Heart Warmers



Remember when you and your friend were always close and you could tell each other anything? You were the closest to each other and nobody else came between you two?After some time, you noticed that this friend was acting abit strange, and they wasn’t giving you the attention you usually had.. wasup with him/her? you asked yourself. This friend gradually started hanging out with you less and you never spoke to each other that much. They started acting abit more ‘kool’ and they felt that you was oldskool..What if it’s a guy, or a gyal? you thought to yourself.. i’ve never seen them act this strange before.

Turns out, what you thought was right. They wanted to join the scene too and you was left behind, you’re still a kid in their eyes but they’ve grown up. I’m hangin with the bad boyz now, or the ‘thuggetez.’ (more…)

– Alone –

It’s sometimes scary, when everyones’ turned their back. They’re not with me no more.. i wish we were together again. i wish things were back to normal.

Do you remember anyone close you’ve lost? Imagine that day again… how did it feel? If you’ve felt that pain in your throat, and your head hurt at that moment, then that person must have been really special to you.

People respond differently when they lose others. Some people try to move on and make new friends, others try to stay alone and reflect on what’s gone.

The ones that move on, they usually go through the reflection stage too.. they just might be a bit more used to it. While the one who remains in that state, they usually don’t want to move on. They want to stay comfortable, so they hold on to them memories, hoping that it just comes back. (more…)

Parent, father


“Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents, and (all) the believers on the Day when the reckoning will be established.”
Surah (Chapter) Ibrahim (Abraham) Qur-an 14:41  


When I was a little brat, I always asked my parents for help regarding everything. They helped me patiently, never asking for anything in return. Time flew by and I started relying on myself. Especially when it came to school. I had teachers to ask, friends to call for help… I felt grown up when I didn’t need to ask my parents. Like it would be a great shame to go to your Dad and say, “I don’t get this Math thingy Daddy…”

Turning 13, I was officially a teenager. Now I seriously couldn’t ask my parents for help! Except for giving me money of course. That’s what they are there for, right?


What’s your ideal husband/wife?”, “Would you let your husband marry again?” “”What would you do if your husband has a bad temper?”…and the list just goes on and on. We can sit around all day thinking up the countless hypothetical situations which may potentially affect us one day, but we ignore the key things that will definitely affect us one day. We daydream about marriage as if its some sort endless bliss, but when we get married, we think its a nightmare only because we weren’t realistic in our approach towards it to begin with. We enter the marriage by stressing ourselves out with expenses that can be easily done without, such as what type of tablecloth, chair covers, napkins, etc have to be used at the wedding just so we can live the fairy tale.

It is narrated by Sayyidina Anas ibn Malik (Radiallahu Anhum) that Sayyidina Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has said,
“When a man marries he has fulfilled half of the religion; so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half.”

[Al-Tirmidhi # 3096, Bayhaqi transmitted it in Shu’ab al-Iman]

–Waiit! There is more. Continue on please.

P.Diddy, Tupac, Destiny’s Child…

This is the lists of names I usually get when I ask other brothers and sisters who there role models are. There was this one little brother who gave me the response that 50 cent was his role model. I wasn’t really surprised but I still asked him why. “He got shot nine times!” he replied back to me with a look of admiral on his face.

“What is he? A cat with nine lives?” I thought to myself trying not to roll my eyes in sarcasm. Why is it SUCH a big deal that the dude got shot nine times? Ok maybe its a bit unusual but come on!

I looked back and the brother and told him “What about Rasuallah (saw) and his companions? They fought in numerous battles and were probably seriously injured by swords and spears way more than nine times!”

“Hmmm…I never thought of that” he replied, hanging his head in either mere disappointment in himself or embarrassment. (more…)
