Jaihoon’s selected tweets from 2017. Last updated May 18 2017
Wishing for a wish the way it should be wished will make the wish vanish to a Reality
Technology-driven beeps, rings, alerts and notifications have colonized our already ruined hearts.
Ramadan is right time to submit to Lord our bucket list of wishes with zero hesitation, since, the only limit is the size of your checklist.
The fabric of Human relationship is woven with the gentle thread of gratitude
The month-long affair of abstinence can automate certain repetitive acts of worship, which may kill the thrill of the Holy Ramadan
Theologians say Iman, Faith, is a 24/7 phenomenon for the Believer. While that sounds spiritually romantic, there is a hidden danger of men and women falling into the trap of familiarity and thereby losing the spark in the ecstasy of Faith.
Ramadan is the conscious swim against the mechanizing tide of our formulaic life
May Ramadan be the re-humanizing experience for our mechanized minds
Denial of truth coupled with arrogance – both of which are misdeeds of the heart- are grave sins in the eye of Allah, perhaps greater than killing or robbery.
An intellectual sin is more evil in the sight of Allah than those with our hands or feet.
Ramadan is the month of Quranic quotient
Even as Quran insists on the triviality of this earthly existence, it has set aside considerable verses, among others, detailing the distribution of inheritance, a matter which apparently has zero spiritual significance
While the Compassionate Lord has exempted young children from obligatory prayers, including the dawn prayer, our kids are forcefully ‘evicted’ from their beds as early as 5am! They sacrifice their sweet sleep in the name of the sweet-coated torment called ‘education’.
Children are children until the age of seven, at least. If Lord has exempted them from His worship, then who are we to torture them with studies?
Do our children have the time, and energy, to pick up social and moral skills after they reach home? Experts need to come with answers. And parents need to pray!
True Compassion should be color and race free. Only then does humanity attain its true meaning.
The content of today’s religious media is more theatrical than theological
Religion has not seen a greater calamity than Religiotainment, i.e. entertaining the senses at the expense of soul.
The beginning of this universe may be vague and controversial, but its ending is ultimate and absolute
The ruthlessly democratic Angel of Death, unfortunately, does not differentiate a saint from a simpleton
Death is as much or a degree more truer than Life itself. Mercifully, Death can only erase our bodily existence, not our life purpose. And that is our moral score over its annihilating force.
The highest aim of every life should be to strive to become the most original, i.e., to elevate oneself so high that no other soul is capable of reaching its greatness, in order to welcome the Angel of death with an assuring smile.
It is intention which transforms the mundane to the divine. Action is the rose. Intention, its fragrance.
Faith is beauty. It has to be presented beautifully as well.
This is the age of clash of ideas. Military aggression cannot guarantee sustainable results as much as an intellectual or a cultural onslaught.
There are wonderful dreams and beautiful realities in life which cannot be reduced to numbers. Life is quintessentially about quality, not quantity
Muslim blood, honor and freedom have become extra cheap, especially in traditional Islamic countries than in non-Muslim ones.
We need Allah for our dreams to come true. We need Him again to enable us again to thank Him and show our gratitude. For, thanking Him for the blessings is as important as having them.
Ramadan is that magnificent marathon in which Men and women run that extra ‘spiritual mile’ to win His Pleasure sans any leisure.
If the men were to get an individual reward for their fast, the home-making women may be receiving the reward equal to the number of the pampered men in the household.
Home is the abode of that ‘invisible injustice’ where tyranny reigns without a court hearing or media trial.
If we fail to restrain home-grown tyrants, then we will continue to face oppression from the State-borne despots and terrorist outfits
We need to start seeking pardon from the children at home first before all others. Children and their innocence are the source of all goodness from the Heavens
Humanity is the celebration of Allah’s creative glory and magnificence. And Ramadan is the time to celebrate it in full color and vigor
Every manufacturer has a right to recall or dissolve its products. The ultimate ownership of a thing rests with its Maker. #Death #Destiny
A painter does not have to justify why the painting was trashed nor a poet to rationalize why the poem was torn apart. We generally call it a wrong only if one harms a thing which belongs to someone else.Verily, this whole universe belongs to Allah
GOD is not bound to justify His majestic justice to befit the the logic of our subjective reasoning.
Our salvation is by His Mercy alone. Hence, the last thing you want to ask for is His justice!
Hate mongers take note, don’t mess with Medina, the city of love and compassion.
Having completed the transformational 30th days of refrain and restrain, the challenge for the Ramadanian candidate is now to re-live the that culture of generosity and piety.
It is Man’s love for the impossible which raises man higher than the angels in the spiritual skies.
Our worry of future uncertainties is partly driven by our futile certainty of a long life

Love is that ruthless robber who will loot and rout your sleep & friends.
Take lovers’s words neither lightly nor literally. Laws of land don’t apply to the insane.
Nowhere does the fragrance of freedom smell as sweet as when within the walls of prison.
Only the wounded will know the joy of healing. Alhamdulillah.
Love can afford to have very few friends but may attract lot many enemies. #Love #Dervish
