O Islamic ummah where are you? A cry for help from within our hearts to stand united by means of our faith. A cry for peace with each other but first with ourselves. A cry for submission not to our fears but to the Almighty's will. O Islamic Ummah where are you?

Self Righting the Self-righteous

Self-righteousness is the trust in your own righteousness and to believe that ones' self is better than others because of a system that a person was either born in or has established for him/her self. We think of ourselves better than others because of whom we are, despite the fact that we are nothing but the sum of our experiences and the collective of our very limited knowledge. For all of us, the building blocks of our consieous existence and what defines us is always the same, Religion, Color, Race, Education, Social Standing and status and even Nationality but what is it in all that, that makes some of us think we are better than others?

Of love not zealotry...

It was a rainy August day in the state of Florida in the United States, having woken up late for an important appointment I called the cab company before jumping in the shower so as to make up for the time lost. I rushed to get ready and not before long I heard the anxiously awaited honk through my bedroom window. I then skipped steps down the stairs and slid carefully into the cab while giving out a sigh of relief for still being able to make the appointment on time.
