1. If you have friends who will show up when you’re down, you’re blessed. There are too many fair-weather friends in this world. Remember, not everyone has the capacity and will to be present when you’re not shining. It takes a special heart to do that.

2. Things didn’t work out because you were under the Almighty’s Divine Protection. Understand His Plan. Yet half the time we pine for what’s over and gone and refuse to accept that He did it in our best interest. He always does.

3. Let people assume whatever they want about you. You’re not responsible for their assumptions and whatever else they think they know about you and who you’re supposed to be. You can’t stop them anyway. It has nothing to do with who you really are. Just live.

4. When you pray, pray with confidence. Don’t let circumstances intimidate you. Don’t give up. You’re asking the Lord of the Worlds. Nothing is impossible for Him. Your prayers will be answered according to His timing. Keep praying.

5. When you put your full trust in the Almighty and refuse to give up, you’ll achieve what you set out to do. Persistent faith will lead you to success in this world and the next. It doesn’t mean everything is perfect but you press on because you know that He wants the best for you.

6. The Almighty has planned it all for your good. He has a master plan for your life. There may be things you don’t understand right now but do not worry. All the pieces are not in place yet. One day it will all come together and everything will make sense. Keep trusting Him.

7. Attention and recognition are what some crave. They love being controversial. They love making headlines and being in the limelight. Be careful. Think of the consequences when you’re alone in your grave or worse having to defend yourself before your Creator on Judgement Day.

8. Do you find yourself being tested again and again even though you’re doing all that the Almighty has asked of you? Don’t fret. Know that your trials are a blessing not a punishment. He loves you and sends the toughest tests to his best soldiers. Endure with beautiful patience.

9. Be proactive in your journey called life. No matter how long you’ve been walking down the road, once you see a dead end, a roadblock, a no entry sign, give yourself permission to turn around. You’re never stuck if you stay connected to the Almighty. He will always find a way out!

10. Do you have someone who always finds fault or advises you about your life, job, habits, etc? But the person never follows his own advice. Some have an agenda and can hurt your self-confidence badly. Don’t give your time to deceitful people pretending to be what they’re not.

11. You were waiting for that apology but it never came. And that is okay. Don’t focus on it. Let it go. Don’t let it consume you. Let the Almighty take care of things. Healing begins when you can accept that and move on with peace in your heart.

12. It’s wrong to assume that the ones who are quiet are empty, blank with nothing to offer. They might be busy reflecting, observing etc. They’d rather watch the drama from the sidelines. Silence has its merits so when it’s time to speak up, they will. Give people some credit.

13. Don't allow your circumstances to dictate your feelings. When you accept the Almighty’s Decree fully, you have the right attitude towards difficulties and trials. You accept there’s good in everything eventually. You’re able to walk firmly & steadily. You have firm faith in Him.

14. Be mindful of the one who pretends to be your best friend, only to turn around and betray you, spreading lies, untruths and hurtful gossip about you. Whatever the reason behind this behavior, it's important to protect yourself from it. Stay away from such people. Pray for them!

15. Almighty. There’s so much going on in the world around us. We beg You to help everyone who’s going through pain & hardship in life. Many feel broken. May You grant ease, remove all obstacles & guide us all out of difficulty. Make us completely dependent on You and You alone.

16.Don't you dare give up because you’re tired of waiting. How could you? Have you forgotten the Almighty’s promise? He won’t burden you with that which you have no ability to bear. Trust Him. He’s in full control & watching over you. Keep going; your breakthrough is in sight.

17. Do you often wonder, “why does this keep happening to me?” Perhaps it’s time for self-reflection. Perhaps the same behavioral patterns are giving you the same, unwanted results. Perhaps, the Almighty wants you to learn the lesson before He elevates you to the next level.

18. Leave people better than when you found them. Smile, lend a helping hand, use good words; do what it takes. Go out of your way if possible. They will remember you long after you left them. Such is the ripple effect of doing good. Never belittle any such act, no matter how small.

19. Remember, the Almighty can see the road more clearly than we can. He is in complete control of every aspect of our existence. So when He shows us the signs to move on, do it. Trust Him. Keep praying for guidance. He is our best Guardian and Protector.

20. Cultivate the habit of letting the Almighty deal with things beyond your control. Do your best and pray. When you pray, trust that He will work all things out for your own good. Then rest assured knowing that He wants only the best for you always.

21. At times, we condemn good people because we disagree with them over a few issues. We refuse to see the good they’re doing. Disagreements do not automatically make a person extreme, bad or evil. Learn to distinguish between the one who respectfully disagrees & the one who is evil!

22. Learn to ignore the behavior of toxic and irritating people. The truth is they are hurting; that’s why they choose to hurt others. They are full of fear and insecurity. Ignore the hate they spew. Respond with patience and love. Say a prayer for them.

23. Nothing is guaranteed in life. Don’t take things for granted. Here today, gone tomorrow is real and many of us have seen it happen to our loved ones and close friends. We never know when our time will be up. So forgive, spread goodness and pray for a good end to our journey.

24. Highs and lows are part of life. Don’t expect a smooth road. But the Almighty will never let you down if you bear beautiful patience and trust Him. Remember, your link with Him is eternal. Don’t waste time chasing this world because you’ll end up frustrated and miserable.

25. Give to charity what you would still want and use for yourself. Don’t just give discards, leftovers, etc. If you’re able to part with things you still want, you’ve shown the mark of a truly generous heart.

26. Everything is going to work out in the end. Read that again. You have to trust the Almighty. Tell your heart not to be anxious. Do your best and hand it over to Him. Don’t overthink and don’t listen to whisperings in your head.

Refrain from blaming, pointing a finger or condemning someone. We all sin, we all have our weak points. At the end of the day, we're all answerable to the Almighty.

28. Don’t judge people based on what you heard about them. Preconceived ideas are not useful. Give everyone a chance. Hear them out. Wouldn’t you like to be given that chance if you were in their shoes? Be fair.

29. Almighty. Grant us the ability to help each other more readily, the patience & understanding to deal with people, to always utter good words & encourage others. Guide us towards Your Path, the path of true success. Grant us the best of this world & the Hereafter. Ameen.

30. If you want to repent but you find yourself struggling with conflicting emotions, don't despair. Remember, Satan will do what it takes to steer you away from the Almighty. Understand his tricks. No matter how far down the wrong road you are, turn back to Him without delay.

31. Take criticism with a pinch of salt. Those doing more than you are unlikely to be the ones criticizing you. You will almost always be criticized by people who are doing less.

32. Grieve by all means but don’t let it consume you to such an extent that you forget who’s in control. Try to step away from your broken state, even if just for a moment. You’ll realize that you own nothing. Nothing at all. Everything is on loan from the Almighty.

33. We think our problems will never get better. That’s our whole problem. We lack faith. We lack trust in the Almighty. Has it occurred to us that He already had the solution way before we had the problem?

Almighty. Hear our humble, heartfelt prayers - for a world that’s fast falling apart, for people who are broken and injured, for hearts that have been shattered, for those who no longer have a home & who've lost loved ones. We pray for ease and comfort. Aameen.

35. Remember to engage your brain before the mouth is in gear. It’s easy to just blurt out what you feel in the heat of the moment. It takes only a few seconds of hurtful words to penetrate deep into a person’s heart and they may take years to heal, if at all.

36. You may be in the depths of despair but remember, storms don’t last forever. They can shake you to the core. But they will pass. The Almighty has promised us, with hardship comes ease. So the rain will stop eventually and you’ll find peace after the chaos.

37. People judge others based on their own actions, thoughts and ideas. Don't think others are sinful according to your standards. A good person always thinks good of others while the rest of the people will never be able to understand goodness. Work on yourselves first!

38. At times, our suffering is caused by the pain and suffering we inflict on others. Remember justice will always prevail. If not today then tomorrow. Ultimately, nobody gets away with anything. The Almighty simply delays it to give us a chance to make amends.

39. There’s so much hardship and suffering in the world. People are struggling with many issues from the pandemic to joblessness and mental health. Be kind in person and online. Don’t attack and condemn. Use good words and spread positivity.

40. Your journey back to the Almighty might be a long one. But don’t get frustrated. Stay true to yourself. It takes a lot of effort. Guidance is a marathon, filled with ups and downs. Some days are better than others. But persevere & seek His help. You’ll get there.

41. Think good thoughts. Keep doing good. But this may be difficult for many today who have a holier-than-thou attitude & are constantly judging others. Don’t forget that the person you looked down on may be the one who gets to Paradise before you because of a sincere heart.

42. Do you have trust issues? Do you think the Almighty won’t answer your prayers? He has brought you this far. Do you think He will abandon you? He has written your whole life story. Move on with firm faith and trust the next chapter because you know the Author.

43. The Almighty knows what you need and when you need it. So thank Him for every closed door now because He may open it later. Trust Him because His way is the best.

44. Whatever happens, even when all your plans fail and all doors seem shut, cry out to the All-Knowing, seek refuge in Him. He'll find a way out for you. Trust Him.

45. If you’re having doubts about someone’s character, observe them over a period. Time will expose the true person. Remember, you can’t fake it forever. Sooner or later the real identity will emerge.

46. The good you did for them, the pain you relieved them from, the smile you put on their faces even when you were facing your own trials. The Almighty never forgets. So keep doing good because goodness will come your way sooner than you ever imagined.

47. Trust the Almighty and trust His process. Remember, when He tests you, He’s testing your level of perseverance. How much will you endure? Will you trust Him even when the answer is “wait”?

48. Your calm life can turn topsy turvy overnight; shaking you to the core. This curve ball can throw you off and disrupt your life completely. But if you lay your trust in the Almighty, you'll get over the worry and sadness.

49. Everything good is worth striving for. If it were handed to you on a silver platter, it would be too easy; it would lose its worth. This is what Paradise is about. Reflect.

50. We all sin. Don’t despair. Keep repenting and asking for His forgiveness. Don't let droplets of  sins become oceans of regret. Be sincere and ask Him wholeheartedly.
