"All night a man called “Allah” until his lips were bleeding. Then the devil sad, “How come you’ve been calling Allah all night, and never heard Allah say “Here, I am!”? The man suddenly felt abandoned. Depressed he fell asleep. In a dream, he met Abraham who asked him, “Why are you regretting praying to Allah?” The man said, “I called and called, but Allah never replied.” Abraham then explained, 

Allah has said: “your calling my name is My reply. Your longing for Me is My message to you. All my attempts to reach you are reflected in your attempts to reach me.”

In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”, waits a thousand replies of “Here I am."

Maulana Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi. (via will-not-give—up)

ajeebinsaan “Call on me, I will answer you.” (40:60)
Remember last night?

With all life’s delights, it’s the small daily joys which you overlook that really build your world. Take time to listen and absorb… The peace of a prayer, the smile of a toddler, the meal on the table, the cup of tea and good book, the rain tapping on your window and dancing on it’s sill, the sun bidding farewell only to rise again with a greeting, the smell of good food, sweet fragrances and baked bread, even the human chatter of friends catching up in the distance. These are the sounds of life…

May Allah bring peace to those who are suffering around the world; who are made to live in fear with only sounds of artillery and weapons over their heads. Allahumma-nsurhum nasran ‘azizan.


"By Allah I do not fear for you poverty, but i fear that the world would be abundant for you as it has been for those before you, so you compete for it as they have competed for it, so it destroys you as it has destroyed them."

~Rasoolullah salallahu aleyhi wa salam~

"Your soul was created too beautiful for you to wreak havoc on it with immorality and immodesty."

~Saad Tasleem~

"Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be far sighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be shortsighted as to not able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never runs out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full."
