There’s a reason Jannah is not in her hands,
but under her feet.
For if it was in her palms, her selfless love would have
handed it to you despite your deserving.
Alas, it is the ground that bears her entire weight. That is
where heaven lies, and if you wish to achieve it- carry her
Wipe her tears.
Give her hope.
Kiss her hands.
Tell her you love her,
in every tongue you speak.
Clean for her.
Cook for her.
Strive for her.
Do not simply hold her hand, for that is not where heaven lies.
Bare her burdens.
You may never come close to the unconditional manner and love in which she bared yours-
But you may earn the key to the gardens of eternal bliss locked beneath her feet.
Aisha bint Al-Siddiq [RA] asked, “what if I knew which night Laylatul Qadr was, then what should I say in it?”
Prophet [saw] said, “Say:
O Allah, You are all forgiving, and you love to forgive therefore forgive me.
[Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah]
Allahumma innaka afuwwun tuhibbul afwa fa’fu anniii
الراحة في الجنة
Rest is found in heaven
