roses for a very special occasion

I stood with my back to the kitchen door, about to take the food off the cooker.
Kareem just drove in few minutes ago and I expect the three of them to burst into the kitchen any second.
surprisingly he walked in alone, the kids not chatting with him as usual.
I was about to turn around, when his arms slid arround my waist, his right hand holding a bouquet of beautiful red, white and rosa roses- just infront of my nose.
hey, these are lovely."
"so are you"
"what's the occasion?"
"a very special one: I love you"

Me and the roses ended up in his arms resting on his shoulder, a tender smile on my lips, love shining from my eyes.
"I love you too"

11\272 عن أبي شريح بن عمرو الخزاعي رضي الله عنه قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم اللهم اني أحرج حق الضعيفين: اليتيم و المرأة.
( أحرج = ألحق الحرج- و هو الأثم - بمن ضيع حقهما، و أحذر من ذلك تحذيرا بليغا، و أزجر عنه زجرا أكيدا.)
حديث حسن رواه النسائي باسناد جيد
من كتاب رياض الصال
Muhammad (SAW), as wittnessed by many of his companions, said: Oh Allah, I herewith condemn those, who don't give A woman or an orphan child their full rights".

what if he was living in our world now, witnessing unfair treatment of women and orphans?

no where to go

no bed for me to sleep on
no room for me to stay in
no place for my books
no place for my cloths
no spcae for me.
I could build my own nest- but i am not a bird
I could relocate - but i am not a man
I could move out, but where to go.
same prison everywhere

I just wonder, how long is it till time is due and I can leave this world?

An advise from He, who loves me (1)

وَعَنْ أَبي هُريرةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : « أَلا أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِخَيْرِكُمْ مِنْ شَرِّكُمْ ؟ ثَلاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ، قَالُوا : بَلى ، قَالَ : خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ يُرْجَى خَيْرُهُ وَيُؤمَنُ شَرُّهُ ، وَشَرُّكُمْ مَنْ لا يُرْجَى خَيْرُهُ وَلا يُؤْمَنُ شَرُّهُ » . أخرجه الترمذي

Abu Hureirah, one of Mohammad's companions (SAW) said:
"The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: would you want me to tell you who would be the best man and the worst man between you?"
repeating it three times...
We- his companions said "Please do"
He said: The best of you is the one, who you would always expect good doings from , and are always safe from evil doings.
while the worst of you is the one, who you would never expect any good doings from, and you are never safe from evil doings."

I wish to be a person who never hurts others on purpose, and who others always feel safe from evil doings at my side.

what's wrong with me

Today i can "see" that what i considered a "loss" was actually a "stopping" of a bigger loss over the long run.
but a very strange feeling i have.
i am not "happy" to find out i escaped a bigger loss. i still feel sad. deep down there is a sadness and a bitterness i can not explain.
i know it will fade with time
i know i will feel better tomrrow morning, when my nephew comes to visit.
i know i will forget about this post.
but right now, i feel a deep sadness that i can not overcome, nor explain, and that i will have to bear for the rest of the night.

When your child needs you

.... when they do a mistake or take a wrong decision, it is mainly because they are confused (not because they are stupid or silly)
destructive criticism is their enemies role
yours is a loving guidance and a caring understanding.
Please be parent to your child or let them look for a replacement for you.

I received this as attachment to an email from a friend. I found it a kind reminder to me, to remember this simple, yet very important fact:
"Kind actions never die,
cruel actions are never forgotten,
the debtor never dies
so be and act the way you wish,
you are the debtor today and have a right
tomorrow you are the creditor and have to pay your debts back"
Today I want to try being a good person, caring for my family and friends and not hurting anyone because tomorrow i want my conscious to be clear when I stand in front of Allah (SWT) with no shame on my face.
Ya rab, never give me the power to hurt anyone, never let me be cruel to someone, never put egoism and arrogance in my heart.
Ya rab.

My brother's birthday

My dear brother,
this goes to you - INTENTIONALLY one day late, because i knew everyone would write on their blogs on this occasion.
I just wanted to be "different".I won't make it long

I just want to tell you that you mean a lot to me. your friendship and your "being my caring brother" really means alot to me.

I saw you at the beginning as a kind young man, ebn nas awy and a very good and intelligent writer.
then I came to see a side of you, which I knew existed, yet i never imagined it went that deep.
the side of you being "human", "kind", "mo7taram" or "considerate".
it was all said in one sentence, which is just imprinted in my heart
" Hebba, I knew it from the beginning. I noticed the change, as I am very observant"
those few words showed how considerate and "mo7taram" you are, for to see something, yet not to abuse it, not to point it out and not to push on the bleeding wound.

Thank you ya baraheem - i am borrowing it from Zou till i come up with a unique nick name for you.
thank you for being so kind and considerate and human when i mostly needed it.
thank you for being my brother. I am 100% positive that whenever i need a shoulder to support me, you will be there.

warmest and best wishes for a life full of happiness and success you so much deserve, dearest brother.
Hope your 23th (copying neisy's) year is just the start for a life full of love, warmth, success, happiness and everything you so much deserve.

N.B. I love that picture. it tells everything about you.
bravo ya Neisy :)
