And whoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allâh, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allâh will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allâh has set a measure for all things.

[Surah Al-Talq, Verse 2-3] 

A reconnecting Muslim, I am not at all pious or try to act in this matter. I believe in what I believe.

I have read friends’ statuses on Facebook about how God’s provisions to his followers. I am a firm believer that God will not bestow you with hardship/pain that he knows you can’t handle. And I do believe that if he does not bless you with something you desire, he has other much better plans stored for you waiting for the perfect time which/where(source) you can never imagine.

For a couple who has been trying to conceive, For others who has limited wealth, For those who are looking for happiness, For those who yearns for what you desire, don’t despair. Allah might have blessed you all differently; some with a roof over your head, the love of your family and especially your spouses, others with wealth. Look around at what you have. Be grateful and be patient. Insya Allah one day he will fulfil what you need.

Sometimes we have to look beyond what we don’t have and focus on what we do have. That way we always be grateful for we are living another day today, able to be with our loved ones. Just my two cents worth.

The Happiness Worshop by KikkiK

I attended KikkiK’s Happiness Workshop last month! It was a major impromptu! Had a late meeting in the city and hence put my name forward for the workshop to fill my time waiting for the peak hour traffic to die down…

As per their KikkiK’s website and brochures, “Happiness is a journey, not a destination, so there’s no better time to create your happiest life. Start living the life you want to live by doing more of what makes you happy.

Discover how in an inspiring workshop:
• Explore what happiness means to you
• Learn how to celebrate the little things 
• Plan to welcome more happiness in”

I wasn’t depressed. Likely unhappy but i just need that boost. A little inspiration to be happier. Be in touch with the things or areas that i overlook or have forgotten. To maintain or improve my positive outlook in life and be happier of course.

The workshop was beneficial. They work alongside Gretchen Rubin’s, The Happiness Project book. Hence, they complement one another. 

Highly recommended!
