On the authority of Anas, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say:
Allah the Almighty has said: “O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as its.”
To receive forgiveness from God there are three requirements:
Recognizing the offense itself and its admission before God.
Making a commitment not to repeat the offense.
Asking for forgiveness from God.
If the offense was committed against another human being, or against society, a fourth condition is added:
Recognizing the offense before those against whom offense was committed and before God.
Committing oneself not to repeat the offense.
Doing whatever needs to be done to rectify the offense (within reason) and asking pardon of the offended party.
Asking God for forgiveness.
There are no particular words to say for asking forgiveness. However, Muslims are taught many phrases and words to keep repeating daily asking God’s forgiveness. For example:
Astaghfiru-Allah, “I ask forgiveness from Allah”
Subhanaka-Allah humma wa bi hamdika wa ash-hadu al la Ilaha illa Anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, “Glory be to You, Allah, and with You Praise (thanks) and I bear witness that there is no deity but You, I ask Your forgiveness and I return to You (in obedience)”.

clue number one was when you knocked on my door
clue number two was the look that you wore
n' that's when i knew it was a pretty good sign
that something was wrong up on cloud number nine
well it's a long way up and we won't come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right
and the moon is out and the stars are bright
and whatever comes s'gonna be alright
cause tonight you will be mine - up on cloud number nine
and there ain't no place that i'd rather be
and we can't go back but you're here with me
yeah, the weather is really fine - up on cloud number nine
now he hurt you and you hurt me
and that wasn't the way it was supposed to be
so baby tonight let's leave the world behind
and spend some time up on cloud number nine
well it's a long way up and we won't come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right
well we won't come down tonight
ya we won't come down tonight
no we won't come down tonight
we can watch the world go by - up on cloud number nine

Ask a mother who lost her son.Ask a wife who lost her husband.Ask a child who lost his father.Ask a sister who lost her brother.Ask a youth who lost his friend.They don't have a reason to love the country they belong to.
As India celebrates its 65 years of independence and The Prime Minister unfolds the flag with a promise that his government intents on fighting corruption.He says our country has achieved much, traveled rapidly on the path of development and achieved success in many areas. However, I am also well aware that a lot remains to be done. We have to banish poverty and illiteracy from our country. We have to provide the common man with access to improved health services. We have to provide employment opportunities to each one of our youth.And yet he forgets what is to be done for Kashmir which doesn't cry because of poverty, illiteracy.It's pain is much greater than all of these.
Kashmir cries for peace,its recognition all over the world as a part of the country and not be treated as terrorist or being a cause of terrorism worldwide,We all agree that there are human rights violations in Kashmir?I would like to ask our rulers that take so much responsibility in ruling us-Are not you and your political colleagues yet satisfied with a thousands of people killed?
Kashmir issue: we have lost nearly 100 thousand lives, hundreds of our sisters & mothers have been molested, thousands exiled and thousands are missing. What is the solution?When they fail to provide us with a solution the youth have a solution.
This is the reason today every youth is on street demanding AZADI.We always have been betrayed by the Government of India which failed to fulfill it's promises.We protest as a strategy by which we assert the demand of the right of self-determination.
We aren't killing the innocent souls.We aren't responsible of any uncertainty in INDIA or anywhere in the WORLD-then why are we always THE SUSPECTS.Kashmiri youth living in a so called democratic country India- why is he deployed of his rights?Even the simple rights he used to enjoy have been snatched away-Gag On SMS Services,Crackdown On E-Protestors etc.He has to suffer everyday.He has been suppressed always and will continue to if our leaders continue not paying heeds to their sufferings.
As a kid I use to be proud of my country,used to watch the Independence celebration with great enthusiasm but now I just don't care and like me every youth of Kashmir doesn't care and celebrate the day as THE BLACK DAY.We don't feel to be part of the country that doesn't consider us to be its part though it keeps on declaring us to be its integral part.
We have been traumatized and thus we don't want to be a part of India or Pakistan - we just want freedom-We want our own identity as was promised to us-we want KASHMIR to live and progress.We dont want to be suppressed or ruled over.We want PEACE.
We demand a new KASHMIR -A Better One
Why is it so hard to forget the person who hurt us most, escpecially when its the one whom we loved the most?
“Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting them back together.”
Knowing how to let go of someone you love is tough, but you’re not alone if you’re holding on to the past! It’s hard to let go.Because the more we care, the greater our expectations, and the greater the disappointment if those expectations aren't met. How can we ever forget the ones we've loved the most? They became part of us, so forgetting them would be denying a part of who we are.Sometimes it’s worse (in the long run) to try to get back together. Sometimes you need to keep forging ahead, and learn to survive heartbreak.
How to Let Go of Someone You Love
Remember both the good and the bad parts of the relationship
When you’ve lost someone you love, it’s easy to focus on the great parts of your relationship and life together. But, there was a reason you broke up — maybe even several reasons! Don’t ignore the “bad” parts of the relationship and idealize the best parts…instead, keep reminding yourself that you’re letting go of the past because holding on to it isn’t good for you.
Accept that your loss may always hurt or confuse you
Some things, we never ever get over — but we can still live full, rewarding lives and achieve our goals! Part of letting go of someone you love is accepthing that you may never have all the answers.
Your losses, heartbreaks, setbacks, and disappointments have made you a different person — a better, more unique, more compassionate person! Instead of mourning what was or what could have been, start something new in your life. Think about what goals you should set for your life. Volunteer, take a solo vacation, join a new gym,join a support group, check out a new social club, quit your job, and set new life goals. Rebuild your life — set new life goals.
Accept your lack of control over other people
No matter how “good”, smart, helpful, giving, or attractive you are, you can’t control other people. If they leave you, they have their reasons…and sometimes those reasons have nothing to do with you. The sooner you accept your lack of control, the easier it’ll be to let go of someone you love.
Remember that letting go of love doesn’t happen overnight
Letting go of the past isn’t something you do once – and poof! You’re free, healed, and happy! Rather, letting go is a journey peppered with steps forward and steps backward, good days and bad days. I grew up with time and keep on learning new things as I proceed in my life.I learned how to love, let go, and open my heart to love again. And I’ve survived those heart-wrenching, gut-twisting breakups that slam you to the ground and rip you to pieces. Letting go is a process that takes time.Keeping hope alive is what one needs so BEST OF LUCK :)

Love is mostly tender and quiet.Love is a light that allows people to see things that are not seen by others.Romantic love is a deep emotional, sexual and spiritual recognition and regard for the value of another person and relationship.
Most people never learn how to sustain a loving relationship. The reason is simple. Nobody showed them. The mere fact that a man and woman feel love toward each other does not guarantee they will be able to create a joyful and rewarding life. Love does not automatically teach a person communication skills. Love does not teach a person how to resolve a conflict. Love does not teach people how to weave their love into the rest of their life.
For most people who fall in love, a time will come when they sense the beginning of problems. They know that romantic love can produce great joy and happiness. But with time, they begin to feel more alone. They experience self-doubt and they feel the consequence of their unmet needs. They begin to see the other person more like they truly are and not what they needed them to be. They usually begin to find faults in others and they may become jealous, angry, bitter, sarcastic or cynical. Many will separate or remain together in misery. They will often have children and try to raise a family in an effort to revive the relationship or to feel better. Many will have an affair. When they separate or divorce, some will get involved in another relationship too quickly. They try to find some way to ease the pain. They idealize this new person in their life and the cycle starts over. They say to themselves, "I'll never be hurt like that again.
The exact origin of the desire to love is difficult to comprehend, but can be appreciated in many ways.
When a man and woman encounter each other in midst of love they seek intimate contact. In a general sense, love is a response to something we intimately value. Romantic love is the experience of joy in the presence of a loved one, joy in being close to a loved one, and joy in our interaction with a loved one.
Someone we love enters the room. Our eyes and heart light up. We look at this person. We feel a growing feeling of joy within us. We reach out and touch their hand. We feel happy and fulfilled.
I believe we all have a profound need to find things in the world we care about and feel inspired by.
Life is worthwhile - at any age - when we find something worth pursuing.
From the moment of birth we begin looking for lights that will brighten our journey, provide us with purpose and meaning, and make our struggle worthwhile.
It is here that we can begin to understand another important expression of romantic love.
Romantic love is a powerful way to express our capacity to love and to be loved. It is a way to focus our energy, our curiosity, and our desire for adventure. Romantic love is a source of pleasure and inspiration and is worth pursuing. Romantic love is a blessing of life. Romantic love confirms our lovable and capable nature.
When we encounter a person who thinks as we do, and notices what we do, and values what we do, we experience a strong feeling of contact with that person.
In loving you, I see in you a part of me that is also you.. I also see in you something that is really me. And there is you, a person of many qualities-- a person who is a mystery-- a person I am drawn to.
All life - by it's very nature - entails a possibility of defeat. Because of this, we find pleasure and reassurance in the expression of life. Sharing our life and participating in life is reassuring that life is possible. Romantic love is an intense sharing and reassurance that life is possible
Romantic love is a deep emotional, sexual and spiritual recognition and regard for the value of another person and relationship.Romantic love is based on shared sight and is shaped by happiness. Immature love is based on shared blindness, and is merely a fortress against pain.
Romantic love is a sanctuary, and a source of nourishment and energy. Sometimes romantic love is the only point of certainty, and the only thing that is solid and real in the midst of chaos and ambiguity.
Fascination, attraction, or passion may be born "at first sight". But love requires curiosity, patience, acceptance and seeing people for who they truly are. This usually takes time.
The light of love,Shines ever bright.Even through the darkest night.
When all else fails, It finds a way to survive Day by day.
Gentle natured In tough times,Love grows tougher As it shines.
And in the end,Love won't bend.
Thus, true love Is sure to win.
