What I want to do is write. Write and escape. Create a little bubble of characters.

Or even better, read. Read and get lost into their lives. Fill myself up with pointless banter and content my heart with escapism.


But truthfully?

I just want to be close with Allah SWT again. I feel the yearning for the Qur'an but there's something deep inside me stopping the words from touching my heart.


I'm familiar with that feeling Sad

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

kindred here.


keep reading. and read translation and listen/read tafsir. but keep reading. hang i n there!

Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

Asalaamu Alaikum Lioness. Welcome to The Revival. You can use the blog section and write all you like and you will have people responding back to you instead of thinking you're characters are responding to you when they're really not lol.

Try reading the Quran or listening to someone else recite it after Fajr and before you go to bed each day. Take some time out and inshaAllah you'll get the results you're hoping for. Allah is watching you and He knows that you want to be close to Him. Remember that.
