O Friends,
think not of this fast as a torture
for those who observe.
It is but a Divine sweetness in the belly.

Random thought

Sometimes we make ourselves believe something to be what it may not really be...Sort of a delusion.  We may be blinded by our desires...
The heart is the thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with Love. ~Hafiz ♥

Ignorance is God's prison. Knowing is God's palace. ~Rumi
My head is bursting with the joy of the unknown.
My heart is expanding a thousand fold.
~Rumi
Grateful that my 28th birthday was yesterday, another year that God let me live, Alhamdulillah.  I am too blessed to be stressed.

Saadi

How could I ever thank my Friend?
No thanks could ever begin to be worthy.
Every hair of my body is a gift from Him;
How could I thank Him for each hair?
Praise that lavish Lord forever
Who from nothing conjures all living beings!
Who could ever describe His goodness?
His infinite glory lays all praise waste.
Look, He has graced you a robe of splendor
From childhood's first cries to old age!
He made you pure in His own image; stay pure.
It is horrible to die blackened by sin.
Never let dust settle on your mirror's shining;
Let it once grow dull and it will never polish.
When you work in the world to earn your living
Do not, for one moment, rely on your own strength.
Self-worshiper, don't you understand anything yet?
It is God alone that gives your arms their power.
If, by your striving, you achieve something good,
Don't claim the credit all for yourself;
It is fate that decides who wins and who loses
And all success streams only from the grace of God.
In this world you never stand by your own strength;
It is the Invisible that sustains you every moment.
- Saadi

"O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) self-restraint."  ~ [Al-Baqarah, 2:183]
