It was dark and bleak, that night
when I fell on my knees and prayed.
My partner was violently ill, and I was
lost and alone, trying to help him through it.
I prayed to Allah the Most High and asked
Him to send me a sign that my partner and
I should be together - too many people had
been trying to break us apart and I was confused.
Allah the Most Merciful sent my partner an illness
that was most severe, and He sent me strength.
He sent me the patience to deal with it and the love
that I needed to help my partner through everything.
I called to you, oh Allah, and you answered me. Your
beautiful voice penetrated the darkness and brought
me light, patience and hope that I had not felt in many
a year - You showed me Your mercy and love, oh Allah.
So now I know that you have blessed my marriage, and
that you truly are the Most Gracious. I thank you for your
ever-forgiving nature and your unconditional love, and I
know now that I can call upon you to guide me always.
