My favourite quote for motivation

“Do not grieve over what has passed unless it makes you work harder for what is about to come.” Umar ibn Al-Khattab

Many a time, we mull and shed tears over what we lost. But what good does crying do, if not bestow ills unto the crier? There’s no denying that loss hurts however, living is too ephemeron to be wasted mourning. Get up, dispense all that anger and frustration from the loss into strength and work harder, tomorrow promises to smile upon you.
This quote gets me every time something doesn’t work my way, I shrug it off and keep a cool head relying on Allah solely! #ramadan

Love this! It is so important to have utmost trust (tawaqqul) in Allah. I think this concept of tawaqqul needs to be firmly planted in our hearts and mind.
It is part of Imaan from the 6 pillars (arkanul imaan). Specifically the final one which says that belief in Qadaa and Qadr and that good and bad (Khair and shar) both come from Allah. So it predestined anyway so what’s the point of mulling over it!

Barak Allahu feek!
