A Gift From Allah

Today Allah gifted us with a wonderful present of clouds and rain. There was a cool wind from the north. My soul absorbed the rain like a sponge absorbs water. I felt like I had stumbled onto a oasis after wandering lost in the desert  for so long .

A drop of rain fell onto my lips as I hung my head out the kitchen window to let the rain fall on my face. I was tempted to lick it from my lips but remembered I was fasting. The temptation was strong , almost over whelming. Until I realized this was a test of my faith and the strength of my fast. I let it trickle down my face to my chin. By now my entire face was glistening from the rain.I pulled my head back from the clouds, turned to the stove to cook our dinner, feeling refreshed physically and spiritually.

 Later, I walked into the living room to tell Moe something. I saw it was glowing in a pink orange light. I looked out the balcony to find the source of this light. It was the sunset .
