When the things you used to know turned upside down, you’d take a moment to evaluate (muhasabah). Read QS Asy-Syuuraa’ (42):30 ~ وَمَا أَصَابَكُم مِّن مُّصِيبَةٍ فَبِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَيَعْفُو عَن كَثِيرٍ
Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.
You’d take a self-assessment and score fairly & truly. How you’ve been to yourself, to others and most importantly to your Creator – Robbul ‘alamin 📝📝
You improved yourself, fixed certain things, resetting your goals but stay distant from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala? You thought problem solved because you feel recovered but eventually you are making the same mistake again. You are keeping a ticking bomb in your pocket ☹️☹️
Read QS Adz-Dzaariyaah (51):56 ~ وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
Know who you are & what you are meant to be in this world 🙂🙂
The improvements, the fixings, the resettings you are about to take, make sure all according to Allah‘s. Read QS An-Nuur (24):51 ~ إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوْلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَن يَقُولُوا سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ
The answer of the Believers, when summoned to Allah and His Messenger, in order that He may judge between them, is no other than this: they say, “We hear and we obey”: it is such as these that will attain felicity.
Read QS Al-Israa’ (17):36 ~ وَلَا تَقْفُ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ إِنَّ السَّمْعَ وَالْبَصَرَ وَالْفُؤَادَ كُلُّ أُولَٰئِكَ كَانَ عَنْهُ مَسْئُولًا
And pursue not that of which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).
Repent. Hijra. Istiqamah. Read QS Ali ‘Imraan (3):8 ~ رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ
“Our Lord!” (they say), “Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure.
