"Rather than complaining to others, complain to the one who can solve your problems."

Mi Fe

Mi fe es la parte mas importante de mi vida. Sólo Dios sabe por qué las situaciones pasa en nuestras vidas. Ya se que mi cara está hinchada y estoy con mucho dolor, todavía pongo mi fe en Dios. Aunque tuve que interrumpir  Ramadán, aprendí mucho estas últimas 3 semanas. Y no cambiaría nada en este momento, lo que sí sé que Islam es mi fe y mi vida.

My Ramadan Comes to an End :(

This is not what I had hoped for or have foreseen coming, a toothache that started on Friday became worse yesterday and today.  I was taking pain meds after I woke and when I broke my fast and I was praying for Allah to heal and that it would not get worse.  But I yesterday the pain became worse and I knew I had to break my fast.  I went to the clinic today and it turned out I have a serious infection, so a prescription of antibiotics, strong ibuprofen and vicoden.  This is not what what I wanted to happen I truly felt so good this Ramadan for the first time :).  I know I can make up the days and I know the Shawaal fast I intended to so is over as well, but my health is more important and Allah knows best.  Still sad and bummed….

I used to wonder why some Palestinian people would engage in actions that could only provoke the aggressor further. Then I realized that to ask a people to live quietly, while they have no justice and no freedom, is to ask them to live “peacefully” as slaves. “Peace” without justice or freedom is slavery. It’s like asking a battered woman to live “peacefully” with her abuse. We all want the bloodshed to stop. But what about the daily humiliation and institutionalized oppression?

I was reminded of a part in “The Hunger Games” when Katniss considers abandoning the resistance against the oppressor, in exchange for “safety”. Gale’s response was telling. He said: “Safe to do what? Starve? Work like slaves? Send their kids to the reaping?”

Consider this: If a woman is being raped, things would be a lot more “peaceful” if she didn’t resist. But, asking her not to resist—just because her attacker is physically stronger—is asking her to accept her own abuse and oppression for the sake of “peace”. This is what the world is asking Palestinians to do.

And sometimes what seems to the world as just ineffective tactics, like throwing a rock at a tank, is in fact an act of resistance. It is a powerful statement to the oppressor—and the world—that they refuse to be enslaved. That dignity and self-respect are even more beloved to them than their own lives.
It is a statement that you can take their lives. But not their freedom.

Looking forward to run here in a little bit and do I need it. Especially after working 12 days straight, but I’m off tomorrow :). It’s the 21st night tonight LaylatulQadr.

Ramadan Reflections, Day 18

m-khadija:

This is so powerful. Just reflect over it:

"So let them pardon and overlook. Would you not like that Allah forgive you?" (Quran 24:22)

"It’s very easy to forgive when you yourself have your own share of transgressions, or to say, “I don’t want to argue” when you know you’re losing the…

Indeed sis!
