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.

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

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.

UNWANTED

“In the times of ignorance, they buried girls alive.”

When I was young I would read this sentence in our Islamic History books and naturally, being a female, I was appalled. I’d think, “Well, I’m grateful that I was born long after those days!”

Isn’t it great that people don’t do that anymore? Well, yes, it would be great if people didn’t do that anymore.

But? They do.

Wait. What am I talking about?

Montenegro – a country in the Balkans. People who consider women to be inferior to men so that is exactly how women are treated there. I know that that is a problem in many other places too, that is why we have groups of amazing women fighting for women’s rights everywhere. But the people of Montenegro have taken it to a whole new level.

There’s an open secret. It was kept quiet until the Women’s Right Centre decided to speak up about it. This open secret I’m talking about? Selective abortion.

You don’t want a daughter because she won’t be able to carry your surname when she gets married? Well, that’s fine! Just take a prenatal test. If it’s a girl, you could always get an abortion. It’s that easy… and ugly beyond belief.

Milena, 29, has three children – her firstborn daughter Ines, and two sons Fedja and Bodin. Pregnant women in Montenegro often undertake a prenatal test to determine the gender of their babies. [Erik Messori/CAPTA/Al Jazeera]

I thought we had surpassed the time when women were considered nothing, when we were considered the possession of another and only good enough to bear offspring. I thought we were passed the time when the only pride of the family would be a baby boy to carry the name to the next generation. A time when there would be pressure on women regarding the gender of the child they bore, as if the gender could be controlled! This is absolutely absurd. You’re going to kill thousands of baby girls for the chance to give birth to a boy?

I mentioned in my last post, that we need to have a check on these peoples’ humanity and once again I have more proof that humanity no longer exists.

In a time that we call ‘the times of ignorance,’ they would bury their daughters alive. Giving birth to a baby girl was a shame because they needed a boy to carry on the family name. If the mother gave birth to a girl, she would be concealed and then disposed of in secret.

 

Mujo and Nermina have one son and she is 9 months pregnant. They are delighted that the new baby will be a boy. It is estimated that Montenegro, which has a population of just over 620,000, will have 8,000 to 10,000 more men than women by 2025. [Erik Messori/CAPTA/Al Jazeera]

 

You must be thinking, “But this isn’t the same thing!” Yes, my dear reader, it is. The only difference is that now we have the technology and tools to determine the gender before birth so it can be dealt with before things go too far. But they killed souls then and souls are being killed now. You might argue that it is not the same thing but us humans have different views, I guess.

I’ve heard and read of many who argue that Islam is oppressive to women. We have no rights and we’re restricted, according to them. I’d like to inform these people that when our Prophet, Muhammad (may peace be upon him) started spreading Islam, one of the first things that were cut out was the killing of innocent girls unnecessarily. Islam protected those girls and taught those families that to give birth to a girl was an honor. I speak as a female in Islam: In our homes, we are honored and looked after like one would look after his treasure and if we conceal ourselves, it’s not because we’re oppressed, it’s just because we’re too valuable to just be left exposed for anyone to even look at.

So the next time you try to accuse Islam of being oppressive to Muslim women, think about that. Also, think of the fact that it is not Muslim parents aborting their would-be beautiful daughters in Montenegro.
