Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah :
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) used to teach us the way of doing Istikhara (Istikhara means to ask Allah to guide one to the right sort of action concerning any job or a deed), in all matters as he taught us the Suras of the Quran. He said, "If anyone of you thinks of doing any job he should offer a two Rakat prayer other than the compulsory ones and say (after the prayer): -- 'Allahumma inni astakhiruka bi'ilmika, Wa astaqdiruka bi-qudratika, Wa as'alaka min fadlika al-'azlm Fa-innaka taqdiru Wala aqdiru, Wa ta'lamu Wala a'lamu, Wa anta 'allamu l-ghuyub. Allahumma, in kunta ta'lam anna hadha-l-amra Khairun li fi dini wa ma'ashi wa'aqibati amri (or 'ajili amri wa'ajilihi) Faqdirhu wa yas-sirhu li thumma barik li Fihi, Wa in kunta ta'lamu anna hadha-lamra shar-run li fi dini wa ma'ashi wa'aqibati amri (or fi'ajili amri wa ajilihi) Fasrifhu anni was-rifni anhu. Waqdir li al-khaira haithu kana Thumma ardini bihi.' (O Allah! I ask guidance from Your knowledge, And Power from Your Might and I ask for Your great blessings. You are capable and I am not. You know and I do not and You know the unseen. O Allah! If You know that this job is good for my religion and my subsistence and in my Hereafter--(or said: If it is better for my present and later needs)--Then You ordain it for me and make it easy for me to get, And then bless me in it, and if You know that this job is harmful to me In my religion and subsistence and in the Hereafter--(or said: If it is worse for my present and later needs)--Then keep it away from me and let me be away from it. And ordain for me whatever is good for me, And make me satisfied with it). The Prophet added that then the person should name (mention) his need.

Yesterday, I dream of Chester. He was in peace, having fun, and also he was young... That makes me think he is in heaven, full of joy and life... He thanked all the prayers and that we still remembered him. I wish someday all the pain of your neverending dream will be gone, but i'll always remember every single time you took away all the demons inside me. Love You Chazzy Chazz... Linkin Park forever. @linkinpark @chesterbe #makechesterproud#love#live#heaven#saviors#pain#joy
✨✨✨ white for all the people we've lost or didn't get to meet. Walking with those in suffering has taught me to love anyone who walks. Race, religion, gender, political views, or choice of spread of toast, my door is always open to you. I'm so heavy today, I feel it in every ounce of my being. I have truly checked out this week. Husband is inbound & I can't fucking wait to be embraced by the man!! I'm truly apologetic to all those I've rendezvous with this week, my body is present but my mind is in wonderland. Tomorrow will be better xxx .
2 Corinthians 16: Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day..... .
I'm posting this as I believe everything on earth is already readily used in heaven: "Papa, you might have been already enjoying our presence via Hkype (Heaven-skype), hehe. We went to your tomb for our remembrance. We know it is only your body lay down under and yourself is already in heaven. Valerie amazingly remember the day we had your funeral Papa. You have finished your race well. May we all too ya Papa!" #missingyourkisssonmyforehead#missingtohearthewayyousing#Heaven
Don't get me wrong I believe there may be an alternate place where the soul or bodies energy may go, throughout history civilisations have described similar places and the body just being a vessel and not defining it all with gods and religion but visitors from another world or alien life which is an uncomfortable subject for most people these days not a "realistic" topic but a floating man above the clouds is, considering what life forms on this planet are capable no one dear consider what a much older and further evolved species could do haha. But hey I stick to my words. Religion has gone beyond discipline and teaching love, respect and cooperation, it's fallen to control, it's all bought and paid for these days but what some people learn about how to live life is a blessing but the childish naive mentality that comes with a lot of people these days is sad, but we are so decided as a race I prey there is somewhere our consciousness may grow outside of the physical realm when we die as our life experience is so tainted and limited by the rich and powerful, the greedy. People are scared to die and they need something to believe in after death, I suppose but it's a childish nature, I'm not scared to die, I'm afraid to not exist, to not have consciousness so yes an afterlife would be nice, I guess we'll find out one day, consciousness is amazing, and invaluable, but memory is precious and both are a gift. #life#good#caring#consideration#compassion#people#animals#environment#thefuture#deep#thoughts#heaven#afterlife#Aliens#evolution#attitude#perception
