Are We Laughing Or Are We Crying?

Putrajaya. Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia. 2010.

Salaam!

Ramadhan will soon come to an end. Are we laughing or crying?

We can’t afford NOT to be crying in front of Allah, the Merciful, All-Aware.

Tears flow when we remember how much Allah has blessed us with and how much we disobey Him. We can never repay Allah for everything we have, yet we still blatantly commit sins both big and small: whether it’s backbiting, hurting other human beings, not standing up for the truth, treating our family badly, lying, doing good deeds to show off, cheating, etc.

Allah opens ways out of problems for us, easing our burdens. Yet, we still disobey Him and take His Mercy for granted.

Take this last few days of Ramadhan to self-reflect. Those with true intellect reflect on the subtle signs of Allah ‘azzawajal.

Have we sit and ponder upon the meaning of the Holy Book? And act upon its knowledge?!

Shaytan has more knowledge than all of humanity from the beginning of time, but did his knowledge help him or hurt him? We ask Allah to make our knowledge an evidence for us and not against us on yaum ul Qiyamah. Ameen.

Life is Awesome!

About lyemoon.

I would like to travel the world and journey the footsteps of Ibn Battuta. I would like to be a zookeeper and tame the lions. I would like to sit at the edge of a cliff and bask in the sun. I would like to drink tea and read a book. I would like to sit and dream all day long.
