Hukum Waqt


O son, I wished to post something for you yesterday (friday) but yet again I was 'forced' by hukum waqt (the rules of time). Afterall, He is Time.

Hadith Qudsi 4:
Sons of Adam inveigh against [the vicissitudes of] Time, and I am Time, in My hand is the night and the day.

There is one munajat (petition) attributed to Ibn Atha'illah which I so love:
O Lord, enrich me
with your tadbir (management)
away from my own tadbir;
And with Your efforts,
absent from my own efforts;
And may You make me stand
at places where I will always be in need of You.

Ameen Allahumma ameen...
