Maybe this post of mine could be harsh for you all!! but in life we all face problems whether we are rich poor or middle class…it’s just that we think that Oh GOD! he is a rich fellow he must not have faced so much of problems as much as i have faced…but not everyone is expressive…we don’t come to know about someone else’s problem unless and until they don’t express it to us….ACCEPTANCE doesn’t comes easily…I don’t get it when parents can’t resolve their matters amongst themselves then why the hell do they start blaming their children for it…frustrated, disgusted, furious for every God damn reason they start blaming their kids for it..as if their kids are their punching bags….Hold On! MARRIAGE & FAMILY PLANNING are two things which scares me like hell…i do not come from a broken family but surely i am not happy either with the thinking level which everyone is having!!! Don’t wanna get married then don’t get married…don’t wanna have children then don’t nobody is forcing you to have children or get married…unless and until you are not ready you should not go for it..as simple as that..thank you!
JIHAD…THE true concept OF WHICH in today’s world has been misquoted…most of them think that if somebody is not following Islam..we should kill that person and for them that will be a jihad…
- JIHAD IS SPIRITUAL STRUGGLE WITHIN ONESELF AGAINST SIN
- A STRUGGLE OR FIGHT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM
- Jihad is NOT blowing up one’s self (Suicide is a sin in Islam).
- Jihad is NOT Holy War.
- Jihad is NOT killing innocent people.
- Jihad is NOT flying a plane into a building packed with civilians.
- Jihad is NOT fighting out of anger and hatred.
- Jihad is NOT killing others just because they don’t agree with you.
- Jihad is NOT killing others just because they are not Muslims.
Jihad has many forms:
- Jihad of the heart/soul (jihad bin nafs/qalb)
- Jihad by the tongue (jihad bil lisan)
- Jihad by the pen/knowledge (jihad bil qalam/ilm)
- Jihad by the hand (jihad bil yad)
- Jihad by the sword (jihad bis saif)
Who is a Holy Warrior?
According to the Quran, a martyr who died in the way of Jihad is
promised Paradise. But what are the criteria of martyr, or in other words,
what are the criteria of a Holy Warrior undertaking the True Jihad?
The most famous of all Hadith is the one regarding everything we do are
judged by our intentions; so as it is mentioned in the previous chapter.
So who is an example of a Holy Warrior?
Ali bin Abu Talib, cousin of Prophet Mohammed (s.a.w) and the fourth
Caliph of the Islamic Ummah is a good example.
During one of the battles, Ali was about to give a deathblow to an enemy
soldier. Just then, that enemy soldier spat at Ali. Ali then suddenly
stopped, threw down his sword and refused to kill that enemy soldier.
After the battle, Ali’s soldiers asked Ali why he suddenly stopped
and refused to kill that enemy soldier on the battlefield.
Ali explained that he got angry when that enemy soldier spat at him. So
if he had killed that enemy soldier right then, he would be killing out of
his own anger and no longer fighting for Justice. In the sight of Allah, he
would then be no different from a murderer.
Brothers and Sisters that is how we should see a Holy Warrior!
As Food nourishes our body…same way…Food for the soul.. refreshes us…improves our well being…something which only a particular thing can satisfy the soul…only a particular thing can give peace to the soul…For a TRAVELLER..TRAVELLING can be his FOOD FOR THE SOUL…as he finds his happiness..his satisfaction and his peace in exploring new things..finding interesting facts about the new culture of people living in different countries and people of different religion…SIMILARLY..for a WRITER…his/her food for the soul…will be writing…expressing his/her thoughts…into words..unless and until he/she doesn’t finds a pen or a paper to express his feelings he/she cannot derive that level of satisfaction from any other thing in life…
My idea for escaping from messy things around myself…is WRITING…what about your’s???Reading novels is still one of my favourite thing to do when I am free..it just takes to you to another world of imagination where you are the invisible person who can see everyone (i.e.every character of the story) but none of them can see you…i count that as a really interesting part of reading…but again the worst part of it is that you have to come back to the real world where you are no super-girl or a boy..and you have to face every mellow drama every difficulty by your own…
READING inspires me whereas WRITING gives me peace…there is so much in our life that can be put into the content to write…for every imaginary story…the content written is based on REALITY…THEREFORE..FOR ME WRITING IS THE FOOD FOR MY SOUL…WITHOUT WHICH I AM NOTHING :-)♥♥♥
THE Girl…who,once upon a time…used to be the most cheerful of all…has lost her cheerfulness somewhere..the Girl…who used to roam around happily…used to hang around with her friends..suddenly stopped everything…WHY?WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN SO BAD WITH HER???WHY DID SHE LOSE HERSELF…HER CHARM..HER CONFIDENCE HER BEAUTY…..did someone…forced her….???
LIFE for her is no more the SAME as it was once used to be…for her it was nothing that she could have wished for….one night in MUMBAI took everything away from her…her innocence,her sweetness…her charm everything…she could not believe her eyes…that the person who forced her was no one else but her UNCLE…whom she used to consider as her father…two nights of child abuse took away everything..her peace..her love…HER SOUL….BUT SHE WAS A UNIQUE GIRL…as i will quote her…
She completed her EDUCATION…forced herself to be happy in everyone’s happiness and to help other’s when they were in pain…not that she didn’t express it to her parents…but nobody believed her…not even her mother….
SHE is someone….who still knows how to spread love…happiness…she is still a person who is alot caring about everyone else’s need…but NOW IS NOT AT ALL EXPRESSIVE…SHE TRUSTS NOONE…SHE CANNOT EXPRESS HER FEELINGS TO ANYBODY..SCARED OF LOSING PEOPLE AROUND HER…ALOT MORE INSECURE…ESP AMONGST HER FAMILY MEMBERS….
PEOPLE!!! CHILD ABUSE is something one should get punished for (THE CONVICT)…nobody has got the right to touch any guy/girl without his/her consent…imagine…if same would have had happened to her uncle’s daughter then what…???it’s all about KARMA…do bad and you’ll receive it…do good and good will happen to you….CHANGE YOUR MINDSET….CONTROL YOUR TEMPTATION AND DESIRES….LIVE A RESPECTFUL LIFE…AND YOU’LL BE HAPPY…!
The more tranquil a man is the more successful he will be…for me…or rather..according to me…tranquility can be achieved only if a person is happy with whatever he has in his life…the ultimate satisfaction is achieved by him during his difficult times when he is grateful to God for every small thing is his blessed with..that’s when a person is in actual tranquility….
We have to find peace within ourselves..rather than giving the charge of being in peace to the other people…as soon as we start expecting..till the time that person fulfils all our expectations..we tend to find ourselves at peace without even realising that we are giving the charge of our happiness and our peace to the other person but when that person..breaks our trust..stops fulfilling our wishes…we tend to think that he is at fault completely..but actually he is not….
WE should expect only from ourselves…our happiness and our mental peace ONLY LIES WITHIN OURSELVES..IF WE FIND TRANQUILITY IN OTHERS….THEN WE CAN NEVER FIND IT WITHIN OURSELVES….
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT LIFE AHEAD….LOVE YOURSELF FIRST…!!!:-)
WHY?WHY?why does it always happens with US..the creatures of Lord God..why can’t it be just the other way round..sometimes…those who can form a proper co-ordination between their BRAIN and HEART..can lead a life without confusion..and can find their PEACE….
WE tend to overlook at things…or sometimes we notice things that are not even a percent important for us…Giving undue importance to the issues which are not even worth our TIME..gets us into trouble…As we grow old..we tend to come across certain people who can really change the way we think..esp when that person is negative…90% of us gets attracted to the negative thinkers…NEGATIVITY EATS US UP…IT BURNS US…it aloofs us from socialising…the more negative we think..the more we will be ignored…that’s the story…
BE LOVABLE…there is sooo much of love within everyone inside us….let the mind think positive things and let your heart execute that positivity inside you…so that whosoever you’ll meet in your life will get inspired from you…
Start being observant about the people around you…start seeing life from your perspective…and not from other’s perspective…NOBODY CAN BE YOU…NOBODY CAN RECREATE THE REAL YOU…Stop taking charge of people who has done wrong to you..they will always be answerable to you for that…i know it’s not that easy…but a small positive change can save millions of life and it can save your’s as well…START TELLING YOUR MIND TO THINK LESS…ULTIMATELY…HAPPINESS WILL BE ACHIEVED…START PRAISING LORD FOR THE SMALL SMALL THINGS THAT WE ARE ACTUALLY BLESSED WITH….NOTHING COMES EASY IN LIFE…NOTHING IS HANDY DANDY…ALL ONE NEED IS HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE…SAVE YOUR ENERGY…TELL YOUR MIND TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART…AND PLAY THE POLICY OF BEING SAFE!!!
The day was going fine for her…suddenly she him and said..”shall we meet”?…He
replied”ok…fine…coming to pick you up after 15minutes..don’t be late…”She was all ready…the excitement to meet your loved one is actually so…They both went for a long drive…girl still thinking whether he truly loves her or not…suddenly he said that his ex is still embedded there deep inside his heart…and she kept on thinking…she can’t have him ever…atleast not in this life…aftr saying so…he tried cheering her up.. Telling her convincingly that he loves her madly…but it didn’t seem to be true now for that dat girl…they went for lunch…where the boy continuously held her hand..making her believe that he loves her…but now…she was adamant dat it will not work…still she loves everything about him…even if he is rude…after having everything discussed they decided to end it amicably…after that neither he returned to her nor did she returned to him…but the girl is still praying to get him back…to get her love back! The last lunch..could have been a great start for their lives!!
that now he loves him

To begin with…this post of mine..doesn’t holds anything against any religion caste or sub caste…but i remember..when i wrote this post for the article of my school magazine..my teacher asked me to edit all the major stuff and then only this article will be published in the school magazine…as this will create a ruckus in school amongst everyone…Karbala and the day of Ashura (the day the massacre occurred) can teach us a lot about unity. This story is not about Good Islam versus Bad Islam. It’s not about Hussein versus Yazid. It’s not even about Right versus Wrong.
WHY ISLAM SPLIT INTO TWO SECTORS??
Earlier there were only Muslims in ISLAM…no sunni no shia…only MUSLIMS..who used to believe that there is only one God named ALLAH and that PROPHET MUHAMMAD(pbuh) is the messenger of ALLAH…To my knowledge the SPLIT IN ISLAM took place after the death of PROPHET MOHAMMAD(pbuh)..where the question of choosing the next successor arose…some of them wanted ABU BAKR to be the next successor..who was the father of Prophet’s wife Ayesha and was also his friend…while other’s wanted Hazrat ALI IBNE ABU TALIB a.s(s.a.w)..who was his daughter’s husband and his first cousin too..History reveals that Abu Bakr became the first CALIPH and Hazrat Ali Ibne Abu Talib a.s(s.a.w) became the fourth Caliph…THIS IS WHERE THE DIFFERENCE WAS CREATED.
CONCEPT OF IMAMAT AND CALIPHATE!
Shiites(shia’s) believe in the Imamat. This is where Imams are the true Caliphs and are divinely appointed. They are believed to be chosen from the descendants of Muhammad by God to be rulers and the living example for all Muslims to emulate in their daily lives (Imams are believed to have perfectly reflected the practices and behaviours expected by God). WHEREAS, Sunnis believe that the Caliph (the head of the Caliphate, which is the state covering the worldwide community of Muslims, or the Ummah) is a temporal, political office bound within Sharia law and the advice of Islamic lawyers and a kind of parliament, which can elect or impeach the Caliph.
BANI UMMAYAD AND BANI HASHIM!
Thus, Sunnis believe that Abu Bakr was the first Caliph and SHIAS believe that Hazrat Ali Ibne Abu Talib was the first Imam…Since then there is a clear distinction between both the sectors….Bani Ummayad and BANI HASHIM were people from the above mentioned sectors respectively…NOTE THAT:Religion can never disgrace a man…but a man can always disgrace his religion by his stupid acts..The Bani Umayyah had been sworn enemies of the Bani Hashim since the time when Hashim, the forefather of our Prophet (p.b.u.h), had succeeded in banishing his evil half-brother Umayyah from Makka.
After the death of Imam Ali (AS), Muawiya turned his attention to Imam Hasan (AS). Just as his father had done, Imam Hasan (AS) wrote to Muawiya telling him that the crimes he was committing against innocent Muslims were unacceptable. Imam Hasan (AS) asked the People of Kufa to assist him in battle against Muawiya.
Yazid son of Muawiya
In 60 A.H. this devil declared himself ruler of all Muslims. Yazid was a man of extremely evil habits. He was a drunkard, gambler, womaniser and murderer. He only ruled for 3 years. In the first year he killed Imam Husain (AS) and his companions in Karbala and made their women and children prisoners.
During the second year he ordered his soldiers to enter Madina and do what they liked. As a result, 1,000 people were killed, including 700 close Companions of the Prophet (p.b.u.h). In addition 1,000 women were assaulted and forced to surrender their dignity to Yazid’s men. In the third year, Yazid mounted an attack on the Ka’ba, aiming to destroy it with giant catapults.
Not content with committing crimes in Karbala, Makka and Madina, Yazid appointed Ubaidullah ibne Ziyad as governor of Kufa with specific orders to hunt out and kill the Shia of Imam Ali (AS). Ubaidullah carried out the orders of his master by imprisoning, exiling, hanging or amputating the limbs of the Shia. Yazid’s rule ended with his death in 64 A.H. Before his death, he appointed his son Muawiya as his heir. The Karbala massacre is notoriously known for being one of the darkest and saddest days in Islamic history. On the tenth day of the sacred Islamic month of Muharram, in the year 61 A.H., approximately 50 years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), his grandson Hussein was martyred along with all the members of his family, including women and children.
WHAT EXACTLY YAZID WANTED?
Yazid who became the new ruler after his father’s(Muawiya) death…during his rule..he lead led cruel things happened…INFIDELITY, MOLESTATION, ETC ETC…He wanted Imam Hussain to do Bayat (allegiance)..but since Imam Hussain knew about his cruel intentions he never wanted to have any allegiance with that person..and this led to the war as Yazid made it very clear that if Imam will not accept the offer then he will be killed by the forces of yazid …Imam Hussain A.S accepted to sacrifice his family his children himself rather than having allegiance with the cruel ruler….
The sacrifices range from grown men, to the 6-month old son of Hussein who did not know of good versus evil but only of thirst and hunger. When Hussein held him up and begged that they be allowed access to water, Yazid’s army shot three spears into his heart.
But, the saddest of sacrifices comes from Hussein’s brother, Abbas, who crossed the battle field to the Euphrates River to bring water back to the infants and children. There, he filled a water skin in hopes of quenching their thirst. The soldiers fired an arrow through his eye and cut off his arms, but that did not halt him. He carried the skin of water in his mouth, crawling towards the tents filled with children, until the army approached him and finally killed him.
Eventually, drenched in Abbas’s blood, the blood of his martyred teenage son, companions, and infant child, Hussein stood alone on the battlefield, with women, children, and the ill waiting in tents. He bid them farewell and shouted to an empty desert behind him “Is there anyone to help me?”, When silence was the only response, he marched to fight the army of Yazid, where he was beheaded (much like ISIS does today), stomped on, and his head attached to a pole. The army then tied up the women and children, and marched them from city to city behind the severed head of Hussein, all the way back to their commander, Yazid.
WHY DO WE MOURN IN MUHARRAM?
Once you truly understand the stories of Karbala, listening to each one in specific detail, you will understand why millions of Shia every year mourn during Muharram. It’s why they cry and wear black and why Christians and Sunnis alike join them in paying respects to Hussein and his brother Abbas at their shrines in Karbala, Iraq. Not because it’s merely a sad story, but because sacrifices like this didn’t just keep true Islam alive, but kept good alive throughout the Eastern world.
Your history books never taught you that. Your history books will never teach you of the powerful women, like Zainab, the sister of Hussein, who embodied true feminism and stood up to the tyrant Yazid in his castle, even as they were handcuffed and promised to be raped and sold.
The Lebanese writer Antoine Bara once wrote, “No battle in the modern and past history of mankind has earned more sympathy and admiration as well as provided more lessons than the martyrdom of Hussein in the battle of Karbala.”
Hussein and Karbala are not just a story for Shia Muslims, they are a story for humanity.
Ask yourself, if the Battle of Karbala can teach us so much about standing against the image of Islam that the world and media hold today, then why don’t we ever learn about it?
