The Beacon of Knowledge and Light | An Exhibition

Yesterday I got the chance to visit The Beacon of Knowledge and Light put together by HBKU at QFIS.

The Beacon of Knowledge and Light is an exhibition that focuses on the many aspects of Islam, and the Qur’an. From botany to astronomy, and architecture, there is quite a lot you can discover at this exhibition. The event also runs today from 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm. It’s a great place to take the kids to as well andĀ is quite informative for the adults as well.

Some of the activities that are part of the event includes

Live Calligraphy Session

In addition to the calligraphy exhibit, there is also a live calligraphy session going on where you can get your names written in some of the beautiful Arabic fonts. You can also get a hands-on experience yourself if you’d like.

Qur’an based Botanical Garden

These exhibits are a mix of real plants, and photo exhibits – quite informative as well

3 D presentation of the Haramain – ( The Holy Mosques in Makkah, and Madinah)

This is like a virtual presentation where you get to see the Haramain inside what looks like a black structure. Can’t really describe its shape. There are also 3 D photo exhibits put together by a lady and her brother who came in from Saudi

Smoothie Making Demo

There is a food court area where you can buy in little snacks if you are hungry, and also there is a live smoothie making demo session there.

Fascination Astronomy

A couple of powerful telescopes have been brought from wherein you can see the stars, and the moon through it. The waiting lines for this can get massive.

All-in-all it is a fun and informative exhibition – one which is mainly targeted for kid, and young adults. However I am sure even adults would enjoy going to this one. Just a reminder this is an open exhibition for Muslims, and Non Muslims alike. If you haven’t been there, I’d recommend you paying a visit. The building architecture is very impressive, and an art in itself.

Do you love patterns too?
This pic is exactly as I shot off the wall at the newly opened @timerakohotel at Al Wakrah.
So fascinated to see new places coming up and the rapid changes this country has been going through and growing through

A T T I T U D EBe humble enough to admit you are not perfect but determined enough to strive to be.
More often than not you can find people who deem themselves perfect or priveleged and make you feel like your hardwork and your skills are nothing( I have been made to feel like this several times). Dont let that get to you. Your talent, knowledge and skill that you have with you are more than money can ever buy. The people you need to admire and can most definitely learn a lot from are the humble and patient ones. . .

One of the most scenic spots we went to in Macedonia and one I would love to go back again to.
The water was so chilly, the colors around so beautiful. What I love about nature is that it does not judge. It shows the same beauty to everyone around. Everyone gets the same service regardless of who they are.
Come rain or wind, it passes through everywhere with no exception. Isn't nature such a wonderful teacher?
Only if we took lessons from it! Whats the favorite lesson you have learnt from nature?

No matter how narrow minded we think a person can be, they can still see beauty if they really want to look for it. Beauty and Goodness is there in everyone just like faults. Why is it so easy to point out faults and not the good?
Can you go to sleep with a clean conscience having pointed out someone's fault? Or is the happiness through saying the right words that makes your day happy?
If so, before you write from behind the screen, before anger, jealousy or negative feelings take over your words, try and pause and choose the good words šŸ’Ÿ .

I sat down with the ENT specialist Dr. Agish Mathew at Aster Hospital and one of the things I learnt was more on the problem of snoring in sleep. More than 75% of people who snore haveĀ obstructive sleep apneaĀ (when breathing is disrupted duringĀ sleepĀ for short periods), which increases the risk of developingĀ heart disease.šŸ˜²šŸ˜²
At Aster Hospital they can provide the service of observing you and analysing your sleep patterns . More often than not a person who snores struggles to get enough oxygen into the brain while asleep and the person wakes up tired because the body works so hard while asleepšŸ˜Œ to get enough oxygen into the brain.
For this reason, if anyone around you has a snoring problem, dont take it lightly.
The Aster Hospital in Qatar offers the service of studying sleeping disorders overnight and making sure to diagnose the cause of it and how to rectify it.
Did you know about this before?
Share it with everyone you know!

It almost felt like I wanted to take a fluffy piece of cloud and keep it for myself
