Allah – mankind – me

When Allah loves someone, He sets him free letting it come to Him when he pleases, letting him love Him back when he wills … Yet, when mankind loves someone, he’s looking on ways to bind him to himself, someway that it won’t go away even if it hurts him, he doesn’t care because he just wants to keep what he loves, with him …

We talk so much about love yet we know so little about it …

Sometimes its hard to say what’s happening is for good or bad, happiness or pain … Whether Allah is testing you, punishing you or simply blessing you but bringing a hardship in front of you …

I don’t know whether the heart turns numb from going through so many obstacles or simply faith becomes so firm that it brings patience to your heart? Faith, belief, hope … There is always a brand new day, a brand new start … Every moment that ends is a moment bringing you closer to Him …

I’m naïve, non-intellect & perhaps wrong too … But I still believe I’m Alhumdulillah blessed with great gifts …the gift of doing sabr…the gift of having faith even in toughest situations… The gift of not giving up… And the gift of knowing that everything, everyone will only accompany me till death at most, after that its just me & Him … Sometimes I let myself be carried away by duniya, but I guess as far as I have a reminder in my heart, I’m among the blessed ones who haven’t become deaf, dumb, or blind …

Why let tears fall for people when they don’t care? … There’s a limit to everything, even life … So if life is to end today, why not spend it bringing smiles to those who care?

O my heart, fear not thee
For love is more than what eyes can see
Be faithful, steady, & str0ng
InshAllah, n0thing will g0 wr0ng 🙂
