Being Muslim

Posted By Snow at 5/19/2013 2 comments
I don't really know if I can say this beautifully. Still... I think being muslim is the most beautiful thing ever. Through this journey called life — in hardship or in ease — a muslims knows he/she is never alone. Allah SWT is Most Merciful, always guiding to righteousness. & Allah SWT is always near, Most Watching, Most Knowing, Most Compassionate to us.

I wish mankind feels how great Allah SWT's mercy is to us. In our life & in our death. When you feel the sweetness of faith, you will not want to ever depart from it.
............................................................................................

With that in the heart, so what is the life of a muslim. Fine... it's not full of sea splitting moments. Muslims live somewhat like any other person. We eat, drink, marry. It's just, in Islam, this world is only for mankind to do good deeds as much as we can before we die. Only in the hereafter, that we will receive our book of deeds, hopefully it is beautifully written, & rewarded. فأما من أوتي كتابه بيمينه فيقول هاؤم اقرءوا كتابيه [Q69:19] The life of this world, is only a short journey.

So. How do muslims live in this short journey? OK, maybe the daily routine is like this:


& I think I should do these until I die. (◠v◠) Yes, the day is filled with prayers. & work. Of course we have family & friends fun time in between. Then in the month of Ramadhan, we fast. We also pay zakat (somewhat like charitable taxes) every year. & we perform hajj in Mecca once in a lifetime.

Work. As mentioned, when we do something, it is written in our book of deeds. So, perhaps some consider that acts can be classified as either "worldly deeds" (e.g: luxury vacation) or "hereafter deeds" (e.g: feed orphans). Still, I think there are many deeds that we must do simply to support our life in this world. We need food, clothes, shelter, medicine etc — it does not come magically. It needs work. ولا تنس نصيبك من الدنيا [Q28:77]

So... please permit me to say this. While "hereafter works" are maybe associated with scholars of Islam, with some muslims becoming highly respected for their Islamic knowledge. Still, the rest of the muslims are also dedicating their life for Allah SWT in other lines of work. Sometimes, with more struggle & danger.

E.g: a farmer when he toiled hard to feed the nation, a construction worker with his exhaustion carrying bars & cement to build infrastructures, defense force with their life crime fighting, or healthcare workers during dangerous outbreaks.

If they're sincere & remembers Allah SWT — it is righteousness.
فإذا قضيت الصلاة فانتشروا في الأرض وابتغوا من فضل الله [Q62:10 | QA]

If we look back, Prophet Muhammad , Lady Khadija, Caliph Abu Bakar, Caliph Uthman themselves were merchants. Perhaps honest traders who gives good services to the nation are not usually associated with piety, but I think it is righteousness. ماشاء الله

Of course, seeking the knowledge is important. Still, the earliest muslims at the time of the Prophet were learning Islam only after the revelation came to them later in life. So it's not too late for anyone! & when Allah SWT blesses someone with guidance, it will reach him either way. إن شاء الله

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

Earth : In The Beginning

This theory is meant to be verified

The theory — is it possible for the Earth to be formed like this:

 1  Gravity pulled dust, rocks & ice. This is the standard theory. [ref NG] The difference is only the added ice in the mixture. وهي دخان فقال لها وللأرض ائتيا [Q41:11]
 2  The early ice were vaporized by the hot core, forming clouds & the atmosphere. This atmosphere gradually cooled the outer layers of the Earth as the planet grew bigger.
 3  The heavier clouds rained fresh water & snow. يزجي سحابا [Q24:43] The water seeped underground & snow were covered by more dust & rocks. ماؤكم غورا [Q67:30] This surface became the Earth's crust.
 4  The inner hot core pressured the underground water to break the Earth's crust. Salt water spring out to become the ocean & clouds rained fresh water. هذا عذب فرات وهذا ملح أجاج [Q25:53] Underground movements create low & high lands. تمر مر السحاب [Q27:88] Nice temperature grew vegetation. يخرج الحي من الميت [Q6:95 | Q50:7]

So, did water arrive through ice → vapor → clouds → rain, snow?
With water, Earth is alive. Then it mass extinct & revived again | timeline


After the extinction of the Permians and Dinosaurs
the Earth is now revived with humans

Our body is made from the Earth من طين [Q32:7-9]
We are made of stone & iron حجارة أو حديدا [Q17:50]

A beautiful destiny ماشاء الله
Mesut Kurtis was born in Macedonia to a family of Turkish origin

I also found the Khazarian Hypothesis — suggesting eastern European Jews are of mix ancestries, with many descending from the Khazars (Turkic clans in the Caucasus) who converted to Judaism in the 8th century. A genetic study by Eran Elhaik, published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution, supported this. [AFP | GBAE] والله أعلم
