Why do people have to leave each other by Yasmin Mogahed

I have collected the following post from Suhaibwebb.com which is written by sister Yasmin Mogahed. One of the wonderful post I have ever read.


When I was 17 years old, I had a dream. I dreamt that I was sitting inside a masjid and a little girl walked up to ask me a question. She asked me: “Why do people have to leave each other?” The question was a personal one, but it seemed clear to me why the question was chosen for me. I was one to get attached.
 

Ever since I was a child, this temperament was clear. While other children in preschool could easily recover once their parents left, I could not. My tears, once set in motion, did not stop easily. As I grew up, I learned to become attached to everything around me. From the time I was in first grade, I needed a best friend. As I got older, any fall-out with a friend shattered me. I couldn’t let go of anything. People, places, events, photographs, moments—even outcomes became objects of strong attachment. If things didn’t work out the way I wanted or imagined they should, I was devastated. And disappointment for me wasn’t an ordinary emotion. It was catastrophic. Once let down, I never fully recovered. I could never forget, and the break never mended. Like a glass vase that you place on the edge of a table, once broken, the pieces never quite fit again.

Hardship in the path of Allah

I have watched a lecture by sister Yasmin Mogahed in a conference by MSA west. It was wondeful and described some amazing point of view to understand the hardships of life. here is the link from Suhaibwebb



The Prophet ﷺ (peace be upon him) said: "If Allah wills good for someone, He subjects them to hardship." How could that be? How can hardship ever be good for us? What is the purpose of trials and why does Allah promise that we will face trials and tribulation? In what way does hardship purify and develop us? When is tribulation a punishment? When is it a blessing?
Yasmin Mogahed discusses these issues in a speech titled "Hardships and the Path to God" at the 2011 MSA West Conference.


An Inspiring Writer : Yasmin Mogahed


I came to know her by a piece named The Dream of Life which was really a wonderful one. Then I found another write-ups titled Emptying The Vessel which I liked a lot. After that, I watched her to deliver a speech on Manhood and Womanhood in Islam which was educative, thought-provoking and enchanting. After all these, I found many more thoughtful, amazing writings and still counting. The most interesting part of her writings to me is the philosophical essence of our beliefs which adds a new dimension in the heart of readers. Like other Dayees (preachers) of Islaam, who presents the message of 'Deen' to people, she is a devoted intellect who writes and speaks for ummah. She writes in Suhaibwebb.com, which is a wonderful website. She has a website where all her activities are found altogether. Her contribution for Deen is inspiring the Muslim ummah, especially for our Muslimah sisters.
