It' s been a looooong while....
So many things has happened since
insignificant to others but highly important to me
For the good ones I thank Allah the almighty
for the bad ones I thank Him too, for the wisdom that i gained.
Change. It's never easy. Human beings are creatures of habit, be it good habits or bad. My inner self is my biggest enemy in changing for the better. The old saying rings true; bad habits are easy to form and hard to lose. Somehow my nafs (i.e. syaitan) manages to mask them as something good or harmless.
"...Syaitan has lost hope that he will ever lead you astray in big things, so beware of him leading you astray in small things..."
-the Prophet's PBUH last sermon
It scares me how many of those small things I might be doing this very minute. Nevertheless, I thank Allah almighty for the wisdom He has granted me thus far.
