Sounds like, oh! just another third world country….going thru its early stages of history trying 2 learn democracy n so on. if i wud b staying abroad n listening 2.these facts w/o knowing the countrys name wud probably hav commented something similar or something like must b that poor country that gained its so called “independence” ruled by a puppet of the west. Who is also known rather publicized by the media almost 2 a level of celebrity while showing some of his brutalities, that u forget after cing a few of these documentaries, whether the msg was 2 learn how 2 b like them or 2 send yor local mps or senators a msg saying.stop these hypocratic acts. Imposing sanctions using the UN 2 buy their oil n gas @ the black mkt for less then half the price, paying off the puppets @ their swiss bank accounts n use base israel 2 sel them arms @ twice the mkt rate so that they can use these arms against their own protesting civillians. Then these r mostly shown as war prepared heros by creating a regional tension by the various offices of the fedeeal government n its policies of using crooked immoral diplomatic hypocracy within the region which r.all next 2 lies n deceits. With all these quickly running thru the mindI seen n known so clearly.growing up in a 3rd world country i wud start thinking it cant b my home country gone mad all of a sudden where civilizations with universities has been traced more than 2000 yrs bak. But unfortunatly the country now in news is no other but bangladesh.
I dont know how it started.whether academically as a economic theory or as a street talk, where americans say war is good bcoz it adds wealth 2 the nations coffers w/o.even considering that the immesurable value of a human life has been compromised probably with a.wrong war created somethere, where sometimes american boots r also in the ground n all for.wot? all.for in the name of maintaing n improving the lifestyles of mashallah a very resourceful n already wealthy nation.
Now, i ask americans wot sort of.god u.trust in that u print so proudly on yor currency notes that allows such immoral n hypocratic acts? do u think its rite n sustainable? Or it.just means that the nation blieves only in money god like the swiss now like 2 call the cross in their flag rather cork screw then wot it was meant.

It is mindless n logicless. politically inclined bloggers r bing killed in such a tolerant society. critics of religious extremism’s bloggers n religious movements bloggers – both sorts hav been killed in the recent past. both pointing fingers 2wards the others 2 accuse the cause of death. not only in the case of bloggers but also political activists fm both main camps r victims. here too they blame each other. the bottom line that serves here is the common majority that is already confused n shocked at these nurderous acts is getting more paralyzed due 2 this apparently invincible political gridlock, unnecessary violance n all pls get involved n make this an unprecedented bloodbath appeal like blame tricks while doing absolutely nothing 2 prove themselves visionaries, patriots, earnest negotiators of peace.
As if all r working hard 2 earn a nick name for Dhaka – u want 2 blog n die go 2 Dhaka ct. all talks about history not 2 take lessons fm itself but 2 shout at others 2 insult n instigate the others. Just talking n lowblowing like in a boxing ring dosent score here. it makes the greater population impolite. the blame n effects of which falls bak on the politicians
Dont paralyze the greater populations mind n body with actions with which u can fool some people some time but never all the people all the time. they r feeling a little nymb due 2 the too prolonged political violences but mashallah general population r much
more intelligent n religious then u or i might think. they blieve in the power n justice of allah. they hav seen how allah defeats n humiliates oppressors regardless of narionality n religion when people follow his shown path n seeks his help. For that u dont need 2 b a muslim country eg., vietnam but it also dosent hurt if u r a muslim country like afghanistan; 2 super powers – soviets, americans (even with nato n eu 2 baking them up) practically turned tales.
its time for us 2 hold each others hands not 2 point 2wards each other. the earlier the better. Last 2 times our hands.extended 2wards each other showed the world we hav the will, power, unity 2 perform miracles thru allah who made us independent in 1947 n farther more independent in 1971. this time too we will show the world again inshallah we can defeat all conspiracies hid bhind hypocracies, lies n deceits of evil ambitious certain nuisenses. please act respectfully n responsibly bcoz margin of error is allmost nill but allah helps those who.help.themselves as hazrat mohammad (saw) said. He also instructed through this hadis 2 hav strong bondage within muslims n ummah as well.
in other hadises he has instructed not 2 ignore or disregard kafirs living peacefully n law abidingly within muslim societies n give them the rite 2 practice their religion.
Recently germany was again in the news about challenging muslims obeying islamic dress codes. intl hijab/ nikab day’s blog was revamped n posted 2 several sites.
When a war crime is not properly punished this is wot u get. after grossly violating the jewish rites now they r again starting 2 show off their stupid arrogance by trying 2 violate muslim religious rights. This naked aggression against islam must b arrested now by dealing with it most severly. Punishing them if they ever attempt again 2 insult tihe muslims, their religion islam n its culture n heritage, and for these matters each n every country that tries 2 follow the footprint of hate n lunacy of germany shud also b severly reprimended. if at this nascent stage these scattered acts of prejudice n biogotry cannot b uprooted then its evil roots n branches will grow like gremlins, n the human race will b at the brink of destruction 1 more time.
These so called human nations r in fact shytwans factories n very much against humanity like shytwan. While under the protection of their liberal societies n so called democratic regimes these worst then illeterate intellectual thugs get the full protection of law 2 instigate n humiliate muslims. So savage n shameful irresponsible acts.
This human race does not need another blood bath 2 know the proper identity n intentions of these bad blood hunans. instead wot needs 2 b seen is monkeys put in cage n humans live in this planet peacefully with their freedom of choice n brotherhood of trust, respect, law n order.
US, UK, Nordic Europe, France, Germany n probably many.more western powers who brags on allowing individual freedom n rites r again the forefront countries that allways tries 2 create an issue 2 stirr the public emotion in order 2 ban hijab/ nikab of muslim women. Wot really pisses me off is that in this age of widely available very sophisticated but cheap technology where u hav a wide choice of person recognition tools like scanning of eyes, digital finger impression, even voice matching n who knows wot else, where does all these debate n worries come fm?
Had it been something like pro choice matters, all the civil liberties n rites people with all kinds of fancy slogan mixed plackards wud hav been out in the streets in support of their muslim “sisters” crying out for their equal rites n liberties. But no this is not obortion it is decency. Shytwan, in the long run, has plans 2 destroy humanity using both, meaning call obirtion a human rites issue n.defying allahs order thru sura nuur meaning light (quran ch 30) encourage indecency eventually 2 push human race 2wards the whirlwind of social chaos wherefrom nobody can save them.
Salam again 2 all muslimas who defy these shytwans friends trying 2 intimidate them using many things including judixial harassments. B strong, b an examplary muslima, never give in2 their threats n pressures, always ask help fm allah only. Inshallah u will soon find it isn’t u but the frnfs of shytwans r the 1s that r fearing the punishment of allah for diaobeying him.
Salam. Where i hav hilited nikab, although not mentioned, it implies to women exposed thru fotography as well specially in these days of internet.

Salam to the Allah fearing women in this so called World Hijab Day.
It was interesting to read all the different opinions on hijab. Looks like more or LESS we all love hijab, simply bcoz it starts with bing Allahs order thru ayat in Quran thus making it faraj (mandatory) for all muslim women when they come in front of por purush ie., man outside their immediate family members. These por purush r again clearly defined by Allah Himself thru ayats in the Quran. I wont go into those details here since one cud n shud look it up in Quran, in case she has forgotten the ayat.
I hav my observations n thots relating to hijab practised or sometimes made political issues in the context it is prescribed. I think this is a wonderful opportunity n forum to do that. Since this is an act direcrly prescribed by no one else but Allah Himself 1 shud b unambigious on its modus operandi, if i may call it.
Allah has repeatedly advised in the Quran to read it to b wise bcoz He has written it for intelligent people in fact for His ashraful makhlukat or the greatest amongnst His creations. Having learned that we shud first extract the thematics of Qurans direction on womens’ interaction with the society given by her “fashioner of shapes, forms aka Al Mushawwir (asmaul husna or qualitative beautiful names of Allah, #14)”. One who has created out of His best fashion n forms this beauty called woman, is the only 1 also to know how to keep it away fm profanity n allow others to cherish her to b numinous in wotsoever role she plays in the society bcoz she only seeks Allah’s satisfaction according to His prescribed path. We know that the manufacturers manual (Quran, in this case) gives, among all other solututions, the most preventive measures to keep harm away. So who other than Allah bing the fashioner, designer, creator n the only hedayat er malik (creator for roadmap of righteousness) can provide the best code of conduct for women?
Now, i will present to u all a very cunning act by shaytwan to cheat women wearing hijab. First let us look how it achieves that by simply making the woman forget that she has no authority to accept one ayat n reject other. Hijab n porda (por purush) ayats r not self sufficient but rather they r complementary. These 2 subjects together completes n makes hijab perfect. Accetpting one n rejecting other only results in as the Quran warns, anger of Allah.
He warns He had punished previous religions followers for the same reasons of not obeying n bing arrogant. This is also why iblis was made shaytwan fm bing a fereshta, astagfirillah (Allah pls forgive our sins).
Lastly but not the least the 1 who understands the theme of Islam thru the compassiionate calls of Allah in Quran n thru His best example for all human kind prophet Mohammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), cud easily figure out that while hijab makes women 2 b beautiful n responsible but at the same time it can hav dettrimental affects if abused in designs. Some designs although long gowns seems to b competing with skin tight jeans or skimpy tops. Then also bare faces (nikabless hijabs) draws more attention either it b for the curiosity or beauty or both. So it defeats the total thematic of Islam for porda ie., for the women to inshallah practice porda (for reasons explained above) n thru this practice help men not to fall into shaytwans seduction trap by first indulging into sins of sighting (numerous warning in hadis on this simple but very tricky sin). Lets not get into the worthless vanity arguments of pushing the blame on men saying they shud practice more eye n thot/action controls. Allah knows best with wot distinct instinct n nature He has created
men n women. That is why He has given different code of conduct for these two distinct but interminglinging groups within drfined limits only. Now it is onto us to study them carefully n inshallah thru continuous soul searching n reality chks implement Allah’s order honestly n purely in order to make a decent, Allah fearing n peaceful society. Subhan Allah, Alhamdulillah, La. Elaha Illalla, Allahu Akbar.
Fashion and Hijab-ফ্যাশন এন্ড হিজাব
“The first time I ever wanted to wear hijab was when I was about 12 years old. I promised myself that by the time I was 13, I would end up wearing it. But I broke that promise to myself and soon, the idea of me wanting to wear it had been forgotten.
Fast forward 9 years and here I am finally wearing it, Alhamdullilah. After Ramadan 2014, I finally put it on. I had full support from my husband and parents, though, ultimately, I did it for Allah (SWT) and nobody else. The hardest part about wearing hijab is just before. There were so many ‘what if’ thoughts that ran through my head but with Allah (SWT), I’ve conquered those thoughts. Afterwards, I felt the biggest relief. Such a heavy weight was lifted off my shoulders. I wished I had worn it sooner, but later is better than never!.
I no longer have men who are not my husband look at me in inappropriate ways, for that, I am grateful. Covering my head and body is definitely one of the most liberating feelings ever. I hope all women around the world can experience the hijab’s beauty!” -Samia (St. Louis, MO, USA)

This will b in 3 parrs, as follows:

– Conclusion blog for publishing
This is Literally My 1st Post in Yrs, 21 Jan, linGuischtick.
This is something that I’m sure a lot of people have noticed: there is trend toward using the word “literally” in a sentence where the speaker is not actually being literal. For instance:
“There were literally a million people at Dave’s party” (when not even 50 people showed up)
“I literally dropped dead from shock” (when of course that didn’t happen)
This is really starting to irritate people, and “literally” even appeared on a few lists of “words to ban in 2015″ such as TIME and TYT. Of course, those aren’t literally attempts to ban the word (ha!), but this is definitely an indication of how annoyed people are.
What’s going on is actually complet mostly we don’t notice it. At any given point in time, langua ely normal. This is an example of language change. Languages are constantly changing, but ges are relatively stable, so we tend to think of language change as a thing that happened a long time ago, but which no longer affects us. But sometimes, a significant portion of the population starts using language in a different way, and people do start to take notice. Almost inevitably, this attention is negative. People who use “literally” in the new, non-literal sense, are accused of mangling or corrupting the English language, or they are simply called idiots.
But let’s try to take a more measured approach here. Instead of complaining about this, let’s ask why it’s happening.
First, it’s useful to examine the the older meaning of literally. What, exactly, does that word mean? Consider these pairs of sentences:
This is a linguistics blog.
This is literally a linguistics blog.
My mother works as a nurse.
My mother literally works as a nurse.
Birds are not mammals.
Birds are literally not mammals.
Is there any difference between them? Not really. The word “literally” doesn’t contribute much to the sentence. It has a meaning of something like “the sentence containing this word is true and should be taken at face value”. But that’s our default expectation anyway – we generally assume that the people we are talking with are going to be truthful. It’s one of the Maxims of conversation. So telling you this is a linguistics blog doesn’t really give you any additional information than telling you this is literally a linguistics blog.
So why bother even having this word? When would you use it?
Well, one situation where it’s useful is if you thought the person you were talking to might not take you at your word. If there was some chance they thought you were exaggerating, you could use the word “literally” to show that you are not.
For instance, it’s common to say “This will just take five minutes” to mean “This will take a short period of time”. It doesn’t mean “This will take exactly 300 seconds”.
But suppose that something actually does take 5 minutes. For instance, you have a frozen meal to put in the microwave, and the box says “Set for 5 minutes”. Then you could tell someone “Dinner will be ready in 5 minutes”. However, there is some chance that you might be misunderstood as using “5 minutes” to mean “a short time”, so to emphasize your point, you could say “Dinner will be ready in literally 5 minutes”. In fact, this happens a lot with extreme numerical expressions. Another example might be if you’ve been really sick, you might want to tell your doctor that you’ve been “vomiting literally every two hours” so she doesn’t think that “every two hours” is a short-hand for “very frequently”.
So in general, “literally” is going to be used with “extreme” contexts, contexts where you think you are in danger of being misunderstood as exaggerting. This is relevant to the current change that is happening. The old meaning of “this sentence is entirely true” is being lost in favour of the association with extreme emphasis, since that use may be more common. Now “literally” is routinely used to emphasize the extreme nature of a situation, without regard for whether the sentence, uh, literally reflects the truth of the matter. That’s why you now hear people saying:
“I literally lost my mind when she told me”
“I was literally walking on eggshells at the meeting”
Whether or not this change makes you shake with prescriptive rage, we should at least acknowledge that this doesn’t represent some kind of reckless disregard for English. It’s not like the change is completely random. People aren’t suddenly using “literally” to mean “milk”, or as a suffix to indicate progressive aspect. This is a change that makes sense, given the current state of the English language. People are taking an existing association between a word and a context, and then generalizing the meaning of that word from there. To me, this seems like a completely “reasonable” kind of language change.
This is not even the first time this has happened. The word “literally” is moving to join an existing class of words including “really” and “truly”. They contain the roots “real” and “true”, which are similar in meaning to “literal”, and they have been turned into adverbs which are now used solely for emphasis. Their relationship to “reality” or “truth” has completely disappeared.
For example, I can stand in my living room and say “It’s really freezing in here” and I don’t mean “The reality is that it is freezing in here” because water would not turn to ice in my living room. It has never gone below zero degrees. And nobody would think that’s what I mean either. I just want to emphasize how cold it is. Similarly I can say “That man is truly a giant” without meaning “It’s true that he is a giant”. I just want to emphasize how tall he is.
In fact, you can stick those words into the expression I’m mentioned above, and I don’t think anyone would bat an eye:
“I truly lost my mind when she told me the news” (was it true your mind was lost?)
“I was really walking on eggshells at the meeting” (really? the floor was littered with them?)
Perhaps one day the majority of speakers will use literally that way, and this will no longer be a point of debate, as happened with “real” and “true”. But for right now, this puts “literally” in an interesting position of having opposite meanings. Words with opposite meanings like this are called “contranyms”, and there are more examples of these words than you might think. For example:
against means “in support of” and “not in support of”, e.g. “The plank is leaning against the wall” and “The Liberals are against the new Conservative bill”.
finished in “That house was finished after a weekend of hard work” vs “After the hurricane, that house was finished”
seed “to plant seeds” or “to remove seeds” (e.g. seeded grapes – and this always confuses me too)
wind up “wind up a toy” means to start it, “wind up a meeting” means to end it (strangely, it’s the same as wind down in this case)
In these example, the different meanings are generally easy to tell apart, because they occur in different contexts. For example, “against” meaning “in support of” is used for physical objects holding each other up, but the “not in support of” meaning is used with people or ideas.
The word “literally” is different, because currently the two different meanings can occur in exactly the same context. Obviously, this has the potential to lead to confusion, so it’s an unstable state for a language to be in, and eventually it will have to resolve itself. Personally, I think that “literally” will become just another emphasizer like “really”, and it will be totally unremarkable. In fact, the word has already escaped just the extreme contexts, and is already being used in rather mundane situations:
“I literally need a cup of coffee before I do anything” (here)
“I literally love ice cream” (here)
“I literally lost my car keys” (here)
Finally, just to be clear, I’m
neither condemning nor condoning this new usage of the word “literally”. In any case, there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s just interesting to see a language change in progress.
Shytwan’s Dream (15/4/15)
Trust me these r not keys 2 happier life. Cumilatively they induce us 2 run after the “duniya” (it is also synonym for world but popularly referred 2 the wonting xof material world).
When we read these we don’t realize that although written in a series, they r also very cleverly set individually 2 portray each as a separate individual item. Also most phrases r common in most religions. So when we read them we feel as if we hav actually read a religious lay man’s nicely compiled version. Pretending 2 remind us some acts encouraged by Quran and/ or sunnat (words n deeds of prophet mohammad, peace b upon him).
Well actually they r relaying a sketchy portion of Quran n sunnat n that is the con scheme 2 carry u over 2 the material world shrewdly n subconsciously bcoz like Quran/ sunnat it has no bakward links ie., in case of Quran where each n every sura or chapter of a total of 114 suras in quran were revealed 2 prophet Mohammad over a span of lengthy 25 yrs in order 2 solve personal, family, social, national, economic, financial, diplomatic, religious, law, justice, education, military, ethics, ruling head of states responsibilities, mannerisms et al ie , any or everything required in a persons lifetime is narrated in the quran in view of a concurrant problem or situation arised then. Not only it gave logical, fair n widely acceptable solutions 2 the live problems, where necessary it also reminds historical parallels of misfortunes for people or nations that rejected Allah’s guidance. Similarly these shytwans (satan or. devil) prophesies (also in the form of so called famous quotes of some “intelligent” humans) hardly ever links 2 jannat or jahannam (heaven or hell). This helps these shytwans 2 continuously cheat human beings by attacking on allahs laws n requirements and if n when suceeded 2 fool themselves n others, all then they need is another set of monkey chant filled pic cards 2 b written again in their non stop attempts in gradually destroying the humanity. Shytwan follows many routes n processes in achieving this target. These cunning words r nothing other then shaytwans vehicle 2 link your mind thru “waswasaa” – mischief of the whisperer (of evil), who withdraws (after the whisper), (quran 114 :4) 2 the bragging, greedy, lustful, luxury alluring duniya.
Had a Muslim written it, it probably wud hav looked like this:
G: don’t forget 2 give your portion of zakat (sadaka)
R: only relate 2 those who love Allah n his prophet Mohammad (saw)
E: follow the hadis of prophet Mohammad (saw) that the best exercise for your body n mind is 2 pray as much possible nafal (extra) salat
A: give shukria 2 Allah (appreciate him) bcoz u r a Muslim n he is kind enuf 2 bless u with all the good things in life n also promised for hereafter
T: ask Allah for hedayat (guidance with blessing) 2 try out anything new. Inshallah that will bring in barkat (gain Max or wotever that is beneficial – considering here n hereafter).
D: where ever u r never forget the direction 2wards your kibla which is kaba
R: the 1 n only true way for resilience or bounce back is 2 perform an earnest taubah 2 allah (repentence n promise of non recurrence)
E: show emotions where Allah has directed u 2 ie., elderlies, sicks, your kids n your parents etc.. He even told n taught us how 2 pray for all of them 2 him.
A: only accept wot is halal in yor life
M: be part of something bigger n true ie , Islam (always).
Now u hav the choice in front of u. Whether u submit 2 the will of Allah – islam n b a winner or choose the shaytwans way where there is only sin n duniya. Allah has given u the book n prophet as guidance, made u the greatest of his creations n then said “Let there b no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error” (Quran 2:256). So inshallah its yor decision n may Allah guide u 2 take the rite decision.

Conspiracy of Shytwan Exposed
Let’s look at a few points fm unknown 2 each other.
So in general, “literally” is going to be used with “extreme” contexts, contexts where you think you are in danger of being misunderstood as exaggerting. This is relevant to the current change that is happening. The old meaning of “this sentence is entirely true” is being lost in favour of the association with extreme emphasis, since that use may be more common. Now “literally” is routinely used to emephasize the extreme nature of a situation, without regard for whether the sentence, uh, literally reflects the truth of the matter
2day (now that day, 15/4/15) mashallah it.seems 2b my lucky day. For the 1st time I downloaded WordPress n was able 2 publish a blog in WordPress for the 1st time on the same day. Only thing I hav 2 know wot is publishing as opposed 2 posting as said in other blog sites (I think I know it now)..
Now bak 2 the point. Here again fm the suggested readings of recommended blogs by WordPress the 1 n only that mashallah I chose 2 read, the blogger wisely ventures in2 the meaning of “literally” as he sees awkward meanings, but wot he also defends as suitable for the current state of English language, as the word n language evolves. Although his explanation is lengthy n whining. The reason I don’t like this style of writing is bcoz it confuses the readers mind n it needs 2b read.a lot 2 understand wot the author is tryiing 2 say. Now read wot he says at a other place:
This is an example of language change. Languages are constantly changing, but ges are relatively stable, so we tend to think of language change as a thing that happened a long time ago, but which no longer affects us. But sometimes, a significant portion of the population starts using language in a different way, and people do start to take notice. Almost inevitably, this attention is negative. People who use “literally” in the new, non-literal sense, are accused of mangling or corrupting the English language, or they are simply called idiots.
I don’t know wot is ges o if it is a typo. The 1s general people calls idiots r then defended by a class of experts, intellectuals et all., as not idiots. There is an interesting name for these intellectual juries in bangla given by the population in general for when they cross the line of tolerance or understanding of the general peoples practice of culture, religion , traditions etc. These “atels” usually starts by challenging peoples natural laws embedded thru hundred of yrs of blieve n practice. They think they r smart n specially earned the capacity 2 defy almost antthing relating 2 Allah n his rules based on whereever, whenever these atels finds any theory or ism ie., Darwinism 2 scientology n communism 2 capitalism.
Finally this is wot I wrote in my blog:
Similarly these shytwans (satan or. devil) prophesies (also in the form of so called famous quotes of some “intelligent” humans) hardly ever links 2 jannat or jahannam (heaven or hell). This helps these shytwans 2 continuously cheat human beings by attacking on allahs laws n requirements and if n when suceeded 2 fool themselves n others, all then they need is another set of monkey chant filled pic cards 2 b written again in their non stop attempts in gradually destroying the humanity.
All evolutions of the languages r not necessarily natural. Like most of shaytwans deceiving acts with ulterior motives which r actually accomplished thru humans, who hav all the knowledge of the world except for the knowledge of truth or Islam. But with their in born genious instincts they somehow learn 2 hate Islam not having read even probably 2 chapters out of the 114 chapters of Quran (how long does take 2 read that? Probably 1 summer if u want 2 read, understand n lucky enuf 2 find anything in it irrational, unscientific, inconsistent, not forward looking n not justified n peaceful so that it can b challenged). Then y not, again? Only 2 b rewarded by shytwans. These r shown as winners in the short term by shaytwans. Then eventually a well recognized deceiving shaytwan within the society. but definitely a loser later in absence of wisdom n necessary blessings fm Allah.
I am not a. linguist or an expert in lit but thnxs 2 the blogger anyway. Contrary to his conclusions i feel all shud b aware of conspired n catastrophic changes in that language. Actually I hav smelt similar rats in my mother tongue. bangla too.
