How To Get Better Estimates From Your Team These steps will help you get great estimates from your team every time. Identify the Tasks to Estimate
Take a look at your project task list and identify which tasks need estimates. Strip out all the routine tasks like project meetings or workshops (you can put them on the schedule for a particular day). Anything else will need someone to work out the time it will take to complete the task. Identify the Team Experts
The resources allocated to complete the task may not be the right people to do the estimate. You may also want to involve their managers or other subject matter experts. You could also bring in someone who did the task on a similar project – they aren't allocated to your project but they'll have a great insight into how long it takes to do the work. Do this for every task so you know who to work with for your estimates. Group tasks together so you can hold estimating meetings with the right people and focus on their sections …

Attributes of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations, and Peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad, the faithful and the honest.
Oh, Allah, we know nothing but what You teach us. You are the All- Knower, the Wise. Oh Allah, teach us what is good for us, and benefit us from what You taught us, and increase our knowledge. Show us the righteous things as righteous and help us to do them, and show us the bad things as bad and help us to keep away from them.
 O Allah our Lord, lead us out from the depths of darkness and illusion, unto the lights of erudition and knowledge, and from the muddy shallows of lusts unto the heavens of Your Vicinity.

Dear brothers, this is the first part of the introduction to our new series: “Ways of access and signs of acceptance”, inspired by Allah’s Words: "I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me." [Al Kahf, 110] It is as if in this ayah Allah the Almighty were summarizing Revelation to us. "I am on…
Allah's statement: ًًَََََِ"He may multiply it to him many times", is similar to His statement:
"The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of
corn); it grows seven (7) ears, and each ear has a hundred (100) grains. Allah gives manifold increase to
whom He wills." (Glorious Quran 2:261).

Three (3) Steps to Create a Resource PlanResource Plan identifies the physical resources required to complete a project. It lists each of the resource types (such as labour, equipment and materials) and how many of each you need. If you would like to define a comprehensive Resource Plan for your project, take the following three steps. First, identify the different types of resources needed to complete the project. You then need to quantify the amount of each type of resource required. And finally, you need to schedule the consumption of each resource within the project. Let's describe each step in a little more detail. Step 1: List the resource required You should start by listing the resources required to complete the project. Labor. Identify all the roles involved in performing the project, including all full-time, part-time and contracting roles. Equipment. Identify all of the equipment involved in performing the project. For instance, this may include office equipment (e.g. PCs,…

“Tuhanmu yang melayarkan kapal di lautan untukmu, agar kamu mencari sebahagian daripada kurnia-Nya. Sesungguhnya Dia Maha Penyayang terhadapmu. Dan apabila kamu ditimpa bahaya di lautan, nescaya hilanglah siapa yang kamu seru, kecuali Dia, maka tatkala Dia menyelamatkan kamu ke daratan, kamu berpaling. Dan manusia selalu tidak bersyukur. Maka apakah kamu merasa aman (daripada hukuman Tuhan) yang menjungkirbalikkan sebahagian daripada daratan bersama kamu atau Dia meniupkan (angin keras yang membawa) batu-batu kecil? Dan kamu tidak akan mendapat seorang pelindung pun bagi kamu, atau apakah kamu merasa aman dengan dikembalikan kamu ke laut sekali lagi, lalu Dia meniupkan atas kamu angin taufan dan ditenggelamkannya kamu disebabkan kekafiranmu. Dan kamu tidak akan mendapat seorang penolong pun dalam hal ini terhadap (seksaan) Kami. Dan sesungguhnya telah Kami muliakan anak Adam, Kami angkut mereka di daratan dan di lautan. Kami beri mereka rezeki daripada yang baik-baik dan Kami lebihkan …

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Allah! There is no God but He,
the Living, the Self-subsisting, the Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him, nor sleep.
All things in heaven and earth are His.
Who could intercede in His presence without His permission?
He knows what appears in front of and behind His creatures.
Nor can they encompass any kn…

17.Bersabarlah (wahai Muhammad) terhadap apa sahaja yang mereka katakan dan ingatlah akan hamba Kami Nabi Daud, yang mempunyai kekuatan (dalam pegangan agamanya); sesungguhnya dia adalah sentiasa rujuk kembali (kepada Kami dengan bersabar mematuhi perintah Kami).  18.Sesungguhnya Kami telah mudahkan gunung-ganang turut bertasbih memuji Kami bersama-sama dengannya; pada waktu petang dan ketika terbit matahari.  19. Dan (Kami mudahkan juga) unggas turut berhimpun (untuk bertasbih memuji Kami bersama-sama dengannya); tiap-tiap satunya mengulangi tasbih masing-masing menurutnya.  20.Dan Kami kuatkan kerajaannya, serta Kami kurniakan kepadanya hikmah kebijaksanaan dan kepetahan berkata-kata (dalam menjalankan hukum dan menjatuhkan hukuman)
