Got Me Thinking......

I watched Clash of the Titans, did not see this in cinema because I heard it was not very good, but yesterday I bought it and thought it was a very entertaining film. I don't believe in Greek mythology, I think it is fascinating but I dont believe in it and from my previous post's i gather you would have realised I'm Muslim.

Then this film got me thinking have we come to and age where man thinks he is better than god? Was this a representation of society today where many chose not to believe in the scriptures and prophets of God?

I personally do find it hard to believe that people don't think God exists, I have grown up in a religious household and have many friends who come from different faiths and they all have faith in God. I also have friends who believe in nothing and always debate this matter, for debate is healthy to see other people views and why they have them.

Like this film I think people expect so much from God, and think why are there problems, there shouldn't be problems, everything should be wonderful all the time. But we are no longer in the garden of Eden, we are in a world where there is right and wrong and where the devil is free to try and tempt people into rejecting faith. His greatest trick of making man think he doesn't exist seems to working I don't wanna force my views on people, but I have views and this film got me thinking about myself and my faith. Do I pray five times a day everyday, no I don't, and I think I should as this is what god has asked of me.

The film goes onto say that the Greek gods need the humans prayers, but god doesn't need my prayers, I need them. I need them to purify my soul for each of us will leave this world alone, my faith and what I believe in needs them. He created this world and created me, if he wants he can create many more for he is the creator. Other people may have seen this film and thought nothing of it, but it got me and I think that may have been part of the message the director was sending out. It made me look at myself as a person and what more I maybe should do, in the form of prayer, charity and generally helping people where I can.

Also like the end of the film, the devil will lose and man will realise that they cant compete with the creator. I have faith!

We bought tickets to the hottest gig in town way back, after work and a stressful drive into the city (LONDON TRAFFIC PLUS CAR CRASH AND ROAD BEING BLOCKED BY POLICE). I finally got to the Hammersmith Apollo, I refuse to call it the HMV Apollo but we wont go into that its a whole other blog post, the queue was the longest thing i had seen in my life and these people were excited. My lovely friend Ree Ree covered this for us because she got us on guest list and we skipped the queue and went through the box office queue (Thankfully).

Back to the concert, J Cole started the gig and killed it, he practically slayed it. The dude was that good and i was like shit don't even care if Drake comes on now. For my Blog followers i have been hyping up J Cole from way back when i heard his mix tape and he did not disappoint, he is gonna be the star that i said he would be.

The track of the night from him, for me personally, was dead presidents - he massacred that track. Yes if y'all don't know who J Cole is you best find out and you can follow him on twitter, search - JColeNC.

Then Drake came on and he was charismatic, wooed all the females in the audience - the guy could have gone home with every chick if he wanted to - and yes i am jealous. He had the crowd eating out the palm of his hand. His singing and rapping ability was flawless LIVE and he let everyone know how much of an asset he is to the Hip Hop community. I have been to many hip hop concerts and there has just been a Black and Asian crowd, but this crowd was every bit as mixed as London. It made me proud to be British and showed the mixture or people who love Hip Hop. I would go so far and say this was on par with my favorite ever concert, which was Lupe Fiasco in Somerset House.

Drake performed all his classics and not one person could have left that building disappointed. If they did they must have been sleeping because this young fresh talent is everything Hip Hop needs. The fireworks also where amazing and the set was simple but the performances on that set were extraordinary.
