ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves

Hate-No More

I am tired of people abusing openly at social network sites. and they don't even pause for a lady. they have apparently brought down all walls. The civility which was attached to 'educated' is nowhere to be seen. The degrees and job descriptions written after your name on these sites are of no importance if one checks out your tweets and the things you say-even to ladies. This is audacious. I was plainly shocked when I read that tweet. My eyes physically hurt when I read something like this. And it was ReTweeted-meaning forwarded to others. Lord. What an age. I was thinking about un-following all the people who used hate as their weapon but than I realized I will be following very few. If this is freedom of expression than God forbid we are better without it. 

Though I am enraged and want to say more but ending it on few quotations IF 'they' would just try to listen.

"And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah. And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly." Al-Quran [49:9]

Bhittai says: "Stop before firing your arrow on me. I am You! You may hurt yourself!"

(Please please think before you say something. There's enough hate in this world. We don't need more.)

  3. Greetings,

    Thank you very much for this.

    It is indeed always important to be respectful, civil, and polite. Taming the ego is the purpose behind manners, and is very important.

    The title of your post brings to mind the teaching attributed to Hazrat Khwaja Mo'inuddin Chishti of "Love all, hate none."

    All good wishes,

    robert

  4. A very thought provoking piece but since we are told pen is our power so we try to use it to vent out our own frustrations rather than the anger that we had felt due to a particular action. our words are not our reactions but mere our own psychological and emotional turmoil that we are into
