Merging night and day


This glorious sunrise photo ought to be here. It's beautiful, Subhanallah! How fortunate some people are, they get to enjoy a great view of the sunrise AND sunset right in front of their house. It deserves a celebration! 

This saying by Oprah is apt:
"The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate."

But of course, as stated in the Quran, Allah says:
"If you are grateful,
I will certainly give you more."

Sunrise up north Peninsular Malaysia 

You may recall from yesterday's posting the brilliant sunset hues taken from the same location as the above sunrise photo. It's kinda hard to tell the difference between sunrise and sunset from both photos. 

I think life is sometimes like that. One look at a particular situation, it might appear the same. But it could be totally 180 degrees opposite, like night and day. We would only be able to tell the difference if we wait a little longer. We will then see if darkness takes over or if it would shine. Either way, we'll have to wait and see what the Creator is unfolding in a given situation. Either way, we'll know and we'll have to accept when the night enters the day because [God willing] the time will come for the day to enter the night. And through the passage of time, we will get a better picture of what He intends to reveal. In hindsight, we always understand things better.  

"He merges night into day and He merges day into night and He has full knowledge of the secrets of all hearts." - Q57:6

Indeed He knows the secrets of all hearts.

You and I read what is written, but each with a different intention and therefore each takes away a different meaning. And we read between the lines. But none of us could tell for sure the secret that lies between the lines, what more secrets that are hidden in the heart. To each, his own and only the Lord knows all about His own creations.

Good night from KL.

KL Tower is blue tonight.
She is probably singing
"When I am feeling blue
all I have to do is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue.
When you're close to me, I can feel your heart beat, I can hear you breathing near my ear.
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me
 gotta groovy kind of love "
