We Are United

With thanks to the Live Feed of snapchat alot people of the world were able to follow millions of muslims doing their umrah during Laylet El Kadr. For the people who have no knowlege about the Islam: Laylet El Kadr is the night when our holy book the quran was recited for the first time by our prophet Mohammed (May Peace Be Upon Him).

I was suprised to be honest I had never expected this to happen, but man the vieuw was beautiful! And what was it emotional to look at. It was overwelhming to see the unity of muslims from all over the world come together and pray together in such a peacefull and lovely manner. I was a bit jealous I really wanted to be there aswell it must have felt so amazing standing there with everyone and just pray.

CJ2N93IVEAA3XRQWhile recently the Islam was portrayed as a religion of terrorism, extremists and violence. It was eye opening how a 300 second feed can change so many minds and perspectives of something. My opinion for a first since a long time Islam was able to show how peacefull and united we are. We do not kill in the name of Allah nor in the name of the Prophet.

When people enter this holy place you do not see a black man or a white woman nor a rich person or a poor one. What you see was your brother, your sister a nice a cousin a big family reunion.  All in the same motion millions of people all over the world pray at the same time. The Vieuws shown by the mecca feed not only opend my eyes all again for the beauty of my own religion but alos the eyes of many others. From non- Muslims wanting to convert to people who saw muslim as terrorist to one who is intrested in the religion.

I hope that more and more people will see the beauty of this religion and no I won’t force anyone to convert nor will I hate you if you don’t, beacuse in the end all we want is to live peacefull together and help each other in need.

I hope people will now smile at a person with a hijab instead of just walk away and not to judge based on what the media says. Look for your own answers instead of just following.

Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful

Recently All I have been seeing is being be yourself post. People saying they should be their self but is it that easy? is it that though? People are trying so hard to be unique, to be seen that they lose sight of those who see them or loath for them. It’s sad.

When I think about it I remember a story my mom told me: It was about a girl who tried really hard to stand out. She got so caught up in it that she lost those who already thought she was unique. In the end she dies because she tries so hard that she turns depressed but thats a topic for another time.

What I am trying to say: do we the humans of this generation try to hard? So hard that we come up with a term for it : HIPSTERS, Like seriously? hipsters? you’re trying to be different so you just give yourself a new kind of name and all you could think of was a pair of underwear? Okay I guess?

What I’m curious about is mostly: what do you think everyday when you stand in front of your closet? I asked a few of my friends and came home with totally different yet the same answers.

” What do I feel like wearing today?”
” What would (insert lover\crush name) think looks good on me?”
” What would make people think of me as an hipster”  <– yep underwear is back again
” How can I look like someone confident?”
” Do I want to comfy or stylish today?”

All kind of different statements from people who say they are themself.

When are you honestly being yourself? I’ve been thinking because in my opinion the person who you are today doesn’t have to be the same as the person from yesterday while you’re still being “yourself”. I think we change everyday in order to “survive” if I may call it that and I don’t mean surviving as in not living  and just getting through the day , no I don’t mean that.

What I mean is that you just say what you think. How mean or painfull it sounds to the other person, because the truth mostly hurts. I think you’re being yourself when you’re not ashamed of the things you like or dislike. Being shy isn’t bad being hyperactive isn’t bad.  Chaining down your opinions , holding back actions that make you, you thats bad

Being different is good. Don’t fit in, don’t sit still, don’t ever try to be less then what you are or want to be and if someone does tell you you’re different. Smile and keep your head high, because you are a limited edition and not a copy 😊

Friday the 13th

I’ve always been the kind of person who did absolutely not believe in Friday the 13th, but yesterday sure took it’s toll on me and made me think about it. And no, I still think its a coincidence and that it has nothing to do with that particular  day…

I think, I hope..

It all started with a wake up call at 9:00 am from my mentor, because what is a better way to wake up? It’s getting better: she said I had to be at school in a hour to apply for my redo and, if I won’t make it I will have failed and inevitably be kicked off this school.

Good morning to you too.. Continue reading
