THE DONKEY

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw.. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL :
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but  more from God.

Google launches internet browser

Google's new web browser is called Chrome
 It's certainly the biggest news in the browser space since Firefox started to dent Internet Explorer's lead and many people see this as a re-ignition of the browser wars 
Darren Waters

Google is launching an open source web browser to compete with Internet Explorer and Firefox.

The browser is designed to be lightweight and fast, and to cope with the next generation of web applications that rely on graphics and multimedia.

Called Chrome, it will launch as a beta for Windows machines in 100 countries, with Mac and Linux versions to come.

"We realised... we needed to completely rethink the browser," said Google's Sundar Pichai in a blog post.

The new browser will help Google take advantage of developments it is pushing online in rich web applications that are challenging traditional desktop programs.

Google has a suite of web apps, such as Documents, Picasa and Maps which offer functionality that is beginning to replace offline software.

"What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what we set out to build," Mr Pichai, VP Product Management, wrote.

Competition

The launch of a beta version of Chrome on Tuesday evening (UK time) will be Google's latest assault on Microsoft's dominance of the PC business. The firm's Internet Explorer program dominates the browser landscape, with 80% of the market.

Those already in the browser space were quick to respond to the news.

Writing in his blog, John Lilly, chief executive of Mozilla was sanguine about the new rival in the browsersphere.

"It should come as no real surprise that Google has done something here — their business is the web, and they’ve got clear opinions on how things should be, and smart people thinking about how to make things better."

Chrome will be a browser optimized for the things that they see as important, and it’ll be interesting to see how it evolves," he wrote.

He welcomed the competition and said collaboration between Mozilla and Google on certain projects would continue.

Dean Hachamovitch, general manager of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, was more bullish.

"The browser landscape is highly competitive, but people will choose Internet Explorer 8 for the way it puts the services they want right at their fingertips, respects their personal choices about how they want to browse and, more than any other browsing technology, puts them in control of their personal data online," he said in a statement.

Chrome will be available for download from the morning of Wednesday 3rd September, PST.

One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.. 

 

One is Evil. 

It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.  

 

The other is Good. 

It is joy, peace , love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

 

 The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 

'Which wolf wins?'

 

The grandfather simply replied,

 

'The one you feed.'

Neglecting Congregational Prayer
"Whoever hears the call to prayer but does not hearken to it, then he has no prayer." [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (217)]

`Alî b. Abî Tâlib said: "There is no prayer for the neighbor of the mosque except in the mosque." [Musannaf `Abd al-Razzâq (1915) and Musannaf Ibn Abî Shaybah (3469)]

 

"The covenant between us and them is prayer. Whoever abandons it has disbelieved." [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (2621)]


The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Whoever abandons the `Asr prayer, his deeds are lost." [Sahîh al-Bukharî (528)]


Backbiting & Rumor-Mongering
Prophet (peace be upon him) defined backbiting in the following way:
He said: “Do you know what backbiting is?”
They said: “Allah and His Messenger know best.”
He said: “It is to mention about your brother something that he would dislike having mentioned about him.” [Sahîh Muslim (2589)]

Someone enquired: “O Messenger of Allah! How do you see it if what I said about him is true?”
He replied: “If what you said about him is true, then you have backbitten him. If what you said about him is false, then you have slandered him.” [Sahîh Muslim (2589)]

 

Hudhayfah heard about a man who was spreading rumors and he said: "I heard Allah-s Messenger say: 'A rumor-monger will not enter Paradise." [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (6056) and Sahîh Muslim (105)]


Vulgar Speech and Bad Manners
Abû Hurayrah relates that the prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Whoever does not abandon false speech and acting falsely, then Allah has no need of his abandoning food and drink." [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (1903)]


The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Fasting is a shield, so the one who fasts should avoid obscene speech and ignorant behavior. If someone abuses him or starts to fight with him, he should reply by saying: 'I am fasting.'" [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (1795)]


Excessive Eating and Drinking
It is related from al-Miqdâm b. Ma`di Yakrib that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The human being does not fill up any vessel worse than his stomach. It is sufficient for a person to eat just enough to keep his back straight. If he must eat more, then he can fill a third with food, a third with drink, and leave a third for air." [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (2380)]


Getting Angry
Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The strong person is not the one who can wrestle someone else down. The strong person is the one who can control himself when he is angry." [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (5763) and Sahîh Muslim (2609)]


Women Putting on Perfume to Go to the Mosque
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Any woman who dons perfume should refrain from attending the `Ishâ' congregation with us." [Sahîh Muslim (444)]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said: "Any woman who puts on perfume and then walks by people so they can get a whiff of her perfume is a wanton woman." [Sunan al-Tirmidhî (2786) and Sunan al-Nasâ'î (5126)]
