I try to be neutral when I address God here because I’ve learned that faith and religion tend to draw people away – sometimes even the Godly ones among us, ironically – and in this world we live in today, it is doubly hard, I feel, to be Muslim and professing adoration and belief for what defines my entire life and being. Just this once though, I am making an exception. I came across this on Tumblr (where I find all my treasure gems of quotes, poetry, and other words-trinkets) and I absolutely love it. The Tumblr user, thegreaterjihad, tagged this as perfection and I wholeheartedly agree.
Weak and forgetful as we are, may we all keep in mind, always, that indeed victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and hardship with ease; insyaAllah.
