Inspired by a true story, this film is about an itinerant Depression- era carpenter who is declared an unfit parent because of his financial situation when his wife dies. Fighting against the legal system of the time, he struggles for eight years to regain custody of his four children.
A special post….
This fall is rebirth
This scar is revival
This pain is rejoice
Only if you are mine…

When we dream alone it remains only a dream; when we dream together, it is not just a dream…..it is the beginning of reality.

This sub-category draws its posts, spirit and inspiration from Seema Aftab (aka Seems) who is a valuable member of our community.
The blog, collections and posts by Seems are our guiding light and true compass.
On the authority of Abu Harayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet (PBUH) said: Allah the Almighty said:
I am as My servant thinks I am (1). I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assemble better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.
(1) Another possible rendering of the Arabic is: “I am as My servant expects Me to be”. The meaning is that forgiveness and acceptance of repentance by the Almighty is subject to His servant truly believing that He is forgiving and merciful. However, not to accompany such belief with right action would be to mock the Almighty.
It was related by al-Buhkari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah).
“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
From Muhammad, Messenger of Allah to Haudha bin ‘Ali.
Peace be upon him who follows true guidance. Be informed that my religion shall prevail everywhere. You should accept Islam, and whatever under your command shall remain yours.”
The envoy chosen was Sulait bin ‘Amr Al-‘Amiri, who after communicating his message, carried back the following reply to the Prophet ﷺ, “The Faith, to which you invite me, is very good. I am a famous orator and poet, the Arabs highly respect me and I am of account among them. If you include me in your government, I am prepared to follow you. ”
The governor then bestowed a reward on Sulait and presented him with clothes made of Hajr fabric. Of course, he put all those presents in the trust of the Prophet ﷺ.
The Prophet ﷺ did not accept Haudha’s demand. He usually turned down such peremptory tone, and would say that the whole matter was in the Hand of Allah, Who gave His land to whoever He desired. Gabriel later came with the Revelation that Haudha had died.
The Prophet ﷺ , in the context of his comment on this news, said: ” Yamama is bound to give rise to a liar who will arrogate Prophethood to himself but he will subsequently be killed.”
In reply to a question relating to the identity of the killer, the Prophet ﷺ said “It is one of you, followers of Islam.”
[Za’d Al-Ma’ad 3/63]
If I keep from meddling with people, they take care of themselves,
If I keep from commanding people, they behave themselves,
If I keep from preaching at people, they improve themselves,
If I keep from imposing on people, they become themselves.”
[Attributed to Lao-Tsu]
Personal happiness is so important, most choose to let someone else take care of it.
