It's been many days... look like that... since I posted on my blog.

It's going to be fajr time soon InshaALLAH as it's about 3:32 am in the morning. I'm working on my computer as these are the only hours I've got. In the morning there is a lot of loadshedding because of which I can't pay attention.

No Shoes

I was reading a post on SirAdib's Journal titled I'm such a cheapskate and a story came in my mind which I had read from a book of Shaikh Saadi (RahmatuLLAH Alaih).

Once a Dervish was going to a mosque for his prayers (Asr prayers may be) and he had no shoes on either of his feet. He was miserable walking with his bare feet. He complained to ALLAH that "Oh ALLAH you have unlimited resources, you can do whatever you want and I am your servant and you didn't give me just a pair of shoes?"

Anyways, he walked however he could and reached the mosque. When he reached there, he saw a person who was already there waiting for the prayers. He had no feet at all.

The Dervish realized how unjust his complaining was. He bowed in sajda ask forgiveness and thanked ALLAH for his gifts.

As I woke-up today I found that the room-air-cooler is empty of water so I turn-on the tap and forgot!!! Soon everything in my room was swimming in water and now my wife is furious at me.

Yesternight my wife read a blog-post written by Umm Omar about sexual abuse and then I saw her face expressions suddenly turned sorrowful. I asked what has happened? And she actually started crying. I asked, "why are you crying?" as I was quite alarmed that she rarely cries. And she asked me, "what do they get from doing this? girls are so innocent, do they not fear ALLAH?" I had no answer to this question.

How I was saved from all this is a good question. I credit my father for this and the father of my father of course (May ALLAH keep him in peace, A'meen). When I was a kid, no more than 7 I think, My grandfather presented me with a book named "Hudood-o-Ta'zeerat" which is written by an Ex Chief Justice of Pakistan I have discussed it briefly in Islamic Books I Read. That book told me everything about right and wrong. What is done, what can be done and what are the punishment for those doings according to Islam. So, as the punishment to such crimes is mostly death, it kept me aware that how big such a crime is in Islam and that kept me from doing and letting others do such a thing infront of me.

In one case I was overpowered by such a criminal but suddenly Dad arrived and I was saved. He took me home, scolded me and insulted me as much as he could. But it didn't matter to me and I was happy with him that he saved me from a lot of trouble.

I thought for a good topic for this post but then I realized that it is good left without a topic because those who should read will read it InshaALLAH and those who should not will not find any attraction in it without a topic.

Changed my blog's logo today but I'm not so impressed with my work. Though it was the best I could do in 15 minutes (it's about ideas).

Added a new blog to my favourites. That's CoolMuslimah's blog. Hope she lives in Pakistan. Never met some good blogger from Pakistan (if she's not from Pakistan).

It's about fajr time and people here are quite asleep. Sun is about to rise.
