Assalam Aleykum Warahmatullahy Wabarakatuhu!
Hey guys! :)
Sometimes,I sit down and think about who I am and who I want to be.Living as a Muslim in today’s society is certainly not easy.When so many things have become the norm.Things like mixing with the opposite gender,listening to music and a whole bunch of other things that you already know about because we all actively engage in one or the other.
Obviously,no one wants to do the wrong thing.I think ultimately people are just searching for happiness.So we choose to engage in things that we believe will make us happy.Personally,I like to have fun.I love the feeling of being happy and experiencing life.I mean who doesn’t right?But I also hate the guilt that comes with doing the wrong thing.I know,no one’s perfect.We all sin and will continue to do so because that’s how Allah SW created us.But life just seems so difficult sometimes.I guess in all this hullabaloo we end up losing our focus and even ourselves.
You know when something happens to you so many times,you start to think that’s how things are always going to be.You start to forget that things could be different.I guess constantly being on the wrong has got me doubting if I could ever be good.
They say that experience is the best teacher and I completely agree.It’s just that there are some things you never think you’ll ever go through or experience until they actually happen to you and then you end up having that “Oh wow I never saw that coming” moment.
But one thing I’ve learnt is that you cannot afford to give up.Just because you’ve made a lot of mistakes,committed a lot of sins,doesn’t mean your chances of becoming better have died along with the mistakes you’ve made.I do believe that Allah SW is in control and nothing happens without Him SW willing it.So yes,everything does happen for a reason.Whether we understand those reasons or not.
No matter how bad things get,better days are coming.Keep trying to be better,to excel in every aspect of your life whether physically,religiously or socially.Don’t let your mistakes blind you from seeing the lessons behind them.And so what if you mess up?That’s the funny thing about life,that’s how we learn.So keep your head up.Keep praying,keep learning and keep messing up.It’s definitely not going to be easy,but it will be worth it in the end, in shaa allah.
