Enjoy Your Life

How to Enjoy Your Life

How to enjoy one's life? There are plenty of ways to achieve joy. One simple way is by being ready to appreciate all of Allah SWT's blessings that come your way. In a way even a routine lifestyle is still a blessing for we may not be able to deal with an upheaveal in our lives.

Or perhaps life had been so comfortable and secure that even good things have become just a predictable routine and even a routine is no longer appreciated.

Looking Out of Your Window

Ever looked out your window and suddenly catch the glorious sunset? Or the flight of birds at dawn?

Despite life's occasional toils and troubles we have been blessed with lots of beautiful memories of joy which may have faded due to our preoccupation with chasing worldly pleasures.

Blessings from our Creator

We simply cannot equate wealth and worldly prestige with life's simple joys and pleasures. Such joys are usually related to experiences that touch our hearts and minds. Our inner consciousness will always relate and respond to blessings from our Creator.

Pleasure in the Simplest Things

Thats why we find great pleasure in enjoying fresh morning air, the purifying rain and beautiful flowers in bloom.

We Must Slow Down to Enjoy Life

When we are too busy, we just go through the motions of eat, work, stress, sleep, eat, work..... have we really been living? What is life all about? We care for the body - with good nutrients, spas, flashy cars, luxury homes.... do we make time to nourish our own soul?

Sura 55 Ar-Rahman (The Most Gracious)
Which of the Blessings of your Lord will you deny?

Everyday Mercies from Allah SWT

We find peace and joy when our soul is in harmony with our thoughts and emotions. There is so much joy in life's simplest pleasure like the flutter of fireflies, walking on the beach and enjoying all sorts of fruits and herbs from the earth.

What Do We Value More?

What do we truly treasure? Something sophisticated and high tech? Or the abundant gifts that come free of charge from Allah Almighty? That actually means His mercies are truly priceless!

Reflect, Reflect, Reflect

If we reflect about all the blessings we already have, we may realise we had been happy but did not even recognise it. Does that make sense?It does to me now.
