The Shia Sunni argument has now taken new turns; it has brutally mutilated both the sects and has further divided them into dissimilar sects. The assimilation of foreign culture has made the Shia minority more vulnerable. The recent invention of a new tutoring board, called the Agha Khan Board has left several Shia clerics in shudder, where the board moves from a conservative mind set to a liberal one. Music, which is rated as unlawful by all Muslims be it Shia or Sunni this board out rules the fact and passes a judgment saying music is lawful. Recently the outline and curriculum of this board was implemented in quite a few schools which made many Shia families uncomfortable. This is one more divergent, where the boundary line of Shism and Ismaielism overlap. Many Shia-centric families boycotted the system but many went along it, averring they had no other choice but to opt for the vexatious board.

The Agha Khan board has been premeditated and made in such a manner that it facilitates the Shia (Ismaeli’s) the most, forgetting the fact that the Shia (Ismaeili’s) and Shia (Twelver’s) are two entirely different sects which do not even agree on one pillar of Islam reciprocally.

The Agha Khan board seems to find the Shia (Twelvers) themselves or was it structured in such a way that it had to adapt the new educational system?

Jameel Yousuf, A Sunni converted to Shia, currently the chairman of the Agha Khan Education board and a former CPLC chief, has brought the system in the Shia community, where he himself belongs too. The Al-Murtaza School which runs under him sees a new face of shism, which allows co-education and ranks the hearing of music lawful. The black sheep is nowhere but someone too bulbous and within the community.

The government seems to do nothing about the issue, oh well I am sorry, the government has nothing to with Islam or anything related to Islam. Even the Shia clerics seem to do nothing. These clerics can gather outside the parliament house and protest against the sectarian killings but cannot protest against their very own Jameel Yousuf who is responsible to trash generations, one after the other. We are a bunch of mindless people. We go where we get courtesy, to be more appropriate attention seekers would be the right word. I am no different. I am also the part of these bunches of fools who bark against the entire world when the problem lies amongst us. I regard the infiltration of western culture more destructible than sectarian violence. Let’s opt for a solution, is there any? NO is the answer. We have gone too far where there seem to be no way of returning back.

Have been keeping a pretty low profile this past while, not doing much at all. Busy with work, two hot events coming up. Hope they turn out well.

Obviously, I have experienced this in the past and admit to having had periods of woe is me. Unless you have had breathing issues it is hard to imagine how it does suck the energy out of you. It is almost like with each breath you aren’t getting quite enough air.

My attitude has changed over time. There is no sign of any “woe in me” anywhere. It has been replaced with a really profound sense of gratitude that I am in fact still breathing.

As i sit here I think of all the times in my past when I allowed the “woe is me” to take over my mind-set. Times when life wasn’t going my way. Thoughts like, “why did this have to happen” or “why did he/she have to do that”, “It is just not fair, why did this have to happen to me, woe is me”. I would mope, wallow around until some how things seemed to get back on track and again be going “MY” way and only then was I happy again. As I think about it really how selfish is that? Getting upset, sulking when you don’t get your way. It is sad when I think of all that wasted time. I read somewhere that time is like money in that you only get to spend it once. When it is gone it is gone. How wisely we spend it is up to us. huh, so much of mine wasn’t spent in the wisest way and that I do regret.

I can’t get back the time I wasted in the past but I can be sure I don’t waste anymore going forward.

There is another saying something to the effect: Life may not be the party we had hoped for but we might as well dance while we are here.  Huh, something just hit me and I actually got up and danced. Now since I am alone here at the moment I really laid down a few fancy steps and moves, let me tell you.lol. “Miqdad” dancing is a style of its own.lol. Give it a try, stand up right now and just let it loose, I dare you. OK, maybe don’t overdo it, my little dance has me huffing and puffing but it was worth it.

LIFE TAKES EFFORT BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT.

Why do I write this blog? One part of the reason is to I hope help others realize the priorities in life. To realize how truly wonderful life is. Of how we take so much of it for granted. I urge all to take a look at your own life; maybe certain parts are “upside down” right now. Don’t focus on the areas of life that aren’t going our way. Look at the big picture of your life; you will if you are honest see much to be grateful for. If your life is upside down and you just can’t see anything to be grateful for. I challenge you to look again, with this thought in mind. I am grateful for just being able to breathe. Would you like to trade places and then look back at your life as it is?

Don’t put criticism on what you read, I read a comment put forward by an English teacher, it wad though rude and meaningless. But still comments are always welcome. I personally thing you should extract good point on what you read neither putting up comments just for the heck of it.

Good Night 🙂
