For some reason, the prophet Moses (Musa) (pbuh) has been in my thoughts recently and I have been trying to recall all I've read about him and his conversations with Allah swt. Abdallah's last post was really coincidental and I had to reproduce it here (Jazakallah brother):
Thus Moses said, when he conversed with God: “O Lord, where shall I seek Thee?” God answered: “Among those whose hearts are broken.” Moses said: “O Lord, no heart is more broken and despairing than mine.” God answered: “Then, I am where thou art.”http://heartmedicine.blogspot.com/
Surah 11, verses 110 - 115, 121 - 123:
We certainly gave the Book to Moses, but differences arose therein; had it not been a Word had gone forth before from your Lord, the matter would have been decided between them but they are in suspicious doubt concerning it. And, of a surety, to all will your Lord pay back (in full the recompense) of their deeds: for He knows well all that they do. Therefore stand firm (in the straight Path) as you are commanded, you and those who with you turn (unto God); and transgress not (from the Path); for He sees well all that you do. And incline not to those who do wrong, or the Fire will seize you; and you have no protectors other than God, nor shall you be helped. And establish regular prayers at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night: for those things that are good remove those that are evil: be that the word of remembrance to those who remember (their Lord): And be steadfast in patience; for verily Allah will not suffer the reward of the righteous to perish.
Say to those who do not believe: "Do whatever you can: we shall do our part; And wait you! we too shall wait".
To Allah belong the unseen secrets of the heavens and the earth, and to Him goes back every affair (for decision): then worship Him, and put your trust in Him: and your Lord is not unmindful of aught that you do.
