  • THE DESIGN OF THE WOODPECKER
    As we all know, woodpeckers build their nests by boring holes in tree trunks with their beaks. This may sound familiar to most people. But the point many people fail to examine is why woodpeckers suffer no brain haemorrhage when they beat a tattoo so vigorously with their heads. What the woodpecker does is in a way similar to a human being driving a nail into the wall with his head. If a man ventured to do something like that, he would probably undergo a brain shock followed by a brain haemorrhage. However, a woodpecker can peck a hard tree trunk 38-43 times in just two or three seconds and nothing happens to it.(1)   Nothing happens because the head structure of woodpeckers is ideally created for such a task. The skull of the woodpecker has a remarkable suspension system that absorbs the force of the blows. Its forehead and some skull...

  • Daily Anti-Depressant
    Many people are under the misconception that an increase in wealth will lead to an increase in happiness. However, this could not be further from the truth, as depression affects people across all income-brackets and from all walks of life. The severity of depression can perhaps be gauged by the fact that according to statistics, in South Africa alone, there are approximately twenty-three known suicides a day! Islam has given us a simple, free prescription that has no unwanted side effects and is incomparable in combating depression. In this regard, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught us that we should always look at those who are less fortunate than ourselves (Saheeh Muslim #7428). In doing so, we will realize how many bounties we enjoy for which we should be thankful and how fortunate we really are. Hence, we...

  • Why we need good friends..
    A well know Arabic saying advises, “Don’t talk about a person. Ask about his companions.” This simply means that if you want to enquire about a person — about his character, what are his habits, is he responsible, etc., then do not enquire specifically about him. Instead enquire about the company he keeps. If he keeps good company, insha-Allah he will be likewise a good and upright person. On the contrary if he remains in the company of people accustomed to sin and vice or people of low character and morals, he will generally be judged accordingly. Musk Seller Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has emphasized upon us to always maintain good company. He is reported to have said: “A person follows the way of his friend, therefore beware of who you befriend!” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4833) In another hadeeth a good friend...

Genocidal anti-Muslim racism

Local

 

By Izeth Hussain

 

Suddenly, and quite unexpectedly, the term "racism" has come into vogue. I myself have been using it for years, in preference to the term "ethnic" in connection with our famous ethnic problem. But otherwise it has been normally used in Sri Lanka only to allege "Tamil racism", the assumption behind which is that the Sinhalese of course have never been racist towards the Tamils, or towards anyone else for that matter. But now, in connection with the anti-Muslim hate campaign and the halal problem, - which involve Buddhist monks and a political party that is part of the Government - many including no less than the President have used the term "racism". There is therefore recognition among the Sinhalese power elite that there could be racists within their own ranks. I see this as a step or even a great leap forward, the beginnings of a possible sea-change, holding out promise for the future.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) expresses its deep concern and strongly condemns the unwarranted attacks against the Muslim Business establishments and threatening the security and business interests of the Muslim community by some extremist groups.

Further, these extremist elements have gone to the extent of misquoting and misinterpreting our holy Quran.  They are also inciting violence against the Muslim community through blatant lies.

The Muslims of Sri Lanka have stood shoulder to shoulder with the Sinhala community against all threats from internal and external forces in upholding the sovereignty of Sri Lanka,

As such, we call upon the Government and the Secretary Defense to take immediate action against all groups perpetrating extremism and violence without prejudice and to ensure the maintenance of law and order.
