Learn about the life and legacy of our prophet Mohammed peace be upon him. If you can, watch the five part series. If you can't, at least browse the site. It puts modern day perspective on Islam. There are many sections in the site including: A section on women, violence and jihad, Muslims and America, Jews in the time of prophet Mohammed, and Koran. Let me know what you think of the site in the comments section.

I think that I get more spam than anyone on this earth! In the last month alone, I got 11196 (I got six new spams between the period of taking the screen shot and posting it on the blog!). I don't bother much with them. Gmail takes care of most of them :) If you get more spam, let me know... But I seriously doubt it!

I tried it! I was not happy with it at all :( Nags are not a good thing! Especially when it comes to security... In other words, don't try this at home... Say no to the security options thing when your Windows XP is updated with Service Pack 2. Furthermore, save all the stuff on your desktop somewhere else, because SP2 erases everything on your desktop, at least it did on my home PC!

I first saw pictures of the Autodrome at Elmasi's website and I couldn't believe that the race track was in Dubai. I saw the F1 track in Bahrain with Salama earlier this year and I was really impressed. I can't wait untill I get back to dubai and see the track by myself :)
