Eid 2021 blogging party

Sheer Khurma served in clay pots in a silver tray India celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr or the “Festival of The Believers who Fast” on the auspicious day of May 14, Friday. The festival, which is celebrated by Muslims across the world, marks the end of the month of Ramadan during which people fast from dawn to sunset and worship the One Almighty God as much as they can. In India we share sweet dishes, called Sheer Khurma and Sevai, with our neighbors and friends, including non-Muslims, during the festival. While Sevai is plain vermicelli cooked in milk, Sheer Khurma is a bowl full of milk in which nuts and dry fruits have been cooked along with broken vermicelli. Today, being the third and last day of the festival, I am inviting you to this blogging party where I am sharing the treats through images. I hope you like it. While looking for a pic of Sheer Khurma to share with you, I stumbled upon a recipe of the delicacy from a Hindu girl. In the post, the girl has shared her love for the treat which she used to receive from her Muslim friend’s family. I am sharing the same with you all as we have all been created by the same Beneficent God. You will find the recipe here: https://www.cookwithmanali.com/sheer-khurma/

Earn more money with these ideas for business and passive income – Towards A Better Life

Money is King and who does not want some more of the king in their pocket. In fact, more than want earning some more cash has become  a necessity. We all need to earn some side income, especially after the rise in cost of daily living after Covid-19. This article tries to help you do that by giving  you some business ideas to earn more money.

What is Passive Income?

Passive income is money you earn that doesn’t require you to do a lot of “active” work to continue making it. In essence, you can do most of the work upfront and put some additional effort along the way to earn an income.

For example, if you create an online course, you just need to update its content to keep the money flowing.

You’ve probably heard the expression, “make money while you sleep.” That’s the biggest draw that entices people to earn passive income.

You can create something (a blog, course, ebook, videos, or an online store) that generates money even when you’re not working. Or you can make passive income investments (property or stocks) that allow you to earn passively.

But, whatever passive income you try to earn, you should always be dedicated to your job or business, which are your source of active income. I am telling you this because they are the ones that bring the bread and butter to your table.

What will happen when you are true to yourself

Why being true yourself is important

Being true to yourself is one of the best things you can do in life. It is essential if you want better and happier life for yourself. Doing so will free you from the shackles of unduly caring about what others will think in matters that are fully related to your own self and your growth. It will also help you achieve true happiness. Just remember not to hurt the feelings of others in your search for that happiness. As doing otherwise will project you as a selfish person.

Six things that will happen when you are true to yourself

The One Almighty God has created us all with unique qualities, and hence all lives matter. But, in your journey through life, a lot of things influence your personality. Society, in particular, has expectations of you and what you should aspire to be. And if you try to fit into the mold, you can easily lose your individuality in the process. You will try to do things similar to what everyone else is doing – scared of what others will think if you did them differently.

This tendency to conform is caused by the Fear of Missing Out(FOMO). It could also be because humans are social creatures, and we usually want to fit in and be liked by others. But, what would happen if you decided to embrace your individuality and become true to youself.

Being true to yourself means embracing who you are, what things make you unique, knowing what you like and dislike, what you stand for, as well as your worth. If you can’t be yourself, who else would you be? And why would you want to be anything other than yourself when your life could be so much easier and better when you are your authentic self?

The below given articles contain a few things that will happen to you once you embrace being unapologetically yourself.

Chauvin to learn black lives matter in jail; but it’s only 40 years he is facing

The US police is yet to learn that Black lives matter as seen in the recent killing of a Black man during a traffic stop. But, justice has been served in the case against the former Minneapolis officer whose actions in the death of George Floyd sparked massive protests.

Derek Chauvin, who killed Floyd last year by kneeling on his neck last year, has been convicted of all counts against him. Chauvin is facing just 40 years in prison, although it should have death or a life sentence without parole for all the pain the US suffered because of the crime he committed. According to Islamic principles, it is death for a person who kills another because not only black but all lives matter. Islam also says that the crime of a person who takes one life is as if he has killed all humans. But, sadly Chauvin is facing neither life nor the death sentence, which is given in rare cases.

However, the US police has still not understood that black lives matter as white police officer recently allegedly shot a young Black motorist to death during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb.

The fatal shooting of Daunte Wright triggered three nights of protests and civil unrest.

Minnesota  authorities have charged with second-degree manslaughter Kim Potter, the Brooklyn Center police officer who was arrested on April 14 for killing 20-year-old Wright during an April 11 traffic stop.

The incident occurred amid the trial of Chauvin.

The maximum sentence he could get is 40 years for second-degree unintentional murder, 25 years for third-degree murder and 10 years for second-degree manslaughter. Those sentences would likely be served concurrently, not consecutively, since they are all for the same crime.

The judge in the trial canceled his bail and said Chauvin would be sentenced in eight weeks.

Black Lives Matter: When will US police understand?

Looks like the US police will never understand that Black lives matter, even after what the country went through following the 2020 murder of George Floyd.

A white police officer has now been taken into custody for shooting a young Black motorist to death during a traffic stop in a Minneapolis suburb.

The fatal shooting of Daunte Wright triggered three nights of protests and civil unrest.

Minnesota  authorities have charged with second-degree manslaughter Kim Potter, the Brooklyn Center police officer who was arrested on April 14 for killing 20-year-old Wright during an April 11 traffic stop.

The incident occurred amid the ongoing trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, who was last year charged with murder and manslaughter in the May 2020 death of Floyd.

Potter, a 26-year veteran of the police department, resigned from her post on Tuesday after Wright’s death sparked protests. Police Chief Tim Gannon also tendered his resignation Tuesday, after telling reporters one day earlier that Potter appeared to have mistaken her gun for her Taser during the traffic stop.

Gannon has said police video shows Potter apparently drew her hand gun instead of her Taser by mistake when she opened fire on Wright, after he broke away from a fellow officer and climbed back into his car.

Wright’s family members and their lawyer have rejected that notion that an accident was to blame for Wright’s death.

The Washington County Attorney’s Office said Potter was acting as her partner’s field training officer at the time of the shooting.

“Certain occupations carry an immense responsibility and none more so than a sworn police officer,” Imran Ali, assistantcriminal division chief and director of the major crimes unit for the County Attorney’s Office, said in the statement.

“We will vigorously prosecute this case and intend to prov ethat Officer Potter abrogated her responsibility to protect the public when she used her firearm rather than her Taser,” he said. “Her action caused the unlawful killing of Mr. Wright, and she must be held accountable.”

Wright was shot on Sunday after being pulled over for an expired automobile registration, and officers discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest, according to the official police account of the confrontation.

In police video of the incident, Potter can be heardshouting, “Holy shit, I just shot him,” after she fires a singleshot that struck Wright in the chest.

To convict Potter of second-degree manslaughter under Minnesota law, prosecutors must show that she was “culpably negligent” and took an “unreasonable risk” in her actions against Wright. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Lawyer Benjamin Crump, who represents Wright’s family, stated that the charge fell short of meeting a greater need for police reform in the United States.

Crump said, “While we appreciate that the district attorney is pursuing justice for Daunte, no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back. This was no accident. This was an intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force. Driving while Black continues to result in a death sentence.”

Ramzan blogging party

Ramzan Mubarak to all, irrespective of religion. I love you all as my own.

The month of fasting once again brings us closer to the Almighty God and each other through caring and sharing. God revealed a part of the Holy Quran to Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) for the first time in the month of Ramzan and so Muslims all over the world celebrate the anniversary of that event in this month. Besides the many health benefits it carries, the fasting makes us feel the pain of those who don’t even have food to eat. We also pay the Zakat (compulsory poor due) in the month of Ramzan to help the less privileged fulfill the basic needs of life.

The fasting

We all know that fasting is best cleanser for our systems. But, besides the many health benefits it carries, the fasting makes us feel the pain of those who don’t even have food to eat. A day of fasting can have a positive effect on our body, mind, and spirit. Just think how much benefit a month of fasting would bring. What has amazed me over the years is that there are non-Muslims who give value to the fasting part of this Holy month and fast for at least a day or two. Muslims also get together with their friends from other religions and host an Iftar party where we forget all differences and break our fasts. May God bless us all with Peace and good understanding.

Five times a day prayers

Even Muslims who find it hard to say their five times a day compulsory prayer offer those prayers in this month to achieve closeness with God because these prayers are a pre-requisite to the acceptance of our fasts. Moreover, God promises to increase the reward of every good deed we do in the month of Ramazan as compared to that if it was done in some other month.

One of the most important part of the Muslim prayers is the Surah Fateha which starts with the words Alhamdolillahe Rabbil alamin (Praise be to Allah the Lord of the worlds). It is noteworthy that we say Lord of the worlds and not just Muslims, as we all have been created by the same God who belongs to all of us, irrespective of race and religion.

Zakat

As a pillar of Islam, zakat is a form of obligatory charity that has the potential to ease the suffering of millions. With the literal meaning of the word being ‘to cleanse,’ Muslims believe that paying zakat purifies, increases and blesses the remainder of their wealth.

Let us take care of each other, especially the poor, and also pray for each other’s welfare. May Allah take better care of you and your family. May He also gives us a permanent solution to the Covid-19 pandemic.

I wish I could host an Iftar party for you all, but think of this blog party as the same where instead of food I invite you to share your comments.

Covid-19 should not stop us from dealing with another key issue: Climate change – Towards A Better Life

 

Covid-19 started in 2020 and does not seem to end soon. The problems it has created also seem to have taken away our attention from climate change, which is another major issue that is affecting our heath.

However, that should not happen because even after we have found a solid solution for the pandemic, climate change will remain.

What can you do?

Most of us are not scientists to deal with climate change, but you can still do something at your level to control it. I believe that doing at least the following two things can help.

1) Shut down that AC: That is what I tell my son who loves switching the air-conditioner on whenever he feels hot. Honestly, I just do it to cut down my power bills. But, I also think that it is not only my child but also other people who put on the AC when they feel hot without knowing that doing so also increases global warming. It is like a cycle. Actually, ACs consume large amounts of electricity, and the fluorocarbons they use as refrigerants deplete the ozone layer and contribute to global warming. So please, shut down the AC and if you can’t do that at least limit its use.
2) Let your computer sleep or close the monitor: Apart from limiting your use of the AC and electricity you should always shut down the monitor whenever you take a break while working. I am saying this as allowing the monitor to remain on and not putting your computer on sleep mode can also contribute to global warming. I always close my monitor even if I have to go to the washroom.

Here are two articles I have curated on the subject that should increase your knowledge about climate change and help you deal with it in your daily lives.
