be completely abolished. It is amazing that religious leaders would go
to such length to stop one war or another but would not say a word and
would not encourage rallies to stop this inhuman practise by secret

May God bring unbiased justice and truth back to this world, may God
free our minds and give us the ability to see beyond the boundaries of
worldly illusions, may God give us the ability to undo all those inhuman
pratices that can be used to destroy moral values. May God unite all the
Muslims and give them the ability to pray.

Assalam u?Alekum all :)
(min-late 1991, in Pakistan) Now insha?Allah for
few weeks we will discuss what happened to me in childhood. I had no
father it was great to grow up in the middle of people who only cared
about what they wanted or talk about me, even when they had seen my
character and intelligence, so when I started growing up, by the time I
reached level 9 at school, I was the only one who did not understand,
talk and do rude things, mostly students are me used to do all this but
I was not aware of the issue.

Some people have the idea that my brain is back now, no you can?t
recreate God?s gifts like the way they were before, especially brain.
When I was in level 3 I used to make images of planes, cars, helicopters
and ships that I had never seen, they were my ideas, but today?s Apache
and Stealth bomber look just like the two of them, though I can?t really
imagine things like that anymore, but I guess this is God?s will so I
just want to thank him for that.

So in level 9, I started feeling a lot of pain in my rude part and legs,
my mom took me to the doctor. They told me that I will have to get marry
to a J
