Dulu i dont get this 11:11 quote..I was like….what is the big fuss? Okay its 11.11pm..so?
Being an inquiry spirited person, i googled it out..It has many version of the meaning.
1) 11:11 comes twice a day.. because everyone deserve’s a second chance. it symbolize chances in life.
2) A moment where people wish for something. and be granted?
3) Something related to Mayan’s calendar.Of the time the world ends.
Truth is…..i dont even care to bother. Seriously, Allah swt gave me 86,400 seconds to pray, any time of the day.
I’d like to share this from Yasmin Mogahed. She’s an amazing writer, mashaAllah
Think for a moment about what’s nearest to us. If asked this question, many would say it is the heart and the self that are nearest. But, Allah (swt) says:
“It was We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his nafs (self) makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein,” (Qur’an 50:16).
In this verse, Allah (swt) begins by showing us that He knows our struggles. There is comfort in knowing that someone sees our struggles. He knows what our own self calls us to. But He is closer. He is closer than our own self and what it calls for. He is closer than our jugular vein. And why the jugular? What is so striking about this part of us? The jugular vein is the most important vein that brings blood to the heart. If severed, we die almost immediately. It is literally our lifeline. But Allah (swt) is closer. Allah (swt) is closer than our own life, than our own Self, than our own nafs. And He is closer than the most important pathway to our heart.
Happy friday…Its a weekly ‘raya’ for us muslim 🙂
