”Fate rarely calls upon the people at a time of their choosing. In times of trails and tribulations you have a decision to make, either you can get closer to Allah and that is your way to paradise, or you decide to live with your pain ,seek the pity of people and let the pain get worse and create your own destruction.”
If you have Allah you have everything.
Definition of true beauty.
From the Streets to Islam - My Story - Muslim Belal
Oh Allah. My heart is not at peace knowing that the distance between it and You is starting to grow. I go around thinking that it isn’t that dangerous. I will work with my Imaan soon I tell myself. I will begin to read more Quran soon I tell myself. I will start to pray the sunnah prayers soon I tell myself. I will do it all more soon I tell myself. I am pretty good at telling myself soon. But when is soon? Is it when my soul has dried out and lost its glow. Is it when I become too blind. Because the eyes may be blind but the hard part is if the heart becomes blind.
Ya Allah, Ya Raman, Ya Raheem - My soul will never find tranquility if it isn’t near You. Without You I am nothing. My desires may make me happy for a moment, but only Your love and closeness can make me happy forever. My Rabb, let me come closer to You. Because only then I will get to know the reality of true joy.
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that Jannah is worth the temporary struggle.
