Morgan does it for England

That man Morgan is back again. He has just won a match for England against the Mighty Australians. A middle order century from Morgan does it for England. Excellent innings by him.


Pakistan has to do something about him.

How Eric Came to Islam

From one of my favorite shows on the internet 'The Deen Show' (www.thedeenshow.com)

Why is Music Haraam?

Music has been condemned strongly in the Quraan and Hadith.

In Surah Luqmaan, Allah Taala states,

And from mankind are those that purchase futile speech in order to mislead others from the path of Allah. Under the commentary of this verse, ibn Abbaas [Radhiallaahu anhu] states, 'futile speech' refers to music and things related to it. (Durrul Manthoor vol.5 pg.307).

Nabi [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] mentions,

'There will be people from my Ummah who will seek to make lawful fornication, wearing of silk, wine and the use of musical instruments.' (Bukhaari vol.2 pg.837).

Rasulullah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] states,

'A group of my Ummah will drink wine calling it by other than its real name. merry will be made for them through the playing of musical instruments and by the singing of females. Allah will cleave the earth under them and turn them into apes and swines.' (Abu Dawud vol.2 pg.519)

Rasulullah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] further mentions,
'Music grows hypocrisy in the heart just as water causes crops to grow.' (Bayhaqi vol.10 pg.222).

Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Below is an excerpt from a Fatwa from Shaikh Baz. This is for some of my Arab friends who have more respect for Shaikh Baz (May Allah shower HIS blessings on him).

Woman Developing Seizures Because of Music

Recently a lady found that she was developing a medical condition (epileptic seizures) by listening to a certain kind of music. When she discussed the same with her doctors, they would not believe it, but on experimentation they were convinced and hence were able to cure it.


It seems that musical notes and medical conditions is something which has not been looked into by researchers. Who knows how many other medical conditions result because of Musical Instruments and Music.

Alhamdolillah music and musical instruments were banned in Islam 1400 years ago. They are totally haraam as per the Quran and the Prophetic Injuctions.


Just another one of those things which medical science is finding out today, what we knew, courtesy our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) since more than 14 centuries.

Maciano - Amazing Goal

Knock, knock
Who's there
Maciano who?
Well I don't know either, but he scored an amazing goal against Korea in FIFA World 2010. Check below.

Exchange 2007 Remote Wipe Feature

Knock Knock
Who's there?
My Mobile just got stolen.
My confidential contacts were in it. I am afraid, our competitors will find out our customer information and try to steal them!

Well if you ever come across such a case, then keep in mind that if your users are on Exchange 2007 and their mobile devices are synching data from the Exchange server, you use 'Exchange 2007 Remote Wipe' feature, to wipe out all contacts from a device remotely.

Found it intereseting to share. More about it later...

Best Afridi Innings

Knock Knock. Who's there. Its Afridi, Pakistan's test captain (yes I know it sounds funny) and he is here to stay.

Well I have been following Afridi's career since his first international one day innings. I have seen decimate opposition's bowling by scoring some of the fastest centuries human eyes have ever seen. But his recent century against Srilanka, has been 'the' best of Afridi centuries and one of the best from any batsmen.

Being 4 down, he promoted himself ahead of some of the reliable names like Akmal brothers and Razzaq. Immediately he took the attack to the opposition by two towering sixes.

But it was not all about bashing the ball around. He took a high percentage of singles and doubles. Some of the highlights were his towering sixes against the best off spinner in the world. Battling cramps and back aches, but not calling for a runner.

Too bad it was a century which went in vain, as we lost the match. But Afridi's mature innings, is what Pakistan needed to see from Pakistan's latest Test, One Day and Twenty20 captain. We needed to know that Afridi can be a mature person, since that is what is required from a test batsman and a test captain. Test cricket, which is infact real cricket.

Keep it up Pakistan.

Salman Butt drops a sitter, so whats new?

Knock Knock, who's there?
"Salman Butt's brain"
"Oh, so where is Salman Butt then?"

I am a huge fan of Butt's batting, but his catching. My God that is horrible. And I think the only solution is that our very own Samir Bhai has a one-on-one session with him. Samir Bhai is the only fielder I have seen that don't drop catches. Well how can you drop a catch, when you don't even attempt! So the only solution for Salman Butt is to stop attempting catches. When you don't attempt you don't drop.

Well Ahsan, in CricInfo commentary sums it up quite well.

Ahsan: "Butt can't catch anything that is in the air. Not even flu!"

FIFA 2010 - Germany Looking Good

Knock Knock, who is there? FIFA World Cup 2010.

Well even if you are not a huge football fan, you can't escape the FIFA world cup fever. One way or the other you tend to get caught up in it. Well I had caught it as well. And like every Pakistani, Brazil is the team I support. I don't see any link, but they look to be a country much like Pakistan. Out of all difficulties they have a team competing quite well in a major world event.

Anyways, I saw the German nailing of Australia (highlights only), and it looks that German have brought in a pretty decent team. They look nicely polished and are the most calm team inside the striking area. Their strikers are not rushing things up and always finding fellow strikers close by. I haven't seen Brazil, Portugal as yet, but Germany seems to have the best team as yet.

Shoaib Akhtar is back

Knock knock, who's there? Shoaib Akhtar. Yep he is back. Huffing and puffing, but he is there. That aggressive run up is now replaced by a limping one, but few traces of pace are still there. Bowling quite impressively, and has a wicket as well.

We love him and we hate him, but whatever we say or do, we do watch him. Hope he bodes well for Pakistan cricket.
