It has been a long year with many ups and downs. It's now time to bid goodbye 2012 and say hello to the coming 2013! ^_^ Every trial insyaAllah will bring us closer to Allah if handled with patience and perseverance. Always remember that every ease comes ease!
The messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him), has shown us that the goodness and righteousness of the human being is connected to the righteousness of his heart, he says: "Beware, there's a piece of flesh in the body; if it is sound, the whole body is sound and if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt, and hearken it is the heart!" [narrated by An-Nu'man ibn Bashir - authenticated by Al-Albani, Sahih At-Targhib: No 1731]
