Don’t Go Back To Sleep


A decent cool breeze, which stands in the face of the pathetic hot and dry climate, silently penetrates the curtains in my room. I’ve just finished Fajir Prayer and was reading some verses from Quran. Then comes the noisy dog. I stepped toward the window, looking underneath to beg neighbor’s frantic dog:  PLEASE STOP STOP STOP BARKING!

I felt the breeze. A cool breeze that refresh my fatigued soul. One heavenly breeze was the cure for the soul that was exhausted the previous year. At that moment, I remembered Rumi’s words:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

I don’t want to describe my own feelings. Since these feelings are very special to every individual. I have just realized that I always shout O’Allah, O’ My Lord, O’ My Creator.

But this month, I didn’t…

I was wondering why I didn’t complain to you, O’ Allah.

Why I didn’t ask you for what I really want, O’ Allah.

And why I was telling people around me: Oh folks I am unable to elevate my spiritual level anymore.
