I found comfort in Allah’s promises
knowing that you and I,
we both don’t ache in vain.

That the knots in our chests
are meant to get untied
with prayers and patience.

So please hold on a little,
just a little, my dear,
for we might be not that far
from Jannah.

عن أبي هريرة، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “المؤمنُ القويُّ خيرٌ وأحبُّ إلى اللَّهِ منَ المؤمنِ الضَّعيفِ ، وفي كلٍّ خيرٌ ، احرِص على ما ينفعُكَ ، واستِعِن باللَّهِ ولا تعجِزْ ، وإن أصابَكَ شيءٌ ، فلا تقُل : لو أنِّي فعلتُ كان كذا وَكَذا ، ولَكِن قل : قدَّرَ اللَّهُ ، وما شاءَ فعلَ ، فإنَّ لو تَفتحُ عملَ الشَّيطانِ” صحيح مسلم

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: “A strong believer is better and is more lovable to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in everyone, (but) cherish that which gives you benefit (in the Hereafter) and seek help from Allah and do not lose heart, and if anything (in the form of trouble) comes to you, don’t say: If I had not done that, it would not have happened so and so, but say: Allah did that what He had ordained to do and your" if" opens the (gate) for the Satan.” Sahih Muslim 2664

أحبك يارب.. فعندما تضيق قلوب الناس أجدك تبسط يدك إلي لأعود إليك وأسمعك تعدني بجنة فوق أحلامي وخيالي..

I love you O Lord, for when people’s hearts are hard towards me I find you opening your arms so that I may return to you and I hear you promising me with a Paradise that’s beyond my dreams and imagination.
