Abode of my Heart

There's an ache in my heart and it won't go away.
And I find myself drowning in misery, choking back cries.
Allowing my mind to pave a stairway, I float away on a blissful cloud of thought.

I wish to be in the blessed city of Madinah, surrounded by its light.
I wish to gaze upon the Green Dome, oh what a beautiful sight.

I wish to walk in its blessed streets enjoying the serenity.
Letting my every fear and worry float away.

I wish to walk upon Mount Uhud, imagining the battle that took place on its sand.
Almost hearing the neighing of the armies horses and clashing of their swords.

I wish to eat dates from the palm trees of Madinah, a fruit more delicious I have never tasted.

My heart is restless.
My eyes blinded by tears.
How I despise these miles that separate me from my Beloved ﷺ and his beautiful city.

I close my eyes, and disappear into my thoughts once more.

Oh how wonderful would it be, if I lived in Madinah.
Imagine being the neighbour of Muhammad Mustafa ﷺ.

Being able to visit Him ﷺ. and His companions رضي الله عنه everyday.
That would be a dream come true.

If I lived in Madinah I would have
no reason to be sad.
And if ever I was, I'd go sit in Masjidun Nabawi and my sadness will melt away like ice on a hot day.
I would leave smiling and at peace, because how can a person be sad after sitting in the company of the Beloved Of Allah ﷺ.

Imagine how wonderful it would be if I die in Madinah with
لا اله الله محمد رسول الله
on my lips.

To be buried in Baqeeh amongst the Sahabah رضي الله عنه,  the best people to walk the earth after the Ambiya.

And to be raised on Judgment day with
Rasoolullah ﷺ and His companions.
That is what I call success.

My eyes spring open and my heart shatters as I come back to reality.

I wish my thoughts had carried me to Madinah.
But Instead I am left yearning for it thousands of miles away.
The only bit of solace I find is in knowing He ﷺ. receives my greetings even though I am not close by.
And I will continue begging Allah to fulfil my wish and allow Me to be from amongst the residents of Madinah and to be one of the fortunate ones who die in Madinah.

اللهم صل على محمد كلما ذكره الذاكرون و كلما غفل عن ذكره الغافلون

'O Allah! Shower blessings on Muhammad and his children whenever he is remembered by those who remember him, and shower blessings on Muhammad and family whenever he is not remembered by the negligent, and grant him peace constantly in abundance'.

We wonder why there's no Rain

Why No Rain?
The youth find Hayaa to hard, Hijab and modest clothing a thing of the past.
Immodesty now rules the masses, segregation of sexes no longer holds a place in society.
And then we wonder why there is no Rain… We need to celebrate everything , let's have a party. Birthday, Anniversary, Bridal and Baby Showers.
Who cares if it costs more than a grand, who cares if it's waste. Who cares if it's haram.  We’ll justify it all we can.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We've discarded the Sunnah, left our Qur’an on the shelf, forgotten our Salaah, Don't pay Zakaah. We fast only if compulsory but lack true sincerity.
And then we wonder why there's no Rain. We disrespect or elders and parents, we’re uncompassionate toward our young.

Peace Despite The Pain

And suddenly a sense of peace descends despite the pain.
There's a light at the end of this tunnel, an end to this unbearable strain.
A new train is soon arriving, this one filled with blessing and mercy.
For verily He has promised ease after every difficulty.
And we will have happiness after we experience misery.
Today you may have felt like you cannot go on, you felt like falling, never to stand again.
But you have to realise failing is not an option.
Every test sent by Allah has a solution.
He will reveal it at the perfect moment.
Never doubt, never lose hope for surely Allah does not abandon those who hold on to His rope.
Trials are temporary.
So endure them with a beautiful patience, and Allah will shower you with His endless bounty.
Do not resort to sin, thinking it will rid you of your pain. That is the biggest mistake we make.
The cure is found only in remembrance of Your Lord. Raise your hands and make dua, plead and beg your most Merciful Allah.
Fall before Him in prostr…

First Love ❤️

We put our whole hearts into things that are temporary, and we still wonder why we end up with a broken heart.
We place our full trust in everything besides Allah, and then we wonder why things don't turn out right.
We set ourselves up for misery, heartbreak and pain by relying on and attaching ourselves to temporary things, we get attached to people, to places and to things. And when any one of the things we're attached to is taken from us, which is inevitable in this temporary abode, we become devastated, we feel like we can't carry on anymore. Everything comes crumbling down.
But it shouldn't be like that, we shouldn't be attaching ourselves to these things.

We should attach ourselves to Allah!
Because Allah is eternal.
He will always, always be with us.
You will never have to part from Him, ever.

Yes we're allowed to love things and people in the Dunya, but we shouldn't let the love overtake and control us, and yes we're allowed to feel sad and gri…
