So close … yet so distant – JustSomeThoughts

Sometimes it’s hard to know

Whether the journey should continue or come to a halt

Made it through thus far

And now I’m feeling like it may go down the drain

If only you knew how much I want to build a dynasty with you

A dynasty that will lead to the heavens

Used to be known as the possessor of the softest eyes and heart

But those very eyes and soul went through a lot of pain

We follow the guided way and what our heart inclines towards

Given that it hasn’t been corrupted

But imagine that heart is in a hundred and thousand pieces

Which piece do you follow?

The scars are hard to remove

I know God will heal

I just wait for the time this pain will go away

So close to you …. yet so distant

If only you knew how much I want to build a dynasty with you

A dynasty that will lead to the heavens

If only you knew how much I would protect you

Your heart, your body, your mind and soul

If only you knew how I would protect you, using my body as a shield

It kills to know ……

But I know it will be okay

Even though it’s hard to continue

I know it will be okay

Trust in God

If a chance was given

I would build a dynasty with you that will be hard to crumble with deen as the foundation

I know it will be okay

I was about to leave when I saw the situation

Leave and not turn back

Leave and never look back

But I stayed

Should I have gone ?

But I’m still here now

I’ll be waiting

Patiently

It will be okay

So close …. yet so distant

It would be wonderful to take this journey together

Leave a lasting imprint on the world that will benefit the heavens

Felt like crumbling …. shattered

Until a time comes

I will tell myself

It will be okay

Is this a prologue or an epilogue ?

Sometimes it’s hard to know

Whether the journey should continue or come to a halt

Made it through thus far

And now I’m feeling like it may go down the drain

If only you knew how much I want to build a dynasty with you

A dynasty that will lead to the heavens

Picture this: Foreheads touching …. breath visible in the cold air yet our presence keeps each warm

Picture this: Smiling at each other then gazing towards the sunrise … no words spoken … up in the sky

Picture this: So close … yet so distant

Ramadan Reminder #1

Assalamualaikum Everyone, I hope your Ramadan is going well so far, cant believe its already the last 10!

Here is a great reminder I came across that might be beneficial iA:

Assalaamu alaykum,
Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, then he will receive one good deed as ten good deeds like it. I do not say that Alif Lam Mim is one letter, but rather Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter, and Mim is a letter.”Source: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2910
SubhanAllah what a reward indeed! And for those who struggle to recite the Quran, the reward becomes doubled! This is because Allah, (swt) does not judge on the quality of the recitation rather Allah, the Most Beneficent, looks at the level of effort of the believer and rewards them accordingly. So, if a person is slow, stutters but is making his utmost effort to read the Quran correctly, Allah will surely reward him with greater. We must imagine the month of Ramadan as a jackpot for us Muslims as Allah promises that the reward for doing good in this month is utmost, so much so that it gives the believer a completely clean slate, erases all his sins/mistakes and gives him an opportunity to start over. So why do we not try? Why would we not want to grab this opportunity with both hands and build our relationship with His Supreme words?

Big questions for some of us to ask ourselves indeed.”

A Ramadan reminder…

Someone wrote this really nice reminder/message that might be beneficial for us all, so here it is:

Assalaamu alaykum and Ramadan Mubarak
The month has finally arrived and for many of us, it has come as a relief. It’s a great time for us to reset ourselves especially if we have not been in the best of habits or have made a number of blunders and mistakes, in the past year.
We’re human so we’re all bound to make mistakes and if you imagine over the course of the year, all that we have accumulated in terms of the bad, we can get rid of. And with that, our good deeds we have done over the year, remains, in shaa Allah. How amazing is that?! Ramadan comes once a year and is a golden opportunity to seek forgiveness and the blessings of Allah (swt).
