I thank Allaah for preserving the rainbows of our life! *a very happy smile*
Without them, the day would be so dull. So we love them for Allaah and Inshaa'Allaah, Allaah loves them too. And protects them from the rain, the storm and the thunder. And it goes to show that even amidst the rain and storm, a little sunshine can bring out the best colours of the rainbow!

The word "queue" is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed.

Beetles taste like apples, wasps like pine nuts, and worms like fried bacon.

Of all the words in the English language, the word 'set' has the most definitions!
