Steering in the new direction!

Some brothers have asked me why I haven’t posted my thoughts about the political uprisings and on similar topics lately. I have noticed that too, most of my posts lately have been related to Islam.

You see there comes a time in your life when a lot of things happen to you very quickly and all those events folding in your life direct you to a common realization. Probably you have experienced that! Something like that has happened in my life.

Freedom Flotilla: Humanitarian Aid to Gaza is a Sin and Crime against God

The stormed ship (Mavi Marmara) was leading five other aid ships and had solidarity activists, aid leaders, and journalist from different countries aboard. At this moment there is no news as to who is dead and wounded. 2 Pakistani journalists [video] are among those missing and one of them is Talat Hussein from Pakistani AAJ TV, a very critical, outspoken and respected journalist in Pakistan.

Eid Mubarak and some thoughts

So yea, its been quite a while since I wrote any thing on my blog. Since I can’t think of any topic to write about due to the tight time schedule and other activities, I would say Eid Mubarak to my readers.

May Allah accept our Qurbani, fastings and prayers of these days of Nahr and yea Hajj too for those who were fortunate to perform it.

Now adays I am in the delimma and that is whether to move my blog to WordPress or not. However, I won’t disappear all of a sudden, my facebook Fan page will remain the same “The Key To Power.”

Wassalam.
