Leçon 70: The Record

"We shall surely raise the dead to life and We record what they did and the traces of their deeds that they have left behind. We have encompassed that in a Clear Book." Ya Sin - Chapter 36: Verse 12

One learns from this that the record of one's deeds consists of the following three types of entries:

1. All that one does, good or bad, is recorded.

2. All the impressions that one leaves on the objects around her or on the organs of her own body are recorded. All these will, at a given time, stand out with utter clarity. As a result, it will be possible to hear the words she spoke in the past in her own voice. It will also be possible to observe a person's ideas, intentions and motives in their fullness for all this will appear as though inscribed on her mind's tablet. Thus it will be possible to have a full picture of a person's good and bad deeds, and of all her movements.

3. The full impact of a person on others, both good and evil: the impact on her own future generations, on her society and on mankind at large, will also be entered in this record.

Pourquoi il faut voter?

Par Khalid Elahee - 01/12/2012

Lors d’un sermon, un imam aurait appelé aux musulmans à ne pas accomplir leur devoir civique. Les média n’ont pas manqué de rapporter les propos du chef de l’ex-Hizbullah quant au rôle de la femme en politique. La complexité des enjeux autour des élections, si ce n’est le manque de familiarité avec l’identité les candidats et ce que qu’ils proposent au juste, sont d’autres raisons qui peuvent pousser à l’abstention, si ce n’est à un frustrant désintéressement.

Mais il suffit de voir le prix que sont disposés à payer les Syriens pour le vrai droit de vote pour comprendre que nous n’avons pas le droit de nous abstenir. En Egypte, il a fallu attendre des décennies pour avoir des élections libres. Les réfugiés palestiniens, eux, risquent d’attendre encore longtemps. Ceux de Gaza et de la Cisjordanie se voient refuser le droit à un état, membre des Nations Unis, même s’ils ont des élections. Lorsque le Hamas est élu à Gaza, les mêmes qui défendent la démocratie refusent maintenant le choix des électeurs...

Why I chose Islam by Jemima Goldsmith

When Jemima Goldsmith, the 21-year-old daughter of billionaire Sir James, married Imran Khan she embraced not only the world's most handsome sportsman but also the Muslim faith, taking the name Haiqa. Here, in an exclusive account, she tells how she journeyed from the glamorous society of London to the austere religion of Lahore.

THE media present me as a naive, besotted 21-year-old who has made a hasty decision without really considering the consequences - thus effectively condemning herself to a life of interminable subservience, misery and isolation. Although I must confess I have rather enjoyed the various depictions of a veiled and miserable "Haiqa Khan" incarcerated in chains, the reality is somewhat different. Contrary to current opinion, my decision to convert to Islam was entirely my own choice and in no way hurried. Whilst the act of conversion itself is surprisingly quick - entailing the simple assertion that "there is only one God and Mohammed is His Prophet" - the preparation is not necessarily so speedy a process. In my case, this began last July, whilst the actual conversion took place in early February - three months before the Nikkah in Paris.

The Market Evolution for Conventional Apparel, Traditional Dress and Technical Clothing

by Assad Bhuglah

Clothing industry exists since time immemorial and will stay for ever. Anyone willing to progress in clothing business must not only adapt to the tastes and fashions, but must also evolve with technology and respond to the needs of time.

The clothing sector can be classified in three broad categories: conventional apparel, traditional dress and technical clothing. By and large, the clothing industry is dominated by the production and marketing of conventional apparels and the opportunities in other types of dresses are yet to be tapped.
