Dear GOD, Why Me?

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.


From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
"Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"?

To this Arthur Ashe replied:
The world over -- 50 million children start playing tennis, 
5 million learn to play tennis, 500000 learn professional tennis, 
50000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 
50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 
2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD, 'Why me?'.
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD, 'Why me?'

Happiness keeps you sweet….
Trials keeps you strong….
Sorrow keeps you human….
Failure keeps you humble….
Success keeps you glowing….

Only Faith & Attitude keeps you going....
Always keep people in your life that charge your battery, not those who will drain it.
Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur

Why Muslims Should Rethink Palestine

Ramzy Baroud / Arab News
http://palestinechronicle.com./

Thousands of faithful assiduously listened as I outlined the challenges facing Palestine and its people. Cries of “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) occasionally resounded from a corner of the giant South African mosque. Many whimpered as I described the tragedy that had befallen Gaza as a result of the Israeli siege.

They cheered, smiled and nodded, as I emphasized how the will of the Palestinian people would not be defeated. A few older people at the front simply wept throughout my talk, which preceded a Friday sermon in Durban a few months ago.

Once, I Was A SMUGGLER

Sorry, KAH KAH KAH KAH! Do not be fooled by the title. I was'nt smuggling anything forbidden, I was smuggling my wife out of Daro, Sarawak.

The story,

It happened in August 2009.

My wife was 8 months pregnant and we both been hurled in a far, far away land in Daro, Sarawak. Away from parents and relatives. Us the newlyweds were expecting our first baby in a foreign place.

Doctors in Daro District Hospital earlier had refused to issue us a release letter stating my wife was fit to board a flight. It meant we were not allowed to fly out of Sarawak, like it or not the baby has got to be delivered in Daro, Sarawak. Period.

Actually with all due respect, we did not looking down upon the ability of the medical team at Daro District Hospital, the facility is superb, the doctors are excellent and the nurses are way too friendly with us. We knew they tried their best to make us feel at home. But then again, home was where our hearts were at the moment.

The baby was due in the fasting month, of all the 12 months we have she has choosen the fasting month! So according to the script, we were going to fast here, then the baby will arrive and we were going to celebrate Aidilfitri here in Daro with my wife still in her confinement period. Howzzat?

Easier said than done.  I knew no nuts about taking care of a new born and a new mother in her confinement period.

What food to eat and what to be avoided. I have to find a 'tukang urut'. I have to find a 'tungku'. I have to get some 'minyak angin' for her too, but what if the 'minyak angin' here did'nt suit my wife?What if my wife got 'angin' all over her body?  How my wife gonna answer the nature's call? Is is OK for her to squat? KAH KAH KAH! After all we have a 'cangkung' toilet in the house.

After much thought and after one too many sleepless nights, we made up our mind. I have to smuggle my wife back to peninsula from Daro, Sarawak. There was no way our baby going to be born here.

Our Zahra now. A beauty.
And we took our chance, and we did everything we can think of to avoid being noticed at the Sibu Airport. But to our own amazement, the journey was fuss-free right from the hotel room in Sibu, in a taxi to the airport, at the checkpoint, though I must admit that  my heart went DUB! DUB! DUB! DUB! everytime I saw an AirAsia official or custom officer. KAH KAH KAH!

Well, the rest they say was history. Our Zahra was born on 25th Sept 2009 at HUSM Kubang Kerian, Kelantan.
