Sleight of hand

Recommended Posts

This world a trick 
Believe not what you see
But what's deep within 
Satan plays his sleight of hand 
Whispering the wrong direction 
And we all follow him
As if our minds are programmed 
But o mind listen to 
Your friend the heart 
Hidden away yet so intimate 
It's the paradox we can't grasp
So we reach for the immediate 
Like blind people with canes 
but O God 
Scratch my eyes, but heal my heart
It's all I need, not these physical vestiges
Not this useless tongue 
That wags all day
Not this quacking mouth
I even labour as I write 
Please God guide me aright

    • Salam. If you have one year before you start your Masters degree program, then there is no need to leave your family to go study Islam. Stay with your family and do as much independent study about Islam as you can. Do research on your own by reading and studying. After you achieve your Masters degree, inShaAllah you can take a break and reassess your situation to decide whether you want to take hawzah classes or other educational opportunities or if you need to work to pay off debts for yourself or your family.  
    • I have come to know when it comes to spirituality (sofism)there is nothing like Sunni Shia.  They are all same that true servant's and lovers of Allah.
