Zain to a Wonderful World by Zain

Amazing performance it was ! and that was only for the final rehearsal ! wow !

Yesterday I had the chance to attend the final rehearsal of Zain's new play " Zain to a Wonderful World " which is located at Kuwait's Ice skating by a special invetation from Zain to most of the bloggers :) 

 We were adviced to be there at 3:00pm ut the show started at 3:30pm but for  second thought it does make sense because we were there to see something behind the scenes ! something that is not out it to all the audience ! The Final Rehearsal .

To be honest I didn't expect that it would be that amazing ! actually I enjoyed each moment there ! I LOVED IT ! some details unique one that you can't find in every play here is some :

1- perfect preformance and precise directions : preformers have been following the same directions up in the stage precise foot steps ... that made a beautiful story infront of my eyes either you are focusing on one or on all of the stage from far away just get the same beautiful scene.

2- Great costumes : I've been to broadway shows , cirque du soleil shows , althought Zain's custumes are simple but perfectly presented to reflect the stories theme . I'm not sure if they wear wearing some make up but the way they looked was lovely ! I felt its the way they should look again to match the story ! Bravo

3- Acting with Love : you don't want to sit there and watch someone on stage who was pushed into the play like if its something that has to be done and get over with ! well at Zain's Play I've been watching the eye contact between the performers ! Let's say the team work presents you a final astonishing piece of art ! and thats what I loved about them ! all of them on stage were dedicated to what their doing there on that moment ! The face experissions ! got my attention Alot ! when you guys go there you will know what I mean ! I just felt that it was real !

4- Music and Songs :  Its certainly  one fine arabic language musical play !!! kinds will love it ! your kids will ask for the soundtrack ! I asked for the soundtrack :)  notice the performance that goes with the sound effects during the play ! I just loved it ! just Dance and dance and dance ! your little ones will love it too !

5- A lesson to learn : Finally one play that delivers one fine manner to dicipline our little one in a musical delighful way ! I'm not gonna say anything about the story ! I'll leave that to you to watch it yourself inshallah !

To all the people on that stage yesterday
To the people behind the stage
To the people behind their desks
To all who made that piece of art come true
Thank you for loving what your doing ..Thank you for a lovely Zain Wonderful World !

Thank you Zain for the invetation :)

Oh Irene

Some people welcomed Irene in a different way .... its never to early to say I survived an incident I think its motivational ..some stores started selling those T-shirts before the arrival of Hurricane Irene :)

I've been to New York once only once & it was enough to fall in Love with the city !
 From all the movies that were filmed there and all the great times I had there with my family vacationing in NYC .. been to those crowded places, streets and shopping icons 
! its simply the city that never sleeps Specially times Square ....NYC I Love you ...

Hurricane Irene has stopped the Life of NYC . Since two days ago people have been preparing for Irene .. food, flashlights, charge your devices many instructions all over the news and including the amazing twitter ! flights has been cancelled .. Games and broadways shows have been cancelled too .. areas have been evacuated ..shelters are occupied with those who need a place to stay ....

Travelers take care and we know its not anyone's fault I guess its just uncounted natural adventure !

Residents of the big apple Stay safe and sound ....
and for the Hurricane ...Irene we Hate you

Ramadan 2011 around the World

A Pakistani Muslim arranges bowls of food before Iftar, the breaking of the fast

No one can deny how beautiful Ramadan is around the World .No matter how poor or rich you are ... Ramadan is for all and brings the best for all indeed :)

One of the things that I love is checking how many muslims is doing around the world in Ramadan , by going over the web and viewing many photos from different places and sites all presenting Ramadan Days from muslim cultures !

take some minues and look depply into the upcoming photos 

I love how photos carries something or sometimes many things ..... or just all what you need to learn or remind yourself at the moment... what needs to be corrected in your life or just what needs to be done or what you need to change about your life your self. 

Observe to learn ..... Observe to Appreciate..... Observe to cherish....Observe to feel ... Observe to care ..... Observe to share .... Observe to be proud ... Observe to teach ..Observe to love ... Just look at the photos and compare them of what you've got in your Ramadan   

Since I got many Readers from all over the world , I think they deserve to know a little about our Holy Month Ramadan :)

What is Ramadan ?

Ramadan is considered as the holiest season in the Islamic year and commemorates the time when the Qu’ran (Islamic holy book) is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. This occurred on Laylat Al-Qadr, one of the last 10 nights of the month.Over a billion Muslims around the world every year awaits for the holy month of Ramadan.

Ramadan ends when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again, marking the new lunar month’s start. Eid-al-Fitr is the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

When does Ramadan Begin ?

Ramadan traditionally begins with a new moon sighting, marking the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar

What's so special about Ramadan ?

Its the Islamic month of fasting , Many Muslims (except children, the sick and the elderly) abstain from food, drink, and certain other activities during daylight hours in Ramadan.

 Fasting teach us Muslims to practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate.

Indonesian Muslim students march during a rally for Ramadan in Jakarta, Indonesia
Indonesian women pray during Ramadan at the Istiqlal mosque in Jakarta
Thai Muslim women pray at the Pattani Central Mosque

What's the spirit of Ramadan ?

A muslim should carry purity of both thoughts and actions specially during Ramadan . The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.

People are encourged to give more charities to the poor in this Holy month and help the need. Also people tend to read the entire Qur'an during Ramadan.

 Muslims tend to recite the entire Qur'an by the end of Ramadan through special prayers known as Tarawih, which are held in mosques every night of the month, during which a section of the Qur'an is recited.

Students are split into groups as they attend a Quran recitation class at an Islamic boarding school in Medan, North Sumatra

Children break fast at King Fahad Mosque on the first day

Thousands of Muslims circle the Kaaba inside the Grand Mosque
in Islam's holiest city of Mecca

With all of the tragedies going on in the world from wars of revolutions to people losing their beloved ones because of Hunger ....

I send my prayers from Kuwait my country

May Allah help all those who are in Need

May Allah spread peace among Mankind

May Allah save those suffering Souls

Having Thoughts that I might tour up many destination during next Ramadan ...from viewing the photos I feel I can get more of Ramadan in other spots of the world :)
