HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Abu Bakrah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: Delivering the sermon during the Farewell Pilgrimage on the day of Sacrifice at Mina, the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) said, "Verily your blood, your property and your honour are as sacred and inviolable as the sanctity of this day of yours, in this month of yours and in this town of yours. Verily! I have conveyed this message to you.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith tells us that the tenth day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah, and the city of Makkah are sacred. Similar is the case of blood, property and honour of a Muslim to another Muslim. In other words, a Muslim should neither kill another without any lawful reason nor should he usurp his property nor should he disgrace him. Since backbiting is also a kind of tyranny which defames a person, it should be strictly avoided.

I miss the way we would sit side by side counting memories of the past.

I miss the way your words would tumble from your lips straight into my heart.

I miss the way your sparkling eyes would brighten up the veiled darkness of my soul.

I miss the way your warm voice would calm the pounding thoughts that would sneak into my mind.

I miss the way everything about you would leave me feeling peaceful, calm and rejuvenated.

Without you, I'm restless.
I miss you my mother.
I miss you my mother.
May Allah grant you a special abode in Jannah. May HE be pleased with you.

(Nashreen Kassim)

The mathematicians are baffled: "By heart? You are kidding?"
The physics-students ask: "Why?"
The engineers sigh: "Do we have to?"
The chemistry-students ask: "Till next Monday?"
The accounting-students (scribbling): "Till tomorrow?"
The laws-students answer: "We already have."
