جان‎/jan/jān/jaan [jaan]

(noun) Jan/jaan is one of those specials words which lends itself across cultures and languages as a term of endearment and affection meaning, love, dear, heart, and life in East Asia. Arab/Persian: In Arabic, jan represents beloved one or dear. The Persian origins of this word mean life, equivalent to the Punjabi and Hindi definition. Calling a person your jaan, in comparison to the Arab and Persian culture, in South East Asian countries is an act of true love and intimiacy, and not used as liberally as the Persian connotation. Its true origins stem from Sanskrit. In Urdu you often refer to your lover and those your are close to as “meri jaan [meh-ree jaan],” also meaning my life, and my dear. It has a deeper emotional meaning than merely calling someone your love, or sweetheart; it is used in the essence of true love.

I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.

If womens rights in the muslim world especially Saudi Arabia were implemented by what’s stated in surat al nisa (chapter of the women ) in the Quran and not barbaric backward minded ignorant muftis, Muslim women would be travelling to space never mind driving a car .

Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.

Writing is something you do alone. It’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don’t want to make eye-contact while telling it.

Dear Allah


Enlighten what is dark in me, Strengthen what is weak in me, Mend what is broken in me, Bind what is bruised in me, Heal what is sick in me, Straighten what is crooked in me, And revive whatever peace has died in me. Ameen.

The angel on my left, be slow in writing my bad deeds for I may ask for forgiveness before the ink dries.

The angel on my right, be fast in writing my good deeds before I sin.
