I found out my ex got engaged.
First I got pissed, then I got hurt and upset, and then I started crying a little (maaaaybe a lot).
Not because I still had feelings for him, not because I was thinking of all the things that could be, but because Allah SWT answered my prayers. Within three days He lifted the veil that was covering my eyes for three years, and now I can move forward without having to look over my shoulder time and again.
“O Allah, send blessings upon Sayyidina Muhammad, the opening of what has been closed, and the Seal of what had gone before, and the helper of the Truth by the Truth, and the guide to Your Straight Path. Allah’s blessings be upon him and his family; may (this prayer) be equal to his immense position and grandeur.”
(What I was reading a hundred times a day before the news fell into my lap.)
Getting from a dark place to where the sun shines can be blinding and painful, but when you realize just how beautiful everything is, Allah, you’re never going back to that dark place.
Here’s to leaving the past to where it should be, and to live today as it should be lived, insyaAllah :)
