Smile. Speak beautifully or remain silent. Love your family. Greet Strangers. Display kindness to all. Forgive. Excuse others. Remain patient. Keep your promises. Maintain your ties. Give everything the right it deserves. Know your Lord. Know His rights. Be considerate. And purify your heart, soul, and mind. That’s my Islam.
You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to have unusual knowledge. and you don’t have to be super pious. You only need to be decent. Be sincere. Be real. Be straight up. Don’t be a fake. Don’t be like you think you try to act pious on the outside but you know what really happens in the inside. Be the best Muslim as you can be, that was what the Prophet SAW said. Do as much as you can.– Sheikh Khalid Yassin
Our prophet, peace be upon him, said: “My ummah is fine as long as they eat Iftar as soon as possible and eat Suhur as late as possible.– Al-Bukhari 2/241
None of you should wish for death because of a calamity befalling him; but if he has to wish for death, he should say: ‘O Allah! Keep me alive as long as life is better for me, and let me die if death is better for me’.–
The Prophet SAW, as narrated by Anas bin Malik RAA
