I enjoy shopping, a lot. But whenever i got there i get really overwhelmed by the amount of music that is played. I love listening to nasheeds, but sometimes i forget my ipod whilst i drive, and the only thing on the radio well is music. Whenever i see/read sayings like ‘Music is my life’ or ‘Music saves my soul’ i literally cringe inside, and at the same time smile.
I feel so blessed to be able to have the appreciation and love for the holy book of Allah, the Quran. Wallahi as much as music can be a fitnah and tempting to listen to, nothing can be perfect enough for any of your moods like the quran is. Music got nothing on it man.
When you’re happy, you can listen to the quran/read the quran and find your happiness satisfied.
“Never will i allow to be lost the work of any of you, male or female.” (3:195)
When you feel like finding a cave and leaving humanity, there will always be a verse that will bring you back to your senses and give you hope.
“When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls to Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way.” (2:186)
When you feel like the whole world has left you, and the whole world is asleep to your problems, you’ll read a verses like
“…Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge … (6:59)”
