Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)

Posted in Islam on June 4, 2016 by souljette

Asalamualaykum,

Well, It’s everyone but just feel the sadness today.

Muhammad Ali has passed away .. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhir rajiun

May Allah (S.W.T) grant him Jannah. Ameen.

He was one of those people who changed the view of Islam and introduced Islam to the States. Now, Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali are both gone but they will remain in everyone’s memory.

I can’t say much but there is a beautiful article written by Ustadh Ismail Kamdar that I would like to share which sums it up.

muhammad ali

A few hours ago, the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74. We ask Allah to accept his good deeds, forgive his shortcomings, and enter him into Paradise.

Muhammad Ali
1942-2016

Muhammad Ali left the world today, and people from all walks of life are united in their sadness at the passing of this legendary sportsman. But Muhammad Ali’s legacy is not defined by sports alone.

The love that people have for Muhammad Ali comes from a much deeper place. It comes from his courage, his passion, his compassion, his humanitarianism, his sense of accountability to God, and his determination to accomplish goals that seemed impossible.

Initially, I was going to write a list of my favorite Muhammad Ali quotations. However, being that Muhammad Ali had the gift of speech, there are simply too many to write about. I decided then to write about what Muhammad Ali represented to me.

For me, Muhammad Ali’s legacy was proof that there is no barrier we cannot break, no stereotype that cannot be overcome, and no goal too high to achieve. The exception being things outside human control, like health and death.

Think about it. Here is a Muslim African American named Muhammad who has just passed away. Yet people all over the world are saddened by his loss. When you think about all the racism, Islamaphobia, and other forms of bigotry that still are so prevalent in modern society, this is amazing that the death of a Muslim could cause such universal sadness. When you think about the racism that existed at the time in which he rose to fame, it seems almost impossible that someone could achieve what he did.

Achieving the impossible was always a challenge that Muhammad Ali love. After all, he was the one who said:

“Impossible is just a word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Muhammad Ali overcame every barrier people put in front of him. He proved that Muslims and African Americans can accomplish their dreams and goals, despite all the bigotry that exists in the world. He showed us that we should simply push through towards our goals and ignore, or better yet, challenge those who promote hatred and intolerance. To put it in his own words, Muhammad Ali said:

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

Courage was a way of life for him. This can be clearly seen in his defining moment, when he refused to enlist in the army and fight in Vietnam. In that moment, Ali showed us that you can say no, and that you should said no and bear the consequences, when pressurized to do something wrong. From his entire life, this is the moment I remember him most for. He showed me that having the courage to say no is one of the best things a believer can do.

Pleasing God by caring for his creation

One of the biggest tests of life is fame and wealth. Muhammad Ali had achieved the highest level of fame, and the wealth that goes along with it. Often this much fame and wealth can lead people into living selfish indulgent lifestyles. Yet Muhammad Ali dedicated his retirement to serving humanity and making this world a better place.

Once during an interview, he was asked about what he would do when he retired. Ali replied, “When I retire from boxing, I want to focus on meeting God, and serving the community,” He also said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” These statements indicate the kind of man Muhammad Ali was deep down inside.

Beyond the flashy charismatic athlete, he was a humanitarian who feared His Creator and prepared for the Afterlife. He did  not allow worldly success to distract him from the ultimate success. He spent his retirement in helping people, guiding people, and uplifting society.

Muhammad Ali truly a gifted athlete, and a gifted speaker, but his legacy is much more than that. From Ali, we learned:

  1. Dedicate your life to meeting Your Creator
  2. Serve humanity and make this world a better place
  3. Aim high, aim to be the best at everything you do, and don’t let cultural and racial barriers get in the way of success
  4. Don’t let worldly success distract you from the ultimate goal
  5. Be brave, and do the right thing, even if there are consequences for doing so
  6. and finally, constantly grow and evolve.

I’ll end with one last quote from Muhammad Ali on that last point:

“The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”

A legend died today but I hope that many more legends grow. There are a lack of that nowadays.

26 years

Posted in My LIfe on May 28, 2016 by souljette

Asalamualaykum,

Yes, I am 26 years old.. I turned 26 couple of days ago and just began reflecting on my life. I started thinking about how I spent 26 years of my life. It is unbelievable really. I feel like I was just 16 last year .. How did I grow 10 years older? No idea really.

Every year has been eventful since I began to understand. A variety of seasons and a variety of circumstances with a pinch of sadness, happiness, adventure and love. There have been times where I felt that I can never get up and I will never get the strength to recover and today here I am a Doctor doing my best to go on. I have learnt to be alone. I learnt to only depend on Allah (S.W.T). I know I have changed so much. I am not the same person I was last year. I feel like I have grown a 100 years.

Faith

Darkness has always been there. Always trying to creep in and make me pessimistic. Shaytan has tried so hard to make me break but I had Allah(S.W.T) dragging me back to light. I grew out of it and Alhamdulillah. He has broken me only to make me a better person and stronger person and a more independent person. I have learnt to depend on no one but Him. That can be bad and good I guess. Good because I have no expectations. Bad because my heart is guarded and doesn’t trust easily.

Alhamdulillah for everything though. Everything I am today is because of Allah(S.W.T) and my parents who have tried to be there no matter what. I have been alone but have had mental support. I must say I have no regrets in my life Alhamdulillah. I do have goals though. I want to take care of the Ummah along with taking care of my family. Make dua that I am able to do that In sha Allah.

Until next time,

So another country…

Asalamualaykumm Everyone,

Yes, I know I might just get cursed out for not updating everyone. I was supposed to update this blog on my Doc experiences but I honestly have no time and I have to and I will ..I seriously will soon although they are all fading away from my memory but I will In sha Allah.

So, I have news.

As I have mentioned I have finished my MBBS and completed my internship. I did mention that right? I hope I did hehe sorry if I didn’t.

So, after that, I decided to give exams for abroad because well for my current situation I have to think about how to get by and let us be honest being a doc doesn’t pay much. I want to do for the sake of Allah and I want to be a doc no matter what but I have to look for an alternative as if you want to do for the sake of Allah you can’t just earn money for yourself and docs don’t even get that SubhanAllah.Your sweat, your sleep, your blood, and still pennies. Whatever the case I decided for PLAB in U.K and also applied for Masters in the U.K

Alhamdulillah I got in. Now I’m doing my Masters in Public Health Nutrition in the U.K.Yes, my traveller mode, as usual, is on. You all know me as a Traveller. I had to work really hard but also relied mainly on Istikharah. I honestly had no idea where my life was going and my only aim was to do for the sake of Allah.

Now, Alhamdulillah I am here in the U.K and DROWNING in studies. SubhanAllah but one thing is for sure .. my imaan has increased and I have joined ISOC of the university and feel more connected seeing the people here who practice. May Allah increase my iman in sha Allah.

Make dua for me that Allah lets me achieve what I need to for His sake in sha Allah.
