In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful. All praises are due to Allah; we praise Him; we seek His help; we seek His forgiveness; and we seek His guidance. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil in our souls and the wickedness of our deeds. For whomever Allah guides, there is none to lead him astray. And for whomever He allows to go astray, there is none to guide him. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, for whom there is no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and last and final Messenger.
The work that I present here for your consumption is more than a book; a collection of words meant to deliver glad tidings, to educate, and to perhaps warn. It is a work driven by what is intended to be a sound and powerful message.
This message invites readers to think freely and broaden their minds; to contemplate and seek their own truth. This passage advises people, furthermore, never to blindly follow any given religion without first reflecting upon the faith in question and reasoning its true meaning.
This passage encourages readers to think about, reflect upon, and understand their own collection of spiritual beliefs. Beyond all manner of faith and feeling, one must use their intellect to discover the truth behind any and all faiths.
This passage is intended to draw and empower the sincere seeker of truth; the one that questions, reflects and ponders his or her life’s purpose and questions his/her future and direction.
Islam, for example, is one faith that is misunderstood and misrepresented by many. Before one forms an opinion of Islam, one should question the thoroughness and truthfulness of his or her existing knowledge of this controversial religion.
Has this knowledge been drawn from and formed through third party sources that are non-Muslim in origin? Has this information been obtained through the popular media? In fairness to the religion and to one’s own self, one’s personal opinion of...

The PRESENT TENSE uses the verb's base form (write, work), or, for third-person singular subjects, the base form plus an -s ending (he writes, she works).
The PRESENT TENSE indicates that an action is present, now, relative to the speaker or writer. Generally, it is used to describe actions that are factual or habitual -- things that occur in the present but that are not necessarily happening right now: "It rains a lot in Portland" is a kind of timeless statement. Compare that to the present progressive -- "It is raining in Portland" -- which means that something is, in fact, going on right now. "I use my bike to get around town." is in the present, but I'm not actually on my bike right now. An instantaneous sense of the present can be conveyed with either the simple present or the progressive: "Watch him now: he holds [is holding] down the control key at the same time that he presses [is pressing] the letter d."
The present tense is used to describe events that are scheduled (by nature or by people): "High tide is at 3:15 p.m. The Super Bowl starts at 6:15 p.m."
The present tense can be used to suggest the past with what is sometimes called the fictional (or historic) present: "We were watching the back door when, all of a sudden, in walks Dierdre." With verbs of communicating, the present tense can also suggest a past action: "Dierdre tells me that she took her brother to the dentist." Most oddly, the present tense can convey a sense of the future, especially with verbs such as arrive, come, and leave that suggest a kind of plan or schedule: "The train from Boston arrives this afternoon at two o'clock."

A cool commercial by Tide
his Super Bowl commercial shows a man job interviewing with a stain beside his tie on his white shirt. Every time he speaks, the stain talks loudly over him, so the interviewer is distracted. Commercial ends featuring the Tide-to-Go pen, to remove stains before they out talk you. Voice over says, Get famous at mytalkingstain****
Largest Procter & Gamble brand in North America Kicks Off Multifaceted Campaign During Super Bowl XLII
Today, Tide aired an advertisement for the #1 instant stain remover, Tide to Go, during Super Bowl XLII, marking the detergent category leader's first foray into the Super Bowl and the first time for a Procter & Gamble brand since 2004. Tide to Go's 30-second spot, created by Saatchi & Saatchi of New York, provided a humorous look at the consequences of embarrassing stains, with a "talking stain" overshadowing a job candidate's interview. It was the national debut for the spot which received widespread industry recognition including a 2007 Cannes Silver Lion award. Tide to Go's Super Bowl spot served as the launching pad for a new digital campaign and microsite — www.mytalkingstain**** — where consumers are encouraged to create their own 'spoofs' of the Talking Stain spot. The winning consumer ad will air on Primetime television later this year.
