Its A Merry Eid

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

I find myself writing from the corner of a cosy room, plumped down on a beanie. Today as you may all know is Christmas, we as muslims do not celebrate Christmas however it does not stop others from wishing us a 'Merry Christmas'.

Christmas has become a universal holiday, originally it is the celebration of Jesus's Birthday however many do not even classify themselves as Christians yet still celebrate it for the sake of it.

Christianity, to me, just does not make sense. Why would Jesus sacrifice himself for the absolution of other's sins? Astaghfirullah. Thats accountablility right out the window. That's like me saying if a girl kills someone I should get punished yet she attains Heaven. Nauzbillah.

Today in the Hospital Ward there were very few visitors throughout the day, despite it being a 'holy' occasion there were very few people visiting their relatives. The majority of the Hospital Ward consisted of Christians, or said Christians.

It made me feel happy I am a muslim you know why? As a muslim we get reward for visiting the sick it's an obligation infact. We are responsible for our sick parents, or sisters, and on Eid it is not an exception. We as muslims are encouraged to take responsibility and accountability for our actions and it is not excused for any petty reason.

Alhamdulilah I am a muslim because without that AllahuAlam. Where would I be?

This was not meant to be offensive so forgive me if I have offended anyone.

Wasalaam

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
