Wallahi, I’m gonna miss IAW (Islamic Awareness Week). It came and now it’s gone. May Allah accept our efforts leading up to this week, during it and after it. And forgive our shortcomings and mistakes that we did in this week. I just wanted to thank the organizers and all the volunteers for creating such a great atmosphere of remembering Allah. Special shout out to Social Justice for consistently being the coolest thing since sliced bread. JazakAllahu khair for everything you guys.
Today one of the chief coordinators of my MSA’s Islam Awareness Week told me that she remembered me from highschool. And I’m like “NO way you went to my highschool.” And she said “yeah just for grade 9 tho”. And then I walked away sort of amused at the random people you meet in university but then something hit me. When she was in grade 9, I was in grade 10. And when I was in grade 10, I was just starting to practise Islam and had a ton of problems.
Now I’m really worried as to who she remembers me as. As the guy who would XYZ? I wonder if she’s told anyone. That would probably change people’s perceptions of me a great deal (in a negative way alas). But she seems like a good person, so I’ll assume against that and hope for the best. Maybe I’ll apologize tomorrow just in case but who knows that might just open a huge can of worms.
Late nights with Mahdi. Coming soon to a cold city near you!
But more seriously today was a funny day full of confusion, huge fluctuations in blood sugar levels (i ran out of test strips), more confusion, fun Qur’an recitation and a little reflecting about life. Alhamdullillah a good day,
I have a psych midterm is t-17 hrs and your duas would be appreciated. I know I never put my practising story up even though I said I would but I havent forgotten just be super duper busy with school. May Allah make it easy for you and give you success in your endeavours. Maybe I’ll have a chance to share some reflections about life after the midterm. Until then I bid you adieu
I miss Muhammad (salAllahu `alaihi wa salam). I wish having a role model for every situation. I wishing having a guiding hand in the most confusing of situations. Someone who I could confidently say is living his life as God wants him to and then follow him on his way. I miss my Prophet, my teacher, my love. May Allah (God)’s peace and blessing be showered upon him, his family and noble companions till the end of times.
