why do I taking photographs?

Photography is a visionel and educational hobby for me…I relax and feel more happy than before when I take photos…If you begin to capture landscape, portraits, flowers, birds, butterfly and etc. you can open your eyes and see “the beauty of created things” then you believe more and more than to the God and His miracles….When you take photos, you become a passanger who travel inner Universe, you see, you think, you thank to be…

The Arab or Arabian horse originates from the desert lands of Asia and the most famous are the horses of the Bedouin Arabs, known as the Original or Elite Arab. Through selective breeding the Bedouins developed an Arab horse which was tough and yet beautiful. It was these Arab horses that were used as a calvary horse by the Moslems and taken to North Africa and into Spain and France. Many Arab horses were left behind when the Moslems left and were left to breed with local horses creating such breeds as the Andalusian horse. The UK imported Arab horses in the late nineteeth and early twentieth century from Arabia.

He was the modest!

4616053-lg.jpg 

By the grace of Allah, you are gentle towards the people; if you had been stern and ill-tempered, they would have dispersed from round about you” [Qur’an 3:159]

About himself the Prophet (pbuh) said:
Allah has sent me as an apostle so that I may demonstrate perfection of character, refinement of manners and loftiness of deportment.” [Muwatta; Musnad; Mishkat]

By nature he was gentle and kind-hearted, always inclined to be gracious and to overlook the faults of others. Politeness and courtesy, compassion and tenderness, simplicity and humility, sympathy and sincerity were some of the keynotes of his character. In the cause of right and justice he could be resolute and severe but more often than not, his severity was tempered with generosity. He had charming manners which won him the affection of his followers and secured their devotion. Though virtual king of Arabia and an apostle of Allah, he never assumed an air of superiority. Not that he had to conceal any such vein by practice and artifice — with fear of Allah, sincere humility was ingrained in his heart. He used to say,

I am a Prophet of Allah but I do not know what will be my end. [Sahih Bukhari]

In one of his sermons calculated to instil the fear of Allah and the day of reckoning in the hearts of men, he said,

“O people of Quraish be prepared for the hereafter, I cannot save you from the punishment of Allah; O Bani Abd Manaf, I cannot save you from Allah; O Abbas, son of Abdul Mutalib, I cannot protect you either; O Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, even you I cannot save.” [Sahahin]

He used to pray, O Allah! I am but a man. If I hurt any one in any manner, then forgive me and do not punish me.” [Ahmed, Musnad]

He always received people with courtesy and showed respect to older people and stated: To honor an old man is to show respect to Allah.”

He would not deny courtesy even to wicked persons. It is stated that a person came to his house and asked permission for admission. The Prophet (pbuh) remarked that he was not a good person but might be admitted. When he came in and while he remained in the house, he was shown full courtesy. When he left A’isha (ra) said, “You did not think well of this man, but you treated him so well.” The Prophet (pbuh) replied, He is a bad person in the sight of Allah who does not behave courteously and people shun his company because of his bad manners.” [Sahih Bukhari]

He was always the first to greet another and would not withdraw his hand from a handshake till the other man withdrew his. If one wanted to say something in his ears, he would not turn away till one had finished. [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi] He did not like people to get up for him and used to say, Let him who likes people to stand up in his honour, he should seek a place in hell.” [Abu Dawud]

He would himself, however, stand up when any dignitary came to him. He had stood up to receive the wet nurse who had reared him in infancy and had spread his own sheet for her. His foster brother was given similar treatment. He avoided sitting at a prominent place in a gathering, so much so that people coming in had difficulty in spotting him and had to ask which was the Prophet (pbuh). Quite frequently uncouth, Bedouins accosted him in their own gruff and impolite manner but he never took offence. [Abu Dawud]

He used to visit the poorest of ailing persons and exhorted all Muslims to do likewise. [Sahih Bukhari] He would sit with the humblest of persons saying that righteousness alone was the criterion of one’s superiority over another. He invariably invited people be they slaves, servants or the poorest believers, to partake with him of his scanty meals. [Tirmidhi]

Whenever he visited a person he would first greet him and then take his permission to enter the house. He advised the people to follow this etiquette and not to get annoyed if anyone declined to give permission, for it was quite likely the person concerned was busy otherwise and did not mean any disrespect. [Ibid.]

There was no type of household work too low or too undignified for him. A’isha (ra) has stated,

“He always joined in household work and would at times mend his clothes, repair his shoes and sweep the floor. He would milk, tether, and feed his animals and do the household shopping.” [Qazi Iyaz: Shifa; Sahih Bukhari]

He would not hesitate to do the menial work of others, particularly of orphans and widows. [Nasi, Darmi] Once when there was no male member in the house of the companion Kabab Bin Arat who had gone to the battlefield, he used to go to his house daily and milk his cattle for the inhabitants [Ibn Saad ]

Stop the VIOLENCE!

stopviolence2.jpg

An Overview Of Our Programs

STOP Violence is part of Synergy Services, Inc., a Kansas City based non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the individual, family, and community through crisis intervention, shelter, counseling, advocacy and education. Prior to an October 2005 merger, STOP Violence was an independently functioning non-profit organization. STOP was founded in 1982 by violence prevention advocate and author SuEllen Fried. The merger with Synergy Services provided the STOP Violence programs more resources and a greater opportunity to thrive in the company of other programs and individuals with a similar mission and goal: the elimination of violence in our community.

Inmate Program
The STOP Violence Program for Inmates originated in 1982 when inmates at the Lansing Correctional Facility in Lansing, Kansas, judged a community-wide contest focusing on the prevention of family violence. This partnership led to the STOP Violence Program for Inmates, a highly successful inmate self-help program currently operating 10 groups in seven Kansas correctional facilities.

Incarcerated men and women run the meetings using a curriculum written by inmates that teaches life skills and helps them make positive changes in their lives. By breaking the cycle of violence they become contributing members of their families and society. Program participants routinely speak to students and other groups in their communities about choices and consequences.

Bullying Prevention
Bullying prevention programs originated at STOP Violence in 1990 when Jacque DeJesus and Barbara Unell created the “Kindness is Contagious…Catch It” program.

Our bullying prevention programs are implemented in schools, camps, day cares and other venues where youth congregate. These programs teach empathy and respect, and introduce youth to strategies that prevent bullying.

Our comprehensive program, Get Connected , works with youth, educators, and parents to build positive social skills, create an empathetic and respectful environment, and reduce bullying and peer abuse among youth.

Our STEP Up female bullying program focuses on bullying and peer abuse among middle school aged females. This interactive program addresses such issues as cliques, gossip, cyber bullying, conflict resolution and positive role modeling.

Courage To Be Kind, or C2BK, is a bullying prevention program facilitated in Jackson County schools in conjunction with DARE programs. This program is funded entirely by Jackson County COMBAT and reaches over 5,000 students annually.

Kindest Kansas Citian
The Kindest Kansas Citian Essay Contest and Banquet is a celebration of the wonderful impact kindness has on all of us. The essay contest allows students throughout the Kansas City area to write an essay about the kindness of an adult who has positively affected them. The contest culminates in the Kindest Kansas Citian Banquet, where we recognize and celebrate kindness in our community. The artwork associated with the Kindness program, as well as the line “Kindness is contagious…Catch It™” were developed by internationally renowned artist Rita Blitt.

Kindness buttons, a staple of STOP Violence are passed on to others when an act of kindness is witnessed. Elaine and Norman Polsky have provided thousands of these buttons to STOP Violence and many other kind individuals through the years.
