It happened a long time ago. I was in school,the bell was rung. I was preparing to go and join the students of my school for prayer. I was barely out of the classroom door,when I noticed a frantic classmate of mine trying to wave out to me. I stopped for a fleeting moment. I was told she could not do her homework,will I help her.
I was torn between helping her or leave for prayer,I chose the latter. I excused myself by saying,’Naseem I’m sorry,I’m busy’. I left without explaining myself.
I felt terrible. Later that day,she told me she was punished and decided I can no longer be her friend. You see for me what’s more important to join the prayer or help her.I chose the latter. I ended up losing a friend.
