Always be mindful of Allah

Always be mindful of Allah 

Be mindful of Allah, because every time you think about Allah - His Mercy, His Compassion, His Kindness and His Favours towards you, you will find serenity and tranquility in your heart. Our very purpose in life is to worship Allah, through our actions and remembering Him. Dhikr is counted amongst one of the best actions we could do. 

Ibn Abbas narrated: "I was behind the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) one day when he said: ‘O boy! I will teach you a statement: Be mindful of Allah and He will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find Him before you. When you ask, ask Allah, and when you seek aid, seek Allah’s aid. Know that if the entire creation were to gather together to do something to benefit you - you would never get any benefit except that Allah had written for you. And if they were to gather to do something to harm you - you would never be harmed except that Allah had written for you. The pens are lifted and the pages are dried." [At-Tirmidhi

At every stage of your life, whether you are happy, sad or lost or miserable, seek Allah by remembering Him. As we recite regularly in our prayers, ‘To You Alone we turn, and You Alone we ask for Help.’ [Qur'an: 1:5
