Mother is a great gift of god, the gift which is already there for us even before we exist. It starts when we are piece of flush, she starts caring us, and she starts feeding us, protecting us from dangers and troubles. That time we are senseless and we never know if she don't keep us insider her we can't survive. If she refuses us to keep we have no place to go, no place to live.

She makes us grow by providing us blood from insider her body and other needs. She gives us a peaceful place to sleep and eat. At the same time she face troubles in all her daily routines , in walking, in sitting, in eating but still she feels happy to serve us. She faces all these troubles till 9 months for us and also makes kind prayers to God that we remain healthy without any request. Finally she gets hell of pain to make us the part of this world from no existence to existence.

Still her job didn't end, she has to feed us again, and she has to care us more until we can stand up. Again day and night she starts another hard work. Cleaning us, dressing us up, and taking care of our rest and everything we need she do for us without a single penny.

Another period ends and we start walking, that day she become that happy as no one else in this world. After growing us physically now she starts growing us up mentally. She teaches us, she send us to school, she helps us learn things. Again hard work. She listens our stupid things we encounter in the day, she tells us stories so that we can have some entertainment then she makes us sleep in her lap.

Then we start going to school, she take us to school, she brings us back and with the passing time, we feel we have our own identity, who is mother ? She is just a kind servant whose duty is to take care of us. With the time when we finish school and go to college, now mother becomes second priority. We can decide in our matters ourselves, we can go anywhere we want. But she doesn't mind that and keeps giving us same love and care as still we are a kid.

Finally we start our life race, we start earning good money, and we got our own family with a loving life partner and a beautiful house. Mother is now gone far away from our priorities. We become busy and we have to earn, but still she is there for us making prayers. But we are still busy.

How to Transfer Credit in Mobily

Mobily is the second largest Mobile Network in the Kingdom, from its start to today's date it has provided great services and benifits to customer. When Mobily started its services only STC was operating Mobile Networks in KSA. That time call rates were so higher compared to International standards, International call rates, sms rates and Internet data rates. Mobily has started a the trend of promotion offers and low-call rate packages to mobile users in Saudi Arabia that was never done before, in the result using mobile phone became easier for a lot of middle-class community and a big number of expatriates. Now calling outside the Kingdom is not an expensive deal. Expatriates from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Philpines, Indonesia, Gulf and other arab countries are major mobile users.

Mobily is offering so many services that I can't desribe them all here. Here I would like to show the process of transfering credit from one mobily number to another. Please note that credit transfer is not possible among different operators, however it is possible internationally among different operators (this is because they have signed aggrements)

Transfer credit

All Mobily prepaid active subscribers can independently transfer credit from their mobile to another prepaid customer. Why would someone use a credit transfer?

HTC Desire Smartphone is launched in Saudi Arabian Market

The Android 2.1 Powered Smartphone from HTC has been launched in Saudi Arabian Market yesterday after long wait. It is an amazing charming device which carries all the latest features of Android Operating system. I have already covered a review on HTC Desire in one of my previous posts and also I drawn a comparison on HTC HD2 and HTC Desire smartphones. Nasa Smart Devices is first retailer who have released it.

The device is currently available in 3290 SR which is about 878 US $. This price is very close to other Windows Mobile device from HTC HD2. If we take a look at the specification we'll find both devices very similar, The main difference is OS.

There has been a lot of demand of this device in Saudi Arabia, It is expected to be available at Nasa Shops very soon.

How to make your Nokia phone a wireless access point

In HTC smartphones HTC HD2 was probabally first Smartphone that works as a Wireless access point. Using your 3G connection it enabales you to use Internet on your laptop or desktop PC. HTC HD2 is an expensive phone. To get this facility not everyone can buy HD2. Now it is possible for Nokia S60 (Symbian OS) phones users to turn their Nokia phones into a Wireless access point. It is only possible for Nokia phones that have Wi-Fi hardware buil-in on their motherboards.

Internet connection sharing from GSM/3G/Edge was possible already on many Nokia phones via Bluetooth connections and USB cable connections. But Wireless Tethering really makes a difference.

Just install JoikuSpot Light FREE Hotspot on your Nokia S60 handset. This application is available free and has some limitiations too. It shares your phone's 3G internet connection over WiFi (WLAN) to a single laptop or other WiFi device. The Light version supports basic internet browsing only. However Premium version that  comes in about 7.5 US $ has following additional features.

HTC HD2 - Is it the Best Smartphone ever

For many years Windows Mobile users have been disappointed every time a new handset was announced because this or that feature was missing. Not long ago it was screen resolutions, people wanted VGA screens, before that it was Wi-Fi or GPS, 3D acceleration or camera flashes etc. This year HTC finally announced what everybody’s been wishing and waiting for. A Windows Mobile Smartphone that has every single feature imaginable (besides a QWERTY keyboard), the HTC HD2. Will this device be enough for the power user?

The Hardware

First we are going to look at what we’ve got here. With its 4.3inch WVGA display the HTC HD2 has the biggest capacitive touch screen on a phone ever and is the first capacitive Windows Mobile device. Made popular by the iPhone (followed by Android devices) capacitive touch panels enable multi-touch/point input unlike commonly used resistive touch-panels and a smoother finger interaction thanks to the glass screen. Another advantage of this technology is that there is no air gap between the touch-panel and the LCD display so optical clarity and contrast is improved reducing the need for heavy backlighting making power draw lower. Unfortunately traditional stylus (or any other conventional object, finger nail) can no longer be used.

Other than that, the huge screen is the first thing that will feast your eyes when you see the HD2, and the device’s second most important component is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset (QSD8250) which is composed of a 1ghz CPU and 600Mhz DSP. The CPU is a derivative of the ARMv9 Cortex8 architecture and includes an AMD Z430 GPU featuring a unified pixel & vertex shader pipeline (based on the Xbox 360 Xenos GPU) and is OpenGL-ES 2.0 compatible. To make it simple, it’s the fastest mobile SoC out now (nVidia’s Tegra APX is close but the ARM11 CPU currently used is holding it back). Besides those two important features the HD2 packs a 5Mpix camera with autofocus, dual LED flash, 448Mb of Ram, 512Mb of Rom, Micros USB port, 3.5mm jack; FM radio, aGPS, Digital Compass , and a lot more.

Pakistan or Pornistan? What's the truth

I have a great appreciation for the guy who has revealed the true facts by simply looking at the issue published by fox news and making some research himself to find the truth. Rest of Pakistani media is a lazy sleeping media who even can't do a small research to figure out the truth (I have seen fox news story copy/paste by an Urdu Newspaper, they even didn't give it a minute to find the true facts) Instead they make Sania-Shoaib wedding their lead story. It should be our (Bloggers) duty to start trends for positive and truthful reporting. A big hand for Koolmuzone.com guy.

The following is An Article by: Guitar_freaK at Koolmuzone.com
Disclaimer: This article might not be suitable for all audiences. Readers discretion is advised.

Today Fox News published a report on Pakistan and refereed to it as Pornistan claiming that it is “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches”. Whatever keywords Fox News has mentioned are factual and not made-up. I don’t deny the fact that Pakistan ranks 1st on these keywords. I also don’t deny the fact that porn is popular in Pakistan. However, I deny that Pakistan is “No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches” as claimed by Fox News.

Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for “horse sex” since 2004, “donkey sex” since 2007, “rape pictures” between 2004 and 2009, “rape sex” since 2004, “child sex” between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, “animal sex” since 2004 and “dog sex” since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms.

It’s funny how the mentioned keywords are few of the least popular keywords when it comes to pornography. Below is the image of comparison of these keywords along with other major keywords related to pornography like “sex”, “porn”, “big tits”

If you have a look at the image, the search volume for keyword “sex” is FAAAR more than other keywords. Keyword “Porn” has the 2nd highest search volume. Followed by “big tits” and then there is this little search volume for “rape sex” and “horse sex” which you might spot with a magnifying glass.

All new Digg is just about to arrive - Digg V4 Alpha

Digg.com has introduced new Digg V4 alpha. Digg team is inviting a few group of users, publishers and advertisers to new version of Digg. There are about 20,000 invitations send by Digg.

However still they have found troubles in Digg alpha. I have just started using it yesterday and it looks like not a lot of people are using it. Next to it I searched it in the google and I didn't find good result on that. Here I am quoting what Digg team is saying...

As we set out to redesign Digg, our first priority has been to improve the user experience by focusing on 3 areas: Speed, Personalization, Diversity of Content.
Speed:All product features, from submitting a story, to digging to commenting, are now done under a second. We hope this makes using the new Digg a pleasant experience.
Personalization:"My News" is the custom news page we build for you based on the people and/or sources of news you follow. Only stories that have been dugg or submitted by these sources will show up in My News. You can make My News relevant to you by choosing to follow people and sources that you consider tastemakers for your particular interests.
Diversity of Content:In addition to user submitted stories, we now feature stories submitted via RSS by large and small publishers. You can also add any RSS feed yourself. We want to make sure that if an important news story develops from any source, you get to read it on Digg
In addition to these enhancements, we have kept the familiar top stories home page showing you the most popular stories on Digg, as dugg by all users - this feature is now referred to as Top News.
Additional information for Publishers is here and for Advertisers is here.
That's it for now, we hope you enjoy this new version. We plan to iterate continuously so if you have any feedback or questions we'd love to hear them. You can use the links at the bottom of any page to submit your input.

Here are few graphics consisting of Urdu writing. 10 Beautiful habits of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). I recieved these by email, thought to share it with you.

Mobile phone connections reached 5 Billion mark world-wide

BBC news reported more than 5 billion mobile phone connections have been registered during last 18 months. This tally was conducted by an organization "Wireless Intelligence". There are many countries where mobile phone subscriptions reaches more than hundred percent. That means more than one subscriber got two connections at a time. Big mobile manufacturers like Nokia, Samsung, BlackBerry, Apple and HTC got huge profits. Search engine Google has also taking part in this business by sponsoring android phone developments.

I have seen a mobile first time in 2001 when my brother purchased it from Saudi Arabia. It was first color screen device from Nokia and I showed it to my class mates and all of them got huge interest in it. Later on Mobile phone cameras developed, then WAP support mobile sets launched, 3G and 4G technologies introduced and now Mobile phone is need of everyone. From a 5 years child to an old man. This is an invention which is benifiting everyone. Huge Business has been generated and communication become so easy.

16 Basic Internet Definitions for Kids

Back in 2008 I have written this booklet for my employer's children. I have also given them a few lectures using multimedia projector. The purpose of this booklet was to introduce basic Internet terminologies and Resources. It is very easy to know about Yahoo, Microsoft and Google for an adult. But for children it becomes little difficult to explain them What is Internet and Why is Internet. That time I googled a lot to find similer stuff free from some online resource but I have found everyone is asking for registrations, course fees and paid lectures. Even basic education books for children are very expensive. So that I decided to solve this issue myself and I spent a week writing all this. Also I put visual aids for childern to understand easily. Here is the booklet index.

Another buddy at Common Craft is also doing stuff like this as I have mentioned in an earlier post.

Gulf of Mexico Continues to Leak

Based on recently revised estimates, BP's ruptured oil well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico continues to leak 25,000 to 30,000 barrels of oil a day. The new figures suggest that an amount of oil equivalent to the Exxon Valdez disaster could still be flowing into the Gulf of Mexico every 8 to 10 days. Despite apparent efforts to restrict journalists from accessing affected areas, stories, video and photographs continue to emerge. Collected here are recent photographs of oil-affected wildlife, people and shorelines around the Gulf of Mexico on this, the 51st day after the initial explosion.

Oil covered brown pelicans found off the Louisiana coast and affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico wait in a holding pen for cleaning at the Fort Jackson Oiled Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Buras, Louisiana, June 9, 2010. An American Egret takes flight from an oil-impacted marsh along the Louisiana coast Monday, June, 7, 2010.
Sheila Clark, widow of Donald Clark who was killed in the April 20 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, listens as U.S. Senator Charles Schumer speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill June 10, 2010 in Washington, DC. Family members of the 11 victims of the explosion called on the Senate to ensure that the oil and drilling companies are held responsible for the tragedy.

Why Did Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) marry many wifes?

When people hear that the prophet had many wives they conclude without much thought that the prophet was a sensuous man. However, a quick historical review of his marriages, proves otherwise.
When he was twenty-five years old he married for the first time. His wife, Khadijah, was fifteen years older than he. She remained the only wife of the prophet for the next twenty-five years, until she died (may Allah be pleased with her).

Only after her death, did the prophet marry other women. Now, it is obvious that if the prophet was after physical pleasure he did not have to wait until he was more than fifty years old to start marrying more wives. He lived in a society in which it was quite acceptable to have many wives. But the prophet remained devoted to his only wife for twenty-five years. When she died she was sixty-five years old.

His later marriages were for various reasons. Some marriages were with the view to help the women whose husbands had been killed while they were defending their faith. Others were with a view to cement relationships with devoted followers like Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him. Yet others were to build bridges with various tribes who were otherwise at war with the Muslims. When the prophet became their relative through marriage, their hostilities calmed down, and much bloodshed was averted.

Preaching Islam on Electronic Media is our responsibility

There are thousands of websites who are publishing hateful literature for Islam and Muslims, recently I saw a blog publishing poor articles about our holy prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Immediately I submitted a complain about that blog at WordPress team as the blog was hosted with them.

But it is hard for any online community site to take an action against anyone on a single complaint. Internet and Community sites are a very strong media these days and we have to accept this fact. Also it is possible now for everyone that he/she can express himself to the world through online media sites.

Media has grown very strong in Pakistan in last few years and there are a lot of T.V Channels are working, but unfortunately their purpose is not that what non-Muslim community is using for their media for. Non-Muslim community is widely using their media to develop hate against Muslim world. Unfortunately Muslim media is not taking their responsibilities as serious and unable to develop a true image of Muslims and Islamic world.

How to store your files online

Thanks to a growing range of services, it’s now possible to keep all your personal digital information in the Internet “cloud”, as they’re calling it these days. Everything from documents and e-mails to photos and music can be stored — often for free.

The benefits of storing your digital life this way are considerable. You’re no longer tied to a particular computer or location, and you can access your data from any Internet-connected device.
There are a vast number of Internet-based storage services available and growing user demand is leading to some of the world’s biggest IT companies offering more. Interest surged recently when Microsoft launched its SkyDrive service (see below) in more than 30 countries around the world, including Australia. Meanwhile there are strong rumours that Google is planning a similar service, likely to be called GDrive, that will offer masses of online storage space to anyone who wants it.
The Internet storage services we’ve chosen for this round-up can be divided into two categories: those intended primarily for storing and sharing files, and those designed specifically for backups. While some can be used for both, a quick check of their features will determine what they’re best at delivering.

Create A Powerful CV - Resume

Tips and tools to creating a winning CV that will get you noticed.
Your CV is your gateway to the universe of career opportunities and investing in the right focus, structure, phrasing and syntax at this early stage of the job search process will reap tremendous rewards in opening doors to the next critical stage: the Interview. Below we have identified some of the key factors that differentiate a successful CV from those that never make it through the search.

A good CV shows clarity of vision. The jobseeker knows what it is they are looking for and has clearly highlighted what attributes/ skills/ experience they have that will enable them to succeed in that direction. You will win the interview primarily on the strength of your skills/experience and their direct relevance to the job at hand. Vague/ fuzzy statements in the Title, Objectives or Experience sections will detract from the impact of your CV and raise questions rather than opening doors.

Exaggerated claims on CVs are easily detected, if not immediately, then upon reference checks at a later date in the process. To avoid embarrassment, you should be as factual and accurate as possible. Ommit details that don’t make you look good at the CV stage (eg. a less than attractive GPA or the fact that you were terminated from a job) but do not present facts that cannot be substantiated. Do highlight your areas of strength in the best possible light (hobbies/ interests/ skills can be embellished); however, do not provide glaring misrepresentations.

امربالمعروف،نہی عن المنکر

حضرت انس رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ فرماتے ہیں کہ حضور صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا: کیا میں تمہیں ایسے لوگ نہ بتلاؤں جو نہ نبی ہوں گے اور نہ شہید لیکن ان کو اللہ کے ہاں اتنا اونچا مقام ملے گا کہ قیامت کے دن نبی اور شہید بھی اُنہیں دیکھ کرخوش ہوں گے اور وہ نور کے خاص منبروں پر ہوں گے اور پہچانے جائیں گے، صحابہ کرام رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہم نے پوچھا یا رسول اللہ ( صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) وہ کون لوگ ہیں؟
آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا: یہ وہ لوگ ہیں جو اللہ تعالیٰ کے بندوں کو اللہ کامحبوب بناتے ہیں اوراللہ تعالیٰ کو اس کے بندوں کا محبوب بناتے ہیں اور لوگوں کے خیرخواہ بن کر زمین پر پھرتے ہیں، میں نے عرض کیا یہ بات تو سمجھ میں آتی ہے کہ وہ اللہ کو اس کے بندوں کا محبوب بنائیں،لیکن یہ سمجھ میں نہیں آرہا ہے کہ وہ اللہ کے بندوں کو اللہ کا محبوب کیسے بنائیں گے؟
آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا: یہ لوگ اللہ کے بندوں کو ان کاموں کا حکم دیں گے جو کام اللہ کو محبوب اور پسند ہیں اور ان کاموں سے روکیں گے جو اللہ کو پسند نہیں ہیں۔ وہ بندے جب ان کی بات مان کر اللہ کے پسندیدہ کام کرنے لگ جائیں تو یہ بندے اللہ کے محبوب بن جائیں گے۔
