1 – No matter how negative you may feel, always try and communicate in as positive a manner as possible. If you choose words that are negative, that’s the impression you will leave with the person on the receiving end. So don’t respond when you’re angry or when others annoy you! – Mufti Ismail Menk

2 – At times, we condemn good people because we disagree with them over a few issues. We refuse to see the good they’re doing. Disagreements do not automatically make a person extreme, bad or evil. Learn to distinguish between the one who respectfully disagrees & the one who is evil! – Mufti Ismail Menk

3 – When we judge by our own standards of appearance, we fail to acknowledge the Almighty’s focus on the state of our hearts. The trouble is today, many think physical appearance is the most important because that is what man sees! Our hearts are tainted. Don’t fall into this trap. – Mufti Ismail Menk

4 – Satan always wants to make you feel depressed and defeated. Quit feeling that way. Pick yourself up. Turn to the Almighty and walk in His Path. – Mufti Ismail Menk

5 – Your life isn’t just about you. The Almighty created you for a purpose. Use whatever He has blessed you with to impact the world & those around you. Don’t be selfish. Help as much as you can. Spread goodness & kindness. We have a limited time on earth. Use it productively! – Mufti Ismail Menk

6 – There are people who won’t hesitate to provoke you, trying their best to bring out the worst in you. When they’ve achieved that, they’ll play the victim and make you feel bad. Be mindful of such people. They really need help. Try your best to remain calm. Keep your composure! – Mufti Ismail Menk

7 – Your mind can be your worst enemy. Train it well. Don’t dwell on negativity. Don’t let Satan take control and corrupt it. Always ask the Almighty to help you submit to His Decree. When you’re able to achieve that, you’ll reach a state of calmness and serenity! You’re content! – Mufti Ismail Menk

8 – Don’t let your pain make you unkind. Nobody knows what the other person is going through. There is too much suffering in the world already. – Mufti Ismail Menk

9 – Take charge of your life. Focus on the positives & don’t dwell on the negatives. Satan will steer you towards worldly matters, cloud your mind & take you away from the Almighty. Stay firmly rooted to your faith. Stay vigilant. Embrace your own strength & know your self-worth. – Mufti Ismail Menk

10 – We’ve all had those days when we don’t want to get out of bed & face the world. That’s when you need to trust the Almighty even more. Build a strong bond with Him. An unshakeable faith that applies to all aspects of your life. It will see you through in this life & the Hereafter! – Mufti Ismail Menk

11 – Jealousy is toxic to the soul. It can ruin you from the inside out. You can remove it by loving yourself & who you are. You need to accept, be grateful & be satisfied with what the Almighty has chosen for you. He has given you so much. Don’t look at the blessings of others! – Mufti Ismail Menk

12 – Don’t feel that you have to tell everyone what you’ve been up to in your life. You don’t! Nobody needs to know everything. Don’t announce it on social media too because having people with eyes that constantly pry into your private life is not healthy. It attracts envy & hatred. – Mufti Ismail Menk

13 – Learn to quieten the negative voices in your head. If you start entertaining them, they will get louder & demand more attention. It’s all part of Satan’s plan to get you down in the dumps. Don’t give in. Put up a barrier of positivity around you & see how your life shapes up. – Mufti Ismail Menk

14 – Don’t curse the hardship you’re facing. Every trial has a silver lining; a blessing in disguise. Learn to bear good patience. Let the situation unfold. Do your best and let the Almighty do the rest. You’ll emerge stronger and better prepared to face whatever He sends your way. – Mufti Ismail Menk

15 – Learn to listen with your heart. Before long you’ll be able to understand the Almighty’s Plan for you. Focus on the positive, the good that’s happening, the blessings He’s bestowed on you & soon you’ll be living a life of gratitude & praise. It will change your outlook forever! – Mufti Ismail Menk

16 – Be extremely careful when making assumptions about others. When you lack complete information, you have to fill in the blanks yourself; based on what you may have heard from others. You connect the dots and as a result you’re most likely to jump to the wrong conclusion! – Mufti Ismail Menk

17 – Laziness & putting things off are all part of the Devil’s plan. If you keep procrastinating, before you know it, years have gone by. But what’s worse is you may not live to do it as no one is promised tomorrow. You’ll never know when all this will end. Don’t delay. Act on it now! – Mufti Ismail Menk

18 – Some people get threatened when others shine their light on the rest of the world. They think if you shine bright, it somehow dims theirs & gives them less opportunity to find their own success. Remember, the Almighty has given us all a chance to be successful. Everyone of us. – Mufti Ismail Menk

19 – Life is fragile. Today you’re here, tomorrow you’re gone. So don’t stress too much about your worldly affairs. Take it in your stride. You’ll be spending forever in the Hereafter. Build your resources (deeds) to secure a better life. Satan will distract you, so remain vigilant! – Mufti Ismail Menk

20 – Don’t engage friends who speak ill of their spouses to you. No matter how close you are to them, learn to keep friendship separate from their personal life. You have to draw the line. The erring spouses could have repented & changed their ways & you’re still bad mouthing them. – Mufti Ismail Menk

21 – No one said life was easy. The twists and turns, the roadblocks; they’re all part of the journey. When you don’t understand what’s going on in your life, just take a deep breath and say a prayer. Almighty, this is Your Plan. Your Wisdom and Guidance will see me through it. – Mufti Ismail Menk

22 – More are suffering from diseases of the heart because of social media. Jealousy, unhappiness, feelings of inadequacy take root when the difference between real or fake vanishes. Sadly, a lot of what we see is fake. Don’t fall for it. Flaws & imperfections make us human! – Mufti Ismail Menk

23 – The company you keep says a lot about you. Friends have a big influence over how you feel, think & behave. Beware the ones who will mould you to become like them. Some will control you till you mimic their behaviour. If you’re weak-willed, chances are you’ll succumb & cave in! – Mufti Ismail Menk

24 – Nothing is ever taken away except that something equal or better will come your way. So whatever you think is falling apart is actually being rearranged by the Almighty to give you what you ultimately want. Ultimately; not today, not even this week or a month but for a lifetime! – Mufti Ismail Menk

25 – Don’t fret if your efforts don’t receive any recognition or publicity. Know that the Almighty is protecting your sincerity and work from corruption. Most importantly, remember, He loves those deeds that are small and consistent. They have the most benefit in the long run. Mufti Ismail Menk
