The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

Typo was made during the conversion of UTC times. Meeting of SIA68 and MH320 occurred at 18:00UTC - 18:15UTC. MH320 dropped off of civilian radar at 17:22UTC.

Some have raised the statement that TCAS doesn’t work if the transponder is disabled… this is only partially correct. Other planes TCAS would NOT see MH370 at all. MH370 would not actively query other planes as it’s transponder is off HOWEVER it could still listen to any transponder output from other planes that are actively transmitting. SQ68 would have been actively transmitting while in-range of Subang ATC center.
It is not that Islam doesn’t believe in love so Muslims don’t celebrate Valentines Day and the likes. Rather, the concept of love is SO STRONG in Islam that it refuses to acknowledge anything that downgrades and cheapens this wonderful emotion.
The concept of love is SO WISE in Islam that it protects the dignity, honor and rights of both the man and the woman, and doesn’t let one run away after ‘having their bit of fun.’
The concept of love is SO SACRED in Islam that even feeding your wife a morsel of food is a rewarded, blessed deed. That being good to your husband can be a doorway to Paradise!
The concept of love is SO PRACTICAL in Islam that it is not dependant on gimmicks and commercial promotion. Rather, it is lived through honesty, gentleness and affection each day of the year, each moment of life.
Actually the concept of love is SO AMAZING in Islam that it doesn’t end with this Dunya, rather it binds the hearts that love each other in His Obedience in this life and beyond! A story that perseveres in Dunya and then will enjoy permanent bliss in the hereafter.
And how shall it not be, when Islam is itself from AL-WADOOD, the Most Loving, the Source of all love, the Bestower of this wonderful gift!
There is no faith that advocates love more justly, more deeply than Islam. It celebrates it… wholly and eternally, and doesn’t need the world to say when exactly and how exactly it should be expressed!
Where do you take your definition of LOVE from?
I request you all to please pray for a mutual friend of mine, Br. Zeeshan. He is a member of YM JC who has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. It’s very shocking and heartbreaking to see someone so young go through something like this.
May Allah cure him and have mercy upon him, and make it easy for him and his family.
It’s been a longgg time since I posted, mostly because I got a little lazy as our work started to pile on. I feel like writing again though, again because I’m afraid I’ll forget some of the things that go on during this year and I want to be able to look back and reflect and reminisce about my…
