“Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.”
(Surah Radd 13:28)
My iPhone died at about 2pm and out of pure habit, I kept looking at it every few minutes. What exactly was I expecting? A notification for.. Anything? Eventually I realised that Its always about that connection to the fast paced world that drives us, “home” is where WIFI connects automatically,what is the WIFI password?How exciting is it when you walk in to a public area and the WIFI notification of ” always on” appears? …everywhere we go, whether we chillin’ or shoppin’, workin’, whatever it is, most of us are we looking to be connected to the world in someway or the other, whether its checking your email, browsing through social media, having a quick chat with your girls and guys, and there is nothing wrong with that obviously..but all that is Dunya (This world). And what is the concern of the believer? That which is the reward of Akhira,(The Next) the reward of Allah!
The Question: How do we gain these rewards for Akhira, wellll, its pretty simple..
The Answer: Use that same energy to find connectivity with Allah, Subhanallah! If you want to talk with Allah, read Salaah, if you want Allah to talk with you, Read the Quraan. The fundamentals of faith.

And Allah says Allah (swt) says: “Take one step towards me, I will take ten steps towards you. Walk towards me, I will run towards you.” [Hadith Qudsi] ameen ya rab, how merciful is our Allah?
So, I’m not saying abandon your Phone or tablet, lets just try to busy our hearts and minds with the remembrance of Allah. Its almost like, we need to become “always on souls” that are able to connect with Allah allday, errday! Perhaps your 5 times a day Private Chats with Allah strengthens that connection, so what about some browsing the speech of Allah for 5 minutes after each salaah? What about capturing that image of Nabi Muhammad SAW’s sunnah? Sending Salaam and Salutation to Nabi Muhammad SAW, we text while driving right? Send your duas and requests and thanks to Allah even when your energy is low, what is light on the tongue, is heaviest on the scales, Alhamdulilla, Subhanallah, Allahu Akbar ❤
We depend on Allah without even realizing it, make the remembrance of the Almighty that happens consciously and subconsciously, automatically connected and always on
Ameen, Ya Rab
