A Segment by Ali Asif Rasheed
Assalaam-u-Alikum, Could you please advise me
on the basic principles of distribution of inheritance among
the legal heirs according to Pakistan's Islamic laws. We are
four brothers, One sister and a mother. Our Late father died
in 2002 and left property behind in Pakistan. I will
appreciate a detailed response.
Amir Rather, UK
According to Islamic
law, wife gets 1/14 and sons get double the amount of
daughters' inheritance. In olden days when there were annas in
one rupee, wife got 2 annas and the rest of the heirs got from
the residue according to mathematical calculations of sons
getting the double available to daughters. The specific shares
are given in Sura Nisa of Holy Quran.

1. Prepare the seekh kabab mixture according to the
instructions. Mold the mince mixture into kabab and put aside.
2. Heat oil in a heavy based pan and stirring
frequently, fry the onions to a light brown color. Add the
tomatoes, chili powder, salt, coriander powder, garam masala,
chat masala and turmeric. Stir well. Still stirring
frequently, fry the onion mixture for about 7-8 minutes or
until the tomatoes are reduced to a pulp. Add a little water,
to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Keep
frying until the oil begin to separate.
3. Place the kabab carefully in the sauce. Cover and
simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes so they absorb some of
the sauce. Add little water if necessary.

Diet Tips and Secrets for Success
1. If you have muscle cramps
and brain fog during Atkins diet, remember that potassium is
an important mineral that gets flushed out of the body
quickly. Put down the banana (NO fruit during induction) and
take 90 mg of potassium supplement. It will start to work
within an hour.
2. Eat enough calories. Try to get 8-10 calories per pound of
current body weight every day. Some Atkins diet follower even
recommend as many as 12 calories per pound. If you consume too
few calories, your body will go into "starvation mode" and
weight loss will slow or stop.
3. No low-carb shakes or bars during Induction, they stall or
stop weight loss in most.
4. If you must have no-carb chocolate, heed the warning on the
label. Excess consumption is the whole bar. Eat ONE small
piece at a sitting until you know how isomalt affects you. Be
aware that no-carb candy slows weight loss in most and stops
weight loss in some.
5. Some people do better on NutraSweet (Aspartame) than on
Splenda. If Splenda gives you headaches during Atkins diet,
6. Remember that Atkins diet is all about learning how
different foods affect you so that you can decide which foods
to remove from your diet and which you may enjoy regularly.
7. Drink enough water. At least 68 ounces per day. Some
recommend 100 ounces per day, and Atkins diet enthusiasts like
to say "Drink half as many ounces of water each day as you
weigh in pounds." Drinking your water aids in lipolysis and in
eliminating ketones. Yes, you do literally urinate you fat
8. Use ketostix regularly, at the same time, every day. Any
color on the stick means you are in ketosis. Darker does not
mean better, it means you need to drink more water.
9. Caffeine slows or stalls weight loss in some, but not all
people. If it doesn’t affect your weight loss, have your
coffee in the morning.
10.Remember that those who have followed the Atkins WOE will
have far better muscle and bone density than those who
haven’t. You may end up weighing 20 lbs more than the next
size 8, but you’ll be just as small! Size is what matters!

Asian Earthquake Warning |
This news clip is inserted before the 29th
A build-up of stress on faults in Sumatra following the
Indonesian earthquake is likely to trigger another large quake
and perhaps a tsunami.
is the claim made in Nature by a team from the University of
Ulster, UK. The slip that caused last year's devastating quake
placed increased stress on the Sumatran fault and on the
adjacent undersea Sunda Trench. A new rupture could trigger a
magnitude 7-7.5 quake on land and a magnitude 8-8.5 quake
beneath the sea, they say.
The 2004 earthquake occurred when the deep, flat Indian plate
slipped under the Burma plate. Major earthquakes tend to
cluster in these subduction zones where two or more plates of
the Earth's crust grind and overlap. When a quake takes place,
the displacement causes the surrounding crust to become
distorted. This places stress on other fault lines and
structures in the area. Researchers from the University of
Ulster at Coleraine used information about displacement
following December's magnitude 9.0 quake to calculate the
stresses it placed on the surrounding region.

Thai king aims high
Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej is to oversee personally an
artificial rain-making project in a bid to end a severe
drought in the country.
He is expanding a cloud-seeding technique
he patented in 2002, which involves aircraft releasing a
chemical into clouds to induce rainfall. He suggested the idea
as most of Thailand's 76 provinces face their worst drought
for several years. An additional 17 aircraft have been drafted
in for the scheme. It has also been expanded from 10 to 22
bases across the country.
"The king has set up a centre for rain-making at Hua Hin [his
seaside residence] and will personally command the centre to
help alleviate drought," Deputy Agriculture Minister Newin
Chidchob told the AFP news agency.
Cloud-seeding involves firing particles, usually silver
iodide, into clouds to encourage water vapour to gather round
them and eventually fall as rain. King Bhumibol Adulyadej's
technique involves using two aircraft to seed warm and cold
clouds at different altitudes. This technique is said to be
particularly successful because it can more precisely target
areas where the rain is to fall. The monarch is said to have
suggested his rain-making technique after expressing his
concern about the drought during a meeting with Prime Minister
Thaksin Shinawatra. The drought has affected more than 8.3
million people, and 10 areas in the northern province of
Chiang Mai have been declared disaster zones. It also hit
Thailand's fourth quarter economic results by significantly
affecting output in the agricultural sector.

There is an article in the English textbook of Intermediate,
where the writer has expressed his special happiness that he
felt as a student on the last weekday each week. Most of us
experience the same. After all, weekends provide with the
desired break from the tiring, hectic and monotonous routine
of weekdays. The writer has further written about the
gloominess he felt on the first day of every work week. Once
again, many of us will also find ourselves in the same
category. Perhaps, this is universally observed thing; no
wonder we hear the term TGIF- Thank God its Friday (Friday
being the last weekday in most of the countries).
There is nothing wrong in being excited about the weekends and
the relaxation they bring with them. However, the work week
shall also be received with thrill. Yes, yes… you are asking
what is there to be glad about workweek, when what lies ahead
of it are full five days of work and load, piles of homework,
peer competitions and assessments. The answer is simple. Think
of those children who are deprived of their right of going to
school. There are plenty of kids out in the world who have not
been to school ever. The reasons for it are many. Some
children are not able to go because of the deplorable
financial condition of their family. Some poverty stricken
families have to send their children to work and earn rather
than sending them to school to learn. Some third world
countries have villages that host no school. The children of
such areas are hence unable to attend school. Some families
simply do not allow their girls to go to schools/colleges.
There are many children who long to be able to go to school
but their circumstances do not permit. They pray to get an
opportunity to be able to learn and enjoy the school life.
Have you ever noticed the children at the road sides, with
selling commodities in their hands, wistfully looking at the
passing cars and school vans carrying students to and back
from school? Often we fuss and nag about things that so many
others are praying for. The workweek hence shall not be met
with apathy. Rather we shall be thankful to God for providing
us the opportunity to attend school. School has so many
excited things about it. We meet our friends; we benefit from
what is taught to us by the dedicated teachers; we have
exciting school function to participate in and enjoy. The list
of nice things about school is long. It is just the attitude
that needs to be changed. Every picture has two sides. It is
how we view- that matters.
So dear folks, do not be sad after the weekend. Rather be
thankful to the Lord for the opportunity you are being blessed
with. Have a nice workweek!
Till next time…
