Life is fragile.. Handle with prayers.
I was pondering over a famous Dua (supplication) that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) used to say at times of anxiety or sorrow, and I realised how wonderful this dua is for Productive Muslims everywhere.
If we look at all the six elements that the Dua above is asking Allah for refuge from, we would realise that all of them are anti-Productivity elements that if removed from our lives we can move forward much quicker and be more productive.

Sad and sorrow?
Allahumma amin :)
Di saat kau letakkan dahimu di lantai dalam sujudmu, atau di saat kau mengenakan hijab penuh di bawah terik matahari, atau di saat kau membaca Al Qur’an dan matamu basah oleh air mata, maka di saat-saat seperti itulah kau akan menyadari bahwa kau tidak memerlukan apapun atau siapapun dalam hidup ini kecuali ALLAH. Dan untuk saat-saat seperti itulah.. aku hidup.
islamic-quotes: Love your creator.
Disconnect from the world and connect with the Creator..
(O You Who changes the hearts, make my heart firm on Your religion.)
A deserted man holding on to a wooden board in the middle of the sea being tossed to and fro by waves is not in any more need of Allāh than you are, sitting where you are.
Dua before sleeping & after awakening. #islam (Taken with instagram)
We lay our heads down
We get comfortable
And we sleep.
Little do we know of the complexities:
Our soul is removed from our body
Yet remains on a string, loosely hanging,
Your life determined by a thread,
This could be your moment,
Your last breath, as the soul is let go Allah may just will it.
Our lives are our souls,
We are just hanging on some string
Drifting from side to side
Searching for the right path.
A sigh of relief is breathed as we wake for another day,
Trying to earn His pleasure,
May He accept our efforts.
Temporary are these bodies of ours
Moulded to every last detail.
I only pray that when my string is cut loose I return home,
where a Believer yearns to be,
And I get to see His face.
The Almighty, the Magnificent.
Never be lazy to perform your prayers because there are millions of people who only wish to come back to life so that they only prostrate to Allah to rescue them from the hell fire (Courtesy of Islamicway)
