“And it is He who has brought you to life, then He will cause you to die, then bring you to life (again); most surety man is very ungrateful”(Quran, 22:66)
“Surat Al-’Insan [verse 3] – Indeed, We guided him to the way, be he grateful or be he ungrateful.”
Its true. Take me for example. I mean I have gotten what ever I ever wanted, when I wanted it. My mom always reminds me of this. Its good, Alhumdulilah, but then if that thing that I wanted wasn’t good for me or even if it was, I feel like I become a monster [exaggerating?]. Well, not a ‘monster-monster’ [lol I only picture monsters that eat everything in their path], I mean like a confused-monster person. I guess I get so confused or just want to make things work. Whatever, this doesn’t have to make sense to anyone except me right now. Great, I sound selfish now.
I’m not a cat fanatic, [more of a rock person tbh] but this image will do.
All I have to do is pray and dua to Allah. I want to feel content.
I guess you noticed the punctuation mark at the end of the title. Yes, its intentional, not a complete sentence, but lets not get into that.
I’ve just been thinking about life as usual. This is bad. Thinking isn’t supposed to be bad. I think I over do it, dang it, I did it again (Cue Britney’s hit album. Not really). I thought everything was ok. I mean it is in reality, just not in my head. Ahhh. I have an exam worth 40% of my grade. What am I doing.
That is all. Rabbi Zidni Ilma ( Oh Allah, increase in my knowledge ).
Wait, not ‘the end’ of these blog posts. Relieved huh. Lol. I meant, ‘the end’, of the 30-days-of-Ramadan-2014-marathon that took way too long, with way too many gaps to complete. Anyway, I did it! I’m not a quitter. Alhumdulilah.
Love for the sake of Allah. It ends the argument and self loathing in your head all the time. Alhumdulilah. I’d explain more but, I am saving that for another post, Insha Allah. Dua for me!
“On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection: ‘Where are those who love one another through My glory? Today I shall give them shade in My shade, it being a day when there is no shade but My shade.’” [Bukhari (also by Malik).]“
That was the point. And aren’t you excited that its almost the 30th post!!! Better late than never, right? I don’t like quitting.
Ok, so I’ve run into Eid Ul-Adha during my thirty days of Ramadan posting-conquest. So, Eid Mubarak!!! I wish I was with my family…or someone..anyone ( quo sad dialogue from The Lion King ). Alhumdulilah none the less. Dua for me!!
Read this…its only a paragraph, the rest is food. Hehe. (hopefully this isn’t considered a bribe)
