Into prostration I fall ~

Bint Abdur Ra'uf November 22, 2012 2

I deposit my fear,
my hope,
my rise
my fall,
into the depths of the ocean,
the ocean of my Lord’s Mercy.

So, I dive,
I dive so deep into prostration I fall.
In an instance,
a life jacket is thrown at me,
I begin to swim.

For a moment,
I pause; and remind myself,
so long as I seek help through myself,
I will inevitably drown.

Whenever that happens,
when that situation overtakes me,
I need to redirect my sail to His divine guidance.
Only then,
the tides will not engulf me in,
but will land me safely to the shore.

    In difficult times, sometimes we forget about Allaah, His Power and His Might, such that we become saddened, almost losing hope.

    Then wallaahi you have those glimpses of light, small miracles which remind you there is Allaah, overlooking, the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between, able to do all things.
