Power of Love …


Reason is powerless …
In the expression of Love…

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around…

Truth After All Can Never Die!


The tyrant is nothing but a slave turned inside out. When a valiant soul seems to stand against the world; when the noblest motives are reviled and mocked; when truth seems to suffer an eclipse, the martyr’s whisper comes: “Truth after all can never die.”

“Tolerance is man’s ornament , keeping promises is a sign of nobility , and bonding with others is a grace.”Imam Hossein

“To me , death is nothing but happiness, and living under tyrants nothing but living in a hell.” Imam Hossein

Hossein brave stand was taken against oppression and dictatorship. When evil and injustice threatened to ruin society, he and his family and his true friends, fought for human rights, freedom and justice for all!

Imam Hossein said:” Death with dignity is better than life with humiliation.” He was the grandson and successor of prophet Mohammad(s). He was mercilessly martyred along with 72 others comprising of his family members including his 6 month old son as well as his companions after being denied access to water for 3 days. He said: “I swear by God, I shall not surrender as a humiliated person and shall not escape like slaves.”

Shia Muslims commemorate this tragic event every year. Although Hossein and his companions lost the physical battle, they ensured victory for truth, morality and selflessness. Mahatma Gandhi said: “I learned from Hussein how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”

We remember him not just for his sacrifice but for the cause:

  • Justice is not to be compromised at all levels. No matter where we live, what we do, at work,  at home, or at street, we will never tolerate injustice.

 

  • Freedom is an absolute right not to be taken from anyone. No manmade authority has the right to make people slaves. God created people as equals with free will, and none can deny them this.

 

  • No justification of wrong in the name of the religion. God sent messengers to guide people to what is best. Truth and happiness is what religion holds for people. To use it as a justification for one’s own interests and agenda is never to be accepted. 
“Your neighbours are like your relatives.Telling the truth brings about honor. People’s secrets are properties held in trust with you.” Imam Hossein

So every year on Ashoura we mourn the tragedy of Karbala, and the stand for all that was right against all that was evil.

We should stand together and do not allow extremists to use religion to justify their unkind crimes!

We should stand together so that one day we may have a world where justice and peace reign for all people.

Hossein represented authentic Islam, a way of life based on community, love of one’s neighbors, peaceful co-existence with people of different believes, social justice and equality for all regardless of race or religion.

I Dream of a Better World


I Dream of a Better World,

Where, people are equal!

A world with no king, no queen, no boss of all people!

 

A world where all children are safe and happy,

With no fear of abuse,

With no fear of starvation,

With no fear of cruelty!

A world of pain free!

 

A world when people can feel, they can be themselves!

A world where people have respect of each other!

A world where each person can truly respect themselves!

A world where each person is truly fortunate!

 

Where hatred has no place!

Where prejudice and discrimination means nothing!

Where no one won’t be torture, executed for what they believe!

A world with no nuclear bombs, no gunpowder, no artillery!

 

A world full of nobility!

A world full of compassion!

A world full of humanity!

A world full of peace!

 

A world where we all can respect the earth!

Punishment Of Flying Dove Is Not Gun!

We were born with potential
We were born with goodness and trust
We were born with ideals and dreams
We were born with greatness
We were born with wings
We are not meant for crawling
We have wings
Learn to use them and fly

Tolerance


Flo14wer-Tolerance1

Tolerance, kindness and dignity have a unique place among moral principles. When tolerance is gone, there’s always force and violence, not to mention ashes always fly back into the face of him who throws them to some one else!

Just imagine a world, full of people with same opinion, how dull that world would be! The price of the democratic way of life is a growing appreciation of people’s differences, not merely as tolerable, but as the essence of a rich and rewarding human experience.
