mere… Company kee ladkiyaan sunder hain Aur lonely hain…
Problem ye hai ki bus voh READ-ONLY hain…

Shayad mere pyar ko taste Karna bhool gaye…
Dil sey aisa CUT kiya ke PASTE karna bhool gaye..

Tumhare samne hain itney items
Kabhi hame bhi pick karo…
Hamare pyar ke ICON pe Kabhi to
tum DOUBLE-CLICK karo…

Roz subha hum karte hai Itne pyar se unhe good morning…
Woh humhe ghoor kar dekhte hain Jaise 0 ERRORS but 5 WARNINGS…

Ho gayi galti humse, Click ho gaya mouse
Duniya ki parwaah chhodo, ban jaao meri spouse!

Tumse mila main kal to, Mere dil mein hua ek sound,
Lekin aaj tum mili To kehti ho: Your file not found!

Ab aur kaho na tum, “but” ya “if”
Tum ho meri zindagi ki animated gif

Aysa bhi nahin hai ke, I don’t likeyour face
Par dil ke computer mein, Nahin hai enough disk space

Ghar se nikalti ho tum jab, Pehen ke evening gown
Too many requests se, Ho jaata hai server down

Tumhaare liye pyaar ki application, Create main karoonga
Tum usse debug karna, Wait main karoonga

Tumhaara intezaar karte karte, Main so gaya
Yeh dekho mera connection, Time out ho gaya

Kya chaal hai tumhaari, Jaise chalti hai koi cat
What is your ICQ number, Aao karein chat

Tum jabse meri zindagi, mein aayi ho banke female,
Yaad raha na ab kuch, Na postman , Na e-Mail

Joh sadiyaon se hota aaya hai Woh repeat kar doonga…
Tu naa mili to tujhko dil sey Ctrl+Alt+Delete kar doonga…

Humse Kya Khata Hui Ki message Aanna Band Hai…….
Aap hi humse naraz hain ya Web Server band hai…….

Badli hai duniya , kuchch mein bhi badal gaya hoon
Pahle bekaar tha ab S/W Programmer ban gaya hoon

VC aaye to VB mein daal do,
seedhe seedhe sabko museebat mein daal do

Project extend ho gaya to kya ho jaata hai?
Are Tankha milti hai aur timepass ho jata hai..

teri yaad me sanam raat bhar humne to wine piya
kabhi offline to kabhi online piya

Pyar ke sitaare jab gardish mein hote hai
Laila ghar mein aur majnoo project testing kar rahe hote

Ghusal is a means of preparing one’s self for Ibaadat (Worship of Allah). Ghusal is a necessity for a true Muslim. The importance of Ghusal has been mentioned in both the Holy Quran and in the Ahadith. The verse of the Holy Quran that commanded Ghusal as a Fardh Action was revealed in the Holy City of Makkah. Almighty Allah commands in the Holy Quran that “if you are in an impure state, then purify yourself well.” Almighty Allah is Pure and Allah loves all that which is pure. It is on the authority of Hazrat Abu Qatadah (radi Allahu anhu) that The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
said, “Cleanliness is half your Imaan.”

There are five factors that make Ghusal Fardh (obligatory) on a person. The first three that we have enlisted are for both males and females, while the last two are only for females. These are:-

  1. Wet dream causes Ghusal to become Fardh.
  2. Sexual intercourse will make Ghusal Fardh on both persons.
  3. Ejaculation caused due to lust makes Ghusal Fardh.
  4. Ghusal is Fardh on women on termination of her menstrual periods.
  5. Ghusal is also Fardh on a female after Nifaas (puerperal haemorrhage).

There are also three actions in Ghusal that are Fardh. These are:-

  1. To rinse the mouth thoroughly.
  2. To clean the nostrils thoroughly.
  3. To wash the entire body in such a manner that not even an area equal to a strand of hair be left dry. If this is not done properly, then Ghusal will not be done.

Even though one may be in a pure state, there are certain instances where it is either desirable (Mustahab) of Sunnah to make Ghusal.

It is Sunnah to perform Ghusl for the following:-

  1. For the Jummah Salaah.
  2. For Eid Salaahs.
  3. On the day of Arafaat (9th Zil-Hajj – Day of Hajj).
  4. Before tying one’s Ihraam.

It is Mustahab to perform Ghusl for the following:-

  1. When waiting in Arafaat and Muzdalifa.
  2. When visiting the Holy Haram (Kaaba).
  3. Before visiting the Blessed Tomb of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
  4. Before entering Mina.
  5. Before hitting the Jamraah.
  6. On the eve of the Birth of Holy Prophet Muhammad  (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
  7. For Lailatul Qadr.
  8. For  Lailatul Baraat.
  9. For Lailatul Me’raaj.
  10. On the eve of Eid.
  11. On the eve of Arafaah.
  12. On the eve and day of Aashurah  (10th Muharram).
  13. Before wearing new clothes.
  14. Before making Tauba (repenting) from one’s sins.
  15. For Salaatul Istisqaa.
  16. For Namaaz at the time of eclipse.
  17. Before teaching the Holy Quran and Ahadith.
  18. After bathing the deceased.
  19. After coming out of an unconscious state.
  20. Before and after a journey.
  21. After Istihaaza (Sickness of women).
  22. On recovering from illness.
  23. At the time of fear.
  24. During a storm.
  25. Before a wedding or any happy occasion.
  26. When visiting Holy Places such as Mazaars, etc.
  27. When going to meet a learned Scholar of Islam.

With the EXCEPTION of the above mentioned, it is also a good habit to bathe twice daily, in the morning on awakening and at night before going to bed.

The Sunnah method of Ghusal: One should first make Niyyah in the heart of Ghusal to gain purification from impurities. Both hands should then be washed till the wrist. The pubic areas should then be washed thoroughly removing any impurities. Impurities on any other portion of the body should be washed. One should then perform Wudhu. The entire body should then be washed thoroughly. Water must then be poured thrice over the right shoulder, then thrice over the left shoulder, thrice over the head, and then thrice over the entire body. One must make sure that the water passes over the body properly not leaving any dry spots. Thereafter, it is preferable for the feet to be washed after coming out of the bathroom. After making Ghusal in this way, one may read the Holy Quran or perform Salaah. There is no need to repeat Wudhu unless Wudhu becomes nullified (breaks). When making Ghusal, one is not allowed to read anything or talk unnecessarily.

Dear Friends! We should be clean and pure at all times, for none knows when death will come. May Almighty Allah keep us amongst the pure. Aameen.

Kerri Strug of the USA is carried off the floor by her coach Bela Karolyi after her routine at the Georgia Dome in the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia

What we love about the Olympics has actually little to do with sports and everything to do with those moments. The ones that make us cry; the one that make us scream; the ones that make us say to ourselves, “I can barely get up for a snack during the commercial, let alone train every day for 15 years straight.” How do these super-humans do it?

Here are 10 golden moments from the summer games that still make me choke up:

10. Munich, 1972: Swimmer Mark Spitz wins seven gold medals
The tragic loss of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich cast a dark pall over these games. Thankfully, Spitz was on hand to raise the spirits of Americans back home who watched the 22-year-old butterfly and freestyle his way to seven gold medals — a feat still unequaled by any other athlete in a single Olympiad. Swimming has never been as thrilling since.

9. Los Angeles, 1984: Carl Lewis makes history with four gold medals in track and field
Already a global celebrity, Lewis cemented the U.S.’s stake in track and field at these games. He began his gold-medal run by easily beating Jesse Owens’ record in the 100 M and ended the games with a fourth gold with the relay team. For the first time since Owens first graced the field at the 1936 games in Berlin, Americans saw running as an art form.

8. Seoul, 1988: Sprinter Ben Johnson is stripped of his gold medal for using steroids
This was really hard to watch. On Sept. 24, the Canadian beat Carl Lewis in the 100 M final to win gold — even declaring later that he would have been even faster had he not raised his hand in the air before the race’s end. Unfortunately, it was the traces of the steroid Stanozolol found in his system that was his downfall. He was disqualified for doping, losing the Olympic title and, even worse, the respect of millions who watched happen. Ouch.

7. Barcelona, 1992: The Dream Team dominates, well, everybody
If “Fantasy Basketball” had existed in the early 1990s, this would have been the team. The Dream Team existed in a purer time in American sports, when athletes were still heroes and we still gave a hoot about professional basketball players.

6. and 5. Montreal, 1976 and Los Angeles, 1984: Nadia Comaneci’s recording-breaking perfect 10; Mary Lou Retton becomes the first non-European gymnast to win the all-around title
At 14, Romanian prodigy Comaneci scored the first-ever 10.0 score on the uneven bars. Citing Comaneci as her inspiration, Retton was just 16 when she won the world over with her sweet smile and scored perfect 10s on floor exercise and vault to win the all-around title. Suddenly, a guy with a thick mustache named Bela Karoli became the most famous coach since Lombardi.

4. Seoul, 1988: Greg Louganis smashes his head on the diving board but rebounds to win gold
Louganis had been a favorite for two golds at the 1980 games in Moscow, but an American boycott stopped him from competing. Finally a contender in 1988, he suffered a terrible blow to the head while performing a reverse 2 1/2 pike in the prelims. Despite a concussion, he went on to ace the dive in the finals, winning the gold and the admiration of an awed global audience.

3. Atlanta, 1996: Michael Johnson shatters his own world record in the 200 M
It was the smile seen ’round the world when Johnson realized he’d just run the fastest 300 M of all time. Seems the nickname “The Man With the Golden Shoes” (for his flashy custom Nike racing spikes) was a prescient prediction of his Olympic destiny, too.

2. Los Angeles, 1984: Mary Decker (Slaney) is trampled by Zola Budd in the 3000 M
The gold medal-favorite Decker collided with South-African-born Budd at the 1700 mark, and Decker’s slight body was thrown to the ground, her hip injured beyond repair. I don’t think there was a sadder Olympic moment than the sight of her future husband, Richard Slaney, carrying a sobbing Decker from the track.

1. Atlanta, 1996: Kerri Strug lands a perfect vault on an injured ankle and makes us weep like babies
If you didn’t get at least a little choked up seeing this, you officially have no heart. Shaking out her already injured ankle, her sweet face contorted in pain, Strug limped to the end of the runway and nailed her second vault — then collapsed in agony to the mat. Carried off the mat by coach Karoli, Strug was officially her generation’s Olympic hero and star of the most winning moment ever broadcast during the summer games.
