Today something new. I have never been in Turkyie and muslim religion is quite far from me, much farther than hindu even (not mentioning Christian), however think Beyhan's text is worth to copy-paste on my blog. At least because of huge scar of muslim religion around the world, thinking that each of them is a terrorit. I really hate that! Once even my indian friend, who is hindu, told me he's scared of muslim people, because of terrorism. Even when he walks through the street, he thinks these people can and want to attack him. How stupid it is?!! I hate general thinking about anyone. Wrrr!!!
If you think muslims people are really terrorists and the only one thing, which they think about is fuck everything and everyone out and make the world as they wish, read below. The only one thing which I see in this text is LOVE. And PEACE.
Today is fiesta in Turkiye.
What would happen if i was in Turkiye, In the morning i would wake up early and prepare for namaz and after achiving to convince my father to go to mosque , we would be on the way to mosque. But while u are going to mosque, you must not wear new shoes otherwise u might lose them :). ( This is very rare but it happens )
Pray takes 1 hour or a little more, because u will be listening the imam at mosque "as usual he will be speaking about peace on the world and at the end he will be asking the helps for mosque :)"
After pray, a huge crowd will be trying to get out from the mosque and it will take a while to get out and most probably you will see that ur shoes are not at the same place where u left them + someone had already step on them.But since we see the same scenes for last 16 years , you will not mind.
When u get out from the mosque, you will see the older people, it does not matter u know them or not, you will start to celebrate their fiesta and kiss their hands and move to your head.And they will kiss u too.If you are a little kid, they will give u a candy or a little money after u say ur good wishes :). I used to collect my money to buy a big gift for myself or if there was not enough money i used to spend it on chips + cola + ice cream + fire crackers + small explosives things :). he heh.
When u go back to home, it is time to celebrate ur family's fiesta and grab some money. Not in these days anymore. I have a feeling like, instead of getting money, i may lose a small amount of cash by giving to others :). But i would like to spend my money as that. Happy family, happy kids, happy nation , at least for a while ....
If you are an old person , u must not worry about visting ur neighbours , they need to come to ur house. When they come u need to serve them sweets and some nice colaigne(Usually lemon colaigne).Maybe 15 mins chat and they will leave to visit others.So first 2 days passes as that.
What is most i like is, most of your relatives comes to oldest family member's house, all the cousins , uncles and aunts they are all together for at least one night. a looooong nice chat , food together and games together, bbq and drinks.it is a good reason and chance to see everyone.
