We all experience that we are frequently bombarded with different kinds of thoughts which run through our minds all the time. It's estimated that around fifty thousand thoughts are generated in he human mind, no one knows the actual reality of it. And how it changes our lives as it could be positive or negative. Small idea or thought bring the great transformation in us, which all depends how we think. Science still hasnt found an answer or evidence about thoughts and sleeps. However, memories, reading, environment, experiences, our five senses, people, situations, ... could be considered as factors that help in generate thoughts.

Man can control his body but is unable to control mind. Our mind is like a jungle of thoughts which is driven by our desires and thinking. As what we think and desire ultimately occupies our mind, positive thoughts brings optimistim in our lives helps us change in our wrong attitude and behaviour while negative thoughts make us low and depressed.

Thoughts are part of a human being, and it is impossible to avoid them, so Almighty Allah has forgiven us of this problem because it is something beyond human power. Bad thoughts are actually the result of our bad character and disobeying Allah and heedless to His commands. Moreover, we are continually attacked by the whispers of Satan who is always being with us.

"Verily, Satan flows through the human being like the flowing of blood.”

The following is mentioned in the Quran about that: “If Satan tempts you, seek refuge in Allah” (Qur'an 41:36.) It is also recommended to take refuge in Allah with the verses in surah al-Muminoon : "O Lord! I seek refuge in you from the evil suggestions of the Satans. And I seek refuge in you, O my Lord, from their presence.” (Qur'an 23:97-98.)

If we do good things, then thoughts will be good. So to create good thoughts one has to renounce evil and embrace good. Allaah is very grateful to us that He does not hold us guilty for evil thoughts unless we commit evil but if good thoughts are only realized, even if is not practiced, those are written as good deeds by Allah.

The messenger of Allah pbuh said: "Allah has written down the good deeds and the bad ones." Then he explained it [by saying that] :" He who has intended a good deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as from ten good deeds to seven hundred times, or many times over. But if he has intended a bad deed and has not done it, Allah writes it down with Himself as a full good deed, but if he has intended it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Thoughts are very much related the way we live our life. So we must surround ourselves with good people. And constant and frequent remembrance of Allah help us to be focused with whatever we do. As conscious thinking about Allah will save us from negative or evil thoughts, rather we start thinking positively leading us to have a broader vision and give wider dimension to our lives. Whenever bad thoughts occur start seeking refuge in Allah.
