Can you Believe this.................Please Help

I was on facebook this morning and this is what I seen, so yes there is a group like this. There is another group that I joined this morning that is against this group and If they had reached a certain amount of people that joined the group will be closed, but unfortunately it has not been closed.

Here is the name of the group We want Facebook to close this group "koran toilet paper roll"

I have no idea how to get hold of facebook but I do think that we muslims should stand together in this matter, it is really upsetting to see this happening,


The choicest of Blessings, Salutations, Salaams and
Durood upon our Beloved Nabi Mohammed (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam),
All praise to Almighty Allah for granting us another Jumma so that we can make use of this
auspicious day to strengthen our Imaan and make dua in huge congregations around the globe.

On this Mubaarak day, Wishing you:

not just a smile but laughter,

not just happiness but pure joy,

not just wealth but Heavens treasures

and not just silence but Divine peace.

Make the remembrance of Allah (SWT) my garment, Ya Allah
Every utterance from my mouth be Your dhikr, Ya Allah
Instead of breath, It should be Your dhikr from my throat, Ya Allah
Let this Dhikr never leave me
And be the last thing on my tongue O Creator.
La iIlaha Illallahu Muhammadur Rasullulah

Read Salaah punctually, read it with care
On judgement day, we will be asked about prayer
That’s the first question, so take this advice
Salaah is the key to paradise

Salaah will separate Muslims from others
Salaah is a blessing which Allah swt gave
It will intercede and protect us in the grave

When it comes eventually, to the day of rising
The believer’s body washed by Wudhu will be shining
For the believers who are regular in offering Salaah
It becomes a light of guidance on the pul-siraat

Interesting Conversation

I had an interesting conversation now...

It went as follows:

“With tonight Inshallah being the start of Ramadaan, for the next few weeks...such will be the abundance of food.

Which we do not have all year through...”

Is this what Ramadaan has been reduced to?

I sit and reflect what Ramdaan means to me – these are the glorious days in which the Almighty grants each belier the opportunity to do good which is multiplied tenfold. A time in which the Qura’an was revealed and can be used to reflect and

its message entrenched within our lives so that from here forth we can practise upon and become better Muslims...

it’s a time for when we reflect on our own lives, those of our Brethren and the Ummah do they feel with these pangs of hunger...are we cleansing our minds, bodies and souls yet feeding our bellies with no afterthought for the Aakirah....Will Allah be pleased with how we treat this blessed and beloved month of Ramadaan?

Help me Oh reader and share with me your I the only one who thinks Ramadaan is a month of taking stock and reflecting on our lives as Muslims....??

Makes Sense??!

..something to think about...

Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 minutes a middle aged man noticed there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried to meet his schedule.

4 minutes later:

the violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

6 minutes:

A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

10 minutes:

A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly.

The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time.

This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced their children to move on quickly.

45 minutes:

The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.

1 hour:

He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a true story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people's priorities. The questions raised: in a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One conclusion reached from this experiment might be this: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made.... How many other things are we missing?

Mermaid or Whale?

Recently, in large French city, a poster featuring a young, thin and tanned woman appeared in the window of a gym. It said:


A middle aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.

To Whom It May Concern:

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans). They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have adorable baby whales.

They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Barren Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia. Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don't exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human? They don't have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them not to mention how could they have sex? Therefore they don't have kids either. Not to mention who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me; I want to be a whale.

P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver and a coffee with my friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think:

Good gosh, look how smart I am........
