Ramadan Reflections: Believing in Allah’s Rahmah. Come What May!

An abandoned egg…
A miscarriage and not the first…
A hollow hole in the matki where the budgies’ hope once lay. When do we give up?

Their eyes squeeze close in pain. He had fed his dear wife seeds from his own beak. She had nested for hours in patience, barely leaving the matki. There’s only so much we can do to make our dream come true. As winters draw in, budgies lay batches of eggs to hatch in 20 days. For this couple, not a single batch had a baby budgie squeaking to life. Despite having a warm, peaceful home with timely food and water, their plans were not Willing to come to pass.

Have you ever been in the same spot? The spot where your efforts, duas, tears and blissful expectations all seem to be in vain? If yes, then read on.

This post is for the heart wounded by the shards of broken dreams. You wonder why things just aren’t happening for you. You who cry yourself to sleep at night. He knows all your worrisome wonderings. He listens, and He responds.

For all the times you’ve wondered when to give up hope, here’s your final answer:

there is no such point for you; you are a #believer! Being a believer isn’t just about fulfilling obligations, doing good and avoiding wrong. It’s about believing in Allah (SWT)’s Rahmah for us in times when every cell of your body is exhausted in search of happier days. Believing is trusting that He will bring the dawn no matter how dark the night gets. Believing is knowing that when you are #abandoned by the world, you are not alone, for He is with you.

He is Lovingly Watching over you just like a #mother watches over her #baby. The only point where all hope is lost is the point we cease to believe in #Allah and may we never reach that point. May we always turn to Him in #hope, saying:

اللَّهُمَّ رَحْمَتَكَ أَرْجُو فَلَا تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِي طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ وَأَصْلِحْ لِي شَأْنِي كُلَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَا أَنْتَ

“Oh Allah! Your Rahmah I hope for so do not leave me to myself for the twinkling of an eye and set all my affairs straight. There is no God but You.”

May the #hope you’ve nested in your heart for so long finally come to pass this #Ramadan, Ameen!
