I woke up at about 12:58am the next morning, I yawned, stretched and scratched my beard. The room was very frigid, though outside it was warm and humid. The air conditioner being on and at full capacity had a lot to do with that.

The first thing that came to my mind when I awoke from my slumber was Salah. “I have to pray”, that was all I could think about.

As I thought more about it I realized that I didn’t have any fard prayers to make up. I suppose that I’ll just do Tahhajud instead. Just because I did not have any compulsory acts of worship to fulfill does not mean that I cannot do supererogatory or Mustahaab acts of worship. After all, I am a Wali of Allah and in order for me to maintain my status I must continue to do extra worship.

I had to get up and take a full body shower because I was Junub. As I began to get up from the bed Cindy gently grabbed my arm.

Where are you going?”

I’m not going nowhere baby. I’m just going to get in the shower and pray real quick ok?”

Nooo.” She said.

I’m not going anywhere baby. I’ma be right here okay?”

She didn’t say nothing back, just slowly released her grip from my hand and closed her eyes. I then went in the bathroom and shut the door. Then I looked at the open window and thought for a minute. I opened the bathroom door and went back in the room to grab my pack of cigarettes. I then opened the bathroom door and went back in it,

I lit a single cigarette and smoked it, afterwards I got in the shower.
