the wisest things ever said, especially for one who leads a life in need of self-discipline and unrelenting drive. My suggestion would be to stick to no more than 3-5 things on your daily list of tasks. I guarantee, that will be enough to keep you busy, because in a day, things are bound to come up that are out of your control, and keeping a semi-short list of tasks will help you accomplish your daily goals, while also not leaving you feeling overwhelmed or unaccomplished at the end of the day. If you finish those things, you can always add more things, one by one.
2. Pray
A relationship with God is one of the greatest blessings one can have. It is something that is available to all of us. All that’s required of us is that we reach out for it and respect it. Every person has their own faith, but I can only speak of my own experiences as a Muslim. Amongst the things I love most about my faith is the beauty of prayer and supplication. Through five daily prayers, I am blessed with 5 short vacations, where I can detach from my struggles and goals, and connect with Allah and with my self. Through supplication, I always have someone to speak to when I feel overwhelmed or need help in coming to a decision. The beauty of whom I speak to when supplicating is that He, Allah, is capable of all things and wants what is best for me. How beautiful a feeling it is, to know for certain that I will be okay, and will never be alone, as long as I have faith and prayer.

Today, my dad’s uncle passed away. He had been sick for the past few years, and began to have trouble breathing yesterday. He passed in his sleep, alhamdulillah.

Last week, my close friend’s father passed away the day before he was going to permanently move from Egypt to Canada.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raajiuun.

Please keep both of them and our families in your dua. Jazakallahu khairun.

Unsure of a decision you want to or have to make? Pray Isthikhaarah and listen to your heart. Allah will guide you and your heart towards what’s best for you in this life and the Next. And even if where you are lead is a temporary place, know that you had to go there first before you went anywhere else.

Just wanted to say thank you and jazakallahu khairun to everyone that sent me messages and kept me in their prayers. All of your messages really made me feel great :) I’m healing up and recovering well, but won’t be as active on social media site or my phone/emails for a while, until I feel completely recovered. Thank you all again. Much love! :D

Last year, I wrote an article about my personal connection to the day of Arafah, which is today this year (Monday, October 14th, 2013), so I thought I’d share the article again 
This day made me who I am, because before it, my parents were convinced they would never be able to have children. Alhamdulillah, Allah proved the doctors wrong. Ah, the power of dua.

I am in no place to tell anyone how to live. I can only speak and act out of love, and be patient with the results of my efforts. At the end of the day, I trust in God to take care of those I love and those I have not had the pleasure of sharing my love with. I strive to begin every day with raising my hands to ask for the tools of survival, success, and positive influence, and end my night with prostration to the Most High, asking Him to forgive me for my humanity, to accept my humble gratitude, and to give me the chance of another day, to prove my love of Him and for Him.

You are allowed to be happy. Don’t forget that, because far too many of us do. The key, though, is to understand that happiness is not something that is just given to us. It is earned. We spend so much of our lives complaining and pleading for some sort of happiness to “come our way”, when in fact, happiness is something we need to work hard for. We’ve all heard before about how the things most worth having in life are also the things that are hardest to attain, so, just like success, good health, and righteousness, happiness too requires that hard work. And now that you know this, get out there, live your life, and be happy! No person experienced long term happiness by sitting on a couch all day complaining. Don’t try to be the first, because it’s an impossibility. I pray that Allah grants all of us the strength, zeal, and guidance to pursue and achieve happiness by any means necessary.
