My faith is weak, what do I do?

Someone asked, my faith is weak, what do I do?

Search your heart for the love of Allah. If you find it, then nurture it so that it grows to fill your heart. Remove the dust that had been building up on it for the years that you spent forgetting Him and His love.You do that by giving time to your greatest love of all, the love of your Creator, the One who gave you everything you were able to smile for.You remember when you smiled at the sight of a newly born child or a cute animal? Allah created that. When you rested in the arms of your lover? Allah gave you that. When you cried of joy at a success that you made in this life? Allah gave you all that. So give Him some of your time daily. How much time? That depends on your situation at the moment. Start with an hour every day. Say that every day at this time I am going to give you an hour of my day my Lord. Use that hour to make ablution, recite, learn, and memorize Quran. Use some of that hour to pray to him and remember Him. If you cannot give Allah an hour, give Him half an hour, just give Him sometime every day, and be firm and consistent on this. After all, He gave you the 24 hours. Also, loan your Lord some money from His money that He has entrusted you with. Give the poor. Go out of your way to help someone, cook for a hungry family, or help others learn Islam.All these actions will increase the love you have in your heart for your Creator. Make a log book for your Iman. Record in it what you plan to do and what you have done.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
