Today is an awesome day 


Yesterday was a struggle but today I feel so much better. I woke up with peace, love, thankfulness and clarity in my heart and soul. Today I am thankful for the people in my life and the love and support given to me!

Today I am happy and at peace with who I am. What I am doing with my life. Today I woke up with clarity in my mind, heart and soul. As I laid down last night, I couldn’t breath. My nose was clogged. I had sinus pressure. But as I laid down I remembered a Hadith about a man who in his heart forgave those people who hurt him. I told Allah I forgive those people who have hurt me.

Today I woke up light hearted and the only thing I can attribute this feeling to, is to this thought and prayer.

In Islam, we are taught that Allah loves those who ask him forgiveness. And he loves those who forgives.

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.”

[Abu Dawud].

With Ramadan literally right around the corner, Forgiveness is one of the things we ask for while fasting and we learn to forgive those people who have caused use hurt and pain. But most importantly we learn to forgive ourselves!

Think about that and learn to forgive yourself. Have a great Friday everyone!

Remember you can keep up with my daily thoughts, prayers and inspirations on IG, Facebook and Twitter.

Jumuah (Yuma en español) is a special day for Muslims. Jumuah (Yuma) for this is the end our week and a day for us to pray in congregation and listen to a sermon.

On this day there are three things we like to do:
1. Wake up and make Ghusl , a process of cleaning our body.
2. Adorn ourselves with our clean and best clothes
3. Arrive to the Masjid (Mezquita=Mosque) early to sit quietly and Dhikr until the Khatib is there to give the sermon.
4. The Reading of Surah Khaf (The Cave). It is believes when you read this Surah. Your minor sins are forgiven from one Jumuah to the next. Alhamdulillah.

As you can see there are plenty benefits for this day!

Alhamdulillah para la nueva día
!feliz Jumuah!
