THE RACE TOWARDS RIGHTEOUSNESS

Another wasted day,
Another torn out page,
Another sleepless night,
overthinking about life.

The things we should have
done better and the things we
should have never ever…

Everyday we are afraid of not
being in the race, and we see
our lives like it’s been woven
in an open web of lace.

We think only of our achievements
in life, which in a blink can
become nothing.

We compare our lives with others
who look like they have it all.
But if only we could see that
most of them are trapped
and enthralled.

The race towards righteousness
have been forgotten.
We now compare rather
than compete…

Allaah says:

[Quran 5:48] Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with God’s revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had God willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To God is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.
