Positive Thoughts: Part 3

The Importance of Positive Thoughts

Our thoughts have a powerful ability to determine our feelings and emotional states and ultimately affect how we behave, for better or worse. Islam teaches us to direct the act of reflection (Tafakkur), or deep thought, towards the signs of Allah, the names and attributes of Allah, to His blessings and wonders, to hope in the Hereafter, and to optimism. By controlling our thought processes in a positive manner, we can increase the effectiveness of our prayers and worship as well as relieve ourselves from the anger, depression, and anxieties that worldly thoughts induce.

Contrary to popular belief, we have control over which thoughts we choose to follow. We may not have a choice over which particular thought occurs initially in our minds at a given time, but we do have a choice to either ignore it or pursue it. read more

Purify A Solid Item

Question: How should one purity a bed, mat, etc if impurity falls on it?

Answer: If impurity falls on such a thing which cannot be wrung or squeezed, such as a bed, mat, jewellery, utensil, bottle, shoe, etc., then the method of purifying any of these items is as follows: the item should be washed once and then the person should wait. When the water stops dripping from it, it should be washed a second time. When the water stops dripping, it should be washed a third time. In this way it will be purified. [Bahishti Zewar Page 53]

Al-Tawheed   Matric Exam Tution

My four-year-old son told me that it was his stuffed animal's birthday today. Since this was probably the third birthday this animal had in about as many weeks, I commented that she seems to have a lot of birthdays. He explained, "Well, the older you get, the faster they come!"
