When he went to Basra as governor of the city, he called the inhabitants to a meeting and addressed them: "The Amir al-Muminin, Umar, has sent me to you to teach you the Book of your Lord and the Sunnah of His Prophet and to clean your streets for you."

People were taken aback when they heard these words. They could easily understand that one of the responsibilities of a Muslim ruler was to instruct people in their religion. However, that one of his duties should be to clean streets was something new and surprising to them.

Who was this governor of whom the Prophet's grandson, al-Hasan RA said: "There was no rider who came to Basra who was better for its people than he."

His real name was Abdullah ibn Qays but he was and continues to be known as Abu Musa al-Ashari RA. He left his native land, the Yemen, for Makkah immediately after hearing that a Prophet had appeared there who was a man of rare insight, who called people to the worship of One God and who insisted on the highest standards of morality. read more

A Poem Composed By Abdullah Panjwani, a student who unfortunately had to take an indefinite medical break because of a severe and very rare chronic illness called CRPS or RSD. During this break he composed this poem.

Tears in my eyes, rolling down my cheeks,
What is it, oh pain, that you truly seek?

Break me, is that what's your goal?
Well then, friend, get ready for an almighty brawl.

From daybreak to sunset you may take the acclaim,
And for all the restless nights you
Give me, the same

There were two friends; one was a Doctor and the other an Engineer…
One day they both entered a chocolate store. Upon seeing that the people in the store were busy, the Doctor stole 3 chocolate bars.

As they left the store, the Doctor said to the Engineer: “Man I’m the best thief ever, I stole 3 chocolates and no one saw me, you can’t beat that.”

The Engineer replied: “You wanna see something better? Let’s go back to the store and I’ll show you real stealing.”

So they went to the counter and the Engineer said to the Shopkeeper: “Do you wanna see magic?”
The Shopkeeper replied: “Okay!”
The Engineer said: “Give me one chocolate bar.”
The shopkeeper gave him one, and he ate it.
He asked for the second, and he ate that as well.
He asked for the third, and finished that one too.

The shopkeeper asked: “But where’s the magic?”
The Engineer replied: “Check in my friend’s pocket, and you’ll find them.”
