True. However, poetry does not contain "slang" or low words. It has room for fascination, you know, people can find beauty in its words. A poem should involve peoples' focus with its words, indulge them. It takes hard work to produce. You can't just write some sentences of roughly the same length, use slang terms from rap and hip hop music, arrange them in descending order and call it a poem. Sorry. Just offering constructive criticism for improvement. ^^

When you have Roundup banned and when governments and scientific researches not in corporate funding and control. When human life becomes more valuable than profits. When they ignore profits and derive new antibiotics for the adapting pathogens. When the masses are not misled like sheep for more consumption of everything including dangerous and haraam for the sake of profits. Then a whole lot of problems will disappear and humanity will start progressing like before too.

Meanwhile, around the planet, small European and UK armies serve merrily at the disposal of their Merican overlords as they all proudly serve under NATO and ruin humanity, stealing oil and resources and installing malicious puppets as they go.

Mashallah these good teachings are just the things our society needs to adopt to become human again. It is a weighty blow upon the thoughts of those who believe in capitalistic opportunistic ways of conduct which are alien to humanity. Today all sects have turned a blind eye to such things and muslims rob muslims, e.g. in ramadhan with price hikes or when someone is in need they will buy cheap and sell at high price.

Dressing simply and living simply does not mean you have to be poor, or destitute. You can have a high paying career and dress simple and live simple. I guess its about obtaining whatever Allah wills for us of the dunya, without developing an attachment to it, and that is the tough part. With excess money comes extravagance, unless you have your pockets under control and spending in the way of Allah.
The Prophet Muhammad said, in a hadith qudsi,
Allah said: "Verily, from My believing worshipers are those whose religion cannot service them unless they are wealthy, comfortable, and physically healthy. So I try them with wealth, comfort, and physical health so that their religion may service them. And from my beliving worshipers are those whose religion cannot service them unless they are poor, destitute, and physically ill. So I try them with poverty, destitution, and ailing health so that their religion may service them. And verily, We know what is better for our believing worshipers in matters of religion.
And from my believing worshipers is he who strives in his worship, so he rises from his sleep, his relaxation, and his cushion to make tahajjud for Me during the nights and becomes fatigued from his worship. So I cause him to become sleepy on one or two nights so that I may try him and observe him. So he sleeps until he wakes, and he rises upset with himself and miserable over it. If I were to allow him to worship as he wanted, then conceit would have entered him due to it, and that conceit would lead him to mischief in his deeds. That conceitedness and self-satisfaction from his worship would bring about his destruction, as he would think that he has excelled above the worshipers and surpassed the limits of defective worship. Consequently, he would [actually] be distancing himself from Me whilst thinking that he is getting closer to Me.
So, those who perform good deeds should not [solely] rely on the deeds that they perform for my rewards. For verily, if they were to strive, tire themselves, and exhaust their years in My worship, they would [still] fall short in their quest for My marvels and My bounties in My Paradise and the highest positions near Me. Rather, they must put their trust in My mercy, and they must be happy with My grace, and they must be hopeful and content with Me. For verily, at that, My mercy will embrace them. They will attain My satisfaction, and My forgiveness will enshroud them, for verily, I am Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, and by that I have been named."
مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيى، عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسى، عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ، عَنْ دَاوُدَ الرَّقِّيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ الْحَذَّاءِ:
عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ عليه السلام، قَالَ: «قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وآله: قَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ: إِنَّ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ «6» الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عِبَاداً لَايَصْلُحُ لَهُمْ «7» أَمْرُ دِينِهِمْ إِلَّا بِالْغِنى وَالسَّعَةِ وَالصِّحَّةِ فِي الْبَدَنِ، فَأَبْلُوهُمْ بِالْغِنى وَالسَّعَةِ وَصِحَّةِ الْبَدَنِ «8»، فَيُصْلِحُ عَلَيْهِمْ «9» أَمْرَ دِينِهِمْ.
وَ إِنَّ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لَعِبَاداً «10» لَايَصْلُحُ لَهُمْ أَمْرُ دِينِهِمْ إِلَّا بِالْفَاقَةِ «11» وَالْمَسْكَنَةِ
وَ السُّقْمِ فِي أَبْدَانِهِمْ، فَأَبْلُوهُمْ بِالْفَاقَةِ وَالْمَسْكَنَةِ وَالسُّقْمِ «1»، فَيُصْلِحُ عَلَيْهِمْ «2» أَمْرَ دِينِهِمْ، وَأَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَصْلُحُ عَلَيْهِ أَمْرُ دِينِ عِبَادِيَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ.
وَ إِنَّ مِنْ عِبَادِيَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ لَمَنْ يَجْتَهِدُ فِي عِبَادَتِي، فَيَقُومُ «3» مِنْ رُقَادِهِ وَلَذِيذِ وِسَادِهِ «4»، فَيَتَهَجَّدُ «5» لِيَ «6» اللَّيَالِيَ «7»، فَيُتْعِبُ نَفْسَهُ فِي عِبَادَتِي، فَأَضْرِبُهُ بِالنُّعَاسِ اللَّيْلَةَ وَاللَّيْلَتَيْنِ؛ نَظَراً «8» مِنِّي لَهُ «9»، وَإِبْقَاءً عَلَيْهِ، فَيَنَامُ حَتّى يُصْبِحَ، فَيَقُومُ وَهُوَ مَاقِتٌ لِنَفْسِهِ، زَارِئٌ «10» عَلَيْهَا، وَلَوْ أُخَلِّي بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ مَا يُرِيدُ مِنْ عِبَادَتِي لَدَخَلَهُ الْعُجْبُ مِنْ ذلِكَ، فَيُصَيِّرُهُ الْعُجْبُ «11» إِلَى الْفِتْنَةِ بِأَعْمَالِهِ، فَيَأْتِيهِ مِنْ ذلِكَ مَا فِيهِ هَلَاكُهُ؛ لِعُجْبِهِ بِأَعْمَالِهِ، وَرِضَاهُ عَنْ نَفْسِهِ، حَتّى يَظُنَّ أَنَّهُ قَدْ فَاقَ الْعَابِدِينَ، وَجَازَ فِي عِبَادَتِهِ حَدَّ التَّقْصِيرِ، فَيَتَبَاعَدُ مِنِّي عِنْدَ ذلِكَ وَهُوَ يَظُنُّ أَنَّهُ يَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيَّ، فَلَا يَتَّكِلِ «12» الْعَامِلُونَ «13» عَلى أَعْمَالِهِمُ الَّتِي يَعْمَلُونَهَا «14» لِثَوَابِي؛ فَإِنَّهُمْ لَوِ اجْتَهَدُوا وَأَتْعَبُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَأَفْنَوْا «15» أَعْمَارَهُمْ فِي عِبَادَتِي كَانُوا مُقَصِّرِينَ، غَيْرَ بَالِغِينَ فِي عِبَادَتِهِمْ كُنْهَ عِبَادَتِي فِيمَا يَطْلُبُونَ عِنْدِي «16»
مِنْ كَرَامَتِي وَالنَّعِيمِ فِي جَنَّاتِي وَرَفِيعِ دَرَجَاتِيَ «1» الْعُلى «2» فِي جِوَارِي، وَلكِنْ «3» فَبِرَحْمَتِي «4» فَلْيَثِقُوا، وَبِفَضْلِي «5» فَلْيَفْرَحُوا «6»، وَإِلى حُسْنِ الظَّنِّ بِي فَلْيَطْمَئِنُّوا؛ فَإِنَّ رَحْمَتِي عِنْدَ ذلِكَ تَدَارَكُهُمْ «7»، وَمَنِّي يُبَلِّغُهُمْ رِضْوَانِي، وَمَغْفِرَتِي تُلْبِسُهُمْ «8» عَفْوِي؛ فَإِنِّي أَنَا اللَّهُ الرَّحْمنُ الرَّحِيمُ، وَ«9» بِذلِكَ تَسَمَّيْتُ». «

The Green Knight reacted to hayaah in A ShiaChat Reunion?
The reason why shiachat was alive back then is because it was new. So all the members were exploring SC at the same time. Whereas now; there is a wide range of members in terms of oldest to newest, meaning everyone's SC journey is at different levels.
