~ Still ~


Still I fail to medicate myself
Still I continue to devastate myself
By doing what I know to be a sin
Have I been given a guarantee that in the end
I will win?

Just because I'm still alive and have an easy living
Doesn't mean that I've been forgiven.

Yes I'm still alive, but how can I expect to survive
Life in the displeasure of Allah!?

I say I "love Allah", but does Allah love me?
Let's see, just how real is this so-called
"Spirituality" that you profess to possess
But when you're alone you digress and don't confess!

Thought that you could fool 'em with that beard
And that hijab
Not realizing that at your own heart you have
Taken the deepest stab.
Thought that you could fool them with that thaub
And veil over your face!
How dumb you must have looked in front of the One
Who's knowledge, hearing and sight penetrate every place!

Why do you feel so secure that Allah is going to forgive you everytime?
Do you really feel secure as you drive home from
The scene of your crime?

How do you know the wrath and punishment of Allah
Isn't waiting for you around the corner?
Don't you know that the Angel of Death strikes without A warner?!

How long do I think I have to make things right?
By Allah! If I knew the reality of my sins,
I couldn't sleep at night!
Afraid of closing my eyes from fear of dying in my sleep!
Only to wake up in a grave so dark, lonely and deep!

-Who's your Lord? my own desires...
-Who's your Prophet? my own desires...
-What's your religion? following my own desires...
-Well welcome to the Fire! -Welcome to the fire!!
What an awful place to retire!

~ Why We Shout, When In Anger ~

couple arguing Pictures, Images and Photos

Why we shout, when in anger............

A saint who was visiting a river to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled and asked.

'Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?'

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout.'

'But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.' asked the saint

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
Finally the saint explained, .

'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small...'

The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.'

He looked at his disciples and said.

'So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return. They may end up in divorce courts, for instance.'

The Roots of Violence:

Wealth without work,
Pleasure without conscience,
Knowledge without character,
Commerce without morality,
