Wake Up!

Learning to unlearn is no easy task. I should know – I was born into a Christian family and embraced Islam. But like everything else in life, beginning is always half done. The greatest truths are the simplest.

Are you courageous enough to let me burst your bubble?

If yes, then please watch the following clip. 

So near, yet, so far away…

That Awkward Moment

When you realize

Theologians-may-quarrel

“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another.
Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you.
Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.”

[Qur’an 49:13]

“Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].
Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.”
[Qur’an 2:3-5]

What’s Going On?

Transfixed Rabbits

We’re in the thick of the End Times – on the brink of the prophesied mega nuclear/biological war – Al-Malhama – Armageddon, prophesied by our learned forefathers across the world from every civilisation. The writing has been on the wall, literally, from the very beginning.

So now we’re here. Get real – wake up – this is the real shit happening right before your freaking eyes. But wait a minute… what are these blank faces I see…?

Why do people look so strange, yet vaguely familiar – like distant memories floating before my eyes? I stay indoors most of the time, but when I go to the market I go on an observation tour – to keep updated on what’s going on in the material world as I continue to live through mine and observe the events unfolding before my spiritual eyes.

14

The bile rises. People of the material world look like living reflections of my zombie past… Maasha Allah, I have no difficulty stripping them of their manicured facades to view beautiful souls trapped within egos suffering from ignorance and misguidance…

While the spectre of the inevitable Al-Malhama looms up on us… I see transfixed rabbits in denial, without a clue as to what is really going on or what should be done about it. Helpless. They all wear different masks. Oh, but they all know deep within  that something’s up…

There’s something off about these times…

This is the age of knowledge, where information is freely available at the press of a few buttons; yet…

24

What a mysterious paradox. How come?

People have been hardwired to reject the alien/stranger as something dangerous and harmful, due to the collective herd mentality programming. The masses have been brainwashed and conditioned to be selective about knowledge.

Mass Hypnotism

The Arrivals pt.2 (mind control feat. George Carlin)

Satan (Iblese) the manipulator knows the Power of Allah’s Speech, the Qur’an – so now they’ve introduced suggestions to burn it. But Allah’s promise is true. Of course Allah is protecting the Qur’an. It’s His Final Speech to Mankind and Jinn, He HAS to protect it.

 “To thee (Muhammad) We sent the scripture (Qur’an) in truth confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety.” (Qur’an 2:97)

Whilst Al-Malhama – Armageddon, rages, I perceive Allah Most High making His Speech gracefully ring forth louder and louder to crescendo, bugle included, so none can miss the attention to detail – until it drowns out all noise and everything ceases to exist…

That’s Allah blowing the fuse.

And in that ‘silence’ Allah poetically Speaks to Himself and answers His own question:  ‘Now, Who is The Lord of all the worlds?’ And Allah replies: ‘He is Allah and there is none worthy of worship but Him… and He Mercifully sent Messenger after Messenger to every corner of the earth to remind Mankind and Jinn about this vital matter of utmost importance.

If Allah Wills to purify gold, it is His to do or not do. Mine to go willingly, or unwillingly. Denial wont alter the basic fact that we are fallible beings dependent on the infallible.

Allah will then bring everything back into existence through His Mercy and all of creation will be raised to stand in answer before their Lord, about this tiny little small matter, which is in fact the mightiest matter – the difference between the Creator and creation. Judgement Day begins. It’s the perfect drama, as Shakespeare duly observed.

George Galloway: Dogs of War Slaver over Syria, Powder keg for Disaster

So what’s really going on?

Are we at the end of the world, or the end of history?

” …. And We have sent down to thee (O Muhammad) the Book (i.e., the Qur’an) which explains all things…”
(Qur’an 16:89)

The Return of Jesus Christ Superstar in Islam

THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR IN ISLAM.

file0001602209938

Those of you expecting to see – Here Comes the Sun: listen for background music http://youtu.be/ZCgoZ6wIvsQ – Jesus Christ Superstar (JCS) [Isa alaihissallam (AS)] – of ‘casting out demons’ fame – return with a bang in the latest fad – fully kitted up in bulletproof camouflage fatigues with an AK47 slung across his shoulders – as he takes on the superpower Anti-Christ [Dajjal], will be in for a slight shock…

Oh, he will be trendy alright – you can count on that! Tossing wet-look, long hair, bare-bodied with a two-piece saffron-dyed loincloth, he is scheduled to take a page out of the Buddha’s book, and destroy (yes – destroy) Dajjal in the most non-violent and peaceful manner possible – with his breath.

Yep, it will be his breath that does the trick.

Poof!

He will also proceed to break the cross and kill the pig. Wow – so Isa (AS) is going to be responsible for the extinction of pigs?

Oink-oink.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sanctimonious hip-and-happening environmentalists prepare your petitions in advance: I suggest you go for denying him and his two angel companions, visas to disembark on earth. It will be futile of course, but then, it’ll give you something to do and feel good about until his arrival… which will be, in sha Allah, definitely likely within the next five to 50-years.

The water level in the Sea of Galilee( http://www.this-is-galilee.com/water-shortage.html) is the hourglass to go by.  😉

Ahoy artists! Lest you be scorned as archaic and offside, change the colour of his loincloth from white to saffron – pronto!

Arrogant sectarian racists beware: you are going to look like a bunch of withered flowers for pigheadedly clinging onto your respective religions and philosophies as ‘superior’ – instead of accepting the Qur’aan as the Speech of Allah and embracing ALL of God’s (Allah’s) Prophets and Messengers and Scriptures (without distinction), and humbling yourselves in unity before the One True God – Allah – you have no god but Him.

They’ll say – what a fantastic yarn she spins! What is she… on…?

I’ll tell you.

All my facts are authentic and accurate. I just wove a picture out of the wool – instead of letting it cover my eyes…

What does a saffron-dyed loincloth, breath, and killing pigs have to do with JCS Isa (AS)?

Think, ponder and reflect…

Each Prophet had unique characteristic strengths. JCS Isa’ (AS) strongpoint was exorcism (ruqya) – casting out devils (shaiyateen) in the name of God (Allah). Dajjal, would no doubt, be host to a tremendous legion of demons. Prophet Muhammad (SAW), said, no man on earth – not even Umar ibn al Khattab radiallahu anhu (RA), the man from whom Shaitaan fled – could defeat Dajjal.

So my woven picture reveals: demons cast into the pigs and then the pigs are destroyed. Same gig he did 2000 years ago, except, this time, it’ll be on a much grander scale – hence his 2000-year meditation period in Paradise (Jannah)  where, in the presence of ALL the Prophets and Messengers of Allah, as well as Allah Most High Himself, he is being prepared for his awesome task.

Those of you who are beginning to catch on, yes, yes, yes – he will be non-violent and use RIGHT SPEECH! I leave the saffron-dyed loincloth for you to figure out.

No, he will not be a Buddhist Monk or a Hindu Acetic exclusively, stupid! He’ll be an exemplary Muslim (one who submits to Allah) – he will pray behind the Imam Mahdi in the Masjid. No, he will NOT be like any of the misguided Jonas running around, he’ll be an EXEMPLARY Muslim. Learn the difference. Be that difference. He will neither be exclusively Jew or Christian either, because, obviously, there was nothing called Christianity during his time. As for Judaism, well you all know how cross he was about the Rabbis playing around with the Revealed Scripture…

Of course, you are free to say: JCS Isa (AS) will NOT submit to the Will of God (Allah), will wear a rainbow-coloured polka-dotted loincloth, is exclusively yours, and the only way to cure racism in this world is to hand over the reins to BAD people (manic Bipolar Active Depressed extremists) and for everybody to become vegetarians or vegans or live on Mana (Prana) and starve out the Inuit and Bedouins – because animals are more important than humans, although some say humans are gods, but that’s another story – perhaps they’ll say we should resume worship of the calf, and pray to different deities, facing different directions and sit in different corners and eat separately – chewing on the manic notion that each is superior to the other, and na uudhzu billah (Allah forbid), God – the Giver of Life and Death – has no right to kill the Dajjal, pigs and shaiyateen, unless the UN permits it.

Bunkie Moon indeed!

Gumballs!

References to my tapestry are given below.

Please do your homework assignment without playing hooky, thank you.  

The objective is not to preach or spoon-feed you. Nor am I asking you to embrace Islam. The intention is to rekindle interest in spiritual matters… to urge you to look to your neighbour’s religion with fresh, open eyes and make a genuine effort to learn about it. Don’t leave one religion and jump to another and proclaim it to be superior. That would be same shit, different butt.

Of course, I put forward the Qur’aan and Islam, but only in the context that’s due to it. The Qur’aan IS the Final Revelation from God (Allah). It ties together EVERTHING from the past, tells you how to deal with the present and how to better the future.

As long as we stay divided, there will be no unity. As long as we try to unite on baseless grounds – for the sake of ‘showing the world’ that we are not racists, there will be no unity. It has to be on solid grounds in order for it to be sincere. But HOW, you may wail…

The Qur’aan highlights and instructs Mankind and Jinn on what the common thread of truth is in EACH of the religions of the past. It tells you WHAT to unite on – in order that you may retain your unique identity whilst still being one integrated unified body. It celebrates diversity.

Allah says in the glorious Qur’aan:

“O ye who believe! Let not a folk deride a folk who may be better than they (are), nor let women (deride) women who may be better than they are; neither defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. Bad is the name of lewdness after faith. And whoso turneth not in repentance, such are evil-doers.

O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion; for lo! some suspicion is a crime. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And keep your duty (to Allah). Lo! Allah is Relenting, Merciful.

O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.”  [Al Qur’aan 49:11]

The sickness that afflicts Mankind as a whole at the macro level is the same sickness that afflicts the individual at the micro level – Split Personality Disorder, Dementia and Bipolar Active Depression (BAD), and so forth. The Qur’aan is the healing cure for these ailments. Indeed, it is a Mercy from our Lord – it is the cure for racism.

If you don’t know how to meditate and calm the mind and get to the root of falsehood, go to the teachings of the Buddha. Need help with how to be patient and thankful through trials? Take the example of Ayub [Job] (AS). Want to know how to purify your faith? Why of course – study the life of Ibraheem [Abraham] (AS). Clueless how to be a just leader and statesman? Follow the example of Muhammad (SAW). Want to know how to start a peaceful revolution in which you rebuke the demons in wrongdoers and get nailed to the cross, but saved just in time – why who better than JCS [Isa (AS)]? And so on and so forth.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them.” [Matthew 5:17]

No, I am not a prophetess. I am just good ole nutty Sona, who is courageous enough to say what most are either dismally ignorant of, or mortally scared to make waves.

All praise and thanks to Allah for that which is correct.

All errors are mine.

Astaefirullah (I seek Allah’s forgiveness).

Wake Up Sri Lanka!
graveyard

Diplomatic Trade Nowadays

Human rights (HR) abuses against one minority can be written off with HR abuses against another – especially when the ‘other’ happens to be Muslim!

Don’t be mistaken – the slaughter of Sri Lankan Muslims WILL take place as scheduled.

It’s a shrewd manoeuvre to join hands with the US in its ‘war against Islam.’ How could the US possibly fault any government for doing as it does – attacking Islam and Muslims?

The question is, will Sri Lankan Muslims go to the sacrificial altar like docile, patriotic lambs – and die for the land of their birth? The first batch will, yes. They will die, because it will come upon them unexpectedly – like it did to the Tamils in 1983.

This time, the battle cry of the thugs will be ‘Gonibillo avilla’ – not ‘Koti avilla.’

The macho war-victorious Sri Lankan Army will then have to knock shoulders with the Mujahideen. The US and Zionists will graciously move in to help out, and Sri Lanka will become the long coveted strategic military base for the greater war – Armageddon, anyone?

And while no one is looking, Eelam will be finally established.

Underestimation of an exceptionally intelligent, yet proud and vindictive people is the downfall of the foolish. When you add insult to injury, instead of being just and fair and making amends, you fall into an inescapable karmic trap.

Doesn’t anyone read history these days?

The Hitlers of this world are the manipulated ‘blessings in disguise’ to those seeking ‘promised lands.’

The Arabs and Moors will, in keeping with their covenant to Allah, die as martyrs; whilst the fools will die as fools and those seeking earthly lands will inherit naught but a graveyard.

Cheers everybody!

Tribute to My Father


WiiWantCricket

The Man Who Set the Devil on Me and Made Me Find God

My Pater-boy W. A. (Brock) Barnes

My pater-boy W. A. (Brock) Barnes

Bismillah Hir Rahman Nir Raheem (In the name of God the Supremely Merciful, the Most Kind).

As I was becoming a woman, just prior to my ninth birthday, my father, W. A. (Brock) Barnes, informed me through word and deed, in no uncertain terms, that he was a complete failure and no example to follow. To offset this, he introduced me to Bruce Lee; his biography, philosophy and trailblazing excellent work as sensei, mentor and movie star. Dad said; ‘Listen to him – he’s a man. He knows what he’s talking about, and he walks his talk.’

Dad also taught me cricket – to bat, bowl, and field, and the philosophy of the game. He said if I applied the rules of cricket in life, I would not go wrong. Dad didn’t believe in God.

Bruce Lee my childhood hero – the dad I never had

Bruce Lee

Dad armed me with the most excellent armor known to him. I bear witness; he did his excellent best.

A female growing up with two brothers – six and seven years elder – is no small task. It was a typical democracy – the majority oppressed the minority. Life was tough. Rule of the jungle: survival of the fittest. But God is with the oppressed. I did more than survive – I found ingenious ways to live life to its fullest. I loved, as well as cried, deeply, and indeed, found Joy Inside My Tears. All praise to Allah.

But, a cornered lone animal, fighting for its life with its back against the wall, is far more ferocious and dangerous than those attacking it.

My dad told my brothers about me one day: “Don’t try to mess with her mind. She’ll give you a ‘Bruce Lee flying kick’ and you won’t know what happened to you.”

So dad set out to engrave it upon me – “NEVER strike until struck. But if struck, you know what Bruce Lee does, step up and do it – take it on the full and drive it over the bowler’s head – straight into the grandstand.”

Dad taught me an ’eye for an eye,’ and omitted ‘but it’s better to forgive.’ He left that for me to discover the hard way.

The sands of time never obliterated his relief work. Islam keeps it sheathed – like the Sword of Gryffindor – to be pulled out of the Hat only if absolutely necessary.

Grandma my childhood heroine – the mom I never had

My darling grandma
V.T. Asirwatham Sinniah

Parallel to Bruce Lee being my hero, my maternal grandma, V.T.  Sinniah, nee Asirwatham (Veema Thangamma Asirwatham), was my heroine – literally from the day I was born. My mother, Rani Sinniah (familytreemaker.genealogy.com) and I nearly died at my birth. She bled as my struggles wrapped the umbilical cord nine times around my neck. On the way to the hospital, dad had slammed the Morris Minor front seat against mom’s stomach – a last minute manic effort to kill me before I was born.

My grandma, a well-read, kind, calm, wise and collected soul of moderation and simplicity, with nerves of steel and defiant truth upon her tongue – was a believing woman of the Scripture. She endeavoured to read the Bible daily and meditate. Like Bruce Lee, she also walked her talk.

Grandma was guardian angel, mentor, and sage – the mother I never had. Mater used to grudge the bond between grandma and me.  May Allah guide my mother. I was an utter disappointment to her – an alien. I chose to include spiritualism in my life. The Middle Path: Balance. I was a Muslim without anyone’s knowledge – least of all mine – until Allah revealed it to me through His Speech in a book, when I entered my twenties.

My mother chose materialism and denied spiritualism. This is the great divide that’s nearer, rather than farther between us. I didn’t choose to go manic on spiritualism? I chose the Middle Path; moderation; balance.

My Mother Rani Barnes Sinniah

My mother Rani Barnes Sinniah

Some details of my life must remain concealed out of courtesy to my family, but suffice to say, the ongoing war between the two superpowers at home, mom and dad, led them to develop and unleash weapons of mass destruction and use their offspring as target practice, child soldiers, suicide bombers, spies, double agents, defence cover, hostages and so forth and so on, and sometimes, as agents of Trojan Horse peace too. The negatives always outweighed the positives in hideous proportions.

Brothers and parents

The happy family before my birth

Although my brothers entered family politics and destabilized the situation further, I shied away and scorned it with contempt. I became the voice in the wilderness – my eldest brother, Ravi, called me Zachariah. I’m not sure why.

The combination of Bruce Lee and grandma – honing natural tendencies – made me an independent entity; hard to contend with and near impossible to manipulate – a complete alien to politicians.

I was obstinate when it came to injustice and didn’t think twice to correct my brothers, parents, and certainly, even remind my darling grandma, when she fell into err. I applied the same rigid yardstick on myself and gave ear to correction without ever feeling small. Indeed, I felt big. I was attracted to what was good for me, without realizing it. All praise to Allah.

Yet, I was no different to anyone else during adolescence; temptations swayed me and I thought I knew everything.

What goes around comes around

Unable to be lured into taking sides unjustly, I became a big nuisance to the senior as well as junior politicians in my family. Fear of the alien turned to hatred and soon some decided I was better dead than alive. But it had to be done without leaving any footprints.

Dad’s attempt on my life before I was born, lent justification to a sibling and in-law to conjure the plan and pull dad into it – using material wealth as the bait.

To accomplish the task, they turned to the dark arts and sold their souls to the Devil.

Blood Bending

Blood Bending

The Devil, (Iblees) arrived one night, from out of the blue, when I was just 19-years-old. It invaded my being and tried to hold my mind hostage and force me to trade my soul in exchange for ‘leaving me in peace and not harassing me.’

It was supposed to drive me to despair and make me sign all properties over to certain family members and then end my life with my own hands. A series of heartbreaking calamities took place one after another during this era and made the prospect of bidding adieu appear attractive, if not the only option.

When I called out to Jesus, the Devil scoffed me; “Jesus can neither hear you nor help you.” I sank into unfathomable depths of despair. Jesus wasn’t God. So WHERE was God?

A cornered isolated animal fighting for its life with fang and claw is bad enough. A Godless human being becomes a VERY dark animal indeed.

Black Mamba World's fastest and deadliest snake

Black Mamba – world’s fastest and deadliest snake

Having stoically followed the Way of the Snake – Never Strike Until Struck; I swiftly took a page out of Bruce Lee’s book – Enter the Dragon, and redirected the force of my opponent’s attack back on them – return to sender – straight over the bowler’s head and into the grandstand.

The blow didn’t make them relent and undo the magic (sihr); it made them fear me more and their attacks grew in proportion to their fear. I was no longer Zachariah; I was now The Devil, thanks to their handiwork.

But, I fought back. I set out to find God the Almighty; God the Lord of all the Worlds; God The King of kings; The Giver of Life and Death – the ONLY ONE that could help me rid the Devil in me.

Perfect Wave Hair Show 1988
– 19-years

It was a perfect wave alright! When the various Christian Churches tried to console me with different versions of the same fairytale to no avail, grandma rose to the occasion and ordered:

“Kneel down and pray Sona!

Don’t call on Jesus; address your prayer instead to God – the owner of those descriptive titles, and demand His help. He HAS to help you. He created you and put you in this position.”

I obeyed, and was inspired to try Islam.

Moses (PBUH) and the Burning Bush

Moses (PBUH) and the Burning Bush

The inspiration entered my thoughts thrice and ceased.

I concluded that I was raving mad, felt stunned and sad about it, but soon perked up with renewed hope; if I was mad, then it didn’t matter what I did.

The virtue of madness: use it constructively.

Ahmed Deedat

Sheikh Ahmed Deedat

When I asked Muslims about Islam, they shied away and gave me Ahmed Deedat’s address in South Africa and told me to contact him. Hopping mad, I sat and wrote and he replied. He prayed Allah to grant me guidance through his booklets on comparative religion, attached in a parcel. May Allah love him and reward him.

I replaced Bruce Lee with Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him); for ‘he did not speak of his own will, but by that which was given to him from above.’

After reading the Six Pillars of Faith: belief in Allah, all His Angels, Prophets and Messengers, Revealed Scriptures, Day of Reckoning, and Paradise and Hellfire, and the verse Surah Al Ikhlas – meaning sincerity/ refining/ purity:

Say, Say, “The truth is: Allah is One.
Allah is Besought of all, needing none.
He neither begets, nor was he begotten.
And there is none equal to Him.”

I pronounced the Shahada and declared myself Muslim in 1988 –

Muslim in Sujuud  In complete submission to Allah

Lā ʾilāha ʾillā l-Lāh, Muḥammadur rasūlu l-Lāh (I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah alone, and Muhammad is His Messenger)

I was 20-years-old.

For the following ten years, Islam eluded me. I did not know how to stop lying. Allah says in the glorious Qur’aan;

Allah does not guide the liars

Alhamdulillah, I was able to embrace Islam – peacefully submit to the Will of Allah – after Reverend Wimalajothy, helped me get to the font of truth and falsehood in my mind – through the teachings of the Gautama Buddha:

I was 30-years-old when, post ‘enlightenment,’ I dragged the obstinate Devil by its sinful lying forelock, and made pilgrimage to Mecca to perform my Hajj in 1999, with the pilgrim’s declaration:

“Here I am at Your service O Lord, here I am.
Here I am at Your service and You have no partners.
To You alone is All Praise and All Bounty, and to You alone is The Sovereignty. Thou hast no partners.”

The Devil shrieked and fled – causing a minor stampede, without casualties, alhamdulillah – during the Maghrib salaat (sunset prayers) at the Masjid Al Haram (sacred/forbidden place of worship. As used in Islamic urban planning, the word ḥaram (حرم) means ‘inviolate zone,’ an important aspect of urban planning in Muslim civilization. Such protected areas were sanctuaries, or places where contending parties could settle disputes peacefully).

I extol my ‘Heavenly Father,’ Allah Most High (as grandma used to call God), and thank my earthly father, Pater-boy. I could never have done it without you.

May Allah bless and reward  three good friends for escorting me to the airport under high security and assisting me on my pilgrimage.

Good things come in threes

‘The rule of Three is a writing principle that suggests that things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things.’ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_three_(writing)

Of the ‘Unholy Trinity’ (as they called themselves with mocking pride) guilty of having indulged in black magic, comprising a father, son and an unholy ghost, only the son remains alive today.

I have no intention of taking my life and damning my soul. But I am now ready to die in the cause of Allah.

Allah is Greater!

To my father, I say: You taught me excellence. My heart is broken; I’m so sorry you took your life at the rail track. You didn’t find God, but you made damn sure I did. If only, you’d chosen to believe … and made the right effort to look for God –instead of settling for the mediocre – to doubt – and drown in despair…

I forgive you Pater-boy – I couldn’t have had a better father. It’s a pity you didn’t have a better daughter. You told me ‘drive only the bad balls.’ I’m sorry I got my eye to the excellent googlie you delivered.

You taught me well

So, why oh why, did Allah reveal this glorious Qur’an to such a … (nose wrinkled in genuine dismay) … barbaric people – the Arabs?

Answer: When the decedents of Prophet Ishaaq [Isaac] alaihissallaam (AS), failed to honour their covenant with Allah, Allah gave the task over to their lowly brethren – the people of Prophet Ishmaeel [Ismail] (AS).

It was a tight slap in the face – pat-taas!

Although the most barbaric people on the face of the earth, they were also the most capable folk to be entrusted with protecting the Speech of Allah (Qur’aan) – literally with their lives. So that goody-two-shoes types like you and me, could have access to the Noble Qur’aan – 1,400 years later – across the shores and far away in another land – in the comfort of our modern homes.

Yet another significance, in the glorious Qur’aan being revealed to the worst of people, is that in that alone is a sign – for those who think, ponder and reflect. If the Qur’aan can raise the ‘worst’ to the ‘best,’ then it IS the solution for you and me.

Covenant Between Friends

Abraham AS

The slaughter of the Arabs is a done deal: Ibraheem [Abraham] (AS) – ‘the friend of God (Kaleelullah) – made this covenant with Allah donkeys’ ears ago – when he agreed to sacrifice his eldest son, Ishmaeel (AS).

The Prophet, sallallaahu alaihi wassallaam (SAW), was explicit – once the sword was raised against the Arabs, it would not be put down.

What irony – the Arabs are dying today in fulfilment of a covenant with their Lord – to run the race and deliver the Qur’aan to the rest of the world – the very people who are killing them… so that they may receive guidance and restore balance to the world.

May Allah show mercy to the Arabs and Moors and reward them for their spectacular role and bless and raise the family of Ibraheem (AS) and Muhammad (SAW) to the promised ranks. And may revert Muslims fulfil their role – in taking the baton from them and sprinting the last lap to breast the tape and establish Islam (peace) on earth once again. Ameen.

In fulfilment of the covenant, it WILL be the progeny of Ibraheem (AS) – from BOTH his sons, Ishmaeel and Ishaaq (AS) who will restore balance to the world – Jesus [Isa] (AS) as king and Muhammad, the guide [Mahdi] (AS) as Imam.

Understanding the Speech of Allah

quraan 1

Those who suffer from manic bipolar activity and take the Qur’aan 100% literally and those who swing to the other extreme and take it 100% metaphorically, are both offside – gona kanuway (bull in the drain).

Take the Middle Path and the broader view – perceive the metaphor in the literal and the literal in the metaphor… The various grey tones between black and white… It requires reading and meditating, reading and meditating… remember; read The Opening – Al Fatiha – for indeed, Allah says it opens up the passageway through the seven samavat (seven stratospheres) straight up to Allah’s Footstool [Arsh]…

As the last and final Revelation from Allah, Allah addresses Mankind and Jinn in one message for all. It embraces ALL the Prophets and Messengers and Revealed Scriptures (known and unknown) that came before it. It is the answer to unification and the cure to racism. Indeed, it is a merciful healing from the One God, besides Whom, none has the right to be worshipped.

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to what Allah has to say to you first, before going on a trip about what ‘they say’ ‘you say’ and ‘I say.’

Through My Eyes

Team avatar 3The End Times (Akhirus Zamaan) is the era of the battle between energies.

I anticipate the prophesied one-third of the army that proceeds to free the world from the clutches of tyranny will comprise those who migrate from the four corners of the earth – having mastered their respective disciplines and reached enlightenment. They will unite at the appointed location and when they set out to take the physical and spiritual battle to the Negative energy on earth, not a land in their path will be left oppressed. They will be ‘balanced’ people who’ve seen the light and will therefore be guided and energised by the light.

Positive/Good Energy Vs. Negative/Bad Energy

energies

The real battleground is located in the combined realms of the spiritual and material worlds. That’s why; Jihad begins with the nafs (self).

Those who obey Allah have access to His Power.

It’s as simple as that.

But I say come Dajjal, come – come and get the butt whopped…

High drama becomes the order of these days.

Aren’t we just starved for some positive action-filled meaningful theatre?

Besides, I really do wanna see Jesus Christ Superstar – Isa alaihissallam, do his thang – like Aang in Avatar The Last Airbender!

Hands down, Allah IS the talk of the world today. 

Allahu akbar! (Allah is greater!)

Allah’s deen – Islam – natural way of life for His creation, His Messenger, Muhammad, sallallaahu alaihi wassallam (SAW), as well as the entire Muslim Ummah (community) as one body, is on the media operating table without any anaesthetics.

Side by side, on the adjoining tables, autopsies are being carried out on the corpses of the Jews and Christians… Recently, certain misguided Buddhists forcibly insisted their fresh corpse be autopsied too. They want equality for all. So the media brought in more spots to accommodate the latest arrival.

Still, nothing compares to that irresistible spectacle of peering at a living body operated on without anaesthetics… The spin doctors are baffled – how come it won’t die?

Yippee! The spotlight is on us – yeah we made it – we are stars!

Alhamdulillah.

We are always given centre stage, even when we are nowhere on the scene. We are spoken of – non-stop – every day. The media have their magnifying glasses and CCTV cameras covering us 24/7 and they provide a live ball-by-ball commentary about us to the rest of the world. They are selective about their reports and highlight only the juicy stuff… and when there is no juice in the stuff, they manufacture synthetic juice to lubricate their stuff and feed it to their hungry audiences, who lap it up thirstily with slavish gratitude.

It’s hard not to grimace whilst someone is examining your spleen and another cutting into your heart… whilst still many more – interns, nurses and doctors – fidget here and there in a feeding frenzy orgy of blood and gore…

They are scientists trying to find the G-spot to kill it. Audiences usually ‘understand’ when doctors and their medical staff take a bite now and then and swallow it with relish.

Food for thought…

But the thought of food is disgusting when you are already full… so it passes by unobserved…

So how do I feel?

I will speak to you from my spleen, brain, stomach, and as well as my heart. I will also speak to you from my rectum and kidneys occasionally. Forgive me, but accept it – you have kidneys and a rectum too.  As for when I speak to you from my sexual organs, well the ladies will understand perfectly, so gentlemen, catch up.

When the media focuses and lingers on the excreta of the star, it does not mean the star’ shit is any different to your shit. It just means you have a fetish for shit. 

When the rusty knife cut into my Prophet (SAW) – I shuddered with agony…

This is the speech from my collective being:

Pay heed.

When I was a child, my mother used to scold my father:

“What are you doing teaching her martial arts and cricket! See – she’s refusing to wear dresses, saying ‘pants are more comfortable and practical’…”

My father would reply:

“You are concerned about her wearing dresses? I’m concerned about her survival in this world!”

The distance between my mother and me could never be bridged. I was an alien – like ET… Mom was the State – always pursuing ET… My maternal grandma was the young, innocent boy who flew across the moon – somewhere over the rainbow…

ET always wanted to go home… to his people…

I found home within the Muslim Ummah of Muhammad (SAW). They held the book of truth – Al Qur’aan. Whether they practised it or not, didn’t matter. Whether they mocked me or treated me like a step-daughter or not, didn’t matter.

Whether the rest of the world gagged and laughed at me or not, didn’t matter.

From the book of truth, I leant, amongst numerous unending useful things, the meaning of compassion and mercy. How to be humble and repent with sincerity and how to forgive through compassionate understanding – based on justice and fairness – and therefore wise…

I forgave my mother out of pure and simple compassion

How could I ask Allah to forgive me, if I wasn’t willing to forgive?

I won’t bring anything against you Mater, on Yaumul Qiyyamah (Day of Reckoning) in sha Allah.

So, do I love my parents?

It’s a love once drenched in sorrow –
A barren land…
I let go of the title to that land.
I don’t own it anymore.

I love Allah

I love my Prophet (SAW).
I love myself.
I love my maternal grandma.
I love those who’ve wronged me, but NOT their deeds.

I’m with my people – the people I love – though not all of them describe themselves as Muslims. That’s alright with me. I look upon them as Muslims – because their conduct is akin to the descriptions given in the Qur’aan with regard to recognising a Muslim. These people are Muslims without their conscious knowledge.

Just as I once was.

May Allah’s greatest blessings be upon all of you.

The feelings of a Muslim are no different to that of a non-Muslim

We isolate Allah alone for worship.
That’s all the difference there is. Nothing else.
Allah is akbar (greater) to us, because Allah IS akbar.
We’ve humbled ourselves before The Greatest Truth (Al Haqq)

When we defend ourselves, you call us terrorists.
Why, does the simplicity of our truth, terrify you?
