Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]

Recommended Posts

Just saw pictures of the great migration from India to Pakistan back in the days when muslims were being slaughtered. Heartbreaking pictures.

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

So I'm pre-diabetic too now. What on Earth is wrong with me? I'm sick 24/7 all through the year. I wish there were some magic pill I could take and get rid of all these ailments. I'm starting to think God definitely hates me - why else would he make me go through all this?

 

at times i wish some people would just drop dead. scum on Earth eating up its resources without making any contribution whatsoever to the lives of those around them or related to them. why does God let such filth populate this planet? why does God boast about heaven and hell and the hereafter when he can't do nothing to people literally ruining others' lives in the here and now? i'm finding myself going away from religion once again - too many questions that remain unanswered.

The more God tests you, the more he loves you.  He knows you can handle it.  Otherwise, he wouldn't have allowed such things to befall you.

You are pre-diabetic because you haven't been eating! Free will, sister, that's why there are evil people in the world. Because without the option of evil there is no option of good.

Do what you need to do to make the changes that you need!

I hope I don't sound too harsh; I really hope things are better for you soon, before you run out of hope.

Don't give up hope, I know that you are depressed but be patient; Although scum may enjoy power and enjoy hurting others, the evil "filth" of this world cannot escape death and will be held accountable for their actions in the Hereafter.

I am sorry about your pre-diabetes, I heard it can be cured by using dietary restrictions for a set amount of time, but I don't know the specifics. Also, if you don't eat, your pre-diabetes may blossom into diabetes and trust me, I have known diabetic people and trust me, diabetes is no walk in the park, very painful. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemies. Please don't give up, Apo. Life is frustrating, the world is cruel but most importantly this life and world is temporary and you are not alone. There will always be more questions than answers in this life, just don't let get you down. I don't blame God for my condition, my struggles or the jerks I meet in life. It is difficult but I try to remain positive in life. For if I were to become negative, the world would crush my soul and leave me broken. I will keep you in my du'as, as I cherish our friendship and I look up to you as if you were my big sister.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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!

Heard it in a lecture of Ostad Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi. I'm sure it's legit.

Is it from the same source that said Einstien died a muslim?

When I was in Iran one of the professor told us Ibn Taymiyya may have changed his mind about Shiism after meeting Allama Hilli but before he could write another book he was taken to jail and died.
