Enough said | Lisan al-Din will be made private from 1st Ramadhan until further notice


Excessive talking is energy draining. Misunderstanding is energy draining. Having to explain oneself unnecessarily is energy draining. Socializing, albeit virtually, is energy draining.

Having lost a little too much energy, makes me want to drop everything and turn to a handful of loving people who could soothe the heart, people who understand me even in silence. And to return to my private space. To retire and to regroup before resurfacing again, maybe, God willing.

I am beginning to realize more clearly now, the price one has to pay for speaking up in public and for having an opinion on something. And for sharing a bit about one's life and oneself.

Enough said.
Thank you all.
Ramadhan Mubarrak!
This space might be made public again in Shawal, perhaps, I am not sure, InshaAllah.

p/s If you wish to continue reading Lisan al-Din blog when it is in "private mode", kindly leave a comment providing a short intro and your email address. You will then be invited so that you may have access to the blog when you log in using the email which you provide. Comments containing your email address will not be published so as to protect your privacy InshaAllah. I know this is cumbersome to the regular visitors and it would affect about 400 readers on a daily basis. But let's hope this temporary "private mode" would be beneficial somehow. My apologies for this inconvenience. Please forgive my shortcomings. May Allah bless you abundantly for your patience and understanding. Thank you.

  1. as-salam alaikum

    It's a pity that you leave us here alone in these dark wastelands...
    However, maybe it is not a bad idea. From time to time it is a good idea to restrain our own members (even if they're virtual ones) and return to the things that concern us. That is, remember the Creator, concentrate in Him, ignoring the idle talk that surround us.
