I don't consider myself a pure soul nor perfect. I'm sometimes totally disgusted by my sins, I try to be better, I wish to be better, but let's face the truth; humans can never be perfect. I hate myself because it's my criteria to hate someone who disobeys Allah, I don't hate others and try to warn/advise them. But I hate and treat myself with extreme measures. If I'm hard with you, I may already be hard on myself. Hence I know what kind of person I am. I am no different than anybody else.
I saw the construction of my house. There was just a plane plot full of mud, and within few months a house was built on it. I observed things, the material, the working, everything actually. There was so much imperfection in everything. We see someone or something and wonder how perfect they're, but actually they're not. There's so much imperfection in the actions and personality traits of humans. The only one Who has perfection, in His working and self, is Allah. You will never find a flaw in His creation, in the nature He's planned.
When the floor of my house was being worked on, I observed how imperfect the working was, but at the end they hid every flaw with shaping and styling. There's so much imperfection in our actions, believe it or not but it's true. My words are of course just my observations, and indeed Wallahu Alam (And Allah knows the best). By my views, it helps to understand and accept others, I have flaws, so it's not wrong to marry someone with flaws, some of us seek perfection in people but that scenario isn't going to be realized. I used to do it too.
I always point out myself, my faults, in my writings. Because I'm a sinner myself, I judge all of us as one, including me. Some people take negative meanings to my way of talking, but indeed Allah knows my intentions. Every writer has another and unique way of expression. I wanted to be a role model, but can't. Hence I...https://plus.google.com/+AhmedmacNorthowed/posts/h3GsPqrfQGA

We people are too mean. We always need a reason and reward for every action we do against our assent. Take the obedience and love of Allah as an example, we strive to do good deeds just to enter heaven, we don't do it just because we love God, that it wouldn't matter if we'd end after this death, that we'd still obey Him as long as we exist.
I envy those who love Allah so much and Allah loves them back, it's natural, that when you love someone, then naturally you don't want anyone else to be loved by them. He loves us all, but He has to punish us in order to uphold justice and teach us a lesson, it's what our parents do too. I started having failures in my life, then I started to realize that Allah can make things happen, yes I was a muslim then too, but not a practicing-one. I started praying to Allah for making things happen, life started getting more worse and I worked more hard to make my relation with Allah more better.
Day by day, I started to change, I started to develop very rare skills and people started to wonder how could a boy of such age could do all that. I didn't know how I became like that, until I realized the one who blessed me with all that. Whatever I'm, it's because of Allah Subhan-Tallah! I first used to pray for getting things in my life, but then I realized that Allah chose to bring me towards Him, that I'm so fortunate that He wanted to test and train me.
In Maths and Physics, we're given problems to solve, and they enhance our learning and experience. The same thing happened with me. I started to see the world from another view, I have a mind I don't deserve, I've changed a lot. Allah did this all, He is the one! I sometimes think that I'm so unfortunate that I couldn't achieve my aims, but I forget all this that I just talked about. Now, I just don't pray when I need something. I pray even when I'm satisfied, just because I love my God, I can... https://web.facebook.com/ahmednorthowed/posts/1827247440728521

A clear message/advice for both genders:
There are people I know who text at random numbers to find a person of the opposite gender, in order to chat with him/her. I consider it totally immoral. I first used to think that men are making women a victim, but I was half-right, because women these days are willing to play and be played, they enjoy these things too. Both genders have gotten equally involved into such vulgar things, it's common for them to chat about immoral stuff with the opposite gender, especially random strangers, they are actually deceiving their parents' trust.There are sisters who lie to their parents, just to find an excuse to meet or talk to a guy. There was a time when people could confidently say that their daughters are pure and their character is crystal clear. But now no one can.
Our parents have actually failed to control the new generation. Hence I recall what Quran said "good men are for good women, and good women are for good men. Bad men are for bad women, and bad women are for bad men". Same is the case here. Dear sisters, I feel for you, I have great respect for you, but now I see you ruining your lives with your own hands. You're choosing your bad end, wake up before it's too late. Control yourself and don't let this society take over you. I feel bad when I see Muslim women into such things, I do my best always to guide and educate them, men too. But I feel more for them, as they deserve a position according to Islam, which men don't. May Allah keep the good people safe from the spoiled ones, and guide the bad ones. Ameen.

I personally believe that internet and social media are making us sin, I think liberty incites us to do wrong. Many of us, like me, have strict family customs and it's not a common thing for us to have friends from the opposite gender. But on internet, almost everyone has them, because our family logistics don't apply here anymore while they should have. We are free here, no one is there to tell us if we're wrong, our parents don't know how many online accounts we own and with how many people we communicate and who. So this thing has brought rise to online friendships which eventually leads to the destruction of basic morals. You can't say that the other person won't know or see you, it's not just about that, it's about logics and limits, no matter who knows and watches, because Allah does. Whatever I'm saying is fully verified, you can deep study and observe, you may find it real if you do it properly.
I remember when I first talked to a person online from opposite gender, it happened in about 2014 as I remember. I first felt hesitation and my reason of interaction was to spread my cause forward and gather handful audience, this has always been my reason to communicate with strangers online. But then with time, I started to feel no barrier to opposite gender interaction, whereas in real life I have maybe never talked with such frankness to any woman, even with my cousins. But internet covered me with it, it helped me interact. But now as I'm growing up, I feel that it was a mistake to do that, because today I expect to have a spouse who may have never done that, but I've done it myself. Approach things with a free mind and you may see their impacts on your life. You may think that everyone does that so it's normal, it's what society has become, but you're wrong, because it's not what you have to become.
Interaction with the opposite gender... https://plus.google.com/+AhmedmacNorthowed/posts/3342iKbDW3t

I remember the time when I was used to writing amazing content, full of spiritual energy, all the day through my laptop and then post them online. I loved socializing, especially because I was using my skills and energy to bring some positivity in this world. Yes most of times I stayed sad, because I couldn't achieve much, even after working so hard. I even gave up several times, but I knew from inside that it was temporary. I have been working for my cause since 2013-2014. It's been almost 5 years, I've been through a lot in this time. Allah knows everything, I can never thank Him enough to be on my side and put me on the right track always when I'm lost, without Him I'm nothing. I'm living a very busy life now, I seldom get enough time to pray properly and put my mind into His remembrance.
That's why I'm never going to be satisfied with this life, because it makes me go away from the things I love and desire. Yes, there are many too who can cope well with this life and maintain a balance in it, maybe I'll learn that too with time. But still I deprive of spirituality in my life right now, some things are missing but I don't know what they are. I have experienced that in the end no one does support or believe you but Allah. These all thoughts sometimes create a mess in my mind. I felt that I had a mission, that I'm born to do something great, I can't bear the pain of others, I can't see injustice happening. I want to eradicate the evil from this world, but it seems so impossible.
I have started from zero, I don't know what will happen next, I'm just trying to move by keeping faith that Allah will provide me with a direction. I'm His servant, at His mercy, His follower, and also someone who wants to be His friend. I'm a profile on offline state, whenever God wants me to do something, I shall activate and Insha-Allah do it. Allah knows... https://plus.google.com/+AhmedmacNorthowed/posts/Gsx7WGWaPgm

I'm not a person I used to be. I have changed. I'm not the person with the same thoughts and aims. I am an ordinary human being. My aims are now impossible to achieve. I don't feel the pain of other's anymore. I have lost a lot, maybe lost the most precious element of my self. This isn't all, I have lost my spirituality too, now I'm moving without any direction and I'm still confused if I'll and should live for myself only or for my dreams/aims of doing good. Everything is so dismaying for me. Maybe I don't deserve to do all the things I imagined. Maybe I'm not suitable for that. I am a sinner who can't repent by doing great things. I may be unfortunate, but I'm not sure yet. I can't predict anymore, I'm all awaiting-eyes now.

Almost a year ago, I wrote about how we're becoming a slave to the system. Today I shall talk about the same thing with advance knowledge/analysis. System is enslaving us, it's snatching away our thinking ability. We have no time to think, plan and enjoy. We strive to earn and build castles, in the end we're still not satisfied. We have chosen to live with a system that was actually made for robots, those souls which don't have emotions.
Teachers these days say that education is everything and without it you're nothing, they're right, but not completely. Education is trained/sharped knowledge, people used to study books for that purpose, then people started to feel difficulty in it, so they chose a teacher, because a skilled person who has already learned that specific thing can teach you well with practical applications. Then world progressed, educational institutes came into existence, governments realized that public needs education to move towards advancement, so they started to provide them with basic education for free.
Day by day more solutions got recognized, and now this is the current era we're living in. There are different angles of everything, there are pros and cons. I'll also talk about education here because someone has requested me to mention few important things about our educational system. It is observed that our books are rough, in Pakistan, they're not being updated with the modern time. I have heard that many books, which were revised in 2005, are being taught to the intermediate (college) level. This is actually equals to wasting time, students give their whole day to study and they mostly get to study things which are totally irrelevant and too old to apply/comply.
World has progressed a lot, but... https://plus.google.com/+AhmedmacNorthowed/posts/FKh5matNhYm

I'm unable to give proper time to my social media accounts these days, I'm getting more involved into life. It's unfortunate that people have started unfollowing/unliking me. I have got at least 100+ collective unfollowers and unlikers at Facebook, Instagram and AskFm in just few days. Maybe people believe that my work and passion have no value. Maybe that's my worth. Anyhow, it's not a big issue to stress about. I deliver as I can, it's upto others' fate if they get it's benefit or not. I may stop one day.

I want to earn that much so my wife won't even think of earning. And if she would, then I could be able to employ her under me. I'm deeply impressed by brother Maher Zain in this case. He is so popular but still nobody knows anything about his wife. I want that too. Allah knows how I want to treat my wife, I'll not cage her, it's just that she'll have a great importance in my life. I wouldn't want her to work and face the cruelty of this society, may I absorb all of her worries and bring comfort to her. Marriage is a name of responsibility, we all have to answer Allah how we'll treat our spouse.
So Insha-Allah. May Allah help me. Ameen.

There are many reasons why I hate modernity. People can call me a hypocrite, because yes I'm strict in many matters, it's okay if someone hates you for trying to be a pious person. I know I'm not perfect, I know I commit sins and have so many flaws, but that doesn't and shouldn't stop me from trying to be better.
Modernity is the root of the demolishment of our culture. Islam has boundaries, a normal mind would understand that everything should be done under a limit, hence the boundaries of our religion are the necessity. But modernity has coated people's minds with the ability of crossing these boundaries and not feeling the guilt. It's become so common now for men to hang out with na-mehram women, it's become so usual for women to appear with open hair in public. Yes you don't see any bad in it.
You believe that everything you do is right as long as you think from inside that you're not a bad person. You're totally wrong. You are going onto a path which has no positive end for your success. Whatever rules I apply, whatever I do, it's for myself, I can't force anyone except those who are under me, who are my responsibility. So I don't tell you to live like me, but I shall share how I live and manage life, because there are many people who seek practical solutions. My strictness is just as godliness. It's normal these days for a person to have been into few relationships before marriage. There's no guilt anymore, there's no sign of shame. Hence I fear this society, that it may spoil me too. There are a number of reasons behind these things, but the truth is that no one is willing to change or even care.
The people who care, they find a way to save themselves. Others just keep going with the flow like a dead fish. Believe me when I say... https://plus.google.com/+AhmedmacNorthowed/posts/Qq2SDXzR9m5

I'm feeling a little incomplete these days. It's like something is missing from my daily life and making it more dry than ever. I am not finding enough free time to gather thoughts and write, there are many ways to live and I think that our system has already planned everything for us, it's like we have no choice at all, follow it or do fail trying what we desire. I know no one has the time to read something online, still I write because I write to release my caged spiritual energy. I'm moving without any direction these days. So many tangled thoughts in my mind, so many unanswered questions, so many so many things. I'm not finding my satisfaction points in place, it's like they all just disappeared and my life's car is moving in the neutral gear waiting to be shifted. In the end, nobody cares. I couldn't understand life, but maybe I did; that life is irregular, you can't predict the possibilities.

What is secret of happy relationship?

There's no eternal happiness in any of worldly matters. Get married and start compromising. There are ups and downs, that's life. Hold up to your deen, always ask Allah for guidance and add the element of succes (means Quran) in your life. There's not any easy answer to your question. Remember one very important thing; if you are in a haram relationship, like having a girlfriend or boyfriend, then remember that you can't ask for Allah's help into those matters, because He doesn't support the haram. That's the reason why most of such relationships don't end well. The relations whose base is immoral and forbidden, can't grow at all. Hence add the elements of purity and moralistic values in your relations. May Allah guide and help us all. Ameen.

Calling yourself hot or sexy isn't cool at all. It's just like you're objectifying yourself. It's totally immoral. It means that you call and recognize yourself as lust material, someone who's the lust of others. Do you not feel uncomfortable while saying or receiving (as a compliment) it?
Where are your senses? Where are your ethics? Education had to open your eyes nor blind you. No one can force you to do the right, it's totally upto you, but now you know that it's not accepted by Islam, so if you do it, then you are actually disobeying Allah. Salam and Peace.

For students of every age: Our first aim should be to learn and clear concepts. When you go to a school, college or university. Your first focus should be in learning and building yourself. You should understand every topic, it's okay if you don't memorise the deep points and complex theory. The main attention should be in gaining the knowledge nor marks. The first step of education should be to teach, obtaining grades and position depend upon your extra efforts and hardwork. But that shouldn't be the main focus of your life, topping every position is good if you're interested, but it shouldn't depress you. Your main reason is to learn and develop. With this idea you can definitely pass every subject, this is what will be required in the future, in your practical life. So be an obedient, extraordinary and hardworking student if you may, but don't waste your energy in cramming or topping while you can learn and gain knowledge. May Allah help all the students, I know how hard it is to deal with daily educational routines and system.

Sometimes you don't love anyone, you don't love the person with whom you think you're in love. You are just unhappy or annoyed from your life or environment, you seek a person who is good by your definition, you just want to be loved back, supported and cared about. You want someone who's really there when you need them. It's impulsive for a human to do that. We ask for someone who understands us completely. This thing mostly happens when we're feeling down and having depression or any other kind of tension/stress.
I know how hard it is under those circumstances, I often go through them, but don't let yourself sink in. We should open up to someone, in some cases it's okay to open up to a stranger who doesn't know you at all. We should pray, give time to Quran, talk to people about our interests, relax and live, rest, sleep and take a bath etc. We're not machines, we don't need to live fast and not care about ourselves. We need to do those things too which please us. It's not right to just long for success and earning money. Peace and satisfaction are important. May Allah help us all find a stress-free life and bestow us with internal peace and a good life. Ameen.

I'm getting a little depressed these days. I'm losing the interest and joy to live. There are some factors which make me weak and stop me from living a peaceful life. I think sometimes all you need is a person to talk to and share things with, someone special and someone who understands you completely. I believe it's a big blessing to have such a person in your life. Unfortunately I just have myself, hence I try to express myself into words and share things online, expressing yourself is a very difficult but important part. Keeping things to yourself and not share them with anyone can make you go mad and crazy. I ask no one to read or hear what I say here, I just write because it's my requirement.
I don't know if I can express myself or not, I don't actually know how to calm myself down. I pray and I'm trying to work on building my interests, but I'm getting stressed and not finding enough time in a day to enjoy or make myself feel good by doing what I like. I believe fast life isn't a life at all, I don't like humans working like a machine. I believe a human needs rest and enjoyment too, I believe the basic reason of the life of a human is not to earn. What's the benefit of earning if you don't get to live comfortably? I am tensed. I wake up early, I go and study, I come back and get only a very limited time to relax, and then I have to study again and prepare myself for tomorrow.
The things that a human should be able to do on daily basis: taking a shower/bath, reading some stuff or watching something informative, have a joint dinner/lunch with family or friends, sleep well for at least 7-8 hours, eat in peace, get some time for carrying out personal hobbies etc. But are we able to do that? At least I'm not and I see this scheme going in for the next few years. So I don't have anyone, I don't know how to help myself. Thus I'm getting depressed. Do pray for me if you can.

You inspire a lot of people, I know you want to do more good other than just writing. I shall pray for you. Send a message to your fans and those who have made you their inspiration and the source of positive energy. What's the output you would want to see in them which would make you happy?

Alhamdulilah and Jazakalah. I'm not that high on spirits, and not many people like what I write, but still those who do; I'm thankful to you all. Yes it's true, writing and posting isn't everything that I wanted to do, I have aims and plans, but nothing is possible unless God wants it to happen, so I seek His will and permission all the time.
I just want to say one thing to those who read and get any kind of spiritual energy through my words, that if you can help someone then never stop yourself from doing it, never miss a chance of doing something good, take every chance while you're still alive. I'm not a great person, and not even satisfied with what I do in the name of goodness, but still I try my best and I know it, I have tried hundreds of things but faced failure, I know Allah didn't want those things to happen, so now I do accept and move on. But still I do my best and I want everyone to do their best too.
I believe individual efforts are ineffectual after a limit, like if I start a campaign myself and feel that I can run it and I don't need anybody's support, then I'm wrong. Whenever I told someone to join me, they said "I have a blog of my own" or "I have my pages already". But the truth is, they don't even reach an audience of few thousands. Strength is always in the unity. So I want people to let go of their ego and start working together.
