The World has Lost its Way

Warning for possible offensive content

Religion as a whole has played an imperative role in this world since the beginning of time. Despite the growing number of atheists and scientologists (whom themselves are known as religionists) one cannot deny the fact that all wars and major movements had, in some major way, to do with religion.

We know that when the British, Dutch, Portuguese and French colonists started to rule their respective countries, part of their corruption was to enforce Christianity unto the native people.

Even nowadays when the claim behind war lies in nuclear weapons and oil, everyone knows the truth lies in what religion that country predominantly follows. Only those willingly living in ignorance would deny that fact.

In fact, let me cite some examples.

Afghanistan – the taalibaan and Russians were fighting over what? Even when America came in so nicely to help, they had a second agenda. And conveniently they turned their backs on Osama bin Laden when it suited them.

Iraq – sure it was nuclear weapons they were hiding.

Burma – Don’t even lie to me and pretend that that genocide had nothing to do with those people being Muslims.

Palestine, Libya, Egypt, Syria – the list goes on. Even now with the #JusticeForAsifa campaign raging on, it boils down to what?

But what is my point here? That is the question.

You see, recently I received some horrifying news regarding the corruption of this world. Truth is, we know that this world is going to mash potatoes, but in what way?

I think the fact is that people have lost purpose, have begun to live unknowingly for the evil that resides in each one of us. No I am not being morbid. I’m being straight.

And what is that evil? Our desires . The world is living to do what it wants. And I promise you that that is the reason for all this hate and war and bloodshed and pain.

Every religion has a law and a certain way of life. If people respected that, this world would not be what it is today. Let’s face it. It’s out of control.

Children have no respect for their parents. People stab and shoot each other without giving a thought of taking a life. Rape and sodomy and blasphemy and nudity and…I cannot even continue.

It had become so terrible that even those considering themselves religious have warped their religion into an unrecognisable lump of coal.

The original Bible and Psalms have long since been lost and so Christianity and Judaism is no longer pure and now people commit heinous acts in the name of religion (*cough cough* ISIS*cough cough*)!!!

Then I come across this!!!

What is this rubbish? This PERSON claims herself a Muslim (spit on that because wth) and yet she goes against the fundamentals of the very religion of Islam. I’m sure that if I had to dig deeper into this issue, I would be even more horrified .

And it’s not only Islam. How many stories are there about corrupt Priests and what the Pope is really up to and there is chaos around the world simply because people warp what they want, to suit them.

Frankly I am so disgusted that if I had to truly express my feelings, we would not be able to publish this article.

We have to face it. People have lost respect and dignity and are only living to find a way to fulfil the emptiness in their souls. Perhaps it is by being the most controversial, most abhorrent human beings they can be. Who knows? In this race, everyone is winning and everyone will come out the losers too.

 

Allah (God) save us all.

Crime and our lives

We’ve reached a stage of living where none of us are really ever safe. It’s a constant worry every single second:

Make sure you’ve locked the car doors, don’t keep your windows rolled down, lock the gate and have cameras, switch on the alarm before going to bed and the list goes on. Ways to have some sort of peace of mind in order to remain sane because we don’t know if we’ll make it to the end of the day or if we’ll have a bullet through our heads.

In my home, the conversations we have at dinner are the best ways to have our cameras placed so that there are no blind spots and we’d be able to spot someone trying to sneak in when we’re reversing out of our yard. This is what the kids in my family are subjected to because of the crime in our country and all the others too.

We’ve reached a point where no one can be trusted. Not out work colleagues nor our own family members because anyone can decide that money is more important than loyalty.

Its been a while since we’ve posted anything, that’s because I’ve been looking for the perfect new piece to talk about and the only thing being talked about has been shootings, theft, hijacks, robberies, deaths etc. then today when I read the news about sixteen prisoners escaping from the Sun City jail, I decided that enough is enough.

The man who killed his four nieces and nephews.

The man who had twenty clitorises stored in his freezer.

Three people killed at a taxi rank shooting with two left injured.

Three school robberies in one week.

A traffic officer abducted by four men then shot dead.

These are only a few cases and yet its too much! So many innocent lives at stake and why? Because some of them are working hard to make something out of their lives so that’s the only incentive needed to take their earnings away?

Some have done absolutely nothing but their lives are also at stake because of jealousy and hatred?

If that’s not enough, we get to feel even more insecure because the few criminals that have been caught can easily waltz out of their cells and come out to terrorize us once again. To make it worse, not one, two, or even three criminals but sixteen. How is it possible that sixteen criminals can escaped a highly guarded prison with top surveillance methods unnoticed? If this is not a new low for our country, I don’t know what is.

It’s not fair that we have to live in constant fear, it’s not fair at times these criminals can get away with little to no consequences and that our lives are constantly at risk because of people who don’t want to work so they feel like its fine to steal from us, that they need to support their drug addictions or are just psychopaths who enjoy seeing us cower in fear.

Our first human right is the right to life and if even that right is being threatened what does that say about our country? And what is more sad is that we’ve all got so used to it that we’ve taken it onto stride.
I don’t know about you but I do know that I do not wish to life in such a state nor would I want my loved ones to have to suffer so.

But what can be done? Is anywhere safe anymore?

To Love All is to Eradicate Hate

To wake up safe and sound, knowing that walking out of your house bodes no evil for you, is a right that every human should have.

Being who you are, believing in what you want, and living your life is a right that every human should have too.

Respecting everyone’s opinions and ways of life, even if you disagree with it, is a responsibility that comes with all those rights.

So how dare we call ourselves humans of the 21st century when our biggest problem today is not money or power, but demanding that everyone live it in a certain way?

No, do not delude yourself and tell me that countries are at war because of money. That is a lie. Every single innocent person who is dying, loses their life because of someone’s hatred for what they represent.

And if that’s not the most disgusting thing ever, I don’t know what is.

Tuesday, being the 27th of March was Muslim Women’s Day. So why didn’t I post something in honour of that on that day, one may ask?

The answer is simple. Whilst it’s an honour to have a day dedicated to us, I don’t fully support the idea behind it.

Why?

Because every day is a day for every woman to be special and heard and honoured. And women of every religion. And so too for men.

So for that day do I mention the #metoo campaign, the gun violence, the bloodshed of this world? Or do I leave all that and talk about what’s really bothering me?

Let’s face it The 3rd of April approaches and while for some it may be a normal day, for others, especially those in the UK, it is a day of dread.

Why? For those of you who do not know, some evil, psychopathic monsters have declared it: Punish A Muslim Day.

You may think I am joking but I do not lie. This is an actual thing.

So there are people who will be forced to cower in their homes, in the fear that their lives will be endangered for a game. Why are more people not speaking out against this? Yes, reporting the news is one thing but what about telling people how to be safe, to tell them that they are not alone? What about letting people know that these psychopaths are not going to win and that we have not survived 1400+ years only to be scared by threats on a poster?

And newsflash for these nincompoops. You are not doing a very good job of trying to drown out the surge that Islam is experiencing because if the support that people are showing to Muslims and the hundreds of new masjids being built in London is any evidence then I can safely say, you have lost your campaign before it had even begun. 

Due to the horror of this campaign, another one has been launched and it has gone viral. The new, and improved, Love A Muslim Day.

So while we sit and seethe at the horrors being inflicted on all the humans of the world, we ask you to raise your hands and pray for the guidance of these terribly lost souls who have obviously gone astray and need someone to show them the way back to humanity.

Everyone is suffering so much in this world. How does anyone have the time to dedicate portions of their lives to hurting other people? What kind of sick monsters are you that you need to see others suffering to get pleasure?

I am unfortunately so used to hearing abuse against my religion and seeing people misinterpret our peaceful ways that I barely flinch. But this is taking it too far.

It’s back to the Days of Ignorance when Our Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon his soul) suffered with his followers and people would take pleasure in hurting them.

Remember, they never backed down and they came out on top. 

We will not back down and one day, we too will come out on top.

Desivloggers have made a video to bring attention to this atrocity. I suggest that you watch it and be careful around this horrific time.

Yours with love

Reporting for Change for the 22nd, The News – Our Perspective: What’s Happening Worldwide

I’m scared for this world

I’m scared for this world.

Oh! What have we done to it? Everyday I dread scrolling through my newsfeed,  hoping not to find news which rips my heart into bits.

News of indescribable oppression, tragedy, chaos and death. News which makes me lose my faith in humanity and takes away my breath.

The Syrian War, Refugee Crisis, Palestinian Situation, Saudi-Yemen conflict, who can also forget the recent Rohingyan tragedy? And every other country where oppression is still catastrophic.

Isn’t it a shame that we civilians have always been a target of corrupt leaders and politicians,                                                                                                                                        How the media always blames the common man for these tragedies.                                 And how about the constant disputes which exists within the Muslim communities?

If only, we all could join hands towards this injustice instead of creating divisions. And hopefully become friends instead of enemies.

If only we could show the world that our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) has taught us,                                                                                                                                               To never forget what unites us instead of what divides us.

Was kind enough to share this with us. She hits on a common problem eating up the conscience of all of those with even a thread of humanity left in them. We try our best to make a difference and Rana too chooses to make a difference using her words.

A little bit about Rana:

A caffein addict. Introvert. Short tempered within reason. An avid procrastinator. On weekends you’ll most likely find me snuggled up in a couch catching up on world news or reading conspiracy theories instead of going out and having fun.                                          I live with two cats. An extrovert toddler and a friend who turns into a husband especially when there’s cleaning to do.
