A man should love God above all things Prophet Abraham showed that

On this Father’s Day, I am writing this post in honor of Prophet Abraham. He is the patriarch of all three religions: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, and his love for God is well know. He was tested by the Creator in various ways.

The supreme sacrifice and other tests that Prophet Abraham gave

From the time he was a child, Abraham was devoted to the One Almighty God and no one else. That prompted his own people, who were non-believers, to put Abraham into a fire, when he was just a child. There also came a time when Abraham, who is called Ibrahim (peace be upon him) in Islam, became old and God wanted him to sacrifice the one thing he loved the most. That one thing turned out to be his son Ismael, who was Abraham’s only child at that time.

That was the final test and supreme sacrifice of Abraham, who is also known as the Friend of God in Islam. A final test is considered to be the greatest test, and Abraham passed in that test too.

His child is the most precious thing to a man

I want to stress the point here that Prophet Abraham loved God above all things, because for a man his child is indeed the most precious thing. In fact, a true father loves his child more than he loves himself and above all treasures of the world. Abraham had proved his devotion to God by getting ready to be burnt in the fire. But, the Creator finally tested his dedication by testing his love for his child.

Finally, it was the mercy of God that saved the life of Ismael. The Beneficent One sent a lamb from heaven to be sacrificed in his place.

But, the love for God should be above all things

In all this Prophet Abraham showed that a man loves his child above all things, but that love should not surpass the love for the Almighty One. I believe that a mother carries a child in herself for nine months, but a father carries him in his heart for life. But, the love for God should be above all things. That is all I want to say on this Father’s Day.

And in these times of Covid-19, the most important is that we should reinforce our love and faith in the One Almighty God and put all our trust in Him.

How to prevent car theft after 3 teens charged for such crimes in Madison – Better Life Info

 

Being in the media industry (I edit legal news online), I often come across news where people are arrested or charged for stealing from vehicles. I ended my day’s work on June 16 with just that kind of news in which Fitchburg police announced the arrest of three suspects in a series of crimes including vehicle thefts, burglaries and financial offenses.

I immediately thought about sharing some tips and a video that will show you how to stop people from stealing your car or even items from it. After all we work so hard for our families and not for thieves.

Coming back to the news that inspired me to share the video, the three suspects arrested on June 10, 2021 were all teenagers.

Lt. Edward Hartwick said three adolescents suspected of being involved in a recent crime spree were seen entering the home on Madison’s west side.

After leaving the house, two 15-year-old boys and a 17-year-old boy were arrested, and a car reported stolen earlier in the day from Madison was located nearby, according to Hartwick.

The 15-year-olds were wanted for a robbery in Fitchburg on June 6 in which a 14-year-old girl was shot in the head with a revolver.

They were arrested and brought to the Dane County Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of armed robbery. According to Hartwick, one of them was on electronic monitoring from past juvenile trials.

The 17-year-old, identified as Marquan Webb, has been charged with robbery, criminal theft, and misuse of personal identifying information, according to Hartwick.

With so many people sadly becoming jobless after Covid-19, I think there is nothing better left for people than steal from others. Due to this, I believe that such crimes are on the rise more than ever before.

How to 100% theft-proof your vehicle

As I told you above, after much research, I have got a video for you in which you will learn how to stop such crimes from happening with, and adversely affecting you. The video called “How to 100% Theft-Proof Your Car!” shows you several ways that will help you prevent thieves from stealing from your vehicle or things from it. After all nobody wants criminals to have fun on their hard earned money. And prevention is always better than cure (which in such cases you may think is reporting the crime to police).

Keeping Your Car Safe: Tips for Preventing Auto Theft

  1. Never Leave Valuables in Your Vehicle.
  2. Lock Your Car Doors.
  3. Remove Your Keys from the Vehicle.
  4. Do Not Leave a Spare Key Near Your Vehicle.
  5. Close the Windows.
  6. Park in Well-Lit Areas.
  7. Install an Audible Alarm System and Anti-Theft Device. .
  8. Install a Vehicle Immobilizer System.
  9. Install a Tracking System.

You only live once; dont kill yourself like Sushant

You only live once; don't kill yourself

Today was June 14, 2021, which was just another day for most of us in the world. But, a rising star died just a year ago in Mumbai, India. Sushant Singh Rajput, who was born on January 21, 1986, in Patna, Bihar, India, committed suicide by hanging on June 14, last year. If for nothing else, Sushant will always be remembered for M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, a biopic based on the life story of former Indian cricket captain MS Dhoni.

Sushant Singh Rajput from TV to rising Bollywood star

He was a Bollywood star who had acted in many Indian movies, including Dil Bechara, his last one. After starting his career as a television actor, Sushant had become a a rising star of the Indian film industry. He had gathered so much wealth in just a small lifetime (Sushant was 34 at the time of his death), that he had even bought a part of land on the moon. But, all this proved to be of no use as he killed himself in his own home. Perhaps money can buy anything but not peace of mind and strong faith in the One Almighty God. I am mentioning strong faith in God because it is that which keeps a believer going in spite of all the troubles and challenges of life.

Sushant’s death shocked the country, left his loved ones in pain

I and many others in India will remember that fateful day, as we were all shocked after hearing news about Sushant’s death. It was initially even investigated as a murder. We were even shocked because Sushant had more than everything a common man would want.


Many continue to believe that Sushant was killed due to rivalry in the field he had become an rising star, without being a son of a popular actor or having a godfather. But, the Wikipedia says the death was suicide by hanging. I myself became sad after hearing that and still am as no person should kill himself come what may in life. Our Creator has sent us down on this earth to serve Him and take care of those who love us, especially our families. Our parents did not take all the pain they did in raising us for us to kill ourselves. And Sushant left behind an old father and other family members who loved him not for his star status, but only because he was their own.

Sushant belonged to a Rajput family. His mother died in 2002 of a brain hemorrhage and his father K.K. Singh is a retired government employee. And the most painful thing for a man is when his beloved son dies when the man is still alive. Sushant also had four elder sisters who will cry for him whenever the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan, in which a sister ties a thread of love on her brother’s hand, comes.

Although the Wikipedia says that the cause of Sushant’s death was suicide by hanging, there are people who still believe that he was murdered.

Whatever, the case may be I believe that even if he had committed suicide it was only because he was pushed to the point of doing it by the so-called bosses of the Indian film industry.

I have just received a valuable comment on the topic from a blogging friend, Indira, who said, “Sushant didn’t kill himself. He was brutally murdered. CBI is still working on various options, no angle is left out. A brilliant star with heart of gold paid heavily for his faith in friends and some others.”

How to get a good night’s sleep – Better Life Info

We all work hard to fulfill the basic needs of and create a better future for our families. After a day filled with hard work and stress, all we need is a good night’s sleep.

Dalai Lama says that

Sleep is the best meditation

But a sound sleep is something that is hard to find these days, especially after Covid-19 and the other issues we are facing.

Some of the best ways to achieve a good night’s sleep is to avoid napping in the evening, if you can. You should also follow regular sleep schedule and avoid drinking tea or coffee in the night. It is best to sip camomile tea, if you ever want to have the beverage at night.

Tap on the slide-show below to find out several other ways to achieve a refreshing and relaxing sleep this weekend.

The support of a mother benefits a child throughout life – Better Life Info

A mother is a person who a child knows even before it is born. In fact, she is the first school that a man learns from. Here is an article that shows what a woman’s support does for her child throughout his life.

 

A mother deeply influences the life of a child. A woman has a deep influence on the life of her children, from the moment they are born. In a study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, psychologists look at how woman can alter her child’s life trajectory, building on the notion that child-mother interactions influence one’s early years.

 

Three important consequences emerged, each enhanced by the loving support of a mother.A woman is always supportive towards to her children and even if she is a beautiful swan, as seen in the picture. In fact, she is the most beautiful person in the world.

Here is a short film whose Director/Producer Meir Kay says “Nothing in the world is as powerful than a mother’s love for her child. A connection so strong and special it can do miraculous things.”Mr Kay also says, “I came across a story concerning Edison and his mother, but further investigation lead me to believe that such a story never took place and so I adapted it accordingly. The truth still remains that nothing can replace a mother’s love. I’d like to dedicate this video to my mother who’s unconditional love and support has driven me to be the man I am today.”

The master key to success: Neverrr giving up on yourself

The photo shows a chess board with a king who has won against all odds

All of us want to succeed, despite of all the hurdles that come in our way. But, which is the key that finally opens the door to success. I believe that the key is never giving up on yourself, in spite of all the wrong cards you might have got when you sat down to play this game called life.

No I am not asking you to play recklessly without calculating the risks that lie in your way. I am just advising you as a friend to believe in yourself and develop that internal strength called resilience to come what may.

Resilience is as important as tech, and other know-how

Many people today may think that knowledge is a top key to success. And that I agree is true. But, I believe that it is resilience that has helped many become top business people and masters in their fields, including that of technology. In fact, resilience is something that is just as important as tech know-how.

Finally, it may be the only thing required for you to move towards a better life, even after all the bad things that might have happened with you so far.

You may think why I have selected a chessboard as my featured image. Well let me tell you the story behind it. One year ago, my 11-year-old son, Ibrahim Kazi, started playing chess. Ibrahim lost a lot initially as happens in all sports and games, but he did not give up. He finally learned it from our neighbor’s son and practiced it day and night. Ibrahim has now won the expert level on our cellphone and is teaching me the game today. That is what I call resilience, which is as important as knowledge to succeed in everything you do.

Resilience is key to success in life, and other battles

There is a popular American English proverb that says,

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”

The proverb means that when life brings you challenges, strong people don’t just sit there doing nothing. They rises to the challenges and face them bravely, and are always successful provided they are resilient.

Resilience is the power that the One Almighty God has given to a sapling that tears through the earth into a plant and one day into a tree.

The story of King Bruce and the spider is well known. After the English repeatedly defeated his armies, the famed King of Scots was forced into hiding. Legend has it that when Robert’s spirits were broken, he took refuge in a cave. Sitting in the cave, he noticed a small spider attempting to weave a web. The spider tried and failed over and over. Each time the spider fell, it climbed back up to try again. Finally, the spider’s silk took hold, and the spider managed to spin a web.

The lesson he learned from the spider prompted the King to go back and defeat his enemies. He was victorious against the King of England in the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. This triumph ultimately turned the tides towards later winning the independence of Scotland in 1328. 

In fact, resilience is a key to success in all battles, including that of life. I can say this because life has been a roller-coaster ride for me as I have seen many ups and downs. But, the gracious God has blessed me with this internal strength which has helped me rise again and again. Praise the Lord.

Finally, I wish you a good day and a bright future.

Your blogging friend

Rehan Kazi

And finally here is a video in which we can learn the meaning of resilience through children in class.

Consider your life 5 or 10 years ago; has it turned out the way you anticipated it would?
Are you the person you imagined yourself to be?
Your decisions today will influence your future.
Even though we are usually advised to live in the moment and not worry about the future, planning and devising tactics to improve your future life is essential.
However, don’t let it consume you to the point where it interferes with your daily life.
After all, if you believe in fate, what is meant to be will be.
But it can’t hurt to make decisions that will help you build your future or become the person you want to be, can it?

Covid-19 vaccine passports to help you fly during the pandemic

Just a year ago the world was waiting for scientists to create a vaccine to end the troubles it was facing due to Covid-19. And now, the the European Union (EU) is looking to develop and launch COVID-19 vaccine passports.

The EU will launch these passports in partnership with the the airline sector and the governments of some Asian countries. The partnership aims to ease travel and give a much needed boost to the global tourism industry.

Travelers would now be able use cellphone apps to prove they have been vaccinated. This could help them avoid onerous quarantine requirements at their destinations.

The user’s official or authorized e-immunization record would be contained in the Covid-19 vaccine passports.

Britain’s National Health Service app allows fully vaccinated users to prove their status when traveling overseas. But,the EU, China, and Japan are working on their own digital vaccination certificates for cross-border travel.

Any official vaccination certificates will be stored in smartphone apps, like the mobile wallets that would be launched by the EU by June, 2021.

However, the multiple efforts highlight the lack of one central global system to electronically verify vaccination status.

While questions related to privacy and vaccine inequality linger, the projects are also facing technical issues in collaborating.

Concerns have also been raised about the misuse of data to “control people, restrict freedom and erode privacy.”

Stay encouraged and connected during Covid-19

This is a motivational picture that says this too shall pass

Staying encouraged is one of the things that’s hard to do in these times of Covid-19. Another thing that is difficult to do is staying in touch with and regularly meeting our loved ones. Looks like, the pandemic which has very adversely affected the world will be there for a long time long time. But, we all need to stay encouraged and connected during these tough times of Covid-19.

One of the best ways to stay encouraged in such tough times, is to believe and have faith in just the One Almighty God.

In this post, I am glad to share an article that offers you a solution to the above challenges during Covid-19.

When I created my latest blog, Better Life Info, the world was still grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic, which started in 2020. I wanted to create a blog that would help people live happily during the pandemic and even after it ended. I had already created a successful blog Towards A Better Life with the same aim in mind.

The new blog, Better Life Info, will help you learn life skills to cope with the demands and challenges of life, not just a pandemic.

The article that I am sharing inside of this post says, “To remain encouraged through this Pandemic, we must focus on supporting, encouraging, and empowering each other. We can either gather (safely) or communicate in other ways.

Our family meets (almost) each Sunday for a Zoomby Zoom sessions. My sister thought of the idea and it has occurred for over a year now.

We have the same conversations we would have during our gatherings, but more often because we do not live very close together.

Another way to stay in touch is through the phone… call or text even more often than before the Pandemic.

I would say that even after this Pandemic (if ever) is over, we continue to use the phone for encouragement through texts and calls.”
