The story of the two wolves inside us

Two Wolves One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy,sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Prayer to obtain God’s mercy during hardship

Our lord bestow on us endurance and make our footsteps sure and give us help against those who reject faith. Protect us from the most wicked creatures whether visible to our eyes or not. O God, do not take us into account if we forget or fall into error.

O Lord, do not place such a burden as you did lay upon those before us. Our lord, do not impose on us something that we do not have the strength to bear, grant us forgiveness and have mercy upon us.

You are our Protector. Help us against those that reject the truth. Our lord, let not our hearts deviate from the truth after You have guided us, and bestow upon us mercy from your grace. Verily You are the giver of bounty without measure.

So, give us your compassion in this instance against evil. Our lord, forgive us our sins and the lack of moderations in our doings, and make firm our steps, and protect us with your Might from those who deny the truth.

O lord, whomsoever you shall commit to the fire, truly you have brought him/her to disgrace, and never will wrongdoers find any helpers.

Our lord: we have heard a voice calling us unto faith: believe in the lord and we have believed.

Our lord forgive us our sins and efface our bad deeds and take our souls in the company of the righteous.

Our lord, grant us that which you have promised to us by your messengers and save us from shame on the last judgement day.

Verily you never fail in your promises Our lord, we have sinned against ourselves and if you do not forgive us and grant us your mercy, we shall certainly be lost.

Do not place us among those who are guilty of evil doings and do not give them an opportunity to humiliate us.

Our lord, lay upon us the truth between us and those wicked people and wicked minds for you are the best to show open the truth.

Our lord, pour out patience and constancy and make us die as those who have shown constancy towards you O lord do not make us a trial for the evildoers and save us from those you have denied the truth.

O lord, we turn to you in repentance so forgive us and have mercy upon us.

To Allah: Victory lies in your Mighty Hands

I refuse to be discouraged,to be sad, or to cry;

I refuse to be downhearted, and here’s the

reason why:

I have a God who’s mighty, Who is Sovereign

and Supreme;

I have a God who loves me, and by His Divine

grace I’m on His team.

He is all-wise and powerful. Allah is His name;

Though everything is changeable, My God

remains the same.

My God knows all that’s happening; from

Beginning to the end;

His presence is my comfort; He is my dearest

Friend, may I say so.

When sickness comes to weaken me, To bring

my head down low,

I call upon my mighty God;

When circumstances threaten to rob me of my peace;

He draws me close Him, Where all my strivings


When my heart melts within me, and weakness

takes control;

He gathers me into His arms, He soothes my heart and soul.

I refuse to be defeated coz I know Him Ar


He has promised to be with me, and He never

leaves us bare handed

My prayers have reached Him

I give God thanks for standing by my side

The battle’s His, the victory mine; He’ll help me

win the race.

Alhamdulillah, I can do all things through Allah

who strengthens me!
