Article 3:  THE LIFE OF IMAM HUSAIN IBNE ALI (a)   (Excerpt from Dr. Haider Hussain Shamsi's book: " And The Message Continues: The Lives of The Imams of The Ahlul Bait".)

DURING THE TIMES OF THE PROPHET:  The birth of second grandchild made the Prophet very happy. He came to the house of Imam All and his beloved daughter Fatima and named the newborn Husain.














Statistics tell us that something has gone wrong in our world. A steadily rising rate of social ills, and the proliferation of self-help books and therapy techniques for "reprinting the inner child" attest to the sad fact that we have lost our way in raising our children. It is up to us as parents - despite our personal limitations - to give our children the right start in life: to help them become fulfilled, emotionally healthy adults, capable of loving and trusting others. Philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote that "the entire ocean is affected by a pebble." Our children should be like pebbles bringing forth waves of joy, not more sorrow and suffering.       More.....

Article 6:    My Glorious Brothers

by Daphna Baram  
--exerpt from Ronit Chacham, Breaking Ranks: Refusing to Serve in the West 
Bank and Gaza Strip (Other Press, LLC, )9 Jul. 2003
The late Jewish philosopher (he lived more than half his life in Jerusalem
and was among the founders of its Hebrew university, but it is still
somehow hard to relate to him as an Israeli philosopher), Yesha’ayahu
Leibowitz, had only contempt for physical courage. He used to remind his
audiences of brave and daring acts by Nazi special units soldiers during
the WW II. "They were extraordinarily fearless, they risked their own
lives in service of their leader," he shouted at the top of his unique
prophet’s voice. "Do we think of them as heroes? No, we do not." The real
heroes, according to Leibowitz, are those who speak their minds without
fear of scorn, contempt and ostracism; those who do the unpopular thing
and follow their conscious, willing to bear the consequences for their
beliefs.   More..... 



Article 7:  Islam Beyond the Five Pillars  By: Charles Le Gai Eaton





Those who enquire about the basics of Islam are usually told about the "Five Pillars" of the religion. These relate to faith and to practice, but at a deeper level it might be said that there are two great pillars which support the whole edifice. These are Peace and Justice. They are clearly connected since there can be no enduring peace without justice. The very word Islam comes from the same verbal root as salam meaning "peace" and, since the religion is based upon total submission to the will of God,   More.....

Article 9:  Mirror does not lie !

(An excerpt from an English translation “ Maqalat-i Shams Tabriz “, under publication.)

 If you renounce the body and attain the soul, you have (still) attained a transient (state). God is eternal. How can the transient discover the eternal? What is the dust to do with the Lord of Lords? The soul is all you have by which you may escape and be saved. What then will have you done if you offer up your soul? Verse: More.....







How do children develop?

To encourage children’s best development, we need to understand the various ways they grow.

  • Children's physical development includes learning large muscle skills like jumping and running, and small muscle skills like cutting and pasting.
  • Intellectual development involves children's increasing ability to think and solve problems.
  • Emotional development is about learning to experience, identify, express and control feelings.
  • Social development means learning how to relate to others.

                   I am the slave of that perfect Moon!
                   Don't talk to me of suffering, I don't want to hear.
                  Talk about light, joy and sweetness and if you can't, keep silent!     More.....
