    Well I've never daydreamed that far ahead but I'd say you're still normal! :p

    What is truly weird, weird, is that weird is actually normal. If you, weird, normally act weird, then being weird is entirely normal, isnt it weird? Thus the state of being weird no longer is considered weird and is now considered normal. Weird, eh, weird?

    If we consider you, weird, to engage in weirdness that can either be normal weird, or abnormally weird, then, my dear weird, we deconstruct weird even further into states of normal. Sounds weird, doesn't it, weird? If a single act is normally weird, then it looses the essence of being weird, so weird in this case, weird, would be entirely normal. However, if a single act is abnormally weird, then can this be truly considered weird either, weird? If the normal state of weird is 'weird', then an abnormal state of weird would be 'normal'. Thus to be weird, weird, whether normally weird or abnormally weird is anything but weird and, in fact, entirely normal.

    That is what is truly weird, weird.
    Uhmm.. if talking about daydreams on the internet was weird to begin with - you deffinitely knocked it right off the scale. :s

      The Prophet (saw) said, Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost, then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be ruling and the last will be the salah.[1]

      The author of Sitoon as-Sultaniyah says about this Hadith: “It was the Prophet who tied together the knots of Islam, including the uppermost knot of ruling after he established the Islamic state…As mentioned by Imam Mawardi the leadership has been proscribed as the succession of the Prophet in protecting the deen and governing the societal affairs. In this respect – Imam Baidawi mentioned that the Imama/Khalifah is the succession from the Prophet in the establishment of the laws of the Shari’ah. So without the Imam the laws lie unapplied and the territory is not protected effectively. The hadith indicates that it is the uppermost knot that keeps the subsequent knots safe from being untied. This is since it is the ruler that is responsible to apply Islam in its entirety, to implement the limits proscribed by Allah and to protect the society. Imam Ahmed mentioned without an Imam (for the Muslims as their leader) there would be fitna, and the destruction of the symbols of Islam ending with the Prayer is a great fitna.[2]

          Yup, this is true. There are things I used to want 5 or 10 years ago that I no longer care about now. As you get older your dreams and priorities change.
