ISIS and the Likes of It.

So today US launches air strikes in Syria to “fight” ISIS. Why does this sound so familiar? Oh right. 9/11.

We never learn, huh? It’s the same old trick and we fall for it every single damn time.

We are so quick to condemn these so called “Muslim terrorists” without having a single suspicion that it might be all staged.

It’s funny because yesterday I read the comment thread on TODAYOnline post about ISIS and wow, the Islamophobics in this city has finally emerged.

I still remember one comment which said “It’s Muslims like you who defend ISIS that bring evil to the world.”

Kepala hotak kau. No one is defending anyone. Suspending judgement is not defending. (And true enough, was it not wise to suspend judgement in the end?)

Why should we apologise? Firstly, they’re not Muslims. Secondly, we didn’t create them. So why should we condemn them? Kaffirs do what Kaffirs do. It’s their job. Why should we apologise for that?

Instead let’s look at the bigger picture. Why do we not see that this is a strategy for them to shift our anger and hatred towards another group? When the real culprit, the real evil-doers are the same people who created ISIS?

We need to widen our view, sharpen our minds, increase our knowledge, and prepare for the bigger war.

And no, I’m not talking about the inner war with your nafs. That’s another cowardly excuse to not fight the enemy.

Come, there’s work to be done.

Between Reality and Truth

Had a discussion with Mum this morning. About History, the current living system and Money.

I didn’t mean to make Mum upset. But I needed to make sense of what I’m feeling, what has been bothering me.

The difference between two generations is so evident. Mum kept on emphasising that without money, there is nothing you can do. However the issue of money is the least of my concern.

I’m not negating the fact that money is important. It is. But I hate when we start talking about it like it is the ONLY one thing that we need to have to survive. Money should be seen as a tool to survive. But it does not guarantee survival, success, and happiness. All those is only possible with Allah’s redha and we need to come back to that!

I hate it when they scare us like that. They excel in implementing that ideology in us.

"You have to work so that you can have CPF so that you can have a house."

"You have to have a certified certificate of education, only then you can have a stable job."

"You have to keep your CPF money with us, otherwise you will spend them all and become penniless."

What kind of society did it produce from such tactics? A greedy and emasculated one!

"Why should I give my hard-earned money to my children? They should learn the hard way to make a living and not live off my earnings! It’s mine!"

"What else can be done? This is the only system here. Just suck thumb and live with it."

What have we become? Why did we let them do this to us? Are we Muslims or not? Why do we take their Qada & Qadr?
No, I know this is the system. You don’t have to remind me. But don’t tell me this is the ONLY way to live. This is not living. I know the reality of the situation. I’m not stupid. But I am asking you, is this Truth? Is this Haq? Did Allah command us to live like this? Like cowards? Like there is no way out? Under the rule of the kuffars?

What have we become? This is not living. This is not Truth.

I feel so choked lately. The thing is, I knew of this long time ago. But the feeling came back even stronger since my trip to Negeri Sembilan and Janda Baik. Something awaken inside of me and suddenly now I realised how we are so detached from Allah in this city.

Don’t tell me to love this Reality. Don’t tell me to embrace it. I despise it, I’ll spit on it.

If I can’t escape from it, I’ll make sure the next generation won’t have to live through it.

Pray for us. We’re finding a way out.

Green Tea method
Take 2 green tea bags and soak them in cold water for 5-10 minutes
Place the now soaked on your eyes and leave them on for 5-15 minutes. The cold will help reduce swelling, and the caffeine in the green tea will rejuvenate the eyes.

Hold your fingers in ice or cold water until they are cold.
Gently massage your eyelid with your cold fingers, starting from the inner eye and working outward in small circles. The cold will reduce swelling and the massaging will push excess fluid out of your eyelid.
