I am so blessed


I Am So blessed

I am so blessed

Being a Palestinian

Being a refugee

For over fifty years

I am so blessed

I wasn’t in the tank

With an army uniform

Killing and destroying

To frighten people away

It was a barren land

Later on to say!

I am so blessed

Being under curfew

For most of my life

I am so blessed

I wasn’t with the army

Erecting high walls

Shooting at civilians

At every check-point

I am so blessed

Losing my father

In one of their raids

I am so blessed

That it was not I

Flying planes of terror

Firing that missile

Then Laughing and rejoicing

The mission was a success

I am so blessed

Watching my brother

Being taken away

I am so blessed

I wasn’t one of those

Kicking till he bled

From his nose and head

I am so blessed

Burying my baby

With a bullet in her heart

I am so blessed

I wasn’t that soldier

Who took a baby’s life

Nor was I his mother

Who welcomed him a hero

When coming back home

I am so blessed

Sleeping in a UN tent

Shivering in the freezing cold

I am so blessed

I wasn’t that settler

Who occupied my home

Justifying massacres

With a “PROMISE SO DIVINE”

Then, tossing and turning

 All night long

Wondering what’s wrong

Haunted by his deeds

Searching like mad

For a long lost peace

Which he can’t find

I am so blessed

294646_394995967234110_805017022_n 

 Holding David’s stone

In my little hand

I am so blessed

I wasn’t giant Goliath

With mass-destruction might

Seeing himself invincible

With no hope in sight

  1. We, English, Americans, Russians, French and Chinese stole your land and gave it to the Ashkenazi Bolshevik Jews and the Zionists!
    And, we, Atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Saudis, Collaborators with the Devil, Secularists, Humanists, Feminists, Marxists, Socialists, Capitalists, Communists, and Bank Gangsters do not want Palestinians to ever be free because we have a GREATER PLAN to rule the entire world from that stolen land!

    But, as Muslims say, God is the Greatest of all Planners!

        Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi ta’ala wa barakatuhu!

        I do not know your age, but it is now up to the young Muslims to carry the banner of Islam. My job is almost done on this earth.

        As Maher Zain says, we have only ourselves to blame.

        Keep the faith and DO THE JOB for the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and be true to your name AHMAD!

    • DEAR SISTER MJ

      FOR A FACT, ALLAH SUBHANAHU WA TA’ALA IS NOT SATISFIED OF THE UMMAH OF MUHAMMAD, peace and blessings be upon him.

      But, I am so happy to hear from you. Maher Zain has made me cry and cry and cry so much of despair as well as of happiness. At my age I am getting over sensitive.

      Yes, we lie to ourselves.
      We consume like mad people.
      Yes, we have become individuals without souls.
      And, everyday I am walking with my head lowered in shame because of what the Ummah has become, not because of the West or the enemies of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, but because of ourselves.

      I am struggling very hard to try and teach my grand daughters Islam in a heavily westernised, hostile and aggressive environment, and I pray everyday for Allah to protect their hearts and Imân. A purified heart is the only solution to our problems. The good news is that I am never alone and help from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala comes in mysterious ways.

      ALLAH subhanahu wa ta’ala is definitely not satisfied!

      Barak Allah Fik
      Yours Brotherly

  4. ‘BA’ – grow up! Stop generalising about entire groups of people, many of whom, like myself, have always supported the Palestinians. (Even when many supposed Muslims turned their backs on them.) It is too bad you felt the need to take a beautiful, spiritual piece of writing and use it for your own political ends. I doubt you’d be exactly happy if someone grouped all Muslims together as ‘We the terrorists’, and so on. It’s attitudes like yours that help make peace so very, very difficult to achieve between people. The fact that you had the arrogance to preface your ignorant remarks with ‘We …’ speaks volumes about your hatred and lack of humility and real wisdom about people. Just more political cant and hatred, designed to make differences between people. Again: the fact you felt the ‘need’ to post it underneath such a beautiful piece of writing, only underscores your own lack of understanding. Nahida, thank you for a truly wonderful piece of writing.

    • “Fiona”: ‘BA’ – grow up!

      If I grow more it will be high time for daisies to grow over me!

      By the way, I am not here to compliment Nahida or anybody for their “beautiful piece of writing”, I leave that job to the likes of you, my dear.

      If you know nothing about the RESPONSIBILITY of Muslim men, I mean REAL MEN, within the Ummah, then you better read a little about Islam before writing absurdities.

      I am not here to CRY over Palestine! There is a Judeo Christian Crusade started a long time ago against Muslims, Islam and Arabs. Some ten years ago, I learned from the mouth of Christians themselves that a whole army of 40 million Crusaders were ordering Washington to go to war and destroy all Arab countries, destroy Islam and Muslims, in order to hasten the coming of their Satanic Messiah we call the Anti-Christ or the Dajjal and be raptured by Satan himself.

      Recently, I heard from other Christians that they are 70 million Crusaders in the US alone! And they are running freely in all occupied Muslim countries, militarily, politically, economically and otherwise. Two of their prime targets are Indonesia and Nigeria.

      ” Nahida, thank you for a truly wonderful piece of writing.” This is good for pre-puberty girls to write, but not FOR MEN! So, please, have some respect.

      I have known infiltrators on Palestinian websites to do exactly what you are doing right now because you are not stupid. Iqbal Tamimi will tell you what I mean!

      My arrogance, ignorance??? Do not worry, you did not distract me at all by your uncharitable attacks. I love having some fun sometimes. And, I refuse to understand anymore or to grow up! Funny that it took “Fiona” three days to thank Nahida, for that “truly wonderful piece of writing”!

      One advice: read books, my dear!

      LONG LIVE AL-QUDS (THE WHOLE OF PALESTINE THE HOLY)!
