I Lost a Friend ….

I know this post might be awkward to you - and you guys have not expected me writing about such topic but I had to let is out

it all started with a tweet which am not going to say who was the owner nor what was in it but all I can say it was about Islam  which is something you would commonly see these days right after the attacks which has happened last Wed .

Like any other HUMAN  being I wrote my opinion and then tons of accusations  and questions from one of  my followers  who is apparently none muslim  .. to me this is kind of questions are expected and understandable cause what happened was such horrible thing !! and thats one fact we all agree !!

when I started answering some of his questions it was not based on what I saw on news cause am not type of person who watches news on daily bases I was answering them based on common sense ! based on what I truly know about my Religion - did that made me a person who is neglecting that facts ?  Although I mentioned that I did not watched news and again he accused me that am trying to hide facts by not watching news !!!!

the debate kept on going on and at the end I apologized if I hurt  him in someway by telling him my opinion and then he was like you hurted your name your defending them and he kept going on - and am like My God what did I say !! I went over my tweets and have not seen a single thing which might show that am defending the attacks or whatsoever …

Later I told him I stated my opinion in certain way not defending what those people did - cause literally I did not say that and if he understood it in his own way and judge me based on that ; with all my respect that is own problem

now thinking about what happened was I actually in position to state my opinion ?? or Do I have the right to do so ? -

do those on social media actually have the right to judge Muslims based on what happened and forgetting the fact that regardless of religion there are good people and bad people and that is something that we can't lose sight of - now those who kept counting  number of attacks that muslims did we as muslims  can bring also number of attacks that non muslim people did too !! but why we keep fighting over who is bad and who is good we know how much media actually fabricate facts and we all know now with era of internet anyone can start blog and state things "to be called facts "which are not true about Islam or any other religion do we have to believe them ?? if a famous writer brought figures and information and put them on website do we have to believe whatever is written , we live in world that it is hard to find the truth ! the ultimate truth

if we never had war or attacks or terrorism we would never reach to that stage and who know maybe  that person would been a good friend of mine and we both could discuss about other valuable topics .. science , education , history we might share knowledge about our religions …

lets not fight all we want is peace !! instead of of accusing  and fighting why don't we try to promote peace - a killer is called a killer regardless of his religion and we are all against killing innocent  people and we are all against  fighting and terrorism

My prayers goes to those who lost their beloved ones ...

I hate and the truth that such people are using the religion as a tool to implement their awful terrorist goals! I believe that God created religion in the service of humanity, and has not created human beings to serve religion :).

People who did those bad thigs covering themselves under Islam are hurting Islams world and muslims.
They understood the islam in a wrong way, our Islam came to publish the peace and guide people to the right way.

Every thing in this life have two sides, bad and good. Like in every religion there are people who follow their religion right and others who followed it in a wrong way! Thats affects the religion and people who follows this religion.

We as muslims understand other religions and respect them! So others should understand our religion and respect it! If any one come and debate with me and keep accused Islam and muslims for what happened in Paris or in any other countries! I will stop them! they do not have the rights to accused me and Islam I will keep fighting omy religion from those who distorts Islam. If one or a group is bad thats not mean that all other people are bad as them!

Do not worry about losting such a friend! A true friend is one who respect you and your religion and understand the right and wrong of each issue happened.

Dear Aysha Alameri Loved this "God created religion in the service of humanity, and has not created human beings to serve religion "Well said

Latifa AlKaabi : I truly Understand that - what I did was only commenting ! and he took it from there ! honestly it is such a shame to waste time defining ur part of view to someone who does not respect them !

My Experience with NO Snapchat

kind of awkward  post I know but I thought it would be nice to share my experience with you guys living for almost two weeks without snapchat

How did it start 

I always felt like I have to reduce checking on snapchat , every morning I wake up am like ok where is my phone whats new on snapchat and that is totally unhealthy
So I felt I should stop using it for awhile , after reading Michelle Phan Book specially the social media or digital detox part am like hmmm now it is the right time to do it ,  the same day I finished reading the book I was like Okay this is it! lets delete this App and have little peaceful break

Addiction Symptoms

Living my dream

When I was a little girl I remember telling my siblings that I have two personalities; the first is Noof as they know and the other one is the American personality and I named her "Suzie" how funny is that XDit has always been my dream to visit USA and experience living there .... Guess what

Today I am at United States pursing my masters at University of Pennsylvania 
No Magic was required to make my dream came true all I needed was to "believe that it will happen in the right time " I know this might sound like ridiculous topic to talk about and what a goal !! to me it is not just to live the western life, it is to know my true self without any instructions, to appreciate everything that I have. Also to learn how to be independent. Most importantly I want to inspire others.

The journey to get here took lots of courage and determination I had to be sure that this is what I really wanted and I have to be clear why do I really want it. For me this has made a huge shi…

Can Creating a loving world a "possible" mission ?

When you think about it ....we are all human being "regardless" of labels "we" have created it 

scattered thoughts.....

living for almost a year in a complete different culture , being exposed to this whole new experience  made me realize that we are all same ...

I had friends from different parts of the world , with different backgrounds , different religion . I was not sure if being around  so many people with variety of differences was a safe enough for me  to do , I admit that I had this misconception that I might not be "welcomed" cause I cover my head but I guess such fears were implanted in my head due to what was presented in media , though , I literally stopped watching/reading news. But all what is out there highlights


But in community I lived with , I have learned that we  all have a goal which is larger than us .... help others to flourish , we were always there for each other whenever we needed support , we ar…
