At times, I feel that my prayers float in a vacuum of uncertainty. Not because I don’t believe Allah SWT has heard them, but because I believe I have not yet let them go. They are still tied to my heart with strings of doubt and confusion. And so begins my internal tug of war; a Lord that is ready to receive, a human that is afraid to deliver.
But that’s OK, because as long as the sky is above me, and earth is below me, my Creator has blessed me with another day, another chance to cut those strings and to let a part of me reach seven heavens above.
