They say life begins at forty. Which generally means, for most people, life should get better from forty onwards. I tend to agree. Although technically speaking we all know that life begins at zero, at birth that is. And the best part about life, regardless of a person's age, is as the adage goes: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
Alhamdulillah, am truly feeling humbled and utterly grateful for the wonderful bounties from Allah that have come my way today and more soon bi-iznillah.
And...let some people bark if they so wish. Let them bother me as they had tried last night, to hack my email and quite possibly, this blog too. Let it be. Let's leave it to the Lord. As far as I am concerned, the intangibles are more valuable. Not my words or writing or whatever - not the tangibles. What we have between us, roam in the intangible realm - the love, the thoughts and the warmth. All these are stored in our hearts. The heart-disk is intangibly eternal, unlike the hard disk which is breakable.
But don't worry folks, remember this, should something bad happen to this space or to me, do look out for a mirror or a duplicate of this Lisan al-Din with a similar name i.e. Lisan ad-Din or Lisan al-Deen, posted by a trustee, InshaAllah. Blogs aside, our spirits are intertwined anyway, so it does not matter really.
Let's continue to celebrate life, regardless of age or circumstances. And glorify Al-Hayy.
Have a fabulous Friday y'all.
Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad
'adadama yakun wama qad kan*
"O Allah, bestow Your prayers upon our Master Muhammad,
the beloved of the Most Compassionate
to the number of things that will be and that were."
* Salawat as taught by Habib Umar bin Hafiz
