“Hold on to the rope of God in collectivity. Don’t let yourself fall apart.”
It is quoted from Al Qur’an (note to self: must get the reference on the exact chapter and verse).
We think we are in this together. Well, not really. At least, not the way we think it is.
How about this approach: Each of us holds on to the rope of God. We face God individually. Then let Him arrange how we interact between us and how relate to one another. Trust that He is the Best Arranger.
The friendship that grows from there would, God willing, be true friendship, through Him. We would be companions to one another in the path of God. How sweet is that.
By this time, some of you might be wondering what the h*ll has happened to her (meaning, me) with all this talk. Chill out, I’d say. Give me another two minutes and my wit and sarcasm would be back before you know it. Then you’ll be sorry :p
