Long for nothing


For several days I was running around looking for my missing tasbih. Was feeling totally despondent for my world lost its momentum. So I was longing for it until I found it, by chance or rather by His grace. Alhamdulillah. That's typical of us, we lose something, we want it back, otherwise, we want a new replacement. We wish for this and long for that.

But Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani said:
O you who have wishes, make every effort to come to have no wishes! One of the people of Allah was once asked: "What do you long for?" He replied: "To long for nothing." Everything depends on feeling satisfaction with the divine decree, giving up the very act of wanting and casting down the heart in the hands of its Transformer.

O Allah, include us among the Muslims who have thrown themselves prostrate in the Hand of Your destiny and give us in this world good and in the hereafter good and protect us from the torment of the Fire!

Ameen Allahumma ameen.
