welcoming silence, inviting gratitude

“So make remembrance of Me, and I will make remembrance of you. And show thanks to Me, and do not be ungrateful.” [Qur’an 2:152]

Our modern world craves the adrenaline rush of endless to-do lists and over-packed schedules blindly leading us from one engagement to the next.

Our lives set to soundtracks drowning out our discomfort of simply being.

Being present.

Finding stillness.

Falling into nature’s natural rhythms.

It’s time to hit reset.

Return to comfortable stillness amidst the anxious chaos.

Re-establishing all the senses natural connections with Allah’s creation.

Allow the eyes to reflect upon nature’s infinite beauty.

Invite the ears to experience the great outdoor symphony.

Inhale the sweetness of your blessed surroundings.

Feel how His Love is All-Encompassing.

Taste the sweetness of His bountiful gifts.

Remember Allah:

Subhan Allah.


Allahu Akbar.

Invite gratitude into your heart through daily submersion in silence.

Know that the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate surrounds you.

May the silent contemplation comfort your heart and strengthen the bond between you and the Divine.
