You had to leave

Classes started a couple of days ago. Summer is gone and I am sad about that! Ramadan and Eid flew by…Note: when time flies, you know Judgement Day is near. My siblings are growing up so fast. They are all leaving for college and will be busy with new schedules. Now me and my baby-14-year-old-brother will see eachother’s faces without interruption. I am fine with that but he finds me quite annoying haha [no worries, kido…we both have school in the day].

I AM SO SAD. I guess we all just have to realize that the moments we have right now are the most precious and we should make the best of them. I did say I was going to expose my summer doings [sounds sinful huh] when it ends…although I was not prepared to do it so soon. Oh well. Lets read the list:

1- I did not learn to drive. FAIL

2- I learned to bake! Well, it was more like following instructions from online recipes lol.

3- I helped plant stuff…which grew into eggplants, cucumbers, flowers, peas, spinach, mint, and basil. God’s blessings.

We also had our own ‘manual’ bbq. Delish!

4- Ramadan happened and I loved it.

5- ‘Met’ some interesting people on twitter and wordpress. Great learning experience.

6- I got a new phone. Unexpected. Bad timing, because I just got it a couple of days ago and its extending my summer mentality [this is bad since classes this semester are already so rough].

7- I started making video diaries for my siblings who would miss out on our daily boring lives at home. This has nothing to do with what happened to me during the summer, but who cares [also, it doesnt make sense ’cause the house is not as full as it used to be since its mainly the parents, me and the young’in [LOL at the word ‘young’in]].

I probably did more things, but cant think of them. Dang it, I have class in the mornings…its 2 am and I am still awake eating Eggos. Yea, this post is full of nonsensical events. I am done.

#Truthis Ya’ll are just ignorant, son.

Sorry for the tempting who-ever-talks-like-this blog post title. Hash-tagging, or number signs in front of words without spaces, should be limited to twitter/tweets. The word ‘Ya’ll’ should never be used out side of the southern deserted areas, and is unacceptable within my hearing range. However, calling people ‘son’ is ok [LOL]. Moving on, I have actually heard many statements, questions, and sayings that are just dumb. People have to open up books or the internet and try to learn stuff, like why certain people do certain things…Yea, I am talking about the ignorant people who come in contact with Islam in some way or another.

Ignorance is not bliss. Its laziness, dumb, embarrassing, and you’re not being an active learner while living the life you were given. Life is not all fun and games…there are things  you have to look into. You were given a brain, so use it. Hmmm, there has to be a way not to sound as harsh as I do right now. Anyway, I have heard or saw people using such statements/words/questions concerning Islam without thinking:

1- “That thing is so pretty on you, but it must be very hard for your women.”: Its called a “Hijab” and is worn to protect the female’s beauty and modesty because in Islam, females are pearls that should be hidden and not be shown to the world so random people can drool over her [directing people with dirty minds]. Its a form of protection God has told females to hold for their own benefit. This way she can display her thoughts, ideas and actions before her beauty. Its an honor. Its not hard…its not oppression lol. I don’t understand how ‘liberation’ or ‘modernism’ is to take off all your clothes, & roam around half naked in front of everyone…then shouldn’t naked animals be the most advanced species? Some people just don’t get it. The point was, women in Islam are supposed to cover themselves (as did Mary (May God be pleased with her), mother of Jesus (May God be pleased with Him) and all the other modest women in history) so that they are liberated from the social pressures around them. DUH.

2- “That terrorist.”: terrorist – a radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities. And the Arabic word salaam (سلام) (“peace”) has the same root as the word Islam., meaning submission to the One God. Total opposites; enough said. In Islam a person cannot take another’s life, let alone their own. Only God gives life and gives death.

3- “How can you believe in a God that discourages homosexuality?”: Warning, I know this may be a sensitive topic to some as displayed by society now-a-days, but I just have to say this. Its not real, or humane. Just cause society/media/fashion industry/celebs encourage such things, it doesn’t make them right…think about it logically. Even in a scientific sense, why would evolution turn to a point where it would just randomly make up a few kinks and stop its own process. Don’t attack me just yet, first watch this VIDEO. I know many of you have already made up your mind before you might click the video link…its whatever, if you want to remain in ignorance. Btw, you not supposed hate or dislike any type of people; people are people, you can’t not like them for their way of living life, Islam doesn’t teach that. I was talking about the act, not people.

4- “Why would you want to live your life following a certain way of life, when you can make up your own.”: And you are also arrogant and selfish. First, think about who gave you this life so you can live it…stop using it as your ‘own’, cause its not yours. You were put on this earth, given such favors for a reason. If someone were to give you something and you had to return it to them at the end, wouldn’t you treat that ‘borrowed’ possession as how they told you to?

Hopefully, everyone here still likes me LOLOL [now please follow me on twitter] . If you don’t, then i guess you don’t…its ok.

P.S. Ramadan ended a few days ago and Eid was awesome!

I made this vanilla cake with peanut butter icing for Eid! It was really tasty.

EID Mubarak to all you people celebrating it!!!! Hope you all had a great one…And to the general public, Happy-end-of-summer-2012! Hopefully we all utilized our summer the best way we could have, be it relaxing, learning and experiencing knew things, working, etc…I can’t wait to read what everyone did this summer. Peace out.
