(bismillah) (salam)

With due respect sister, i think the title of your post is misleading, why do i say so............ we always argue with the Sunni brothers that Prophet(saaw) used to pray on mud, since in those days , there was no rug/ carpet in his house, therefore we justify use of turba, and which is a correct justification, PROPHETS CARPET seems misleading, but its my personal opinion, no offence meant sister.

Wasallam

Salam

I have a strange problem. When I try to open www.hotmail.com, the browser instead open a website named www.bing.com. It looks like this website is some sort of a search engine produced by MSN (a new form of Windows live). I cannot open my hotmail account through bing.com. I have tried other sites like mail.live.come etc, but all these are redirected to www.bing.com. I have already tried different browsers and even different computers but hotmail does not appear.

What is bing.com? Why is my hotmail blocked? Can anyone answer? Thanks. Is anyone else facing the same problem?

Bhuj: This is a story of love and quirks of fate which could possibly make the cut for a Bollywood potboiler. Way back in 1976, this Bangladeshi national visited Iran illegally via India and Pakistan and found his lady love there.

In 2007, he temporarily returned to Bangladesh, keen to dispose of his property there, and then settle in Iran for good. But the heavens seem to have willed otherwise. Much as he would like to be reunited with his Iranian wife, he is currently cooling his heels in an Indian jail.

Meet Mohammed Tahir Zulfikar Haji Mohammed Sheikh, who is serving a two-year jail sentence pronounced by additional district session judge, AM Bhimani, on Wednesday last for overstaying in India after coming to this country on Indian visa in January last year. Policemen and prosecution lawyer sympathise with him, but that can be of little solace to him.

Circa 1976. Tahir came to India illegally and then crossed over to Pakistan through land route. From there, he went to Iran. He fell in love with an Iranian girl there and married her. Decades later, in 2007, he returned to Bangladesh to dispose of his property and then return to Iran. But as bad luck could have it, he lost his Iranian passport, making it difficult for him to return.

This made Tahir decide to try the 'old route' to return to Iran. He came to India on a Bangladeshi passport with an Indian visa, which was valid for one month from January 28, 2008 to February 27, 2008. But he failed to sneak into Pakistan from Jammu and Kashmir border this time. Then, he came to Kutch and stayed at Hajipir.

When he went to Narayan Sarovar, he was caught by police on April 16, 2008. He was booked for overstaying in India and moving in a notified area of the border district and sentenced recently under the Foreigners' Act, 1921.

Ghanshyam Gor, additional public prosecutor, told this reporter, "I fought the police case against him, but I have sympathy for him, like everyone in the police and the administration, for his tragic life and his desperate efforts to meet his Iranian wife."

He said the man was found to be truthful and co-operative in police investigation. His first statement made to police tallied with his revelations. Gor said Tahir's two-year jail term would be over on April 16, 2010 and he would then be deported to Bangladesh as his Bangladeshi passport was found to be in his possession at the time of arrest. "We do not know how he would be able to return to Iran to meet his wife, Amal Wahdi Lamie."

is a bengali marrying an irani that much of a news story?

i dont think its that big of a deal but i do know of some people who make it a really strict, kind of obligation to get their family members only married to the people of their same race. Which, if you ask me is a shame. dont you think?? i mean sure it is a big help where language and customs and such-like are concerned but honestly some people are too "over-the-top" when it comes to marriage. they start to think more about themselves rather than the actual people getting married

what is interesting about how he got arrested? what was he doing overstaying in india? (the article is poorly written) i dont really find the story romantic or relatively particuarly sad. i know of an iranian father who hasnt seen his two daughters in years because the american govt wont let him into the US (where his now grown children are) even as a tourist. and he didnt enter any country illegally or commit any illegal act. these sorts of stories are numerous. i think the news article over dramatises his story and comparing it to those of bollywood even gives it a touch of dark humour. from the article alone, i dont really see how his life has been particularly tragic.

his wife's doesnt have a typically sounding iranian name either.

sounds like cheap journalism to me.

i really find the article annoying. the title calls him "cupid struck" which is idiotic. The man appears to have been married for almost 30 years before he was separated from his wife. To call it "cupid struck" is cheapening his supposed bond with his wife of more than 20 years. makes you think hes some 20 yo who has stars in his eyes and throbbing with hormones to get back to his young wife, which the story is nothing of the sort. by all indication he was living in iran for a few decades, and would i imagine want to return to his life there and i would presume children too. its not a stupid love story.

I think its perfectly rational for a south asian to be cupid struck. First its inherent in their culture what with all the bollywood and stuff. Then we have no idea what grief he might have endured for 30 years.

Its a beautiful story and it happened in my ancestoral home. Awwwwwww :wub:

Please can someone let me know where I can buy an 'Ali' pendant, in Arabic calligraphy, similar to the Allah pendants that are worn so commonly.

I've seen a few Iranians wear this pendant so I went to Iranian places in London, however I could not find it!

Do you have any recommended books of 'Ifran for beginner?

Accompany my zeal on the path, O Ta'ir al-Quds,

The path to the goal is long, and I new to the journey.

Leave not this stage without the company of Khidr,

There is darkness ahead; be afraid of losing the way.
