Habib Umar bin Hafiz
Wo zamaana aur tha jab makaan kache aur log sacche hua karte the
What is love?
when your spouse wakes you up for Fajr prayer.
when your spouse reminds you of Allah SWT.
when a wife makes tea for husband and takes a sip before him to see if it tastes right.
when a husband helps his tired wife in the kitchen even though he worked all day.
when a mother gives her child the best piece of cake.
when your friend holds your hand tightly on a slippery road.
when your brother messages you and asks if reached home on time.
Love is not just a loving someone when you need something from them.

wow, alhamdulillah. thank you kind stranger :)
may I really be what you think of me, i hope. allah knows best. so kind of you to say that. please keep me in your duas :)
there is a sense of sukoon i am feeling tonight.
maybe it has to do with ramadan. maybe it’s the blessed time of fajr, but i feel a sense of peace. it’s not the complete vastness of this state, this peace i am feeling, but it is a tiny opening. a tiny hope.
I’m saddened that it just might be my shyness that prevented us from talking for so many years. so much miscommunication could have cleared and it didn’t till tonight. however, there is still so much to talk about. so much i need to tell him. so much he needs to hear.
i saw him today and all i could think of was how i could have cried in front of him, how much i loved him with whole hearted conviction and if he were to ask me to shed my blood, i would bleed myself dry. if he were to ask me for money, i’d go bankrupt. if he were to ask me to take care of his family, i would quit my educational goal and be by their side. all for him. always for him.
he listed all these qualities he found Prophetic about me, which mashAllah i felt like it was the goodness of his heart, with such humility he said the kindest things. i felt so blessed, but it made me question. if you regard me in such a high manner and think the world of me, what prevented you from accepting me, making me yours, taking care of me all of which i was more than willing to do for you.
i am to blame equally. i wonder for a moment he thought maybe i rushed in my decision making? maybe i should re-think this? i will never know. we will never know. i pray for what is best.
however, may He let him know, that i will always be there for him.
In Urdu, there’s no direct phrase for I love you, instead we have “tum ullu ke pathe ho, kaminey” which means you’re the beat of my heart
and I think that’s beautiful
[ Allah ] said, “Fear not. Indeed, I am with you both; I hear and I see. [20:46]
"I hear and I see…" Subhanallah…
this is so beautiful!
just imagine HOW He hears and sees us. our tiny human minds cannot even fathom to what extent, degree He thinks of us, takes care of us.
alhamdulillah, for the proof that we are never alone. He is always there.
