Saying of the Imam Ali

قال الامام علي :لا تثق في شمس الشتاء…

و لا في قلب النساء…

و لا في الدنيا فإنها دار الفناء…

ولكن ثق في اخ لم تلده لك أمك …

ولكن ولدته لك الأيام…

فإذا كان اجمل ما في الورد الرحيق…

فإن اجمل ما في الدنيا الصديق…

Do not trust in the winter sun …

And not in the heart of women …

And not in this world , for it is the dwelling of dissolution …

But trust in a brother not born from your mother …

But who bore him the days …

Because If what is most beautiful in the rose is the  nectar …

Then what is most beautiful in this world is a friend …

Now Seven Things about myself

I can’t eat onions

when I get nervous I say really stupid things

I have a sensitive heart

I suck at fighting

I always support the country I live in

I tell people I’m five feet ( I’m really 4’8′)

I have never dyed my hair!

 Thank you to all my followers and friends and who ever likes my poetry if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have the courage to write!!!!

I love You All 🙂

 

 

 

Ode To A Friend

an ode to the one

friend who

never held through till the end

that one single person

Dandelions-2
Dandelions-2 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

who gave up on you

who turned his back

and walked all over you.

If not for him

you would’ve never

known

that true friends stay strong

no matter the scorn

rather it be vicious intent

or malice justice

life has offered

you in return

a promise of knowledge

will soon  be learned

that no matter how

golden dandelions seem

they end in weeds

that choke their prey

with hidden treason

leaching off their wealth

just to leave

when all is drained

and extinct

never a goodbye or farewell

just slithered away to something new

to start again

the only thing they do.

True Friends

This is a saying of the Imam Ali (a.s) I wrote it in arabic and translated (roughly) in English. If more of His teachings were to be translated, Islamophobia would not exist. In this saying Imam Ali speaks about the most important thing in this world.. Friends who stick by you no matter what, Friends who love even though you are  a nerd that secretly wishes she was wonder women. (who me?!?! nah)

Friends you have to pay to read your blog : $90-$200

Friends who read your blog for free and enjoy it: priceless.

Thank you for reading my blog and to all my followers and who ever likes me I love you all! Live Long and Prosper! (You know you like me just a bit right?)

(قال الامام علي
..لا تثق في شمس الشتاء
..ولا في قلب النساء
..ولا في الدنيا فانها دار الفناء

..ولكن ثق في أخ لم تلده لك امك
..ولكن ولدته لك الأيام
..فإذا كان أجمل مافي الورد الرحيق
.فإن أجمل مافي الدنيا الصديق

 

Saying of Imam Ali (AS)
Do not trust in the winter sun ..
Nor in the heart of women ..
Nor in this life, for it is the place of perish.

But trust in the brother  your mother did not bear
But the days bore for you ..
for the best of the roses is the  nectar
And the best of the world is a friend.
