Firstly, I apologise to all those who commented on my blog and didn’t get my reply immediately. I wasn’t able to approve your comment or reply coz I was busyyyy with exams and had a lot of studying to do, and therefore the delay..alhamdulillah..done with it!!
So, folks are judging me based on what they read on this blog.. *ahem* :)
Okay, to clear things up, firstly, this blog was created as an outlet, to let out my emotions and thoughts, which are subject to change as and when they feel like..
Obviously what I’ve written 6 months before may not seem the right opinion now..and what I write now may not necessarily be the same views I hold a year from now..because as with anything, we grow and learn and mature with each passing day.
The words may seem a little too sharp and arrogant for comfort, but that’s always the case with words…when you read something, you don’t read it along with the writer’s emotions, you read it the way YOU feel at that point of time..
Unfortunately words and letters don’t carry emotions. When you hear the words, things are totally different.
Therefore, although some posts of mine may seem to be a little too arrogant, that most certainly is not the case. I’m assertive, yes, but I’m not arrogant.
A post may seem angry, but is most certainly not what it is, because when I do get angry, I don’t sit and type..I don’t talk..and I most definitely do not publish posts for the whole world to see, when I’m angry…I remain silent (Prophetic way..that’s right) :)
The posts may seem a little too over-confident for comfort and may even look egoistical, but it is not. Those who know me on a personal level know that I and ego are faaaaaaaar apart. Ask those small group of friends with whom I share a close bond and they’ll swear that I don’t even know how to boast.. forget about being egoistic.
I may seem to be a little too outspoken, but meet me personally and I will not utter a word more than what’s required and might be a little toooo silent for comfort. Just because I speak so much online does not necessarily mean I voice my opinion and tell I’m right and every other person is wrong when you meet me in real, I DONT!
Leave me in a group and you’ll hardly hear my voice..making it almost seem like I’m an introvert. Fact is, I’m just not that comfortable with opening my mouth and speaking on just about anything and everything. That does not mean I’m an introvert. That just means I take a long time to socialise. :)
I may have a different ideology from you, but that does not mean I don’t respect your ideologies or differences. That’s how we humans are made, end of the day. I will respect your opinion if you believe so, and will not interfere and will even listen to what you have to say (if you are in a state of authority over me, and that includes parents and spouse ONLY). I would obviously listen to those in authority because my Lord has commanded me to, and I DO NOT question Allah’s hikmah and go like the so called “liberating feminists” who say they don’t need to listen to men.
I DON’T do that, because I don’t question Allah’s commandments. So when Allah (swt) says “Listen to your parents and obey them”, I do it. When my religion says “You have to listen to your spouse and obey him”, I will obey. Of course, as long as either of them don’t force me into shirk, I will obey them. Naturally, if I’m forced into endorsing shirk, I don’t have to listen to either of them and that again is Allah’s order..not my own.
You need to know me on a personal level to really know what and who I am. Reading a couple of posts will not do the trick. There’s a reason I’ve kept settings in such a way that I personally monitor each comment before approving them. :)
I know..I owe this explanation to no one..but because people, and more importantly strangers, are judging/might judge me based on some stuff they see here, its always better to clear things up and not let the Satan to interfere in between :)
(Why is this post filled with smilies, you may ask..because I didn’t want people to think I’m angry while posting this…that’s why!)
Salam Folks! (Peace)
