You might think that there is nothing special in this photo.
But for me, there is and I want to tell you what it is to remind you and make you reflect just how it made me.
I remember exactly 13 years ago when I first encountered seeing a name of a sahabi in one of the streets in Makkah or somewhere in Saudi, I can’t seem to remember the exact place but it was during the time we went for hajj. I was little back then and I barely knew who he was.
When we got back and I started learning about the lives of the companions of the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam (and I know anyone who would study and learn about them will develop love towards them), I started to make this du'a that Allah grants me the opportunity again to see something similar or that He makes me live in a place that makes me remember them (the sahabah) - like seeing their names as streets or something like that.
Today, after exactly 13 years, Allah answered that du'a of mine. Indeed, there is khair in waiting and there is such an indescribable beautiful feeling when you finally see your du'a being answered by Allah. Allahu'akbar.
Wallah, I only asked Allah to see something similar but He gave me so much more. O Allah, forgive us for we have been greatly ungrateful.
Let me remind you that your du'a will be answered, no matter how long the waiting will be, never lose hope and keep asking Allah for Allah answers, Allah responds!
Indeed, you may have been experiencing or having something that others have been making du'a to Allah for many years, in this case - living in a Muslim country. Appreciate and be grateful, O slaves of Allah.
