שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Cinderella

Posted By Snow at 10/16/2010 0 comments

In the Kingdom, time around midnight | happiest place
I saw the clock tower, but I can't remember if its the Abraj

I've read some people say the Cinderella story is unhealthy. But I love her patience in adversity! الحمد لله She was an orphan. She was lonely & unloved. Her only friends are animals. People call her names, treated very lowly. وشروه بثمن بخس دراهم معدودة وكانوا فيه من الزاهدين [Q12:20]

She had to work hard, while the pampered have fun.
But she still remain good & loving. يغفر الله لكم [Q12:90-92] سبحان الله

BTW, I don't wanna sound cheesy but I'm happy I rushed out of Masjidil Haram barefoot to catch my coach. (◠v◠) I didn't realize that it was like Cinderella until after this Ramadhan. It was a sad night, but kinda funny when I looked back.

The King of the Universe, and I the servant. Forever & ever.

Give thanks to the Lord, Allah SWT
for He is good His love endures forever

Visible & Invisible

Posted By Snow at 10/14/2010 1 comments

Visible light is the rainbow part in the Electromagnetic Spectrum | video

I have worked with lighting - it is a process to give color, shine & shadow in a movie like Toy Story. This process uses math to figure out the colors that will be seen on things. يتفيأ ظلاله [Q16:48]

With light, we can see things. الحمد لله

The Visible Light

We can see things when there is light. Light is actually an electromagnetic spectrum (EM). & our eyes have the ability to detect a very small part inside this EM spectrum - it is the rainbow part - so we see light as rainbow. We see light as the colors of the rainbow.

Say, when you look at a tree. What happens is, light from that tree goes to your eyes. Then your eyes & brain process the colors of that light - as an image of that tree in your mind.

When you look in the mirror, the light from you goes to the mirror, and the mirror reflects the exact same light back to your eyes. Then your eyes & brain process the colors of that light - as an image in yourself in your mind.

Light Travels

By now you should understand that light travels, it travels from things to your eyes. The speed of light is the fastest known in the universe - 186,000 miles per second - it can circle the Earth 7.5 times in a second. It's like the universe's speed limit.

Darkness

So, what will happen when there is no light traveling around? As there is no light coming to your eyes - your eyes do not process any light - so you see nothing, only darkness. وآية لهم الليل نسلخ منه النهار فإذا هم مظلمون [Q36:37]

Like this tree, it blocks the light so there is darkness in the area without light. Darkness is the absence of light. ومن لم يجعل الله له نورا فما له من نور [Q24:40]

Illusions

But on a funny occurrence, when there is light but it travels in a bended way, you can see things that does not exist. Light travels straight, but it can be bended. Like a mirage. It happens when the light bends as it travels between cold & warm air. This bending produces a displaced image - so you see water that does not exist, bcoz of the blueness from the sky. كسراب بقيعة يحسبه الظمآن ماء حتى إذا جاءه لم يجده شيئا [Q24:39]

The Invisible

All the things that we can see, thanks to the rainbow colors of light, is called visible light - which is actually a very small part inside the EM spectrum. There are other spectrums around - radiowaves, microwaves, infra red, ultra violet, x-rays, gamma rays - which are invisible.
You use these invisible spectrum when you listen to the radio, watch TV, use your handphone, surf the internet, remote lock your car etc. So the invisible exists, it's around us & it's HUGE. If you had a reel of movie film stretching 2,500 miles, the visible spectrum is only one tiny frame - the rest is invisible. [video] So just bcoz you don't see it, doesn't mean it's not around you. ماشاء الله

Muslims has a term called ghaib (غيب) - unseen & unknown. It is true.

اعوذب لله من الشيطان الرجيم
إن الله يعلم غيب السماوات والأرض والله بصير بما تعملون

Indeed, Allah knows the unseen (aspects) of the heavens and the earth.
And Allah is Seeing of what you do.
[Holy Quran 49:18]

Hanbok & Hanfu

The hanbok & hanfu
I the ancient dresses | QA Dress

Isn't the dresses lovely? ماشاء الله Still, the length needs adjustment, & of course for muslims, the additional hijab. In Islam, perhaps gold and silk can only be worn by women, men can't wear it. [AN6.48.5151] But we're promised it in the hereafter. ولباسهم فيها حرير [Q35:33]

I especially love the green dress. ويلبسون ثيابا خضرا من سندس وإستبرق [Q18:31]

Give Me A Sign

Do you understand me?
ألا تكلم الناس ثلاثة أيام إلا رمزا واذكر ربك كثيرا وسبح بالعشي والإبكار [Q3:41]

Hi friends! Have you heard... Alexander Graham Bell wanted to help the deaf. So he experimented on sound & discovered the telephone! Still, I'm sorry if my question is too much - but do the deaf even use the old telephone? Haaa haaa... OK never mind... bcoz now we have video cellphones & SMS. الحمد لله

After Alexander discovered the telephone, the telephone network is built across the world to send sound. Then this network is added with the modem to send data (& called the internet). Then the network became wireless & you can play the tablet while walking around.

Alexander also discovered the photophone, which sends sound on a beam of light. This pioneered the fiber optic communication & you can now download data from the internet in a blink of an eye, bcoz light travels very fast.

AG Bell launching the
telephone network line
from New York to Chicago in 1892

Loving The Deaf & Hard Of Hearing

OK Alexander is not deaf, but his mother was deaf. والله أخرجكم من بطون أمهاتكم لا تعلمون شيئا وجعل لكم السمع والأبصار والأفئدة لعلكم تشكرون [Q16:78] & he even married a deaf woman, Mabel Gardiner Hubbard - as a wedding gift, he gave her almost all of his shares in the newly created Bell Telephone Company. It's the company that would become AT&T - the 13th largest company in the world as listed by Forbes in 2010.

& after his passing 88 years ago, AG Bell lives on - aiding the deaf & hard of hearing. الحمد لله
