Ideal Human Being (Purpose of Life)  Worshipping our Creator, acquiring knowledge to become an ideal believer, serving humanity, making efforts in helping fellow human beings to be loved by Allah should be our mission. Deeds done with a pure heart, sincere intentions, with humility, love and care fulfills the mission of life.  Imagine a believer who always remembers and seeks help from his Creator, praises Allah by his tongue, in his heart, expresses gratitude for His bounties, is patient in hardships. He supplicates in all earnestness and always has good intentions. He follows the ways of the beloved Prophet (Peace be upon him, ) in his outward appearance and in his manners, conduct and etiquette. He is getting rewards at every step.

Allah's Blessings for you  This life is a one-time opportunity to achieve everlasting happiness in the life hereafter. Allah Almighty is showering countless blessings upon us every day. Every moment has a great potential to achieve high-ranks in the court of our Creator. Every minute is like a gold coin. The heart and tongue are gifts from Allah to earn millions of rewards for the Akhirah. Allah Says: “.. If you are thankful, I Will give you more ..” [Surah Ibrahim, verse 7]

Brotherhood and Love for Humanity  Islam teaches universal brotherhood as indicated and expressed in our daily prayers and our pilgrimage to Makkah. “O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into races and tribes, that you may identify one another. Surely, the noblest of you, in Allah’s sight is the one who is most pious of you. Surely, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” [Qur’an 49:13].  Islam’s mission is to serve humanity. Islam teaches us to help the needy without any discrimination of color, creed, race, nationality or religion. “The entire humanity is Allah’s family, and Allah loves him most from among His family, who benefits the family most”. [Mishkawt]

Dua and Power of Allah  Seek help from Allah, His treasures are infinite! Look up to Allah, Who looks after you. Keep facing Allah, Who is in front of you. Love Allah, Who loves you. Obey Allah, Who invites you. Give your hand to Allah, Who saves you from a fall…Loving hearts, spiritual contentment, forgiveness and mercy, are all from Allah. He is Eternal, All Powerful, Absolutely Just, Totally Merciful, All Loving, All Compassionate, All Gracious and All Forgiving.

Reality of Worldly life   This life is a one-time opportunity to achieve everlasting happiness in the Hereafter.  This world is but a station, not the destination. It is a place where we are sent to be tested. It is not a place to become lost in its wonders and temptations and be inactive, lazy or lethargic. "So did you think that We created you for nothing, and that you will not be brought back to us?" [23:115].  This life is all about controlling desires and protecting from the traps of innerself and the Devil.  For a believer, the place for enjoyment and desires is Paradise – with rivers of milk and honey, palaces of gold and silver, delicious food and fruits, beautiful spouse, always happy, always young, always healthy – a great kingdom for ever and ever for an unending enjoyment and bliss.

Happiness - Cure for Depression   Every tear of a believer is precious. Allah looks at the sincerity of our hearts and our actions. “Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest” (Surah al - Ra'd 13:28)
“Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer , verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)” (Surah al- Nahl 16:97)
“Whenever a Muslim faces fatigue, illness, worry, grief, hurt and sorrow, even gets pricked by a thorn, Allah in lieu of his sufferings removes his sins.” (Hadith from Bukhari). "Our anxieties, depression and worries are all created because we first make the decisions and then expect Allah Ta'ala to conform; whereas what we plan and decide is subject to Allah Ta'ala's confirmation." [‘Cure for depression’ by Shaykh Yunus Patel]

Blessed Ways of our Noble Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) and Salawaat (Durood and Salaam)
T
he Last in the chain of Divine Messengers of God (ALLAH), he gave to mankind the universal message of love and respect for all Divine Messengers. He could not read, write or even sign his name, yet he gave to mankind the most unique gift-the Quran; a complete code of life and a living miracle across all spaces and times.
He was born an orphan, lived a very modest life, never had much worldly means, yet by the power of his character and conduct he changed the face of earth and the history of mankind. He lived such a pure and transparent life that even his harshest critics could not yet find a spot of his character and conduct. He was the living embodiment of the Final Divine Revelation of God--the Quran.  Say (O Muhammad (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam)) "O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah” [The Holy Quran, 7:158]

For Every Muslim Sister, Youth and Parents  

Protecting our youth from trials of bad environment – What are the fruits of life of Taqwa? Why is Hijab necessary and protection of eyes needed for every Muslim family? A lesson based on the Noble Quran, Hadith and lifestyle of the pious - on the importance of Haya, protection of eyes and protecting the honor and dignity of woman.

Pious Friendship and its Effect on Character  A man adopts the religion of his friend. Every child is born with Islam but the family and environment affect his way of life. Pious Friendship shapes the character. The human heart has hidden treasures of matchless jewels. If found and applied, ordinary people on the street can become means of guidance to their communities, fountains of light, flag-bearers of justice and mercy, making the world a cradle of learning and illuminating the universe with divine knowledge.

Best Personality - without Pride and Arrogance   Spiritual diseases corrupt the heart and destroy good deeds. Arrogance is the mother of all Spiritual diseases. It is extremely important to clean up from arrogance, malice, jealousy, greed and show-off. Every action we do and every word we speak is being recorded. For complete success in this world and in the Hereafter, man needs to reform and change his life. He should quit the pursuit of desires and temptations and pursue the life of submission and obedience.

Best Personality - without Anger and Malice    The human heart has hidden treasures of matchless jewels. If found and applied, ordinary people on the street can become means of guidance to their communities, fountains of light, flag-bearers of justice and mercy, making the world a cradle of learning and illuminating the universe with divine knowledge.
Spiritual diseases corrupt the heart and destroy good deeds. Arrogance is the mother of all Spiritual diseases. Anger may causes loss of intellect, friendship and family relations - losing opportunities of good deeds. Controlling anger is a great step towards Islah and character building.
