Every night when I go to bed, A heavy burden sets upon my heart as I ask myself, “What did I do in my entire day?”
Now perhaps this question may end you up with million of answers of what you did in your entire day, but ponder over the question again. What did you really do in your entire day?
I am not talking about eating, working, studying, cooking etc. These are normal stuff. Everyone does it. These are the stuff within the box. But what have you done to go beyond your box?
Have you done anything productive that matters truly a lot?
Have you saved any life today?
Have you accomplished any goal?
Did you fulfill any dream?
Did you do anything that may, perhaps, call some self appreciation? Read more
I have been a JFL (Just For Laughs) addict ever since I was a child. I remember I used to watch them with my family and the giggles that would fill the room. Recently I was watching few JFL videos from youtube and I must confess sometimes I feel chained. I move from one video to another and keep saying just one more until I have spent 3 hours.
Anyway, this is not what the blog is about as you can read the title.
It so happened that I was watching one of the JFL videos and they were as usual pranking people. One pregnant lady would ask their victim to look after her 3 kids while she went to the Public Toilet and after sometime she comes back with a baby in her arms. Now among those people one was a girl in Scarf. Yes she was a Muslim.
Apparently she wasn’t a terrorist, had no guns and neither was she harassing, abusing, torturing the kids while the pregnant lady went to the toilet. She was smiling, talking to the kids and looking after them.
When I moved to see the comments, there were no laughs. There was a battle going on over Religion. Some people swearing, cursing or talking about Islam and others swearing and cursing back at them for having said so.
There was another JFL video where there were 2 Nuns who asked for charity and when their prank victim gave them coins, they would buy themselves a drink. Again the comments were full of some people swearing at the religion while the others swearing back at them.

Having been an optimist for most of my past, guiding people to the same and pulling them out from their dark hole, I was somehow being dragged into pessimism, into the dark hole.
Of course I am just a human, my wills are weak and my strengths flicker with the tides of bad time. When the strongest tide of bad time hit me, I was pulled out from my grounds of optimism like a young sapling from the soil is gushed away in the rain.
I have been trying hard enough to keep myself intact, I was slowly breaking out, falling weak and trembling. A little push, a small tear and the slightest of weakness would through me into the arms of the devil .
I will proudly say that the only reason I am intact is because I had faith in God. Had??? Yeah I had faith in God. Only it has grown stronger now.

We all undergo age, situations and times that make us realize where we truly stand as a Muslim.
Some of you, may be content and satisfied with where they are standing and where they are heading. But some of you, like me, may be guilty, discontent and feel lost when they find out where they are standing.
For those of you who feel guilty, discontent, confused and lost, At this time, you might start wondering and questioning what you have made of yourself and what have you done toy ourself. We panic and start thinking hither thither of what to do and where to hide. But there is no hiding from Allah, isnt it? He knows what we disclose and he knows what we hide in our heart.
We forget that when we were giving for our school exam, we asked Allah to help us, when we were going for job interview, we asked Allah to help us,when we wanted something, we again asked Allah for it…
So why not now??? Read more
