Sublime Character

 

 

 

[Kicking Off a New Series This Tuesday – Sublime Character]

We recently completed the Book of Assistance sessions on second Tuesdays of the month. Now it’s time for a new book!

Our Master Muhammad The Messenger of Allah – His Sublime Character & Exalted Attributes written by a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad himself, Imam Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni.

Often ranked the most influential man ever on earth, one summarised him as the only one supremely successful on both religious and secular levels. Surely there are deeper and inner meanings to his intense and immense greatness.

As usual, Peace Meal events are always free, including the light dinner. No registration required either. Spread the word, come!

First session is this coming Tuesday, 14th of August 2018, 8.00pm to 9.00pm at Mukha Cafe, TTDI KL.

Online Storage Areas and other technological innovations for your everyday life

It is an open secret that various people resist taking advantage of innovative technologies in their deal-making. To tell the truth, it is hard to understand on the grounds that it is no secret how useful it is to use the emerging technologies in their work. It is an open secret that this all is made for people to make doing business easier. For this reason, we decided to tell you whereby the NT can be useful for the day-to-day routine .

  • It stands to reason that you are able to store your info in the physical data rooms, free information warehouses, databases etc. On the other end of the spectrum, you are to turn attention to the VDRs . What are their possibilities? In the very beginning, you are free to store there plenty of large numbers of documents. Also, they will suggest your crucial data the unconquerable degree of safeness. The same as with the Interweb, smartphones and various programs, you are able to carry on negotiations with the customers but it will be more convenient. In cases when you need some info, you are free to make use of the sophisticated web search engines. It will be much quicker to search for the info in the Virtual Data Rooms than in the physical data rooms or databases. Likewise, you do not have to solve any severities since you have the 24/7 technical support for this aim.
  • It is self-evident that nobody can live without Web in the present day. People make use of the WWW for many purposes. With its help, we are free to download films, listen to music, communicate with people from different countries, store the documents etc. Likewise, one of the most popular ways of raising money is the business on the Internet. Nowadays, there are also diverse people run business on the Worldwide Net. But the corporations which are not connected with the Internet also need it due to the fact that it can be of use to the advertisement.
  • In our epoch, there is the large multicity of manifold apps. People may use them for fun and for their deal-making. Some programs let you have a deal with the business partners different corners of the Earth, some of them will be important for the advertisement, some of them will be important for getting statistics. Also, many of them can be available for mobile devices. It stands to reason that it is convenient since you may work independently from your place.
  • It is understood that all the people utilize the cell phones in these modern days. As a rule, they are used for communication. On the contrary, cell phones offer us the wide choice of odds which can come into play for the day-to-day routine. Also, there are also personal computers which have even more positive sides and can make your deal-making more efficient.

Finally, it is to say that it is hard to have a deal without any NT in our modern world and on condition that the world gives these new technologies to you, it is highly recommended not to ignore them. In such a way, you are in a position to save a lot of money inasmuch as instead of people, some work can be done by personal computers, cell phones, the Internet and Virtual Data Rooms dataroom . Further still, it can be accomplished any time you need it.

From Aristotle to Kitab Penawar – 24 April

Aristotle with other Hellenistic philosophers used medical models to explain philosophy. Imam al-Ghazali did so with the Islamic science of purification of the heart. From this wealth of teachings, came the tradition of modern psychology as well as Kitab Penawar. A fruit of Abdul Qadir al-Mandili, a 20th century Sumatran scholar, trained in Kedah and taught in Mecca.
