On point!

I don't like to brag (who am I kidding, we all like to brag, we just say we don't) but I am particularly proud of my accomplishments tonight considering the kind of day I had. I won't get into that.

I will keep this post brief because I want to relish in all of my free time but I will say that even though I worked until 6:15, I still managed to do some cleaning at home, exercise and take care of the "Islam" 20 minutes, cook dinner, eat, and bake a fantastic (and traditionally complicated) surprise for someone all before 9:00.

YES!! Alhamdulillah.

Willy doesn't really care about my productivity so I hope you do!
The rest of this will be light and easy, I pinkie swear.

I thought about putting it off because I was so tired after my long day following no sleep last night but I fought the demons and made myself use the elliptical machine for 20 minutes. Then while walking around the apartment to "release the lactic acid buildup" or whatever, I watched some good video clips.

See? That wasn't so bad.


I watched some random lectures on YouTube which had the word "funny" in them. I wanted some lighthearted study today and while they all had some jokes, the message was overall pretty serious in all of them. Allah does not want, need, or reward hypocrites or those who are too arrogant to follow his advice for how to live. Please watch all three—I think they are great for people of all faiths and beliefs.

This one has a great argument for how Islam could never have been spread by the sword:

Here, Kemal el-Mekki gives one fantastic reason for abandoning music. Shocking story at the end!

And our very sincere but funny Br. Nouman Ali Khan has a quick reminder about why all Muslims NEED to learn Arabic:

Enjoy! Learn! Comment!!
