This is Saudi prince Muhammad bin Nayif visiting the victims of the attack on the Imam al-Rida mosque is al-Ihsa.

I guess that it is still a good gesture, but with the recent problems between the Saudi state and Shias in the region, I would have thought that he is the last person that you would want to see

I can imagine him recoiling on seeing his face.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) analysed data from a previous report and found that English teenagers aged 16-19 had the worst literacy levels of developed nations.

The country also had the second worst numeracy levels for this age group.

literacy numeracy

The report also suggested that there may be millions in the UK who “struggle with basic quantitative reasoning or have difficulty with simple written information” and “an estimated nine million working aged adults in England (more than a quarter of adults aged 16-65) with low literacy or numeracy skills or both”.

The OECD report recommends reducing the numbers of those attending university in favour of more further education courses to improve basic skills.

Those who believe that university is the be all and end all should take a step back and think about what kinds of people are actually attending university (in the uk at least)

^^^^^ lt is the pinko destruction of Anglo-American ed-you-kay-shon.   :braveheart:

 

I was appalled at a commercial Saturday. If you have seen it, I am referring to coloring books for adults so they can sooth themselves. For me, this is the same theme, @Ali-Hussein

I we Muslims keep insisting our children get educated and add in some home school we can take-over these people.

After watching this video, now i understand why Rasullah s.a.w told the ummah to hold fast onto his ahlulbayt a.s

 

 

Love of imam Ali a.s does not mean extolling his status and abilities. Love of Ali a.s means to obey him in his commands, to ponder over his words, to form a firm understanding and connection to Allah swt.

The best way to honour Ali a.s is to obey Allah, understand through the words of Rasullah s.a.w and his ahlulbayt a.s who Allah swt is (to our limits ofcourse).


The purpose of rasulla s.a.w and Ali a.s and the remainder of the ahlulbayt a.s, and the previous prophets pbuh were to take us to Allah swt, and not to them. We must look at their behaviour, their actions, form a strong bond and love to the prophets of God and their deputies, but we must make Allah swt our ultimate ends.

Misguidesd is the  one who says 'We are too sinful to have a connection with Allahs swt'.

Our imams a.s in many hadiths which unfortunately, due to the fact we shia's have only recently translated al kafi into english, and unfortunately, the only translation is copyrighted and unavailable free online to the masses like our sunni brothers have of almost all of their books, so i will have to paraphrase the meaning:

The imams a.s and rasullah s.a.w in hadiths tell us that our trust and connection with Allah swt should be even stronger than with them.

My dear brothers and sisters, make not a dua, whether istigatha, tawassul, or directly (do what you feel is right, you will answer for your own selves i am not here to lecture you on this), just make sure somewhere in that dua you atleast remember to mention 'Allah swt' or reference him. The day you make a dua and you have not mentioned or referenced Allah swt in it is a day you ought to reflect on your religion.

These are pictures of a young Iranian boy with cancer whose dream is to become a police officer, and he was able to be a police officer for a day, insha'Allah he will get to fulfill his dream in the future.

It really warms the heart to hear stories like this, sometimes all it takes in a minimal amount of effort to bring a little bit of joy to someone's life, but we are unwilling even to do that, though it doesn't cost us anything, nice to see that there are still some decent people out there.

Allahu Akbar

hhmm, sorry brother, I'm going to have to disagree with you on that one, I don't think that colouring books for adults are bad per se - obviously if you see a grown man with a 'spot the dog' colouring book then alarm bells should be ringing - but there are some quite advanced colouring books out there that require a lot of effort and a little bit of skill, if there are proven benefits for the brain and a person finds it soothing, then I don't see the harm in it.  

But as you say, the educational systems in England and America have gone down the toilet, coupled with whatever they are putting in the water, well it is a recipe for disaster.

A half decent level of reading and counting are skills that people should have.

COAS grants ailing boy wish to become soldier for a day

KARACHI: In a unique gesture, a 17-year-old boy has been granted his wish to become a soldier in the Pakistan Army for a single day by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif, ISPR said.

Shoaib Aurangzeb, a boy who is suffering from Thalassemia, was made a soldier for a day after expressing his desire through a letter to General Raheel Sharif.

The COAS met Shoaib and granted him his wish to become part of the Pakistan Army.
