Camels

Over the years, I’ve met a lot of people who subscribe to the power of wishful thinking. They all agree that if you set your mind on a goal, visualize it, and doggedly believe in it, it will come true. 

Trouble is, wishing rarely makes it so.   

Trust in Allah that your camel won’t run away when you dismount but, my dear friends, tether that creature to be sure. 

Let me tell you a story that illustrates my point. Four years ago, I was sitting at my desk working on a book of mine. It was Saturday afternoon. A bright and sunny perfect fall day in Colorado. The phone rang. It was my brother-in-law.  

He and his parents were attending an auction in Missouri to pick up some building materials. As it turned out, the farm where the auction was being held was also up for sale.
