First 5G-capable iPhone to hit stores in 2020

© Provided by Khaleej Times First 5G-capable iPhone to hit stores in 2020

The first 5G iPhone is likely to use an Intel modem, the 8161, and it could hit stores in 2020, according to a report on Fast Company.

Muharram 2018

The Embassy of India, Kuwait will be closed on Thursday, 20th September, 2018 on account of Muharram 2018. Earlier it was announced that the holiday will be on Friday. However the embassy informed that Thursday will be the holiday.

Muḥarram (Arabic: مُحَرَّم‎ muḥarram) is the first month of the Islamic calendar. It is one of the four sacred months of the year.[1] It is held to be the second holiest month, after Ramadan . Since the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, Muharram moves from year to year when compared with the Gregorian calendar.

The tenth day of Muharram is known as the Day of Ashura, part of the Mourning of Muharram for Shia Muslims and a day of fasting for Sunni Muslims. The practice of fasting during Ashura stems from the hadith[2] that Musa (Moses) and his people obtained a victory over the Egyptian Pharaoh on the 10th day of Muharram; accordingly Muhammad asked Muslims to fast on this day and on the day prior, the …
