Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

Lets stop waiting for tomorrow .. because tomorrow may never come.
Never stop fighting. Fight yourself, keep on fighting .. don't be static. We need to keep wanting to make ourselves better.
We are human. We aren't perfect. But we need to strive to achieve the closest state to perfection.
Fight! Fight! Fight!
I was at a state of despair, we are such sinners. NO ONE knows who will go to Heaven. Allah will question even the Prophets on the Day of Judgement so what chance do we have?
But crying in self-pity and fear isn't doing anything.
BISMILLAHIR RAHMANIR RAHEEM.
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious and the most Merciful.
We start everything with that. Yes, we need to fear Allah. But He is ever Merciful. So now is the perfect time to ask for forgiveness, repent, try to reform ourselves according to the Quran and inshAllah what we fear (Hell) won't come true :)
The fear is good. We need to use it to motivate ourselves for improvement. A scared sinner in repentance is better than the arrogant do-gooder who thinks entry to Heaven is guaranteed and does not seek to make himself a better Muslim and person.
Edit: I read somewhere that Muhammad (SAW) said that whoever reads Ayat ul-Qursi after each obligatory prayer, death is the only thing stopping him from entering Paradise. This one is relatively simple, so lets try and get this into our systems :D
