“Do not allow your hatred for a people move you to be unjust…” Qur’an 5:8

One of the sad realities of our age is the way some Muslims are allowing their hatred of the Muslim Brotherhood to justify atrocities to be committed against innocent people.

Eagles’ eyes have a million light-sensitive cells per square mm of retina, five times more that a human’s 200,000. While humans see just three basic colours, eagles see five. These adaptations gives eagles extremely keen eyesight and enable them to spot even well-camouflaged potential prey from a very long distance. In fact the eagles’ vision is among the sharpest of any animal and studies suggest that some eagles can spot an animal the size of a rabbit up to two miles away!
