Healthy, Dead & Sick Heart   
Just as the heart may be described in terms of being alive or dead, it may also be regarded as belonging to one of the following three types:

The Healthy Heart 

On the Day of Resurrection, only those who come to God with a healthy heart will be saved. God says: 

"The Day on which neither wealth nor sons will be of any use, except for whoever brings to God a sound heart." [Quran 26:88-89

In defining the healthy heart, the following has been said: "It is a heart cleansed from any passion that challenges what God commands, or disputes what He forbids. It is free from any impulses which contradict His good. As a result, it is safeguarded against the worship of anything other than Him, and seeks the judgment of no other except that of His Messenger . Its services are exclusively reserved for God, willingly and lovingly, with total reliance, relating all matters to Him, in fear, hope, and sincere dedication. When it loves, its love is in the way of God. If it detests, it detests in the light of what He detests. When it gives, it gives for God. If it withholds , it withholds for God.

Reclaiming Islam  
It is hardly any surprise that a recently released poll in US finds that Americans are more than twice as likely to express prejudice against Muslims than they are against Christians, Jews or Buddhists. Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they have little or no knowledge of Islam. Still, a majority dislikes the faith.

Day after day news regarding Islam and Muslims bring new fears to the world. The daily episodes of suicide bombers killing themselves and scores of innocent people have become a staple of the headline news. Recently in Malaysia churches have been firebombed allegedly by angry Muslims who have assumed sole proprietorship of the Arabic word Allah; their violent objection to the use of the Arabic word for God by the local Christians in their liturgy is causing tensions and also headache for the Malaysian government and their judiciary. From Egypt the news of the killing of Egyptian Copts - one of the oldest Christian communities going back to St. Mark - by the Muslims for the usual excuse that we see in similar episodes of periodic violence against minorities in many majority Muslim countries, that of desecrating the Qur'an or insulting Prophet Muhammad. Violent protests in Kenya by Muslim youth over detention of a fiery preacher from Britain, riots between Muslims and others in Nigeria over imposition of Shariah law, is yet another example of how deep the confusion among Muslims themselves about Islam is. This reflects a profound lack of confidence among Muslims who having fallen from ascendancy 200 years back have continued in a downward spiral without the end in sight. It is being increasingly argued that Muslims when they are a majority are oppressive to others and when they are a minority they are troublemakers.

Real Plants?

Note: Lutfi is related to Mullah Nasriddin.

Lutfi used to water his plants daily. He would bring the container near the plants and pour from it. But no water would come out. But he kept pouring. His neighbor Fadi saw Lutfi doing this strange ritual often.

One day Fadi went over to Lutfi and asked, "Excuse me, Lutfi, I see you giving water to these plants everyday but I don't see water coming out from the container. What is this practice?"

Lutfi replied, "Let me tell you a secret, these plants are plastic."

Fadi is more confused and asks, "Then why is there any need of pretending to water these plastic plants?"

Lutfi responds, "So that people would think these are real plants."
