Today less people read than they used to in the past and even less people read books now than in the past. However I stand on the notion that we should read real books (not e-books) more often for many reasons that I shall now elaborate.
First things first, reading a book increases intelligence. One form in which reading a book increases intelligence is crystallized intelligence. Crystallized intelligence is all factual knowledge that a person knows like vocabulary for example.

What lies ahead

What do you know about the grave? Do you only know that people go to the grave after death and it is a scary place because it is dark and no one is there? Here are the three most important information about the grave.

The grave is our second life which is called Al-Barzakh. Our first life is Dunya which is where we live in now, on earth. The life in the grave will be punishment for people who do evil and will be convenient for those who have acted rightly in their lives.

Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great was born in July 356BC in Macedonia now known as Greece. He became one of the best leaders of all times. Here are some reasons why he became a great leader.
Firstly his father took good care of him and his education. For example he learnt wisdom and philosophy so that helped him to think as a leader.

A shoulder to cry on

When I was 12 years old, I had a lot of friends. Looking back now, my best friend was someone I really never thought as a friend. She is Alaa. I met Alaa at Abedeen Academy. At first I thought she did not want to be my friend and she looked like she hated me too. But now we are best friends!! Alaa is a nice girl, she respects everyone, even the people she does not know. In 2017, I came to Abedeen and met Alaa.

Poverty

Poverty is the lack of certain amount of material possessions or money. Poverty is a multifaceted concept, it means it has a lot of different aspects or features. Poverty may have social, economic and environmental effects. The entire country should stop poverty for two reasons.
Firstly, poverty can destroy the environment. The reason how poverty does this is through the rich people who hire the poor to cut trees down illegally and pay the poor people less money than expected. For example, deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia. Trees and plants gives us oxygen by taking in carbon dioxide.

Are you a sceptic?

Fortnite is the best game currently in the world. People of all ages play fortnite. These are the reasons why Fortnite is the best game in the world.
Firstly, every 75 days there is a major update called season and every 4-5 days there are mini updates too. Updates are only for making the game exciting as there are always something new to look forward too. For example in updates Fortnite adds new stuff such as a new weapon or a vehicle.

Social media

In this modern era, where everyone is very much interested in social networking, social networking sites have become a norm. Although some parents might think there are no advantages of it, teenagers are actually getting benefits from social networking.
The first benefit of social networking for teenagers is that it can help to strengthen friendships. When teens have healthy friendships, they do not only accept who they are, but they also feel less isolated and more connected to the world around them.

The Life of Chris

Life was hard for Chris, but he did not give up on himself. He has always wanted to be a writer, however constant bullying from school and in his neighbourhood drove him to suicide at the age of 14. With God’s will, his best-friend was always there for him and helped brought him back. Still, with all of these events happening he did not care so after the suicide scenario he continued looking forward pursuing his interest in sports, that is football. This did not require hands, Chris thought to himself, so he did just that.

Who took my time?

Many months ago, I was stalking Vivy Yusof’s Instagram page and she posted videos of a talk she attended on her Instastory. It was pretty late. I had just put my daughter to bed, and because I did not want the sound of the video to wake her up, I watched the videos without its sound. Couldn’t be bothered to take my headphones downstairs either. Watched the video, read the caption to one of the videos, which immediately caught my attention.

Chicken Soup for the mind

It has been a while since I have had some time to catch a breather. The Eid-Ul Fitr break has come at just the right time. While I get ready to rejoice and celebrate, I cannot help but be reminded of the death by suicide of two very well known figures; one in fashion and design and the other in culinary. Yes, I am talking about the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, both of whom took their own lives out of depression. They are not the first.
