Note to a friend!

S! you are one amazing, beautiful strong very strong very strong person! But darling, don't let that strength be the reason for anyone to exploit u. You are still a girl and u ought to be one. don't let people turn u into something u don't in ur heart want to be. It's okay to cry its okay to curse:) it's okay to scream in pain and let everyone around u who love u know that cuz they have no right to be around u if they can't; when they claim they are family they are friend... they have no right to call themselves that if they are not willing to love u completely totally selflessly! Don't give up on any of ur dreams desires wishes. You know what's with faith... it lies with you and where u place it. if u will place it in a flower it will grow there... if u place it in God it will grow there.... When u have it, it would never fail u....But the day u will doubt it, it will die.. so its life is in ur hand, in our hands... don't let anyone kill it just cuz they cant see what u see for yourself working. I don't say don't hear others opinions but don't hear others doubts and act on them. Their doubts should never be ur belief, even if it's our own parents. Let them share with you beliefs, not their doubts. It seems every one of us has a long list of doubts and not even a handful of faith.

Remember this when you remember me!

So I took this quote a little too seriously! And thought I will not let my voice die in oblivion!


And when you remember me remember this and nothing else... cuz probably there is nothing else to me. :)

This is what I learned doing from the time I believe I got my senses.... This is what I did when life got impossible and this is where I found my refuge every time things got unbearable!

I have lived an amazing life. I remember every bit of it distinctly cuz I have lived it breathed it, tasted it, endured it...

Even the pains were not pains... they were the life they mattered they taught me things about me I didn't know before. Made me proud of me and of course I will never have those moments again... they are etched in me like scars and stars that they were.

And this journey was and will be my favorite... Cuz I get to spend it with some of the most amazing humans... My maula for starters... to have the privilege to have seen him, known him, loved him and loved him well with purest of intentions with every heartbeat and those who came for a moment or two but left a mark.... in shape of heartbreak,a tear or even a scream... they all in that moment gave me everything I needed I had desired and hoped and wished for...

I was asked once who do you think you want to be like... and I told him like no one else... I want to be like me I hope me to be... Never in my life I envied anyone for what they had... if you would know what I want and get it... you will understand why.... But my best and worst moments each one of them has given me memories and shown me the reality of people in a good way. If I had not lived this intensely I probably would not have found my existence worthy...

To all those intense souls worldwide you guys give this world its soul! without your life would be lifeless really!

What people don't know about Iraq!

My fascination for this country is spiritual. It is the land of my beloved Imam, who was martyred brutally along with his family on the soils of Kerbala. 
But Iraq as a country has been a taboo for many. With USA trying to control and occupy the land to further its own interests, and the rest looking at its barren landscape, with poverty-stricken people and kids having the bare minimum to survive, you have to be able to go beyond that ugly face that you see to learn what this country has been all about. 
"Kerbala" is a word made with conjoining two words literally: Karb and Bala, pain and perils. Who gave this land this word? Who names a land really? In the case of America, it was Christopher Columbus. But in the case of Kerbala, it was no human who named it after accidently discovering it. The name for this land had come the very moment this land was conceived and born.
And that is the real reason for this country and city to be. 
The city if you look deeply is a trailer of the reality of this world.  I am not someone who isn't ready and invested in working for the construction of this world and for its sustenance and growth. But as a person of faith, I know this world was conceived with an expiry date. What's once beautiful full of life like me and you, will one day become lifeless and turned into dust. The land thus serves as a reminder to always remember it is not worth trying to live forever, succeed forever and gather forever. Because this world has no forever.
But as the people continue despising this land, fearing for it to be a zone of danger to humanity, the more this city and its terror will continue affecting the world negatively.
I would urge anyone who wants to experience the truth for their own self to visit this land. Let its streets and monuments and history help you reinvent yourself in a more holistic way. 
Everything in our world is connected to every other thing. If you try to harm one thing, it's impossible to keep the rest of the things unharmed. So those who think they can grow in isolation, no one is more blind in their heads, heart, and minds, than them to think that it is a possibility even for a second let alone the eternity they are hoping to remain in this world.
Before hating anything about this world or anyone, take the time to understand and know what makes them that. And before trying to destroy a nation a country, know that it's a law of nature : "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction".
