I just wanted to pay tribute to him and talk about the situation." When asked if it was a conscious thing to give an eastern flavor to the song, Sheik says "Definitely... I know that he was, like, a big fan of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and he was listening to a lot of that kind of music. There's also just a really mournful quality to that kind of string playing." Sheik says, "I wanted to send him off and say a few things about how much his music moved me and other people.
Queria perdoar-lhe o Rei benino, Movido das palavras que o magoam; Mas o pertinaz povo, e seu destino (Que desta sorte o quis) lhe não perdoam. Arrancam das espadas de aço fino Os que por bom tal feito ali apregoam. Contra uma dama, ó peitos carniceiros, Feros vos amostrais, e cavaleiros?luís de camões

When I think of the people who have been there, and the people I grew up admiring - the likes of Muhammad ali, Rocky Marciano, Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard... it's just incredible that I'm in the same sort of club.Barry McGuigan
Learn from ali how to fight without your ego participating. God's lion did nothing that didn't originate from his deep center.jalal al-din muhammad rumi
Kings of the Nizam dynasty were said to be among the richest men in the world. They indulged their fantasies on an extraordinary extent. For instance, the ninth Nizam of Hyderabad, Mahbub ali, Asif Jha VI (1869-1911) is reputed to have never repeatedly worn a dress. It is said that his wardrobe filled an entire wing of the palace and stood two storeys high.Ababu Minda Yimene
If ali says a mosquito can pull a plow, don't ask how. Hitch him up.
Could I forget that the event [Mehmet ali A?ca’s assassination attempt] in Saint Peter's Square took place on the day and at the hour when the first appearance of the Mother of Christ to the poor little peasants has been remembered for over sixty years at Fatima in Portugal? For, in everything that happened to me on that very day, I felt that extraordinary motherly protection and care, which turned out to be stronger than the deadly bullet.
"On the matter of political relations with Iran, the sheikh was absolutely clear. Hizbollah regards the Iranian supreme leader, in this case Ayatollah ali Khamenei, as its ultimate authority; all major political decisions regarding Hizbollah are referred to – when not actually taken in – Iran. He gave the example of the decision taken in 1992 to enter Lebanese national politics: Hizbollah set up a commission, which prepared a report, with various options; this report was sent to Iran; it was Ayatollah Khamenei himself who took the final decision, in favour of participation."
ali: 6 As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe. Pickthall: 6 As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not.
ali: 24 But if ye cannot- and of a surety ye cannot- then fear the Fire whose fuel is men and stones,- which is prepared for those who reject Faith.

ali: 85 If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good). Pickthall: 85 And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter.
It was in 1769 that Hyderabad got preeminence after Nizam ali Khan Asaf Jah-II, the second ruler of the dynasty, made it the capital of his kingdom instead of Aurangabad. By then, two bloody battles had been fought for Hyderabad.
A lifestyle typical of many rulers of that era who squandered away their empires to the British -- in the manner of the famous scene from Ray 's film that depicts Wajid ali Shah leisurely playing chess as the British soldiers marched in. But yet these much-maligned Nawabs were responsible for nurturing Lucknow's culture of poetry , dance , music and art and inventing the famous Lucknowi traditions.
The importance of the festival in the cultural psyche of the people of the State could be gauged by the fact that both Haidar ali and Tipu Sultan allowed its continuance, even during the Interregnum period when they usurped Mysore from the Wodeyars. The titular Wodeyar was permitted to carry out the rituals in a low-key fashion.Vikram Sampath
Lucknow was a bystander of those last proud days of Muslim rule in India, before it and the rest of Oudh , was summarily annexed by the British . The fall of Wajid ali Shah, the last Nawab of Oudh and the siege of Lucknow during the 1857 Mutiny have given Lucknow special mention in all history books . The Nawabs of Lucknow are a footnote in Indian history for their degenerate, idle and lavish lifestyle .
