We all are in a sense managing to beautify two different resumes throughout our lifetimes.

The first resume, i.e. for the Here, adapts to various stages/aims of our lives with two of the foremost importance being the job-search-resume, and the spouse-search-resume (actually with my limited vision, I couldn’t think of any other :>).

The second resume, i.e. for the hereafter, goes above the level of worldly aims. It’s the one that we are preparing to strengthen our case when we would face Allah SWT. His decision on this resume would be final and unquestionable. Allah SWT would be the only one to decide on this resume, unlike all of our worldly resumes that we forward to numerous potential candidates (wives and companies). May Allah decide in favor of us all, and may we be blessed with the shadow of His Throne and Janat-ul-firdous, ameen.

Recently, Alhamdolillah, I added one item in each of my poor little resumes! For the job-search-resume, I was blessed and honored when one of my research works got accepted for publication in a prestigious journal, and presentation in a highly competitive conference; Alhamdolillah. I am also offered a decent grant to go and present the paper, and on my way, to visit Pakistan 🙂 I never deserved any part of it at all, .. may Allah SWT make it good for my deen. I was thinking but wasn’t sure about how much of this job-search-resume, I am supposed to copy-paste to my spouse-search-resume, but I really hate the idea. Anyways, these two documents should remain mutually exclusive (in my geek terms)!

Now for the ultimate resume-for-hereafter – I’ve memorized Surah Naba 😀 Yessssss! It took me a while, but it helped me to figure out my pace in this regard and I am making sure to continue to progress despite the stupid well-known ‘busy schedule’. I’ve already started Surah Naziat, which is apparently a little easier, Inshallah, I’ll keep up the pace.

That’s it :> asalamalaikum.
