"The planning of The Almighty is better for you than your own planning, and He could deprive you from what you ask to test your patience. So let Him see from you a determined patience and you will soon see from Him what will give you joy. And when you have cleaned the paths of answering (supplication) from the stains of sin and have been patient about what He has chosen for you, then everything that happens to you is better for you whether you were given or deprived of what you have requested."-Ibn Al-Jawzee (via gordo10bx)
How to be more Self-Disciplined
1. Choose to act, or to do what you should you. Don’t wait until you feel that you are in the right mood.
2. Decide to keep on going, and to finish what you’ve started. Don’t allow yourself to give up when you’re only part way through.
3. Be honest with yourself and call yourself on the excuses….
"The greatest prison that people live in is the fear of what other people think."-David Icke (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"Most difficult part of marriage… Life.
-Catherine (via white—-orchid)
Life is hard and let’s face it, none of us walk into a relationship without issues and life throws curve balls all the time, which expose your flaws and weaknesses. So marriage is hard work, because it’s incredibly easy to become complacent in your relationship, because it’s so familiar and in the process forgetting that as life is changing you, it’s also changing the other person and to keep up with that progress. To remain in touch with your spouse’s needs and at the same time being honest about your own growth and needs… It’s the constant stopping and checking up on your relationship, nurturing it, but allowing yourself to grow is hard. It’s hard because life isn’t romantic sunset walks on the beach, it’s international deployments, infertility, relocations, financial strain, illness, occupational stress, dysfunctional families and nowhere to be seen friends. Marriage is hard because you promised that you will never give up and sometimes giving up feels like it would be the easiest thing to do."
"A Muslim continues to remain under trial in respect of his life, property & offspring until he faces Allāh with no sin record." [Tirmidhi]
O Allah, there is no ease other than what You make easy. If You please You ease sorrow. (ameen)
"Never forget your dialogue with God, it is your strength."-
