Right Now …
Right now …
Someone is in profound pain, and a few months from now, they’ll be thriving like never before. They just can’t see it from where they’re at.
Someone you haven’t met yet is already dreaming of adoring you.
A farmer is looking at his organic crops and whispering, “Nourish them.”
Someone wants to kiss you, to hold you, to make tea for you.
Someone is willing to lend you money, wants to know what your favourite food is, and treat you to a night out.
Someone in your orbit has something immensely valuable to give you – for free.
Something is being invented this year that will change how your generation lives, communicates, heals and passes on.
Someone is sat making dua for the Ummah. Others have mentioned you and me and others you know by name in their supplications and prayers.
Millions of children are assuming that everything is amazing and will always be that way.
Someone who is craving to be partnered, to be acknowledged, to ARRIVE, will get precisely what they want – and even more. And because that gift will be so fantastical in its reach and sweetness, it will quite magically alter their memory of angsty longing and render it all “so worth the wait.”
Someone has recently cracked open their joyous, genuine nature because they did the hard work of hauling years of oppression off of their psyche.
Someone just this second wished for world peace, in earnest.
Someone is fighting the fight, so that you don’t have to.
Some civil servant is making sure that you get your mail, and your garbage is picked up, that the trains are running on time, and that you are generally safe.
Someone is dedicating their days to protecting your civil liberties and clean drinking water.
Someone is regaining their sanity.
Someone is genuinely forgiving the seemingly unforgivable.
Someone is curing the seemingly incurable.
You. Me. Some. One. Now. Think …
Do shukr for what we have, for truly Allāh (ﷻ) is enough for us.
