- Teacher: A long time ago people thought there were only four elements. Can anyone guess what they were?
- Me: Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.
- teacher: what?
- Me: what?
I used to search for my Lord in every face I saw, every verse I read and every masjid I entered until one day I realized He’s been with me and within me the entire time. I was looking everywhere but my heart, I didn’t realize that it’s beat was Him speaking to me. Him saying, “Here’s more time for you, here’s another heart beat for you, here’s another chance for you to find Me.”
