I have a dream

I have a dream, or rather, a vision.
So big it is that it scares me.
Will I live long enough to turn it into reality?

How is it going to be reality when I am no longer around?

Came to my mind that I have to be immortal
Ah, somewhere around this world, there might be an elixir
One that will enable me to see my dream become true.
On and on I keep looking for it.
For I know that the time will never stop.
Happy I am for at last I found it.

Abu Hurairah reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: "If anyone calls others to follow right guidance, his reward will be equivalent to those who follow him (in righteousness) without their reward being diminished in any respect, and if anyone invites others to follow error, the sin, will be equivalent to that of the people who follow him (in sinfulness) without their sins being diminished in any respect"


When you have troubles coming to you from all over the places, you begin to reflect upon all the things that you have done. You start to think that you are actually in a very difficult position that no one ever had before, that the people around you cannot even relate too. You start to rationalize your anger despite the fact that you understand that others also have so much in their plate too. Dude, you feel that it is too much that you began to think to quit everything. That is when you know that shaytan is overpowering you through your anger, through your emotion and through your frustration. So, what should you do?

1. Reflect upon the hadeeth ralated to patient and anger. You would see that there are lots of hadeeths telling you not to be angry, that patients is at the first hit, that the men who are strong are not due to their strength but due to their ability to be patient when they are angry. But still, you are angry. Your emotion is getting over you.

2. Keep yourselves silent. Because the more you talk, the more unaware you become of all the words that you have and might say. You might be lying just because you don't want to lose. You might say words that are unable to be taken back. You might hurt others.  But you don't want to lose your argument and you don't want the others to feel that they are actually on the right side.

3. Take ablution. Oh wait. The restrooms are too far.

4. Lie down.  Oh wait. What others would feel? You are lying down in the middle of the room.
