All The Ways Allah Says He Loves You

Poetry: All The Little "I Love You's" From Allah

Allah always finds a way to say, "I love you" in all the big and little ways. You just never noticed.


When the dawn breaks,

and the adhan states:

"Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Ash-hadu alla ilaha illallah,"

Allah gifts you a moment of peace,

before sweeping pastel arcs across the sky,

caressing your eyes with a glimpse of His bountiful beauty.

So much more of which thrives in Jannah,

witnessed only after you die.

Every breath before that moment is a blessing from the Lord,

little "I love you's" intertwined in every good day and bad,

from slight pauses in the rain,

to pay raises and school grades,

and friendships lost for lessons learned.

Complete with a warm hug of sajdah at night to soothe the day's hurt,

Allah calls 5 times a day, just to see how you are.

Yet if you miss one or all five of His message,

you don't feel guilty at all.

He sends a book for you to read,

so we can know each other better, and says,

"Tell me how you feel," or

"Tell me what you think."

Yet, you leave it on the night-stand,

or propped up in a display,

or hidden out of eye's sight,

like it's a burden that won't decay.

He sends you glad-tidings,

bright, laughter-filled days,

hoping you see His gold lining every one of your silver moments.

So you send a whisper of grateful atonement,

because He wants any and every reason

to propel you to success.

Yet, you ignore His knocks on the heart of your door,

throw out letters slid through the slot,

and lock the door,

hook the chain,

yell "Go away!" when His reminders came

just for you, in human form.

So after some time, He let trouble knock on your door,

because only in hardship do you realize,

how weak, helpless, and lost you are,

yet with such ease and acceptance of defeat,

you plot your own demise.

Sleeping pills, cut wrists, a rope hanging from the ceiling,

all because you desire relief...

when you could've fallen into the loving arms of sujud,

cupped your hands in the dua to catch tears,

had a proper conversation with your Lord,

who, for all these years you never tried to hear,

who, for all these years you never cared to see,

who, for all these years you never bothered to sense

all the little "I love you's" He sent.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
