I am alive, striving
I wonder if I will earn Allah's ultimate pleasure
I hear Allah's perfection amidst much futile noise
I see inimitable beauty tainted with the grotesque
I want to live the Qur'aan and Sunnah on this earth
I dream of basking in Allah's countenance in Jennat-il-Firdaus
I worry about my weaknesses and failings
I feel desperate for Knowledge and improvement
I am believing, hoping.
