Pumping up and letting go of knowledge

My frustration with Social movement theory is starting to get under my skin, especially the theory of framing processes, it deals with meanings and narratives and how they formed and all the variables they affect and all the variables it affects! I know way too more than what I wrote I stumbled on more factors very worthy of mentioning but more complex but am running out of time, I might just give it another 2 hours not more!

I just happen to know more, I think I am obsessed with getting everything in my theory chapter, but sorry my dear framing theory you just have to suck it up as much as I do.

on the other hand apart from writing and reading till after fajr and am on the verge of hallucination (maybe not but you get it) I have been doing great in the gym for a change, am getting bigger so it seems, not really but if i keep it up I will, I lifted insane weights with a friend, whose actually my youngest bro's friend from highschool! mashaAllah a beast! and a recent to practicing Islam( just from the previous ramadan), mashaAllah he got so religious, I never could have imagined it, my bro tells me he "changed 180 degrees"

we did some barbell rows @ 210 pounds 8 reps and 110 pounds dumbbell rows, , and other stuff by the time we got to dead lifts we were dizzy. on another note and another day I did 255 pounds bench press 8 reps and 232 10s, I m glad I go to the gym, else i loose my sanity, but I must admit am not that all into it as I use to be, maybe that will change soon inshaAllah.

yup, now I shall try to live with the fact that I may not include all what I know in the theory chapter, am fighting it for now, I won’t however pretend that I never stumbled upon it well maybe just for that chapter, but I will keep all what I know in mind and use them for the applications.

it sucks to know, and then not to be able to do for whatever reason. This is merely a chapter. I can only imagine of those who know the truth, know of Allah, of the day of judgment of Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him, and yet pretend and act as if they know nothing, what kind of self torture is that?

" Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened " Winston Churchill.

maybe for some they can’t keep pretending for long and thus you see sudden changes in their lifestyles. Indeed who those purify themselves for the sake of Allah have attained salvation.

Thenceforth were your hearts hardened: They became like a rock and even worse in hardness. For among rocks there are some from which rivers gush forth; others there are which when split asunder send forth water; and others which sink for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unmindful of what ye do

Has not the Time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been revealed ?

O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
And return to your Lord time after time and submit to Him before therecomes to you the punishment, then you shall not be helped.
And follow the best of (the courses) revealed to you from your Lord, before the Penalty comes on you - of a sudden while ye perceive not!-
Or (lest) it should say: 'If only Allah had guided me, I should certainly have been among the righteous!'-
Or (lest) it should say when it (actually) sees the penalty: 'If only I had another chance, I should certainly be among those who do good!'
(The reply will be:) 'Nay, but there came to thee my Signs, and thou didst reject them: thou wast Haughty, and became one of those who reject faith!
