Cricket Frenzy and the Fanaticism!

Among the things that you would find hard to escape, being in the sub-continent, is the game of Cricket! The passion for the game that the people of the Indian sub-continent have is something that can only be understood by observing the people when a match is on involving the national side or players. The enthusiasm and excitement reaches a high level during the Cricket World Cup. But, over the last few days it is escalating new heights and will probably reach its zenith as India and Pakistan get ready to face each other in a Semi-Final of the undergoing Cricket World Cup!

A wise person is he who understands the difference between good and bad. But, he who when has options, chooses the better one is a successful person. When one understands the importance of choosing the good over bad and better from among the good and inculcates the habit of doing so, he will surely taste successes in this world and also in the Next, inshaAllaah.

Creation is a proof of the Creator!

Creation or created things essentially defines the existence of a Creator. Everything around us is created and primarily points out to a creator. A created thing cannot come into existence on its own. No thing is created, except that it has a creator. For example, a building; have you ever heard anyone say that there used to be a vacant plot and one day bags of cement came and it mixed and there was steel and on their own they formed a building or a tower? Or say a mobile phone or glass, does anyone say that silica and other components came and they mixed and there was this perfect temperature and pressure required to make it, and bingo, it was made on its own. It is not so! Even if someone comes up to say he witnessed any such bizarre event, then again the silica and oil are created elements.

"He governs the affairs of the various kingdoms and He commands and forbids, creates, sustains, gives death, gives life, gives power, strips power (to and from whom He will) and alternates the night and day.
