I r i s P u p i l C o r n e a L e n s R e t i n a

"Opening the eyes of the spirit takes a certain courage and a moment of decision...The moment of realization that maybe it is all real is where submission to God begins. It is not the end of the story by any means, but only the beginning."
--> Ruqaiyyah Wari
And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive
--> IRIS LYRICS <--

hmmm

good piece of work sister, we have yet so much today but we still aint happy. wot do you think sister, Allah has given us so many resouces, do we use these resources to our advantage, do we thank Allah for giving us beautifull features and why are we humans never happy with what we got, even wen we have everything in this world.

Do you ask yourself this on a day to day, and dnt you think we so lucky to live in this country.
Only Allah knows best.
sister get back to me.

hope ure well, keep up the good blogging.

with respect you are a good person. may Allah bless us all.

Ameeeeen.........................

BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS

TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS POEM:


Here's to a brother, once one of us
He kept to the faith, good and pious
But where is he now? oh Allah, I beseech
He's out Friday Night doing drugs on the streets

Did you see it coming , did any of you know?
If you did, did you help him those few years ago?
Now his life is meaningless and bleak
Once a strong brother, now he is weak

Here's to our sister, once righteous and pure
She prayed and she fasted, her Deen was for sure
Now, at eighteen, she's no longer chaste
Her innocent spirit, all gone to waste

God gave us all eyes for us to see
Yet we each still claim "it will never be me"
And these two from our Ummah once claimed that too
SO..My Sisters, My brothers, IT COULD ALWAYS BE YOU

may allah bless us all.

ameen...........

It could be us.. Walllahi that thought scares me.. May Allah protect us..
The other day I had to go drop my siblings to their school & saw it all.. Girls with makeup and all hair colors , tight pants, guys with weird hairdos and eyes popping on the girls.. Flirting, songs.. As if it's a *******
I was like.. Sis can be that, or li’l pudding.. OH, OR MEEEEEEEE!!
I gave them a lecture about life ;) They always expect those lectures coming anytime ;)
And gave it to myself to..

And regarding not being pleased, wallahi I do that sometimes.. "Wish this was that, and that was this"
But then I fix it right away.. TAKE HOLD OF OUR NAFS AIN'T THAT EASY, BUT IT'S WOOOOOOORTH IT!!

Only Allah subhanahu wa tala knows how good or bad I am.. You've taught me to double-check, and not take things as they look.. Remember?

May Allah save you and I and everyone.. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Jannah.. Teslamy :)
I always think of words.. ANd where they come from, I mean how did they start.. Teslamy; ie teslamy men kol makrooh wa shar :)

Brother Irfan,
By the way, regarding the link.. I only pointed at the 'seeing with both eyes' article.. And not anything ese.. There is some extremism around the corners.. SO watch out!

With respect,
