It doesn't matter if someone lived to
10 or 100, life will feel like a single day
when we look back at it on judgment
One single day.
A day on which Allah says
we can speak no wrong we
will be convinced with certainty
that life was one sunrise and one
When I try to put that into perspective,
these days, months and years I'm living
through amount to nothing more than
Whether each one of those moments
is filled with joy or pain, it is nothing
more than a moment. It will pass and
when it does, the feelings I experienced
in that moment won't be crystallized into
eternity but rather what I did
with those feelings will.
Did I process my rage, understand it
and not allow it to make me an aggressor?
Did I process my joy and turn it into
gratitude as opposed to heedlessness?
Did I take despair and run
with it to Allah or find comfort
from it in what I thought was
refuge but was nothing more than
You and l are here for a day.
If we can just manage to
spend it inside His boundaries
and not cause each other hurt,
we will have succeeded.
And if you and i haven't
fared too well so far, just
know that it's beginning or
middle won't determine it's
final score, it's the end.
I hope you have a beautiful day.
