10th Muharram 1439 H
Today’s a day to wake up and do something different. It’s a day to face the sea. It’s a day to get rid of your enemy. Not your eternal enemy, you can’t get rid of him. You have to fight him until death. It’s time to get rid of the enemy within you. Your bad habits that limit you. That stop you from getting closer to Allah. Imagine you are at the sea shore and imagine your bad habits are behind you, gaining on you, wanting to overpower you and you are running away from them. Turn to Allah, to help you conquer them. To cross the sea and put an ocean between you and them, with Allah’s help. Knowing that he is Al Samee’ Al Baseer ( The all Hearing, The all seeing). He is watching you after you have asked Him to help you. He could have split the sea for Moosa alayhi salam without him having to do anything. But He wanted him to do a small action with faith and determination. He is waiting for us to make that change in ourselves, to rid ourselves off laziness and He by His mercy will bless us and help us.
Let’s run everyday and ask Allah to save us. The following dua comes to mind.
يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّوْمُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ أَسْتَغِيْثُ، أَصْلِحْ لِيْ شَأْنِيْ كُلَّهُ وَلاَ تَكِلْنِيْ إِلَى نَفْسِيْ طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ.
‘O Ever Living, O Self-Subsisting and Supporter of all, by Your mercy I seek assistance, rectify for me all of my affairs and do not leave me to myself, even for the blink of an eye.’
