Recently, I’ve started exercising again. I learn Tajweed and recite the Quran with a teacher weekly. I also notice I feel better when I gain through spiritual knowledge. At the moment, I’m learning about Sayyida Fatimah al-Zahra (RA) and her virtues. My heart softens learning how she overcomes her setbacks and stress, and how she would always put others first ahead of herself, fi sabilillah. I’m humbled to derive life lessons from the seerah of Ahl Al-Bayt and their Companions.
I cut down my social media usage because I see no benefit in being fed with curated images. With that extra time, I do other things to feed my soul. I try to balance my time for personal growth and development, with some social activities on the side.
Having good company that reminds me of Allah is important.
