News Update

Assalaamualikum Wa Rahmtullahi Wa Barakatuh,

I am sorry for hardly posting, I have been studying and I have more duties at home now.
Not that it's an excuse, I made this blog so I should be consistent.
I think I'm losing ideas, I'm not as practical anymore, mainly because I've realised not all problems can have solutions from other people..I.e me. There's emotions I've felt and experiences I've been through, though I've recovered. I couldn't honestly say how I got there, and I hate that. I hate that I can't help you, the reader through your struggle. I just don't know if I am in a position to give advice, when I can't even coherently give the advice.

Well I have an idea. I do government and politics right, so we have to discuss the news everyday, so I could give you a news update with an Islamic perspective, while I think of Islamic solutions to your individual problems. Okay so recently there's talk of Conservative and Labour manifestos right, MIlband got slaughtered for missing out the deficit which in fairness Ed balls already mentioned but anyhow now you have Cameron jumping on the bandwagon about EU, which obviously an attempt at decreasing attention for UKIP. Then you have talk of cutting taxes and mansion tax, which might as well be called Zakat because that's what it is, Mili Islam thought of your solutions years ago. 

Anyway though the conservatives make a logical argument, I still don't see how they will reduce the deficit, they may be gunning for Miliband but in reality, them cutting taxes will just make us pay more tax on other things. Though cleverly they haven't mentioned. You musta heard about the Sun Sex Sting in the news right? The MPs got caught up in sending pictures to a fake woman who was actually a Sun journalist. The hilarity of it. We choose these people to run our country. 

That is why you don't get man to rule, because man errs and clearly these men fall far too deep. 
Yet when religion comes into question. No, not possible! The audacity, religion, God who created us. He know how to rule us perfectly? What a question! 

The thing is. In some cases I agree with actions being implemented by MPs, but in general I still see the flaws, those cracks aren't going away, they will just get bigger I'm afraid. Zakat balances the wealth. What doesn't make sense about that? If you don't pay towards the poor how will we ever maintain equality? Honestly it really does show you how much the private businesses control society because it's obvious the mansion tax will never go through what with the political parties being endorsed by these businesses.

Yet people know this, but they choose to remain in the fog, if only you would walk out of the box that limits you , it's just a line on the floor people! Walk over it!

For now, I don't have much else to talk about. Till next time..

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."
(13 reasons why: Hannah's message to Clay )       Dearest,       You have given me the greatest possible            …

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…
