    I know, you will never like me | Humanity

    Not as lonely as you think – I know, you don’t like me.
    Picture by Harunmovsisyan
    Since I was little, you didn’t like me. 
    I don’t know why. 

    You would always say something to hurt me and my parents. 

    Many times did my family leave crying, from your house. 

    At one point my sister didn’t want to visit you anymore.
    She didn’t like it. 
    You would always say something to hurt us.
    She is the oldest, so she understood more than I. 

    My parents had to pay her to visit your house. 

    It’s just me you don’t like. 
    Everyone else you are fine with. 

    You don’t like the way I speak or the sound of my voice. 

    The way I walk. 
    The way I dress. 
    The way I think. 
    The way I breathe. 

    I remember once. 

    It was some time after I had finally finished high school after such a hard battle with many school changes and many teachers who were just like you. 

    My parents were so proud. 

    So were my siblings. 

    The whole family was together at your house. – 
    This was sometime after my celebration. We were talking and you said “That’s not a real high school.” My cousin asked why and you said “It’s just not real high school in my eyes.” – Even when it is. 

    My older sister heard it all but she was scared to say anything, so there wouldn’t be a new fight. 
    Why so much hate? 
    Why so much hurt?

    You did a lot of hurtful stuff to us. 

    But now, before anyone can do it to your children, you stop.  

    You spread false rumors about my siblings and I. 

    Fill our ears against each others. 
    Say you will help if needed. 

    When my sister asked you for help. 

    You didn’t. 

    I know what you are. 

    We know what you are. 

    I know you hate me.

    I know you will always hate me. 

    Just remember. 

    The only reason I see you is because we are family. 

    It is supposed to mean something. 

    Something you haven’t shown me. 

    I am sorry. 

    Sorry for not being perfect. 
    Sorry for you too. 

    – A letter

    P.S. My life is not as lonely as you would think.

    One child cries | Humanity

    The sound of new years is different depending on who you are and where you are born. – Something which you have no control over. 

    On one side we have our children. – On the other side we have those.
    Picture by Starnlyi


    I wrote down how some children are experiencing these times. Here it comes:
    • One child hears fireworks and runs to the window, to watch. – The other child sees from hiding, his whole family get shoot.
       
    • One child cries because of the loud noises coming from the fireworks. – The other one because the soldiers are firing at them.
       
    • One child cries because the firework blew up in his hand. – The other one because he is about to take his last breath, before he is shoot.
       
    • One child cries because he fell from his bike. – The other one because the soldier took his bike at gunpoint.
       
    • One child cries because he doesn’t like his food. – The other one of happiness because he finally found something to eat.
       
    • One child is hospitalized because he was standing too close to illegal fireworks and it blew up on the ground. – The other one because so many of his bones are broken, after being pulled out from under what used to be his home.
       
    • One child cries because his parent won’t buy him the teddy bear he wants. – The other one just saw all his siblings and friends get blown up by a teddy bear.
       
    • One child cries because he does not want to wear shorts. – The other one has been wearing the same clothes for a month.
       
    • One child cries because he doesn’t want to go to school. – The other one because he was late for school and just saw it blow up.

    • One child cries because his parent wants him to get a job. – The other one because he can’t find one, so he can feed his siblings.
       
    • One child cries because he doesn’t want to get vaccinated. – The other one because the hospital just got attacked, where he is admitted.
       
    • One child smiles because his parents hug him. – The other one because he finally got a little water after walking for miles in the heat.
       
    • One child looks at the fireworks with excitement. – The other one wondering if the bombs the plane is dropping, will reach him.
       
    • One child is continuously asking for things he thinks will make him happy. – The other one is dead inside.
       
    It is just another new year. 
    Just another life.

    7 Shocking, amazing, different and broken things… Trip to Pakistan | Humanity

    Pakistani flag
    Picture by Kurious

    This is why I have been so quite the past month.
    I have been in Pakistan for three weeks!

    Oh, and yesterday was Pakistans 69th birthday.
    So, happy birthday Pakistan!

    Yes!
    Three whole weeks.

    No work.
    And in the heat!

    I missed working and the danish rainy weather…
    So, a little glad to be back.

    Anyways, I just came back one and a half week ago.

    I have been so tired and busy.
    So writing anything at all…
    Was too much work for my brain.

    It sounds like I have been doing a lot there but not really.

    1. Adjusting
    I think it was caused by the shock I received by living there.
    My first visit in 13 years.

    Actually, living there wasn’t so bad.
    Doing normal stuff there, like going out grocery shopping.
    That was bad.

    Here in Denmark women can go around doing all kinds of things.
    Right or wrong.
    Not many will care…

    Literately.

    When my uncle or uncles where with us…
    No problem.

    It not like everyone is like that.
    Some respect women a lot…
    Which are the religious people.

    Which is awesome.

    But the not-religious…
    Ew…

    2. Educational trip
    We actually went for educational purposes.
    Yes, in Pakistan.

    What is there in Pakistan?

    Let me just clarify.
    Islamic educational purposes.

    So yea, not much sightseeing.
    And not much time for shopping either.
    Which I was really happy about.

    I did however take some pictures.
    You can see some of them here.

    3. Amazing news

    Graduation: Mufti Imran bin Munir Husayn in the middle of
    the first row. To his right is Mufti Tariq Amin also from
    Denmark.

    One of my uncles became a Mufti on this trip.
    Mufti Imran bin Munir Husayn.

    A Mufti is an Islamic scholar, who is an expert in Islamic law.

    This is one of the greatest titles one can achieve as a Scholar in Islam.

    He is the youngest of my mothers siblings.
    Only in the beginning of his thirties.

    Ma sha’a Llah, may Allah subhana wa ta’ala grant them a lot more.

    The second one is Mufti Tariq Amin, which has studied Islam with my uncle since high school.

    The two new danish Muftis are the first in Scandinavia, if not in Europe who has actually grown up in a non-muslim country, have educations by the “danish state” and choose to study islam.
    In a country, where a large portion of the younger generation has been out “integrating in the danish culture”.

    Amazing.

    He is not only studying but also teaching others, mostly in danish.
    You can check out two courses he is about to start at Islamakademiet.dk, in Danish.

    If you just want to…
    Browse or look for Islamic information then check out Islamisk.dk

    Read some blog articles from him in English and Danish then check out Towards Enlightment.

    Check out the books he has written and translated.
    Just go to Books by Imran bin Munir Husayn.

    Or watch some of his videos, just go to Profetens Vej.
    They are in danish.

    4. A place for everyone

    Big church in or just outside Islamabad, Pakistan.

    All right, you have probably heard…

     1. That all muslims countries are very narrow minded.
     2. There is not place for non-muslims there.
     3. There is a war going on between muslims and non-muslims.

    Take a peak at the picture of the church.

    It is indeed in Pakistan.
    Looking very peaceful.
    Very open.
    In good condition.
    Clean.
    Beautiful.

    There is no sign of any kind of disturbance.
    At all.

    Do I really need to say more?

    This is not the only church I saw in Pakistan.
    I saw even larger churches.

    I am just one of the persons who likes to enjoy seeing things, rather than taking pictures all the time.


    5. Poverty vs wealth

    Wealthy area

    Try looking at the next two pictures.

    It is like two different worlds.

    I know the first one is a living area and the second one are small shops.

    There is such a great gap.
    That it hurts.

    You see so much poverty in the streets every time you go out.

    Poor area

    Fake and real beggars coming up to you.

    It has become a profession to beg for money there.
    I don’t understand how people can get themselves to use that money on themselves.

    Fair enough, there are a lot of poor people who has no other way of putting a little food on the table at home.

    But there are so many who see it as a job.

    You see things with your eyes.
    You wish you could forget.

    For example.
    We were going somewhere and I saw a child.
    He was not even 10 years.
    Pushing a corn trolley, I think.
    In the middle of the day.
    When he was supposed to be in school.
    Learning.

    That broke my heart.

    Why is that ok?
    Why is the government ok with that?
    Why are we ok with that?

    I do not get it.

    6. New buildings

    Another new building project somewhere in Pakistan

    Especially in Islamabad.
    There are a lot of new building complexes.

    And they are not just buildings.
    These are luxurious buildings, where the rich people move in.

    These are not only big apartments.
    They have everything.

    Including guards down stairs.
    To the garage.
    To the entrance for walkers.
    And in the lobby.

    Check out some of these apartments for rent in Islamabad.

    They look like five stars hotels.
    Most of them.

    Mountain in Pakistan

    7. Beautiful mountains
    The mountains are gorgeous.

    The picture is just a small one.
    It is something everyone should go and see.

    They are so beautiful!

    We also have one of the worlds highest mountain.
    K2 Mountain.

    Pakistan is something everyone should visit at least once.

    It is a great experience and there are differently many places to go sightseeing.
