Just got this mail...
A couple lost their 25 year old son in a fire at home on June 4th. The son who had graduated with MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison two weeks earlier had come home for a while.
He had lunch with his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his hostel room. His father told him to wait, to meet his mother, before he went back for a few days. He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come back home from work.
Some time later their neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of the house. Unfortunately, the 25 years old died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire. It was determined that the fire was caused by the lap top resting on the bed.
When the lap top was on the bed cooling fan did not get the air to cool the computer and that is what caused the fire. He did not even wake up to get out of the bed because he died of breathing in carbon monoxide.
The reason I am writing this to all of you is that I have seen many of us and also our sons & daughters using the lap top while in bed and in the Arabic mattress salon . Let us all decide and make it a practice not to do that. The risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to use the lap top on bed or
on the Arabic mattress with blankets and pillows around.
Please educate as many people as you can.
"Please pass to everyone you know"
May Allah save us from such disasters. Be careful Plz...

Yes you are right, Information should be shared with source.
Kindly read the text again, I mentioned that I got this VIA MAIL. Its neither any ayah or hadith or something sensitive like sacred stuff, 4 which i should be careful of authenticity. Its just a bad experience of one person with the laptop which is shared to make the others careful.
Anyhow, thanks for the concern.
