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

Sweet Home

Posted By Snow at 1/21/2013 3 comments
So, I wonder if we could build a good home for everyone. I thought of adobe houses [wiki] & destiny brought me to Hassan Fathy. [web] Apparently he is Egypt's best architect since Imhotep. (0 - 0)

Anyway check out my floor plan! (◠v◠)v Can we do this at good cost for the poor? وفي أموالهم حق للسائل والمحروم [Q51:19] Is it like moulding clay (or other material) into lego-like bricks to build a house?

BTW, the lego is how they plan to build the tallest buiding in 90 days. [ref] Yeah, totally! Why don't construction companies do that. Share lego block parts of a home ready to install or remove. It'll be like the IKEA of the construction industry, isn't it? Hmm...


Can building the home be like assembling an IKEA furniture?

Israelite

The Trails of Prophet Abraham and the Israelite

1 Prophet Abraham [QA] left his homeland Ur and settled in Hebron. [Q21:71] Blessed by Allah SWT as the Father of the Prophets, فقد آتينا آل إبراهيم الكتاب والحكمة [Q4:54 | lineage] his sons:

Prophet Ishmael [QA] from his wife Hajar fathered the Ishmaelite
Prophet Isaac [QA] from his wife Sarah fathered the Israelite
2 By Allah's SWT command, Prophet Abraham left his wife Hajar & baby son Prophet Ishmael in Mecca. But he still visited them. It was Prophet Abraham & Prophet Ishmael who built the Kaaba — it is the first House of worship for Allah SWT. إن أول بيت وضع للناس للذي ببكة [Q3:96-97]
3 Prophet Isaac inherited the legacy of Prophet Abraham. He fathered Prophet Jacob . [QA] & Prophet Jacob (or known as Israel), fathered the 12 sons of Israel. But due to sibling envy, one of his sons, Prophet Joseph [QA] was cast away. At a tender age, Prophet Joseph became a slave boy in Egypt, but he rose to high rank as a royal trustee. Then, a famine brought the brothers to seek aid in Egypt, & the family were reunited. Prophet Joseph welcomed his family into Egypt.
4 But after generations passed, an evil Pharaoh ruled, he persecuted the Israelite. Allah SWT sent Prophet Moses [QA] & Prophet Aaron to invite the Pharaoh towards the truth, as well as to deliver the Israelite. Finally, they exodus out of Egypt to the Sinai. The persecutions were a great trial, & they were blessed to receive the Covenant from Allah SWT at the Sinai [QA]. ولقد أخذ الله ميثاق بني إسرائيل [Q5:12], ولقد آتينا بني إسرائيل الكتاب والحكم والنبوة [Q45:16]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

ونريد أن نمن على الذين استضعفوا في الأرض ونجعلهم أئمة ونجعلهم الوارثين
And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors. [Holy Quran 28:5]

وأورثنا القوم الذين كانوا يستضعفون مشارق الأرض ومغاربها التي باركنا فيها
... وتمت كلمة ربك الحسنى على بني إسرائيل بما صبروا
And We caused the people who had been oppressed to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which We had blessed. And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel, because of what they had patiently endured ... [Partial Holy Quran 7:137]
5 The Israelite reached the Promised Land. But some refused to enter it with Prophet Moses, so they were forbidden from it — they wandered in desert for forty years. [QA] Then, the Israelite were driven out from their homes & families, so they asked for a king to lead them in the face of war. Allah SWT chose Saul [QA] as the first king of Israelite — led by Saul, they defeated Goliath. Then, Allah SWT blessed Prophet David [QA] as king. When his son Prophet Solomon [QA] inherited him, Allah SWT blessed his kingdom with so much magnificence, it is known as the kingdom like no other. ملكا لا ينبغي لأحد [Q38:35] Prophet Solomon built the First Temple of Jerusalem. [1 Kings 8]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

... وقطعناهم في الأرض أمما
And We divided them throughout the earth into nations ... [Q7:168]

فإذا جاء وعد الآخرة جئنا بكم لفيفا ...
... when the final and the last promise comes near, We shall bring you altogether as mixed crowd. [Q17:104]

אנכי מצוה והנעובכל הגוים ...
... את בית ישראל כאשר ינוע בכברה
... I will shake the people of Israel among all the nations as grain is shaken in a sieve ... [Amos 9:8-9] and Genesis 28:14 | Micah 5:7
But after Prophet Solomon passed away, the Israelite divided & broke the Covenant. [Micah 3, 2 Kings 18:11-12, Leviticus 26:14-17] The Land divided into the Kingdom of Israel (the 10 tribes e.g Samaritans) & the Kingdom of Judah (the Jews).


Then Israel fell to the Assyrians — and the 10 tribes were exiled, they became the 10 Lost Tribes. While Judah fell to the Babylons — and the Jews were exiled as well. The Israelite spread across the world.

When the Babylons destroyed the First Temple of Jerusalem & the Ark of Covenant was lost — it was a great disaster for the Israelite.
תשעה באב
Tisha B'Av

They grieved for the destruction of the Temple.
......................................................................................................................................

Still, a group called Samaritans survived & remained in the region.

Then, from the East, came Cyrus the Great of Persia who allowed the Jews to return from exile & the Second Temple of Jerusalem was rebuilt. Then from the West, came Alexander the Great and Greek culture spread across the region. Some Jews became hellenized, even the Old Testament was translated into Greek (Septuagint).

When the Romans ruled, this era saw Herod commissioning the Second Temple's grand expansion. This was the Temple Prophet Jesus [QA] came to — with Prophet Zachariah [QA], Prophet John [QA] & his mother, the Virgin Mary. [QA]

Some believed in Prophet Jesus, some didn't. So they divided again — into Jews & Christians. Then, the Romans destroyed the Second Temple & exiled them. Again, they grieved for the Temple's destruction. فإذا جاء وعد الآخرة ليسوءوا وجوهكم وليدخلوا المسجد كما دخلوه أول مرة وليتبروا ما علوا تتبيرا [Q17:4-7 | QA]

& till this day, they pray for the Third Temple.

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم
