For the rest of my life.....


When I first heard this song, I felt so moved. I have totally fallen in love with the beautiful lyrics. Although this song is meant for a wife, I thought this is exactly what I feel like for my husband alhamdulillah. Once upon a time, I used to think love is just an illusion especially seeing the way love is depicted in the media. Seeing friends falling in love and act so crazily used to make me really annoyed. I even started to believe there is nothing called love; it's just lust but people are too embarrassed to use this term so they just call it 'love'. But I knew as Muslims we are supposed to wait till we get married then we will eventually find love but I wasn’t really sure about it. As I was single, I just thought that's just not going to happen. But Alhamdulillah marriage has completely changed my doubts about love. In Islam, love is very important and it is truly celebrated through marriage.  A loveless marriage is not really a marriage.

When Allah SWT talks about this beautiful relationship , He says “And among His Signs is this that He created for you spouses of your own kind, that you may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy for one another: verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.” (Quran 30:21)
I didn't really appreciate this verse until I got married. Now whenever I come across this beautiful verse I know what it means to be married alhamdulillah. Love is not just some feelings that are merely based on lust. It is definitely way more than that. Alhamdulillah we are best friends of each other. Allah swt didn't just mention love but also mercy and kindness as main qualities for a couple to have. Love is like a seed and through care and giving lots of time and energy we can make love grow eternally. I hope and make dua to Allah swt to make us love each more and more and reunite us in jannah, Ameen.  I am dedicating this song to you Yobo!

For the Rest of My Life Lyrics

I praise Allah for sending me you my love
You found me home and sail with me
And I`m here with you
Now let me let you know
You`ve opened my heart

I was always thinking that love was wrong
But everything was changed when you came along
OOOOO
And there’s a couple words I want to say

For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you. loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night

I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you

I know that deep in my heart
I feel so blessed when I think of you
And I ask Allah to bless all we do

You`re my wife and my friend and my strength
And I pray we`re together eternally

Now I find myself so strong
Everything changed when you came along
OOOO

And theres a couple word I want to say
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you. loving you
For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you

I know that deep in my heart now that you`re here
Infront of me I strongly feel love
And I have no doubt
And I`m singing loud that I`ll love you eternally
For the rest of my life
I`ll be with you
I`ll stay by your side honest and true
Till the end of my time
I`ll be loving you.loving you

For the rest of my life
Thru days and night
I`ll thank Allah for open my eyes
Now and forever I I`ll be there for you
I know that deep in my heart
