Councillor from French far-right party Front National converts to Islam – and urges others to follow

FrontNationalParty

Maxence Buttey says there are a lot of similarities between Islam and the Front National

A local councillor representing Marine Le Pen’s far-right party, the Front National, has announced he has converted to Islam – and has urged fellow party members to do the same.

Maxence Buttey, 22, has been suspended from a regional Front National committee after he went public with his decision and sent out a “proselytising video” to the party in which he praised the “visionary virtues of the Koran and urged them to convert, the Telegraph reported.

Mr Buttey, who is a councillor in the eastern Paris suburb, Noisy-le-grand, said the Front National and Islam had a lot in common.

He told French newspaper, Le Parisien: “Like Islam, the FN defends the weakest. The party denounces exorbitant interest rates charged on the debt of our country, and Islam is against the practice of usury.” Continue reading “Councillor from French far-right party Front National converts to Islam – and urges others to follow”

But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one…” (Qur’an, 20:124)
“When Allah desires to guide someone, He expands his breast to Islam. When He desires to misguide someone, He makes his breast narrow and constricted as if he were climbing up into the sky. That is how Allah defiles those who have no faith.” (Qur’an, 6:125)
The failure of irreligious people in submitting themselves to Allah causes them to be in a constant state of ill ease, anxiety and stress. As a consequence, they are afflicted by various psychological illnesses, which reveal themselves in their physical selves. Their bodies wear down more quickly, and they age rapidly and degenerate.
As a result of physical or psychological stress, the individual’s adrenal gland (the gland above each kidney) secretes large amounts of glucocorticoid hormones. These hormones increase the energy level of muscles, and temporarily halt such activities as growth, which are inessential at that moment. In cases of extreme physical and chronic psychological stress these hormones, which are otherwise of vital importance, can give rise to stress related disorders, such as high blood pressure, obesity, bone erosion and stomach ulcers.
However, since believers are psychologically healthy, they do not fall prey to stress, or despondence, and their bodies are ever fit and healthy. Continue reading “Depression — results of not abiding by faith”

When we are faced with difficulty…

10850079_593658714097348_6049229448392327603_n

When we are faced with difficulty, we should be patient with our hearts and show gratitude with our tongues. Such that the evil in our lives is transformed into good. And that which is believed to be tribulation will be transformed into a gift.

In our physical form we turn to the Ka’bah, but with our hearts we turn to Allâh. Anything we see to have been difficult in our lives, say Alhamdulillâh Alhamdulillâh Alhamdulillâh.

Sonny Bill Williams: Islam Brings Me Happiness

By Gary Morley and Neil Curry, CNN
November 27, 2013

CNN) — It was in the cave of Hira that the prophet Muhammad received the first revelation of the Quran. For rugby’s original wild child Sonny Bill Williams, meeting a Tunisian family who lived with their five children in a one-bedroom flat in the south of France proved pivotal to his conversion to Islam.

The New Zealander’s unshakeable belief in the Almighty has proved to be the making of one of the island nation’s most gifted — and controversial — sports stars.
“I was real close with them, and I saw how happy and content they were. And to see how they lived their lives, it was just simple,” Sonny Bill Williams, a prodigious rugby talent, professional boxer and tattooed poster boy, tells CNN’s Human to Hero series.

ISLAM – RELIGION OF PEACE

10857883_1570797746465472_5338757448318940334_n

ISLAM – RELIGION OF PEACE

Our Beloved No-Muslims Brothers & Sisters, The main reason for this post again in our page, we saw that there are large number of people’s spreading wrong message about ISLAM, after Terrorist attack in Pakistan. Of course, it is Un-Islamic and against Islam. If who hope peaceful world, never can support any types of Terrorism, If it is doing Muslims or Non-Muslims.

It is our humble request you to that don’t judge ISLAM with looking followers of ISLAM. Because ISLAM is perfect. But humans are not perfect. So, they can makes mistakes. And of course, But sadly, Some of Muslims and Muslims Organization doing wrong things In the name of ISLAM. But such people’s are Muslims only by Names.

Our beloved non-Muslims brothers and sisters, we also request you to that don’t believe everything MEDIA tells You. Because some of Western MEDIAS also helps to spreading wrong message about Islam. If you sincerely seeking truth, then study Islam with Holy Qur’an and Sunna (Authentic Hadeeth), not from MEDIAS. Then you will understand what is ISLAM?, what it teaching? and Who was our beloved Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W). In Sha Allah.

Again we are inform that ISLAM RELIGION OF PEACE

Terrorism and Islam

The Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ was very soft hearted. Syedna Anas bin Malik (r.a.) reported that he served the Prophet Muhammadﷺ for 10 years but the Prophet Muhammadﷺ never raised his voice at him!

The same Beloved Prophet Muhammadﷺ has used very harsh words against the Khawarij (Taliban, IS, Al Qaida Terrorists). He called them dogs of hell and commanded the believers to eliminate them. Heﷺ said that if you meet them kill them and you will get reward from ALLAH on the Day of Judgement for this act.

When you see how the khwarij dogs kill innocent people specially how they yesterday killed more than 100 children in a school, then you can totally understand why the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ used such words against these khawarij.

– Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri

May God help us.

In Russia the rebel movement of Shamil Basayev was responsible for the killing of 350 people in the Beslan school siege. Most of them were children. In Nigeria Boko Haram kidnapped 276 young girls from a school in Borno State. In Yemen Al-Qaeda blew up a school in the city of Reda in which 20 children were killed. And just now, the Pakistani Taliban massacred 141 students in a school in Peshawar.

After all this there still remains amongst us people who consider these criminal khawarij to be ‘mujahidin!’

May God guide us & guide through us, lift the veil from our sight and return us to Islam in a beautiful return.

sanctity of the human life in Islam

Dear Brothers and sisters in Islam
The following Hadith points out the sanctity of the human life in Islam,

In the Targhib wa’ l-Tarhib of Imam al-Mundhiri, 3/276 it has the following hadith from `Abd Allah ibn `Amr ibn al-`As (Allah be well pleased with him) that he said: “I saw the Messenger of Allah (saw) performing tawaf around the Holy Ka`ba saying to it: ‘how pure and good you are! how pure and good your fragrance is! how great and exalted you are! and how great and exalted your sanctity is! But by Him in Whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, the sanctity of a believer’s blood and property in the sight of Allah is greater than your sanctity!’“

“in respect of the sanctity of life and the prohibition of aggression against it, Muslims and non-Muslims are equal. Attack on the personal safety of non-Muslims invokes the same punishment in this world and the Hereafter.

Imam Karim AbuZaid

Never Losing Hope..

never losing hope

It is very natural that when a person is happy and everything is going according to his whims and desires and his own wishful thinking, his performance is at it’s peak, but when he is tested or a calamity strikes him, he becomes pessimistic and isn’t able to give a good performance.The real test lies in giving a good performance despite being in stress and crisis.

An Indian Reverted Muslimah’s journey to Islam

Indian Reverted Muslimah

As salamu ‘alai kum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh… Have you ever looked into the mirror and wondered who is staring back at you? Everyday as I look into it, I surprise myself! Who do I see? Indeed, Allah knows what I do not know and indeed it is He who knows me the best.

Islam, was something that came naturally to me. As if it was always meant to be.. as if I was restored once I accepted the truth. Yet, until this very day, this very moment, I still discover parts of me that I never knew.. I still learn about the infinite mercies of Allah swt in my life each day and feel blessed as I drift off to sleep each night..

Welcome my dear friend…welcome to my world of thoughts… as i share in my thoughts, views and experiences as a new revert muslimah.. walk by me and know me as I know myself.

I write this, as a platform to reach out to my sisters and brothers in Islam…and also to tell my revert sisters that ‘I am there for you my dear sister, dont feel left out or lonely.. feel free to reach out to me, for I ensure you I will be there to share your joys and sorrow.. In shaa Allah

A Month as a hijabi…

It has been more than a month now… That day seems so distant..the day when I left my home with trembling hands, shaking out fear, that day when my heartbeats were so loud that the person next to me could perhaps hear it loud and clear.. it seems to a blurred image, a long gone thing that had once happened.. The day when I entered my office for the first time wearing my hijab, expecting scorns and glares, when I was trying to study every person with whom I interacted “what is he thinking about my hijab?  Would he behave differently if I wasn’t wearing one?” 

Alhamdulillah, none of it happened. Never did I feel a second glance from anyone, never did I face a scorn. It has been a month now, and I see myself grown a lot more as a muslimah than I ever did in 23years of my life. So what happened in this month? How has my first month as a hijabi been?

I remember being heartbroken about getting this job. I kept wondering why was I here when all my friends were in better places, earning five times more than I was going to earn? Why did I have to be here and slog for long hours for a meager sum?

O you who Believe! Have taqwa (fear) of Allah and believe in His Messenger; and He will bestow upon you a double portion of His Mercy and He will provide you with a light by which you will walk” [Al Qur’an 57:28]

SubhanAllah!

Today perhaps I see a little glimpse of His mercy (for his bounty is infinite and we are too insignificant to be able to measure it). Alhamdulillah. Perhaps this place was the best place for me to take my baby steps as a Muslimah, to take my first shakey steps and face the world. With my fear of facing the world, and their scorns with my head covered, I still do not know how I would have reacted if I would actually face any discrimination or agitation about my hijab. The people in my office are amazing people Alhamdulillah. It is always a very cheerful and glee environment. People work hard, talk like friends and laugh like a family. My hijab never really made any difference. After the initial days of being reserved, I started opening up to. I could be me in this place, what I really wanted to be. I did not have to shy away from any activity or be any lesser of an employee because of my deen. SubhanAllah!

A week after joining, I wanted to ask for praying. My Zuhr and Asr salah timings come within my office hours. After thinking about it for long, I gathered the courage to approach the Facilities department head and fumbled a few words about my desire to pray twice a day. Nervous as I was, I was expecting a question or two about the loss of work during that time and I was desirous of getting even the smallest corner of the office store to pray. However, better things were waiting..without even a second thought the head of department communicated to the watchman that everyday twice the guest room must be unlocked for me to pray. Till date, even before it is time for my Zuhr and Asr Salah, the watchman unlocks for me to pray the most lavish room of the office meant only to host privileged guests..why not? Wasn’t I communicating to our Rabb- the Highest and the Most Special? SubhanAllah.

Indeed, Allah has the best plans for you. He knows what is good for me and it is He who can see what I cannot. Alhamdulillah. There are obviously girls who are curious about my hair and how I would look without my scarf. One of them- Sh….- once took me to the washroom just to make me undo my hijab so that she could see my hair! M…. once asked me whether my hair is so long as to go below my waist. My response that it barely goes a little below my shoulders made her gasp in surprise!

-“but woman! The bun you make is hugeeeeeee!!” . I had to then explain her the concept of clips below my hijab used for the same.

A popular joke also circulates that I carry a secret gun/ knife under my hijab. During an important meeting, a fellow new joinee was secretly having a chocolate when he realised he doesn’t have a place to discard the wrapper. He whispers stealthily, “pssst!! M…..” (handing over the wrapper) “hide it where you hide your khanjar (knife)”. The people around, including me, found it really hard to suppress our chuckles!

Yet another popular joke is that I am secretly bald. 🙂 It is all taken and sported nicely. It does make me feel happy that I did take this decision. It gave me confidence to be what I want to be. Shukr only to Allah Alhamdulillah that He put my amongst the most encouraging, positive and happy people. Now I know that even if I ever shift my work, I shall never again feel scared of facing new people with my hijab on. I know it is now an integral part of me, and people do accept me just this way.

Not everyone knows that I am a revert and the ones who know never frowned. There is Tabassum (who is now my flatmate) and Sh… who appreciate me for my decision and encourage me on this path. Yesterday, it was time for Maghreb and I was in a mall with Sh…. As I prepared myself to spread my prayer mat in the basement to pray, Sh… suggested me to go to a trial room of some store and pray. It was a whole new experience for me! We pretended to pick a dress or two for me, I went inside the trial room and prayed to heart’s content while she patiently waited for me outside. SubhanAllah. When I came out, we kept the dress aside joking, “it’s not my type! :-)” and laughed our lungs out!

This month was special for me beyond my office too. I had never thought I would ever blog. Writing has never been my forte. Even now all I do is putting forth my thoughts in the simplest of words. I don’t know how and when one day I took the initiative to write my first post. Never had I felt so touched, never had I felt that I am important too.

Through this blog I got in touch with beautiful sisters of mine in Islam. I met reverts like me in India who face similar troubles like me about upkeeping salah, worries about marriage and disclosing her religion to her family. Women who are striving for Allah swt and with a smile awaiting the reward of jannah. I met a beautiful woman struggling to please our Creator..striving each day to better herself as a pious muslimah, a niqabi, a mother, a wife but despite everything  first a muslimah. A woman so kind and loving, who became as a sister to me, made duas for me when I was low, shared my joys when I was happy. I met learned women who are alimas and striving to be one. Women who gladly extend their generous hand with a big heart to support their sisters in Islam when they need them the most…whose hearts fill with joy to see muslimahs like me taking baby steps and progress slowly. Then I met beautiful sisters in Islam who are always generous to drop an encouraging word or two when I share my experiences. I know I am not alone now… I know you are there out there my dear sisters and brothers of Islam… JazakAllah Khairun. Shukr only to Allah for bringing you in my life. Masha’allah.

Every day I learn, about life and about my deen. I learn that life on earth is meant not to be easy but we can attain contentment by accepting that no matter what we do, our destiny is in the hands of our Lord, He is Al-Malik and Malik-ul-Mulk. No matter how much we try, the outcome is going to be what He decides for us. All we can do it put our hopes on him completely and have faith and patience.

And be patient for your patience is but by Allah…” [an-Nahl 16:127]

Please remember me in your duas that I remain steadfast. May Allah bless and reward each one of you immensely. Ameen.

Don’t be sad..

indian reverted sis,

Bismillaher Rahmaner Rahim

Dear You/*insert your name here*,

Assalamualaikum wa-rahmatullah (Peace and mercy of Allah be upon you)

I pray that you benefit from the words that follow and they bring some peace to your heart and thoughts.

I may not know what you are going through but I understand that life has been hard. You have a lot of questions running through your mind right now about your life and why things are the way they are.  I may not have the answers to those questions but I hope that my words may help you in some way or the other, if Allah wills.

Firstly, did you know that for every pain that you have been going through, a few of your sins are being expiated?

Narrated ‘Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah’s Apostle Peace Be Upon Him said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” [Bukhari Volume 7, Book 70, Number 544]

Yes, you heard that right… even if a thorn pricks you, your sins are being cleansed. So, imagine how many of your sins might have already been expiated because of the pain you have been going through all along!! SubhanAllah!

Allah knows that you are hurt, He sees and He never does any injustice… that’s why, for every calamity that befalls you, He gives you something good in return!

Put your trust in Allah! And know that even though today the world is not on your side, you are not alone. Allah (subhaana wa ta’aala) is watching over you and He WILL give you your due right! He will replace the sad days with the happy ones. Trust Him… This too shall pass!

He is your creator… and He has the knowledge of the unseen. He can see what you can’t and He knows what’s best for you…

Remember, He tells us in the Quran of this…

“But it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows, you know not.” (Surah Al Baqara 2:216)

So, know that whatever is happening right now will eventually lead to something good. I know today all you can see is the downside of it.. but tomorrow you will smile and say Alhumdulillah for it! Because.. Allah LOVES you.. and He knows what is best for you. So seek refuge in Allah.

You know, Allah tells us in the Quran “Allah does not burden a soul beyond that which it can bear”
Quran (Surah Al Baqarah 2:286).

So if today there is something that’s happening which is burdening your soul, remember Allah knows your capability better than you; and so BELIEVE that you can and will survive through this situation you are in today because Allah says so.. and Allah knows best right?!

It could also be that Allah sent away all those people in your life, so that there could be just you and Him!

So, wipe away those tears. Take out your prayer mat, sit down, raise your hands, cry if have to and tell Allah EVERYTHING that’s on your mind and heart. It’s not that Allah does not know, but do it so that it decreases the load that you have been carrying in your heart all along!

I pray that Allah rewards your every breath you take at this time of difficulty and He relieves you of the pain soon.

P.S. Smile… “Don’t be sad, Allah is with us!”

A Revert’s Journey to Islam: Natasha

10420175_1527000097569507_8520727053503399837_n

Sister YazTheSpaz brings us the uplifting story of a revert’s journey from a half-Christian, half-Jewish household in America, to Islam.

Natasha M, a Costa Rican raised in a half-Christian, half-Jewish household.

Growing up, Natasha always felt a sense of spirituality, yet her heart yearned for something deeper. As a child, she remembers having strange dreams, as though the last days of life were slowly nearing – like the Day of Judgment.

For that reason, at the age of 12, she began to read the Bible from beginning to end, in hopes of educating herself more in Christianity and gaining a closer relationship with God. As she was reading the first couple of chapters, she came across a phrase that changed her life forever. It read: ‘You shall never pray to any god but the God all mighty.’

By reading that line, she felt as though she had been sinning for so long by praying to Jesus Christ (pbuh) instead of God. From that moment on, she decided to stop following her mother’s religion of Christianity, and move on to her father’s religion – Judaism. She began attending synagogue where local members asked if she was interested in converting. She accepted, despite her mother’s disapproval. Continue reading “A Revert’s Journey to Islam: Natasha”

Islam is portrayed as a religion of terror

Islam is portrayed as a religion of terror. This is the reason behind this dislike. They call it Islamophobia but actually this is terror-phobia; people are afraid of terror. ‘You are talking about a system of terror and you are presenting it as if it is Islam. You have named terror as Islam’. Actually there is compassion, mercy, love, arts, aesthetics, science, beauty and everything beautiful in Islam.

Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad shares a story in order to describe the appreciation and awareness

10390503_591688030961083_1772612364590527121_n

Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad shares a story in order to describe the appreciation and awareness we should have of Allah’s creation. He relates a story by Mawala Rumi who describes that all of creation is in worship.

Mawlana Rumi tells of a story where a shaykh tells his mureed (student) to bring him the most beautiful flower he can find. The student returns with a dead rose. The shaykh, confused and disappointed, asks his mureed why a dead rose when there are far more beautiful flowers in the world.

The mureed responds that he went all over and looked for the most beautiful flower while making dhikr, but realized that all the flowers were in constant worship, and it would be wrong to stop them from that state. He therefore picked a dead rose since it had (naturally) stopped its state of worship. SubhanAllah.

This deep awareness of Allah’s creations of the mureed put his shaykh in awe, and the skaykh made this mureed the next shaykh.

May we all have this deep sense of awareness of Allah and his creations. Ameen.

How should we supplicate to Allah (may He be Exalted)?

Q 1: How should we supplicate to Allah (may He be Exalted)? Is it permissible for a person to supplicate to Allah in Salah (Prayer) in any language? Will their Salah be valid?

A: The Muslim should supplicate to Allah (may He be Exalted) with humility and in secret without asking for unlawful things. A person may supplicate to Allah both during Salah and at other occasions, in whatever language they speak. Salah is considered valid even if the person supplicates to Allah (may He be Exalted) in a language other than Arabic. When supplicating to Allah (may He be Exalted) during Salah, a person should use the Du`a’ (supplication) that are authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) and recite them where and how the Prophet (peace be upon him) recited them so as to follow the example of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Many scholars wrote books on the Du`a’ and Adhkar (invocations and Remembrances said at certain times on a regular basis) of the Prophet (peace be upon him), such as (Al-Kalim Al-Tayyib) by Ibn Tayymiah, (Al-Wabil Al-Sayyib) by Ibn Al-Qayyim, and (Riyad Al-Salihin) and (Al-Adhkar) by Al-Nawawy. You can buy any of these books to know the authentically reported Du`a’ and Adhkar, and how and when they should be said. This is better and of great benefit to you.

If you keep hiding your emotions with the people around you- Megan Wyatt

If you keep hiding your emotions with the people around you, you’ll discover that after life has weathered you through a few years, that you have become a hollow shell. You see your face on the outside, looking into the mirror, but cannot find your heart. You interact with the world almost as if you live behind a glass wall. You see everyone and everything, even the beauty that Allah has created in the trees, the sky, a snowflake, a baby’s smile.

But you cannot truly grasp, touch, nor envelop that beauty, the love, the mercy, or happiness. And it cannot envelop you.

You do no one a favor when you hide, especially your own self. By being a feeling person you invite someone else to care, or, discover their limitations around human emotion.

You invite yourself to a place of honor and integrity.

Some people are incredibly uncomfortable seeing your emotions because if they experience yours, they’d have to experience their own, and some people work very hard to be numb.

They imagine they would have to break through their own glass wall to hug you, love you, and embrace you, and because glass is sharp, they imagine the pain of breaking through.

Behind the glass they remain, helpless, useless, and feeling worthless, still deluding themselves to believing it’s less pain to simply watch life go by and touch their fingertips upon the cold glass.

Look for the glass between you and the one you feel hurt by. It isn’t you that is broken.

I used to wonder why things are the way they are. I used to wonder why I had to go through what I did too………The worlds a messed up place, but I’m finding my way…..

Why do any of us go through what we have or seen what we have seen or felt, think or done? I’ve had along time to think about it and live it and sometimes not wanting to live it…………. I’m 51 almost 52 and here is my journey to here.

LIFE IS A TEST: QURAN(2-155) Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods, lives and the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.

This is my test, and testimony…….

I am a result of my mother being raped, I am a product of child abuse, plus various forms of abuse that followed me till I had the courage to say no more. I have lived more or less on my own since I was 13. I traveled off and on with carnivals through out Canada, USA, and Mexico for approx. 10 years. I finally settled down, for several years in a far northern town in Alberta, Canada in 1986. This is where my journey of healing and change began.

“Exciting Breaking News”
“By the mercy of Almighty God, Allah, and the hard work of the Muslim brothers and sisters of the North, the groundbreaking and pillings for the first Masjid of the Northeast Canadian Province of Nunavut has been completed, al Hamdulillah. Official permission for the masjid has been obtained and the local elders and authorities have given their blessings. The site will be covered till the snow comes off in June but this foundation will enable us to build the Islamic Center of Iqaluit in the land of the Innuit people (wrongly called Eskimos) for the first time. May Allah empower the Innuit people through Islam and bring into them into the Ummah in crowds.

You can still be a part of the project by sending our donations to:http://www.iqaluitmasjid.com.

All are welcome to the Arctic “in the summer” to our opening ceremony, Insha Allah. The Light of Allah will never be extinguished! “Nurun ‘ala Nur (Light upon light) will shine forever even though those who reject God despise it, Al Hamdulillah!!!”

Not very long ago, I was preparing myself to be a Christian soldier against Islam, fighting with my words, not by force. the Quran had been known to me as a dangerous book.
but when I read the opening of the Quran, I could not stop the tears. I learned there was much peace that comes from reading this book of God. I compared it to the bible, my questions ever increasing. Why did I worship Jesus all this time when, even in the bible, Jesus clearly instructs the crowds to worship the one true Lord, and to serve him only (Luke 4:8).

My name is Yusuf Pitre
Born and raised Christian till age 12.

Age 13 I was orphaned by a drunk driver who killed my mother, father and brother, only leaving me Alive in the car. From that point on I denounced my faith in Christianity. From age 13 till age 23, I lived my life only for sex, drugs and playing music in bands, the worst music at that, I was into satanism and demonic music. My life was going nowhere. I was always depressed and felt like something was missing in my life, I hated being around people and had antisocial problems. Age 24 I Joined the US military, changed my life around, gave up the music and drugs. 2010 got deployed to Iraq, after the deployment things got worse for me, my people problems got so bad in US, that I needed to get away, my time with the military was almost up, so I found a job in Kuwait as a security contractor. There I started to meet Muslims, and started making friends with some of them, and from that I started studying Quran, at the time I was against all religions, but the more I read Quran the more my heart was opened. I started feeling things I never felt before, I started feeling peace in my heart instead of hate, my depression stopped, my life was changing fast for the better. After a few months of studying and feeling the difference in my life, I reverted to Islam, since then Allah has blessed me so much, Alhamdullilah. I am Muslim 3 years now, I live my life for Allah and helping others see true Islam. I have a page called (True Islam by Yusuf Pitre) on Facebook, plz check it out.
