The present naming of the moon calendar – according to the strongest stance – have been established since the fifth century AD. It is said that the first person to establish it was Ka’ab Ibn Murra, the fifth grandfather in ascending order of prophet Muhammad -may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him-.
There were five months which name were taken from the seasonal condition of that month (month of Rabiul Awwal, Rabiul Akhir, Jumadil Awal, Jumadil Akhir, and Ramadan). Rabiul Awal and Akhir were taken from word “rabi”, which means “sprout”, since it’s establishment coincided the spring time. Jumadil Awal and Akhir were taken from word “jamad”, which means “frozen”, because the time of these months name establishment coincided the winter time, where waters froze. While Ramadan was taken from word “ramdha”, which means “very hot”, due to it’s establishment coincided the summer time.
The other seven months were named according to the condition of the society and social cycle at that time. Muharram, from the word, “haram”, which means “holy”, since this month is one of the four holy months. Safar was taken from the word “sifr”, means “zero” or “void”. It was named so, because in this month many of the houses were empty, being left by it’s dwellers who went to war. Rajab, etymologically means “to glorify”, because the ignorant highly glorified this month, and during this month war was strictly forbidden, thus they dubbed this month by “Rajab Al A’sham” (The silent Rajab).
Sha’ban also was named after that fashion. The word sha’ban was taken from the word “sha’bun”, which means “a group” or “a party”. It was termed Sha’ban since during this month, the ignorant would scattered, forming groups, ready for wars, after they left wars in Rajab. Shawwal was taken from the word “syalat”, which means “to uplift”, because this was the time when the she camel lifted their tails, refused to be married by their males. While Dzulqa’dah was taken from the word “al qa’du”, which means “to sit”. In this month, the ignorant started to stay at their homes and they did not make any war, since this month is the beginning of the three consecutive holy months. While Dzulhijja was taken from the name of their type of worshiping in this month, that is pilgrimage to the house of Allah (Hajj).
Sweeter than a kiss— Tears turning to bliss
It was wintry November day of 1999. All family members were very tense. Every one exchanged looks of doubt and fear with each other. Hearts prayed dearly. Restless I was. No one knew what to do. Sadia my daughter was in labor room from morning. She had lost her twins (healthy sons) just before and after their delivery along with three miscarriages. Every time it was a son. This was fourth time. So all of us were dumbfounded.
Every time the nurses brought a baby out of the labor room, we rushed in hope and fear to see. But hours went by and we waited and waited. My limbs were frozen of nervousness and anxiety. I was worried more about my daughter. The daughter who is very long-suffering, serene and uncomplaining was in a state of uneasiness and anxiety in labor room.
I very ardently prayed that Allah can take my life away but give my daughter a healthy normal baby. Just then a nurse came out of the room driving a baby in a covered trolley. My younger daughter ran following her to the nursery. It was our baby boy J alive, healthy and normal——–God granted our wish, being most kind and beneficent!
My daughter was fine too by the grace of Allah. It was her second operation. now she is mother of one son and one pretty daughter. A complete family ! All praise is to Almighty Allah
When she was shifted to her room we all were smiles and tears at the same time with gratitude and joy.
He’s now 14 years old. Hammad is a very modest well mannered boy. May he live healthy successful life amen

Hair and Skin Health
Cashews are rich in the mineral copper. An essential component of many enzymes, copper plays its part in a broad range of processes. One copper-containing enzyme, tyrosinase, converts tyrosine to melanin, which is the pigment that gives hair and skin its color. Without the copper cashews are so abundant in, these enzymes would not be able to do their jobs.
Cashews are particularly rich in magnesium. It’s a well-known fact that calcium is necessary for strong bones, but magnesium is as well. Most of the magnesium in the human body is in our bones. Copper found in cashews is vital for the function of enzymes involved in combining collagen and elastin, providing substance and flexibility in bones and joints.

There was a proud teak tree in the forest. He was tall and strong. There was a small herb next to the tree.
The teak tree said, “I am very handsome and strong. No one can defeat me”. Hearing this the herb replied, “Dear friend, too much pride is harmful. Even the strong will fall one day”.
The teak ignored the herb’s words. He continued to praise himself.
A strong wind blew. The teak stood firmly. Even when it rained, the teak stood strong by spreading its leaves.
At the same time, the herb bowed low. The teak made fun of the herb.
One day there was a storm in the forest. The herb bowed low. As usual the teak did not want to bow.
The storm kept growing stronger. The teak could no longer bear it. He felt his strength giving way.
He fell down. This was the end of the proud tree. When everything was calm the herb stood straight. He looked around. He saw the proud teak had fallen.
Self praise is no recommendation !
On one dark night he was going with his lighted lamp in his hand. A group of men were passing that way.
They saw the blind man and made fun of him. They said,” O Blind man why do you carry the lighted lamp. You are blind and cannot see anything?
The blind man politely said, “This lamp is not for me, but for you people who have eyes. You may not see a blind man coming and push him. They felt ashamed and begged pardon.
Think twice before you speak.
