We come and go just like ripples in a stream...

So its finals time for me and of course I'm sitting here doing everything under the sun... except study. I'll get back to it soon enough, God-willing (Insha'Allah).
I just don't want to think about circuits, who wants to think about circuits anyways? *Sigh*
Ok so here's something I actually saved a few days ago to share on this blog, cause I liked it a lot. Its like your general reminder about life being short and keeping your eyes on the BIGGEST picture (returning back to your Creator one day). But usually these things are written very dramatically (not saying that it shouldn't be thought of in a dramatic way because yes of course its very important) and what I found here was so different. Enough with the intro, just read it here:

The Great Journey TICKET: One-way (return ticket not available) COST: absolutely free RESERVATION: confirmed ELIGIBILITY: Tickets will be issued to the following: NAME: Child of Adam IDENTIFICATION: piece of clay ADDRESS: Surface of the Earth DETAILS OF JOURNEY:

* Departure Point: Anywhere on Earth
* Destination: Second World
* Hotel to be temporarily accommodated!: two meters space
* Duration: few seconds or few minutes
* Time of Departure: Time of Death

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS:

* All passengers are requested to keep in mind that the tickets are non-negotiable and non-transferable. Therefore everyone must be ready and keep an eye out for the pilot of the plane -HAZRAT IZRAFIL- THE ANGEL OF DEATH.

* For more information, read instructions..... to be found in the Holy Quran and the Sunnah (the practices of the last prophet Muhammad, Peace be Upon Him). You can also consult the learned Ulama (scholars).

* IT IS IMPORTANT this is done as soon as possible. You are reminded that no oxygen mask will be given as it is not required, in fact your respiratory system will be closed down before the journey begins.

LUGGAGE:

Even though each plane carries only one passenger, restrictions are imposed on the luggage that can be taken with you. You are allowed to carry 5 meters of white clothes and a small amount of cotton. The real luggage must be good deeds, good conduct, time spent in inviting mankind to good deeds and prohibiting evil, Ilm obtained and used properly, children raised and educated to be good Muslims.

Apart from these and luggage of these types, other luggage will be at your own risk.There is no need for any boarding pass, passport or other travel documents, just get ready. To get ready.... attendance of the 5 daily prayers in the Masjid (Mosque) or with Jamaat (congregation) is highly recommended.Study the Quran and Sunnah and put them into practice.

This ticket may be called in at any time so prepare now!'The pleasures of this life will end with this life. Whereas your good deeds will bring YOU eternal happiness.'

O and everyone, will you please repeat after me: "Please Allah, make R.M. successful in her exams so that she never ever has to look at this subject, ever again. Ameen."

Thank you! =D
