By Ml Yusuf Omar

With the Chinese economy still in struggles, at least five European countries sitting in more than one trillion euros of debt and the shaky oil prices of the Arab world, the future of the global economy doesn’t look very bright. Major corporations are feeling the pinch as the dollar rate dances and teases their budget and small retail shop-owners are getting used to passing their time with a fly catcher as every day, more and more customers wake up unemployed. In such trying times, there is no method that guarantees a six figure turnover nor is there any method that ensures retirement at 40. However, by following the pure teachings of Islam, blessings are guaranteed irrespective of the size or type of business you run. read more

How Often…

How often do we look in the mirror and see a stranger?
How often do we look at ourselves and see what “people” want us to see?
How often do we appreciate the little things in life?
How often do we walk around blindly even though our eyes wide open?

How often do we allow people to hurt, harm or abuse us and just let it be?
How often do we forget about ourselves and only think of others?
How often do we shut out or pain and put on a fake smile?
How often do we listen to lies and let disrespect continue?

How often do we back down from what we want, and do something different instead?
How often do we please those who doesn’t even give us a second thought?
How often do we miss the beauty around us because all we see is darkness?
How often do we cry in silence because we are ashamed to show our feelings?

How often do we feel Unique?
How often do we feel Beautiful or Handsome?
How often do we feel Priceless?
How often do we say no to ourselves but nor to others?
How often do we feel happy rather than sad??
How often do we tell ourselves “I am Proud of you”?
How often do we Love ourselves?

I suggest that we start right now!!
Stop looking for approval from others and let yourself shine!
You are Beautiful
You are Unique
You are Priceless
You are Amazing
You are You!
