I could say that my journey to Islam began before I was even aware of it.

I was born with a progressive hearing loss. 

My mother did not realize that I had difficulties hearing until I was 4 years old. 

Once it was discovered, I received my first hearing aids, and began attending a school where hearing and deaf children were integrated.

At first I was placed in classes that contained only deaf children. Then I began to attend some classes with hearing children, and I had a teacher come to help me learn how to integrate. I felt at home there. I did not realize that I was being prepared to leave the school and go to a mainstream public school.

info-pictogram1 A Johns Hopkins University study shows that for big segments of the population the American dream is dead. Johns Hopkins University researchers followed nearly 800 Baltimore schoolchildren for decades. What they discovered isn’t pretty: These children’s fates “were substantially determined by the family they were born into.” Correspondent Adam May joins some of those children on a “tour” – from prison, to schools, to the blighted neighborhoods they called home – to understand what the chances really are of escaping urban poverty in America.

Twins Don’t Know That They Have Been Born Yet – Newborns Mimicking Life In The Womb (Video)

info-pictogram1 In this video posted by a French nurse, the newborn twins can’t seem to stop hugging right after being born. As beautiful as this video is, the funny thing is that the nurse Sonia Rochel actually filmed and posted it to display a new bathing technique for babies, not knowing she would capture something to aw-inspiring. As TODAY Moms points out, “They’re already born, but they might not know it yet. This video of a unique bath is offering an amazing look at what life must like for twins in the womb, with the babies cuddling and embracing as if they were still in their mom’s belly.”

Yasiin Bey: Life Is Good (Poetry)

Yasiin-Bey-LIVEFROMAFRICA-wide

By: Yasiin Bey

Wake up in the mornin!
And I give thanks and praise, Open up the gift called a brand new day
This life is fantastic
It’s easy
It’s hard
It’s intense
It’s young
And on and on and on!
Road around hometown on the day I was born
There somethings changed and don’t change at all
Like the ghetto feel the pressure on coppas keep stepin on them, hungry got their chopper loaded and it could pop at any moment
Say a prayer for the sick and the sufferin
The odd-turners
The hardworkers
And hustlers
The sinner and saints
The cons and there customers
I came up with them
I keep in touch with them
I show love for them
And show love again
I plant a seed and grow love again
It’s most elegant
It’s celebrated long time
A lovely the horn that starts decorated voice that of imagination, inspiration information
Salute to Zulu Nation!
It’s like peace
Unity
Love
Let’s have some fun

Imagine yourself at the moment of your death.

What thoughts cross your mind? Memories of family and friends? Panic? Regrets? Remembrance of Allah? What is death? What happens to us after we die? What is life in the Hereafter like, this new and strange world after death? Do we lose consciousness of this life? Where does our soul go? Do we feel and think the same?

info-pictogram1 Stingrays have broad fins that run the full length of their bodies, giving them a flat, roundish shape. To swim, some stingrays move their whole bodies in a wavy motion that propels them through the water. Other species flap their fins like bird wings and “fly” through the water.
