שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

4 Seasons

Posted By Snow at 11/30/2010 3 comments

يخرج الحي من الميت [Q6:95]
Spring seems like a burst of life after winter

The 4 seasons - spring, summer, autumn & winter - happen when the intensity of sunlight changes on Earth due to the tilt of the Earth as it circles the sun. In the summer, the northern hemisphere is more exposed to direct sunlight; while in winter it is less exposed to it.

The changes of season shows - a change in temperature changes our whole environment. The weather changes. Animals hibernate or migrate. Plants become dormant.

A change in temperature really affects us.

So what will happen if Earth becomes extremely warm? It had been extremely warm. So it is not always about will it happen, because it already happened. During the Permian period, global warming is a suspect for our planet's greatest mass extinction - the Great Dying. [sa]

So knowing our history, scientists ponder our future on this planet. Our human activities, like burning fossil fuels (vehicles) & deforestation may heat the Earth. ظهر الفساد في البر والبحر بما كسبت أيدي الناس [Q30:41] Earth is the only livable planet for us, and I imagine a hotter Earth is like Venus. Venus' surface temperature alone is 467°C. So it's important for us to care for the environment.
اعوذب لله من الشيطان الرجيم
واختلاف الليل والنهار وما أنزل الله من السماء من رزق
فأحيا به الأرض بعد موتها وتصريف الرياح آيات لقوم يعقلون
And (in) the alternation of night and day, and (in) what Allah sends down from the sky of provision and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness, and (in His) directing of the winds are signs for a people who reason.
[Holy Quran 45:5]
Anyway like the seasons, life on Earth had lived & died & lived again. It has happened. After the Permian died, Earth was resurrected - with the next generation of species - the dinosaurs. Then the dinosaurs died as well, and the Earth resurrects again with humans.

It's amazing. The resurrection. إن يشأ يذهبكم ويأت بخلق جديد [Q14:19-20]
Que sera sera. I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors. والله أعلم

Summa Cum Laude

Posted By Snow at 11/27/2010 3 comments

New England is famous for its universities
oh to be an MIT student in autumn

Regarding places in the university, I'm currently in the view that places should be awarded by merit. University should be a place that spearheads knowledge, with people who have the abilities to safeguard its distinction of higher learning. الذين أوتوا العلم درجات [Q58:11] And by higher learning, I mean how Bezier equations (P(u,v) = ∑ ∑ Bi,n(u) Bj,m(v) Ki,j) are higher than basic multiplications (3 x 7 = 21).

The university should safeguard this distinction, and benefit society with its wisdom. E.g.:
Research in physics resulted in telecommunication devices | AG Bell
Research in medicine resulted in new treatment, vaccines | radiology, stem cells
Computer technology aids in various fields, e.g: law enforcement | graphics
And the woman who made history in higher education is - Marie Curie. She was the first woman to win 2 Nobel Prizes. But as destiny have it... even with the accomplishments, she was not rich. Due to her research, she even fell ill by being exposed to radiation. But the richness is, her research & sacrifices still benefit us till this very day - through various applications in medical diagnosis, cancer treatment. Her Curie Institute lives on. Cancer Care lives on. ومن يؤتى الحكمة فقد أوتي خيرا كثيرا [Q2:269]

In Islam richness is in good deeds, so this is the way to be rich. الحمد لله

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

المال والبنون زينة الحياة الدنيا والباقيات الصالحات خير عند ربك ثوابا وخير أملا

Wealth and children are (but) adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds
are better to your Lord for reward and better for (one's) hope.
[Holy Quran 18:46] | Q59:18
