It’s that…

Standard

It’s that realization that you have to keep going.
It’s that drowning feeling when you just want to let go.
It’s that heart beat that feels like stopping.
It’s the breath that catches and gets stuck.
It’s that moment when the world stops but you know it’s not the end
and you lift each aching limb and crawl forward
because it’s not the end and for a moment you wish it was.
It’s that memory that you know was meant to be but you wish somehow it would erase itself and set you free.
It’s that feeling.
It’s that unforgiving feeling.
It just can’t be explained.

10 Causes that Result

Ten Causes that Result in Allaah’s Love For His Slave and the Slave’s Love for his Lord

Author: Ibnul Qayyim al Jawziyyah, Source: Madarij as-Saalikeen (vol. 3, pp. 17-18 )
First, reciting the Qur’an while pondering over its meanings and what is meant
by it.

Second, getting closer to Allaah by performing voluntary deeds after completing obligatory deeds. This is as is stated in a Hadith Qudsi: “My slave continues getting closer to Me by performing voluntary deeds until I love him.”

Third, continual remembrance of Allaah under all circumstances, with one’s tongue, heart and actions. The extent of one’s love of Allaah is determined by this.

Fourth, giving precedence to what He loves over what you love when you are overtaken by your desires.

Fifth, the heart being avid of Allaah’s Names, and Attributes and the heart roaming in that garden of knowledge.

Sixth, observing Allaah’s kindness, goodness and bounties, both hidden and open.

Seventh, and this is the most wonderful, the heart being soft, subdued and meek before Allaah.

Eighth, being alone with Allaah during the time when the Lord descends during the last portion of the night while reading His Book and ending that by asking for forgiveness and repenting.

Ninth, sitting with the beloved and sincere, benefitting from the most fruitful of their speech. And not to speak unless speaking is more beneficial and you know that it will improve your state and be beneficial to others.

Tenth, remaining away from every cause that comes between the heart and Allaah.

LOST

Standard

Confused what route to take. I feel lost. Cry, tear, scream. What do I do? I turn towards the qiblah. Bend my legs. And ask for guidance from Allah subhanahu wa tala.

5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything).

6. Guide us to the Straight Way

My Sister

Standard

What is that quote? You never realize the worth of something till you loose it? Why do we always have to learn it the hard way?

Dear sister(biological one), having you in my life is such a blessing, even though now, our studies part us, and even if it takes around 24 hours to reach you, i think the only valuable friendship i have ever made in my life, would be with you. Alhamdulilah ❤ jazakiAllahu khairun.

For all you guys out there, cherish who’ve you got. As we get older, and this dunya parts us from our loved ones, it is so so hard, so do cherish them. 🙂

Anyways, my point= appreicate what you got today before you loose it tomorrow.
