Moving Back

Got this link from a friend. I don't know who is Masud Alam... but quite an article!

Masud Alam of the BBC's Urdu service moving back

Nice quote:
I'm not sure what worries a returning long-time
expatriate more: not finding anything familiar or
finding things exactly as they'd been!

A scarier version of the quote would read like this:
when you find the good qualities of a Muslim land are all gone/faded, but the bad
qualities of corruption and old-mentality "exacly as they'd been!"

Indeed, as Muslims we should set our goals on moving back to our real homeland --Garden of Eden!

Interesting Fact About Loaning Women

WHARTON LEADERSHIP DIGEST: Why does microcredit focus primarily on women?

ISKENDERIAN (CEO of Women’s World Banking): Microfinance has traditionally focused on the underserved and the un-banked – low-income women are that in spades, unfortunately. They also tend to be very, very good credit; they have extraordinary retainment records. Research also shows that when you make a dollar of loan funding available to a woman entrepreneur who is building her business, the multiplier effect on the community as a whole is far greater than a similar dollar of loan to a man. She turns any profits first back into her children’s education, secondly into healthcare for the community, and thirdly into housing. Loaning money to these women just makes good sense, not only from a business and retainment standpoint, but from a community standpoint.
