Topic: Be water
Posted: Monday, April 18, 2011 5:57:07 AM
Hello C.C, after a long time, I could find time to translate it .
I also thank Michael.

Be Like Water

Now imagine you are water. Special like water,

So useful and plentyful like water… Inexhaustible.

I believe that you are so , indeed. But whether you are poured from a fountain

Or rained the from sky,or flowed through rivers, you can not fill a bottomless bucket.

In other words, you will not make them hear your voice unless they listen to you.

Remember, the more you cry does not mean the more you listen

You will be only part of the noise.

Those , alongside water, are at the very least drinking it. Because; water is here,somehow.

They think that they do not need to quaff it .

Just the same as those who constantly listen to you but not hear / understand what you mean.

None of the animals in the forest strave to drink water from the gurgling river till now.

All of them waited for the calmest time of morning in order to find river’s stagnant place,

They went and provided their needs equably.

At a suitable time for them and when they want.

Now imagine you are allways water. Beautiful like water,

useful like water and irrevocable like water.

And think of yourself as a source of life like water.But enliven,

Do not be destructive, fastmoving and deadly water.

Be water…But flow with be mercy not disaster !

İf you are water, do not flood the fields, do not desttroy people’s homes,

Don’t let people grumble that you caused disasters.

İf you are water, you can fit into glass; thus you can enter veins.

Water is the one of biggest godsent blessing…

Do not forget you resemble water !

Do not forget be beautiful,be useful, be needed , be inexhaustible like water as well.

Also, do not forget that while you can be calm like water,

You can raise hell, as well.

Do not forget, your duty is to be merciful not catastrophic.

While there are the valleys in front of you to go to,

While there are the plains in front of you where you could have been deployed,

If you split yourself into parts for rivers and even be water in glass, then, you can give life to your surroundings.

And, you can live for ever and ever until the end of the world.

Thank you C.C. for your interest. I have no time because of the my work nowadays.
But in a large time, I think i can write something on that poem. Here is a new one.

This place is a dream
only a sleeper considers it real
then death comes like dawn
and you wake up laughing
at what you thought
was your grief

A man goes to sleep in the town
where he has always lived
and he dreams
he's living in another town
in the dream he doesn't remember
the town he's sleeping in his bed in
he believes the reality
of the dream town
the world is that kind of sleep

Humankind is being led
along an evolving course,
through this migration
of intelligences
and though we seem
to be sleeping
there is an inner wakefulness,
that directs the dream
and that will eventually
startle us back
to the truth of
who we are

Posted: Saturday, January 22, 2011 3:39:41 AM
Dear J.J.

I am agree with you, these countries including Turkiye are squished on account of Human Rights.
Responsible for this situation is not Islam. Islam is very far away from so-called Islamic countries today. Please read below carefully what brings Islam to humankind as Human Rights. And I want to point out that these years 620-640 a.d., before 1400 years. If Islam is common on the world today, neither we will see starvelling people nor wars.

It is very loudly and vociferously claimed that the world got the concept of basic human rights from the Magna Carta of Britain; though the Magna Carta itself came into existence six hundred years after the advent of Islam.

As far as my knowledge goes the Westerners had no concept of human rights and civic rights before the seventeenth century.

Today,as you all know there is not a single resolution or regulation of the United Nations which can be enforced. They are just an expression of a pious hope. They have no sanctions behind them, no force, physical or moral to enforce them. Despite all the high-sounding ambitious resolutions of the United Nations, human rights have been violated and trampled upon at different places, and the United Nations has been a helpless spectator. She is not in a position to exercise an effective check on the violation of human rights.

The Islamic Approach:

The second point which I would like to clarify at the very outset is that when we speak of human rights in Islam we really mean that these rights have been granted by God.

They have not been granted by any king or by any legislative assembly. The rights granted by the kings or the legislative assemblies, can also be withdrawn in the same manner in which they are conferred. The same is the case with the rights accepted and recognized by the dictators. They can confer them when they please and withdraw them when they wish; and they can openly violate them when they like. But since in Islam human rights have been conferred by God, no legislative assembly in the world, or any government on earth has the right or authority to make any amendment or change in the rights conferred by God. No one has the right to abrogate them or withdraw them. Nor are they the basic human rights which are conferred on paper for the sake of show and exhibition and denied in actual life when the show is over. Nor are they like philosophical concepts which have no sanctions behind them.

The charter and the proclamations and the resolutions of the United Nations cannot be compared with the rights sanctioned by God; because the former is not applicable to anybody while the latter is applicable to every believer. They are a part and parcel of the Islamic Faith. Every Muslim or administrators who claim themselves to be Muslims will have to accept, recognize and enforce them. If they fail to enforce them, and start denying the rights that have been guaranteed by God.

BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS

1. The Right to Life

The first and the foremost basic right is the right to live and respect human life. The Holy Quran lays down:

Whosoever kills a human being without (any reason like) man slaughter, or corruption on earth, it is as though he had killed all mankind ... (5:32)

2. The Right to the Safety of Life

Immediately after the verse of the Holy Quran which has been mentioned in connection with the right to life, God has said: "And whoever saves a life it is as though he had saved the lives of all mankind" (5:32).

3. Respect for the Chastity of Women

The third important thing that we find in the Charter of Human Rights granted by Islam is that a woman's chastity has to be respected and protected under all circumstances, whether she belongs to our own nation or to the nation of an enemy, whether we find her in the wild forest or in a conquered city; whether she is our co-religionist or belongs to some other religion or has no religion at all. A Muslim cannot outrage her under any circumstances.

4. The Right to a Basic Standard of Life

Speaking about the economic rights the Holy Quran enjoins upon its followers:

And in their wealth there is acknowledged right for the needy and destitute. (51:19)

The words of this injunction show that it is a categorical and un- qualified order. Furthermore this injunction was given in Makkah where there was no Muslim society in existence and where generally the Muslims had to come in contact with the population of the disbelievers. Therefore the clear meaning of this verse is that anyone who asks for help and anyone who is suffering from deprivation has a right in the property and wealth of the Muslims; irrespective of the fact whether he belongs to this nation or to that nation, to this country or to that country, to this race or to that race. If you are in a position to help and a needy person asks you for help or if you come to know that he is in need, then it is your duty to help him. God has established his right over you, which you have to honour as a Muslim.

5. Individual's Right to Freedom

Islam has clearly and categorically forbidden the primitive practice of capturing a free man, to make him a slave or to sell him into slavery. On this point the clear and unequivocal words of the Prophet (S) are as follows: "There are three categories of people against whom I shall myself be a plaintiff on the Day of Judgement. Of these three, one is he who enslaves a free man, then sells him and eats this money" (al-Bukhari and Ibn Majjah). The words of this Tradition of the Prophet are also general, they have not been qualified or made applicable to a particular nation, race, country or followers of a particular religion. The Europeans take great pride in claiming that they abolished slavery from the world, though they had the decency to do so only in the middle of the last century. Before this, these Western powers had been raiding Africa on a very large scale, capturing their free men, putting them in bondage and transporting them to their new colonies. The treatment which they have meted out to these unfortunate people has been worse than the treatment given to animals. The books written by the Western people themselves bear testimony to this fact.

6. The Right to Justice

This is a very important and valuable right which Islam has given to man as a human being. The Holy Quran has laid down: "Do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression" (5:2). "And do not let ill-will towards any folk incite you so that you swerve from dealing justly. Be just; that is nearest to heedfulness" (5:8). Stressing this point the Quran again says: "You who believe stand steadfast before God as witness for (truth and) fairplay" (4:135). This makes the point clear that Muslims have to be just not only with ordinary human beings but even with their enemies. In other words, the justice to which Islam invites her followers is not limited only to the citizens of their own country, or the people of their own tribe, nation or race, or the Muslim community as a whole, but it is meant for all the human beings of the world. Muslims therefore, cannot be unjust to anyone. Their permanent habit and character should be such that no man should ever fear injustice at their hands, and they should treat every human being everywhere with justice and fairness.

7. Equality of Human Beings

Islam not only recognizes absolute equality between men irrespective of any distinction of colour, race or nationality, but makes it an important and significant principle, a reality. The Almighty God has laid down in the Holy Quran: "O mankind, we have created you from a male and female." In other words all human beings are brothers to one another. They all are the descendants from one father and one mother. "And we set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other" (49:13). This means that the division of human beings into nations, races, groups and tribes is for the sake of distinction, so that people of one race or tribe may meet and be acquainted with the people belonging to another race or tribe and cooperate with one another. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor is it meant for one nation to treat another with contempt or disgrace, or regard them as a mean and degraded race and usurp their rights. "Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you" (49:13).

In other words the superiority of one man over another is only on the basis of God-consciousness, purity of character and high morals, and not on the basis of colour, race, language or nationality, and even this superiority based on piety and pure conduct does not justify that such people should play lord or assume airs of superiority over other human beings. Assuming airs of superiority is in itself a reprehensible vice which no God-fearing and pious man can ever dream of perpetrating. Nor does the righteous have more privileged rights over others, because this runs counter to human equality, which has been laid down in the beginning of this verse as a general principle. From the moral point of view, goodness and virtue is in all cases better than vice and evil.

This has been exemplified by the Prophet in one of his sayings thus: "No Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab. Nor does a white man have any superiority over a black man, or the black man any superiority over the white man. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay" (al-Bayhaqi and al-Bazzaz). In this manner Islam established equality for the entire human race and struck at the very root of all distinctions based on colour, race, language or nationality. According to Islam,God has given man this right of equality as a birthright. Therefore no man should be discriminated against on the ground of the colour of his skin, his place of birth, the race or the nation in which he was born. Malcolm X, the famous leader of African Negroes in America, who had launched a bitter struggle against the white people of America in order to win civil rights for his black compatriots, when he went to perform the pilgrimage, and saw how the Muslims of Asia, Africa, Europe, America and those of different races, languages and colours of skin, were wearing one dress and were hurrying towards God's House-the Ka'bah and offering prayers standing in one row and there was no distinction of any kind between them, then he realized that this was the solution to the problem of colour and race, and not what he had been trying to seek or achieve in America so far. Today, a number of non- Muslim thinkers, who are free from blind prejudice, openly admit that no other religion or way of life has solved this problem with the same degree of success with which Islam has done so.

8. The Right to Co-operate and Not to Co-operate

Islam has prescribed a general principle of paramount importance and universal application saying: "Co-operate with one another for virtue and heedfulness and do not co-operate with one another for the purpose of vice and aggression" (5:2). This means that the man who undertakes a noble and righteous work, irrespective of the fact whether he is living at the North Pole or the South Pole, has the right to expect support and active co-operation from the Muslims. On the contrary he who perpetrates deeds of vice and aggression, even if he is our closest relation or neighbour, does not have the right to win our support and help in the name of race, country, language or nationality, nor should he have the expectation that Muslims will co-operate with him or support him.

Wercozy,

It is definetly valid interpretation for Noble Verse 4:43 and 5:6 that Allah Almighty commanded the Muslim ( both men and women ) to clean themselves for Salat (prayer). The Muslims have to be clean for worship. It is very essential. I think you read this verses. It doesn’t mean what you understand.

[4:43] O you who believe, do not observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) while intoxicated, so that you know what you are saying. Nor after sexual orgasm without bathing, unless you are on the road, traveling; if you are ill or traveling, or you had urinary or fecal-related excretion (such as gas), or contacted the women (sexually), and you cannot find water, you shall observe Tayammum (dry ablution) by touching clean dry soil, then wiping your faces and hands therewith. GOD is Pardoner, Forgiver.

[5:6] O you who believe, when you observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), you shall: (1) wash your faces, (2) wash your arms to the elbows, (3) wipe your heads, and (4) wash your feet to the ankles. If you were unclean due to sexual orgasm, you shall bathe. If you are ill, or traveling, or had any digestive excretion (urinary, fecal, or gas), or had (sexual) contact with the women, and you cannot find water, you shall observe the dry ablution (Tayammum) by touching clean dry soil, then rubbing your faces and hands. GOD does not wish to make the religion difficult for you; He wishes to cleanse you and to perfect His blessing upon you, that you may be appreciative.

Tayammum


Tayammum (Arabic: تيمم‎) is the Islamic act of dry ablution using sand or dust, which may be performed in place of ritual washing (wudu or ghusl) if no clean water is readily available.

Circumstances when tayammum is necessary

Tayammum may be substituted for wudu or ghusl when access to water is restricted or impractical, namely

•When sufficient amounts of water for ritual washing are not available, including when using the

available water for wudu or ghusl would leave insufficient water for drinking.

•When obtaining water is hazardous or prohibitively expensive.

•When using water poses a health risk.

Performing tayammum

Tayammum consists of the following steps:

1.Finding a piece of ground which is free of najaasah. This could be any natural surface such as rock, sand, or dust.

2.Recite the bismillah.

3.Make niyyah, or intention to make tayammum.

4.Place the hands on the surface of the ground.

5.Lift hands with palms downwards, ensuring that no dust remains, may rub them together.
6.Rub face with hands.

7.Press hands to ground and touch sides of hands together.

8.Rub right arm with left hand, from the fingers to the elbow, and back along the inner arm to the hand. Do the same with the other arm.

The same conditions that invalidate wudu also invalidate tayammum. In addition, a person's tayammum is invalidated as and when water becomes available.

Items on which Tayammum is permitted

•Taahir (pure) earth
•Sand
•Stone
•Limestone
•Baked earthen pots (unglazed)
•Walls of mud, stone or brick
•Clay
•All items which have thick dust on them

Items on which Tayammum is not permitted

•Wood
•Metal
•Glass
•Food Items
•All items which burn to ash, rot or melt

Medical Benefit of Ablution (Wudu)and Tayammum

There are three principle benefits that human health derives from washing our body. They are related to the circulatory system, the immune system and the electrostatic balance of the body.

1) Blood Circulatory System:

Blood vessels are the essential part of the circulatory system. Blood vessels resemble flexible tubing, dividing into thinner branches as the distance from the heart increases.

Various aspects of our life cause the blood vessels to harden and become constricted. If the thinner tubes in particular becomes hardened and loses their elasticity, pressure and workload upon the heart are increased. In medical term it is known as arterio-sclerosis. Sclerotic development is considered to be the basis of aging and body deterioration.

Practical Measures:

Hardening and narrowing of the blood vessels does not happen all at once, but over a long period of time. The vessels furthest from heart, such as those in brain, feet and hands, are more vulnerable to the process that begins slowly in these locations and goes no continuously with the passage of time.
Water gives rise to temperature gradient, which cause blood vessels to have a sort of exercise by alternately contraction and dilation. Hence water ensures flexibility and visor of the vessels away from the heart by dilating them when hot and contracting them when cold. It also forces nutrients, deposited in tissues as a result of sluggish circulation, back into the bloodstream by the virtue of the temperature difference.

There is no doubt, as we see when Muslims daily wash their hands, feet and face in wudu rite is really a favour to them from the creator.

2) Immune System (Lymphatic Circulation):

The lymphatic system (whose vessels are ten times thinner than those, which conduct red blood cell) keeps all the point of the body within the protection of the immune system. Any bacteria, alien object or cancer cell, which may have invaded the body is destroyed by the leucocytes (white blood cells) in the lymphatic circulation.

Thus we see that the structure of the immune system is reinforced through wudu. In fact the way wudu is performed so specifically (step by step) clearly aims at lymphatic system. The reasons are as follows:
For the lymphatic system to function properly even a single point in the body must not be neglected, which is assured by the full ablution or the Gusl. The most important center for stimulating the lymphatic system is the nasopharyngeal region behind the nose and tonsils. Washing these spots is especially ordered.

Stimulation of the both sides of the neck has great influence on the lymphatic system and is also part of wudu.

Thus we see, the lymphocytes are transported to the farthest reaches of the body and, after passing through intensive biological training, patrol each point in the body many times a day. If they meet a bacterium or the cancer cell, they destroy it. Is this not a divine blessing of the first quality?

3) Static Electricity

The body normally has balance of static electricity. However the atmospheric conditions as well as plastic clothing and the products common in our daily life adversely affect this balance. Most of us are aware of this electricity when getting out of the car or after sitting on a plastic chair. Irritability and facial wrinkles are the best known ill results, though there are many psychosomatic illnesses arising from it.

The worst influence of static electricity is exerted continuously on the small sub-cutaneous muscles (under the skin), finally rendering them inoperative, which is why wrinkles are set in.
These bad effects due to imbalance of static electricity can be simply avoided by doing the wudu several times a day. At this point many readers would have divined at least one of the reasons for the radiant appearance of those who have done wudu all their lives.


Conclusion:


Thus, it is distinct that besides above-mentioned benefits, ablution also protects from tooth decays, eye infections, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, pelvic infections and other bacterial infections.
One might say, but I normally wash my face and hand daily anyway. Let us recall, however, this as a widespread public habit /practice has a very short history (barely 70 years or so) even amongst nations who have a tendency to claim to be the most civilized in the world. However this privilege Muslims have enjoyed for more than 1400 years.

Moreover, the cleanliness based on the sort of general human rules can never be sustained with steadiness of discipline, which in Islam it has, by the virtue of its association with worship.
To be sure, the worth and significance of wudu does not end with these medical observations, as it is a favor for us from the Almighty that may include so much (medical, spiritual, social etc) we don’t know.

"…..Allah does not wish to place you in a difficulty,

But to make you clean, And to complete His favour to you, That ye may be grateful"
[Surah 5:6]

Posted: Friday, January 21, 2011 7:42:59 AM
wERRcozy,

What you said about mulim women is very disguisting and nasty. Before your claim , read something.
The rights which is given to women by Allah in Quaran is not given in America, Europa even today.

Women's Rights in the Islam

Anyone wishing to understand women position in Islam must first separate the religion from the cultural norms and style of a society.

The Quran is addressed to all Muslims, and for the most part it does not differentiate between male and female. Man and woman, it says, "were created of a single soul," and are moral equals in the sight of God. Women have the right to divorce, to inherit property, to conduct business and to have access to knowledge.

Marriage

Parents have no right to force young women to marry against their will after they have reached marriagable age. There is much evidence in the hadith to show that forced marriages are not legal and the wife has the right to have them annulled:

Ibn Abbas reported that a girl came to the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad* and she reported that her father had forced her to marry without her consent. The Messenger of Allah* gave her the choice ... (between accepting the marriage and invalidating it).

The Prophet also advised that couples should see one another before getting married, so there is no Islamic basis for the custom of marrying young couples who have never set eyes on one another. If a woman does find that she cannot bear the man she is married to, even because she finds him ugly, Islamic law makes it possible for a court to give her a divorce from him. It is only necessary to prove that she hates him irrevocably - the court does not need to probe into the reasons for the hatred. The Prophet granted divorces to at least two women in such circumstances. One of them, Jamila, the sister of the hypocrite Abdullah Ibn Ubayy, told the Prophet about her objection to her husband Thabit Ibn Qais:
Messenger of Allah! Nothing can keep the two of us together. As I lifted my veil, I saw him coming, accompanied by some men. I could see that he was the blackest, the shortest and the ugliest of them all. By Allah! I do not dislike him for any blemish in his faith or his morals, it is his ugliness that I dislike. Had the fear of Allah not stood in my way, I must have spat on him when he came to me. ... I am afraid my desperation might drive my Islam closer to disbelief.

Polygyny

If a woman does not feel that she could allow her husband to marry more than one woman at the same time, then Islam allows her the right to refuse him permission to do this at the outset of their marriage, however, she must indicate this preference in the Prenuptial Agreement or she will forfeit this right under the Islamic Law. If she is uncertain as to whether or not she will be opposed to her husband marrying a second wife later on, then she could include that in the agreement and thus make it binding upon her husband that he must consult her at that time and that he must then abide by her wishes. To say nothing, however, could possibly invite more pain than gain as far as her desires are concerned.

Mahr

This is the dower, or gift from the groom to the bride, of either a fixed financial amount or even a property amount and it is usually given immediately at the time of the marriage. However, either some of it or all of it may be deferred until a later time where it would become payable to the wife either upon the death or divorce of her husband. This is her Islamic right.

Divorce

In Islam, divorce is permitted when serious differences arise which cannot be resolved through reconciliation. However, it has to be the last resort, for the Prophet p.b.u.h. has described divorce as the most detestable of all lawful things in the sight of God.

In cases of divorce, the mother has first claim to custody of the young children, followed by other female members of her family, if she remarries or is unable to look after the children. The right reverts to the husband's family only after the children reach an age of greater independence, which varies according to the school of law, and then the wishes of the child must be taken into consideration, if the example of the Prophet is to be followed. In a disputed case, he asked the child:
This is your father and this is your mother, so take whichever of them you wish by the hand.
Hadith: Abu Dawud, Nasa'i, Darimi

The boy went to his mother.

In another case a woman approached the Prophet telling him that her husband had embraced Islam while she had refused to do so, adding that her daughter was being deprived of mother's milk as her father was taking her away. The Prophet made the child sit between mother and father and said both of them should call her. The child would go to whoever she chose. The child responded to the mother. The Prophet prayed to Allah to guide the child and the child then chose the father, and hence Rafi (the father) took the child (Hadith: Abu Dawud).

Husbands are expected to treat their wives kindly during marriage and even during and after divorce. Allah says in the Qur'an.

Financial Independence

According to Muslim Family Law, the responsibility for the wife's maintenance (nafqa) always remains with the husband. The wife has no corresponding obligation to support her husband. The Muslim law principle which has been jealously guarded and enforced by Muslim law courts is that a woman's property is hers alone.

Islamic law makes no demand that women should confine themselves to household duties. In fact the early Muslim women were found in all walks of life. The first wife of the Prophet, mother of all his surviving children, was a businesswoman.

The husband has the duty to support and maintain the wife, as stated in the Qur'an, and this is held to be so even if she is rich in her own right. He has no right to expect her to support herself, let alone support his children or him. If she does contribute to the household income this is regarded as a charitable deed on her part.

The Muslim woman has always had the right to own and manage her own property. Marriage in Islam does not mean that the man takes over the woman's property, nor does she automatically have the right to all his property if he dies intestate. Both are still regarded as individual people with responsibilities to other members of their family - parents, brothers, sisters etc. and inheritance rights illustrate this.
The husband has the duty to support and maintain the wife, as stated in the Qur'an, and this is held to be so even if she is rich in her own right. He has no right to expect her to support herself, let alone support his children or him. If she does contribute to the household income this is regarded as a charitable deed on her part.

Education and Employment

Muslim women may restate their God-given Islamic rights to education and independence to work (employment, business, professions, etc.) in the Prenuptial agreement at this time which could be used beneficially both in Muslim as well as non-Muslim countries. Women in the west have already been accorded these rights by law, although in practise the husband may or may not approve of a wife either working or getting a higher education. So it would be prudent for both the husband and the wife, either in the West or the East, to be clear on this issue so as to prevent discord and unhappiness in the marriage.

Houseworks

Nor are women expected to do the housework. If they have not been used to doing it, the husband is obliged to provide domestic help within his means, and to make sure that the food gets to his wife and children, already cooked. The Prophet himself used to help with the domestic work, and mended his own shoes.Women are not even obliged in all cases to suckle their own children. If a divorcing couple mutually agree, they can send the baby to a wet-nurse and the husband must pay for the suckling. If the mother decides to keep the baby and suckle it herself, he must pay her for her trouble!
This is laid down in the Qur'an itself, (2:233):


In a truely Islamic society women have the following rights in Islam:

1. The right and duty to obtain education.
2. The right to have their own independent property.
3. The right to work to earn money if they need it or want it.
4. Equality of reward for equal deeds.
5. The right to express their opinion and be heard.
6. The right to provisions from the husband for all her needs and more.
7. The right to negotiate marriage terms of her choice.
8. The right to obtain divorce from her husband, even on the grounds that she simply can't stand him.
9. The right to keep all her own money (she is not responsible to maintain any relations).
10. Custody of their children after divorce.
11. to refuse any marriage that does not please them

and more...

wERRcozy,

It is intresting to me that you are giving attention this kind of discussing. I strongly advise/warn you do not mention Quaran that entertaining. It is misbehave and immorality.

Come to your question;

Why do Allah say ‘’We’’ in Quaran ?

The Qur’an says very clearly that there is only One God, Allah. “There is no god but Allah” is the basic principle of Islam. there are hundreds of ayat or verses of the Qur’an that make this point very clear. Belief in more than one God is Shirk (polytheism) and a major sin according to the Qur’an.

Whenever in the Qur’an Allah is mentioned in the third person there are always singular pronouns used, such as He, him Whenever Allah is spoken to in the second person there are also singular pronouns, such as Thou, Thine and Thee However only in the first person some times the pronouns I, My or Mine are used and sometimes We, Us and Our are used.

This is a style of speech. Sometime the speaker says I and sometime says we. We also use that in our conversations. In the Qur’an you will see that often the first person singular such as I or My is used, when Allah speaks about His love, care and closeness and forgiveness for His servants.

Second Question You Ask:

There are so many sects, cults, religions, philosophies, and movements in the world, all of which claim to be the right way or the only true path to Allah. You should find your way.
I can not tell why Jews believe they are The Choosen ! or Christian believe only those who believe in Jesus will enter heaven.

Muslims beleve that all those who submit to Allah, do what He asked and avoid what he proscribed will go to Heaven.

But,Allah threats disbelievers. Because,the evil spirits and those who follow them can cause great destractions with small acts.

Quran say christian and jewish believers who obey their messengers and obey Allah and did not take parteners with him will be in heaven .But ,on the other hand , it tells us that those who disobey Allah will be in hell whether they are pagans,Muslims, Christians or Jews.

Your Third Question:

According to tradition, this took place in a seaside Jewish community during the time of David. Because of their injustice, God gave them a trial. He caused fish to appear in their weirs on the Sabbath, but not on other days. If they had not set out their weirs on the Sabbath, this could not have occurred. In so doing, they dared God to punish them. At the same time, God tested their Sabbath observance by bringing fish only on that day. He would not have done so, had they been obedient.

There is disagreement on whether the change into apes was literal or not. The result is the same, whether it is a physical change or a mental one. The Sabbath is provided for spiritual development through submission to the divine command and through the recitation, hearing, and studying of the sacred books in worship. To fail to submit oneself to God and neglect the revelatory blessings of the Sabbath is to make a monkey of oneself. That is, to make oneself capable of obedience only as mimicry and without spiritual understanding. There is no doubt that monkeys fulfill the Creator’s praise, nor does this verse deride them. From the human point of view, monkeys are characterized by the trait of mimicry. To be an ape means to carry out the forms of religion without spiritual discernment. This is the logical result of neglecting the Sabbath.

It is obvious that you do not read any passage of Quaran.Quaran is beyond of humankind writings. If you have doubt this matter, i suggest you read the surah of Jonah (Yunus) .Without doubt, this quaran addresses man who searches fort he truth. It is up to you if believe it. By the way, Hz. Muhammet pbuh was illiterate.

Hello Kitty, Intelfam. Thank you for your interest.

Why did I put this passage?

There are such treasure books that either we do not know them or evenif we know their names,
we do not give attention. Secondly, If anybody knows this kind of book, please inform me.
I read this book fort he first time I was eleven or twelve. Those days, it seemed me like only fables. Years passed,I read it several times. Whenever I read it I learned something that I have not realized before.

Thirdly, I want people give attention/interest in this book and its rich stories.It does not matter her/his age what and whoever read it he will find it useful.

To me, Kalilah and Dimnah is different ,because of its high quality contents, from Aesop fables.

Lastly, I want that souls of people breathe different air .This book contains lofty lessons for our souls. I wish I could write whole book here but impossible.

Maybe, you want to read more :

Some might see a glitch in this logic.


You are right. But it is too difficult to satisfy everybody at the same time.
