maths in everyday life

let's learn some maths today. wihiii. (thanks a lot to one of SA members for this concept).
when you are neutral (neither sinful nor virtuous), you are in the zero state (0). when you made a sin, you are in a negative 1 (-1) state. after you seek for His forgiveness (if He forgives you, He is the forgiver indeed), you are in the 0 state again.

أَلَمْ يَعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ يَقْبَلُ التَّوْبَةَ عَنْ عِبَادِهِ وَيَأْخُذُ الصَّدَقَـتِ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ
Know they not that Allah accepts repentance from His servants and accepts the Sadaqat, and that Allah alone is the One Who forgives and accepts repentance, Most Merciful (9:104)

you will always be in the 0 state if you keep doing the same mistake and ask for His forgiveness again and again. so when you'll improve yourself to be in the positive 1 (+1) state (which means you get reward from Him) ?? it is when you fight your nafs (-ve desire) so that you wont do the same mistake again. upon realizing your mistake, you should leave it behind and not repeating it. but as we know, humans are weak and often being influenced by syaitans to do the mistake again. this is actually the time when we should get the extra credits from Him. when we fight our nafs and the syaitans.

وَمَآ أُبَرِّىءُ نَفْسِى إِنَّ النَّفْسَ لأَمَّارَةٌ بِالسُّوءِ إِلاَّ مَا رَحِمَ رَبِّى إِنَّ رَبِّى غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
"And I free not myself (from the blame). Verily, the self is inclined to evil, except when my Lord bestows His mercy (upon whom He wills). Verily, my Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.'' (12:53)

He knows

When you feel all alone in this world
And there's nobody to count your tears
Just remember, no matter where you are
Allah knows

When you carrying a monster load
And you wonder how far you can go
With every step on that road that you take
Allah knows

No matter what, inside or out
There's one thing of which there's no doubt
Allah knows
Allah knows
And whatever lies in the heavens and the earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you find that special someone
Feel your whole life has barely begun
You can walk on the moon, shout it to everyone
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you gaze with love in your eyes
Catch a glimpse of paradise
And you see your child take the first breath of life
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you lose someone close to your heart
See your whole world fall apart
And you try to go on but it seems so hard
Allah knows
Allah knows

You see we all have a path to choose
Through the valleys and hills we go
With the ups and the downs, never fret never frown
Allah knows
Allah knows

Every grain of sand,
In every desert land, He knows.
Every shade of palm,
Every closed hand, He knows.
Every sparkling tear,
On every eyelash, He knows.
Every thought I have,
And every word I share, He knows.
Allah knows
(Allah knows by Zain Bhika and Dawud Wharnsby ali)

He knows everything. He knows my efforts in building a good rapport with those around me, in improving my communication with other human beings (hablu minannas), in fighting my bad habits. He knows my efforts of catching up with the increasing demand of this medicine course.
He knows how vulnerable my iman is, how easily affected i am. He knows i still forget Him sometimes even how deep my love towards Him. He knows how disappointed i am for letting my emotion overrules my rationality, how disappointed i am for not remembering Him all the time, how diappointed i am with my ramadhan. He knows how thankful i am for His blessings during the recent eid fitr and all other things in my life. He knows that i sometimes forget to use what He gives to me for His sake. (as we have our responsibility for every pleasure that we have). He knows everything as He is the all-knowing. and one thing i ask from Him. please dont let me go astray in whatever i do. please dont take Your hidayah from me. please. i beg You.
