TEHRAN (AFP) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s 1977 Peugeot 504 has received a one million dollar bid after the car was put on an international auction Saturday, state media reported.

Iran’s official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmad Esfandiari, the head of Iran’s Welfare Organisation, as saying the bid had come from an Arab country. He did not offer details.

Ahmadinejad on Saturday launched a website ( to invite international bids for his car, with the proceeds to fund a project to build 60,000 homes for the disabled and to needy women who are providing for their families.

The website will accept bids for a period of one month, the report said.

Ahmadinejad has always cultivated an image as a “people’s president” and friend of the poor.

After his election to his first term as president in 2005, he was required by law to make an asset declaration and he listed a then 40-year-old 175-square-metre (1,900-square-foot) house in a lower-middle class part of east Tehran, the contents of two bank accounts and the ageing white Peugeot.

Following his controversial re-election last year, he vowed to put “housing, employment and economic reform” at the top of his agenda after house prices soared during his first term of office.

When the French Republic passed a draft law that “no one can, in the public space, wear clothing intended to hide the face”, critics began their flow of motions while supporters reason the thoughts of laying down their tolerance. Two weeks after the alarm in this Muslim minority republic assembly, followed by chains of reactions and opinions; somewhere else in an Islamic university of eastern India, students demand female lecturer to wear burqas.

The Aliah University Calcutta campus located in West Bengal, with nearly a forth of population in the state are Muslims, burqas are a common sight. While lawmakers in the west push the fight against burqa, the garment is unlikely to cause a stir in any Muslim state. Of course, France is only an opposite of India’s West Bengal with a Muslim population that sums up to 5 million of its 62 million citizens. Nevertheless, of France estimated 5 million Muslims, only a tiny minority around 2,000 wear full Islamic veil attire.
Democracy strives in an open stage. Stigmatizing may be known as better off for the majority in any both situation of Muslim minority or majority but the value of freedom, equality, and justice transcends every community. The victory in France will initiate similar legislation in other Western countries but Muslim nations will not remain in their silence.

In the impulse of arguments and complexity, the deep and somewhat ambiguous issue of burqa makes it easy to wonder whether the issue is only a buzzword that affects big players and extreme corners of our world. When in Rome, do what the Romans do.

One of the most intriguing and touching stories of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, is the story of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Mary is a highly revered figure in the Qur’an, not just because she was the mother of Jesus, but also on her own right as a woman of great devotion.

She is auspiciously referred to as chosen, purified and truthful. Mary is depicted in terms that transcend the confines of natural law and as a manifestation of God’s blissful grace. Her story is vividly told in two chapters of the Qur’an; first chapter named after her family (Family of Imran) and the second named after Mary herself.

Her story begins with her mother, “the wife of Imran,” who made a vow after her pregnancy: “My Lord! I have dedicated what is growing in my womb entirely to you; so accept this from me: You are the One who hears and knows all.” To her surprise however, she gave birth to a girl whom she felt might not be suitable for the vow she made. Nevertheless, her vow was accepted; the Qur’an notes: “Her Lord graciously accepted her and made her grow in goodness.”

Mary came under the guardianship of an esteemed man, Zachariah. Her life from the outset was unique. Zachariah noticed first-hand the grace surrounding Mary, when he found that she was always fully provided for and was in no need of his provisions. Zachariah intriguingly inquired: “O Mary! How is it that you have these provisions?” She said: “They are from God. God provides limitlessly for whomever He will.” This experience was an eye-opener for Zachariah, who was old and barren. He was prompted to raise his hand and supplicate to his lord: “O my Lord! From your grace grant me virtuous offspring: You hear every prayer!” His prayer was answered with the glad tiding of a son named John (Yahya).

Mary’s pure upbringing and devotion set the stage for her to be manifest of a mighty miracle. Early in her life she was divinely told: “Mary! God has chosen you and made you pure: He has truly chosen you above all women.”

She was instructed: “Mary! Be devout to your Lord, prostrate yourself in worship, bow down with those who pray.” The most compelling news came to Mary when the angels called upon her in a serene moment: “Mary! God gives you news of a Word from Him, whose name will the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, who will be held in honour in this world and the next, who will be one of those brought near to God.” To this, Mary responded intuitively, “My Lord, How can I have a son when no man has touched me?” The response came instantly: “This is how God creates what He will: when He has ordained something, He only says ‘Be’ and it is!”

The Qur’an gives a vivid description of Mary’s lonely moments, once she became pregnant; “She withdrew to a distant place and, when the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree, she exclaimed, “I wish I had been dead and forgotten long before all this!” At this difficult moment, she heard a comforting voice calling from beneath: “Don’t worry, your Lord has provided a stream at your feet and, if you shake the trunk of the palm tree towards you, it will deliver fresh ripe dates for you, so eat, drink and be glad.”

After the birth of Jesus, Mary had to go through the agony of explaining to her people the newborn baby. The Qur’an says: She went back to her people carrying the child, and they said, “Mary! You have done something terrible! Sister of Aaron! Your father was not an evil man; your mother was not unchaste!” She pointed at the baby. They said, “How can we converse with an infant?” But this infant wasn’t an ordinary infant, he spoke assertively and said: “I am a servant of God. He has granted me the scripture; made me a Prophet; made me blessed wherever I may be. He commanded me to pray, to give alms as long as I live, to cherish my mother. He didn’t make me domineering or graceless. Peace was on me the day I was born, and will be on me the day I die and the day I am raised to life again.”

Mary’s fortitude, virtue and devotion are inspiringly told and her name echoed throughout the chapters of the Qur’an. She is set forth, along with the wife of Pharaoh (who defied her husband’s wrongdoing), as a model of righteousness for all believers. The story of Mary dispels the medieval notion of associating women with vice and low life and asserts that women can ascend to the ranks of the most spiritually noble and devout. Inspired by the Qur’anic reverence of Mary, Muslims hold her in the highest esteem and view her as an embodiment of spiritual and moral excellence. Her name Mary (Maryam) is one of the most commonly used female names among Muslim women.

Science may tell a different story about the evolution of the Islam but the reality is that Allah, the almighty has create this universe. The way this universe has been created, none other than Allah can do this.

Islam = submission to the Will of Allah (GOD).

Islam has beginning and end. Those who embrace Islam are called Muslims. The word Muslim is derived from the word Peace. The traditional muslim greeting is peace be unto you.

Who is Allah? Allah is The One and The Only God who created the worlds, Angels (created by light), Jinn (created by Fire), Satan (devil) is an outcast Jinn, man (created from sounding clay), animals and contents of the universes. Allah is One, there is no God other than Him, without any partners, He is eternal without a beginning and enduring without end, Absolute, Self-Sufficient, Self-Existing, never dies, not borne nor gives birth, has no companion and nothing is comparable to Him. He never sleeps nor slumbers. All-Knowing, All-Hearing, All-Seeing. Nothing happens except what He wills. He gives life and death. He is The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful. He is intensively and continuously merciful to his creatures even though Non Muslims do not believe in him. He is far above from any created being. He is The Creator of everything in the universe, heaven and earth and its content. He will never perish or come to an end. When Allah wants anything to happen he says “Be” and it is. Muslims do not believe that Allah assumed Human form and came down to this earth. Human body form has animal properties and animal characteristics are created by Allah. Allah is high above all the creations.

Creation of Mankind

The first Man’s (Adam ) body was created from sounding clay. His companion woman “Hava ” was created from Adam’s rib. All his descendant’s bodies are created by sperm of man and ovum of women. Jesus (Prophet ISA) son of Mariam (Mary) was created by Allah’s word (Be and it is) like Adam but in Mariam’s womb. Jesus was a human prophet and not son of God. He was not crucified but taken up alive (Holy Quran).

Allah breathed into the body of man part of His spirit called (Ruh) Soul . When the soul enters the body it becomes alive. When this soul is withdrawn from the body it dies and the body decays, putrefies and is eaten by microorganisms. Every day man experience temporary death at night when he sleeps and resurrects when he wakes up. Allah keeps his soul in a safe place during his sleep. Allah has appointed angels as guardians to the right and left side and allowed satan to disturb humans. All these facts are described in Holy Quran.

Stage 1. Life in Lau Ho Mahfuz.

Allah created all the souls of the descendants of Adam and Hava who were predestined to come to this earth. Everything about the universes and our soul before and after creations are documented and recorded in the tablet (book) board in heaven(Lau Ho Mahfuz).

Allah once asked all the created souls, “who is your Lord?”. All the souls said “You are our Creator our Lord”. But souls forget the covenant when they descend to the earth. Some have faint or vague memory of Allah (God) in the inner core of the heart. At times of life threatening danger man will automatically shout “Oh God !”. But who is that God? If no one tells him he will not know. At that time they usually do not address false gods. They usually point up to the heaven and say Almighty God meaning ALLAH.. If they say that many times they will forget false gods. That is the inner instinct of Humans.

Stage 2. Life in the mother’s womb.

The soul is sent down to this earth into the body of fetus developed in the mother’s womb and the fetus becomes alive. The fetus was swimming in the amniotic fluid inside the uterus like a fish. It does not breathe air. The fetus was fed by the blood through the placenta of the mother and supplied to the body of the fetus by means of umbilical cord. In pregnant women there is no menstruation until the baby is born. Do we remember how we lived 9 months inside the mother’s womb?

Stage 3. Life in this world.

At the fetal age of 36 to 40 weeks (pregnancy) the baby is born. The baby breaths the first time and cries. Whereas the nurses, friends, parents and relatives laugh, are happy and praise the baby. When the same baby become old and dies, the relatives and friends cry. Some practice infanticide (kill babies) if the baby is female. Islam does not allow infanticide and abortion. The newly born baby is clean, innocent , free from sins, grows, develops , learns and is brought up in muslim families or in non-muslim families. The soul in the baby forgot Allah and the promise (covenant) given in the heaven that Allah is his Creator and Lord.

The babies brought up in muslim families will be taught Quran and reminded about Allah and Islam to worship only The One Allah. To avoid worshipping false gods. False gods are either made by man from wood or stone or the creation of Allah (such as sun , moon, tree, fire, water, animals , spirits, the content of the universe). Muslims only worship one creator (Allah) but not the creations. Muslims do not associate anything with Allah. Allah has sent 124,000 Prophets from the time of Adam to the time of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), the last Prophet, to remind all mankind to worship one God Allah. There were divine revelations (books) sent down through Prophets including Abraham, David , Solomon, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (Pbuh).

Muslims believe all the Prophets and their books (psalms, Torah, Bible and Quran). Quran is the latest divine revelation (words of Allah) revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) 1400 years ago and is preserved without any flaws and amendments done by humans up to date. Whereas all the other Holy books were altered or corrected by humans and the original statements were corrupted and become doubtful. Allah said in Quran he will preserve the Holy Quran until the end of the world so no man can alter it. Quran is preserved in the hearts of Hafizs (Those who have memorized the whole book Holy Quran by heart). There are millions of Hafizs in this world. Burning all the copies of Quran will not make miraculous Quran disappear from this world. Quran is revealed in Arabic language whereas the Bible was revealed in Hebrew language. Quran updates all the previous holy books and teaches mankind about universal laws, moral concepts and narratives. The Quran’s timeless text remains a miracle, an inspiration and guide to all humanity.

Muslims believe in Quran and follow Prophet’s saying and example of his way of life. Those who believe in one Allah, his prophets, his books, his angels, the last day of judgment, the next life, good or bad come from predestined decree of Allah, the existence of hell and heaven, reward for good people and punishment of bad people are called Muslims. All souls are provided with limited free will to choose. There is no compulsion in Islam. All souls have to taste death. When the soul leaves the body, relatives and friends cry. The soul of man will be extracted by the angel of death either gently or roughly when the time is ripe. When a soul is pulled out from the body man must remember his faith in Allah (that Allah is his Creator) otherwise he will be sent to hell.

Satan, the devil is proud and cast out by Allah because he is jealous of Adam, disobeyed Allah, and became avowed enemy of Mankind. He has the power to disturb man from the front, behind, by the sides and can enter the body, whisper evil in Man’s heart as approved by Allah. Satan, the devil’s job is to mislead man to hell. It is easy for Satan to mislead non-muslims to worship other than Allah but not true Muslims. Satan will destroy Muslims by using many tactics but especially by 1. Jealousy and 2. Greediness . Satan was punished because of jealousy and Adam was punished because of greed. Satan certainly will try to persuade muslims at the time of death when a person is in semi conscious state to say that there are other gods than Allah. If Satan succeeds the soul of Muslim or non Muslim will go out from the body at the time of death without faith and that soul will enter hell.

Muslims therefore practice and profess “there is no God except Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” (in Arabic “La ilaaha illallah Muhammadur Rasullulah“) it must be said by mouth and believed in the heart all the time and practiced all the time to make it habitual during sleep or while awake or in shock or distress. Allah has provided a way for mankind to drive away Satan by uttering the divine revelation ‘A-’oo thu bil-laa-hi mi-nash-shai-¬taa-nir ra-jeem. Bis-mil-laa-hir- Rah-maa-nir Ra-heem.” meaning “I seek refuge in Allah from Satan the outcast, In the name of Allah , The Most Gracious , The Most Merciful”. Whenever a Muslim starts to do anything e.g. eat, drink, sleep, travel, switch on the computer, open the book to read or write, enter bath room , twilight , travel, enter into vehicle, sleep with his wife, gets up from sleep, he recites this verse to drive away Satan.

Muslims always say in good or bad status Alhamdulillah (All praises and thank be to Allah), that is submission to the Will of Allah. Muslims will say to Allah “Thee do we worship and Thine aid we seek. Please show us the right way.” Muslims must understand that we are tourists travelling and not permanent in this world. We must love Allah more than our life. Family and other worldly things come next. Allah says in Holy Quran “Man and Jinn are created for nothing except to worship (serve) Allah”. So our first priority is to serve Him and to please Him with good intention. Allah will not accept the worship or service if performed without good intention e.g. To Pay charity or pray to show off will not be accepted. Intention of doing any good must be to please Allah. Muslims are Vicegerent (representatives) of Allah. Muslims always say Insha Allah (God willing) before they plan to do things. Masha Allah (will of God) to appreciate things.

In order to die as a Muslim with faith one must also practice virtues of Islam (good practice) such as the 5 pillars of Islam.

1. Faith (“Laa ilaha illallah Muhamadur Rasullulah“) “there is no God except Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”, it must be believed in the heart and said by mouth repeatedly to become habitual and to not forget at the time of accident or sleep or distress or death. This is the most important faith. This is the visa to enter paradise. Without faith one may not enter paradise. The biggest tug of war inside our soul is faith. A muslim will not bow his head to anything living or non living to worship except Allah.

2. Pray five times a day (dawn, afternoon, evening, sunset and night).

3. Pay Zakat (poor man’s money Alms)

4. Fasting one month in Ramadan

5. Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) once in a life time.

The first two are compulsory and a must for all muslims. The other three depends upon one’s health and wealth. The above practice with good intention will make a muslim the best person on the earth and remember Allah at the time of death. At the time of death if a muslim or a non-muslim remembers Allah and utters “La ilaaha illallah Muhamadur Rasullulah” (“there is no God except Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”), he will be taken to paradise and otherwise to hell. So non-muslims may remember The Creator just before death and enter paradise because Allah has kept open His door of forgiveness and mercy until before his death. A Muslim cannot point at the non-muslims and say he is going to hell because he himself is not sure about hell or paradise.

Therefore this stage 3 is very important testing ground for human being. It is the duty of muslims to remind each other and his non-muslim friends about Allah, death, the next life (resurrection), reward and punishment, hell and paradise. Muslims are like living in jail in this temporary world. Muslims must obey the laws stated in Quran, avoid adultery, alcohol, gambling, cheating, observe Halal (lawful) and Haram (unlawful) food and Halal and Haram money and usury, etc. Muslims must undergo many tests and practice Islam. Muslims must be patient constantly, must bear and accept that good and bad are preordained and decreed by Allah and say Alhamdullilah (All praise and thank be to Allah) all the time in order to enjoy reward in the Hereafter, which is everlasting. Muslims must work hard in this third stage temporary world with fear, repentance , ask forgiveness for wrong doing mistakes with hope and mercy from God to prevent from hell fire and enjoy reward in the next life. Muslims will say “Our prayers, our good deeds, our life and death are for Allah our Lord, Creator of the Worlds.” Allah created evil but He does not like it. Allah created good and He likes it. He encourages us and guides us to do good. He will guide and protect the obedient servants. But those who refuse to accept Allah’s revelation sent to prophets, and follow Satan, Allah will not guide them any more. They will go astray. Allah will forgive all kinds of sins except Polytheism.

Stage 4. Death.

After the soul is drawn from the body Allah keeps it in a place called Alam Barzaak. Good people’s soul are kept in a good place and bad people’s soul in a bad place until Kiyamat (Judgment day) arrives, when everything is destroyed except Allah. There will be resurrection of all Mankind

Stage 5. Resurrection on the Judgment day.

All souls will get up from the graves. Obedient souls will go to paradise for ever. Disobedient souls will go to hell for punishment. Those who ignore or reject or refuse to believe Allah and who worshipped false gods rather than Allah, The Creator , in this world , will go to Hell forever in the next world. Muslims do not believe in Incarnation (reborn again) to this world.

Stage 6. The end stage for disobedient soul is to enter Hell fire.

Stage 7. The end stage for obedient soul is peaceful to enter paradise in the form of new creation with different forms. Allah said that it is easy for Him to do so (Holy Quran). In paradise they will be free from sickness, illness and will at all times be healthy, clean, peaceful and satisfied with provisions, with beautiful young companions and of no ageing, to dwell in forever. This is because Allah is satisfied with the soul who is obedient to His Divine laws and the soul is also satisfied with Allah.

Mishwak in the light of Hadith and Quoran.

There is no dearth of religion in the world. Almost all religions of the world teach good values. Then question arises what is the difference between Islam and other religions? The answer is simple but very strong. While all other religions of the world teach about the problems and consequences, Islam apart from telling about the problem and consequences, it also shows the remedy. Allah in his noble Quran has provided the man how to spend life. And by Allah, if any one walks on the path of Quran and the life of his beloved massager, one can never fail in the life.
Mishwak is one of the Sunnah which is very useful for one’s life.

What is Miswak ?

Miswak is a method of cleaning the mouth which also earns the pleasure of Allaah, as is proven in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Siwaak cleanses the mouth and pleases the Lord.’” (Reported by [??] al-Bukhaari in his Saheeh, 2/274, and by [??] Ahmad, 6/47, and al-Nisaa’i, 1/50. Its isnaad is saheeh, see al-Irwa’ 1/105).
Use of the siwaak is repeatedly encouraged, as in the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him), who reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Were it not for the fact that I did not want to make things too hard for my ummah, I would have commanded them to use the siwaak at every time of prayer.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/299 and Muslim, 1/151). According to another report narrated by al-Bukhaari, he said: “…at every time of making wudoo’.”
When getting up from sleep. Hudhayfah ibn al-Yamaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) got up during the night, he would clean his mouth thoroughly with the siwaak. (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 1/98 and Muslim, 1/220)

If araak twigs are not available, the scholars recommended using palm-leaf stalks, or twigs of the olive tree. The ahaadeeth that have been narrated concerning this, however, are not saheeh.
The correct view is that any kind of sticks that are cleansing and not harmful may be used instead of siwaak, if it is not available, to clean the mouth and remove dirt from the teeth. This includes modern toothbrushes which are known to be beneficial in this regard.

The scholars are agreed that the best thing for cleaning the mouth is the twigs of the araak tree, because of its good smell, and because it has brush-like fibres which are effective for cleaning food particles etc. from between the teeth, and because of the hadeeth of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “I used to gather siwaak sticks from the araak tree for the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).” (Reported by Ahmad, 3991; its isnaad is hasan, see al-Irwa’ 1/104).

It is mentioned in one tradition that there are 3 types
1) The Peeloo Tree Miswaak
2) Oive Tree Miswaak
3) The Terebinth tree Miswaak

Hadhrat Ibn Abbas Radhiallahu Anhu reports that there are virtues of the miswaak.

1) It removes the yellowness of the teeth .
2) It strengthens the eyesight .
3) It strengthens the gums.
4) It cleans the Mouth .
5) It removes Phlegm .
6) The angles become pleased.
7) The Pleasure of Allah is earned.
8) IT is a sunnat of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
9) IT increases memory.
10) IT increases a person’s eloquence.
11) IT relives one from Headaches.
12) IT also illuminates the face causes the teeth to shine.
13) IT faciliates digestion and strengthens the stomach and bowels.
14) IT increases the birth of children .
15) IT removes body heat .
16) IT slows down old age.
17) IT strength the back .
18) IT purifies the Heart.
