Your relationship with others and yourself

Your relationship with others and yourself

1. Surround yourself with people that remind you of Allah 

Choose to be around people who bring you closer to righteousness, people who remind you of Allah and encourage you to do good deeds, the ones who support you and believe in you in the good times, as well as the bad times.

2. Pause and assess yourself

Frequently assess the state of your heart and think about the way you affect others. Does your character and the way you speak to and treat others, bring them closer to Allah ,or does it drive them away?

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Allah the Almighty said: I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he mentions Me. If he mentions Me to himself, I mention him to Myself; and if he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in an assembly greater than it. If he draws near to Me a hand’s length, I draw near to him an arm’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.” [Sahih Muslim ]

Physical Connection with Allah

Physical connection

1. Performing prayer

  • The five daily prayers can be seen as a constant refresher of our faith. It revives us spiritually if we engage in our prayers consciously, and not just treat them like a cardiovascular activity

2. Reading and pondering over the Qur’an

  • Commit to and set aside a certain time in the day where you can sit down, read, and ponder over the Qur’an, even if it’s just one verse a day.
  • Recommended timings: right after fajr prayer as it’s a time of blessings.
  • The most important thing: find a time that works best for you and that you are able to stick to consistently.
