The Last Messenger ﷺ of ALLÂH ﷻ said,

Whoever amongst you sees an evil, must change it with his hand; if unable to do so, then with his tongue; and if unable to do so, then with his heart, and that is the weakest form of faith.

Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence.

Henri Frédéric Amiel

  1. Silence can be as damaging as actions. I am glad to see that Malcolm X was referenced although I do not agree will all his words, I do admire his will to want to change matters for the better. Also, I like the new look of the website.

  2. A beautiful and heart-breaking poem, leaving me with sadness. A bit ashamed on my sofa, with my husband and sons by my side, in a safe and democratic country, filled up with my own life. I am silent. Your words are filled with power and hope. Brave people like you can make a change with honest words and love. That is my hope.


  3. Dear Rabab,

    First, You are very very much missed!

    Second ba2a, You know I’m not very much a fan of poetry but I love reading yours and actually try to understand and “feel” it too and I do enjoy it. You know what? I think this poem suits Masr!! I got that feeling reading it 🙂

    Keep on writing my dear friend, I wish you all the best.

  4. Ah! If only you could walk a day in my shoes
    And see what I see, feel what I feel and all I had to lose

    Heart Touching words! Missing you heaps ♥

  5. AsSalaamu Alaykum,

    Really touching – though I’m a highly optimistic guy; but it’s true, when your loved ones give silent treatments, it really hurts.
