Raghawy saboon ;)

Just by typing this title, I can’t help laughing.. It’s hilarious.. LOL :D Okay, let me break it down for you.. Raghawy is the plural of raghwa.. And that stands for foam.. Saboon is soap.. Raghawy saboon i.e. soap’s foams/bubbles.. And that’s what my dearly loved uncle calls people who live on our pretty planet earth by.. Raghawy saboon.. They bubble up & baaaaaaaam, they’re gone! They also foam over meaningless things.. They’re just raghawy saboon.. To prove my point, I asked one well-educated sane muslim man about when does he think he’d be ready for death.. He said “when I succeed in my business”.. And a second later, he said: “also when God is pleased with me..”.. I said, one thing.. Pick one.. He said: “When I succeed in my business; ‘cuz if that happens, it’ll indicate God’s contentment with my existence..” !!!!!!!!!!

He sends down water from the sky, causing the valleys to overflow, then the rapids produce abundant foam. Similarly, when they use fire to refine metals for their jewelry or equipment, foam is produced. GOD thus cites analogies for the truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it goes to waste, while that which benefits the people stays close to the ground. GOD thus cites the analogies.” ~ Qur’an [13:17] ~

Here’s its detailed explanation.. In the explanation, it's clarified that gold and silver are beneficial & get used & foam coming to the surface vanishes & just fizzles out.. Which reminded me of your display name Abdo.. I wonder if that’s where you took “gold” from (& chose it to be your display name).. As in its essence.. Not gold as in gold’s worth, nor its materialistic value, but rather its useful one :)

Talking of which, I love how those bubbly bubbles show up on my lappy’s screen when I’m not around ;)

His dreams are like commercials

But her dreams are picture perfect and

Our dreams are so related though they're often underestimated

La da da da da da

Well I was eating lunch at the D. L. G.

When this little girl came and she sat next to me

I never seen nobody move the way she did

Well she did and she does and she'll do it again

When you move like a jellyfish

Rhythm don't mean nothing

You go with the flow

You don't stop

Move like a jellyfish

Rhythm is nothing

You go with the flow

You don't stop

If you would only listen

You might just realize what you're missing"

~Jack Johnson lyrics ~

How can two people grow up in two totally different cultures and end up thinking the same. This was a beautiful and realistic post. The soap bubbles analogy for humans is so true. This reminds me of a bitter post I once wrote about people following dreams as if they are gonna live for ever. People, in order to look for a better life, forget the present moment.

Not necessarily forget the present moment.. Just forget that they're somehow superheroes!

If everyone lived & only worked for what they need, & gave as much as they could, things are gonna be cooler than the way they are..

And they'll end up useful & not RAGHAWY SABOON..

It's scary how many bubles are jumping around me..

He cheated on her.. Cheated again.. And never stopped...

She's using him.. And will spend the rest of her life doing that..

I am used to call the same idea "Balaleeeeeen".. the plural of Ballona :D

Balloons mondo bizzaro..

and stinger, that's where the problem lies, but not forget the present moment, but rather forget everything in the name of seeking a better life, and everything here includes the necks they step on in their pursuit for that better life, not minding the disgusting *snap* sound as those necks break under their feet...

And in the end, what is acquired is nothing more than images of things, raghawy saboon that have no substance.. almost no existence.. a balloon that has a lot of pictures drawn on its thin crust, but nothing but air inside..

coz noone's gonna take anything with him but what fills the crust.. you take Air then you have no weight..

Gold has a long story behind it :D

I loved your balaleen theory.. And the drawings on its thin crust reminded me of last eid.. Me & my siblings drew on a loooooooottaaaaaaaa balaleen.. The way their lives ended was dramatic.. LOL

I love this theory!

*balloons mondoooo bizzaroooo*

Inspiring thought.
There is a hadeeth by Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) which he states that there would come a time when nations from all over will attack muslims, like ants attack food.When the Sahaba asked him,whether the muslims would be a few? He replied, on the contrary, but they would be like "غثاء السيل".

I always remember this hadeeth whenever I am somewhere crowded, and i always think to myself "yaaah..koll deh naas malhash lazma? wana kaman moken akoon menhom."

NOOOOOOOOOO.. InshaAllah ehna mish minhom.. InshaAllah not :)

I hate crowded places, don't you?
