What I firmly believe is that it is never too late to change for the better.
Every day that follows each is a chance given to us by Allah to improve and get closer to Him.
Our life can be easily taken away any moment.An accident,an earthquake,a hurricane,a tsunami or a life threatening disease can easily bring us to death.
The Almighty has a hold over everything.Alhamdulillah,we have been given opportunities in the form of a new day......
Every day.Every hour.Every moment.
And the best part is when we are aware of our mistakes,realise them and accept them.It is a sign that Allah loves us and wants us to improve.
So when we know we are doing something wrong......Just stop doing it.
For the sake of Allah.....It may be difficult,for example,to control your anger.Yet, just remember that Allah loves people who control their anger.And you abandon your urge to fight and retaliate during an annoying situation.That is just for Allah.You have not cared for duniya then.
And sometimes when we acknowledge our mistake we may be punished.Either directly or indirectly.At such times we must not feel wrong to admit our fault.We must do our bit to turn over a new leaf and leave the rest to Allah.
In the begining,we may fail in the pursuit of improving ourself.But we must keep trying.Just for the sake of pleasing Allah.
This is how I try.
May Allah always guide us to the right path and may Allah be pleased with all of us.Ameen
Hope I was not too philosophical.
