In a world made grey
In a world made dull
When I remember You,
When I place myself last
And I place You first,
Lo, I am nourished with Your Love,
Lo, I am the bright flame in the forest!
Sincerity. Sincerity is difficult to attain, and nigh impossible to maintain without His constant guidance. And to place yourself last, and God first? That is certainly no walk in the park. It is the end of the journey, it is the highest goal of servanthood. And like all quests, It will be challenged and tested to a degree that we cannot imagine.
The Test. But however far we may progress (or not), one thing is certain. And that is God will not test us more than we can bear. So why is it then that I, your friendly sinner, continues to fail wretchedly with his little burdens?
Faith. The answer is simple, I know – It is staring me in the mirror. Because I do not know myself as well as God does. Thus, it is my constant craving to get to know myself better, this human being, this sinner in whom God appears to have such faith in.
If only I have more faith in Him. No doubt, He will show me, me. And I will begin to know Him as how He wishes to be known to His beloved servants.
Pray for me, sunshine.

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
