November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

STUNNING AND EXTRAORDINARY!





Luzon Bleeding-heart dove, a species of ground dove, gets its name from a spatter of bright red color at the center of its white breasts. No matter how carefully one looks, the red patch looks so real .. like a bleeding wound or an injury. But it isn't. It's just a natural color. Amazingly as one can see, the red hue extends beyond the vivid red patch, fading into a lighter shade of red and further creating the illusionary affect of blood running down the bird's front. The males have a slightly brighter red patch. Unlike the common rock pigeons, the bleeding-heart doves are very quiet and timid. They seldom leave the ground. Whenever they fly off, it's to get into their nests. They are found only in Luzon, the largest and northernmost island in the Philippines

All praise be to Allah Almighty.

Allah!  Mash'Allah, Subhan'Allah !!   Isn't this awesome beyond words ?!   I recall once while bird-watching in Pakistan, I saw a beautiful finch-sized bird in our lush garden with a patch of similar red, more rectangular in shape, on its hind side, sitting on our clementine tree. I was literally startled seeing that red color, looked so much like blood.  But the bird was chirruping and moving about like any other healthy bird.  Minutes later I saw 2 or 3 similar ones join flying in and relaxing on the same tree with the same red patch behind them.  And then I felt relaxed too and said to myself "thank Allah, it's not an injury."  Smiley

Right sis.  It's indeed incredible.  All praise be to Allah only.

I've also seen the ones you mentioned in Pakistan.  They look a bit like a much smaller version of woodpeckers.  They have the bright red patch but the surrounding area doesn't seem to have the lighter hue creating the drooling red affect.
