Do-To before you turn 18

Posted on: Friday, February 22, 2008

Well, well ……. I was tagged by my dear friend Sara to write 6 things which according to me should be done before each person turns 18.The rules are as follows –
Post these rules before presenting your list.List 6 actions or achievements you think every person should accomplish before turning 18.There are no conditions on what can be included on the list.At the end of your post, choose 6 people to get tagged and list their names.People who are tagged write their own blog entry with their 6 suggestions.Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.
As soon as i knew i was tagged, i have been working on what to write …. πŸ™‚ , Am not sure whether i would make sense or not, but the following things i suppose should be done or understood before turning 18.

1. I think every child (before 18, every human is a child,isnt it??? ) should clearly understand that the world in which we live, the air we breath, and the surrounding we live in isnt to be easily trusted. They should prepare their minds for the various complexities they are gonna face and cruelity which is gonna be shown to them. Sure, there shall be good and best things too, but i prefer them believing in the saying – “Expect the Best but always prepare for the worst”. This shall make their life easier ………. πŸ™‚

2. Everyone should have had completed readingΒ the whole Quran atleast once and must have the knowledge of what reading prayers regularly and on time fetches us.

3. Must have enjoyed life till its maximum, I aint saying that life will not give them any more chances but, We dont feel care-free as often and are usually involved in something or the other.Specially a girl, As soon as she is 18, “C’mmon, Dont you want to get married ?” and there starts the whole chain …….. !!!!!!!

4. Have a good sense of judging people, for we dont wanna end up with doing something really stupid and nasty just because we trusted someone who wasnt worth.

5. Must develop the most important things required to survive, Confidence and Self-respect . If you arent confident, people will exploit you; If you dont respect yourself, Nobody will ….. 😦

6. Believe that Love exists, You can fall in love anytime in your life and you maynot even realise that. C’mmon dont we all agree ??? But, Always make sure to fall in love with the right and good person. When i was turning 18, I startedΒ accepting the following things, which helped me. Maybe will help everyone here –
– You never know how much a person means to you until you lose them; don’t take anyone for granted.
– To be mature, you have to be an adult. But to be in love, you have to be nothing but a human being with a heart.
– A relationship lasts longer not because they don’t make mistakes,but because they mostly try to overlook them.
– When You accept the rose, you must also accept the thorns.

And i tag – Lubbu, Zios, Adikbongsu andΒ Mona , Best of luck guys …. !!!!

Thanks for tagging me…will be working on it this weekend. πŸ™‚

Hey sweet Maryam πŸ™‚
Thanks a lot, I’ll do it on sunday as it requires a bit of thinking πŸ™‚

You know what I really really feel like saying?


Thanks for doing it.. Amazing thoughts! I love you more fiLlah nor sister πŸ˜€

*lottsa love & a squeezy hug*

*more fiLlah now sister*

lol, im not feeling well since last night, I believe it totally shows now!

Where are my manners?

I forgot to thank you for doing the tag!

Thank you maryoomy πŸ™‚

beautifully scripted…point 2 would be great if read with meaning also…thats my aspiration…I wonder when…I just have to put my head to it…

Hmm, i dont agree people can fall in love any time. I am kinda person who believes, the true love is just once and forever. If we lose that, it doesnt repeat again. Not same feeling, nor same joy.
Nowadays people are very confused to understand difference of LOVE and LUST. That’s why they fall in love thousands times and after failure they feel guilty.

Anyway i am happy you’ve found your forever LOVE. Alhamdulilah πŸ™‚

I’m allergic to mannered women πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

Mona, Lubna …. I understand, Tak your own time. I am sure you both will come up with some good points…… πŸ™‚

… Thank you for your dua Sis, Whats wrong with your health ? I hope you will be well soon,inshallah.

UTP …… Thank you, I am glad you liked my way of writing. May Allah bless you with the hidaayat to start reading Quran with ranslation soon inshallah. Ameen.

Shahrzad …. You misunderstood me sweety, I dint mean People fall in love many times in a lifetime, I mean that anyone can fall in love at any moment of his/her life. Like, I dint knew a second before i was gonna fall in love with Z, but i did. So, thats exactly what i meant.
I agree with you that True love happens just once, and can never repeat itself again.

Stinger …… You are ???
Wanna marry a unmannred woman then ? O God ! Help him ….. πŸ™‚

Unmannered women are more fun than the mannered ones. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

You know, I tell my mom that look for a girl who has a bad gpa and all πŸ˜€ You know, someone who would be better suited to me. πŸ˜€

God bless you girl…Nice thoughts.
I learnt so many thing before turning to 18 that it would take me double that time to forget them :-P. But I will tell me kids to live their lives without putting any limits except what Allah has ordained.

As Salaamu ALaikum Sis:

Mash’ALlah, nice thoughts. You have some deep thinking going on, girl. I like coming to your site. There is always a variety of fun going on.

Jazak Allahu Khair

Well written and good thoughts. God Bless you.

Wishful thoughts πŸ™‚

But you see I kind of disagree with 1,3,4 numbered To-Do’s. Though it vary from person-to-person too, some are mature enough to understand things; still some sought help of aging and experience to learn strange realities of life.

When I think of being 18 now (at this age), it seems such a young age where you try to extract the essence from things you are not aware of. That can be dangerous too, you know πŸ™‚

Rest … one thing we should our children is the power in praying and faith in Almighty!!

Very well written………..

Mash’ALlah little sis

I just noticed your slogan at the bottom of the page.
Love it!!!

If every chicld at 18 begings to understand, and believe in these thoughts, he/she will live the future life a lil wiser. But, 18 like already said above, is a very young age, where not much goes into the head πŸ™‚

Zios ….. Thats a very good thing to teach kids. And i hope that coming generations will be more towards Allah than nonsense crap…… πŸ™‚

Ummabdurrahman ….. Thank you for those kind and sweet words. I do enjoy your page and your visits too. Keep visiting ….. πŸ˜‰

Fatima ….. Thank you , May Allah bless you too.Ameen

a s m a …… Agreeing with you, I would wanna add a thing or two. Today a child of 18 years of age knows far better things than we did when we were at that age,if not maturity then somethings which isnt important for them to know .. You know what i mean ??? . I blame generation gap which seems to change immensely.

The Angry Muslimah
….. Thank you,

…. Did you ? I liked it too. Do you want its source, I can give its original place if you want to have your own slogan.

Mona ….. πŸ˜‰ I know .
