Life has gotten really hard for me lately and sometimes I feel as I am losing control. School has taken over my life and I dont even know what fun is anymore. If you knew me before, you would notice the difference. Iam anxious and uptight all the time from the stress of school. However, I find comfort in reading the hadith. As you may know Im struggling with some things in islam right now. However, I have been handling it the wrong way. I read the blogs of my fellow muslimahs and I think wow they make it look easy. I need to have the attititude if they can do I can do it too. I need to stop fighting all the things about this wonderful and complete religion and embrace it. This will be hard for me but insha'allah I will work hard at this. Narrated by Abu Musa: The Prophet said, "The example of guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is like abundant rain falling on the earth, some of which was fertile soil that absorbed rain water and brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. (And) another portion of it was hard and held the rain water and Allah benefited the people with it and they utilized it for drinking, making their animals drink from it and for irrigation of the land for cultivation. (And) a portion of it was barren which could neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation (then that land gave no benefits). The first is the example of the person who comprehends Allah's religion and gets benefit (from the knowledge) which Allah has revealed through me (the Prophets and learns and then teaches others. The last example is that of a person who does not care for it and does not take Allah'sguidance revealed through me (He is like that barren land.)" This hadith was striking to me!! Sometimes I read quran or hadith and I feel as if Allah is speaking to me directly. To all my sisters out there who find themselves overwhelmed take solace in this amazing hadith revealed for our beloved prophet (please and blessing upon him). And sisters, inshallah I will prepare to become a full time hijabi January 1,2009. Please make duas for me.
