Pump it up Homeboy, just don’t stop- Beastie Boys

I heard an interesting and heartwarming message this morning from an 11 year old, far wiser than myself and far greater in wisdom than faith than I.  Allahu Akbar.

This young man (chronologically “child”) demonstrated true gratitude and appreciation for Life and no fear of Death.  His words reminded me that there is no rational reason to “put off today what one can do tomorrow”, because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, but DEATH is.  Also procrastination is really a direct expression of lack of gratitude for the time God has allotted us here on this Earth until He truly awakens us at our death.

Yup!  We do not truly experience reality until after we “die”, therefore we should make the most of this temporary life in preparation.

Young Brenden said something that hit me hard and that was to “follow your dreams”.

Therefore we have decided to shift gears a bit and expedite the health and diet goals (IE. smoking and exercise) and enter into a new state in the morning.

A state simply called “Mujahid Mode” (yeah that’s my 1st middle name, how appropriate!).

I’ll save you newbies from “googling” it.

It means “soldier of God” (notice my capitalization, get it?) loosely, but I prefer to concentrate on the other definition in this case and that is “one who is a selfless fighter in the path of Allah engaged in struggle

May Allah reward Brenden and make his family’s burden light.

PEACE
