Tonight I wed a thousand men And live a thousand faces Tonight I make a thousand excuses And sleep within the spaces Tonight I am a thousand colors And do not know the hue of any Tonight I smile wide...

The Young, Single, and the Restless
“And whosoever keeps his duty to Allah, Allah will appoint a way out for him, and will provide for him from (a quarter) whence he has no expectation.
And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, He will suffice him.
Lo! Allah brings His command to pass. Allah has set a measure for all things.”
(Qur’an 65:2)...oh yeah, and I got engaged too.

Iman and Understanding - Part II
Of these two ways of living we know that the life of Khabr is the one that leads to success in both worlds. The life of Nadhr may seem to benefit your Duniya, but in reality it will do nothing for your Akhirah because its materialist and superficial vision cannot see the Akhirah and does not take it into account.

So, given our difficulty in accurately knowing our ‘true’ motivations and beliefs, how do we really know if we have the one thing that is worth anything in Creation--our iman?

Why Does He Have To Be So Darn Scary?
There are reasons why Allah (SWT)’s Word motivates not only with love, but with fear as well.

Allah Listens To Those Who Praise Him
And as if he had been waiting for that moment, Shaitan whispered into my heart “Wait a minute, that sounds a little egotistical doesn’t it? What could this mean? Is our Allah, like the Judaic Yahweh described in the Old Testament a jealous or egotistical god? Why does He care about our praise and what is His nature?"

The body and its imperfect senses, and the mind and its imperfect reasoning and language are not meant to be our primary means and connection to spiritual ‘ilm—The ruh is. You understand the spiritual via the spiritual. He must be known on His terms. You know Him via the Qalb.
