The World Around You

Muslimiam’s Philosophies’ of the Dunia January 4, 2010

Interest. What’s that? What do you mean? Ever heard someone ask what is interest? Love and hate, dislike and like. I doubt it.

I thought of it not a long while ago and decided to write my thoughts upon I, this might also lead me to write a minuscule amount of the astronomical, uncatchable thoughts speeding in my cranium. I will probably call it Muslimiam’s Philosophies. If anyone has got a better name, feel free to express it. To me though…

What makes us, humans, ‘have interest’? First though, what IS interest? I got no idea, but the closest I can get is saying that it is a feeling of love or hate, curiosity or apathy towards a person or object or even a thought. Interest is felt (I think, I am not a doctor) by feelings, or instinct. Which leads us to: what is instinct, what are feelings? But u can forget that I asked that question, for that is not the topic today, and might never be.

Now I will try to only give my opinion on the first question (What’s interest.) I think, so far, that our interest is built on our childhood, and maybe even when we weren’t born yet. You heard of how music affects the baby through the womb, etc?                                                                                                                                                                                                             Interest is affected by the way we were raised, the formula our brains uses when thinking, the formula which grows with us.  When I say ‘raised’, it includes everything we had while we were kids. From the color of our hair till the environment about us till things we don’t know about, including radiation and everything else we don’t see. After all the things we learn, and our experiences through childhood, we start having our own opinions and thoughts, the beginning of a formula. This is what gives us our ‘interest.’

For example, a guy that has grown up in Iraq during the modern wars would have interest in fighting, would be aggressive, unless of course, his family supports peace and sent that message to him, or his family supports violence but the child had too much of it and had grown to detest it. It all depends- in my opinion it’s too complex to study.

A guy that has grown up in the North Pole and lives his adult life in Africa might have a tendency to a fire place in his home, even though no one needs a fireplace in Africa, not that I know of. He might not use it but he like living with it.

A guy born in Russia might prefer republic to democracy. And another alike guy born in the US might prefer the opposite. It really all depends.

I am not sure if there are any specialists in this domain, for I am only writing on the raw experience that I got from meeting people and reading. Feel free to give theories or comments by comments.

Enchanting Muslim Poetry Part 7 and 8

C.7 And so this light of eternal Unity
Has shone in all ages and among all nations
Through chosen Messengers of Allah, who came
As men to dwell among men,
To share their joys and sorrows,
To suffer for them and with them-
Aye, and to suffer more than falls
To ordinary mortal lot-
That so their message and their life
Might fulfil* the eternal
And unchanging purpose of the Most High-
To lead man to his noblest destiny.

C.8 Ever this eternal light of Unity-
This mystic light of Allah’s own Will,
Has shone and shines with undiminished splendour.*
The names of many Messengers are inscribed
In the records of many nations and many tongues,
And many were the forms in which their message was delivered,
And manifold were the lives of the Messengers,
And manifold also was the response of their people;
But they all witnessed to the One Truth:
Of Allah’s unity, might, grace and love.

Historic Islamic Poetry November 30, 2009

Historic Islamic Poetry Part 5 and 6

C.5 When men spread themselves over the earth,

And became many nations,

Speaking diverse languages,

And observing diverse customs and laws;

The evils became multiplied,

As one race or nation

Became alienated from another

The brotherhood of man was now doubly forgotten—

First, between individuals, and secondly between nations.

Arrogance, selfishness, and untruth

Were sown and reaped in larger fields;

And Peace, Faith, Love and Justice

Were obscured over masses of men,

As large tracts of land are starved

Of sunshine by clouds floating far on high.

C.6 But Allah, in His infinite mercy and love,

Who forgives and guides individuals and nations,

And turns to good even what seems to use evil,

Never forsakes the struggling soul that turns to Him,

Nor the groups of men and women

Who join together to obey His Will and Law

And strengthen each other in unity and truth,

Nor the Nations that dwell

In mountain or valley, heat or cold,

In regions fertile or arid,

In societies that roam over land or seas,

Or hunt, or tend flocks, or till the soil,

Or seek the seas for food or oil or fat or gems,

Or dig out from bowels of the earth

Precious stones or metals or stored-up heat and energy,

Or practice arts and crafts, or produce abundant wealth

By machines of ingenious workmanship,

Or live a frugal life of contemplation,

For all are creatures of one God,

And share His loving care

And must be brought within the pale

Of His eternal unity and harmony

 

Diary of ME! First day on Eid Al Adha November 28, 2009

Diary of ME! First day on Eid Al Adha

First Day Eid Al Adha

At Home

Computer Room’s Bed

ZiNG ZiNG!

*mumbling*

ZiNG ZinG!

My mobile has a digital ringtone which, apparently( I worked on it for some time), doesn’t give me the option of changing tones.

Like I said before on different articles, I live with what I have.

My alarm was programmed to ring at around 6:30, and I had to go to the mosque to pray the Eid Prayer, of which I made an appointment with my friend to meet at 7:15. I thought I could use the extra half hour to study and the other 15 minutes to get ready to go. I really had the intention of studying, but I couldn’t do it, when it rung I just re programmed the alarm to ring at 7:01 and went back to sleep.

I was punished though by not being able to go to sleep, so I laid there in bed until I got bored and got up at 6:56, and decided to go get ready.

I Love Eid!

While I was in the bathroom (I was doing waduu, nothing else) I heard the phone go “ZiNG ZiNG!”, again. I was starting to hate that sound, no matter how cool it looks in writing.

*more mumbling*

Mosque

Around 7 : 20

I was late to the prayer, which isn’t common *cough*. Apparently we should have been there at 7:00 not 7:20.

And when it was time for the lecture by the Sheikh, I was destined to be sitting near a gang of noobs that forgot how to shut up, no matter how many people give then the evil eye o_O and all the warnings people give them. Where do they think they are? Some kind of teen social café? I guess that’s my punishment for being late.

Back Home Sweet Home

On my way home, I decided that I got to study at least 20 minutes for my sake! So I did, then went back to my lovely computer and conquered a planet and made extinct two races with my immortal army of beastly red soldiers and a commander that keeps eating dirt. Pfff, “Be aware of the alien, the mutant, …the heretic.” That’s just one of his mottos, or quotes.

I also gave the doorman some meat, since thank God we did sacrifice a sheep and it was mandatory to split it up and give the people in need. Or better’ly’ put, the needy.

Oh yea, I also remembered that today was Friday, time to go to the Friday prayer before I get more late than I already am, enough war, time for peace.

Same Mosque around 3 Hours Later from the First Visit

Darn, late again, what’s up with time today?

The rest of the day was normal.

Diary Part First day on Eid Al Adha Terminated……..

 

Eid Al Adha! Reminder November 26, 2009

Reminder

Eid Al-Adha is a special, unique time for all Muslims. Its a time for rejoice and pure good. Everything you do should be good in the eid period, plus you get more good deeds. Not that you shouldnt do good on other days, of course not! But doing good is emphasized during eid and ramadan, so the more the merrier! Do not fight, curse, look (you get what I mean!), bother, be mean, or anything bad! and do the opposite of bad, which is good(duh) like make friends complement etc…

Read Quran too

And go to the Eid prayer on the first day of Eid (tomorrow morning, early)

Today is also Yum Arafat (The Day of Arafat)

for more info about today read this http://www.jannah.org/articles/dayofarafat.html

My apologies for me blogging little

Hi all readers,

I just want you to know that I am very well alive! And planning to stay that way.

One of the reasons that I’m not blogging much anymore is the crappy net, of which I am not supposed to say the word “crap” because a friend of mine doesn’t like it, so I won’t say it unless I get really REALLY REALLY REALLY mad.

Anyways back to the point, I wasn’t blogging because of my crappy net which is so crappy it doesn’t just not work it turns on then off then on then off then on for another 12 sec then off, mostly off, until you get some type of cyber paranoia thingy and can’t go to sleep. Worst thing of all the people you are talking to on your messengers1 start believing that you really have paranoia. Crap net. This has been going on for around a week, with the usual chance of having a steady but extremely slow connection or having none at all, as if the fact that my best friends brother tends to enjoy the usual downloads and plugging me out of the internet and sometimes the whole LAN is bad enough.

The crappy net is only one of the reasons. I have some other:

School —————- \

Balakoria

Study —————–/

Parents telling me to go study

My eye’s pain from reading so much

My depression

And the fact that I can’t say crap until I get angry.

1(I am not sure about all the other people but I got like 1-3 messengers on sometimes)
