So a man works far from home. Far away to keep him away from his wife for months in a row. Every time he comes home, there’s a mutual understanding that he won’t be around for long. So as much as possible, the couple try to savour every moment.
When the lover is leaving
This is a story about our very intimate love affair
They spend their days together as they do their nights.
Until it’s time for him to leave again. In those last few days, or hours, or moments, the union is strongest.
It’s no accident that Laylatul Qadr is among the last days of Ramadan. It’s also no accident that the particular night is unknown.
“The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.” [97:3]
Often, we forget Allah says the Night is better, not equal to, but better. That’s an infinity.
Make it count. Every night.
The mistakes are mine and Allah knows best.
