Un-blinker Yourself

Peace be on you all!
Yeah, we know, and we're terribly sorry, and we won't even begin on how late we've been this time.
We have this one request from you - please show some response, ask some questions, etc. to help us assess how we're getting on here. It'll really be appreciated, InShaaAllah.
Now, with the post.

Consider this scenario: you're offered a promotion, a pay raise, and you're not bad with responsibility -- would you decline this proposal? Given that you are right-headed, that is.
No, most probably you'd be overly eager to accept it. Unless you're genuinely lacking.

Now, aren't we all terrific fools, that when God gave us final clues for answers, full debriefing, and unparalleled greatness after that, we're still clung on to the previous, primitive short-term goals?
Allah blessed us: with morals of justice, we run behind 'equality'. He gave us a clear path to world peace and we're blindly inching forwards on the street of provincial peace. He showed us Eternal Bliss but we're obsessed with a terminal period.

And after all, we're all pumped up and confident (over-?) about matters that lurk in the darkest patches of our ignorance.
Tsk-tsk, indeed "...mankind was created weak." (Al-Quran 4:28)

Every once in a while, we must retrospect, to purify and protect our precious intentions from the callers towards Evil.

May Allah Protect us and Purge us all. Aameen.

Peace be to all those who follow the Guidance.

Peace be upon you. Here you go.

You’re white water rafting, against the current. The water sprays on you, the whole of you, and you still have to plough through with your only paddle. And, of course, you’re alone.

But this isn’t the worst part. Rather, every bit adds up to stand towering over you as a challenge.

Yet the huge rocks that jut out of the raging tousles – some that you’re able to see before you just go crashing into them, and, some not – are the ones giving you a tough time. So, some you steer around, a few you go over, and the rest you hurtle into. Thus, whatever follows, follows.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, this rafting of yours isn’t just sport. What’s it, then? Any guesses?

It’s a simile of your life’s status quo.
The hurdles that you meet, and will encounter, are the rocks that you will see. And you choose – skirt around them, take them and move over and on, or go collide into them, totally unprepared, and capsize.

“Choose your battles.”

“For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.” 94:5.

“Allah will bring about, after hardship, ease.”65:7.

Peace be to all those who follow the Guidance.

Not Excused!

Peace be upon you. Again, we're late, sorry, et cetera. Here we go.

Surah Ash-Shams, Verse 8:
فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا
Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it;

The soul was given the knowledge, the criterion. Did we just hear our brains counter, "Ignorance is bliss"? Well, is it any ignorance if you've all the knowledge you need to not be excused?
If a machine was made perfect (if, that is, by humans) and programmed efficiently, and given 'artificial intelligence', and yet it erred while running, what's to blame? Not the fashioner, no, he was quite thorough in his work.
Actually, we're all caught. We can't say, 'We didn't know'/'We didn't understand it at all'/ etc. When the Message came to us, we felt our heart tug us towards it. The Right or the Left won. Or will, if Allah Wills.
All in all, the bottom line is - we can't skitter behind excuses that will never be applicable to us. We must embrace the Truth when it comes, for it will come, by the Will of Allah.

Eco-friendliness: Our duty.

Our poor Earth begs to see those twinkling stars,
For it could formerly even admire the beauty of planet Mars.

These factories smoking a thousand cigars a day,
The smoke clouding up with a hue of blackish grey.

Not to mention, of course, our folks who breathe
Out those toxins; never enough to seethe.

Tonnes of garbage dumped mercilessly at the great seas,
Even the lakes and oceans are not set free.

So many chemicals polluting the noble waters,
Choking fishes and many plants, even our health greatly falters.

Unhealthy, hybrid foods replace the better nutrition,
To feed the numerous masses, to produce weaker generations.

For the best in both lives, plant a seed today,
That’s also what the Lord and His Messenger (saw) say.

You may never realize—it’s a little forest of your own,
With household garbage and compost, the large plants you have grown.

Let’s unionize our efforts to success via the Way,

How Muhammad (saw) taught us, our world needs it today!


Peace be upon those who follow the Guidance.
