For my African Sistaz
By the way you guys....I love this song. It just appeals to my afrocentric side...
Remember that your Lord forgives those who ask him for forgiveness and he accepts the repentance of those who sincerely repent, and he accepts those who sincerely come back to him.
Show mercy to the weak and you will be happy; give to the needy and you will be well; do not bear grudges and you will be healthy.
Be optimistic for Allah is with you and the angels are praying for forgiveness for you, and paradise awaits you.
Wipe away your tears, think well of your Lord, and chase away your worries by remembering the blessings Allah has bestowed upon you.
Do not think that this world is ever perfect for anyone. There is no-one on the face of the earth who gets all that she/he wants or is free form all kinds of distress.
Be like a tall tree with high aims; if a stone is thrown at it, it simply lets its fruits drop.
Have you ever heard that grief brings back what has been lost, or that worry corrects mistakes? So why grieve and worry then?
Do not except trials and calamities; rather expect peace, safety and good health, if Allah wills.
Extinguish the flames of hatred from your heart by forgiving everyone who has ever hurt you.
Ghusl, Wudu’, siwak and being organised are effective medicines for all kinds of stress and worry.
