Thank You And Goodbye..

What do you know, the time has come for me to close this space. And i could not find a better day than 1st of Ramadan 1429 (1st of September 2008) for such an occasion.

I am not sure if I will blog again or not, this is something only time will decide. As far as I am concerned, after 2 years and 5 days... this Blog has done its purpose.

Fadfadation places his hand on the "Submit" button for maybe the last time ever... and...

كل سنة وانت طيب وربنا يتقبل منا ومنكم صالح الاعمال
وبعدين فكر تانى وتالت قبل ما تتخذ قرار زى ده وتسيب التدوين

nesrina said...

Good riddance

Jade said...

Hey Fedfad,
Dont you just wonder what this anonymous commenter leaving you a "Good Riddance" note is doing here in the first place??

These people are so confused about their identities ya haram... Oh well.
Yeah - & about this whole quitting thing... Dont know what to say.

Issues will always keep coming up & what other nady do you think of moving to other than correcting the image of Islam around the world? Even educating Muslims about their own religion & history?

Well in any case... I think you're just going through a writer's block & will be back someday - be sure to let us know where you'll go from here.

Ramadan Kareem 3aleik & you whole family. Enjoy the month & rejoice...

Fadfadation said...

Walahi ya gama3a the only thing i know it might be just a blogger's bad spell that will go away when i have a big change around me.

As for the anon (and the likes)... "Dogs can bark, yet the carravan moves along" ;P

Interesting timing for resigning :P) Hateddarwesh? :o)

Shimaa Gamal said...

enta mesh nawy terga3 ba2a? :(

Fadfadation said...

THanks for asking :)

By the looks of it, no time soon ya ostaza SHaimaa. Nothing has changed... yet!

Al Masri Al Hor said...

I just came across your blog and as I was just saying to myself what an interesting blog, I stumbled on your decision to throw in the towel!

Is there any thing we can do to help?

Basically Egypt and the Arab Nation and I suppose the Muslim world and in fact the whole world need people like you and all those moderate honest bloggers who seek a better just society for all.

I add my voice to the others to wish you all he best in the future and to say:

Etha Al Sha3bo Yawoman Araad al Hayata flaabuda an Yastageeba Al Kadar.......

Hope you reconsider.

Fadfadation said...

Thanks Masri :)

I think it is just a matter of time.

Might take a while though.

Brownie said...

i hope it just a break

Fadfadation said...

ISA it will be just a break.

A relatively long one though :)

BuJassem said...

i had a blog and i closed it, so i am not one to talk, but i REALLY REALLY hope you decide to post again.. i just came across your blog recently and i really like it.. especially the Cairo jokes and the Don't Argue with a Sufi posts :)

Whatever you do, take care and may God be with you.

Fadfadation said...

Ya Bujassem, eh el kalam el 7elw dah :)

stranger said...

salam. it's a very enlightening blog i should say. It's a pity that you've made such decision, but i guess it's for a greater good. May peace be upon you, and may Allah keeps you safe. May those who stumbled across this blog, manage to grab something valueable from it. Keep thinking, brother!

Fadfadation said...

Thank you stranger.

The word "brother" meant a lot to me :)

Anonymous said...

Nour

Fadfadation said...

Nour,

THank you for your supportive words :)

The reasons are various. From not much time to answer critisism to us (as arabs or muslims) extensively to feeling that i touched the main points i wanted to talk about,...etc.

Yet, i have a feeling i will blog once more...when or where... no idea yet.

BonjourMissChica said...

Im not sure if my other comment got posted, but i just wanted to say that your blog has helped me sooooo much in my deen. thank you so much for clearing up many issues for me.

salaam alaikum brother

Fadfadation said...

But seriously, you have to come back. There are a lot of things that you should write about, you can start with things that won't bring much debate untill you are back to you full mood again!!
Give it another thought man:)

(formerly frustrated)

Fadfadation said...

I know i will ISA... one day :)

Shimaa Gamal said...

A good debate should put you back on the mood :)) don't be lazy pleeeaaassseeeeeeeeeee. Make this one day today!

Fadfadation said...

Problem is, what if i have nothing to say?

what if i will just be repeating what i already said....

it will feel fruitless

Shimaa Gamal said...

It is not that there is nothing to be said. There will always be something new, even in the old subjects. Different angles open new discussions.
Just try to break the ice. And don't be lazy :)

INAS said...

you took logtime for yourself it is time to comeback

CrisisMaven said...

Have you gotten a new blog somewhere by now?

Fadfadation said...

i have actually thought of that to aviod many things, but till now...nope.

Shimaa Gamal said...

knock knock

Ramadan kareem

don't u miss blogging? :)

Fadfadation said...

The knob turns, the door slowly opens, and an old gumrpy man shows up...
"meeeeeeeeeeeeeeen?"
lol

Hi Shaimaa, wala zaman :)

Actually, i do miss it...sort of that is.
EL kasal weee shera el demaa3' min el arguments wee keda i guess are the main things stopping me.

I was actually thinking lately that i have to go back and start reading the news and all the blogs i used to read (ba2aly shohoor i haven't).

hope all is well on your side ISA.
