Laylat al-Nisf min Sha`ban

It’s one of those nights,
You’ll grant our longing and answer our plights.

It’s one of those nights,
I know You are the All-Hearing through my temporal world’s fights.

And it’s one of those nights,
I know I’m undeserving,
but You are the All-Forgiving

Hence, I’m asking,
For You to keep me in the path of Your Light.

For it’s one of those nights,
I yearn and seek the love and mercy of the Almight.

May our prayers be answered by The All-Giving, our Creator tonight.

Amin.

Way too often

Too often, we chose the easier road in comforting someone’s loss and grief.

Too often,we chose the easier road to comfort our desires when we claim to be the people of belief.

Too often, we chose our worldly success when we knew that our ends are similarly at the ground beneath.

For it’s way too often, that we forgot about our time here, that is short lived.
