Life is Short, Very Short

So make the best of it in seeking the love of Allah (SWT)

Only good deeds remain when we leave this world, that's what really counts

Purify Your Soul To Find Peace

The purification of the soul is an important foundation for being closer to God.

The human soul has two sides: it has a positive as well as a negative side.

The purification of the soul means minimizing the negative and maximizing the positive.

It takes time and a lot of effort, but with perseverance a believer increases the light which reaches his/her heart.

This leads to inner peace as fears and worries of matters of this world gradually disappear and are replaced with a stronger faith and a deeper love for God.

If you are really searching for inner peace, do your best to purify your soul.

Reduce Material Desires

If you want to increase in spirituality and inner peace, don't look on the material side of this world.

Look instead to the spiritual realm.

Human beings have 2 main ingredients: body (material) and soul (spiritual).

Finding the right balance is very important to live a happy and sustainable life, and when you want to tilt the balance towards the spiritual, then try to reduce the material.

Material desires pull you down to earth, whereas spiritual refinement makes the soul uplifted and at peace.

If you are really searching for inner peace and closeness to your Creator, don't focus too much on the material.

Get Rid of Negative Peer Pressure

Negative peer pressure, especially among the youth, is a very strong factor which makes people go astray away from the Path of God.

Never give in to this type of pressure.

Be strong and say NO when a colleague offers you an alcoholic drink or marijuana.

If you are really searching for peace ask God to guide you to His Straight Path, and be firm in following that Path.

All of God's prophets were mocked and ridiculed by those who disbelieved, did they give up?

No they didn't. They prayed to God for help and persevered

If you are really searching for peace choose good friends and keep away from toxic company.

Spiritual Progress

Going from spiritual phase to the next higher phase is no doubt a sure path to finding inner peace.

According to Muslim scholars, like Imam Dardir for example, there are 7 stages for the refinement of the soul, or seven categories of the nafs (soul) including the commonly known three categories.

1- Al-Nafs Al-Ammara bil sou' (the soul that commands evil), and this is the worst spiritual state to be in

2-  Al-Nafs Al-Lawwama (the soul that reproaches when committing sin)

3- Al-Nafs Al-Mulhamma (the illuminated soul that understands)

4- Al-Nafs Al-Mutma'inna (the soul at peace)

5- Al-Nafs Al-Radiyah (the satisfied soul)

6- Al-Nafs Al-Mardiyyah (the soul that receives rida or satisfaction)

7- Al-Nafs Al-Kamella (the complete soul)

These 7 types of souls are mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah, and explained by Mufti Abdel Rahman here:


if you are really searching for peace, refine your soul, and ascend in closeness to God

Take One Day at a Time - Don't Worry About the Future

Many people worry about the future

What will happen to our career / business in 2019?

How will we cope with BREXIT?

Will the economic crisis get worse?

These types of questions often come to mind and cause worry and anxiety.

But a believer trusts God

He is not too worried about the future because he knows God will provide.

And this is part of finding inner peace

So don't worry and trust God

Tomorrow will be a better day, insha Allah

Slow Down and Be Calm

One of the problems of our world today is that we are always in a hurry

We need to get so many things done in so little time, and as a consequence we are in a rush, running most of the week to be "on-time"

An important key to find inner peace is to slow down

Don't over-commit your day with more than what you can accomplish in a sustainable and sound way.

By doing that, you will find life is more balanced

And you will have more time to think, reflect, pray and be closer to God.

If you are really searching for peace, slow down and take it easy

Pray With Focus & Read the Qur'an Slowly

When in a hurry to perform the five daily prayers, one does not get the spiritual benefit of the prayer.

The same applies to reading the Qur'an, if you read it quickly you miss many of the deep meanings that God guides us to in His Book.

The best thing to do is to pray and read Qur'an slowly, in order to give yourself a chance to ponder, reflect and benefit.

By doing that, you will find more spirituality with better understanding and more inner peace.

So search for peace in your prayers and in the Qur'an, and remember that Allah (SWT) is Al-Salam, the source of all peace.

Don't Worry About the Future & Trust That God Wants What is Best for You

Sometimes we worry too much about tomorrow

But why is that the case?

Two main reasons:

It is part of human nature to worry and have anxiety and fear of the unknown. And tomorrow is unknown to us all.

Some people expect the worst, others expect the best, and the more positive and optimistic you are the more likely you will overcome this barrier for inner peace. And this is made easier if you believe in God and trust that He wants the best for you.

The second reason is that we live in difficult times. In the old good days, the pace of life was slower and change took time, unlike today, as fast change is all round us, too fast for most people.

And the best support we can find to help us in difficult times is Divine support, so ask for God's help to guide you and show you the way, and trust in Him.

He is the Most Merciful, the Most Kind and He answers the prayers of believers when they ask Him.

So trust God and never forget to seek His help to find peace and to live a good life here and in the Hereafter.

Never Be Arrogant

Be humble

God does not like the arrogant

Realize that He is the Most Great

He created all this amazing universe

How for a second could you have arrogance in your heart?

If you are really searching for peace, be humble and submit to Him

Focus and Concentrate in Your Prayer

The five daily prayers are an immense source of peace and tranquility to the heart of a believer, but there is one condition: to focus and concentrate on al words and actions performed during Salah.

When one reaches the state of humble submission (Khushu'), a door is opened with our Creator, and Allah brings us closer to Him, and opens us for us more meanings in our Qur'an recitation, which increases faith and brings more peace.

Please check this advice on how to find humble summision, and increase in faith and peace 5 times a day, or more
