Favourite Surah!!

This post might sound weird, but i was talking to a new "revert" to the islamic faith, and he was asking me: what is your favourite surah in the quran?

I with wide open eyes did not have an answer! so i tried to break away from the answer and said confidently : you cannot love one surah only, you have to love the whole book!

Thinking i was clever in my answer he said: duh, i know you have to love the entire book, but i mean personally, you gotta have a certain desire to read a specific surah, dont you?

I thought about it and i said : i actually donno which one is my fav.!

I asked him back and he said "mariam"

I thought : really, yeah it is actually a wonderful story of how Zakaria finds her with food in her room, i always was amazed by "jesus's" story anyway.

Went home, opened the holy quran, tried to read the index to see which surah do i actually like, and it hit me:

It is surat YOUSEF ; i love that surah, because i think i like his AMAZING story, i enjoy reading it over and over again, it is just awesome and i never get bored of it. of how he became the king of egypt and refused betraying his master, i love reading it cos it is exciting to read..
whoever knows arabic, would know how superb is the phrasing of that surah!!

Heat Wave

Heat Wave

Dear LORD, this heat wave hitting the UK is truly hotttttt..
Not only people have gone naked sunbathing outdoors, it is also preventing me from getting my sleep @ night "hence i am writing this now"..

I cant find words to describe the Sauna we are experiencing!!

So i really hate staying in my room now, therefore lesser time on the internet, and therefore no posts.

No matter what i do with this room it is still HOT. I open the window as WIDE as it can go, but i get more insects and flies than the much needed breeze!!!

A name of a movie that i made a special trip to see today, of course i did not regret it for a second.

As you might know already, i am interested in palestinian politics and i am a member of the PSC (palestinian solidarity campaign). The story was about one specific family and the events that they went through.

This movie is absolutley astonishing, fantastically honest and OF COURSE nerve wrecking! i did not cry (although i was prepared to) but i surely teared.

Obviously today i was the only arab in the theatre so i am the only one who did not read the subtitles ;), but i peaked @ them @ some points because i wanted to see how accurate is the translation of the dialogues.

The direction was done by MOHAMMED BAKRI but the production is purely italian.

Pls check online reviews for more details, it is one amazing piece of work.

Bits AnD Pieces AGAIN

Damn, it is sooo hard to tell someone that you dont love them!! specially if they fell in love with you in 1998!!

At the same time, it is true what they say, you always go for the wrong person, the heart is such an idiot muscle "sometimes", it can completely desire the wrong ones!!

If only my heart was able to love that person, i know he will treat me like a queen!! But NOOO, i go for the one who ............ is just not for me!!

I did not recieve flowers or chocolate in months!! DEEEEP SIGH

I wonder what my husband will be like, will he listen to me? will he care about me enough? will he (do) or (care to do) or (spend time to do) the things i like?

I believe in love before marriage strongly, but i dont know the signs of real love yet!!

I have been feeling like this for months now, specially that this is all what everyone (freinds and family) is talking about, marriage marriage marriage!!

I wish i never finished school,, i dont wanna grow up!! in fact a palm reader 3 years ago told me that my life is short,, (i do not believe her) but i really donno if i wanna live a long life..

I just realised that what i wrote sounds more like random bullet points, anyway it delivers what i want it to deliver..

He did have many complications health wise, and so everyone expected that his "dance with my father" hit is the last..
