What a perfect way to start my Friday morning! As I was driving to work this morning, I looked up to the sky & saw a perfect rainbow! It was clear & beautiful. It followed me all the way to my office.
I love rainbows. Rainbows are so special. A multi-coloured arc in the sky, brightening up any cloudy day. Even as a child, I remember getting so excited whenever a rainbow appears in the sky.
I see rainbows as a sign of Hope. I believe Allah created rainbows as a reminder to people to be patient in persevering challenges & obstacles in life. As a way of assuring that there is something special for everyone who face up to hurdles boldly & patiently. You see, we all have to go through a lot of rainy days, even thunderstorms, before we can see a rainbow. It is not an everyday occurrence. It doesn't happen before or after every rainy day. It just happens once in a while, but when it does, it is always a pleasant, colourful surprise!
So, don't fret my friend. If you are going through a rainy day or a thunderstorm in your life, strengthen your resolve & hold your chin up. Walk through the rain with all the strength you could muster. Challenge yourself to go that extra mile.
Then say a little prayer and one fine day, your rainbow will appear.
