well it's good that you're happy because you're a Muslim, I'm happy also because I'm a Keetoowah Elder of the Tsalagi people.
I have the most Passionate and most Merciful God :
My Creator is a very understanding and forgiving Spirit also.
If I am sick he cures me
If I am hungry he sustains me
If I need help he provides it to me
If I am afraid he is my refuge
My Creator has been gracious enough to give me the knowledge and ability to be able to do all of those above for myself and to be able to pass that knowledge and abilities on to future generations.

And above all this he is ready to forgive me
I have done nothing for my Creator to have to forgive me for.
Believe me this is what he told me :
"Oh son of Adam ! do know that as long as you are asking for forgiveness I will forgive you for all your sins and I don't mind
Oh son of Adam! if your sins reach the sky then you ask me to forgive you I will forgive you
Oh son of Adam ! if you come to me with sins equalling the soil on earth then you believe that there is no deity but me I will give you the same amount forgiveness ".
I have no Prophets, have no need for them, I communicate with my Creator personally.


Besides to that our prophet Muhammad peace be upon him taught us that all what happens to us , believers in God , is good :
If it is a gift we thank God the Generous
If it is a bad thing we try to be patient
And in both cases we will be rewarded
My Creator, is gracious enough to bestow upon us certain gifts of which we are thankful for and we respect that with our celebrations.


I know that what's mine will never be taken by someone else and thus I am at ease and not at all afraid.
In my culture if somebody needs something that bad, we will give it to them as a gift and I have no fear of anything.

I know that my work can't be done by anyone but me and thus I am doing it by myself.
I know that God sees me and thus I am doing my best to be as He likes to see me.
I know what is waiting for me , paradise or hell , and thus I am getting ready to that day.
It is good that you are doing your work on your own but it never dishonors oneself to ask for assistance whenever needed. I too know what is waiting for me in the next world and I have been prepared for it for quite a few centuries.


My life is a journey...
we all have a journey through this life.
This world isn't mine...
Paradise is...
this world doesn't belong to any of us and paradise is not guaranteed.
So I am travelling to reach my destination.
Continue your journey and you may reach your destination.

How about you ?
are you happy ?
Are you at ease ?

I hope you are so

I love you all for God 's sake
Don't be shocked because in Islam love is an act of worship.

Bless you all






Yes, I am happy and I am at peace with my Creator and my Creator is very pleased with me.
