Well I have heard from a reliable person that there is a saying of Imam Ali(as) that when you want to know how much a person likes you, you must look in your heart and try to gauge how much you like that person, that person likes you as much as you like him/her.
It’s a very famous hijab store in South Bombay where you get wellstitched customized hijab. i went there alone to get my coat stitched And ofcourse they wanted my measurements. So I was like you can ask a female assistant to take my measurements. To my surprise the owner said that there aren’t any female asiistants to take my measurements! I was like,” what! I am not going to let the male tailor (the master, as the head tailor is called here in India) do it.”. So then they had no choice but to make my coat without my measurements.
And then when my coat finally got stitched it was a disaster and I had a mini arguement with him. I told him it was his fault that he didn’t keep a female assistant, afterall it’s a hijab shop! The owner was quiet surprised by my strong stance. He was like,”Madam, No one thinks like you do. All my customers are ok with letting a male assistant take their measurements.”
Anyway,the issue was solved with him agreeing to do alterations but he charged me for it(which I thought was unfair!).
Afterwards, he was making my bill, he asked me for my name.
I said Rizvi. So he chuckled and said more to himself than to me,”A Sayyeda, I should have known!”
I have realized that I never use tumblr to discuss all my achievements or the fun things which happen in my life or the good things.
I just use it to whine and rant. It’s just a place where I write my problems.
Anyone going through my tumblr will think my life is full of problems. Which will actually be incorrect.
I have many problems but Allah has blessed me in many ways and many things.
Alhamdulillah. I think I am better off than most people and I have a lot to be thankful for.
I’ve done something really stupid and unintentionally screwed up my friends life in a major way. Why?
I wish I had a time machine and could go back and undo everything :(
I didn’t know about the marriage hadith.
It’s a really hot sunday afternoon. very boring. everyone at home is quite irritable. I wish we had an AC.
