MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

the blessed days of Zulhijjah and Eid ul-Adha greetings to all

" I wish you ALL a very happy and peaceful Eid-ul-Adha "

We are now in the period when Muslims around the world perform the rites of Hajj. Today we are in the first 10 days of the month of Zulhijjah. A month which Allah has blessed with the day of Arafah. With Eid-ul-Adha and the Aayaamut-Tashriq. This is the month which Allah has ordained for us the rites of Sacrifice. In the first ten days, we are encouraged to increase our 'ibadah' and to fast, particularly on the 9th of Zulhijjah, which is the day of Arafah. That is 19th December 2007, insha'Allah.

Let us also fill this times with Zikr', reciting the Qur'an as much as we can. Let us perform additional 'Night Solat'. Let us increase our devotional practices and worship to Allah. To draw nearer to Him with our obedience.

In a hadith, Rasulullah (saw) says: "There is no other days in which ibadah is more loved by Allah then these ten days (that is, of the month of Zulhijjah)". The companions asked him: O Rasulullah! Even better than jihad in the cause of Allah? The Prophet s.a.w replied: Yes, it is even better than jihad in the cause of Allah, except if one goes out for jihad with his life and his wealth, and he do not return with both.

In another hadith, Rasulullah (saw) says: "There are no days in which ibadah is more loved by Allah than the first ten days of Zulhijjah. Fasting for a day in it is the same as fasting for a year. And to do ibadah during its nights, is the same as if doing in the night of power, that is Lailatul Qadr."

I wish you ALL a very happy and peaceful Eid-ul-Adha . May Allah accept our good deeds and sacrifices, forgive our transgressions and ease the suffering of all peoples around the world.

“ Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy ”

Steve Jobs - Referring to the pirate flag that flew over Apple’s headquaters in 1983. I believe that quote was one of three keyphrases for a large Apple meeting/conference, and the Pirate flag was attached to the Macintosh building after that meeting. So the flag was actually a reaction to that.
