Remember When It Was Only Him

A Bedouin was asked how he came to know his Lord.

He said: Droppings point to the existence of livestock,

And footprints point to that of passers by,

So constellations that fill the sky, and an earth filled with valleys,

And oceans filled with waves,

Does that not point to Al-Latīf, Al-Khabīr?

Peace be upon you, beautiful human being!

Driving in the rain, tears blurred my vision as I remembered.

There were times that I wanted to run away from the world…times I didn’t think it could be fixes.

When tears rained down like water from clouds like thunder, when not a drop of it remained on the rough terra-cotta sand of Arabia.

I remembered.

How He Would Wipe my tears away ever so lovingly…How He Would Gently Rock me to sleep. How He Held my hands and Led me to my destiny. He Showed me how it was meant to be, for me to create the life of my dreams!

Whoever refuses Love is a fool.

This little girl who was once afraid of everything closed her eyes real tight and jumped backwards into the sparkling blue sea.

Then, you see, it was this Love that enlightened me. In fact, the caterpillar had been a butterfly all along!

Shall I not be a grateful servant? – Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

“When they slept, He was awake. When they broke, He held you up. When every means failed, He saved you. When the creation left you, He remained. He always remains. Never forget when the storms pushed you to your knees and there was no one else who could help you, He carried you. When you were broken and you swore this time it couldn’t be fixed…never ever forget who fixed it. Never forget what He saved you from. Never forget how He put you back together. Never, ever forget. That moment when you felt helpless and alone, never forget who never left. To forget this is the greatest heedlessness. No matter what you may have now, never forget those moments when it was only Him. Only Him. That is loyalty.

I am just your average twenty-something ordinary human girl, in continuous pursuit of a better-me, everyday. Researching, writing poetry and journaling have been hobbies of mine for as long as I can remember. So, I thought if I could help even one person with these reflections, why not share it on a blog?! #SocialMedia4Good And that's how these chit-chat sessions began, ladies and gentlemen...
