أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and not be tried? - Surah Al Ankaboot. (via nouraliman)

I feel a sense of accomplishment as I am slowly discovering myself. Unfortunately, this feeling also breeds intense self-criticism. This is growth, I suppose.

I can’t stress it enough how you need to be with people who will influence you to be better, that you feel good just by being with them because you like how you are around them.

It’s especially important if by being with them you feel closer to Allah (swt).

I think often times us students (especially us college students) get so distracted with our studies and school work that we forget to work for the most important test: getting through this dunya with jannah as our goal. May Allah swt ease our studies and make us successful, while sending us reminders that will make our akhira’s successful, as well.

Ameen.

Days will pass, and you will give up things you were addicted to,
You will leave someone, you will cancel a dream, and finally, you will accept a reality.

ستمضي للأيام .. وتتخلّى عن أشياءَ أدمنتها ..
ستترُكُ أحداً .. وستُلغي حُلماً .. وأخيراً ستتقبّلُ واقِعاً ..
