About Khaled A.


  1. this is off subject_______
    i found a great way to jailbreak mobilys iphone, since they come pre-loaded with 3.1. its hard to hack.
    but theres an app called blackra1n, and hacks it really easly! google for more.

  2. I updated the system and It crashed. A msg said “invalid node structure” what should i do?
    My machine is MACbook pro 17″ early 2009. I upgraded from Leopard to snow leopard on september.
    please I need ur advice

  3. I highly recommand to take it to Apple approved repair center. Goto the one on top of iSystem apple store in Swefeyah.

    • Thanks zsafwan
      I don’t trust people working in MAC in Amman.
      They don’t have this experience. In addition the cost is much over than even Saudia!
      so if there is a way I can do using softwares or repairing by CDs will be appreciated.

    Dear SaudiMaq brothers


    I use Arabic to Arabic Al’qamoos .pkg ,Arabic .pkg (basic Arabic  dictionary) and The Holy Musaff these are free downloads from Thirdparty downloads Home and learning on Apple all three are for leopard 10.5 OSX However I do not know if it is an approved Holy Al Qur ‘aan by Scholars I would like to know this .
     The Alqamoos is also an iPhone App it is good but does not interact with Apples English Dictionary
    In Japan they have a fantastic Japanese free dictionary part of the installation why they do not have all language plug -ins like this ?The Arabic plug in is just a single word and I would like a comprehensive detailed explanaition in Arabic and English or Finnish and some example usages like the Japanese one and Alqamoos does not load into 10.6 Snow Leopard InshAllah If I ever get good enough I would like to help to make a multi dictionary from/ to Arabic plug -in for Maq can we get together and lobby for an Arabic and other language dictionary plug -in for Maq 
    This will Insha Allah enable learners of Arabic and Al Qur ‘aan to learn Arabic from learning the Musaff  It is a noble way to learn Arabic Language History and there are useful every day words in use imagine to highlight a word from the Al Qur’aan and get the meaning in English too because although we should learn Arabic we have to be sure to double verify the word and Aya so as not to be misled about the meaning context and pronunciation of the words and clarity of message.

    There are many Apps for iPhone of Islamic content Al hamdu lillah and on line material but I am not on line because 
    I am mobile and take my Apple with me outside to a cafe and get a drink for a fraction of the cost of keeping my room warm
    I hope someone can guide me to a free download Alqamoos oh I need a Grammar dictionary too
