Get Well Soon

Salam fellow bloggers,
Last week a very dear friend of mine fell into a coma because of a libyan medical mistake. In 2001 she was diagnosed with Lukiema, and alhamdulilah she fought it and became cancer free in 2003. She has been weak but healthy ever since. Last week she got a cold and her throat hurt her, so she went to the doctor to get some medicine. the doctor gave her some tests and concluded that her cancer was back. he treated her and she didn't respond well to the medication, hence she fell into a coma. Her family took her to Germany on Friday, suspecting that the Libyan diagnoses was wrong. And indeed it was. her cancer WAS NOT back. and now she is paying for the doctor's mistake.
May Allah cure her and bring her safely back to family and friends. she is 23 years old. She is a medical student who has one more year to graduate. her final exams start in less then 2 weeks. she is a fun and energetic girl. she is on all our minds.
So i ask all of you, my fellow brothers and sisters to pray for her and please don't forget her in ur dua'a's.
Last night at around 4:00am libyan time, all her friends (around 100) prayed kiyaam layel for her. I too joined in and will not stop the kiyaam untill she gets better. so until i hear that she is awake, i plan to pray kiyaam everyday and i ask of you to do the same.
Inshallah ya rab yeshfeeha wa isabir ahliha.

wa salam.

My Father and I

I came across this piece in one of emails.
Always be grateful for your father

Me and My Father
وأنا عمري 4 أعوام : أبي هو الأفضل
When I was 4 Yrs Old : My father is THE BEST
وأنا عمري 6 أعوام : أبي يعرف كل الناس
When I was 6 Yrs Old : My father seems to know everyone
وأنا عمري 10 أعوام : أبي ممتاز ولكن خلقه ضيق
When I was 10 Yrs Old : My father is excellent but he is short tempered
وأنا عمري 12عاما : أبي كان لطيفا عندما كنت صغيرا
When I was 12 Yrs Old : My father was nice when I was little
وأنا عمري 14 عاما : أبي بدأ يكون حساسا جدا
When I was 14 Yrs Old : My father started being too sensitive
وأنا عمري 16 عاما : أبي لا يمكن أن يتماشى مع العصر الحالي
When I was 16 Yrs Old : My father can't keep up with modern time
وأنا عمري 18 عاما : أبي ومع مرور كل يوم يبدو كأنه أكثر حدة
When I was 18 Yrs Old : My father is getting less tolerant as the days pass by
وأنا عمري 20 عاما : من الصعب جدا أن أسامح أبي ، أستغرب كيف استطاعت أمي أن تتحمله
When I was 20 Yrs Old : It is too hard to forgive my father, how could my Mum stand him all these years
وأنا عمري 25 عاما : أبي يعترض على كل موضوع
When I was 25 Yrs Old : My father seems to be objecting to everything I do
وأنا عمري 30 عاما : من الصعب جدا أن أتفق مع أبى ، هل ياترى تعب جدي من أبي عندما كان شابا
When I was 30 Yrs Old: It's very difficult to be in agreement with my father, I wonder if my Grandfather was troubled by my father when he was a youth
وأنا عمري 40 عاما: أبي رباني في هذه الحياة مع كثير من الضوابط، ولابد أن أفعل نفس الشيء
When I was 40 Yrs Old: My father brought me up with a lot of discipline, I must do the same
وأنا عمري 45 عاما : أنا محتار ، كيف أستطاع أبي أن يربينا جميعا
When I was 45 Yrs Old: I am puzzled, how did my father manage to raise all of us
وأنا عمري 50 عاما: من الصعب التحكم في أطفالي، كم تكبد أبي من عناء لأجل أن يربينا ويحافظ علينا
When I was 50 Yrs Old : It's rather difficult to control my kids, how much did my father suffer for the sake of upbringing and protecting us
وأنا عمري 55 عاما: أبي كان ذا نظرة بعيدة وخطط لعدة أشياء لنا ، أبي كان مميزا ولطيفا.
When I was 55 Yrs Old: My father was far looking and had wide plans for us, he was gentle and outstanding.
وأنا عمري 60 عاما: أبي هو الأفضل
When I became 60 Yrs Old: My father is THE BEST
جميع ما سبق إحتاج إلى 56 عاما لإنهاء الدورة كاملة ليعود إلى نقطة البدء الأولى عند الـ 4 أعوام .
Note that it took 56 Yrs to complete the cycle and return to the starting point 'My father is THE BEST' !
فلنحسن إلى والدينا قبل أن يفوت الأوان ولندع الله أن يعاملنا أطفالنا أفضل مما كنا نعامل والدينا.
Let's be good to our parents before it's too late and pray to Allaah that our own children will treat us even better than the way we treated our parents .
قال تعالى:
' وَقَضَى رَبُّكَ أَلاَّ تَعْبُدُواْ إِلاَّ إِيَّاهُ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا إِمَّا يَبْلُغَنَّ عِندَكَ الْكِبَرَ أَحَدُهُمَا أَوْ كِلاَهُمَا فَلاَ تَقُل لَّهُمَآ أُفٍّ وَلاَ تَنْهَرْهُمَا وَقُل لَّهُمَا قَوْلاً كَرِيمًا '
' وَاخْفِضْ لَهُمَا جَنَاحَ الذُّلِّ مِنَ الرَّحْمَةِ وَقُل رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا'

New Libyan Passport Regulations.

Good morning to all fellow bloggers. (Libyan and non Libyan)
Last night i came upon some very disturbing news. It was announced "unoffically" that anyone that does not have an Arabic translation in their passport is not permitted to enter or leave LIBYA! For Libyans its the other way round. the page that has the english translation on it has been deleted. Some torn, while others were just crossed out. This has caused some very big problems. This so called regulation was made over night and was forced into action. it has left hundreds of Libyans stranded in airports all over the world, because, now that the English page is not valid, many airports don't recognize it anymore. same for the non Libyans. they cannot leave or enter libya, at least for the time being. Ok, this is very weird. Why the hell would anyone in their right mind make such a decision and on what bases? (the matter of 'who' i will leave for u to figure out). its the most ridiculous and stupid thing i have ever heard. ya3ni if the Libyan government is gonna force this new 'law' they should at least give notice to the people. a lot of passengers were left stranded in the airport, more specially on the plane because their passports didn't have the Arabic in it, even though they had valid visas. this is very troubling for US Libyans who live outside of Libya. how are we to move around? ok for those of us who have dual-citizenship our other passport will help us, but come on, how about those who don't? Our president didn't think of that before he imposed such a rule. this is gonna leave Libya cut off from the world, even after it made it clear before that it was making changes to become part of the world. it is the ONLY country in the world who has such a rule. Libya has done this once before(2005) but it was never enforced and later it was just canceled.... The ambassadors of every country to Libya , and the international press is trying to shed some light on this, yet our government isn't available for comment. come on, we all know that they are stuck. WAT THE HELL ARE THEY GONNA SAY IN RESPONSE TO SUCH AN ACT?

Libya on Tuesday confirmed it will turn away Western visitors to the north African nation unless they provide Arabic translations of their passports. "Libya will not reverse its decision, nor will it take into consideration the int'l reaction" and uproar triggered by the new restrictions, a Libyan official told AFP. "The West demands that we translate our passports into English and therefore we must act in kind. It is only normal," said the official. [AFP]" ok its not normal to do what u did, oh Libyan government!....English is an international Language.
It is not yet clear as to what is going to happen next. Travel in and out of Libya has come to a complete stop, until further notice, or until they cancel such a law. this is one of the most ridiculous things Libya has done so far. Libyans have enough to handle as it is, they don't need more to worry about. businesses that have work with countries overseas will have to stop, because NO ONE CAN LEAVE! they cant leave cause no country will take em...
I hope that this is sorted out really soon.
please make dual for our fellow Libyans whose businesses and liveleyhood have been affected by this.
Inshallah I need to be in Libya in January for my exams. this is graduation for me, and oh god please not make it hard for me. I myself am a dual-citizenship holder, but just the same, travel will be difficult.
(what i have written above is what i think. for sure there is more to the story so please click on the links below to understand it better)
so please my fellow Libyan bloggers, spread the word and let everyone be aware of this.
يا رب فرجها على اليبيين فى ليبيا و خارج ليبيا
