"Allah is the light of the heavens and the Earth." [Surah an Nur: 35]
Moments of impact: when your mind gets shoved by the inevitable truth. Like a slap directly of the face when you were deep asleep … even drowned; a slap that draws every cell in your whole being to attentiveness that He is Allah The Almighty.
Awareness starts to licker through every vein, informing you of the ‘Ghafla’ you’ve been spinning in. All of a sudden, all of it, everything that you might have knew, all the struggles and hardships you’ve experienced start to make sense. Not one moment ever after does loneliness sting, because you don’t just believe he is always with you … you KNOW.
In your head, the universe shifts to a whole new perspective. Everything in the world you thought you knew makes no sense. You want nothing … will be nothing but what HE subhanahu wa ta’aala wants you to be.
Convulsively, and all out of love, you run off to his words “Qur’aan”. Your mind becomes vying to know … to understand what he has for you. All that time, that bond you used to feel … like there’s something bigger. Bigger than everything that may have crossed your way … becomes familiar.
Alhamdulillah for He chose us to be not of those who only awake when they long sleep.
