And none mind except men of understanding. There is a lesson in this for those who have eyes. There is no god but He, the Mighty, the Wise. Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou pleasest without measure. Decide on one item that is good for you and that you know you can do.
However weak or off-track a person may be, he or she is usually strong enough to take one step in the right direction. The next day will offer this opportunity again.
Everything we say or do makes a difference, and it accumulates. The opportunity to make a better future is in the small steps we take hour by hour and day by day. Our time is truly our only resource in life and it is the most precious asset that we have. Imam al-Ghazali gives excellent advice on how to make the best use of it:. You should structure your time, arrange your regular devotions and assign to each function a set period of time during which it is given first priority but which it does not overstep.
For if you abandon yourself to neglect and purposelessness, as cattle do, and just do anything that may occur to you at any time it happens to occur to you, most of your time will be wasted. Your time is your life, and your life is your capital; it is the basis of your transactions with God, and the means to attain to everlasting felicity, in the proximity of God the Exalted. Each of your breaths is a priceless jewel, and when it passes away it never returns.
Unless we learn to manage our time, we will be unable to achieve anything of value: And of patience and constancy. Here, the Quran gives clear instruction on the activities that are worthwhile pursuing and spending our time in. Mindless, meaningless continuous entertainment is a complete waste of life and is entirely against the teachings of Islam.
It is something we must be very careful about since it is promoted constantly in our instant gratification and consumerism focused society.

We must be vigilant about our time and consciously decide how to spend it. We are accountable to God for how we spend our time. This teaching from The Quran and the Life of Excellence changed my life: He sets it high enough so that I will hit the bar and fall, until I figure out how to jump higher. Problems and hardships are an inevitable part of life. They are indeed a sign of life. We will only stop having problems when we stop having life. Once we accept this reality, we can move forward and change how we view our problems. Problems have purpose and meaning.
7 Life-Changing Lessons From the Quran
They are placed by God in our lives for our own benefit and growth. Through problems we expand, become stronger and rise to a higher level. Once we ingrain this belief deep within ourselves, our lives completely change. Sultan Abdulhameed explains it wonderfully: Those who fail in life think of their problems as punishments and shrink away from them. If we believe that God is Most Merciful, Most Compassionate and is our Sustainer, it is easy to also believe that problems exist for our benefit and always come with solutions. And therein lies the key to our growth:.
This aya tells us that with the problem comes the solution. The solution is not separate from the problem.

For example, if my problem is that I hate my meaningless low-paying job, the solution is to find a meaningful one that compensates me adequately. It is not easy, of course, to attain this, but the process of getting there will cause me to grow tremendously as an individual. And with faith, effort, sustained focus and determination, I will succeed. The problem itself, if we learn to focus on its possible solutions and lessons, holds the key that will free us from it.
However, it is important to be aware that if we wallow on the problem itself, instead of directing our energy to the potential solutions, and we lament constantly about how miserable our job makes us rather than confronting it by taking action, thinking of ideas and seeking other work, the negativity will attract more negativity and keep us stuck where we are. A very powerful exercise to change the way we think is: Whenever you think of a problem in your life, immediately switch to thinking about possible solutions.
Lack of self-confidence is an epidemic in our society. People look for it in all the wrong places where it can never be found. As Muslims, our strong sense of self-confidence is derived from our personal knowledge and understanding that God is always ready and willing to assist us when we pursue a higher purpose.
