Floating here thinking of Khadija
praying I’ll be saved
but here I lie
left to die
cold space will be my grave

floating here thinking of Aisha
hoping I’ll be saved
but here I lie
left to die
black space will be my grave

floating here thinking of Jamila
thinking I’ll be saved
but here I lie
left to die
empty space will be my grave

floating here thinking of Malika
sure I’ll be saved
but here I lie
left to die
dark space will be my grave

Hadith charity

on the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: The messenger of Allah said :

"Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up : to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity."

Curiosity probe lands safely on Mars

NASA's Mars science rover Curiosity landed safely late on Sunday after hurtling through the pink Martian skies at the start of a two-year quest for signs the Red Planet once hosted key ingredients for life.
Mission controllers burst into applause and cheered in relief as they received signals confirming that the rover had survived its perilous descent and arrived within its target zone at the bottom of a vast, ancient crater.
The robotic lab sailed through space for more than eight months, covering 352 million miles (566 million km), before piercing Mars' atmosphere at 13,000 miles per hour -- 17 times the speed of sound -- before starting its descent.
