C: Contemplation – Alphabet of Friendship

And I sit here,
Alone with my thoughts,
Tears filling my eyes,
Wondering, how the world will transform upon your dhuhoor,
Where will I be once you return?
Will I be by your side, am I truly worthy of this esteemed rank?
Or will my sins act as a barrier which will deprive me of this honour?
How can I turn my thoughts into active preparations for your return?
What role might I be able to play?
And how can I establish a ground to benefit from you?
I question myself and my intentions
in order to bring myself closer to you,
and may these sincere questions
lead me towards your light of guidance.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):
“The best of worship is actively anticipating for relief (the reappearance).”

رَسُولُ اَللَّهِ صَلَّى اَللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ

أَفْضَلُ اَلْعِبَادَةِ اِنْتِظَارُ اَلْفَرَجِ‏
