Things to Do

  • Every time you feel like you can't take it anymore, talk to Allah. He is the greatest of listeners.
  • Do not lose your temper. Don't let the devil ruin you. Don't let the devil win the battle. Every time you lose your temper, you lose against the devil. You've got to win, don't you?
  • NEVER disrespect your parents. Make them feel proud of yourself. They don't ask much from you. They just want a bit of your time reserved for them. They just want you to love them like they love you.
  • Forgive people every time they make you sad for one reason or another. Every time you forgive people, Allah gets happy from you and rewards you for acquiring Allah's trait of forgiveness.
  • Understand. Every person has their own set of problems that they have to go through. Understand that. It's hard but it makes you a better person, trust me.
  • All those activities that mark you as a bad person, AVOID them.
  • Tell yourself that you are so much better than all those people who let you down.
  • Keep those hopes intact that certain people have from you. Don't ever give any person a chance to say that you disappointed them.
  • Prioritize life. Invest in life. Give time to life. You have to see how much time you have to invest in life in order to get the maximum profit out of it.
  • Pray, without any limitation or boundaries of time or place. Just pray. Allah lives in your heart. He is closer to you than your jugular vein. He can never turn a deaf ear toward you. He just NEVER does that. Not listening is just so unlike Allah.
  • Ask Allah for forgiveness. He is forgiving. If you truly, deeply, sincerely ask Him for His forgiveness, He gets so happy and forgives you right away and leaves you without a mark of sin on you.
  • Never miss a prayer.
  • Stay strong and focused.
  • Try to bring positivity in your as well as others' lives. Try to bring happiness for the people around you.
  • Follow the sunnah. We're not that pious, I know. But we can at least try to bring just a bit of piety in our lives.
  • Read more. It's better to get your brains engaged in a healthy activity.
