Life is a gift 💝 Feeling happy and enjoying life is something we all want to do, and one of the most effective paths towards happiness is to have a grateful heart. Being grateful means we are feeling blessed and happy, thus giving a more positive mindset. A more positive mindset will allow us to make better decisions, leading to less stress and increased happiness, and feeling more positive about life will increase the pleasure we receive from life.

The opposite to being grateful is always wanting and needing, and this is the path towards unhappiness, and this can create emotions of jealously, envy, resentment, and so much more. These are all negative emotions, creating stress and unhappiness, but having a grateful heart blocks these feelings. There is nothing wrong with wanting something, it is when we forget what we have and only focus on wanting and needing, this then leads to stress and unhappiness. 

Gratitude helps us to grow, to expand, to become better, it brings joy and laughter into our life and into the lives of all those around us. To have a loving and grateful heart, and a positive disposition, will attract more positive things into our life. Gratitude also gives us a higher sense of self worth, because being grateful for everything in our life also shows that other people have also made positive contributions to our life. Instead of seeing the bad, we are more focused on the good, feeling more relaxed and less stressed. Feeling happier and less stressed is also good for health, plus a happy smiling face is a beautiful face. 

Gratitude also reduces the need to feel in control, it makes us more accepting of our life, because we are grateful for what we have. When we look at life through the eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a magical and amazing place. Gratitude can turn common days into beautiful and amazing days, turn a normal job into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. 

A grateful heart is a beautiful loving heart, so let's start the day with a smile, feeling thankful for life and everything in our life, and experience all the joy and beauty that life can offer, because life is beautiful ❤️🙏❤️

The greatest ten days of the year are upon us, more rewarding than any other days of the year. These days of Dhul Hijjah are an opportunity for increased self-reflection, worship, repentance, forgiveness, compassion, growth, unity, and steadfastness. The heart that wishes to come closer to Allah takes advantage of these blessed days. The heart that is frustrated with heedlessness and spiritual decline strives more during these blessed days. The heart yearning for purification and renewed dedication cannot afford to miss out on the reward of these magnificent days. 

No matter how distant you feel you are from Allah, don't miss out on the blessings of these ten days of Dhul Hijjah, particularly the Day of 'Arafah (9th Dhul Hijjah, August 10) - the reward of which is forgiveness for one's sins from the previous year and the forthcoming one. 

I ask my dear community members and friends to forgive me for my severe shortcomings this year, particularly as I took a major step back in community involvement while focusing on my own research and life projects, and in the process I have missed many messages, interactions, and beneficial functions. If I've wronged anyone personally, I ask you to forgive me and to pray for me, and if it is a right I may restore then please reach out to me directly. Please also pray consistently and sincerely for our brothers and sisters struggling locally and globally, as every sincere du'aa makes a difference. 

May Allah accept from you and us during these blessed days, and allow our hearts to unite upon that which is pleasing to Him.

Happy Eid
