A True Muslim
The follower of Islam is called Muslim. To be a Muslim is a great blessing of Allah. A Muslim who sincerely acts upon all the teachings of Islam is called a true Muslim. In a hadith, it was once asked from Rasulullah (SAW): “How will I know that I have become a Mumin?” Rasulullah (SAW) answered: “When your heart feels satisfied because of any of your good act and mourns about any of your wrong doing, then know, you have become a true Muslim, i.e., Mumin.” To us both of the terms look alike, but keep in mind they aren’t, for you shall also see the difference from the Quran. A Muslim is a person who embraces Islam by saying the Kalima Tayyiba and with a keen belief that Allah is one; no God except Him and Muhammad (S.A.W) is His last Apostle. Whereas a person becomes Mumin when this knowledge penetrates deep into his mind, heart and soul. Allah Almighty has described 13 main qualities of such dignified persons in Surah Al- Furqan they are as under: * Believer of Allah: Such persons believe in Allah Almighty and declare no assistant with Him whatsoever. We have seen many people saying and believing in Allah fully yet whenever they are in trouble they seek help from others. This is in fact Shirk that has been entailed in the last sermon of Rasulullah (SAW). A Mumin turns only to Allah for help and demands only from Him. I shall quote here words of Hadith Qudsi, “There is no such thing that any person can give you unless Allah imputes and no such thing any person can take away from you unless Allah wills. No greatness of any person, whatsoever, is greater than that of Allah and none can save you from evil doings except His might”. * Humble: Another quality of such persons is that they are humble, i.e., free from any sort of pride and arrogance. They walk very humbly, talk humbly hence humbleness is a part of their life. Pride is something that Allah has forbidden upon humanity, it’s in a Hadith Qudsi, “Pride is my cloak, and whosoever tries to...

OCCURANCE OF CHROMIUM:
Chromium is a heavy metal which is considered as an environmental pollutant (Nafish et al, .2012). It is 7th most occurring element on earth and its average concentration in the earth is about 100mg/kg. (Panda and Choudhory, .2005). Apart from its importance chromium causing serious hazards for those organisms and plants that are exposed to the chromium in polluted areas of high concentrations. Being highly toxic metal it mainly comes from leather tanning, textile and electroplanting industries (Stern, 1982).As a result of smelting process, chromium is also found in air as aerosol. (Kimbrough et al., 1999). By the use of water wastes and industrial effluents, soil pollution is increasing day by day due to chromium contaminants present in the soil usually in urban areas (Mushtaq & Khan, 2010).
Chromium occurs in different oxidative states like trivalent Cr (III) and hexavalent chromium Cr(VI). Both these states differ in different aspcets like mobility,bioavailabilty and toxicity (Shanker et al,.2005;Panda and Choudhory, .2005). Toxic effects of chromium highly depend on the different states of the oxidative states. As the solubility and toxicity of the trivalalent chromium Cr+3 form is less than hexavalent chromium Cr+6 form ( Pandey and Sharma,. 2003).
Hexavalent chromium is converted to trivalent chromium when it reacts with matter of organic nature, Fe (II), and sulfides and this is facilitated by the manganese oxides....
...Today I am going to discuss whether we are true servants of Allah. Many of us say that we are Allah's servants but do are actions really confirm it. There are three ways in which we can check if we really are the true servants of Allah. First we must know that he is our master and we are his slaves and we are entirely devoted to him. Secondly, we should only do those actions which will earn his pleasure and stay from the actions which will make him angry. Third, we must know that all our possessions belong to Allah and therefore we should us it as he has commended. Coming back to the first point that we are his slaves and he is our master we must realize that as his slaves we must always submit 100% to the will of Allah. There is a story recorded in history in which a very well mannered and understanding slave saw that his master was very worried. The slave asked his master why he was so sad. The master responded that he had a high debt but no money to pay them off. The slaves suggested that he should be sold in the market and use the money pay off the debts. The master refused because his debts were so high that even if he were to sell the slave it would not be enough to cover his debts. So the slave said to set the price at the amount of the debts and if anyone asks questions regarding the high price then to just tell them that this slave knows the rules relating to servitude and being a slave very well. So the master went to the market and...

The six basic faith affirmations
Muslims have been taught to practice their religion through these six basic faith affirmations. This religion was instituted through a prophet named Mohammed and his Muslim people. Muslims believe that these six basic faith affirmations are very essential to the religion and obtaining God’s Grace. Muslims believe there is only one God and the word for God is Allah. This brings us to the first basic faith affirmation, the belief in Allah. It is said in the book ok Quran that, “He is the One God. God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of All Being. He begets not, and neither is He begotten; and there is nothing that could be compared with Him” (Quran 112: 1-4). The purpose of this first affirmation is to recognize Allah and His almighty power. Once Muslims understand the power of Allah and that He is the one who they should be following they can truly devote all of their worship and praise to Him and Him alone. It is important to understand the difference in how Muslim’s view God and how other Christians view God. Other Christian view God as the trinity, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost, while Muslims view God as beyond our sight and understanding. This concept is further explained in the Quran where its states, “Indeed, they disbelieve who say, “God is the third of three (in a trinity),” when there is...

Radicalized Muslims, Conflict with the West and True Islam
California Miramar University
Terrorism and violence in association with a slice of the Muslims of today have become an increasingly visible phenomenon. It is a quandary that – on one hand - has left much of the western world affected with fear, anger, resentment, distrust and trillions of dollars of expenditure on a perpetual war on what appears to be an elusive terror (Stein, 2011, Amandeo, 2013). One the other hand, the same practice of violence, has also left a scar on the majority of the followers of the true Islamic faith and the correct teachings of the Quran. These majority followers of Islam, including their religious leaders and Imams, have been viewed by the west as too silent and lacking in initiative to “stand up” for their “misguided” brethren, and in extreme reactionary cases, they have been viewed as “sleepers” (Christopher, 2013)
The effort of this case study will attempt to discuss certain aspects of this “conflict” and provide several components that are essential to understanding the history and the emergence of Islamic terrorism as well as an effort to dispel common misconceptions about true Islam and the true teachings of the Quran. A cause-and-effect analysis of some of the major historical events and turning points...
...“Define the term Muslim and Islam?”
In Arabic, the word “Islam” means submission or surrender to God. However, it was derived from the root word “salam”. From this root word, you can also derive the word peace. Many people feel that Islam implies some sort of enslavement to Allah, but others find it more helpful to define the word “Islam” as surrender. Many religions have a concept of surrender to God. In Jewish history, when the ancient Hebrews obeyed God’s commands, they had a long period of prosperity and stability. In Christianity, surrendering to God is a way of putting your life into more capable hands, in fact, Jesus asked many of his disciples to surrender their livelihoods and follow him.
When we look at the word ‘Islam’ in this way, we can understand why obeying Allah’s commands and trusting in Allah’s wisdom could bring about peace for a Muslim. The word does not represent a one-sided relationship, where the believer is enslaved to Allah. Rather, the word Islam indicates a covenant or promise between Allah and his followers, where a Muslim surrenders his or her will to Allah in return for peace or safety. This submission requires a fully conscious and willing effort to submit to the one Almighty God. One must consciously and carefully give oneself to the service of Allah. This means to act on what Allah enjoins all of us to do in the Qur'an and what His beloved Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) encouraged us to do.

Muslim Mosque vs. Christian Basilica
There are many differences between the muslim and christian Basilica as well as many similarities. They also have so many things that make them unique in their own way. Taking a further look at each belief helps us have a clearer understanding of the Mosque and the Basilica.
The word Islam is Arabic and means "submission to the will of God." Islam teaches that one must submit to God in Arabic in order to achieve true peace of mind. Allah is God, the same God Christians and Jews worship.The word Muslim means one who submits to the will of God, regardless of race, nationality or ethnic background. Muhammad is believed to be the final prophet. Human beings are not believed to be sinful, but are seen as capable of both good and evil. Muslims believe God has given people free will. It is known “One's deeds and actions measure one's faith”. Islamic teachings encompass all aspects of life and ethics; consciousness of God is encouraged in all aspects of human affairs. Worship in Islam is not limited to religious rituals. Muslims believe the Qur'an has been perfectly preserved in both its words and meaning in a living language. God's final revelation to humankind was publicly recited in front of both Muslim and non-Muslim communities during the lifetime of the Prophet.The Qur’an's main message is submit...
