  1. JazakAllah khayr brother, glad you enjoyed it
  2. Thanks?
  3. I want to introduce you all to my man Frigo He drives fast cars with pretty girls in the back Frigo always means business, Evolving like pokemon he got me pokemon for christmas, Frigo was my past, present and future, I told him I can’t see but he told me to stay persistent, He told me me to live for now and not worry about what’s distant, Frigo was my leader not an assistant and was gifted, Gifting me with unquenchable desires that I chase at a pace I can’t control, Frigo only drives fast cars with pretty girls in the back, I’m young but I believe in Frigo, he’s so youthful, I serve this world in no way but Frigo says I’m useful, I mean he’s was always there in my mind, Always giving me his time injecting me with promises which, I really hope aren’t lies He’s been there in times my where I thought I was doing wrong but he told me I was doing fine, Frigo feeds me all the knowledge anyone could ever ask for, I’m on this never landing flight and he’s holding onto my passport, The adrenaline I felt is what he calls my medicine, To keep adding on and never settle in, More is never enough, Frigo tells me that greed is a synonym for tough, Cause it’s a dog eat dog world and you gotta make the loudest woof, Frigo’s bark is loudest of them all, I can feel it within me like a hungry stomach suffering from starvation, Only this is hunger worse, Because even if I’ve eaten enough I’ll start to feel it like extreme thirst, I tell Frigo I must stop but he whispers in my ear, Convinces me to follow him once more, He tells me tomorrow I can stop and I never have to see him again, But then I wake up the next morning looking for my friend, Frigo tells me this is all life has to offer, He tells me giving is synonym for weakness, Give me all your time I’m giving you completeness, But I couldn’t do it anymore, and no whispering shall convince me, He smiled at me, began to rub his golden belly, He said I can make life so much easier if you’d just let me, Staring into his eyes the golden eyeballs with diamonds in his pupils, I look even deeper I can see his disapproval, The optics of the diamond through his pupil flickers a light that never seems to shine bright, This light that blinds my eyes like clouds blocking us from seeing the clear blue sky, I, ask Frigo why his light never fully shines, He says this light isn't mine, The diamond you see in my pupil, is a reflection of what I see in your eyes, The closer I looked into the diamond I could see, That the flickering light in Frigo's eyes, was me, He tells me he's not here to stop me from greed He's not going to stop telling me giving is for the weak, He's not the one who will put me on track, Frigo only drives fast cars, with pretty girls in the back, I locked Frigo up and swallowed the key, Giving is a synonym for tough, And greed is a synonym for weakness, I had to control my Frigo, I had to control my free-ego
  4. I say who cares, You so you do, But I don't believe it, Don't believe its true, I care for myself, What does myself have anything to do with you, How does me improving improve you, I ask you who cares and you still say you do, I avoid conversation so I don't really talk to no one, And that applies to you as well since you always seem close to me, But never speaking out vocally like you're supposed to be, But even if I don't speak or ask a question, You always respond with a sign, and a lesson So I find myself beside you not verbally saying words but internally my heart spills these adjectives and verbs make me want to say I love you while I stare at your face, I can't describe what you look like but your presence is beauty and I can't hear your voice because you don't reply you just give, and give more, I only see you every once in a while but your doors are always open, Now I can flourish, I learned, That death is always there, its loving that takes real courage, And now staying in silence Cause to me that's worse than violence I seek purpose in my life, A reason to wake up early and make a difference Cause living for no reason is foolish and senseless, I sought out an ear instead I found a path, A path not only straight but escalates like your climbing up stairs, All thanks to Allah, the one who always cares
  5. No problem at all my brother! Stay strong, inshaAllah we'll be rewarded for our struggles. Salaam Alaykum
  6. 1. Put Allah before everything: Know that it is Allah who we must follow and serve, not people. If people are to judge, know that Allah is the Almighty judge. If you put Allah before everything, you'll not only find success, but Allah will show you who the right people are from the wrong. 2. Educate yourself: Any chance you get outside of school, listen to a lecture on Islamic history, or Islamic sciences. Lecturers like Sayed Ammar Nakshawani, Sayed Mahdi Al-Modaressi, and Sayed Hossein Al-Qazwini are all all-star lecturers in my book. The more knowledge you gain, the easier it is to follow and stay on the deen in my opinion. 3. Try and surround yourself with like-minded people: This I'll admit I have trouble with. I currently have one friend who I am semi-close with, they're actually from another sect in Islam, but are very strong in their emaan. One way of solving this issue I believe is looking to get married, as your spouse will be your best friend, and sometimes it's comforting knowing that you're struggling together and hanging on together. I get that your young but marrying young is a Sunnah and I believe should be practiced, especially in our generation. 4. Better yourself every day: Every morning that you wake up, make a conscious effort to better yourself. The only person you are competing with is the person you were yesterday, don't compare yourself to others. Create positive habits, and slowly work on making yourself a more complete Muslim, and person in general. Don't worry about what other Muslims are doing and how their acting, you'll only be judged on what YOU do. 5. Don't beat yourself up: You will fall, it's unavoidable. Just don't lose hope, repent sincerely, and move on learning from your last mistake/sin. Some people try to forget about the mistake and continue on the path they left off, but I say ponder what led to the mistake/sin and how you can avoid committing that act again. A strategy I like to do is reverse the bad with some good. If you catch yourself committing a sin, repent sincerely, ponder, then pray a mustahab 2-raka'a prayer. 6. Try praying Salat Al-Layl: It's done wonders for me, inshaAllah it may do even more good for you. Hope this helps. Salaam Alaykum
  7. Salaam Alaykum Brother, I am also in a similar position as you, I live in the west and try my best to keep up with society while keeping my deen intact. I'm a couple years older than you, Alhamdulillah I'd like to think I've found some success, so I'd like to share some of the strategies which I've adopted which have helped in in this jihad. 1. Put Allah before everything: Know that it is Allah who we must follow and serve, not people. If people are to judge, know that Allah is the Almighty judge. If you put Allah before everything, you'll not only find success, but Allah will show you who the right people are from the wrong. 2.

  8. Understanding that Allah(swt) has created us all, and has given us all intellect which we strive to enhance. Not every is in the same position in the spectrum, but at the same time, their is no top to the spectrum. Understanding that we are nothing on this world and our jobs is to guide people through our manners and deeds, like Imam Ali(as)
  9. In my opinion giving names related to the Holy Prophet and his Family(as) are best when naming a child. The are not only spiritual benefits which apply to this, but in a practical sense as well. For example, my name is Ali. As I grew up I thought about who I'm named after, and learned about Imam Ali. Today, I model everything I do with Imam Ali in my thoughts, especially my manner and deeds. Therefore, when you give your child a name corresponding to AhlulBayt, your child will naturally be proud of who they are.
  10. InshaAllah this give the perspective and answer we hoping to attain.
  11. The actions of the majority of companions were fake. They would act a certain way in front of the prophet, but when he died, who's there to impress? Allah isn't on their list. Omar and Abu Bakr didn't even attend the Prophet's (pbuh&hf) funeral! So many cases prove to us that the position of khalifa was usurped from Imam Ali(as), and sermon #3 in Nahjol Balagha illustrates that the best as it comes from the Imam himself.
  12. I watched a bit of that game, what a win for Iran! Beautiful gesture to the legend Falcao afterwards as well. InshaAllah they go far!
  13. A few questions for my fellow brothers. What are some obstacles that you are facing that are preventing you from getting married? What are some excuses your parents give you if you have opened up to them? And what's your goal to overcoming that obstacle?
  14. I recently have taken it upon myself to work on that aspect of my deen. At work I met a girl a couple years younger than me who introduced herseld and extended her hand to shake, and I placed my hand on my chest (Iraqis will know what I mean) and said "Sorry I don't shake hands". I guess she knew it was for religious purposes, and instead of feeling offended, she actually respected me more. If I woman asks, us brothers can mention this: not just anybody can shake hands with the queen right? They have to be of a certain status, and Islam teaches us that all women are queens. Only those close to her can touch her. Its a sign of respect more than anything. InshaAllah we all feel comfortable turning down handshakes with the fear of Allah in our hearts.
  15. I personally believe that there's a time and place for everything. I feel when the time comes to ask serious questions, then sneaking in a couple jokes and getting some smiles going is always nice, but not too much. Sometimes just smiling is just as good as a moment of humour. When meeting a potential spouse, I would focus on smiling at them and keeping a warm vibe throughout the conversation. Sometimes keeping things light gets the best our of everyone.
