Life without inspiration is like a childhood without magic, writes Fatima Moolla of Timeless Teenz.

In order to help us overcome life’s challenges and drive us towards our potential we’re in constant need of motivation. Many would think that adults inspire youth, but that’s not true because we’re actually inspired by people who have accomplished so much at a really young age. They are the people who look beyond their struggles and refuse to be limited by what others think of them and open windows to possibilities.

Celebrities are not necessarily influential in society anymore because most are leading corrupt, valueless lives. Youth have an inclination towards world icons like Mandela and prominent personalities like Mufti Menk who don’t just inspire, but teach us how to live an inspirational life. As Muslims we are so fortunate to have the rich legacy of the greatest of men to walk the surface of the earth, Nabi (Salallahu alaihi wasalam). While we look up to legacies of the past, we also need someone to lift us up every time we are knocked down. There is need for support and motivation in order to stand tall and reach for the stars. read more

The saliva of a dog is impure, but the dog itself is not impure. So if a dog touches anyone's body or clothes, they will not become impure irrespective of whether the dog's body is dry or wet. However, it will be a different case if there is some Najaasat on the dog's body.

If they say they're John Doe from XYZ Company, ask them to spell their name. Then ask them to spell the company name. Then ask them where it is located, how long it has been in business, how many people work there, how they got into this line of work, are they married?, kids?, etc. Continue asking them personal questions or questions about their company for as long as necessary.

Say "No", over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each one, and keep a rhythmic tempo, even as they are trying to speak. This is most fun if you can do it until they hang up.

Tell them to talk VERY SLOWLY, because you want to write EVERY WORD down.
