Yes, I mean you, you who sees this, you who reads this and you who thinks worthless of his ownself.
Ever felt unwanted, disregarded, taken for granted or let’s say a shadow?
Who haven’t, right? Probably every one of us felt this along our journey to who and what we have become right now, some may have, some may still going to and some may experiencing it right now.
Yes, we all have our stories but don’t think of anything else, I just want you to compose yourself and read the following things i would want you to put on notebook or on a sticky note that you have on your desk, and place it somewhere you can see and read every now and then.
I want you to realize how much of a blessing you are, not only to me, but to the people who loves you, the people you love, the Muslims, your siblings in faith.

Every person is an inspiration to another person. So be the best inspiration you can be to others, let your character speak to them, and let the teachings of your religion be seen in you and then let your words of utterance penetrate not their minds but their hearts.
Wallahi, We are Muslims, we are a gift to one another, a companion we will always have and struggle to be with in Jannah. Isn’t it time that we realize the value and purpose of our lives? isn’t it time that we prepare for our ultimate test?
We will come back to Allaah Azza Wa Jall soon, so make use of the gift, remind one another, be the best companion to one another, love for the sake of Allaah Azza Wa Jall.
and we pray that at times of grief, sorrow and pain we find the right companions that will remind us that these are just tests from Allaah Azza Wa Jall and that they might be our guiding lights that would enlighten our pathway back to the doors of Allaah’s Azza Wa Jall Mercy, and at the end may these companions of ours in this world that had helped us become closer to Him become also the companions of ours in the akhirah, dwelling in His Paradise forever.
