The Coming of Change

April 24, 2012

Driving down Jacaranda Lane...

Everywhere I turn, I see bursts of color. Spring is here, with all it’s got! The Jacaranda trees! The ladybugs! They are everywhere. Is it just me or is the world looking more beautiful than ever before? Even though we humans are trying our best to make a mess of it, it still isn’t giving up on us. Change is coming! I can feel it!

We’ve seen enough negativity, bloodshed, and corruption in the land. It’s time to see the tables turn. 2012 is anything but the end of the world! Are the planets lining up? They are all coming around to see the most powerful and amazing revolutionary happening, in the history of the universe! Right here on planet Earth! Just you wait and see.

All you people out there thinking that there’s nothing left to live for, your days of making this world a gloomy place, are over. You know why? Positively is coming back, and its coming strong! Watch out!

I use to feel this energy inside of me. Somewhere deep inside. Locked up! But now it seems to have found its way out and is seeping into my bloodstream. The hardships, heartbreak, and sorrows have helped in synchronizing my mind, heart, and soul. I thank you Allah, for putting me through all of it! To make me stronger, not only emotionally, but spiritually as well.

As much as it might seem difficult to accept….one gets closer to Allah in hardship and that is a fact. But you can look at it in another way. Allah is choosing you, out of the millions of people around you to be close to Him! What an honor it is to be nearer to the Creator than others around you, those who are living a life of temporary bliss! If only you choose to look at it that way.

A few days ago, my mother was telling me about one of the prophets, Hazrat Ayub (Job). His life had phases of being blessed with the best in the world to having nothing at all, to a point where even his family left him, and then back to the top.  Hazrat Ayub (AS) cherished the days in which he was in the worst of his conditions, because those were the days in which Allah would personally ask him how he was doing! That is what love really is! Not looking at what you have or have not received from the one you love but just to have the feeling of belonging!

The Holy Quran: Chapter 38

Surah-Sad

Commemorate Our servant Job, Behold he cried to his Lord: “The Evil One has afflicted me with distress and suffering”! (41) (The command was given:) “Strike with thy foot: here is (water) wherein to wash, cool and refreshing and (water) to drink.” (42) And We gave him (back) his people and doubled their number― as a Grace from Ourselves, and a thing for commemoration, for all who have Understanding. (43) “And take in thy hand a little grass and strike therewith: and break not (thy oath).” Truly We found him full of patience and constancy: how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn (to Us)! (44)

May Allah grant us the wisdom and faith like that of Hazrat Ayub (AS)! So that all our hardships turn into blessings. So that our bond with Allah becomes unbreakable, no matter how hard Satan tries!
There are three words that can change your life:
  • SUBHANALLAH: Glory be to Allah
  • ALHAMDULILLAH: Praise be to Allah
  • ALLAH-HU-AKBAR: Allah is the Greatest
The zikr of these three words have rescued me from falling into the pits of depression! Use them to light your way as well, and InshAllah, no depression or sorrow can bring you down.
