“Common sense is the most uncommon thing” – this quotable quote was told 2 me by my boss who I till 2date remember n respect like a best n most caring teacher. I was a junior executive of a bank n this foreign boss was my direct report. As I was given an monstrous responsibility at the onset 2 setup the treasury dept of the bank, we had 2 interact a lot in order 2 speed up our learning curves bcoz there were pressures 2 stay ahead of the competition. The meetings, several within a day, wud b short but intense bcoz he had a much larger role 2 play n give time 2 other depts of the bank.
In 1 such meetings if i recall rite I had submitted a write up earlier 2 him 2 approve the draft. When I looked at the write up I was genuinely surprised at his recommendations added 2 it. I looked up n asked him isn’t wot he has added common sense? The answer I received fm probably a 60yr old at that time was believe me as u go up u will find common sense is the most uncommon thing. Mashallah I didn’t hav 2 wait too long or go too much up 2 find the truth of wot he said.
Now after 22 yrs later of that conversation, thinking deeper n adding 1 more dimension 2 my thought ie., islam I get a much gloomier pic.. Does presidents n pms of USA n UK hav any common sense or truly any sense at all? They think thru knowledge of weapons manufacturing n know how of robbing other economies they hav elevated themselves 2 a plateau where no1 can reach 2 hold them by their forlocks. So they make up excuses n start war n kill innocent peoples n ask the corrupt journalists n think tanks 2 write up fancy (non understandable) word filled reports – 1st 2 show there was a valid coz of war n 2nd ly with almost perpetual kickback schemes thru their treasuries, 2 write up so called peace proposals or peace-in-progeess communiques taking various excuses.
When it comes 2 sex n sustainability of the human race these fools hav lost their common sense too. Otherwise how can homosexuality b legal n court approved? Just bcoz while they were killing n looting the innocents overseas, their friends probably 3% of the population demanded n few judges agreed! So all sorts of filths n immorality shud b made legal too in the same prosess by making demands n then use court, congress n president 2 make it legal. Frankly I can’t find any commonsense 2 this approach of running a country. Wot ever u call it ie., capitalistic democracy or freedom of choice (whether 1 wants 2 b a shytwan or b a human) it stinks n i abhor it n reject it with disgust.
Commonsense dictates majority will choose the best among them who will inshallah uphold decency, fairness n justice. Who will not b driven by greed but by humanity. N in matters like choosing partners again that makes commonsense. Oh! u British n Americans hav forgotten wot is the commonsense here? Ask yor parents how u came 2 this earth. Final commonsense is just don’t b compleacent in a Muslim society that there won’t b or there isn’t any conspiracy 2 hit our religion based values. So b vigilant n hit them hard bfor they start cropping in2 yor mind n destroy yor faith.
ie., in2 the biznesses of riba.
