    إعلاء راية الدين يستلزم ان نرفع راية الدين أولا، لكن كيف يتم ذلك وكل من يرفع راية الدين يُتهم بأنه يتاجر بالدين؟ حتى انني اظن في نفسي انه لو كان سيد الخلق صلي الله عليه وسلم بيننا الان لاتهموه بأنه يتاجر بالدين لو قرأ قول الله تعالى (إن الله اشترى من المؤمنين أنفسهم وأموالهم بأن…

  • Android phones with keyboard

    The first Android phone the G1 had a physical keyboard, I had one, and it was amazing. Keyboards are easier to write on than touch screens and faster too.

  • My alternative view on the Egyptian Inar Tablet.

    Politics aside the amount of free publicity the first Egyptian Inar tablet got due to the political controversy around it was phenomenal.
