REALLY BORED!

Assalamu-alaykum, Amigos, How are you?

Bored, bored bored! Ugh what a feeling. It’s one of those days I don't have anything to do. Its raining outside and everyone is away out. Its so boring, there is nothing to do but play on my computer!

The worst thing is I’m going to feel bad because I’ve wasted my whole day.

Time is precious and every second counts. Sometimes we don't realize it.

I’m going to switch off  my computer and do wudhu. I’m going to read Salah, read some Qur’an and recite the Surahs I know.

This will make my day worth while. So next time you feel lazy and cant be bothered. Try it and you will see how brilliant your day is.

Got to shoot - got salah to pray, no time to waste... See you next issue.        Penpal

 

GROWING UP FAST

‘Life is short’ how many times have you heard this? Often people only realise life is passing by when they get grey hair. Then they ask themselves where did my youth go? ‘Yesterday’ I was a kid and the next thing I know I am old.

We may be young now and think that we have loads of time to grow up, but time will pass so quickly that we will not realise it. Then you will look back and think what happened to my life, where has it all gone?

We will wish we had used our youth better. Guess what, we still have our youth now so we can use it better. If we waste your youth we will regret it, so think of ways you can use your youth properly. Time is life, use your time properly.

Life is short, so enjoy your life by doing good work; studying and practicing Islam and living as a good Muslim.

THE HONEYCOMBE

Imam Ghazali was a great scholar who lived many years after the Prophet (pbuh). He was a great revivalist, who taught the Ummah about Islam. He was a great teacher and was respected for his great wisdom and knowledge.

Imam Ghazali tells a story of a man walking in the jungle. A roaring lion ran towards him and the man ran as fast as he could to escape from it. He noticed a well in front of him and he jumped inside hoping to escape from the lion.

As he was falling inside the well, he grabbed onto the rope and saved himself. The man was so relieved but when he looked down he saw a big snake at the bottom of the well. It had its jaws wide open ready to swallow him up.

The man then looked up and saw two mice nibbling at the rope. A black mouse and a white were both chewing into the rope. The scary lion was still prowling outside the well.

The man’s heart was pounding as he wondered how he could escape from this. Then he noticed a honeycomb in front of him which had delicious honey dripping from it. He stuck his finger into the honey and put it inside his mouth. It was delicious and for a moment he forgot about the lion, the snake and the two mice chewing at the rope.

Imam Ghazali explained that the lion is like the angel of death which is always looming above us. The snake was like his grave which all humans will face. The black mouse and white mouse were like the day and night which is always nibbling at our life (the rope). The honey was like this dunya and with its sweetness makes us forget the purpose of our life and the reality of death.

DID YOU KNOW

The Qur’an is a guidance from Allah to all mankind. It gives us guidance on all aspects of our lives and encourages us to be proper Muslims.

Surah Al-Asr is only three verses but it puts the reality of life in a nutshell. Every line (or ayat) of the Qur’an has so much meaning and guidance. All we need to do is study it with an open heart.

Time is something that doesn't last
Time is something that runs out fast

Our Prophet is the best
He told us that life is a test

Time is something that money cant buy
It doesn't have wings but it can fly

Life might be as sweet as honey
There is more to life than fame and money

PENPAL REFLECTION

Assalamu-alaykum, we are all young and sometimes we forget that one day we will become old. Its something we put at the back of our minds. If we think about it, our dad or granddad was once little  just like us. They grew old and one day so will we. PP
