I’ve have stumbled many times in my life and I have been at my worst and I was on the verge of giving up. The walls felt as though they were closing in on me.
I have had several near death experiences, or things I’ve walked away from with just a couple of contusions or at the worst a high ankle sprain.
The link that all these have in common was I remembered calling out to Allah when I was in dire need and he answered.
I’ve seen things come to fruition that I have asked for and more came with it more than I could have ever imaged. You reading this from me currently, is a dua answered from our Creator.
I get very emotional and long-winded when it comes to how merciful Allah has been to me in my short life on this earth. Some things can not be explained in a quick blog post.
My point is this, NEVER fail to call Your Lord no matter the situation. HE will always answer. Heading into these last 10 night of Ramadan, I plan on plenty of “Face Time” (praying in sujood). This is where we lay it all out and leave the outcome of affairs we desire to have here in these last ten night.
Allah is waiting for us to call on Him & He will respond.
“If my servant asks of me, indeed I am near”.
The stories of the prophets in the Quran are lighthouses to steer us away from rocky shores of life. No Matter what you face in life there is a story that we can gain benefit and purification from the stories of the Prophets mentioned in the Quran. As we face the same recurring trends over and over again the older we get. We see that life is a merry go round, just wait and you will see the same thing come around again. We can buck the system by learning about previous nations of the past and make a brighter future tomorrow by just taking the time to read and understand these examples that our Creator highlighted for us in this book that was reviled during this month of Ramadan.
The month of Ramadan is so special to me for it is when the Quran was reviled. To me, it only makes the most sense that we fast during this month because of the physical and the spiritual virtues it provides. We tap into our spiritual selves to receive and understand this spiritual healing provided to us by our Creator.
It is a time when the monkey is off our back by that I mean by this: ” It is said when the month of Ramadan comes, the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are shut up, the devils are put in chains and a proclaimer proclaims O seeker of good, advance. O seeker of evil, come back.”
Personally, this time has been great and I’ve reached new heights in my life personally by reading the Quran in its Arabic form this month. But I’ve had my deep lows 😢 this month too. I’ve recovered really quick because of the love of the Quran this month. The Quran and I have forged a special relationship, one can only pray for me that I can continue this love.
Taqwa, can be translated to many different words and can carry many different meanings. I define that word as God Conscience and not some much as “fear” as it can be taken. Check out this piece and may it help you with these 15 days left in Ramadan.
