Good and evil

Good and evil are not the same
Lest we forget
Though evil may be abundant
Good and evil are not the same

Though evil may call your name
Good and evil are not the same
It sparkles and shines in this life
Its ugliness is hidden by bright lights

And the good may seem ugly at times
Good an evil are not the same
It is hard for me to smile at you
And say it will be easy
Because I for one know it won't be

Good and evil are not the same
Abundant evil grows
And pure good we seldom know
But only good is worth having

For this life goes as fast as it comes
Allah is one
We suffer for him
So choose good and I will try the same
Good is not the same as evil
Though evil is abundant
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Salam & welcome "Americanising"
first of all thank u very much for the visit and quick response to my comment at ur blog. Ur suggestions are inshaallah going to be guide lines for us. I am thankful for u have appreciated the blog description.
I think "human heart" is the place where love or haterism resides, and it also is the place in human body that we want to win.
The Verse 5 of the last Chapter of the holy Quran tells us that Satan whispers in human hearts (wich results in doubts, disbelief and all the evil that we see in this universe.) For healing the diceases of our heart our Creator sent His Messengers and revealed His books. Our Creator says:
"O mankind ! there has come to you a good advice (i.e Quran) from your Lord and a healing for (the diseases) in your hearts. And for those who believe, a guidace and a mercy."

(The Holy Quran Ch:10v.57)
Because all types of love and all types of hatered resides in our hearts therefore i think the battle ground should be our heart where we have to fight the whispers of Satan by using the healing word of the holy Quran, Sayings of our beloved Prophet and all the soft words of love and also with our sincere behaviour. Hope in this way we are able to covert the hatered into Love and peace.

Thank u very much Americanising for ur visits and suggestions that are inshaa Allah going to help us to improve our blog.

[I am pleased to tell our other visitors that yesterday i had changed the blog description. And the reason behind it, was a post at Saher's blog that inspired me to do a little to change hatred into love.]
