“Sadness departs with a prostration (sajdah). Happiness comes with a sincere supplication (du’ā). Allāh does not forget the good you do, nor does He forget the good you did to others and the pain you relieved them from. Nor will He forget the eye which was about to cry but you made it laugh. Live your life with this principle: be good even if you do not receive good; not because of other’s sake but because Allāh loves the good-doers.”
~ Ibn Al Qayyim
The strength that you show today will pay off. It will. Soon this cloud of pain will turn into the open skies of tomorrow. The flames that you are baring to hold will soon turn into sparks of purity that light your way. Your strength, right now, within this moment, will pay off. Stay patient, have faith, and never give up on your journey. You are getting there, one step at a time, through the darkness of the night and into the light.
Mentari dan rembulan...
Ketika mentari mengundur diri,
rembulan muncul kembali.
Setia pada aturan Ilahi,
berkhidmat untuk manusia di alam ini.
Maka adalah tidak adil jika manusia mengingkari,
perintah dan larangan Ilahi.
