Hi friends,


         Every Friday afternoon, after the Juma prayers, the Imam and his eleven year old son would  go out into their town and hand out "PATH TO PARADISE" and other Islamic literature.
This particular and fortunate Friday afternoon, as the time came for the Imam and his son to go to the streets with their booklets,  it was very cold outside, as well as pouring rain.
The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said,  'OK, dad, I'm ready!'

        His dad asked, 'Ready for what' 'Dad, it's time we go out and distribute these Islamic books.' Dad responds, 'Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring rain.' 
The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking, 'But Dad, aren't people still going to hell, even though it's raining?'

      Dad answers, 'Son, I am not going out in this weather.'  Despondently, the boy asks, 'Dad, can I go Please' His father hesitated for a moment then said, 'Son, you can go. Here are the booklets. Be careful son.'
'Thanks, Dad!'

And with that, he was off and out into the rain. This eleven year old boy walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing everybody he met in the street a pamphlet or a booklet.

After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled wet and down to his VERY LAST BOOKLET.He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to hand a booklet to, but the streets were totally deserted.

Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the Side walk to the front door and rang the door bell. He rang the bell, but nobody answered..He rang it again and again, but still no one answered. He waited but still no answer.

Finally, he turned to leave, but something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something holding him there on the front  porch!

He rang again and this time the door slowly opened. Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady. She softly asked, 'What can I do for you, son?' With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this little boy said, 'Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell you that ALLAH REALLY LOVES AND CARES FOR YOU and I came to give you my very last booklet which will tell you all about God, the real purpose of creation, and how to achieve His pleasure.' With that, he handed her his last booklet and turned to leave. She called to him as he departed. 'Thank you, son! And God Bless You!'

Next week on Friday afternoon after Juma prayers, the Imam was giving some lectures. As he concludes the lectures, he asked, 'Does anybody have questions or want to say anything?' Slowly, in the back row among the ladies, an elderly lady's voice was heard over the speaker.

'No one in this gathering knows me. I've never been here before. You see, before last Friday I was not a Muslim, and thought I could be.

My husband died few years ago, leaving me totally alone in this world.. Last Friday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, I was contemplating suicide as I had no hope left.

So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of my home.. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck. Standing on that chair, so lonely and broken- hearted. I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me.

I thought, I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away.

I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly....

I thought to myself again, 'Who on earth could this be?

Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me.' I loosened the rope from my neck and started for the front door, all the while the bell rang louder and louder.

When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you! The words that came from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead TO LEAP TO LIFE as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, 'Ma'am, I just came to tell you that:


Then he gave me this booklet, Path To Paradise that I now hold in my hand.

As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain,  I closed my door and read slowly every word of this book.

Then I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair.

I wouldn't be needing them anymore.You see? I am now a Happy Vicegerent of the One True God.

Since the address of your congregation was stamped on the back of this booklet, I have come here to personally say THANK YOU to God's little angel who came just in the nick of time and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity in hell.'

There was not a dry eye in the mosque.

The shouts of TAKBIR.. ALLAH AKBAR.. rented the air.

Imam-Dad descended from the pulpit to the front row where the little angel was seated....

He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably.

Probably no jama'at has had a more glorious moment, and probably this universe has never seen a father that was more filled with love and honor for his son...

Remember, God's message CAN make the difference in the life of  someone close to you.

Common sense is not so common !

Hi friends,

       Many of us have Common sense. We must have heard people saying "Don't you have common sense"?? What this actually mean??? Here is a short story to explain that in detail..

          There came a big flood, and the water around Bhola's house was rising steadily..

        Bhola was standing on the porch, watching water rising all around him, when a man in a boat came along and called to Bhola, "Get in the boat and I'll get you out of here. Bhola replied, "No thanks, God will save me."

       Bhola went into the house, and the water was starting to pour in. So, he went up to the second floor.

       As he looked out, another man in a boat came along, and he called to Bhola, "Get in the boat and I'll get you out of here."

      Again, Bhola replied, "No thanks. God will save me."

       The water kept rising. So, Bhola got out onto the roof.

        A helicopter flew over, and the pilot called down to Bhola, "I'll drop you a rope,grab onto it, and I'll get you out of here."

       Again Bhola replied, "No thanks. God will save me."

      The water rose and rose, and soon nearly covered the whole house. Bhola fell in, and drowned.

         When he arrived in Heaven, he saw God, and asked Him, "Why didn't you save me from that terrible flood? Did I not show you my faith?"

        With a loving but irritated tone God replied, "What more would you have me do? I sent people in two boats and a helicopter."

Powers in the Workplace!!

Hi friends,

Discussions        Everyone has power.The issue becomes what kind of power a person has and how someone uses that power.  Here are some of the common types of power found in the workplace.

      Coercive power is associated with people who are in a position to punish others. People fear the consequences of not doing what has been asked of them.
     Connection power is based upon who you know.  This person knows, and has the ear of, other powerful people within the organization.

     Expert power comes from a person’s expertise (duh!).  This is commonly a person with an acclaimed skill or accomplishment.
A person who has access to valuable or important information possesses informational power.

     Legitimate power comes from the position a person holds.  This is related to a person’s title and job responsibilities.  You might also hear this referred to as positional power.

      People who are well-liked and respected can have referent power.
Reward power is based upon a person’s ability to bestow rewards.  Those rewards might come in the form of job assignments, schedules, pay or benefits.

Management Lesson!!

Hi friends,

             Here is a short and sweet Management Lesson. Just read this interesting story!!!

           A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So, he goes over to the dog and notices' it has a note in its mouth. He takes the note and it reads, "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please."

        The dog has money in its mouth, as well. The butcher looks inside and, low and behold, there is a $10 note there. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth. The butcher is so impressed, and since it's about closing time, he decides to shut the shop and follow the dog. So off he goes.

        The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to a level crossing the dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button.Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn. They do, and it walks across the road, with the butcher following him all the way. The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus.

        The dog then shows a ticket, which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor. The butcher is nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other passengers in the bus.The dog then sits near the driver's seat looking outside waiting for the bus stop to come. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor.

       Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close to the stop. It opens the big iron gate and rushes inside towards the door.As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door.

        The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at him.

        The butcher surprised with this, runs up, and stops the guy. "What in heaven's name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for the life of me!" to which the guy responds: "You call this clever? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog's forgotten his key."

Moral of the story...

          You may continue to Exceed onlookers' expectations but shall always fall short of Manipulative, Crooked & Use & Throw bosses' expectations.

Migraine & allergy attacks-Some Thoughts!!


         I wanted to express my gratitude to share valuable tips and suggestions to get relief from the dangerous drugs i had been taking to get over migraine which were completely ruining physically but also had a very adverse effect.

          No one has been able to get grip on Migrane and no Dr can claim "there is cure for Migrane". One has to apply his mind and check what suits him/her. Sometimes, you get amazing results. That is why people suffering from Migrane go to anyone and everyone. Whether it is proven quack, expert, home remedies, tips from friends and so on.

           All sufferers of Migrane and allergy attacks want immediate Peace and some are even willing to die than bear the pain.

          Migrane and allergy attacks can create havoc. It doesnt allow a patient to sleep as the head keeps thumping. It makes one sluggish. Active Sex Life is ruined. Migrane or an allergy attack gives a feeling as if someone is brutally torturing you in a jail.

What one needs to observe is :

1. Avoid eating : Cucumber, brinjals, curd, tamarind, sour items, bhel puris, chaat items with tamarind water, paani puri, sugary sweets, maida based items, deep fried items, drink luke warm water (with tulsi leaves and 2 pcs of clove) - have min. 2 ltrs during the day. Go low on water as evening approaches. 

Do regular steam inhalation for couple of minutes. Vacuum clean beds, pillows and car seats every fortnight. When this process is on, one must stay out of the house as inhaling dust can trigger the attack.

No loud music as it can trigger the attack. Do not see negative serials, negative talks and avoid discussing dirty gossips. The brain loves to churn all this once we go to sleep and then the trigger starts.

2. Avoid alcohol of any kind, non-veg & smoke completely (also the smell). No soft drinks, maida buiscuits or maida based rotis or anything, pickles, have brown bread and puffed rice (not white rice).

No Carpets in house and strictly avoid using deos. Avoid unhygenic areas with sharp smell ( that includes dust, paint, house or train/public urinals, restaurants, hotel rooms etc). Maintain excellent Oral hygiene 24 x7.

Strictly wear U/v sunglasses when going out. Do not go out in direct sun. Wear white cap in Summer.

3. Eat freshly cooked food. No cold water and icecreams. Avoid citric fruits. Eat seasonal fruits/salads first and then after 30-45 mins have meals. Have early dinner.

 Get ionisers installed or get A.C with ioniser. Close windows in night whenever migrane/allergy is On. You may use A.C at room temperature.

 Go low on spice, salt and white sugar. Instead have jaggery based sweets. Develop taste for mixed salads (without salt and masala or v.low idoised salt). Strictly wash vegetables with luke warm water before using them for cooking/salad.

4. Drink green tea without sugar. Eat Five Grain/marrie buiscuits. No chocolates.

5. Go for walk early morning when sound and vehicle pollution is lowest. Avoid daily head bath. Avoid late night bath. Have early morning morning 5 minutes Sun and Air bath (rising Sun and only 5 min to start with).

6. Do Pranayam (Only 3 minutes can give dramatic results) - 2 hours before eating breakfast. Listen to soft Holy Hymns regularly early morning. Smile more genuinely (not the Airhostess plastic and commercial smile). A smile relaxes 64 heart muscles.

7. Do not speak embarassing words or ask embarassing questions. Observe everything but enquire gently and innocently.

8. Avoid speaking too much on cell phones. Switch over to SMS and email communication. Radiation from cell phones can also trigger Migrane.

9. Have good back up for cleaning, washing and sweeping the house. Stay away from all these jobs as cleaning chemicals are very powerful and can also trigger attack.

10. Go to hilly region to spend some time and breathe fresh air. Try homeopathy and Reiki. It will help you to get youthful energy back.

11. Regularly trim unwanted body hair and nails.

Migrane and allergy attacks drain out youthful energy and makes the body hugely old and age faster than you can dream.

Shanvi Davis-Great American Olympian!!!


     Shani Davis: Your Career Doesn’t Have to Be Conventional!!

                 A gold medalist in both the Torino and Vancouver Olympics, Shani Davis made history in Italy when he became the first African-American to win an individual gold medal in the Winter Games.

                A speed skater from Chicago, Davis’ unlikely journey started out as a toddler gliding along on roller skates. He skated so fast and so well that he replaced his wheels with blades at just six years old. By 16, Davis decided that he wanted to make the Olympic team. Ten years later, his lifetime of dedication has paid off enormously.

                Your career, doesn’t have to be traditional. Davis’ story reminds us that by tenaciously staying on track, our goals are realizable over the long-term. Davis is a trailblazer; he didn’t wait for others to go before him. Had he followed convention, he may never have tried out for the Olympics, let alone win multiple medals.

                  Remember: it’s your dream.

        Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve something just because nobody else has.
