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.

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)

Meritable Islamic Poetry Part 3 and 4

C.3 But, created though he was in the best of moulds,

Man fell from the Unity when his Will was warped,

And he chose the crooked path of Discord.

And sorrow and pain, selfishness and degradation.

Ignorance and hatred, despair and unbelief

Poisoned his life, and he saw shapes of evil

In the Physical, moral, and spiritual world,

And in himself

C. 4 Then did his soul rise against himself,

And his self-discord made discord between kith and kin:

Men began to fear the strong and oppress the weak,

To boast in prosperity, and curse in adversity.

And to flee each other, pursuing phantoms,

For the truth and reality of Unity

Was gone from their minds.

AMD Phenom II Breaks 7GHz Barrier

7.08GHz. That’s the record-shattering speed an AMD Phenom II processor was overclocked to using a massive amount of liquid helium. You can watch the whole process in this documentary video set to one nice soundtrack. [Crunchgear]

The Revolution’s Beforemath Islamic Writings November 18, 2009

Filed under: Intro's,Muslims Around the World,Stuff in Life — islamnation @ 8:55 pm

Wanting to enhance-amass my Islamic, worldly knowledge and cultivate abilities of wisdom, I turned to books. I find reading books much more enjoyable than reading them off my screen, more healthy too even if it is less advanced.

My family used to have amplitude of aged books. Which I prefer to new ones sometimes for reasons of pure knowledge that new books, simply, do not have. A lot of these books either got lost through time or got sold, which is almost the same as lost but still, there are some thank God in our library.

While following my thirst for wisdom and knowledge I stumbled upon an accomplished book dating the writing from somewhere around 1934( I’m not sure and too lazy to go see it). It was    “The Holy Qur’an Translated, Author Abdullah Yusuf Ali, New revised Edition”. What more could I ask for? Old and Islamic. Perfect. The really nice thing was that it was translated to English, which is the only language I like reading in.

After reading the long prologue and author’s note (most of it at least) the book had a weird section which I never found in any other. It was after the Contents and prologue but before the actual Quranic Translation. It didnt even have a title.

Looking at it, you would perceive that it was poetry, and guess what. It was.

My interest and curiosity relentlessly pulling me, I started reading.

The next day I logged on the internet and started searching for parts of it but I only found one site that had/has any, but the site wasn’t opening with me. Learning this and being backed up with wanting to keep the peotry in the hands of others and the book being a bit old plus Islamic, I decided that publishing it on the net was not plagiarism, but totally the opposite. Other than the fact that American laws do not limit my actions and Syrian and Islamic ones give me freedom.

This is what I am going to start my Internet-Islamic Revolution with. Superior Islamic poetry.

I just hope that you will like it as much as me or even more, and have the capacity to understand it.

I will only post 2 parts for now and update it regularly. Please comment any criticism and opinions.

SUPERIOR ISLAMIC POETRY Part uno and dos


C.1 Glory to Allah Most High, full Grace and Mercy;

He Created All, including Man.

To Man He gave a special place in His Creation

He honored man to be His Agent,

And to that end, endued him with understanding.

Purified his affections, and gave him spiritual insight;

So that man should understand Nature,

Understand himself,

And know Allah through His wondrous signs,

And glorify Him in Truth, reverence, and unity.

C.2 For the fulfillment of this great trust

Man was further given a Will,

So that his act should reflect Allah’s universal Will and Law,

And his mind, freely choosing,

Should experience the sublime joy

Of being in Harmony with the infinite,

And with the great drama of the world around him,

And with his own spiritual growth
