Help the Sweet Little Girl
She is a 3 years old girl found in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia 2 month ago. Seems she got lost and no body there has so far reported her missing. Due to her age they are unable to get any information of her family. The sad story is that sometimes she puts mobile phone on her ear and keep crying and calling Baba Baba (Dad...Dad)
I have received this message from a friend and placing it on my blog with the hope that any single contact may play important role in the girl's destiny... As the range of this list varies across different countries (yours may as well) someone may happen to recognize the girl or may have heard about missing child...
CONTACT: The child is now with Jamaiat Al-Nahdah (Al Nahdah Charity) in Riyadh. Their contact details as follows:
Public Relation, Media Division
Phone # 01 465 0029.
Come on lovers of human values. Publish this on your blogs and also circulate it through e-mail to your acquaintances.
Many thanks to all who will make a try.
Islam is Islam
Islam is Islam and there is nothing like moderate Islam, enlightened Islam, true Islam or real Islam. These terms appear to have been coined by people to justify their point of view which, generally, is not within the fold of Islam.
A common practice of the so-called developed people (Europe & America) is to dub practices of general people as Islam and then malign it. Unfortunately Muslims, who look towards the Western people for everything, fall prey to this propaganda. There is nothing more misleading than judging Islam from culture or traditions in a Muslim country or from general practices of people who are known as Muslim.
Culture is not permanent or durable. It keeps on changing with time. During my life time, cultures of Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi have changed to a great extent. The culture of Duesseldorf (Germay) that I witnessed during 1966-67 was not there when I visited during 1978. Similarly, I found considerable difference in culture in Britain in 1978 than what I had witnessed when I had visited during 1967. By now it may have further changed.
Then there are traditions, some good and some bad. It is another thing that those following such traditions do bring up Islam, in addition to culture, to justify their actions. Karo Kari, Maani, Wunni, Swara, so-called honour-killing and the like are dictatorial tribal traditions and have nothing to do with Islam, rather, such practices are unequivocally abhorred in Islam.
Our people have started behaving like a pendulum. They go either to one extreme or the other while Qur’aan teaches us “Siratul Woosta” (median way). No where in Islamic Shria, culture has been dubbed as bad, only bad things are bad.
Law, of a country, is what the competent authority of that country promulgates, and it is, also, written in the law books that ignorance of law is no excuse. Thus, law is not what people practice.There is no justification of treating Islam in a different way while Islam is also a law promulgated by the Creator of Universe. Thus, Islam is what Qur’aan says and Hadith explains and not what people practice. May allah guide us to the right path. Aameen.
From America With Love
George Bush visited the Queen of England, and asked her, "Your Majesty, you've been a ruling monarch almost all my life, and I'm impressed. Do you mind if I ask you a question?
How do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?"
"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Bush frowned, "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"
The Queen took a sip of tea, then replied, "Oh, that's easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle. I'll show you." She then pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send The Prime Minister in here, would you?"
Tony Blair walked into the room. "Your Majesty . . . ."
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this, please, Tony. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"
Without pausing for a moment, Blair answered, "That would be me!"
"Yes! Very good!," said the Queen.
Back at the White House, Bush called Vice President Dick Cheney to the Oval Office.
"Dick, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
"I'm not sure," replied the Vice President. "Let me get back to you on that one."
Dick Cheney went to his advisers and asked every one of them, but none could give him an answer. With that he went to the Men's room. Recognizing Colin Powell's shoes in the next stall, Cheney shouted, "Colin! Can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Powell yelled back, "That's easy. It's me!"
Dick Cheney smiled. "Thanks!"
Cheney went back to the Oval Office and asked to speak with Bush. "George, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's Colin Powell."
Bush got up from his desk, stomped over to Cheney, and angrily yelled into his face,
"No, you idiot! It's Tony Blair!"
