Do not turn on A/C immediately as soon as you enter the car! May 14, 2009

Posted by ibnmahadi in Uncategorized.


Please open the windows after you enter your car and do not turn ON the air-conditioning immediately. According to a research done, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emits Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen- take note of the heated plastic smell in your car). In addition to causing cancer, it poisons your bones, causes anemia, and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer may also cause miscarriage.

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with the windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene. If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level… & the people inside the car will inevitably inhale an excess amount of the toxins.

It is recommended that you open the windows and door to give time for the interior to air out before you enter. Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver, and is very difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

“When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others”

LIVE APPEAL FOR PAKISTAN CRISIS-Islam Channel (SKY channel 813) Wednesday May 13th 2009 8pm-1am

UN says 1 million internal refugees on the move.

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced from the districts of Buner and Lower Dir in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) since fighting flared in northern Pakistan last month. The government is preparing for up to 1 million internal refugees, the largest displacement crisis in Pakistan’s history.

According to UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), in the Swat Valley some 200,000 people had been displaced since August 2008 and another 300,000 are on the move or about to flee. Added to the 550,000 already internally displaced in the refugee camps, the crisis threatens to be the largest man-made humanitarian disaster in Pakistan’s post-independence history.

With the conflict zone itself having become a no-go area for relief agencies, Muslim Aid is concentrating on providing essential life support to those in the refugee camps. Shelter, food, utensils, clean water and medical supplies are urgently needed.

So far Muslim Aid has provided:

• Tents for internally displaced families that can accommodate a family of 6/7 benefiting up to 3,000 people.

• 1,000 jerry cans for carrying water.

• 800 mattresses and 500 kitchen sets have already been distributed.

• An emergency medical tent where a 1,000 patients will be treated with basic medical supplies.

• 300,000 Aquatabs, providing 300,000 litres of clean water.

Please help us to provide shelter, clean water and non food items to thousands of families who have been left with nothing.

• £100 will buy tents for 12 families.

• £25 will buy pots, pans, cutlery and other Kitchen utensils.

• £10 will buy 10 Jerry cans to carry water.

You can make a difference.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Credit Cards April 24, 2009

Posted by ibnmahadi in Uncategorized.
add a comment

Most people know misusing credit cards can lead to debt disaster. However, even if you’re generally sensible with your credit card, the relationship you have with your flexible friend may not be as simple as it seems.

Lenders love to include tricky terms and conditions in credit agreements, which often muddy the waters of how cards work – and can mean you end up paying far more for the privilege of using your plastic…

1. Negative payment hierarchy
As far as most lenders are concerned, not all forms of debt are the same – even when they sit on the same credit card.

Companies use categories to classify different types of debt. Balance transfer debt, purchases debt and cash withdrawal debts, for instance, are usually listed individually on bills and can attract wildly different rates of interest.

Most lenders put the cheapest form of debt you hold (usually balance transfer debt) at the top of the payment priority list, leaving the most expensive (often cash withdrawal debt) at the bottom. This is called a negative payment hierarchy because, in terms of how much they cost, it means you’re paying back your debts in reverse order.

For example, if you held £2,000 of cheap balance transfer (BT) debt and £500 of expensive cash withdrawal debt (CW) on the same credit card, you would have to pay off your entire BT before you were able to make a dent in your outstanding CW balance.

In the meantime, this ‘untouchable’ CW debt would be racking up hefty interest charges, potentially costing you a significant sum.

This is why, as I explained in my article Recession Busting Balance Transfers, it’s usually a disastrous idea to spend on a balance transfer credit card.

2. Monthly minimum repayments (MMRs)
The MMR is the minimum sum you must pay off your credit card balance each month. However, lenders generally set these so low they barely cover the amount of interest charged on your debt.

Typically, a credit card’s MMR will be either 2% or 3% of the total balance, or £5 (whichever is the greater).

However, some lenders specify even lower MMRs. Cards issued by the Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) group, for example, come with an MMR of just 1%.

Blithely paying back the MMR is a catastrophe for any cardholder who wants to beat down their borrowing. This is because sticking with the small monthly sum most credit card companies demand will not help you diminish your debt – and in fact could mean it lasts for decades.

Here’s a scary example: a person who held a fairly modest credit card balance of £2,000 at a rate of 17%, and who repaid only the MMR of 2% each month, would be saddled with that debt for a staggering 32 years!

It may seem shocking, but it makes perfect mathematical sense. This is because MMRs are generally worked out as percentages – and as your credit card balance decreases, so will the amount you’re regularly required to pay off.

No matter how large your credit card balance, it’s crucial to try and overshoot your lender’s MMR when you’re making repayments. Paying off an affordable fixed sum each month could significantly shorten the lifespan of your credit card debt.

3. Foreign transaction charges
When you’re on holiday, it’s often tempting to pound your plastic. After all, whipping a credit card out of your wallet is far less hassle than queuing to exchange currency.

Sadly, if you use the wrong credit card abroad it’s likely you’ll be stung by a host of horrible charges. Many lenders add foreign currency loading fees (typically around 2.75%) onto transactions made abroad, and also charge high interest rates and fees for cash withdrawals.

If you’re a keen traveller and prefer to use credit cards on holiday, it makes sense to get a credit card specifically for this purpose. The Post Office Platinum MasterCard is a good choice as it will not add a foreign currency loading fee to overseas spending (though you will still be charged for withdrawing cash from an ATM).

4. Interest free periods
An often unsung benefit of credit cards is the interest free period they offer. Usually, any purchases you make won’t start accruing interest for several weeks – and this applies to bog-standard credit cards as well as special promotional deals.

So, what’s the catch? Firstly, some credit card providers offer longer interest free periods than others.

While many lenders allow customers up to 59 days to pay their bills, others offer significantly smaller windows of opportunity. The Lloyds TSB Advance MasterCard, for instance, offers no interest free period at all.

Secondly, the interest period that comes with any credit card only remains interest free if the balance is paid in full and on time.

If you don’t repay what you’ve borrowed within the time your card issuer allows, interest charges will be applied – and back-dated to the days when your purchases were made.

5. Penalty charges
If you use a credit card, it’s crucial to avoid missing payments and ensure you don’t exceed your credit limit. If you do, you’ll be breaking the terms of your credit agreement with the card issuer – and you’ll be liable to penalty charges of £12 for each mistake you make.

Worse still, it’s likely that a missed payment will leave a blemish on your credit history. This could make it harder for you to obtain credit in the future.

Just as importantly, breaking the rules with a balance transfer card might mean you lose your promotional deal. I’ve heard horror stories of 0% offers being withdrawn, even after just one late payment. Don’t let this happen to you!

Gaza update April 1, 2009

Special Greetings Here!

Assalamu alaykum

When the devastating conflict in Gaza began on December 27th 2008, Muslim Aid launched a £5 million appeal to send emergency relief to the people of Gaza. Although we expected a fantastic response, we did not expect your generosity to reach record breaking heights- it demonstrated a commitment to serving humanity that stretched way beyond a few pounds from your purses Alhamdulillah.

Jazak Allah Khair

May Allah (SWT) reward you for showing your compassion and sympathy for the people of Gaza.

“Say: “No reward do I ask of you: it is (all) in your interest: my reward is only due from Allah.” [The Qu’ran Saba 34:47].

See your amazing response to our appeal….

• You hit the £1 million mark after 2 weeks.

• You raised a record breaking £100,000 during ‘Qiyam and Qunut for Gaza’ prayer at the East London Mosque.

• You raised a fantastic £300,000 at our fundraising dinner ‘An Evening for the Children of Gaza’.

• Our volunteers collected over £10,280 through street, door and tube collections.

• To date you have raised £1,950,964.92.

An Evening for the Children of Gaza

A big jazak Allah khair to all those that attended and made the night a great success. Guests were treated to a wonderful three course meal as well as A-list entertainment and speeches. There were thought provoking nasheeds by internationally renowned artist Zain Bhikha, Labayk, Abdullah Role and a surprise guest appearance by Dawud Wharnsby. There were also stirring speeches by brothers Anas Al-Tikriti (President of the Cordoba Foundation) and Dr Daud Abdullah (Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain).

The pinnacle of the night was our Gaza Water Challenge – the challenge was to raise £200,000 for Muslim Aid’s Gaza water purification plant – amazingly with just over 400 guests in the room, the challenge was well and truly conquered with over £300,000 raised! Jazak Allah khair again, we could not have done this without you.

A special thanks to our sponsors, without whom this event would not have been possible: Greenleaf Events (great food and service); Euro Quality Lambs and Baraka (much needed financial support for the event); Naiem Khan and Zafar Iqbal (for the excellent sound and stage system) and the London Hilton Metropole (for the great venue).

Our long-term plans

It is so important to us that every penny you donate goes to the people of Gaza. We are working with local partners to assess how your money will fund the second phase of our work. Muslim Aid believes that rebuilding homes and rehabilitating buildings are vital to get communities back on their feet. Insh’Allah we will also continue our work with the Palestine Trauma Centre to give trauma counselling to affected families.

See how we will help the people of Gaza….

• Establishing a Muslim Aid Field Office which will coordinate our rehabilitation projects throughout the region. We will be employing local staff and volunteers which will be able to deliver our projects more effectively.

• Rehabilitation of a water purification plant which will purify water for over 250,000 people per day. The plant will provide 100 schools, 40 mosques, 10 hospitals with clean drinking water as well 500 families with water tanks. The clean drinking water will also mean fewer illnesses due to contaminated water supplies. We will also teach 100 children and students about the importance of conserving water.

• The provision of medicines for those left injured by the conflict.

• Taking experienced healthcare professionals from the UK and training 15 social workers, psychologists, teachers, nurses and project staff to work with traumatised children at the work Palestine Trauma centre.

• Continuing our work with the Palestine Trauma Centre to make sure that between 250-300 children and their families receive trauma counselling, advice and long term support.

• Working with local partners to repair five clinics as well as providing life saving medical equipment.

• Working with Noor al Maarifa, Muslim Aid will provide over 700 families with the equipment and construction materials to rebuild their homes.

Remember the people of Gaza still need your support – please continue to give!

Global Action March 30, 2009

1. International Call for Global Day of ActionBoycott Israel! Make it account for its crimes in Gaza!
30 March 2009 – Today, the Palestinian people scattered across the globe mark Land Day, commemorating the events of 33 years ago, when Israeli security forces shot and killed six young Palestinian citizens of Israel and injured many.

These brave youth were among the thousands protesting Israel’s expropriation of Palestinian land to build new Jewish colonies and expand existing Jewish cities. Today, Land Day symbolizes Palestinian resistance to Israel’s ongoing land expropriation, apartheid, colonization and occupation. It marks as well the first Global Day of Action for Palestinian rights and for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), launched at the 2009 World Social Forum in Brazil.

Israel’s racist policies of confiscating Palestinian land and forcibly displacing Palestinians have gained in intensity since the original Land Day. The policies of incremental ethnic cleansing that Israel calls “Judaization” are proceeding apace in Palestine’s historic cities, including Jerusalem, Jaffa, Acre, Lydda and Ramla, with daily home demolitions and forced evictions. Israel’s aggressive land grab continues with the construction and expansion of the Apartheid Wall and colonies on occupied Palestinian land. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians face imminent displacement as their villages are slated to be erased from the map in their entirety.

(Al Wala’). Tanpa kesetiaan, kepimpinan akan pincang .
إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمْ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ . وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللَّهِ هُمْ الْغَالِبُونَ .
“Sesungguhnya Penolong kamu hanyalah Allah, dan RasulNya, serta orang-orang yang beriman, yang mendirikan sembahyang, dan menunaikan zakat, sedang mereka rukuk (tunduk menjunjung perintah Allah).Dan sesiapa yang menjadikan Allah dan rasulnya serta orang-orang yang beriman itu penolongnya (maka berjayalah dia), kerana sesungguhnya golongan (yang berpegang kepada ugama) Allah, itulah yang tetap menang.”( Al Maidah 55 – 56 )

2. Mendapat ketaatan daripada ahli .

Ingat! Kita tanggung di dunia tetapi jawab di hadapan ALlah di akhirat nanti. Menjadi ketua bukannya suatu tasyrif-kemuliaan tetapi suatu taklif-pertanggungj awaban.

1. Berlaku adil dalam seluruh perlaksanaan .
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَأْمُرُ بِالْعَدْلِ وَالإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَاءِ ذِي الْقُرْبَى وَيَنْهَى عَنْ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ وَالْبَغْيِ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ
Sesungguhnya Allah menyuruh berlaku adil, dan berbuat kebaikan, serta memberi bantuan kepada kaum kerabat; dan melarang daripada melakukan perbuatan-perbuatan yang keji dan mungkar serta kezaliman. Ia mengajar kamu (dengan suruhan dan laranganNya ini), supaya kamu mengambil peringatan mematuhi-Nya.” ( النحل 90 )

2. Memimpin ahli-ahli menuju keredhaan Allah perlu ada dua suasana :
-Suasana keinginan tinggi melakukan pelengkapan diri .
-Suasana kesungguhan mengabdikan diri kepada Allah .

3. Musyawarah dengan ahli-ahli .
فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِنْ اللَّهِ لِنْتَ لَهُمْ وَلَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لانْفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الأَمْرِ فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ
Maka dengan sebab rahmat (yang melimpah-limpah) dari Allah (kepadamu wahai Muhammad), engkau telah bersikap lemah-lembut kepada mereka (sahabat-sahabat dan pengikutmu), dan kalaulah engkau bersikap kasar lagi keras hati, tentulah mereka lari dari kelilingmu. Oleh itu maafkanlah mereka (mengenai kesalahan yang mereka lakukan terhadapmu), dan pohonkanlah ampun bagi mereka, dan juga bermesyuaratlah dengan mereka dalam urusan (peperangan dan hal-hal keduniaan) itu. kemudian apabila engkau telah berazam (sesudah bermesyuarat, untuk membuat sesuatu) maka bertawakallah kepada Allah, sesungguhnya Allah Mengasihi orang-orang yang bertawakal kepadaNya” ( ال عمران 159 )

‘Au zubillah himinashsyaitan nirrajim…bismilla hirrahmannirrahi m’

Aku berlindung dengan Allah daripada syaitan yang direjam, Allah yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Mengasihani.
Bacalah ayat ini sebelum anda memulakan apa-apa saja kerja kerana dengan bacaan ini akan keluarlah iblis dan syaitan yang berada didalam tubuh kita dan juga di sekeliling kita, mereka akan berlari keluar umpama
cacing kepanasan.  Sebelum anda masuk rumah, bacalah ayat di atas, kemudian bacalah surah Al-Ikhlas (iaitu ayat: Qulhuwallahu ahad. Allahussamad. Lamyalid walam yu-lad. Walam yakul lahu kufuwan ahad.) sebanyak 3 kali.

Masuklah rumah dengan kaki kanan dan dengan membaca bismillah.. Berilah salam kepada anggota rumah dan  sekiranya tiada orang di rumah berilah salam kerana malaikat rumah akan menyahut. Amalkanlah bersolat
kerana salam pertama (ianya wajib) yang diucapkan pada akhir solat akan membantu kita menjawab persoalan kubur.
Apabila malaikat memberi salam, seorang yang jarang bersolat akan sukar menjawab salam tersebut.. Tetapi bagi mereka yang kerap bersolat, amalan daripada salam yang diucap di akhir solat akan menolongnya menjawab
salam malaikat itu.

Diriwayatkan oleh Iman Bukhari sabda Nabi Muhammad s.a.w:
‘Barang siapa membaca Qul huwa’llahu ahad 100,000 kali maka sesungguhnya ia telah menebus dirinya dari  Allah, maka menyeru yang menyeru dari pihak Allah di langit dan di bumi.  Kusaksikan bahwa sifulan itu telah menjadi pemendekaan Allah sesungguhnya ia adalah pemerdekaan dari sisi Allah, Sesungguhnya ia adalah
pemerdekaan dari neraka’. Inilah yang dinamakan membaca Qulhua’llah ahad satu hatam yaitu 100,000 kali dengan diwiridkan seberapa ribu kesanggupan kita

Sabda Rasulullah S.A.W yang bermaksud:

Barangsiapa membaca surah Al-Ikhlas sewaktu sakit sehingga dia meninggal dunia, maka dia tidak akan membusuk di dalam kuburnya, akan selamat dia dari kesempitan kuburnya dan para malaikat akan membawanya dengan sayap mereka melintasi titian
siratul mustaqim lalu menuju ke syurga. (Demikian diterangkan dalam Tadzikaratul Qurthuby).
Rasulullah SAW pernah bertanya sebuah teka-teki kepada umatnya Siapakah antara Kamu yang dapat khatam Qur’an dalam jangkamasa dua-tiga minit? Tiada seorang
dari sahabatnya yang menjawab. Malah Saiyidina Ummar telah mengatakan bahawa ianya mustahil untuk mengatam Qur’an dalam begitu cepat. Kemudiannya
Saiyyidina Ali mengangkat tangannya. Saiyidina Ummar bersuara kepada Saiyidina Ali bahawa Saiyidina Ali (yang sedang kecil pada waktu itu) tidak tahu apa yang dikatakannya itu. Lantas Saiyidina Ali membaca surah Al-Ikhlas tiga kali. Rasulullah SAW menjawab  dengan mengatakan bahawa Saiyidina Ali betul. Membaca surah Al-Ikhlas sekali ganjarannya sama dengan membaca 10 jus kitab Al-Quran… Lalu dengan membaca surah Al-Ikhlas sebanyak tiga kali qatamlah Quran kerana ianya sama dengan membaca 30 jus Al-Quran.

Berkata Ibnu Abbas r..a. bahawa Rasulullah SAW telah bersabda:

Ketika saya (Rasulullah SAW) israk ke langit, maka saya telah melihat Arasy di atas 360,000 sendi dan jarak jauh antara satu sendi ke satu sendi ialah 300,000 tahun perjalanan.

Pada tiap-tiap sendi itu terdapat padang sahara sebanyak 12,000 dan luasnya setiap satu padang sahara itu seluas dari timur hingga ke barat. Pada setiap padang sahara itu terdapat 80,000 malaikat yang mana kesemuanya membaca surah Al-Ikhlas.

Setelah mereka selesai membaca surah tersebut maka berkata mereka: Wahai Tuhan kami, sesungguhnya pahala dari bacaan kami ini kami berikan kepada orang yang membaca surah Al-Ikhlas baik ianya lelaki mahupun perempuan.

Sabda Rasulullah SAW lagi:

Demi Allah yang jiwaku ditanganNya, sesungguhnya Qul Huwallahu Ahadu itu tertulis di sayap malaikat Jibrail a.s, Allahhus Somad itu tertulis di sayap malaikat Mikail a.s,
Lamyalid walam yuulad tertulis pada sayap malaikat Izrail a.s, Walam yakullahu kufuwan ahadu tertulis pada sayap malaikat Israfil a.s.

Siapa membaca surah Fatihah, al-ikhlas, al-falaq, dan an-annas setiap satu sebanyak 7 kali selepas solat jumaat, nescaya terpelihara dari perkara keji dan segala bala hinggalah ke jumaat yang berikiutnya.

Jika dibaca 3 surah ini al-ikhlas, al-falaq and an-nass pagi dan petang nescaya tidak mengalami apa-apa kesusahan.

Jika sekiranya kawan-kawan ingin mengumpul saham akhirat, sampaikanlah ilmu ini kepada kawan2 yang lain. Sepertimana sabda Rasulullah SAW ‘Sampaikanlah pesananku walaupun satu ayat’. Sesungguhnya apabila matinya seseorang anak Adam itu, hanya 3 perkara yang akan dibawanya bersama :

1) Sedekah/amal jariahnya
2) Doa anak-anaknya yang soleh
3) Ilmu yang bermanfaat yang disampaikannya kepada orang lain

What is RECESSION?? February 27, 2009

This Story is about a man who once upon a time was selling Hotdogs by the roadside.

He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers.

He was hard of hearing, so he never listened to the radio.

His eyes were weak, so he never watched television.

But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hotdogs.

He was smart enough to offer some attractive schemes to increase his sales.

His sales and profit went up.

He ordered more a more raw material and buns and use to sale more.

He recruited few more supporting staff to serve more customers.

He started offering home deliveries. Eventually he got himself a bigger and better stove.

As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from College, joined his father.
Then something strange happened.

The son asked, “Dad, aren’t you aware of the great recession that is coming our way?”

The father replied, “No, but tell me about it.” The son said, “The international situation is terrible.

The domestic situation is even worse. We should be prepared for the coming bad times.”

The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers, listened to the radio and watched TV.

He ought to know and his advice should not be taken lightly.

So the next day onwards, the father cut down his raw material order and buns, took down the colourful signboard,

removed all the special schemes he was offering to the customers and was no longer as enthusiastic.

He reduced his staff strength by giving layoffs.

Very soon, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hotdog stand.

And his sales started coming down rapidly, same is the profit.

The father said to his son, “Son, you were right”.

“We are in the middle of a recession and crisis. I am glad you warned me ahead of time.”

Moral of The Story:
It’s all in your MIND!
And we actually FUEL this recession much more than we think

NASA Confirmed – Sun Rise from the West (Signs of the Day of Judgement) February 16, 2009

Nasa – Sunrise from the West

The science of astronomy states that the speed of planet Mars has been decreasing in its course toward the eastern direction in the past few weeks to the level we notice the “waver” between the east and the west..and on Wednesday the 30th of July the planet movement stopped going toward the eastern direction.. Then in the months of August and September… Mars changed its course in the opposite direction to the West- and that until the end of September..which means the sun will rise now from the west on Mars!! And this weird phenomena of the opposite movement called “Retrograde Motion” Most scientist state that all the planets will go through the same once at least and our planet Earth is one of them.
Planet Earth will move in the opposite direction some day and the sun will rise from the west!! This might occur soon and we are unaware! The rise of the sun from the west is mentioned in the hadith and this is the major sign of the day of  judgment, most if not All, the minor signs have occurred. Wake up.
Our beloved messenger Mohamed (Peace Be Upon Him) said: “One of the signs of the hour..the sun will rise from the west, where no longer tauba(forgiveness) will be granted” !!And the strange thing..most of our  Shariah scholars mentioned that the rise of the sun from the west occurs  only once..on that day..the sun will rise from the west..then again from  the east..and continues until Allah wishes..and this is similar to what is
happening to Mars..it stops, then it changes its course of direction for a short period of time..then returns to way once it was.  And Abdullah Bin Amro (R.A.) said: (I memorized from the messenger (SAW) a hadith I will never forget..I heard the messenger of Allah (SAW) say: The first aya to come the rise of the sun from the west) [Ahmad]  And the messenger SAW “Allah (SWT) places HIS hand at night to forgive his morning sinners, and places in the morning to forgive his night sinners
until the sun rises from the west” [Muslim]
This piece of news is very important as it brings with it a great sign of  warning and remembrance of the coming of a new WORLD – the world of the Hereafter When we show this hadith that was told 1400 years ago about this miracle..you will see InshaALLAH, a lot will rivert to right path…And  the muslims if they see this phenomena happening in  Mars..who knows maybe it would bring them closer to our CREATOR.
May Allah (swt) keep all of us in the Right path and provide us with  success in this world as well as in the hereafter.

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[103:001] By Al-‘Asr (the time).
[103:002] Verily, man is in loss,
[103:003] Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth, and recommend one another to patience .

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ أَحْوَالَ المُسْلِمِِينَ فِي فِلِسطِينَ، اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ أَحْوَالَ

المُسْلِمِِينَ فِي فِلِسطِينَ وفي كُلِّ مَكَانٍ، يَا ذَا الجَلالِ وَالإِكْرِامِ.

Allahumma aslih ahwaalal-muslimeena fi filisteen, Allahumma aslih ahwaalal-muslimeena fi filisteena wa fi kulli makaanin ya dhul-jalali wal-ikraam.

O Allah! Rectify the affairs of the Muslims in Palestine. O Allah! Rectify the affairs of the Muslims in Palestine and in every place, O Lord of Majesty and Bounty.

اللهُمَّ إِنَّهُمْ مَغْلُوبُونَ فَانْتَصِرْ لَهُمْ.

Allahumma innahum maghloobuna fantasir lahum.

O Allah! They are helpless, so help them.

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْهِمْ صَبْراً وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَهُمْ وَانْصُرْهُمْ عَلَى القَوْمِ


Rabbana afrigh ‘alayhim sabran wa thabbit aqdamahum wansurhum ‘alal-qawmil- kafireen.

Our Lord! Pour upon them patience, make them steadfast, and grant them victory over the Disbelivers.

اللهُمَّ مَكِّرْ لَهُمْ، وَاكْفِهِمْ بِمَا شِئْتَ إِنْ تَنْصُرْهُمْ فَلا غَالِبَ لَهُمْ، وَإِنْ

تَخْذُلْهُمْ فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذي يَنْصُرهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِكَ.

Allahumma makkir lahum, wakfihim bimaa shi’t. In tansurhum falaa ghaliba lahum, wa in takhdhulhum fa man dhal-ladh’ yansurhum min ba’dika.

O Allah! Plot for them, and suffice them with what You please, if You support them then nobody can overpower them, and if You forsake them, then who will be able to support them after You?

لا إِلاَ إِلا اللهُ العَظيمُ الحَليم، لا إِلهَ إِلا اللهُ رَبَّ العَرْشِ العَظِيمِ، لا

إلهَ إِلا اللهُ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَتِ وَرَبُّ الأَرْضِ وَرَبُّ العَرْشِ الكَرِيمِ.

La ilaha illAllahul adhimul-haleem. La ilaha illAllahu, rabbul-arshil- adheem. La ilaha illAllahu rabbus-samawaati wa rabbul-ardi wa rabbul-arshil- kareem.

There is no God but Allah, the Mighty the Forebearing, there is no God but Allah, Lord of the Mighty Throne, There is no God but Allah, Lord of the Heavens and Lord of the Earth and Lord of the Noble Throne

اللهُمَّ مََنْ أَرادَنَا وَبِلادَنَا وَالمُسْلِمِينَ بِسُوءٍ فَأَشْغِلْهُ فِي نَفْسِهِ، وَاجْعَلْ

كَيْدَهُ فِي نَحْرِهِ، وَاجْعَلْ تَدْبِيرَهُ تَدْمِيرَه.

Allahumma man aradana wa biladina bi su’in fash-ghilhu fi nafsih, waj’al kaydahu fi nahrih, waj’al tadbirahu tadmeerah.

O Allah! Whoever wants to harm us and our lands and the Muslims, then keep them busy with their own troubles, and return their plots to their own necks, and make their plans the cause of their own destruction

اللهُمَّ شَتِّتْ شَمْلَهُمْ، وَمَزِّقْ جَمْعَهُمْ، وَخَرِّبْ دِيَارَهُمْ، وَدَمِّرْ

أَسْلِحَتَهُمْ، اللهُمَّ أَنْزِلْ عَلَيْهِمُ الأَعَاصيرَ المُدَمِّرَةَ، وَالأَمْرَاضَ الفَتَّاكَةَ

Allahumma shattit shamlahum, wa mazziq jam’ahum, wa kharrib diyarahum, wa dammir aslihatahum. Allahumma anzil ‘alayhimul-a’ aseeral-mudammir a wal-amradal- fattaaka

O Allah! Disperse their gatherings and shatter their unity, demolish their houses, destroy their weapons.. O Allah! Send upon them destructive hurricanes, and fatal disease
