...Of Dreams Yet to Come True

I dream to see the poverty in my country diminish every day. To see young men able to get married & not get left out due to their financial status.

I dream to see policemen in my country treat us like humans... citizens. Treat me like their sister, & men like their brothers.

I dream to see the young educated rich guys who do drugs every night on the side of my street quit wasting time & start writing down their own dreams.

I dream to see taxi drivers stop swearing at girls just to get an extra pound.

I dream to see men look at women as human beings with intellectual minds & not just "pretty delicate little things".

I dream to see the public bus driver not speed his vehicle at the moment an old woman is trying to climb in, letting her fall off, & get left behind.

I dream to see the people of my street pray fajr prayer at the empty mosque nearby.

I dream to one day go vote for a Leader that I would read about, respect and choose.

I dream to see religious people apply Islam like it truly deserves... with their hearts, minds & souls.

I dream to eat bread made of wheat of my own land, watered by my own river Nile.

I dream to walk my future children through the country and tell them, " Once, long ago, when your mother was young; prices were high, people were poor & every street was traffic jammed... but now thank God, everything is fine... and you'll live yet to see better days."

Will come back soon inshAllah for more dreams yet to come true... Till then, dream along with me, won't you?

I dream with you!


Very well put...


What is amazing in what you wrote is that these are only dreams and I don't think we are going to see changes in them in our lives. but we can never loose the hope that one day who knows what will happen.

'I dream to see the people of my street pray fajr prayer at the empty mosque nearby.'
If that hapens, the rest will most probably take place.. 'cuz that's 'alamat almu'min..
Luv u..
I'm simplice mente's sis..

and i totally agree wid ma sis...
miss u sis..

I truely loved you dreams especially:

"I dream to see religious people apply Islam like it truly deserves... with their hearts, minds & souls".

"I dream to eat bread made of wheat of my own land, watered by my own river Nile" and I am adding to this one "baked at our homes".

Wow!im transportd to a diff egypt.but as a foreigner who lived in egypt 4almost a yr,my view differs slightly.the political oppresn,n the poverty is terribl.i feel sorry 4the policemen who r frm poor villages n themselvs victimisd.i was awed by the site of a streetsweeper readin salaah on 6th oct bridge.i loved the daily fresh bread.i hate the disparity btn rich n poor.taxi drivers r the same ever

Everywhere.i didnt like the hypocricy of ppl,n i found the greatest sincerity in the poor. I wil always have fond memories of my time there,and i do hope that ur dream of a better egypt can b realisd.

I dream with you too! Thank you :)

Ragin Raven,
Amen :)

Thank u... Amen again!

Yes... who knows what'll happen? The newspapers here are stinking with bad news, everyday a surprise awaits us... however, I do believe that the more it blackens, the nearer we are to dawn...

I thought so too :) (that you're both sisters lol)... Oh Fajr prayer in the masjed, it is hard... I agree, if they do that, they'll be able to conquer anything else inshAllah.

Simplice mente,
Thank you dear :) It just reflects what we all want doesn't it?

Baked in our own homes... WOW! That is definitely a lovely dream, thank you.

Your view is really thoughtful sister,the poor here are everywhere yes... desperate, hopeful and silent... Sincere too subhanAllah! I try not to visualize the footsteps my country is walking through, but what I know best is that the good will remain, Allah will never allow it to vanish inshAllah.
