Ashura

Posted By Snow at 11/13/2013 4 comments


Allah SWT, the Creator of the universe, is Far Superior and Higher

Tomorrow is Ashura. It's the day when Allah SWT saved the Israelite from the Pharaoh. [QA] The lesson of the Pharaoh is - mankind should never turn a human into an idol. All worship is only sincerely for the One God, Allah SWT. Allah SWT only appreciates good deeds that you intend for Him. & whoever hope for a good meeting with Allah SWT on Judgement Day [QA], should work righteousness. فليعمل عملا صالح [Q18:110]

The persecutions were a great trial. So after the exodus, the Israelite was blessed with a special Covenant with Allah SWT at Mt Sinai. ولقد أخذ الله ميثاق بني إسرائيل [Q5:12 | QA] The Covenant includes the 10 Commandments, [Q2:83-84] inscribed on the Stone Tablet & safe kept in the Ark of Covenant. Prophet Moses also received the Torah, which was guidance for the Israelite. [Q6:154]
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

ولقد آتينا موسى الكتاب فلا تكن في مرية من لقائه، وجعلناه هدى لبني إسرائيل
وجعلنا منهم أئمة يهدون بأمرنا لما صبروا، وكانوا بآياتنا يوقنون
And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture, so do not be in doubt over his meeting. And we made the Torah guidance for the Children of Israel. And We made from among them leaders guiding by Our command when they were patient and (when) they were certain of Our signs. [Holy Quran 32:23-24]

ولقد آتينا بني إسرائيل الكتاب والحكم والنبوة
ورزقناهم من الطيبات وفضلناهم على العالمين
And We did certainly give the Children of Israel the Scripture and judgement and prophethood, and We provided them with good things, and We made them excel the nations. [Holy Quran 45:16]
Blessed with the Scripture & prophethood, the Israelite excelled the nations. ماشاء الله

But then, differences arose among themselves & the Covenant was broken. So they became exiled from the Holy Land — spreading across the earth into nations. وقطعناهم في الأرض أمما [Q7:168] But among them are still blessed with prophethood; so did nations embraced them as leaders due to their wisdom & stature? وجعلنا منهم أئمة [Q32:23-24] Did they guide & mix with all mankind? [Genesis 28:14]

So then, when these worldwide Israelite returned to the faith of their origin, all Israelite & mankind will also return to the faith in its origin. It's the same faith of the first man, Prophet Adam and his wife, Hawa. [QA] They too had a Covenant with Allah SWT, but they broke it & fell to the Earth. But they humbled themselves & repented, [QA]  unlike Iblis who ceased hoping for Allah's Mercy. & they worked righteousness, in the hopes of returning to heaven. So I believe the true faith is to repent, work righteousness, & with His Mercy, may we return to heaven as well.

In malay, the words for some Islamic beliefs are not arabic, but sanskrit. E.g:  agama (आगम : religion), puasa (उपवास : fast), syurga (स्वर्ग : heaven), neraka (नरक : hell), dosa (दोष : sin), pahala (फल : reward). Did these sanskrit words originate from the Vedic Period?

Could it be related to the Israelite?

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors.

Have anyone asked how an Asian guy looked like that ماشاء الله

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
والتين والزيتون وطور سينين وهذا البلد الأمين
لقد خلقنا الإنسان في أحسن تقويم ثم رددناه أسفل سافلين
إلا الذين آمنوا وعملوا الصالحات فلهم أجر غير ممنون
فما يكذبك بعد بالدين أليس الله بأحكم الحاكمين

Holy Quran 95

Central Asians

Tajik Pamiri children | wiki

Laiba Hazrat, 5
Afghan refugee in Islamabad


Pashtun girl in Peshawar

ماشاء الله these children live in Tajikistan. But can they actually look Russian? Russian, Bosnian... OK I can't tell the difference between how the Soviet and the Balkan looks, but you know... Still, are the Tajik Pamiri actually of Persian roots?

FYI, Central Asia has one of the most colorful DNAs | map
واختلاف ألسنتكم وألوانكم [Q30:22] ماشاء الله

So, how did the East & West mixed?

 1  For one, could mixing have happened during the Israelite exile around 6th century BC? Some tribes are said to trace their ancestry to the Israelite, e.g: the Bukharan Isro’il (Israel), Pashtun.

 2  Then in the 4th century BC - from the west - Alexander the Great spread the Macedonian empire across Central Asia. & Alexander promoted mix marriage - he himself married Stateira II in ancient Persia & Roxana in ancient Afghanistan. This period saw the rise of Greek culture across the region, called the Hellenistic Period.

In this period, even the New Testament was written in Greek, not Hebrew. [Q14:4]
So, does this mean the New Testament is spread in Greek - across a multi cultural world? الحمد لله

 3  Then in the 13th century - from the east - the Mongols became the largest contiguous empire in human history, sweeping across Central Asia. When they eventually embraced Islam, Samarkand and Bukhara became learning centers, with one of the finest observatory in Samarkand. الحمد لله


The 15th century Admiral Zheng He is genetically Persian with roots from Bukhara | ref
It seems from Persia, the route to the East splits near Bukhara towards Nepal and Tian Shan | map
The Persian شیر (shir) means "lion", like the Hindi शेर (sher) and Chinese 獅 (shi) | ref | BC

And the robe above is the 道袍 (dopo), similar to the ثوب (thobe) | Enlightenment | Pacific



Where the West and the East mix together



Food like matzo spread East and West as well - to Turkey, Iran, Central Asia (◠9◠) | wiki
It's cooked in the tandoor - an earthen oven for baking bread & roasting meat - like the chicken tandoori

Ten Nights

Posted By Snow at 7/30/2013 2 comments


The last 10 nights of Ramadhan is here الحمد لله
May Allah SWT blesses & forgives us.

Honestly, when I see the saf (rows) of people, it resembles the magnetic field. [ref] ماشاء الله It's the way iron dusts align around a magnet. FYI, humans also have iron in our blood... حجارة أو حديدا [Q17:50]

& the tawaf (circling the Kaabah) resembles the birth of stars, galaxies, planets, atoms, time, movements, snow. (◠oo◠)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

ألم تر إلى الذين يزكون أنفسهم ۚ بل الله يزكي من يشاء ولا يظلمون فتيلا
Have you not seen those who claim themselves to be pure? Rather, Allah purifies whom He wills, and injustice is not done to them, (even) as much as a thread (inside a date seed). [Holy Quran 4:49]

فلا تزكوا أنفسكم ۖ هو أعلم بمن اتقى ...
... So do not claim yourselves to be pure. He is Most Knowing of who has taqwa. [Partial Holy Quran 53:32]

Google Science Fair

Some of the 2013 finalists:

Esha Maiti, 17
California

She developed a computer code to better understand breast cancer, aiming to predict the size and spread of tumors.
Elif Bilgin, 16
Turkey

She developed a method for making plastic by using banana peels. The bio-plastic can be used to make cosmetic prosthesis and insulate cables.
Ann Makosinski, 16
Canada

She designed a flashlight that runs solely of body heat. She's interested in alternative energy, particularly harvesting the wasted energy around us.

See all the 15 finalists here

I'm happy they are doing good in this world. ليبلوكم أيكم أحسن عملا [Q67:2], فليعمل عملا صالح [Q18:110] For Malaysia, I believe if the nation wants to excel in science, it's really about supporting the talents. Not about the language, these kids are probably smart enough to transcend languages anyway. What they need is the support & pathways for them to grow. تفسحوا [Q58:11], فهو يقضي بها ويعلمها [SM4.1779]

.............................................................................................................................................

BTW I really hope society channels money for research & aid. والباقيات الصالحات [Q18:46]
An engagement ring donated to raise funds, launched the very first appeal for Marie Curie Memorial Foundation − a charity dedicated to alleviating suffering from cancer. [web] الحمد لله

A fun birthday card ❀ it's twin

So what's up. I'm spring cleaning. Wishing to be prepared for Ramadhan. إن شاء الله

Yes this past week I've been living a life with very little internet... moving & doing things... & moving... I wish I have special people in my real life, bcoz that's the best way of forming relationships. So much sometimes I wonder, if Bedouins have closer human bonds than social networks. ترى المؤمنين في تراحمهم وتوادهم وتعاطفهم كمثل الجسد [SB8.73.40] (◠v◠)

Anyway... during Ramadhan, I love that people get together. I personally prefer the getting together & visiting in Ramadhan as the month is very special. Honestly, I only learn about this when I saw how Arabs celebrate Ramadhan. I wish I can put up lights in the home & stuffs.

Welcome
Peace be upon you
