Habits

“Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they’re too heavy to be broken.” Warren Buffet

Many of us have habits we wish we could let go of and habits we wish we could adopt, but we all know this isn’t easy. I find that I’ve formed many lazy habits concerning Islam. I try to start forming beneficial habits and I’ve found it very hard to keep them up. I like this quote because it’s so true. Once you realize you’ve formed a bad habit and try to fix it, sometimes it feels like it’s too late and feels impossible. But we know that we must change the problems we see in ourselves because Allah says in His Glorious Book:

“…Indeed, Allah will  not  change  the  condition  of  a  people  until  they change  what  is  in  themselves…” Surah Ar- Ra’d: 11

Just a reminder that change is possible, no matter the situation, with the help of Allah. Du’a, Du’a, Du’a. There’s no time like the present to begin to make these changes for the better. As brother Abu Muhammad Al Maghribi says:, “Death is promised, tomorrow is not.”

  1. As salaamu alaikum, thank you for commenting on my post, (totally new to this whole thing, and I wasn’t sure anyone would read it, lol).

    Your post reminds of two things, my mother always says that anything you do for 40 days will thereafter become a habit; and The Power of Habit, by Charles Duhigg seems like a book you might like, (can’t be certain, haven’t read it myself, but he sounded pretty interesting in an interview, lol).
