My Weird (but Awesome) Dream

Photo by Umar Mita

This is a dream I had.

Out of anger, I punched a guy's face so hard that I might have cracked a few bones (hey relax, it's a dream). I ran away because I was feeling guilty. He ran after me.

Oh, the suspense!

Maybe I was too slow because the guy caught up with me in the end. So, I gave in. Plus, I knew that I deserved the punishment. I told the guy to punch me back in the face, just as hard as I punched him.

I was scared, because I knew it was going to hurt badly. I closed my eyes and waited for the fist.

The guy just gave me a nudge, and he smiled.

That was it. He didn't punch me back, even though in all honesty, I deserved that punch.

He forgave me instead.

I woke up, with tears down my cheeks.

  4. Nice entry. Abu Hurayrah narrated that Allaah's Apostle said: "The strong is not the one who overcomes people by use of his strength, rather he is the one who controls himself while in anger." [Al-Bukhaari]

  5. Awesome. But to forgive ain't that easy when one feel badly hurt. Walaupun tak related, teringat kisah yg mana seorang lelaki datang kepada Rasulullah SAW sebelum baginda wafat. Ukasyah namanya. I bet you know the rest. (:

  9. To FORGIVE. One of the most difficult thing to do, but the one who does so is the one with most strength.
