Everything is haram he says stubbornly.
It is the exception not the rule.

To live the way you feel is like
Feeling the way you live
As if life was some tangible thing
Our chemical imbalances push us to the brink
Where its a long way down but with the wind
On our backs we think , poor 'rational' thing
Jumping, flightless bird for a moment our intellect
Is dense pulling us to the ground at a speed calculated
Not by us , because our hardware is dated
Circa Adam and Eve and these newfound apps
Upgraded till we crash , these self running
Machines don't run very far at all
Our life becomes these huge fizzes of joy
Before clouded in our own smoke we burn

Alcohol and intercourse.
Moderation they say, one unit
But our bellies desire for three or more.
Enjoy life it's far too short.
Tell that to him as he limps
With a swollen leg, no roof on his head
Tell him it is only a drink
Tell her as she shakes at the thought
A little clump of flesh clings
Two strikes and your out
The stability of a relationship
Is marked when you rock the boat
The trepidation in her eyes because
It is all a little bit of fun .

Perhaps they are exceptions too
But humanity means for myself as for you
I cannot look them in the eye and say moderation
I cannot ask why did you jump
When we paved the path to the edge of the cliff
I cannot risk their souls
And we must accept that these limbs
Cannot fathom that much control

If the Son of Adam had a valley of gold, he would desire another like it...

They ask you (O Muhammad ) concerning alcoholic drink and gambling. Say: "In them is a great sin, and (some) benefit for men, but the sin of them is greater than their benefit."
Al- Baqarah

Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that ye hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, ye know not.

And do not come near to adultery, for it is a shameful deed and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)” al-Isra, 32.
(Islam forbids everything that leads to the sin too ,to make it easy on us . We are not told to not fornicate and then allowed to dress indecently in public and be flirtatious . This is the wisdom behind many rulings they aim to protect us for all the things leading to major sins this is part of the way the Shariah Law is derived  Allah knows best)


  1. Wow, wow, wow MashaAllah this is so true. Thinking of the consequences is tough, but living in the moment is simple, just letting yourself go, "just for a little while", but one thing leads to another and before you know it, you have placed a burden upon your back that you weren't ready to bear, but at the time it seemed as if everything would be okay...after all it was just one drink, one night, one horrible decision.

    1. We spend so much time being emotional when we need to be logical and so much time blocking out our heart to listen to the falso 'logic' of our misguided heads. When it comes to Allahs ruling firstly we never read about them until we are disobeying them and then secondly we don't sit down with an open mind and think about the ruling really think about Why this has been legislated ... that little while , that moment, that day or part of day is this entire world in comparison to the hereafter . SubhanAllah
