If Allah wills it

Nasrudin had saved up to buy a new shirt. He went to a tailor’s shop, full of excitement. The tailor measured him and said, “Come back in a week, and If Allah wills- your shirt will be ready.”

The Mulla contained himself for a week and then went back to the shop.

“There has been a delay. But – if Allah wills- your shirt will be ready tomorrow.”

The following day Nasrudin returned. “I am sorry,” said the tailor, “but it is not quite finished. Try tomorrow, and – if Allah wills- it will be ready.”

“How long will it take,” asked the exasperated Nasrudin, “If you leave Allah out of it?”

    Oh I understand his sentiments! This happens here ALL the time. Inshallah here means ‘whenever’!

      I have pet peeve with people who use the words consistently! My husband has learned that the one thing he had better remember when talking of things to be done is that if it is in his ability to do so, I don’t want to hear and Insha’Allah from him…
      Of course there are things out of our control; but goodness not everything!
