Spare that which beats for you

​Release yourself from the bondage of living,

From the curses of your mind,

Your heart bears too much now, is weaker now,

Spare that which beats for you.

Let not the things dictate,

Take in the outside air,

For when there were no concrete roofs,

The sky blanketed over you.

Time is non existent, it is but perception,

You can flow along the current,

Or be the boulder that stubbornly sits,

What is time but a clock?

Be still, let the energy of love engulf,

Rise above to feeling what matters,

Stop holding onto misery,

Let your tongue taste satisfaction.

The Heirarchy

All emotions dont fit our dimension,
There are worlds beyond normal interaction,
There are dreams, desires and ideas,
Not everyone fits the average criteria,
Equality is misunderstood, and ignored,
We’re individuals in a massive horde,
Turning towards someone for inspiration,
The destitute will crack of desperation,
This isn’t one plane, it’s something deeper,
Dissolve this now, don’t wait for the reaper,
We’re not here to dance accordingly,
Theres a bigger game, a wider opportunity,
Break the heirarchy, it won’t get you anywhere,
Shrug it off, it’s not like it will care,
Stop for once, question yourself,
You’re not just another piece on the shelf.

Questioning the Education System

Author: Revels The education system. Going to school, followed by college is thought to be the necessary path to educating a child; without said institutions a person is thought to be uneducated regardless of any other qualities they might have. They might have read books from around the world but the mark of an institution bears […]

Fancy a feminist?

Salaam! I hope you’re all doing great, I know I’m not doing great with WordPress, I’m not reading here properly and I’m missing out on all of your gorgeous stuff but I couldn’t seem to fit my blog into my schedule, so whenever in sha Allah I am able to do that, I will definitely be more active.

Feminism, a topic which never fails to be brought up time and again. What is feminism though? Who brought it into the open? How do you have to think to be a feminist? Is one sort of feminism opposing to an another? Does feminism really even exist?

So many questions, yet not really any actual answers.

The thing is, feminism is something that does tend to steer out of control, but at the same time it is an important factor. It helped women to finally do what they can do today, and now we have a large group of men who are feminists, too. Women have always remained a sensitive issue in our history, I’m not sure why that’s been the case, I’m quite sure Adam and Eve didn’t have the issues that women faced later on. That’s a point I don’t often understand, but the point is, feminism is still a thing.

I’m not against feminism, not at all, I’ve always been inclined to it, but I think today lots of women are forgetting the actual problems that women suffer from and instead introduce a certain “freedom” that really only belongs to the elite, who have no cares and worries like the common woman does.

Why won’t a die hard feminist let her maid have a holiday on women’s day? Rather ironic, yes? Is showing off and dancing in public really what we want to do? Don’t you think women have REAL problems? And yes, I do not believe that the society that we live in will change just because you bring a dance routine into a crowded bazaar, men in the subcontinent do not have the mental capability to absorb that a woman could do that and get away with it. They will laugh at you, they will ridicule you, but darling they will not join your flashmob and then become your best friends. It does not work that way.

Point of my post is, let’s address real things here. Women who suffer from abuse, women who are denied an education and a job, women who want to do something more with their lives and talents. Let’s help them out for a change instead of moaning on and on about what a ‘narrow minded’ society we live in. I agree that a lot of things here are narrow minded and rather unislamically conservative, but let’s look at the broader perspective and join to make feminism the right cause.

But again, is my feminism the same as yours?

Let me be

Salaam! So let me warn you beforehand that this is not one of my usual positive kind of sides.

Today I’m going to ask a question. Why is it so hard for people to be good? Why can’t folks just be nice to you, if they want to talk about something serious, why not just be civilised and have a normal discussion about it? Why do they have to be so rude and impatient about it?

I’m a calm person, usually I don’t flare up or anything. But lately it’s just been too much and I feel this intense anger inside me that is absolutely burning and I can’t seem to let go of it. I feel angry at almost everyone and everything.

I’ve lost trust in humanity. I’m trying not to lose hope, we do have good people here. I’m just going to focus on the good ones in my life. So what if a lot of the people I know don’t give a care about how I might feel. So what if I try hard to please and it just ain’t happening. I have my select group of people and I cannot be bothered leaving this bubble anymore. I feel like dealing with these people is pointless and sometimes with the most absurd reactions.

I don’t know. Maybe I should try harder. But it’s come too far. I don’t want to anymore. If those people don’t bother, then should I really waste my time when I could be using that for people who care about me?

That’s the hard part though. You can’t break off relations. You have to maintain ties. It might seem impossible, it certainly does at the moment,  but hopefully it’ll work out. Hopefully.

May you not see such horrid days and people, take care of yourselves folks. It’s an unbelievably hypocritical world a live in.

The saying on my wall


Hope you’re all doing fine, are doing something positive in your lives and trying to make something better happen, because for sure there are SO many people who are definitely being a little too negative for me.

I have a saying on my wall, it says,


“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a story teller.

Ibn Battuta”


Now, I know I don’t know how my whole travelling dream will come to pass, sure I’ve made plans and read up a lot, but I don’t even know what’s going to happen tomorrow so I doubt I’ll know about what’s going to happen in the next few years. Yes, I don’t have the complete freedom to just pack my bags and leave home to go wherever I want to, but then, who does anyway? We’ve all got our paths, our storylines, to follow, right?

So when someone comes over and they sit talking to me in my room and read that quote, most of them go, “Oh, you’re going to travel the world? Maybe dream something that’s slightly possible now?” And so much more, where I’ve been made fun off to plain just thought stupid for dreaming it. I’ve thought of hiding the quote so people don’t see it, I don’t talk of my dreams anymore.

But I have still got something to say. I want to tell all those people out there to stop. If someone is strong enough to dream about something, then let her or him do it. If you cannot, then that does not mean you go about trying to destroy and ridicule those who want to think and dream.

It’s because of negative people like these that dreams are shattered and hearts broken. I just want to say, stop. Don’t be so horrid. You don’t know what I’ve been through or where life is going to take me, so I’d rather you stop being all high and mighty and stop right there. I’m glad to actually have a dream, I read about different places, in my books  I’ve been to half the world already, and it sparks my curiosity about the other half. I do not spend all my time thinking how many likes and comments I’ve had, I do not bother myself with how many times I’ve worn a kameez, petty things like that are what bring us down. They make us forget what we can actually achieve, our true potential.

So I’ve just got to say this, all you out there who think I’m a naive little person who doesn’t know what she rambles on about or what she dreams of, please go and sort yourself out first. You’ll never believe what dreams hide within you!

The Storyline

Salaam! Hope you’re all good.

So, as you all know, I’m human and I have my down days. I have my moments where I sit and think of why something particular didn’t happen to me and how something could’ve been different etc. etc.

But one way I get back on track is when I realise it’s all predestined. Yes, we have our choices, but our choices depend on the destiny we have. Our lives have been planned like a story book, we will follow certain paths, and there we will be subject to decisions and choices, because after all we do choose what kind of lives we want to lead.

To make sense of what I said let me put it into these words, for example you could’ve been a poor person. Now, it has been written that you will be poor and you will not have the money to live lavishly as you see others do. You can either think positively and say, oh well, this dunya isn’t meant for me anyway, let’s just get this over with with a good attitude so Allah is happy that I still made the most of my unfortunate situation. Or, you could think, why was I chosen for this and not riches? Then spend the rest of your life sighing over what could’ve been, eventually ending up in a depressed state of mind where you do not want to do anything good or worthwhile.

The choice is yours.

So, what my point is, don’t dwell on what your life could’ve been and how something different could’ve happened. You weren’t meant for this place anyway, and so we were all cast as different characters in a big storyline, a story encompassing such a massive span of history and area. Doesn’t that itself feel marvellous? To be a part of something so huge, such a massive project that God laid out. You’re going to have to play your role, you don’t and maybe you can’t understand why, but that doesn’t mean you don’t play your role to the fullest.

Relish your character, because the part you got picked for was what you played best. Now choose to play it positively and prove that you can do the best to your ability.

JazakAllah for reading and have a lovely day!


Up and away maybe?

Salaam everyone! I know I know, don’t blog as often anymore. To be honest I find that I want to read more than write these days.

We’re all aware of everything that’s happening, and it is so sick it is amazing. Are our lives so petty to major powers that they feel they can play around with them? Kill who they want, bomb who they want and then just issue statements expressing sorrow? How hypocritical can these people be?

I was thinking about this as I sat by my window, with the rain pouring down and splashing everywhere. We’ve been given this beautiful world to live in, and instead of trying to beautify life we tend to kill off anyone who doesn’t agree with our standards.

What standards? Does everyone not have the right to have standards of their own? If your standards have no legit base then I rather think opinions should be given a level of tolerance that they are not. How you define normal and how I define normal could be completely different in both our thinking. But that’s because we were made that way. And we were made that way so we could see the diversity Allah has created, to enjoy it, to discover more of how interesting the world is. Instead, we think to argue with whoever disagrees with us. STOP. Now. If you disagree with someone, give them their space. They are entitled to their opinions. Don’t force your ideas down them. That isn’t how we work, we work because we have such a diverse group of people doing different things which help us all in different ways.

And though I’ve said this before I’ll say it again, give people the benefit of the doubt. The only way we can now bring some change is to be positive ourselves. It doesn’t matter if you know the other person doesn’t deserve it, just do it. Be positive yourself, because otherwise I doubt we’ll ever change. The biggest problem I see is the lack of tolerance. Be more patient, please! Kill your ego, learn from others, work hard to see them smile. Don’t be the negative one, even if you’re left out, even if nobody likes you, try and work to bringing a positive aspect to that. You and me, we’re both given qualities which we have to use, don’t destroy the potential they own. Work on it, make sure you start today. Write it down maybe, and soon you’ll be impressed by your own doings and the results you get.

Wasalaam! Take loads of care.

Until whenever I write again!

Sabr means… to be patient?

Salaam! Hope you’re all well and having a great month of Ramadan, although it does seem to be going away so quick!

I wanted to talk today about sabr. I heard someone talking about it, so I figured, this is rather a good thing.

We have to be patient in a lot of situations, situations and places where we cannot afford to lose our temper. But that’s not entirely sabr, because sabr comes when you are content.

If you know you’ve got some high official at your back and he’s handling your affairs, you know you don’t have to worry. Right? If you have a problem and you have someone high and mighty go,  “Oh don’t worry, sahab ji, I’ll handle it”, you’ll automatically feel rather relieved right?

That’s exactly what Allah says. He says He is with those who are the sabireen, the people who do sabr. Now, you can’t get any one who’s higher and mightier than the Creator, the Owner Himself. So why not try doing sabr when life gets tough, and in sha Allah He’ll  be there to sort every thing out. He owns the place, my friends, He literally made everything. All the problems, all the emotions, all the people, all the things, all the planets, everything! He is THE one you would want by your side.

So why not? When the going gets tough, then why not let Him hold the ropes and decide what to do. We seem to be very good at getting ourselves into trouble, I think it’s time we surrendered to Him.

Submitted to Him. Islam means submission, and eventually when we submit we adopt sabr. The moment sabr rules your lives, you shall be the most content person on the planet. Believe this! Because He says it Himself, so many times in the Qur’an. It’s like He’s worried so He keeps assuring us He’s by our side. All we got to do is have trust and be patient.

What do you say folks? Shall we give this a try? Shall we aim to accept and trust Allah with whatever happens? Because the moment we do, is the moment we attain what we most deserve.
