Invisible Rope


Me and my friends tried this ^ Basically it looks like people are pulling a rope from either side of the rope so a car wouldn't be able to go past - but there's nothing there!

First time round, the driver just looked at us funnily and carried on as normal.

Second time round, the car slowed down.

A delayed response

A Delayed Response

While talking to himself Ibn Al-Jawzi was blaming his soul in a gentle way. He said: I found myself in trouble, and so I made Du'aa consistently, all the while requesting relief and comfort. The response to my Du'aa seemed... to be delayed, and so my soul became disturbed and worried.However, I rebuked it saying, "Woe unto you; look attentively at yourself, are you the one possessed or are you the possessor? Are you the one that is controlled or are you the controller? Are you not aware that this world is the abode of tests for you? If you desire that your goals be fulfilled and become impatient when they are not, then, where is your test? Is it not the ultimate test when you get the opposite of whatever you desired?

The Lion, Mice, Snake & Honeycomb

Imam Ghazali told story of a man walking in the jungle. A roaring lion ran towards him and the man ran as fast as he could to escape from it. He noticed a well in front of him and he jumped inside hoping to escape from the lion.

As he was falling inside the well, he grabbed onto the rope and saved himself. The man was so relieved but when he looked down he saw a big snake at the bottom of the well. It had its jaws wide open ready to swallow him up.

The man then looked up and saw two mice nibbling at the rope. A black mouse and a white were both chewing into the rope. The scary lion was still prowling outside the well.

Utilize your abiities

This is the worst form of pride, when you give it a religious justification, you think you can speak condescendingly to other people, you think you have a God given right to look down on people. If You really are concerned work on the brother/sister, be nice....

Nobody in 1400years, has the entire ummah agreed on one way, never, not even in the same time of the Sahaba - so why are you shoving your opinions down other peoples throats and causing disunity and discord in the Muslim Ummah?


It's all getting too much.

We all think about stuff, worry about the who/what/where/when/why's, sometimes it's rational, sometimes the situation is controllable; changeable.

Other times we can't do anything about it, or we're over-thinking and worrying unnecessarily. Like when you leave the house empty and you think "those people who were watching you get out the house will rob your house" (someone said that to me today! lol)

During those times the best thing to do is stop worrying.

I've said "It's hard to switch off your emotions" and "you can't just stop!".

But that's not true.

You can do things to take your mind off it, keep yourself busy, but that isn't facing the problem.

I've had such a pleasant day!

I'm just letting my feelings out (would normally do it on tribby but I'm feeling unselfish :P)If I were you, I'd stop reading...NOW.

So I gotta get out the house at half 8 even on my day day off. Except I'm running a little late and I have to walk quite fast too.

I get to the charity shop and I'm told I will get to be on the till for the first time - Yeahhhhhhh! That's better than having to touch all those dirty, smelly clothes!

But no, I got stuck with the stinky unhygienic guy who was scratching his head like mad and standing there cleaning his ears with his hands - I am not exaggerating when I say I was about to be sick and gagged.

Pakistan - Land of the Pure

Embarrassingly, I don't know the history of Pakistan that great detail but what I do know is Mohammad Ali Jinnah fought hard for the separation of India and Pakistan, to create a land for Muslims, to create a pure land. But, I'm sure if he could see what was happening in his country today he would be horrified. It is no longer the land of the pure.

I hate listening to the Asian news. All you hear about is how people are stealing, keeping others hostage, torturing them, murdering, EATING THEM. A lot of the times its their own family who are the victims. It's shocking and sickening. Ignorance is bliss.
