How many Muslims does it take to change a light bulb?
Zero. Electricity is biddah.
ROFL! I died.
Thanks for the sweet message <3
So my psychologist friend called me up today. She wanted to refer a case. A 15 yr old girl with HIV. I’m a trained and experienced HIV counselor. My first job was as a HIV counselor in one of the biggest government hospitals in Mumbai with a very high patient load. It was very challenging and depressing.
Anyway, since my friend has no experience dealing with such cases she thought I should take it up. It’s true that I’m experienced and trained but it’s been over a year since I have counseled an HIV patient. My current job profile involves providing psychological services to school children. But I think I will have to take this up. Do the preliminary counseling and then refer to an NGO which works with PLHAs (People living with HIV and AIDS) because it’s important for her to have a support group.
I will hold on to You for Your forgiveness,
And if You hold me for my sins,
I will hold on to You for Your pardon.
If You cast me into the Fire,
I will announce to its inmates that I love You.” —
In my attempts to impress people, I humiliated myself.
I then tried to impress God, and I impressed everyone, as well as God.
My acquaintances, friends and colleagues are very influenced by what I say. I don’t know why! And this has nothing to do with my profession. Psychotherapy is different from normal conversation. And people are very influenced by what I tell them in normal conversations.
They usually tell me that I give them insight into things which they haven’t thought of before or really set them thinking about things. This is not necessarily a good thing! I feel very responsible ever since I realized this. I think twice before saying anything!
