If I may...

BismiLlahir Rahmanir Rahim

Excuse me for a moment, I want to complain. Yes, I just want to complain.

I want to mention something and tell whoever might bump into this insignificant portion of the web hoping to pass some of their precious time in a fruitless pursuit that the random thing which I choose to mention is annoying and irritating me. That's a complaint, right? To whine about something because it's bothering you or maybe because you just want to hear your own voice so you pick on anything or anyone and attempt to start a case. (It takes too much energy to find good things to say, so why bother, eh?)

But you see, I'm too boring. And I currently can't think of anything to complain about. Not even myself which is usually a good place to go to get a good and decent topic for a complaint. But no, I have nothing. Zip. Zilch.

And you know what? It feels great! Just great!

But say something happens, and then I do have a complaint, and I voice it out to you. Yes you... No no, not you, but you. Clear? As clear as mud. I hoped as much. You can add that to your list of complaints. Yes, say I was to present a complaint to you, what would you do? Because you know, I'd only tell you if I trusted you enough to be able to respond to my complaints in a worthy way.

Don't listen to me whine for the sake of my whining having an audience because then your being would be easily likened to a worthless board which my whining rebounds against and comes back to me exactly the same way. Noise. I might as well complain here, on the world wide web where everything bounces back even uglier than when it leaves my grasp.

If I should so burden you with my complaints, please listen. And then, offer some fruitful feedback.

Why? Because whining for the sake of whining is a waste of time.

So quit yer whining sweetheart!

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu dearest Farzeen,

Before I start complaining about your post... what was it all about?

Complaining is sometimes good, and I like listening to my voice :D

... as long as no-one complains about food..then I'll have to shoot them!)

Love Farhana

PS: If you can complain while say..erm.. washing dishes.. it's not a waste of time :D - that's why women are so good at multi-tasking.. haha

My post is open to interpretation, so you get from it what you can decipher from it yourself.

You're right, sometimes complaining is good, but it still needs to have a productive purpose. Even if it's to just "get it off your chest."

Complaining and whining aren't quite the same. And though I didn't get into that, it might be worth thinking about.

Now if you can sing your complaint, then complaining when washing dishes is not a waste of time... otherwise, it's n-o-i-s-e :)

"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]
