Tonight I was reminded.

I can’t even express how it made me feel.

Written down, was a stark condemnation of my actions, and the ease with which I forget the favours bestowed on me. 

Tears of shame but also of gratitude – to be so blessed again that I am reminded and not left to wander heedlessly.

  1. Don’t be too hard on yourself, now!! You know, in Arabic, “mankind” and the verb, “to forget” come from the same verbal root: نسى

    So, as some scholars would argue [and I’d have to toss in my two cents with them as well!] that it is mankind’s nature to forget and Allah knows this [“…And He (or he) is a witness to it…” Qur’an 100:6-7]. So smile! You’re human!

  2. You’re right – Allah would not be Al-Ghafur if we were not made to be those who repent.
    It just hit me right where I needed it to. So thank you for that 🙂

  3. Iris,

    Though a little hard, it feels good have those “veils” lifted.

    Marc…that was a wonderful reminder as well.

  4. Dy.na.mite.!!!- good to see you back:)
    I feel surrounded by good people in a virtual kind of way!
    You know it was hard and I cried because I needed to and then I felt happiness.
    The true sadness would be if you ever stop being reminded, God forbid.

  5. Thanks, all. I am glad you found something in it.

    Salaams.
