Lending A Hand, A Shoulder To Lean On, Act Of Kindness, Does Not And Should Not Require A Payment.

(Paying It Forward, Does Not Include A  Price)

This is the part were we practice being humble and having humility. When we do something nice for others we should not think we deserve something back from others. Sometimes we all tend to think we deserve in return, and if that’s the case we should have not done that nice favor for someone. We need to practice on these traits. We do the things from our heart a act of kindness.

Mysterious Muslims

This, too, shall pass


There are mysterious Muslims on our island.

I live on a tiny island in the Caribbean Sea called Trinidad and Tobago. I live on the island of Trinidad. Muslims make up approximately 20% of a population of 1.5 million people. To many on our island, the Muslim population is mysterious and we are not well understood.

It is generally thought that we have two groups of Muslims here; the gangsters who are predominantly of African descent who usually have weapons and are considered criminals, the docile bunch who look and behave like everyone else and wear hijabs when going to the masjid.

People are slowly beginning to realize that there is a third group of Muslims who wear hijabs and jubbas; work, study, prayer and invite persons to Islam.

I belong to this last group. It is my view that the best dawaah is the one where persons learn…

Stop .. and listen

How many times have you listened to someone vent and already had your response in your head even as they were speaking? 

I have had this happen numerous times to me and have been the culprit as well. Many times we just don’t listen, really listen, to what that person is saying to us. Not every statement warrants a response. So often, when conversing, we listen to respond.

I am an opinionated person who more often than not speaks my mind, but I have learned that, at times, I just need to shut up. 

Biting my tongue is not always easy but it needs to be practiced too. My opinion is not the end all and how I approach things is also not the only answer.

I have been on both sides of this. There are times I just need to let it out and I don’t want an opinion. I know that not every decision I make on this earth is the smartest or best decision, but until you feel what I have felt, you have to just try to understand and vice versa. Of course, some things are indefensible, and they warrant a tough response, I understand that too. People, including myself, also go into protective mode with those we love and say what we think the person wants to hear. But we need to realize that that may not always be the case and we might be giving an opinion on what we would do, how we feel. It’s always easier to be an armchair quarterback, isn’t it? You may be thinking I wouldn’t have done it that way or how could you let this happen to you or the most popular one, what were you thinking?  Questions I have most likely already asked myself anyway. But what if we just stop for a second and think a little before we rebut?
