A Pleasant Faith

I’m not very religious man nor am I a strict Muslim. I don’t go to Mosque frequently…

However, there are times when I’m anxious and full with worries. I’m a human, a father, a Syrian… I have debt… I’m getting older… A lot are depending on me… I fear the future and have concerns about surviving the presence.

During such times when I hear Azan (the call for prayer in Muslim countries), I find myself heading to the mosque… That simple mosque at the corner of the nearby street… I spend some time there praying… alone with my God… crying and nobody but God is witnessing my tears… The only open door where all others are (or seem to be) closed.

Knowing that He took care of me all over my life and He won’t leave me now, there is nothing to worry about. I’m with my Creator. The Creator of everything per a well-defined measure, the omniscient and most merciful.

Trust me, the pleasure and relief one feels then worth the entire world. Nothing else can compete with such moment.

  1. It’s important that we all find our place of peace and solace during rough times.

    Though I don’t understand the words of the sung piece on your audio file, I found it beautiful all the same. I can only imagine that the meaning is significant and comforting.

    • That’s part of our humanity, seeking soul’s peace. Hmm, the words of Azan (the audio file) are around glorifying the God and reminding of the main basic of Islam. Glad you like it.

      Thank you very much, Cindy. I miss your blog so much but i was very busy lately that i wasn’t able to catch with all my friends’ blogs

      • Thanks for sharing about Azan’s words, Mohamad.

        I completely understand about falling behind in reading blogs. Though I’m not so much busy like you, I have been a bit unwell lately, but no need for anyone to worry. My few posts lately have focused on dieting, and not my past topics. I’m having a tough time with other kinds of reflections.

      • You’re most welcome. I wish you all the best and health, Cindy. Please take care, and let me know if I can do anything for you. I’ll back to reading blogs again soon ๐Ÿ™‚
