i really need to let off some steam
my family is driving me nutz
only mom is partially practicing and everyone else doesn't really care
they don't know what living an islamic life is like and because i'm the
youngest...know one cares to find out...
for me..what i do..i do for Allah taala...to try to better myself...
its really sressing me because whenever i'm helping out with the muslim
community and its something really important..my family treats it as almost
worthless..it really hurts ...i'm trying to be a good muslim....not trying to show off or
anything like that
my time is really full....but i do make lots of time to spend with my
family...but when i do i feel my iman hits rock bottom...any speech is either critical
of me or a total waste....free time is spent around the tv...
my family and i love each other but this is really tearing my heart...i would
love to get away from them....and come back with them changed
i've tried to share what ever knowledge i get with them..but i just get told to
keep it to myself.....so i've been just trying to be a good example.....it
i don't like to complain...i know many are going through worse situations..its
just frustrating and hurtful when ur own family, who is muslim, doesn't want
to understand u and treats u as an inferior
i'm constantly getting ratted on for so many things ...i'm not an angel...but
i'm also human and make mistakes
and what really gets me...is being compared to other people's children who they
think are just perfect
i really wish that one day my family will be concerned about my
islam....someone ask me...'how's ur iman' ...or even praying in jamat...
my family cares so much about this dunya...it makes me sick and its having a
bad effect on me.....i feel homesick when i'm at home, because i'm not
surrounded by muslims
i feel really bad writing this...and having thoughts like these......
alhamdulillah for every situation....ya rabbi please make me stronger in all
this...indeed u are the source of all strength

I wish people would see the real beauty in islam.
Islam helps us as it reminds us of our creator and his wonderful creations, it unites Muslims and shows equality in the Muslim Ummah, it brings peace and encourages patience, it builds confidence and develops discipline, it helps make aims in life and last of all it gives something stable to hold onto in this world.
We shouldnt forget to seek knowledge from the Qur’an and sunnah and must think of life after death. Ppl should remeber that all our actions and deeds should be only for the pleasure of Allah in order to get to Jannah (heaven) InshaAllah.
Anyways just be patient and u will be rewarded. There will always be people out there trying to make you look like an extremist or abnormal, dont be put off as every time you suffer and ask for help from Allah, you will be closer to him.
“I am with him when he makes mention of me. If he draws near to Me a hand’s span, I draw near to him a arm’s length. If he walks towards me, I will run towards him.”
