Subhana’llah: Grasshopper (IMAGES)


info-pictogram1 Grasshoppers have ears on their bellies. Grasshoppers jump by catapulting themselves into the air. They sometimes “spit” brown liquid to defend themselves.

Noor Inayat Khan led a very unusual life. She was born in 1914 to an Indian Sufi mystic of noble lineage and an American half-sister of Perry Baker, often credited with introducing yoga into America. As a child, she and her parents escaped the chaos of revolutionary Moscow in a carriage belonging to Tolstoy’s son. Raised in Paris in a mansion filled with her father’s students and devotees, Khan became a virtuoso of the harp and the veena, dressed in Western clothes, graduated from the Sorbonne and published a book of children’s tales — all before she was 25.

Humans are like strawberries

By: roadside2islam

We all come from the same seed. We all encounter different things in life, but what sets us apart is our ability to choose how sweet or bitter we become. Strawberries are at the mercy of the person who grows them but people are at the mercy of themselves. We can choose how beautiful or bitter we want to be. Do we want to look big and beautiful on the outside, or do we want to be beautiful on the inside. If we focus on the inside, the eyes of the beholder will eventually find us not for how we look, but our reputation will be enough for them to give us a chance, because we are beautiful inside.



Allah says, “…make not your own hands contribute to your destruction…” (Qur’an 2:195); “…nor kill yourselves…” (Qur’an 4:29).

Overweight and Obesity is One Of the worlds biggest “preventable killers”, with leading risks for global deaths. Over 30% of the world’s population is now either obese or overweight.

No country has been able to curb obesity rates even the Muslim world has been effected and has seen shocking increases, although Islam teaches some protective measures, the most important of which is moderation in eating and the prohibition on extravagance therein.

Allah, may He be exalted, says:

“and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allah) likes not Al-Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)”

[al-A ‘raaf 7:31].

The Messenger of Allah (PBHU) said:
“The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach. It is sufficient for the son of Adam to eat a few mouthfuls to keep him standing upright. But if he must (fill it), then one third for his food, one third for his drink, and one third for his breathing.”

Will Marriage Solve My Problems?


By: Ubah


After engaging more with the Muslim community through activities like da`wah (calling to Islam), conferences, and halaqat (study circles), I have observed something intriguing: there seems to be a fascination—even obsession—with the topic of marriage. Regardless of whether a particular lecture is dedicated to something other than gender relations, the topic of marriage somehow always creeps up.

Documentary: Africa’s Super Seven (Video)

info-pictogram1 In Africa anything can take place in a short period of time, particularly when seven of its most beautiful wild animals confront each other. These are seven glorious animals who exceed all others. Seven characters who govern the African wilderness. Over 24 hours, from day to night, the activity never halts. The cheetah is the unbeaten racer, able to hunt even the most agile prey. But can she educate her cubs how to chase the prey for themselves today? Or will the hyena rob them?

She’s an ingenious vacillator, with offspring too, and will do whatever it takes to feed them and keep them alive. The lion is not just the greatest of Africa’s cats – it’s also a collaborator. And tonight, the group is on the hunt. The buffalo will have to be very careful. But this quiet vegan has an ungenerous attitude towards cats and moves in a big herd… a strength to be looked upon.

The rhino also has terrifying competence, but her poor eyesight and an anxious temperament means she’s the wild card of the super seven. But nothing is more hazardous than a capricious elephant, especially a young one with too much vigor and not enough sensibility. And then there’s the leopard – the master of secrecy. He lives in the darkness and is always ready to attack with surprise. Seven super beasts, one place, one single day. There’s no better place to follow these animals than in south Africa’s Mala-Mala Game Reserve… a very large area of wilderness, abundant with wildlife.

And through it all runs another fascinating feature – the sand river, where this story begins. It’s mid-afternoon and for the animals, this is the real start of an African day. They’re coming out from their dark retreats to make use of the remaining daylight. Here you must be ready for anything. No two days are ever the same.
