Bad mispelling

The holiest city for the Muslims is Makkah-tul-Mukarramah.

It is not "Mecca".

Saudi Arabia had officially changed the spelling of the name of this city to "Makkah" a few years ago after realizing the derogatory usage of the word by the Western media and Western authors.

The word MECCA means "Sharab Khaana/(whisky house)".
So let all of us careful when writing the word "MECCA".

It has been observed that most of us write "MOSQUE" for "Masjid" and even calling it as Mosque in daily routine.
What elders and teachers say that the word "MOSQUE" means
the house of mosquitoes.
So lets be careful, the next time instead of writing mosque, please write MASJID.

Many people, whose names start with MUHAMMAD/Mohamad/Mohammad, write in a short form as "Mohd". This "Mohd" means "A dog which has a big mouth".

The above advice is given by an arab brother, Dr. Mohamad Ismail, staying in Eygpt.

Nasyeed by Micheal Jackson

Gives Thanks to Allah" song by Michael Jackson.

Give thanks to Allah,
For the moon and the stars
Prays in all day full,
What is and what was
Take hold of your iman
Don't give in to shaytan

Oh you who believe please give thanks to Allah.
Allahu ghafur
Allahu rahim
Allahu yuhibbu'l-muhsinin,
Wa -raziqhuna
Wa -huwa `ala kulli sha'in qadir

Allah is Ghafur
Allah is Rahim
Allah is the one who loves the muhsinin,
He is our creator
He is our sustainer
And he is the one who has power over all.
