The tinkling ice in the tilted glass questioned
Moslem? And you drink?
A little grin escaped my flabbergasted lips
I had to go back in memory

The days of the so called subjective purity
To the deity
The days of submissive obedience
Prudence to any fatal punishment

FEAR and Reward
The minute the corpse is put to ground
Mechanized with afterlife evils
Not the eminent pleasures of the Reward

Perfection, is what I sought
Yet I could never be perfectly
Doubtless of my imperfections
I had to give more

Yet, I couldn’t give more
Exhaustion to believe the unbelievable
Blindfolded, ensued my endless prayers for forgiveness
But I couldn’t stay blinded; after all I’m His creation

Mood of today; Gogoosh

    إشكالية العبد الذي يشهد أن لا إله إلا الله و يقيم الصلاة ويؤتي الزكاة ويصوم رمضان ويحج البيت وبعدها لا يعرف إن كان مصيره جنات النعيم إشكالية خطيرة
    سوء الظن في الرب عند بعض المتشددين هو أسوأ أنواع سوء الظن على الإطلاق

    أحبك أيا..والله كما هو في عمق إيماني بالتأكيد يحب روحك النقية

    Thanks sweet mini and enjoy your drink while you can, because
    الغضب الساطع ات و انا كلي ايمان
    I hope I did not mess up with my Arabic, don’t laugh ;p
    The problem with religion is that it’s a totalitarism, and the more you go into details, the harder life becomes ( been there, done that). If God wanted us perfect, why didn’t he create perfection in us, like angels? If God didn’t want us to doubt, why did he create brains? If God didn’t want us to get buzzed, then why drinks give us this feeling? And why wine should be an incentive in heavens if it is forbidden on earth. Some say heaven’s wine does not make you drunk !!!then what is the use of rivers of grape juice? Personally; I neither like grapes nor its juice if it doesn’t give me a buzz. There are so many answered questions, no one more than Moslems can twist and turn the argument, in lengthy boring details to waver your questions. And the answer is always; a masterpiece thesis of garbage.
    And I don’t have to tell you how much I missed you, do I :*

    Islam answered a lot of my questions, one day I was a true student of faith, honest in my peruse. With open heart and mind, and an appetite to learn, but that was my mistake, I should have blindfolded my mind because Islam didn’t give me the right answers, and my mind couldn’t take any more.

    Moslem? And you drink?
    If I get a penny every time I’m asked this question. Even when I chose to live in Europe, still the same shit applies.
    Even when you run far away from everyone, you will always be haunted by the same question.

    Well said

    I went through the same phases and experiences. The problem, in my opinion, lies in the “absolute truth” myth. Submission to the “absolute truth” leads to frustration, dissatisfaction and inconsistency for perfectionism is impossible.

    وأنا في بدايات سن المراهقة كان أصحابي يلجؤن لي للفتاوي الخفيفة مثل “هل يجوز أصلي وانا منزل إيدي” … “هل يجوز أنام على جنبي اليسار” … “هل يجوز أسمع أغاني في رمضان” … “هل يجوز أطول في النظرة الأولى للبنت”… “هل يجوز أسلم على غير المسلم” … وغيرها من الأسئلة السخيفة

    في أواخر مراهقتي … في بداية المرحلة الجامعية … كان الشباب يتجمعون حولي لمناقشة قضايا الدين وعظمة الإسلام

    بعد سن المراهقة إكتشفت إن ما عندي سالفة … الحمد لله على هلإكتشاف المنقذ

    هل كان لازم أتعمق في الدين علشان أكتشف هالشيء … يمكن

    I guess you are right; without going into details, one can never see the truth, even if that was his truth.

    I bet, like me, you are one of her fans. And I always have special moods for her.

    And I loved your elegant comment, thanks

    It is just like awakening after being in a trance for a very long time.

    One must understand why one believes, and not believe just because another says you must.
