Muhammad, Jesus and Moses (peace be upon all of them) are three men who preached a common message. “WORSHIP ONE TRUE ALLAH ” !




Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful.

The Noble Qur’an ~ Surat An-Nisa’ [4:36]

Say, “We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord.

#AceFriendsNews – Beach with no Name.


Between the Gayunda Wreck and Scotts Point you will find this pretty little beach. If you look on google maps nothing much shows up, but here you will find a car park, BBQs, green grassy parklands, wooded areas and the Gayunda arboretum

I walk Chi around this area most days. It’s my favourite place on the Redcliffe Peninsula, Queensland, Australia. I can spend hours taking pictures down here with so many interesting subjects to capture. How many photographs can I take of the same set of stairs? I haven’t tired yet.

Most weekdays we have the place to ourselves. The beach doesn’t appear to have a name so I call it My Beach.
