A musical connection


I love how music can make you feel; feel  like a particular moment. You know when you listen to a song after a long time, feeling the same way you felt when you first heard it? Or reminding you of the time you heard that song earlier, on a passing moment, just simply bringing back memories of the past. Flashbacks.

During my summer in the states, the radio would constantly blow up with GIVE ME EVERYTHING TONIGHT, That song would play almost all the time. During our night drive from Boston to Bloomfield or our long ride to Florida, listening to the song now gives me the flashbacks of the moments spent there. The drive, the little conversations and passing sights. The cold the night got as we let ourselves free at the Boston Harbors walking fountain and how we longed for warmth the entire ride back home. Clinging to all the warmth we could find, continuously listening to the radio, passing by cars and falling asleep as the music continues and cars pass by. 

Where Rainbows End; by Cecelia Ahern, by favorite book yet. That book has everything I could ever wish for in a book. While reading it; about a year ago or so; I would have my earphones plugged on listening to the songs from Taylor Swift's latest album then; Speak Now. While flipping through pages, the songs would change ever three to four minutes, somehow managing to almost collide with the story in the perfect lines of the song.

 Long live the walls we crashed through; while the kingdom lights shined just for me and you; I was screaming long live all the magic we made..

 That's why every time I listen to some of those songs, it takes me back, back to when I was reading that book, back to that story in those pages, back to where rainbows end, back to how enlightened I was reading that book. Or when it takes me back to one of the best parties; the music, the dance; the people, the surrounding and that time. How very beautiful.
There's actually something really special about songs; and moments that they encounter. No matter how long its been, I'll never forget the moment when someone I fancy would sing a particular song continuously; instantly that song plays; the face appears to my mind; thoughts revolve.

I'm tryin' to forget; but I'm addicted to you, but I wanted and I needed I'm addicted to you..

" Music is a total constant. That's why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment."

The similar way I feel about photographs. Those are the kind of things that will never change. Just remain like that, untouched in a way. In a way, that they make us relive memories. Listen, Look and smile. Smile at how it felt then, smile at how time flew, laugh at the jokes told then, laugh at how you were then. Some are the memories of pain and some of laughter. Bittersweet memories.

"Who agrees thinks that in Islam you're supposed to cover your face? I don't think so. I think it's only hijab-covering your hair,right?"
LOL at your dumb face asking your even dumber friends as if they know any better. it doesn't matter what you "think". it's there in the quran and haadeeth. i'll be posting evidence in a while.
"i fear Allah" says the moron who surrounds herself with male friends. have a nice day.

What I would like to know, is who are you? and you could have just commented back on my twitter rather than posting on my blog.

what i would like to know is, are you dense?
is that all you have to say? i gave you source links on veiled women in islam. it's in the quran and hadeeth.
or are you incapable of reading something that doesn't revolve around teenage romance?

Huda Merchant said...

I wanna know who you are cause you're always commenting like you know me so well, but really, doesn't seem like you do.
I wasn't done reading the links before I posted the comment. And I read the link, and I do know that Hijab is a must but covering your face is not, it's a good thing if a woman does though. And InshAllah I will practice Hijab as well soon.

There are a million people who practice hijab around the world, you cant say they're not doing the right thing coz they aren't covering their faces?

And btw, I don't completely fancy teenage romances -.- When you clearly don't know me well why do you talk like you do.

And about the male friends thing, I might have friends who are male but I dont have 'physical contacts' with them or anything, rather like other girls today. I know my limits alright.

And ThankYou for the links and for taking such great interest in me and my blog.

large amount of people following something wrong doesn't make it right.

alright I apologize for the dog dick. I run my mouth like that sometimes.

I was reading this book regarding Fatwa related to Women and under the Hijab section, they did say about covering the face since it's a part of women's beauty, but there are contradictions there, like there are different interpretations. We still call Women covering their head Hijabis right?
I do know that Hijab is Obligatory and Maybe the veil is Sunnah, Im still not extremely sure. But I just wanted to know if a girl covers a head is it considered Hijab? InshAllah I've been thinking of it soon.

And, ThankYou for giving me the 'Knowledge' I did always know, but yet I'm thanking you. TELL ME WHO YOU ARRE?

But, you know what, You don't decide who burns in hell or not. None of us Muslims are perfect today , it's for Allah to judge us.

And, yeah calling someone names like 'Moron' 'Dog Dick' or so, that's not right either :)
