2 Peas in a Pod

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Life is beautiful. I really can’t say that enough. :)
Had another beautiful night with my lovely brother and uncovered more similarities with him. We are both huge fans of Walking. We had finished a class together, had dinner, talked the whole way on the train (yes I completely forbid him to plug his ears with earphones exclaiming “Its such an antisocial activity! Talk Adiq! People don’t talk to each other anymore!”), laughing like we had no care in the world, and then upon reaching Pasir Ris, decided that the bus-stop was too near and we walked to the Downtown East bus-stop. Haha.
I love my talks and walks with my brother. I know people are probably sick of hearing me talk about my brother but really, last night was great. And I’m so grateful for him, I just felt this need to spread the love. :)
Another snippet of our conversation:
Adiq: Eh, I wanted to tell you something just now. I forgot..
Me: That you looove me?
Adiq: *rolls his eyes*
Me: What? That you saw a book you wanted to buy?
Adiq: No.. Argh, what is it..
Me: That you love me more now than 2 mins ago?
Adiq: Ya yaa every second I love you more.
Me: Awww so sweet! And I didn’t even have to make you say it.
Irritating, I know.
Our conversation last night ranged from Imam Mahdi AS, how we both had never ‘envisioned’ the Prophet SAW to be an old man (“He’s always a young, strong, handsome man, never old.” “Yeah yeah same! Me too!”), how we are both worried about the life we are going to inherit to our children haha, about our parents, school, Habib Ali al-Jifri (my brother’s a huge fan), books, classes, repentance, spirituality, Shiaism, Wahhabism, marriage, Yemen, our future, etc etc.
And then when we got home, we topped the beautiful night by him being my imam for isya’ prayers and then I read Surah al-Mulk for him and he read Surah an-Naba’ for me. :))
Thank You Allah. Bless our bond and make us grateful, humble servants.
