Piece of your mind.


IMG_20150222_180533

Splash of colours for sunset today had me thinking.

It is that time where you must give them a piece of your mind. Just because you were quiet does not mean you were blind. They kept taking advantage because you have always been so kind. But you must sit with yourself and look at how Self Respect is defined. How you have always been thrown of by them, to yourself you must remind. It is finally time to respect your morals and values and let all those words out that you have combined. In yourself that inner strength, that lost soul you must find. And finally give them a piece of your mind.

Don’t remind an arrogant how to them you have always been so kind. All that you have done, to a selfish person don’t remind.  Every time you were there for them, don’t look at the past that you have left behind. Just do this to get your self respect back and hit them with reality that all this time you were not blind. You deserve so much better than what has been left behind.

But in order to move on to the next chapter, you must close this one by giving them a piece of your mind.

The day you walk alone.


Turn your face to the sun and shadows fall behind you.

It’s been a while since I wrote. I guess you can say I was in the middle of the sea and got lost with my boat. There are times in our lives where we ask ourselves towards which way do we float? There is Someone there Who is pulling us towards this one way as if by a remote. Truth be told it is a long way. We walk and run, at times we think of it all as amusement and play (Surah Al-Hadid). Then we fall down while playing  shedding those tears and remember to once again pray. Who is guiding our way? Who is not letting us get lost and protecting us from being of those who from their path go astray?

One night in November you walk home alone. It is dark, it is quite and only through street lights the path is shown. The struggle you feel this night you never felt before. You cry and say out loud Oh God please let me sit right here on this road. Is it possible to not have the strength to walk not even to your house door? With a broken heart and no strength You keep going on and the pain you ignore.

You want to fall down or sit but something keeps pushing you from the back. Something keeps telling you that if you fall down on the road, you will loose this so you cannot slack. From all around you feel as if you are being attacked. Then all of a sudden as if you see light passing through a crack. It is a light from your home so you run towards it as fast as you can. And finally you reach home and you let it all out. You run to your room and let those tears finally fall down to the ground. There is no more pain or struggle, but rather tears of happiness and in your thoughts you drown…

There is finally an understanding of the concept that this is truly how your life goes. No matter what street you walk through at the end you must come home.  Since you know where your house is and to you the path is shown. Now you do a bit of exploring, get lost in few streets but as long as you get back to the street that is your own. We get lost many times in our lives but what matters is how many times we bring ourselves back towards the path that is known. No matter what we do in our lives we must return back to the One who owns the Throne ( Surah Al-Baqarah). Now it is up to us if we want to wander the streets being lost or do we want to return back home?

As long as we want to return to our home God won’t let us fall. At times we will walk and run and in hard times He will even help us crawl. As long as we keep the intention of returning back home He will even help us break walls. As long as we keep doing good on our way He won’t give up and will continue to call. This is your walk alone so at all times you must stand tall. People will walk with you for a while but then turn into the streets where their houses are. But at the end we all must get to our homes it is where we belong. It is all a matter of telling ourselves that you can do it because you are strong.

Cold!


Sunset out my window two days ago.

Sunset out my window two days ago. It’s cold but it is also gold

They often ask you why so cold? Why do you always say what you feel why are you so blunt and bold? Why do you not pause and think, why don’t you put your words on hold? They don’t like hearing the truth but it is also true that truth is always the gold. So before you say something why should you put your words in a mold? Why should you stop right before saying what you feel and then let your tongue fold? We have all changed and been sold. Because this world is so cold.

They don’t know your struggles, they don’t know how you grew old. Stating the truth is sometimes considered uncontrolled. You can’t be too honest all the time, recently I was told. The irony is that we all lie yet we are all searching for gold. You must do things like everyone else does, if you do it differently you are considered bold. When you are straight up and direct about something, you are considered cold.

Why must you always live the way as by others you are told? Why can’t you be the gold in this world that is cold? Why can’t you walk your way by being just a little bit of cold? Why must you always by others be controlled? Why is this world trying to shape us in to a mold? Why are you so cold? Why is this world so cold?

Faded memories


my heart melts when the sun goes down | past weekend sunset

My heart melts when the sun goes down | past weekend sunset out my window

Once in a while you remember something that happened few years ago. It’s amazing how much can change in just a year and how much you grow. The people that are sometimes a huge part of your life fade away and sometimes you wonder where did they go? But once in a while you shake those thoughts off and just go on with your life routine and everyday flow. The moments that once made your heart melt seem so long ago. The things and people that were a huge part of your life once and then you decided to let go. The memories you remembered so well once, now don’t seem to matter as much as they did a year ago. The things that once made you smile the brightest, now don’t bring on your face that glow.

So where did those memories go? How come on your face they don’t bring the same glow? When you remember them now how come you shake those thoughts off and go on with your everyday work flow? Why did you decide to let go? How come they don’t matter as much as they did a year ago? The moments that made your heart melt why do they seem like so long ago? Where did those things and people go?

It’s because God decided to unveil it for you and He decided to show. What was once covered He decided to uncover it just for you to know. It happened not to hurt you but for you to grow. You learned and got stronger and moved on with your life routine and everyday flow. And as you did that, on you countless blessings He continued to bestow. You still smile but for different reasons now and your face still glows. Because you continued to walk instead of cry over one thing that is why those memories seem faded and so long ago. Almost as if they didn’t happen at all and you remember them as a tv show. So standing ovation to you for all that you decided to let go. It is amazing how much can change in just a year and how much you grow.

The credit goes to you?

out my window.

We take pictures of the creation to show to the creation, to get credit from the creation for something we didn’t create.
Forgetting the Creator who created that creation because for everything the credit we ourselves want to take. 

Our hearts made of metal.


These fake hearts are more valuable; sad truth

These metal hearts are more valuable; sad truth

Its past midnight and I sit here and think. How heartless can we really be, I let this feeling inside me sink. You feel the pain of other when they are being unjustly treated because you find a link. But you do wrong to others so many times without even having a second thought or even letting your eyes blink. It is okay if you do it but wrong when others do the same. Only you have feelings while others don’t, such a shame. I can do whatever I want but when others do me wrong I can point fingers and blame. And we find happiness in watching people being treated badly because ‘oh they once did us wrong’… truly that is the world’s game.

But what is the matter with you why do you not help each other (Surah As-Saffat)? Why do you get happy when your mom is happy with you but gets mad at your brother?  Why do you not have the patience to slow your pace when walking behind someone who can’t walk fast?  How do you have the heart to stand there and watch a lion dragging a man away but rather making a video so it can last? When someone asks for your help why all of a sudden you are full of pride because they don’t know but you know it all? Why can’t you help one another it is not like by doing that you get small?

You hold a real live heart beating inside you. Is it as beautiful as you look from outside if someone was to look through? You can spend the whole day wasting time and money but you always give second thoughts if someone asks you for help or a dollar and two. You don’t know how to react or say two words of encouragement to someone who pours their heart to you. And then you sit here with a hard heart having no feelings towards anyone but you. It is not making you stronger but rather weak, it is sad how this world makes us believe the opposite, sad but true.

A heart dies when a human dies that is the truth. But your heart dies before you die if your world only revolves around you. My phone, my car, my clothes and my shoes. Of those suffering and dying please don’t describe to me that view. Because we are so busy living this fake life that we ourselves drew. The reality only hits us when the same experience we ourselves go through. How did we become so heartless? I am talking about me and you. Why do we not help one another through? It doesn’t matter if it is lending a pencil or giving in charity or even standing up for something that is true? It is all help at the end of the day and someone will appreciate it through. Wake you heart up and burst the bubble of this materialistic world that you created around you.

Step out to help the ones in need because Remember when you called on your God for help and He answered you (Surah Al-Anfal)?

The good in the morning, Sunshine.


Today's inspiration be my pillowcases and a beautiful morning outside.

Today’s inspiration be my pillowcases and a beautiful morning outside

I always loved my sleep and the idea of waking up late. This society want us being professional so why make all these university classes timings at night so late? Making us stay up all night and in the mornings we can’t wake. Then University ended and I started working, great! Where I have to be at work no later than eight. Sun is rising and I have to stand at the bus stop to wait. I am not complaining but at least let me eat and finish off what is on my plate. It took a while to get into that routine and I started to think straight. The beauty in the morning is so magical such a blessing let me just state.

I am in love with early mornings now that feeling so blessed. Where you see so many things happening only at that time who could have guessed. The golden morning, the birds chirping, the morning smiles from strangers, Oh I am definitely impressed! Before I was a sunset fan but now to witness the sunrises I am so obsessed!  These morning are what makes you keep going and gives you so much hope. There are there to teach you that after night the sun rises don’t let go of that rope. We all have our own problems and there are some with we can’t cope. Yet this morning comes everyday to teach us how to walk without slipping on that slope.

The sun rises and at that time the colours of this world are the most bright. If you don’t believe me go out early morning and on everything see that shining light. Everything will make you smile that comes in your sight. There is a lot more of the good in the morning sunshine. While you walk out there reflect on the One who created all this design. Who created the birds, the trees and made the beautiful sun shine. Get your thoughts together there is so much you need to achieve and your ideas you need to combine. And if someone asks you how you are feeling, give them your biggest smile, don’t just say fine! Go brighten up someone’s day with that beautiful smiles of yours that shines.

Its been a year


The sunset explosion today. I am a fan of beautiful sunsets and I am dying to meet the artist. SubhanAllah

The sunset explosion today. I am a fan of beautiful sunsets and I am dying to meet the artist. SubhanAllah. An explosion of beauty it was.

Its been a year since you walked your way. Its been a year since the struggles never left your way. Its been a year since you are keeping it silent when you have so many words you want to say. Its been a continuous struggle each and every day. Its been a year since you have been giving the biggest smiles to everyone you meet along your away. You are tired you are falling you are struggling but you have continued to pray.  So be patient because  the reward of those who do good (Surah Hud) will not be lost away. All those sacrifices you made will count one day. It will all get better sooner or later .. but maybe not today. You want it all back sometimes what you lost along the way. But just know that nothing is here forever to stay. The night comes but after that it is a new day. Where you already walked away from there is no going back to that place. But that past will stand in front of you again in the future some day. Make yourself strong so you can stand straight on that day. Prepare your words because you will have so much to say. Because remember an year ago it wasn’t you but they who walked away.

Buy me the sun!


sunrise today and my walk to the bus stop

sunrise today and my walk to the bus stop

You have the money to buy it all but can you buy me the sun? You won’t get this in your hands no matter how close to it you run. Control what you spend on those enjoyments that you call fun. There are some who are working so hard just to be rich they call it a chase I guess they like to run. We need money in order to live but does that mean we need to live for the sake of money … just answer that one.

They say money changes you as soon as you get it in your hands. It is when you show to the world that finally I can buy this and that. It is when you buy all these worldly things and you carry it around just so your wallet can look big and fat. What is the purpose of that? Just tell me about the happiness you feel while you are doing that? Those people that change because of the money in the hands. I am talking about the ones that think lowly of others and think they are now something grand. The ones who are walking around with those materialistic things just wanting for someone to praise and give it a second glance.

Here is the news it is not now that they changed in to that but rather they were always the same. Just because they didn’t have money in their hands they didn’t know how to display. It is true money can either ruin you or your life it can make. There are those people too that turn more humble and soft and want to spend it all in a good cause for God’s sake.

Now Think over which one will you be if you were to find a million dollars one day by the lake? Will you be the humble or the proud one today? Control your thoughts it turn into actions just so you can realize the reality and stay awake. You will never be able to feel happiness from that worldly run. Because it is the inner satisfaction only that can buy you the sun.

When your heart smiles


when your heart smiles

few days back drive with my beautiful parents along this beautiful sunset

Notice when you are grateful you seem to have more. It is when all around you ..you see opened doors. If you are grateful God certainly increases for you more (Surah Ibraheem). Being Grateful is when you are satisfied with anything that comes towards you. It is when your heart wants to smile all the way through. What annoys us most are those pictures in our head that how everything is supposed to be. And then when things don’t go the way we plan we want to run away and flee. Few days back when we were just out for a drive. I stare out the window at the beautiful sunset as time passes by.  I took a deep breathe and it felt like I have walked few miles. I look out the window and then at my parents I felt a feeling that perhaps I haven’t felt for a while. It was the feeling when my heart wanted to smile. Your heart will smile only when you are thankful and find the time to do things that make you feel alive. Life is a continuous struggle but in the end what will matter is how hard you strive. So don’t feel bad when you fail or make mistakes just continue on with your drive. Because it is the lessons you will learn from your mistakes that later on will make your heart smile.
