Good news : You are going to be promoted.
Bad news : You are not to leave whatever you are doing now.
In short, I was supposed to report to a new place and to cover new areas, a normal procession in civil service. The movement is designed so that you will encumber yourself with as much knowledge and experience and be well-equipped once you hold senior posts later in your career. The worst that could happen to a civil servant is to be trapped in one post for longer than necessary, doing the same job and becoming specialised in one field. If that happens, your career path will be cast in stone and you are doomed practically (I'm speaking purely on a logical conjecture, but I never discount the fact that Allah will eventually deal a good hand if you do your work sincerely and with all amanah).
At this point, I am really on the threshold of entering the least favoured path in the service.
What should have been good news turned out to be one of the more frustrating ones. Let's just hope that there's hikmah behind all this. Insya Allah...
