Saturday, 3 December 2016.
As I stood on the patio, coming out of a “national benchmark test “at a high school where no soul would want to be on a Saturday morning. I realized how drained I was from choosing random answers out of a thousand multiple choice questions.
Waking up at seven thirty AM was really too much of an effort.
Oh well, that sums up my morning of how productive I was
Anyway, like I’m standing there so lonely, hardly knew anyone and literally wondering where my lift could be. My soul was so determined to engage into a conversation just to keep me going while I’m waiting on my lift. Hungry for company, and tired of writing, still wondering why is my lift so late.
as I stood there, a stranger passed by…
define stranger? a random beautiful lady who is waiting on her lift too, she looks extremely energetic and has this kind of facial expression that only brings happiness. What a smile she had, passing off the Sunnah like nobody has ever done throughout my entire existence.
Wow, what a beautiful and fine soul she is.
As I stood there she smiled at me not knowingly that I have no idea who she is, or what she wants. As time passes by she asked me what am I about to do next year, what a common question everybody is asking me lately. She questioned me again and asked if I’m attending university?
With all these politics and “fees should fall” I smiled saying no I will be attending an Islamic institution. She smiled back at me and glanced at me with her beautiful radiant face telling me the exact same intention what she is about to do next year.
I was astonished and I immediately felt comfortable with her because at least we sharing a little thing in common or probably because her friendly soul made me felt at home. When she heard that I’m about to further my studies in an Islamic institution she immediately asked where? With a confident answer telling her at “Peace international college of South Africa” she got so excited telling me she will be studying there too, the type of soul she was, made me remember my purpose in life and she couldn’t stop speaking to me about her mission, goals and objectives.
She spoke to me about a thousand of things for almost an hour if not I’m exaggerating.
But I was inspired by everything she has told me, she has shared with me her position of what she was doing as a life coach and how she wanted to assist Muslim females who are facing their very own challenges in their daily life.
I noticed something very special about her that even if she passed by as a stranger to me at that present moment, I realized that even a stranger shall implant a footprint within your heart to treasure. She never taught me anything not beneficial but only knowledge to guide what I would love to do in the next 3 years.
She taught me that in life, no challenge is a bad turning point but only a turning point to make a difference. And that if you look at life through the eyes of love, it is beautiful.
Her inspiring words haven’t just taught me about challenges or obstacles one face but also it has encouraged me to look at the world differently and to realized that everyone has their imperfections and their flaws that allow the world to be a disgrace but when you truly look at the world through your eyes with love, deep within every soul there is a side of true hope and beauty.
Today I have met a complete stranger, and I am hoping to meet her again.
What a remarkable and beautiful kind hearted person she is.
