Allah : The one and only God

Since Wednesday I started feeling angry and depressed, allot of things in my mind, I have been trying to control it, it just happened.

Today I was more irritated then ever, I snapped at my sister and hanged up the phone, my body was fuming with anger, I felt the heat raising from my skin, I remembered a saying, when you get angry or depressed go and perform Wudhuh, it worked and I cooled down, I felt totally different, I had internal peace Alhamdu Lillah, I thank God for that.

Now this came into me ‘Allah and the only one God’ and I remembered the following lyrics:
A is for Allah, nothing but Allah; Ba is the beginning of Bismillah; Ta is for Taqwa, bewaring of Allah;and Tha is for Thawab, a reward; Ja is for Janna, the Garden of Paradise; Ha is for Hajj, the blessed pilgrimage; Kha is for Khaatem, the seal of the prophethood given to the Prophet, Muhammed (SAW); Da is for Deen, Al-Islam, religion with Allah since time began; Dha is for dhikr, remembering Allah; And Ra is for the month of Ramadhan, ohh Ramadhan; Za is for Zakat to pure our greed, when we give our money to those in need; Sa is for Salamu alaikum, peace be with you wa'alaikum assalam; Sha is for shams, the shining sun, which Allah placed for everyone; And Sua is for salat, for when we pray facing him, everyday, facing him, till we meet our lord; Allah there's only one God and Muhammed is his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Dua is for duha, the morning light, the sun has turned from red to white; Tua is for tareeq, the path to walk upon; And Dhua is for dhil, a shadow; And Aa is for ilm, the thin g to know, to make our knowledge grow, in Islam; Gha is for ghaib, a world unseen and that we know is not a dream; Fa is for, the Opening, Al-Fatiha; And Qua for the Qur'an, the book of God; And Ka is for kalima, a word we're taught to teach us what is good and what is not;a Nd La is for the beginning of La ilaha illa'allah; Ma is for the Messenger Muhammed-ur-Rasoolillah. La ilaha illa'allah, Muhammed-ur-Rasulilllah; Allah, there's only one God and Muhammed is his Messenger. Allah, la ilaha illa'allah; Na is for nawm, the sleep God gave to give us rest after the day; Ha is for the Hijra, the journey that, the Prophet made; And Wa for wudu before we pray to help us wash our sins away; And Ya for Yawm-mid-Deen; Allah, there's only one God and Muhammed is his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and Jesus was his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and Moses was his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and Abraham was his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and Noah was his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and he created Adam, and we are the children of Adam. Allah,La ilaha illa'allah; Allah, there's only one God and Muhammed is his Messenger. Allah, La ilaha illa'allah.

I am here and not there

I am here and not there
I am seen and not head
I am who am I
Can I be defined as my self and not the shadow of evilness
I am smile but I am crying within me
I am in love with my self
I can’t get over the past
The past is dragging me to the pond of death
I rather live then be a zombie
I rather be a human then be a slave
I kiss the death before it kisses me
I say “farewell my love, I have a life to live. Life is worth more then sorrow and miscarry.””

Quotes & thoughts

Today I'll share some thoughts and Quotes that I liked and some I wrote, I hope you will like it.

We write what we fear the most of; we try to lash out our evilness in a mode of gestures, that if who we are negative. Writing reflects our inner feeling, fear trigger’s the worst. I admit I do writing negatively, about people who I despise and fear the most, after series of mental and emotional abuse by those people. I try to get over it by writing.
- My comment posted at osama.ae

"اللسان الطويل دلالة على اليد القصير"
-Translation*: “The long tongue reflects that the hand is too short.” it means, when a person yells and raises his voice to others rudely, it’s an indication that the person lack of something.

* Note: it is not the accurate translation.

Anger started to consume me, I can’t believe it is happening to me. I tried to control my anger, they realised it and started to cool me down. Now I am angry to my self, for lashing off my dark side, the side I hate the most. I have to apologise for my action to those I didn’t intend to hurt.

Changes in lives

The month of June was pretty active month for me and other people surrounding me (in my circle of life) career and social life.

On first Thursday of the month, my cousin have finally got married and he is back from his honeymoon happy with his new wife; she seems nice and we (the family) are happy for him as we see that she makes him laugh and became a cheerful person.

The family gathering went well, had allot of fun.

At work allot of pleasant and sad news, some of my brilliant co-workers are moving out of the department either moving internally or externally. The internally changing their career path and the externally moving for better post. I’ll really miss them.

Four of my co-workers have finally passed their final exams. One earned his professional certification; two earned their college degree; and the last one earned 11 grade certification. Best wishes for them.

Now my co-workers and I busy preparing for Certified Internal Auditor Certification (CIA) Exams. Wish us all the best.

Now I am going to watch an Arabic movie; just to please my cousin by giving her company and at the same time relaxation for me to get my head-off study.

The story about employee 'S'

حكاية الموظف سين
يكتبها ‎: هدي الجهوري
الموظف سين يعمل في إحدى الدوائر الحكومية، ويسعى دائما لأن يكون مخلصا ومتفانيا في العمل وهو شاب طموح يحاول أن يقدم نفسه كنموذج متميز في العمل، ولصاحبنا الموظف سين زميل آخر يعمل معه في نفس المكتب ‎.. دعنا نقول انه الموظف عين وهو على النقيض تماما يميل إلى قضاء ساعات العمل في الأحاديث المجانية، والتنقل من مكتب إلى آخر، لتبادل ‎«السوالف عن فلان وعلان‎» كما أنه أضاف مؤخرا إلى قائمة أحاديثه الكلام عن الأسعار والاسمنت والعيش‎.
رئيس العمل يعرف جيدا أن الموظف سين ينجز مهماته على أكمل وجه لذا كان يثقل عليه بالالتزامات اليومية، وينأى عن الموظف عين لأنه لا يتقن أداء المهمات الموكلة إليه ‎... عندما يفرح المسؤول كان فرحه يعم على الجميع، وعندما يستشيط غضبا كان غضبه يقع على الموظف سين الذي يبتلع ريقه على مضض‎.
ذات يوم سأل الموظف سين مسؤوله‎: لماذا لا تفعل شيئا إزاء كسل زميلي المتفاقم ؟ فربت المسؤول على كتفه قائلا‎: دعك منه، صدقني سيبقى في مكانه للأبد، بينما أنت سترتقي وستتطور، وسيصبح لك مستقبل باهر، قفز قلب الموظف سين من مكانه من شدة الفرح، وحلق عاليا بتلك الكلمات الجميلة‎.
ولكن المفاجأة غير السارة أنه وفي نهاية السنة حصل الموظف سين، والموظف عين على ذات المكافأة ، وبعد عدة سنوات من عمل سين، وكسل عين حصلا معا على ذات الترقية، وكلما جاءت فرصة للسفر للخارج كانت تذهب لصالح الموظف عين، وعندما كانت الأسئلة ترن في رأس سين كانت الإجابة تصله وشيكة من المسؤول‎: لا تقلق ‎... إنها محاولة لطرد كسل الموظف عين وخموله‎..
يذهب عين ولا يعود إلا بالحكايات والصور والهدايا، يأتي فارغا تماما، دون أن ينجز أي شيء لصالح العمل، وجراء ذلك لا يحصل سوى على بضع إنذارات سرعان ما تذهب أدراج الرياح، فالإنذارات لا تخيفه لأنها لا تطال راتبه الشهري، وترقياته‎.
كلما حاول الموظف سين أن يشذ عن القاعدة العامة وأن يبدو مختلفا ومحبا لعمله ومتفانيا في رغبته بتغيير السائد كلما صدم بالنماذج الأخرى التي تشكل ربما الأغلبية والتي لا يعني لها العمل أكثر من وسيلة للعيش‎.لفترة ليست بالبعيدة كان الموظف سين النكتة التي يعلكها الجميع، ففي الوقت الذي كانت طموحاته تكبر كان لا يناله أكثر من الدوران في منطقة الصفر، بينما الآخرون كانوا يصعدون السلم الوظيفي بسرعة، بعد عدة سنوات لم يعد باستطاعة أحد منا أن يميز الموظف سين لأنه اختلط مع الآخرين وتشابه معهم، وركل مثاليته وإخلاصه في أول سلة مهملات صادفها‎.
