The matter about muslims making fake stories. First of all, if they are muslims and like to use humour in their dawah projects, they have to study what the quran and sunnah says about humour. Muslims are serious about holy matters.

The Great Deception

If muslims are making fake stories for fun, they should understand that Hazoor Paak (pbuh) has said: “the greatest of all deceptions is to lie to your brother (sister) while he (she) believes you. 

Diverting Attention

Another problem with fake stories is that, it takes away the attention of important issues the world is facing. The fakeness increases the distrust to all kinds of stories, even the true ones lose reliability.

Wrong Incentive

If the intention of those who make fake stories is to increase the readers critical thinking while reading a story, they are using the wrong incentives, which again can lead to bad side-effects and people who doesn’t care about the world, will increase. 

Question Ethics Of Journalism

People who know how powerful media is. Muslims and blacks and different ethnicities know the racism / bigotry / double standards of the media. And those oppressed by media, understand how important it is for each and every individual to develop the quality of critical thinking. If 1. of april was celebrated everyday, we would be more critical to what people told us. (1.april is not allowed in Islam). Every story any anchor in the media presents, every opinion million of viewers are watching, is coloured by the personal views of the journalist. How can we cultivate good sound ethics in this profession? In other words, since lying is more common in people, we are actually told many lies in the media everyday. Most of us, are too naive or manipulated to the extent that we believe everything we hear, without checking the reliability or the source of information. Hazoor Paak (pbuh) has said: “a person who believes everything he hears, is a liar”. Also the quran tells us to check the reliability of what we hear, hence we do some harm because of it, and later become regretful. I pray that every individual is taught how to be critical to information from the school. Not to develop mistrust, but to make them understand the whole puzzle, not just one part of the story. Although we want to protect children /teens as much as we can, we can’t. People are telling lies in faces of people. And we are not able to always tell you what is right. But with teaching children and teenager good values and critical thinking.  They will themselves become well prepared to face the world. Who is cruel to everyone. Especially those who are naive. 

It Hardens Your Heart

We have come to a time, where people share news, if the presenter is beautiful. Not many notice the message as much as how the presenter is beautiful. Life is not only about hip-hop, songs, the right beard and stuff. Life will only increase us in value if we have good conduct. Laughing til you fall is probably fun in your teens, as you mature as a muslim, you will sence you soul being un-happy with your laughter, because it hardens your heart. 

His Beauty Is Also His Atributes

Another problem, is when people make lies about seeing the name of Allah, in differents, fruits or vegetables or in the clouds or mountains. There is no doubt that Allah, is able to do whatever he wants. But by just seeing His (Allah) name written, doesn’t do justice to His Perfect Beauty. Allah’s beauty can be seen through His Atributes 99 names. Just as there is no doubt that Hazoor Paak (pbuh) was beautiful. But his (pbuh) beauty that melted hearts, can be known through his (pbuh) conduct, values, character, manners, forgivingness, empathy, inviting all mankind to success, humility, peacefulness, kindness, selfless giving, gestures, smiling, easygoingness, cheerfulness, spreading good, helping people who were mean to him, forbeareness, supplications, connection with his (pbuh) Creator, his (pbuh) good sence of humour, good treatment of women and children and elders, sincerity, pure love for his (pbuh) followers and all mankind, eagerness to spread Allah’s words, hopefulness, taking away others burdens, gratefulness, contentment, simplicity, godfear, taqwa, love of God, obedience to His Creator, making matters easy and halal. And the list goes on and on. 

Humour Has Become “Mean”

Hazoor Paak (pbuh) dislikes people who tell lies in order to make other laugh. Hazoor Paak (pbuh) dislikes those who tell untrue stories. Hazoor Paak (pbuh) had a great sence of humour. Humour that was pure, good, lighhearted fun.  Humour today have become something “mean”, because it’s baked in telling other people’s mistakes in a funny way. We look down at you, so we make fun of you. (That involves backbiting, pride / arrogance, honor-issues, making up un-true stories and much more). Hazoor Paak (pbuh) has said a man may utter a word, and without knowing, have fallen deep down in jahanum because of it. May Allah help all people rectify their matters as soon as possible, and grant everyone a sincere tawbah for all past mistakes. Aameen. 

Please Remove All Tragical Effects Of This Post

May Allah guide us all, to not misuse humour, but instead learn halal techniques that can help us swallow an important message, without dying because of it. Aameen. 

  
The majority of people condemn those who hijack planes/buildings/stores. And believe that the hijackers are wrongdoers. When it comes to hijacking a religion (Islam), people instantly believe that they are believers of that religion (Islam) they are hijacking. When that is far from the truth.

We Can’t Expect People To Know This

People can’t see a hijacker as a hijacker maybe because they have little knowledge of what Islam is. It maybe that the media often say that the hijackers are muslims. Even when there is consensus amongst muslim learned men worldwide that they are not muslims. If a person with no medical education opens a medical office and starts treatment of patients. If the patients have some education and experience from the field, they’ll probably soon see, that this person has no understanding of how to treat patients. If he gets controlled by the authorities because of complaints, the first the authorities will check is his education papers. If they find out that the university doesn’t exist or that the papers are fake, he would be jailed for fraud. In every field we have groups of people who know their field inside out. Accepting expert advice from a non-expert is foolishness. No matter how much this doctor claims to this profession, no other doctor will agree that he is from their profession. From a real doctors perspective, he would want the authorities to stop his medical office because his destroying the reputation and reliability of his profession. 

Does The Media Distort Information? 

In other words, the media is listening to what the hijackers claims (whom may not have any formal education). Instead of our learned men who have decades of knowledge and practice of Islam. In other words the media’s source reliability is down to zero. If they wanted the truth to be known they’d not think twice, but asked the professionals in the subject. And easily be able to ascertain a fraudster from the real believing men. The Media are putting their ethics at stake by not doing this. Their intentions need to be evaluated. That is why for an ordinary person it is very important to know the anchors in the tv-channel before they believe everything they say. Some people have no shame. They can lie to your face without any bad feelings. They’ve over-ruled their own ethics so many times, that it doesn’t even make them feel bad. While a true believer, even when he/she knows he/she is on the right path, if and when someone claim something else, he/she would instantly check if he/she did the right action. The real true ones, they’d probably believe the false claimers and start working on themselves. It’s like two people coming home from a friday Khutbah (source muslim show). One is a true believer and the other is a hypocrite. When the family of the true believer asks how the khutbah (friday sermon at the mosque) was, the true believer would say; “I’m doomed. I have so many faults, the Imam talked about today. How will I manage to prosper? When the family of the hypocrite asks about the khutbah he is happy. The khutbah didn’t make him evaluate himself, and he thinks it went well. When anyone doesn’t even have a heart to stop oneself from lying on national television with millions of viewers, how can we not say that their hearts have gone black from continuous sinning. And now they do not feel bad about it. No conscience. And their hearts have stopped questioning themselves. May Allah help and guide all professions to live up to the perfect qualities according to their professions. Aamen

This issue can be common in some families, between spouses, between friends, other people or at work. What happens is that people try to manipulate you into behaving like they want you to, by giving you a guilt-trip. I`m sure a lot of you may have experienced that some persons in your life make you feel bad about you making your own decisions. They would come with remarks like; “how can you be so selfish?” or “after all that I have done for you…” What they`re actually implying indirectly is that if you don’t behave the way they want you to, you will suffer. A blackmailer could threaten to use information they have gained before to harm or ruin person`s reputation. What actually happens is this:
1. The blackmailer is demanding something.
2. You resist.
3. The blackmailer pressurize you and threatens you
4. Eventually you give in.
5. It repeats.

This is a vicious circle that keeps on blocking you from living a free life. You may feel trapped and don’t know what to do. Guilt-trips have to do with the blackmailers making us believe that we are responsible for their complaints and their unhappiness. A blackmailer would use a sentence like “I`m feeling … and it`s your fault.” Sometimes we are able to stop the guilt-trip by checking the accusations reliability, but many times we would say “sorry” before we check the blackmailer`s logic later, if we check it at all.

When someone is not able to make us feel bad enough about something, they would call for reinforcements. They would bring in other people, family/ friends, enlisting allies to prove that they are right and you`re wrong… Just so that the target may feel outnumbered or overpowered.. Always remember one thing the blackmailer wants you to think that it`s all about you. When in fact it`s not. Actually it`s the blackmailer that is insecure and fears something so he/she has a need to prove his/her self-righteousness. And so everything is tossed on you. Sometimes it`s difficult for one to understand that others demands can be quite unreasonable so you give the blackmailing permission to occur.

To stop the emotional blackmailing it`s important that you resist and you change your reactions to it. The most useful way to change a manipulator is to make that person`s tactics ineffective by changing yourself. If the manipulation turns out to be hard work for the manipulator he/she would probably give up. This is a sentence that can be quite useful: “I understand that you want me to do this work for you, but your threats aren`t going to be effective anymore”. Keep on saying the sentence till the blackmailer stops the manipulation and finally sees that no matter what he/she would do he/she isn`t coming any way. And from there and forward make it clear to the manipulator how you want to be treated.

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

bani hoyi hain..

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

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

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
