lol, I’m sorry if I’m offending anyone, but this is funny

Miss USA, Rima Fakih doesn’t have a problem posing for cameras topless. Her only condition is that she gets photographed from the back only. According to her, she doesn’t allow pictures from the front (and I’m quoting her here):

“I’m Arab, I’m Muslim, and I didn’t want to disappoint many people.”

As an Arab and a Muslim my self, I can appreciate this statement. At least she’s speaking her mind. Besides, if she’s living in the States, then this might be a good way to blend in smoothly. Kudus for her for at least worrying about us.

Ramadan TV shows & mosalsalat Apple application just got cheaper

I had posted earlier about this cool Mosalsalat Ramadan application in Apple’s App Store, which was selling for $1.99.

I was checking the app store again this morning, when I noticed that the price came down to $.99. I guess they reduced the price after Ramadan started, lucky us.

Update on Kafo ya Kuwait

This is an update for my Kafo Ya Kuwait and Proud to be Kuwaiti posts.

There you have it, official from Kuwait Gazette, the Council of Ministers was the one whom receded and cancelled Khalid Al-Moraikhi’s Kuwaiti citizenship. No more of his blabbering like a lying loony all over Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

Ghazi Al-Qusaibi in Kuwait’s heart الكويت لن تنسى غازي القصيبي

As most of you know by know, Dr. Ghazi Al-Qusaibi, has died yesterday morning. He was a Saudi politician, academic, ambassador, and minister. He also was a poet, an author, and a writer. More than he was one of Kuwait’s heros.

He was one of the first Arab writers to use his writing talents in the defence of Kuwait against the Iraqi Invasion in 1990. There isn’t a Kuwaiti that doesn’t know his famous patriotic Poem “أقسمت يا كويت”. It’s a very strong poem that came out during the 1st days of the invasion, at the most needed time. You can watch Al-Qusaibi recite it in the above video, that was taking in his 1st visit back to Kuwait after its liberation in 1991.

It makes me feel proud that we in Kuwait have not forgotten him, local Kuwaiti papers placed the news of his death and how big his loss is on their front page: Al-Jareeda, Al-Qabas, Al-Watan, and Al-Rai. Dr Al-Qusaibi did deserve to be on page one.

Another important community that remembered Al-Qusaibi, and paid him the respect he deserves, is the Kuwaiti blogging community. Some of the most highly followed bloggers wrote great things about the deceased: Frankom, Bait El-Grain, Bint Al-Shamiya, and ilsul6ana.

Kuwait is sad about the death of Dr. Ghazi, and he will always have a special place in our hearts.

اللهم ارحم غازي القصيبي

Oops, a big correction is due

In my last post, I wrote about how KFH‘s Ramadan Emsakiya, featured in Al-Qabas newspaper everyday, is misleading because it didn’t have the Emsak time. Well guess what? I’ve been looking at the wrong table this whole time. It turns out that KFH does actually offer an Emsakiya table right on the front page; whereas the prayer times are featured separately on the last page. I guess I got confused because I automatically assumed the Emsakiya and prayer times would be together in a single table. It’s all that fasting and starving getting to my head. Sorry Al-Qabas and KFH.

The Emsakiya for the the whole of Ramadan, courtesy of Gulf Bank,  can be found here.

What does this mean? when do we start fasting?

Ever since Ramadan started, Al-Qabas‘s been using this Ramadan Emsakiya from Kuwait Finance House. Looking at this everyday, on page 1, is very misleading and confusing. Exactly what time should be start our fast? If it is Fajer Prayer time, then since when have we started using that as our Emsak time? I don’t know about you guys, but I still prefer traditional Emsak times.
