A one-pager from a hadith narrated by Umar Ibn Al-Khattab.

Masha’Allah thank you for this pleasant surprise!

Basically the whole weekend shebang :)

Anonymous: Tq for replying. Yes I have a simple drawing... that perhaps u can fit it in somewhere or u draw ur own reflections from it. That way, you can make it yours, too? I don't mind how it's translated back in this space :) For example, it's like being in a gallery and u see a row of posters, and I have something at hand that somehow belongs there. I would like to put it there so that others of the same interest would ponder upon it too. After all, it's all about sharing. Hmm, how do I send it to u?

No problem at all, it sounds like an interesting idea to work on :) You can email your artwork / suggestions to basmalaofficial@gmail.com

Anonymous: Salam. Hi there. The comic posters/art pieces you have here are inspiring :) I have one piece that is somehow related to the pieces here. Can I share it here?

Salam to you too. I can’t really take credit for it because what I have here are merely reflections of what I read and excerpts from selected tazkeerah which hit close to home; but I am glad that you find these visual translations inspiring, Alhamdulillah :) By all means if there’s anything that you feel we can benefit from, you are more than welcome to share! JazakAllah :D

In 1976 Cat Stevens nearly drowned off the coast of Malibu, California, USA and said he shouted:

“Oh God! If you save me I will work for you.”

He related that right afterward a wave appeared and carried him back to shore. This brush with death intensified his long-held quest for spiritual truth.

With the gift I am lent, I wish to do the same.
