Aman Palestin: FREE PALESTINE SAVE GAZA!!! Contribute Now!


 

Who is Aman Palestin

The establishment of the illegal State of Israel 0n 15 May, 1948 on Palestine soil 65 years ago has invited major catastrophe where the world has to witness the cruelty of the Zionist regime who kept on unleashing battle upon battle that resulted in the death of thousands of Palestine citizens who fell as martyrs, while making million others flee to safety as refugees only to face unemployment problems and suffer losing certain body limbs. Children were made orphans and wives were made widows for losing fathers and husbands who fell defending their beloved homeland from violation and colonization.
 
The on-going misery suffered by the Palestinians somehow conjured up a kind of consciousness in all Muslims around the world to offer a hand in assistance.
 
Hence Aman Palestin, as an initiative towards achieving peace in Palestine, operates on 3 main bases:
  1. Humanity
  2. Brotherhood
  3. The sanctity of Bait al-Maqdis
Aman Palestin provides continuous emergency, humanitarian and welfare assistance to the Palestinian people until completion.

"Orang Mawas" - Bigfoot in Malaysia

 


Bigfoot or Orang Mawas  reported to inhabit the jungle of Johor in Malaysia. It is described as being about 10 ft tall, bipedal and covered in black fur, and has been reported feeding on fish and raiding orchards. Mawas is another name for "Orang Utan".

Bigfoot have became hot story twice in 2013,

Jun, 2013

About 200 Bigfoot-like footprints have been reportedly discovered near Kampung Kepis Baru, Kuala Pilah, Malaysia, causing panic among villagers.

According to Harian Metro reports, a villager named Adnan Pungut, has claimed that he discovered the footprints when he was clearing rubbish and wood at his rubber estate at around 3pm on Saturday.
Pungut said that he immediately informed other villagers and they found 200 footprints that were about the same size, Star online reported.

Based on the footprints, they assumed that the creature has two legs and weighs more than 100kg, he added.

Dec, 2013

Liew Tze Chong, 58, villagers of Kg Gudang Garam found giant  footprints measuring 30cm long and 15cm wide each. He discovered the footprints when he went to his farm at 8.30am.

The Johor Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), when contacted by Berita Harian reporter, did not rule out the possibility that the footprints could be that of Bigfoot's.

MNS chairman Vincent Chow said although he had yet to examine the footprints, he believed the creature exists as previously reported.

"Based on my extensive research, there is evidence to show that Bigfoot is not a myth.

"I would like to work with the local community on this so that we can conduct a more in-depth study on Bigfoot," he added.

Meanwhile, Segamat district police chief Supt Mohd Kamil Sukarmi said he has yet to receive any report on the discovery of the footprint.


In 2005, when the New Straits Times broke the story of a large footprint found in the Endau Rompin National Park, it drew an entourage of foreign journalists and researchers to Johor.

Many villagers, including the Orang Asli community reportedly claimed they had spotted the creature whom they called "Hantu Jarang Gigi"  in the national park and the forests of Tanjung Piai, Mersing, Kahang and Kota Tinggi. Some even claimed they saw the Bigfoot family.

Some members of the local community reportedly made a lucrative income from taking the foreigners into the jungles, and acting as their trekking guides.



 
 
 
 
 Are they member of Planet of The Apes?
 


P/S: You also can ask DAP's Karpal Singh's about the bigfoot in Kinabatangan, Sabah.

BookUp: Save money on your college textbook!

Used text book
Used Text Books



One major hidden expense of going to university or college is paying for textbooks. Most people do not realize that a full course load worth of brand new textbooks from the campus bookstore can easily run over a thousand dollars! ...but at the end, the textbooks just sitting on their shelf collecting dust. For this problem,  BookUp has solution for you.


What is BookUp?
BookUp, is dedicated to help students and book readers to sell their textbooks or books AND also to allow people to purchase used books at lower price.






Why BookUp?


 As a student once, one of the challenge is having too many unwanted textbooks at the end of every semester during our college or university years. Plus the fact that many avid readers have too many books sitting on their shelf collecting dust. We could not bear to witness so many good books being sent to the recycling center or dumpsite. That is how this humble idea came out and started this project to solve the problem. At BookUp value books a lot!

 

Who are in this project?

This project is started by two young people, named Mike Chu and Jacqueline Khoo. Both graduated and worked in their respective career path for some time. It is because of the love of books that both of them decided to quit their job and dedicated months to start this project to help students and book readers. 


How BookUp works?

BookUp allows people to sell their books and buy used books through few simple steps:

To buy books: Once buyer identified the books that they wanted to buy, they just have to complete the payment. Books will then be sent to them. http://bookup.my/showall

To sell books: Sellers will only need to go through this three simple steps  >>  http://bookup.my/sell-books-online

Where they are?

BookUp is currently based in Ipoh, Perak and still in the process of expansion to other states. Starting from January 2014, we will be going around to universities and colleges to engage with students. And for your information, USM will be our first stop.


How to contact them?

If you interested with this project or to engage with them. They can be contacted via email: mybookup@gmail.com  OR Jacqueline : jacq@bookup.my

Why You Should Invest

Investing has become increasingly important over the years, as the future of social security benefits becomes unknown.

People want to insure their futures, and they know that if they are depending on Social Security benefits, and in some cases retirement plans, that they may be in for a rude awakening when they no longer have the ability to earn a steady income. Investing is the answer to the unknowns of the future.

You may have been saving money in a low interest savings account over the years. Now, you want to see that money grow at a faster pace. Perhaps you’ve inherited money or realized some other type of windfall, and you need a way to make that money grow. Again, investing is the answer.

Investing is also a way of attaining the things that you want, such as a new home, a college education for your children, or expensive ‘toys.’ Of course, your financial goals will determine what type of investing you do.

If you want or need to make a lot of money fast, you would be more interested in higher risk investing, which will give you a larger return in a shorter amount of time. If you are saving for something in the far off future, such as retirement, you would want to make safer investments that grow over a longer period of time.

The overall purpose in investing is to create wealth and security, over a period of time. It is important to remember that you will not always be able to earn an income… you will eventually want to retire.

You also cannot count on the social security system to do what you expect it to do. As we have seen with Enron, you also cannot necessarily depend on your company’s retirement plan either. So, again, investing is the key to insuring your own financial future, but you must make smart investments!

What Islam Says On Manners And Dealing With Others





 “And when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with ‘Salamaa’ (peaceful words of gentleness).” (Qur’an, 25:63)

"O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: It may be that the (latter are better than the (former): Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.  (The Noble Quran, 49:11)"

"It is part of the Mercy of Allah that thou dost deal gently with them.  Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee: so pass over (their faults), and ask for (Allah's) forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then, when thou hast taken a decision, put thy trust in Allah. For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).  (The Noble Quran, 3:159)"

"Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good.   (The Noble Quran, 3:134)"

"Hold to forgiveness; command what is right; but turn away from the ignorant.  (The Noble Quran, 7:199)"


"Say to My servants that they should (only) say those things that are best: for Satan doth sow dissensions among them: for Satan is to man an avowed enemy.  (The Noble Quran, 17:53)"

"Who avoid vain talk;  (The Noble Quran, 23:3)"

"And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: 'To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.'   (The Noble Quran, 28:55)"

`A’ishah (ra) narrated that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “The most hated person with Allah is the most quarrelsome person.” (al-Bukhari)

 Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (ra) narrated, “I asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ about what saves me from Allah’s wrath, and he said, “Do not become angry.” (al-Tabarani and Ibn Abdul Barr) Ibn `Umar, Ibn Mas’ud, and Abu Darda’ (ra) relate similar conversations on their own behalf.
Ibn ‘Abbas (ra) narrated, the Messenger of Allah said, “And when you get angry, keep silent.” (Ahmad, Ibn Abi Dunya, al-Tabarani, and al-Bayhaqi)

The son of Abu Said al-Khudri reported on the authority of his father that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: "When one of you yawns, he should keep his mouth shut with the help of his hand, for it is the devil that enters therein.  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book Pertaining to Piety and Softening of Hearts (Kitab Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa'iq), Book 042, Number 7130)" 

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Anger is a burning coal. It burns in the heart.” (al-Tirmidhi and al-Bayhaqi)

Abu Darda (RA) reported that Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Nothing is weightier on the Scale of Deeds than one’s good manners.”(Al-Bukhari)

Abu Hurairah (RA) said, “I heard Abu al Qasim (Rasulullah (SAW)), say, ‘The best among you in Islam are those with the best manners, so long as they develop a sense of understanding.” (Al-Bukhari)

Rasulullah (SAW) said: “The most beloved of Allah’s servants to Allah are those with the best manners.” (At-Tabarâni and Albani authenticated it in Silsilatul-AHaadeethis-Saheehah

Abd Allah ibn ‘Amr said, “Rasulullah (SAW) was never obscene or coarse. Rather, he used to tell us that the best among us were those with the best manners.” (Al-Bukhari)

Anas (RA) said, “I served Rasulullah (SAW) for ten years. During that time, he never once said to me as much as ‘Oof’ if I did something wrong. He never asked me, if I had failed to do something, ‘Why did you not do it?,’ and he never said to me, if I had done something wrong, ‘Why did you do it?” (Al-Bukhari)

Abu Hurairah (RA) said that Rasulullah (SAW) said, “If one has good manners, one may attain the same level of merit as those who spend their nights in prayer.” (Al-Bukhari)

Abu Hurairah reported that Rasulullah (SAW) said, “And what is most likely to send people to Paradise? Being conscious of Allah and good manners.” (Al-Bukhari)

Nawas ibn Sam’an reported that Rasulullah (SAW) was asked about doing good and evil. He replied, “Doing good is having good manners. Doing evil is what troubles you inside and what you would not like others to know about.” (Al-Bukhari)

Rasulullah (SAW) said, “He who does not show mercy to our young or show esteem for our elders is not one of us.” (Al-Bukhari)

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Richness does not lie in the abundance of (worldly) goods, but richness is the richness of the soul (heart, self).”
