On knowledge sharing and dissemination

... when circulating a working paper for comments, never put on "citations only permitted with the permission of author"

or "no parts of this paper can be used without permission of author". Rather, say "when using parts of this paper please give proper citation and help yourself". Be delighted if someone wants to quote you ... (p.7)

Ammar ... and Al Faatih

 اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
Assalamu'alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
Alhamdulillah syukur ... for leaders who left us their legacy and history of being the best ... in iman and in their amal ...

age is just but a number ... may Allah SWT give barakah to each moment of our life, for every breath that we take and for every word that we utter ... ameen Allahumma ameen.
I was reading about the life of a young man Almarhum Ahmad Ammar ... who in death at 20 has started teaching us that it is not about age ... rather it is about strength of iman and character ... and vision for self and the ummah ...

in life he acquired ... and in death he gave ... May Allah SWT be pleased with him and station him among the pious and the shaheed. ameen Allahumma ameen.

Almarhum Ahmad Ammar led me to ... the best of rulers who led the best of armies ... Sultan Muhammad Al Faatih who at 19 led the preparation of his army to free Constantinople.
i like the following English version for children ... i hope we can keep on learning from the history of those who have paved the way to meaningful and just life ...

And for the adults :) here's a documentary in Arabic with English subtitle ...

  1. Ammar is one in a million... ramai sangat nak jadi mcm Ammar di luar sana which is good tapi he is gifted... no everybody can be like him...

    1. :) thank you NP for sharing your thought. True, he was Allah's gift to us all ... a life, loaned for a very short time ... in death we got to know him ... and that will last us a long long time insyaAllah ... hope is a powerful thing ... a hope that parents may understand these lessons of Ahmad Ammar and of Sultan Muhammad Al Faatih ... Thanks NP :)
