Sudanese Nostalgia

I can see how lazy, unproductive and short-sighted we are..!!

That Khartoum was built by British and Egyptian, not Sudanese..

Stop Dreaming, Nostalgia and Don-Kechuotism..!! 

Free yourselves and your kids, and sail with them to the Future, if any..!!


Omar Abdullah - Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir (28 Jan 2014)

In recent three occasions, Stephen Sackur had loudly echoed the Western unilateral definition of Democracy.. He had used all professional means to elaborate his beliefs, intimidate his guests and spread a global fear.. 
Certainly, he is a high profile media professional with long experience and respect; yet the unilateral definitions are the true conflict between the western domination and the rest of the world..
On parallel, he had proved short in-depth realization of the "others", culturally and politically; which became a stigma on all Western researches, up to the academic analysis..

First Kiss

This famous photograph had made a history for kissing..
Certainly, it is not about the First Kiss; which none of us would forget.. Despite how kissing became part of today's public scene in many countries, it stills provoking modesty and privacy among many people..
This is why, none of the known religions had accepted this action to go public..
The symbolic kiss at the terrace of Buckingham Palace is only a Western Royal ritual which was initiated by French lawmakers few centuries ago, as part of procedures to preserve and maintain the integrity of Royal Bleed..

Certainly, I don't endorse any kissing among strangers or even engaged ones, as it is an intimate act; only justified within the wedlock.. However, I understand how the are the definitions are fluid these days..

Contrarily to the spreading urban culture; there are few acts which would build up the intimacy and consensual relation among any married couple.. Sharing the "First-Time" experiences is something unique and amazing; which regretfully many young ones irrevocably miss and lose..
The below experiment has documented, despite the pre-script, the humane sensational shock, growth and engagement..

Understanding or Confronting 4:34

This post was inspired by Feminism in Faith by Zainah Anwar

If anyone opens up the text of the Holy Qur’an and leafs through its pages until reaches chapter 4, which is titled “The Verse of Women,” and continues on until reaches verse 34, will find the following proclamation:

“Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance — [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.”

الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللَّـهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ وَبِمَا أَنفَقُوا مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ ۚ فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّـهُ ۚ وَاللَّاتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَاهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي الْمَضَاجِعِ وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ ۖ فَإِنْ أَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلَا تَبْغُوا عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيلًا ۗ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ كَانَ عَلِيًّا كَبِيرًا

the Muslim scholar and Boston University professor Kecia Ali, in her discussion of the verse and the translation, Ali points out that the three most controversial words in the verse, “qawammun” (previously translated as “guardians”),
qanitat” (previously translated as “obedient ”), and
nushuz” (previously translated as “disobedient”),
Must all be left untranslated.. These words require interpretations


Simply, artistically and Technically; Marvelous..!

Urge or Love..?

After 60 years in life..
I have an issue which I can’t comprehend..

Across regions, cultures and histories..
Men abuse women; later they share the same bed..
Women hate men’s aggression; later they share the same bed..
It seems all is about mating..

By any means, this is not love..
Simply, a great irresistible urge to mate..

Later; they breed new human beings..
Produce many of them..
Then; we question underscoring and terrorism..!
This is why the women empowerment programs fail
Anti-domestic abuse fails..
Birth control fails..
Anti-Trafficking fails..
Anti-Child-labor fails..
Anti-FGM fails..
Anti-poverty fails
Then, the overall development fails

I’m Confused..

The true story is less than 10 minutes..!!
