Concerning Sakinah

He it is Who sent down As-Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) into the hearts of the believers, that they may grow more in Faith along with their (present) Faith. And to Allah belong the hosts of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise.. Surah Al- Fath Ayat 4.

I like Muhsin Khans Translation best.

Im going to have ice cream today :D

Yeah - that was arb. Anyway - I gave blood yesterday. This is my tenth year that im donating. I really do love giving blood - not so much for knowing that i'm helping people. I do it for the biscuits and juice. Also - because I have the rarest blood type in the world (AB negative) the 'blood people' treat me like royalty (thats two lollipops for you Mr Khan) I figure its because they fetch a higher price for my blood. Its great to know that im special that way - one in a hundred people have my blood type..which pretty much means im screwed if I need blood.

Do gay people fight for the right to give blood? Because from what ive seen (in the questionnaire thingy) is that 'HomoGlobin' (yeah I just coined that) is excluded. Weighed myself before giving blood - I put on like seven kilos. Must be all that Scooters ive been eating lately.

How did I go from Sakinah to this? I dont know. I have a habit of starting at one place and ending at another.

Anyone else think that the raj is a total joke for blaming the IPL for his lack of votes? See what I did there - I didnt even capitalise his name. truth be told - I was going to vote for him, but I decided to waste my vote on the Al Jamah party instead. I still have the ink stain. Mj doesnt use manicure tools. Only problem is, that it looks like a small bird shat on my thumb nail. I like how the ink mark is moving up slowly as my nail grows. Its almost half way up. Which means my thumb nails grow like Sabretooths.

Nasheeds make me romantic and cloaks drive me wild. Not lustful romantic... but Mohabbat romantic - the sweet type. But I do mean wild in the same way youre thinking though.


I'm loving Wolverine on the Xbox. Its such a fun game. I bought Motorstorm Pacific Rift for my PS3 today. Was a bit of an impulse buy. The Xbox is still my favourite console in the current generation.

all Hail Microsoft. for giving us Hotmail addresses when we were young.

I decided I like cats. I like Hamsters, but I like cats too. But I love licorice the best from the three. I can never get tired of eating licorice. Or Gherkins.

Finally - some trivia for you guys.If you watched the Wolverine movie you probably noticed the sticker on the old couples back window - 'Not all those who wander are lost.' Sounds familiar hey - Aragorn says it in the Lord of The Rings :D I guess they used it because that scene was filmed in New Zealand. It was a cool moment.

I might be doing an M.C gig in a few weeks. Watch this space.

My Parents Anniversary was yesterday. Forty Years. Dam thats a long time.

This blog has no flow whatsoever. Which makes it all the more special to me :)

My mum just buzzed me on the intercom. She cant sleep so she wants to have tea. Let me run.

Wishing you guys Sakinah.

Concerning Kids

Ive been Tagged by Kimya to list ten pieces of advice that I would give my kids. This meme was started by Kay so mad props to her etc etc :P Ive got a few minutes before I have to leave campus so lets knock something out quickly

1. Listen to your mother. She will probably know whats best for you and I will not undermine her when she says no... Unless she tells you not to buy me a gift. In that case you rebel. However, make note of number 6.

2. Learn to hold the joystick correctly - there is a reason why Ive had you.

3. Slippers are appropriate footwear for any occasion

4. Wrestling is fake. Watch as much of it as you like, but know that its not real. Neither is anything you see on Survivor or Big Brother - its all scripted and manipulated.

5. Read your salaah. I dont care if you watch tv, listen to music, destroy plants and small animals... but you must read your salaah. But try not to kill small animals.

6. I do not want a Fifty Rand Fathers Day card that has been paid for with my money. Get a Job and then waste your money on a card. Until then - Crayons and Felt Tip Pens will do.

7. Share your food with everyone. Do not eat by yourself. There is barkat (blessing) in sharing

8. Once youve earned enough money and are old enough- travel. See the world. Leave your mother and I alone. We are going to want some alone time when we grow old.

9. Get a hobby or get involved in some sport. As long as it doesnt mean I have to wake up at six on a Sunday Morning to drive you to cricket practise.

10. Some day you will have children of your own. Your mum and I will probably love them to bits. But please dont dump them on us.

11. Your aunty Joe is a little strange but I know you will still love her.

12. Learn to count - Unlike your dad.
