if ayman were to give an example of beauty -it would be an anorexic-like woman heavily clowned in makeup and figure-hugging clothes with not a pimple, blemish, scar in sight…

my example of beauty would be the heavens above, just like the new tweaked pics from the hubble -see how vast the differences between us!!!…(-which actually made me feel even more lonely even when i had company, the fact that i couldn’t even share such a pure, zen-like, blissful, spiritual experience with even my life partner)…when i’m lying on my back gazing in the stars at night -that would be when i totally feel insync with the rest of Allah’s creation…even more when i’m making sujud out in the open, underneath the stars…i feel like i’m with nature and everything else that eagerly submits, surrenders to Allah…totally connected with my Creator…

whenever i see popping breath-taking images like these i get goosebumps -in a good way of course, like when your skin tingles with delight, and your heart feels like its about to explode in absolute awe and amazement of how much these endless universes, galaxies sing the glory, majesty, power, supremeness, might of our Creator…Subhannallah!

and then you realise the many issues, problems you are currently facing are hardly as humongous as juggling the entire cosmic universes…and as we’re seeing in this specific pic here the gradual process of a dying star, it makes you wonder when we’re next in that process, just what qiyaamah would be when everything out there including us will be extinguished and how it will be like when we’re resurrected and stand before our Lord…-i know i’m definitely not ready or prepared for that moment yet and have so much to do in order for me to…


“With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.”

(Surat Adh-Dhariyat (The Winds that Scatter):47)

“Who has created the seven heavens one above another; you can see no fault in the creation of the Most Gracious. Then look again: “Can you see any rifts?”

(Surat Al-Mulk (Dominion):3);

“So I swear by the Lord of all the (three hundred and sixty (360)) points of sunrise and sunset in the east and the west that surely We are Able, To replace them by (others) better than them; and We are not to be outrun.”

(Surat Al-Ma’arij (The Ways of Ascent):40-41);

“And (remember) the Day when We shall roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books. As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it. (It is) a promise binding upon Us. Truly, We shall do it.”

(Surat Al-Anbiya’ (The Prophets):104),

“He manages and regulates (every) affair from the heavens to the earth; then it (affair) will go up to Him, in one Day, the space whereof is a thousand years of your reckoning (i.e. reckoning of our present world’s time).”

(Surat As-Sajdah (The Prostration):5),

“Say (O Muhammad (pbuh)):” Do you verily disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two Days? And you set up rivals (in worship) with Him? That is the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, Jinn and all that exists). He placed therein (i.e. the earth) firm mountains from above it, and He blessed it, and measured therein its sustenance (for its dwellers) in four Days equal (i.e. all these four days were equal in the length of time) for all those who ask (about its creation). Then He rose over (Istawa) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: “Come both of you willingly or unwillingly.” They both said: “We come willingly.” Then He completed and finished from their creation (as) seven heavens in two Days and He made in each heaven its affairs. And We adorned the nearest (lowest) heaven with lamps (stars) to be an adornment as well as to guard (from the devils by using them as missiles against the devils). Such is the Decree of Him the All-Mighty, the All-Knower.”

(Surat Fussilat (They are explained in detail):9-12);

“We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them except with truth, and for an appointed term. But those who disbelieve turn away from that whereof they are warned.”

(Surat Al-Ahqaf (The Curved Sand-hills):3);
