I once walked the road of love hand in hand with my beloved, it felt as if we dwelled in the lush gardens complementing our love for each other, we gazed and the water falls but concluded the faces of each other was more beautiful, we lived in each others minds all the time, slight separation caused total restlessness.
Time passed in the lush gardens of love, and all was well the trees bloomed beautifully, the plants strutted their contours, the grass waved its blades from side to side in all glory, a blurry picture of a worldly paradise was what it felt like deep in my bossom, just the association with one person can cause such a positive stir.
Every year has four seasons, but when the seasons change, our being doesn’t, we just merely equip ourselves with the correct gear. Sadly whilst dwelling in the lush gardens of love, we paid more attention to the birds and the trees and all the surrounds but forgot about the main garden and fountain beside us. Sadly due to dwelling in this garden so long we became oblivious of the beauty of it and resorted to fiddle with things out of this garden (cellphones, computers, too much socializing with friends) etc, then we became complacent with the way the garden was, if the leaves were falling we never cared to gather them, we neglected this garden to such and extent that even the evergreen trees began to dry up.
We became so oblivious that the things In the garden that was cultivated over the first few months of companionship was lost in an instance….
then I found myself sitting on the same land where I used to dwell in the lush gardens of love but now have turn into dry dry god forsaken earth the tree begin to creek and with time fall over the fountain will soon dry up, and when you want to start landscaping it is altogether too late!!!!!!!!
Marriage is such it has to be constantly cultivated, if due to season change the leaves are falling then gather them wet them and use mix them in your soil of life to bare more lush leaves, hold the hand of your beloved if time of need, as they say thick or thin. If resentment has crept it due to the neglect of this garden of love continue holding the hand of your beloved because Allah has approved your bond and will make it right if you believe it.
May Allah strengthen every marriage and make it like the bond nabi AS had with our beloved mother AISHA RA AND KHADIJA RA and all the other AZWAJE MUTAHARAAT
