Jabir Ibn Haiyan, the alchemist Geber of the Middle Ages, is generally known as the father of ehemistry. Abu Musa Jabir Ibn Hayyan, sometimes called al-Harrani and al-Sufi, was the son of the druggist ( Attar ). The precise date of his birth is the subject of some discussion, but it is established that he practised medicine and alchemy in Kufa around 776 A.D. He is reported to have studied under Imam Ja'far Sadiq and the Ummayed prince Khalid Ibn Yazid. In his early days, he practised medicine and was under the patronage of the Barmaki Vizir during the Abbssid Caliphate of Haroon al-Rashid. He shared some of the effects of the downfall of the Barmakis and was placed under house arrest in Kufa, where he died in 803 A.D. read more

I see you, the mum barely awakes trying to make it through the day without sleeping for more than an hour the night before,

I see you, the flustered red faced mum trying to control her tantrum throwing toddler at the mall.

I see you, the mum that cooked a fresh meal from scratch only to have her baby spit it out over & over again.

I see you, the bone tired mum doing the laundry the cleaning the cooking & taking care of the kids while still doing a nine to five job.

I see you, the stay at home mum trying to entertain her little one all the while needing to go to the toilet or have a shower or just 5min of alone time.

I see you, the mum rushing to do school runs soccer practice, swimming lessons.

I see you, the new mum all bewildered & tired from taking care of a new born.

I see you, the mum waiting & worried about her teenage kids missing curfew.

I see you, all but most of all I feel you so let's celebrate, motivate, encourage and just be there to lift the spirits of all these beautiful super mums out there, instead of judging or criticizing lets be there to cheer for one another because every mum is a super hero...

Delightful chicken with garlic cloves, vinegar and pepper garnished with lemon, and basil.

4 chicken Breast Halves (skinless and boneless)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 tblsp Lemone Juice
1 tsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper according to taste
2 tblsp Margarine or Butter
½ tsp Lemon Zest (grated)

How to make lemon garlic chicken:
Drizzle chicken with salt, paprika and pepper. In a skillet melt butter or margarine over medium-high heat. Combine chicken to skillet when pan becomes hot. Fry chicken on each side till it is slightly browned: it takes about 2-3minutes. Place the chicken on a baking sheet. Sprinkle half of the lemon juice over the chicken. Bake it in a preheated oven to 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Mix garlic to the hot pan and fry till it appears brown in color; it will take about 1to 2 minutes. Combine lemon zest to the pan after 2 minutes. Reduce by half, then cover it and set aside. Combine lemon juice over the chicken once again. Pour the remaining lemon juice over the chicken once again. Bake for another 5 minutes. Take it out. Place chicken over dish of rice. Spoon the sauce on it. Garnish with some lemon-twists, sage or basil.
