Give me patience

In the process to discovering a few intrinsic details about Islam and the power of Dua in Islam, I understood patience is utmost important in the process. It is required that we keep patience, keep making Dua till we get what we want and believe that Allah has the Grandest and Best of the plans for each one of us.

I was looking at this one project opportunity in KSA(Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). I would so love to go there and see the work culture. How the place where our beloved Prophet(SAW) was born and lived is? What is the culture? What can I learn? And I am planning to learn Arabic as a language Insha’Allah.

Let me tell you, the concept of having separate lifts(elevators) for men and women… awesome. I totally want to go and experience it personally. It must be bliss, going from a place where men and women are sandwiched together in the same lift.

I am hoping and I am praying constantly for Allah(SWT) to help me in succeeding in this endeavor. I also find keeping patience has been difficult for me my entire life. I can see that I am improving Alhamdulillah. I will keep my patience and will continue to supplicate to Allah(SWT) to grace me with an opportunity to visit this beautiful place and leave me with beautiful pages in the book of my life.


Law of Attraction or Iman

I thought I would come to this topic much later. But I could not resist. After all, most of the Life Coaching revolves around Law of Attraction. I am not convinced at the moment that Law of Attraction is Islamic. If I pick and choose where I apply law of attraction, I might be good. But, if I start applying LOA in every aspect of my life. I am afraid I will be committing Shirk.

As I put out in my subject, Iman is more important to me than believing in Law of Attraction. I think it is better to stay away from anything that has the slightest chance of leading me to sin. Love of Allah is more important than love of small things that we want to attract in life. Moreover, hasn’t he The Almighty promised us good in this world and in the hereafter if we are follow the path he taught us through our beloved prophet(SAWS).

There are good things about Law of Attraction, like Being grateful. Again we just feel grateful here, we are not particularly being grateful to Allah The Almighty – which in essence is wrong again. Also, I might unknowingly follow something which might be against islam.
