Hazrat Umer Bin Abdul Aziz
When we open the windows of history, we happen to see many inspiring personalities of Islam. Hazrat Umer bin Abdul Aziz is one of such great persons. He possessed a bundle of superior qualities. He was humble and meek in nature but could resist evils sternly. To assert truth was the distinctive quality of his character. He was very kind to helpless and the poor; but he was bitter enemy of cruel people. He bore every difficulty with a smiling face. But he was ever ready to provide extra facilities to his people.
Hazrat Umer bin Abdul Aziz enjoyed a life of luxury in childhood. Even in youth, he remained matchless in dressing and glamour. He had a great sense of beautification. He never wore a dress for the second time. He had a delicate taste for expensive perfume and pleasant fragrance. But in spite of all this, he never did any evil deed. He never did anything that could stain his lovable character.
Though he showed great qualities of character even before his caliphate, after becoming a caliph, there occurred a great uprising in his thoughts. He took radical steps to set the thing in right motion. He made arrangements for the return the unlawfully occupied lands and properties to their lawful owners. Many rich people and chiefs stood against him but they could not stop him from brining a rightful change. After become a caliph, he gave up wearing expensive clothes. He began to wear coarse dress, ate simple food and lived a hard life. He had become very God-fearing. He spent nights in the worship of Allah and kept on serving people during the daytime. After becoming a caliph, he never smiled and kept on trying to please Allah. He was so simple that a newcomer could not recognize the caliph sitting among the people. He was so caring that he never disturbed even his servants during their rest times.
Hazrat Umer bin Abdul Aziz never wore the same dress for the second time before becoming the caliph. Lying on his death bed, he...
...King AbdulAziz, founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
King AbdulAzizbinAbdul Rahman Al Saud (known as Ibn Saud) was a tall, imposing figure, a natural leader of men. He knew instinctively how to judge men and, as his rule progressed, how best to exploit the natural resources of his country for the benefit of his people. His achievement, the unification of many warring tribes all proud of their own lineage and traditions, laid the foundations for the modern state of Saudi Arabia. His success derived from his faith in Islam and his determination to maintain and build on the traditions of the region. It is the unique combination of faith and respect for tradition, while adapting to the technological developments of modern world, which characterizes the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today.
The judgment of Chambers Biographical Dictionary is very much to the point. It simply states that Ibn Saud "was the outstanding Arab ruler of his time."
AbdulAzizbinAbdul Rahman Al Saud: The Early Years
AbdulAzizbinAbdul Rahman Al Saud (Ibn Saud) was born in Riyadh in 1880. He was born into the Al Saud family which, in the previous century, had consolidated its authority across much of the Arabian peninsula but, at the time of Ibn Saud’s birth, had seen its power greatly diminished....
...King AbdulAziz Al Saud
1876-1953 (1293-1373 H)
Born in the city of Riyadh, King AbdulAziz Ibn Abdul Rahman Ibn Faisal Al Saud was brought up under the stringent care of his father. A group of contemporary scholars were assembled to teach him the fundamentals of Islam. He soon began to show an impressive array of qualities and talents, including shrewdness, courage, farsightedness and horsemanship. He was able to grasp both current and historical events. In 1891 and barely 12 years old, he traveled with his father, Imam Abdul Rahman Ibn Faisal Ibn Turki, to Kuwait. In ten years there, he acquired the necessary qualities of leadership and statesmanship. Consequently, hedecided to restore the rule of his forefathers, whatever the obstacles. A new epoch was launched when AbdulAziz left Kuwait for Riyadh leading a small army of 60 men. This turned out to be "the small force that vanquished a big one, by God's Will."
The conquest of Riyadh occurred on the 15th of January, 1902 (5th of Shawal, 1319 H). Yet this was only the beginning of the "Jihad" campaign of King AbdulAziz. Saddened by disintegration and the state of anarchy, ignorance, poverty and disease in the Arabian peninsula, he resolved to unify the ranks of his nation under the banner "There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah."

...Asmaa bint Abu Bakr belonged to a distinguished Muslim family. Her father, Abu Bakr, was a close friend of the Prophet and the first Khalifah after his death. Her halfsister, Aishah, was a wife of the Prophet and one of the Ummahat al-Mumineen. Her husband, Zubayr ibn al-Awwam, was one of the special personal aides of the Prophet. Her son, Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr, became well known for his incorruptibility and his unswerving devotion to Truth.
Asma a herself was one of the first persons to accept Islam. Only about seventeen persons including both men and women became Muslims before her. She was later given the nickname Dhat an-Nitaqayn (the One with the Two Waistbands) because of an incident connected with the departure of the Prophet and her father from Makkah on the historic hijrah to Madinah.
Asma a was one of the few persons who knew of the Prophet's plan to leave for Madinah. The utmost secrecy had to be maintained because of the Quraysh plans to murder the Prophet. On the night of their departure, Asmaa was the one who prepared a bag of food and a water container for their journey. She did not find anything though with which to tie the containers and decided to use her waistband or nitaq. Abu Bakr suggested that she tear it into two. This she did and the Prophet commended her action. From then on she became known as "the One with the Two Waistbands".
When the final emigration from Makkah to Madinah took place soon aster the departure of the Prophet, Asmaa was...
...WHY WE CHOOSE UNGKU ABDULAZIZ?
It was not a quick decision for us to choose the right personality to be discussed in the Leadership Analysis. There are a whole lot of lists that we could choose for in the World’s greatest leader. The list ranging from Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Donald Trump, Hosni Mubarak, and maybe from a different point of view, Adolph Hitler. From local point of view there is also Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad whom is considered as a world greatest leader as well. We have the CEO of Maybank, Datuk Seri Wahid Omar, our Prime Minister himself, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Haji Abdul Razak, and the lists continues because a great leader comes with many achievements. It is hard to suggest one name that people could probably miss to make our analysis unique. The name popped up in our mind is Professor Diraja Ungku AbdulAzizbin Ungku Abdul Hamid. He is a Malaysia Economist with so many achievements there in his hand.
He wasn’t the one who like publicity. He rarely appears on the newspaper especially after he retires at 1988. But, his tremendous work was not to be forgotten. The list of his contribution to the country is so meaningful and continuous until now. He is a “guru” in the economic and education sector. A great leader he was, it was quoted by the University Malaya staff that he’d give them all his attentions and help when it was a legitimate concern. A great...

McShane and Von Glinow state that “the best organizational structure depends on the organization’s external environment, size, technology, and strategy” (409). To identify the best organizational structure for Protegé Engineering, I will first determine what ‘Organizational Structure’ means. In a second step I will analyze its elements and carve out the important components for the considered organization. Finally I will provide a conclusion and recommendation.
In general, organizational structure is related to the way that an organization organizes employees and jobs, so that its work can be performed and its goals can be met. McShane and Von Glinow define ‘Organizational Structure’ in more detail; they state that organizational structure “refers to the division of labor as well as the patterns of coordination, communication, workflow, and formal power that direct organizational activities” (386). To understand what this means we will have a look at each component. The division of labor is related to the “subdivision of work into separate jobs assigned to different people” (McShane and Von Glinow 386). The patterns of coordination refer to the coordinating of work activities between the employees where they divide work among themselves. This process requires coordinating mechanism to ensure the workflow, which means that everyone works in concert (McShane and Von Glinow 386). The primary means of coordination are informal...
...DETERMINATION OF LOS ANGELES ABRASION VALUE
(i) to determine the Los Angeles abrasion value.
(ii) to find the suitability of aggregates for use in road construction.
The apparatus as per IS: 2386 (Part IV) – 1963 consists of:
(i) Los Angeles Machine: It consists of a hollow steel cylinder, closed at both the ends with an internal diameter of 700 mm and length 500 mm and capable of rotating about its horizontal axis. A removable steel shaft projecting radially 88 mm into cylinder and extending full length (i.e.500 mm) is mounted firmly on the interior of cylinder. The shelf is placed at a distance 1250 mm minimum from the opening in the direction of rotation.

The aggregate used in surface course of the highway pavements are subjected to wearing due to movement of traffic. When vehicles move on the road, the soil particles present between the pneumatic tyres and road surface cause abrasion of road aggregates. The steel reamed wheels of animal driven vehicles also cause considerable abrasion of the road surface. Therefore, the road aggregates should be hard enough to resist abrasion. Resistance to abrasion of aggregate is determined in...
