What the hell is wrong with you?!
You need a serious kick in the rear end.
When's the last time you woke up for tahajjud, that most sincere mode of direct and solemn communication with your Creator?
That's ok dude, I already know. I won't embarrass you.
Ramadan is around the corner – when was the last time you fasted a volunteer fast?!
You pranced around all proud of yourself for having completed reciting the entire Quran last Ramadan, but what have you done in the 10 months since?
You pompous ignoramus.
You claim to worship Allah alone, but the idols of personal whims and worldly desires are firmly established in you, having gained top priority.
You aspire for a polished heart, but you fear the abrasive nature of the Prophetic sand-paper.
You claim to love your 'Beloved', but remain ignorant of his sublime character and temperament.
What a joke!
You are ever so sensitive to the slightest breach of your rights, while boorishly stomping on the rights of others.
You hold such low opinions of those around you, chastising them for the most trivial of missteps, while overlooking your own colossal blunders.
When will you wise up to your shortcomings?
You pray as though you're releasing a burden, saving your passion for other fickle endeavors.
You recite the Quran as though you're in a race to get it over with.
You feed your anger instead of feeding the poor.
Your eyes wander recklessly, showing no control, like some wild boar.
Your tears flow more freely for a cheesy film than for your egregious faults.
In the hierarchy of your love, Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) lie somewhere between your children and their breakfast cereals.
Your ugliness knows no bounds. You make me sick.
Disappointed, Disturbed, and Disgusted,
