Become Spiritual - IslamicSome falsely imagine that when a person has purified himself or herself then Allah swt will grant such a person special abilities and spiritual hidden knowledge.
They may come as a result of meditation or extreme psychic exercises and they may even show themselves in a person as ‘side effects’ of self-purification. But in reality they are not the goal of self-purification and if they enthral a person, he or she actually stops his or her spiritual growth.
True spirituality is indicated by one thing only: how much realization (ma’rifah) of Allah a person has. To the degree that a person knows Allah, to that degree they are spiritual and enlightened.
Ways on improving your Self EsteemWays on improving your self esteem from despair, depression and anxiety
Despair and HopelessnessDespair conjures up feelings of isolation and hopelessness and is a topic that is often neglected within the Muslim community.
Allah swt tells us in the Quran:"And do not despair of Allāh’s Mercy ; indeed no one despairs of Allah’s Mercy except the unbelieving people."
Life itself is a gift from the Creator that we are obliged to care for.
People do survive this, and, with the Mercy of Allah, are able to grow and be better for their experiences by returning to the natural way of life as prescribed by Islam, and implemented by our beloved Prophet (s) and his Progeny (as).

Summary from Khalid Yaseen purpose of life series
Sadaqa Jariya - a continuing charityIt is important to know that once a person dies, they no longer
have the chance to do good or undo their sins through repentance. They now depend on others to pray for them and do good on their behalf.
There is however one option:
A person can do certain good deeds in this world that will continue toearn him or her spiritual reward (thawāb) even after he or she is dead.
These “Ongoing Rewards” are called in Arabic “Thawāb Jāriya”. Some examples of Thawāb Jāriya are:
1. Building a masjid, madrasah or Islamic library and even helping to build or establish part of it. As long as the building stands and
people worship in it or benefit from it, a person gets thawāb for it
even if he or she is dead.
2. Planting a tree. As long as the tree stands and people benefit from its shade or fruits, a person gets thawāb.
3. Writing or publishing a copy of the Qur’ān or any book of useful
knowledge. As long as even one page of this book exists and
people read it and benefit from it, a person gets thawāb.
4. Leaving behind a pious child. If a person raises his or her child to
be religious and teaches the child to recite Qur’ān, then as long as
the child lives and does good deeds, the parent gets a share of the
thawāb. And even when the child teaches others who teach
others, the parent still gets thawāb for that because of being the
original cause of that good deed.
5. Teaching others Islam. Every time a student practices something Islamic they learnt from the teacher, the teacher gets thawāb even if he or she is dead. And even when the student grows up and teaches others, the teacher still gets some of the thawāb.
6. Building a well or water supply for people. As long as people drink and use the water from that well or supply, the person who
helped build or pay for it continues to get thawāb.
