Steve the Seahorse #PlanetorPlastic

So, below is a short story which I wrote for the competition on Wattpad that’s held by National Geographic so that we could help and change this terrible crisis that has taken place. Millions of marine animals are dying because of plastic, isn’t it time to stop? Shouldn’t we protect these beautiful creatures? 

I hope my story will make an impact, if not a 100 percent, at least a 50? even 5% is fine because change starts with a thought. 

______________________________________________________________________________________

The seahorse wandered the vast ocean in search of a mate. For years, he had been caged by his parents in his little house that was between moss and weeds. All they wanted to do was protect him from the big, scary things out there. Things that would eat him alive like a delicious chocolate.

However, Steve the Seahorse was fed up of their “stories” about big whales and white sharks. He wanted to explore, enjoy his life, and find someone he could spend his life with. He didn’t want to waste his only life living in fear, he wanted to go out there and discover the wonders of the ocean, and see what it was really like.

Steve’s friends would always brag about going beyond their set boundaries. “I saw a dolphin! Isaw a beautiful star!” They would say. That would make Steve listen to them awe, and he too wished he had such memories to share.

One night, when Steve’s parents were asleep, he snuck out of the leaves that hid them from the big fishes and swam towards the fence that would taken him to the other side of the deep ocean. He swam and swam until he was met with a complete darkness. Hebreathed heavily, he was now afraid. He had already lost his way, he was now in distress.

Steve looked around and hoped to find someone for help. He swam a little more until suddenly,he saw something swimming at a distance. 

He cautiously swam toward it and saw a very thin creature silently swimming in the middle of nowhere.

“Excuse me? Can you help me get home? I think I’m lost.” Steve said, but the strange creature didn’t reply. It was quiet as if it was dead.

Steve touched it,but it took a step back. As weird as it may sound, it didn’t have an eyes or a nose or fins that would help it swim. “What are you…?” He asked, oblivious and astonished to see the creature in front of him.

The latter didn’t respond, it kept on swimming.

Steve looked around, and was filled with a sudden fear. He left the creature where it was and swam a little further. He met another weird creation, this one looked similar to a stingray, but it was more flat and thin, it was more transparent.

“Excuse me…can you help me?” Steve asked nervously. This creature didn’t respond as well. And so Steve went further away. He met many more of these peculiar looking things, he asked them for help, but none of them spoke to him. The more he swam further,the more he got lost.

There was no one to help him, which was strange. Because his friend had told him that the ocean was actually filled with lovely and helpful friends. Instead, all there was were transparent creatures, that didn’t talk or help. They just swam in the darkness as if they were dead.

When Entering the House and Eating

The Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “If a person mentions the Name of Allah (Bismillah) upon entering his house or eating, Satan says, addressing his followers: ‘You will find no where to spend the night and no dinner.’ But if he enters without mentioning the Name of Allah, Satan says (to his followers); ‘You have found (a place) to spend the night in, and if he does not mention the Name of Allah at the time of eating, Satan says, ‘You have found (a place) to spend the night in as well as food’.”

Walk to the Mosque.

The Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “He who purifies (performs Wudu’) himself in his house and then walks to one of the houses of Allah (mosque) for performing an obligatory Salat, one step of his will wipe out his sins and another step will elevate his rank (in Jannah).”

Stan Lee dies at 95

Well, this is a devastating and shocking news.
The writer, editor and publisher of Marvel comics passed away on the 12th of November, 2018. 

ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" - Season Three
Picture credit goes to owner.

Many actors and fans shared their condolences and thoughts on various Social Networking Sites and some even paid him tributes.

Stan Lee created worlds, heroes, villains and showed kids and adults alike that it’s okay to dream. That sometimes it’s okay to give up. Lee stories and characters are unforgettable and no doubt, they will still live for the years to come.

Marvel has taken us to so many different journeys, made us feel so many emotions and gave us the chance to dive into so many different worlds. 

It’s amazing how such a person was able to do all that. Stan Lee was gifted with talent and I would miss him and his short cameos.

He certainly marveled us with his marvelous comics.

The Descent of Jesus (Peace be upon him)

Allah’s Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from the non Muslims). 

Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” 

Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him) added, “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book):- ‘And there is none of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) but must believe in him (i.e. Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) before his death. And on the Day of Judgement, He will be a witness against them. ‘

(4.159)

The Best Invention.

Q- What do you think the best invention is?

A- Hm, as for me, I still think the best of the inventions are the phone, laptop and Wi-fi! because without it, we wouldn’t have (and I’m talking about this generation) knowledge, friends, food and literally all the stuff we have in our house right now. 

We have been so addicted to them that it’s become hard now to live without them even for a minute. 

You could say they are the best and the worst inventions of all time, but I’m not complaining because I just remembered that I need to buy something from Amazon…

The Ikea is too far away. 

However, there are various other technologies and random inventions that blows our mind away, like the new Dyson’s Vacuum Cleaner, or the Bullet Smoothie Maker or the Smart watch which immediately tells us if we are stressed or are lacking sleep. 

I mean, these people are so awesome. Like God has given them such immense knowledge and skills to invent something so useful to us that it’s something we have to ponder upon once in a while.

Now that I think about it, I myself would love to invent something but unfortunately…I =m a school dropout which means I lack the very basic knowledge needed to run a simple set of codes.

Alas…

But anyway, comment down below what you think is the best invention! 

Until then,

Peace neighbors,

When the Trumpet will be Blown…

Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it.” He (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) told them to seek comfort through reciting: “Hasbunallah wa ni’mal-Wakil.”

{Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)}

Teleportation!

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

 

I don’t need to think too much for this question. I would definitely would want to have teleportation because then I could go to so many places in so little time! I could also commit a heist *smirks* but, rest assured, I won’t do that because I’m a good girl. I’m a good and innocent human being.

Teleportation is awesome. The funny thing is, whenever I watch Doraemon, I wish I had the anywhere door because then I would be able to go to Korea, or Japan or China and come back just in time for dinner!

Alas, there’s no such thing as anywhere door, let alone having magical powers…
But it really would be great if we all had such kind of power, right?

Well, truth be told, the Jinns have such powers. 
So, it’s not really a fantasy thing.

But if we all had superpowers, the world would definitely be in much chaos.

Review of Freaking Romance Webtoon by Snailords

Title:
Freaking Romance

Author:
Snailords

Summary:
Zylith finds herself enchanted by what she assumed was a figment of imagination in her new apartment. Except…he exists. Somewhere…

Episodes:
5 (Ongoing)

My opinion:
I am in love with this webtoon. The characters are interesting. I’m especially in love with Verose who is Zylith’s (The main protagonist) friend. The art and music are amazing, and the flow of the story is well paced and in rhythm.
There are some flaws with the heroin, but that aside, the plot is great. It’s a page turner because of its magical and mysterious elements. I can’t wait to see what happens next! I would definitely recommend it to all those who love a romance with a little hint of enchantment.

Words to describe this book:
Interesting, funny, magical, mysterious.

Rating:
5/5
