Looking For Huda; I Ramble: 8 October 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

I am pleased to report that setting my silent alarms faster actually helps!

I could finally find the time for me to perform my prayers at work because I was able to quickly wrap up the task I was working on before proceeding to pray.

There were occasional blips where I would miss one prayer. So now I’m now working on ensuring that I get zero missed prayers.

I really do not know how to explain the uniqueness of my position at work. Maybe it would be easier if I describe myself as a key personnel that is not indispensable. Anyone may still replace me. The workplace will never die without me. It will still carry on. Business as usual. So this is one of the hard truths that motivate me to not compromise my spirituality.

Yeah, colleagues keep looking for me sometimes, even during moments that are inconvenient for me. Like when I am trying to eat or when I am trying to take a piss.

I guess it is a good thing I do not have to look for myself. I just need to look for the way out of each of my struggles.

I hope work will be bearable today. I gotta pull a longer shift for a few days this week so I can attend my family members’ birthday party this Saturday.

And Allah is All-Knowing. – MM
