The Land of the Free

Divided we stood. Nola (daughter) alone on one side, and all of us on the other side. Nola was (is) all for Trump, while we wanted Biden to win. M1 (granddaughter) threw up her hands in a victory stance on hearing that Biden had won.

It’s still uncertain whether Trump will accept his defeat. Let’s hope he comes to his senses, and not create further turmoil in his bid to hang on to the Presidency.

Give Him A Break

I have never been a Trump fan. I never wanted him to become the President. However there is one thing I admire: whatever is in his mind – he speaks out. He doesn’t cover up. The long line of presidents before him presented one face, and did whatever they wanted done on the other end. They all have one agenda, and that is to kill Muslims across the world, and finish off Muslim countries. The Crusade is still going on.

The irony is: the Muslim countries abet US endeavors- such as the Saudis finishing off the Yemenis.

If I was in Mexico, and a country such as US was across the border, I would have definitely tried to get there with my family.

If I was the President of United States,I would have tried to curtail the immigrants trying to get illegally into my country.

There lies the dilemma.



I have been solitary since morning. When I got up for morning prayers at five, saw that Son had already left for his job. When I came to the kitchen to make breakfast for myself, I found that there were no used plate, or cup in the sink. This meant Son forego his breakfast, and left without eating anything.

At twelve I got the call from him, saying he had finished early and could I make him a paratha, and omelette? Of course I could. 


He is now getting ready to go to the mosque for the Zuhr prayer. He has told me there is a heavy contingent of police outside the mosque. Till Son comes home I will be worried. I can only say, “We are God’s beings, and to Him we return”.

Trump shows his concerns about the unfortunate, and sad happening in Barcelona, but he is totally unconcerned about what is happening right under his nose. He fans hatred with tweets, pouring on the flames to ignite them further.

Trump has unfurled hate among his neo- Nazi followers. It’s okay to be a racist, and run down immigrants, Muslims, women, foreigners and poor. 

Son told me early at morn when he came back from the mosque from Fajr prayers, that tomorrow ie  on Friday, the Trump bigots are going to hold a rally in front of the mosque. In case you don’t know that from Friday Zuhr (noon) prayers, a Muslim can’t be exempted from not saying his prayers in the mosque.

It’s obligatory (from religious point of view) on Muslim males to say their five times prayers within a mosque. For females: they can say their prayers at home. Many can’t fulfill this obligation due to various reasons. For example they live far away from a mosque, or because of the timing of their jobs, but keeping away from Friday noon prayer is considered a grave sin.

In Texas you can carry firearms, and these supermacists maybe carrying guns. To a mother’s heart it looks scary, so told Son, “Please keep away from the mosque tomorrow”. Son was aghast at my suggestion.

“How can you tell me not to say my prayers in the mosque?”

I can only hope, and pray that at morning prayer it’s too early for the trouble mongers to assemble there, and at noon Son doesn’t get the time from his job, and is not free to go to say his prayer at the mosque.

My heartfelt prayer is for love and peace to reside in every heart.

Verses 85 and 86 from the Quran. Surah (Chapter) 10 Yunus:

فَقَالُوا عَلَى اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلْنَا رَبَّنَا لَا تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ  ﴿٨٥﴾؅

وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ  ﴿٨٦


So they said, “Upon Allah we rely. Our Lord make us not (objects of) trial for the wrong doing people.

And save us by your Mercy from the disbelieving people”.

How can one be pleased?

Are we at the brink of blowing up our beautiful world?

When are the Republicans going to come to their senses, and wake up from their Trump induced haze, and do something to get rid of the menace in our midst?

Please God have mercy on us.

I protest against the attitude of Houston IAH airport where Muslims are targeted for extra screening. I passed through the screening machine where my innards were on display. Inspite that I was patted, and touched on my private parts. This happened to me on the 27th of last month.

Another lady whose head was covered like mine was, gave me a tight smile indicating what we were going through. With arms akimbo like scarecrows the idiots searched our body parts for hidden ? A woman combed me with her hands, and her device, going once, going twice, going thrice, and going for more, while a man continuously wiped my hands with swaps trying to find something.

This is what happens when people like Trump are chosen for presidency. What else is going to happen after 20th January?

What happened to me, and the other lady was done to other travelers, it wouldn’t have mattered. BUT —– they only target Muslims, it’s totally wrong.

It’s disgusting, and demeaning.

Please stop it before I lose my love,trust and respect for USA. Did I move here for good to be treated like scum?
