Being Kind: The Music Video That Circled The World

Beautiful!

Where is the Love?

Can you see your love for me shining through?

Cuz what you see in me, I can see in you.

And soon enough, you and me we’ll be out of time.

And kindness will be all we can leave behind.

– Nimo Patel –

The 21-Day Kindness Challenge launched on September 11th. 98 countries. 6000 people. And a collective tidal wave of good that inspired many — including young rapper-activist “Nimo” Patel at the Gandhi Ashram in India. Nimo wasted no time channeling that inspiration into an infectious music video. “Being Kind” was created on super short notice by an intercontinental crew of volunteers working out of their living rooms. It features footage from all over the world and heart-melting appearances by the children Nimo works with in the slums. Watch, listen, and prepare to smile big at this lyrical reminder that kindness really is “all we can…

In Another World …

On Casual Terms with Bruce Lee

3324428162_7e1ae4cbe32

What can I say to the great man who was my childhood hero?

I say ‘Os, master and beloved teacher…you were true, so I remained true.’ I would say it with the hint of a knowing, slightly foolish blush…

You pointed at the truth and the importance of excellence and high quality during my formative years, and tuned my psyche for the reception that was to come…

Let the music tell you how. Listen and read on

The tuning was done. I had to take it from there.

How and why did I figure out (with absolute certainty) that Bruce Lee was a physical demonstration of how to deal with matters of the metaphysical world?

I looked for and found the mind behind the movie-star.

With all due respect to his family, sure, I spent time ogling his spectacular sexy body and dashing good looks…

He certainly attracted me with both eyes… and a wink…

Bruce-Lee-Photo-2

I liked the eye he winked.

It alluringly said, ‘Follow me into the dark alley. I’ll show you mine, if you’ll show me yours.’

He drew sensuously and then slapped the truth into you, mercifully, mercilessly.
You are the last dragon.

The truth never fails to look conspicuously ridiculous wrapped. Like covering poo with a hat…

For as long as I remember, I was acutely conscience and mesmerized by the metaphysical realm within me. I speedily learnt where fairytales ended and reality began. That’s where I lived during my childhood. That’s where I live today. There were no children in the neighbourhood to play with. Those at school were at best, boring.

I was Alice in Wonderland…

I began pondering the difference between aloneness and loneliness when I became aware of the metaphysical world.

Through this world Allah communicates with us via the medium of the angel Mulhim (ilham). Angels are made of Allah’s Light. It is also the same world of the Jinn. We become aware of our Shaitan Qarin Jinnee. It’s a terrifying world and yet, the most comforting. It’s indeed a magical world – you can actually change things at will – through the simple medium of decisive choice – like saying ‘be’ and it is…

1234224_513157278769495_1349615595_n

A karate chop through bricks… the magic power of mind over matter.

It is a beautiful dimension in time where years of ailing heal within split seconds, and yet it still feels like you’ve been there for ages…

Learning the magic words is to learn how Allah programmed it.
Waving the wand is knowing why…

The metaphysical world also has a landscape – it is full of cemeteries of loved ones – fast asleep in their graves… Ghosts are not ghosts, but a ‘tangible,’ intangible reality of the metaphysical world…

Sometimes the inhabitants of the graves push their way through to the surface – gasping for air – make a loud statement and then vanish back into the physical world, leaving you to go – oops that must have hurt…

1240154_585586904816826_1845823737_n

You view the whole scene with both eyes with sparkling clean vision.
Purity in the innocence of childhood…?

Walk stoned through the house of horror…
I loved school carnivals because of the house of horror stall.

As an adult, returning to the wonderful realm of the metaphysical world, to realize that the whole thing about life is death, isn’t easy. Preparing for the next stage – the grave. And most importantly, the consequent final stage – Judgement Day and finally the Bridge over Hellfire (Jahannam) leading to Paradise (Jannah)…

Jahannam is a carnivorous creature of Allah that consumes man and Jinn.

img-thing

Is Fluffy, Allah’s watchdog?

I see the poetry: Jahannam is the smoldering  moat beneath Paradise (Jannah)…

Allah is above all creation. Allah does not dwell within creation. Allah is self-sufficient. Jannah and Jahannam are creations wherein creation must eternally reside in another dimension of space and time.

Allah is beyond creature comprehension – simply because only Allah is not created.

To those seeking comprehension of this, I say be realistic and know where to get off, lest you invite insanity, pondering what cannot be pondered. We do not possess the fundamental capacity to ponder it, because we don’t have the all important component of being not-created. You will never have that proof of evidence. Allah will reveal Himself to you, and yet remain forever veiled before mesmerized, swooning eyes…

Is Paradise really paradise and the Hellfire actually hell?
Is Hellfire the only answer to those who wanted Allah unveiled?
Is Paradise for those who are content with secondary evidence and therefore nearer to the Truth – Al-Haq – Allah?

Is it hell to know, or not know?

Is ignorance bliss?

images (3)

I dive into deep, dark waters illuminated by the Light of Allah… But wait a minute… what’s talk about God doing in a Bruce Lee story…?

All point to the moon to view the heavenly glory, isn’t it?

What does it mean?

The lessons are varied and numerous. Take the metaphor in viewing the light of the sun through the moon (secondary evidence).

You can only view God through both eyes, and that too from behind a veil.

What is Islamic Spirituality (Ihsan)?

Islam is a religion (way) of pointing – of uniting and facing one direction and then pointing together at the declaration of the oneness of God…

It is to perceive Allah as if you see Allah, although you do not see Allah, with the knowledge that Allah sees you.
So rise up through excellence.

Take it intellectually… metaphorically… spiritually…

Watch, listen and be truthful.

I AM SALAHUDDIN:

The reunion between siblings – two brothers – Ismaeel (alaihissalam) and Ishaaq (alaihissalam) … through their progeny after hundreds of painful years apart… That’s the REAL MEANING of  the reunion between the Christians and Muslims… this has already begun taking place, alhamdulillah.

Judas, when you ask the right questions from the wrong one:  

Read the Qur’aan:

Quran reading

“{And because of their saying: “We killed the Messiah, ‘Isa the son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah.” But they killed him not, nor did they crucify him, but it was made to appear to them so, and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no knowledge; they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely, they killed him not.}” [Qur’aan 4: 157]

He did not die: Just as Avatar Aang never died… yeah, behind every great man there is always a tainted; painted, great woman…

So, I say to you:

Handshake

“O People of the Book (Jews and Christians): Come to a word (in good terms) that is Just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah (God) (alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah (God). Then, if they turn away, say “(O People of the Book) bear witness that we are Muslims.” [Qur’aan3:64]

Mahasona was one of the Ten Giant Warriors chronicled in the Mahavamsa

Come, let me touch you and heal you.

What’s the Buzz Tell Me what’s Happening

Isa (Jesus Christ), Mahdi alaihimussallam and the Black Flag Army vs. Dajjal and Yajooj and Majooj (Antichrist and Gog and Magog):

The Angel Mulhim, the ruh (soul), and nafs (body) vs. the Shaitaan Qarin Jinnee and the Shayateen Army Legion.

So, did you seriously think, Allah – the Most Merciful, the Most Kind, would leave your innocent, neglected children home alone without guidance, whilst you irresponsible parents, turn away from the Scriptures and enslave yourselves pursuing materialism – indeed, as you fiddle while the world is burning?

Was it mere coincidence that J.K. Rowling was inspired to write the utterly unique Harry Potter series and make an entire generation – obey the first revelation in the Qur’an?

“Read (Proclaim!) In the Name of your Lord who created
Created man, out of a clot (of congealed blood).
Read (Proclaim), and your Lord is the Most Generous,
Who taught by the Pen,
Taught man that which he knew not.” [Qur’aan 96:1-5]

And then, to proceed to tell them about the End Times – Akhirus Zamman – what is really happening in the world, and provide comforting assurance and clear guidance?

Ha!

“O you who have disbelieved, make no excuses that Day. You will only be recompensed for what you used to do.” [Qur’an 66:7]

Watch the above mentioned films and TV series and then read Imran Hosein’s books (http://www.imranhosein.org/) on the End Times – Akhirus Zamman.

I thank Allah for facilitating the means and avenues to dispel our duties in cyberspace through Avatars.

I stand on terra firma and bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, and embrace ALL Allah’s Angels, Prophets, Messengers and Revealed Scriptures – from Adam to Muhammad alaihimussallam – and seek refuge with Allah from Shaitaan, the accursed:

AYAT AL KURSI – Throne Speech

Allah! There is no god but He – The Living The Eternal:
Slumber cannot seize Him or sleep;
To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth.
Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His permission?
He knows what is before them and what is behind, and they cannot comprehend anything of His Knowledge but so much as He pleases.
His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and preservation wearies Him not.
He is the Sublime, The Greater.
[Qur’an 2:255]

No, I’m not being frivolous;

Let it go trembling… in shame…or leave through laughter…

Why not?

Heal the World

O my Christian brethren!

WE have to first heal the wounds between US and embrace one another sincerely – for the healing to begin and spread to the rest of Mankind and Jinn…

That’s OUR responsibility as People of the Scripture. Don’t tell me you don’t know what I am talking about, because you jolly well DO know, that I KNOW, you KNOW what I am talking about.

OUR battle is to rid the evil spirit racism between Ibraheem alaihissallam’ sons: Ishmaeel and Ishaaq alaihimussallaam.

Follow the example of the two Avatars destined to come together upon the face of this earth to restore justice, peace and balance on earth:

One rising up from the people – Mahdi alaihissallam; descendent of Nabi Ishmaeel (Ismail) alaihissallam…

The other, descending from above – Jesus Christ, Nabi Isa alaihissallam; descendent of Nabi Ishaq (Isaac) alaihissallam…

We are DESTINED to come together.

So come, my dear Christian brethren, come…

Come down from that lofty pedestal and join us here on earth – we ARE your brethren. Our God is One. We have no god but Allah. I’m reaching out to you and waiting with arms wide open…

Come down to earth Jesus Christ Superstar; embrace us and heal this world.

Right Speech 

O my Christian brethren!

Cease your appalling blasphemous racist bigotry this very minute! Stop deriding us, as ‘followers of Prophet Abraham’s illegitimate bastard offspring!’

Purge the divisional phrases ‘your God’ and ‘my God’ from your vocabulary.

Rectify your speech – indeed, use RIGHT SPEECH – as the Gautama Buddha said.

“O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the truth. The Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah and His Word, (“Be!” – and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Ruh) created by Him; so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not: “Three (trinity)!” Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allah is (the only) One Ilah (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs.” [Qur’an 4:171]

“Say O Muhammad: “O People of the Book (Jews and Christians): Come to a word (in good terms) that is Just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah (God) (alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah (God). Then, if they turn away, say “(o People of the Book) bear witness that we are Muslims.”[Qur’an 3:64]

Yep, I’m bowling now. That’s my first delivery.

Hawzat? 😉

All praise is due to Allah for that which is correct.

I seek refuge with Allah for my mistakes.

Wake Up Sri Lanka!

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!

Rambling On…

Understanding Divine Wisdom

Facebook-Cover-Nature28

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.’

Listen:

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!

Perceiving Allah

Allah

Allah says He will be to you as you perceive Him

The balanced way to perceive Allah is through Love, Hope and Fear.

The non-Muslim perceives Allah, azza wajal subahanallah (Most High, how perfect is He) as extremely fearsome… so that’s how He will be to them.

Manic bipolar activity is out of the question – extreme fear or extreme love or extreme hope. Stick to the MIDDLE PATH of moderation.

Make sure it’s balanced – through self examination… observing your thoughts, not guiding, but just observing… awareness… yes, meditation. Then make a conscious effort to update yourself on the required areas of knowledge and watch the changes take place … naturally… smoothly… harmoniously… peacefully.

Try balancing your perception

Learn about ALL of Allah’s beautiful attributes… let hope and love enter your heart…

Whether you want to accept it or not, He is YOUR Lord too.

You KNOW this – or else why do you fear Him so much?

So, let me introduce you to Allah – The Lord of all the Worlds

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Beware the firasa of the Mu’meen (believer).” (A terribly loose translation of firasa, for the benefit of non-Muslims, would be – ‘sixth sense’ or ‘third eye;’ perception of the ghaib – the unseen world – with Allah’s leave.)

Laa hawla wala quuwatta illah billah (there is no strength or might except from Allah Most High).   

‘To conquer death you only have to die…’ is a line from the song, Poor Jerusalem. Listen:

I have always loved Isa alaihissalaam (Jesus, peace be upon him). He also is my Prophet. I know his story not just from the Bible, but from the Qur’aan (http://www.islamicboard.com/comparative-religion/134284303-all-quranic-verses-about-jesus-pbuh.html) as well.

I kept my spiritual life private – because that is exactly how it should be.

However, circumstances are such; I now have to wear my heart on my sleeve. There are so many things that need to be said and so little time left…

To all my Christian brothers and sisters, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I never left Christianity. Nor did I abandon you. I just expanded my consciousness when I embraced Islam. This effectively made me embrace Judaism and Christianity and all the Abrahamic faiths, and all the Messengers and Prophets of (God) Allah.  It happens to be a requirement of the Six Pillars of Faith – Rukn al Iman (http://www.missionislam.com/knowledge/sixpillarsiman.htm ) of a Muslim (one who voluntarily submits to the will of Allah without rancour).

To all my Buddhist brothers and sisters, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I love the Gautama Buddha and his teachings and I endeavour to follow him as best I can. He too is mentioned in Islamic scripture. I have employed the tools of the Buddha’s philosophy to get to the font of truth and falsehood in my mind – and to understand Islam and the times we live in.

Indeed, I embraced Buddhism too.

I have drawn assistance and moulded myself from other philosophies too – too many to mention, but I cannot leave out Bruce Lee, so I say ‘Os’ to my Senseis; Nanda Siriwardene (Masutatsu Oyama Kyokushin-Kai) included. I am beltless, but that’s not the point. When credit is due, it must be given.

To all Jewish, Hindu and ‘other’ religious friends, who believe in The Creator, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

I did not find anything to employ from Judaism, Hinduism or any ‘other’ religion, although I have perceived the clear thread of truth running through them.

In my humble view, the Buddha did an excellent job fixing Hinduism. Four-hundred thousand or so deities were reduced to ‘no deity’ needed to correct your life.

Way to go Siddhartha, O’ Gautama Buddha, is all I will say.

As for the rest – Atheist, Agnostic, and those who reject God, I greet you:

Peace be upon those Rightly Guided!

Don’t hate me and fault me if I have not employed your beliefs, values, methods, lifestyle, and so forth. It is not necessary to climb the mountain from every direction to perceive the view from the top. I found things that worked for me, as mentioned above.

I am just one human being with one life. I can only do so much. I cannot please everybody, and neither can you. Nor has it ever been my intention to do so, nor should it be anyone’s.

Almost 98% of you here on FB know me personally. You know I never gave a shit about popularity votes and the disgusting ‘what will people say’ lifestyle.

I am not a herd animal – never was and never will be.

To ALL of you:

Just accept me for who and what I am. I have accepted you with love.

If I err, and I surely do, please correct me with proofs and evidences that I may rectify and make amends and move on.

I am unorthodox, forthright to a fault, employ the use of profanity (bad language) under poet’s licence, and am short on diplomatic skills… among other things…

Like you, I am imperfect.

Humour is an aspect of my personality/character. Even in the darkest of times, I smile.

30-years

That’s me.

Ana Asifa (please forgive me).

“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]

All that is right and correct is by the mercy of Allah. All errors are mine. Astaefirullah (I seek Allah’s forgiveness).
