One of My Favorite Hadeeths

قال عليه الصلاة والسلام :

المؤمن القوى خير وأحب إلى الله من المؤمن الضعيف وفي كل خير ..
احرص على ما ينفعك واستعن بالله ولا تعجز ..
فإن أصابك شيء فلا تقل : لو أني فعلت كذا وكذا ولكن قل قدر الله وما شاء فعل
فإن لو تفتح عمل الشيطان

Handy Woman

I just fixed the cable of our receiver by remembering how my dad fixed it like 7 years ago (yes, it is an old receiver )

Ana mabsoota awy :D

The first thing it played was the infamous commercial:

Ebny beetak yabn balady kollena nefdal warak
Ra7tak enta hamm 3andy wenta awla nekoon ma3ak

Beeeeeetak hans3adak tebneeh
Kollena wa2feen gambak feeeh

من أقوال علي بن أبي طالب

من أصلح ما بينه وبين الله أصلح الله ما بينه وبين الناس ، ومن أصلح أمر آخرته أصلح الله له أمر دنياه ، ومن كان له من نفسه واعظا كان عليه من الله حافظ

إذا نزل بك مكروه فانظر فان كان لك حيلة فلا تعجز وان لم يكن فيه حيلة فلا تجزع 

إن تتعب في البر فان التعب يزول والبر يبقى

من عظم صغار المصائب ابتلاه الله بكبارها 

كل نعيم دون الجنة فهو محقور  وكل بلاء دون النار عافية 

العفاف زينة الفقر  والشكر زينة الغنى 

أسوأ الناس حالا من لا يثق بأحد لسوء ظنه ولا يثق به أحد لسوء أثره

إن النعمـة موصولـة بالشكــر
والشكــر متعلـق بالمزيـد
ولن ينقطـع المزيـد من الله حتى ينقطـع الشكـر من العبـد

Purposeless Post

I have many unpublished posts. Mostly rant, post-fight emotions, ranging from simple quarrels that are actually funny, to waves of rage. Mostly they talk about the same thing, how confused I am, how uncertain I have become, how angry, apathetic and in total despair.

I am starting to get into a "I don't like this blog anymore" phase. I think a lot of closing it, or abandoning it, or just leave it to rot in the blogosphere.. Other times, when I write a new post and feel that I recorded something down, something that might be of a tiny winy use, I feel glad that I still have it.

But to be honest, I don't speak my head off when I write in this blog anymore. I never did actually, but now it is even more. Always the:I should say this, I must not say that. No rant about work no rant about family no rant about friends, no rant at all!! All my rants are unpublished. It is not that I mind, I mean the process of writing down what I feel and channeling out whatever useless and unrelated series of thoughts is good enough for me.

Tesba7o 3ala 7'eer.

I decided that this Ramadan insha'Allah I will try to read the Qura'an differently. Year after year, and time after time, I read many verses that i could not understand, or misunderstood. I decided that I will read it slower this time but just to read it better. I will probably try reading out of ketab tafseer. I mean if I could get deeper meanings out of novels I read and movies I watch, I better get deeper meanings from the verses of the Quraan.

The main thing that I want to understand is: coherency. I don't know if others have these questions or not, but I usually wonder why a certain Suraah is named a certain name, or why are these two seemingly different topics mentioned beside each other in the same Suraah? Why is the most mentioned prophet Story is Sayedna Musa with Bany-Israel? I have many other questions that have to do with the Arabic structure of the Ayahs and whether there is a significance of the ordering of the Surahs, the circumstances behind some Ayahs and Suraahs that would definitly clarify a lot of things about the Quraan. I am sad that I know so much about other things (that might be even useless) than I know about what Allah has to say to humanity.
