riyada in arabic means "training" or "discipline". It was used by the arabs in relation to horse taming. Sufis refer to their discipline as "riyadat an-nafs": disciplining the soul / training the ego. Today, the word riyada has come to mean "sports". There is an Arabic proverb that says: "The purpose of sports (riyada) is not to win cups, but to discipline the soul". This blog is here to help me discipline my soul and train my body.

...i'm going to Beirut, Lebanon tomorrow morning (Friday the 14th), until Monday the 17th when I will go to Amman, Jordan inshalla for 7 or 8 days... (Spring Break). Then I gotta get back to Cairo to resume my studies. (I can get more personal now that I'm not crusading anymore).

Anyway, it's tough to get things in order when travelling so inshalla i'll get things going once i'm back here.
