Well, it’s that time again of the year — where you’re supposed to reflect within yourself. Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.

Surat Ar-Ra`d (The Thunder) – سورة الرعد

يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron. QS 13:11

Dates that come around every year help us measure progress in our lives. One annual event, New Year’s Day, is a time of reflection and resolution.

Surat Ađ-Đuĥaá (The Morning Hours) – سورة الضحى

وَلَلْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لَّكَ مِنَ الْأُولَىٰ

Indeed what is to come, will be better than what had gone by. QS 93:4

Everyone and everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us.

Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – سورة البقرة

كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَن تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَن تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَّكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not. QS 2:216

Last day of 2015 people — looking forward for a far more prosperous, full or riz’q (provisions), barakkah (blessings) & rahmattan (mercy) 2016 by the grace of Allah, Lord The Almighty, InSha’Allah.
