I just signed onto AIM after a fun evening with Andrea and I happened to catch Tiarra's status. It really spoke to me:

"We're here on Earth to do good for others. What others are here for I don't know."

I think this statement describes the sentiment of today well. After e-mailing the creators of that group about some of the images of our beloved prophet that went too far (and after a really negative comment I received on my status) that there really are a bunch of self-righteous people that don't care about other faiths and only value what's good for them. It's a sad world, especially when all faiths are perverted by extremists, but as Andrea said tonight we can't let our personal feelings and the feelings of those around you get in the way of God. She's 100% right; I love Allah and I love Muhammad (pbuh) as well as Jesus, Abraham and all the other prophets (peace be upon them), through them I do my good deeds and Islam has helped my life in a way I can't really describe. I feel at peace, especially with the prayers and especially reading the Qur'an. Thinking of the quote Tiarra posted, I know Allah put me on Earth to do good for others and to be honest and fair. I'd like to  say and deep down I believe that we're all good, but that's not the case and essentially I don't know what the others are here for -- those being the people who partook in "Draw Muhammad Day Event" and didn't care about respecting a belief system. But, as I LOVE ALLAH posted, we need to be kind to these people and ignore their words with forgiveness. After I got that nasty, rude response, that's what I just did. I just let it go and continued on with my faith in Allah. Let the people of that group do whatever they want -- nothing is going to stop them and you can't change people.

Anyway, I had a great time with Andrea tonight. We went to Pampered Chef demo. I'm seriously thinking about getting into business, but I have to talk to my parents and do some research before I decide. I think this would be a good opportunity for me, but of course I'm going to be having a talk with Allah (pbuh) for Allah (pbuh) and Muhammad (pbuh) guide me. When I got home I saw a Venus Fly Trap waiting on the table for me. I'm trying to think of a name for it, so suggestions would be awesome! I'll post a picture tomorrow! For those of you who haven't seen my new poem, here it is:
Allah's Love

Give me your tired, weary and poor,
Ravaged by desperation and fear,
thrown out by coattails of hope's door
to the streets of quarters for tears.
"Please help me, God bless you,"
yet the people ignore and continue astray.
"Here let me help you," said in the blue
of this woman's shirt in wind sways.
Emptying three quarters into the can,
smiling, she has done a good deed
for Allah; she never ran.
For Allah's love is not only in time of need,
but for all believers who praise
and the non-believers as well.
Allah's love is warm and can raise
the spirits where evil dwells.
Allah embraces all
for he does not want us to fall.
