Simplicity In Existing


March 2017

Love is reminding them to pray,Love is covering them when they fall asleep,

Love is rushing from work to their side when they’re not feeling well,

Love is giving them the last piece of chocolate,

Love is buying the exact snacks they love when grocery shopping,

Love is putting aside your pride and be there for them in time of need,

Love is massaging their feet when they’ve been standing all day, 

Love is bringing them lunch and spend their lunch break with them,

Love is knowing when to let go and move on, 

Love is all these little things, 

These little things that make a difference.

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏”‏ إِنَّ لِلَّهِ أَهْلِينَ مِنَ النَّاسِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَنْ هُمْ قَالَ ‏”‏ هُمْ أَهْلُ الْقُرْآنِ أَهْلُ اللَّهِ وَخَاصَّتُهُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏–

It was narrated that Anas bin Malik said:

“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Allah has His own people among mankind.’ They said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, who are they?’ He said: ‘The people of the Qur’an, the people of Allah and those who are closest to Him.'”

A couple months ago, I had a trip to Puerto Rico and oh my, I don’t think I’ve ever seen nature that beautiful. Being there felt so surreal and mind boggling…you can’t just see nature like that and not feel anything. God is great, God is beautiful, and God only creates beauty. I felt like I was in this heaven that all I could think of doing when seeing such beauty was to thank God for it, was to pray between the sand and the ocean, and was to sit down and think of all the creations that surrounded me. I was blown away by the greenery; from the different palm trees to the beautiful blankets of grass. I was astonished by the different shades of blue I saw in the ocean. I was introduced to many different new plants and fruits that I didn’t even know existed. This trip more than anything was a trip to strengthen my faith, I mean how can you see all this beauty and not thank God for it?
