NOT JUST A SEASON...

Alhumdulillah this year Pakistan is experiencing an early winter... I cannot say much about my city, it's not cold as yet, but the feeling is there! The early morning chill, the fragrance of winter at night, the nostalgia... Oh it's gorgeous already alhumdulillah...
I can feel silence in the air... When tea boils in the morning, the aroma settles in the quiet, still air... It lingers on for quite sometime, till we dont shake it out of the curtains and wipe it away with the dust cloth and mop... Till it stays it keeps us feeling cosy...
Yahya cannot decide whether it's cold or not... After a shower he feels chilly... Soon after it gets hot... I explain himit's just the weather changing it's mood! SubhanAllah for the wonders of nature and the wonders of Allah swt!!!
I still don't feel cold ofcourse (there is no reason to!) but snuggling up with a book is already so much fun!


 Colors already seem more vibrant... I'm looking for reasons to add oranges and rusts to the sitting area inshAllah!


I am terribly missing the gorgeous winters of our northern areas! The coming of autumn dulls it to grey and orange hues... Winters bring bright hues on people while the weather becomes grey... Fruit stalls get piled with bright colored fruits ranging from pomegranates to oranges... Traditional wraps, shawls and cloaks brighten the surroundings... The mountain ranges look humble in the dull grey environment... Frothy cups of coffee release picturesque wisps of steam, that curl artistically and hover over the cups in the still air... 


It is not just a season! It is a matter of joy... A matter of recognizing the might of the Lord! It's about falling in love with our surroundings... The consistency of nature to change every now and then... Presenting us with oppurtunities to celebrate the fruits of nature! Alhumdulillah!


Oh how gracious is the Almighty! SubhanAllah! Gracious for the Hot summers, the cold winters, the dry autumns and the festive springtimes! Alhumdulillah for these blessings of Allah swt! Certainly there are signs in the setting and rising of the sun and moon for the believers! As for the coming and going of the seasons, they are clear signs of His miracles and His powers! SubhanAllah!
