Half:Past:Midnight- What I’ve learnt so far

You took the shahadah. You have no idea what that means.

Beards don’t run the show. Every Muslim is an ambassador of Islam. Work on it.

There are two types of gatherings: one that is surrounded by angels and one that is not.

Take that leap of faith. If you know you’re supposed to be doing it, then do it. There’s no “right time”.

Good people who die early sort of just “know” they’ll die early. Cause they were out there doing positive things while I wasted away before the TV.

Get together and start a good cause. No, it will not affect your studies.

Never underestimate the power of barakah.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not relationships that’s complicated- it is the affair of hypocrisy and mixed intentions.

No one blames time for being a control freak.

There’s no such thing as luck. It’s called the Divine Intervention.

Understand that being a perfect Muslim is a myth. It’s like talking of ideal gases.

Doesn’t mean you stop trying.

“The best of sinners are those who repent.” Sign up for the contest.

It is okay to cut yourself some slack. So long as you do the same for others.

There was a prologue to your story. This is the part when your soul took an oath to worship Allah long before you existed.
What you’re doing now is writing your main narrative. Try not to mess it up, cause a sequel will follow where you left off.

Pray for others what you want for yourself. You’ll get it faster.

You know you’re friends when you can exchange your contrasting religious opinions without getting into a fight.

Never forget favours, debt and names.

Help out people you don’t like. It kills all bad feelings when they thank you.

Disagree with others where you can. It’s another way of gaining knowledge.

We know black from white. Wisdom is in sorting the grey area.

  1. Also what I’ve learnt so far…. We the Muslims will try to understand even astrophysics (our profession or not) but with try not to know about Fiqh. We are clever enough to know that not knowing is a ‘blessing’- an excuse before Allah.

    • True that. If only we knew that revealed knowledge is a thousand times more intellectually gratifying…
      Cracking rocket science and math problems is nothing compared to dissecting statements and working on case studies in Quran classes. It is awesome fun. πŸ˜€

  2. “Contrary to popular belief, it is not relationships that’s complicated- it is the affair of hypocrisy and mixed intentions.”
    “There’s no such thing as luck. It’s called the Divine Intervention.”
    “You know you’re friends when you can exchange your contrasting religious opinions without getting into a fight.”

    These I needed to read, at this time. Jazakillah.
