Arab-beee? April 24, 2005

Posted by Muhajirah in General.

Asalaamu Alaikum,
In sha Allah you are all well.

Well as usual it is me who runs all the errands (ok no one else was at home for my mum to ask, but that’s beside the point) Anyway, my mum called me down to go to the local grocery shop to get a few stuff. So i stick on my jilbaab, hijaab and start walking up the street. It’s a pretty nice day (man it’s a very nice day), wanted to walk nice and slowly but my mum told me to hurry up. Anyway so i get to the shop and head straight for the tomatoes- first thing on the shopping list. So there i am minding my own business, looking for some decent tomatoes (was talking my time but who cares) and this old geeza that works at the shop goes to me… well actually i don’t know what he said to be honest, i think she was speaking Pashto, or Farsi or whatever Afghani’s speak- i think he was afghani anyways. I didn’t have a clue what he said so i was like, what do i do, ignore him, pretend i didn’t hear him or just nod and smile. I decided to ignore him and pretend to be deeply engrossed in tomato picking. So he goes ‘ Arab-beeee’ – it took me a while to get what he was saying. When i finally figured it out was like no, trying my best not to laugh. (Man me an Arab LOL!) Then a few minutes later he goes ‘Ahhh Pakis- staaah- ni’ I was like yeh and walked off, as fast as i could- the crappy tomatoes would have to do!

Waslaam and bye


Who needs the sound of music April 8, 2005

Who needs the sound of music, when you got the Quran recitation! I have to say, there is nothing better than listening to Quran recitation by one of my favorite recitors- Ibrahiem Al Jibreen! MashaAllah he has a beautiful voice!

During the past few weeks I have really experienced one of the amazing miracles of Allah SWT. Just reading the translation of the Quran leaves me totally amazed and in awe. Whilst listening to it, leaves tear running down my eyes, out of love for my Lord. I can’t thank Allah SWT enough for making me a Muslim.

Another reason why I am happy today is because I finally completed my mission (gotta make it sound exciting) Islam channel- the Islamic channel launched on sky some time back, have this Quran Recitaion programme. They have the most beautiful recitor ever. When I first heard it I was like W O W. Absolutely amazing! Since then I had been trying to find out who the guy was! I searched high and low, I emailed the channel -no reply, I searched the net, everywhere but couldn’t find his name. But finally I have not only found his name, I found a website that I can download his translation. In sha Allah in the next few days I will put it up for y’all to listen. And for those who wanna download his stuff, his name is Tawfeeq As-Sayegh and you can download his recitation at: http://www.al-qaria.net/index.php – go to downloads section (you may need to register)

Hope you enjoy listening, take care

Wasalaam and bye

Will the boredom ever cease? April 5, 2005

Asalaamu Alaikum,

In sha Allah you are all well.

Well as expected I did zero work in the holidays, absolutely none what so ever. The thing is I really can’t be bothered any more. What is the point! (Ok there is a point, but I can’t be bothered) Surely there must be something more productive to do then slave away for years in education, to get a job to.. well slave away some more!

I’m just really bored at the moment, with everything! And that’s the problem. I used to be so passionate about stuff, and now I think ahhh what’s the point. I remember I was always up for a good argument with anyone who dared disagree with me about politics or something. Now I’m just passive, I’m done arguing and trying to make people understand right from wrong (Looks like I still have my arrogance aye!) I’m kinda sick of everything at the moment, I need something new to do, a holiday, an adventure.. something!

Ahh well for now I just gotta stick to it I guess.

Take care all

Wasalaam and bye.
