norsk flaggDette er en tanke som har streifet meg flere ganger opp gjennom oppveksten og frem til dagen idag. Hva vil det si å være norsk? Hvem er nordmenn? Er det bare for de som har røtter fra Norge. Er det bare for de som kan gå på ski og liker fisk og går med bunad på 17.mai?

Jeg er født i Norge, men mine foreldre er fra et annet land. Flere ganger gjennom oppveksten har jeg opplevd at andre har sagt at jeg skal gå hjem dit jeg kom fra. Men jeg kommer jo fra Norge? Eller gjør jeg?

Idag kan folk få norsk statsborgerskap selv om de ikke født i landet. Men er man norsk nok når man har fått norsk statsborgerskap. Jeg blir fortsatt ikke regnet som norsk selv om jeg er født her, så om du i tillegg IKKE snakker helt flytende norsk, hvor mange fordommer opplever man da mon tro? I believe, det må være mange.

Det er akkurat som at mange etniske nordmenn har lagt en sperre på hva de ser på som norsk og det henger mye sammen med religion. Er du “mosslim”, ja da er du ikke norsk. Er ikke det litt rart å tenke på? Ja hvorfor ellers skulle de be etniske nordmenn som har konvertert til Islam å gå tilbake dit de kom fra. “Unnskyld”, sier de da, “jeg har etniske norske foreldre, men er selv “Mosslim”. Ok, så jeg vil praktisere min tro, men betyr det at dersom jeg ikke er kristen, ateist eller no så er jeg ikke norsk nok? Når andre folk ønsker frihet til å praktisere sin egen religion, og de er i minoriteten så må de flytte fra landet sitt, men jeg trodde det var religionsfrihet her. Å nei,my fault, den gjelder bare etniske nordmenn som er enten kristne eller ateister. My bad, og jeg som trodde jeg forstod dere. Apparently, I was wrong.

Ikke forstå meg feil, jeg er meget takknemlig for at jeg bor i Norge. Et land med mange muligheter for de fleste, og ikke minst har man en bra mulighet til å lykkes. Og jeg trives veldig bra her også. Alhamdolillah. Jeg prøver bare å belyse den dobbeltmoralen som henger i lufta, og som kanskje ikke er belyst nok ganger til at vi alle tar tak i den og prøver å utbedre det som ikke er bra. Tross alt det finnes jo bra og dårlige sider i alle kulturer, ikke sant?

Helt til slutt vil jeg bare si at jeg føler meg faktisk mer pakistansk enn norsk. Kanskje er det på grunn av denne dobbeltmoraliteten i samfunnet at jeg føler meg mer pakistansk enn norsk. Men vil bare si at en etnisk person som er muslim er like lite / mye norsk som en som er født og / eller oppvokst her. Det handler om verdier, men ikke verdier bundet til religion, synes jeg.

stop bullysWe are all special in our own unique way. We have different shapes and sizes and colors but from the inside we are alike. You cannot find one person that doesn`t have red blood in them. But you can find a lot of people whom doesn`t have a heart. Or a heart that is placed on the wrong places. I`m sure each and every one of us has experienced being discriminated in their life in one way or the other. The natives in each country could often experience less bullying because they fit into the culture as in how everything is. Often the unfortunate ones are those that are different, in some way, either by ethnicity, religion, color, size or something similar.

If you have experienced bully`s in your life, i just want to say one thing to you: You Are Special! ❤ In every way we, are all different, and have those qualities in us that makes us unique, because there won`t be any person like you. You are rare and precious. Just because you are an outsider in the crowd doesn`t mean anything. You see, what is normal to one person can be far from normal to another person. Who decides what is normal? Is it our culture? Well then what about those that practice their religion? Are they not normal? Or just because someone has another complexion than the majority, they are not worthy people? No matter what these bullies makes us believe, every life is precious and most importantly worthy of having a blessed life. There may be people who are mean today, but they weren`t born like that. It was their environment that made them like that. Their upbringing and the beliefs of their parents, spouse, friends and colleagues has shaped them into the beings they are today.

Just because you don`t fit in the environment you are living in today, doesn`t mean that you are ab-normal. It means you are special, like all us. Let not another person have this power over you that he / she says otherwise. Sometimes people are bullies in their homes, schools, work , between friends and in the market. What amazes me about this is that, there is always a crowd that is seeing the bullying, yet a very few people intervene to stop and protect and help the bullied person. They are rather enjoying fight. Just listen to this lecture and you will understand what i say.

It is so important that we care for other human beings. Just because it`s not You today, doesn`t mean that you should stop caring. Tomorrow it could be someone you know or maybe someone in your family. If you don`t stick up against the oppressor, you could be the oppressed another time, and won`t you prefer that someone would help you then? We need more caring people in this world. The children just as much as the adults. Were not going to be able to stop this unless we are brave and stand behind the oppressed. So tell me, are you with the oppressor or with the oppressed?

My Prayer..

“O 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.” 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!

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

giverglede skaper
kjærlighet:)
