Notes from Life...

Image
People tell you not to talk about death, its depressing.
Why not?
When will we get the time to talk about it and think about it then?
After death?? 

We have to think about death in our life only. It does not bring depression. It brings the wisdom.

Hatred spoils everything positive about you.

The best thing about life is you have to live it whether you like it or not.
The most difficult thing about relationships is, you have to keep them whether you like them or not.
The saddest thing about losing someone is, you have to accept it whether you think you can do it or not. 

Life will go on. You will not have to make much effort.
Losses will heal as the time passes.

The thing that needs your wisdom, your grace and your maturity is...
to keep the relationships going, to nurture them, to value them, to honor them, to heal them and not to let go of them. 

Relationships are made of a material which can never break, however hard someone might try. The blood relations are the most valued of them. Never break…

Part of a whole...

Men and women belong to the same species, the home sapiens. They have not originated separately to have competition with each other for their survival or to prove their worth. Just like every other thing in the universe has its partner so has man, in the form of a woman!
The British scientist Paul Dirac, who proposed that matter is created in pairs, was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics in 1933.
Men and women, thus, are part of a whole and not some separate entities that can exist independently without each other with no need whatsoever fulfilling from each other. 
This is completely a natural thing that man and woman are created to strive for some purpose. Their existence and togetherness is not just for the sake of happiness at the physical or mental level, rather they are created to serve a greater purpose. 
They have not been left unguided and shown ways to live a healthy life with standards and values which dictate their being from the most intelligent of the living creatures.

An eight years old, playful child is not yet responsible by nature. He might do some duties now and then but still the child in him shows up more often. This happens more when he is the youngest in the house. This little fellow comes back from school puts his uniform, bag and shoes in their respective places and washes himself up, eats food and so on. He remembers what important things he has to do for tomorrow's school. But, sometimes, the playfulness and carefree nature which children possess make them forget these things. They play all day long. When you remind them they can do their homework. You remind them to arrange their books and keep them in the bag according to the time table for the next day. They respond in the positive manner and delay the act. When you do not remind them deliberately and see what they do you find that the day has finished, they are tired and now they have gone to sleep. You put their books in the bag. You see if their pencil box is equipped with all…

When I too pass away...

Image
When my childhood was gone, I missed its innocence.
When my schooldays were gone, I missed the freshness of those days. 
When my days with my parents were over, I missed the days of gratifying attention and affection in the air. 
When my parents passed away, I lost the best opportunity to gain Paradise. 
When the days pass on, I miss each day, I lose each day...or gain something from it, to have with me. To take something from all my past days to cherish. To take along with me something even when I too pass away!

Islam is beautiful!

Image
There are many reasons to the tarnished and blemished image of Islam. This is well known and needs no further discussion.  The thing is why any faith would be misunderstood or tarnished in the first place?  The answer is the people who do not approve of the teachings do so. I am here not talking of Islam alone. You can take any religion for that matter. There have been enemies of Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism and other religions too. The point here is, who would come up against any religion so far as tarnishing it or spoiling its image. Not to be surprised by the fact that even the followers of that same religion do this themselves, whether deliberately or out of lack of knowledge.

The modern man of today thinks that he is born to live freely. He should not be told to this or that. He should be doing what he likes. He should be left free. No sanctions, no laws nothing. He should enjoy free speech, free expression, free sex, free education (what kind!), free chat, free games, free coke …

Personalities...differences!

Image
Sitting in the first class lounge of an International Airport, your legs stretched out on the sofa, your head resting on the cushion at the back with closed eyes, you wait for your next flight. Suddenly, your calm is shattered by somebody's loud talk on the phone. You are still in the same position but unable to feel the comfort. You can hear each an every word the person is uttering. He is talking emphatically to someone over some business matter. He occasionally shouts and uses some bad words too. It seems the matter is never going to end. You sit up straight and start reading some magazine. You take a look at that man. He is very well dressed, seemingly on a good position in a company. His talks also show how he thinks about himself as influential and authoritative. Now, as you read, a couple comes in next to your area just in front of you. They are in their fifties. They have grey hair, but look very graceful. The wife is wearing a cotton sari and the husband is in blue jeans a…

How 'Muslim' are we?!

Image
We are MuslimsAlhamdulillah but most of us do not realize that being a Muslim requires a nicely disciplined life. It is not made difficult for us rather easier for us to be 'true Muslims'. Our Lord, Allah does not want His creatures to be harsh on themselves. He asks them to simply follow the duties which He has revealed in the Quran through His last Messenger Muhammad(Peace be upon him). Let us first see what the words 'Islam' and 'Muslim' convey to us because these are the words which state our Faith and identity. Islam is a way of life in which there is total submission to Allah's will. This way of life has been shown to us in our Prophet's life (Peace be upon him). Allah has shown to us how we should live in this world and prepare for the Hereafter, through His messenger. Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was a human being like us and he followed whatever his Lord ordered him to do. He was indeed the most blessed human being. He showed us how a Muslim shoul…

The Bicycle of Life!

Image
Life is like a cycle. When it is new we do well even on rough roads and enjoy the bumpy rides! As it grows old, it gets punctures, scratches and dents. And then, a time comes when we sell it off or just dump it somewhere if its totally crushed!  The selling value of life does not decrease with the scratches it got...it is valuable until it is dumped away!
Nothing is worthless, not even an old bicycle. You can always get it repaired and use it or sell it away. But the thing is how you handle it all the time it was with you.  Some people love their cycles or bikes so much that they take every care to clean them and make them look good and be in a good working condition. 
I have seen people who are so touchy about their vehicles. And it pays them so well. The way they handle their vehicles; they get it back in good ways. The bike or any other vehicle when taken care of in a better manner gives a good service and stays with you longer. Same goes for life. Take good care of life. Do not ignore w…
