One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands....



Narrated by Abu Musa (R.A)

Some people asked Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W), “Whose Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?” He replied, “One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands.”

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 10


Skull and Bones, Scroll and Key, and Wolf’s Head are three of the most famous secret societies at Yale University

Yale University, renowned for its prestigious academics and illustrious alumni, holds within its historic walls, several secret societies, with the exact number varying over time. These clandestine groups, shrouded in mystery and intrigue, have long been a part of Yale’s rich tapestry, captivating the imaginations of many. Skull and Bones, Scroll and Key, and Wolf’s Head are three of the most famous secret societies at Yale University, each with its own unique traditions and rituals. While the specifics of their manifestos are not publicly known due to the secretive nature of these societies, they are known to focus on fostering bonds of fellowship among members, promoting leadership and service, and maintaining a sense of exclusivity and mystery.


Skull and Bones, founded in 1832, is perhaps the most famous of the Yale secret societies. Its members are known as Bonesmen and include many influential figures in American history including former U.S. presidents such as George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, as well as numerous senators, Supreme Court justices, and business magnates. The society is known for its tomb-like building, known as the “The Tomb,” on the Yale campus and its rituals, which are said to include initiation rites and the sharing of personal histories.

Scroll and Key, founded in 1841, is another prestigious society at Yale. Its members are known as “Keys” and include many distinguished individuals. The society is known for its distinctive building, or “tomb,” on the Yale campus. Its impressive “tombs” are architectural marvels, blending seamlessly into the Yale campus. Scroll and Key emphasizes intellectual and cultural pursuits and has a diverse membership that includes renowned journalists, politicians, and business leaders. Members are selected based on their academic and extracurricular achievements.

Wolf’s Head, founded in 1883, is one of the more recently established secret societies at Yale. Its members are known as “Heads” and, like the other societies, include many notable individuals. Wolf’s Head is known for its focus on literary and artistic pursuits, as well as its commitment to community service. The society also has a tomb-like building on the Yale campus where its meetings and rituals take place.
