LIVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE

Life is a journey not a race and neither a destination because one day it will surely end this is why it can never be considered anything else but a journey. However it often gets mistaken for a race with an illusionary finish line instead of it being viewed as a journey comprised of a variety of half way stops in the form of : self-realisations, errors, fulfilled or unfulfilled dreams, meaningful and life altering experiences and priceless wisdom.

Often we encounter people who just kill our spirits and take away the living in life. In Allah Ta’ala’s plans there is an objective to sending them our way. Often He wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right ones so that when we finally meet the right people, we will know how to be grateful for that gift and value and treasure them. This is how He wishes to teach us gratitude.

When the door of happiness closes, another opens which we need to always remember. Allah Ta’ala never seals shut one door without opening up others first. It is our own flawed faith and trust in Him that makes us focus only on the closed door that we don't see the ones which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit with, pour out your troubles, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had. Such a friend can only be found in Allah Ta’ala.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

We all need enough happiness to make us sweet, enough trials to make us strong, enough sorrow to keep us human and enough hope to bring us joy.

Always put yourself in another's shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. This is the only way to understand, accept and tolerate others and their actions.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't get on well in life until you let go of past failures and heartaches. We need to forget our pasts in order to embrace a brighter future. It cannot be done in any other way.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying. It may be a difficult task but it is not an impossible to do so. There are still those who are doing it proving that it can be done.

Our relationships with Allah Ta’ala come from within the recesses of our hearts. If this is not the starting point then there is no real relationship. We cannot achieve a meaningful life without this!
