Courage

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

How do you know if this love that you claim to have is really a part of you?

Has it been tested? How do you know if it's true? Is its return conditional? Or does it suffice to remain only inside of you?

Is love the thing that inspires change? Is it at the root of longing and hope? Does it beg for loyalty and defy the signs of impossibility?

Is love a thing that must be shared? Will it last in seclusion?
How do you know if the love that you claim to have is sincere? How do you know that it is true?

Sometimes I want to know.

Most times I'm too afraid of the answer that I never ask the question.

Subhan'Allah. I have the exact questions lingering in my mind too sis ...

"Do you think that you will enter the Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suffering and adversity and were so shaken in spirit that even the Apostle and those of faith who were with him cried: 'When (will come) the help of God?' Ah! Verily the help of God is (always) near!" [2:214]

Inspiration

"Be mindful of God, and God will protect you. Be mindful of God, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of God. If you seek help, seek help of God. Know that if the whole world were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that God had already prescribed for you. And if the whole world were to gather together to harm you, it would harm you only with something that God has already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the ink has dried."
--Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him]
