Written in the stars [Part 3]

(To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!

 "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!
 "Enter thou, then, among My devotees!
 "Yea, enter thou My Heaven!
Al Fajr

It is about the present. Not the past. For the past few eons, I have been wandering alone. Weird enough though. The train of Ramadhan, it will be leaving Her soon. Finishing it's last lap of 'Safety from Hell-fire', plus an extra edition of blessings and happiness, the awaited and searched night - Lailatul Qadr.

Hundreds and thousands and millions of souls are happy in this month. The fabric of space and time itself seems stretched - as if to give each living thing on its dominion to grasp each minute chance and breath the air of blessings and forgiveness from their beloved God, Allah.

In the inner world of my heart. I see the land that was once dry, now fresh and fertile to prepare for the coming of wind of seeds of happiness and acceptance. I see the land that was once dry, now moist enough to welcome thankfulness and gratitude to germinate. I see the land that was once inhospitable, now ready to house colonies of knowledge, dwellings of understandings, habitations of appreciation and love.

Now I understand why I saw continuous networks of cracks spread on the land once. The land did not conceal itself from hope at all. The land did let others to take a peek inside of itself. So that the others would look up and would call upon the owner of all hopes to send down rain of compassion. The drought made the land yearned for drops of blessings. The drought made the land appreciated the presence of humidity of calmness around. The drought made the king of the land recognized who was the true king. Malik al Mulk. Zul Jalaal wal Ikram. King of kings. The Lord of Majesty and Bounty.

I guess I will reside on Earth then. My journey is painful and meaningful enough, I guess. It teaches me something profound.

I wish you all the best. I wish all of you will meet the awaited night of al Qadr, and will come out of Ramadhan with a satisfied, forgiven soul. Amin.

"Forgive yourself"

I am happy. In peace of mind.
And those who, having done something to be ashamed of, or wronged their own souls, earnestly bring Allah to mind, and ask for forgiveness for their sins,- and who can forgive sins except Allah.- and are never obstinate in persisting knowingly in (the wrong) they have done.
 For such the reward is forgiveness from their Lord, and Gardens with rivers flowing underneath,- an eternal dwelling: How excellent a recompense for those who work (and strive)!
 [Ali Imran: 135-136]

  2. Beautiful words coming from a beautiful heart.

    May a garden appear in a once barren earth.
