a $20 bill looks so big when you
take it to the mosque, but so small when you take it to the market. |
Funny how long it takes to do Zikr
(remember Allah) for an hour, but how quickly a team plays 60 minutes of
long a couple of hours spent at the mosque are,
but how short they are when watching a movie.
Funny how we can't
think of anything to say when we pray, but don't have difficulty
thinking of things to talk about to a friend.
Funny how we get thrilled when a baseball
game goes into extra innings, but we complain when a "Tarawih" during
Ramadhan is longer than the regular time.
hard it is to read a chapter of the Holy
Quran, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a best selling novel.
people want to get a front seat at any game
or concert, but scramble to get a back row at mosque so that they can
scramble out fast.
we need 2 or 3 weeks advance notice to fit a mosque event into our
schedule, but can adjust our schedule for other events at the last
* Funny how
hard it is for people learn a simple preaching well enough to tell
others, but how simple it is for the same people to understand and
we believe what the newspaper says, but
question what the Quran says.
everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, or
to think, or to say, or do anything.
you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like
wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding Allah, people
think twice about sharing.
FUNNY, ISN'T IT?
Are you laughing? Are you thinking?
Give thanks to Allah for He is good & Merciful!
