A joke

An Imam was selling his horse in the market. An interested buyer came

to him and requested if he could get a test drive. The Imam told the man that this horse is unique. In order to make it walk, you have to say Subhanallah. To make it run, you have to say Alhamdulillah and to make it stop, you have to say Allahu Akbar. The man sat on the horse and said Subhanallah. The horse started to walk. Then he said Alhamdulillah and it started to run. He kept saying Alhamdulillah and the horse started running faster and faster. All of a sudden the man noticed that the horse is running towards the edge of the hill that he was riding on. Being overly fearful, he forgot how to stop the horse. He kept saying all these words out of confusion. When the horse was just near the edge, he remembered Allahu Akbar and said it out loud. The horse stopped just one step away from the edge. The man took a deep breath, looked up towards the sky and said Alhamdulillah!


I’m somewhat busy with coursework and revision for my exams. The reason I didn’t post anything yesterday. We’re nearing the end of this semester and with that my first year at uni. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do next year, whether I’ll stay at Bradford or re-apply for Nottingham University or if I manage to make the jump back to Germany. My German teacher(she’s from Frankfurt) at Djanogly comes to my mind who’s been here for over 30 years wanting to go back but once you built yourself something in one country it’s hard to go back. InshaAllah I don’t have to wait that long 🙂

Wa Salam
