Care of Allah
In the sentence of life, the devil may be a comma, but never let him be the full stop.
When Allah ordains, He sustains.
I’ve received many E-mails this past month on losing hope in recovery. People want to know is there any hope in breaking the cycle of ED? Some want to know if Allah will ever forgive them for the pain their ED causes to others and others want to know if Allah is with them or not. Sometimes you can not overcome the Demon of Eating Disorder on your own…you can not conquer your behaviours on your own…you can’t overcome the Demon by your own strength…but Allah can! Allah will help you overcome the powerful struggles of your life. . Allah created the entire universe, all the stars, the galaxies, the sun…everything! He knows the 100 trillion times 100 trillion number of stars all by name. Pray day and night for the help you need. Allah will help you. Don’t lose heart. You will slip and fall but get back up, pray for forgiveness and ask Allah to cut off all the influences of Demon from your life. I found two great poems I want to share this week. They tell us about hope in Allah and care of Allah towards us.
Never give the devil a ride He will always want to drive.
Where there is Allah there is hope
I present myself before You swt on bended knee
I am ashamed of what You will see
All my faults clearly exposed
Dear Lord,You so love to forgive
No better sound than a repenter who pleads
No sweeter sight than the bitter tears of regret
Oh You who turns hearts, make me steadfast in obedience to You
No matter how sinful and guilt-ridden I may be
Please keep me kneeling down to Thee
Holding firmly onto the rope
For where there is Allah there is always hope…
Oh Allah ! I told You I’m in pain
