Item Description: Skyhorse Publishing, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Soraya M. s husband, Ghorban-Ali, couldn t afford to marry another woman. Rather than returning Soraya s dowry, as custom required before taking a second wife, he plotted with four friends and a counterfeit mullah to dispose of her. Together, they accused Soraya of adultery. Her only crime was cooking for a friend s widowed husband. Exhausted by a lifetime of abuse and hardship, Soraya said nothing, and the makeshift tribunal took her silence as a confession of guilt. They sentenced her to death by stoning: a punishment prohibited by Islam but widely practiced. Day by day--sometimes minute by minute--Sahebjam deftly recounts these horrendous events, tracing Soraya s life with searing immediacy, from her arranged marriage and the births of her children to her husband s increasing cruelty and her horrifying execution, where, by tradition, her father, husband, and sons hurled the first stones. A stark look at the intersection between culture and justice, this is one woman s story, but it stands for the stories of thousands of women who suffered--and continue to suffer--the same fate. It is a story that must be told. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781611450255

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. You want to be rich. Perhaps you plan to be very wealthy indeed. Who wouldn t? Talking about the pros and cons of being wealthy seems as one-sided as a boxing match between Warren Buffett and Muhammad Ali. However I ve been giving this some thought - inspired by my strange and unfounded fear of winning 56 million pounds in the lottery- and there are quite a few bad points. Don t get me wrong - it d be a nice problem to have. If you searched out the pros and cons of being wealthy as a sanity check before accepting a briefcase of cash, I say take the money! Later on you can come back and tell us how hard it is being rich. But let s start with the good points. The pros of being wealthy Unless you re very religious, contrarian, or you re visiting our planet ahead of the full-scale invasion from Mars, you ll know how great it is to have money. The esteemed rap poet Nas sums up the general picture as follows: Clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, Clothes that I try, close your eyes Picture me rollin, sixes, money foldin Bitches honies that swollen to riches. Mr Nas is a bit weak in rhyming the clothes he s trying with those that he s buying, but then he doesn t need to try too hard - Nas knows we ve all dreamed of being rich. He just has to flick the switch. At the very least, being wealthy gets you: -Financial freedom -Holidays anywhere -A great home -Funding for your pastimes and passions -Good suits -Great health care -A swimming pool full of girls in bikinis -Gold teeth Feel free to substitute your own desires. Personally, I d like an island. The downsides of being wealthy When I said this article was about the pros and cons of being wealthy, I meant it: having a lot of money has drawbacks, especially if you get rich overnight. I ve met a fair few rich people over the years, mainly through work, and I ve also read widely on the subject, and I feel confident in listing these negatives. (For clarity, I m talking about being really rich - 10 million / $15 million net worth or more). Money doesn t make you happy After a surprisingly low point, more money doesn t make you happier. Rich people get depressed, just like the middle classes. True, there s no evidence that money actually makes you unhappy (although one rich man is giving it all away) but it could distract you from fixing your real problems. The end of your goals and ambitions You see this with children born into money, as well as people who built a company up for several decades and sold too late to start another. When you have the money, what next? The trick seems to be to find a substitute to your old goal of achieving financial security. That s why you can t walk far in Africa without tripping over a philanthropist. Being judged unfairly People are very critical of the wealthy, especially here in the UK. In the US entrepreneurs are celebrated, but newly rich Brits will find many people waiting for them to fall. I ve seen it in work - a self-made man or woman leaves the room, and someone says well, he was lucky or he s out of ideas or even what an asshole. Not nice, but it happens.

THE FOX AND THE STORK A selfish fox once invited a stork to dinner at his home in a hollow tree. That evening, the stork flew to the fox s home and knocked on the door with her long beak. The fox opened the door and said, Please come in and share my food. The stork was invited to sit down at the table. She was very hungry and the food smelled delicious! The fox served soup in shallow bowls and he licked up all his soup very quickly. However, the stork could not have any of it as the bowl was too shallow for her long beak. The poor stork just smiled politely and stayed hungry. The selfish fox asked, Stork, why haven t you taken your soup? Don t you like it? The stork replied, It was very kind of you to invite me for dinner. Tomorrow evening, please join me for dinner at my home. The next day, when the fox arrived at the stork s home, he saw that they were also having soup for dinner. This time the soup was served in tall jugs. The stork drank the soup easily but the fox could not reach inside the tall jug. This time it was his turn to go hungry. A selfish act can backfire on you. THE MONKEY AND THE DOLPHIN A lamb was grazing with a flock of sheep one day. She soon found some sweet grass at the edge of the field. Farther and farther she went, away from the others. She was enjoying herself so much that she did not notice a wolf coming nearer to her. However, when it pounced on her, she was quick to start pleading, Please, please don t eat me yet. My stomach is full of grass. If you wait a while, I will taste much better. The wolf thought that was a good idea, so he sat down and waited. After a while, the lamb said, If you allow me to dance, the grass in my stomach will be digested faster. Again the wolf agreed. While the lamb was dancing, she had a new idea. She said, Please take the bell from around my neck. If you ring it as hard as you can, I will be able to dance even faster. The wolf took the bell and rang it as hard as he could. The shepherd heard the bell ringing and quickly sent his dogs to find the missing lamb. The barking dogs frightened the wolf away and saved the lamb s life. The gentle and weak can sometimes be cleverer than fierce and strong. THE FOX AND THE GRAPES It was a sunny day and fox was walking across the fields. Soon he came to a vineyard. As he came nearer, he could see some bunches of juicy grapes. The fox looked carefully around him. He had to make sure that he was safe from the hunters. He decided to steal some before anyone came along. He jumped upwards but he could not reach the grapes. He jumped again as high as he could. He still could not reach them. The grapes were just too high for him! He was not ready to give up. He backed off, took some running steps and leapt into the air towards the grapes. Again he failed to reach them. It was getting dark, and he was getting angry. His legs hurt with all that running and jumping. At last he stopped trying. As he walked away, he said to himself, I don t really want those grapes. I m sure they are too sour to eat. Sometimes when we cannot get what we want, we pretend that it is not worth having. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781502442321

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.You want to be rich. Perhaps you plan to be very wealthy indeed. Who wouldn t? Talking about the pros and cons of being wealthy seems as one-sided as a boxing match between Warren Buffett and Muhammad Ali. However I ve been giving this some thought - inspired by my strange and unfounded fear of winning 56 million pounds in the lottery- and there are quite a few bad points. Don t get me wrong - it d be a nice problem to have. If you searched out the pros and cons of being wealthy as a sanity check before accepting a briefcase of cash, I say take the money! Later on you can come back and tell us how hard it is being rich. But let s start with the good points. The pros of being wealthy Unless you re very religious, contrarian, or you re visiting our planet ahead of the full-scale invasion from Mars, you ll know how great it is to have money. The esteemed rap poet Nas sums up the general picture as follows: Clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, Clothes that I try, close your eyes Picture me rollin, sixes, money foldin Bitches honies that swollen to riches. Mr Nas is a bit weak in rhyming the clothes he s trying with those that he s buying, but then he doesn t need to try too hard - Nas knows we ve all dreamed of being rich. He just has to flick the switch. At the very least, being wealthy gets you: -Financial freedom -Holidays anywhere -A great home -Funding for your pastimes and passions -Good suits -Great health care -A swimming pool full of girls in bikinis -Gold teeth Feel free to substitute your own desires. Personally, I d like an island. The downsides of being wealthy When I said this article was about the pros and cons of being wealthy, I meant it: having a lot of money has drawbacks, especially if you get rich overnight. I ve met a fair few rich people over the years, mainly through work, and I ve also read widely on the subject, and I feel confident in listing these negatives. (For clarity, I m talking about being really rich - 10 million / $15 million net worth or more). Money doesn t make you happy After a surprisingly low point, more money doesn t make you happier. Rich people get depressed, just like the middle classes. True, there s no evidence that money actually makes you unhappy (although one rich man is giving it all away) but it could distract you from fixing your real problems. The end of your goals and ambitions You see this with children born into money, as well as people who built a company up for several decades and sold too late to start another. When you have the money, what next? The trick seems to be to find a substitute to your old goal of achieving financial security. That s why you can t walk far in Africa without tripping over a philanthropist. Being judged unfairly People are very critical of the wealthy, especially here in the UK. In the US entrepreneurs are celebrated, but newly rich Brits will find many people waiting for them to fall. I ve seen it in work - a self-made man or woman leaves the room, and someone says well, he was lucky or he s out of ideas or even what an asshole. Not nice, but it happens.

Rather than returning Sorayas dowry, as custom required before taking a second wife, he plotted with four friends and a counterfeit mullah to dispose of her. Together, they accused Soraya of adultery. Her only crime was cooking for a friends widowed husband. Exhausted by a lifetime of abuse and hardship, Soraya said nothing, and the makeshift tribunal took her silence as a confession of guilt. They sentenced her to death by stoning: a punishment prohibited by Islam but widely practiced. Day by daysometimes minute by minuteSahebjam deftly recounts these horrendous events, tracing Sorayas life with searing immediacy, from her arranged marriage and the births of her children to her husbands increasing cruelty and her horrifying execution, where, by tradition, her father, husband, and sons hurled the first stones. A stark look at the intersection between culture and justice, this is one womans story, but it stands for the stories of thousands of women who sufferedand continue to sufferthe same fate. It is a story that must be told. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN, Momence,IL, Commerce,GA. Paperback.

One of the more surprising demographic facts about Iran is the fact that 70 of the population is under 30 years of age. This simple statistic has molded Iran into an increasingly more modern society with a thriving and unpredictable student population. This population, who is often referred to as Iranian youth, has been strongly linked to the generation of reformist ideas surfacing in Iran. At 7:30 a.m. in Tehran the coercion of the security forces against the opposition had already escalated a point that was considered to be the most aggressive since the Presidential election. The Iranian civilians woke up to scenes in the street only fit for a movie. A city bus had been set on fire in the night and the smoldering wreckage only further illustrated the devastation that this country was experiencing. What seemed to be chaos at this point was only a small glimpse of the near future of the Iranian people. The citizens of Iran should brace themselves for the likelihood of more bloody altercations between the security forces and protesters on the streets of Tehran. By 10:25 a.m., the Iranian state television reported that 10 people were killed as the police and protesters clashed in the streets of Tehran in lieu of the protester s defiance to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reports said there were at least another 100 protesters severely injured during the clashing. More demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran during the afternoon. Women, youth, students and members of the moderate clerical establishment took to the streets in the thousands chanting and wearing the bright green campaign colors of Moussavi and showing support for the Green Movement.

Praise be to Allah, we thank Him, seek His Help and His Forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and that of our bad deeds. He whom Allah guides, is truly guided, and he whom Allah leaves to stray, none can guide him. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, besides Him no other partner is and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Messenger. When one is in suffering, or is befallen by catastrophe; when one is estranged and despondent and ultimately frustrated: then one unconsciously seeks the One Whose mercy is all-embracing. He is more Merciful than a mother to her child. His is the refuge we seek. It is He Who hears the weeping of the oppressed and accepts those who repent to Him. He showers His bounties and His blessings upon them. WA Q LA RABBUKU-MUD N ASTAJIB LAKUM INNAL-LADH NA YASTAKBIR NA AN B DAT SAYAD-KHUL NA JAHANNAMA D KHIR N Call on Me; I will answer your (prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell - in humiliation! Ghafir 60 By making du a, success becomes a reality; wishes and aims are achieved. That is because, when the servant truly believes that Allah is the only One Who is the Most Deserving to be asked and sought, he will shun all sources of help other than Allah . He will approach the Door of his Lord, seek His protection, entreat Him for His Mercy of treasures and His generosity. This is the essence of worship and the secret of obedience. On the authority of Nu man Ibn Bashir who said that the prophet said, Du a is worship. Then he recited the saying of Allah the Almighty. And your lord says: Call on Me, I will answer your (prayer). Therefore, du a is a form of worship, in fact it is one of the most honorable and glorious forms of worship. Allah ordered us to make du a: UD RABBAKUM TA ARRUAN WA KHUFYAH all on your Lord with humility and in privacy. Al A raf 55 He also reproached the people who do not make du a, saying: WA LAQAD AKHADHN HUM BIL ADH BI FAMAS-TAK N LIRABBIHIM WA M YATA ARRA N We inflicted punishment on them, but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor do they submissively entreat (Him). Al Mu minun 76 Sahl Ibn Abdullah said, Allah created mankind, then He said, Entreat Me. If not, look towards Me. If not, listen to me. If not, set yourselves before My Door. If not, ask Me of your needs. Allah said: AMMAY-YUJ BUL MUARRA IDH DA HU WA YAKSHIFUS-S .(He) Who listens to the distressed when they call on Him, and Who relieves their suffering.An Naml 62 The Prophet gave glad tidings to a man who was inspired with du a so that he would be among those who would receive the Mercy of Allah: he said: If the gates of du a are opened by man, the gates of mercy will be opened before him. And the most beloved thing for which Allah loves to be asked is safety. Tirmidhi and Hakim The supplicant also received glad tidings from the Prophet that Allah would keep him safe and he would have the privilege of du a being a weapon to fight the enemies and defend himself with: Du a is a weapon of a believer, a pillar of religion, and a light of the heavens and the Earth.

Excerpt: . . . chapter V. zaeda kuh to teheran. Seventy-four Farsakhs: Seventeen Days. 27th June, Sulaijan, 4 farsakhs; 7. 10 a. m. to noon. --We marched three farsakhs along the left bank of the river, past several holms where Arab cattle were pasturing. The Arabs live not in black tents but in square flat-roofed huts of reeds. They seemed poorer even than the Bakhtiaris, but their cows and heifers were many. We passed large spaces once covered with the crops of villages, but now open grazing-land. It is said that the Afghans destroyed 333 villages in Zarda Kuh, and the land has remained waste ever since. We left the river and turned up a defile called the Tang-i-gazin or pass of tamarisk. The river narrows after passing the mouth of the defile, and flows under high cliffs. It was in this defile that Rustam cut the forked twig of tamarisk which, when shaped into an arrow, put out both the eyes of Afrasiab at once, and gave the victory to the Persian champion. Crossing the heights, we came down on the river again. I was riding in advance with our Khan. We passed a horseman, armed and alone; some others rode nearer the river, half a mile below. The horseman spoke to me in Persian, asking my nationality and business, and then interchanged a few words in Luri or Bakhtiari with the Khan; who, riding up to me as we passed on, said, That man was talking nonsense. What nonsense I asked. He was saying that had I not been safeguarding you, he would have robbed you. I doubted considerably whether this was a correct version of their conversation; and Sayyid Ali, to whom the Khan subsequently narrated the incident, treated the thing as a fiction. We had now to ford the river, being here about sixty yards broad, with a strong stream up to the girths of the. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781230323077

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Praise be to Allah, we thank Him, seek His Help and His Forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and that of our bad deeds. He whom Allah guides, is truly guided, and he whom Allah leaves to stray, none can guide him. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, besides Him no other partner is and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Messenger. When one is in suffering, or is befallen by catastrophe; when one is estranged and despondent and ultimately frustrated: then one unconsciously seeks the One Whose mercy is all-embracing. He is more Merciful than a mother to her child. His is the refuge we seek. It is He Who hears the weeping of the oppressed and accepts those who repent to Him. He showers His bounties and His blessings upon them. WA Q LA RABBUKU-MUD N ASTAJIB LAKUM INNAL-LADH NA YASTAKBIR NA AN B DAT SAYAD-KHUL NA JAHANNAMA D KHIR N Call on Me; I will answer your (prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell - in humiliation! Ghafir 60 By making du a, success becomes a reality; wishes and aims are achieved. That is because, when the servant truly believes that Allah is the only One Who is the Most Deserving to be asked and sought, he will shun all sources of help other than Allah . He will approach the Door of his Lord, seek His protection, entreat Him for His Mercy of treasures and His generosity. This is the essence of worship and the secret of obedience. On the authority of Nu man Ibn Bashir who said that the prophet said, Du a is worship. Then he recited the saying of Allah the Almighty. And your lord says: Call on Me, I will answer your (prayer). Therefore, du a is a form of worship, in fact it is one of the most honorable and glorious forms of worship. Allah ordered us to make du a: UD RABBAKUM TA ARRUAN WA KHUFYAH all on your Lord with humility and in privacy. Al A raf 55 He also reproached the people who do not make du a, saying: WA LAQAD AKHADHN HUM BIL ADH BI FAMAS-TAK N LIRABBIHIM WA M YATA ARRA N We inflicted punishment on them, but they humbled not themselves to their Lord, nor do they submissively entreat (Him). Al Mu minun 76 Sahl Ibn Abdullah said, Allah created mankind, then He said, Entreat Me. If not, look towards Me. If not, listen to me. If not, set yourselves before My Door. If not, ask Me of your needs. Allah said: AMMAY-YUJ BUL MUARRA IDH DA HU WA YAKSHIFUS-S .(He) Who listens to the distressed when they call on Him, and Who relieves their suffering.An Naml 62 The Prophet gave glad tidings to a man who was inspired with du a so that he would be among those who would receive the Mercy of Allah: he said: If the gates of du a are opened by man, the gates of mercy will be opened before him. And the most beloved thing for which Allah loves to be asked is safety. Tirmidhi and Hakim The supplicant also received glad tidings from the Prophet that Allah would keep him safe and he would have the privilege of du a being a weapon to fight the enemies and defend himself with: Du a is a weapon of a believer, a pillar of religion, and a light of the heavens and the Earth.
