O Allah!


O Allah we cry to You
And we implore

You not to turn us away

From Your door

For we are drowning

Rescue us to the shore

Send Your blessings on us

Like a downpour

أفلا يعقلون

I don't know why my friends consider this film as a scaring movie when I sent it to them !!!!!!!

For me, I don't believe that it's a kind of thrill movies. I believe that it's nothing but a real movie that perfectly matches our daily real life... Yea, we may all have already faced such situations by ourselves or even by some persons we know.

Really it’s amazing, specially its actors, or – to be accurate – its characters.  I liked “Hassan” very much, cause he represents the true Muslim that should always be calm, powerful, realistic, and mental in his believes. And the true friend who never gives his friends up, and be always their guide to the right way by the right manner.

I also believe that “Yusuf” is a representation for a man that Allah loved him till he just refused responding to Allah’s generous. You may now wondering why I believe so, Aren’t you? Well, I once watched an episode for Mr. Amr Khaled talking about people that Allah loves them and wants them to be blessed with his – subhanu wa taalla – blessings. He’d mentioned many signs. I remember those:
  • Having good friends who always help and guide to Allah’s way (such as Hassan).
  • Having some signs and alerts to wake the person up (such as the dream “El-Ro2ya”).
  • Being able to follow the mental and logical thinking (as being persuaded by Hassan’s point of view regarding if the human is “Mu7’ayar” or “Mussayar”).
But frustrating, many people don’t give any attentions to those signs, and time after time, they may deserve a harmful punish from Allah (such as Yusuf’s end). May Allah guide us all to his right way, and bless us with all His mercy and generous, Ameen.

Finally, take care for Allah’s signs, surly you already have many. As by default, all humans – not just Muslims – are being surrounded by Allah’s love and blessings.

Now, watch it, and tell me, Am I right??

Look Into My Eyes



Look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
You don't see a damn thing
'cause you can't relate to me
You're blinded by our differences
My life makes no sense to you
I'm the persecuted one
You're the red, white and blue

Each day you wake in tranquility
No fears to cross your eyes
Each day I wake in gratitude
Thanking God He let me rise
You worry about your education
And the bills you have to pay
I worry about my vulnerable life
And if I'll survive another day

Your biggest fear is getting a ticket
As you cruise your Cadillac
My fear is that the tank that has just left
Will turn around and come back

Yet, do you know the truth of where your money goes?
Do you let the media deceive your mind?
Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows?
Someone tell me ...

Ooohh, let's not cry tonight
I promise you one day it's through
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters
Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters

See I've known terror for quite some time
57 years so cruel
Terror breathes the air I breathe
It's the checkpoint on my way to school
Terror is the robbery of my land
And the torture of my mother
The imprisonment of my innocent father
The bullet in my baby brother
The bulldozers and the tanks
The gases and the guns
The bombs that fall outside my door
All due to your funds
 
You blame me for defending myself
Against the ways of my enemies
I'm terrorized in my own land (what)
And I'm the terrorist?

American , do you realize that the taxes that you pay
Feed the forces that traumatize my every living day
So if I won't be here tomorrow
It's written in my fate
May the future bring a brighter day
The end of our wait
 
Ooohh, let's not cry tonight, I promise you one day it's through
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,
Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters.

Islam In History

I've once watched a documentary film about Muslims In South of Asia… I don't know why I was surprised and feel a strange feeling!!

Those people are Muslims, just like me... We've many things in common, as Islam states that all Muslims – all over the whole world – are connected together with a brotherhood relationship...

But, at the same time, We aren't the same at all!!!!! They have there won customs and life styles, which are completely different from mine, as an Egyptian!!!

So, How it comes on that way?!!! How we could be Muslims, believing in only one God, and in The Prophet – PBUH – and all God's messengers – God's Blessings be Upon all of Them – do the same worships and Allah's commends, and be absolutely different?!!!!! 

Really this question was in my mind for a very long time, and I was searching for a satisfied answer, that really could explain this issue… I also felt so bad during this time, I thought that I couldn't understand my religion well… And there is a lot that I'm missing about it.

One day, while I was browsing the internet, suddenly I found those words:
"... In history, Islam showed itself to be culturally friendly and, in that regard, has been likened to a crystal clear river. Its waters (Islam) are pure, sweet, and life-giving but, having no color of their own , reflect the bedrock (indigenous culture) over which they flow. In China, Islam looked Chinese; in Mali, it looked African. Sustained cultural relevance to distinct peoples, diverse places, and different times underlay Islam’s long success as a global civilization ..."
You can't imagine my surprise while I'm reading those words. Really it was the answer I was looking for. Yeah,  that was the reason of why people looks different form each others.

However Islam makes all Muslims are equal. But their characteristics are kept as they are, as long as they are good and don't conflict with its main principles. And this makes every Muslim, but ever every human, feel secure and independency as he/she belongs to Islam.

And actually what surprised me was the person who said those words. He was Dr. Umar Faruq Abdallah, a leading American Muslim scholar and thinker. He wrote them in his book "Islam the Cultural Imperative"!!!.

Really this religion is nothing but a mercy for all mankind. And Allah is the most merciful God, and there is no god but Him. All praise is to Allah and All glory is to Allah.

I Only Ask Of God


I only ask of God
He won't let me be indifferent to the suffering
That the very dried up death doesn't find me
Empty and without having given my everything

I only ask of God
He won't let me be indifferent to the wars
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people
It is a big monster which treads hard
On the poor innocence of people
 People, people, people

I only ask of God
He won't let me be indifferent to the injustice
That they do not slap my other cheek
After a claw has scratched my whole body

Allah Knows


When you feel all alone in this world
And there’s nobody to count your tears
Just remember no matter where you are
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you’re carrying a monster load
And you wonder how far you can go
With every step on that road that you take
Allah knows
Allah knows

No matter what inside or out
There’s one thing of which there’s no doubt
Allah knows
Allah knows

And whatever lies in the heavens and the earths
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you find that special someone
Feel your whole life has barely begun
You can walk on the moon, shout it to everyone
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you gaze with love in your eyes
Catch a glimpse of Paradise
And you see your child take a first breath of life
Allah knows
Allah knows

No matter what inside or out
There’s one thing of which there’s no doubt
Allah knows
Allah knows

And whatever lies in the heavens and the earths
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows
Allah knows

When you lose someone close to your heart
See your whole life fall apart
And you try to go on but it seems so hard
Allah knows
Allah knows

See we all have a path to choose
Through the valleys and hills we go
Through the ups and the downs
Never fret never frown
Allah knows
Allah knows

No matter what inside or out
There’s one thing of which there’s no doubt
Allah knows
Allah knows

And whatever lies in the heavens and the earth
Every star in this whole universe
Allah knows
Allah knows

Every grain of sand
In every desert land
He knows
Every shade of palm
Every closed hand
He knows
Every smirk and tear
On every eye lash
He knows

Every thought I have
Every word I share
He knows
Allah knows

Welcome :)


Asslamu Alikum Everybody;
Well, I don't have too much to say at the first time ... perhaps I'd have too much to say later on ;)

So, please, feel completely free to leave all your comments and thoughts wherever you wish, whenever you like, whoever you are ;) ... I'm one of those who enjoy "Listening" to others more than "Talking" to others :D
