No Place For Racism

Racism,  Image, Picture
When we look around and observe carefully we will notice discrimination in our society. Wheresoever it may be in offices, restaurants, or even local malls, we people discriminated each other, on the sole basis of skin colour, cast creed, religions, cultures. yes of course race.

We may define racism as the hatred of one person by another or the belief that another person is less than human because of skin colour, language, customs, place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person.  This can then lead to abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another community on the basis of such a belief. That is how the slave trade began many years ago.

I don’t believe in borders, in barriers, in flags. I think that we all belong, independent of latitude and longitude, to the same family, the human family. ~Vittorio Arrigoni

Say no to racism. Say yes to equality.
Racism is one of the severe diseases of human society. Racism has birthed many of society’s ills. Discrimination, separation, and segregation are products of a racist mentality. When one race acts out its superior beliefs in a society, there is no room for harmony or community.

Racists tend to feel threatened by anyone who is from a different race, religion, or culture. It comes from ignorance and fear brought on by stereotypes.
Racism affects badly, if anyone experiences racism of any kind, they can feel lonely and, getting depressed, sad. Like bullying, they may also try and avoid situations where racist behaviour could occur, and pretend to be ill, play truant from school, or be scared to leave their house.
We are not born racist and racism is not in our genes. It comes from our views and beliefs that develop as we grow up. We can be influenced by friends, family, newspapers, and society in general. Racism is abnormal and unacceptable, it is based on ignorance and fear. It’s serious stuff and one that we all want to avoid.

racism,  Image, Picture
Racism is treating someone differently or unfairly simply because 
they belong to a different ethnic community.
Just treat all people as people:
Islam is the most anti-racist and anti-prejudicial way of life. Islam calls for equality and brotherhood of mankind. No racism. no superiority, no tribalism but kindness and respect to the other. Allah (God) doesn't look at the colour of our skin; He looks at the level of our Imaan (Faith).
Allah says in Quran:
'O people! We created you from one man and one woman and made you branches and tribes that you may recognise one another. Undoubtedly, the most respected among you in the sight of Allah is he who is more pious, verily, Allah is knowing, Aware.  Surah Al-Hujurat : Ayat 13

No racism, we are the same.
Messenger eradicated the problem of racial or colour discrimination so successfully he said; "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action."

You Smile, I Melt

Image, Picture, smile
Smile! Why? Because you can.
Always wear a smile, not because life is full of reasons to smile but because your smile itself is a reason for many 
others to smile.
Smiling is a natural drug, a stress relief Smiling lowers blood pressure, smiling boosts immune system.

Be A Gentleman

A man can be as great as he wants to be.

Real men do cry and they do show emotion. 

Asking for directions is what real smart men do.

Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.

I Am A Woman

Image, Picture, quote,  respect woman
A Letter To The West That Raised Me
By Yasmin Mogahed
Growing up, you read me the Ugly Duckling. And for years I believed that was me. I am a woman—that ugly duckling among men. For so long you taught me I was nothing more than a bad copy of the standard.
I couldn’t run as fast or lift as much. I didn’t make the same money and I cried too often. I grew up in a man’s world where I didn’t belong.

Lower Your Gaze And Be Modest

People need to be reminded about the "Male Hijab".
Image, Picture, lower your gaze
Allah (God) created us with desires and urges, He also revealed to us sufficient and complete guidance to properly channel these desires. 

A Story Of A Muslim Brother and A Hospital Nurse
There was a companion of ours in Glasgow who became ill and was hospitalised. He was admitted for three days and on the fourth day the attendant nurse said, “Marry me”. 
He [the brother in Glasgow] asked, “Why? I am a Muslim, you and I cannot become companions.” 
She said, “I’ll become Muslim”. 
“What’s the reason?” it was asked.

We And Our Parents

Being dutiful to parents is one of the keys to enter Paradise.

Image, Picture, parents
Give your parents roses while they are alive, not dead.
Once, while conversing with Almighty Allah, Prophet Musa/Moses (Peace Be Upon Him) requested: "O' Lord! I desire to meet the person, who is to be my companion in Paradise."

Jibril (Gabriel) descended and informed Prophet Musa/Moses (Peace Be Upon Him) that his companion was to be a butcher who lived in a certain place. Prophet Musa/Moses (Peace Be Upon Him) set out in search of him and arrived at his shop, when he noticed a youth, resembling a night watchman, busy selling meat.

More Prayers Less Worries

Many times in life we pray, but we don't receive specific answers to our prayers. There are many reason why we do not get our payers answered. And in the result we feel sick, broken, disappointed and defeated.
I think it is very important to understand that why our payers are unanswered and how to get answers to our prayers.

Human For Sale

Image, Picture, human trafficking
Human Trafficking is a heinous crime against humanity and an international issue. Every country in the world is affected by trafficking. Indeed human trafficking has been institutionalized; you may say a lucrative industry.
Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Human trafficking usually affects women and children. Human trafficking depends on the use of force, fraud, or compels to exploit a person for profit. It has a worst impact on individual victims. Trafficking is a crime that violates the fundamental human rights of its victims.

Discover Islam

Islam Promote Peace

Image, Picture, Islam, Peace

Allah means by literal definition, 'The only absolute that which is worshiped'.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) as a mercy to mankind, his mission was for the whole world. He was sent to perfect morals and character.
Islam by definition means surrender and submission only to the One True Creator (Allah).
A Muslim by definition means one who surrenders and submits to the laws of Allah (God). Allah says about Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) Peace Be Upon Him, "When his Lord said to him, "Surrender" (be a Muslim), submitted he, 'I surrendered to Him (as a Muslim), Who is the Lord of all the worlds'. Surah Al-Baqara:Ayat 131
Islam described by the Divine Book Quran, it is the most comprehensive book available to mankind for guidance and nothing has been omitted from it.

Good Muslim, Good Human Being.

A Secret Fighting

Today; I am going to pull your attention towards a very sensitive topic. A secret struggle that takes place among those, who are habitual of it. It is a struggle against their own body, if a person will not fight against it, it will take complete hold on doer and make him/her slave of dirty and lustful desires. Mostly people even not realize what is it. It is a private behavior rarely shared or discussed in public. I have chosen to write about masturbation a topic which is commonly perceived as taboo because it is an unpleasant and unethical act. Masturbation is very evil indeed, it is impermissible (haraam) to masturbate.
It is very delicate topic need to be discussed under Islamic and ethical, healthy and positive point of view just for awareness and cure sake.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

image, picture, love
We all have a basic need to be loved. When we are children we are content with parental love and family bonds make us feel satisfy and secure. When we mature and we form romantic relationships, most individuals feel a natural need to love and be loved in return.
Love is so common word in our everyday vocabulary. Specially guys use love like it's not a big thing. Guys randomly throw “I love you” around like it’s nothing, so girls! do not flatter your self.

Wide Your Vision

Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours.
If we build walls around us then we will never feel the pain of others. Our sympathy shall be limited only to us, and we will always feel downtrodden and also all time feel pity for our self. Do not be self-centered like greedy selfish being. Wide your vision, come to the position of other people (those are helpless and needy) wear their shoes and now see the world, it'll surely seem to you totally different.

Three Words

There are many things that you can do to strengthen your relationships. Often the most effective thing you can do involves saying just three words. When spoken sincerely, these statements often have the power to develop new friendships, deepen old ones and even bring healing to relationships that have soured.
The following three-word phrases can be tools to help develop every relationship.

image, picture, help
Can I Help?
Good friends see a need and then try to fill it. When they see a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they jump in and help out.

Boyfriend And Girlfriend Relationship

image, picture, relationship
Islam is a strong advocate of marriage.
We live in a society where communication with the opposite sex is compuslory at some point of our lives. But as for a having a relationship with the opposite sex is concerned, this is indeed forbidden in Islam. Boyfriend and girlfriend relationship has become a common thing also in our Pakistani society. People think there is no harm in having such relation. It has become so common that we don't feel ashamed of it. In Islam, there is no such thing as a girlfriend-boyfriend relationship, it is strictly forbidden.

Anger

The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger. (Sahih Bukhari)

When anger rises, think of the consequences.

Anger always comes from frustrated expectations.

Being angry doesn't mean that you have right to be cruel.

Suicide Is Not An Answer To Life’s Problems


image, picture, suicide
Suicide is a global issue. Nearly one million suicides occur worldwide every year, which means that every forty (40) seconds somebody dies by suicide, with anywhere from 10 million to 20 million suicide attempts annually. According to some research suicide rates are 50%-60% higher than the official rate. The current attitude and dilemmas, unlike in previous times, suicide is so common. The reasons why a person to commit suicide are multifaceted and complex as the thousands of people who do so every year. These days it seems suicide among teens and young adults is out of control. We are regularly hearing reports about someone taking their life.

Allah Loves Me The Most

Few days back my friend consoled me by these kind words, "You have a weak relation with Allah (God) so you take every little matter as a big problem and believe that everyone is a saint." My other friend explained a very beautiful point to me, "You should release your tears for Allah (God) specially when you ask pardon from HIM."
These words help me a lot while I was composing my self and my shattered trust. So the following post is especially for my self, it's indeed self-realization. Insha Allah I will make a strong bond with Allah The One and Only God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe.

A Muslim Woman Can Propose To A Muslim Man

image, picture, relationships, Muslim couples
A Muslim woman is allowed to approach a man with a marriage proposal, if she comes to know of a man who has good character, Deen and would be a good husband, she can approach him in an honorable way with a marriage proposal. This may be seen as improper or brazen in some cultures. But that is a cultural attitude, not an Islamic one.

Guard Your Heart Girls

image, picture, relationshipsheart
Heart is so precious and fragile, and yet so complicated, that there are parts and feelings it holds that are specially reserved as a gift for married couples. This results in the need for us to be alert and guarding our hearts at all times; primarily, when it comes to relationships. 

This is especially true for females, who tend to have a God-given desire to be loved, cherished, protected and understood by an earthly, godly man. This is not a bad thing at all, except for when we go seeking it from a bunch of different guys through flirting or relationships, instead of realizing that Allah (God) already fulfills this desire, and only our God-given future husband could help amplify it.

Ramadan is the Islamic month of fasting. Fasting begins at the break of dawn and ends at sunset. During this time, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and sex. Actully the idea of fasting is not to starve oneself but it set a different spiritual plane altogether. 
And is intended to teach Muslims about patience, humility, and spirituality. Muslims fast for the sake of Allah (God) and to offer more prayer than usual.

Thank You Allah, For Giving Us A Lot More Than Our Share


"And O beloved, when My bondsmen ask you about Me, then I am indeed near, accept the call of the caller when he calls upon Me; then they should obey My Commands and believe in Me, so that they may get the way."
 (Surah Al-Baqara : Ayah186)

We ask, He gives.
We cry, He listens.
We call, He runs.
We sin, He forgives.
We repent, He forgives.
We knock, He opens.
We attend, He welcomes.
We nag, He hears.
We request, He accepts.
We questions, He solves.
We plea, He resolves.
We take, He provides.
We insist, He grant.
Everything we do, is about us and everything He does, is about us.
So
"Which of the favours of your Lord can you deny?" (Surah Ar-Rahman : 18)
"And He gave you many things you asked for. And if you count the favours of Allah, you cannot count. No doubt, man is very unjust, un-thankful." (Surah Ibrahim : Ayat 34)

thank you God, Alhumdulillah, blessings
Allah bestwoned upon us countless blessings. 
If we start writing them all, our life would come to end but Allah’s blessing will never finish.
To give thanks for blessings is itself a blessing, one can never cease to give thanks.
A believer thanks Allah for everything and in every situation.

We And Relationships

image, picture, patience, relationships
I've noticed in my life that we all want to be loved, understood and cared about. But mostly what we get, instead, is a feeling of being misunderstood, rejected and betrayed.
In society we're taught it's not OK to feel pain or hurt. Men, especially, feel they're not strong if they feel pain or hurt. It's crucial that we allow ourselves to feel those vulnerable feelings, because we can't heal them unless we're willing to feel them.

Miscellaneous

image, picture, patience, silence
image source;internet
There are three phases of knowledge in Islam. When a Muslim has a little bit of knowledge, he or she speaks a lot. When a Muslim has increased his or her knowledge, he or she feels humble. When a Muslim has collected an abundance of knowledge, he or she is silent. In Islam, "silence is a mark of intelligence."

Wait Patiently:
"When Allah(God) knows you’re ready for the responsibility of commitment, He’ll reveal the right person under the right circumstances. Wait patiently. Don’t waste your time searching and wishing. Grow and be ready, you’ll see Allah (God) will give you a love story far better than you could ever dream of."

Is Life Just A Lie?

image, picture, patience, life
In life whenever we got cheated unexpectedly by people who are not only around us but also are really very close to us, at those times we feel Life is a lie. We feel crap. It hurts so bad and feels so empty inside.

A guy shared his feelings when he got cheated in love. 
He said: "I have just experienced the worst break up ever and I know how absolutely devastating and heart crunching feel when long distance relationship ended for no reason. I cared about her deeply, I believed that our relationship was passionate and we both love each other. And now how I tell a story of a person, who betrayed me and that same person promise me to be everything in my life. I took my relationship with her as a fairy tale relationship. But now I lost my love my dream my innocent future.
