Lyrics - كلمات الأنشودة

Do you know who makes the sadness go away when life turns its back on you?

أتدري من يزيل الهم إن ضآقت بك الدنيآ

 

And who takes care of you , (and) never forgets you however you live …

ومن يرعآك لآ ينسآك دوماً كيفمآ تحيآ

 

So glory be to Allah who guides and heals one’s confusion

فسبحآن الذي يهدي ويشفي حيرة العبد

 

And He gives without limits in this life .

ويعطي دونمآ حدٍ جزيل الأجر في الدنيآ

 

Do you know who answers man if he makes a mistake in public or or hides it?

أتدري من يجيب العبد أبدى السوء أو وآرى

 

And who gives Paradise and rivers as a reward for charity .

ومن يجزي على المعروف جنآت وأنهآرآ

 

So say ‘O Allah , let me reach the Home of Eternity and safety .’

فقل يآرب بلغني لدآر الخلد والأمن

 

And to solve my problems and let not anyone harm me .

ونفس كربتي عني وجنبني أذى الدنيآ

 

Do you know who guided man and encouraged him to give in charity?

أتدري من هدى الإنسآن بالإحسآن يوصيه

 

And He doesn’t accept you to disobey Him , so look how do you keep disobeying Him?

ولآ يرضى له العصيآن فأُنظر كيف تعصيه

 

So Who do you show the complaints to and beg for the things you desire?

فمن تبدي له الشكوى ومن ترجوه مآ تهوى

 

And where can you find any relief and peace if you not under His Forgiveness?

ومن في عفوه السلوى على مآ

 

…in this World?

كآن في الدنيآ

Dr. Waleed Hakeem 

I am really shocked! I know there are more important deaths to talk about, but there are a few reflections I would like to share that have valuable life lessons for me.

I personally was extremely inspired by Anthony Bourdain's travels, success story, and I learned so much from his travels about what to eat in each country, and learned to be brave in trying new things. In fact, I own his entire collection of episodes and use them as a reference when travelling. He was a chef who was stuck inside a kitchen working long hours, wrote a best selling book in his spare time, and from there, his dunya success was nonstop. His work in supporting Palestinians through his show and humanzing them is just monumental!

Then again, we could clearly see the pattern. Someone who has achieved everything they could achieve in life: fame, money, awards, travels, you wonder, how could someone like this commit suicide? Let's be honest. There are many of us who could only DREAM to have even one-tenth of his life!

When a person achieves everything, they get to a point where they start feeling there is no more bigger purpose in life. There is nothing else to achieve, so they may lose the meaning of life, feel depressed, and take away their life (If you want to protect yourself from this, always find a higher purpose in life. A mission that drives you!)

Believing in an afterlife and a Creator protects a person from many forms of depression, as they live for a higher purporse (although religious people may have depression too for chemical imbalances or from other life traumas, so don't mix both please!). 

We also learn that looks may be deceiving. You may think someone is the happiest person alive because you see them travel, eat best food, have enough money to never work, etc, but deep inside they may feel something else. I personally went through this, where people on my page think that I am super happy because they saw me travel to 100+ countries, but they have no idea how much pain, problems, or suffering I have in my life from other issues that Allah tested me with (and I'm always thankful to Allah for everything, AlhamduliLlah!)

Make time for people. Talk to them, listen to their pains. You never know how many lives you could save when you save someone from depression. When you empathize with their pains! Robin Williams, Michael Jackson, Anthony Bourdain, and many others, remind us that even if you appear to have it all, you may still suffer depression, which is intensified by not having a purpose and not having a connection with our Creator or afterlife. Return to your lord, and seek his help. Especially in these blessed days!

Thank you Anthony for inspiring me to travel, try food that I never imagined to try, and teaching me about other cultures. I learned from you that even if a person is small and unknown, they could work hard to make their message global, not just food, but for a bigger and better legacy. It is sad that even though you have visited many Muslim countries, you didn't find your path to guidance. You are now with your Creator!

P.S I know he used foul language a lot in his shows, and that's really bad, but always observe and see what positive things you can learn from each person you meet, regardless of their background.
