Dear Patient One,

You are strong and empowering.
You strive to make the world a better place.
Society sees you as a just another individual,
doing your part in this world.
You have struggled and grieved.
But, does that stop you?
Everyday you wake up with a smile on your face
because spreading happiness makes you feel warm inside.
Take a second and breathe.
You are now fighting your own battle.
Turn.
Turn yourself to your Lord.
He is the most Merciful.
He knows and understands your worries.
But have patience,
For it is key.
Have Tawakkul.
Trust in the One who knows what is in the heavens and the earth.
Lead by example.
And don’t fall into hypocrisy.
Be the person to look back at your life and smile.
Connect with your Creator,
Create peace,
And take care of your parents.
Jannah is under your mother’s feet.
Dear Patient One,
Everyone has ups and downs.
It is the courageous one who conquers!
