The scene is set as Khadijah Hussein, a westernized, fashionable, Malaysian fashion model and the mother of two turns up at her local Mosque dressed in a Burqa complete with a veil. She is unable to communicate except to utter Muslim prayers. Khadijah's frantic husband contacts her Singapore alumni group including psychiatrist, Dr. Linda Belgrove, who diagnoses Khadijah as having suffered 'Identity Fracture, the worst case she have ever seen.' Members of Khadijah's alumni group decide to take her on a voyage of rediscovery to well known healing sites in Asia, Europe and America to restore Khadijah's identity and allow her to return to her children and husband. The result is a tongue-in-cheek look at Identity issues in Muslim Malaysia following the invasion of Iraq. Culture-clash, thousands of years old religious traditions, and the meaning of life are all examined in this fast-paced Humor Novel set in Malaysia, Singapore, Hawaii, France, Arizona, and the former North Borneo.

THE WORLD’S SCRIPTURES contain stories that our ancestors used to explain and teach things that they did not understand. Today, billions of people still believe in and dogmatically promulgate the stories and explanations the ancients recorded. Since those scriptures were written, scientists from all over the world have discovered the real answers to the questions the ancients faced. A Song of Humanity is a lyrical summary of what we Wise Men (Homo Sapiens) have learned about our universe, our world and we ourselves. Many chapters end with open-ended questions inviting readers to clarify their thoughts and beliefs. Practical advice for modern understanding and living weaves its way throughout this handbook for understanding where we came from, who we are, and where we are going.

Feminist Auteurs examines a rich and diverse body of work that has received insufficient attention both in film studies and in feminist theory on film. Looking at individual films within the context of feminist film as a genre, Ramanathan examines film from diverse cultural traditions, while paying close attention to what might be regarded as feminist in different cultural contexts. The films chosen expand our ideas of feminism covering as they do film from Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the US. Full-length interpretations of twenty-four films, both older and contemporary, including Vagabond, India Song, Bhaji on the Beach, Chocolat, and Daughters of the Dust lay out a complete and powerful framework for reading women's film.

He created a cast of over two thousand individual and identifiable characters, some of whom reappear in different novels. He organized his works into his masterpiece, La Comedie Humaine,which was the final result of his attempt to grasp the whole of society and experience into one varied but unified work. Richard Howard was born in Cleveland in 1929. He is the author of fourteen volumes of poetry and has published more than one hundred fifty translations from the French, including works by Gide, Stendhal, de Beauvoir, Baudelaire, and de Gaulle.

This volume brings together contributions that explore the increasingly important roles that English plays in Asia, including its contribution to economic growth, national imaginaries and creative writing. These are issues that are political in a broad sense, but the diversity of Asian contexts also means that the social, political and cultural ramifications of the spread of English into Asia will have to be understood in relation to the challenges facing specific societies. The chapters in the book collectively illustrate this diversity by focusing on countries from South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific. Each country has two contributions devoted to it: one paper provides an overview of the country’s language policy and its positioning of English, and another provides a critical discussion of creative expressions involving the use of English. Taken together, the papers in the volume detail the most recent developments concerning the politics of English in Asia.

A very common name for girls among Muslims is Khadijah. Many choose this name to commemorate the first wife of the Prophet Muhammad. Even though Khadijah only lived to see the early stages of a Muslim community, she was considered a central figure in the history of Islam. Khadijah is the focus of this post, the fifth in a series on significant figures in Islam. Khadijah was born around 556 in Mecca. Her father, Khuwaylid bin Asad, was a popular leader in the tribe of Quraysh and a successful businessman, who eventually died in battle. As a result of her father’s business success, Khadijah grew up in a wealthy household. She later followed in her father’s footsteps, becoming a successful businesswoman in her own right. In addition to her business savvy, Khadijah was known to have good character, often feeding and clothing the poor and assisting her relatives in need. These deeds earned her the title Al-Tahira (the Pure One). Before marrying the Prophet Muhammad, Khadijah was widowed twice. She decided that she would not marry again and would just focus on her children from those two marriages. However, after she hired the Prophet Muhammad to take her trading caravans to Syria, she revisited the idea of marriage. She was impressed by his character and his honesty in dealing with her business. Khadijah’s friend, Nafisa, approached the Prophet and asked if he would accept Khadijah’s proposal. He said he would. She was 40 years old and he was 25. They were married for 25 years, during which the Prophet was monogamous. Khadijah and the Prophet had 6 children together: Qasim, Abdullah, Zaynab, Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum, and Fatima. Their two sons, Qasim and Abdullah, did not survive past childhood. In the 15th year of their marriage, the Prophet Muhammad received his first revelation of the Qur’an from Gabriel. He ran from the Cave of Hira and went straight to Khadijah and asked her to cover him. Khadijah consoled him and told him that he was in fact a prophet. She became the first person to become Muslim. Khadijah was loyal to the Prophet Muhammad and supported him in all aspects of life. She was a strong Muslim and sacrificed her wealth in the cause of Islam. In 617, the Meccans decided to impose an economic boycott on the Muslims and members of the Prophet’s Banu Hashim clan. During this boycott, the Muslims suffered tremendously often spending days without food. Khadijah, who had been very wealthy, bore the hardships with the other Muslims. In 619, three years before the hijra to Medina, Abu Talib, the Prophet’s uncle and protector, and Khadijah, weakened by the boycott, died. This year was called the year of sadness because it was a big loss for the Prophet Muhammad. Throughout the rest of his life, the Prophet Muhammad would remember Khadijah often, so much so that Ayesha said that she was never as jealous of another woman as she was of Khadijah. Once Ayesha asked the Prophet about his love for Khadijah and his response was, “She believed in me when no one else did; she accepted Islam when people rejected me; and she helped and comforted me when there was no one else to lend me a helping hand.” Khadijah is respected by all Muslims for her conviction, her love for the Prophet, and her willingness to sacrifice for the faith. She is considered to be one of the great women in the history of Islam and is a role model for all Muslim women. This book is story of Lady Khadijah wife of Prophet Muhammad SAW, based from Holy Quran & Al-Hadith. 286
