"Holding Good Expectations of Allah SWT"

 "O Allah,To you is due all praises and thanks; it is only Your domain to do favors with grace. O Allah, I beseech You to enable me to perform the deeds loved by You, develop sincere reliance on You, and hold good expectations from You." 
(The Du'a of Ka'b ibn Ujrah (RA) and Abu Hurayrah (RA) ~ Kanz al- 'Ummal #3653, 3654)



~It is important to hold good expectations of Allah SWT, for Allah SWT deals with a person based on his expectations. When a servant of Allah SWT sincerely puts his Trust and Hopes in Him (SWT), Allah SWT does not disappoint him.~ 
(The Accepted Whispers)

"Trials and Trust... The Parallel Coordinates"


The things that Allah SWT has given us in this life, are both a trial and a trust (not one or the other, BUT both), We must Maneuver through what is given to us with patience, precision, and wakefulness. Our trials and trust is not a fly by night circumstance or a quick fix and they are never easy, Even if you are Elated and Overjoyed with it. Therefore; we must Consult with Al-A'la (The Most High) often, but especially on matters that becomes too baffling, and we must consult with Him seeking not only to solve the discontented parts of the trial and trust but seeking understanding, righteousness, and perseverance at these delicate moments.

Every trial and trust will be different and this is very important for us to understand because even if you feel it's de'ja' vu, there are parts within our trust and trials that are extraordinary.

We must understand that the trial must be passed in order to see the complete picture of that trust... and the trust must be handled with integrity as to not fail the trial. Most trust can and will arrange beautifully, even if you can not see the beauty in its scattered pieces at the moment and even if there is some sense of loss...For Our Lord Knows Best.

Every soul yearns for a sense of purpose, light, and truth. Having these illuminates the soul; bringing contentment, wakefulness, and a profound sense of wealth. It is important for each of us to have these faculties within our soul so that the spirit and the soul will remain alive and well.

There are quite a few things we can do to gain or remain spiritually connected with our Lord, our soul, and others. 
...Here are 22 ways to awaken your soul and spirit.

*Belief in God (From Him you came, It is to Him you will return.)
*Prayer (Is your personal time with your Lord, a time of repentance and/or gratitude.)
*Reading of your Holy Qur'an (Gives guidance and instruction to the straight Path.)
*Religious Practices (Is implementation towards a straight path)
*Charity (Cleanses the soul, builds character, and reward in this life and the next) 
*Fasting (Teaches sacrifice, promotes selflessness, tranquility and it rewards in this life and the next) 
*Connect With Nature (Reminding that you are the best of His creations, Yet you are still small in comparison.) 
*Traveling to explore other lands or ancient artifacts (Reminds the vastness of His earth, and promotes curiosity and removes the state of oblivion.) 
*Visiting the sick (form compassion, empathy, and altruistic thinking)  
*Helping the less fortunate (Removes selfish behaviors and promotes gratitude)
*Practice altruism (builds trust, character, cultivates love between hearts)
*Repair broken relationship (Removes resentment, indifference, disregard  etc... ) 
*Form unconditional relationships (It cultivates unselfish love, relieves jealousy and envy)
*Forgiving yourself (It free's the soul and spirit, relieve burdens)
*Forgiving others (It free's aggression, removes anger and hostility) 
*Putting the best construction on a thing or an action (Promotes healthy thinking, removes suspicion)

*Stir clear of suspicion (Suspicion can sometimes be a lie and very damaging.)
*Replace bad habit with good habits (Good habits leads to cleanliness of mind, the body, and spirit.) 
*Keep away from bad behaviors (Bad behaviors deaden the soul and add darkness to the spirit.) 
*Keep away from spirit crushers (These will weaken the spirit and causes the soul to digress.) 
*Visit the Cemetery (It's a reminder of your own mortality and the ones who have gone before you.)

Customized Wellness Plan


 This is a prescription for Optimal Health. It requires but is not limited to Nutritional, Spiritual, and Physical Wellness, Vitamin Supplements, Herbals, Therapies, and Topical Treatments.


*Please Be Advised, It may take some time for healing to be began. Therefore, please be patient with yourself and the process of healing.

When attempting to prevent the entrance of disease and to assist the body in healing itself naturally, always remember that each individual’s body and chemistry is different; therefore, what may work for one person, may not work for another so it is not uncommon that your wellness plan may need adjusting periodically.




Due to your specific illness, an organic lifestyle and purified, distilled, or spring water is best.

May Allah S.W.T. assist you in your healing process and may you have a great quality of life, Ameen. “With God All Things are Possible.”
Sincerely,
Kalandra Cooke-Goff, PhD

 Nadine of Nadoona Fitness is an awesome fitness instructor and such a warm sweet young lady.
Dr. Alo (Cardiologist) Shared wonderful medical information that was comprehensive as well as being able to share information with me on Congestive Heart Failure that will really help with my wellness consultations (since I know quite a few with this heart condition). 
The Abdullah Brothers (NFL) really are kind and down to earth Brothers. I really enjoyed meeting them, Since my sons and Husband couldn't be there to workout in their training seminar, They sent written peace and blessing to them all.

My lecture on "Complete Wellness in Light of Qur'an and Sunnah" was sharing info. about all of the beauty that Our Lord has bestowed on us for healing of the Mind, Body, and Spirit and how all of these methods lie within Qur'an and the way of Life The Rasul'Allah (S.A.W.), His Companions, as well as many other Prophets (P.B.U.T.).

"Beware of Jealousy"

"Take care of your OWN soul"



No matter How many Trial's and Changes, May we always worship Our LORD to the "BEST" of our Ability; With what Knowledge and Wisdom "HE" has provided "us" with. Our LORD IS ONE! not two or three... Personally, I can not and will not Apologize for the gifts I have been given of being Muslim.

(1) Save the hatred, tyranny, and furtive ways for minds who would succumb... Better yet, develop your soul for greater desires than tyrannical acts. 
(2) Focus on developing a good character leading to a righteous soul and Beautiful Conduct. 
(3) Look forward to a day where we will all be standing before our Lord (One GOD) and will answer for our Acts individually not collectively.
(4) If you sincerely feel that you are walking righteously, you shouldn't apologize either because No apologies are necessary... but if you know you are not... take the steps to amend your soul, before that day comes where you will not be able nor will you have any helpers against what your Lord has in-store. 

*** Wait; my friends ,because I am waiting with you*** 
One day when we are standing before OUR LORD, He will tell us all the TRUTH of that which we did or did not.... TAKE CARE OF YOUR "OWN" SOULS FRIENDS, 
 Straight from my ♥ to yours...

"Soul-Mates"



When thinking of "Soul mates" we tend to think of them as a male and female whose souls and spirits are so inclined and in tuned to one another that they can't see anything else; well that can be partially true, but I have come to understand that there is so much more to soul mates than we realize.

What I believe

I believe that we can have a few soul mates male or female, but when it comes to a male/female intimate relationship there is only one ultimate soul mate. It's that special, significant person that when we meet them for the first time, we are sooo wow-ed! by them and when they're are no longer with us we feel an overwhelming sense of loneliness, loss, sadness, etc.. However; these feelings should not be confused with infatuation.

Friends that are soul mates

Friends who are soul mates which we sometimes call our "best friends" are those people who we can respect their differences, respect their decisions, and the trials of life that they must go through. Even if we dislike the bottom line. Our friends who are soul mates, we tend to understand deeply, sometimes without having to express things verbally.With these types of soul mates we will do what ever we can to help without placing ourselves and others in dangerous situation and those friends understand that and can respect that without persecutions or ill feelings. Most times in life you will only find one or two of these kinds of soul mates. You will truly love them as they will truly love you for the sake of God. These kinds of soul mate last an eternity.

Intimate Soul mates

Intimate soul mates are those people who touch our souls and spirits in ways that they have never been touched. Intimate soul mates do not have to be lovers, however; sometimes the feelings are so strong and intense that a love relationship can easily follow. Your intimate soul mate is one who possess most or all things that you admire, respect, or need in a person. What set the intimate soul mate apart from the rest is "Your Individual Ultimate Need." If your ultimate need is to be shown respect, because this is something you were never really shown, then when you meet that person who has all the general requirements that you desire mixed with "Your Individual Ultimate Need" that's what draws in that overwhelming love and desire for that person. An Intimate soul mate usually possesses what you need naturally, They don't have to try, nor do you have to teach them to be what you need.

I'm Your Soul mate but Your Not Mine

In most case someone will be a soul mate, but the other person won't feel completely the same. I believe that you rarely find two people who feel the same strength when it comes to an Intimate soul mate relationship. It can be very disheartening and very sad. We can all co-exist in Marriages and relationships without love, or some of our needs being met and without our Ultimate soul mate, we can be well content and live long productive lives with out having or meeting our Intimate soul mates, but If we ever were to meet our soul mate or If we knew our soul mate, we would immediately know the difference in the Marriage/Relationship that is of convienance or contentment; as opposed to the Marriage/ Relationship that is with the Ultimate soul mate.

Is My Soul mate Good or Bad for Me

Just because someone is your soul mate, that doesn't make them good for your soul or you good for theirs. In many cases soul mate can be hazardous. Especially if you place them or they place you above all else. Some soul mates are willing to do anything for the person they love even if that means hurting others. Some soul mates are already married to others when they meet which can cause affairs; which in turn, destroy or cause chaos in families; some soul mates relationships have such strong pull that they can loose a sense of focus or self identity. None of these things are healthy for the soul or spirit...I believe that we can not choose who we love, nor does God place in no man two hearts, that's just how things are but, we can use wisdom and our minds to choose what is right and most beneficial for all who are involved and not letting our emotions be our complete guide. Having a soul mate can feel so wonderful, exhilarating, and euphoric but it can also be scary, disheartening, and sad.
