The Guiding Light

You’re the one that guided me.
When I was lost in the darkness of light.
When I was adrift on a sea of doubt and lost in hope.
You were my strength.

You were one who heard
my cry for help when
my words were held within.
You were the one who
calmed me when my world came crashing in.

You are the one I talked
to when no-one understood.
You’re the one that walked
with me in my darkest times.

You held my trembling hand.

You are the one who heard
and saw my pain and lifted
me up in my weakest
and painful times.

You made me who I am today.
Your blessings carved me
into a person with
a towering strength.

Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.

The Qur’an, Surah Ar-Ra’d (Chapter of the thunder) 13:28
