He is, after all, almighty, and you are weak.
He is, after all, omniscient, and you know so little.
He is, after all, omnipresent, and you can only be…wherever you are.
Surrender to such a being is a frightening prospect
—but I strongly recommend that you do it.
Because if you are suffering under the illusion
that you are strong, wise, or master of more land than you are standing on
you need to be taken down a notch or two.
Najat knows just how to do it:
Put your ass in the air
five times a day
in front of your women and children and servants.
The Prophet—peace be upon him—knew what he was doing.
The heart must be humbled before it can know true strength, wisdom, or power.
Only if you surrender your pridewill Allah give you what you really desire in its place.
