Human Intellect and Artificial Intelligence

Human intellect has propelled mankind to Earthly domination. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, our intellect has led us, and still leads us, to question, wonder, explore, build, conquer, subdue, respect and hold in awe the existence in which we reside. Human intellect enables Mankind to discover new things about the world around and to create new ways to accomplish what human beings need and want. Out of necessity, human beings have developed languages and symbols; synchronized dates, time and yearly calendar with the movement of earth; built homes, cities and infrastructure; invented locomotives, vessels and crafts to speed up travel on land, sea and space; designed and manufactured machines, home appliances and sophisticated devices to relieve human beings from arduous tasks; enhanced the comfort of mankind and quality of life by harnessing electricity, natural gas, power-energy and managing water, sewage and communication systems; conceived and constructed sophisticated and precise instruments with which mankind is able to study the world, the planets, the moons and asteroids at the level of the atom and its particles and inspect human body to peer deep into tissues and cells to decipher the human genome. Evidently, much of the leaps and bounds in the advancement of human civilisation would not have happened without relying on artificial intelligence: the capability of machines to imitate intelligent human behavior.

Ramadan Program 2019

Movement and Action

Movement is the constituent element of Islamic society, and this is what gives birth to it. Initially, the faith comes from its divine source, conveyed by God's Messenger in word and deed. In later generations, it is represented by advocates of the divine faith. Some people will respond to this advocacy, and they are met with resistance, and subjected to persecution by tyrannical regimes implementing different forms of Jahiliyyah. Some may succumb to persecution and turn away from the faith and its advocating movement, while others remain steadfast. Some of the latter may become martyrs, and others continue the struggle until God has judged between them and their opponents. This latter group will be granted victory by God, who makes them a means of fulfilling His will. He fulfils His promise to them of victory and power, so that they can establish the rule of divine faith. The victory is not theirs as a personal gain or reward. It is a victory of their message, so that they establish God's Lordship of mankind.

High Rise Buildings

In almost all the major cities of the world, residential buildings are characterized with high-rise and high-density of residents. More and more high-rise residential buildings are being introduced to the cities individually or in clusters. Super high-rise projects, as tall as 70 or 80 stories high are being designed and constructed in North America and Asian cities, such as Tokyo, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Limited land areas, geographic and demographic conditions are the major factor behind the mushrooming of high rise buildings. With the increasing trend in rise of urban population, accompanied by growing industrialization and expanding commercial activities in the cities, there will be a greater tendency for people to move where the work is and create new lives there.

Welcome Ramadan

Ramadan is undoubtedly great and blessed, but not everyone who happens to live it is automatically entitled to get the blessings it brings. What is going to be your share from the treasures of Ramadan? Like the fertile soil, you may become soft-hearted and moist-eyed, sow the seed of belief and determination inside yourself, and add to your capabilities. Thus, a seed will grow into a sapling, and a sapling into a tree. The tree will be laden with the fruits of good deeds, and you will reap the fruit — the fruit of eternal bliss. Just like the farmer, as you sow so shall you reap; and the more you toil, the more you shall get. But if you remain hard-hearted, like the farmer who slept when it was time to wake up and work, then the blessings and goodness of Ramadan and Tarawih (night prayers during the holy month) will pass without benefiting you, just like the downpour that does not benefit the rock.
