Each day is a gift

Each new day is a door to a new world
(The Words, p. 280)

Each new day is a beautiful gift from God; let us learn to accept the gift; let us open it with great joy and with deep appreciation, trusting that the door of each new day opens for us to keep on learning; believing that only the Giver of life can teach us the true meaning of life.

Love needs no words

One of the hardest part of being strong independent striving mums is no one ask us if we are ok, but the most sweetest part is we always love our children intensely as we feel being loved deeply by them; this love is an unexplained reflection of God’s unconditional love, this love is an irreplaceable love; this love is more than just a feeling as it is strength; this love is a miracle that dwells in the invisible as it is love till eternity that needs no words..

“The Quran is the sun that never sets; it’s a special mercy, a true guide; a healer; the source of nourishment and strength”-Risale i Nur
Seeking serenity; learning to be compassionately strong and courageously resilient. Truly our Lord is with us, He will guide us through.

You have escaped the cage

'You have escaped the cage;
your wings are stretched out;
now fly; sing like the birds sing,
not worrying about who hears or what others think'-Rumi
Truly my Lord is with me, He will guide me through (Q26:62).

Drawing insightful lessons of life

Drawing insightful lessons of life from the Quran in the Risale i Nur as we saw how the fig and olive survived on snowy grounds during our winter season outings in Jordan....
Almighty God reveals numerous mysteries and significant points through oaths in the Quran and one of the amazing oaths is “By the fig and the olive,”(95:1) which is as follows: By swearing by the fig and the olive, Almighty God calls to mind the immensity of His power and the perfection of His mercy and His extensive bounties, in order to redirect those people who are heading for the lowest of the low, showing that they may progress spiritually, through thanks, reflection, belief, and good works as far as the highest of the high. The reason for specifying the fig and the olive is that as fruits they are most blessed and beneficial, and their creation comprises many notable things and bounties. For the olive is utilized for illumination and food, and is a basic commodity in social and commercial life. The fig is the same; it displays in its creation a miracle of power by encapsulating in its minuscule seed all the members of the huge fig-tree, and is a divine bounty both in its being a food, and its uses, and contrary to other fruits its continuity, and many other advantages. It calls all this to mind with the oath and instructs man to draw lessons from them so as to believe and perform good works, and not to fall to the lowest of the low (The Letters, p. 449).

Essence of mercy

“We should try to always see the trace, face and essence of mercy in things which will cause us not to complain, but to offer thanks” (The Flashes, p. 357).
Autumn age is not a barrier to shine on for God in this world; in eternity His beloved ones who receive the pleasures from the bounties in paradise will remain young forever……

watch with serenity

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain; and could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy; and you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields; and you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief”- Kahlil Gibran — in Sør-Trøndelag.

"Do not despair of God's mercy" (Q39:53).

Being a mother, a student, a writer, an educator and an entrepreneur are truly challenging but rewarding experiences for me and I am still learning. All we need is to take great courage to let go the past that hurts while nurturing great hope to face the present that heals. "Do not despair of God's mercy" (Q39:53).
