The Road Decorative of Pakistan

Image
The most striking thing in Pakistan is the vision of trucks and buses completely covered in a riot of color and design. They might spew diesel fumes, they may take up the entire winding, narrow, under-maintained road one is trying to negotiate, but they are certainly noticeable, like so many mechanical dinosaurs adorned in full courtship colors.

Miracle of Quran about Time!

RELATIVITY OF TIME ANNOUNCED 1400 YEARS AGO

To Him ascend the angels and the spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years.

He regulates all affairs from the heaven to the earth. Then they ascend to Him in a day, the measure of which is a thousand years as you count.

Throughout history, “time” was assumed to apply equally in every imaginable spot in the universe and in every medium. If we consider this conception, we can see the radical change that the above verses brought. The Quran said that, according to circumstances, the “day” concept might equal even up to fifty thousand years. These verses which must have encountered objections have been elucidated in the twentieth century and shed light on important truths.

Be Positive and Add 7.5 Years to Your Life:

Research shows that how you perceive aging affects how long you will live. In a study of 660 people, those with more positive perceptions of their own aging lived an average of 7.5 years longer.

Look Forward to Aging While You Are Young:

DIFFERENCE B/W MEN AND BRAVE MEN

Men who for truth and honor's sake
Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,
Who dare while others fly...
They build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky.

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES

The best armor is to keep out of range.


I have been truthful all along the way. The truth is more interesting, and if you tell the truth you never have to cover your tracks.



What children take from us, they give…We become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply, and love more deeply.



The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
