Palestine was Not a Wasteland

November 26, 2010

I am astonished that some sources on the Web assert that Palestine was never a country and that it is only a historical name for a region that surrounds a new state which we watched emerging from the rubble of the homes and farms of the real inhabitants.

Take for example this Website. The language used to describe the history of Palestine, the biased arguments defending the controversial state born, and the accuses held against the Muslims of the world, all of these just tell the Arabs who read it one thing and tell the indifferent Westerner another thing.

It is really unjust and unfair to the Palestinians to steal their land and treat them like stray animals giving them no chance to live normally.

For more information about the plight of the Palestinians, visit Palestine Remembered.

MP3 Walking

November 26, 2010

When I was a university student I always imagined that when entering the main building of the campus a music would be played in the background of the scene just like the one when hear in movies about royalty life, if you understand what I mean.

I bought a new SONY USB Walkman MP3 Player:

Sony NWZ-B153 USB Walkman MP3 Player

I know, I rather spend more time with family, friends, and also in learning more about Islam and in reading the Quran.

What is Wrong?

November 19, 2010

Why is there so much hatred in this world?

So, I commented on a video on YouTube about a Pakistani pilgrim who had the chance to perform Hajj this year. I was so happy for him and for all the pilgrims and prayed to Allah to offer us the chance to visit Makkah in this life. One person replied to my comment with what it meant:

May Allah tell him to tell his neighbors to stop bombing themselves, amen.

What do you think? Has not his comment blew it up? Could not this comment get you depressed? It did to me. If he was trying to say something good, he could not have said it in that way. It is mocking me and the pilgrim, is not it?

And I am still wondering why they hate us? Not all Muslims are Al-Qaeda. I wish Taliban and Al-Qaeda be wiped out. They are harming Islam and Muslims all over the world. We are struggling to cure the wounds that they have inflicted by their stupid rampages.

May Allah help us in eradicating the minds of destruction and hate, amen.

Eid Mubarak!

The Islamic Pilgrimage: Hajj

November 6, 2010

Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage, is a dream journey for every believing Muslim. To know about Hajj:

Best Opportunity for Repentance!

November 6, 2010

Tomorrow, if Allah wills, is the first day of the month of Dhul Hijjah, may it be full of Allah’s blessings and forgiveness. The first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are blessed and the Muslim has to make the most of them by:

  • praying more sincerely,
  • spending more time in studying the Quran,
  • fasting those days,
  • doing more good like helping the poor, planting the earth, cleaning the environment, visiting the family, being honest and kind, and visiting the ill,
  • asking eagerly for Allah’s forgiveness and acceptance of repentance, and
  • making effort to clarify the misconceptions about Islam by behaving like a real Muslim: stop smoking, stop drinking alcohol, stop following women, stop wasting time in cafes and malls, spend your money more wisely, regard people’s feelings, be kind to the elderly and children, love Allah’s creatures, make your family happy, and keep your city clean.

May Allah forgive our sins and mistakes, that which we know of and which we do not know of, amen.
