It Has Been A While

April 20, 2016 § Leave a comment

Has it been 2 years? I looked back at the last post and it was published on 8th January 2015, so okay, it has been just over a year. I find that strange because time feels as though it moves so quickly, but then it obviously has not been going as quickly as I felt it had.

What has happened? What has changed? Questions I ask myself and others might too.

Well, firstly, I completed a Foundation Art & Design course which was the duration one year, and that explains my absence, I was so busy putting my all into it I stopped properly blogging half way through. Usually people who want to go to universtity in the art, design or graphics sector will take this course as an advantage over other applicants, say over someone who has just finished A-Levels. When I was applying for the course it was all for fun at the time, to fill empty time and I was adamant that I did not want to go to uni afterwards.

I learned so much and taught myself so much during « Read the rest of this entry »

‘Indeed the worldly life is about broken remains that are beautified by desires, it is a trap for heedless hearts.’

Poem of the Day: A Point of View

August 30, 2014 § 2 Comments

They said blindness is the loss of eyesight
I said it’s the loss of insight,not eyesight
They said love is an ordeal
no good is to be expected from it
and if it continues it doesn’t last,like a house made of sand in the rain
I said:love doesn’t die because of a lover who tripped over it
It’s enough for love that’s it’s name was derived from the core of the heart
I see it is a blessing
Even if we disagree with each other
And why should we be alike?
For unlikeness was there from the time people were created
A point of view
O who sees that love is abandonment,
Tears of awakening nights
Let me tell you that your dread won’t stop destiny
The sweetest of love is the type that burns in the heart with no sparks
And love was kept by the one who called out
in the strings of early dawn
With love the Nasiri come preaching through villages!
With love Dawud whispered to his Lord and invited the rocks
And Ali sacrificed himself for our prophet on the bed in the time of danger
With love has Zamzam poured forth
With love the mother’s breast produced
My friend!If it wasn’t for love
My sins would have never been forgiven!
With the love of the Most Dignified and His slave I escape Hades
A point of view
Have you realized the meaning of love?
Or shall I give you more examples?
Behold!May Allah preserve you
Perhaps you will reconsider!
I don’t want you to be singled out
as a being bitter and unproductive
I have given you my spindle
and it’s up to you to choose the wool for it
A point of view. .


Time & Contentment

Many times a day we ask ourselves many questions. Questions about ourselves, questions about the world, the universe. We wonder, we ponder, we dream.  We lie, we fear, we ask for forgiveness. We do things we don’t mean to, we regret- or we don’t regret.

Our emotions flicker so quickly, like a candle flame in the wind before we snuff them out. We cannot decide what we feel, we change our minds before « Read the rest of this entry »

I came across this beautiful nasheed for Gaza a few weeks ago. This has no music in it (in fact the channel is solely based on no music nasheeds) The words are beautiful.
