Unsung Heroes!

Unsung heroes, that look totally 'mundane' from the outside, working in labs...people of science...and yet some fiery passion rages within them to serve their homeland and the Ummah at large!
Dr Sabieh Anwar...the best physicist in Pakistan, carries the same love and junoon for Pakistan! An epitome of humility, this genius scientist left offers of highly-paid jobs and luxurious lifestyle in the West and returned to Pakistan to serve his country!

A first-hand confrontation with a liberal secular pseudo-intellectual

"Having a first-hand confrontation with a liberal secular snake is an ambivalent experience! It drives you up the wall and at the same time, makes you laugh at the absurdity of their claims!

Imagine getting into an argument with such a person who happens to be a 'teacher' in your class... As is the situation in many universities now, today I had to bear a 2 hour long class taught by the instructor who seems to be a true 'epitome' of such an ideology. Interestingly, the class was about 'critical thinking', looking at both sides of the picture. And the topic for the debate was 'relations with India'. The instructor started out with the 'positive' aspects (as if there exist any!). And while the class threw around stupid points like trade and 'cultural similarities', she was delighted and kept on discussing them in detail. But when i interjected and pointed towards Indian funding of TTP, BLA, of Indian atrocities of 1947 and in Kashmir, she waved those points away as 'bias', claiming that Muslims were involved in an equal killing of Hindus as well.

She gleefully jumped into the claim that Mumbai attacks were done by Pakistan and just won't listen about the recent Indian report which said otherwise. At this point, I just begin to smile at the absurdity of the arguments; at the way she was deftly steering the debate in her required direction; at the way she was deliberately focusing on one side of the picture while teaching us to think 'critically'. That is the tactic of such self-made intellectuals; to twist around arguments and convolute facts, at the same time, pretending to be 'rational' and 'logical' and 'unbiased'.
The funniest part was where she said "In Pakistan, we are taught in our textbooks that wherever you find a Hindu, kill him!"
As the class ran out of positive aspects in the fantasy that they live in, time had run out and hence the real face of Pak-India relations remained veiled in that so-called 'critical thinking' class!
As the class ended, I took a picture of the points gathered on the board as a souvenir of the battle:




This is what they really teach us in universities!" -HZ

Muslim Contribution to Chemistry!

The word 'Chemistry' derives from the word alchemy, which is a European one, derived from the Arabic al-keemiya! (الكيمياء)

Muslim contribution to modern ch
emistry is evident from the fact that many terms used in chemistry have their origins directly from Arabic. For example:

>The word "alkali" is derived from Arabic al qalīy meaning the calcined ashes, referring to the original source of alkaline substances.

> the word 'alcohol' is from the Arabic كحل (al-kuḥl, "kohl, a powder used as an eyeliner"); alcohol was originally used for the very fine powder produced by the sublimation of the natural mineral stibnite to form antimony sulfide Sb2S3 (hence the essence or "spirit" of the substance), which was used as an antiseptic, eyeliner, and cosmetic.

>amalgam comes from Arabic الملغم al-malgham

>anil, aniline, polyaniline from النيل al-nīl | an-nīl, indigo dye.

> zircon originates from the arabic "zargun", which describes the colour of the gemstone now known as zircon (ZrSiO4).
