I’m not even sure if I can find the right words to speak about my condition. My heart feels like bursting. It feels like its filled with so much love that its just expanding and my chest might just be too small for it. SubhanAllah!
What a beautiful night! What a beautiful gathering! What beautiful voices! What a beautiful atmosphere! ALLAH!
I thank Allah so much for everything He has given me, for making it easy for me to attend all these blessed majalis where He is mentioned endlessly, where His Beloved is being praised and remembered, where those who loves Him and those whom He loves are in attendance. MasyaAllah…
‘Al-mar-u ma’a man ahabbah’
A person is with whom he loves.
Ya Allah, I know my love for the Prophet SAW is defective & inadequate, what more my love for You. But I love these blessed people – Habib Umar, Shaykh Khalil, Shaykh Yahya, Shaykh Afeefuddin, Ustaz TM Fouzy, and all those who were present here tonight. I love them and if I can’t be with the Prophet SAW, let me be with these people because they will be with the Prophet SAW because of their immense love for him SAW and through them, I can be with him SAW too insyaAllah!
Kak Muna, darling Mizah, Siswand, Jumi, Nisaa, Mahirah, Teeya … It was great to see familiar glowing faces tonight. MasyaAllah.. May Allah bring us together in similar gatherings again in the future, and like what Shaykh Afeefuddin prayed for, to be in a gathering with the Prophet SAW. :)
Uhibbukum filLah. <3
After the event, I was at the middle of the carpark with my brother talking excitedly when suddenly Shaykh Khalil walked towards us. For God-knows-what reason, I bolted in the other direction. My heart was beating so fast. After that my brother caught up with me & told me that Shaykh Khalil said to him, “I came here to give salaam and your sister ran away. Send her my salaam.”
OMG! Seriously, I felt so bad that I just had to apologise to him before he leaves. Finally, an opportunity came up and my brother & I went up to him and I apologised for running away. Haha. I SPOKE TO SHAYKH KHALIL! And he made dua for my brother & I. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. This blessed man, whom I’ve been talking about on my blog, counting down the days since he left Singapore last year, and here he is, in front of me, and not just that, I was on the receiving end of his words! SubhanAllah..
Allah as-Sattar! Allah ya Kareem! He knows I’m not deserving to be amongst such people.. I’m so grateful for his dua, for Habib Umar’s dua, for Shaykh Afeefuddin’s dua. MasyaAllah.. Allah knows how many obstructions there are for my dua’s to reach Him. I’m so grateful, so so grateful.
How amazing it is to have a conversation with a lover of the Prophet SAW. How much more amazing would it be to have one with the Beloved himself! Allah.. My stomach is turning just thinking about it.
Its late. I should go. For those who have not managed to meet Habib Umar since he arrived, please try to attend whatever remaining programmes he has left.
Just like last year, I will be going through withdrawal symptoms once again when they leave Singapore. :( What a blessed addiction though..
