Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"...As for monasticism, it was invented by them; We did not ordain it for them, but (they adopted it) to seek Allah's pleasure, then could not observe it as was due. So We gave those of them who believed their reward. And many of them are sinners..." (57:27)

COMMENTARY: The word Rahbaniyyah (monasticism) is attributed to Ruhbaan. The words Rahib (singular) and Ruhban (plural) mean 'the one who fears'. After Prophet Esa AS transgression became common. In particular, the kings and the leaders publicly defied the laws of the Gospel. When the scholars and the righteous people among them attempted to stop them from doing evil deeds, they were put to death. Those that remained, felt that they would not be able to stop them, nor did they have the power of resistance. If they lived in society, there was every likelihood that their religion too would be destroyed. Therefore, they took upon themselves in earnest that they would give up all pleasures and comforts of this life including the legitimate ones. Thus they avoided marriage, abandoned any activity to earn livelihood and any effort to build homes, and took to the jungles, mountains and caves, or took to nomadic life in order to protect their religion and follow their religious duties freely and completely. They did all this out of fear of God. Therefore, they were referred to as Rahib or Ruhban. Their practice is referred to as Rahbaniyyah (monasticism).

Sometimes we're too focused on the screens in our palms...
that we forget to absorb that which encompasses...
our virtual existence built by our very own thumbs...
yet, the very thumb and palm He so intricately designed...
is a sign of His made to remind...
us that this world and everything in it...
is not yours or mine to keep.
It's not in our hands.

The boss accuses you of not keeping the office clean; you...
A. Clean the office while he supervises.
B. Tell him that you delegated the job, then fire the underling you supposedly gave the job to.
C. Clean the office again, but this time, you use your boss' face.

Scoring this test

Mostly A: You have nothing to worry about. They'll never fire you because you're a doormat.

Mostly B: You're not just going to keep your job, with your complete disregard for other peoples feelings, you'll positively shoot up the ladder of success. Congratulations! You're a real jerk.

Mostly C: You are a career kamikaze. The boss would have fired you long ago, but he's terrified of what you might do.
