Stop And Smell The Roses

When the road ahead looks too long, when destination seems like a mirage, then look back.When uncertainty of the future worries you and stillness of the present tires you, look at the past.See how far Allah has brought you. You thought you couldn’t do it, but the days that went by testifies to a different story. You thought you were wading aimlessly in the dark, but He was guiding you at every step.

He is Al Lateef (The Subtle One). He takes care of you in a manner you don’t even have the ability to fathom. 

When you wander aimlessly in the street, not even aware of dodging a bullet or a car running you over, He is guiding every step that you take. Your guardian angels are always alert at your service, at the commands of your Creator to ensure your safety.Even when you do not care, He does.

Amidst the chaos of life, stop and smell your roses. Breathe into their scent, gaze at their beauty and recall how Allah created them out of nothing,then colored them into beautiful shades of red, blue and black- only for you.Thorns and petals- a rose comes with both.

Your roses.Your blessings.

…and if you were to count the blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them. Quran (14:34)
