So I was about to go to sleep and tell my friends to wake me up at Fajr when the electricity went. This doesn’t happen usually at GIKI so most of us came out of the rooms. I turned off the light and fan switches, wore my sandals, turned the torch on in my awesome Nokia mobile having a torch that works, picked up a packet of Catty Chins (Cheese) by Super Crisp (man they’re yummy) and went out of my room.
I sat for a while outside on the hostel stairs looking towards the sky (crazy about stargazing). It was quite dark and it seemed really nice, so calm and serene. And I thought to myself that what would it like be at the time of the Prophet (SallAllaahu Alaiyhi Wasallam)? They would have this peace everyday. No pollution, clear sky, no internet to keep them distracted, all connected to nature you know. It must have been amazing. So I finished my snack and went to the mosque. There was no one there at that time. After a while a junior came and we talked a bit and the Azaan started in different mosques around us. So we decided since the guy who usually gives it is not here yet we should go ahead. So for the first time in 4 years of my stay in GIKI, I gave the Azaan. It felt good Alhamdulillah except for the fact that there was no electricity!
Anyway, I lied down there for a while and that guy went out. I could feel that there were mosquitoes gathering around me. I started feeling itchy and knew they were biting. Then the light came and I saw them close to me. First my expression was:
And I then I saw 3-4 sitting on my foot and I’m like
But I realized they must be a lot so I stood up and to no surprise there were quite a lot roaming around me. So I ran like crazy (not literally of course)…
After Namaz now I came back to my room and started counting the red spots that I could see on my hands and feet. To my surprise I have 67 (THREE LESS THAN SEVENTY) mosquito bites on my hands and feet alone (these are the ones I can see and count). Wonder what they did to the rest of me.
But there was only one conclusion this could lead to…. THEY LOVE ME!
Now I better get ready to leave for Rawalpindi. But first, gotta have those parathay…
Have a blessed day. Assalam u alaikum :)
Assalam u Alaikum!
So we’re starting a poetry section on this blog. I’m Omer Shahid, a student of BS in Mechanical Engineering from GIKI, and I would be running this page In sha Allah. I started writing poetry when I was in Class 7 and after that I never really payed any attention to it, lol. Until last summer, when I wrote a few poems and thought of writing a book but I didn’t have much support. But now, a month ago, I found out about this amazing organization Youth Club, whose purpose is to make this society a better place by inspiring positive change in the Youth of today. And I can confidently say they’re doing their job! Since EVERYONE there is so inspiring masha Allah and they push you to discover yourself and find what you’re good at, keeping religion as the main ingredient. So I had no choice but to become a member of YC, and now I’ve written many poems recently and would continue to do so insha Allah. =)
