نصائح يجب الأخذ بها وتطبيقها في كل مقابلة عمل  
بقلمي ومن خلال تجربتي-أسيل منصور 
١.عليك قبل كل شيء أن تقرأ أكثر من كتاب عن قراءة لغة الجسد،فقط وبمساعدة هذه الخطوة،ستتمكن من تحليل لغة جسد المسؤول الذي سيقابلك on line وعندها ستستجيب بشكل ملائم وتغير من ردودك حتى تثير إعجاب المسؤول أو المسؤولة.مثلا إذا نظر إليك المسؤول/ة وقد حدث ذلك معي مرّة مع تضييق حدقة العين فهذا يعني أنّ إجابتك لم تلق استحسانه وفي هذه الحالة قد يُطْلَبْ مِنْكَ أن تُوضِّحَ وجهة نظرك ثانيةً . 
من جهة أخرى، مُثْبَتْ عِلْمِيّاً أنّ الإتصال مع الآخر يتِمّ بنسبة كبيرة-أكثر من 70%-عبر لغة الجسد وقراءة كتاب من هذا النوع سيساعدك على تبنّي لغة جسد مناسبة في مقابلة العمل وفي الحياة بشكل عامّ.مثلاً، عليك أن تنظر بشكل مباشر لأعين المسؤول/ة حتّى تستطيع أن تبني عنده/ا بعض الثقة بك .
٢.يتوجب عليك كمُرَشّح أن تقرأ عن مكان العمل قبل المقابلة، فقد تضطر لأن تجيب عن أسئلة تفحص مدى اهتمامك بمكان العمل.
٣.عليك اختيار ملابس تناسب الجوّ في مكان العمل.مثلاً إن كان العمل في مكتب محاماة، فلن يكون مناسباً أن ترتدي ملابس مبهرجة.
٤.إن قام بمقابلتك أكثر من شخص، فعليك أن تُوَزِّعَ اهتمامك ونظراتك على كُلّ الحاضرين، بالأخصّ إن كنت لا تعلم من سيساهم أكثر من غيره باتخاذ قرار تعيينك.
٥.إن كانت فرصة العمل المطروحة في الإدارة، فإنّ عليك توقّع بعض الأسئلة التي سَتُطْرَح وتحضير إجابات ملائمة لها.
٦.أجب على قدر السؤال ولا "تشرد" لمواضيع ليس لها علاقة ولا تطل الإجابة حتّى لا تُشْعِر المسؤول/ة بالملل منك .
٧.تعلّم أن تتحدّث  بطبقة صوتك الرخيمة وذلك ممكن ولطالما توجّه ممثلون مشهورون لمعالجة لغة ونطق في أمريكا ليتمكّنوا من الوصول لطبقة صوتهم الرخيمة ليجذبوا المشاهدين أكثر ويحصلوا على فرص عمل أكثر ،فالصوت الرفيع لا يعطي انطباعاً جيّدا-صدّق أو لا تصدِّق-
بل سيوحي للآخر بعدم نضوجك..بالإضافة، لا تتكلم إلّا مع تنغيم الصوت أو intonation، وليس بصوت رتيب.من المُهِمّ اختيار عُلُوّ الصوت الملائم، فليس من المناسب أن تصرخ وإن أغضبك سؤالٌ ما أو استفزتك جملة، بل حافظ على نفس علوّ الصوت بحيث لا يكون محض همس ولا بمستوى الصراخ.
٨.لا تكثر من قول أنا..شَدِّد أكثر على النتائج التي أنجزتها حتى لا يتهمك الآخر بالغرور.
٩.حاول جمع أكبر عدد من التوصيات فذلك مفيد جِدّاً.
١٠.إن طُلِبَ منك اجتياز امتحان فتوجّه بأسرع وقت لمراكز تساعد المرشّحين على اجتياز هذا النوعمن الامتحانات وخاصّة الامتحانات التي تفحص ملاءمة شخصيتك للعمل ومدى أمانتك-مثلا מכון נועם .
١١.لا تُكْثِر من طرح الأسئلة وأنت ما زلت في مرحلة المقابلة.
١٢.ابتسم في بداية المقابلة وفي نهايتها.فهذا يعطي انطباعاً جيدا.
١٣.من المهمّ أن تكتب سيرة ذاتية resume أو cv مناسبة.ومن المفضل أن تتوجه للمختصين لكتابتها لك وإن كلفك ذلك مالاً فهذه الورقة هي عنوان نجاحك.
١٤.أحياناً قد تضطر أن تختار إن كنت مستعدًّا لأن تقوم بتغيير مُعَيَن، مثلاً، وقد سُئِلْتُ في كثير من الأحيان، إن كنت أستطيع أن أُغَيِّر شكل حجابي.فلك الخيار في ذلك.
١٥.هل لديك نصائح أخرى، أكتبها في تعليق ليستفيد غيرك.
 أتمنّى أن تكون نصائحي قد أفادتكم!!

مقال في النقد:
أين نحن من الخراط؟

         موت المؤسسة النقدية
            بقلم: أسيل منصور 
14/12/15
النقد لغويا هو تبيين حَسَنِ الشيء مقابل رديئه وإظهار عيوبه ومحاسنه. ويرى بعض الباحثين أن
النقد هو محاولة منضبطة يشترك فيها ذوق الناقد وفكره، للكشف عن مواطن القبح والجمال في الأعمال الأدبية.
وبنظري فإنّ النقد الأدبي عبارة عن مرآة تعكس للقارىء   "مناقب ومثالب" عمل أدبي معين،  وهو أيضا بوصلة توجّه المبحرين في الأدب نحو أعلام كتبوا ما يستحق أن ترسو السفن في مينائه. ومن جهة أخرى فإن النقد إذا خرج إلى النور فإنه يعمل على مدّ عروق العمل الأدبي بالدماء بعدما خلقه الكاتب بهيئته النهائية وعلى بثّ الروح فيه  ليُكتب لمثله الحياة،  وحتّى النقد السلبي فإنّ له نفس الوظيفة فهو يعترف بكيان العمل الذي كُتِب ولهذا الاعتراف أثره في إحياء النص المكتوب، بل وتكاد تكون وظيفة النقد مطابقة لوظيفة الطبيب الذي يزرع رئتين للعمل الأدبي يتنفس من خلالهما.والكاتب مهما كانت أهميّته بأمسّ الحاجة لقرين نقدي لعمله حتى يراه بمنظور موضوعي ليساعده هذا في تطوير كتاباته المستقبلية.
ولو أردنا أن نقارن بين الخارطة الأدبية والنقدية في البلاد في فترة الخمسينات والستينات وما بين الوضع الحالي، سنجد في صفحات الماضي ، حضور بارز لمؤسسة نقدية تمثلت بتيار الحزب الشيوعي عبر منابر مثل جريدة الاتحاد والتي اهتمت بأصوات أدبية حظيت بشرف النقد. ولا شك أن تيار الحزب الشيوعي حرص على إبراز الأصوات التي عالجت قضايا فيها التزام سياسي والتي خدمت الترويج للفكر الإشتراكي ونبذت أعمال أدبية عالجت مسائل اجتماعية ولا أحد ينكر  أن العملية النقدية قد روفقت  بتحيُّز لأدباء ملتزمين سياسيا وبرأيي حتى هذا التحيز لا يقلل من قيمة المؤسسة النقدية آنذاك والتي ضمّت أصوات جديرة بمكانة لا يمكن تجاهلها في عالم النقد.  والمفارقة التي نجدها بين الأمس واليوم هو أن القرّاء المستهدفين في البلاد في ذلك الوقت كانوا قلة لهجرة الكثير من المثقفين بعد قيام الدولة وبقاء القرويين الذين لم يكن لديهم توجه ثقافي ومع ذلك كان للمؤسسة النقدية صدى وكيان واضح شكّل همزة وصل بين الكاتب والقارىء، وأما اليوم فنشهد توسُّع لدائرة القرّاء المثقفين أمام غياب واضح للمؤسسة النقدية في البلاد. وإن قمنا بمعالجة كتب جديدة لباحثين ونقّاد كبار لهم قيمتهم  ولا غنى لنا عنهم، سنجد وكأنّ عجلة الزمن قد توقّفت في مكان ما في كتبهم وبأنّهم تابعوا أدباء خاضوا الساحة حتى سنوات التسعين ومن بعدها سنلقى غياب جزئي أو حتى تامّ لمعالجة نصوص لأدباء جدد. 
قد يقول قائل، إن هذا التجاهل مُبرّر لأنّ عدد الكُتّاب اليوم يفوق عدد القرّاء ونادرا ما نجد من بين ما يُنْشَر ما يستحقّ المعالجة وحتّى حين نقرأ نقد لعمل أدبي جديد فإنّه في الغالب سيكون غير موضوعي تختبأ من وراء سطوره، محسوبيات أو أغراض معيّنة ، ولكن أنا بنظري المشكلة هي أخرى، فبينما رافق الحزب الشيوعي إيمان راسخ بفكر معيّن دفع برجاله إلى المبادرة النقدية فإنّنا نشهد غياب حوافز تُشَجّع من يملك أدوات النقد على القيام بعملهم في غربلة الأصوات الجديدة ، عرضها على المحكّ، فتنتها كما تُفْتَن المعادن ليخرج منها الذهب صافيا خالصا، وأجزم في كون السؤال الذي يطرحه هؤلاء النقّاد الغائبين عن الساحة الأدبية على أنفسهم ، يتعلق بالفائدة التي سيجنونها إذا اعتلوا منصة النقد ،  وأسمعوا صوتهم وعالجوا نصوص لأصوات حديثة ليخلقوا عبر نقدهم البنّاء جيل الشعراء والروائيين القادم .
إنّ هذا المقال المتواضع هو همسة بأذن كل من يملك السلطة والقدرة على التأثير في دعم وتشجيع النقّاد على الإدلاء بصوتهم في القَيِّم من الكتابات التي تحاول أن تشقّ طريقها في ساحة خالية تماما من مؤسسة نقدية حيّة وفاعلة.
********************************************************************************

أحيانا نشعر بالضعف وبالوهن  وتضيق بنا الدنيا بما رحبت ونحس بالحنين لمستوى إيماني سبقنا إليه الكثيرون وعندها نكون بأمس الحاجة لمن يأخذ بيدنا ويرقى بنا إلى الجميل من حلاوة الإيمان وهنا يجب أن نقف وقفة حساب مع النفس على اختياراتنا في الحياة فيما يتعلق بأعم الأمور إلى أدقها وبالذات فيما يتصل بمن يحيطون بنا من أصقاء فنحن نحتاج من يشعل بنا جذوة الاتصال بالإيمانيات وهذا ما ينقصنا في هذه الأيام فحبذا لوصدقنا عهدنا مع الله واخترنا خلانا نفرح برؤيتهم يوم الحساب.
The value of true friendship:

As we wander around the universe looking for our destiny or true destination we need some important things for the way such as stable belief in Allah which doesn't come easily and in order to have such belief we must engage in certain permanent habits like praying and reading our holly book the Quran .
But , sometimes , such things aren't enough and true friendship is needed.
A true friend won't judge you for your mistakes but would embrace you despite those mistakes and his or her wish for you would be only pleasing God .
True friends would advice and consult you through the light of our religion and would always be loyal and true with unusual devotion which derives from their love to Allah .
True friends would make you smile through tears and would wipe those tears for you.
True friends would have real intention to give you whatever you need even if they don't have it and the mere intent would be enough to make you feel better.
With true friends , you will never be alone , the only problem is their a extinct species so you better pick them up carefully:)

Sack of rocks

Whenever you're worried about something or simply depressed you should do the following things:
1.remember that everything in this life is temporal and it will have an end eventually even suffering and torture so just by saying it to yourself it will improve your psychological situation.
2. Have a heart to heart conversation with beloved ones and if you don't then with a full stranger but you must not keep this big sack of rocks you carry inside you ,you must bring it out and make someone who cares carry its burden with you .
3.have a sunbath for an hour or more.Just sit in the sun and try to grasp tranquility from the silent environment.
4. Last but not least , ask forgiveness from Allah who is the almighty and can vanish any trouble you're facing 
Said it all out of experience..
Wish me and you good luck
And bye for now... 





Creativity 

Creativity is a gift from God and it has an abstract essence and nature , I might almost categorize as a seventh sense because the sixth one  is all about intuition.creativity is expressed by those chosen ones by some sort of art doesn't matter which kind and there are those lucky ones who's artistic work is appreciated by others and some don't get any appreciation such as me :) and Van Gokh the famous painter who died before getting credit and respect for any of his marvelous creations ,he never felt what it means to finally be honored because of your gift .He even was hospitalized in a mental hospital once but what was special about him is that he never quitted and never fought the stream of creativity running into his veins so he's a model for every creative person who has not yet got into the lights and flashes and his art hasn't yet affected anyone .
I see that creativity is born when a person lives hell itself while being alive , fight through life's hardships and knows bitter days and only this kind of troubled mind gives born to creativity . This is how I see it . Please send me your opinions regarding creativity and you could
write me in Arabic.

Patience
Sometimes things in life gets really hard and then you don't know what way to take and what's the right thing to do and you keep asking yourself why is all this happening only to you and what you forget is that everyone has problems and a different timing for troubles to Come and the devil starts whispering that all this is happening because God is displeased with you and you might get desperate but if you choose patience and you trust that God knows what's best for you and that sometimes the consequences of a trouble might be better than you imagine then you'll get to feel real peace in your soul and one day maybe one day later , maybe one year later and maybe ten years ago and your situation will change for the better because God cares tremendously  for everyone and specially for the believers so eventually something good is gonna come out of the dark !!!
So keep believing and waiting 
Hold on to your belief no matter what and always trust Allah.

The song SOS by Indila

This song is just another example for a call for spiritual help coming from the west .
What is so special about our religion of it's implemented well is that it supplies all one's needs ,either by zakat which helps financially or by supplementing spiritual food to whoever cares to ask for it .
We all strive for a balanced being and when we're starving spiritually , we find ourselves automatically asking for help from another being .In the non Muslim west people are ignorant of their spiritual needs so they think that others can help them fill this big gap but what they don't know is that it is only by believing in God and praying to him and asking help from him that one can be rightfully balanced so this sos should be directed to Allah .
What to do !!!

In the middle of all the chaos of the current mess in the Arabic world I ask my self on a daily basis what is it that I must do to help straighten things up and then I notice how small I am and how hushed is my voice and how hopeless my deeds seem to be but then I remember my writing machine and my voice and I feel powerful . It is our duty as Muslims to say it when something is not legal by the Islam's standards is happening that is of-course of we can't do a thing except raising our voice so here I am writing how horrible is all the killing of Muslims by their own brothers around the world meeting silence of the world . Year after year passes away and no light seems to be at the end of the tunnel . We should all raise our hands and pray to our Muslim brothers and for these endless wars to end .

Determination

Lately , I've been busy in writing two research papers for the university because I saw it was only right to start my studies to second degree in Arabic and even though I did not write daily in my website I saw you still kept checking if I wrote something new and I'm truly grateful for you . In this article ,I want to write about the power of the strong well through my personal experience .
At first , when I started working on the two research papers , I thought writing them was impossible and just for the record it's not the first time I write a research paper but in my previous papers I wrote a scientific paper and not a literary one and I had in mind that there are allot of differences between the two kinds of papers and I was right .For example , in the literary paper you must write the exact pages' numbers of the recourse and unlike the scientific field I needed to read full whole books to extract relevant information while when I wrote scientific papers I had only to read articles.
Any way ,the journey seemed very hard and full of hardships and the main problem was finding time to read the needed bibliography and above all I lacked the encouragement of my close relatives because they didn't want to see me investing efforts in something they thought useless because I already has a second degree and a job .
I asked the Department for lengthening the period for submitting the papers but I got a big NO. 
So , I remembered a very important word .A magical word ,a word that would help like a good fairy and this word if you're asking has nothing to do with me trusting God because I already trusted him but God wants us to work so we'll get what is meant to be ours .That word was Determination .
I decided I'm gonna finish the two tasks before time ,I worked around the hour , took some days off work and eventually I did it .
I finished writhing two papers more that one month before the deadline and I'm grateful for God and I am truly proud of my accomplishments and I know I couldn't do it without God.
Nothing is impossible if you decide it's right for you and if you work really hard for achieving it ..
Wish me good  grades and luck for my next tasks !!!

 

What is meant by manhood

(Last part)

Written by : Asil M.I

After all we already said and I think agreed about ,it's time to make some order and solve the riddle of who deserves to be titled with the rank of manhood ( all I'm gonna say will refer to men and women equally). So let's end this discussion by the following points :

1.A person with manhood will never ever be egocentric and the consequences of this are very far reaching because firstly , it means that this person would not mind to make a joke himself, consequently, he'll make fun of himself in so many ways you'll never even consider to do just to make others he cares about laugh for a bit and that is because he doesn't know egoism neither care about it .Secondly , he'll forgive you with rare easiness but he'll learn from his mistakes with you and will never repeat them.

Thirdly , he would be calm about everything and in most cases he'll deal with troubles with extreme tranquility and that is because he is from those people who know that on this earth there is no one and nothing worthwhile him being too overwhelmed or too upset or too depressed for  or about so if you separate he won't grieve for long .Also, you can never humiliate such a person even if you call him with names in front of a crowd or make fun of him and what would happen is that he'll smile to you and won't even bother to answer you and he'll continue to be himself without the least attention to you .

2.A manly person is very accurate with his appointments ,so if he promises you to be up at four o'clock in the morning ,well, he'll be there at quarter to four or maybe even before .In addition , this person won't stand delays cause it would mean you're not a responsible person in his eyes so he'll be ready to cancel appointments just for the sake of the principle of the matter which is that you will always keep your promises no matter what !!!!

3.This manly person doesn't trust others or put his life or his secrets in anyone's hands easily .He will be testing you without making you conscious to it . He'll watch you very closely ,even too closely  than you expect to see if he can rely on you ..if he doesn't find you reliable , then you are a very problematic person because he'll give numerous chances to prove yourself and then he'll say farewell  forever and you'll not get another opportunity with him cause once he disqualifies you ,your chances with him would probably come to zero ...

4. Last but not least , if you go back to all I wrote till now , you'll see that manhood in my eyes is actually inspired by the believer's characteristics in the light of  prophet Lukman's will to his son and the Sunna and in precise the Hadith which defines who is a hypocrite and I truly believe a man or a woman with manhood would always consider things like right and wrong according to God's guidance to us and it doesn't matter to which religion you belong as long as you're a true believer and as long as you always have God in mind before any step you may do. Other than that your principles would be very weak and fragile and let's face it you will not be a real man with a strong will when hard temptations attack .,

So here you go , I solved the riddle for you ..

Whatever you decide to do with this information is only up to you ,.

Good luck !!!

 


What is meant by manhood(2)
Written by : Asil M.I
In the previous article we redefined manhood and emphasized that it's a trait of personality and not an exclusive quality of males so, it can be found in men and women altogether and then we  discussed several characteristics of manhood in men and women separately .
In this article ,I will elaborate some points regarding the same issue , but all I'm gonna mention what would refer to both men and women without distinction .Firstly , having manhood means you always choose to say the truth even if you decide to say part of it as the outcome of emotional intelligence which means that you would always know how to pick the right words depending on who your listener is and how he or she feels and on how you expect them  to react.
In other words , a manly person will know how to analyze the body language of others and will be talented in analyzing people's personalities so that he or she will know how to please others , solve problems quietly and how to avoid troubled subjects.
Saying part of the truth is definitely legitimate so feel free to adopt it because sometimes it's a savior.
Secondly , a manly person will never be a schemer and he or she will never manipulate you and he or she will answer your questions with honesty and with major frankness and most importantly he or she would respond to all your e-mails with great sense of responsibility towards you .
Furthermore, he or she will be a very loyal worker no matter how frustrated he or she might be and he or she  would be very creative seeking to innovate on his  or her career's field .
Most importantly , when you ask this person for advice , he or she will tell you everything but everything he or she knows about the subject and will not keep his or her knowledge or experience hidden from you .
A human with manhood would feel actual happiness when something good happens to you and he or she wouldn't mind at all seeing you climb the ladder while he or she stays in the back stage because he or she would have a very special philosophy about humanity and its future destination .You will get the same super empathic  response if something bad happens to you ,so a manly person is worthwhile keeping as best friend .
Moreover ,when ,a manly person finds himself or herself in the middle of an ethical dilemma , he or she would approve the decision of the mind upon  the heart's and he or she will pick the option which involves less damage for others so he or she will always have others in mind.
In addition , this special person would be highly self conscious with an inner thermometer so he or she would know how to return to balance whenever he or she deviate from it .
Also , he or she would be very modest because he or she has a strong self confidence  and they would not feel an urge to prove themselves all the time or to make friendship with you and will never ever become a nuisance and they'll redraw from your life if they smell your unpleasantness  ,so if you'll like them they'll know it , welcome it and reinforce it but if you hate them , they'll hear it silently from your yellow smile  and they'll know exactly how to take a step backwards and they'll leave you with no regrets.
What I'm trying to say here is that manhood is highly related to emotional intelligence and this kind of intelligence is most important to live quietly and peacefully in life so if you know how to handle others , how to make yourself happy with no reliance on others by just being real you and by developing your habits and nurturing them and you answer all the pervious mentioned points then you have a reason to be happy with your manhood ..

What is Meant by Manhood?!
Written by : Asil M.I
Manhood is often defined mistakenly as an exclusive trait of men when in fact it's a very rare personality's quality that women can have too.
Manhood is being able to sense others' needs and doing your best to help.Also ,It includes all manners specially: loyalty,honesty ,generosity, kindness,sensitivity,patience ,mercy and courage  . 
When manhood is find in a man , he'll become the son all mothers pray for ,the husband all women seek and the father that any little girl would wish for because this man will treat women with equality ,listen with real attention to their complicated emotional world and will know how to react and how to support the other side that consequently ,believe it or not , a wife ,might actually lose any interest in shopping because her real emotional needs are secured by this husband so it saves money!
A woman with manhood would be special and mostly different 
From other regular women .She would not like silly chats of gossips and she will prefer loneliness upon being in a noisy party .She will be a very merciful person that wouldn't mind in most cases to sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of others .
In addition , normal men would not understand her and they'll secretly think she's too complicated for them and they'll prefer the other 99% of women which are so easily dealt with so let's admit it ,this kind of a woman would be lonely in a world full of people until God sends her a company with real manhood ,either by a true girl-friend or the perfect son or in rare cases a suitable husband ,only then ,she might become less lonely .
In summary, Manhood is a rare coin,and I believe it could be acquired with some effort but generally either you have it or you don't ,so I suggest you check your shopping habits to see if you're living with a human with manhood !!! If you don't ,well, my advice for you is to look at the bright side of the matter: at least now you know it:)
(i'm laughing too)








The secret life of Walter Mittty

Written by : Asil M.I

In this super inspiring movie , Walter ,the hero of the film ,spends his youth in daydreaming which ,in most cases is considered  a healthy habit ,but in the case of Walter , it never serves the aim it was meant for which is perusing in some point the realizing of these daydreams. Walter abandons his dreams for the sake of making his beloved ones happy-his mother and sister- even by over- sacrificing his own personal wishes to suffice things that are not necessary or of great significance to the happiness of his close relatives and by that erasing himself from life itself. In the way, Walter hides his true adventurous identity and loses  track of his real designation. As a result, he lives in the shadows of his unfulfilled dreams. One of the bitter consequences of Walter's choices is the disability of facing others or speaking up and defending himself, his beliefs and his opinions. Nevertheless , as usually happens in real life , karma interfered and a gift disguised in a crisis's costume is given to Walter who find himself in the threat of being fired as the magazine in which he works as a negative assets manager is bought by another company .

When Walter sees the ugly face of reality he comes to a conclusion that he has nothing to lose and with some encouragement from his co-worker in which he's secretly in love with, he takes off to an adventure to find the photojournalist-Sean - he usually works with to ask him for a copy of the negative of a photograph that will be the cover of the final print issue.

During the harsh journey between several continents, Walter travels in the depth of his self and rediscovers the lost brave Walter who acknowledges and values who he really is: a good hearted person with fine and noble principles who was highly esteemed by his beloved ones for the talents he had. The metaphor manifested in this journey is so obvious and brings me back to the tale of the Alchemist which, in its realistic translation, teaches us that when we follow our dreams with insistence they eventually come true in spite of the fact that they might come true in a different or a better version if compared with what we wished for in the beginning and despite the hardships we might encounter on the way. Walter finds out that the negative was back at home where he left it inside a wallet which was a gift of appreciation to Walter's work from Sean   and that he should've appreciated himself much further and believe that others valued his work to the extent that it is possible that Sean will leave him something valuable like the negative inside the wallet, and  Walter dreamt all the time so eventually fate conspired in his favor and made him think that the negative was lost and that the note Sean wrote –look inside – was a metaphoric one and that there is no chance Sean valued Walter to the extent that he will leave the negative as a gift and this exact mistake made him take a critical look inside himself and take courageous steps into positive change which he needed the most" to be" as he daydreamt during the good years of his youth he lost in the way.

There were many factors that led to the success of the film, First, the film is comedic so that its message is conveyed strongly so that even a child can perceive the lesson behind it . Secondly, Ben Stiller is always a winning card and he made a masterpiece by acting and directing simultaneously and he donated a lot to the strength of the movie. Thirdly, the issue of the movie is universal because Walter represents each and every one of us and most of us lose track of his\her true identity in the way because he or she allows circumstances to take control of his/her life instead of making circumstances and defining who we really are.

The movie ends fabulously when, Walter looks at the issue of the last magazine's print which was dedicated to the staff and finds that the cover shows a photo of him examining a contact print and doing his job with a sense of loyalty without asking a reward for the perfect job he has always done including promotions and other kind of rubbish.

I will leave you with the Shakespearian eternal question we should take into consideration when deciding who we really want ourselves to be  and what we really want from life :to live with honor ,sense of content and self-esteem, which is in some sense reflected in being human, or in my terms, A true Muslim, so ask yourselves the following if you really care about the tomorrow of our Islamic nation "To be or not to be?"

          

 


My story with Hijab
Asil M.I

dedicated to my dear friend ,sister ,former teacher :Salwa Qashoua

I wore hijab at my fifteenth birthday way before my mother or sister did .I CHOSE hijab as a way of living after several years of studying my religion at the mosque in Tira .I was gifted by a sister ,a mother and a teacher who taught me that Islam is a blessing once you understand it the right way .She taught me Quran and how to understand it and how to read  it ..I fell in love with my religion and when I wore hijab ,well ,it was an act of love toward my God who showed me the right way so soon and I believe that wearing hijab helped me shed light on the real inner me so any success I lived was because of the real me 'cause hijab highlights your personality so that you're accepted for who you really are away from any outer distraction.
A Muslim woman should implement hijab in any word she says and in any step she takes..hijab is her passport to safety and to Janna...
I chose hijab ..it was my choice ,still is ,I chose to wear it as an act of free well ...
I hope God is pleased with me though I'm far from being perfect and I make mistakes just like any body else ..
I pray to be a strong believer as long as I live and that maybe my words would inspire  other sisters to choose the path of spirituality and Real Islam ...






"chandelier"

by :Asil M.I

 
Can't resist writing about a perfect example of the meaningless life of the atheist west imitated perfectly by a big portion of the east which is reflected by the song "chandelier" performed perfectly by Sia , in which we can find a frank image of the hopeless life prevailing amidst the non-spiritual societies.
 Drinking alcohol is just a metaphor to the endless attempts of the unreligious to reach inner peace, happiness and contentment by saturating their body needs  by  using "drugs" to paralyze feelings as a way to attain the comfortable  indifference, ("party girls don't get hurt, can't feel anything ") but the starving soul gives no rest till an atheist learns one or two things about spirituality and start living it on a daily basis. And what is spirituality if not the food of souls and what is the worth of love without spirituality.
In addition, by analyzing the meaning hiding between the words of the line "I'm the one" for a good time call"" in the song, we can understand that it is only because atheists have no spiritual goal that their love toward others is limited by the needs of the moment and  as a result of the fact that they never dream of being repaid by a generous God nothing prevents  them from giving love when it suits them and withhold it when it's less convenient for  them.
Furthermore, the contradiction between the less desperate images of "swinging from the chandelier, living the present like tomorrow does not exist and flying like a bird" and the sad tears is only a confirmation of the psychological hell, cycle of repeated death, non-believers are living.
The poem is a dark call for help and for salvation we all strive for and which we will never maintain till we understand the cause of our creation and the real sacred goal of our life

 

 

 

"Chandelier"

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn?
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink

Throw 'em back 'til I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink

Throw 'em back 'til I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

On for tonight
'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight
'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight

 




Maleficent

written by: Asil Mansur Iraqi

No one denies that western fairy tales we were all exposed to either by a naïve mistake committed innocently by our parents in the manner of a permanent "efficient" habit of telling a story in each day  or by books  we read or movies we watched ,have a leading role in corrupting our perception of the  true identity of  "TRUE LOVE". What we were forced  to build  in our mental representation of this pure feeling was a total crime  because of the imaginary world we, as children, thought it existed as a result  of  the positive  meal of daily  reinforcements  we repeatedly got from the so called happy end  which  made us believe that the fake charm of unreal characters and the imaginary  smooth relationships between them is actually realistic and this delusionary perception and the ungrounded true about love led and it's still driving people  in many cases to  big disappointments ,hardships in accepting reality of relationships  and according to many surveys to a high percentage of destructive divorce cases in society.

In spite of the mentioned above, the movie Maleficent which was based on the fairy tale "sleeping beauty" succeeded in breaking some of the game's roles in defining love.

In the usual version of "sleeping beauty ",the beautiful typical blond princesses is in horrible danger because of a deadly curse in which she'll  never wake up from a coma –if may I say – unless  a charming prince gives her one kiss of true love and to our concern ,this prince falls in love with the princess  only by one look of first sight-how convenient- and most people still believe in such  rubbish   unconsciously and wait their whole lives for some magic to occur so they can become bewitched by others'  eyes  to catch the so called happy end and most of them brake-up or divorce after a short while more than once.

Watching "maleficent"  was an extraordinary experience ,because in the end what really saves the princess is the motherly love of the evil fairy who raised her herself  and protected her herself after she  cursed her as an act of revenge against  the princess's father –the king- who used Maleficent's –the fairy combining goodness and evil as all of us if may I say–naïve emotions to destroy her happiness ,steal  her wings and leave her as a total  wreck because of  greedy  and the desire to rule land and beyond it.

The innovation of this film adaptation appears in many aspects and dimensions. First of all, the character of Maleficent is realistic because she represents the love of land and using the last option of starting a war to protect someone's homeland. In addition, using revenge in Maleficent's case was meant to test the essence of true love and to re-educate us and to re-define the truth and the whole truth and nothing but the truth of true love.

"True Love"  in its new gown is redefined and we can expect to find it in motherhood and mainly in loyalty and true friendship and   paralyzed viewers  conclude that true love is only created  after a long term relationship in which the true face of each character is exposed .

I enjoyed every minute of the new fairy tale and this new truth brings me back to my religious old truth of love in Islam in each and every level.

May God gather you all with your beloved ones in the real secret garden awaiting all true believers of the merciful loving God.

 

 

 










 

London River and Kurbaan

BY:Asil Mansour Iraqi

 

London River and Kurbaan are two movies made by two different cultures and yet ,both of them discuss the same issues ...I was surprised and even stunned to see the huge amount of efforts invested to address many unsolved problems which evolve around Muslims ,starting from racism against muslims ,prejudice, terrorists devastating the lives of innocent people in the name of islam including muslim victims too, the implications of these acts specially upon muslims themselves and finally and most important:the killing of muslims around the world accompanied with the whole world's silence...I was specially touched by the fact that fear is one of the reasons behind some acts of racism ,an obstacle which we can try to break by being true muslims...enough said....

شر البلية ما يقتل..

بقلم :أسيل منصور عراقي

 

في كل صباح وعشيّة، نشهد إقبالًا مُتحضراً عصرياً على العناوين في مختلف المواقع الرائدة على الشبكة العنكبوتية التي استحوذت على اهتمام المجتمعات البشرية وجُلِّ أوقات أبناء الأمة العربية والبيِّنة على ذلك ،عدد الزيارات واللايكات التي تصل احياناً لأرقام خيالية ،وقد ازداد البلاء الحسن بعد استيلاء  اجهزة الاتصال اللا- سلكية والهواتف الذكية على ما تبقى من أزمان كُنَّا نحظى فيها بالقليل من تكتلات وتجمعات  عائلية او لنقل أخوية والتي كانت تضفي جواً من القربة العاطفية وتضيف لنا تجارب تعلمنا قليلا عن فن الفلسفة الاجتماعية.

كان من المفروض طبعا ان يزيد غزو الصحف والكتب الالكترونية والتي نجدها بمتناول الجميع ومن ضمنهم  نجوم الغَدِ حيث يواكبها الشباب عبر الشاشات اللماعة الوضاحة  من المحصلة  الثقافية لبناة المستقبل وان نرى تجاوبا وتفاعلا وردات فعل عقلية بحيث تتلاءم مع المنشورات الراقية المكتوبة بلغة عربية فصيحة كادت ان تقتل لتكون منسية بتأثير لغات اقل شانا ومكانة بسبب عملية الانصهار بحضارات غربية ولكن شر البلية هو ان القضية الحالية مهزومة ومنهية فإذا استندنا لعلم الإحصاء وقوانينه المتفق عليها من قبل كل الفئات الملمة بالتخصصات العلمية وأخذنا عينة لا يستهان بها من التعليقات المستلقية تحت ظل أسماء لمعت في سماء عالم الصحافة العالمية سنجد ان معظمها يتعلق بقضايا هامشية لم تكن أبدا هدفا لكُتّاب تتلمذوا في مدرسة الحياة العملية واستقوا الحكمة من عباقرة الماضي والحاضر وتعلموا على يدهم حرفة فصل الأمور الجوهرية عن الثانوية في مقالاتهم وتبيينها بصورة واضحة نقية فهي لا تقبل اكثر من تفسير مع اختلاف وجهات النظر بلب خلافات متاحة بل ومنطقية ،اما ان نجد ان التعليقات تعاني ما تعاني من ركاكة لغوية وتَرَدٍّ بالأفكار المطروحة الخجلة من جلدها مستحية ، فهي اذن بلية وأشد بلية وبالذات حين  ينم التعليق عن مشكلة في الفهم للعربية وما وراء سطور العربية ..

لا ارى حلا غير تغيير المناهج التعليمية لتشجيع القراءة وهي أم القدرة التفكيرية عند أطفالنا الذين فيهم تكمن فرصتنا الذهبية لبناء اجيال تحقق لنا المجد لنربح القضية ...

 

 

 لا للعنصرية !!!
بقلم:أسيل منصور عراقي
23/11/14


في هذه الأيام العصيبة والتي تشكل دورة من دورات دولاب الحياة تعلو الشعارات المنددة للعنصرية ضد العرب في إسرائيل وكأن الامر جديد وكأن العنصرية كانت قد توقفت للحظة ثم ضغط أحدهم على مفتاح ليعيد تكرار الشريط . وتعيدني هذه الأفكار الضالة والمضللة الى سن الثامنة عشر حين بدأت أتتلمذ في جامعة الحياة فذقت للمرة الاولى مرارة العنصرية وأحسست كيف يتطهر قلبي من تصورات بناها لعالم مثالي يمتد الى ما وراء بلدتي الصغيرة والذي  فيه تستمر الأخوة والوئام بين الجميع ومنذ ذلك اليوم الذي دست فيه على التصورات البريئة لعالم نزيه وعادل لم تعد تفاجؤني تصرفات لاحقتني فيها أضعاف أضعاف عنصرية اليوم الظاهرة والعلنية والتي كانت تختبأ تحت قناع موجه نحو أفراد معينين لانتمائهم القومي والديني وكل ما حصل أن وسائل الإعلام التي اجتاحت كل بيت صارت وسيلة ناجعة توصل أخبار العنصرية الى كل بيت وهذا في الحقيقة ما حصل .أما ان نشوه وجه الحقيقة ونرسم بالكلمات إعلانا يوهمنا أن العنصرية قد كانت قد ماتت يوما وولدتها أحداث الحاضر بمخاض مؤلم لتحيا من جديد بعد أن عشنا فترة من السلام والمساواة فهذه أفكار لأشخاص لم يعرفوا أبدا أنواع العنصرية والتي يتذوقها بشكل خاص القابض على وطنيته بشكل عام ودينه بشكل خاص ...
أشهد الأحداث بألم ولكن أعلم علم اليقين أن العنصرية  ولدت مع خلق الانسان ولن تنتهي الا بنهاية عهده .
