"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Well I hope you are all in the best of health and iman.

Nothing much has been happening since Monday……apart from NM booking her ticket to Egypt . She will be going for 6mnths……and inshaAllah I will join her there on her third month.

I have just been contemplating life….well to be honest I have been contemplating my life. Not anything to put on screen yet…..its just a bunch of nonsensical mumbo jumbo half the time….but the other half is quiet deep and profound . Jut a few thoughts to reassure me that the crevices of my mind are actually filled with something meaningful .

I see that Firefly has tagged me to name Ten Amazing things about myself……..right now am sitting alone in my house…not feeling very optimistic so I don’t think I will be able to name anything amazing. Maybe I should ask those who know me…….

As humans its much more easier for us to address our negative points much more that our positive ones….although there are a few individuals out there who will contradict this statement… J

Maybe next post Firefly…after I have asked a few people and I feel less dubious and pessimistic!
Damn…I feel as though I’m wimping out………….

Somewhere but i dont know where...

I'm somewhere in between:
Imaginery and reality
Mediocrity and abnormality
A citizen and a nationality
A closed mind and a split peronality
begging for change and begging for salary
By Amir Suleiman
Brother Amir Suleiman is a spoken word poet who doesn't shy away from telling the truth. i like the powerful way in which he delivers his of my fav pieces is danger...if i can find an audio I will post it inshaAllah. I find his poetry easy to relate to......i feel where the brother is coming from. Anyway enough of my rambling........y'all stay in good health now inshaAllah
till then.......



Early Monday morning....and I am up. For what reason?........ I decided to be the good samaritan and help out on a Bank Holiday. I am starting to rethink this good samaritan thing......after a cup of coffee (don't wanna overdo on the caffeine and get dehydrated) I am still sleepy and I feel as though I have run a mile. Granted I didn't sleep Saturday night and last night I slept around 1am. It doesn't help at times that I am now exercising and trying to be active. Actually the exercising is good for me because all my old injurys are starting to resurface because of my unfit state.

Oh yea....another thing. It looks like my sister will be giving birth soon and guess who will be by her side (yep you guessed myself and I) even though my mother thinks it will put me off the idea of having a baby. But I me and my brother in law have made a deal....if he isn't there I get to go in the delivery room.

MD is coming back today from her six weeks holiday in Egypt to sunny Manchester.

I guess that's just about it for now.
So ciao!
