The Journey [2]

A series of posts inspired by a line in a nasheed that says;

والله مافي هذه الدنيا ألذ من اشتياق العبد للرحمن

It is about a journey that I went through and would like to share it with you all.

When you're feeling down at the end of the night, when the world seems to be spinning so fast, you are left to get all these depressing thoughts.. Despair is engulfing your heart and you could barely breathe above your silent cries.. What do you do?

الاية 28 من سورة الرعد

الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ

My heart felt heavy.. It felt weak and troubled because of all the negative thoughts I was having.. I felt like I needed a blanket, I needed to wrap my heart with something so it would be whole and intact again, to place it back properly instead of having it shaking and turning.. The answer, my readers, was perfectly clear.

أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ

Why do we lose ourselves to our darkest of times? Why do we feel so troubled when we have the solution right in front of us? Yes, ithkir Allah, pray to him, listen to Quran and just lay back and relax الله هو الحفيظ الرحيم You will be amazed at how easily your mood has been lift up, you no longer feel lost, you no longer surrender to your weakness, you will rise above it all with the help of Allah. You have trouble sleeping? Read a few verses of the Quran, the mu3awithat, put your earphones on and listen to the recitation of your favourite Quran reciter, smile and be content for we have a solution to all of our ordeals yet we act like we don't. When you turn to Him in time of your need, there's something joyous in that. There is the deep knowledge that He is going to help you. He will be there for you. He will answer to your prayers. Don't give up hope like some did.

إن الله كريم مجيب الدعاء

I think reaching to this level of realisation makes life easier for you. You know that whatever you'll go through, there's a way out. There is a way to bring joy to your heart, a way to feel peaceful and whole again. Words can't express this amazing feeling, keep working on your faith, on your connection to Him and you will definitely reach there inshAllah.
