Coming back to Allah – part I

Assalam alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

These are the days when I am wondering about “did it take one or two calamities to bring me back to Allah’s way?”. Though I am a born muslim and kind of prayed sincerely some days, missed out on prayer some days. Tried not to miss any Jumah Salah. I never really saw how much I was engrossed in worldly affairs until recently. And looking back, Alhamdulillah, as Allah promised, he gave a blow or two to my consciousness, before I came to realize the truth.

Ye shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in your personal selves. (3:186)

Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere. (2:155)

I am grateful to Almighty Allah(SWT) for lifting up the screen from my heart and showing me the way. I pray to Allah to keep me on his path my entire life and let me not go astray ever again. Ameen.

“O Allah! Let our hearts never go astray after You have guided us to the right path; bestow upon us your mercy. You are The Most Generous.”

The incidents which were happening one after the another, I perceived them as calamities in my life. All of a sudden, I realized these are tests Allah is giving me, and my only recourse is to seek Allah and get closer to Allah.

I yearn to change my lifestyle to include more ibadah, more dhikr, more sunnah Alhamdulillah. I am working towards it and Insha’Allah Allah(SWT) will guide me.
