Periphery

a record of mundane things that have stuck in my mind, and what they may mean.

Alhamdulilah. Alhamdulilah!

Just yesterday, I was extremely depressed about Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam. I could barely do my readings for class. It all got complicated by a caffeine overdose too. But duaa and recitation of the Quran really helps. Now I'm still worried and upset. But I'm also hopeful, and hope only comes from Allah.

I think my Myers-Briggs type, INTP, is not completely accurate. Yesterday in my class. For instance, I thought I should be the most shy person, the most reluctant to speak. But I realized I'm one of the most vocal :)

Gotta run.

I don't know what they hope to accomplish by bothering Yusuf Islam, he's so obviously not a terrorist and such a public figure. sheesh.

guess I should try the prayer and Qur'an reading...

I read today's New York Times and I felt this DREAD. I want to scream and cry because I don't want Americans to be killed, because I don't want the leaders to lead us astray, because I don't want to see myself and all the other Americans to be called to account on the Last Day. and because I want everything to move back to before 9/11/2001 and I want to do everything I should have done. I want to start working on the pile before it comes tumbling down on me. but its too late now. and my back is breaking b/c the pile is too big.


but all this is probably blasphemous for Allah "never lays on a soul a burden greater than it can bear." May Allah help me carry mine and you your's. ameen
