Assalaamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh...
And so he, who has a well-grown beard, walked past the Student Affairs Section with swag. No heads turned. No one seemed to want to whistle at his cool beard. His new khakis were folded above his ankles and his brand new black sandal he bought at a nearby kedai runcit for BND3 were so the "in" thing at the moment. A makcik nearby seemed to envy the sandal he was wearing. His lips were busy, mumbling what seemed to sound like a bunch of praise. All... praise... for...
His gaze was lowered, but not his sight. He could still see clearly where he's heading to.
"Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do." [An-Nur ayah 30]
He could still spread salaam to anyone who passed by with no other intention but to spread good prayers for them. He could still give a warm smile to anyone he meets on his way to the Masjid, class, library - everywhere. He never speak bad things about anything, and he spreads love. Not hatred. Not judgement. His words are the best of words one has ever heard.
And tell My servants to say that which is best. Indeed, Satan induces [dissension] among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a clear enemy. [Al-Isro' ayah 53]
Despite all his worries, he knew, that he has Allah by his side. His relationship with Allah is the closest. He never want to lay his eyes on anyone before he is able to carry the responsibility to guide, in a halal relationship. He knew, whoever Allah has set for him, she will only come when he is ready. And only Allah knows, when he is ready. He doesn't know, but he trusts Allah's plans. Because indeed, Allah is the Best Planner. There's no doubt about that.
And now he's heading to DMP, for a session with MYC to fill up his soul with friendship and soulfood. Most importantly, to be closer to his Creator... Allah.
He's got a beard, with much swag. Because he has Allah... all the time... in his heart.
Have you got a beard... with swag?
