    I think its time to bring it back!


    Did you ever get that feeling...after giving a good reminder, a brief talk, after having written a commendable piece, or having just given simple advice to anyone...then suddenly it hits you...you look back at what you've said...and then time for a reality check..."i don't even do some of the things i've just spoken about...so am i now a hypocrite?" So you continue to praise Allah that no one can open the curtains of your life ...see your faults..time to keep silent...isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling...when you were online or dealt with someone in "real" life...speaking to that person...then you noticing that they actually look up to you...believing that you're worthy...maybe somewhat of a pious soul...but then you regrettably look at yourself...knowing what and who you "really" are! Makes you stop for a second...your heart feels weird at that very moment...time to keep away from people...isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling...when you've wronged someone...and you know you have...all the ahadith come in mind...about going back and apologizing...about cutting relations for more than three days...about being the bigger and better person in a conflict..yet its so hard...because you think that if you surrender to this...this ungrateful person...then this can only mean that its a sign of weakness...and so the shaytan wins...again...hmm...time for me to run away from these kind of situations...isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling...when you begin to look at your life...CLEARLY...after days and days of blurred vision...and you realize that your faith has fallen...dropped...sunken...almost feels like living death...you look around you...the books...the tapes/cd's...papers...knowledge...your small remembrance book...the way you started...the you way you fought...the way you struggle to reach where you are...and now look...just look at what i've become...time to go to sleep...just sleep...to forget...isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling...a long time ago...when you held the quran...you felt each and every single word as you read them...POWERFUL on the heart... werent they? you read it...on your bed...and it made you cry...and you felt as though you never wanted to be bothered...just you and Allah...and when Allah spoke of the believers...you stopped...pulled the quran back...you started to imagine...you thought maybe one day you would be one of them...those who live in jannah...Subhanna Allah...when you heard a hadith...you somehow memorized it and kept reciting it back...conveyed it to almost everyone who crossed your path...as if you just heard the best announcement...those days were special...and you yearn for them now...it was all about Allah then...nothing else...time for us to bring back that feeling...that AMAZING feeling...isn't it?

    wait...i'm not done...

    Did you ever get the feeling while prostrating...lost in your love and humility for Allah...just wishing in your heart...that Allah would take your life...right there and then...Time to bring back that feeling!! isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling...when going early to the mosque felt good?? when you sat in the first row and after the prayer...you got to see everyone behind you and you knew you beat them?? Time to bring back that feeling!! isn't it?


    Did you ever get that feeling...when you used to do everything for Allah...everything...you just didn't care about people...even when you would post a thread like this?? TIME TO BRING BACK THAT FEELING?? isn't it?

    Did you ever get that feeling....when you felt Allah watching you...YOU FELT IT...YOU FELT HIM WATCHING YOU....he was there with you...that second...somehow your head just went down...maybe out of humility...you don't know what made it go that way....you knew...that he was the only one that guided you...watched over you...and helped you. That still hasn't changed.

    Assalamua'laaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

    It has been a while since I last posted here. I missed TTI! SubhanaAllaah.

    JazakaAllaahu khaayr brother for the nice thread. Nearly moved me to tears as it is EXACTLY what I can feel. . at times.

    May Allaah guide us all, Ameen.

    Mashallah, sooo beautiful and truthfull words. I got tears in my eyes when I was reeding, because I think and feel the same, that how many times we forget that we should do everything for the sake of Allah and His pleasure, even if we smile to someone that we love, we should do for the sake of Allah.

    May Allah reword you dear brother for sharing with us.:tti_sister:
