A-Z of Mooslimists

Recent attempts to define the nature of the jihadist threat that we are fighting against have fallen short of the mark. Muslims, as we are oft reminded, are a varied bunch. Todays freedom fighters and compliant friends are the rebels and pariahs of tomorrow.

However if one was to map this out it would undermine the numerous phd’s that are underway on this subject, putting many hours of research on wikipedia at risk. Here, for your elucidation, education and entertainment is the A to Z of Muslimists. We start of with the letters A-H today.

Intercession on Judgement Day

Just the other day I was thinking about this and earlier today I was listening to a talk about how the Holy Prophet (SAW) will intercede for us on the Judgement. It was in urdu so I can't translate it with the exact same words and passion which touched me so here are a few ahadith about it:

The Holy Prophet(saw)the Intercessor of the Sinners said, “Allah gave me the option of
choosing between the power of intercession or having half of my Ummah admitted to
Paradise without any reckoning. I chose the power of intercession because that is more
important and will be more useful. Do you assume that my intercession is for the pious
Muslims? No, on the contrary, it is for those sinners who are steeped in sins and have
committed grave crimes."


Wonder how many people avoided this blog cuz of the title. hmm

Death isn't really something I like to think about, it's scary! But as much as I ignore it, I do end up thinking about it sometimes. :S

Today while writing a new years message I was going to say "2011 is going to be a great year for you - cuz I'm going to be in it"

And as soon as I was about to type that, I just stopped; my heart must have skipped a beat, as my head just thought "what if I'm not"

I don't think I've ever felt like that before. Like such a serious thought for something quite small. It's scary. Like as if I'm being given signs cuz I'm gna die soon o.O lol ok I don't really believe that but it was weird!


I finally installed the extension for google, which allows you to give yourself a certain limit of net usage.

I had to share this with you. The warning, when extending the time from TEN MINUTES to 180, reads:

Seriously, dude. The whole point of this extension is to stop you from procrastinating.

You're only hurting yourself.

And the kitten that gets an electric shock every time you click OK.

Are you sure you can live with yourself?

Maybe I should reduce the time? 3 hours is a long time!

Shaytaan's messing with my thoughts -_-

So it's that time of year again! :D... No not winter, christmas and SALES but Hajj, sacrifices and EID Biggrin

My parents just mentioned going on hajj and stuff which reminded me of something. Couple of years ago my parents mentioned that we might all go to Umrah.

My immediate thoughts:

OMG i'm not ready! i can't go yet!

What if i don't *feel* the spirtualness, the closeness, the awe, the love

What if i just can't concentrate?!

What do i tell mum and dad, though? I can't say I don't want to go


We didn't end up going.

But I now realise, that was all just Shaytaan putting me off from going. Whispering in my ear. Trying to create fear by using one of my greatest fears.
