verden-i-blomster-world-in-flowersNestekjærlighet finnes i alle religioner. Være en flott borger, nabo, venn, kollega, medmenneske, familie. Å praktisere medmenneskelighet går på tvers av kultur, religion, kjønn, etniske bakgrunn. Når man viser godhet/omtanke om andre via medmenneskelighet så betyr det som oftest ikke at en er forelsket i det menneske. Det betyr kun at du ønsker at det menneske skal leve et godt liv. Ønske et godt liv til andre, slik som en ønsker for seg selv, viser at vi har et godt hjerte. Å rekke ut en hånd til noen som trenger det, er det som får verden til å gå rundt. Nestekjærlighet og positivitet. Uten dette i et samfunn, hadde det blitt tøft å overleve. Jeg er så takknemlige for at det finnes mange ok mennesker her i verden. 👍

Og du som leser dette er en av dem 🙂

israel, usa, world, president, war crimes cartoon gaza under attack israel carlos-latuffI get so amazed by some people when they say that they love a country/ethnicity etc. I know love is blinding, but most people do take this quite literally. For instance when your son is misbehaving in any way. You would, out of love as a parent, try to help him behave the right way. No parent would say, “Oh, I love my son so much, that I`ll let him do whatever he does, because I don`t want him to get hurt/sad”. That doesn`t make any sense. A parent when they see his son trying to catch “fire”, would stop him, so he wouldn`t get burned. Lets replace the little kid/son/brother with the name of Israel, and lets replace the name of parent/big brother with U.S. Now Israel is killing innocent civilians in Palestine, taking over their country. Some real mean stuff. The whole world knows their atrocities. Still father/big brother U.S. is backing him up. “Do whatever you want son. I`ll prevent you from falling or being jailed”, U.S. says. The whole world can see that and admit that most of what the Israelis are doing are wrong. Despite this, I know people whom praise Israel, like they can`t see their war-crimes.

Imagine Your Son Is Misbehaving At School

He is bugging some other kids. You wouldn`t, if you were a good decent parent, cheer him for doing this. I`m sure parents with good values, would stop their child from hurting others. Imagine, if you actually praised him for bullying some class-mates. What do you think would happen to your son? His confidence would increase, and he might do more and meaner stuff. Why? Because your backing him up. If you keep backing up your son, when he does something wrong, it will motivate him to keep on doing it and probably increase him in his wrongdoing. If you don`t want your child to eventually be criticized by the principal or get expelled, most parents, would try to use some incentives to help him stop from misbehaving at school. So you see when son Israel know that father/big brother U.S. has got his back no matter how much wrong he does to bullied Palestine, he won`t stop.

israel vs palestineThis Makes Me Angered And Sad

When other people whom supposedly love Israel, praise the state, despite the wrong decisions it has made, and how many war crimes it is involved in. How can you close your eyes to the fact that even if Israel can be doing 1% right, he is still doing 99% wrong. By cheering him up, just because you generally love Israel, because of it`s holy-ness, is wrong. Yes the land is holy, and muslims also believe that Judaism came before christianity and then Islam came after that. But we can`t stand here and say to someone who just because your message at that time was gods message, I agree with what you are doing now. That doesn`t make any sense. Besides. If you saw jews as your friends, you would tell him when his wrong. Even if that hurt him. You wouldn`t cheer on your friends when they make mistakes, big mistakes, like killing people. If you have the right values, you would make him go to the police and take the sentence the court judges. Because your friend killed another person. It`s not allowed. Just because your friend was born on holy land doesn`t make himself holy. Our Prophet pbuh said too his daughter Fatima raa, your lineage would not make you go to Paradise, so work on doing good deeds. That is the only way of going to Paradise. He said that to his own daughter. Ma sha Allah, that is Islam. Everyone has to pay for their own bad deeds, and will be rewarded individually for their good deeds. If they want to prosper, they will work on this. There is no shortcuts to success, each and every has to take the stairs, one step at a time. If you`re a friend of jews and Israel, a “real” friend, you would stop him from doing wrong. It`s that simple. And if the jews and the state Israel, doesn`t stop it`s war-crimes. It will have a bad end. Maybe in this world, but most certainly in the hereafter, when their crimes will be judged before Allah. They most certainly will have to pay for it. It`s not only about saving your butt in this world. The most important point is whether you are saving your or others butt in the next world, hereafter, when it really will matter. Because the outcome will decide your faith for eternity. May Allah open our eyes, before we become guilty in the same crime, because we didn`t put any effort in stopping it. Aameen.

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.

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
