R I P Common Sense.....


Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:


- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

- Why the early bird gets the worm;

- Life isn't always fair;

- And maybe it was my fault.


Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).


His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.


Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.


It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.


Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.


Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.


Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.


Common Sense was preceded in death,

-by his parents, Truth and Trust,

-by his wife, Discretion,

-by his daughter, Responsibility,

-and by his son, Reason.


He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers; 

- I Know My Rights

- I Want It Now

- Someone Else Is To Blame

- I'm A Victim

- Pay me for Doing Nothing


Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

25 RULES OF BEING CLOSE TO ALLAH (SWT)



1.  Start off each day with 'adhkaar al-istiyqaadh' (waking up Supplications), thanking Allah for waking up in good shape.


 2.  Put Allah first in your life.


 3.  Broaden your horizons - learn 5 new verses from the Quran every day, travel to pray far in the mosque to brighten your day,take up a booklet having supplications and read them.


 4.  Pray Salaat Al-dhuhaa (after sunrise).


 5.  If someone says something mean  ;to you, just shrug it off and dismiss it in a friendly, laid back manner, and pray that Allah shall forgive them.


 6.  When you get angry, remember Allah, and how short and worthless life is to waste in being Angry.


 7.  Remember that you can never have too many friends, but you can have few quality friends that help you fulfill the purpose of your creation (i.e. live for Allah).


 8.  When you're happy, try to share your happiness with others. Thank Allah for that, and pray its continuation.


 9.  When something bad or embarrassing happens to you, just think that it could always be worse, remember the reward of patience,and thank Allah that it's not worse than it is.


 10. Do something extra of goodness once in a while, like feeding a poor person, or caressing an orphan's head.


 11. Never stop believing that you can win Allah's love and thus work For it. Then you can win the love of Allah's slaves.


 12. Spend some time thinking of Allah's amazing creation.


 13. Always love those who love Allah unconditionally. This way you will ensure that you live for Him, love for Him, and hate for Him(those who are enemies of Him).


 14. Find the righteous ways to express yourself, and if you think that what you are about to say shall cause no benefit, maintain silence (this is tough!!).


 15. Every now and then, give yourself a break. Play sports, give time to your family, friends, but always remember Allah and watch that He is watching you.


 16. Pray for blessing to come to those being lost, and pray to Allah to guide them to the right path.


 17. Hug your parents, kiss their hands and heads and always obey but stop at Allah's orders.


 18. Smile to everyone, for your smile makes a big difference to him or her and you are rewarded.


 19. Forgive, forget and smile.


 20. Tears are not for women only... tears are for all human beings with feelings remaining in them. Don't restrain your tears when remembering Allah.


 21. When people criticize your actions and effort, revise your actions and see if they please Allah or no. If they do; then ignore and remember how the Prophet (SAAW) and the Sahaba were criticized, made fun of and even physically harmed, so have patience.


 22. Read the Quran daily and try to have a schedule for completing it as much as you could. As you open the Quran daily, read with observing not just passing your eyes through the words.


 23. Don't let popularity go to your head, for it never lasts and you may lose from it more than gain.


 24. Never look down on anybody, for, to Allah, they may be better than you.


 25. You can share this to all with the intention of having a healthy society living for Allah and pray.


Peace and blessings of Allah (set) be upon you all ) Allahu Akbar الله اكبر

When someone consistently uses the same weapon to hurt you, you can do one of two things. You can keep fighting back. This will only wear you out. And cover you in wounds.


Or you can take away the weapon. 


Through our attachments--to what people think of us, to the way we believe things *must* be, to idols of the heart, to the need for control--we chain ourselves. And we hand people the weapons they use to hurt us. 


Let go of your chains and stop handing people the knives they use to destroy you.
