All night, a man called “Allah”
Until his lips were bleeding.
Then the Devil said, “Hey! Mr Gullible!
How comes you’ve been calling all night
And never once heard Allah say, “Here, I am”?
You call out so earnestly and, in reply, what?
I’ll tell you what. Nothing!”

The man suddenly felt empty and abandoned.
Depressed, he threw himself on the ground
And fell into a deep sleep.
In a dream, he met Abraham, who asked,
“Why are you regretting praising Allah?”

The man said, “ I called and called
But Allah never replied, “Here I am.”
Abraham explained, “Allah has said,
“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.
In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”
Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am.”

Yahan Allah ki maan lo, aage apni marzi kar lena. Hamesha ki zindagi mein aur karna hee kya hai?

Sabahat Abdul Qadeer

Translation: Live life according to Allah here; you can have your way in the hereafter. After all, what else is there to do in a never ending life?

This world is like a mountain. Your echo depends on you. If you scream good things, the world will give it back. If you scream bad things, the world will give it back. Even if someone says badly about you, speak well about him. Change your heart to change the world.

I look back and half of Ramadan is over in the blink of an eye. Before I know I’ll be saying that about my entire life.

Life is a miracle,

I have been walking in it since I met you, he thought.

I care,” he said in a trembling voice. “I care so much that I do not know how to tell you without it seeming inconsequential compared to how I feel. Even if I am distant at times and seem as if I do not want to be with you, it is only because this scares me, too.

They asked a wise man: Why don’t we ever hear you backbiting and slandering?

He said: I’m still not happy with myself to start with others.
