In this world if

In this world if you are not competitive enough, this world is going to eat you up and swallow you in and break you down into pieces. In this world, just being good inside ain't enough, you have got to good outside too. If you will look intimidated people will think you as food. You know Animal Planet? It's the same. If you don't want to be hunted, you become a hunter.



Just having a kind heart ain't good enough to survive here. People take you for what you appear not what you are… Continue

Smoldering

This is on the inspiration of Expector's Tips on English Usage (1): replace or substitute

The typical beloved prevailing in the literature always replaces the lover with the rival, or some other guy has been substituted for lover.  There is always the lover who suffers. Or again if beloved takes someone in place of lover to the party, again…

Supplication of distress

This  duaa is by Prophet Yunus (peace be upon him), whenever you are in distress or difficulty, and you call on God sincerely and repentantly, your call will be answered.

False Peace

I'm sitting in the corniche lawn facing the "M" building in front of a man-made lake, at the back is a busy street where cars come and go. Numerous people are roaming around and I'm not in the mood to do the same. I chose to have a place of my own, unavailable to anyone. My solitude.

As I thought it seems peaceful. No violence, no troubles, and no problem. People are having their good times with their relatives, friends, and acquaintances. 

The wind is blowing to my ears and…

Only if love existed...



Now, I can perfectly recall the time when I used to think that love was something real. It was the time when I was watching the titanic movie for the first time. I can so perfectly recall that very room, that very atmosphere where I watched the titanic movie. That movie had a kissing scene too. We weren't allowed to witness such intense love back then. 



Then, I was in school. God know why when my school mates didn't even know that girls and boys were different and they were…

Sacrifice

I questioned a wise man why Allah asked Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) to sacrifice his beloved son, Ismail (peace be upon him). He replied that Allah just wanted to see and show the nations to come later how much Ibrahim loved His Lord. He proved his love for Allah by preferring His order to everything including his beloved son. Allah already knew how much Ibrahim loved Him, but by putting such condition, He the Almighty wanted to reveal it on everyone.



If there was no such… Continue

The Nightmare of the Hunting in a Hospital

I had a nightmare last night, which was so real that I could feel everything including the pain , the smell of gunpowder and rough-touch of the criminal’s arm.

I was on a long-distance bus running on the highway with over twenty passengers and an old driver. I thought it was an pleasant journey home until a big weird truck showed up in front of the bus. There were metal cages and wooden boxes under a piece of cloth. However, what were in the cages frightened me like the first…

Expector Smith's Blog Challenge : Its >< It's

Have you ever asked yourselves what living means? For me being live is to stay in a giant spinning ball when it’s sailing in ocean stars. Its spin gives us magical effect in our outer appearance, some people would call it ‘getting older’ or ‘growing up’ and so on, but for me it’s a kind of time traveling. In life, it’s not only about ‘where’ but also’when’ which means our lives is framed by…
