What about the Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan? Do you ever feel what they had to go through? They were worse off.

 

To be honest when I saw the pictures even more heartbreaking the pictures themselves were the comments on each picture. There was constant bickering on which religion had more casualties and who was worse off etc. Oppressed people know no religion. Whichever religion they were, even if the pictures I saw were of Sikhs or Hindus it would still be heartbreaking.

On a separate note, I always wondered why people have such a short memory to hardships. For example, those who went through hardships of seeing their loved ones die and suffered through difficulties in building a nation soon forget one generation down the line and all their efforts go down to waste when corrupt leaders are now allowed to rule the very country they have worked so hard to build. Or we see the case of the Iranian revolution when the current generation care less on what the principles the revolution stood for. Everyone forgets easily.

 

Hardships are forgotten in times of ease, which is probably why mothers forget the pains they went through during child birth when they see their baby. Do we need constant hardships to keep in touch with reality? Do we need pain and suffering to remind us of our principals?

I don't know why, why do I forget my hardships?

Thoughts: I feel so drained after my classes.

 

Does anyone here have naps? I think I ought to give them a go. Ive heard they work wonders. I just cant get into the idea of regularly sleeping during the day unless its absolutely necessary...

 

So much for the good ol' siesta. My dad's side of the fam would be ashamed lol.

Bro Ali M, I take a nap daily..its quite common in my part of the world...especially in summers and it does rejuvenate you :)

 

Hm, when do you sleep? Do you have the nap in the afternoon or after lunch or? Is there a time that is recommended by scientists? 

 

I have heard that the spanish initially adopted sleeping during the day after lunch (usually around after Dhuhr time) from the Muslims who used to do this due to it being a Sunna.

Watch "Imam Ali's Philosophy on Life (1080p HD)" on YouTube

Ya Abu Turab, ya amir al mo2mineen, what would I do without you in my life? I can always go to you to put my life back into prospective. You are the one who said I divorce this life three times, please help me and show me how to divorce this life. I don't want it either. Oh Allah cleanse this old, black heart and allow it only to accept purity and enrich me to continue to love Habib Allah Mohamed and his family.

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

Yes in the afternoon,an hour between dhuhr and maghrib.

I haven't come across scientific research as far as the timings are concerned.

 

 

Hm, jzk. Thank you. 

 

I have read that the best and most effective nap is supposed to be 20 minutes long?

I take a nap of about 20-30mins between 1pm to 2pm (after Dhuhr). It helps alot!
