I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. I say this because it was a perfectly ordinary morning yet I feel so disappointed within. Its noon now and my mind is filled with negativity. It is one of those days when one wakes up and all of their life’s struggles and worst memories hit them like a storm. And the heart’s spirit sinks so low, there seems to be no hope of hope dwelling in it again. At such times, all one wants to do is talk to someone about it all. Just that. Be heard. But time plays a cruel joke and one is left all alone, just on that very particular day, everyone needed seems to be busy with their life. It is quite ironic that when one wants to be left alone, they are flooded with suggestions, sympathies and empty words of comfort yet when one really needs them, they are left alone to deal with their misery. Such are the times when some realize the power of the Almighty. They do not even remember when it was last that they prayed, yet they beg, they cry and surrender themselves shamelessly to the Creator. And then gradually, a profound peace makes way into the soul due to a suddenly conspicuous love for Allah. This peace is followed by hope and happiness so intense that one miraculously forgets what made them upset in the first place.
On such days, the true meaning of my existence dawns upon me. I feel a sense of remorse on realizing that living my life loving the creations, I forgot my loyalty towards the Creator. And yet, the Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim (the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful) endlessly Gives, Blesses and Forgives us like no other entity. Life’s incidents time and again prove that there is a Superpower residing above us. And it is a fact that is crucial to understand because it humbles one, making him more human. More like how we were when we were born and less like our morphed selves.
