Look Into My Eyes

Salam.

Here is a song I like from Outlandish. I first listened to this song in 2007 although it was released in 2005.
This song is made based on a poem by a Palestinian, describing Palestinians' lives.

Let's listen and ponder.



Here is the lyrics

Look Into My Eyes by Outlandish

Look into my eyes
Tell me what you see
You don't see a damn thing
'cause you can't relate to me
You're blinded by our differences
My life makes no sense to you
I'm the persecuted one
You're the red, white and blue

Each day you wake in tranquility
No fears to cross your eyes
Each day I wake in gratitude
Thanking God He let me rise
You worry about your education
And the bills you have to pay
I worry about my vulnerable life
And if I'll survive another day
Your biggest fear is getting a ticket
As you cruise your Cadillac
My fear is that the tank that has just left
Will turn around and come back

Do you know the truth of where your money goes?
Do you let your media deceive your mind?
Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows?
Someone tell me...

Ooohh, let's not cry tonight
I promise you one day it's through
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters
Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters

See I've known terror for quite some time
57 years so cruel
Terror breathes the air I breathe
It's the checkpoint on my way to school
Terror is the robbery of my land
And the torture of my mother
The imprisonment of my innocent father
The bullet in my baby brother
The bulldozers and the tanks
The gases and the guns
The bombs that fall outside my door
All due to your funds
You blame me for defending myself
Against the ways of my enemies
I'm terrorized in my own land
But am I the terrorist?

Do you know the truth of where your money goes?
Do you let your media deceive your mind?
Is this a truth nobody, nobody, nobody knows?
Someone tell me...

Ooohh, let's not cry tonight, I promise you one day it's through
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,
Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,

America, do you realize that the taxes that you pay
Feed the forces that traumatize my every living day
So if I won't be here tomorrow
It's written in my fate
May the future bring a brighter day
The end of our wait

Ooohh, let's not cry tonight, I promise you one day it's through
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters,
Ooohh, shine a light for every soul that ain't with us no more
Ohh my brothers, Ohh my sisters.


Let us keep praying for our muslim brothers and sisters around the world. Every day, especially during this holy month.

May Allah bless us...

Wassalam.

It's Ramadhan Again!

Bismillah.

Alhamdulillah, Allah has given us the chance to enjoy Ramadhan again. Alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah.

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “When the month of Ramadan starts, the gates of the heaven are opened and the gates of Hell are closed and the devils are chained.
[Sahih Bukhari]

Let us fill this Ramadhan with lots and lots of ibadah, at least by remembering Him all the time. May our deeds will be accepted by Him, and may Allah bless us!

more OSM Ramadhan Tips here on facebook.

Here's a prayer that we can recite throughout this holy month;

بارك اللهم لنا في شهر رمضان
-Baarikillahumma lanaa fii syahri Ramadhan-
"O Allah, bless us in the month of Ramadhan"

Happy Ramadhan!
Wassalam :)

Of expectation towards people

Bismillah.


Sometimes we forgot that people are humans and they can't be perfect. So, don't expect them to perfectly suit our expectation.

Dear everyone in this planet including me,
please accept people as they are.

Because we want others to accept us as we are too.

kalau tak, forever alone lah macam Danbo The Boxman ni. Takde orang nak kawan. Orang amik gambar candid je.

but, don't use this 'everybody makes mistakes' phrase as an excuse for ourselves to not be better.

Rasulullah (pbuh) said: "Every son of Adam sins, and the best of those who sin are those who repent."
- Narrated by Al-Tirmizi

Wassalam :)
