Walking on sand

The one who is sincere to his Lord is like the one who walks on sand;

His footsteps are not heard, but its effects are seen

Ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu anhu)

I came across this saying by Ibn Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) , found in a book called ‘Al-Jami’ al Ulum wal Hikam’ by Ibn Rajab al Hanbali.

It is such a profound and apt similitude that I felt compelled to share it. But most importantly, felt compelled to self-asses and ask myself:

“What kind of footsteps am I taking”?

“How am I traversing the earth”?

“Who are my motivators and influencers? And, “what drives me to take action”?

Ask yourself these questions,

Answer them honestly,

Put the image of the one who walks in the sand at the forefront of your mind,

Then go from there..

It’s what I did…

And Allah is The Source of Help.
