Introspection, Just forward a post from Hafiz Ayaz Ali Qureshi

Funny how a $100 ‘looks’ so big when taken to mosque, but  
so small when taken to the mall. 


           Funny how long it takes to pray ‘TARAWEEH’ for an hour,  
but how quickly a team plays 90 minutes of soccer.


           Funny how long a couple of hours spent at the mosque  
seem, but how short they are when watching a movie.

           Funny how people can’t think of a ‘DUA’ to say when they  
pray, but don’t have difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a  
friend.

           Funny how people get thrilled when a football game goes  
into extra time, but complain when a ‘KHUTBAH’ is longer than the  
regular time.

           Funny how hard it is to read an ‘AIATH’ in the holy  
Quran, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a best selling novel.

           Funny how people want to get a front seat at any game or  
concert, but scramble to sit in the back of a mosque.

           Funny how hard it is for people to learn the simple  
shariah, well enough to tell others, but how simple it is for the  
same people to understand and repeat gossip.

           Funny how people believe what the newspaper says, but  
question what is written in the Quran.

           Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do  
not have to believe, think, say or do anything.

           Funny how you can send a thousand ‘jokes’ through e-mail  
and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages  
regarding Allah, people think twice about sharing.
