Dear Visitor, Wherever you are in the world, Welcome to Around The World forum.

Many people may be surprised that Muslims love Mary (peace be upon her), the mother of Jesus (peace be upon him). In the Quran, no woman is given more attention than Mary(peace be upon her).

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: 'None but a noble man treats women in an honorable manner, and none but an ignoble treats women disgracefully. ' (Sunan At-Tirmidhî)

We would like to tell you NOW, a few things about the purpose of our forum: Around The World is twofold. First, it is to promote understanding between people from around the world. Secondly, it is to educate people on Islam, it's beliefs and practices.

We aspire to promote a good online communication experience for our members. I hope that you find your stay here beneficial, as well as enjoyable, and inshaAllah we benefit from each

Australia: PM's back, best you look busy

The non-holiday holiday is officially over today, writes Annabel Crabb.

HE'S back.

After taking a brief festive break during which he completed his move to Canberra, learned to love cricket and developed a mild man-crush on Hugh Jackman, the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, flew back to the national capital last night in readiness for the first official working week of Kevin08.

At this level in public life, the distinction between holidays and work can be difficult to spot.

Thus, Mr Rudd's last day of holidays yesterday was spent not as an ordinary person might spend such a day (lying about morosely wondering if there is anything clean to wear to work), but as Kevin Rudd would spend it - flying to Brisbane for a bracing discussion of economic policy with the Treasury secretary, Ken Henry, and the Treasurer, Wayne Swan.

This is all part and parcel of what government press secretaries, with the manic perkiness of the already overworked, have described as a "working break".
