"Sometimes it takes just one unloyal person to make us lose trust in all of humanity. Then it takes just one truthful person to make us trust in people again.
Sometimes it takes just one toxic person to make us hate the whole world. Then it takes just one caring person to make us fall in love with the world again.

Never underestimate the power of just one person, because each of us has the capacity to either brighten up or completely destroy someone else's world."

~Mark Fahmy


May this Ramadan be life changing. 🤲🏻

How's life going on?


Misconceptions regarding Shab-e-barat (15th shaban) and their answers:

🔹 Misconception # 1:

Allaah descends to the first heavens on this night to forgive us.

The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said: "Every night when it is the last third of the night, our Lord, the Superior, the Blessed, descends to the nearest heaven and says: Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?. "
(Bukhari 1145,Muslim 1261)

🔹 Misconception # 2:

This is the night when our fate, lifespan, and provisions are decreed.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When the drop of (semen) remains in the womb(of mother) for forty (days) or forty nights, the angel comes and says:
“My Lord, will he be good or evil?” And both these things would be written.
Then the angel says: “My Lord, would he be male or female?” And both these things are written.
And his deeds and actions, *his death*, his livelihood; these are also recorded.
[Sahih Muslim Hadith 6392]

🔹 Misconception # 3:

Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on 15th shaban

Prophet (peace be upon him) said “Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.”
[Tirmidhi, 747; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1041. ]

🔹 Misconception # 4:

The night of the 15th of Shabaan should be singled out for special kinds of worship, prayer, etc. and they have a great reward

There is no saheeh hadeeth concerning the night of the fifteenth of Shabaan.So this night is ordinary like other nights and the reward for praying/worshiping in this night will be the same as other nights

🔹 Misconception # 5:

Fasting on the day of 15th shaban has a special and great reward

Fasting on 13th 14th 15th of every month is recommended not only on 15th shaban
Prophet (peace be upon him) said “If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.”
[Tirmidhi, 761; al-Nasaa’i, 2424; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1038. ]

🔹 Misconception # 6:

This is the night when the souls of departed ones return to their families.

This thing has no basis in quran or ahadith.
The souls can never return to this world. This is a fabrication and lie invented by people

🔹 Misconception # 7:

Look at all those people doing it. How can they all be wrong?

Allah says, “And if you obey most of those in the earth, they will lead you astray from Allah's way; they follow but conjecture and they only lie.”
[Al qur’an 6:116]
So this is a weak argument that majority of people do it and believe in it.



Sleep helps your body and brain function properly.
A good night's sleep can help improve your learning, memory, decision-making, and even your creativity.
On the other hand, insufficient sleep has been linked to a higher risk of conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, kidney disease, high blood pressure and stroke.

🔷 The amount of sleep you need depends on various factors — especially your age. Following are general guidelines for different age groups:

🔹 4 - 12 months ➡️ 12 to 16 hours per 24 hours, including naps.

🔹 1 - 2 years ➡️ 11 to 14 hours per 24 hours, including naps.

🔹 3 - 5 years ➡️ 10 to 13 hours per 24 hours, including naps.

🔹 6 - 12 years ➡️ 9 to 12 hours per 24 hours.

🔹 13 - 18 years ➡️ 8 to 10 hours per 24 hours.

🔹 Adults ➡️ 7 or more hours per 24 hours.

Eating too much food causes weight gain and associated health problems obviously but it causes spiritual harm as well. Too much food hardens the heart , dulls the mind, increases drowsiness and makes it even more difficult to control ones lust and desires.

For this reason, one should only eat what is necessary to maintain optimal health and energy.

The concept of rizq is so beautiful. Like even when you eat a piece of fruit it was always written for you, from the moment it grew from the tree, it went through all these people and travelled all this way until it was in your hands. It was always meant to be yours. Everything in this world that is meant to be yours has your name on it and Allah has willed it to eventually reach you, one way or another, from every rice grain you’ll ever eat, to every person you’ll ever love. It’s so comforting to think about. 🤍

~Via Muhajibah


When the path seems long
Learn to trust in your footsteps.
Trust that you will one day reach your destination
Trust that you possess everything you need
Trust that when you face hardships and roadblocks along the way, you will be able to venture onwards
And trust in yourself and your ability to get somewhere
By taking the first step
Planting the initial seed
And embarking upon the first adventure.

Sometimes when the road ahead seems long
It is easy to feel overwhelmed by what lies ahead
And discouraged when contemplating the number of steps that are required
To arrive at the journey’s end.

But you don’t change your life through one huge, brilliant act. You change your life one step, one moment, one choice and one action at a time by being intentional about where you devote your time, effort, energy and attention. Consistency allows you to move closer to your goal and make progress. We each move at different paces and different rates during different seasons of life, but may continue to make progress by focusing on persistence.

Everything that is now magnificent and brilliant once started out small.
The tallest tree stemmed from the smallest seed
And just as what you begin with is not indicative of what you will end up with
Where you begin is not a reflection of where you are going.

Starting small brings experience and may pave the way for bigger and better success and while new things may be initially small, they may grow and flourish over time, producing bigger results.

Moving at a slow pace does not make you unproductive
Hardships, tragedies and challenges do not make you unsuccessful
And no matter how small your progress is, each day you are one step closer and further along your chosen path.

We often desire for change to be instantaneous, to immediately see results and reap the fruits of our labour. However, with time and experience, we come to observe that choosing to plant a seed is more important than the rate at which it grows. And while your start may be small, it is who you become in the end that truly matters.
