The Journey [4]

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

والله مافي هذه الدنيا الذ من اشتياق العبد للرحمن

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

My previous post was about the purpose in life, so what is yours?

الآية 56 من سورة الذاريات:

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

(51:56) I created the jinn and humans for nothing else but that they may serve Me;

We usually keep that in the back of our minds when we are so wrapped up in earthly matters. People commit suicide, steal, kill others all simply because they were faced with circumstances they couldn't deal with, they saw no point of living afterwards.

It is really sad. I know a few who say that and it hurts me deep inside. Allah is great. Your life isn't yours, He gifted it to you and only He can claim it, you do not have the right to take your life by your own hands just because something went wrong. Have a strong Iman, a faithful heart that rightly knows things happen for a reason, that these are merely tests so He can see who will thank Him for the good things and pray for His mercy in the bad times.

I have went through something so horrible.. I thought I lost who I was but it only took me a moment of deep thinking to realise I need a new definition to who I am, and here it is; I'm a Muslim girl who would go through many patches in life, I would not give up, I would not lose myself just because something went wrong, Allah is merciful, Allah is kareem and he loves his 3ibad.

I became too attached to my new thoughts, my perspective of things, my beliefs and el7amdellah I feel so secure and safe when I utter the name Allah :)

الحمدلله الذي هدانا وجعلنا مسلمين

Love this, it's true without remembering god we'd all be so lost & living would make no sense.

Very Lovely written Maryam! ♡

When you move to the UK you might face people that will question your beliefs. If you ever felt like you're getting second thoughts about what you believe in (which I doubt will happen) then come back and read every post you have written and maybe show them what you wrote, too.

Best of luck Maryam and keep sharing!
