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....
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 trueMuslim.
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 trueMuslim, 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...
...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 enthusiasm of the Muslim members, nor has it stopped the Islam religion from growing. Obviously, with over one billion members worldwide, Islam is one of the largest religions in the world today.
What is Islam, who is Muhammad, and how does Islam compare to Christianity? If Islam was founded by a mere man, what motivates people to not only join Islam, but remain faithful members?
If one were to research the answer to these questions based upon media interpretation, the answers provided by the media would make Islam appear to be a religion of hatred and violence. On the contrary, as stated by Robinson (2007) the Islam religion is divided into many subgroups. Of those subgroups, “a very small, radical, hate-filled, extremist, Fundamentalist, terrorist wing does exist. So too does a much larger peaceful, moderate wing” (Islam: Is It a Religion of Violence or of Peace?, ¶3).
The lack of knowledge about Muslims by non-Muslims has caused a dangerous and growing unease between the two groups. Therefore, it is important to research carefully the Islam religion to discover what Islam has to offer (Miller, 2005).
I conducted my research on the Islam religion by using the Internet as well as the library. In addition, I visited a local mosque to experience firsthand a Muslim prayer service. Finally, I interviewed a coworker to discover an inside view of the Islam religion from someone who practices the...
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar; Muslims worldwide observe this as a month of fasting. This annual observance is regarded as one of the five pillars of Islam. The month last 29- 30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon. The word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ramida or ar-ramad which means scorching heat or dryness. Fasting is a wajib(obligatory) for adult Muslims, except those who are ill, traveling or going through menstrual bleeding. While fasting from dawn until sunset Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking and sexual relations; and swearing. According to Islam, the sawab (rewards) of fasting are many, but in this month they are believed to be multiplied. Fasting for Muslims during Ramadan typically includes the increased offering of salat (prayers) and recitation of the Quran. (Holy book of Islam).
In the Quran
Chapter 2, Revelation 185 of the Quran states:
The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed in the Quran; “ A guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, a number of other days. The lord desires for you ease; he desires not hardship for you; and that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify The Lord for having guided you, and that perhaps you be...

Christian and Muslim Religious Tolerance
It is ironic that while they are based on similar scriptures, and therefore similar ideologies, Christianity and Islam have had divergent attitudes towards the acceptance of religious minorities. By its nature, the Christian faith antagonizes other religions, including Judaism and Islam, because, according to Christian scripture, a lack of belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ results in damnation. TheMuslim faith, however, has a much more tolerant view on “People of the Book,” including Christians and Jews, since such tolerance is stipulated by Islamic scripture. Subsequent treatment (as opposed to acceptance) of religious minorities, however, was similar between followers of the two religions, ranging from relative social indifference, for example religious freedom in exchange for a tax, to extreme violence, despite differences in attitudes towards acceptance. It appears that, for the Christians and Muslims, the relationship between religious acceptance and religious treatment/violence is extremely weak, as the latter can usually be linked to political or economic motives.
Whether or not they advocated violence against religious minorities, Christians were most often unwilling to accept other religions. Even Saint Augustine, who advocated a peaceful attitude towards the Jews, called them “blind” and called upon Jewish (and therefore Christian) scripture to support his...
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...
