My books are my retreat
I run to them to find solace
In forgetting my worries and problems
Refreshing my soul to find space
Without books I would have felt lost
Finding the world a terrible place
My retreat exists within myself
Taking refuge when the need arise
Calming myself to energize
And my mind to revitalize

Daily Prompt: Off the Shelf
Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?
There is one book which I have read many times over, but I still haven’t my fill of it. I started reading it as a child. As a teenager (without anyone telling me) I started reading its translation along with the original words of Arabic.
I have reread it every year of my life many times, always with translation. I feel I am a better person because of it. I have always sought guidance from it.
Every time I read it, I discover a new depth, and meaning to it. I have always found solace, peace, and comfort from it. If I am worried, and open its’ pages, the verse I see confirms to my need at the moment. It’s truly a book of miracles, and a guidance for all humanity.
My favorite book is Quran.
Daily Prompt: Singing the Blues
We all feel down from time to time. How do you combat the blues? What’s one tip you can share with others that always helps to lift your spirits?
Distance yourself to what happened
Go to sleep to rest your mind
Reading a book will blot out your thoughts
Play a game, till you are realigned
Write in a diary for a little while
Speak to someone to ease your pain
Pray to God for calmness and solace
For you to be whole again
Till You Are Whole Again
