بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم
Guess who’s back at it again!!
At first I thought I would be able to write like once a week, but subhaanallah at the pace time is flying by, it’s hardly possible.
I keep learning as I go about this journey. See this is what I love about this. Studying the Qur’aan , its not just a book; its THE BOOK. I am not only memorizing, but I have noticed that little by little this study is redefining ME ,My character , My Attitude towards situations and people, My Schedule.
If there is one prominent thing I have experienced, it is that if you are truly determined on doing your hifz, and sincerely make it a priority in your life , it will become compulsory to put some of the less important activities in your life on hold for the moment . You have to do this sacrifice. You have to do hifz giving it your WHOLE self. Put ALL your heart in it , give it your attention and concentration , enjoy every single moment of this beautiful blessing.
I am used to be constantly on the look out for opportunities to do something new; cooking lessons, sewing lessons , new arts and crafts , Arabic calligraphy and the list goes on. and on.
Now try balancing that with work , family time , triple dose of hifz blessing (routine review, last 5 days review and new hifz) , daily athkaars and sunnahs acts, keeping regular and on time in your salaah , and of course you gotta stay healthy and fit, eat healthy and exercise and catch some pretty sleep (IMPORTANT!!!!).
I gladly let go of some of my activities for now. My heart has been after me to give more of myself to my love for studying the Qur’aan. (you ! yes you who is reading this ! make a duah for me.. )
Right now I am supposed to be preparing a lesson for a tafseer class. I am just taking some things out of my mind, that’s how i do it; writing. I should get back.
I’ll make a more beneficial post soon enough inshaa Allah .
With love for the sake of Allah.. الرَّحْمَنِ – The Entirely Merciful ,
