Letting go….

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

I hope you are well.

During Ramadan, we have left the permissible acts of eating, drinking and having marital relations for the sake of Allah(SWT). This, in itself, has been a big struggle due to the fatigue, exhaustion, hunger, thirst, reduction in mental agility and lack of concentration but our love for the One(SWT) Who(SWT) gave us these things far out-weighed our desires.

Within my life, I recently also gave up things for the sake of Allah(SWT), such as going on YouTube amongst others. This was because I could see that my time spent in these activities was being wasted and it made me realise just how little the time we have in Ramadan but also in life.

We use the extraordinary blessing of time in such a disrespectful way at times, wasting away parts of ourselves to the television and internet.

Time in Islam is such a huge blessing that there is even a surah all about time, surah al-Asr!

But going back to my main point. Leaving things for the sake of Allah(SWT) always leads to happiness, tranquility, ease and a higher level of imaan. As what we leave is most probably going to be something of the dunya, it only helps our hearts to be freed further from the dunya and it makes us become more dependent on Allah(SWT), the One(SWT) Who(SWT) created those things!

Insha’Allah may we all become of those who are able to be free from the dunya and to have full and complete reliance on Allah(SWT) only. May we also be able to use our time in a very productive way to gain the most benefit for ourselves before our deaths! Ameen.

JazakAllahu khairan.

Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

May you always find the same determination even after Ramadan. You are right, leaving the things for the sake of Allah even it is against our own desires really leads to priceless happiness. There’ll always be this peace in heart every time we choose Allah in our every affair. Inshaa Allah we will continue to use our time wisely for the sake of Allah. Advance Eid Mubarak!

    • Alhumdulillah. But these are just a very small few that I have fought against! I still have a lot to go and insha’Allah I will be able to successfully fight against them too! Ameen. Insha’Allah ameen. And to you and the entire Ummah, ameen as well! Exactly! That indescribable feeling within that allows you to know that you are truly happy! Most definitely! Ameen. JazakAllahu khairan. To you too. May your Eid be blessed sister. Insha’Allah ameen.xx
