A Letter To My Son ./ Contentment Is An infinit Treasure.

My dear son : always  remember contentedness is a treasure that never cease . l didn’t  give you a lot but l gave you all l have . l always met my obligations towards your needs so you have a decent life. My life’s experiences l was assiduous to teach you everything l know. I shielded you from the cold and shaded you from the heat of the sun.l and your mother gave you Love more than anything else. We spent countless and sleepless nights when you were a little baby and needed  a heart open surgery . You became first in our lives.The pain , the tiredness we endured with hope ,patience and prayer.You were healed and became a new. l watched you grow up every step along the way.l tried not to miss Parents – Teachers days. l was eager to ask you about your schooling and your grades. Mom drove you and your friends to the sports practices and games , always on time not even once late. Remember those tennis and soccer days ? l taught you to follow a straight path in life. To be good honest with yourself and towards the others too ,but not to a point that you hurt yourself.

l was affirmative to help you to have a happy childhood . Even l looked forward toward your future so you won’t have any bad memories or regrets of the past.When you were in High – School  ,during college days , you became my best friend . l treated you as an equal to me .Dad is another word for Confidant , Mentor and true friend.

l didn’t collect treasures of gold.You and your sister became our treasure and our gold.More precious than anything this world can offer.Even more important than anything  in life l achieved.When l see you kneel and repeat the prayer l taught you since you were a little kid.l feel my massage l have fulfilled.Now when l watch you raise your own kids following the same path you learned ,l am content.You and your sister became our heaven on earth.The Ultimate  Happiness is to raise decent off- spring.

S i n No More !!!

They brought to him the adulteress and said.”Our law punishes her by stoning her to D e a t h ,what do you think teacher.?”

” l say to you ,who among you is without sin let him cast the first stone.” All of them dropped their stones on the ground and

left her alone standing in front of him.” Where are your accusers .? ” He asked her .”They left.” she answered.

“”Go then in peace and sin no M o r e .””

There is no more profound wisdom than this ,even if we search every  Past and Present religious and philosophical book.

M i n i m a l i s m !! / H e d o n i s m .

“”What ‘s  in  it  for  me ?”” This is the modern motto in the lives of the many.Its the core of their beloved creed in which they b e l i e v e  .

( 1 )   They seldom care about someone or love someone , even their closest relative or  their next in kin. Yet they expect everyone to love them including those whom they resent and consider them enemies.

( 2 )   They refuse to help , pity or be kind towards the others.Yet they demand passion and loyalty from everyone.

( 3 )   The minimal intentionally they do to keep their jobs.To get paid even double the time every check. Yet they want everyone to work hard to earn his pay.

( 4 )   They don’t want to get tired . They insist  on having time out . they want to enjoy their vacation too.Yet they hate  v a l i d i t y .But they try to impose it on everyone else.

( 5 )   In their schools the minimal they do study and the minimal duties they perform . Yet they want to get high grades to graduate with honor degrees.But they hate to see the achievers succeed.

( 6 )   They don’t respect their wedding vows or their responsibilities .Yet they want their marriage to work out miraculously ..

( 7 )   They never exercise .They hate sports.They never watch their diet .They eat every thing .They even enjoy their two drinks.Yet  they expect to be healthy and physically f i t .

( 8 )   They never pray.They never show any humility.Yet they want to enter paradise with souls that never acknowledged there is God or there is infinity.

( 9 )   H e d o n i s m   is  the beloved character in our times for the many ,those who  despise morality.

( 10 )   H e d o n i s m   in   fact  is the demise and the dissolution of human decency .

( 11 )   Minimalism is the real  e n e m y of excellence ,progress , and prosperity.

( 12 )   Minimalism is a deadly virus .Its the source of  M e d i o c r t i t y .

( 13 )   Minimalism is a philosophical disease in the recent human history.

( 14 )   M i n i m a l i s m    and   H e d o n i s m   are the new doctrine for those who are extremely liberal .Their permissiveness is corrupting the very foundation of the new generation.


Jalal and his Oud ( Arabian Mandolin )

((    My Oud  ))

( 1 )  You were a mysterious world  with 12 strings.

l was fascinated by you, and infatuated  how you sing ?

For years life’s concerns kept my dream  asleep,

Within me it was alive ,like a bird growing his wings.

Then l saw you in that window ,

My heart jumped out of my chest.

( 2 ) Waves of rhapsody in my veins occurred ,

Many full moons practicing l did spend .

Slowly l began unraveling  every scale’s aspect.

For four years musical notes l drank and ate.

( 3 ) My Oud eventually became my best friend.

When l am troubled or even stressed  ,

l hug my Oud with tenderness and caress ,

l and my Oud we have mutual love for each other and respect.

D r e a m s !!! / Sincer Devotion .

“” Buying a Piano doesn’t make a person a pianist.Having a Child doesn’t make a person a Parent.””

Having a dream is one thing .Trying to accomplish it, is a different task.The many try but only the few succeed.Without sacrifices and determination dreams can’t become a reality. Without learning the A B C a person can’t learn how  to  read or write.
