New Things

I am scared of losing myself, forgetting who I really am, when life is going to be shared with another person. I need to hold on to who I was, I am, and always will be.

Hypocritical Fear

O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

**

And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad PBUH); and that they came not to prayer except in a lazy state; and that they offer not contributions but unwillingly.

So let not their wealth or their children amaze you (O Muhammad PBUH); in reality Allah's Plan is to punish them with these things in the life of this world, and that their souls shall depart (die) while they are disbelievers.

**

The hypocrites fear lest a Surah (chapter of the Quran) should be revealed about them, showing them what is in their hearts. Say: "(Go ahead and) mock! But certainly Allah will bring to light all that you fear."

**

The hypocrites, men and women, are from one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief and polytheism of all kinds and all that Islam has forbidden), and forbid (people) from Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and they close their hands [from giving (spending in Allah's Cause) alms, etc.]. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).

**

Like those before you, they were mightier than you in power, and more abundant in wealth and children. They had enjoyed their portion awhile, so enjoy your portion awhile as those before you enjoyed their portion awhile; and you indulged in play and pastime (and in telling lies against Allah and His Messenger Muhammad PBUH) as they indulged in play and pastime. Such are they whose deeds are in vain in this world and in the Hereafter. Such are they who are the losers.

Keep Reading When Unsure

And be not like those who come out of their homes boastfully and to be seen of men, and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah. And Allah is Muhit (encircling and thoroughly comprehending) all that they do.

And (remember) when Satan made their (evil) deeds seem fair to them and said, "No one of mankind can overcome you this Day (of the battle of Badr) and verily, I am your neighbour (for each and every help)". But when the two forces came in sight of each other, he ran away and said "Verily! I see what you see not. Verily! I fear Allah for Allah is Severe in punishment."

When the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was a disease (of disbelief) said: "These people (Muslims) are deceived by their religion." But whoever puts his trust in Allah, then surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

More Reminders

And know that your possessions and your children are but a trial and that surely with Allah is a mighty reward.

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allah, He will grant you Furqan a criterion [(to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. making a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you, and Allah is the Owner of the Great Bounty.

Scientists Discover Brain's Anti-Distraction System

Scientists discover brain's anti-distraction system

I was wondering how to stay focused on life's true purpose, since I clearly have a weakness for irrelevant distractions. Hoped to find an article relating to ADHD solutions, and boom - when I got home, I came across this article on my Facebook news feed. Got the answer that I was looking for, from a scientific perspective. I hope that study will be expanded so we all can gather more ideas on how to apply it to other aspects of life.

After reading the article, just think about it. What means can you use as a suppressant for the distractions that are keeping you away from fulfilling your life's true purpose?

Saw My Happily Wedded Aunt and Uncle

When you really love somebody, you wouldn't care about that person's looks when they grow fat (or the other way around).

But of course, it shouldn't be contested with the love for our Maker.

So yeah, no reason to be ultimately depressed if that person is out of your life, if you have found a greater love, that is.

Dealing With Problems From Their Roots

7 Emotions That Don't Serve You and How to Detox Them

Above is a link to a pretty helpful article that I came across. Btw, I didn't exactly go through with my intention to pig out on food. A little, but not too much.
