A tongue is a piece of meat Not like a one way street But it is a double edged weapon It could be a threaten Or a valuable goods wagon Words can build societies And they may destroy majorities Sohair Allah says أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاءِ Seest thou not how Allah sets forth a parable? – A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavens,- of its Lord. So Allah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition. تُؤْتِي أُكُلَهَا كُلَّ حِينٍ بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهَا ۗ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ It brings forth its fruit at all times, by the leave of its Lord. So Allah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition. وَمَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ اجْتُثَّتْ مِنْ فَوْقِ الْأَرْضِ مَا لَهَا مِنْ قَرَارٍ And the parable of an evil Word is that of an evil tree: It is torn up by the root from the surface of the earth: it has no stability Ibrahim chapter Quran
Death is what gives life a meaning It is either subvening Or cleaning You can make your choice Caring Not for all the noise It is only one life Needs a lot of strive But freedom is some thing rare In societies that undergo a despair A despair of being aware Aware of getting rid of old programming And for a better future they should be planning Sohair Allah says Chapter 67 The Sovereignty سورة الملك – Al-Mulk: Verse 2 الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْمَوْتَ وَالْحَيَاةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفُورُ He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving;-
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ حمHa Mim:تَنْزِيلٌ مِنَ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِA Revelation from (Allah), Most Gracious, Most Merciful;- كِتَابٌ فُصِّلَتْ آيَاتُهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَA Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Quran in Arabic, for people who understand;- بَشِيرًا وَنَذِيرًا فَأَعْرَضَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ فَهُمْ لَا يَسْمَعُونَGiving good news and admonition: yet most of them turn away, and so they hear not. وَقَالُوا قُلُوبُنَا فِي أَكِنَّةٍ مِمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَفِي آذَانِنَا وَقْرٌ وَمِنْ بَيْنِنَا وَبَيْنِكَ حِجَابٌ فَاعْمَلْ إِنَّنَا عَامِلُونَThey say: “Our hearts are under veils, (concealed) from that to which thou dost invite us, and in our ears in a deafness, and between us and thee is a screen: so do thou (what thou wilt); for us, we shall do (what we will!)” قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ يُوحَىٰ إِلَيَّ أَنَّمَا إِلَٰهُكُمْ إِلَٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَاسْتَقِيمُوا إِلَيْهِ وَاسْتَغْفِرُوهُ ۗ وَوَيْلٌ لِلْمُشْرِكِينَSay thou: “I am but a man like you: It is revealed to me by Inspiration, that your Allah is one Allah: so stand true to Him, and ask for His Forgiveness.” And woe to those who join gods with Allah,- الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ بِالْآخِرَةِ هُمْ كَافِرُونَThose who practise not regular Charity, and who even deny the Hereafter. إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍFor those who believe and work deeds of righteousness is a reward that will never fail. قُلْ أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَكْفُرُونَ بِالَّذِي خَلَقَ الْأَرْضَ فِي يَوْمَيْنِ وَتَجْعَلُونَ لَهُ أَنْدَادًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَSay: Is it that ye deny Him Who created the earth in two Days? And do ye join equals with Him? He is the Lord of (all) the Worlds.
One of the good things is to set up a fund for the poor, where a special fund for the poor can be established and placed in institutions, whether public or private institutions such as (schools, hospitals, companies, and factories). The money collected in the fund is distributed every period to the poor people working in those sectors, or it can be distributed to students who are unable in schools, and this is in complete secrecy without the knowledge of those around. Another form of charitable work where assistance can be provided in publishing advertisements for charities, announcing the entities that support charitable works and motivating and encouraging people to donate to those associations. This is done through various social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and other different sites.

Or by placing a leaflet or pictures of these charitable organizations on the walls of the house, for example, or on the rear windshield of the car, or on various pieces of clothing with simple information about these institutions. Charity can also be done by printing the name of the charitable organization on small cardboard boxes, or plastic bags that contain several foodstuffs and basic items and are left in some places for the poor to take for free and without facing any embarrassing situations. Woolen hats and gloves are made, in addition to providing winter blankets, they are packed in suitable bags and distributed to needy students, in addition to making healthy meals and distributing them to them. Some free meals can be allocated and left in restaurants for the needy and the poor who are unable to pay for those meals. Making school bags for students that include all the school supplies that the student cannot provide. These bags are distributed by providing a special room to display these bags, and the student takes what he needs from them. It is possible to do shopping, buy basic items and foodstuffs, and give them to the poor without the knowledge of others. It is also possible to donate money by putting it in small envelopes and leaving it in front of the homes of the poor, as well as donating clothes and blankets in winter and summer. Collect money from friends and relatives and provide for the needs of brides who are unable to purchase those essential needs.

Why ten days Allah says They are treasures Because life is ten days Yes Life is a short trip You can travel in a ship Or by plane with a belt around the hip Choose the way you like Even if it is a bike You should arrive soon But stay in tune Your time is only ten days take care When writing your essays Sohair Allah says By the Dawn (1) And ten nights, (2) And the Even and the Odd, (3) And the night when it departeth, (4) There surely is an oath for thinking man. (5) Dost thou not consider how thy Lord dealt with (the tribe of) A’ad, (6) With many-columned Iram, (7) The like of which was not created in the lands; (8) And with (the tribe of) Thamud, who clove the rocks in the valley; (9) And with Pharaoh, firm of might, (10) Who (all) were rebellious (to Allah) in these lands, (11) And multiplied iniquity therein? (12) Therefore thy Lord poured on them the disaster of His punishment. (13) Lo! thy Lord is ever watchful. (14) As for man, whenever his Lord trieth him by honouring him, and is gracious unto him, he saith: My Lord honoureth me. (15) But whenever He trieth him by straitening his means of life, he saith: My Lord despiseth me. (16) Nay, but ye (for your part) honour not the orphan (17) And urge not on the feeding of the poor. (18) And ye devour heritages with devouring greed. (19) And love wealth with abounding love. (20) Nay, but when the earth is ground to atoms, grinding, grinding, (21) And thy Lord shall come with angels, rank on rank, (22) And hell is brought near that day; on that day man will remember, but how will the remembrance (then avail him)? (23)He will say: Ah, would that I had sent before me (some provision) for my life! (24) None punisheth as He will punish on that day! (25) None bindeth as He then will bind. (26) But ah! thou soul at peace! (27) Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) Enter thou My Garden!

They plant flowers Instead of thorns They sing romantics Instead of tragedics They suffered since the very moment Their life is a Sour component Their tears are blood Their agony is a flood But look at their behavior It reflects a real labor They spread light wherever they go Inspite of all they undergo Their message is unique Like a precious antique Greetings to light workers Greetings to peace soldiers Sohair Allah says وَسَيُجَنَّبُهَا الْأَتْقَى But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from the hell الَّذِي يُؤْتِي مَالَهُ يَتَزَكَّىٰ Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification, وَمَا لِأَحَدٍ عِنْدَهُ مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ تُجْزَىٰ And have in their minds no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,
إِلَّا ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ رَبِّهِ الْأَعْلَىٰ But only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Lord Most High.

Each one knows its own (mode of) prayer and praise. And Allah knows well all that they do
