From Eid al-Fitr Celebration

We’ve had a lovely (and relatively small this year) Eid lunch at my mother in law’s house few days back. It was busy as usual, with kids running around and playing, and people chatting and celebrating the end of the Islamic month of fasting, Ramadan. I’ve managed to take few pictures which I deem worthwhile, while plenty others were just […]

Ongoing Semi-Maintenance / Probíhající údržba

Sorry for the half-finished, half-not appearance at the moment, I’ve decided to take the blog out of maintenance mode to enable live testing. If you aren’t in my contacts on FB, yet you’d like to report to me any problems you might come across with the site (technical, not content), feel free to drop a line in this topic right […]

Eid Mubarak, from Ovenhill to You

Went out (after a month spent indoors, because Ramadan) today; well, if checking our building and whether it still stands is counted as outing. It does stand, bar few bricks which got blown out from a part of the wall. As we’ve found out by a casual stroll through that brand new neighbourhood, a lot of the houses suffered from […]

Clean

The day when the lice came. My waist long hair gone to shoulder, the rest of the household… well, on pics.

No wealth is more useful than intelligence and wisdom;
no solitude is more horrible than when people avoid you on account of your vanity and conceit or when you wrongly consider yourself above everybody to confide and consult;
no eminence is more exalting than piety;
no companion can prove more useful than politeness;
no heritage is better than culture; no leader is superior to Divine Guidance;
no deal is more profitable than good deeds;
no profit is greater than Divine Reward;
no abstinence is better than to restrain one’s mind from doubts (about religion);
no virtue is better than refraining from prohibited deeds;
no knowledge is superior to deep thinking and prudence;
no worship or prayers are more sacred than fulfillment of obligations and duties;
no religious faith is loftier than feeling ashamed of doing wrong and bearing calamities patiently;
no eminence is greater than to adopt humbleness;
no exaltation is superior to knowledge; nothing is more respectable than forgiveness and forbearance;
no support and defense are stronger than consultation.
(Imam Ali, a.s.)
