This Sky. This View. This Masjid. 
Whenever my eyes are set on this sight, which i am most fortunate to say is everyday, it always feels like i am seeing it for the first time. Furthermore I am reminded of the greatest battle which one embarks upon is that with one's own soul.

From the Sky & the Sun. We are at a distance so that we can sense the rays upon us. And the same distance lets us gain perspective to allow appreciation of beauty in Almighty's creation. Its movements encourage one to contemplate: remember, repent, relive the past; show gratitude and perseverance for the present; anticipate and hope for the future. It gives us a constant to live against. A certainty of what will not change. A deliberate sign that: what is done is not lost but placed away; what is, is a choice in hand; and what will be has space for dreams. Then it is to the horizon path, with the hues of both nature and development, which we look at to reflect and pray for the art of living on Earth in a modern world.

Clear skies in Nairobi is a rare sight. And though we fantasize about the pretty pictures drawn by clouds, their absence outlines the definite terrain of the breathtaking Gnong Hills and their windmills.

Blue skies with painted clouds and flags raised high, I ask, where do our loyalties lie? Do we decide by the name of the land or the star in the sky or by the air we breathe that passes us by? Is it by our birth place or our family name? Or by the love we have for those we call our own? Or by the principles we've learned and the faith we believe? Or by what we've been taught as right and wrong? Where do our loyalties lie? When does the compass point North? 
Onward, the road to Dar e Salaam: the home in which we will be safe and secure - Our eternal destination. May we reach and reside in His shelter, under the shade of His enlightenment... Forever.

"Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find that money cannot be eaten." Wise words mounted in Zanzibar. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-
Only after destruction in wealth and power, only after elimination in greed and jealousy, only after despondency in hate and vengeance, only then will you find that materialistic measures and worldly pleasures can never replace contentment of heart and peace of mind!
When will we learn that we are all only human... A people who must survive this wide world together for each other. #wise #words #zanzibar

On board Kilimanjaro 6.
The only metaphor that crossed my mind on these breathtaking salty waters was the opening and closing of a zipper; seamlessly parting and joining itself with the ocean. Your journey is your own and so is the course that you a set out on. The depiction of these waters as they carry us between borders become a direct parallel to the way every relationship binds and the way we sail through life. In our closeness and nearness, or in our distance and absence, the depths of the ocean have all the answers. While there are waves within in the stillness of these waters, they echo words into the air and our souls: "Be safe. Be sound. Be sane." Take this advice. For if you give yourself to the waters, you will either float, drown or learn to swim; but no matter what happens to you, the waters will take you, hold you and keep you... for however long it takes... #waters #journeys #ferryrides #ocean #zipper #zip #onboard #deepthoughts #holdingon

SAND TREASURES
Anchors now are contrived so as to sink into the ground as they reach it, and to hold a great strain before they can be loosened or dislodged from their station (William Falconer). But then there comes a tug - even in the life of an anchor - when it has to break loose and let go, so as to give its boat and passengers the chance of a plain sail and survival, trusting, drifting and floating upon the waters... while the anchor remains ashore, left behind, firmly holding on... Waiting for its new course...

BOAT TRAVELS
We are imprisoned in the realm of life, like a sailor on his tiny boat, to an infinite ocean (Anne Freud). Yet the ocean is our escape and aboard the boat we are free to experience the journey from the shore toward the horizon...

SALTY SPLASHES
Never underestimate the power of the ocean (Heidi Klum). From rowdy rough to silent and still, the water's movements compose a melody. It's body of waves and droplet composition soothe and strengthen our soul. The tide strides in and the tide swims out; it brings with it bounties and blessings, while it takes with it our burdens and blunders...Oh how the clear calm waters fill our broken selves with hues of blues...

E.C.L.I.P.S.E
Light obstructed totally or partially is what we define as darkness... Light is everything. Darkness is nothing. Light is the way through. Darkness is treading blind. Light is open and visual. Darkness is blank and black. We are under constant attack of light being stolen from us and darkness being gifted to us. Be wary of who and what you let it... Let us not shadow the shine instead let us illuminate our souls on our journey toward the finish line.

The ultimate cross we first come across at school for the wrong spelling or a miscalculation in a mathematical sum in the famous dreaded red pen! Little do we know the bigger cross to face is the one where the brain and heart don't align. The permanent cross of our living is either when these two either irrationally agree or rationally disagree... Like sugar and spice, the heart and brain go hand in hand creating the flavours and rollercoasters in our dramatical living turmoil. May we be smart enough to listen to the crosses and not cross them out for they are a terror warning sign. May our hearts beat strong and our brains follow in wiring suit for it's the symbiotic relationship of these two powerful organ systems that makes us different from one another.

Lessons Learned in Living
The equalateral triangle of human flaw summed up in three words. The three stages of human existence: Once we learn the art of life, we must live with Leal to find the balance between giving, taking and receiving Love. There are no textbooks or instruction manuals for learning; no laws or formulae for choice; no directions or procedures for feelings. But we learn that to live we need the three L's and the absence and presence of the three corners is what keeps us sturdy and shaky through our faults and ages. Since equalateral triangles are the strongest geometrical shape providing strength and stability allowing any extra exertion forced upon it to be equally distributed, the triangle is sure to withstand all pressure. May our flawed-selves be equalteral triangles that withstand the pressures of this world.

Final post from my #India #Diaries.

Sometimes you lie awake in bed at night, other times you sit at daydream in the middle of the afternoon .. Most of the time you procrastinate your way through life...
Lights of life; sometimes consciously switched on, mostly ignored and taken for granted.

Here, at Best Western hotel, I stared at the chandelier; not knowing whether I felt despair, desperation or drive... But what I did know, was that no matter how hard I tried to block it out, people and places found a way of pivoting every inch of ground I stood on... And like light, that shines only because of darkness, a candle burns only to melt the wax and ash the wick; I exist only as a relationship tag, where I am nonsense and everyone else, under the pretense of 'caring' - eliminates, destroys and carves through me while my head goes tick tick tick... Still, there is a voice inside that says, "Every ray has it's day..." And now, no matter what else comes my way, I know I'll be okay.

"The Pearls of our Dawat lie in India"
With utmost pride every now and again, we hop on a flight to 'hindustan'; the country where the rays of sacrifice shine, where miracles befall before your eyes, where you learn to live and love a thousand more times... raising our heads and our minds, looking up at the radiance of light, each crystal and bulb takes the fall, but together the chandelier holds so strong.

No matter where you are or what has come to pass - be a crystal in a chandelier... Do your part... Stay in your place... And shine your brightest.

So here's the thing... life is sunsets and sunrises; everything we experience is summed up in these two miracles that come to pass with the calendar of days. Life's ups and downs, openings and closings, beginnings and endings. And then, it is all written in the skies amongst the movement of clouds and the spread of palette hues... #pausethoughts

When your night life and day diaries are captured and written in a place like this the pain is numbed and balm applied upon every inflicted wound... When the wonder of Al-Jamea stands before you, the grandeur of the world and the minute details of creation come into the line of thought-provoking vision. The connotations of colour are expressive when evoking emotion... Anguished are our hearts as they bleed in remembrance of that which has come to pass, while filled with love when radiating in the light of sacrifice and devotion. The scope from historical events are relived as we watch history unfold before our eyes... the passion of knowledge seeps into our veins and binds us with unbreakable ties.

Masjid ul Burhani from Al Jamea, Mahad ul Zahra
Nairobi: how far it has come. Nairobi: A city in Afrikiyah has shone. 
A vision. A direction. The ultimate destination. A perspective. A new look. Reread; rewrite; a different version of the same book. This year starts and our presence is in this present - but take a snap, look back at the past from whence this journey began; and the future henceforth to the venture yet to marvel at... just like the bees who collect nectar from succulent flowers, their return is to their hive - we may be blown away by worldly wonders, but with are feet firmly on the earth to which we will return, and our spirits in the sky to where we must from here fly, we return home. Al-Jamea.

Jamea: The pinnacle of education.

May we reach a new found height in academic and spiritual achievement. 
May we honor every providential written and unwritten commandment.
May we bow lower in most humble prostrating servitude.
May we unflinchingly hold pearlescent fortitude.
