Heart Therapy Part 2

- Your heart desires and your body follows suit. The faith in your heart governs and navigates you through your choices.

- The believer is always optimist. He has a trust between himself and Allah and knows that the reward is in the hereafter and that which appears to be overbearing is not so, and Allah will not burden a soul more than it can bear.

- Beware of excessive anger because it leads you to the embarrassing position of apologising for your misdeeds.

- If you are given a duty you feel you are ill-equipped for then Allah will provide you the strength given that you are sincere!

- The place you are in now is the best possible outcome you could have been in.

- People follow others more on what they do than what they say.

- Allah knows the outcome before it arrives. Allah's knowledge is what determines the future. You cannot have chosen better than the outcome you are in. Do not second guess what Allah has provided for you.

- Destiny is based on knowledge of Allah and choices you make based on the opportunity Allah presents you with.

- To feel anger is not wrong, acting on anger is wrong.

- There is a house in Jannah for the one who excuses even if they have a right not to.

- It is forbidden to discipline your child in a state of anger.

- The strong person is not he who overcomes others with his strength, but rather it is him who controls himself in the face of anger.

- Judge a persons forbearance when he is angry and his trustworthiness when he is craving for something ~ Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud

- If you are happy where you are - reflect on it!

- Anger roots within ourselves. Our hearts and soul ignites the anger and Shaytaan then enters to push you to build that anger to an unacceptable level and act on it.

- Preoccupy yourself with your own faults and shortcomings and you will find the faults of others insignificant in comparison.

- If someone comes to you with the statements of others then know that he will go to others with your statements.

- Confront that which is wrong head on. Do not bury your head in the sand and expect it to go away. Combat and take the initiative to stop it.

- A person will utter ONE word without paying attention to it's tremendous effects and consequences and this will drag them down to the pits of hell-fire.

- The moment you judge someone and make a statement and think you are above them and that you are purer be sure that it will come back to you. Be careful about what you say about others. Do not take liberty with your tongue to talk about others.

- Allah has warned us that none of us are pure enough that we can say something about someone else and say that we do not have anything they can say about us. Allah has sheltered you and concealed your shortcomings so do not have the audacity to harm your family and loved ones by the repercussions of your slanderous behaviour.

- Always project a level of honesty and transparency.

- Always aim to be an icon in righteousness. Set an example in your mode of life to inspire others to come close to Allah.

- Do not teach your children hasad. Do not teach them to value your love for them based on what you do/give to others (materialistic). Do not teach them to value relationships based on what they can possess.

- Hasad (jealousy) is not appreciating what you have. Always appreciate the ni'amah of Allah.

- Reflect on the difficulties of others to find peace and happiness in your own situation. When you only look at people above you and not below you, you begin to forget your place in life.

- Find comfort in the fact that Allah is in charge of all your affairs.

- Do not make lying your first impulse of self defence.

- A hand that is giving is better than the hand that is taking.
