Be Patient

You must be patient. Even if the pains of waiting and wishing tire you, be patient. Even when long periods of time pass by and others are blessed with what they have been praying for while you still wait, be patient. For Allah does not waste the effort of the doers of good. He delays His response only to hear you call to Him more. Be patient. For what awaits you is sweeter than the bitterness of longing.

Nothing to Lose

She decided quite early on that she would have an arranged marriage. She saw those who married for love or after dating for a while eventually falling out of love once they were married.

From friends to family the more people that married for love seemed to be the first ones divorced in the first couple of years. This scared her. She heard them say ‘It just wasn’t the same anymore’ or ‘I don’t love her anymore’. For this reason, she decided she wouldn’t marry for something as temporary as love. She wanted to marry for commitment; to complete half of her deen.

She wanted to marry a righteous man that would accept her as his own and commit to her. Marriage for love and the sake of Allah seemed much more appealing to her. Someone that feared Allah with the best of manners is what she desired. She was smart, she knew eventually she would learn to love him and him to her. She understood during the times they fell out of love, it wouldn’t be the end of their marriage because it wasn’t for something as temporary as love they married for in the first place.

She acknowledged people fell in and out of love all the time and that she had everything to gain with an arranged marriage, in sha Allah nothing to lose.

Paraphrased from Her Faith

 

Bukan Hanya Tentang Aku

Hidup bukan hanya tentang aku, tetapi juga tentang kita. Hidup ini juga tentang orang tuamu, tentang keluargamu, tentang negerimu, tentang agamamu dan juga tentang orang-orang di sekitarmu. Buat apa kau ada, kalau keberadaanmu manfaatnya tidak dirasakan oleh mereka.

[Jamil Azzaini]

 

Tee Shirt

Tee Shirt – it’s my most favorite song on ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ soundtrack. So sweet, indeed! Well, enjoy the video! :)

In the morning when you wake up
I like to believe you are thinking of me
And when the sun comes through your window
I like to believe you’ve been dreaming of me

Dreaming

I know
‘Cause I’d spend half this morning
Thinking about the t-shirt you sleep in

I should know
‘Cause I’d spend all the whole day
Listening to your message I’m keeping
And never deleting

When I saw you,
Everyone knew
I liked the effect that you had on my eyes

But no one else heard
The weight of your words
Or felt the effect that they have on my mind

Falling

I know
‘Cause I’d spend half this morning
Thinking about the t-shirt you sleep in

I should know
‘Cause I’d spend all the whole day
Listening to your message I’m keeping
And never deleting

 

Pada Suatu Hari Nanti

Pada suatu hari nanti
Jasadku tak akan ada lagi
tapi dalam bait-bait sajak ini
kau takkan kurelakan sendiri

Pada suatu hari nanti
Suaraku tak terdengar lagi
Tapi di antara larik-larik sajak ini
Kau akan tetap kusiasati

Pada suatu hari nanti
Impianku pun tak dikenal lagi
Namun disela-sela huruf sajak ini
Kau takkan letih-letihnya kucari

[Sapardi Djoko Damono]
