Three Thoughts

1- I saw this big red calculus book accidentally a couple of days ago..and then i had this sudden rush of flashbacks of all the times i had in college..I thought I got over it..I thought I stopped missing it..I think I am wrong..I'm going to hide this calculus book elsewhere.

2- I am on job hunting right now and i just want to remind myself..that its okay if I didnt get what I want right away..Its okay if i started working something I dont like at first..and most of all.."el arza2 beyad Allah"

3- I've been reading a book called "3an el fasad w seneeno" by Fahmy Howaidey. I didn't finish the book.Not that it didn't intrest me.On the contrary,I thought that i should have read it a long time ago(Just like that Pride & Prejudice book) . I found myself asking questions about this country and where are we heading? who is responible for all this corruption? To what degree am I responsible? Is this country that bad? Is there no law in the country that can get back people what they rightly own? Are humans that cheap in the eye of the government?what about the double standards we have dealing with people with power and money so forgivingly and those who have no "dahr yesnedhom" are to be mercilessly punished right away.

It reminded me of a hadeeth by our Prophet (PBUH):

إنما أهلك من كان قبلكم أنهم كانوا إذا سرق منهم الشريف تركوه، وإذا سرق منهم الضعيف أقاموا عليه الحد. وأيم الله لو أن فاطمة بنت محمد سرقت لقطع محمد يدها)
