Hi, my name is Muhammad and I am from Alexandria, Egypt. I was not proud to be an Egyptian, but since the beginning of the 2011 Egyptian revolution, I can say that I am an Egyptian with pride, honor and greatness! Thank you so much to all the revolutionaries, freedom fighters, and conscious thinkers in society! God bless all the martyrs who gave their lives for freedom, justice, dignity and reform!
I try my best to be a good person and be the best I can be. I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a very simple and ordinary person, who try to be optimistic and positive as possible in this cruel world, and hope for the best. I will always stay true to myself, and to who I am and to what I believe in, and do what I feel is right. I would rather be hated for who I am, than to be loved for who I am not.
I am a very down-to-earth person with big dreams. My motto in life has always been, to live simple and appreciate the small things in life. I love to laugh and have fun, because life's too short to be anything but happy! I love to enjoy life to the fullest, and would always try and do things I've never had the opportunity to do before. I like diversity and being open-minded to a lot of things and seeing other cultures, traditions and lifestyles.
I think the world needs more open-minded people and more global citizens. Being open-minded doesn't mean accepting any idea, it means to listen and understand and give it a fair chance and carefully consider it and evaluate it, before you accept it or reject it. Being open-minded doesn't mean accepting everything everyone says, it means asking questions or doing your research instead of rejecting things out of hand, and then deciding whether or not you believe it.
I don't like ARGUING at all, because it shows a lack of maturity and usually is never productive, just a waste of time. Arguing is POINTLESS and I absolutely hate it! I don't like talking too much about POLITICS and RELIGION, because it often causes problems, conflicts, and misunderstandings. I RESPECT others beliefs, opinions and feelings, and I believe we all have our own unique contribution to make, to improve the world in some way. We all contribute something to the world, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem.
I adore BEAUTY in all forms, I love beauty in everything; in nature, people, words and actions, innovation and creativity, and in culture, such as food, festivals, arts (such as photography, design, fashion, painting, sculpture, architecture, music, dance, movies, etc). But most importantly to me, is the beauty of women! Hahaha!
I believe each person is beautiful and unique in their own way. I love how God put something beautiful inside every person, and it is amazing when you look for it and find it. No matter how we look at ourselves, there is no one else like us and there is no one else who could ever do what we are gifted to do in just the way we can do it. (Which is precisely why we have to be ourselves instead of being a cheap imitation of someone else!) Each person is beautiful, so they are free to be themselves and stop trying to be like someone else.
I believe life is a test from God and we all will be rewarded for our good deeds and likewise be punished for our evil doings. I believe He tests our faith, love, patience, obedience, integrity, and loyalty. I have learned that if you want to be succeed in the test of life, you should be thankful in good and bad times, and be patient during the difficult times.
Many things in our world, unfortunately, are completely out of our control; yet, the amount of energy that is spent worrying about those things makes no difference in the end. I believe everything in life happens for a reason, even if the lesson is unclear, it's still taught. I believe the more difficult and painful the lesson is, the more you learn from it. I believe the best lessons have the power to completely change our lives and move us entirely in a new direction. And when we begin to understand the reasons, we truly learn from the lessons offered to us. Each step forward is a step in faith. Whatever your spiritual belief may be, having faith that it is all okay and always will be okay is a practice that comes with patience and faith.
When you understand that life is a test from God, you realize that nothing is insignificant in your life. Even the smallest incident has significance for your character development. Every day is an important day, and every second is a growth opportunity to deepen your character, to demonstrate love, or to depend on God. Some tests seem overwhelming, while others you don't even notice. But all of them have eternal implications.
Everything in life, whether good or bad happens for a reason, and we may not understand why, but one day you will turn around and realize that it had to happen to get where you are. We meet people in our lives who introduce us to other people were supposed to meet and sometimes the people who introduced us aren't even in our lives anymore. Ever wonder why that is? We had to meet that one person so that we can meet the next person who is supposed to enter into our lives. I believe in that everything happens for a reason, even if sometimes we don't understand the reasons. Each path we take in life is a lesson learned, build on that lesson and figure out what it is you need to do so that you don't make the same mistake twice.
Sometimes life can be terrible, or tragic, or scary, or lonely, or sad. We all have bad days sometimes. But regardless of the current circumstances, it is important to remember that everything will be okay. While people enjoy the good and happy parts of their lives, we often learn more from the bad. Try to believe that everything in life happens for a reason, even if that reason is not immediately apparent. Believe in your capacity to learn from mistakes and bad experiences.
Just like academic exams that help us evaluate ourselves, we can know where we stand through God's tests. And when we are faithful He rewards us. But if we fail, we should realize where we are weak and grow in the grace of God and build up our most holy faith. Most times God tests us through the trials and tribulations we face in life. We may not realize it and we may be wondering why God is allowing certain things in our lives.
Poverty is a test for the poor and wealth is a test for the rich. To see if the poor remain patient and faithful to God despite poverty and to see if the rich remain thankful to God and spend on the poor out of the wealth that God has bestowed upon them and seek God's pleasure or they use their wealth to serve their evil means and oppress the poor. Poor are always pass in the test of due charity because they lack the wealth to pay the due charity, while the rich can only pass this test by paying the due charity or otherwise they would fail and would be punished for it on the day of Judgement. So we can see that God gifted wealth if mishandled can be serious disadvantage.
Even good health is a test to see if the health person uses his good health for the good fellow human beings and benefits them and his soul or uses his good health only to serve his evil instincts to fulfill his personal evil means. On the day of judgement he would be held accountable as to how he used his good health.
Since both evil doers and righteous suffer from natural calamities, for the evil doers it is a punishment, whereas for the righteous it is a test of their faith.
As God (Allah) says in the Qur'an in Surat Al-Baqarah, Chapter 2, Verses 155-156:
"And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return."
I know some people will not agree with that, because they don't believe in the existence of God. And they may say that "Hypothetically speaking, if God did exist, he wouldn't need a test because he is all-knowing." God has eternal knowledge. But if God judges between the faithful and unfaithful without testing them, the faithful would pass and be pleased, but the unfaithful, who fail, would argue that at least they should have been given a chance to prove themselves. So this life is a test for the hereafter. Judgement will be based upon the difficulty of the test.
As Qur'an says in Surat Al Imran, Chapter 3, Verses 185-186:
''Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion. You will surely be tested in your possessions and in yourselves. And you will surely hear from those who were given the Scripture before you and from those who associate others with Allah much abuse. But if you are patient and fear Allah - indeed, that is of the matters [worthy] of determination.''
Politically, I am a green (environmentalist), social liberal, socialist (economically), democrat, progressive and conservative at the same time!
I am pro-Palestine and anti-Israel, but I am NOT against Jews or Judaism. I don't hate Jews, I hate Zionism and Zionists, whatever their religion or race! There is no Israel, there is only occupied Palestine! If you hate Adolf Hitler, then you should also hate Israel! If you hate Nazism, then you should also hate Zionism! As a human being and a Muslim, I am against social injustice, racial and religious discrimination and I hate extremism and terrorism of any kind.
Osama bin Laden = George W. Bush
Both are the same to me, both are TERRORISTS!
