"April Rain Song" by Langston Hughes was one of my favorite poems from childhood. I’ve experienced the rain a bit differently as an adult.

thegreaterjihad:

Verse 60 in Surat Ghāfir (The Forgiver) reads:

وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۚ 

And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” [Qur’an 40:60]

God continues in this verse to say that it is they who are too proud or arrogant to worship (in this case, make dua) who are in the wrong. So when you see people asking for duas for themselves or for whomever, and it seems ‘selfish,’ it’s not. Because God commanded you (ادْعُونِي— Call upon Me) to ask so that He will respond. 

Let’s remember to humble ourselves so that we may receive the blessings of our supplications. Because simply by calling unto God, He will respond.

…and when we make dua, we should just deal with Allah directly. Don’t just recite words that you have memorized..know what they mean, and mean them as a conversation with Allah, like you are talking TO Him. And its totally fine for you to make dua in English. Its okay! Whatever language you know, talk to Allah in that language. Its nice of you to memorize the duas, its great! But the spirit of Dua is that YOU ARE TALKING TO ALLAH. If you just recite the duas you have memorize, just regurgitation of words and there is no conversation between you and Allah then you are missing the point. 
You asked about Allah and Allah came so near, and then He says something even more beautiful, He says ‘I respond immediately’- “ta-jeebo’’ actually means respond immediately and I will respond. It carries the present and the future, you know what that does? It gives us hope. 
You know you meet some people sometimes and they are like Allah isn’t going to answer my prayers, I am SUPER messed up. Allah says ‘ta-jeebo’ ‘Do and I will!’ But Allah wont answer my prayers, He’ll answer the prayers of guy leading the taraveeh, the imam, the guy who is so much more religious than I am, the girl that wears hijab etc etc, THOSE are the good muslims, Allah is going to answer them not me! But Allah says ‘I will respond to the call of the caller.’ He doesn’t say call of the believer, the call of the Muslim, the call of the righteous, He didn’t use ANY of those descriptions, He says 
‘CALL OF THE CALLER.’ (دعوة الدّاع)
So anybody who calls qualifies to be the caller, you don’t have to be a special person to call out to Allah! So by saying ‘call of the caller’ Allah opens the invitation to anybody who wants to call to Allah. He didn’t put any limitations on anybody, He didn’t put any other criteria, except JUST be a caller!

Why Writers Are the Worst Procrastinators

writingbox:

Fantastic article on the psychology behind procrastinating, and why writers are particularly susceptible to it.

“Work finally begins,” says Alain de Botton, “when the fear of doing nothing exceeds the fear of doing it badly.” For people with an extremely fixed mind-set, that tipping point quite often never happens. They fear nothing so much as finding out that they never had what it takes.

Not just for “writers”.
