HOW MY BLOG STARTED:

You can’t force yourself to write.

It is an inspiration that make your brain bright.

I am neither a poet, nor even a writer. I think of myself as a Science motivator and truth searcher. I write because I like writing. I like to express myself. Things which I never share with anyone I can share here.  Like any normal kid I wanted to talk with everyone about my thoughts, my feelings and my dreams. But I was different. I had a nasal voice. When I was a child, my friends and other school boys used to mock me, imitate my voice and laugh at me. I pretend to smile but my eyes never supported me. That makes me realise that if I have to talk to other, the only way is through writing my thoughts and share. However back then, there were not so much facilities. My Father was a Research officer in Unani Medicine. We belong to middle class family. There were no laptops, forget about internet.

As I grow up, I started writing even though my English grammar was very weak. I was 21 when I first start serious writing. Initially it was hard to write just a sentence. I have to think what to write for long time. Slowly I started writing one page of my diary in one hour. It was quite an improvement. However, I didn’t continue it for long time due to other responsibilities. As I started working, I find it difficult to write due to scarcity of time. For next ten years I hardly wrote anything. After ten years I again decided to write and this time with high discipline. I was in Qatar and my wife was in India. So, after office time I had two to three hours free to write. For six month, I wrote on Facebook and other free social media. Later when my wife came to Qatar with my beautiful 6 month old daughter, there was no time to write. I kept my laptop in Almera . Again for 5 years, there was a draught period in my writing.

Six month back, I started writing again. This time my aim is to become a professional blogger if not writer and to earn some money from my writing. This goal is still far away but slowly and steadily I am moving forward and this time I will not stop writing.

From last 20 years, I am keeping these coins with me. It is one of my hobby to collect coins. Their cost varies from few Indian rupees to  several US Dollars. Most collectors already have some of these coins. But sometimes you find a coin so rare that in international market, you can sell it in more than $1000. So, if you have some rare coins first check out its cost online and how rear actually your coin is before selling it to anyone.

Copernicus — The Science Geek

In this post I’ll talk about Nicolas Copernicus (1473 – 1543) and the heliocentric theory. The move away from the prevailing Earth-centred theory of the Universe to the heliocentric theory represents one of the greatest advances in astronomy ever made.

An ordinary person with extraordinary mission:

 

This is a story of an extra-ordinary person who chooses love over hate and peace over war. When other ordinary persons give up due to pain and suffering he continues with his passion-a passion to make videos to spread peace, love and happiness. Originally from Palestine he moved to USA. When everyone uploaded videos on YouTube, he shared them on Facebook. Today he is having 5.6 million followers on Facebook page. He is an Arab but still do not have Arabic accent.

His name is “Nas” which mean people or human in Arabic. He made one minute video for public.Below is the link for his page. Do visit and watch his videos. When I watched his video I became his fan. This post is dedicated to Nas.

Avoid Dr Zakir Naik views in Shariah matters

We all appreciate memorizing power and information Dr.Zakir Naik has about comparative religions and Islam in particular. He is involved in many great works. But here is a word of cautious for all Muslims who consider him their Ideal or follow his preaching blindly just because he gives reference for everything. Below is a link where speeches and views of Dr. Zakir naik were scrutinized by Mufti thoroughly while answering a question about Zakir Naik. Go to the link for details as it is very long. Few important points I am listing below from the discourse:

  • Many of his views were found contradictory to Sahi Hadees.
  • Many of his interpretation of Quranic verses were against the tafseers written by earlier Islamic scholars
  • He is a da’ii of Islam and not to be considered as Scholar of Islam. He is not a qualified Aalim of deen. His comments on fiqh have no merit.
  • He is involved in an effort to turn the Muslim Ummah away from following the Mujtahid Imams.
  • The opinions of Dr Zakir Naik in Shariah matters and injunctions will not be deemed acceptable unless they are endorsed by a trusted scholar or a Mufti and general public are advised not to heed his opinions in Shariah matters.
