what makes you want to follow someone, do u follow everyone back
Generally things that interest me or are similar to my own blog. Also, people who have very unique blogs that post their own photography, poetry, thoughts etc.
No I don’t follow everyone back, I try to check out as many blogs as I can but I don’t always get time.

Remove love of the Dunya from your heart and it becomes yours for the taking
Why is it that when you fall down, and you try to cope with your life, you are nostalgic for what coulda been. You are nostalgic for the success you could have achieved. I have been doing a good job on not crying over spilled milk, but shaytan gets the best of me at times. I'm passionate about something but my bitterness is slowly killing my ambition to achieve it.
Usually those feelings which you speak of are more down to yourself than shaytan. It usually comes from your own nafs; you desired something so much and even though you couldn’t achieve it that desire remains there. Its that very desire of what could’ve been that clouds your sight of what can be, your own nafs becomes your enemy in restricting you from success just because you couldn’t be successful in your initial desire.
Shaytans part in this is that he makes you forget about the divine decree of Allah, that everything happens by Allah’s will alone. Shaytan makes you forget that whatever is destined for you will come to you and if it isn’t then it won’t. The only way you can remedy those feelings is by accepting that Allah alone chooses what is in your destiny and you remind yourself that whatever Allah chooses for you is the best thing for you, Allah says in the Quran; “…But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (2:216)
By completely accepting that what comes in your life is by Allah and it is the best thing for you, you can become content and feel no disappointment for something you didn’t achieve. Stop looking back at doors that closed and look at all the doors Allah has opened for you, and remember to just relax because you’re in safe hands :)
May Allah forgive me for any short comings.
I know we all complain that kids tv shows are rubbish today compared to what we used to have but has anyone watched the amazing adrenalini brothers? It’s ridiculously good, I can’t get enough of it!
Assalamu alaykum, how does one forget about a sin they have committed? I repented and all and In shaa Allah by the mercy of Allah I hope I have been forgiven. But like the regret from the sin keeps haunting me and I really just want to forget about it. Advice?
Wa alaykum salaam.
Firstly, masha’Allah feeling regret from a sin is a sign that one has truly repented with sincerity. It’s a great blessing of Allah that He has enabled you to repent and you should be grateful for this as many of us go through our lives sinning and never ask for forgiveness before its too late. There are many verses in the Quran and many hadiths that highlight the mercy of Allah in repenting from a sin but one of my favourites and probably the most relevant one is; “The one who repents from a sin is like the one who has not sinned in the first place.” (Ibn Majah, Tabarani)
Shaykh Zulfiqar gives a beautiful analogy, he says that today if you create a file on your computer or you receive a message on your phone and you decide that you don’t want to keep it, you have a delete button, one press and it’s gone as though it never existed in the first place. Likewise, Allah has given us a delete button and that is repentance. Allah knew that humans are weak, He knew that shaytan and our own desires would cause us to make errors so He enabled us with this delete button of repentance. Ask for forgiveness and it’s gone, you have a clean new slate but shaytan will make you linger on that one sin to stop you from progressing. Remember just as that deleted file is gone so is your sin, so why hold onto something that doesn’t exist anymore? Shaytan is trying to make you despair of Allahs mercy, know in your heart and constantly remind yourself that the sin is gone and you have nothing to worry about and insha’Allah that regret will fade away.
May Allah forgive me for any short comings.
