Muslims have become defensive, rightfully bringing up terrorism related tragedies of their own lands that were never brought up with such severity
Non-Muslims take an offensive stance against Muslims, who seem to be the cause for terrorism related tragedies on their lands.
In all this, we have all forgotten to mourn over the losses in Paris.
We can forget all our arguments and debates and empathise for once, and stay united against evildoers who come in every race, colour and religion.
The stories regarding the issue don't add up, we all know that. Allegations, claims, blame games and the media gone wild.
But are we really going to let the terrorists win by fighting with each other?
Are we really going to feed the hatred?
And where have I been all this time?
You don't want to know.
Cheers and salaams!
Oh yes! The background picture is the courtesy of the following artist:
Most modern islamic countries only cover the hair from what I have seen. Is this just cultural or supression of women, or actual faith?
I would put forward this idea: If women were permitted in all countries to have equal education, and opportunity, then we can achieve the same as a man. Is this not true? We have doctors scientists mechanics, and engineers equal to the talents of male counters.
I also would but foward in a most friendly of way. God created us, and gifted us with intelligence. With this gift is the ability to change what does not work into what works when it matters.
In the first comment is a man who talks about culteral. With my culture it is bad taste to cover ones face, except in cold weather. Other cultures are different, which is why I challange the reference to religion as to just culture.
But does this mean I don't have those feelings?
Does patience mean that we disregard our natural feelings of dismay, hurt and gloominess when presented with a grim situation? Does being patient mean that some of us are super-humans who don't suffer from emotional conflict?
Is patience just another way of pretence? While keeping a cool and collected facade, are we just pretending, while suppressing our feelings that might be killing us internally, and affecting our mental and physical health? Does the suppression of feelings help in way except in retaining a good public image?
You might see someone going through a tragic phase and handling it without much fuss or drama, and admire their patience. Would we stop and think, "Is it patience or is it just acceptance of one's choicelessness? Could "impatience" actually mean that one still has hope, is still striving to make a difference and meaning to be heard through self expression? Does patience really mean we've given up and accept whatever fate's hand serves to us?
We're told that if we're patient, we'll get what we want in the end, after the long, torturous wait. What if, when the wait is over, we don't even need what we once wished for? What if we don't want it any more? A girl could want a doll-house and after a three decade wait, does it even make sense to see her wish come true when she's beyond her years of playing with dolls?
Anyway, the above views are not my own, but a collective view of the musings of realists, and it's pretty justified to question life that way. So what's my view? Patience, according to me, is an attitude. We're not giving up when we're calm about a situation. Yes, we're accepting it; measuring the loss and instead of fretting over what happened, we think about our next move we must make to either move on with life or reach our goals. Yes, it's hard and sometimes it's too late to get something but it's never too late to discover other things we might want more than our initial desire led us to believe.
In fact, the new dream could have risen from the ashes of the burned out dream. The spark isn't snuffed out. The girl who wanted a certain kind of doll-house could very well aim for building her real dream house. Rather than sticking to the broken remnants of our crashed dreams, we stick them together with glitter and sunshine and paint them with unicorns and whatever it is we find on our way.
We're patient, because we never gave up hope. We have hope that not everything will fall apart. We have hope of finding what we want. We're patient because we're strong enough to not get consumed by ill fortune and its consequences and we find better ways to build up again. We're patient not because we don't have a choice. We're patient because we have a choice to face life boldly. We're patient because we need something to tune out our emotions and to live life with our chins up, unfazed by the events (or fazed but at least dealing with it properly by taking the right actions!)
So, the question of the day-
How patient do you think you are? How do you react to pressing situations?
Cheers and salaams!
Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
But if I had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate to say that
Ice is also great...

FAKE: Aalia is NOT on FAKEbook ummm, Facebook!
Once again, somebody tries to impersonate , a veteran member of HSF Senior Staff and dear friend to our members and myself, on facebook. If you have facebook, do us and everyone of her fans and friends the favour, go to that profile (search by name) and report it for impersonation. The pictures - see screenshot - have been STOLEN from the only true account there is, the one on G+
You never heard that sentence before from me, but please RESHARE among those who know her.
Thanks everybody for your help!
People pleasers often mistake themselves for "nice people". Their worst fear is making someone unhappy and they'll do anything to avoid it. The irony is, they aren't really being "nice" and it doesn't help the world in the way they think it does. They are just warding off their own fears of displeasing others.
Have you ever lied to make someone happy?
Yes I have and I am still nice!!! Or not. Makes me question my goodness because the consequences and implications to lie like that are dire.
The Edhi Foundation is a non-profit unique social welfare program in Pakistan founded by Abdul Sattar Edhi in 1951 as one man operating from a single room in Karachi. This amazing foundation now has over 300 centres across the country including centres all over the world providing 24 hour emergency assistance across Pakistan and also abroad. The foundation also gave relief to the victims of hurricane Katrina. Some of the many services provided include shelter for the destitute, free hospitals, education, healthcare and orphanages. The value of these necessary services cannot be over-estimated in a nation where 60.3% of the population live on under £2 per day and 40 million people live in poverty. The noble and unassuming man is a living saint who has devoted his life to address both the causes and results of such inequity, is now failing in health. He is worthy of recognition of his remarkable achievements during his life-time and will leave a rare.
