    A 20 year-old has lived 7300 days, or 175200 hours, or 10.512.000 million minutes, or about 630.720.000 seconds.

    A lifespan of 100 years goes to be about 36.500 days or 876.000 hours, or 52.560.000 minutes, or 3.135.600.000 seconds.

    A day has 24 hours or 1440 minutes, or 86.400 seconds. 6-8 hours on school or work. 16-18 hours left. or in other words 960 / 1080 minutes.

    Allahu alam.

    Weird Interesting Facts !

    Meaning of Shirk according to The Qur'an
    " Worshipping anyone or anything besides Allah " or " distributing anything exclusive to Allah, to anyone or anything else "

    Meaning of Tawheed according to The Qur'an
    Worshipping none but Allah. Affirming whatever is exclusive to Him, Him alone.

    In 1600´s English, "humpty dumpty" was a parable of very drunked person. When a drunkard who felt off from the wall became an egg in the nursery rythm, may happened few centuries later.
