It has been narrated that Uqbah ibn Abi’s Sahba’ said:

When ibn Muljam struck Hazrat Ali (RA), al-Hasan went in to see him, weeping. Hazrat Ali told him, ‘My son, memorise from me four and four.’ He said, "What are they, father?" He said, ‘Intelligence...

...is wealthiest of riches, the greatest poverty is folly, the loneliest solitude is conceit, and the noblest of noble qualities is good character’. al-Hasan said, ‘and the other four?’ He said, ‘Beware of keeping the company of a fool, for he wants to benefit you and...
...he harms you; beware of befriending a liar, for he will make the remote seem near to you and the near seem remote; beware of befriending a mean person for he will sit inactively however much you are in need of him; and beware of befriending an immoral person..
for he will sell you for a trifling sum."

A petition to the Supreme Court of Israel was filed to force intelligence agencies to transfer historical documents to State archives after fifty years as per the law. But the secrecy provisions were extended from 50 to 70 years longer than country's...
..history at that time. In Israel, military censor requires the media to add words “according to foreign publications” whenever it mentions secret actions attributed to Israeli intelligence, primarily targeted assassinations even if the sources are from the intelligence.
‘Mossad’ is a unit of prime minister’s office. Under national law, reporting on any of its activities is subject to censorship.

“I’ve reached the conclusion that media is an insatiable monster so there’s no point in maintaining relationship with it.” Meir Dagan, Chief of Mossad

The killing of Osama bin Ladin has been made the Pakistani Achilles' heel despite of the fact that it was the effective intelligence sharing of ISI with CIA which led to the whereabouts of bin Laden.

I'm sharing few important facts in this thread which we must keep in mind:
1. ISI had been sharing information with CIA about the target compound of OBL since 2009. ISI shared the data of surveillance of mobile numbers of two Kuwaiti brothers who were couriers between the Al Qaeda leadership. The brothers identified were Abu Ahmed Al-Kuwaiti and Tariq.
2. In Feb 2011, when ISI captured Umer Patek alias Jaffer Alawi aka Hisyamein Alazein (of Kuwaiti origin), they requested satellite surveillance by the CIA of the house on “Pathan House” in Bilal town as they were tracking the movement of Abu Ahmed but CIA didn't share as they...

When Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) entered Makkah with his ten thousand followers on 18th Ramadan 8 hijrah, the Qureish which had so cruelly ill-treated him was completely at his mercy. But in the hour of triumph every evil suffered was forgotten, every injury inflicted was forgiven...
The army of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) under his command entered Makkah — city of their bitterest enemies peaceably; no house was robbed, no woman was insulted.

It's been truly said that “Through all the annals of conquest, there has been no triumphant entry like unto this one”
Allah says in the Glorious Qur'an!

وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ اِلَّا رَحۡمَةً لِّـلۡعٰلَمِيۡنَ (الأنبياء :١٠٧)
And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.

”دھیئے چھٹی ہندی نہیں مزدوراں دی“

سنیا اے اج چھٹی اے مزدوراں دی
آکھن لگی پئیو نوں دھی منظوراں دی
ابا جی اج چھٹی اسیں مناواں گے
اپنے سارے دکھ تے درد بھلاواں گے
ٹالھی تھلے اپنی منجھی ڈھاواں گے
کٹھے رج دوپہر نوں روٹی کھاواں گے

اپنے ہتھیں چاء دا کپ پلاواں گی
ہئولی ہئولی پکھی جھول سلاواں گی
لوڈھے ویلے سوں کے جد اٹھ جاوو گے
دھیئے دھیئے کہہ کول بلاوو گے
ابا جی میں نسی نسی آواں گی
چجر وچوں پانی نال لیاواں گی
اباجی! او میرے سوہنے ابا جی!
سن کے گلاں کہندا ابا سن کڑیئے
ایویں اینے خواب خیال نہ بن کڑیئے
کم تے جا کے پیسے چار کماواں گا
آندا ہویا راشن نال لیاواں گا
ساڈے ویہڑے دکھ دی تیز ہنیری اے
پیسے پیسے دی اج لوڑ ودھیری اے
دھیئے کل نوں ڈولی تینوں پانا اے
تھوڑا تھوڑا کر کے داج بنانا اے

The tyrannical regime of Afghan communists finds few parallels in the annals of history. Two million Afghans died. 78% of the training institutions were destroyed. Hundreds of students were abducted and summarily executed.

In this thread, I'm sharing some important facts.
The Communist era in Afghanistan began on 27 April 1978 when President Daud and his 18 family members were massacred in a bloody coup d'etat by the militants of Afghan Communist Party (PDPA) who subsequently dignified it with the title ‘The Great Saur [April] Revolution’.
Kabul University is one of the oldest institutions in Afghanistan. In 1977, 750 faculty members were working. After the coup, 36 were executed and 276 were emigrated. Hundreds of students were abducted and summarily executed. Number of students reduced from 14000 to 6000 in 1984.

Hazrat Ali wrote a letter to one of his governors which eloquently explains the status and role of judiciary in Islam:

“Select as your chief judge one from the people who by far is the best among them; one who is not obsessed with domestic worries; one who cannot be...
intimidated; one who does not err too often; one who does not turn back from the right path once he finds it; one who is not self-centred or avaricious; one who will not decide before knowing the full facts; one who will weigh with care every attendant doubt and pronounce a...
clear verdict after taking everything into full consideration; one who will not grow restive over the arguments of advocates; one who will examine with patience every new disclosure of facts; one who will be strictly impartial in his decision; one whom flattery cannot mislead;
