.: Vanishing innocence :.


Life is a fading shadow.


“O people who take pleasure in a life that will vanish; falling in love with a fading shadow is sheer stupidity”
Ibn al-Qayyim
Less than 5 hours till I board the bus heading to Singapore to resume my studies in the "A Heart Serene" course; making this the second and final weekend where we shall delve deeper into the works of Ibn Al-Qayyim, insha'Allah. 

Having had the opportunity to read the works of Ibn Al-Qayyim in the past, it awakened a side of me that brought tears to the eyes, heart and soul due to its relevance and profoundness to the ephemeral life I embraced then. Little do I know that even after all those years, his works still produce a massive impact on me, on multiple levels. 

Stirring emotions from within.

How far is Singapore from you?

ireminisces :: Wa'alaikum'as'salam. I haven't read it unfortunately. Have one too many things on me plate.

Sketched Soul :: 45mins flight/5hrs bus ride. Not far at all. But there are places where a mere 10mins distance time can feel like all eternity. :)
