nadirkeval:

Don’t be fearless. Be this instead. - Nadir Keval
——————————————-
Excerpt:
To be fearless is to live and act without any sense of fear. You see, that doesn’t seem to make much sense in my mind, because it is the overcoming of fear that results in achieving greatness and growing as a person. So, in order for us to be the best we can be, we need to learn to be courageous and brave when faced with the inevitable truth of fear.
Every day, we are faced with something or the other that makes us have to push beyond our limits. Opportunity lies outside of our comfort zones. If you find that you’re not being faced with this kind of opportunity often, I suggest you take a look at your life and ask yourself if you’re really out there trying to make every day better than your last. Ask yourself if you’re really doing the things that make you happy, and striving every day to be better at it in order to master your craft. If you aren’t, please make a change and start challenging yourself on the daily, so that you can begin living life to the fullest. Every person deserves to live their best life, but it is only when we accept that truth, that we are able to begin working on making our lives and the lives of others better.

Something has really been testing my patience in the last little while, and I’ve realized that the test has been more difficult whenever my faith became weak and I wasn’t as diligent in maintaining a connection and relationship with Allah. What I’ve learned from and been reminded of through this is that in order for me to find peace of heart and mind, and in order for me to achieve success in patience and in acquiring what I’m looking for, I must place my greatest efforts towards my relationship with Allah, and trust in Him to handle the matters of my life that are not in my control. Sure, He may already do that through His limitless generosity and love, but wouldn’t it be wiser to kiss the Hand of the One who feeds you than to bite it?

"People say they don’t like to get too caught up in happiness because it never lasts. Then, you hear them talking about being in pursuit of happiness. There’s the problem: we’re confused, pessimistic, and ungrateful. Embrace every moment as an opportunity for happiness. Look to those in the greatest of struggles in the world, and you’ll see them constantly striving to smile…to simply smile. Stop complaining. Smile, if not for anything else, then at least for the fact that you’re blessed to experience life and are always able to make things better, even if all you can do right now is simply smile."

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.

Progression Through Addiction - Nadir Keval
This Ramadan, I’ve been trying to overcome an addiction I’ve struggled with for most of my life. It’s not an addiction like smoking or drinking, or anything like that, alhamdulillah, but it’s a major struggle I haven’t been able to overcome, and one that has negatively influenced a great deal of my life. I’ve begun to understand that all of us have our vices, our addictions, our obsessions, and those things can be bad for us if we fall too deep into them. For example, consider that even drinking too much water can lead to us hurting ourselves, even though water is a human necessity. I learned that everything comes with a need for balance, and a need for how to approach something wisely. To put that into context of the water example, technically, you could get water from drinking soda/pop, but that is far more harmful to your body than drinking pure water would be.
Addiction is something I’ve learned may have its benefits. How many successful and influential people have you met or heard of who said that despite knowing what they needed to do, they weren’t able to do it until they hit rock bottom. Perhaps, that’s what addiction, along with other struggles like it, lead to. Perhaps, that is why these things exist. I’m not necessarily suggesting one indulges in any addiction or struggle, but instead, to take your time in working through things and growing at a pace that doesn’t hurt you.

Try, Try Again - Nadir Keval
With being halfway through Ramadan 2014, I’ve been giving a lot of thought towards bettering myself this month. One of the things I’ve learned more than almost anything else is how we are very fragile people, and we need to be easier on ourselves. It’s important that we do our best to better ourselves, but when we fail or fall, we shouldn’t give up.Read the whole article: Try, Try Again - Nadir Keval

Ramadan Mubarak! May this month be one that fills our hearts with the zeal and drive to be amongst those that live for the sake of Allah. May every moment nourish our Imaan, and cleanse us of our spiritual, physical, and mental toxins, helping us live on after Ramadan being at our best. May we get closer to our loved ones through growing closer to Allah, and may He bless us with happiness and success in this life and the Hereafter. Ameen!
