A Segment by Ali Asif Rasheed




Hafiza Anam Aftab Khan, daughter of Mr. Aftab Ahmed Khan (Late) and niece of Engr. Iqbal Ahmed Khan has Mashallah completed her Hifz of Quran Al-Kareem from "Jamia-Tus-Saadat" Hyderabad Pakistan. She has done her hifz in two years time at the age of Eleven


My parents brought some land in Jhelum Pakistan around ten years ago. The have the deeds relating to the land but apparently something called an 'Intiqal' was not done. What is this? How can I get one done? My father is
now traveling to Pakistan to sign over the land to my eldest brother...my mother cant go due to health reasons....Would a general Power of Attorney
(such as the one on your website) be enough to grant my father power to sell the property on behalf of my mother?
I thank you for your help and hope to hear from you soon Insha-Allah
Saalams,  Shabaz
 

Intiqal means  "transfer/mutation" in legal terms which confers title of property to transferee/buyer of the property. Your parents first should proceed with this legal mutation and when the property is mutated in the name of the mother only then any transfer of the said property can take place to your elder brother. Power of attorney  would be legal but first the said property should be mutated in the name of your mother who intends to transfer the property.

FISH OIL Hope
Fish
For Brest Cancer

A combination of the fatty oils found in fish and a commonly used anaesthetic may form the basis of effective new drugs to treat breast cancer.
Researchers from Indiana University mixed compounds from omega-3 fatty acids with the anaesthetic propofol.
Together they appeared to reduce the growth of breast cancer cells, their ability to spread around the body and to form secondary tumours. The research is published in the journal Breast Cancer Research. The Indiana team studied the effect of two omega-3 fatty acids - docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Both have a minimal effect on cancer cells when applied alone. But the researchers combined them with propofol, which was already known to inhibit cancer cell migration in a limited way. They found that both the propofol-DHA and propofol-EPA combinations had a much more pronounced effect. Not only did they block cell migration and the ability to adhere to potential new tumour sites, they also triggered some cells to commit suicide. It is thought the fatty acids help to increase the absorption of propofol by the cancer cells. Lead researcher Professor Rafat Siddiqui said it might eventually be possible to develop a patch or ointment containing the combination drug. He told the BBC News website: "We would like to synthesize these compounds in larger quantities to use on animals in future studies so that we can test their effectiveness as a potential anti-cancer drug.
Many benefits

Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in oily fish such as tuna, salmon, herring, sardines and mackerel, are already known to have many positive health benefits.
They are commonly recommended for maintaining a healthy heart, as they are known to reduce cholesterol levels. Research suggests they may also protect against arthritis, lupus, and asthma and help people with bipolar disorder. Dr Sarah Rawlings, of the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer, said: "The potential of mixing these two compounds to enhance their anti-cancer properties is interesting. "However, this research was carried out in cells and we don't yet know what the effect will be in women with breast cancer."
Ed Yong, of Cancer Research UK, echoed those comments, describing the findings as "promising".

A Story by Syeda Mehrunnisa
 

 FATHER
Assalam-O-Aliakum
 

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

~ Author Unknown

Dear friends, as you must have made out from the poem above that this article is a dedication to all the fathers in the world for their unselfish devotion and care they show to their children.
Mother and father have a special place in the life of every person. Parents are indeed nature's unparalleled gift. No one can take the place of them. Once a companion of Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) asked him, "Who am I most obliged to". The Holy Prophet replied," Your mother" .He repeated the question three times and each time the answer was same. When he questioned again for the fourth time, Hazrat Muhammad (p.b.u.h) replied, "Your father".
Parents give unconditional love and care to their children. When their children are sick, they stay up all night stroking the fevered brow of their sick child or putting cold pads to lower his fever.  Their pleasure in their children's happiness is obvious. The hard toil of a father at workplace is just for his family. He wants the best for them…best food, best clothes, best education…everything that is best. And he puts in all his efforts, sacrifice all his pleasures just, for the comfort of his family. We shall we grateful to our fathers for all this and much more.  We cannot repay any of it. But we have some things we can do to make them glad. It is our happiness, our smiles, our achievements, our good manners that are rewards they desire from their children.
All the four Holy books order mankind to show respect to parents. In Quran, at many places, the worship of One Allah Almighty and obeying parents have been said together, thus emphasizing its importance.
All of us can do much to make our father feel happy. They deserve it. When your father returns home after a weary day in office, too tired…He opens the front gate to be greeted by his children with their radiant smiles, his all day fatigue goes off.  And if he finds his children with a face without smile, it would only add to his tiredness.  So be ready to welcome your father back home with a gleaming smile, nice grades etc. Do not let your parents down by showing bad manners or other deeds that can make their head stoop down. Make them proud of yourself. Masalama
