Encouragement towards seeking knowledge and acting upon it

By Sh Muhammad Al-‘Uthaymeen

Praise be to Allaah, Who has created the heavens and the earth and the types of darkness and light. Praise be to Allaah, Who preferred knowledge to ignorance. He, the Exalted and Almighty, said what means: “Is one who worships devoutly during the hours of the night, prostrating himself or standing (in adoration), who takes heed of the hereafter, and who places his hope in the Mercy of his Lord (line one who does not)? Say: "Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know?” It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition.” (Az-Zumar: 9).

I testify that there is no god but Allaah, with Whom there are no partners, Who is Well-Aware of what sustains the viability of knowledge and the validity of religion. I testify that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger, who said: “When Allaah desires good for someone, He gives him understanding of religion.” (Bukhaari & Muslim) May Allaah bless him, his family, his Companions, and those who will follow their example until the Day of Judgment!

When Completing Wudhu (Ablution)

Ashhadu an la ilaha illal-lahu wahdahu la shareeka lah, wa-ashhadu anna Muhammadan AAabduhu warasooluh. ‘I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.’

Allahummaj-AAalnee minat-tawwabeena wajAAalnee minal-mutatahhireen.

‘O Allah, make me of those who return to You often in repentance and make me of those who remain clean and pure.’

(Makes 1 large cake)
4 extra large eggs, separated. 125 ml castor sugar (105 g). 60 ml Snowflake self-raising flour (35 g). 60 ml cocoa powder (25 g). Castor sugar for rolling.

Beat egg yolks and castor sugar until light and pale. Sift flour and cocoa powder and add to egg mixture, beating well. Beat egg whites until soft-peak stage and fold in with a metal spoon. Spread in a lined and greased 23 cm x 32 cm Swiss roll tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 10 12 minutes. Remove from oven and leave to cool slightly. Turn out onto a clean, dry tea towel sprinkled well with castor sugar. Trim edges to ensure rolling without breaking. Remove paper carefully and roll it up with the sugared cloth. Leave it for about 5 minutes, then unroll and leave it to cool further.

For filling
Beat cream and sugar until thickened. Spread over the Swiss roll and sprinkle peppermint crisp over it. Roll up.

A group at a MENSA (IQ 150+) meeting were having lunch at a local restaurant when one noticed that the salt shaker was filled with pepper and the pepper shaker was filled with salt.

After a lengthy discussion they determined that they could swap the contents to match the correct shakers. All they needed was a straw and an empty saucer.

They called over their waitress (IQ much less than 150) and pointed out their concerns. Without hesitation she switched the lids, said "problem solved", and walked away from the now shocked and silenced Mensa table.
