When Allah returns your soul every morning and you wake up by His Mercy alone, remember to say “Subhanallah” and give thanks for another chance to do good deeds. So many didn’t wake up at all.Dr. Bilal Philips (Twitter)
Some people can be very difficult to deal with. They will hurt you with their words and actions. It’s easy to just be angry and shut them out of your lives. But at times you can’t.

Indeed, Allah (God) commands justice, grace, as well as courtesy to close relatives. He forbids indecency, wickedness, and aggression. He instructs you so perhaps you will be mindful.Qur’an 16:90, Translation by Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Evil, as an independent phenomenon whereby no dimension of good is involved, has no existence in this world. There is nothing in our existence that can be called pure evil, because every evil in this world is good from one angle or another. For instance, sickness harms the body from one angle, while from other angles tests patience, evokes resilience, and may even strengthen immunity. Most disliked things are usually this way; never void of some benefit or another for the human being.Ibn al-Qayyim, Shifā’ al-‘Alīl fī Masā’il al-Qaḍā’i wal-Qadari wal-Ḥikmati wat-Ta‘līl (Cairo: Dar at-Turath, 1978), pp. 380-413.

Life is short. So don’t waste your energies on things & people who don’t contribute to your growth & are busy with negativity. Wake daily recharged, eager to put to good use the blessings the Almighty has sent your way. Not everyone has this opportunity. Be grateful.Mufti Ismail Menk (Twitter)

A person who is content with what the Almighty provides for him will enjoy tranquility, satisfaction & peace of mind, as he does not long for what others have, or desire what he does not possess. If you’re content with what He has given you, you’ll be the richest person.Mufti Menk (Twitter)
Develop Taqwa (God consciousness) while fasting. Taqwa gives clarity & meaning to things in our lives, and gives us a clear direction. Without it, we are left to ourselves & end up lost not knowing where to go.Dr. Bilal Philips (Twitter)
