Birthday – Happy or Not?

Have you ever seen anyone throwing a party on the day before their exam begins? Or have you ever heard about a prisoner celebrating the day they entered their prison cell? Then what about the celebrations that mark the beginning of the test of this world? Does birthday really make sense? Umm Salih has a reminder to share.

Poisson d’avril – Global Day of Lies!

"Police say Angela Timmons, 54, who works at Virginia Colleges in Spartanburg County, texted her daughter just after 10 a.m. claiming she 'could hear gun shots being fired inside the school.' However, the daughter, April Timmons, who lives in New York couldn't get hold of her mom after receiving the message and, c-oncerned, the 34-year-old proceeded to call 911 to report the incident. Sheriff's deputies swarmed the college where they discovered that no shooting had occurred. Sheriff Chuck Wright told WPTV that he was expecting to find a serious situation as he approached the school. 'I'm thinking Columbine High School, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech,' he said. However, the daughter soon called back after receiving a second text from her mom explaining that it was a prank."

A Day of Love or a Day of Lewdness?

The media and the billboards are just pumping you up, as part of their "Let's Attract-More-Customers" plan. More discount deals, more decorations and delicious cup cakes - it's called consumerism. So don't be swept away with the tide. Know your values and stand up for them.

It’s the Month of Muharram…

“Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve (in a year): It was so ordained, by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them, four are sacred. Allah has raised the status of noble deeds in some days in contrast to others, so that the Muslims can extract maximum benefits in those days by devout worshiping and reach the ranks of the righteous predecessors by His mercy. One such month is the month of muharram and one such day is the day of Aashoora (10th Muharram).
