what is love

Found this in my email drafts.. from 12/9/2006. I never did send it to Pink.. but here goes.


Pink dearest,

What is love?

"Love is never having to say you're sorry." :p naaah..that's from an old, old movie 'Love story'.

People always think that love is what they feel when they are first get attracted to someone.
But actually when you first fall for a person, what you feel is awe and excitement - most people term it as 'a crush'. SOMETIMES it develops into love.

Love is something much much more than just excitement and awe, or a crush. Love is when you are willing to sacrifice for the other person's happiness.

Then there are the levels of love.

The lowest level is loving for your own sake. You love him because he makes you feel happy, or give you material stuff. I shall not dwell on this further.

The mid level would be loving him for who he is, but still for your own sake. A condition for this love is that, the other person must give you some level of happiness.

The ultimate love is love lillah (for the sake of Allah SWT). When someone loves for the sake of Allah, they are willing to sacrifice for the other person's happiness, without much concern about their own. When this happens, the lover, I truly believe - will not suffer much damage, when the love is not returned appropriately or worse betrayed.

we are our own

E : it's amazing how we are shaped so differently by everything that's happening around us and to us, and therefore, nobody can be like another person, simply because we all hv our own experiences that shapes the way we think and look at things.  so we will always be us.

H : If the value of an object is measured by its rarity and uniqueness, then each and every one of us is truly valuable..

Yes, i love it. So true...

the 3rd time is for real

I feel like a drunkard at work today. Sent an email, with the wrong attachment.
So I resent the email with subject "... with correct attachement", and STILL attached the wrong file!

I had no choice but to send the 3rd email, this time with the correct file attached. And to differentiate the earlier email, I indicated in the subject ".... with correct attachment, for real".

I hope the recipient didn't think I was trying to be funny.

My Name is Khan

I actually don't normally watch Hindi movies.. but just now, someone turned on 'My name is Khan' and so I sat to watch.

It's good, it's touching.. it's long. But it was okay.

There were some scenes which were not logical - and reminded me of Forest Gump movie..
but it's okay.

Overall, it's heart warming.

And about him, being Muslim, marrying a Hindu lady.. well, there are some scholars who believes that Hindus are People of the Book also.. so wallahu'alam.

In fact, I hear that Hindus, they do have a main book that teaches man to believe in One God, and not assign partners to Him.

Allah guides whom He wills.

Okay not a real movie review.. just my thoughts after watching it.
