[Music] Healing ~

Dear readers - Dear Me,

I present to you the new single by Sami Yousef from his new album "Wherever You Are". It's irony and yet amazing that I can so much relate it to what am going through these days...Perfect timing I guess. Anyhow, the lyrics and the music video are just so deep and touching that they teared me up. Enjoy :)


It’s so hard to explain

What I’m feeling
But I guess it’s ok
Cause I’ll keep believing :)
There’s something deep inside
Something that’s calling
It’s calling you and I
It’s taking us up high

Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A smile can change a life let’s start believing
And feeling, let’s start healing

Heal and you will be healed
Break every border
Give and you will receive
It’s Nature’s order
There is a hidden force
Pulling us closer
It’s pulling you and I
It’s pulling us up high
Healing, a simple act of kindness brings such meaning
A Smile can change a life let’s start believing
And feeling, let’s start healing

Hearts in the hand of another heart and in God’s hand are all hearts
An eye takes care of another eye and from God’s eye nothing hides
Seek only to give and you’ll receive
So, heal and you will be healed

Till Next Time <3

The new Zain Ad...

أكبر من حزني ومن فرحتي...

أكبر من ضعفي ومن قوتي...

أكبر من شوقي ومن لهفتي...

Not a very random post

أشياء تطاردها
وأخرى تمسك بتلابيب ذاكرتك
أشياء تلقي عليك السلام
وأخرى تدير لك ظهرها
أشياء تودّ لو قتلتها
لكنّك كلّما صادفتها
أردتك قتيلًا
"أحلام مستغانمي"

“Memory is a child walking along a seashore. You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away among its treasured things” - Pierce Harris, Atlanta Journal

شراب الحب يعرف بالمذاق
وما كل السقاة له بساقي
يعز علي ترك الحب عندي
ولو بلغت بي الروح التراقي
تركت جميع خلق الله دوني
شغلت عن الخلائق باشتياقيّ

"حمود الخضر - شراب الحب"


"إحسان" or "Philanthropy"
Only the day we understand this principle, and implement it in our lives, life would become a better place...

يتوق قلبي إلى وطني المؤجل

إلى فضيحة عارمة لكل الأوطان الكاذبة

Till next time~

Ramadan 2010

Dear readers – Dear Me,

(Pic by Design-Q8)

It's freaky how almost 12 months passed in the blink on an eye! Thursday, the 12th of Aug 2010 is going to be the first Day of Ramadan Insha'Allah in Oman. So Ramadan Mubarak ya’all and may Allah shower us all with his finest blessings, peace, forgiveness and mercy during this holy month.


After the ultimate success of fellow blogger : Bride from “Wanna be a bride” or “3ayza atgawiz” in publishing a book based on her blog, her story has recently been turned into a TV show that’s going to be aired during the days of Ramadan. I mean how cool is that! :D (That doesn’t mean that I’m going to watch it btw :p).

Anyhow, I can honestly say that it was really fun reading her book & her blog, so let’s see if the show is going to be as fun!

That's how Bride described herself in her blog:

أمثل 15 مليون بنت من سن 25 إلى سن 35 و اللي بيضغط عليهم المجتمع كل يوم عشان يتجوزوا..مع إنه مش بإيديهم إنهم لسه قاعدين


I’ve been receiving many emails about people making resolutions for Ramadan and some suggesting some schedules to be followed and what not… I think setting goals for what you want to achieve during Ramadan helps, even if it’s just the mere fact that one reflects on the month to come and recognizes that at least some changes should be made.
One recurring resolution I always make is to try and cut away from the ‘noise’ of the world in an attempt to really ‘hear’. And oh, I’m planning to eat healthier food & lay off the grease and desserts I constantly have specially during family gatherings :p

Till next time
وكل رمضان وانتوا بخير والله يبلغنا جميعا صوم رمضان وقيامه ومن بعده العيد

نقطة نظام

...دنيا عجيبة
احتار عقلي في أمرها...تدهشتني غربتها وتضحكني دموعا
يزيد التزام الشخص ويزيد عنده سوء الظن ويخول نفسه مسؤلا عن الحكم في نوايا الناس وأعمالهم...واحتقارهم كأنه ملاك منزل من
 السماء وغيره شياطين مطرودة من رحمة الله والناس
يخطئ المخطئ وينوي أن يعود...فتتقاذفه ألسنة الناس ويداس في التراب. ويتمادى الأهبل في استهباله ويستقبله الناس بالأحضان
الواسعة والحفاوة المطلقة
موظف خلوق أفنى شبابه وابيض شعر رأسه وهو مخلص لعمله... اكتشف "اللعب" في المناقصات في قسمه واقترح حلول أفضل
وأوفر واستقبل اقتراحه بالرفض...والطرد إلى اقصى وأنأى بقاع الأرض كعقاب لتدخله في شؤون "غيره" أعلم وأفهم بها
"قل كلمة..شيئا يسير...قلها فقد تحيي ضمير"
