The State of Religiousness

In about a week, I'll be heading to the Holy Land for a short pilgrimage. This is something expected of every able Muslim, and though it isn't exactly full-blown Hajj, the thought of performing this religious deed still sets me very much on edge.

Is it normal to be terrified of God's call?

In my current life, I will admit Umrah isn't exactly high on my to-do list. I mean, there are mundane, everyday religious tasks I have yet to perfect! Surely those should be given top priority? Umrah requires dedicating all focus and intentions towards submitting to Allah SWT. Point is, how do I do that in Mecca when I can hardly achieve it five times a day, at home.. (-___-)v

We all have faith skeletons hiding in our closets. And as far as closets are concerned, mine is the walk-in kind..

Going Home: Preview

I'm going home.
To the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.

I'm not running from,
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.

But these faces and these places are getting old..

So, I'm going home.
