Depression is like a big black shadow that never ever leaves your mind and with the time it keeps on getting bigger and there is no way out for no matter how many things you try.People consult therapist,trying out different type of meditating techniques to relax the mind.As I conclude there is no hard and fast rule to get over sadness of life.Everyone just has developed their own way to carry on with life.Depression is like living in a prison and doing routine tasks and then at night or during day,something keeps on hitting back on your mind like why and how questions of life. Depression attacks mostly on people having positive outlook of life,as people with negative mindset does not ever look for anything good in life.
Enough of depression talks,it just goes on and on.I will not recommend you to switch your mind over thinking and get over it,or come on you are being so naïve,life is not ended,this and that.As saying these things will not solve anything.Following religious rituals is also not a solution at times.
Rather I will just tell you to follow simple steps to shun the depression for a while.
- Write,,,,yes it is weird but write anything,when you wake up,after checking mobile,write whatever comes to your mind.Write what you are going to do today that will benefit your health or mind..
- Charity…..Every week keep aside some money to give to anyone that needs it financially or cook some food for a needy family.Give your newly bought dress to someone needy,
- Call……to your relative or friend and ask them about their life or issues and do offer your help to them(helping others nourishes your soul)
- Food…..If you are eating so much of junk food,least you can do is that keep in your mind that every day you have to eat a fruit or nuts of any type.
- Keep a weekly journal of your personal goals,it could be anything hobbies that you want to learn or skill.We live in one of the best eras that we have so easy access to anything in life.Just google it and start to do whatever you want it.You do not need any tutor or you do not have to pay any extra charges to acquire a skill.
- Fasting……One more weird thing I know,Since I am Muslim and we fast a lot as our Prophet Mohammed S A W was used to do also.So try to fast on Monday and Thursday of every week or you can do twice a month.
- Write your bad habits or bad traits that you want to shun,try to find out ways to be away from them,build your own mind mechanism in that sense.Anything you follow bad today will have longer lasting affect because habits rarely go away.
- Cut down the planning and big goals of life for a while.Go easy, Rome was not built in a day.
- Change the narrative of life ….It is an ongoing process,there is going to be big highs and big lows…..Just keep going on to be best for humanity.Do not look for the results in the present.Or sometimes you just do the best and leave the rest.
- This is one of the important aspect of life,Make connection with God strong.Say your prayers every day and send him thanks for other blessings of life.We do not thank God from heart,we just complain and complain.
That’s it for today!!!! Keep focusing on yourself,keep bettering yourself as person in the Mirror is YOU only!Stay blessed and take it easy as none of us is Einstein or gonna get a Nobel peace Prize for stressing out so much 😛
Look at the mirror,that person in front of you is the one who is with you everywhere you go.That person is created by God and God loves it before anyone else can do.
God loves you unconditionally and he sends you to this world as per his Will.He have designed your destiny and is aware of every situation in life.He wants you to rely on him and then yourself.It is true that as a human nature we depend on our family’s love and care.Friends come secondary as our support in life and then your partner in life and as the life goes on we depend on our children and this way list goes on and on and we feel deprived,isolated at every stage in life.Financial problems,unstable mental health are the causes of irregularities of life.
We all have situations in life where none can help or support us except our being.We face trials where only way out is believing in yourself,doing things that will nourish your soul.Motivating yourself to keep on doing positive things of life even if you don’t see any progress.Focus on your health and skin routine check care.Everyday you must do at least new thing which would say that “yes!! you did it for yourself”.Apply the DIY(Do it yourself) hack in every part of life.Life is here and now,other meaning of present is gift which means that present life is actually a gift.We at times regret that we did not lived the past happily and most of the time we overthink about future which ruins the present moments.It is difficult to take a leap of faith and ignore the problems and live the present but you have to do it for Yourself. Help people who are in more worse situation than you.Humanity helps you to love yourself.All that negativity inside is not serving you any good,release it all.God is with me all the time and I should be happy to be thankful to him to show him gratitude.God is great,he will handle it today and today as he handle it yesterday and saved you always!

It’s been long since the last blog l uploaded,I had a bit hard time to write something new.Hope so that you all are fine and having joyful time of life 🙂 zull hajj have started all over the Islamic World and it means more focus on the prayers and increment of deeds in the next 10 days.
Well coming to the topic of the blog ,,,aah one my favorite ayats of Quran since childhood and I learnt it so quickly that never forgotten any words.It is one of my favorite Ayat and my day is incomplete without reciting it.This Ayat makes you fall in love with Allah and Quran.They are so beautiful verses and to be honest it’s words seems so soft like melting ice.It is a total one verse and all the words connect perfectly describing the supreme qualities of Allah.
We all have been known to it’s importance that we should recite it once at night before sleeping and also when leaving home or when we feel endangered.Ayat ul Kursi is the 255th verse of Surah Baqarah.It is known as Throne verse,most popular and one of the powerful ayat of Quran.It is easy to read and it’s words are perfectly articulated word by word.
It depicts the magnificence of Allah,when you read it slowly word by word you will feel peace inside that Allah is always with you everywhere and he will save you if any trouble occurs.It is an ayat revealed to mankind for their protection and even if you have every kind of man made protection built around you,this ayat will save you in an unexpected ways. It strengthens the imaan and reminds you that only Allah is your savior and Supreme Lord.So even if you are asleep and you have read the Ayat ul Kursi before sleeping,it means Allah have taken the authority of you during sleep and if you read it outside you will not get harmed or will be saved Insha Allah!…………..
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Allah! There is no God but He,
the Living, the Self-subsisting, the Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him, nor sleep.
All things in heaven and earth are His.
Who could intercede in His presence without His permission?
He knows what appears in front of and behind His creatures.
Nor can they encompass any knowledge of Him except what he wills.
His throne extends over the heavens and the earth,
and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them,
for He is the Highest and Most Exalted.

This blog is about Interviews of Popular Pakistani Celebrities and their journey of life.
These interview seems so unique because incidents of their life are describe in depth.After like ages these interviews does not revolve around typical questionnaires but they are invigorating and soulful.
So I am talking about Speak your Heart with Samina Peerzada.
Finally some mind blowing,well researched and non-judgmental show which is all about discovering different phases of life.Celebs laughed and cried in all this one session. Insight about their life challenges will give you some life learning lessons that you can apply in your life also.We can all relate to each other when talking about how to tackle tough issues .Most favorite ones of mine are:
- The one with Saieen Zahoor
- The one with Nabila
I found their talk to be precise and yet there is something really unusual that they wanted to be successful but not for worldly things yet to bring a change in society and to spread the message of love,kindness and evolution.Yet the one with Juggun Kazim is highly recommendable also.Juggun is one of my favorite Tv host.Her morning show is down to earth and connects to reality of life.
Here are the links of some of the interviews:
That’t it for now! Watch,learn and enjoy.(There are many more also)

Asalam O alaikum buddies!
Since Friday is one of the most religious day for all muslims around the world and we pay special attention towards Qurans and prayer,so today I will be posting precise summary about Surah Al-Waqiah.
It is said that Surah al waiqah should be recited daily if you want to have increment in your wealth or provision,like getting a job or to straighten the business issues.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
It was revealed in Makkah having 96 ayats it’s literal menaing is The Event which is referred to day of Judgment which can also be called Final day of this World.
As we ponder on the translation of this Surah,Allah has guided in a way that there will be 3 categories of human beings on final day.Book of record given to those on right hand will enter jannah and left hand ones will enter Hell and the third category will be the ones who were foremost in acceptance of Islamic Faith and performed their duties righteously and there will be no questioning to them.
There will be different levels in Jannah for the ones who are granted the entrance into Jannah.Luxusries will differ.Prophet Mohammad (SAW) and his companions will be at the highest level of Jannah.
Punishments in hell has been described in this Surah for the one who are disbelievers and it will be their penalty to rot in hell.Punishment such hot boiling water to drink and they will be thrown into blazing fire.
Conclusion-In the last verses it is advised us to read quran and not show laziness towards reciting it.
As I have got the main idea from the translation analysis is that when we are frustrated as when our needs or wants not being fulfilled,we should not focus on gains or losses of this world.Allah mentioned about the environment of the Hell and Paradise so that we got ourselves on the right path and not to be saddened about this dunya.We are the ones who has the ability to make right choice that either to follow path of allah and his prophets or follow the satanic path.This dunya is temporary and we have been given limited time to choose the forever.
This is very short summary as there many more things have been revealed in this Surah and I would recommend you to read it’s translation by yourself.
