Do You Miss Yourself?

Do you miss yourself?

The person you were before your first loss, before you had your first heartbreak, before you came face to face with the harsh side of this world, and all those double faced people?

Do you miss that version of yourself before all of this?

I know I don’t. I just miss the good old times I had, when I was naive.

Do You Know, Why a Dead Body Floats Over Water?

Do you know, why a dead body floats over water?

Because, in order to sink, you need to be alive

Knock, Knock “Who’s There?” “A Time to Recreate Yourself”

Assalam-o-Alikum,

      Brothers and Sisters, Friends and Fellows

You know, ‘Ramadan’ is just around the corner!! And it is about time that we get ready and start preparing our bodies and minds, if we desire a remarkable and blessed Ramadan. I know I do.

There was a time, when I was naive and missed many chances to take full benefit of this blessed month. It saddens me to remember those days. Though, I am still clueless about a lot of stuff. But at least now I am on the path, so, I guess I will get there some day, InshaAllah.

We, Muslims, should not think of Ramadan as a burden, because it is the best time of the year for us. You know why? Well, because Ramadan is like a prized chance given to us by Allah, a chance to purify our bodies, minds and souls, to strengthen our faith and beliefs, to rebuilt and wash the filth off ourselves. In similar words, it is a chance for us to change ourselves for the better. 

Ramadan is coming! When we say this, we usually mean, the month of fasting is here. But is that what Ramadan is all about? No doubt, fasting is a significant part of this time of year and also one of our religious duties, but, it doesn’t end here.

Many of you probably know all this, but reminder is always good. Right? Fasting is only 1% about not eating and drinking while 99% is about bringing your heart and soul closer to Allah. If you are going to carry on with your old, regular routine like not giving time to your prayers, not reciting Quran, sleeping all day, using foul and bad language, gossiping, being angry, wasting time in worthless activities that do not benefit you in strengthening of your faith and stuff like that; you know, you are not really performing your religious duty. You are just starving yourself. And Ramadan is not about starving yourself or going on a diet; it is about indulging yourself in your faith (imaan)  and making the most of it.

Fasting is an essential requirement needed to cleanse our body, soul and mind. Some of the benefits that we can get through fasting are:

  • A chance to create a deep connection with Allah.
  • Learn about patience and self-control.
  • Learn to strain ourselves from gossiping, backbiting, fighting, harming and indulging ourselves in any devilish activities.
  • A chance to reflect and improve oneself for the better.

The devil is going to be locked away for Ramadan, and then, it will be just us. I believe there is still good in us, so let’s aim to have a better Ramadan this year than the last one. Let’s aim and work towards it.

May Allah make this Ramadan, a turning point in our lives and accept all our prayers and worships in His path.

(Ameen)

You say, I am quite easy to read

Because I am nothing but an open book

If that’s so,

Then why do you keep getting me wrong?

 

You see only what I let you

You only see the outside me

The side, I show to the world

The other, I keep under wraps

 

There is a complexity inside

How deep it goes,

Even I can’t tell

Then how can you?

 

You think you know me well

Think again, pal

I might be an open book

But you aren’t just reading me right.

The Perks of Being a ‘Mystery’

Everybody is living a chapter or even chapters, that the world know nothing about. And there is nothing wrong with that ‘way of life’.

Not everyone deserves to know that much about you. Not everyone can understand that much about you. The less they know, the less they can use against you.

Want to be an interesting person? Choose to be a mystery than an open book. Keep people guessing.

Understanding Is What Matters

Sometimes people who don’t talk much about the reason behind their stressed face, the hollow look in their eyes; they are going through a lot. You don’t always have to know. Sometimes simple understanding and a hug is enough.

This is the Time!

This is the story of your life

A book with you on the cover

A movie starring you

 

What will be the next scene you want to add?

 

You got the page and pen

Let’s live the life that you will write for you

 

Because

This is the time

The time to step out and shine

This is the time to jump

Not caring to fall

Because what you know

You might just fly.

 

There are billion words for wall of fear

But you should rather build a fist of courage

And break through

 

Because

This is the time

The time to step out and shine
