Story of a Muslim


This story is pretty long but still im insisting everyone to read it... it has touched my heart and i am sure the same will go for all of you...

Must read:

She said: Mohammed, I want you to become a Christian!!
قالت
البنت " يا محمد انا أر...يدك أن تكون مسيحي !!

In the Name of God the Most Compassionate the Most Merciful .

Mohammed boarded the plane... adjusted his seat and fastened his
seatbelt, He was an active attractive young man. He wasn't very
religious and had drifted away from the Lord Almighty...

Atomic Bomb - Nagasaki & hiroshima

Abdul Majeed

The atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, The Bombs had names.. The Fat Man bomb was actually dropped on the former at 11:02 a.m. local time and the Little Boy bomb on the latter at 8:15 a.m. local time.

These two events are the only use of nuclear weapons in war to date. Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day.

Sharbat Gula: The Afghan Girl

Let's meet Sharbat Gula born 1972, famously known as The AFGHAN GIRL....


Gula was living as a refugee in Pakistan during the time of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan when she was photographed. The image brought her recognition when it was featured on the cover of the June 1985 issue of National Geographic Magazine at a time when she was approximately 12 years old. Gula was known throughout the world simply as "the Afghan Girl" .

The photograph has been likened to Leonardo da Vinci's painting of the Mona Lisa] and is sometimes popularly referred to as "the Afghan Mona Lisa"..

The portrait by Steve McCurry turned out to be one of those images that sears the heart. Her eyes are sea green. They are haunted and haunting, and in them you can read the tragedy of a land drained by war.

Foods of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) :Mushroom


Foods of Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

Mushroom:The Prophet (SAW) said that mushroom is a good cure for the eyes; it also serves as a form of birth control and arrests paralysis.

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds, and endless blessings be upon our Beloved Messenger, the Last Prophet of Islam(Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam).

It is clear that mushrooms are not haram.

Mushrooms, are an umbrella shaped vegetable that grow in the earth, out of which some are poisonous. Nevertheless the majority of which are perfect for consumption, once they are washed etc. Mushrooms are grown in the earth, and any form of vegetation that grows in the earth, is consumable, as long as it is not haram, is permissible to eat.

Because mushrooms are not normally consumed in the subcontinent or the middle-east, some people seem to think that the vegetable is haram. Yet any vegetable that is not misused in any way, as magic mushrooms, are sometimes used to satisfy the habit of its users, then the mushroom is deemed to be halal, as long as it is used in the proper way.

Voynich manuscript

Voynich manuscript

The Voynich manuscript, described as "the world's most mysterious manuscript".

The Voynich Manuscript is a medieval document written in an unknown script and in an unknown language. For over one hundred years people have tried to break the code to not avail. The overall impression given by the surviving leaves of the manuscript suggests that it was meant to serve as a pharmacopoeia or to address topics in medieval or early modern medicine. However, the puzzling details of illustrations have fueled many theories about the book’s origins, the contents of its text, and the purpose for which it was intended.

The document contains illustrations that suggest the book is in six parts: Herbal, Astronomical, Biological, Cosmological, Pharmaceutical, and recipes.
