It’s Hard

The fatigue and exhaustion seeps into your pores, your feet are numb, your hands are aching, your head is throbbing and feelings of stress and anxiety manage to creep in. As a result sometimes all you really want to do is slip under the covers of your bed, switch the air conditioner on, shut your eyes and pretend the world around you doesn’t exist for a year or two.


You can’t. Not because you’re physically incapable of doing so but because you’re a student of knowledge who now knows the gravity of this life and your purpose in it. This life is, Darul ‘Amal – the home of work and action. The life after is, Darul Jazaa – the home of recompense and reward. Striving here leads to success in the hereafter, i.e Jannah.
