Windows Vista Registry Cleanup

The Registry is essentially a huge database of thousands of settings for Windows itself and most of your software. When you install or even use a program, it makes changes to the Registry, but when you uninstall something it often leaves junk behind, filling the Registry with garbage.
Luckily, there are a bunch of good Registry cleaners out there that will seek and let you destroy useless stuff.

We recommend the following Vista-compatible system utilities, available at

  • Glary Utilities
  • RogueRemover 1.16
  • ToniArts EasyCleaner

Declaration of World Muslim League about Ahmadiyyat

World Muslim League held its annual conference at Makkah Al-Mukaramma Saudi Arabia from 14th to 18th of Rabiul Awwal 1394 H (April 1974) in which 140 delegations of Muslim countries and organizations from all over the world participated. Here are the declaration :

Qadianism or Ahmadiyyat: It is a subversive movement against Islam and the Muslim world, which falsely and decietfully claims to be an Islamic sect; who under the guise of Islam and for the sake of mundane interests contrives and plans to damage the very foundations of Islam. Its eminent deviations from the basic Islamic principles are as follows:

1. Its founder claimed that he was a Prophet.
2. They deliberately distort the meanings of the verses of the Holy Quran.
3. They decalred that Jehad has been obolished.

Slaughtering animal in Islam

Question :

As-salamu `alaykum.

My question concerns halal meat.
As far as I know (please correct me as my knowledge on the subject is limitedl), the Qur'an does not describe exactly how an animal must be slaughtered and what words, if any, should be said when it is done. So how did the rules come about?

Also, is it acceptable to eat meat from the Children of the Book and say bismillah before eating if I have reasonable grounds to think that the animal was alive when killed (even if stunned) and was killed with a sharp blade without suffering?
Please answer in brief.

Answer (Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah):

Wa `alaykum as-salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
