What now?

Audhubillah hi minas syaitan nir rajeem,
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem,
La hawla wala quwwata illa billah hil aliyyil azeem.

Your mind is your instrument. Learn to be its master and not its slave

Seek truth in meditation, not in moldy books. Look in the sky to find the moon, not in the pond

Through meditation and by giving full attention to one thing at a time, we can learn to direct attention where we choose.

What is meditation you ask?
la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah
I do not know :)
for each their own as they say..
may your way be better than mine.

“Subhanaka, la ‘ilma lana illa ma ‘alamtana, innaka Anta’l ‘Alimu’l Hakim...” (Sura 2:32)
Allahu akbar... Ya ‘Alimu, ya Hakim, ‘alimna ma yanfa’una wa zidna ‘ilman!

A poet says:

ma la yakunu fa la yakunu bi hilatin
abadan wa ma huwa kayinun sayakunu
sa yakunu ma huwa kayinun fi waqtihi
wa akhul jihalati mutábun mahzunu
fa laálla ma takhshahu laysa bi kayinin
wa laálla ma tarjuhu laysa yakunu
yasaál qawiyyu fa la yanalu bi saáyihi
hažžan wa yahža áajizun wa mahinu

That which is not ordained, will never come to pass.
The predestined shall be; and needs it not a cause.
The fated will happen indeed, but at the time assigned
Ignorants tire and worry; to grief they are consigned
It’s likely what you fear, may never come to be -
Your hope to attain which, mayhap you’ll never see
The strong and sterling cannot, achieve by sweat or skill
Such fortunes weak and worthless; attain by luck’s spell.

Alhamdulillah! A beautiful and worthy post :) But who is the poet who wrote the final lines?

Ya Haqq!
