"Allah. there is no God but He! To Him belong the most Beautiful Names".(Qur'an 20:8) -- al-Muqeet (The Controller of Things ) is a name of Allah

Khuda bakshe bahut si khoobiyan thi marne wale mein
[Daag Dehalvi ] Ameen, Thumma Ameen.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajiun. Allahumma ajirni fi musibati, wa akhlif li khayran minha

To Allah we belong, and to Him will we return – O Allah, reward me for my affliction and replace it for me with that which is better.
Umm Salamah keeps repeating this dear du’a, with faith as firm as a fist. She doesn’t deny her condition for she does ask “who could be a better husband than Abu Salamah?” continue reading the meaning of this dua
May Allah grant him Jannatul Firdous and give his family and friends sabr. InshAllah Aameen. A great loss to all who knew him; We cannot forget his kind and nice behavior with everyone, with no exceptions he was a very good Muslim.
Massalam, Dua jo and dua go

    Andhra seeks help for students stuck in US
    Hyderabad, Jan 28 (IANS) With many students from Andhra Pradesh facing the possibility of being deported from the United States following the closure of Tri-Valley University, the state government Friday urged the Indian government to take up the issue with the US authorities.

    Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy has requested the ministry of external affairs to pursue the matter with the US government for giving all possible assistance to the students affected by the closure of the SanFrancisco-based university.

    Reddy also wrote a letter to External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna to render all possible assistance through the diplomatic missions in Washington and San Francisco in issuing visas to the affected students, who approach them.

    The closure of the university has reportedly affected 1,600 Indian students and 500 are from Andhra Pradesh.

  • Are Indian Students Enrolled At Tri-Valley University (TVU) Really Innocent? Shiksha on 3 Feb 2011

    Defense of Indian Students

    Some of the Hyderabad students, who got their I-20 forms from TVU, allege that both the Hyderabad US Consulate and the Chennai US Consulate failed to detect the fraud and processed their F-1 visa forms, giving them no reason to doubt the university.

    Others, who have moved from other universities to TVU, say that TVU allowed them to work for 20 to 40 hours per week from Day 1 as Curricular Practical Training, and they thought it was legal.

    The Indian student community also says that since the Tri-Valley University has been recognized and accredited for accepting foreign students, Indian students should not be blamed for seeking admission there.

    IAEC Consultancy, which has been named as the Tri-valley's representatives for South Asia region in the varsity's website, denies any links with the university and says that it has not sent even a single student to the institution.

    What Tri-Valley University Has To Say
    Founder and President of the Tri-Valley University, Ms Susan Su, was born in China. Most of the faculty too belongs to Chinese origin. They remain defiant in the face of all the charges and maintain that TVU has not broken any law. Su blames her two staff members of Indian origin for the blatant misuse of I20 forms.
    Su insists that Tri-Valley University's growth pace has been so fast that they might have slipped on some protocol issues.

    The staff members that have been fired by TVU for the fraud are: Anji Reddy - a student assistant who worked in TVU administrative office, and another TVU student called Ram Krista Karra, who also has a consultant company. The students, duped by these two individuals, paid their tuition fee in the personal account of Ram Krista Karra to get their student I-20 forms and CPT approvals.
