When the King calls, everything else seems to disappear.
Sulayman Van Ael
I am well aware that my Lord will be calling me any moment now. Ya Allah, I have to be ready. When He calls, I do not want to be late. I have to get myself ready. I wash myself, put on some perfume and my best clothes. Please don’t talk to me now, I am about to meet the Lord of the Universe.
I am ready, but what will He think of me. He calls me. I am so nervous and exited at the same time. While I am walking towards the King, I think about His blessings and my lack of gratitude. He asked me to do numerous things, but I fell short. How bad of an employee am I indeed. People that pass me in the street seem to notice my anxiety. They must be thinking that one of my family members died, or that I just lost my job. I know better … I will be standing in front of the Shaper very soon!
