A little break
January 4, 2009 § 41 Comments
I’m going to be away for a little while. No, nothing to worry about, just one of my phases where I don’t exactly feel like blogging – and besides, I need some time off, I’ve gotten drastically busy but at the same time undisciplined. I need to be more disciplined with my time.
I’ll be back though inshaAllah whenever I need to rant/rave again. 😀
I’d actually intended to write a post on Riba & the Sunni Perspective on Yazid and Muawiyah. In fact, the second one is sitting half complete in my drafts – but I’m too lazy to complete.
And, I’ve decided against it, especially after I read SAWJ’s little post which caused a complete ruckus. And somehow, that ruckus also ended on my blog . 😛 And I felt the need to post a post regarding it. I usually don’t get into Sunni & Shiíte debates. At all. They are a waste of time as either side is so firm on what they believe in that there is no point in arguing about it. It creates nothing but fitna – so I decided against posting it altogether.
Just a couple of little reminders before I depart:
This is the month of Muharram. A sacred month where in fasting has more reward then normal voluntary fasting. The Mu’min never fails to take advantage where he or she can increase their chance to earn the pleasure of Allah. It is Winter, the nights are long to be used for Dhikr and the days are short to be used for fasting. And sin in this month is more punishable then compared to other months.
In this month is the Day Of Ashurra, where in fasting that day expiates sins for a year.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Fasting the day of ‘Arafah I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year before it and the year after it, and fasting the day of ‘Ashoora’ I hope Allaah will expiate thereby for the year that came before it.” Narrated by Muslim, 1162.
Thirdly, As Muslims, we need to become more united as an Ummah instead of bickering about incessant topics which will bring us no benefit. We need to rise as a nation and hold on to the rope of Allah to become the Ummah that has the characteristics of, ‘doing good and forbidding evil’.
Anyway, this is an end to my post. I’m around obviously. You all know where to contact me if important. 🙂
