Happy New Year 2011- with “Jannah!”

December 31, 2010

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Here is a short film entitled Jannah (the Islamic conception of paradise or heaven), a lovely and very touching visual poem by Ammar Al Shukry, produced by Belah Khan, for Leechon Films. A perfect way to greet the New Year :)

“Peace unto you for that ye persevered in patience! Now how excellent is the final home!” —  Qur’an, 13: 23-24

Camels in the Desert!

December 26, 2010

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

This is a picture taken from directly above these camels in the desert, at sunset.  It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year.  When you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black images are just their shadows!

Sometimes, our “problems” seem to be as big as the shadows…but in reality they are caused only by a slanted way of looking at things, by the absence of light.
In the coming year, let us resolve to let the True Light of God shine forth in our lives, and chase away the shadows.

Happy New Year 2011!

Ya Haqq!
