{22} …Part 13-Nov.8

A busy life hides the people U miss. Distance pushes them further. Time becomes limited to talk with one another. But what the eyes can’t see, are the Thoughts & Duaas that will always keep us close. May Allaah :SWT: Eternally Bless U & accept all Ur Duaas & grant U the Best in this World, Jannah & in the Aakhirah. Aameen.

Hazrat Ibn Abbas (Radhiyallahu Anhum) narrates that the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: “There is no Angel in the Heaven that does not respect ‘Ibn’ Khattab (Radhiyallahu Anhu)’ and no Shaitan on the earth but that he is afraid of ‘Ibn Khattab (Radhiyallahu Anhu)’.”

. . .Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life. Things are to be used and people are to be loved. But the problem in today’s world is that, People are used and things are loved. In this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits they become character; Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. Do u know the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together & sleep together. Even though they never see each other. Friendship should be just like that! Life is vanity without FRIENDS.

This is truly dedicated to you my friend on this special, auspicious day of yours. We met in the path of Allaah, as well as departed in His path. Down memory lane, we go back in the days, years before. It seems like yesterday, when I first saw you. I spoke to you as if I knew you forever. I will always be thankful to my Allaah for bringing you into my life for we were a means of changing each other for the good. There are many things I have learned from you, which I will never forget. Yes we had our ups and downs and roundabouts. Which only made us stronger. Our bound of friendship grew to the extent that we were always their for each other. A shoulder to cry on, a moment of happiness & sadness to share. We were never far away. It felt like we got into the eyes of people who must of done Nazar on us. They couldn’t stand our bond, out of mere jealously…that ended up the result of our separation.

Forever you have instilled certain characteristics into me, that have set my standard high, if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have thread this path through the sufferings and pain. You kept me going. You were always there to motivate me, and to make sure I hang on tightly, and never fall loose. You will however still remain in my Duaas. We got separated across the oceans, only to further acquire our Deeni Knowledge. We kept encouraging each other to learn knowledge and that would be our only success. We kept on decreasing and increasing in our imaan. It was like the boat kept sinking and rising back till it reached its shore. And we both completed our Deeni Knowledge. 

Little did we know that we may have been far away in distance but very close to heart. We plan and Allaah plans, and He is the best of planners. Many promises must of been broken. But surly Allaah is oft-forgiving. We stood by when there was none other. We were loved by some and hated by many. What have we done to them to be treated likewise? 

“I wonder how I got here…??? Too lazy to wipe my tears…;

Wishing you were near… Praying that they’d change…

…IF ONLY… IF ONLY… They’d accept their mistake…

Consequences would be faced… Uplifting my headaches…

She smiles not knowing why… She cries throughout the night…

Having no one there… Hands raised towards the skies…

Unto her Lord she cries …Yaa Allaah! Yaa Ghaffar! 

The pain she only feels… That which she only sees,

And she smiles not knowing why… And she cries throughout the night!”

There are many things I want to thank you for, but I don’t know how. With tears in my eyes, a heart full of sorrow, my mind and thoughts wondering about searching for words to say, they just won’t come to me. All I can say is that I leave your reward with Allaah, and hoping that you’d earn nothing less than Jannatul-Firdous. Today we are battling within ourselves with the challenges of society. May Allaah accept us for His work. There are countless memories I’d love to share, only that I won’t… Your memory will forever be embedded in my heart. Last but not least, I want to ask you for forgiveness for the numerous shortcomings, for my faults, for the many times I’ve slipped, my harsh heart crying words and silences. I believe I was not the best friend ever. But please do forgive me. And remember me in your precious Duaas.  I can’t promise to always be there for you like I used to be, but u’ll remain in my Duaas, sometimes life puts us in certain situations & cirumstances that just make us far. 

P.S. The next chapter of your life has already opened…I wish you and your Hubby, all the eternal happiness & success. May you always be blessed, and be a means of Hidayah for the nation. Aameen. For truly your a hidden gem, no one will know you and cherish you the way I did; but don’t forget I’m very happy for you, and always praying for that smile always to remain. My Duaas were for you yesterday, today, and will be forever, Inshallah. If we won’t meet again in this world then surly in JANNAH. And if you don’t find me in the lane of Jannatis please do come find me, I just might need you to hold my hand taking me into JANNAH. Fee Amaanillah. Al-Widaa. Was salaam.
