And all of a sudden..

Standard

I’ve been so overwhelmed with applying to this university and applying to that scholarship. What school what school what school! It’s all about me me me. I’ve done X amount of volunteer hours to get myself a good scholarship, i’ve applied here and did this, so my resume will look outstanding…

Then we got a phone call that my aunts sister in law passed away – May Allah have mercy on her soul. And i began thinking, subhanAllah that family (my aunts husbands family) have lost so many people. His brothers, and now his sisters.

It was a good wake up call for me alhamdulilah, step back from my overwhelming so lost in this dunya and think for what i’ve prepared for the akhira. Obviously, we do our best in this life with our affairs, and strive to do our best for the sake of Allah, but just reminder- No soul knows what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul knows in what land it will die. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. (Luqman:34)

Are you ready?

I miss miss miss x 23479 blogging! 😦 I need to get back to it insha’Allah.

Update on life- seniorities at its finest basically. Overwhelmed with school work and my own work, and everything else. Alhamdulilah.

Today at our school khutbah, the khateeb really hit home. Literally we were all like in awe, masha’Allah very powerful. He talked about thanking Allah.

When was the last time you thanked Allah, from the bottom of your heart, for the blessings he has bounded you with. Take a piece of paper and try writing some down. See how far you get.

PS. I have a tumblr – withmydreams.tumblr.com 🙂
