Who was First

A study of medieval Islamic art has shown some of its geometric patterns use principles established centuries later by modern mathematicians. Researchers in the US have found 15th Century examples that use the concept of quasicrystalline geometry. This indicates intuitive understanding of complex mathematical formulae, even if the artisans had not worked out the underlying

theory, the study says. The discovery is published in the journal Science. The research shows an important breakthrough had occurred in Islamic mathematics and design by 1200 AD. The Islamic designs echo quasicrystalline geometry in that both use symmetrical polygonal shapes to create patterns that can be extended indefinitely.

“It’s absolutely stunning,” Harvard’s Peter Lu said in an interview. “They made tilings that reflect mathematics that were so sophisticated that we didn’t figure it out until the last 20 or 30 years.” Until now, the conventional view was that the complicated star-and-polygon patterns of Islamic design were conceived as zigzagging lines drafted using straightedge rulers and compasses. “You can go through and see the evolution of increasing geometric sophistication. So they start out with simple patterns, and they get more complex,” Mr Lu added.

He became interested in the subject while travelling in Uzbekistan, where he noticed a 16th Century Islamic building with decagonal motif tiling. Mr Lu, who designs physics experiments for the International Space Station, was in the region in order to visit a space facility in Turkmenistan.

Love or Lust

Love is getting of some-one into heart unnoticeably
Effort to make love is result of lust

Lover has a feeling of helplessness
Lust urges one to make other helpless

Lover wishes to be subservient to the beloved
Trying to impose upon love is due to lust

Love initiates from beloved though lover thinks it was generated in his/her heart
The feeling to make love is generally created by lust.

Lover is does not care about profit or loss
Wish to benefit comes from lust

Love is free from sexual matters
Lust arouses sexual urge

God guides to love. Satin induces Lust

The Four Days

Imaam Ibraheem an-Nakhaa’ee said:

“I have four kinds of days:

A day when I go out and meet someone more knowledgeable than me, so I learn from him, and that is the day of my benefit and profit.

A day when I go out and meet someone less knowledgeable than me, so I teach him, and that is the day of my reward.

A day when I go out and meet someone like me and I study and review with him, and that is the day of my lesson.

A day when I go out and meet someone below my level but he sees himself as being above my level, so I don’t talk to him, and I make that the day for my rest.”

Keep Smiling

Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind.

For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you can never get back.

Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts.

If anyone speaks badly of you, live so none will believe it.
