As Salaamu Alaikum,
it’s so good to be back. I hope I’ve been missed, if not that’s cool too. It’s been maybe 3 or 4 days since my last posting. I had an unsettling weekend which was only beneficial in inspiring the previous post. It was great to use that negative energy to crank out my last rant. But, when I tried to return to the regular “lemme tell you what I know” blogging mode, I got stuck. My fingers refused to move, and my brain simply said, “forget you.” And that was that.
Alhamdulilah my brain fart has passed. I’m stationed back in front of my monitor, ignorantly large cup of tea in my hand, ready to go.
Since I’ve had a few days to reflect, I’ve come to a tremendous realization. That is that the Qur’an is the real deal. Not that I ever doubted it. It’s just that every time I find myself in a rut, I open it up, start reading, and Wa La! There, within its pages, lies a wealth of knowledge, a panacea. There is no ailment known to mankind that Allah hasn’t provided a cure for. The healing starts between the covers of His book.
Now I’m going to assume that my Muslim readers already know this. However if you aren’t Muslim and you happen to be reading, know that this is no hoax. I don’t pussyfoot around on my blog. I only speak from my own actualities. In my last post I complained of small-fry annoyances that irked me over the weekend. Let me inform you that I’ve been through hellish situations in comparison to those minor irritations. The wisdom I’ve found in the Qur’an has pulled me out of them all. If you don’t believe me try it for yourself. I challenge you to grab a copy of the Meaning of the Qur’an in your native language and read it. Approach it with an open mind, and sincere intentions on seeking the truth. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. You know what they say…”ain’t nothing like the real thing baby.”
On that note I’m going to end this. I’ve challenged you all, and I’d love to see who actually takes me up on it. Please do comment below or tweet me @UmmQamar and let me know your thoughts. You don’t stand to lose anything from reading a book.
