Every day do your best, Allah will do the rest

Idyllic village next to beautiful mountain

Wash your heart every morning with salat, then warm it up with dhikr. Begin each day with faith in you heart, and know that no matter how steep the mountain, Allah is with you as you climb. Every day do your best, Allah will do the rest.

    As salamu alaykum,

    When I began to do wudu and gushl, I said to my friend, you are cleaning yourself, to be pure to receive our Lord(swt) from outside, but how do you clean your Heart? How do you make gushl of the Heart?

    While walking, I am constantly surprised, people that I would never expected appear in my life from almost everywhere, people which Hearts shines showing me the next step to take in the path, Alhamdulillah.

    Allah(swt) get close to us in infinite ways, today a brise, tomorrow a person, the day after a message, a flower or a smile, who knows, maybe silence for a while, reading and reflecting, meditate and exercise, cleaning the house and cooking, being with family and have fun, all of this are blessings that we are able to appreciate everyday more due to our encounter with Him(swt), we have Him(swt) everywhere, from inside to outside, then doing our best, we are acknowledging His Presence as Omnipresent, Alhamdulillah.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    This post is like a green tea for me, detoxifying. There are a few moments when I’m in Zen like state, total serene and I am able to actually see how everything is so transient and indeed, Allah is behind it all.

    When those around me try to knock me down, when they try to break my thoughts, my dreams and all those things that make me smile, all I can do is keep trying, keep climbing, keep confirming my thoughts, keep laying another brick, one by one – my effort will become my forte. No-one can break my soul, no-one can take away my dreams. I will keep knocking on Allah’s Door, He(swt) will answer me and He(swt) will make my difficulty easy. I believe He(swt) will because the Prophet(sws) said: “When Allah desires good for someone, He tries him with hardships’. (Sahih Al Bukhari).

    I think your notes are very nice and inspiring, but very hard to live by. May Allah help us and give us the power to live as he wants us, to not be dessapointed by our difficulties.

      Susan, thanks for your comment. I think these concepts are only hard in the beginning. Once you begin implementing them in your life and get used to them, you discover that you can’t imagine living any other way.
