From a ‘Muslim in Kuffar’s Mindset’ to a Muslim, a gradual change of the ‘Way of Life’ – SNEEZING
I used to sneeze.
Of course, it’s a human thing, so, everybody does it too.
But I learned a special type of sneezing, which is, I sneezed, people around me jumped off their positions.
I learned it from one of my bosses. He was an American. (Not giving his name for privacy reasons).
When he sneezed in his glass-door room, entire office noticed a mild earthquake.
I liked it.
So, I learned from him.
Some stuff I learn very quickly.
In my school ages, I changed my handwriting 3 times within a year because I liked the other one better.
I always changed for better, I always adopted the better.
Anyways, that’s a different story.
So, I went through 4 stages of sneezing.
Here is how!
Phase 1: Time duration: 43 years:
Born in a Muslim family, lived and worked in the ‘Muslim’ land but the Ways were from the Kuffar.
So, I sneezed, I used to say ‘Excuse me’. And I was excused, you know!
Then Allah guided me.
Phase 2: Time Duration: 2 years.
I lived and worked among the Kuffar.
So, I sneezed, I used to say ‘Excuse Me’ first and then I added slightly, in a low voice ‘Al-Hamdulillah’ later.
Phase 3: Time duration 1 year:
I still live and work among the Kuffar.
So, I sneezed, I used to say ‘Al Hamdulillah’ first and then added ‘Excuse Me’ immediately.
Phase 4: Time Duration – Since 2017
So, I sneeze now, I say ‘Al-Hamdulillah’, and that’s it! I don’t add the Kuffar’s Ways any more.
Because I am simply a Muslim now. Sometimes some Kafir notices it and thinks….
You know what could they think!
But who cares!
I don’t follow the Kuffar’s Ways anymore when I have a CLEAR Ways prescribed by my Rabb!
By the way, now I suppress my sound of sneezing, because my teacher, My Rasul, sallillahu Alaihi Wa Sallam taught me that. (Tirmidhi 2745, Hasan)
I don’t follow the Kuffar, anyways!
