crax in the wall

by Gillette aka Hassan[uddin] Khaja

the riyaa was merely seeping through the crax
in the wall
now it's been blasted open
and the shayateen rejoice
when allah (ta'ala) puts me through this
and the stakes are raised
so the shayteen can grab one
and stab me with the poisoned tip
and he can infect me
with an acute strain of heart disease
called kibr
it occasionally figures into my motivation
give me high status in everyone's eyes except allah
make me a leader of all the women so they can swoon over me
and the men so they can envy me
like i envy them
when the greed for status comes
it hits me like a believer's greed for jannah
he tried to hide his ibaadah
but i saw him through the crax in the wall

Ok this makes it 3rd posting in a row..by brother hassan...We can officially say that the site should be called Gillette Chronicles....

ok the sister who was getting engaged should not wate time and get married, Insha'Allah...I heard a Sheikh say recently that when a good muslim man comes and proposes to a lady then there would be fitnah if the family of the lady rejects the suitor for some odd ball reason...Allah-hu-Aalim...but regardless, this Pakhtoon bro is everybit a match and then some for this sister of ours...so my suggestion would be to stop wasting time and get your parents to agree with this Marriage, Insha'Allah....In the mean time I will make special prayers for you guys and hope to hear about the news of your wedding bells soon....Insha'Allah

and for all the rest folks at ISRU, please send us some new article to discuss and explore....I

By the way i have a query...Its friday here in Tokyo and if I had offered Juma prayers here and then flown back to california, I can still arrive before Juma prayers...so the 1st part of my query is this...Can i offer two jumma prayers...if not, which one should I offer, here in Tokyo or back in California...is there a fatwa on this...I hope some sheikh has said something on this.

Talk to y'all later...Insha'Allah.

you dont even have to pray jumuah because it is not obligatory for the traveler but if you pray in Japan taht would be okay as well, and you can pray one jumuah.
I just an islamqa.com search about it.

"rather we should get invited at the wedding"

hmm...I would need to get separate cards printed under the name Justoju...I would also need to have a separate event so that my Hidaya world doesnt come in contact with my real-life world...I would also need to refer to my husband and family using pseudonyms and we would all need to wear niqabs (including the men)...

...I'll work on it...

To Brother Asif: We are going as fast as we can. We might be married within a month of our family's having met. Thats not bad for desis.
