WHEN THE HEART IS WARM AND RELAXED

When our heart is warm and relaxed, a cramped home feels spacious.
When our heart is cold and stressed, a spacious house feels cramped.


We need to protect the spiritual component of our hearts
Comfort, hardships, all are determined by it.
When our heart is open and relaxed, a hard life feels comfortable
A difficult life feels luxurious
Being poor and yet feeling rich and joyful
When our spiritual heart is cold and tight
Wherever we go, we feel like we are being squeezed
A wide open space feels narrow and constricted
We are wealthy and yet we feel poor, we have and yet we feel as if we have not
Whatever we eat, it doesn’t taste right
And yet there are various types of dishes served in front of us
When our heart is small and tight, we don’t know what we are looking for
As if we are searching for something that we don’t own
We feel as if we don’t own anything
We feel something is missing endlessly, we feel lacking always
Thus, the feelings of discomfort, thrusting into our hearts
Feeling of restlessness pouncing our hearts
Like our chest being affected by the invisible cancer
The only feeling there is pain

THE ROLE OF GOD IN LIFE

God is needed in life
He is everything for everyone
Let us create a picture to understand who God really is
The world we live in belongs to God
In the sky above the earth there are the sun, the moon and the stars: all are God’s creations
The air we breathe so we may live, each moment to another is bestowed by God
The beating heart is the body’s engine as designed by God
The mind is used to think and gain knowledge, a gift from God
Our physical body which is in constant use for human needs, is created by God
Our heart or soul of interchanging emotions
Such as happiness, sadness, comfort and hate: ruled by God
When we are sick, we take the medicine, but God is the One who cures not the medicine itself
When we are hungry and thirsty, we need to eat, all food and drink come from God
After eating we feel full, God is the One who makes it so
We feel tired after work and in need of rest, God allows us to sleep,
Then our energy returns to normal so may continue working, God is the One who gives it back
For enjoyment, God created man and woman
so that each may make the other happy
this joy comes from God
To bring forth the next generation
this is the result of the relationship between a man and woman
The birth of a child is also an enjoyment to both the man and woman, the parents
it will help fill the emptiness of the heart
When the relationship starts to break
the child will help bring them back together
Similarly, if we ponder deeply
and observe closely that there is nothing beyond God’s control
Then, God is greatly needed in life
or life is God’s responsibility
But why do humans forget God?
Why do humans not feel God’s role?
This is why God punishes people with the feeling of emptiness
The heart in distress, though they may have power and wealth
Do fear God and love Him
God is greatly needed
God is everything in the lives of everyone

REPENTANCE – TAUBAH TARHIL

Image
Please forgive O Allah Most Supreme

Please forgive O Allah Most Supreme

Please forgive O Allah Most Supreme

Allah, You are the only God, there is none other except You

You are Most Most Alive

You are Most Independent

Your servant repent O Allah

Your servant repent O Allah

Your servant repent O Allah

Repentance from a cruel servant

Who feels powerful even when he is powerless

Powerless to cause any harm

Powerless to give any benefits

Powerless to take any life

Powerless to give any life

Powerless to resurrect a life

LET’S ALWAYS BE TEARFUL

 

Image

Let’s always be tearful

We do not know our fate and destiny

Even though we are under guidance

It is not necessarily that we have been accepted

We should always feel sad

Thinking of our fate and destiny

We are uncertain of the moment of our death

Whether we are in faith

or otherwise

We should always feel sad

Even though we perform our religious duties

It is not necessarily that they are accepted

Even though we are under guidance

Will it last till the end

We do not have the time to laugh

Even though we are in repentance

It is not necessarily that it is accepted

Let’s always be tearful

We do not know our own finale

Let’s ask from God

So that His guidance lasts till the end

Let’s always be tearful

We do not know our fate and destiny

Even though we are under guidance

It is not necessarily that we have been accepted
