Life Story, Long or Short
« on: August 05, 2002, 10:28:39 PM »
As A Kid

Around age 10 I had a few bad teachers and started having problems at home.  I started to think that I was ever going to be shit in life.  I never developed any picture of what adult life could be like, I just knew I didn't want to be an alcholic like my dad.  

Jr. High

So I just played basketball, chased women, listened to music, and ran around all day with friends.  My jr. high years I truly believe were as fun and exciting as anyone elses, anywhere.

High School

Then highschool, friends and girls started changing for the worse.  So I latched onto this one girl I felt was better then all the rest and figured if I could be with her, then I could have a happy adult life.  After we broke up, I couldn't get over her.  

College Dropout

I wasn't getting any smarter, and my life was just heading downhill chasing after a girl I would never be able to truly work things out with.  I was failing miserably in college, just like I'd done in highschool.

Rock Bottom/Conversion

Then I hit Rock Bottom at 18.  I was at work one night and I sat down for a second and was overcome with an engulfing state of depression, that left me paralyzed.  I couldn't move, I didn't want to move, I didn't ever want to get up ever again, I just sat there, on the clock, doing nothing, in a complete daze, not wanting to live.  It's curious and ironic to point out that in this moment of complete hopelessness, only then did I finally have the courage to make a change I'd thought about making several times before.  And in that moment, I converted to Islam.  (Although not technically until I performed Shahada)  

Early Days As A Muslim

So I'm a hardcore Muslim for 2 straight months, mosque every friday, trying to convert friends, praying 5 times a day, the works.  All my friends pay it no mind and I feel all alone and alienated in my religion...

More Failure

so I try to figure out a way to be a Muslim and still blend in with everyone else.  I run into some more problems in life trying to start a computer business at 19 with a guy who I'd later find out was completely dishonest.  I began to lose all respect for the people in my life.  I lost some of the college money my grandmother saved for me in the business.

Retreat/ Starting Anew

I retreated back to my parents house fall 2001, to save money and try to get my life back on track.  I didn't want to hang out with any of the people in my life and I ended up spending most my time reading books, studying Islam, and hanging with ya'll on the internet, here at the WCC.

The Present

Now it's 8-5-02, I'm 20, close again with all my old friends, I'm cool with my family now, I'm doing very well in college 30 hours completed and a 3.0 GPA.  I'm out of my parents house, on my way to getting 60 college hours so I can substitute teach as a part time job.  I'm slowly running out of my grandmothers college money because a couple weeks ago I got fired from my nightstock job, and I don't have much motivation to start working again.

Who Knew

I guess things are good, just not what I would have ever expected in my life, I would of never predicted any of this.  Peace.

AS A KID

Born in Kuwait, grew up there in a nice neighbourhood. Pops was making money, i was being educated in a private school.
Saddam sends his army into Kuwait while we're driving into Kuwait. Kinda sucks seeing Tanks pass by you.  Anyways we drive from Kuwait into Iraq (Airspace closed).  Have yall ever slept in the Iraqi desert? Yall should try it. Then we drive to Jordon where we live in utter poverty. Pops scrapes some money and we fly to Canada.

JR SCHOOL

Played sports and developed a sense of humour, developed my personality and gained some self confidence. Met alot of people Im still very close with. Went on vacation to Afghanistan after grade 6.

HIGH SCHOOL

Fuck, I ran my school. Had fun, fucked girls, drank, smoked weed, chilled, hung out, met aLOT of people.

And now Im counting down the days until Sept 3 when i start University.

So theres a VERY BRIEF outline of my life.

Uniquely impressive life story... It's admirable that you've seen all the sides of the cultural sphere, and you should feel very blessed for that.  

You've seen the highs and lows of the Western and Eastern World, and through it all you've came out a very smart, strong, self-assured, articulate brother.

 

There will be those that close their eyes, and plug their ears with their forefingers, and later swear upon their Holy Bibles to have seen no evil and heard no evil.

It was not by coincedence or by accident that you were placed into your unique position on this Earth.  Your childhood was in preperation of fullfillment of a plan far greater then yourself.  You were blessed with the oppurtunity to biuld with the older cats in your hood, and understand a side of life that those you would encounter later in your life, could only imagine.

It may be that Allah at first granted you respite in your new home at Hicksville, a brief interval of fun and excitement, before the suffering you would later endure.  And while under this protection from Allah you came to an understanding that life was to be enjoyed and that you had a place in this life.  Although the attitudes of others would later frustrate you into questioning your previous understandings and aspirations in this world.

It appears that in highschool, the brief and narrow vision of your Hicksville peers was incapable of understanding another student who grew up a little different from them.  In an effort to ascribe to their alien standards of behavior, you tried to take on their pretentious, self-effacing way of life, but found that path to repulsive and disgusting to continue.  You were therefore left with no choice but to go without the friendship and even the respect of your peers.  Sometimes we are placed in no-win situations.  In these situations, we must not see these  fragments of lives truths and equate them as the total sum of our existence.  The scope of Allah's plan is much larger then this, and be patient, because later his plan will be fully developed and actualized.  Be humble in your struggles, for Allah is preparing you for the fullfillment of his ultimate plan.  And there is justice in His will and plan.

Here you describe your true nature, your inclination to the God that created you.  The religious urges that exist in man should not be recognized as a mere passing phase of one's intellectual, moral, and physical development.  But rather, it should be assimilated into his character, and made the ultimate source of all his thoughts, actions, and concepts of morality.

Brother El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X) once said, "I think it is far greater a crime to teach one to hate himself, than it is to teach him to hate someone else."  You became angry, and you had been taught to turn the other cheek against those that transgressed against you, in doing so, the blade of that anger was turned inward, this self-hatred often takes the form of a death wish, with many elusive manifestations.  The death wish, is really a wish to control ones own destiny, a deeply emotional desire to dictate your own existence, and no longer be living to act out a play in which your part was not written in the script.  To no longer be at the mercy of the wims of another.  

Although Islam gives an allowance that the victim may transgress likewise against the transgressor, in many ways you were up against a faceless, and amorphous oppressor.  Therefore, the only solution was to have patience and faith that Allah's plan would be fullfilled and that those pretentious, self-effacing, narrowminded upper class snobs in hicksville, and the various social agents of American society that put you in a no win situation, will not go unpunished.  Patience is learned from fasting, prayer, faith in the God that created you.

Understand that the struggles you've encountered at a young age were not imagined, and that you were not created in vain.  There is a great purpose in his grand design for you.  Understand that you are not mediocre because you are great because the God that created you rules high above, and has a like unto none.  It may be that you will find hope one day in your hopelessness, and you have already succeeded and you are already great for surviving through your life struggle and still staying true to yourself.  

May the peace of Allah be unto you.  1 (God)

Tom cheer up man.  Why stay all depressed and feel sorry for yourself and dwell on the past.  Ain't a damn thing you can do about the past.  Just forget it and move on.  Concentrate on the now.  Of course your never going to change if you keep the attitude you have.  Do what the fuck you want to do in life.  Do whatever the hell makes you happy.  Don't give a fuck what anyone thinks of you.  You constantly complain about your town- so fuckin move man.  Why would you stay in a place that you truely hate.  You say you don't have any friends, well go to college man, it is a great place to meet many people.  You got to change yourself dude, ain't no one gonna do it for you.  Your life is all up to yourself.

Yo Tom, dogg keep your head up, your biggest problem is you have such a negative attitude to everything, I understand what youve been through, but thats the past and you cant do shit about it.  All those negative thoughts will just contribute to the problem and your subconcious mind will try to make it happen.  The future is the only thing you have the power to mold, and your making the future right now.  So do sumtin man, have a positive attitude towards life, persue your dreams, have sum big ambitions etc...you need to have faith, talk to yourself, if you continue like this, your gonna ruin ure future as well, peace

No.  I don't think it was said in jest, Trauma intentionally tried to discredit my brother Tech, and Trauma can only imagine the things Tech has seen first hand, so he's in no position to speak!!!!!!


No, unfortunately, you speak without reading.  If you had read the other thread, Tech was making the point that afgani's have been opressed, so in their mind, us civilian deaths are alright, because they've seen what they regard as the christian western world attack THEIR civilians.  I thought it was a good point, when people are attacked, they naturally don't think clearly; so in their mind, they think it's alright to kill civliians, because that's what they perceive the u.s. is doing to them.

Since Tech shared his life story, I was surprised to see that he doesn't actually live in Afganistan, so all the things he was mentioning means that he doesn't have an excuse to support u.s. civilian deaths (Not saying that he does).  Sorry I was speaking on a higher plain than you, I'm sure tech understood it.

Tom cheer up man.  Why stay all depressed and feel sorry for yourself and dwell on the past.  Ain't a single, livin' life and minglin' thing you can do about the past.  Just forget it and move on.  Concentrate on the now.  Of course your never going to change if you keep the attitude you have.  Do what cha want, what cha want to do in life.  Do whatever it is that truly makes you happy.  Don't mind what anyone thinks of you.  You constantly complain about your town- so then move man.  Why would you stay in a place that you truely hate.  You say you don't have any friends, well go to college man, it is a great place to meet many people.  You got to change yourself dude, ain't no one gonna do it for you.  Your life is all up to yourself.


Yeah, I agree pretty much, but remember, he probably can't move right now.

I think people need to eliminate negative things in their lives.  Can't is a negative word.  He really can move.  If he had the mob threatening his family's lives if he didn't move, do you think he would say he can't move?  All my life people, especially my parents, tell me "you can't do this, you can't do that, you won't be able to, no no no, it can't be done, it's too hard, it's too cold, it's too fill in the blank."  Even if no one has faith in you, you gotta have faith in yourself.  What if Colombus just listened to everyone that said the world is flat and he can't travel across the sea.  We might not be here in America today.  You can almost anything you want in life.  Don't ever not do something because someone tells you you can't.  Prove everyone wrong.  It will help in your struggles and it will help you fight for what you want to do.

Yeah, LOL Drank, Did Girls, Partied, Smoked Weed.  That's Maturity?  Please.  I won't argue my own maturity, that'd be a little immature.  


I'm sorry Tech had more fun and got more props in highschool then you did.

Muhammad son of Abdullah was the seal of the prophets.  And as far as Tech goes, a Muslim wants for his brother what he would want for himself.  And although Tech is younger then me, I do look up to him.  He is my brother, and I would follow him if he needed me.  It's an Islam thang, you wouldn't understand.

Tech cares very much for his family in Afganistan.
