Why Have I Changed So Much?

I’m not an expert but, have you ever felt like a trait of your personality suddenly changed or even disappeared? Well if so, I just want to remind you that it’s absolutely fine and there’s no reason to worry. Life is all about change, isn’t it? Don’t you have an old friend who you used to be so close to but now you barely talk to each other anymore because you just feel like you’ve grown apart? Friends come and go, because thoughts and feelings come and go… That’s just how your heart is. It flips and flops all the time. And that’s how you change.

It’s not a bad thing to change. Seriously, you can’t help it, right? So if you felt like you have changed into something that is bad (according to you), don’t forget the fact that you will always change. So, you always have a chance to change into something better or maybe even the same as before, Allahua’lam. And you must never forget… Everything that happens is what’s supposed to happen. Everything is in the Hands of Allah. Allah is The One who wills it to change and nothing changes except that Allah wills it. And Allah is Most Knowing and Most Wise.

So pray to Allah to become someone loved by Him, do things that Allah loves, and don’t worry. Allah knows what you’re going through more than you do.

Drop everything

Art = Wonder = Science

“I have a friend who’s an artist and he’s sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well. He’ll hold up a flower and say. “Look how beautiful it is,“ and I’ll agree, I think. And he says – “ you see, I as an artist can see how beautiful this is, but you as a scientist, oh, take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing.“ And I think that he’s kind of nutty.

First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me, too, I believe, although I might not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is, but I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside which also have a beauty. I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension of one centimeter, there is also beauty at a smaller dimension, the inner structure. Also the processes, the fact that the colors in the flower are evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting – it means that insects can see the color.

It adds a question: Does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower form? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which a science knowledge only adds to the excitement and mystery and the awe of a flower.

It only adds; I don’t understand how it subtracts.“
– Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988)

Do you have time?

Sad,
Anger,
Blind,
Deaf,
Numb.

Question,
Search,
Look,
Hear,
Feel.

Do you wonder how wide the universe is
Did you hear the birds chirping at dawn
Do you remember the last time you’ve seen your favorite flower
Are there trees that are so tall you think if they’d grow even more, they’d be in the clouds?

Now can you inhale some oxygen
Can you taste the pureness of water
Can you wear your favorite clothing
Can you hug your mother after her busy day?

Concious, my brother! So many people are not given the chance to do these anymore. But don’t be sad! Because they had their time. But you, you still have time.
Time starts, time ends. Can you tell me, when will time end? I’d say Allah knows, while we know not.

Concious, my brother! No time deserves to be wasted. It may end any second of any minute of any hour of any day.

And don’t be sad! Are you sad of the life Allah has given to you? Allah, The Just of All Judges, gives you what is best. Nothing is better than Allah’s will. Don’t you love how Allah made the clouds look like?

And don’t be angry! Are you angry at the life Allah gave you? Are you angry of your compassionate Creator? Subhanallah, He is the same Creator of your mother and father.

A man once came to the Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) for some Nasiha. The man said, “Give me some advice, Oh Rasulullah”. The Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said “Don’t get angry”. The man said, “Oh Rasulullah, give me some more advice.” The Prophet (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Don’t get angry”. The man said to give him some more advice, and Rasulullah (salAllāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said for a third time, “Don’t get angry”.

Concious, my brother! Everything around you is Allah’s rahmat. Be it what you like and what you dislike.
“But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” [QS. Al-Baqarah/2 : 216]

Concious, my brother! Only in the remembrance of Allah will the heart be assured. So why be angry and sad? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

“It is Allah who has sent down the Book in truth and [also] the balance. And what will make you perceive? Perhaps the Hour is near.” [QS. Ash-Shuraa/42 : 17]

All praise is due to Allah, The Entirely Merciful, The Especially Merciful.


“The biggest advantage in the world is to occupy yourself every time with the most important and beneficial for the hereafter. How can you call it rational to sell Jannah and it’s enjoyment for worldly pleasure that is only temporary?” – Ibnu Qayyim
