Bismillah, wasalatu wasalamu ala Rasoolilah, ama ba’d.

Wise scholar once said… “If your brother can’t reach into your pocket and take what he needs without permission, then this is not brotherhood” or something very similar to this. Now please don’t misunderstand me, not everyone’s supposed to have their hand in your pocket, but it’s a pretty bad sign when no one does.

When was the last time we walked up to someone and said “I love you for the sake of Allah”? Probably yesterday or even today right? Alhamdulilah, we got the lip service part down, but when was the last time we extended our pockets? Now I understand our dilemma, most of us are students and school has probably emptied out our pockets, but the last time I checked (and trust me, I checked) our cell phone address books are still full as ever. So the next time you have 5 minutes of free time, call a brotha (or sista) up and check up on them. You never know, you might actually ‘enjoy’ talking to that person.

JazakAllahu khairan for reading. May Allah accept from us our good deeds and pardon our sins. Ameen!
