Time flies


Heh..heh..pronounce it correctly - time flies; fried rice and not 'flied lies'. Hope the tongue is not crooked so we are able to say things as they really are.

It's 25th of November. Feel like it was only a week ago since my rambling on 25th October. 25th December will be here, before we know it, InshaAllah.

Yes time flies. My niece is sitting for her final exams. Soon she will be leaving school for good and go to college. Please kindly pray for her so that she'll pass with flying colors not just for the sake of getting all As, or to grow up and be a high-flyer, but to gain beneficial knowledge so that she would be a useful person for her family, the religion and society. Bi-iznillah.

Miss H.E. this is a lil shout out to you. I pray you'll get to study abroad as you have been dreaming. Ich liebe dich :)

Time flies, indeed. I remember the day when I received an offer to study abroad on merits Alhamdulillah. We are encouraged to travel far to seek knowledge. Come to think of it we are far behind compared to the solehin of the past who not only traveled far to seek knowledge but they had also traveled far to spread knowledge - knowledge of the deen. If it was not for them, you and I might be stuck in darkness, our souls would be empty, we would be deprived of a true sense of purpose, no raison d'etre. We might end up being one of those who make mischief, who cause harm to other people and have no qualms whatsoever. Na'uzubillah min zalik.

Anyways, here's wishing you a pleasant and productive week ahead. Productive according to Merriam Webster means: doing or achieving a lot; working hard and getting good results :)

Rabbana atina fid dunya hasanah wa fil akhirati hasanah.
