Bird Migration

Do they not see the birds suspended in mid-air up in the sky? Nothing holds them there except Allah. There are certainly signs in that for people who believe.

Elements of Uniqueness in humanbeings

I am compiling a list of elements that is unique in every human being. The level of detail that Allah has put to make individuals distinct from one other is simply amazing. Please add on to my list.

1- voice

2- style of talking

3- structure of face

4- height

5- built

6- style of walking, footsteps.

7- pattern on our palms

8- pattern under our feet

9-skin pattern on our hands, (if you look closely the waves of lines, and scattered line patters vary from person to person)

10-color of skin

11- color of eyes

12- mannerism

13- postures

14- bone structure 15- weight

16- structure of hair eg: straight, curly, wavy

17- color of hair eg brown, golden, black

18- and ofcourse personality traits vary from every individual some of these elements are similar amongst siblings and family but on a whole every single humanbeing is like no other. There are/have been billions of humans but so many permutations courtesy Allah. SubhanAllah

19- Retinal patterns. These are very unique - even twins don't have the same retinal patterns

20- Size of eyeballs and shape of Eyebrows

21- Diameter of aorta

22- shape of Nails

23- Length and thickness of eyelashes

24- Size/shape and whiteness of Teeth

25- Skin appearance, besides color

26- Structure of nose

27-Fluffiness of hair

28- Size of feet

29- Blood group

30- Structure of Brain

31) Genes - being part of the DNA, they carry genetic information responsible for a large number of physical features.

32) Degree of righteousness of one's Heart

33) Mind/Mentality Certain non-physical elements probably have the most weightage in determining the uniqueness and distinction of individuals, e.g. (32) and (33).

another me?

Have you ever had that moment in life when you look back at something that you wrote that brought back a realization of your own old self and you smile to yourself thinking wow, was that really me? :) It happened to me today;

A friend recently floated an old article that I wrote for my blog over 2 years ago with a few lines of praise. I read the appreciation note and ignored the link until a few days later she took the care to bring it to my attention by appreciating it again in person. Consequently I spared a moment to reread my own writing. After having a read I was quiet for a couple of minutes pondering that how I have changed over the years, and what different state of mind, heart and thoughts I was at that point of time. Life or something like it.

Remember me in your duas
