شمولية الذكر في الأذان والصلاة ..

* في الأذان --> الله أكبر، أشهد ألا إله إلا الله، أشهد أن محمدّا رسول الله، لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله (تـُقال عند حي على الصلاة وحي على الفلاح)
* في الصلاة --> الحمد لله (في الفاتحة) وسبحان ربي العظيم في الركوع و سبحان ربي الأعلى في السجود.

فنجد أننا:
 نذكر الله في كل ترديد مع الأذان، ونكبر الله في حركات الصلاة، ونحمد الله ونحن واقفون (في الفاتحة والقيام من الركوع - سمع الله لمن حمده، ربنا ولك الحمد) ونسبح ربنا ونحن إما راكعون أو ساجدون

فإن كان التكبير ونحن نتحرك،  والحمد ونحن واقفون، والتسبيح ونحن إما راكعون أو ساجدون، والذكر لله ولربنا، أفلا نتفكر؟

Again, another mile, another story finished. Honestly, after "All we leave behind", one feeling is ruling me above all. I gotta change my life and accept some stuff within, then I could make room for another book, and make time for seeking real joys.

Any how, I am writing to post a screen shot from French Open results. If any body knows me well here, they would wonder why I am writing "French Open" instead of "Roland Garros". May be because the French language is so delicate and feminine in pronunciation that many people love it. May be because the French perfumes are the best. May be both reasons, but for some reason I want to convey supremacy of the Grand Slam. I have always argued with many people that Roland Garros is far better than Wimbledon but I then figured out that it feels like comparing apples to oranges, totally different.

Here is the pic, I wish Gulbis this time have the guts to give Nadal / Djokovic a hard unforgettable time :D

So I finished reading Inamorata and

I had a few days to break. I spent most of them usually working and in my spare time watching TED Talks. I have developed this syndrome of heavily watching TED after something big has happened. Finishing Inamorata was sort of big to me. Not in the sense of accomplishment, I have finished larger and more difficult books earlier, but in the sense of having peace with the feelings and the thoughts that poured upon me from the story. It's overwhelming with too many things to contemplate and re-calculate in a good sense. Many lessons to grasp and hold on to. It was also difficult to settle with the idea that one can easily find another book of at least the same quality writing-style and higher value thoughts to drive home. Then all of a sudden, after a few days, I started another Wattpad book. It is called "All we leave behind". After catching myself unable to put down the tablet expect when extremely tired, I figured out a common factor between the two books - although the …

Those dark days of the Internet are coming...

-- Please accept my apologies being written on a Google service, you know Google's uptime is sexy --

So, Oracle makes most of the databases empowering telecom giants, and telecom giants offer mobile services to end users and end users are usually addicted to their smart phones that usually have What's app, Facebook and many Google products.

Now that Facebook has bought What's app, I can rest back and safely announce that the war has officially moved from desk / lap tops to mobile devices.

The internet will ruin itself and everything around...

Inamorata

Honestly, I have never reviewed a book before finishing it, but this time there is something inside me pushing me to review the book even when I am just at chapter 13 out of 41.

Talent when combined with smart and hard work along with love for what one is doing usually produces a masterpiece, something the majority approves of and likes.

On Wattpad, you can find Inamorata; an amazing story by Irish Rose. A story about humanity, morals, feelings, thoughts, and love. Unlike the trend of writing about a love story, Irish Rose wrote about a human in love with everything. You the reader, I bet, can't help except to fall in love with her.

The courage that Irish Rose had to write such that she makes you sometimes despise the heroine and at some other times be happy for her is really overwhelmingly beautiful. I can not imagine how hard it was for Irish Rose to write this down, but I believe the book heavily draws from real-world experiences and carefully crafts contradictions.

The true and ugly side of the American Legal System

I subscribed to Constitutional Struggles in Coursera, and the below is an email from our professor showing the true and ugly side of the American Legal System:


Dear All,




I write this email under protest and with a considerable degree of anger and sadness. Few things illustrate the bone-headedness, short-sightedness, and sheer chauvinism of the political structure of the United States better than the extent to which its ideologues are willing to go to score cheap domestic political points with narrow interests in the pursuit of a sanctions regime that has clearly run its course.




You might remember the Apple ad from a few years back, in which the company proudly announced that their machines were now so powerful that they fell under export restrictions: "For the first time in history a personal computer has been classified as a weapon by the US government ..."
