Dedicated to a Very Dear Friend, You Know Who You Are.
My dear sister! Know that you leave me distressed, that my heart weeps for you! Know that when you cry, I cry! Oh my sister! We may be far but know that I feel your hurt, your pain is mine! That your tears fall not just on your cheeks but on mine too!
Dear sister, take heart! Be strong! Remember that this too shall pass!
“Verily, with hardship, there is relief ” (Quran 94:6)
Remember also that people are placed in our path by Allah Ta`ala, Our Rab, He who is Ar-Rehman, Ar-Raheem to mold us, to bring us closer to Him. Look at them my sister but look beyond! They are only here to teach us a lesson from the Almighty. They are for our own tarrbiyyah. To show us the error in our ways.
Look within my dear sister, look within. For there-in you`ll find the solution.
My dear sister, Know that the path is straight, yet we are lost! And He in His infinite mercy puts these obstacles in our life to bring us back to the path. To remind us that there is but only ONE objective in life and ALL else is just a means to an end. Know my dear sister that all this, is JUST to bring us back to Him. “So flee to Allah…” (Surah Thariyat).
For He is Allah s.w.t, He takes us back, though we may repeatedly sin. Say: “O Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Az-Zumar, 53)
Know my sister that words are after all just that, words. And that we are Naqis. We are needy of our Rab. So my sister return to Him! For only in Him, there is peace. He is As-Salam. (Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest.) (Qur’an 13: 28).
My sister, KNOW that His mercy engulfs you. That HIS love is the ONLY love. That there is ONLY HIM and all else is a delusion. He, ALONE is the truth! “…And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion?” (Qur’an, 57:20)
Finally my beloved sister, Know that every being, every particle, every pint of blood, each strand of hair, every blade of grass, every hill, every mountain, each drop in the oceans, every single thing in the land and the skies Glorifies Him. Pay heed, my dear sister! Glorify Him! Be like them! Be in sync, in harmony with the universe. Be at peace.
