Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,
This picture was captured a few days ago when I was out with a sister to catch the sunset. I had been down in the dumps for the past few weeks so the sister suggested that she take me for a drive to catch sunset at the beach. Initially I thought that I would be tongue tied considering how I had been before. I become lost for words when I’m with her because she’s one of those whom I have such great respect for and I don’t want to say something stupid in front of her.. but she’s really down to earth despite being a well respected lady who has done so much for the community.
Our view was blocked by the rocks so the sister suggested that we climb on it to get a good spot. And true enough, despite the overcast clouds and gloomy weather that day, we managed to capture a glimpse of wonderment when the sun slowly started to set just as we sat nicely on the rocks. Allahu Akbar!
Maghrib came and we prayed on the beach together. The sound of waves crashing on the rocks and cool breeze enveloping us while we pray was one of the things that gave me the sense of tranquility and peace.
Anyway, I feel slightly rejuvenated after that night and am glad that I spent some time talking to the sister. It’s comforting to know that if I need talk to someone, there’s always one who will be there al-Hamdulillah.. But of course most importantly, Allah is always there for us when we need him 🙂
