Wishing you... HAPPINESS!

It's the beginning of a new year and it is that time of the year when one traditionally exchanges good wishes for the days, weeks and months ahead. It is that time of the year when people reflect on the year gone by, take stock and make resolutions for the days, weeks and months ahead.

At this time of reflection and good wishes, I take this opportunity to wish you HAPPINESS!

I believe that happiness is our ultimate goal. Whether we wish for good health, financial stability, loving relationships, helping others, donating to charity, meaningful and successful work, serving your community, and all the loads of other good things that one wishes for oneself, the ultimate goal is to be HAPPY!

Therefore, to all my friends out there, I wish you only one thing... HAPPINESS. The rest will tag along to achieve this one true goal.

Don't Worry be Happy in 2016!

Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.

He came up with a brilliant idea. He said, “why not separate Jerusalem from Israel and Palestine?”. I asked why, and his response was that everyone claims to own it – Christians, Jews, and Muslims. So, let it be free for everyone. This got me thinking as we continue discussing the various other options on the table and why they’re failing or will fail.
Option “fight to the finish”: Maintain the status and fight to find a winner, hoping that one of them will either be defeated or give up the fight.
We’ve seen that this approach is taking us nowhere. They have been at each other for decades and all we see if more destruction of lives and property, more hatred and bloodshed, people on the sidelines taking sides due to the religious dimension it has taken, a…
