He is my vein.

Assalamualaikum warahmatuLLAHi wabarakatuh.

اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم

One of my oral questions for Anatomy yesterday was;
"What are the branches of Femoral Artery?"

Do you what I replied?
"Can I give you branches of Popliteal Artery instead?"

AlhamduLILLAH 'ala kulli ni'mah, the doctor agreed.

So I enumerated.

Now, let us relate.

Arteries, veins and... surprise surprise, marriage.



Cougggh reflex.

Truth to be told, in our bodies, we have not only one type of vessels functioning as blood pathways; we have two. Indeed. Arteries (to carry oxygenated blood except Pulmonary Arteries) and its accompanying veins (to carry de-oxygenated blood except Pulmonary Veins).

Do you notice the different in names of the vessels?

The strange thing is, the vessels (let us take arteries for example here) are connected to each other. All are from one -- dividing into many, many branches.

If you feel you clavicle (i.e your collar bone), the artery located under it is called Subclavian Artery. However, when you move your hand towards your axilla (i.e your armpit), the name changes to Axillary Artery.

For serious.

It is the exact same artery, with few branches coming out of it.

And that's just two of the names.

This is few names of the arteries we are learning. Wachaa!
Imagine yourself as an artery. Or imagine anyone, it's fine by me.

An artery has its starting point. So do us.
An artery will find its end. So will us insyaALLAH.

Along the course, an artery will give out branches. Sometimes, it supply the muscles it goes through with oxygenated blood, sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes, the artery will have a "friend" -- the nerve.
They will arise side by side, sometimes the nerve at the front and most of the times, they split.

It all, occur in our life.

All these years of living, we have our important events and such.
We have problems to solved, dreams to be achieved.

Sometimes, we had enough.

Sometimes, we continue the journey in a different way.

We will meet hundreds, perhaps thousands of people along our path.
But no one, will ever stay forever by our side.

We will, find ourself eventually alone.

But we have to remember, for every artery, there is an accompanying vein.

The artery started from head to toe (heart to limbs to be exact), in contrast, the vein started from bottom to top.
Also, the vein has tributaries (i.e branches in arteries).
Courses and all.

The most important thing, it always, always, accompany its corresponding artery.
Except for some isolated cases where the name of the vein is totally different such as Cephalic Vein.

So, whatever you are going through, whether it is easy or I-just-want-to-die-kind-of-hardship, just... be patient.

I know it is easy to say. And type.

But, if you are looking for - the one -, if you are waiting, just know, he or she is going through almost exactly the same thing.

"Women impure are for men impure, and men impure for women impure
and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity:
these are not affected by what people say:
for them there is forgiveness, and a provision honourable." 24:26

Wait-a-minute, I am not exactly an-angel-like person.
Does that mean I don't have any chance to marry a good person?


The answer is just a few verses behind the verse above.

"...but ALLAH does purify whom HE pleases..." 24:21.

And few verses after.

"And whoever repents and does good has truly turned to ALLAH with an (acceptable) conversion." 25:71

Nabi Luth 'alaihissalam is a Prophet, yet his wife did not accept his preaches.
Asiah is one of the best women, yet she is the wife of Pharoah.

ALLAH knows what is the best, so we have to try our best.

I am an artery.
And he who ALLAH created for me is my vein.

But we still are finding our capillaries,
so that when it comes the time we have to connect with each other,
insyaALLAH the anastomosis will be perfect.

May we find our veins at the time HE wants us to find it.
