Hi Mortaza,

Many thanks for putting your essays in this thread. Without any doubt, your essays are useful. You write effectively and interestingly. I really enjoy reading your essays.

About three years ago-for IELTS preparation-I had four courses in an institute in Tehran; concerning four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The courses were really useful. They made my language skills improve significantly, and consequently I scored an average 7.5 out of 9 in IELTS exam. I scored 8 out of 9 in writing module.

I am not going to give you some tips in this public place, since it may affect your morale negatively, or even may hurt your feeling. However, there are some rules in essay writing which should be followed(va man heyfam miyad nagam). Following those rules will cause you to increase your writing band in exams.

For example, it is important to have a Five-Paragraph essay format. This format is so common both in TOEFL and IELTS. In this format the first paragraph is used for introducing(introduction). You should rephrase the topic in this paragraph and make it seem more interesting for readers to get interested in reading the essay. If the topic question is about your personal opinion about something, you should also give your opinion clearly(agree or disagree) in this paragraph and make the readers know the supporting reasons you are going to give in the next paragraphs. You ought to have three reasons for your idea. Those three reasons will be discussed in more details with other supporting sentences in three independent paragraphs.

In the second paragraph, you should write about your first reasons. The first sentence of this paragraph is made from your first reason and it is the topic sentence of paragraph. You have to write some sentences about the first reason; trying to support it with some evidence, examples, or some logical statements.

In the third and fourth paragraph, you should write about the second reason(mentioned in the first paragraph) and the third reason(mentioned in the first paragraph) respectively.

Finally, in the last paragraph, you should again write a sentence with different words about your three reasons which you have mentioned in the first paragraph. The key words of this sentence are your three reasons, but the words are different(noun, adjective, verb which can be made by the root of words e.g. improving, improvement, improved, ..). You shouldn't directly disagree or agree with the main question of topic again. It is done indirectly.

Among three paragraphs, you should obviously use linking phrases such as, in addition to that, firstly, secondly, finally, In the first place,..

When the topic is asking about advantages and disadvantages of something, you shouldn't write your opinion in the first paragraph. If you believe the advantages are more than the disadvantages, you should first write one paragraph about disadvantages, and two paragraphs about disadvantages. In this case, the conclusion paragraph(the last one) is always close to the side you are supporting. Plus, in this case, you have to give your idea directly in the last paragraph by proper sentences such as, 'In my opinion, the advantages of ..weigh its disadvantages....'.

I hope it helps.

I am in a hurry. Alas I have no time to check this post to correct my mistakes. I have to leave my office quickly. Sorry for mistakes. If you need more explanation, just let me know.

All the best,
Behnam, 10 October, 2012

Help!!!! }:
I am a new member here. I need help checking my sentences, but I don't know where and how to post my questions or sentences.

Thank you
Kolokoy
Hi Kolokoy,

Welcome to this place; where you are allowed to ask your questions and share your experience with us.

Would you mind introducing yourself? Where are you from? Do you work or study? What is your job in case you work and what is your field in case you study? What is your gender? Are you married or single? What does your name mean? Those questions seem to be a little personal, I agree, but for me it is necessary to have a mind image about my friends. If you mind answering, that's OK. Don't worry. {-: {-: {-:

We often avoid checking people's sentences or correcting their mistakes, but I've recently decided to have my suggestions. I think it will help me learn more, because I will force myself to focus on accuracy.

I am not sure, but
I need help checking my sentences,...
sounds odd to me. The sentence is grammatically correct, but I prefer to write it in a different way. It is maybe a matter of taste, but I guess 'I need someone to correct my mistakes' sounds better. Please check it in a dictionary. I will check it later.

We are all learning English. In other words, we are some learners from different part of the world. Thank you for joining us.

I hope to hear more from you.

All the best,
Behnam, 10 October, 2012

Hi Mortaza,

How are you?

Thanks for your message.

Dear, there is two side for every problem. The first one is obvious for everyone and the other is hidden...

The global conspiracy against Syria was planned in isolation from what is going inside and it has benefited from some bad people here and As you know there is no country in the world without corruption..

The evil will seek for you and if it couldn't, it would create a chance by its tools. Here in Syria, the bad and corrupt people were those tools who performed their jobs perfectly in a mean way.

Dear, we don't carry the outside our inside's mistakes because we want to evasion of our responsibilities. However, we are showing the world how they are connected.

For example, if somebody wanted to destroy your home and it was hard for him to do it from the outside, he would try to create problems between you and your family members and make them hate you and become against you...

Finally, I don't deny that there is an inside enemy and every individual should kill it first.

Inshallah, Syria will go out from this crisis stronger than ever and we will close all the gaps which the evil entered.

Thanks for reading.

Wish you the best.
Amal

Hi Nana,

It is always nice reading your posts and hearing about you. Thank you very much for caring about our long friendship; watering it regularly. LOL :lol:

I also love the countryside and villages very much. Although there are some limitation, the pace of life is slower in rural areas. I really love this aspect of the countryside.

About the mobile phone and the software I have no idea. I prefer my own old version of Nokia(1100). I have no time to play with my cell phone. Well, you are a lady and your mobile phone can play a good friend's role for you. You may have a close relationship with your cell phone. But, I am a MAN(you should notice the difference. This is written in capital...hehehehe... Joking). I don't care about my mobile. It is one of my biggest enemies. I sometimes put it on the desk and don't look at it from the morning to the evening. :lol: :lol: :lol:

All the best,

Dear Morteza,

I agree with you about the mistakes which some people do inside our country and it may helps the enemies to be more rabid .
If there is quarreling between a family members ,the foe can easier penetrate inside the house . The quarreling between the family members makes the family more vulnerable and sometimes they ignore the enemy and insist on their idea.
Unity and knowledge can save a nation in front of aggressors.

B.Wishes,

Dear Nana,

You had holiday in the countryside , your body and your soul were refreshed , I like countryside , if there were some facilities like good schools , swimming pool , high speed internet .. in the countryside ,surly I would go there to live for ever . I can buy a big house and garden and breed some animal like turkey and ostrich. I would have a good business beside my family.
What is your idea? Do you like to breed animals in the countryside.

B.Wishes,
Mohsen

Re: Let's learn together!

Post by Oriani » Fri Oct 12, 2012 6:53 pm

So, here there is one of my posts. I have to confess that I do not like writing too much because it reminds me of my college days which our professors asked us to write essays and more essays almost every day and I didn't like at all. However, I would like to share something with you all:

Today is October 12th. According to the PAST, the Spaniard Christopher Columbus arrived to America with his crew. He is famous for "discovering" America, but actually our NATIVES already lived here, so, I still don't understand WHY people call it a " discovering". Anyway, continue. So, for four hundred years , we used to celebrate that we were found out by him and so on. Yet,in 2002, our current President changed our history and now we celebrate the October 12th but with a different point of view: "Our Natives' resistance" . Why? Because when they arrived, the started killing our natives, rapped our native girls and asking us to follow the rules of the Spaniard Kingdom.

I do not have any bad feelings against the Spaniards. Spain is a good country and I've got several good friends from there. Actually, what I only thank to that "famous" Christopher is the language because we speak Spanish.

Ok, I continue. If you take a look at our aspect or our characteristics, we are black, white, blonde, brunette, short, tall, etc...because of the European blood they brought to us and the slaves ( the black ones). However, if you take a look at the people in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador they still remind the characteristics of our natives: They have quite dark skin and straight black hair. Why? Because he didn't have time to reach those countries and invade them.

So, the "rich" ones in my country celebrate that Christopher was his discoverer ( how stupid they are) but ordinary-intelligent-self centered people like me KNOW that he was just a rich thief who wanted us to belong to his kingdom. THANK GOD we have had our independence since 1810.

I hope you like it.

Kisses.

Hi Oriani,

It was nice meeting you in the chat room. You are a great teacher as well as a kind friend. You are a real treasure for English learners; with a lot of experience on EC and life.

As I promised, I read your last post again; but more carefully this time. You've got a lot of memories from your friends and you feel nostalgic about the past. Some friends have gone and you have missed them! I do understand you. You may ask how? Well, I used to write on English-at-home. I wrote there for about three years. I made friends with many people from different parts of the world. Some of them are still in contact with me. For example, Mohsen, Elham, Mortaza, Nana, Andrew...are still here; nice signs of the past for me! I really feel proud of my friends.

Elham has done a very big job. When leaving the first site(English-at-home), she copied and saved all the posts in four books entitled 'Let's learn together'. Each book contains more than 1000 pages! Ive uploaded them on WWW.scribd.com. If you visit that site and search for 'let's leran together', you will find them. Having a look at them will let you know our great community more in details. Good Old Days! Nostalgic right now! About to cry...

Sometimes, I look at the Moon say; "Moon, do you see my friends? Give my warmest regards to them." It makes me happy. Sometimes, I look at the blue sky and say, "Behnam, your friends are under this sky breathing the air...that's a common thing.." These thoughts make me feel close to my friends, although they are miles away from me.

Dear Oriani, from this point of view, nobody can understand you as I do!

About other parts of your post, I should mention to your indirect criticism about Americans. I agree with you. America belongs to all native people who were born in that large continent.

It was sad to hear about the break and leaving your four-year partner. It is necessary to have some similarities with our love. There are differences and similarities between both sexes. Amazingly, those differences and similarities keep the life going. For a happy relationship( a successful one), it is vitally important to balance those two essences of life-similarities and differences. I wish you a happy life.

Giving or receiving gifts can be surprising; sure, but the feelings related to the gifts are valuable. As you know, receiving a gift from someone isn't only taking a physical thing. Apart from the stuff, we always take some attention, some care, some recognition too. These spiritual things are very effective and long-lasting. You are a lucky person, since receiving gift from EC is a great success.

It seems love is dead in the real life. It is dead or taking the last breaths! It seems values have changed; blackness is overtaking whiteness! Oh, strangely some noble feelings have gone from societies. We can only find them in the virtual world; the Net! That's why I often say the advantages of the Internet weigh its disadvantages.

The story is getting long and boring. Let's end this page and close the book right here. What I am saying is this: I am honoured to have you as a teacher and a kind friend in this thread.

All the best,
Behnam, 12 October, 2012

Hi Behnam,

Wow!!!! congratulation my dear great friend! I am really really really happy for you. For sure, you deserve this winning as well as you have won our hearts! :-D

You have taught us a great lesson that when someone focus on something, they can achieve it.

I wish you the best and.... Emm... :oops: I wish that room don't take you from us -your old friends- who used to chat with you on Yahoo. :roll:

Dear, I had just finished reading your last post to Oriani and my eyes are full of tears..
I don't know why but always when I read about the old thread and your old friends, I start crying. I know what you felt and what you meant. The thread was a big loss for all of us! :-(

My words maybe are repeated but I couldn't prevent myself from writing my feelings.
I really wish if I was a member there, I really wish I entered the net earlier and met all your old great friends there.. Uh! What a luck. :-(

Anyway, in the end, I can just pray and ask God to keep them safe and happy...

Thanks Dear Behnam for everything indeed. I am very proud of you.

Have a happy time. {-;

Dear Behnam,

I was revewing some of the posts in the first thread while I came across these questions asked to you by one of our dear friends! You hadn't answered the questions there but I some how found the answers in your last post to Oriani!


Dear friend, have you ever thought to leave this thread forever??? Have you ever thought about the future of this thread??? How do you feel about your first friends hat didn't continue writing?? Are you still in contact with them????


You have prooved your loyalty to your thread and your friends. It's really admiring how firm and true-hearted you are. Your sentences in your last post show how faithful you are towards your old friends even if they didn't continue writing. You are an awesome friend*


All te best,

Hi Oriani,

There are many stories in the history which are not true. You are right, it was not Christopher Columbus who first arrived in American continent . Many people were living there before Christopher arrival , even I say that some merchants from Iran were working there ,they shipped between Iran and America at that time, many people had been gone to America before ,but Christopher Columbus had an illusion that he was the first one and the king supported him to registered his name as a discoverer of America.

The history has been written by what the owners of power wanted not what was the true, Another fake story is the Moon landing conspiracy which claim by NASA that about many years ago some astronomers form USA landed on the moon and walked there and put their flag in the moon soil.
The question is that why after many years the mission of landing on the moon never been repeated , The answer is that the first mission was only some fake movie which was produced by NASA.

Good bye
Mohsen


Have a good time

Hi my dear.

Yes, exactly. I feel nostalgic. I remember I used to come every single afternoon to meet my friends through the different forums there are here. Actually, we were a very nice group. But then, every one got busy, some of them got married, called off their EC accounts, we didn't come anymore because we lost interest on the topics, we got Facebook, Skype, Messenger and other media to keep in touch and well...we lost what we had here.

Yes, there are too many EC memories. Actually, last month, I had a very uncomfortable situation with of those friends I made here and we're not longer friends anymore. BELIEVE ME! Thar broke my heart. In fact, it is still broken but I have to move on and get over it.

Thank you for understanding and for your support. Now you understand why being here on EC is sometimes quite painful for me.

Best regards.

Hi Mohsen and Oriani,

To me, the idea that landing on the moon by NASA is a lie to the world seems very extreme! It is true that the story has never been repeated, but we know that, right now, there are some robotic machine on the mars that are doing their mission with success.

Dear Behnam,

Thank you for reading my post.I think science and technology can give us convenience so we can save our time to do other valuable things.For example,I use my cell phone to replace my pc when I don't want to open my pc.I can use my cell phone to send emails,surf the Internet ,even write my post on ESL.You see,it is easy and it is have nothing to do with man or woman.You should abandon your Nokia 1100.
Today I read a good book which is recommended out of 5 stars by Amazon,it gives me plenty of stimulation.It's called A Life Worth Breathing which is wrote by Max Strom.He is a Yoga Master.Here is what he said:We live with our mind in a storm and we call it normal, but we know it isn't. It is this storm that keeps us awake at night in anxiety or depression. It is this storm that erodes our health and relationships, especially those closest to us. And this is why we need to turn our attention to our personal growth now more than ever. Max Strom, teacher, and author of A Life Worth Breathing presents a direct and profound program on self-fulfillment that is know to ellicit a personal renaissance.When I finish reading this book,I feel peace and want to change myself.I hope you can read it.

Best wish

Dear Moshen,

If you want, you can build a house in the countryside with a big swimming pool and garden. You can also apply the internet.I think the countryside life is healthy and peace but there is a shortcoming --it is no entertainment at night for young man.All the people in the countryside go to sleep before 10 P.M so it is no karaoke or bar or the place for eating something at night.

I breed two Pomeranians in the countryside house.A dog is called Huanhuan,another dog is called lele.Their names spell together in Chinese means happiness.

Do you like the car?I went to the car exhibition,and see different kinds of car.Some is expensive such as Maserati, Ferrari.How I wish I would be a rich man and I could buy all of them.You The model is beautiful.You can see the picture.

B.w.

Dear Nana,

Thanks for your suggestion about living in the countryside, you know that my recreation is swimming at night .So I no need of karaoke or bar ,I always sing when taking bath , so in the countryside I can sing strongly in the bathroom without bothering the neighbours .
What do you give to your dogs for eating when they are far from you?
I saw the picture of car and beautiful lady who was standing in front of car. Who is she? If someone buy the car , Is that lady a part of car , I mean the seller give us the car with a lady!!! :!!: ?

I see that many Iranian merchants are going to the Canton fair now . Do you attend in Canton fair, If you go there please send me the pictures of booth in Truck spare parts' manufacturer.

Good Luck
Mohsen

Dear Mortaza,

How are you my friend, I don't want to deny the progress they have had in astronomy. But the human and robot are far different from each other. If they have landed on the moon , they should continue their activities for more discoveries in the moon, there are also some reasons for fake landing , as some American reject it , if you search in the internet there are a lot of articles about moon landing conspiracy . look at the following address as example which two writers bring some reasons for their claim.

Dear Mohsen,

When you have a bath in the bathroom,which song you often sing ?It is said that it is sound in the bathroom better than in other place.

Nah,if you have money ,you could buy this lady as your another wife.I want to know if the man can choose two or more wife in Iran?I have heard that a Moslems man can choose four wives.Is that true?

You are right,the Canton fair began on Oct 15.I'm sorry ,I haven't visit to the Fair so I can't take photo for you.You should come to see the Canton fair by yourself.If you want to need the pictures,I can search some in chinese web.Please tell me your e-mail address and I send to you.

Have a good day.
Nana

Hi All friends,

This is just to let you know that I am a father right now. Mehran and Mehrdad came to the world yesterday. :lol: :lol: Certainly, they were in this world, but, you know... different life...My wife gave birth to two boy babies yesterday. Thankfully, both kids and my wife are well.

You may ask: Behnam, how do you feel now? Well, the answer is quite evident. I feel like a father. I feel I am getting older...Above all, I am happy! :lol: :lol:

The babies were born by caesarean. I am also happy about it! Well, you know.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Dear Mortaza, I've written a post about essay writing to you. have you noticed it?
Dear Oriani and dear Nana, many thanks for your replies. I will write to you soon.
Dear Elham and dear Amal, you know how much I love chatting with you. Sure, I love it. I promise not to miss it(lose it)!
Finally, dear Mohsen I agree with you. :lol:

All the best,
Behnam, 18 October, 2012

Hi dear Behnam,

Wow, you are a father now! I don't know how to express my happiness for you, my lovely brother.
Please accept my CONGRATULATION on this very nice and important event* :-D :-D :-D

One other important role is added to your different roles in life and I'm sure as you have been very successful in all other ones ( a son of your parents, a husband, a friend, a teacher, a brother,..) , you'll be a very great succesful father as well. :-D

'Mehran' and 'Mehradad' are very beautiful names for your sons. I wish they bring much more happiness and "MEHR" to your lovely family. Without any doubt, they will be as strong, successful and lovely as their father!

Wish you and your family the best,
Elham

Dear Behnam,

My heartiest congratulations to you and your wife for your new born babies!! And I am glad that you are all fine. I hope you have a happy life together forever. Tell me my brother! what did you exactly do that God has given to you a twins {-;

This shows, my friend, that not only you are not getting older but you are getting younger and younger. But be more careful Behnam! Next time God may give you a triples {-:

Dear Behnam! I can tell you that those calm and tranquil nights that you and your wife have had is now over! Make yourself ready for not sleeping during nights. To make you aware of their needs, babies just cry! And it is you (as their parents) that should translate their cryings! I should confess that I have not been able to response quickly and correctly to my children's cryings! Sometimes, I have no idea why the baby is crying!!

About your post, of course I noticed it, and I read it twice carefully! Believe it or not, I also made a print of it on a paper for future use! It is very helpful. Why I had not answered you? Well, my wife and my daughter have gone to Mashhad since last Friday. Amirali -- my sone -- couldn't go with them because he is a student and he should go to school during the week. So, I am now both a father and a mother for him! I have to cook, to wash, to clean the house, etc. I also have to wake him up early on the mornings and feed him breakfast, and make him ready for school. When he came back from school, I have to be at home and give him lunch! I have to take care of his homework! Don't get me wrong! I don't do his homework, I just make sure that he does it.

You see! I have been very busy. Tomorrow, my wife will come back and, hopefully, I would be free a little.

Thanks for reading,

All the bast,

Dear Elham,

How are you my friend? Is everything well? I hope you remember me from English-at-Home! You are here and you read all these posts, but you don't write very often! You don't write as much as you used to write. I feel that you just write when you feel it is necessary! This is just to say that I enjoy reading your posts very much and I want you to write more. By the way, thank you very much for gathering together all those posts in English-at-Home, into some PDF files.

Hope to read from you soon.

All the best,
mortaza

Dear Mortaza,

Oh, please accept my apology. I had to say hi to you much sooner than this. ( Lotfan ozre mano bepazirid! :oops: ) I've read all of your posts and I was looking for a suitable time to write to you. Thank you very much for providing this opportunity for me tonight! {-; :-D

That's very kind of you to mention me; thanks for your positive words about my posts. Yes, I'm not as active as before for some reasons, but I never miss reading posts.

To be honest, I enjoy reading your posts a lot. I love it when you write about your family, your wife and your children. Through your lines, I do feel your love for your family and it makes me feel happy for you. You seem to be a very kind husband and father and I feel your sense of responsibilty as a father. Congratulations dear Mortaza* :-D

Please continue writing your posts and essayes, I enjoy reading them a lot.

Oh do you remember our posts about my cousin whome her husband had remarried? I clearly remember your nice attention and support about that topic! :-)

Hi friends,

I want to tell you a story happened with me two days ago...

Two days ago I decided to call an old friend who I wasn't in touch long time ago to congratulate her on her new baby but of course that was too late cause I am lazy in making phone calls and the situation here prevent me from calling...

However, I did the call and I was very happy cause I heard her voice and we talked normally.. I congratulate her and asked her if she and her family are OK and if the situation is calm in their area... Then suddenly she stopped and said: Amal! Didn't you know?!

She told me that her husband who had a cancer, died a month ago. :!!:
In fact, I was verrrry shocked and didn't know what to tell her, I just said may god bless him then she started to tell me how he died and what happened with them before that and she was crying and her voice was very tired, I really wished I could go to her and hug her. :-( :-( :-(

Uh! I know her feelings, although his death was expected but losing a dear person is really hard, I am really sad for her and her kids. :-(
That is really sorrowful, she lost her beloved and now she has two kids who will grow up without their father and she has to raise them alone, it's really a great duty.

At that night, I couldn't sleep at all, I really wanted to cry but I couldn't, I don't know why!!!!!!!!!!!!! :!!: :-(

May God help her and give her patience.

Thanks for reading.
I hope God keep you and your families healthy and happy.

Amal

Dear Behnam,

I would like to offer my congratulations to you for having babies. The twines that you were given in the holy month of Zil hajj is the blessing from God to you. I really happy to hear that, it was also coincidence with the wedding anniversary of Imam Ali AS and Fatima AS, on the same day prophet Mohammad (PBUH put the hand of his only daughter to the hands of Imam Ali. We had happy ceremonies during last week, and it was completed with the football news , Iran soccer team defeated south Korea , while Iran was playing with ten people after one of Iran football player got the red card.

Now you have shouldered the responsibility for being a good father, please offer my congratulation to your wife as well. You have many guests at home who have come to visit the babies, they surly give your wife valuable gifts. I think from now on you have not enough time to be here beside your friends and this is your babies 's right who ask for their father to perform his duty.
Do you agree with me :cry: :cry:
Good Luck

Dear Nana,
I appreciate if you send me the address of a useful site to show the list of companies which take part in Canton Fair, Thanks you ,my Email address is : mohbon@gmail.com.

There is a beautiful historical bridge in Isfahan ,called Pol Khajo, you can see it via Google Images. On Friday mornings some people who assumed they have good voice gather under the bridge and sing together. There is a nice architectural room under the bridge which causes the sound echoes. So when a person start to sing ,his voice seems very well , he enjoy singing and people like to hear his song.

I remember that Behnam wrote a lot about polygamy at the previous forum. I have not seen a man with two wives till now around me. It was something in traditional families. But generally a man was able to choose another wife, when he got his first wife's permission.So you see getting the first wife 's permission is not possible.

You told me that I could buy that lady if I had money ,but I can't believe that a lady is sold by money.. are you joking? :-o :-o

Dear Amal,

How are you honey? Hope you are feeling better now.

You have heard such a very very sad news and I do feel your emotions my dear. What could you say to her?! Oh, if I were you I really didn't know how to react, just like you!
Oh poor your friend... nothing is worth than missing a beloved one, specially a husband for a woman! It's the saddest disaster in a woman's life! :-( :-( :-( :-(

May god help her to tolerate this very difficult situation and give her strength to continue bravely!

Wish to hear happy news from you soon next time,

Elham

Here I take this opportunity to wish the best for all you and congratulate my Muslim friends for coming of Eis al Adha. May I bothered some of you by my words ,please forgive me from bottom of your heart.

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear?!


I'm so sad to know is shucking news. May Allah bliss and forgive him.
When I was at 7th class in school, I knew that one of my classmate has a very painful crash on the road between Damascus and Homs. Her father had died wail she had dangerous Injuries.
I received the news wail I was having my dinner, In that time I stopped eating and went to my room and I started to cray. I forgot the problems between us and forgave her for all what she did against me.

Amal, your tears are very precious and I feel what you feel. You have a sensitive lovely clean heart and I proud to be one of your friends.


Yours sincerely...

Hi friends,

You cannot imagine how happy I was when I read your kind messages. Some people sent me e-cards. I'd like to express my sincere thanks to all friends for their kindness and care towards me. I am really a lucky person, since I've got some valuable treasures. In fact, my friends are real treasures.

I'm sure you are interested in hearing about babies and their mother. Thankfully,they are very well. As my Iranian friends know, in Iran, when a lady gives birth, her mother and sisters help her with chores and looking after babies for 10 days. Obviously, mothers and sisters prefer their own home to in-laws' home. Therefore, for 10 days new mother and the baby(babies in my case! :lol: ) receive service at her father's home. After 10 days, they give babies a wash and throw a name-giving party. New father's early family participate in both washing and name-giving processes too. Before giving name, an old member of families( an experienced person of two families who plays the role of leader among them) tells Azan and Eghame in the right and left ear of babies respectively.*

After the party and giving name, the mother and her baby come to their own home. In some cases, they stay at father's home for 40 days. It depends on many factors, e.g. the distance of family's home from each other, the closeness between two families, the workplace of parents, the social level of families, the behaviour of new father, etc. There is no fixed rules for this ceremony.

In my case, you should know, I wanted my wife to stay at her father's home for 40 days(I didn't say 'I allowed her to stay..'! :lol: ). That's easy and safe for her and the babies. To be honest, it is easier for me too. I am terrible at babysitting. :lol:

I was with them until Friday morning. I caught a nasty cod. Because of catching cold, I had to leave them alone. In fact, they forced me to leave them for the sake of health and safety. :lol: These days, I am alone at home. There is nobody to cook me, to nurse me, to massage me, to care about me! I am not cruel at all. Well, I've done my work! Now, it is their responsibility to look after babies. You should know, giving a lady the chance of being the mother of two sons isn't an easy task! It takes a lot of efforts and attempts. :lol: :oops: If it was easy, Mohsen could do it too! :lol: :lol: :lol: :oops:

Joking aside, in my opinion, women's roles in life is much more important than men's roles! Honestly speaking, we men must confess that we do nothing compared with what ladies carry out in life. Sincerely speaking, women are much more capable and effective than men. I really felt embarrassed, and I still feel guilty of being ineffective in comparison with my wife. Why is she under that much stress, pain, pressure, difficulties? Why is she under that much responsibilities? Just because of being a lady creates so many responsibilities, difficulties, problems, troubles, etc for her! This is not fair. I don't know whether these duties and responsibilities are given to her by nature(their natural talents) or by men! I don't know, but I am sure life-based tasks are not distributed fairly. There is no balance between men and women's responsibilities in life. I guess, throughout the history men have been selfish and cruel.

Some friends have asked me about my feelings and the future. As all fathers, I am happy. On the other hand, I feel as if a heavy load is put on my back. This new role will affect my life both negatively and positively. For example, it will affect my work negatively, since I have to divide my attention.

We haven't finalized our decision about employing a nurse. I personally agree with it, but my wife disagrees!!!

Dear friends, Elham, Mohsen, Amal, Mortaza, Nana, Wilzin, Oriani...thank you very much for your friendly messages. I'd have replied you individually, but unfortunately, I am pressed for time. I really love reading your posts and writing to you. I do feel proud of you.

I wish you happy moments in life. Thank you very much indeed.


All the best,
Behnam, 21 October, 2012

Hi Elham,

How are you? How do you spend your days?

Thanks dear for your care and wishes for my friend and me. Thank God I am better but since I heard that news till now, I think of her everyday and pray for her.
You are right dear, missing a husband is the saddest disaster in a woman's life, especially for my friend, you can't imagine how much she loved him. May God help her! :-(

Dear, as you told me yesterday the weather was rainy in Iran as it was here in Syria, are you happy with the rain? Don't you think that it's too early for it?! Do you believe that this winter will be colder than the past years?

Hi Wilzin,

How are you?

Thanks for your care about me and thanks for your support.

Your story really made me sad.. lossing a father isn't an easy thing too. { الله يحفظ و يخلي أبي و أبوك}

Emm, my friend, although you are sensitive and you always tell me about your feelings and some emotional stories but I don't know why I found this post is different. I felt that your writing style was like someone I know.. So what's going on?! :lol: {-;

Dear friends,

While I was reading Wilzin post, some questions came to my mind and I really love to hear your opinions and your answers about them, the questions are:

If someone hurt you, what would you do?! Would you forget and forgive after a while? Or would you stil remember the situation but you forgive the person and deal normaily with them?!

If you had a chance in the future to hurt that person back, would you take the opportunity? Do you think that getting revenge makes your pain less?

Looking forward to hear from you all.

Best wishes.
Amal

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dear ?!


Oh my dear I didn't wrote the last post to make you sad, Please forgive me.
As an answer to your questions: If that person was a dear to me, I would forgave him/her and forgot after a while. But if not may be I couldn't forgot, It depends on the action and its consequences.
Have nice days full of happiness, peace of mind, relaxing, and love from all the depths of your heart.


Yours sincerely...

Hi Setayesh,

Thank you very much for your friendly message. That's very kind of you not to forget your old pen-pals.

It was very nice to hear about your great success in studying MA at your favourite university. You deserve it. According to what your sister wrote, you've got a part-time job in a bank. This a great chance to get familiar with workplaces and earn money. I am sure you are excellent at money making. :lol: Congratulations on both; working and studying in your desired field.

How is Sara? I hope she is fine. Give my warmest regards to her and tell her I said hi.

Thank you for following the thread.

All the best,

Hi Amal,

How are you? I hope you are happy and healthy.

It is autumn and time for ladies to review their memories. :lol: Time for walking under the slight rain and breaking dry leaves. Time for enjoying the colourful scenery. I wish you happy moments.

Your questions are quite difficult. That's not easy to give them proper answers. However, thanks to the rich documents in Islam, there is a way to start dealing with such emotion-based questions. {-:

Imam Ali has said,"The pleasure of forgiveness is greater than the pleasure of revenge!" A very short look at this meaningful sentence shows people often take revenge for getting pleasure! However, we may not know that forgiving makes our heart relaxed and comfortable, while seeking revenge makes our heart heavy and our mind busy. By the way, after taking revenge, we are always in danger of receiving revenge from others. This process may be repeated, since we are not the last person who looks for a way to punish someone. As you know, in the past, Arab people used to fight for years. Fighting was their main job. The main reason of those fights was revenging! Our prophet Mohammad stopped them from fighting, by teaching them how to forgive others. Forgiveness results in friendship, and sincere friendship results in Islamic Empire after 23 years. Oh, what a big job!

Dear Amal, many people give speech, but a few of them practise what they preach! Speaking about forging is easy in theory, but it is very difficult in practice.

For me, it depends of the kind of offense and the amount of harm someone does on me! In the serious cases, I punish the offenders severely. However, in less important matters, I forget and forgive easily. I seldom seek revenge for people who make mistakes. I am also very kind with my friends. I am patient with them. I rarely break a friendship, but if I find out that a friend or even someone from my early family or close relatives is trying to fool me, I may allow them to fool me once. However, if they think of me as an easy prey, so their misinterpretation may tempt them to fool me twice, in this case, I punish them severely! Oh my God, how ridiculous their faces become after seeing a lion in a cottage, where they had thought to be empty! :lol: :lol: :lol:

There is a nice saying 'your fool me once, shame on you. You fool me twice, shame on me'! We shouldn't let someone fool us twice. This is extremely important in human beings' relationships.

Everybody has got thresholds as well as red lines. It is very good to have high thresholds, but I don't recommend wide lines. Our red lines must be as narrow and sharp as possible. Someone may mistakenly passes our red lines. That isn't a serious threat. But, if they don't respect our borders, nothing can stop them like a severe punishment.

Your questions come from another field which is womanish. I don't know about their philosophy in life. However, let me tell you something too direct. If a person has fooled you and has hurt your feelings, either forgive him or punish him; but how? There are positive ways for punishing. You can study hard to get a degree, then can work, then marry someone and try your best to have a happy life with successful children. The greater success, the severer punishment! In the contrary, hatred and keeping your mind busy lead to misery. In this case, you are punishing yourself not the offenders.

The final point is your worry about forgetting. Human beings never forget. The events are saved in brain cells. We may refer to them rarely, but they are there forever. Human beings get used to things. They never forget them. Therefore, if you haven't forgotten something bad related to the past, don't worry. It is almost the same with all people. Try to make yourself busy with other things. It will make you refer to the cells rarely. The more hobbies, the less scan of the brain, the less pain!

I hope you will mange to change your mood from negative to positive soon. Rely on God!


All the best,
Behnam, 24 October, 2012

Hi dear Amal,

Happy Eid to you and your family* :-)

It's not soon for the rain fall honey. It's the second month of the autumn and lots of rain falls are expected. I hope so.

About your questions...! I have this habit to express my sadness when some one hurts me. I don't keep silent , I believe this is his right to know it. I let the person know what he has done. Maybe that person doesn't know and hasn't understood that he's made mistake. If the person understands me and my pain, he's done me the biggest favor he could, and I feel calm and relaxed ;I am sooooooo grateful of him! :-D
If not, he hurts me for the second time and leaves a scar on my heart and soul! It should be mentioned that it matters how important the person and the matter is to me! In this case I just wait and hope as time passes, he would think about it, understand it and feel regret! That's enough for me! Instead of hearing " please forgive me" I do prefer to make sure that there is no misunderstanding anymore and the person is aware of his mistakes!

anyway,I try to forgive. I can't claim I forget easily, no , I can't. Somewhere in my mind it remains , if it wasimportant,but I never think of revange! Never!

You know Amal, this bothers me more when I myself has hurt or annoyed some one! I can forgive others easily but when it comes to my own mistakes I punish myself and never forgive Elham! Knowing someone is sad with me is much more painful that being sad and hurt from others!

Thanks for reading!

Kindness is very good.
It's good to be kind.
We all need to be treated kindly.
There are times in life that we need kindness more.

Kindness is good.
We get used to other's kindness with us.
Kindness is sweet!
We miss other's kindness wityh us.
I love to be kind too.
But there are many people who are kinder than me.
I need to be kind with myself!

Kindness is good. We have to be kind.
We all need to be treated kindly.
Kindness is the best thing in the world.
Kindness is good; we get used to other's kindess with us.

I need some kindness....
We all need kindness...

There are people who can be kind with us!
Kindness is sweet when this is not aimed to be kindness, but when it comes from a kind nature!

I need your kindness, but when you don't understand that it's kindness! You just start to say or do sth and you don't know that it's kindness and that means you care for me! It's just me that feel it. And that's nautural kindness. This comes from your kind nature not your decesion to be kind and I adore that kindness....
.
.
.

And you, the kindest of kinds! I feel calm when I think of your natural kindness! I love your kindness with me! I need it, I need it a lot! Please be kind with me! Oh no, no nooo.... you shouldn't decide to be kind with me... you should be kind by your nature and YOU ARE! I have faith in your kindness , THE KINDEST OF KINDS! It's calming to know at least you exist! Thankssssssssssssssssss my dear God , thankssssssssssssssssssss my lovliest! I love you and your kindness. :-)

Hi Behnam,

Many thanks for your kind reply.And thanks a lot for all those good words.yes, I've been accepted in Allame university and got a job in bank.to be honest,my job is a full time job not a part-time. But my boss gives me some hours off to go to university.As a persian saying goes it's very difficult to lift two watermelon with one hand(=managing 2 difficult activities at the same time), I'm just trying to see what would the result be in the end. I hope I don't make myself disappointed. {-;

Sara is fine,we are still classmates,we both have been accepted at a same University {-; .she's also working.she's got a part time job in a firm. she's gave regards to you too.

I can hear that it's raining outside, it's gradually getting cold. take care of yourself,babies and their mother in such a changeable weather.

Best regards,

Setayesh

Dear Amal,

Before answering your question,I want to tell you a story.A woman was dump by her husband because he loved a young and beautiful girl when she was in 40 years old.She had bring up her daughter and pay for the mortgage all by herself.At resent she found she got the renal failure and had to maintain her life in hemodialysis every two days.The worse thing is the company she worked for was close down.Do you think she is an unlucky woman?That is the woman I visit last weekend.She said to me,she regrets she havn't taken care of herself and she tell me the most important thing is your healthy, and nothing can compare with it.She would find a job at home and wants to live her life happily every day in future with her daughter.
Come back your question"if someone hurt you, what would you do?",my answer is my most important thing is live my life and other things are piece of cake.You can just laugh off and forget that people who hurt you.They are nonentities for you.

Best wish

Nana

Dear Behanm,

I hope your babies and wife are health and happy.

For you,as a new father,everyday is rich and pleasure.I shouldn't bother you.However one question is confused me and I need your answer.As you see the post I wrote to Amal,I visited a friend last weekend.She divorced, got the renal failure,lost her job.Every unlucky thing takes place on her.But she is a nice and good person.She havn't done a bad thing or hurt other people.Even if her husband treats her so badly,she wouldn't hate him.Why she meet so many unlucky things. It's said "Give cake and ale to perfect soul".God should bless that people who is doing good thing?Can you give me a answer?

Best regards

Nana

Hi Nana,

Thank you very much for your kind message. Your question is one of the most difficult questions in the world. I've got some unorganized materials in my mind, but it takes me some time to organize them. I won't answer to your question, since nobody can answer such a difficult question, but I promise to write something about it.

All the best,

Dear Behnam,

I miss you and other friends too, I am a little busy ,because of one week resting, travelling to Mashhad.
It is said that traveling broadens the mind or, in other words, broadens an individual’s life experiences. My experience from traveling is that Mashhad was the land of wealth and money.
Every year millions of people from different cities of Iran and other countries come to visit the shrine and there are thousands of hotel in Mashad to locate the people. Location ,foods , transportation and the gifts bought by traveller are charges spent by travellers in Mashhad and make the Mashhad people richer and richer.

Mashad is one the important and big cities of Iran . It is famous , because the mausoleum of a holy man ( Imam Reza AS). Imam Reza AS is the eighth Imam of twelve Imams. Imam Reza AS was murdered by Al-Ma'mun in 818. The Shrine of Imam Reza is the largest complex in the world by dimension. The biggest courtyards in one the Imam Reza 's complex is 12000 S/M. Also contained within the complex include: the Goharshad Mosque, a museum, a library, four seminaries, a cemetery, the Razavi University of Islamic Sciences, a dining hall for pilgrims, vast prayer halls, and many other buildings.

My brother and his wife ,my wife and I were 4 people who went to Mashhad by my brother's car. Two days on the way, one night resting in Tehran and 4 days in Mashhad was the itinerary for the trip .

Finally I am very happy and satisfy with this trip , but when I come back to Isfahan I had to face with my boss and fallen behind many work that I don't incline to do that.

Dear Nana,

How are you honey?

What you have asked from Behnam is actually everyone's question! There are two things in my mind when I think of your question!

First: I remember this Farsi saying: ( Harke dar in bazm mogharrab tar ast, jame bala bishtarash midehand) ! It means : The more you are good and dear to god, the more you would be tested by him and the more you come across difficulties!!!!

Second: I ask myself: Why should we expect good and nice people to have a good and easy life??? Should we believe that just bad people should be punished and face difficulties? Yes, our logic says there is no reason to feel pain when you have done nothing bad and wrong and it bothers us to see good people in trouble! One of my aunts is experiancing a very difficult time with his husband! I always ask, " She has been a very good and helpful and decent girl, why should she experiance such problems? Why couldn't she marry with a good man?!!!

But dear Behnam always says: The way we look at things and judge as human beings is way different with God's look and calculations! Sometimes when I really can't digest things, I remember this and get calm.
Oh dear Nana, have you ever deeply felt how good it is that there is somebody who knows everything and understands everything? Someone who can judge things perfectly and have the power to change everything??? Oh my god, thaks that you exist! :-D

Dear Nana, today I finished reading a nice book named " Desert flower". It's autobiography of Waris Dirie. I recommend you to find the book and read it. There is even a movie made on her lifestory. The main idea of this book is fighting against female genital mutilation (FGM), which she herself has been one of its victims. But my purpose is not writing about that matter.
Reading this book and knowing about difficulties women should deal with all over the world, I learnt how strong a woman can be! How stronger than men a woman can be! How strong a wonam should be!

You know, I love myself being a woman! I know that I have a magical power inside, I know that being a woman, I can expriance so many wonderful things, I can be so effective and I can enjoy myself alot. I know that being a woman is not easy at all but I want to experiance it by all my heart and soul! :-)

Thanks for reading,
Elham

It was soooooooo sad when I heard a young woman said this sentence with tears in her eyes:
" I don't want to have child from my husband!" !!!!!!!!!!!! :-( :-( :-( :cry: :cry: :cry:

It made me very upset since I believe we women love our husbands to have child from HIM and just HIM! We marry someone when we feel we love him to be the father of our children, isn't it? She said: " I'm afraid I'm pragnant, I don't want any child from him"! Ohhh, what a disaster! :-( :-( :-( ......

I hope you have a good time beside your family , and have an enjoyable party.

Dear Elham,

I appreciate your detail reply and it must take your much time.I red your post times and times again.Every time I have different feeling.I know no one who can judge things perfectly and have the power to change everything.I just want good man has a happy ending and bad man has a bad ending.I know this is only exist in the movie.Maybe the difficulties you experience is the test which the God give you as you said.

I can't find the book named " Desert flower" but I can find the movie.After I finish watching the movie,I will share my feeling with you.But I love your sentence in your post of the last two paragraphs-'how strong a woman can be! How stronger than men a woman can be! How strong a woman should be'. I also love your sentence -"I love myself being a woman! I know that I have a magical power inside, I know that being a woman, I can experience so many wonderful things, I can be so effective and I can enjoy myself also. I know that being a woman is not easy at all but I want to experience it by all my heart and soul!". It makes me as proud as a woman.Let's hug as we are woman.

Have a good day

Nana

Hi friends,

How are you? How is the life? I

hope everything is going well with you.

Thanks a lot for replying my questions, I really appreciated.

You are right Wilzin, we forgive and forget our beloved mistakes no matter how big the problem was. However, for me, I forgive people and deal with them normally but can't forget the huge amount of pain which they cause it to me.

Dear Behnam, Thanks for your valuable tips, I have benefited from them a lot.

You are right, we shouldn't let other people to fool us two times from the same action.

Last week I read a story about a man who went to a zoo and visited the lion cage. Although there was an alert sign that no one should put his hands inside the cage but he ignored it and entered his hand, the lion scratched it and he was taken to the hospital. He thought "Why the lion attacked me while I just wanted to play with him and for sure the lion didn't mean it I will forgive him"..

In the next week he came to the lion. Again he put his hands in the cage, the lion this time ate them. People run to help him and while doing that he shouted "I know that you were afraid and I am not sad with you, I forgive you but I wont forget!".

The moral of the story is that even though having pure intentions about our and other's intentions is important. However, we shouldn't be too much fool.

Dear Elham, thanks for answering me. Your habit is really good, I wish I was like you! Sadly, when someone hurts me, I keep silent. :(

Dear Nana, I am really sad to hear about your friend but I am sure that she is a fighter and she is very strong. Bring up a daughter isn't an easy job. May god help her.

In the end, I really want to thank all my friends for there wishes. You made me really happy! I am proud of you. Wish you a happy and healthy life full of joy without any hate and regret.

Amal

Dear Nana,

How are you my nice friend? Hope you are enjoying your life. :-)

Thanks for your kind post to me. You are exactly right. I couldn't agree more with you on this opinion of you: "I just want good man has a happy ending and bad man has a bad ending"!
And that is just what makes me believe in the Judgement day! I do have faith in the God and the other world since a sound deep down says: all my unanswered questions should have answers and there is some one who knows them, there should be a hidden justice, so that there should be a fair powerful judge who can recognize the facts.

When I see that much injustice in the world, that much sad and unfair events for good people, that much happy lives for bad people, the only thing that helps me tolerate it is to believe in the excistance of a holy, loving, JUST, mighty, everlasting, kind and powerful creator who knows everything and hasn't let us free to do whatever we want without any consequence!


A big kind and warm hug just for you , the beautiful sweet-smelling flower* :-D :-D :-D

All the best,
Elham

Hi Dear Friends,

Sorry for being absent here for days, I would like to bring a simle on your face by sharing the following intructive jock.

A famous inspirational speaker said:
"Best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman, who wasn't my wife"
Audience was in shock and silence..
He added: "she was my mother"
A big round of applause & laughter!

A very daring husbnd tried to crack this at home
After a dinner, he said loudly to his wife in the kitchen:
"Best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman, who wasn't my wife"
standing for a moment, trying to recall the second line of that speaker

by the time he gained his senses,

5 ways to “Make my friend happy” !

Our friends are a massively important part of our lives. A problem shared is a problem halved, and a joyful moment shared is a joyful moment magnified by a million! So when life gets in the way and we find our buddy in a state less-than-great, we want to do everything we can to make them happy again. From a higher perspective, here are some ways to help your friend find their true inner happiness again.

#1

Talk to your friend about what really makes them happy and encourage these activities. Forget the actual situation they’re facing, and focus on their simple pleasures. Think painting, dancing, writing, favourite magazine, a favourite place. Set up a session doing one of these things they love.

#2

Help your friend identify The Next Step. Progress is the key to moving out of a horrible place and will make you feel alive again. Think of 3 ways – no matter how silly or small they may feel, and TAKE that next step. Feeling like they’re doing something to help themselves will be a big help.


#3

Remind your friend that we have the power to move past anything in life and create our new life from NOW. Grab a notebook and have fun with your friend thinking up and designing your dream life. Then bite the bullet and challenge each other to pursue your dreams!

#4

Ask your friend what music makes them happy (or used to) and burn them a mix-CD. This will make them aware that you’re trying to help, without interfering too much. Happy music sends subliminal messages to the deep dark corners of our minds and will start to subconsciously turn our happy wheels again.

#5

Be silly, giggle, dance, sing, play. Light relief will remind your friend that life’s not all that serious after all, or at the very least take their mind off the crud they’re going through right now. They’ll be so grateful to you PLUS you get to have fun with your friend :)

Remember, your friend is probably experiencing their downtimes to learn & grow, and become stronger, wiser, happier and more aligned with their true happi self. This reminds me of a Happi Card: “The greatest spiritual growth comes from suffering. Let the bad times roll!!”. And it’s true – think of your worst times, and the great choices and changes we made because of them.

Remember, an uphappy person can only make themselves truly happy again when they are ready to move on. You can’t do it for them, so don’t feel bad if the steps above don’t change your friends state, just be there for them when they need you and believe that they will be back at their optimum state as soon as possible.

Dear Friends,

Poeple should not beleive what they receive in the mail box. Maybe the mail came to you box wrongly . Many time I receive in my mail box that I have won a prize in a lottery . but I don't belive it. sometime invitation , and giving a news , look at the following story.


A couple going on vacation but his wife was on a business trip so he went to the destination first and his wife would meet him the next day.

When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.

Unfortunately, when typing her address, he mistyped a letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before.

When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Dearest Wife,
Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

P.S. Sure is hot down here

Happy Eid al-Mubahalah to my Muslim Friends

Tomorrow is a feast day and the event of Mubabalah.

Glorious Quran Chapter 3 Verse 61:
And unto him who disputeth with thee therein after the knowledge hath come unto thee, Say ! ( O' Our Apostle Muhammad ! ) ( Unto them ) come ye, let us summon our sons, and ( ye summon ) your sons, and ( we summon ) our women and ( ye ) your women, and ( we summon ) ourselves and then let us invoke the curse of God on the liars !

This verse refers to the famous event of ' al-Mubahalah ' which took place in the year 10 A.H against the Christians of Najran. A deputation of 60 Christians of Najran headed by Abdul Masih their chief monkpriest came and discussed with the Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) the personality of Hazrat Eesa ( as ). The Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) told them not to deify Jesus for he was only a mortal created by God, and not God Himself. Then they asked who the father of Jesus was. By this, they thought that since he was born without a father the Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) would helplessly accept Jesus' father being God himself. In reply to this question was revealed the Verse
Verily, similitude of Jesus with God is as the similitude of Adam; He created him out of dust then said He unto him BE, and he became.

When the Christians did not agree to this line of reasoning, then this verse was revealed enjoining upon the Prophet ( pbuh&f ) to call the Christians to Mubahalah. To this the Christians agreed and they wanted to return to their place and would have the Mubahalah the next day.
Early next morning the Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) sent Salman al Farsi ( May Allah be well pleased with him ) to the open place, fixed outside the city for the historic event, to erect a small shelter for himself and those he intended to take along with him for the contest. On the opposite side appeared the Christian prists, while at the appointed hour the Christians witnessed the Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) entering the field with Imam Hussain ( as ) in his lap, Imam Hasan ( as ) holding his finger, and walking beside him, Lady Fatima ( as ) and followed by Imam Ali al Murtaza ( as ). The Prophet ( as ) on reaching the appointed spot stationed himself with his daughter, her two sons and her husband, raising his hands towards the heaven said :
Lord these are the People of my House
The Chief Monk on knowing that the baby in the lap of the Prophet ( pbuh&f ) was his young grandson, Imam Hussain ( as ), the child walking holding the Prophet's ( pbuh&f ) hand was his first grandson, Imam Hasan ( as ), the Lady behind him was daughter, his only surviving issue was Fatima ( as ) the mother of the two children and the one who followed the Lady was his son in law, the husband of Fatima ( as ), addressed the huge crowd of the people who had gathered on the spot, and addressed them saying
By God, I see the faces which, if they pray to God for mountains to move from their places, the mountains will immediately move !
O believers in the Jesus of Nazareth, I will tell you the truth that should ye fail to enter into some agreement with Muhammad and if these souls whom Muhammad has brought with him, curse you, ye will be wiped out of existence to the last day of the life of the earth !
The people readily agreed to the advice counseled by their Leader. They beseeched the Holy Prophet ( pbuh&f ) to give up the idea of the agreed Mubahalah and requested for themselves to be allowed to continue their faith, offering to pay ' Jizya '.

Hi Dear Friend,

Parents some times try to treat their childern as a teacher, but unfortuatly they teach the childern to tell lie. even in short discussion they spoil their own personality ,look at the following story

A curious child asked his mother: “Mommy, why are some of your hairs turning grey?”

The mother tried to use this occasion to teach her child: “It is because of you, dear. Every bad action of yours will turn one of my hairs grey!”
The child replied innocently: “Now I know why grandmother has only grey hairs on her head.”

Dear Friends,

There is a proverb that says: what goes around comes around. It means that what we do as an action ,it is like a point in a circle which one day it comes back to us . Whatever we do, well or bad it will turn back one day.

whatever we do will turn back to us someday. I think what we have to do to the others is just treat them with our love, and the love will turn back to us someday. If the others don't give it back to us, I'm sure Allah will give it back to us.


Look at the following story

One day a man saw an old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her car and got out. His car was still sputtering when he approached her.

Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you. He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Reza.”

Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Reza crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.
As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from Shahinsahr and was only just passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid.

Reza just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped. Reza never thought twice about being paid. This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way.
He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Reza added, “And think of me.”
He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight.

A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet face. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Reza.

After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be. Then she noticed something written on the napkin.

There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: “You don’t owe me anything. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you.”
Under the napkin were four more $100 bills.

Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard….

She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, “Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Reza.”

Hi Friends,

First of all, I should say that if there is only one person in the world who misses you, it is Iranian Behnam. I've missed you terribly. How are you my dearest friends? I hope all is going well with you and you are enjoying every minute of your beautiful life.

You cannot imagine how beautiful this part of Tehran is. The Sun is shining friendly; the birds are singing beautifully; the leaves are falling down dancing freely, and Behnam is walking happily! I have to say again that I LOVE AUTUMN VERY MUCH.

Secondly, after greeting warmly and describing the beauty of autumn briefly, I am happy to say that you made me win again. You are great supporters, nice winner makers, and generous choosers! I am nothing without you. Thank you very much indeed.

Finally, I'd like to divide this happiness and success with you. Please kindly visit the following link and read my comment on it.

I'm very pressed for time these days. I've got many things to do. By the end of this week, I will be too busy to write in the thread. I apologize for inactiveness. I promise to compensate.

All the best,
Behnam, 10 November, 2012

Dear Mohsen,

Thank you for sharing two stories.You want to tell us the first story is don't lie to children,the second is do not let this chain of love end with you.I agree you with the first thing ,but not the second thing.Long long ago,I believed the true that you give your hand to a man when he is in need.Now I don't dare do a good thing because the society is changing.In china most of us will not bring a man to hospital when he has had a car accident.Do you know why?Because the man will tell the police that man who help him is the troublemaker,that man who do a good thing faces the bad situation,however.It happens many times.No one try to change this situation.When you see a poor waif who beg for you in the street,you shouldn't give him some money because behind this children is the criminal gang .The more money you give, the more bad treatment the waif get. I am so disappointed to tell you these things take place in China.Now you know why I can't believe the thing"do not let this chain of love end with you".

Have a good day

Nana

Dear Nana,

I got what you said , If you help others , you may be caught in difficulties and bad situation. ok you are right ,I agree with you . but if you will be in a safe situation which has not make a problem for , do you help others or not!!? Because at this time you should put your time for other, spend your money for others, maybe you are such a of people who are not ready to spend time and money for others, because it has not any benefit for you.
:idea: But I think whatever we do ,one day the result of it will be back to us. Sure It will be back sooner or later..

Read another story from Reza

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin coin left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “My father has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Reza left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Reza was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Reza requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

Hi dear Nana,

Thanks for your post. What did you buy? Couldn't you buy for your friends too?! {-;

Emmm, you know, I'm a very difficult person in shopping. It happens a lot that I buy sth, bring it home and I dislike it!!! I have sth special in my mind and when I go shopping I just look for that. The sad thing is that rarely I find what I want when I need!
On the other hand, I'm not patient in shopping and prefer ending it as soon as possible! Emmm, to be more clear, I like to see someone wearing sth, like it, ask for the store, go straightly there and buy it! This is very good, isn't it? :lol: :lol: :lol:

One of my concerns these days is for winter clothes and some night dresses! If there were a place where I could find all I want, I would be on the seventh heaven! {-:

I have heard a lot about China's clothes and shoes. I have also heard the prices are so high there. If I were rich enough, I would defenrtly travel to China.
I've never done shopping on the net. I'm afraid the prices are not real ones! But I like it; why not?! This way I can save time.

Thanks for reading,
Elham

Hi Elham,

Apparently nobody in this forum want to write something , I would like to share this story for you, maybe it will be useful

Early on in their engagement, he sat near his fiancée saying, "Oh, how I love you...in fact I adore you, you are my life..." He uttered words of love that she vainly enjoyed listening to. He told her that he could hardly wait for their wedding day, as life away from her was meaningless to him. He wondered how he had managed to live before knowing her. He assured her that she was the source of happiness in his life. He was sure to rent a great house that would match his feelings. They would spend their honeymoon abroad, in one of the western capitals.

He carried on talking, repeating words of love, while his girl was lost in her daydreams, which had at last come true. Suddenly she was aware of her hair dropping across her forehead. She raised her hand to put it in place and said flirtatiously, "You were in such a hurry that you did not even give me time to have my hair done."
He said, "Your hair is lovely anyway, and you are quite beautiful."
She smiled, proudly encouraging him to praise her still more. She said, "You did not even wait for me to get my new dress from the tailor."
He said, "Have not I said that this does not matter. I never worry about such things as my real aim has been reached."
She eagerly said, "Are you quite sure?" He said,
"Yes. I swear by my love, that I mean every word."
She said, "I am very happy. I have always hoped to get a husband who does not care for material things..."
He said, "I am just like that, you can be sure."
She went on, "You know that money is something that comes and goes. I don't care much for it. In fact, I give all of my salary to my father who suffers financial difficulties."
At first he did not answer, then he said: "It is nice that you help your father. Financial problems cannot be tolerated. Then I suppose we can't rent a big house!"



She said, "Whether big or small, it does not matter .It should at least be comfortable."
He said, "Yes, there should be all the necessary amenities: a refrigerator, a cooler, a washing machine..."
She interrupted him saying, "Such items can be bought one by one. At first we can start a simple life. You know that at present my father cannot help us."
He was silent again. He looked at his watch and then said, "Simplicity is nice. I think we should not go abroad! "
She answered, "Yes, that is much better. You know I must pay back my debts!"
No longer he could conceal his disappointment, so he said sharply, "Then, your salary is already spent in advance!"
She said, "Nearly!"
He moved in discomfort saying, "I, myself am in debt, so, I'd better not marry at present."
Standing up he said, "We may not meet again. I wish you good luck!"
He left quickly as if running away from a monster! Only few minutes before he had spoken words of love and claimed that he could not live without her. The waiter came to her with the bill that the young man had not paid.
Amused she said to herself, “I guessed right! I was right to lie about my wealth. How stupid he is! He never thought I was testing him. My bank balance is good and I am not in debt to anyone! Anyway, it was a good experience for me, even if it was a bad bargain."

Hi Mohsen,

How are you?

I believe that winter is family season. I love to set near the fireplace and listen to my family, this really makes me warm and gives me an inner pace. But it makes me a little lazy so forgive me cause I don't write a lot.

Thanks Mohsen for sharing us those useful and interesting stories, I really enjoyed reading them!

Dear, I loved your last story a lot.The woman in it was really smart.
Behnam has always said : Actions speak louder than words. However, we -women- don't always follow or care about this rule, we love to hear sweet and love words although this is wrong especially when its relate to an emotional matter cause even if we got a good experience and lesson but it's very harmful and break our hearts.

Please keep sharing us those useful stories. Individually I really like to read more so please would you mind giving me the link which you take them from.

Thanks in advanced.

Best wishes

In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to approach.
However, when it does draw near, we fear what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not ruled by our will or by what we do.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think they can seduce Love through submission, power, beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals.
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to be loved in return, are wasting their time.
Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.
Contradictions are what make love grow. Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.
Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.

Hi Amal...

How are you my dearest dead ever?!

I like what you Gleaned from the net especially this sentence...
[amal] wrote:Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.
Yeah my dearest dead that is true and I like to say "Life is build on love base and love is its axis"
Love is one of few things that you can't bey with money. I resemble love as a planet and love words are its people. they are very friendly creatures to deal with.
Without love there is no husband and wife, no father and mother, no son and daughter, on brother and sister, no you and me.

Have nice days full of love...

Hi friends,

You cannot imagine how much I've missed you. I am really dying for you. Thank you very much for keeping the thread active. I love reading your posts. I check the thread EVERYDAY, but I was too busy to post something. Fortunately, I will be off for about 4 days. Answering to Nana's difficult question(Thank you dear Elham for reminding me. I'd forgotten it completely), and writing a long report-formed post to Elham are on my schedule. I'll will carry out these two important tasks on the following days.

Oh, I am happy to read some nice expressions and descriptions about love. I smell the smell of love from the thread. How pleasant it is!

One thing should be mentioned over and over again. I personally have read many love stories related to different cultures. I am also familiar with love. I know what love is. Love without tolerance, sacrificing, respect, patience, forgiveness, care and support is a transitory passion; a desire based on selfishness and neediness.

I am sorry to say that for many men love is as a powerful and effective tool(key) to unlock the gate and enter the amazing land of women. After grazing for some time, and spoiling the beauty of the garden men often leave and their footprints are some children who need a lot of attempts and efforts to be grown up! In many cases, there is no footprint, but the garden is spoiled! Oh my God! Regardless of big responsibilities, children can be at least the evidence of unspoiled beautiful old garden. However, as I said, in many cases, men are even too selfish to leave footprints!

I believe there is some significant points for ladies. Hehehehe...LOL :lol:

Sorry, I have to leave quickly.

All the best,
Behnam, 20 November, 2012

Dear Mohsen,

Maybe what you said is right.

Last weekend I told my aunt about what it happen to my friend. She explain the good man meet the bad things because of the result of the previous life in Confucianism.Do you believe it is a man has the previous life?If you believe,you think what is your previous life?

Best regards

Nana

Hi Amal,

An untimely winter has come to my city Isfahan, cold raining here and snowy in small towns that are located on the slope of mountains near to Isfahan. Isfahan has experienced drought for four consecutive years — we welcome this heavy winter rainfall. While we’re pleased by the rainfall, we should continue respecting to the need for water conservation.
Sorry for being late in reply , I spend my leisure time in mourning parties , The first 10 days of Moharam is particular days for us and we have ceremony for anniversary of Imam Hossien Martyrdom in the mosques.
It is my pleasure that you enjoyed reading the stories. I gather the stories form my mail box , some group of people who are my friends sometimes send me story ,we send the stories to each other in a circle .
That is true that action speak louder than words , but my dear friend be careful ,some people acts are fake ,they achieved their aim by canning. They pretend that they are open minded , help others , show their love and kindness . But they try to attract people to manipulate their thoughts and acts.

Here is another story , I hope you enjoy it.

WHEN A LIZARD CAN, WHY CAN"T WE?
This is a true story that happened in Japan .
In order to renovate the house,someone in Japan breaks open the wall.Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls .
When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet.He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail,it was nailed 10 years ago when the house was first built.
What happened? The lizard has survived in such position for 10 years!!!!!!! !!!
In a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling.Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years!!! Without moving a single step--since its foot was nailed!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what andhow it has been eating.
Later, not knowing from where it came appears another lizard, with food in its mouth.
Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply.For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 10 years...
Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 10 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Think, will u do that to your partner?
Think that will you do it to your Mom, who brought you after a big struggle of nine long months?
Or at least to your Dad, Friends, Co-workers, brothers and Sisters?
Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can"t.
As information and communication technology advances ,
our access to information becomes faster and faster.
But the distance between human beings . . . is it getting closer as well?
Please never abandon your loved ones
Never Say U R Busy When They Really Need You ...
You May Have The Entire World At Your Feet.....
But You Might Be The Only World To Them....
A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loves you thru all odds..
Before you say something just remember?It takes a moment to Break but an entire life to
make...
To Live Use Heart and to Survive use Brains.
Then Life would be a paradise unfurling only Love Joy and Happiness

Hi Friends,

Thankfully, our dear friend Mohsen has agreed that 'actions speak louder than words'. However, he has wisely introduced another topic which is related to another area of knowledge. According to him, now, we should separate fakes from facts. We should also recognize sincere people from pretentious ones. I agree with him. I'd like to thank Mohsen for his nice points.

How can we realize who is who?

First of all, it should be kept in mind that as a general rule, for all creatures, necessity is the main engine of movement! What does it mean? It means right now Behnam is writing these things for some purposes. He is looking for something, maybe he is looking for fame, attention, kindness, etc. Perhaps he is showing off in order to be the center of attention. Maybe, he has found an excuse to write something as well as practise English. Therefore, it is obvious that Behnam is trying to get some benefits from this action(writing). I am sure you know that benefits can be financial or spiritual.

So far, we know that we are all benefit-oriented creatures. We also know that benefits are different. It doesn't necessarily mean that what we do is beneficial. Sometimes we target to benefit(our intention is getting benefit) but the result does not meet our intention. In some cases, something is beneficial for someone, but others may have different ideas. Anyway, people have different ideas about benefit and loss. It depends-to a great extent-on our philosophy of life.

Let's return to the first paragraph. I believe, we should not be too pessimistic about people and the intention of their actions. We should have our own equations in the life. In other words, we ought to have our own goals. On the way of achieving our goals, if someone's actions help us with easier and earlier achievement, we can welcome their actions. This simply means a win-win interaction. Therefore, a win-win interaction(relationship, cooperation, etc.) is OK, no matter what the intention of people is.

Finally, we all know that nothing is perfect in the entire universe, since perfection means prevention to betterment, progress, movement . When evaluating something(an action), we should consider both positiveness and negativeness. After analyzing carefully, we should calculate all pluses and minuses. If the result is positive, that's beneficial for us. When calculation shows that the total is negative, it is against our goals. All in all, I believe, we had better focus on our own goals(equations), instead of too much pessimist and suspicion.

Unfortunately, being in the classrooms for years and living with teacher parents have made me sound as a teacher in every circumstance. I am neither giving tips, nor teaching, nor advising. The style of my writing is like I am giving tips, but I don't actually. I am expressing my ideas. I hope nobody will get upset or annoyed from my way of writing. I don't mean to insult anybody.

These are my ideas. I also don't want to make you think of me as an open-minded person. There is no valid standard for evaluating the amount of open-mindedness or close-mindedness.

All the best,
Behnam, 21 November, 2012

Hi dear Behnam, Amal and Mohsen,

Reading your opinions about this idea that " Actions speaks louder that words" sth came to my mind, I wanna share it with you.

I DO BELIEVE, heart speaks to heart. As we say in Farsi : " Harche az del barayad, lajaran bar del neshinad."

While reading Mohsen's post this saying came to my mind. I believe we CAN recognize fake feelings and words from true ones. Deep down we know how much the person means his words and actions. BUT... sometimes we want to believe fake ones since it is pleasant to us and we can benefit from it, and sometimes we like to deny the true ones since we find it unpleasant , feel jealous, or we are afriad of the results.

If person A says sth to me, I can understand his intention myself,( emmm, not sure ofcourse! :lol: :lol: :lol: ) Let others say what they want. It doesn't affect my sense. I myself should be honest, honest, honest, really honest, and hope ohers believe me and it sure helps me recognize other's honesty too.

By the way, I think we should we careful with our words and actions. I may really mean what I say but the salt should be sefficiant, we shouldn't cause misinterpretation.It's very important. We
always have to keep balance and be careful.

Sth else, I think even those who we suppose are pretending to be open minded, really believe theyare open minded, they just don't know they aren't! {-: isn't it? Oh every thing is relative, there is no any absolute thing.

Dear Behnam, thanks for your very interesting recent posts. As always I enoyed them. And do agree with you on your opinions. You always mean what you say. You are always yourself; an opinionated man who knows what he says and assertively and firmly says so that it always makes him attractive.

All the best,
Elham
