A Du’a to Allah

Your Mercy enlightened my soul;

I found my purpose, and my reason,

You are my treasure, my light and my hope,

My tears of anguish, bring sweetness to my sorrows,

I fear Ya Allah, happiness in this world, may take me away from Your remembrance,

I seek struggle, only to call out to Your Mercy,

My tears for You, are like the diamonds to my treasure,

Your appearance is unknown to me, yet I have already felt so much of your beauty,

My soul was starving without Your Remembrance, & Your Mercy only filled it with sweetness, and brought me back to life,

You are the happiness of my soul, & it was the hearing of Your Mercy & Love that set it alight,

My attachment to this Duniya is my longing & yearning to

reach close proximity to You,

For if, by Your mercy I enter Jannah , I would reminisce on the times I felt your beauty through my worship, even when you were veiled from our eyes,

The vain pleasures of this Duniya are only temporary and a deception, & my struggle against them with Your remembrance,


& to feel the coolness in my soul, could never amount to what the pleasure I turned away from could give,


Even in my darkest hours, You make life beautiful just by knowing You are there,

You make my heart smile, which if all the treasures of this world were given to me, it would never have that effect,


You are my strength, my cure and my delight,


My longing to see Your face, is my Jannah in this world, nothing can bring harm to it, or take it away but by my disobedience to You,


Help me to remain firm Ya Allah on the Sirat-Al-Mustaqeem, & hold strong to Your rope, for if I am detached from You,


I will lose my reason to live, & I will lose my Jannah that I carry with me,

Help me to remain sincere & earn nothing but Your pleasure,


My desire is only to be one of your Beloved..
