Beautiful moments are created with due diligence, sincere perseverance, immense hardships, and the belief that you will overcome all the obstacles you encounter as long as you place your trust in Him. Because with every difficulty, there is ease. & when you realize that, it becomes the most beautiful of moments.
“Leave that which makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt. Verily, truth is tranquillity and falsehood is doubt.”
- Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
[Sunan al-Tirmidhi and Sunan al-Nasaai] (sahih)
But to hide your true self and make a vain display, I think that’s just running away from reality. To know what you are really like and acknowledge it as a positive thinking of yourself, isn’t that what true strength is?
If no one has told you this today, then let this be it.
Let this be the “how are you?”
the “are you okay?”
the “I’m here for you”
the “you’re not alone”
the “I care about you”
the “I love you.”
Let this be me reaching out to you
when no one else seems like it.
Take these words and replay them over and over.
Plug them into your heart,
and let the words flow through your arteries and veins,
especially if today is one of those damn awful days/nights.
How are you? Are you okay? I’m here for you.
You’re not alone. I care about you. I love you.
Imām Al-Zuhrī (rahimahulah):
"We used to sometimes come to a scholar and what we learned of his manners was more beloved to us than the knowledge we took from him.”
Abū Nuʿaym, Ḥilyatu Al-ʾAwliyāʾ #4575
