Last night I asked my wife
if she had submitted in all things
to the will of Allah
whereupon she loudly announced
that submission to me was quite arduous enough
and that no reasonable deity could possibly require more.
I was shaken by this pronouncement
and it caused me to reflect upon
how much wiser than myself my wife often is.
Starting tomorrow I shall begin a new spiritual discipline:
I shall submit in all things, spiritual and temporal,
to my wife
and I trust that Allah
at my new scrupulosity.
