Another Friday Another Problem?

Every Friday I help set up for the congregational prayer at college. Something unexpected occurs every week. It is something we have come to expect. Today was no different. So, as I am walking in, I say to one of the managers, "Another Friday Another Problem". He responds,

"Another Friday Another Opportunity".

Indeed, in problem is opportunity. And all praise is due to Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Our amplifier completely, randomly, inexplicably, failed on us today. It couldn't be revived, despite us trying all of the following suggestions received from the congregation:

"Make Du'a."

"Say 'bismillah' and blow on it."

"Do istighfaar." (i.e. seek forgiveness)

It died with a violent spark but it's all good. Subsequently, so much good came out of it I wish I could share. Signs for a people who opportune.
