Round And Round...And Round And Round Again @_@

I've seen better days... Alhamdulillah nevertheless...


How can a person see so much grief and strain in life and still be able to tolerate it??


The plain answer is: Allah.

What do we do when we're distressed? We run to Him.


Yesterday, I was on the bus with Mom, and a sort of untimely topic came up. We were looking at the passers-by, and wondered, how many of those actually think of Allah and His effect in their lives?

We assumed not much. I mean, we're in a society that's far from being religious, which led us to think, even back in our Islamic "religious" countries, people are far from considering this aspect in life. Meditating. Thinking of what is, and what's to become.

It made me feel grateful and sad at the same time. Grateful that I'm positively conscious about Allah's blessings on me (though I do falter at times when I feel depressed from life's stresses). Sad because they're so many people...

And round and round we went on the bus...

The importance is to know for real. And send thanks.


Thank God for good health.

Thank God for family.

Thank God for Islam.

Thank God for good, lovely friends.

Thank God for the awareness... hoping for more.

And thank you dear reader for tuning in :)

Till next time,

Salam Sparkles,

Once again I can completely relate. I do indeed wish we lived closer as it would be so nice to have someone close by that understood.

In my work and I, of course, in life I see so many people in pain. Yes some of it may appear to be physical pain, however, more often than not it is associated with their inner thoughts (i.e., feelings, emotions or lack there of). We seem to live (well actually I can only compare this time period as I've not lived in others) in a time where people want to deny their feelings or numb themselves so much thus causing them to lose connection with their life source---Allah.

Thank you for being you and for sharing your thoughts, feelings and love with us all, alhamdullilah.

It's always been what's inside that's most important, hasn't it?

May Allah grant you strength in what you do (so demanding!)... one thing I know for sure? Amira's lucky to have a mommy like you :)

I'm glad to have communicated what's inside in a way that reaches out to others... and I'm glad to have you as one of my receivers ^_^
