you begin to lose control of your struggle against the nafs. you become less moral, less prone to promoting good, and more comforted by sins. guard your chastity brothers and sisters, and never forget who allah is.
Under the burden of solitude,
under the burden of dissatisfaction
the weight,the weight we carry is love.” —
I was dreaming that we lived inside
of a tree house that you built for me
out of pages of books and slices of cake,
fields of sunflowers and the way moonshine
lays on your face.
I built our bed out of star shine and music notes
so that when we sleep
we hear a never-ending symphony
so that when we dream
we can see constellations spinning in our hearts.
Inside the tree house I hung pictures frames
built of guitar strings and poetry.
Inside the picture frames, I put your heart
I wrote words in the corners
that said something like,
See dear, if your heart should ever fall
my frames will always be there
to catch it.
Rabbi yassir wa laa tu’assir
‘O my Lord, create ease (for me/ in my affairs) and do not create difficulty.”
Salam! how are you?
