What is Happening Here?

Current music: I wanna tell you sometimes / it feels like we've killed the world / Don't wanna leave you like no mercy left at all / Then I don't know where the love, will come back into our lives / It feels like saving the world, saving the world / You and I

Do you think that humanity is hopeless? Do you only see bleak and uncertain dark future for our kids? If you answered yes, then…shame on you! You need to get outta here! NO! Wait! I’m just kidding of course. Please stay. I need the traffic anyway.

Seeing what happens in our world today just plainly breaks my heart. Nations being oppressed, killings, genocides, war, famine, animal cruelty, exploitation, pollution and the list just goes on and on…  I do believe in humanity, I do. And I do believe that we can find peace and live in harmony regardless of race, religion and status. But it’s hard because we’re humans,  who (me included) are full of flaws, and we’ve been like this ever since God created Adam and Hawa (Eve). Jealousy, greed, hatred, ignorance, egoistic, arrogance, anger are just some of these flaws, or in other word mazmummah traits. Remember the story of Habil (Abel) and Qabil (Cain)? There’s even a Korean drama made based roughly on the events! But humans don’t really learn anything from this. I’m really sad.  I just hope that my children or your children and the children of their children will know peace, and it’ll not become just a word which never actually existed anymore… Give peace a chance!

I am not a preacher (I'm too flawed to be one anyway), but just a normal human being that can’t stand seeing another human being or any beings being hurt again and again and again by our disgusting flaws… makes me so ashamed of being called a human. Don’t we all have hearts?? What is happening here? What is happening?

I said this before and I would repeat it again, I still believe in humanity!

Hope that this doa will be in your prayers, my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters.

بسمالله الرحمنالرحيم

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
May the blessings of Allah be upon our master and our beloved one
And our intercessor and our Prophet Muhammad and the household of Muhammad
May the blessings of Allah be upon all the Prophets and Messengers
May the blessings of Allah be upon all the Angels
O’ Allah, grant victory to the Muslim ummah
O’ Allah, hold dear to you the Muslim men and women
O’ Allah, hold dear to you the believing men and women
O’ Allah, I ask you for guidance and satisfaction
O’ Allah, I ask you for reverence in prayer
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from syaitan the accursed, the damned
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from all of your enemies
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from the evil of oppressors
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from the evil of hypocrites
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from the evil of the arrogant one
O’ Allah, I ask that you don’t make me of the losers
O’ Allah, I ask that you don’t separate me from my religion
O’ Allah, I ask you to have mercy on me and to guide me
O’ Allah, I seek refuge in you from the evil of my nafs (ego) and the evil of my qareen
O’ Allah, I ask you to grant paradise as my destiny

By the way, I would like to wish Muslims Happy Eid ul-Fitri! Please forgive me for all of the mistakes that I've made and if I've offended you in any way be it unintentionally or intentionally! Peace everyone! :)
