Starting Afresh!


My happiness knew no bounds!
My heart wouldn’t stop to pound!

I caught this lady and said, “I was in!”
My tears couldn’t be controlled within!

It was an unbelievable achievement!
It left me shaking in bewilderment!

My sins started to occur in my mind!
My thoughts were set to *rewind*!

I held that lady,  and told her that I was selected!
How else could I thank Allah (سبحانه وتعالى ), for my sinful soul He hadn’t rejected!

While in Ruku’, I burst into tears again,
When came Sujood, my consciousness, I couldn’t regain!

I thanked Him, I laughed, I smiled,
Like a little baby, that day I cried,

I couldn’t believe my fate,
I had been chosen, so what if late?

Such is the Mercy of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى ) beyond comprehension!
Human errs and errs again, yet He gives you attention!

It only takes sincere intention and heartfelt du’a,
He runs towards you, When you walk towards Allah (سبحانه وتعالى )!

“Oh Allah, please make this journey easy for me,
May I benefit from it and spread the message of Thee,

Ya Rabb, please forgive me and cleanse me of my sins!
I want to start afresh, as my journey towards Qur’an begins!

  1. Alhamdulilah, indeed it is a marvellous feeling of gratitude when Allah chooses you for a journey through the Quran. It is overwhelming when you realise that He choose you wishing khair for you.
    SubhanAllah! The eagerness you had to attend the class in spite of time difference i knew sure that Allah will reward you by choosing you.
    May Allah bless you and ease all your affairs of the dunya and akhira, may Allah grant pure intentions and steadfastness and ease in implementing the commands.


    1. Assalam O Alaikum Wa Rehmatullahe Wa Barakatuhu Sister Salma, Jazakillahu Khairan Katheeran for your kind duas and words. Aameen Ya Rabb! Love you fillah.
