Abu Bakr, as-Siddiq, RA was born in 573 A.D. at Makkah. Thus he was two years younger than the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam). He belonged to a respectable and noble family, the Bani Tamim, a branch of Quraish Tribe. His lineage joins with that of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam) six generations before. His name was Abdullah. Abu Bakr was his patronymic name (or Kuniyah) which became so famous that most of the people did not know his real name.

Since his boyhood, Abu Bakr RA was a quiet and sincere man. He was very honest and truthful. Because of his sterling character he was the closest friend of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam) since his youth and, the friendship proved to be life-long. He was a soft hearted man and keenly felt others sufferings and miseries. He used to help the poor and the needy, the distressed and the downtrodden. read more

Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

My beloved Almighty ALLAH...

Thank YOU for my senses.
I can see, smell, feel, hear and taste.

I can see this beautiful world and make my mark.
Create my own identity,
Be myself, to do good and follow the correct way of an Islamic life that will please YOU.

I can smell the aroma of mother's food and wait in anticipation for her sweet voice calling to eat from her hands.
I can taste the exotic dishes she so lovingly makes and be grateful for a full tummy.
Others are not so lucky.

Bad Idea: A severe drought and poor maintenance had done a number on the sewers of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. And because of insufficient water pressure, the pipes kept clogging, causing some to burst. So, without the benefit of a massive plunger, what’s a city to do? Simple, said the town council. Twice a week, citizens will simultaneously flush their toilets in order to produce enough water pressure in the sewer system to dislodge clogs.

It Worked! One resident told the Associated Press, “So far, the flushing of the toilets has been a success.”
