I don`t know a lot, but there are a few people whom take praying five times daily, very seriously. Why shouldn`t they, when it is one of the foundation of Islam. When one tries to pray regularly one becomes more spiritual and more close to Allah Subhanawuatalah. So it`s a great thing. Though if the person is quite young they do meet a few obstacles in the way to spirituality. For instance in the most schools in Norway it isn`t allowed to pray at school. Not whether you are christian or hindu or muslim, they have the same rule for all. I think that being a Muslim/Muslimah we should follow the laws of the country we live in, as long as it doesn’t collide too much with our Islam, to a certain extent. If it`s not allowed to pray at your school, and you want to pray, don`t be too shy asking for permission. You can say things like that in other religion they can pray whenever they want, but in Islam we have five daily prayers at a special time every day. If we miss one prayer, we are going against our own religion. Therefore one should be allowed. you can say that the schools can make a few rules that its only permissible to pray in the school-breaks so that they don`t miss any education. Giving the muslims a room and a blanket to pray shouldn`t be any problem. Otherwise they wouldn`t allow it any university.What is so strange is that at the University of Oslo, they have their own prayer room for the muslims there. They even have halal food at the canteen. If you are a lot of muslims don’t shy away from fighting for your rights, that bring you closer to your Lord. When they can give permission to one of the biggest Universities in Oslo, which is a School, why can`t one give permission at other scools as well? What make those schools any different? They aren`t any different and rules can be negotiated but I don`t want any Muslim/Muslimah to break a rule, because that would go against what Islam teaches us. Bring in the parents and talk with the management at the school you are going at. If you want to ask permission at your work, you can say that you`ll work the extra minutes it takes to pray. In that way they shouldn`t have anything against it. If they have a lot of space they can give you your own room, if not, then pray where the space is available and without interruption or disturbance. InshaAllah you will get permission, ameen summa ameen.

Sometimes when one is going home from work or just outside, one notices things about others that are good and other things that aren`t that good. Each Muslimah tries her best to follow Islam, the Sunnah and Quran, but even so there are so many things nowadays that people may find hard to follow. For instance is there any girl/lady nowadays whom doesn`t wear perfume before she goes out of her house. Even though our Prophet has restricted us from using it outside, probably because it attracts men. The Prophet has said:

If one of you attends the Masjid (Mosque) let her not touch perfume

Even in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia and Dubai it is very common to see a girl in full black cover (Abaya, hijab, niqab) although she is wearing perfume. This is so sad. As long as we don`t talk about our mistakes how on earth will we be able to correct them. I am not perfect and before I started using hijab, I also used perfume. Though when the hijab started I also quit with that bad habit as well. As long as one is indoor and not going outside use as much perfume as you want. But when you, as a Muslimah takes your first step outside it should be without perfume. Why do you use perfume? Who is it for? Ask yourself that question before you go near it next time you are going to use it.

Another thing that irritates me whenever I`m outside and see other Muslimah`s is that they were heals, which in itself is perfectly alright and quite cool. But when we start wearing heals that makes a noise when we walk, we also attract a lot of attention from the opposite gender, which is prohibited because it arises fitnah.

If one needs to smell nice one can do that without using perfume, one can use cream that has a nice scent without perfume, instead of perfume. Not using perfume doesn`t doesn`t mean that one can`t have a fresh scent on oneself. Of course the Prophet has always talked about having a good hygiene, at a time when it wasn`t taken seriously by anyone. Our Prophet (pbuh) used to do Miswak after every time he had eaten. Nobody does this nowadays, we just use a gum, though it may not have halal ingredients at all. And so we talk about our prayers not being answered?

Nobody is perfect and each and every have their own faults, but if we try our best to single out the faults and try to become more pious, what can be wrong with that? ūüėČ

Nrk¬†har¬†i¬†de siste¬†dager¬†vist¬†en krimserie¬†som omhandler¬†pakistanere¬†p√•¬†sitt¬†v√¶rste¬†uten¬†at det har¬†grobunn¬†i¬†noe¬†sannhet. Det er en krim-serie¬†taxi. Den handler om at pakistanske¬†taxidrivere¬†snyter¬†og samtidig¬†som den omhandler¬†√¶resdrap¬†og forhold¬†mellom¬†kvinner. Det er helt¬†absurd at nrk¬†sender et program som skaper¬†mer fremmedhat¬†mot taxin√¶ringen¬†og et bilde¬†av pakistanere¬†som ikke¬†gjenspeiler¬†seg¬†i¬†virkeligheten. Det v√¶rste¬†av alt er at noen¬†norskpakistanere¬†har¬†til og med satt¬†seg¬†villige¬†til √•¬†opptre¬†i¬†filmen. Uten¬†√•¬†tenke¬†seg¬†om hvilket¬†bildet¬†de viser¬†av oss¬†pakistanere. Og uten¬†√•¬†tenke¬†p√•¬†at dette¬†vil skape¬†st√łrre¬†problemer¬†for pakistanere. Folk kan tro¬†at alle¬†taxisj√•f√łrer¬†snylter¬†eller¬†at de andre¬†temaene¬†som blir¬†tatt¬†opp, er vanlig¬†i det norsk-pakistanske¬†milj√łet. Noe som ikke¬†er sant. Selv¬†om det kanskje¬†kunne¬†gjelde¬†noen¬†f√•¬†er det ikke¬†slik¬†blant¬†majoriteten. Det v√¶rste¬†av alt er at det er en norskpakistaner¬†som st√•r¬†bak¬†filmen¬†som noen¬†mener¬†er hans¬†oppgj√łr¬†med det pakistanske¬†milj√łet¬†etter¬†√•¬†ha hatt en d√•rlig¬†far under oppveksten. Han har¬†likevel¬†ingen¬†menneskerett¬†til √•¬†henge¬†ut de norskpakistanerene¬†som bor¬†i Norge av den grunn. Vi norskpakistanere¬†lager ikke¬†filmer¬†av nordmenn¬†som viser¬†et feil¬†bilde¬†av realiteten. En slik¬†film hadde¬†helt¬†sikkert¬†ikke¬†heller¬†f√•tt¬†tillatelse¬†til √•¬†bli¬†vist¬†p√•¬†NRK¬†fordi¬†det ikke¬†selger. Mens de fleste¬†filmene¬†som skaper¬†mer fremmedfrykt, selger¬†som varmt¬†hvetebr√łd. Det er synd¬†at det skal¬†v√¶re¬†slik¬†og NRK¬†burde¬†tenkt¬†seg¬†bedre¬†om f√łr¬†de viste¬†krimserien. Det er flere¬†som er dypt¬†skuffet¬†over regiss√łren¬†og synes¬†det er feil¬†√•¬†generalisere¬†p√•¬†denne¬†m√•ten. Det er nemlig¬†det som blir¬†gjort¬†n√•r¬†det blir¬†viste¬†et feil¬†bilde¬†av et samfunn. Jeg¬†h√•per¬†vi pakistanere¬†kan komme¬†sammen¬†og klage¬†dette¬†til likestillingsombudet¬†eller¬†NRK¬†slik¬†at disse¬†s√•kalte¬†nordmennene¬†som har¬†hatt en f√¶l¬†oppvekst¬†ikke¬†legger¬†skylden¬†p√•¬†hele samfunnet¬†for det. Det er helt¬†uakseptabelt!

Det er spesielt vanlig blant asiatere at de har vanskelig for √• ta selvkritikk. Det gjelder nok ikke alle men mange. Man skal vite det at n√•r man tar opp et samfunnsproblem er det ikke for √• kaste skitt p√• andre. De aller fleste mennesker har gode hensikter og tar opp et samfunnsproblem for √• rette det opp. Rett og slett for at de vil at alle skal ha det bra og at de ikke skal m√łte problemer i livet. S√• derfor istedet for √• kaste skitt p√• andre n√•r de tar opp et samfunnsproblem er det viktigere at man g√•r dypere inn i det og ser hvilke √•rsaker som ligger bak til at det oppst√•r og hjelper hverandre til √• fjerne de hindringene folk m√łter. Hvis v√•r generasjon greier √• ta bort hindringene v√•re foreldre m√łtte da vi var sm√• barn og InshaAllah barnet v√•re greier √• ta bort hindringene som de kommer til √• vokse opp med n√•r de blir voksne kommer v√•r generasjon til √• forbedre seg et hakk opp og slik kan det fortsette. Det viktige her er at man ikke feier ting under teppet, men at man debatterer med argumenter for og imot p√• en anstendig m√•te uten skittkasting og hersketeknikker for √• vinne en diskusjon. Det er til det beste for alle enten man er muslim eller ikke √• avskaffe et samfunnsproblem. N√•r hensikten til √• gi kritikk er den beste, skal man v√¶re voksne og modne nok til √• ta en ordentlig diskusjon om problemet.I det minste burde man strebe etter det.

Whenever we hear about kids or adults that are doing things or behaving in a way that makes us ashamed of them or we would hope that they straighten up, I think there can be several things that has made them like that. For instance, how many of the parents around the world, or let we speak about Norway, has given the children an islamic upbringing as well as letting them go to school. I guess most of the parents haven`t given their children enough time or the right values or given them enough knowledge about Islam. This is why sometimes kids or adults, because they don`t know better, do foolish things that makes everyone else ashamed of them. They put us muslims in a bad light. The only reason behind is that we don`t follow Islam as we should, that is why this is happening. If each and every person can try to look into themselves and ask themselves if they are doing enough so that our next generation is kept on the right path? Had we done enough than situations like this wouldn`t have appeared. If your parents have done this mistake, don`t be the one who does the same mistake with your own children. Give your children time and teach them the right values that come from our Prophet and Quran. Only then we can bring up children that will make us proud of them as our kids. If not another generation will get stranded.

For those people whom has stranded we need to (as much as we are capable of) to pull these people in the right direction as much as we can, before they choose the wrong path that doesn`t go to heaven. May Allah keep guiding each and every on the right path. Ameen.

horoscopesWhen one reads Akhbar-e-jahan or other magazines, it could be very informative, although not all of it`s content is interesting. For instance weekly they write about horoscopes and what will happen in people`s lives. I reckon they write it on demand and would stop if people wouldn`t like it. The question is how important is it to follow such. Reading through hadith I have several times heard that The Prophet (pbuh) has said that the people whom read horoscopes and believe in that which is written their prayers won`t be accepted for 40 days. Even so the people in Pakistan are muslims mostly they still have a few things that are so un-islamic and nobody gets rid of these bad habits. Like reading horoscopes. Isn`t it better to read some info about Islam that can build you a home in the Hereafter: if you also follow what you read.

The things that are written in these horoscopes isn`t true and the people writing it can’t predict the future, so why use your valuable time on it then? If we are born muslims and we want to achieve jannah in sha Allah then we should try our up most to show that through our conduct and not let our surrounding lead us on the wrong path. To know what is good for us, all we need is to read more about our deen Islam, and Alhamdolillah if we are muslims, try our most to follow it as good as we can. Put your trust in Allah, and see that it does make life much better and peaceful. May each muslim try their most to increase knowledge that is valuable for their Hereafter and do their best to follow it.

It doesn`t actually stop here. Nowadays the channels have started having second opinion about cricket matches from pandits. This is how un-islamic it can be. Now we use hindu religion and promote that to such an extent. This is not fun and masti that “oh no problem, we`re only having fun”. What kind of attitude is that you are jeopardizing your own faith just to increase the number of viewers watching the program. This is totally un-acceptable. I can`t understand why not people are condemning this. I guess most of the people in Pakistan have left a lot of things in their own religion. Or maybe they have so many difficulties in their life that they don`t have the energy to focus on others things than getting enough money to buy food or enough electricity in their household. One doesn`t have to have fun to such an extent that we leave basic principles in our religion.

To conclude I would say that one can have halal sort of fun instead of jeopardizing your own faith. The tv-channels should not promote other religions just to earn money. And the viewers should condemn the programs that are un-islamic so that they don`t lose the blessings in their life and earn the wrath of Allah upon themselves in sha Allah.

My Prayer..

‚ÄúO Allah, place light in my heart, and on my tongue light, and in my ears light and in my sight light, and above me light, and below me light, and to my right light, and to my left light, and before me light and behind me light. Place in my soul light. Magnify for me light, and amplify for me light. Make for me light and make me a light. O Allah, grant me light, and place light in my nerves, and in my body light and in my blood light and in my hair light and in my skin light.‚ÄĚ Ameen

Surah 105 Al Fil

Let not man be intoxicated with power, Or material resourses, They cannot defeat. The purpose of Allah. So Abrahah Ashram Found to his cost. His sacrilegious attack On the holy Fane of Allah brought about His own undoing:what seemed but frail Destroyed his mighty hosts in a day!

The foolproof tip of the day for everyone else!

USE YOUR OWN VOICE TO RAISE YOUR OPINION!

Nasiyat..

(",) My Mum always says that
you should marry someone
who loves you more than you
love him, because that man
would never ever make you cry
or be the reason that your
sheding tears. He would do
anything to always keep you
happy and satisfied (",)

Poetry

(“,) Your heart is mine and mine is yours, and so it`s been since I`ve known love`s true meaning itself, holding each others hand we stand together beneath the lovely sky, gazing towards the same destiny, just U and I (“,)

Naat/hamd-Quote of the moment :)

Saari duniya ke liye dard
se mahmor hain jo..
Ik faqat Rehmat-e-aalam
hi ka seena dekha..

Ye sab tumhara
karam hain Aka
ke baat ab tak
bani hoyi hain..

Ehsas dein toofik dein..
Phir jazbaen Siddiq dein..

Kya ye zarra likhein
Shaan Unki, jin pe
bejhein Salaam
khud Khudai..

Quote of the moment :)

Though we might sometimes
have to struggle through thick
or thin,We will receive each
other’s support to be there to
win..And we will blossom like
this through eternity..
InshaAllah
Ameen summa ameen

Når du er forent med en
du elsker, er det ingenting
du ikke klarer :)

Gode tanker skaper
Inderlighet. God
