Islam is derived from the Arabic word “salaama” and has a two-fold meaning: peace and submission to God. This submission requires a fully conscious and keen effort to submit to the one Almighty God. One must intentionally andconscientiously give oneself to the service of Allah.
It is a universal religion and its objective is to create and cultivate in man the quality and approach of Islam. The faith of this religion is the oneness and sovereignty of God, which has shaped and looked upon all human races as one family.
Islam religion is against the idea that there are privileged people. Islam stands for the equality of all humanity without any discrimination on the basis of race, caste, sex, place of birth etc.
Unlike other living things human beings have thinking potential and so they are invited to summit to the goodwill of God and obey His law i.e. become a Muslim. Anyone who follows Islam is known as Muslim.
The word “Muslim” is originated from the Arabic word signifying a person totally devoted to the will of the God. And the word “Allah” meaning “the one True God” is also of Arabic origin.
The history of Islam centers around Muhammad (messenger of god)(PBUH). He was born around 570 A.D. and was brought up by his extended family after the death of his parents. As he grew, he became discontented with polytheism and came to believe in one God, Allah. He began to have religious visions around age 40. During these visions, Muhammad (PBUH)would receive “messages” or “revelations” from God. He would memorize them and teach them to his followers. These visions are now recorded in the holy Qur’an (or Koran). Muhammad (PBUH)continued to receive these visions until his death in 632 A.D. The Quran has 114 suras. The Quran is believed to be the last revealed word of Allah and the basic source of Islamic teachings and laws.
Eid MubarakThe Quran covers a variety of issues such as creeds, morality, history of humanity, worship, knowledge, wisdom, good-man relationship, and human relationship in all aspects. Comprehensive teaching on which can be built sound systems of social justice, economics, politics, legislation, jurisprudence, law and international relations, are important contents of the Quran.
The complete acceptance of the teachings and guidance of ‘Allah’ as recorded in the Quran is the religion of Islam. Islam preaches faith in the oneness and sovereignty of Allah, which makes man aware of the meaningfulness of the Universe and of his place in it. This belief frees him from all fears and superstitions by making him conscious of the presence of the Almighty Allah and of man’s obligations towards Him. This faith must be expressed and tested in action. Faith alone is not enough. Islam religion has five pillars, essentially to be followed by every good Muslim, and they are:
(1) confession of faith in God and in Muhammad (PBUH)as God’s messenger
(2) daily prayer at the five appointed times
(3) fasting during the month of Ramadan
(4) paying an alms-tax and giving charity to the poor and
(5) pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca and its sacred shrine, the Kaaba.
Islam protects all the human rights: rights to life, liberty, freedom, equality, and justice and above this one of the basic concern is the security of the person. Islam teaches that the closest to Allah and the most beloved of Allah are those who are the best in piety. Thus all people, male and female, and regardless of race, color, nationality or ethnicity, are considered and treated as equal before Allah and before the law. Today Islamic religion has become the second largest religion in the world. Muslim occupies 20% of all the people of the world. In today’s world racism, prejudice and discrimination have become a widespread problem of the entire mankind. Islam, for the last 1400 years has tried to end this discrimination and a unique example of oneness and brotherhood of all mankind can be seen clearly during the Hajj. Islam has established a universal brotherhood. It has stressed that a true brotherhood can be established only by virtue of mankind’s strong relationship with one another through Allah.

- iPhone ECGTo all my fellow medical doctor colleques: You must see this mail. It is so much easier and cheaper I think compared to our usual ECG machines which will cost us thousands . However, also bear in mind that the doctor featured in this video is also a good businessman I think ! Can this introduction of ECG technology or software be patented ?…rightfully shouldn’t for the sake of medical science advancement !
Perhaps in future, our patients having this i-phones could even learn to transmit to us his or her heart attack ECG for consultations and treatment from home or anywhere ! Fantastic !!
To all my non doctor friends: Take note of this new technology and be informed ! Interesting isn’t ?

- Story of dying PopeThe old and frail Pope lay dying in the hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people of the world. He motioned for his nurse to come near.
“Yes, Father?” said the nurse.
“I would really like to see Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif before I die, please call the Pakistani Embassy in Rome and send them my request” whispered the pope.
“I’ll see what I can do, Father,” replied the nurse.
The nurse sent the request to the Embassy and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived. Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif would be delighted to visit the Pope.
As they went to the hospital, Nawaz commented to Zardari “I don’t know why the old man wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images.” Zardari couldn’t help but agree.
When they arrived at the Pope’s room, the Pope took Zardari’s hand in his right hand and Nawaz Sharif’s hand in his left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old Pope’s.
Finally Nawaz spoke. “Holy Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?”
The old Pope slowly replied “I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” The old priest continued…
“He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same….!!!!!”

God – Bete, mannat maang.
Man -Please mujhe phir se unmarried kar do.
God – beta ‘mannat’ maangne ko kaha hai, “Jannat” nahi !
A man was granted two wishes by God,
He asked for the best drink & the best woman ever.
Next moment he got mineral water & Mother Teresa.
Teacher: In 3 Mein farak Batao… call GIRL,GIRL FRIEND or BiWI ??
Sari Class chup ho gayi, itne mein MONTY bola: Madam ji, prepaid,

Beta: Papa meri teacher kitni mast hai na!
Father: Beta teacher maa ke baraber hoti hai..
Beta: Aap to hamesha apni hi khushi dekhte ho …;)
There are 3 kinds of men in this world.

Puri LIFE ko Sudhaarne ke liye ek WIFE kafi hai,
Par ek WIFE ko sudhaarne k liye puri LIFE bhi kam hai, –

Wives are magicians.

Women live a Better, Longer & Peaceful Life, as compared to men.
