When I Change, The World Changes

I've to say that I've been impressed with this film!! Really I loved it a lot, and I can't believe that I loved an Indian movie to that extend!!!

That little boy reminds me with one of my best ever friends. And those young kids remind me with my community ;)

Watch it carefully here:

Did u noticed the boy?! The look is his eyes?!
Did u noticed people's action towards the tree at the beginning?!
Did u noticed their actions towards each one another?!
Did u noticed that man who left his wife and kid in his car and joined the others?!
Did u noticed the police officers?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did u noticed when did the sun faded away?!!
Did u noticed when did it raised again?!!!!
Did u noticed .... ?!!!

If this situation was real, and u was there, who will u be?!!!!!!!!

وَضَرَبَ اللّهُ مَثَلاً رَّجُلَيْنِ أَحَدُهُمَا أَبْكَمُ لاَ يَقْدِرُ عَلَىَ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ كَلٌّ عَلَى مَوْلاهُ أَيْنَمَا يُوَجِّههُّ لاَ يَأْتِ بِخَيْرٍ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي هُوَ وَمَن يَأْمُرُ بِالْعَدْلِ وَهُوَ عَلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

The Circle Of Life

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the Circle of Life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps the great and small on the endless round
Music by: Elton John
Lyrics by: Tim Rice

Album: From the "Lion King I" film

يــــــا طـــير

يا طير أسير محبوس ... نفسك تطير بره

لحد ما تفرج ... إطرح لي كام بذرة

تكبر في قلبي الحر ... وتوصّل الفكرة

البذرة تبقي اتنين ... عشرين متين ملايين

يا قلبي يا مكسور ... متقضيهاش حزين

منتاش زعيم؟ جايز ... لكن وراك ملايين

لو بذرتك تطرح ... هيقوم صلاح الدين

صحيح مهوش انت ... بس انت كبرته

ربيته علي الفكره ... وبقت كما الشجرة

لو حتي مش قادره ... تطرح بذور حرة

البذرة تبقي اتنين ... عشرين متين ملايين

غناء: حمزة نمرة

The Art Of Saying "Thank You"!!

"Those who don't thank people, don't thank Allah!". This is one of the greatest social values that we -Muslims- have learned from our prophet Muhammad -PBUH-. I really feel so proud to have such a value in my believes :)

However, there's some people don't use it in a proper manner, and that annoy me so much!!!

I believe that when somebody do some favor for you "personally", you should say "thank you" to him/her. But in case that someone do something for you or for whatever, and you know that s/he do it for "the sake of Allah" then saying "thank you" would have no meaning here in this context!!

Think of it, this person isn't waiting for thanking words from you!! Instead, s/he is looking for them from Allah -Sunhanu Wa Taalaa-, Right??

All what I wanna to say is: Our prophet said "Thank people", but He didn't say "How" to do so. He left the choice to us, and for our own estimate of the situation and the personality of our fellows.

When you are to thank some fellow, think first of how to say it. You may take in account his own personality, the real purpose that made him do that favor, what motivate him most, what he loves, etc.

It maybe time consuming, but believe me, it worthy ;)

The Happy Memory We Need And Patronus Charm

Well, I'm not a fan of Harry Potter's movies or even books, you may consider me a fan of Ron Weasley character or the Weasleys in general and the Defense Against The Dark Art Courses :D. However, I've already watched the five movies, and some scenes from each movie was inspiring for me a lot.

Here, I'll take about a scene from "Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban" film. It's the scene when Harry ask Professor Lupin to teach him the Patronus Charm, in order to defense himself from the Dementors attacks. Take a look:

Maybe we, in real life, don't have Dementors, but no one can deny that life is full with experiences that absorb our happy memoirs and only leave us with the saddest and toughest ones :(.

And cumulatively, we keep in our minds only those horrible feelings of failures, fear of trying something new, and pains. Only one idea controls our minds "we can't do so... we are losers... this is beyond our capabilities... "

I believe that best solution for this is the Patronus Spell ;) .. Think of it.. Just close your eyes ... Concentrate... Explore your past... Have a happy and powerful memory... Allow it to fill you up... Lose yourself in it... Then go strongly and bravely towards your goal.

Don't have a happy and powerful memory in our past? Do you?! OK, no problem, then create it, just as Harry did. Imagine how happy you would be when you achieve your goals. Think of how much honor would you bring to your lovers and family when you did that achievement.

It's not inspired from a magical and fantasy world. Believe me, not at all!! I can't forget my beloved prophet Muhammad - PBUH - while the Muslims ware digging the Khandak Tunnel to defence the Maddina against the attacking army, and a huge rock was in the middle of the tunnel, and He - PBUH - came to it and said: "Allah is greater, Roma has been conquered for us", and hit the rock, and said again:"Allah if Greater ... Farris has been conquered for us", then hit the rock again, so the rock had been destroyed immediately!!

Muslims ware so scared at that time, all the Arabian Tribes ware on their way to Maddina to destroy it. But the prophet words make them all think in the happy and the powerful memory of spreading the words of Allah in the whole world.

True Muslim has nothing to fear from in this world. Except doing something would make Allah angry from him. Otherwise, He has all the power and courage to do anything, try everything new, and have new experiences in the world.

And what a happy memory Muslims can have than being in the paradis with our beloved Muhammad -PBUH- and his companies :)

This post is detected to all mankind in the whole world,
And specially for my best ever teams, GP Team, and Life Team :)
May Allah gather us in the Janna, as He gathered us in this life, Amin.

Shabah Ba3d 2awy!!!!!

Yesterday me and my friend Sandy went with Qafelet Resala to El-3ayatt village. It was a too long day, full with too much unforgettable scenes.

I'll tell you just one scene here. While we (me and Sandy) ware sitting witting for the packages to be ready for distributions on people in need, the other girls who ware with us start saying to us: "You both look like each others!! You look like being sisters, not just friends!!"

You know, lately when I showed my Mom my photos with my friends, she said: "What's this?!!! You all like each others!!!!"

I liked thier speach toooooooooooooooo much, and I wished to say:
"Yeah! You have no idea about our secret :-> ... We are in deed true sisters ... In Allah ... That's why we look like each others .. That's our secret :)"

I feel it's a very good sign. I feel that Allah has put in us all a common theme, that any one can notice it easly.

Thank you Allah for this blessing,
Thank you Allah for making me with you all my sisters,
Love You fe Allah :X

God Gives Us Many Gifts!

From the beauty of the morning light,
To evening's moonlight glow.

From the warmth of summer afternoons,
To winter's lovely snow.

From the closeness of our family ties,
To the kindness of our friends.

From the strength & hope we need each day,
To the joy & love He sends.

GOD gives us many precious gifts,
To treasure & to share.

But the greatest of them all is "Faith"

Just knowing He is there !!!

Try Life !!

Smooth roads never make good drivers.
Smooth sea never makes good sailors.
Clear skies never make good pilots.
Problem-free life never makes a strong person.
Be strong enough to accept the challenges of life.
Don’t ask life, ‘Why me?’.
Instead say, ‘Try me!’

Is It Me?! Or It's Just Some Devil's Work?!!

حد جاله مرة احساس انه محبوس جوه نفسه ؟!!
دايما حاسس بعدم راحة .. وكأنه عبارة عن شخصية بتحاول تلصم نفسها و تدرك ما السبب الحقيقي من و جودها في الحياة .. ويقعد يسأل نفسه كتيييير: هل أهدافي و اتجاهتي دي صح ولا أنا من "الذين ضل سعيهم في الحياة الدنيا و هم يحسبون أنهم يحسنون صنعا "؟!!
 ويشعر ان كل ما الزمن يمر يكون دايما إلي فات أحلى و أجمل من الحاضر .. ويقول ياريتني أقدر أرجع لمستوايا زي زمان!!
و بعد ما كان الواحد بيتأثر بأقل كلمة .. بقي محتاج مجهووووووووووووووود كببييييييييييييييييييير جدا علشان يسترجع احساس معين أو يحفز نفسه لعملٍ ما!!!!!!!!!
و كل ما الوقت يمر الحالة تزداد سوء و تدهورا .. لدرجة انه مش بيحاول يتريق على الناس المكبرة و الناس اإلي مش فارق معاها اي حاجة في اي حاجة!!!!!
يا ترى السبب ايه ؟؟؟؟!!!!!! ... دنيا؟؟!! هوى نفس؟؟؟!!!! عدم رضا من ربنا؟؟!!!!!!
يمكن اللي يقرأ الكام سطر اللي فاتوا دول يفتكر اني بتكلم عن شخصية ضائعة .. تايهة في الدنيا .. مالهاش اي هدف في الحياة .. عايشة كدا وخلاص من غير ما يكون ليها لازمه.. صح؟؟ طيب خليني أسأل سؤال ... لما هي اساسا شخصية فارغة من جواها ليه الموضوع دا شاغلها من الاول اصلا؟؟؟ ليه زعلانه على نفسها ؟؟!! وازاي ادركت انها مقصرة في حق ربها؟؟!!!
طبيعي جدا ان لو في حاجة مهمة جدا وغالية جدا على الواحد اكيييييد هايزعل جدااااااااااا لو فقدها، والعكس صحيح. طيب هوا ايه الموضوع دا بقي؟؟؟!!!!!!

الموضوع بكل بساطة، إن ما فيش حد بيشتغل لعمل وحلم كيبر قوي هدفه فيه إنه يبتغي رضى الله عز وجل، وينصر بيه الأمة دي، ويفرح بيه نبيه (صلى الله علية وسلم) يوم لقائة، إلا ولازم يلاقي إبتلاءات وامتحانات تختبر صدق نيته وقوة عزيمته لتحقيق الحلم دا.

"أحسب الناس أن يتركوا أن يقولوا ءامنا وهم لايفتنون* ولقد فتنا الذين من قبلهم فليعلمن الله الذين صدقوا وليعلمن الكاذبين" (العنكبوت:1-2)

اهدافنا واحلامنا موجوده علي قمة جبل .. فبالتالي اللي عايز يوصل للهدف بتاعه لازم يتسلق الجبل .. الناس اللي حست بالمسؤلية .. وعرفت انه لازم عليها انها تطلع الجبل .. وقررت بالفعل انها تتطلعه وتخوض التحدي .. لازم تمر باختبارات وامتحانات تكشف مدي قوة عزمها واصرارها وصدق نيتها.

المعروف ان تسلق الجبل مش ارض سهله معبدة .. لكنه كله صخور .. وفي نفس الوقت الطريق دايما متجه للأعلى وللأمام متجه ناحية الشمس.

"Our way is not soft grass, it’s a mountain path with lots of rocks. But it goes up wards, forward, towards the sun." Ruth Westheimer

وفي ناس قررت ان قمة جبلها اللي هاتطلعه هوا .. الجنة .. الفردوس الأعلي .. تحت عرش الرحمن بالظبط.

يعني العادي ان الطريق كدا كدا صعب جدا، وكمان قمته تحت عرش الرحمن مباشرة؟!!!! اكيد دي مهمة مش سهله .. واكيد مهمة كبيرة زي دي ربنا سبحانه وتعالى مش هيختار ويصطفي ليها إلا الناس اللي فيهم شىء ما جميل .. ناس أروه من أنفسهم خيرا .. ناس حبواه قوي .. وحبوا الرسالة جدا .. وقرروا انهم يشيلواها الي أن يشاء الله ..

في جانب تاني كمان .. جانب ان في شىء ما اسمه "ابليس" اقسم على اغواء ومحاربة كل من يحاول انه يفكر (مجرد تفكير) في انه يؤدي الوظيفة الاساسية اللي وبنا سبحانه وتعالي خلقنا ليها .. فالطبيعي انه بشتغل علي الناس دي (اللي قررت انها تقوم بوظيقتها) ويدخل عليهم من باب "انتم ناس سيئة .. انتم مهما عملتم مش هايتقبل منكم .. انتم اساسا ضايعين .. انتم فاكرين ان باللي بتعملواه دا هتغيروا الكون؟! .. ماتشوفوا انتوا مقصرين دا ايه؟! .. الخ"

اللي اقصده ان لو الواحد بتمر بيها ازمات او إبتلاءات (زي اللي اتكلمت عليها في الاول وغيرها كتير) .. اعتقد انه يطمن .. دي اشارة انه في الطريق الصح بإذن الله :) .. لو العكس هوا اللي حاصل، لااااااااازم يبتدي يقلق .. اكيييييد في حاجة غلط ساعتها!!

وواحدة من ارق واروع الآيات اللي تطمن الكثير منا قوله سبحانه: "ما كان لأهل المدينة ومن حولهم من الأعراب أن يتخلفوا عن رسول الله ولايرغبوا بأنفسهم عن نفسه ذلك بأنهم لايصيبهم ظمأ ولا نصب ولا مخمصة في سبيل الله ولا يطئون موطئا يغيظ الكفار ولا ينالون من عدو نيلا إلا كتب لهم بيه عمل صالح إن الله لا يضيع أجر المحسنين" (التوبة:120)
أسأل الله ان يحعلنا ممن من عليهم بالهدى والايمان، وان يتقبل منا احسن ما نعمل، وان يتجاوز عي سيئاتنا، وأن لا يزغ قلوبنا بعد إذ هدانا، وأن يهب لنا من لدنه رحمة إنه هو الوهاب، وأن يكفر عنا خطايانا، ويتوب علينا، إنه هم التواب الرحيم

اللهم آمين

الي من وعدتهم بأن ارد عليهم .. اتمنى اني اكون وفيت بوعدي .. ربنا يجمعنا سوا تحت عرشه في الجنة كما جمعنا سويا في الدنيا

التوكل في طالب الرزق

توكلت في رزقي على الله خالقي
وأيقنت أن الله لا شـك رازقـي
وما يك من رزقٍ فليس يفوتنـي
ولو كان في قاع البحار العوامق
سيأتي به الله العظيـم بفضلـه
ولو لم يكن مني اللسان بناطـق
ففي أي شـيءٍ تذهـب حسـرةً
وقد قسم الرحمن رزق الخلائق

The Path To Allah

People are always eager to know the path to Allah. In other words, they are keen to know how to win Allah's approval and avoid His displeasure and wrath. The Holy Qur'an abound with injunctions, guidelines, instances and deeds that will undoubtedly lead you to the path of Allah. Here’s some light on the things and deeds that lead people to the path of Allah as revealed in the Holy Qur'an and the Sunnah.

1- Love of the Prophet:
This love also makes you follow the life example of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in all his dealings and manners. Also this love is an indication of the love of Allah as stated in the Holy Qur'an, "Say: "If you do love Allah, follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Say: "Obey Allah and His Messenger. But if they turn back, Allah loves not those who reject Faith." (Qur'an, 3:31-32)
2- Spending your money for the sake of Allah:
You have to spend as much money as you can in charitable works and helping the needy to win Allah's pleasure because Allah says, "Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise)." (Qur'an, 9:111)
3- Forgiving others:
This is another way to win Allah's approval because Allah favors those who forgive other people because forgiveness raises man to the level of angels, "Let them forgive and overlook, do you not wish that Allah should forgive you? For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Qur'an, 24:22)
4- Avoiding the evils of human nature: 
Avoiding human vices such as envy, spying, gossip and backbiting will undoubtedly take man one step closer to the path of Allah, for Allah warns people against such evils, "O you who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, you would abhor it...But fear Allah. For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful." (Qur'an, 49:120)
5- Following the example of those who won Allah's approval:
Following the example of the former Prophets (and on top of them Prophet Muhammad, PBUH), pious predecessors and martyrs will also lead us to the path of Allah, and this is mentioned in the very first chapter of the Qur'an, "Guide us to the Straight Way. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). " (Qur'an, 1:6-7)

فضل الدعاء وشروطه وموانع استجابته

اثر الدعاء في البلاء
والدعاء من أنفع الأدوية. وهو عدو البلاء، يدافعه ويعالجه ويمنع نزوله ويرفعه أو يخففه إذا نزل.

وهو سلاح المؤمن كما روى الحاكم في صحيحه من حديث على بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه وكرم الله وجهه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "الدعاء سلاح المؤمن، وعماد الدين، ونور السماوات والأرض، وله مع البلاء ثلاث مقامات، أحدها أن يكون أقوي من البلاء فيدفعه، الثاني أن يكون أضعف من البلاء فيقوى عليه البلاء فيصاب به العبد، ولكن قد يخففه وإن كان ضعيفا، الثالث أن يتقاوما ويمنع كل واحد منهما صاحبه."

فائدة الإلحاح في الدعاء
ومن أنفع الادوية الالحاح فى الدعاء. وقد روى ابن ماجة في سننه من حديث أبي هريرة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "م ن لم يسئل الله يغضب عليه".

وفي صحيح الحاكم من حديث أنس عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: "لاتعجزوا فى الدعاء فانه لايهلك مع الدعاء أحد".

وذكر الاوزاعي عن الزهري عن عروة عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "إن الله يحب الملحين فى الدعاء".

موانع استجابة الدعاء
ومن الآفات التي تمنع ترتب أثر الدعاء عليه أن يستعجل العبد ويستبطئ الإجابة، فيستحسر (يمَلَّ) ويدع الدعاء، وهو بمنزلة من بذر بذرا أو غرس غرسا فجعل يتعاهده ويسقيه، فلما استبطأ كماله وإدراكه تركه وأهمله.

وفى البخاري من حديث أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "يستجاب لأحدكم ما لم يعجل، يقول دعوت فلم يستجب لي".

وفي صحيح مسلم عنه: "لا يزال يستجاب للعبد ما لم يدع بإثم أو قطيعة رحم، ما لم يستعجل. قيل: يا رسول الله ما الاستعجال؟ قال: يقول قد دعوت وقد دعوت فلم أر يستجاب لي، فيستحسر عند ذاك ويدع الدعاء."
شروط استجابة الدعاء
وإذا اجتمع مع الدعاء:
- حضور القلب وجمعيته بكليته على المطلوب
- وصادف وقتا من أوقات الإجابة الستة، وهي: الثلث الأخير من الليل، وعند الأذان، وبين الأذان والإقامة، و إدبار الصلوات المكتوبات، وعند صعود الإمام يوم الجمعة على المنبر حتى تقضى الصلاة، وآخر ساعة بعد العصر من ذلك اليوم.
- وصادف خشوعا في القلب، وانكسارا بين يدي الرب، و ذلا له وتضرعا ورقَّة،
- واستقبل الداعي القبلة،
- وكان على طهارة،
- ورفع يديه إلى الله تعالى،
- وبدأ بحمد الله والثناء عليه،
- ثم ثنى بالصلاة على محمد عبده صلى الله عليه وسلم،
- ثم قدم بين يدي حاجته التوبة والاستغفار؛
- ثم دخل على الله و ألح عليه في المسألة،
- وتملقه ودعاه رغبة ورهبة،
- وتوسل إليه بأسمائه وصفاته وتوحيده،
- وقدم بين يدي دعائه صدقة؛
فإن هذا الدعاء لا يكاد يرد أبدا، ولا سيما إن صادف الأدعية التي أخبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنها مظنة الإجابة أو أنها متضمنة للاسم الأعظم.

اسم الله الأعظم
فمنها ما في السنن وفي صحيح بن حبان من حديث عبد الله بن بريدة عن أبيه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم سمع رجلا يقول: "اللهم إني أسالك باني أشهد الله لا إله إلا هو الأحد الصمد الذي لم يلد ولم يولد ولم يكن له كفوا أحد"، فقال: "لقد سأل الله بالاسم الذي إذا سئل به أعطي وإذا دعى به أجاب". وفي لفظ: "لقد سألت الله باسمه الأعظم".

وفي السنن وصحيح بن حبان أيضا من حديث أنس بن مالك أنه كان مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جالسا ورجل يصلى ثم دعا فقال: "اللهم إني أسالك بأن لك الحمد لا إله إلا أنت المنان بديع السماوات والأرض يا ذا الجلال والإكرام يا حي يا قيوم"، فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: "لقد دعا الله باسمه العظيم الذي إذا دعى به أجاب وإذا سئل به أعطى".

الحديثين أحمد في مسنده وفى جامع الترمذي من حديث أسماء بنت يزيد أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "اسم الله الأعظم في هاتين الآيتين: (وإلهكم إله واحد لا إله إلا هو الرحمن الرحيم) (البقرة 163)، وفاتحة آل عمران (آلم الله لا إله إلا هو الحي القيوم)". قال الترمذي هذا حديث حسن صحيح.

وفى مسند أحمد وصحيح الحاكم من حديث أبي هريرة وأنس بن مالك وربيعة بن عامر عنه صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: "ألظوا بياذا الجلال والإكرام"؛ يعنى تعلقوا والزموها وداوموا عليها.

وفي جامع الترمذي من حديث أبي هريرة أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا أهمه الأمر رفع رأسه إلى السماء وإذا اجتهد في الدعاء قال: "يا حي يا قيوم".

وفى صحيح الحاكم من حديث أبي أمامة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "اسم الله الأعظم في ثلاث سور من القرآن البقرة وآل عمران وطه"، قال القاسم: فالتمستها فإذا هي آية (الحي القيوم).

وفي جامع الترمذي وصحيح الحاكم من حديث سعد بن أبي وقاص عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "دعوة ذي النون إذ دعا وهو في بطن الحوت (لا إله إلا أنت سبحانك إني كنت من الظالمين) إنه لم يدع بها مسلم في شيء قط إلا استجاب الله له". قال الترمذي حديث صحيح

وفى صحيح الحاكم أيضا أنه سمع النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وهو يقول: "أدلكم على اسم الله الأعظم؟ دعاء يونس، فقال رجل: يا رسول الله كان ليونس خاصة! فقال: ألا تسمع قوله (فاستجبنا له ونجيناه من الغم وكذلك نجيني المؤمنين)!. فأيما مسلم دعا بها في مرضه أربعين مرة فمات في مرضه ذلك أعطى أجر شهيد وان برأ برأ مغفور له.
وفي الصحيحين من حديث بن عباس أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يقول عند الكرب: "لا إله إلا الله العظيم الحليم، لا إله إلا الله رب العرش العظيم، لا إله إلا الله رب السماوات ورب الأرض رب العرش الكريم ".

وفى مسند الإمام أحمد من حديث عبد الله بن مسعود قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: "ما أصاب أحد قط هم ولا حزن فقال (اللهم إني عبدك بن عبدك بن أمتك ناصيتي بيدك ماض في حكمك عدل في قضاؤك أسألك اللهم بكل اسم هو لك سميت به نفسك أو علمته أحدا من خلقك أو أنزلته في كتابك أو استأثرت به في علم الغيب عندك أن تجعل القرآن العظيم ربيع قلبي ونور صدري وجلاء حزني وذهاب همي) إلا أذهب الله همه وحزنه وأبدله مكانه فرحا" فقيل: "يا رسول الله ألا نتعلمها؟" قال: "بل ينبغي لمن سمعها أن يتعلمها".

الظروف التي تقرن بالدعاء:
وكثيرا ما نجد أدعية دعا بها قوم فاستجيب لهم، فيكون قد اقترن بالدعاء ضرورة صاحبه وإقباله على الله، أو حسنة تقدمت منه جعل الله سبحانه إجابة دعوته شكرا لحسنته. أو صادف الدعاء وقت إجابة ونحو ذلك فأجيبت دعوته، فيظن الظان أن السر في لفظ ذلك الدعاء، فيأخذه مجردا عن تلك الأمور التي قارنته من ذلك الداعي.

وهذا كما إذا استعمل رجل دواء نافعا في الوقت الذي ينبغي على الوجه الذي ينبغي فانتفع به، فظن غيره أن استعمال هذا الدواء مجردا كاف في حصول المطلوب كان غالطا. وهذا موضع يغلط فيه كثير من الناس.

ومن هذا قد يتفق دعاؤه باضطرار عند قبر، فيجاب له، فيظن الجاهل أن السر للقبر، ولم يعلم أن السر للاضطرار وصدق اللجأء إلى الله. فإذا حصل ذلك في بيت من بيوت الله كان أفضل وأحب إلى الله.

الدعاء كالسلاح:
والأدعية والتعوذات بمنزلة السلاح. والسلاح بضاربه، لا بحده فقط. فمتى كان السلاح سلاحا تاما لا آفة به، والساعد ساعد قوي، والمانع مفقود، حصلت به النكاية في العدو. ومتى تخلف واحد من هذه الثلاثة، تخلف التأثير.

فإن كان الدعاء في نفسه غير صالح، أو الداعي لم يجمع بين قلبه ولسانه في الدعاء، أو كان ثم مانع من الإجابة، لم يحصل الأثر.

منقول من كتاب الداء والدواء أو الجواب الكافي لمن سأل عن الدواء الشافي
للإمام ابن القيم الجوزية

Some Day Out Of The Blue

I’m in love with this song. Every time I here it, I get lost in my memories with my best ever friends. I feel that it just for us :)

Some day out of the blue
In a crowded street
Or a deserted square
I'll turn and I'll see you
As if our love were new
Some day we can start again,
Some day soon

Here comes the night
Here come the memories
Lost in your arms
Down in the foreign fields

Not so long ago
Seems like eternity
Those sweet afternoons
Still capture me

I still believe
I still put faith in us
We had it all
And watched it slip away
Where are we now
Not where we want to be
Those hot afternoons
Still follow me

Some day out of the blue
Maybe years from now
Or tomorrow night
I'll turn and I'll see you
As if we always knew
Some day we would live again,
Some day soon

Artist: Elton John
Album: From the movie "The Road To Elderado"

Wisdome From Kinematechs :D

Couple days ago, I was waiting for installing Windows Server on my machine in Kinematechs; and I found a small book called “Wisdom For The New Millennium” on a table near to me. That book contains amazing quotes for great people. I wrote down some of them (that’s why I called them “Wisdom Of Kinematechs” :D).

So please, enjoy.

- Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom. “Theodore Isaac Rubin”

- To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk disappointment. But risks must be taken because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, sees nothing, has nothing, and is nothing. He can’t learn, feel, change, grow, love, and live. “Auther Unknown”

- Stand through life firm as a rock in the sea, undisturbed and unmoved by its ever-rising waves. “Hazrat Inayat Khan”

- There is no such thing as a great talent without great will-power. “Honore De Balzac”

- The glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time you fall. “Chinese proverb”

- Stroms make oaks take deeper root. “George Herbert”

- Our way is not soft grass, it’s a mountain path with lots of rocks. But it goes up wards, forward, towards the sun. “Ruth Westheimer”

- Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that?! We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that thing, at whatever cost, must be attained. “Marie Curie”

Don’t get me wrong! I didn’t caused any system crash till now. I was just switching from Linux Ubuntu to Windows Server. Does a compiler crash counted?!! :D

حبك يلهمنا

في رمضان اللي فات، كان أ. احمد الشقيري قدم حلقة في برنامج خواطر بعنوان (حبك يلهمنا)، وما شاء الله كانت من اقوي الحلقات اللي مست القلب قوي.

النهاردة واحدة صحبتي بعتتلي فيلم وثائقي عن مهرجان جوائز المحبة. بجد الفيلم رائع جدا ما شاء الله. فيه كمية روحانيات حميلة جدا وقوية جدا.

احيانا من كتر السلبيات اللي بنشوفها حولينا او في وسائل الاعلام المختلفة بنحس ان الروحانيات دي مش موجودة عندنا خالص!! لكن سبحان من منّ علينا بالنعمة دي وخصنا بيها اننا نحس بيها ونعيش بيها، لاننا دلوقتي احوج ما نكون ليها.

ربنا يديمها علينا وعلى كل المسلمين نعمة، ويجمهنا جميعا مع كل اللي بنحبهم في صحبته صلى الله عليه وسلم، ونكون من الناس اللي هايقابلهم وهو فرحان بيهم

انه ولي ذلك والقادر علي

Little Wonders

Everyone on this plant has a dream …

The question is ... How far you’re willing to go to make it come true??!!

But the funny thing about chasing dreams is that no one can do it by his own!!

And the journey would always take you places you’d never imagine.

You may need to always keep in mind that:

“From Failure you Learn, from Success … Not Too Much”.

And around here, however, we don’t look backward for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we are curious… And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths…
So all you have to do is to …

Keep Moving Forward

Let it go, let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know, the hardest part is over
Let it in, let your clarity define you
In the end, we will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made in these small hours
These little wonders, these twists & turns of fate
Time falls away … but these small hours …
These small hours still remain

Let it slide, let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine until you feel it all around you
And I don't mind if it's me you need to turn to
We’ll get by,
It's the heart that really matters in the end

All of my regret will wash away some how
But I can not forget the way I feel right now
Inspired from Pixar animation film "Meet The Robensons"
Song for: Rob Thomas
Follow the links, so you can listen to the song in English or in Arabic.

Finding Purpose In Your Life

Discover your soul and its path. Align your personality with your soul. Until that happens, you won't be able to give the gifts you were meant to. Remind yourself daily of the following:

- You are a soul first and a personality second.

- You are worthy. You are not on this Earth by accident. You have a reason to be here. There's a difference between accepting that in your mind and accepting in your heart.

- It's not an "it" that you're looking for—it's your life that you're living.

- You are here to create an authentically empowered life. There is no guarantee you will do it. It's up to you.

Discover Your Strengths

Hate your job?! Are you ready for career intervention??

Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths, much less the ability to build our lives around them. Instead, guided by our parents, teachers, managers, and psychology's fascination with pathology, we become experts in our “weaknesses” and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws while our “strengths” lie dormant and neglected!!

May be it’s time to take control of your career, and live a life full of personal success. Enjoy!

Seeing The Possipilities

Most of us think we aren't adventurous, and the more we're convinced of this, the less hope we have of loosening up and getting better.

Learn to develop a true sense of adventure with this mini-guide to the how, why, when and wow of opening up your life.

Talk Yourself Up:
Jim Loehr, PhD, cofounded a high-performance training center for athletes and executives in Orlando, Florida. During the day, his clients repeat to themselves mottos they've composed, like "I am self-reliant", "I am decisive", "I'm a good problem solver", to counteract the running self-critique the rest of us tend to deliver all day ("I am way too needy", "I can't make a decision to save my life", "Why can't I solve my problems?!").

Get Unstuck:
Maggie Craddock, a coach of employees of Goldman Sachs, says that people who are feeling as if life is closing in on them have one thing in common: They're having trouble separating what they think they should want (a promotion, a big fat raise, the return of casual Fridays) from what they really want (recognition, a sense of purpose or balance in their lives).

What are you really looking for? "People have to ask themselves, How is my sense of who I am being shaped by the people I'm around?" says Craddock. "Is that keeping me in my rut or helping me out of it?"

Take a Risk:
There's programs specifically designed to help people brave that next step.and there’s schools that insert people into some hairy situations and help them prove to themselves how much they can accomplish

Create your own at-home version by taking small risks, then graduating to larger ones.

From the July 2002 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

لا تَسلْ

لا تَسلْ عن سلامتِهْ رُوحُه فوق رَاحتِهْ
بدَّلَـتـْهُ همومـُهُ كفـناً من وسادِتهْ

هو بالباب واقفُ والـرًّدى منه خائفُ
فهدأي يا عواصفُ خجلاً من جراءتِهْ

صامتٌ لوْ تكلَّما لَـفَظَ النَّارَ و الـدِّمَا
قُلْ لمن عاب صمتَهُ خُـلِقَ الحزمُ أبكما

لا تلوموه قد رأى منْهجَ الحـقِّ مُظلما
وبلاداً أحبَّـها ركـنُها قـد تـهدًّما

Who Will Buy??

Who will buy this wonderful morning?
Such a sky you never did see!
Who will tie it up with a ribbon
And put it in a box for me?
So I could see it at my leisure
Whenever things go wrong
And I would keep it as a treasure
To last my whole life long.

Who will buy this wonderful feeling?
I'm so high ... I swear I could fly.
Me, oh my!
I don't want to lose it

So what am I to do?
To keep the sky so blue?
There must be someone who will buy?
Who will buy?

There'll never be a day so sunny,
It could not happen twice!
Where is the man with all the money?
It's cheap at half the price!

Who will buy?
Who will buy?
Must be someone
Who will ... buy?

Love Of Allah (Subhanu Wa Taalaa)

Ibn Al-Qaiyim mentioned ten causes that result in Allah's love for His slave and the slave's love for his Lord. These ten are:

First, reciting the Qur'an while pondering over its meanings and what is meant by it.

Second, getting closer to Allah by performing voluntary deeds after completing obligatory deeds. This is as is stated in a Hadith Qudsi: "My slave continues getting closer to Me by performing voluntary deeds until I love him." [al-Bukhari]

Third, continual remembrance of Allah under all circumstances, with one's tongue, heart and actions. The extent of one's love of Allah is determined by this.

Fourth, giving precedence to what He loves over what you love when you are overtaken by your desires.

Fifth, the heart being avid of Allah's Names, and Attributes and the heart roaming in that garden of knowledge.

Sixth, observing Allah's kindness, goodness and bounties, both hidden and open.

Seventh, and this is the most wonderful, the heart being soft, subdued and meek before Allah.

Eighth, being alone with Allah during the time when the Lord descends during the last portion of the night while reading His Book and ending that by asking for forgiveness and repenting.

Ninth, sitting with the beloved and sincere, benefiting from the most fruitful of their speech. And not to speak unless speaking is more beneficial and you know that it will improve your state and be beneficial to others.

Tenth, remaining away from every cause that comes between the heart and Allah.

These ten causes take the lovers to the station of true love and bring them to their Beloved.

By: Ibn AlQayimm Al Jawziyah
From: Midaarij Assalikeen

Steps For Building Positive Attitude

Change focus, look for the positive. Most people find what they are looking for. If they are looking for friendship, happiness and the positive, that is what they get. If they are looking for fights or indifference, then that is what they get.

Step 2:
Make a habit of doing it now. Life is not a dress rehearsal. I don't care what philosophy you believe in, we have got only one shot at this game called life. The stakes are too high. The stakes are the future generations.

Step 3:
Develop an attitude of gratitude. Count your blessings, not your troubles. Take time to smell the roses.

Step 4:
Get into a continuous education program. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.

Step 5:
Build a positive self-esteem. If you want to build positive self-esteem quickly, one of the fastest ways is to do something for others who cannot repay you in cash or kind.

Step 6:
Stay away from negative influences. A person’s character is not only judged by the company he keeps, but also by the company he avoids.

Step 7:
Learn to like the things that need to be done. Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Step 8:
Start your day with a positive. If you are going to change your life, you need to start immediately and do it flamboyantly.

The Love Of Friends

Because of all the ways you've touched my life, because of all we've shared, your friendship means so much to me. When we first met, it was easy to see that we had many things in common. It was as if we had known each other forever and now it seems as if we've always been the good friends we are today.

I treasure our special relationship we have. You make so many times even better simply by being you. You make me happy simply by being my friend. And if I'm ever feeling a little down or upset about something, I know I can turn to you. If I'm facing a problem, I know you'll be there to face it with me. You'll help if you can because you care.

I care a lot about you too and about our friendship. That's why I try to be sensitive to your needs and feelings as you are to mine. That's why I try to be the kind of friend you've been to me.

I gain something meaningful each time we're together. It might be a brand new viewpoint on an old situation or the way you help me see the funny side of things I used to take so seriously or a different image of myself because you always see the best in me.

For all these reasons and more, I'm glad that our friendship keeps growing even more beautiful with time. I feel that we've both grown, too because we support each other, because we believe in each other because we're friends.

I'm richer for knowing you. And I feel certain that in the future I'll continue to discover even more reasons why you're such a special person and why your friendship means so very much to me.

This Post is made with Love...

Dedicated To All my Dear Friends...

Love and Hugs to you my Friends

Tell Me Why?!!!

Well, I claim that I’ve heard a good number of inspiring songs with sincere words and meanings for great artists, Don’t I ?! But nothing is brilliant as this kid, masha2 Allah bgad !!!

In my dreams, children sing
A song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue, the fields are green
And laughter is the language of the world

Then I wake and all I see
Is a world full of people in need

Tell me why
Does it have to be like this
Tell me why
Is there something I have missed
Tell me why
Cause I don't understand
When so many need somebody
We don't give a helping hand
Tell me why

Every day, I ask myself
What will I have to do to be a man
Do I have, to stand and fight
To prove to everybody who I am
Is that what my life is for?
To waste in a world full of war

Tell me why
Why why does the tigers run?!
Tell me why
Why why do we shoot the gun?!
Tell me why
Why why, do we never learn?!
Can someone tell us why we let the forests burn!!

Why why do we say we can?! Tell me why
Why why is it still the same?! Tell me why
Why why do we talk and run?! Tell me why
Can someone tell us why we let the ocean die!!

Why why do we always say?! Tell me why
Why why do we pass the blame?! Tell me why
Why why does it never rain?!
Can someone tell us why we cannot just be friends!!

Why Why?!!!

آن أن تنصرفوا

أيها المارّون .. بين الكلمات العابرة
اجمعوا أسماءكم و انصرفوا
و خذوا ما شئتم من صور
كي تعرفوا أنّكم لن تعرفوا
كيف يبني حَجَرٌ من أرضنا سقف السما

أيها المارّون .. بين الكلمات العابرة
منكم السيف .. و منا دمنا
منكم النار .. و منا لحمنا

و علينا نحن أن نحرس أرض الشهداء
و علينا نحن أن نحيا
كما نحن نشاء
آن أن تنصرفوا

من قصيدة عابرون في كلام عابر
شعر: محمود درويش
ألحان: طاهر مامللي
غناء: أصالة نصري

Life Is Beautiful

Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day

When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement,
”My Purpose is to …… today” !!

Live with 3 E’s: Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.

And the 3 F’s: Faith, Family, Friends.

Spend more time with People over the age of 70 and under the age of Six

Dream more while you are awake

Try to make at least three people smile each day

Realize that life is School and you are here to learn, and pass your tests.

Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good

Life is so short to waste time hating anyone

Love For Allah's Sake Only

If Allah loves someone He calls angel Jibreel and says: “I love so-and-so, so you love him. Jibreel loves him, and calls the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him, then his love will be made upon earth, and he becomes loved.

People do things for the sake of seeking out love from other humans. All the love you need is found in obeying Allah. Do actions sincerely to win Allah's love, and love will be yours!

O Allah, make my love for You the most beloved thing to me, and my fear for You the most fearful thing to me, and remove from me all worldly needs and wants by instilling a passion for meeting You, and when You have given the people of the world the pleasures of their world, make the coolness of my eyes (pleasure) in worshipping You.
