@a_mohammed, salam sister,I want to remind you for verily reminding profits the believer. The Messenger of Allah saws has told us that the du'a is the weapon of the believer. What we must bear in mind is that any weapon is only as good as the one using it. To perfect the use of the weapon first one must aquire patients that it will take in the training it will take to perfect the use of the weapon. Then one must apply all of the training when using the weapon this action makes one an expert. In islam iman is in the heart for this is the seat, then what is in the heart shows in ones speech and actions. Please my sister allow me to tell you what our beloved Messenger saws has said, " One day the companions where sitting with the Rasul and one asked, O Messenger of Allah there is a woman she believes in Allah she makes all of her prayers she gives charity she recites quran, but she is mean to her neighbors, never greeting them nor does she have goid words for them, what will be her outcome in the herafter? The Rasul replyd, she will be in hellfire. The companion then said, there is another lady who beiieves in Allah but she struggles with her prayers, she doesn't have much so she doesn't give in charity, she doesn't know many surah so she recites little quran, but she is very nice to her neighbors always meeting them with a smile and good words, what will be her outcome in the hereafter? The Rasul replyed, she will be in paradise." (Sahih muslim) Being nice to people for the sake of Allah is a very good thing please read sura 3:133-134, you will see two things there that we must do, also, Allah tells us in them ayats that He loves the doers of good. I pray Allah guides you to success. Salaam

learn to be independent of worldly pleasures.. Discipline even the simplest of your actions, say like do your own chores, keep your room clean, don't throw trash anywhere you please, be helpful to ur parents even before they ask for it and so on. keep ur mind open to the good and bad of life. Be ready to accept whatever fate throws at you and assume its all for a gud cause. Accept failure in ur faith, but never give it up and keep trying, just like the devil does with u.. Eventually ur faith would b stronger than d devil and u'll b able to over power it, even if u can't get rid of it completly.

Asalamu alaykum. What things do you want to improve? And what things do you already try doing?

Allah subhana WA ta'ala doesn't change the condition of someone until the person them self changes inside. Sister what that means is your intention needs to change. Before Allah subhana WA ta'ala will change your condition Insha Allah. Make since?

(Jul 29 '13 at 05:06) sadie ♦ sadie's gravatar image

yea. bas ive tried to change it. so how do u change ur intention correctly then?

(Jul 29 '13 at 05:11) a_mohammed a_mohammed's gravatar image

By your actions. And by emptying out the contents of ones heart and being honest about what it is that needs changed or improved. Then striving to change it. Example if you have a thought that is not good correct it by declaring the thought as bad and replace it with what is good. Same with what you do, if you go to do something bad correct it and replace it with an action that is good. Salam
