What is the American dream? What is America today? What makes an American an American? Mostly people talk about becoming famous. Rich. Live a luxurious life. Have everything you can have that money can buy. As many cars as you need. Become rich in a few months and not work for the rest of the life. How many of those who have become popular because of an art they know, have become more humble? When we hear about the life of the rich and famous, people admire them. What a life they have. Everyone around them are so gorgeous. What happens to a life, when they no longer experience any difficulty? Everything is easy, they can buy what they want, at any time? No restrictions? Allah takes away the joy and satisfaction? A rapper once said, I have everything I desire, still I have no peace. Maybe he lost what he needed the most to achieve peace. The love of Allah, and being obedient to Him.

How Is Life In Norway

What is the Norwegian dream? Back to basics. People travel almost every other weekend to the mountains, away from the city, where they can find peace. Go skiing. Simple life in a cottage. They only bring with them the essentials. They connect with the quietness of nature and the peace surrounding them. Away from turmoil, cars and traffic signals. They find themselves through the quietness. The humbleness that is seen is very beautiful. Before the world became a global unity. Life was easier. Most people weren`t so much aware of the right clothes. They spent more time on being the right person. The increase of media, has resulted in people becoming so aware of fashion, that it has lost it`s value. Now, it`s more about what you’re wearing than who you are? Is it the right brand? Norway has also been affected by this. Many people are trying to find the american dream in Norway. But that`s not typical norwegian. There was a time, when the leaders also lived a very ordinary life. A very norwegian simple life. The fear of terrorism has changed how we live. Many important people doesn`t leave their home with out people who protect them.

Simplicity

When we compare these two types of national dreams, what is the conclusion? We find peace where we find simplicity. Where there is less noise. Connect with oneself, and family. Away from gadgets, tv etc. Talking. Connecting with each other without distractions. The characteristics of a typical norwegian has some matters in common with typical muslims values. Finding tranquility, connecting with Allah. See His Beauty. How beautiful He has made Norway. It`s not only the mountains and the sea`s. If we look at the bunad. It is different from city to city. One matter it has in common, it shows the femininity of a woman, while the same time, a modest dress. This is the heritage of Norway. If we look at what american woman wants to wear, they are starving their body to fit into a dress that shows much skin. The national dress of Norway, is very expensive. Teenager are often gifted it from the family in their teens.

Beauty In Re-Use

The new thing now, is to own the most newest thing. New phone, new car, new design, new fashion. If it’s old it’s out. Many american magazines are influencing their readers into becoming more materialistic. When the phone breaks, we buy another of the newest designs. Many Norwegians are very sensitive about the environment. Not even that, they find pride in wearing their grandparents clothes from their younger years. A family can often re-use clothes in many generations, before their worn out. And they proudly say it to their friends, and do not hide it. Many still doesn’t care more about newest fashion and design, than something from their family. Often many designs do come back after several years. They also often find proudness in buying second-hand, clothing and furniture. Many people have made it their hobby, to go to such places and try to find some real antiques. Often do they get a great bargain. The money sent to help people, and they find one of a kind of something real ancient an awesome. They care for the history behind the ancient stuff.

Take Care Of Their Health

With eating fast food and less exercise, it is easy to gain weight. The majority of American has come into this vicious circle, where they make a little effort to keep their health. In general Norwegians are very active people. They like to keep themselves fit by being active in summer and winter sports. Not only with their school, but also with family, friends and free time. It is a part of their culture. Taking part in outdoor activities. Spending time camping. 

Norwegian Support Good Causes

Often when there is any kind of people who need help. They eagerly take part in collecting donations. In demonstrations against oppression, there are more Norwegian participants, than the ethnicity of the people they are fighting for. They care, they listen. Often supportive of the weak, the oppressed. They spend many hours daily and weekly for voluntary work for the less fortunate. The refugees. Those who live on the street. Finding missing people. They want to help the community. Give back of the goodness, they have. Many are doing much remarkable efforts. It is not about money. They genuinely care for the weak. It’s very inspiring. Even with family, children, and many of the same chores of other muslims, they still manage to take out time for the betterment of the community. 

They Earn Their Money

They earn their living. Many take education, and work to attain a meaningful living. After retirement, many help as volunteers helping children with their school work. They don’t see work as burdening. Good work ethics. Being active. Utilizing their skills. 

Your Voice Is Heard

The democratic system. Their open debate. Often amazes me. People can voice their opinions. They often have open debate about matters around social security. The good news is, people are heard. The bad news can be, that people (countries, groups) can harm them through the info they get via media. 

Norwegian Muslim?

There is much beauty in the Norwegian heritage and culture. There is much goodness in calling ourself Norwegian muslims. Proud of where we live. Thankfulness. Gratitude. Muslims come from many backgrounds, many ethnicities, many colors. One matter they have in common is their deen. We can still be good muslims and good Norwegian citizen, at the same time.

AfghanistanMedia is biased. It does not always talk the truth. Most of the journalist are allies of the US/jews and therefore they don`t talk about what really happens in reality. Jews and christians are allies of each other and talk ill of Islam. Especially when there is something that talks against themselves. For instance. When people in afghanistan or Pakistan are murdered by the US, they only tell fewer amount than what the real number of casualties are. They try to write the casualties in small numbers. But if american are killed in any attack they blow up the number and blame Islam right away. Maybe we should blame christianity for the casualties by US in afghanistan war or Pakistani borders than. They who killed them are christians, right?

Why doesn`t anyone raise a finger and point at the US. They are killing people, families, children, women because of a war without any meaning to it. Even if the numbers are only told in small amounts, behind every life that is killed, there are maybe a few hundred lives that are affected. We can`t put an amount of 11 kids that are being killed under the rug, because their just such a small amount. Think about the family’s that are left behind. How can children have anything to do with a war? Why are they killing families? When they kill civilians in afghan or pakistan or any muslim country, they conceal the number of casualties, and don`t talk about it. But when some americans are killed they always blame it on the muslims and blow up the number in their newspaper, put it on the frontage etc, and want the muslim community to condemn it. This is their double standards. Why can`t they condemn as followers of christianity, when they kill muslim children and women in muslim countries. Though they and the whole community expect us muslims to condemn the attacks that some people do just because their names are muslims. Islam doesn`t have anything to do with those attacks. Because Islam says that if you slay a person without any reason it is as if you have slayed the whole mankind and if you save a life it is as if you have saved the whole mankind. Slaying people just because you disagree with them is not Islam and not thought by our book Quran.

Every life is precious be it an american or an Afghani, muslim or not. No one has the right to label a war and kill innocent people just to gather their people against Islam. If Islam is their enemy how can so many people convert/ revert to this religion from their own kind and live peacefully in their own country? The US`s biggest threat is Islam because it is growing and people find this religion appealing. They are afraid that the muslims will govern the world and they will be left behind. That`s why they are trying to twist the Islam in their media from reality. They are afraid that if muslims will increase their own religion will be forgotten. Well wake up, it already is. How many people from their kind do practice their own religion? Most of them have become atheist because they have gone far away from their own religion. When religion is made a private issue instead of the state`s issue that is what happens, people leave religion. People forget it and live their lives without knowing what their own religion is teaching. That is what the case is here in Norway and in the rest of the West.

The US politicians are the ones we should blame if a terrorist attack happens in their country. The US is the only responsible one. Why? Because of their double standards in their politics, killing innocent family’s in muslim countries that doesn`t have anything to do with the war they themselves have founded. Just think about the thought for a moment. Someone kills your whole family. Someone kills the people whom have raised you up or your children. The people who you love the most are dreadfully killed. Don`t you think that the only thing that would be on your mind is revenge? People killing innocent children and women, because of what? They are feeding the extremists. Those people feed those family’s that has lost any family member and tell them who their enemy is. Wake up! Children in Palestine throw stones at the jew soldiers, and they fire back with guns. Who is the real enemy here? Is this fair? Is it fair that the US is funding Israel, an extremist state? Is it fair that Norway is buying weapons from Israel? They are funding an extremist state Israel that has taken over a country that wasn`t their own. We can`t excpect them to be fair because this is business to them. If americans are killed we start a war, if Afghanis or Pakistanis are killed nothing happens. The figures doesn`t even raise an eyebrow of an US politician. Are those human beings worth nothing to them? Is a life not a life be it Afghani or American? I guess not to them.

When the US will try to find peaceful ways of resolving their conflicts instead of using war, only then will the extremist put down their weapons and we will experience peace in the world. If we expect that killing innocent lives wont result in any retaliation, I better burst your bubble, because that ain`t happening. The US government is the biggest extremist and when they will begin to deal fairly with the countries they deal with, than they will experience long-lasting peace in sha Allah. May Allah give hidayah to the US government. Ameen summa ameen. Remember one thing, hates bread hate. If someone kills any of your family members I know you are not the one that will send choclate and candy to their house. Saying “thank you”. No matter how many quarrels you have had with that person, family is family, and we don`t want or like them to get brutally killed by an enemy. The US war agains terrorism is a war based on a lie. I hope they wake up an realize that soon, before more lives are killed, meaninglessly.

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!

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
