He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confident and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.
The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!
One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone."
Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No! ", replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?" "I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!", replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave." Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"
In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:
3- Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others.
2- Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
And our 1st wife is

Assalamualaikum wr wb.
Alhamdulillah, Ramadhan is here again and we are lucky to be given the opportunity to take full advantage of the rewards awaiting us in this holy month.
I would like to share with all muslim around the world about the advantages of sahur. I guess everybody is aware on the Sunnah and have heard or read about hadith on sahur. Some people feel very reluctant to wake up a bit earlier before fajr and would prefer to have longer sleep. They choose to eat before they sleep. Some feel that they can handle the hunger and thirst without the need to wake up for sahur. However, sadly, they fail to realise that sahur has more benefit than simply to prevent hunger and thirst. It is indeed essential that we view fasting and other ibadah beyond their physical benefit.
According to Ibn Hajar, sahur is blessed because of the following reasons:
1. It will make us practise the Sunnah of the Prophet PBUH.
2. It will differentiate our fasting from the ahlul kitab. Ahlul kitab do not wake up for sahur.
3. It will better prepare our body to do more ibadah.
4. It will increase our sincerity (ikhlas) in ibadah.
5. It will stop and reduce our anger which always occurs during fasting.
6. The time that we are encouraged to sahur is the special time for our doa to be granted by Allah.
7. It is an opportunity for us to be closer to Allah as it is during the final third of the night.
Look at how generous Allah SWT is! He rewards us just for waking up and eating. Subhanallah!
Let’s try our best to make this Ramadan a meaningful time in our lives and hopefully it will be a better Ramadan than the previous Ramadan.

Such stimulation enables the lymph system to release the toxins and waste products that natually occur within the lymph system. Lymph glands can become clogged with waste when a person does not move around enough to stimulate the lymph glands.

Sunscreen protection is very crucial for your skin. A good sunscreen lotion makes the skin soft and smooth. The main purpose of the product is to prevent the skin from sun damage. Apply SPF 15 or SPF 20 or SPF 30 if you want to protect the skin from the harsh effects of the sun.
Drink around 8 to 9 glasses of water daily. It hydrates the whole body and adds glow and glamor to the skin.
Regular sleep gives the skin healthy texture. At least 7 to 8 hours of sleep is necessary for all. In addition, don't take alcohol or cigarette if you want to enjoy a healthy skin.
that I have ever known.
Being away from you for so long
I am feeling so alone.
With you I am so happy
you keep my heart content.
But I had to be a volunteer -
so off to England I went.
That is where I found my heart
and how I feel for you.
I try so hard to deny this feeling
and I don't know what to do.
I said that I would never again
let someone take my heart.
And here I'm sitting wanting you
and hate that we're apart.
Everyday you are in my thoughts,
every night you're in my dreams.
I can't believe what's happening,
is this really what it seems?
I know you're only wanting
to be the best of friends,
but I am asking you sincerely
if it's your rule you'll bend.
To take a chance to know me
to let me share it all.
And maybe one day very soon
for me one day you'll fall.
Our friendship we now have
is something that I'd miss
but maybe once we let go
we will find eternal bliss.

1- Di hadapan orang yang kita cinta, hati kita akan
berdegup kencang. Tapi di hadapan orang yang kita
suka, hati kita akan gembira.
2- Di hadapan orang yang kita cinta, musim
sentiasa berbunga-bunga. Di depan orang yang kita
suka, musim itu cuma berangin sahaja.
3- Jikalau kita lihat di dalam mata orang yang
kita cinta, kita akan kaku. Tapi jika kita melihat
ke dalam mata orang yang kita suka, kita akan
4- Di depan orang yang kita cinta, kita menjadi
malu. Di depan orang yg kita suka, kita akan
tunjukkan imej yang sebenar.
5- Di depan orang yang kita cinta, lidah kelu untuk
berkata-kata. Di depan orang yang kita suka, kita
akan bebas berkata apa saja.
6- Kita tidak akan merenung mata orang yang kita
cinta. Tapi kita akan selalu merenung mata orang
yang kita suka.
7- Bila orang yang kita cinta menangis, kita akn
turut jua menangis. Bila orang yang kita suka
menangis, kita akan cuba untuk membuat dia gembira.
8- Perasaan cinta bermula dari kata. Perasaan suka
bermula dari telinga. Jadi, jikalau kita berhenti
menyukai seseorang yang kita suka umpama kita
membuang telinga kita. Tapi jika cuba menutup mata
cinta berbuah menjadi airmata. Setiap orang yang
hidup akan mengalami ini dalam hidup mereka.

I loved him privately
I didn't say what was within me
I don't know what's happening to me when I see his eyes
I no longer knew what to say
I don't know why I hid from him
I'm very weak when I'm beside him
And I submit to him
You are the most precious person to me
And my soul is in you
If you are before me my eyes long for you
You're on my mind and you don't know what's happened to me
And the nights are long years to me
Oh my preoccupation with every word you say to me
If the words were indicating some affection
I would say I've loved you for so long
Everyday the desire grows on me
It appeared on my mind and you don't know what's happened to m e

Narrowly,Hadhramaut refers to the historical Qu'aiti and Kathiri sultanates, which were in the Aden Protectorate overseen by the British Resident atAden until their abolition upon the independence of South Yemen in 1967. The current governorate of Hadhramaut roughly incorporates the former territory of the two sultanates. It consists of a narrow, arid coastal plain bounded by the steep escarpment of a broad plateau (al-Jol, averaging 1,370 m [4,500 feet]), with a very sparse network of deeply sunk wadis (seasonal watercourses). The undefined northern edge of Hadhramaut slopes down to the desert Empty Quarter.
In a wider sense, Hadhramaut includes the territory of Mahra to the east all the way to the contemporary border with Oman.This encompasses the current governorates of Hadramaut and Mahra in their entirety as well as parts of the Shabwah Governorate.The Hadhramis live in densely built towns centered on traditional watering stations along the wadis. Hadhramis harvest crops of wheat and millet, tend date palm and coconut groves, and grow some coffee. On the plateau, Bedouins tend sheep and goats. Society is still highly tribal, with the old Seyyid aristocracy, descended from Prophet Muhammad, traditionally educated and strict in their Islamic observance and highly respected in religious and secular affairs. Since the early 19th century, large-scale Hadhramaut migration has established sizable Hadhrami minorities in South and South East Asia, namely Hyderabad, Bhatkal, Malabar, Java, Sumatra, Malacca and Singapore.For example, several Indonesian ministers, including former Foreign Minister Ali Alatas and former Finance Minister Mari'e Muhammad are of Hadhrami descent, as is the former Prime Ministerof East Timor Marí Alkatiri. Hadhramis have also settled along the East African coast, and two former ministers in Kenya, Shariff Nasser and Najib Balala, are of Hadhrami descent.
