Women in the Quran and the Sunnah


In Islam there is absolutely no difference between men and women as far as their relationship to Allah is concerned, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct.

The Quran says:

“And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women.”

[Noble Quran 2:228]

The Quran, in addressing the believers, often uses the expression, ‘believing men and women’ to emphasize the equality of men and women in regard to their respective duties, rights, virtues and merits. It says:

“For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men…

The Web Storms Into English Grammar

Lingua Franca

As a flashback of our elementary school days, we remember that a preposition is a word which precedes a noun (or a pronoun) to show the noun’s (or the pronoun’s) relationship to another word in the sentence. The word preposition comes from the idea of being positioned before. (It is not true to say that a preposition always precedes a noun or a pronoun, but it does most of the time.)

Examples of prepositions are:  above, about, across, against, along, among, around, at, before, behind, below, beneath, beside, between, beyond, by, down, during, except, for, from, in, inside, into, like, near, of, off, on, since, to, toward, through, under, until, up, upon, with and within.

For years prepositions remained more or less the same, so it was easy to remember their usage in everyday English communication.  Then some wise guy invented the Internet, and grammar began to change its…

NaBloPoMo “My Mom’s famous Kebab” Ranu’s post https://sabethville.wordpress.com

My Mom was a very good cook. Anything she cooked was amazing. We all loved to eat. We seldom asked  how she turned out these delicious meals. I watched  when she cooked.  It looked so easy. I thought I can do this too. The ingredients she used were, slices of beef ,same size potatoes, onions were sliced thin,the tomatoes were thin slices too. In addition she used whole dry peppers,peppercorn and cinnamon sticks,there were whole cloves,salt,yoghurt and oil or clarified butter.

She used a round pot for this amazing dish. She had the ingredients in separate bowls. The layering of these ingredients was carefully done. she put a tablespoon of oil or clarified butter in the pot and spread it evenly. She carefully laid the beef ,followed  by three or four dry red peppers, a few peppercorns, some cloves,salt, and one or two half inch cinnamon sticks. Then  potatoes were layered on top making sure they covered the meat, onions went on top and tomatoes on the top layer. On each layer the oil and the yoghurt mixed with ground ginger,garlic ground cumin and ground coriander was spread as well. If she had some ingredients left, she’d repeat the layering. When everything was neatly in the pot, she put the cover on.

It was put on a charcoal stove, to give it the effect of an oven,she put hot charcoal on the cover. It took about an hour. When the lid was taken off,the aroma made us rush to the dining room. We didn’t need any bells!

One-story bungalow with painted trim, earth-tone shingles. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The luxury item I want,is a bungalow. I live in a two storey house.It is all right. It is a problem when I want something,not on the same floor.

To me a bungalow is very convenient. All the rooms are on the same floor. The kitchen is spacious. There are plenty of cupboards for everything.

The living room has comfortable space. I like a fire place .In winter it adds to the beauty. All of us can enjoy it.

Three bedrooms is perfect.They should have en-suite bath ,a powder room and a walk in closet.

A veranda is awesome to have but not practical. The snow in winter will fill the space. A  porch is fine.

The bungalow will be surrounded by trees. The front will have a garden.The land at the back can be used to grow vegetables.

This is what I’d love to have!
