Freedom of Liberty

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

I miss my posts where I would re-read them and think 'that's not too shabby' now more than ever however I find my posts are becoming a diary-of-a-hijabi-wimpy-kid now now don't protest too much now will you!?

I'm sorry if my posts are repetitive I try my best to make them original perhaps I shall be doing more posts on the current history I am studying.

Right now I am doing American History and oh the irony! A country built on the foundations of "freedom" and "liberty" constantly contradicting themselves even before they even started out. Thomas Jefferson the man who set out the Declaration of Independence in 1776 had slaves himself!

The whole history behind America is one of genocide! The New land what new land?! You fools! They began out as 13 British Colonies including Virginia, Maryland, Rhode Island (and so on) until the US got into a civil war with Britain and declared Independence they then purchased Louisiana from Napoleon. They then began the wars to take more land (With Mexico) and the treaties with the Native Americans or should I say forcing them out?

Anyhow the America we know today is one which has always been built on corruption, pish posh freedom and democracy the so called founding fathers themselves couldn't do it right what makes you, Obama think you can? He welcomes us Ramadan when he still has the Guantanamo Bay open!

I hate you America! (The leadership not the people)

They made The Bill of Rights to declare citizens with individual rights but when it comes to the justice of muslims I guess they fall short just a bit too much huh? They talk of fair trials and juries but our muslim brothers can't even have trials before being charged, wheres the law in that? Where are you, American? We will find you, hiding in your shame, never  will you be able to destroy the muslim name, so long as we stand side by side, victory we shall attain!

Wasalaam

To my old self

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

To my old self,

I am not angry with you nor am I upset in fact I understand why you acted that way, dont worry it's okay, Im here to stop you going astray. Now I can show you the right way I can correct your mistakes.

There's no need to regret what you did infact we would never have learned from the past without this.

Torn apart it was obvious from the start it was going shaky but we found eachother walking backwards looking for answers and there's no worry anymore.

We can be stronger together, now we understand eachother better. Be strong and hold your head up no matter what anyone thinks!

Wasalaam

Another Talk

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

I find that over time we become desensitized. To almost everything if we are not extremely careful. Sometimes words become meaningless and actions lack passion often creating hypocrisy in our hearts.

Sometimes we pretend, to be okay to go through life with all our scars not letting anyone know how we are really feeling- but you should. Tell someone how you feel let it all out.

Otherwise you end up turning to stone, you do honestly. You become resentful with life and forget about everything important. But you can avoid it.

I remember a time when a sister spoke to me and MashAllah she had such taqwa and faith in the Almighty but at the time I didn't and when she spoke I understood her love but I felt a barrier there, one I felt I couldn't access because I didnt have that love so instead I pretended ,I said what I needed to- because if I didn't she would have thought there was something wrong with me.

But to be truthful I would say don't tell everyone how you really feel, tell those you feel comfortable. I know why I did what I did but I didn't know if it was right to discuss my feelings, or my lack of feelings for Islam but I'm telling you sisters it's not haram infact its probably better to! So you can get support from other sisters. Also I would like to say that if any of you sisters find you don't have anyone you feel comfortable talking to, I am always free to talk so feel free to email me. (Elastix86@gmail.com)

Also if my awesome friends agree I may get them to guest post because subhanAllah they have helped me alot! So look out for that! Soon!

TalkTherapy

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Today sisters, I wanted to talk about struggling in our faith. We all go through it and I can vouch I've been there in fact I can't say I'm strong in my faith, even now.

I'm going to be honest right now, I've been having issues and up until now I wasn't sure on how to handle it. Well even now I cant say I can handle it properly without fully understanding Islam. Maybe I'm talking to myself but getting caught up in Hollywood and fairytales messes with reality, life is not a movie- it's a test, stop pretending that you are living a dream because you are not.

The thing is after reflecting further I believe the reason why I was dipping in my faith was due to lack of consistency in my faith aswell as a lack of passion.

Sometimes in our lives we go through difficulties and during or maybe after those difficulties it's hard to turn to Islam because the desire to sin helps you to escape reality. You know what's funny? We can come back to Islam even if we are hellbent on rebelling you know why, because some way or another Allah will show you (out of his mercy) that your option won't work, and however you got there you should be grateful because it was only by His will. Even if it hurts to turn away from the sin because it seems like it will bring more pleasure to your heart turn away because true happiness can never be achieved through sin and if you don't desire true happiness then you are fool.

"A clever person identifies the problem a wise person avoids it."

Honestly I needed to write this out purely for the sake of easing my heart.

Just a little reminder

Your only choice is to follow my advice because if you don't you will feel the same, so there's no harm in atleast trying is there? I know sometimes it feels like there's no point and you just feel like saying you want to feel different without doing anything about it, but reality is you can keep doing that and feel more miserable every time you say it or be a force for change and try, like you tried to ride a bicycle or tried to swim- or tried for your exam. Action needs effort aswell as a positive attitude, so come on, get moving!

CHANGE III

A thought

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Maybe I feel guilty about this or maybe it's just a passing thought regardless I'd like to make a key point regarding my blog. In reviewing my blog I've come to see that alot of my posts are based on the needs of the muslim individually I don't think this is problematic but I would like to remind you and myself that living in this world and despite my posts about spiritual nutrition I'd like to make clear that we must not get wrapped up in our own problems and delude ourselves into thinking that first we must perfect ourselves before helping others- in no wat would I be advising this. Infact I think its essential to help others while we help ourselves, to be part of a process in where we build this Ummah and strengthen the bond between us to revive Islam fully and to uphold the words of Allah (SWT).

I'd also like to make clear that I myself am still learning and so if I erred please inform me, while I am learning I plan to InshaAllah base my posts on this too.
