Journey to Allah limping and broken…

Imam AlShafi’ee said, “Journey to Allah limping and broken and don’t wait for wellness, because waiting for wellness is inability.”

What is the meaning of journey to Allah broken?

It means, for example, that you get up to pray but your prayer is still without focus, you recite the Quran but it is a broken recitation far from perfection…

Don’t worry, continue and seek out who will teach you to recite.

You begin to live your life in a way that is pleasing to Allah but at times, your soul and desires overpower you…

Continue journeying to Allah and don’t delay. Don’t wait for the right moment to turn towards Allah. The moment your heart is inclined to Allah, then go to Him Immediately.

Ibn AlQayyim said, “A person will continue to struggle with obedience until it becomes beloved to them. And so Allah will send angels that will inspire them and push them.

They will awaken him from his sleep for it, and from his gatherings for it. Allah said, “And those who strive in our path, we will certainly guide them to our path.”

Strive. Try. Endure. Persevere. And ask Allah.

However much a person comes closer to Allah, they are gifted to experience a sweetness that they taste in their wakefulness, in their sleep and in their food. Until they experience what Allah has promised, “We will give them a beautiful life.”

Oh Allah grant us the sweetness of iman.  ~ Waleed Basyouni

        Oh there’s this 5 photos 5 stories challenge…was wondering if you have time to do it, so I can nominate you insha’Allah? I’m on day three now and have to invite one other blogger. It’s totally okay if you don’t want to. I just thought of asking anyway. :)

    Salaamz!
    I really like the vibe of your blog. Masha’Allah it’s very informative and spiritual yet creative and fun.
    May Allah SWT reward you for writing such an uplifting article…it was really relevant to my life right now.
    Sometimes Shaytaan whispers so loudly- I’ve heard too many people give up and say ‘ well I’m going to hell anyway’.

    I love your posts, they’re written in a manner that does actually get to you. I hope Allah keeps you going!

  4. Saida says:

    This actually made me emotional reading it because I can relate so much to it. Sometimes when we slip up we feel like we have disappointed Allah and salah becomes hard but as you said it’s about not giving up. May Allah reward you immensely for your reminders and make them your entrance into jannah. Ameen

I would love to hear from you..
