If Muhammad (PBUH) was alive

Posted on


If our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was alive today, what do you think he would be busy with? Would he (PBUH) be busy with celebrating his birthday? Would he (PBUH) be busy building schools? Would he (PBUH) be busy running for elections in a non-Islamic system? Would he (PBUH) be busy with building schools? Would he (PBUH) be busy with creating charities? Would he (PBUH) be busy with fighting waging Jihad on the world? Would he (PBUH) be regarded as a Saudi citizen? Would he (PBUH) give himself a Nationality and if so which nationality will he have? Would he lock himself in the Masjid? I could go on, so if Muhammad was alive today what would he busy himself with?

Self interest is a beach

Posted on


The United States and other Capitalist nations have a policy of self-interest but are sugar coated with sweet words to appease the public opinion.

With regards to Egypt, the United States has been pouring $1.5 billion each year for military aid and similar amount for economic aid. That amounts to almost $60 billion over the past 3 decades. The United States has been fully aware of imprisonment and torture of all political, religious voices in Egypt and the corruption at a systemic level. She supported Mubarak till his last days, she then supported the SCAF, and then Morsi and his Islamist government. Now it is the turn of Sisi and the old regime with a new face to receive support from the States.

The US has now agreed to continue to release the military aid to Egypt which was frozen over the past years or so due to the uncertainty. In other words the US will be paying the Egyptians to ensure their interests will be fulfilled in the region and Egypt can continue to be its lacky.

Although strict conditions have been put in place that go with the aid, however ‘The conditions include free and fair elections and the right to free assembly. However, Congress also passed a waiver that allows the secretary of state to sidestep the conditions if necessary for national security.’

Being productive

Posted on


We try to squeeze as many hours in one work day, to be “productive”, but in the end everything depends less on time, and more on your focus, motivation and overall well-being.

Some key findings:

– Decide what’s important because in 5 years, 80% of what you do today will not turn into anything. It’s just busywork, no useful outcome.
– Sleep, food and exercise can help you triple your outcome, because they increase focus, motivation and energy levels.
– The 2-minute rule: if you can do something (like replying to an email, or a house chore) in 2 minutes, do it now. Planning it for later, remembering it, doing it in the future will take 5 minutes or more.
– The 5-minute rule: the biggest cure against procrastination is to set your goal not to finish a scary big hairy task, but to just work 5 minutes on it. You’ll find out that most times it continues well beyond the 5 minutes, as you enter a flow state.
– Seinfeld’s productivity chain: if you want to be good at something, do it every day.

Srebrenica massacre 110795

Posted on


The Srebrenica massacre, also known as the Srebrenica genocide, refers to the July 1995 killing, during the Bosnian War, of more than 8,000[1] Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims), mainly men and boys, in and around the town of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina, by units of the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) under the command of General Ratko Mladić. The mass murder was described by the Secretary-General of the United Nations as the worst crime on European soil since the Second World War.

Theodor Meron, the presiding judge of the Appeals Chamber, stated:

By seeking to eliminate a part of the Bosnian Muslims, the Bosnian Serb forces committed genocide. They targeted for extinction the 40,000 Bosnian Muslims living in Srebrenica, a group which was emblematic of the Bosnian Muslims in general. They stripped all the male Muslim prisoners, military and civilian, elderly and young, of their personal belongings and identification, and deliberately and methodically killed them solely on the basis of their identity.

In February 2007 the International Court of Justice (ICJ) concurred with the ICTY judgement, stating:

The Court concludes that the acts committed at Srebrenica falling within Article II (a) and (b) of the Convention were committed with the specific intent to destroy in part the group of the Muslims of Bosnia and Herzegovina as such; and accordingly that these were acts of genocide, committed by members of the VRS in and around Srebrenica from about 13 July 1995.
