new love

I felt Islam is even more beautiful tonight.

I keep watching on amazing Quran recitation and burst into tears.


What came to my mind is that :

''well, now i really understand how a person appeals towards Islam after hearing the Quran verses.

No wonder even the fierce and persistent Saidina Umar Al-Khattab radiallahu anhu was defeated by the Quran recitation and converted into Islam.''

To refresh the story :

Umar came to the door (of the house of his sister) as Khabbab (a companion of the Prophet) was studying under her guidance the Sura Taha and also "When the Sun is Overthrown" (81:1). The polytheists used to call this reading "rubbish". When Umar came in, his sister saw that he meant mischief and hid the sheets from which they were reading. Khabbab slipped away into the house. Umar asked what was the gibberish he had heard, to which she answered that it was merely conversation between them..." (The Life of the Messenger of God)

Umar exploded in wrath at what he believed to be a prevarication, and struck his sister in her face. The blow caused her mouth to bleed. He was going to strike again but the sight of blood made him pause. He suddenly appeared to relent, and then in a changed tone asked her to show him what she was reading. She sensed a change in him but said: "You are an unclean idolater, and I cannot allow you to touch the Word of God."

Umar immediately went away, washed himself, returned to his sister's home, read the text of Qur'an, and then went to the house of Arqam where he formally accepted Islam.

Thanks to my ustaz who blow the spirit by assigned the Islamic documentary as homework,where I digressed a little bit too much by enjoying lots and lots of amazing videos.

My soul is shivering right now.

Okay,get back to work.
