Article 2:








(Excerpt from the book, " The Prophets of Islam ", by Syed Muhammad Hussain Shamsi, translated into English by late Dr. Haider Hussain Shamsi)


The most widely held belief about the origin of Adam has been that Allah created him from non-existence by His Will using the earth materials.  This did not involve the biological processes of evolution or reproduction.  Allah created Man and Woman from clay in the form and shape, the way they are today.  Any belief or controversy to the contrary is only a speculation.  More..... 






Article 3:






Concentrating on the commonalities between the Abrahamic Faiths
By Moin Ansari
A woman would throw garbage from the rooftop on the Prophet Muhammad every 
day in Mecca. One day when he did not see any garbage, he went looking for her, 
asked about her and found out that she was sick. He prayed for her and gave 
her solace and comfort. He was so impressed, that she converted to Islam.  More.....

The Garden State’s Unsung Hero !

The Story of Transformation of a Community  by Nasir Shamsi

           Mehfle Shahe Khorasan the First Shia Center of the American Shias of Indo-Pakistan origin is 30 years old, this month of August 2005. As one of its first congregants, I am asked to pen down my thoughts about what is now endearingly called Mehfil. I do not know where I had read it. But I agree with the succinct message in this quote: “ The history is to a people what brain is to the individual “. The living communities do record their history. They keep an account of where they came from, what preceded them, what brought them together (and kept them) together their religious heritage, culture, aspirations, folkways and mores their early struggles and any thing and everything that transformed them from a group into a community. For us in these critical times, the study of our early struggles and the role of a small center to help transform scattered groups into community has become all the more significant.

The Far Enemy : Why Jihad Went Global
Fawaz Gerges - (Cambridge Middle East Studies, Cambridge Press)
A Review by Ali Abbas Qureshi
It is a panoramic view of the Jihadist endeavor (different from Islamist, regional 
Islamists and transnationalist jihadsits), particularly in the early 70's through the 
emergence of several Islamist Organizations, in the lands of Islam, from Egypt, 
Algeria, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and culminating with the Russian Invasion 
in Afghanistan. from the treatment of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Tanzim 
(which was then lead by al-Zawahiri), and Tanzims eventually marriage with 
al-Qaeda.    More.....








Article 6:

Reader rebuttal: The truth about Islam

A recent book review by Orange County Register senior editorial writer Steven Green hut praised a book that argues that the minority of Muslim extremists who are involved in terrorism are not a deviation from, but rather a "natural result of following the actual teachings of Muhammad and the Quran" ["Islam, without blinders," Commentary, June 11].

Such a conclusion reflects either a distressing ignorance about Islam or, more worrisome, an unrepentant Islam phobia.   More.....

Article 7:

The label of Catholic terror was never used about the IRA
Fundamentalism is often a form of nationalism in religious disguise
Karen Armstrong  -   Monday July 11, 2005

          Last year I attended a conference in the US about security and intelligence in the so-called war on terror and was astonished to hear one of the more belligerent participants, who as far as I could tell had nothing but contempt for religion, strongly argue that as a purely practical expedient, politicians and the media must stop referring to "Muslim terrorism". It was obvious, he said, that the atrocities had nothing to do with Islam, and to suggest otherwise was not merely inaccurate but dangerously counterproductive. More.....





Article 8:






Paid In Full-A great story !
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through 
school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would 
ask for a meal at the next house. 
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a 
meal he asked for a drink of water.  More.....







Article 9:






The health benefits of peroxide.

      This was written by Becky Ramsey of Indiana and I want to share it with you. Becky writes: "I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little O'L bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. My husband has been in the medicalfield for over 36 years and most doctors don't tell you about peroxide or they would lose thousands of dollars.   More.....




Article 10:




"United we Stand, Divided we Fall"

A Winning Solution for the Iraqi People    

by Dr. Robert D. Crane  

    The Prophet, salla Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam, cautioned us to remember his words:  "It is easy to break a single twig but difficult when it is bundled with others."  The same is true of people.  Divided they are weak and vulnerable; united they are strong and unassailable. This is why the ethnic and religious groups in the Fertile Crescent of the Middle East should respect their differences and unite in a federation or confederation or similar alliance with a common purpose.   More.....





Article 11:






Keep the Kindness Flowing!

      Science now supports the physiological effects of kindness on not only the body and emotions of the receiver but also on the giver as well. Kindness causes us to feel better!
       I often say to my students, "don't wait for science to prove what you already know from personal experience." The validation science offers is wonderful but even without it most people already know that kindness makes the giver and receiver feel better.








Article 12:






Once upon a time, there was an island where all the ‘Feelings’ lived:

 Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love.

One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so they all prepared their boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed.
