Ramadan Mubarak

The Holy month has finally come. Now, let us do the best we can to purify our faith by coming closer to Allah. Remember to spend time with your family and friends. Remember to love one another and give charity. I wish my brothers and sisters a blessed Ramadan❤

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

لَنْ تُؤْمِنُوا حَتَّى تَحَابُوا أَفَلا أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى مَا تَحَابُونَ عَلَيْهِ

You will never have faith until you love each other. Shall I tell you what will make you love each other?

They said, “Of course, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said:

أَفْشُوا السَّلامَ بَيْنِكُمْ فَوَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لا تَدْخُلُونَ الْجَنَّةَ حَتَّى تَرَاحَمُوا

Spread peace between yourselves. By the one in whose hand is my soul, you will not enter Paradise until you are merciful to others.

Ended 1. Semester with a smile

Just finished first semester in university. I study both biology and chemistry and it feels great to have a little holiday. It has been a great journey. I gained a lot of friends and learned a lot. When I first started studying biology and chemistry I was in a lot of doubt. It was really tough, and I would consider to give up and study something else, but O was wrong. Even though I am not the most intelligent person in the world I still enjoy what I study. I don’t think that the next semester will be easier or the next after that. However, as I gain more knowledge it becomes less burdening and more enjoyable. 🙂

 

This Long Path

As I walk through this life

I wonder where this path will lead me to

This path seems long

But it is a path I must cross

Perhaps there is something for me

Something that waits for me

I take this long path

Knowing that God is watching over me

Like He watches over all of us

I am not alone on this long path

I have God

He is all I need

I no longer wander around on this long path

I have a Friend with me now

And He is all I need

It is He, Who created me

It is He, I turn to

It is He, I shall return to

Say, “He is Allah , [who is] One,” (Quran; Surah Al-Ikhlas: verse 1)

What’s next?

Now it’s settled that the next president of the United States of America is Donald Trump, what can be done now?

First and foremost I should inform you that I do not live in America, but in Denmark. Can I relate to you? Yes I can. For we people here in Denmark don’t have the most fit leaders in the country. They are certainly not wise, and they also like to discriminate minorities, especially muslims. Denmark also had made headlines regarding refugees and so on.

What is my point in all of this?

We live in a time of ignorance. We live in a time full of greed and arrogance. Our leaders around the world are more concerned about themselves rather than us. Is there a way we can change that? Well, perhaps there’s an answer to our problem.

If the people are upright, then their kings will remain upright. If they turn away from righteousness, then their kings will also turn away from righteousness.

Ibn Al-Qayyim

The leaders are the reflection of the people. In other words, we need to have the qualities we want in a leader. If we want a leader, who is kind, generous, righteous, honorable and just a person of good, then we have to be that as well.

We can no longer aspect our leaders to fix the world. If we want to make the world a better place, then we have to become a better people. It will not be easy, and the progress will be slow. But at the end of the line it’ll be worth it.

There is always hope, but we have to believe in it, and we need to be the hope.

May Peace be with You

 

 

Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator

Greed has poisoned men’s souls

Has barricaded the world with hate

Has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed

We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in

Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want

Our knowledge has made us cynical

Our cleverness hard and unkind

We think too much, and feel too little

More than machinery, we need humanity

More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness

Without these qualities life will be violent

And all will be lost

 

A Better People

In a time full of chaos

I wonder

Will it ever end?

I believe it will

Not today

Nor tomorrow

But one day

When we end our hatred

towards one another

When we end our greed

for this world

When we start being grateful

And stop complaining

When we start loving each other

Because that is our nature 

And love should be our nature

 

This world will be a better place

When we become a better people

Dear France

Muslim women are not oppressed. We cover ourselves, because we want to please our Lord. We cover because we love our Lord. Is that a crime? Forcing a woman to take off her clothes is equally oppressing when forcing a woman to cover!

What you are doing is oppression against muslim women. You can’t call yourself a Nation of Liberty, when you take away someones rights.

Although, I’m not surprised by these actions done by France, I’m still disgusted by it.
