God's protection of us and His power released through us are directly related to His purposes for us. When we willfully or ignorantly for that matter, step away from God's purposes for our lives, we step out from under His protective care.
We the Youth are rushing to no where in particular. It seems all we see is the path cleared by our own minds. Yet when we patiently look with clear distinctive eyeballs void of "rims", we see the Truth that lies in our individual paths.
Be Patient my fellow Youth. For it is the only friend we have as individuals and as a whole. Be more disciplined than the soul breathed into you. For that will only help serve your purposes in this life and the hereafter.
God Knoweth Best.

In all my years,I believe I start counting my real life at the age of 14-15. WHY? Because the first teenage years are still seen as childhood years in my part of the world. Growing up,I knew so little about Islam. I mean,till date, I believe I still know little. But it keeps getting better by the years. I knew I needed to pray but I hardly did as a "child." I knew I needed to fast and I did it 'cause the mood was rightly global. I knew I needed to attend Arabic school and I did that so unwillingly and impassionately. All those years,I simply lived as an ignorant teen. Doing what I liked and living for the time without knowing in any way what death is/was.

Whatever good I got from my actions,I knew it was a test of faith. Whatever "bad" (as most of us call it) that was generated from either my actions or not, I knew it was simply a test of faith. However, i grew to understand clearly,that the true test of faith lies in the one thing that one struggles with on a daily basis. PATIENCE and DISCIPLINE (on the innate desire to have what one feels for at any time-a whimsical desire) In every aspect of the word,discipline was and is the most difficult thing to do without training or advice. Everyone has his or her own test. We live different decrees. No two people can live through one decree and come out the same. My life has been so imperfect. And absolutely the best life I could have been given to live. So is any one else's. But the most common attributes in all our lives, in all our decrees are Patience and Discipline. In everything we do and everywhere we are. Irrespective of who we are,what we are,where we're from and where we're headed.
Patience and Discipline in light and darkness. Alone and in company. Audibly and Silently. It takes a disciplined mind and body to serve God genuinely. It takes a disciplined heart to understand or strive to understand the ways of God. Because in the end, your test of faith comes with clearly, undisputed documented results in your grave. Written by no one except yourself. No lies will accompany you then. No forgery with a correction fluid will accompany you. It's simple and straight forward. Your actions and reactions during your tests will reward you. So why not discipline yourself in patience. And why not patiently discipline yourself? A reminder To those who constantly reflect.

When man is told God is All Knowing,he understands little but does not ask why. Let me tell you why.
God in His infinite Knowledge made known to all His creations some things and denied them others. Be it an angel,man,animal,etc. Because if all was known to them,they would declare themselves as God.
For man, he was honored by God Almighty four times; One,he was created by God's own Blessed hand. Two,God breathed His own spirit into him. Three,He taught man the names of things and Four,He ordered the angels to fall in prostration to him.
Do we then,dishonour ourselves by disobeying God?!.

However, until God decides otherwise, the tables turn within years. We find or will someday find ourselves in their position as parents and may have to face less, equally or even more of what we did to them. Whether in the child's young age or youthful age if you served your parents with goodwill, you will get your share of that which you served. And if you did serve them with a bundle of pain, nothing will avert your portion of the pain until God decides otherwise.
We are in an era when our parents are disregarded and hugely disrespected. Unfortunately, we forget or don’t even know that in them lies our Jannah (Paradise). We forget that they’re God’s first representatives in our lives. And Shaiytan’s (Satan's) immediate point of destruction in our lives. No matter how difficult or "bad" we think they are, we are taught to be patient with them. Patience we are told. Patience, we should strive to practice.

Obviously, just like always, God knew why He ordered us women to cover up. Fine, even if He had no reason, don't you think as a woman, covering up is far enlightening to your spirit than not covering up?!

He can change the condition of even the most faithful worshiper.
Indeed He makes him the man child.
We are on the verge of extinction minute by minute, day by day and need to wake up and smell the coffee before our sense of smell exits. With all the chaos in our lives, all the fun, all the pain, mysteries, hatred, joy and happiness, we must understand one thing.
We own nothing but ourselves. We own nothing except ourselves. This world and its laws allow us nothing except ourselves. And there’s nothing we can leave behind when we die Except the memory of ourselves. So the best we can keep and leave as memory to the world and the hereafter is the best in deeds and words. And God knows best.
