ASHAMED !!!!! I think, my views are totally echoed in the following link.
ASHAMED !!!!! I think, my views are totally echoed in the following link.
This is one video, very close to my heart. You’ll understand why.
This video is powerful. It is deep and if you possess an ounce of empathy, as a human being, you will join me, in condemning all the atrocities, that we ‘the super intelligent race’ has caused on ‘everything’, we come in contact with.
WAKE UP HUMAN BEINGS !!!!!
This world belongs to EVERY creature that Allah ALMIGHTY created.
STOP being selfish.
This world has witnessed enough of your GREED, LUST AND LUDICROUS ACTIONS.
Its time to show that we human beings have a fraction of HUMANITY buried somewhere deep within us !!!!
This world is HOME to you as much as it is, to the ant stalking in your garden.
STOP abusing ANIMALS ~
Stop the senseless breeders of cats and dogs !! Enough cats and dogs, roam the world, looking for a warm cuddle and some affection. Stop being biased to one breed ~ and the breeders WILL DISAPPEAR !
Dog fighting and cock-fighting is as barbaric as what the Romans, engaged in, for entertainment ~ It enrages me to think, we call ourselves, civilized !!
Stop the senseless poaching of Rhinos and Elephants, in Africa.
Stop killing dogs and sharks to fulfill a special meal desire, in the Far East.
Stop your insane killing of seal pups in Canada.
Stop slaying crocodiles and snakes to use in your exotic brands,
Stop the madness of white lion breeding and eventual killing.
Why does the world, still believe that getting a lion to behave like a kitten in a circus is amusing !! Its repulsive !! You are stealing the dignity of these magnificent kings of the wild !! These regal animals deserve their rightful thrones in the jungles and savannah ~ not a pathetic caged life !!!
Lions and tigers, were meant to roam and rule, the deep jungles ~ they were not designed by the Almighty to be a trophy piece in some palatial tomb.
Stop cutting down trees ~ it is home to millions of small and big creatures
These trees are our homeland filter system ~ Their mere existence enriches us and stops us from choking on harmful gases !!
Stop the never-ending pollution from your factories, cars and those GOD-FORSAKEN ship tankers, that endlessly kill an entire generation of sea-life with their oil spills.
And finally, industrialization and commercialization naturally have advantages and disadvantages.
Have you ever visited the numerous kitchens in a cruise ship ? The foray of exotic meals served to the rich and famous is outrageous !! ‘THAT’ is your lesson 101 on the disadvantages of commercialization ~ pitifully.
We are frantically running a race ~ a race against time ~ a race against our own destinies ~ a race where we topple and defeat everything in our path, paying little heed to the insane reality of what we leave behind on the tracks. We humans, CAN maintain a balance ~ we CAN coexist in harmony with the rest of Allah’s creation. We may have been blessed with an added advantage of superior limbs, and superior thought process and superior compassion, but we rarely tend to make use of the later two.
We are transformed into fickle-minded mere mortals, who are enthralled by one defining news that concerns us for a certain span of time and no sooner does it get chugged away, along with yesterday’s newspaper and its news.
Dear Fellow Humans :-
STOP YOUR THOUGHTLESS SILENCE ON ALL ATROCITIES THAT YOU WITNESS, be it on humans or on animals or mother nature ~ SPEAK UP !!
Your NOT A TREE ~ YOU WERE GIVEN A VOICE FOR A REASON ~ NOW USE IT FOR THE RIGHT REASON.
Assalam Alai kum brothers and sisters. I trust, you are in good health and are counting your blessings everyday.
The link above is an excellent short video based on our existence and how we can remove the corrupt, evil sins from our hearts. It is a beautiful metaphor and I’m sure, you will like it, hence sharing.
The doors of Rehma (mercy/forgiveness) will remain open for us till the moment, we take our last breath, hence don’t assume you will not be forgiven. Allah swt can and will pardon the worse of the sins, provided the niyaah (intention) is sincere and the remorse is true.
A family we knew, had a daughter, who suffered at the hands of a chronic illness for all her tender life. We realized, perhaps, she was a test from the Almighty. Eventually she passed away leaving her parents with a broken heart.
A few years later, the only other child, an older son, matured and carried forward the responsibilities of his fathers’ business. The father was beside himself. A young, charming, well-behaved, well-disciplined and responsible son, is a dream come true. The parents had him married and the following year, the young bride and groom, performed Hajj.
Although, they are our family friends, we barely kept in touch, over the years. Never the less, I have a deep-rooted respect for this family and upon hearing the beautiful news, I was overwhelmed with joy.
Sadly, it was short-lived.
A couple of years later, the said young boy, committed suicide.
Death of a child, in itself, is the harshest emotional devastation, but loosing your child to suicide can add an unbelievably surreal dimension to this trauma.
And then begins a string of speculations of why he took such a drastic step .. .. perhaps monetary issues, perhaps business decline, perhaps he did not bear children and perhaps a dozen other factors, which we may never know and in so many ways, its none of our business ! But here is whats really important :-
My dear brothers and sisters, suicide is haram. There is no other way to put it mildly.
Please remember, we are placed in this world to face the trials, to endure hardships while keeping our imaan (faith) intact. We CANNOT and MUST NOT give up.
Talk to anyone of your family members, friend, relative, a trusted neighbor, a colleague, the imam in your masjid ~ if nothing else, turn to a psychiatrist. But DONT give up. Whatever problems, you face, there is ALWAYS a solution. Sometimes, we have to persistently search for it, and sometimes, patience brings it at our doorstep, never the less, there is ALWAYS a solution. However there is no solution to DEATH.
That is the trauma this elderly parent faces and will continue to endure every single day, for the rest of their lives.
The young bride who probably has a life ahead of her, with a stigma so intense, to carry in our hypocritical society.
What he did ~ is not the issue here becoz he is no more and no one can bring him back.
But what matters is what we learn from this unfortunate tragedy.
Asian parents are highly emotional and less logical parents. They pin too many hopes and aspirations over their offspring. In a way, they almost live their youth, thru their children, which is fine , so long as they don’t start imposing their expectations on them. If your raising responsible children, remember, when they goof-up(and they will) don’t remind them time and again, about your disappointments (they already realize their mistake) Reminding them will not bring them closer to you. It will only widen the barrier between them and you.
Brothers and sisters, No matter what your fix is, rely on your parents. There will be a temporary period of disappointments and you may curl in the feeling of being a let-down. But trust me, its far better, that they sort your hassle out than sort your coffin out. There can be no excuse for suicide. Absolutely NONE.
The void a parent feels after loosing a child is unbearably painful but knowing and blaming himself, all the remainder of his life, why his child could not turn to him as a confidante, is far more painful for a parent.
This video demonstrates how wrong decisions, wrong habits and wrong deeds can blacken our hearts and our minds and misguide us in the wrong direction, but ……………………… there is hope.
Ask Allah swt for forgiveness, refrain yourself from evil practices and reprimand your ways and there is no reason, why the Almighty Allah swt who is Ghafoor and Raheem, would not forgive his slave.
He is waiting for YOU to raise your hands in dua and with trust in your heart, turn to him. He alone will set you free.
so what are you waiting for ?
The animal kingdom never ceases to amaze me and the human kingdom never ceases to disappoint.

Please view this link and let me know your thoughts here.
Many a times, animal behavior is far beyond what human behavior can even comprehend.
Do come back with your views.
The following video had me thinking just how much “compassion” Allah swt has blessed even in animals. You’ll be surprised if you search in Youtube about animal compassion stories.
Have you ever thought, how is it, that human beings with the highest intelligence rate, still dump their own babies in garbage bags and dumpsters ? It is a cruel act ~ not to mention a very dangerous one for the baby.
Two things :-
1:- Accidental pregnancy ~ illegal pregnancy ~ pregnancy out of wedlock ~ what ever the reason :- People, stand up and take responsibility for your uninvited little baby. He is a living being ~ He is a blessing ~ He has been gifted to you to show you how to love and be responsible. When was the last time you dumped a diamond ring ? Think about it.
2:- We believe in our blown up and misguided minds, that “WE” are the individuals who have control over things ~ we would be looking after or caring for or raising the young baby ~ if we can not afford it ~ why have it ~ so dump it ~ right ? No ~ WRONG !!! You don’t wait for 9 months just to dump the baby. Its criminal. Even if you think, you can or will get away with it today ~ It will haunt your conscious every single day of your life.
Learn, learn from this Mama Cat in the video, how she stuck by her “prey” just becoz she nursed them. Have you forgotten that your Lord is the provider ~ not you ~ you are merely a vessel. He provides the tides and the wind to drift your sail. The Almighty tests you ~ and tests you for what ?? For the CHOICE you make.
Don’t let go of that precious baby. He may not have a voice today but on the day of Resurection ~ You will be answerable.
Three beautiful thoughts from Mr. Ratan Tata
1. None can destroy iron, but its own rust can!
Likewise, none can destroy a person, but his own mindset can.
2. Ups and downs in life are very important to keep us going, because a straight line even in an E.C.G. means we are not alive.
3. F-E-A-R : has two meanings :
I. Forgot Everything And Run
II. Face Everything And Rise!!
