Give it to the busy guy

So I am having a discussion with a brother and he wants me to take on some work. I tell him I am extremely busy at the present time. He responds by laying down this convincing principle:

"If you want something done, give it to someone who is busy."

Quite logical. The busy restless guy is busy precisely because he takes on work - he gets things done. The not so busy guy is comfortably asleep because work is not his forte.

Music and Me

For some reason, whenever I pass the sound of music, even the most mellowest of slow tunes, an urge to fight overcomes me. Strange. An urge to fight, of course, in an artistic sense.

You experience something similar? Feel a change in thinking when in the company of music?

Alhamdulillah, my sister-in-law (brother's wife) gave birth today. The kid (yet to be named) is real well-behaved maa sha Allah. May Allah keep him so. I held him for around twenty minutes reciting Qur'an to him. The whole time he was looking attentively straight up at me. Funny, I thought babies don't see and hear until later on. I could be wrong?


So I am sparring and I get hit straight in the mouth with a nicely timed straight kick. The strike doesn't hurt but it is enough to knock my gum shield loose and provoke a thought: a litte harder, a little higher, a little faster, and it would be enough to knock a(nother) tooth out. God forbid. And so I vow, this winning smile I will show due gratefulness for and distribute unsparingly. And with that I pray: O Allah, make good my character just as you have made good my appearance.

Like the idea? Then why not you yourself start right now and leave a smiley face comment below? :-)>
