My Lord's knowledge has sufficed me from asking and choosing
For my du'a and my agonising supplication is a witness to my poverty
For this secret (reason) I make supplication in times of ease and times of difficulty
I am a slave whose pride is in his poverty and obligation
O my Lord and my King You know my state
And what has settled in my heart of agonies and preoccupations
Save me with a gentleness from You, O Lord of Lords
Oh save me, Most Generous before I run out of my patience (with myself)
O One who is swift in sending aid I ask for aid that will arrive to me swiftly
It will defeat all difficulty and it will bring all that I hope for
O Near One Who answers and All-Knowing and All-Hearing
I have attained realization through my incapacity my submission and my brokenness
I am still standing by the door so please my Lord, have mercy on my standing
And in the valley of generosity, I am in i'tikaf
Allah, make my retreat here permanent and I'm abiding by good opinion (of You)
For it is my friend and ally
And it is the one that sits by me and keeps me company
All day and night
There is a need in my soul, O Allah
So please fulfil it, O Best of Fulfillers
And comfort my secret and my heart from its burning and its shrapnel
For joy and expansion is my state and my motto and my cover

In the name of Allah, Most Merciful and Most Gracious. All praise is due to Allah and Allah only.
Have you ever ponder on life's detailing? The things that has happened to you, the people you met did you ever thought of why their life coincide with you and why certain things are as they are right now and then. It is good sometime to take a little sweet time to do some reflection and try seeing what is it that Allah wants us to think. Though we might not get the full answer it's always nice to let that brain of ours get worked on a bit more than the usual.
I was at the petrol pump one evening when the adhan for Asar was called out on the radio. Little that I know I was about to witness something very minute but had an enormous impact on my heart. When the adhan ended, I saw the petrol pump worker, a Bangladeshi in his 50's (if I'm not mistaken) putting up his hands and make the after adhan du'a =') It was a very nice thing to see and it kind of gave me hope that yes, they are still good people in the crowd even when there is so much thing to be worried about.
