  3. Doomsday Vault

    salaam LONGYEARBYEN, Norway (AFP) - Aimed at providing mankind with a Noah's Ark of food in the event of a global catastrophe, an Arctic "doomsday vault" filled with samples of the world's most important seeds will be inaugurated here Tuesday. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and Nobel Peace Prize winning environmentalist Wangari Matai will be among the personalities present at the inauguration of the vault, which has been carved into the permafrost of a remote Arctic mountain, just some 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) from the North Pole. The vault, made up of three spacious cold chambers each measuring 27 x 10 metres (89 x 33 feet), create a long trident-shaped tunnel bored into the sandstone and limestone. It has the capacity to hold up to 4.5 million batches of seeds from all known varieties of the planet's main food crops, making it possible to re-establish plants if they disappear from their natural environment or are obliterated by major disasters. "The facility is built to hold twice as many varieties of agricultural crops as we think exist," explained Cary Fowler, executive director of the Global Crop Diversity Trust and project mastermind. "It will not be filled up in my lifetime, nor in my grandchildren's lifetime," he predicted in a phone interview with AFP. Norway has assumed the six million euro (8.9 million dollar) charge for building the vault in its Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, where ironically no crops grow. Secured behind an airlock door, the three airtight chambers have the capacity to house duplicates of samples from all the world's more than 1,400 existing seed banks. Many of the more vulnerable seed banks have begun contributing to the "doomsday vault" collection, but some of the world's biodiversity has already disappeared, with gene vaults in both Iraq and Afghanistan destroyed by war and a seed bank in the Philippines annihilated by a typhoon. By the time of the inauguration on Tuesday, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault should hold some 250,000 samples, which will remain the property of their countries of origin. Pakistan and Kenya, both undergoing periods of serious unrest, have sent seed collections, while samples sent from Colombia have been closely scrutinised by police to avoid the project becoming a vehicle for drug trafficking. "I've been working in this field for 30 years and I thought I knew at least all the crops," Fowler said. After receiving a list of all the different seeds in the vault, however, "I must admit there are a number of crops I've never heard of before," he said. That's a spectacular amount of diversity for Svalbard, where no trees can grow due to the permafrost and where the mercury plummets to an average 14 degrees Celsius below zero (6.8 degrees Fahrenheit) in winter. The Norwegian archipelago, which is home to some 2,300 people, was selected not despite but because of its inhospitable climate, as well as its remote location far from civil strife. The seeds of wheat, maize, oats and other crops will be stored at a constant temperature of minus 18 degrees Celsius, and even if the freezer system fails the permafrost will ensure that temperatures never rise above 3.5 degrees Celsius below freezing. "Svalbard really met all the criteria," Fowler said. Protected by high walls of fortified concrete, an armoured door, a sensor alarm and the native polar bears that roam the region, the "doomsday vault" has been built 130 metres (425 feet) above current sea level -- high enough that it would not flood if the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets melt entirely due to global warming. The concrete cocoon has also been built to withstand nuclear missile attacks or a plunging plane, something that could come in handy in light of the 6.4-scale tremor -- the biggest earthquake in Norway's history -- registered near the archipelago on Thursday.

  4. The Peace Cycle

    Salaam The Peace Cycle 2008 The next stage in the Peace Cycle – an urgent call for justice 2008 marks the 60th anniversary of the creation of the israeli state. The Peace Cycle does not pretend to know all the answers to the conflicts in the Middle East, and we would not deny any state its right to existence or security. We do however recognise that the creation of israel caused what the Palestinian people call “al Nakba†- the Palestinian catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands of the indigenous population of Palestine were expelled from their land, thousands of innocent men, women and children were killed, hundreds of Palestinian villages were destroyed, and a process of ethnic cleansing began which continues to this day. Sixty years on, millions of Palestinian people are either living as refugees across the world or as prisoners in their own land, occupied by a regime that controls every aspect of their lives and denies them freedom or security.

  8. The Shahadah

    Salaam - Definitely there could be no greater and more important a statement than 'Laa ilaaha illa Allah' (there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah). - It is the statement of declaration of belief in the Tawheed of Allah which is the dividing line between Imaan and kufr - It was the call of all of the previous Messengers and Prophets. - Allah (T) Himself attested to the importance of this statement in the Quraan: He (T) said: "...and know that Laa ilaaha ill Allah (that there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah)..." [47:19, 20:8, 3:18, 59:22-3] As long as this statement is an obligation for an unbeliever to declare in order for him to become a Muslim, and also, since a person who pronounces it faithfully his property and life are safeguarded in this world, it becomes an obligation upon any Muslim who wants to understand the Deen of Islaam to realize its meaning, merits, principles, conditions and its place in life. - Remembering Allah (Dhikr Allah) is one of the most important commandments of Allah. This He Himself commanded in many verses of the Quraan, especially after the performance of important religious obligations: "...Then when you leave Arafat, remember Allah (by glorfying and praising Him) at the Mash`ar il-Haraam. And remember Allah (by invokingAllah for all good) as He has guided you..." [2:198] "Then when you have accomplished your 'Manasik' (all the rights of Hajj); remember Allah as you remember your father with a strong remembrance..." [2:200] He (T) also said: "...and establish prayers for My remembrance." [20:14] The best way to remember Allah is described to us in the Hadeeth of the Messenger (S), he said: "...and the best (supplication) I and the other prophets who were sent who were sent before me proclaimed was: There is no deity worthy of worship but Allah, He is Alone and has no partner. To Him belongs the Ownership (of everything), and to Him belongs all Praise, and He has total power over all things." [Laa ilaaha ill Allah, wah.dahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul h.amdu wa huwa `alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer.] At-Tirmidhi The Messenger of Allah (S) also said: "The best remembrance of Allah is to say 'laa ilaaha ill Allah' (there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah)." All of the above points highlight the importance of this 'kalima' which we will try to explain in some more detail so that a clearer understanding of it can be achieved. THE PLACE OF LAA ILAAHA ILL Allah IN THE LIFE OF A MUSLIM - It is pronounced daily by him in: a ) The call to prayer. B ) At the beginning of their prayers © During Tashahud. (d) During times of 'Dhikr', which is before and after prayers, in the late evening and also in the early mornings. (e) With this 'Kalima' did Allah send all His Messengers. (f) About it and its obligations will people be questioned (g) To establish it when the swords of Muslims are drawn for Jihaad. (h) The first question in the grave will be about this 'Kalima'. (i) It is the key to Al-Jannah. (j) It is what the Muslims are commanded to invite to as is estbalished in the Hadeeth of Muadh when he was sent to Yemen to call the people to Islaam. The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "You are going to encounter with a people of the Book, so let the first thing you call them to is the proclamation of 'laa ilaaha ill Allah' (there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah)..." [bukhari] THE MERITS OF THE 'KALIMAH' (LAA ILAAHA ILL Allah) Abu Sa`eed al-Khudri said, that the Messenger of Allah (S) said: "Moses (AS) said: O Lord! Teach me something that I can remember You with and I can supplicate You with. He (T) said: Say 'Laa ilaaha ill Allah', O Musaa. He (Musaa) said: All of your servants say this. He (T) said: If the seven Heavens and those who dwell in them other than Me and the seven Earths are put into one pan (of the scale) and 'Laa ilaaha ill Allaah' is put into the other; 'Laa ilaaha ill Allah' would be heavier." [ibn Hibbaan and Haakim] The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "The best Dhikr (remembrance) is 'Laa ilaaha ill Allah' (There is no deity worthy of worship but Allah)..." The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "A person from my Ummah will be summoned in the presence of all creatures on the Day of Judgement. Ninety-nine records (of his deeds) would be unfolded, each extending as far as the range of the vision can stretch, then he would be asked: 'Do you deny any of these deeds?' He will reply: 'No, My Lord.' He will be asked: 'Do you have any excuse or any good deed?' The man who will be scared will say: 'No' It will be said to him: 'Yes you have some good deeds. No iniquity will befall you.' A card wll then be shown to him, on it will be written: 'Laa ilaaha ill Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah.' He will say: 'O Allah! What cards and records are these.' It will be said to him: 'No injustice shall befall you.' The (ninety-nine) records will then be placed in one pan of the scale and the card on the other. The card will then outweigh the records." [At-Tirmidhi and Al-Haakim] All of These Merits of the 'Kalimah' Are Summarized by Ibn Rajab As Follows: - Al-Jannah is its reward. - Uttering it before death will cause one to be admitted to the Jannah. - It is a refuge from the Fire of Hell. - It is a cause for a Muslim to be forgiven. - It is the best of good deeds. - It wipes out sins. - It traverses all bariers in order to be accepted by Allah, the Almighty - It is a statement whose pronouncer will be accepted by Allah. - It is the best proclamation ever uttered by the Prophets. - It is the best celebration of His praises. - It is the best of deeds and it multiplies into many good deeds. - It is a protection against Satan. - It is a safety from the darkness and the punishment of the graves and from the Day of Resurrection. - The eight doors of Paradise will be accessible to its pronuncer. - People who pronounce it will certain come out of the Fire of Hell, even after they have been cast into it for falling short of observing its obligations. Summarized from a treatise done by Dr. Saleh Al-Fouzan Adopted from HUDAA Magazine, published by Masjid Al-Istiqaamah
  9. Your Favorite Verses from the Quran

    salaam "Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe," without being put to the test?" [29:2] :sl: Ayahs 40-48 Al Haqqah 40.That this is verily the word of an honoured apostle; 41. It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! 42. Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive. 43. (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds. 44. And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name, 45. We should certainly seize him by his right hand, 46. And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: 47. Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath). 48. But verily this is a Message for the God fearing.

  14. Family That Walks On All Fours

    :D Scientists have discovered a family that walks on all fours – millions of years after its ancestors stood up and walked on two legs. Evolutionary psychologist Professor Nicholas Humphrey, one of the scientists leading the research into the family, said: "This could be hugely important – a living example of how our ancestors walked before they became bipedal. "As such, it might teach us so much about our distant past." The family is very poor, has had little medical help and lives in a small village in Turkey. The parents, who are closely related, have had 19 children. Most were normal, but six were born with what looks like brain damage. Five of these, aged between 18 and 34, walk quadrupedally. Family members are treated as outcasts by many of the villagers. The BBC was given exclusive access to the family and is to tell the extraordinary story in a documentary film to be broadcast this month. The documentary features interviews with scientists from across the world, and their response has been mixed – the only thing they do agree on is that this is not a hoax. American paleanthropologists think that the family's skeletons could hold vital clues about the origin of man. A Turkish neurophysiologist believes that they are wholesale genetic throwbacks – a living 'missing link'. But UK researchers contend that no single faulty gene could produce the first human quadrupeds the modern world has seen. Producer Jemima Harrison, of Passionate Productions, which made the film for the BBC, said: "The family raises profound questions about what it is to be human. They walk like animals and that's very disturbing at first. But we were also very moved by this family's tremendous warmth and humanity." The Family That Walks On All Fours is on BBC2 on Friday, 17 March at 9pm. short video and pictures (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_channels.aolsvc.co.uk/learning/article.adp?id=20060307100909990002&CLI=16009117&n=rotator&p=Anytime&c=welcome_screen"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_channels.aolsvc.co.uk/learning/arti...=welcome_screen[/url] (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_iararat.wordpress(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2006/02/27/reverse-evolution-this-is-bloody-weird/"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_iararat.wordpress(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2006/02/27/re...s-bloody-weird/[/url] :D
