I’m getting bored of this theme, so in about a day or two, you will see some massive appearance changes on my blog.
Also, I have a surprise for all my readers out there. Well its not really a surprise, but surprise is a catchy word so it worked well for a title. Many of my family and friends already know, but not the general readers on my blog. So inshaAllah I’ll give you a clue. It has to do with all the sites I started and maintain (MR.net, halaltube.com, sportshalaqah.com, dhikrtube.com). It also has to involve the advertising on it.
Who can guess what it is? (Family and close friends who know are not allowed to respond!)
George W. Bush is famous for his attachment to a painting which he acquired after becoming a “born again Christian.” It’s by W.H.D. Koerner and is entitled “A Charge to Keep.” Bush was so taken by it, that he took the painting’s name for his own official autobiography. And here’s what he says about it:
I thought I would share with you a recent bit of Texas history which epitomizes our mission. When you come into my office, please take a look at the beautiful painting of a horseman determinedly charging up what appears to be a steep and rough trail. This is us. What adds complete life to the painting for me is the message of Charles Wesley that we serve One greater than ourselves.
So in Bush’s view (or perhaps I should say, faith) the key figure, with whom he personally identifies, is a missionary spreading the word of the Methodist Christianity in the American West in the late nineteenth century.
The man in the above picture is the Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke who pauses while discussing the near-term economic outlook during testimony before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill on Thursday Jan. 17. You may have heard the big news of the recent drop in interest rates by the US Government. Well the man who called for it was, the man in the above picture.
Meet one of the sons of Osama bin Laden: Omar. He is from Osama’s first wife and one of the oldest of 19 children. He is convinced that there can be a truce between Al-Qaeda and the West. He has lived amongst them in Sudan and Afghanistan and trained with them. He also doesn’t attack his father but rather says all his father is doing is trying to defend the Islamic world.
He’s 26 and married to 52-year-old British woman Jane Felix-Browne who is now known as Zaina Alsabah. They want to be advocates of peace and plan on doing a 3000-mile horse race across North Africa for this.
Those are some cool dreadlocks. Anyways this guy has some good intentions. At least he did something extremely rare amongst Muslim brothers: marrying a woman twice his age.
