the sun is so beautiful in the early morning. it does something to the trees that you don’t see any other time of the day. i think we all want the same thing: a quiet peace. maybe just even a single moment of it. to close our eyes and just be okay.
for even a single second, to not feel worried about something, sad about something. to not crave something we don’t–or can’t–have. just to be there, okay. still. silent. on the inside. maybe that’s what’s so beautiful about this time of the day: the stillness.
and the hope that maybe this day will be different.
(yasmin mogahed, reclaim your heart, page 159.)
*may we find stillness in our solah; khusyu'. Allahumma ameen.
