OOOH! POOR MONDAY
DID YOU KNOW that THERE is totally NOTHING WRONG with JANUARY? It’s your ATTITUDE. How about MONDAY, many people, I INCLUDED have this WEIRED NOTION that it’s such a JINXED DAY of the week when people really VENT a CRAZY BAD MOOD.
Well! You may want to CHANGE THAT today. In Kenya, AUGUST- SEPTEMBER is such a DREADED PERIOD of time that every POLITICIAN and TYCOON IS UPBEAT; why? They MAY DIE. We JUSTFY it by ENUMERATING the number of PEOPLE WHO MATTER that KICKED th BUCKET during SUCH a TIME. Of COURSE a LIE PEDDLED for a PERIOD of time BECOMES the TRUTH. The fact is, we have BEEN LIED TO. In fact MALICIOUSLY MALIGNED. How about the NOTION that DECEMBER is “THE” MONTH and therefore EVERYTHING should be done to MULTIPLY IT BY TWO and SUBTRACT JANUARY???
I pray that you LIVE LONG ENOUGH to see this LUNACY REACH its PEAK. But that’s not the issue. The REAL ISSUE IS, you didn’t CREATE the day you are CURSING. You didn’t EVEN KNOW when you APPEARED on EARTH that you have now CLASSIFIED into FIRST world, SECOND and THIRD.
If there was a FOURTH and FIFTH one maybe we WOULD BE PUSHED to that. ALLAH the CREATOR is the ALL KNOWING of all affairs. Nothing HAPPENS EXCEPT by his will. You will be PAID on a MONDAY infact the very EARLY MONDAY. And WEEKEND may TURN OUT to be your WORST NIGHTMARE with no REST but alot of TEETH GNAWING and LAMENTATIONS. Henceforth know that GOD ALMIGHTY is TIME and when you INSULT TIME, you are LITERALLY INSULTING THE MASTER.
Let EVERYDAY count. Let every HOUR mean something to you whether NEGATIVE or POSITIVE. Don’t expect EVERYDAY to be a Monday. There are WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS too. The ARABS SAY: The world REVOLVES BETWEEN the BULL’S HORNS. Today’s it’s SMILING at you but tomorrow it my show YOU a FRAWN. When you have it smiling, SMILE BACK at the LESS FORTUNATE and THANK GOD for that an ASK HIM FOR MORE smiling days. But when it TURNS AGAINST YOU, REBOOT and see what WENT WRONG. ACTUALLY take it to be a LESSON to be learnt. Show GRATITUDE when things ARE BRIGHT and REMEMBER ALLAH when things go South.
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:
” قَالَ اللَّهُ: يَسُبُّ بَنُو آدَمَ الدَّهْرَ، وَأَنَا الدَّهْرُ، بِيَدِي اللَّيْلُ وَالنَّهَارُ”
رواه البخاري (وكذلك مسلم)
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Allah said: Sons of Adam inveigh against [the vicissitudes of] Time, and I am Time, in My hand is the night and the day (1). (1) As the Almighty is the Ordainer of all things, to inveigh against misfortunes that are part of Time is tantamount to inveighing against Him. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim).
