Though these are my thoughts but they can be wrong, if so you only have
to prove me wrong. May God free the world soon.


Afghanistan war

Assalam u?Alekum all :) I had a discussion with some good people, what
happened in Afghanistan was definitely not good, but they were given the
opposite idea about the war, hey this is fair to people, creating
another version of inhuman thoughts in the world. People wake up your
minds are being controlled using propaganda. At the same time many
things were not really their choice like the children being bombed etc
thanks to NSA for planting more extremism. After all this at ordinary
level a version of extremism was created around the world where people
would hate each other. But the fact is all this got successful because
all of us forgot the boundaries created by God and thus learned to
justify our thoughts and actions depending on situation.

You see people (no matter who you are) if you really are people of God
and God is on your side then you don?t need to fear anyone and remove
any future problem against you. The reason being it is your attitude
that will save you from problems, learn to find out why other people are
against you if they are speaking the truth then correct yourself, if
they are wrong then just let them know. Difference should be accepted,
as even in a family two brothers would never think the same. But learn
to be merciful and learn to be just, learn to forgive and learn to let
go, learn not to fear anything else but the unhappiness of God.

May God show us the right path and have mercy on us all :), may God end
the days of bad guys and their mind control over humanity sooner.
