21st century opened new doors to the mankind, put forward new questions, brought new trends and made many fads outdated. Out of many good things it brought, one is realizing the value of spirituality and emphasizing on how to achieve it.

Remembrance of Allah:

Spirituality is the way to know yourself and your Creator. Zikr (remembrance of Allah) is one way to be spiritual and is the food for soul.  It is the mode to remember God and praise Him. Our Creator Almighty Allah says about Zikr:

“Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do.” (29:45)

Remembrance of Allah or the Zikr should be accompanied by the repentance on sins as it makes our ibadaat purer and us dearer to Allah Almighty.

No disease is terrible than the disease of soul. Every day we commit things that cannot be categorized as good. Sometimes we know where we went wrong and can identify the ways to repent on our sins. Yet there are times when we know something is wrong with us and we are being careless Muslims but we cannot find out what exactly went wrong and how to fix it. That restlessness and dissatisfaction should not lead us to frustration but to positivity as stated by dear Prophet Muhammad S.A.W:

And follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will wipe it out.”


Indulge yourself into Zikar:

Zikr of Allah is the easiest way to indulge ourselves into good deeds since it requires only pure intentions and sensitive heart. It not only provides us with opportunity to come closer to Allah but also helps us stay away from the bad and save the time that could be wasted otherwise. Hence it is safe to say Zikr is the key to satisfaction and success. Allah certifies it by saying:

“He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself and mentions the name of his Lord (do Zikr) and prays”. (87:14-15)

Brothers and Sisters:

Whose prescription to the diseases of soul can be more authentic and reliable than the Creator of Soul? He knows the causes, effects and cures of our frustrations, depression, and anxiety. And the simple solution He gives is………….

“Only in the remembrance of Allah will your hearts find peace” (13:28)

  1. […] Food waste or food loss is food material that is discarded or unable to be used. Various political organisations and entities have their own definition of what constitutes food waste. The causes of wasted food are numerous, and occur at the stages of production, processing, and retailing. A closer look will make us horrified at the amount of food wasted by humans, who simultaneously complain that food is not enough for the ever increasing world population.
