It dates back to year 2009. I was in my last year of engineering from Usman Institute of Technology but as a hobby I did a course from APTECH in graphic designing. I was really excited at that time and dropped my CV to many job seeking websites. I literary dreamed of doing some freelance work like designing a logo or something.
Nature/GOD/Higher self usually aligns your stars as per our requirement. I got an email in which Tohfay.com required a logo for their website. I made 10 logos and sent an email. Next day I was in Tohfay.com office with my logo on their desk. Tohfay.com loved it… coincidence may be!!!
I joined full time in Tohfay.com as a graphic designer and made few banners for Tohfay.com. hmmm somewhere down the lane I realized that I am not loving it. Then my friend told a thing called SEO (a technique used to upgrade your ranking on Google.com). I loved the concept and dreamed, visualized myself as an SEO expert.
Some days later my boss told me to do SEO for Tohfay.com…. wow coincidence maybe!!
Next came my passion for reading books. By birth I loved reading books (alhumdulilaah adopted this wonderful habit from by my beloved father). And as I was born in Saudi Arabia I had an influence from my mother in Islam. Islamic teachings and learning about it.
Then I dreamed of moving my way towards teaching of Islam. My cousin who is a doctor invited me to take grammar classes in Dr Israr Academy. I finished recently alhumdulilaah with new perspective over reading holy Quran…. Coincidence may be!!
Since birth I consider myself as a Pakistani. I feel pleasure in doing things that make Pakistan proud. Recently I attended a seminar arranged by Torque. I came to know about Torque from Sarah Mashhood (turning officer at Torque plus lively person, amazing friend and an inspiring human being maashaaAllah) and Adeel (also turning officer at Torque… loves Sufi books and makes you feel love Life.. amazing friend).
Torque is an organization which inspires youth to do something for Pakistan. I dreamed of being part of Torque and for now regularly attending their seminars. Kind of life changing for me actually and while learning I am enjoying at its fullest.
You people will say it was just a coincidence that Life folded for me in such a way but actually its not.
I don’t really consider all of this as a coincidence. I really feel that all this happened because I attracted all of this for myself (keeping in mind that ALLAH Subhan o Tala is the supreme power and this all happened because I prayed by heart for all of this).
I can summarize all of this in two laws….
Law of attraction
Thoughts becomes things… whatever we think happens to us… and its real… visualize your goal and you will get it… inshaaAllah… its my belief and it is working like a magic for me…
Law of Increase
Whatever you are truly grateful for and appreciate will increase in your Life
Imam al-Shafi said:
Praised be Allah, Who, whenever He is thanked for one of His blessings, provides another blessing which in turn obliges one to thank Him again!
In the end I would like to conclude with definition of Success which I read in the book Are You Ready to Succeed
Successful is the person who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained respect of children, who leaves the world better than they found it, who has never lacked appreciation, for the earth’s beauty, who never fail to look for the best in others or give the best of themselves.
