Just Another Day...

Bismi Allahir Rahmanir Raheem

*Dear God, how will I be when the angel in black will come for me? What will he say when I ask for one more day, just another day, just another day...*

And so I begin a blog. The hope is that I can write more, think more, and most importantly make sense, for my sake, of this world around us. In all truth, the Internet is no place to call home. So while I start this, I know that there are obvious limitations. In the least, this will compensate for my release from the world of academia. Better yet, I hope that it will go beyond what the classroom ever offered and instead allow certain fruits to flourish -- the same fruits I neglected while in school.

Here's a part of the effort to find the peace that I once experienced through writing. Thoughtful reflection eventually brings peace and contentment, by the permission of Allah.

Assalamu'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I get statistics which tell me what sites link to my blog, and look what I found!

So you've decided to do the blog thing yourself? It's an interesting experiment, I must say, especially when you read your own stuff years later. Just don't let it consume too much of your time, insha-Allah... I'll be the first to admit that there are many better ways to spend the time. At the same time, writing is a useful release that has helped me on a few occasions. And if anyone else benefits from the writing, all the better.

May Allah Subhana wa ta'Ala grant you the peace and contentment that you seek, insha-Allah.

Aha... sneaky world of computers I tell ya.

Thanks for the advice. I will keep it in mind, insha'Allah. Although now that I'm done playing with the blog template, I'm not sure I have anything to fill the blog with...

Ameen to your du'a. Thanks.

Thanks for your kind words (and forgive me for taking donkey years before replying).

I'm not sure you'll learn much from me, but at least you can correct me when you see that I err as I so often do.

Wow - I'm so pleased that what I wrote meant something to someone.

I must say though in reading your other postings, that you seem remarkably mature and insightful.

May Allah bless you and continue to guide you in the future.

Assalaamu'alaykum brother Burhan

Ameen to your du'a and thanks for your kind words. Ameen to them too :).

AlhamduliAllah the lyrics to that song have been a good source to reflect on. Thanks!

Wasalaams Farzeen,

Absolutely a pleasure. Although life circumstances have changed so much, the words still carry weight for me in a very special way.

With peace,

"Do you think that you will enter the Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suffering and adversity and were so shaken in spirit that even the Apostle and those of faith who were with him cried: 'When (will come) the help of God?' Ah! Verily the help of God is (always) near!" [2:214]

"Be mindful of God, and God will protect you. Be mindful of God, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of God. If you seek help, seek help of God. Know that if the whole world were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that God had already prescribed for you. And if the whole world were to gather together to harm you, it would harm you only with something that God has already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the ink has dried."
--Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him]
