If The God isn’t real…?

Answer to If God isn’t real, then what would explain the balance of life and the miracles and coincidences that occur in life? by Hope Williams https://www.quora.com/If-God-isn-t-real-then-what-would-explain-the-balance-of-life-and-the-miracles-and-coincidences-that-occur-in-life/answer/Hope-Williams-150?ch=99&share=26cd1b3a&srid=pNPgO

Quora Q and A: The Most Merciful

He is called upon by many names in the various languages.

He has 99 Names and if translated, sounds different, of course.

But we must call Him by The Names He has Named Himself and He says to call on Him by any of them (Quran 59:22-24)

Jehovah, ie, The Almighty, God, Supreme Being, etc. is Hebrew.

Just as Allah, ie, The God is Arabic.

Al Haqq, The Truth

Ar Rah’man, The Most Merciful. Etc.

When one translates The God’s Names into English, for example, it takes on many definitions.

So it is better to call Him by His rightful Names with the correct meanings in the languages He sent them in, ie, like Hebrew and Aramaic and Arabic.

These languages are those spoken by The Prophets.

There might be other languages, as there were many Prophets sent to many different people, but after Prophet Abraham, The Prophets came through his jeans.

And their languages were the 3 mentioned above.

So using any of those languages to call Him by His Rightful Names is okay.

Though one can call on Him by His Rightful Names if translated into another language, but it doesn’t give the true due exaltedness,, praise, glorification, honor, etc. due to Him and may distort the meanings.

Example: Ar Rah’man, The Most Merciful, has a deep and beautiful meaning. One being the womb.

Now, not understanding the richness of the Arabic language, “the womb” might through one for a loop at first. But when understood, the beauty is wonderful.

When a mother, any mother of any species are in protective mode and would risk life and limb to protect what’s in her womb.

Careful where she walks, eats, sits, wears, even the people she is around, protecting what her baby may hear.

Sounds extreme, but only a pregnant woman can understand it fully.

Even animals, an alligator because so gentle and merciful. Picking up her eggs ever so gently as not to harm them. Placing them ever so gently and walking as not to crush them.

Rabbits nurse, then, stay a distance from the nest on guard.

One sees a pregnant woman protecting her belly.

Keeping from bumbling into things like a chair as she passes by.

The womb is also a protective dwelling.

Nurishing the baby.

Keeping it warm and safe.

The baby feels the direct love of the mother.

It feels safe and secure.

A true bond develops.

That is Ar Rah’man.

His Mercy is all that and more.

Even to those who disbelieve and reject Him, for they get watered by the same water, ie, rain.

They breathe the air He provides.

Eats from the produce He provides.

Enjoys the beauty and smell of the flowers He provides.

And even answers the prayer when they are in distress, for even an atheist finds God when their life is threatened.

So, Ar Rah’man is a deeper meaning than most know and understand.

This is why it is best to say it in the language He sent it in. It holds much more weight and gives Him His proper due.

Where does the sun go when it sets?

The explanation of where the sun goes:

(Narrated Abu Dharr: The Prophet asked me at sunset, “Do you know where the sun goes (at the time of sunset)?” I replied, “The God and His Messenger know better.” He said, “It goes (i.e. travels) till it prostrates Itself underneath The Throne and takes the permission to rise again, and it is permitted and then (a time will come when) it will be about to prostrate itself but its prostration will not be accepted, and it will ask permission to go on its course but it will not be permitted, but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west. And that is the interpretation of the Statement of The God: “And the sun is quickly proceeding towards its destination. That is the designing of The All-Mighty, The All-Knowing. “) (36.38)
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Hadith 421)

(In a narration, again from Sayyidina Abu Dharr, there appear the additional words to the effect:

“I asked the Prophet about the Statement of Allah: — ‘And the sun is quickly proceeding towards its destination. That is the designing of The All-Mighty, The All-Knowing ‘ (36.38) He said, ‘Its course is underneath “Allah’s Throne.’”) (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Hadith 327)

Following is the explanation given (tafsir) to Qur’an 36:38.[1]
(Surah Ya Seen, Verse 38:)
وَالشَّمْسُ تَجْرِي لِمُسْتَقَرٍّ لَّهَا ذَٰلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ

(And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it; that is the ordinance of The Mighty, The Knowing.)

Quora Q and A: “Good deeds”

There are many versions of the Bible to date. They vary in word, teaching and belief, so you would have to mention which version and which religious sect you are referring to, Mormon, Jehovah witness, Catholic, born again, etc.

But The Last of The God’s Revelations, which we are supposed to go by for it is The Completion of what He sent, it informs us that Heaven and Paradise are separate.

Heaven has seven levels, the nearest, lowest level is what we see above us.

The God, through His Revelations and Prophets, inform us that The different Prophets are on the various levels of heaven, waiting for The Day of Resurrection, there is no mention, to my knowledge, that there are others in heaven.

As for Paradise, there are also, many levels and many gates that one can enter through.

That is part of The Mercy of The God, there is no one way to enter Paradise.

The good that disbelievers do, is only rewarded in this life, that is also part of The Mercy of The God, that though they disbelieve in Him, reject Him, His Revelations and Prophets, He still rewards the good. But they will have no share in the Hereafter.

As for believers, the good done here earns rewards in this life, the grave, and in the Hereafter.

Prophet Muhammad said to not belittle any good deed, a smile, removing something dangerous from the road or walkway, Glorifing The God, Praising The God, Exalting The God, are all acts of charity, so no one can claim they have nothing to give.

One good deed done sincerely, can earn one Paradise.

One good word can earn one Paradise.

It is by The Mercy of The God people will enter Paradise, because we can never do enough that equals the reward of Paradise.

Prophet Muhammad said: (“do deeds, you will find easy those deeds that lead you to your destined place.”) (Bukhari)

A person can go their whole life doing the deeds of the people of the fire, till they are a foot away from entering it, but then what is written for them takes over and they begin to do the deeds of the people of Paradise till they enter Paradise.

And vise versa, one can do the deeds of the people of the Paradise, till they are about a foot away from entering it, but then what is written takes over and they begin to do the deeds of the people of the fire till they enter it.

So none should be proud of the good they do, nor mock others who give what one might feel is not good enough. Nor should one despair because of their weaknesses in deeds that they are doomed.

There is a middle ground, hope, humbleness, sincerity, etc. being the key.

Prophet Muhammad said to do good as much as you can.

And a Hadith that I love to qoute, is that there was a prostitute who got some water from a well to satisfy her thirst and on seeing a dog licking the sand out of thirst, she gave it water, The God forgave her and granted her Paradise.

And there is a story about an Abbot, a very religious man named Barsisa, who kept to him self away from the world and devoted to worship.

(There were brothers who were drafted for war. They had a sister, back then, they were very, very protective of women. So they didn’t want to live her alone. So they were informed to live her with that religious man. He at first, refused. Then, satan whispered to his inner self: “if you don’t take care of her, who will? She may end up with someone with I’ll intensions.” So Barsisa followed the encouragement of satan. But he said: “I will stay in my house and she can stay in a separate addition on his property. He doesn’t even want to see her. Very religious man. He would put her food and sit it outside the door. satan whispers to him: “someone can see her and you know what will happen. You should take the food and leave it outside her door.” So he did that for a while. Then, satan whispered again: “she’s all alone. No one to talk too. Just sit outside the door and talk to her. Or she might leave.” Once again, he followed the encouragement from satan and did that for a while. Then, satan whispered again: “just go spend a little time with her. She’s all alone in there. Just give her some company. He did so and they got closer and closer till he fornicated with her. She got pregnant and delivered a baby. satan whispered: “do you know what you have done?! Her brothers will kill you! You know what you should do? Kill the baby.” And he did. Then, satan whispered: “do you think she will keep silent? You know what you should do? Kill her too.” And he did. And barried them both under a rock. The brothers came, Barsisa told them she got ill and died and she is barried in such and such place. The brothers made prayer for her and left. satan came to each of them in a dream. Saying: “do you believe Barsisa? It’s a lie. He committed fornication with her and killed her and her child. The proof is, she’s not barried where he said, but she is barried such and such place under a rock.” One brother told the others his dream, they said they had the same dream, it must be true. So they uncovered the grave where Barsisa told them and found nothing. Then, they went to the place that was in the dream and found both, their sister and her child. They captured Barsisa and dragged him to the king. When he was about to be executed, satan came in a physical form and said: “Barsisa, do you know who I am? I am satan, the one who caused you all this mess and I am the only one who can save you.” Barsisa said: “please save me!” satan said: “prostrate to me.” He did. satan said: “thank you very much.” And then, left. Soon after, Barsisa was hung. And his last deed was worship, prostration to satan.”

Why do I mention these two things?

To show that we should not be confident in our “righteousness” and never let our guard down.

satan can encourage that which appears to be a good deed, but one should know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses.

Example:

One may want children. Not having any of their own, they adopt. Not realizing what it takes to be a parent, how it can completely change your life. Though it is a very, very good deed, that can earn one a high level in Paradise, taking care of an orphan. But not being a very patient person, not doing research on parenting, not preparing for a child, like work schedule, child proofing the house, finding a good babysitter, not financially prepared, etc. That good act can turn very ugly. That child may become like a burden. Interfering with one’s me time. Going out with friends. Child gets sick and one needs to take off from work, causing one to loose their job. One can grow to resent the child, even abuse it.

So unlike Barsisa, who relied on his level of “righteousness” and felling to recognize satan’s whisperings, and even after committing the sin, failed to turn to The God in repentance, he chose to beg satan which is the one sin The God does not forgive if one dies in that state of worshiping another other than Him. One should know themselves and recognize their strengths and weaknesses.

So where the good deed of the “sinner” granted her Paradise, the good deed of the “righteous” caused him the fire.

So we must be on our guard and keep our intention pure. And know ourselves.

Example:

)One of the companions of Prophet Muhammad gave every dime he had in charity and The Prophet praised that act by saying that whatever that companion did thereafter will not harm him. Meaning, that one act granted him Forgiveness and Paradise, so no matter what wrong he did, he already had his place in Paradise.)

This doesn’t mean give charity and then do deliberate wrong doing, then give much, then, deliberately do wrong. Giving in charity, though washes away sins, The God judges by intent.

(Then, another companion came and did the same, but Prophet Muhammad told him to keep his property.)

Why?

The first companion was a business man who prospers and wealth is not heard for him to earn and he was patient, able to deal without for a while.

Whereas the other man, Prophet Muhammad told him that he would give all his wealth and then come the next day asking for charity. He was not one who can deal without.

So knowing yourself and what is within your capability is important. And The God commands to give in charity after taking care of one’s needs and what remains thereafter, can be use for charity.

Can I know God personally?

Answer to Can I know God personally? by Hope Williams https://www.quora.com/Can-I-know-God-personally/answer/Hope-Williams-150?ch=99&share=c5f02c6a&srid=pNPgO

Yes.

We can have a personal relationship with Him.

He took Abraham as a intimate, close friend, so much so, that all the rest of The Prophets are from Abraham’s descendants.

When He befriends someone, and loves them, He makes it known to Angel Gabriel and he announces it to the others that The God loves so and so, so love so and so also. and they love them and they are loved by the people on earth.

When He befriends someone, male or female, young or old, there’s nothing He won’t do for them.

His Mercy and Bounties are without limit.

Example: there was a man who committed 99 murders.

He wanted to repent.

So he went around asking different religious people can he be forgiven? They replied no.

So he killed them. But he still wanted to repent.

So the last person he asked told him that who can keep you from The God’s forgiveness? But the man told him he had to leave that town and search for good people to be around.

And while traveling, he died before he got where he was going.

The Angels of death argued as to which of them takes his soul, The Angel of mercy or of punishment.

One saying the man didn’t repent, the other saying he was on his way.

While arguing, The God sent another Angel to settle it by telling them that if his body is nearer to the town he left, then The Angel of punishment takes him. If his body was nearer to the town he was going to, then The Angel of mercy takes him.

The God moved the earth so that his body was nearer to the town he was headed for and thus The Angel of mercy took him.

Why quote this hadith?

Because if that is what The God would do for a murderer who sincerely wanted to repent, what would He do for one He has befriended?

why do people still believe in God?

https://www.quora.com/With-so-much-evidence-out-there-that-disputes-God-why-do-people-still-believe-in-God/answer/Hope-Williams-150?ch=99&share=2ba033bb&srid=pNPgO

Hope Williams
Hope Williams, studied Religion

Because there is no evidence that disproves His existence, only theory, speculation, etc. But:

Why do people still believe in God?

The evidence of His existence is clear.

And those whom He guides have no doubts.

There has always been and always will be those who will try to disprove His existence by theorizing that all of this came about without intelligence, but it takes intelligence to mimmic life, like robots, designed after humans, cameras, designed after the eyes of humans, planes, designed after birds, etc. So there’s no evidence that there is no God, but just by trying to mimic life and failing, is the very proof that there is A God.

A human is far more complex than a robot, so how can one need intelligence to come about but not the other?

[On the authority of Abu Hurayrah, who said that The Prophet said: The God The Almighty said: I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; & if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a cubit, & if he draws near to Me a cubit, I draw near to him a fathom. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed. It was related by al-Buhkari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi & Ibn-Majah).]

[On the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari from The Prophet is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord (may He be glorified) is that He said: O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself & have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me & I shall guide you, O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me & I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me & I shall clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night & by day, & I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness of Me & I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, & will not attain benefitting Me so as to benefit Me. O My servants, were the first of you & the last of you, the human of you & the jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you & the last of you, the human of you & the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My Kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you & the last of you, the human of you & the jinn of you to rise up in one place & make a request of Me, & were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more that a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you & then recompense you for, so let him who finds good, praise The God, & let him who finds other than that, blame no one but himself. It was related by Muslim (also by at-Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah).]

[On the authority of Abu Hurayrah, who said that The Messenger of The God said: The God (mighty & sublime be He) will say on The Day of Resurrection: O son of Adam, I fell ill & you visited Me not. He will say: O Lord, & how should I visit You when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: Did you not know that My servant So-&-so had fallen ill & you visited him not? Did you not know that had you visited him you would have found Me with him? O son of Adam, I asked you for food & you fed Me not. He will say: O Lord, & how should I feed You when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: Did you not know that My servant So-&-so asked you for food & you fed him not? Did you not know that had you fed him you would surely have found that (the reward for doing so) with Me? O son of Adam, I asked you to give Me to drink & you gave Me not to drink. He will say: O Lord, how should I give You to drink when You are the Lord of the worlds? He will say: My servant So-&-so asked you to give him to drink & you gave him not to drink. Had you given him to drink you would have surely found that with Me. It was related by Muslim.]

[On the authority of Abu Hurayrah, who said that the Messenger of The God (ﷺ) said: The God (mighty & sublime be He) said: Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, & My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes & his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, & were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death & I hate hurting him. It was related by al-Bukhari.]

Night Blessings

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet of The God, said, “Our Lord descends to the lowest heaven in the last third of every night, and He says: Who is calling upon me that I may answer him? Who is asking from me that I may give him? Who is seeking My forgiveness that I may forgive him?”

The God & there is no God but He, Who has no partner, created us with a natural “fitrah.” I.e. belief in Him, but it is parents that change that to whatever it is they believe/don’t believe.

Then, later in life other things change that. But The God chooses to guide whom He Wills. And because He is guiding them, they don’t need to see to believe. His puts the belief, faith, love, fear, etc. for & of Him in their hearts.

He opens their eyes to His Creations that give them enough of a picture of His Greatness, that when they really see Him on The Day of Resurrection, it will be the greatest gift.

Example: please forgive me if you have read some of my previous answers/comments & know this already, but I love to quote it. Lets first read what The God says about Himself:

(The God is The Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Light is as (if there were) a niche and within it a lamp, the lamp is in glass, the glass as it were a brilliant star, lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east (i.e. neither it gets sun-rays only in the morning) nor of the west (i.e. nor it gets sun-rays only in the afternoon, but it is exposed to the sun all day long), whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it. Light upon Light! The God guides to His Light whom He wills. And The God sets forth parables for mankind, and The God is All-Knower of everything.) (Quran 24:35)

2. (The God ! There is no god but He, The Ever Living, The One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is The Most High, The Most Great.) (Quran 2:255)

3. (Say: He is The God , The One!The God , The Eternal, Absolute;”He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.) (Quran 112:1-4)

4. (No vision can grasp Him, but His Grasp is over all vision. He is The Most Subtle and Courteous, Well-Acquainted with all things.) (Quran 6:103)

I love painting a picture, but this one will make your brain bleed, lol.

He says His “Throne” extends over the heavens & the earth. We look like ants if one is looking down from a high enough building. We disappear from view if one looks down from a plane high enough. Everything disappears from view if one looks at the earth from the moon. The earth can fit 1000 times into Jupiter. And earth, the moon & Jupiter disappear from view the further into space one goes & looks back. That’s just in this galaxy. But there are galaxies within galaxies within galaxies. And His Tyrone “EXTENDS” over it all.

His Light, He gives an example of it. We can’t even look directly at the sun long enough without causing damage. So it is understandable that the mountain crumbled to dust when Moses asked to see Him:

(And when Moses came at the time and place appointed by Us, and his Lord spoke to him, he said: “O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You.” The God said: “You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me.” So when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He made it collapse to dust, and Moses fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: “Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers.”) (Quran 7:143)

There is so much more in The Holy Quran & The Sunnah. The God completed The Religion of Prophet Abraham, sent His Last Prophet & Last Revelation. That is why it is so rich with information. Jesus said that the Comforter after him would guide us into all truths & we have more information about The God, His Prophets, His Revelations, & so much more. Because it is till The Day of Resurrection, so everything mankind will need is therein.

Think

The God asks do they not think carefully about The Quran? Had it been from other than The God, they would have found therein much contradictions. – It is A Book that confirms what came before it, The Torah of Moses & The Gospel of Jesus, He sent them all. – Do they not think deeply about the heavens & the earth? – think deeply about their own creation (how no two fingerprints are alike)? – The God mentions “think deeply.” “ponder.” “reflect.” “remember.” – The Proof that The Quran is from The God, is The Quran itself. It along with what is revealed therein are miracles.

quora question

image

He is able to listen & He Listens to even the deepest secrets that our mind & hearts dear not reveal to others. How? He Created us, so He knows us better than we know ourselves. even parents don’t know their child in that same way.

He begets not nor was He begotten & there is none like unto Him. no eye has seen Him. His Throne extends over the heavens & the earth. the heavens which are seven levels, the nearest to us is what we see above us, He decorated the lower heaven with stars & the sun & the moon. There are galaxies within galaxies & His Throne extends over it all.

The One Intelligent enough to create all this, the universe & all within it, including mankind & is maintaining it all, is surely Intelligent enough to hear, see, know everything within His Kingdom.

He does not need to transform Himself into the very thing He Created, i.e. man, who is less than a speck of dust in size, who disappears from view if one looks down from an airplane high enough, who disappear along with everything else on earth if one looks at earth from the moon, which the earth fits 1000 times into Jupiter, which earth, the moon & Jupiter disappear from view if looked for from deep enough in space, galaxies within galaxies, One Intelligent enough to created it all does not need to come off His Mighty Throne of which is a size immeasurable, to become His Creation, that is less than an atom in size, go through the womb of His Creation, to forgive us or teach us anything, only to fail & have to try again in a second coming.

so, I don’t know what god you believe in, but I believe in The God of Jesus & every Prophet He sent from Noah to Muhammad.

The God Who is The All Knowing, The All Seeing, The All Hearing, The One well acquainted with His Creation.

Whose Throne extends over the heavens & the earth. Who feels no fatigue in guarding & preserving them.

Who dies not.

Who is The First & The Last.

The Ever Living.

Who begets not nor was He begotten & there is none like unto Him.

This is The God that Jesus believes in & worships Him, gladly.

This is The Same God of Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Elijah, John the baptist, Jacob, Job, Muhammad, etc.

This is The God Muslims believe in & submit to as did all His Prophets & those that believed with them.

Confusion

It doesn’t. Not sound ahadith.

The Holy Quran has not nor can it ever be tampered with. The Arabic of The Holy Quran today is the exact words revealed over 1400years ago.

But as for ahadith, people can, have & do lie or give mistaking or false information & attribute it to Prophet Muhammad. But those who lie on him knowingly are cursed.

This is why ahadith have to be confirmed to be sound & proven that it came from Prophet Muhammad.

So, if such a case arises where a Hadith contradicts The Holy Quran, then it is not a sound hadith. For Prophet Muhammad was the walking, talking, living Quran. He did everything he was commanded, conveyed everything he was taught by Angel Gabriel. Then he taught it to his followers.

Contradictions is one of the main ways of telling The Truth from falsehood. One of the main ways we know what parts of the 350 versions of the bible are true. Why? Because The Truth doesn’t contradict itself nor does The God or those whom He sent.

So, even though people keep tampering with the Bible till there are 350 versions, and so called new information, like Jesus had a brother, creeps in, the truth, how ever little of it remains, will contradict with the words of men:

(Do they not then consider The Qur’an carefully? Had it been from other than The God, they would surely have found therein much contradictions.) (Quran 4:82)

So The God is letting us know that whatever is not from Him, will contradict. This is why the versions of the Bibles contradict, even contradict within the same version & why the different beliefs surrounding these 350 versions contradict. If more people read for themselves & not blindly take the word of others because they appear more righteous & more learned, they will see the contradictions themselves & see that The God says, He is not a God of confusion (1 Corinthians 14), so, why all the confusion? So you can see how that biblical verse is in agreement with The Holy Quranic verse above (Quran 4:82)

And the only thing that differs are the laws over the centuries in between Prophets because many earned certain hardships do to their constant rebelliousness. But when they believe in The Last of The God’s Prophets & His Last Revelation, it removes those burdens & difficulties off them & they will be forgiven all their past sins.

Forgiveness

Hadith Qudsi 33

A servant [of The God’s] committed a sin & said: “O The God, forgive me my sin.” And He (glorified & exalted be He) said: “My servant has committed a sin & has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins & punishes for them.” Then he sinned again & said: “O Lord, forgive me my sin.” And He (glorified & exalted be He) said: “My servant has committed a sin & has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins & punishes for them.” Then he sinned again & said: “O Lord, forgive me my sin.” And He (glorified & exalted be He) said: “My servant has committed a sin & has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins & punishes for sins. Do what you wish, for I have forgiven you.”

Best protection known to man!

It can be a cold world. Protect yourself & family, friends & pets!
Best protection known to man!

Q&A on quora:

Yes. Many. Plus, you can seek The God’s Refuge with you own words. Seek refuge from satan & his helpers, then mention the name of the person/s you want refuge from. It’s best & more blessings using The Prophet’s supplications, here are a few & suggest downloading the app that has these supplications & more (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.readismed.hisnulmuslim):

Sunrise/sunset:

(We have entered the morning (evening) & with it all dominion is The God’s. Praise is to The God. None has the right to be worshiped but The God alone, Who has no partner. To The God belongs the dominion, & to Him is the praise & He is Able to do all things. My Lord, I ask You for the goodness of this day & of the days that come after it, & I seek refuge in You from the evil of this day & of the days that come after it. My Lord, I seek refuge in You from laziness & helpless old age. My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the punishment of Hell-fire, & from the punishment of the grave. (Recite in the bracket in the evening.) (Bukhari)

Before going to sleep/bed:

(The God! There is no God but He, the Ever Living, the One Who sustains & protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens & whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them in this world, & what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never encompass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Throne extends over the heavens & the earth, & He feels no fatigue in guarding & preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.(Whoever reads this when he lies down to sleep will have a guardian from The God remain with him & satan will not be able to come near him until he rises in the morning.) (Bukhari)

(O The God! Lord of the Seven heavens & Lord of the Magnificent Throne. Our Lord & the Lord of everything. Splitter of the grain & the date-stone, Revealer of the Torah & the Gospel& the Qur’an, I seek refuge in You from the evil of everything that You shall seize by the forelock. O The God You are the First & nothing has come before you, & You are the Last, & nothing may come after You. You are the Most High, nothing is above You & You are the Most Near & nothing is nearer than You. Remove our debts from us & enrich us against poverty.) (Bukhari)

(With Your Name my Lord, I lay myself down & with Your Name I rise. And if my soul You take, have mercy on it, & if You send it back then protect it as You protect Your righteous slaves.(If any of you rises from his bed & later returns to it, let him dust off his bed with his waist garment three times & mention The Name of The God, for he does not know what may have entered the bed after him, & when he lies down he should say: بِسْمِ اللَّهِ bismillah-in The Name of The God) (Bukhari)

(O The God, You have created my soul & You take it back. Unto You is its death & its life. If You give it life then protect it, & if You cause it to die then forgive it. O The God, I ask You for strength.) (Bukhari)

If you know someone wants to harm you/distress/sorrow, etc.:

(The God is sufficient for us & the best of those on whom to depend.) (Bukhari)

(O The God, suffice me against them however You wish.) (Bukhari)

(The God, Revealer of the Book, Swift to account, defeat the groups (of disbelievers). O The God, defeat them & shake them.) (Bukhari)

(O The God, I seek refuge in you from grief & sadness, from weakness & from laziness, from miserliness & from cowardice, from being overcome by debt & overpowered by men.) (Bukhari)

(There is none worthy of worship but The God the Mighty, the Forbearing. There is none worthy of worship but The God, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. There is none worthy of worship but The God, Lord of the heavens & Lord of the earth, & Lord of the Noble Throne.) (Bukhari)

SUPPLICATIONS-FORTRESS!
Muhammad said: (“you are in The Safest Place when you remember The God!”) (Bukhari)

SUPPLICATIONS! THE BEST WEAPON THERE IS! USE IT! IT’S A FORTRESS!

A Rainbow of Colors

O mankind! We (The God) have created you from a male & a female, & made you into nations & tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you with The God is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. love & fear of The God). Verily, The God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. (Quran 49:13 )

{Babies are not racist, this is taught:}

And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens & the earth, & the difference of your languages & colors. Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge. (Quran 30:22, )

{Animals are not racist:}

There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you. Nothing have we omitted from The Book, & they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end. (Quran 6:38)

{Racist are worst than animals:}

Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with The God are the deaf & the dumb, those who understand not. (Quran 8:22, )

{Don’t we look around & above us?}

A

nd whatsoever He has created for you on this earth of varying colors. Verily! In this is a sign for people who remember. (Quran 16:13, )

See you not that The God sends down water (rain) from the sky, & We (The God) produce therewith fruits of varying colors, & among the mountains are streaks white & red, of varying colors & (others) very black. (Quran 35:27, )

And of men & AdDawab (moving living creatures, beasts, etc.), & cattle, in like manner of various colors. It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear The God (don’t kill, oppress, harm, etc.). Verily, The God is All Mighty, Oft Forgiving. (Quran 35:28, )

See you not, that The God sends down water (rain) from the sky, & causes it to penetrate the earth, (& then makes it to spring up) as water-springs & afterward thereby produces crops of different colors, … Verily, in this, is a Reminder for men of understanding. (Quran 39:21)

{So why are people racist?}

… mutual jealousy,… (Quran 3:19, )

And the example of those who disbelieve, is as that of him who shouts to the (flock of sheep) that hears nothing but calls & cries. (They are) deaf, dumb & blind. So they do not understand. Quran 2:17)

{The KKK, skinheads, feel their racism is for the betterment of mankind, but:}

Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not. (Quran 2:12, )

And when it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “We are only peacemakers.” (Quran 2:11)

{But The God says:}

O ye who believe! … let not the hatred of some people in (once) shutting you out … lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help you one another in righteousness and piety, but help you not one another in sin and rancor: fear The God: for The God is strict in punishment. (Quran 5:2)

{The hate goes so deep that they fight against their own if that person even likes one from another race:}

So the Nafs (self) of the other (latter one) encouraged him & made fair-seeming to him the murder of his brother; he murdered him & became one of the losers. (Quran 5:30)

{But what did The God say:}

Because of that We (The God) ordained … that if anyone killed a person – it would be as if he killed all mankind, & if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, & signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly & exceeding beyond the limits set by The God by committing the major sins) in the land!. (Quran 5:32, )

{Haters teach hate, what did Muhammad teach?}

What were Muhammad’s “Real” last words?

In The Name of The God, The Compassionate, The Merciful
The Prophet Muhammad’s Last Sermon

This sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H.
in the ‘Uranah valley of Mount Arafat’ (in Mecca).
After praising, & thanking The God he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully & TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life & property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, & that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. THE GOD has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. The God has Judged that there shall be no interest & that all the interest due to Abbas ibn ‘Abd’al Muttalib (Prophet’s uncle) shall henceforth be waived…
Beware of satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under The God’s trust & with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed & clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well & be kind to them for they are your partners & committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship THE GOD, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, & give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.
All mankind is from Adam & Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety & good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim & that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely & willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.
Remember, one day you will appear before THE GOD & answer (for) your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, & understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN & my example, the SUNNAH & if you follow these you will never go astray.
All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others & those to others again; & may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O THE GOD, that I have conveyed your message to your people”

{Is The God racist?}

Verily, the Muslims (those who submit to The Will of The God) men and women, the believers men and women, the men and the women who are obedient (to The God), the men and women who are truthful (in their speech and deeds), the men and the women who are patient, the men and the women who are humble, the men and the women who give charity, the men and the women who observe fast, the men and the women who guard their chastity (from illegal sexual acts) and the men and the women who remember The God much with their hearts and tongues. The God has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise). (Quran 33:35, )

So that The God will punish the hypocrites, men and women, and the men and women who are AlMushrikun (disbelievers, sinful rebellious, etc. who do not repent). And The God will pardon (accept the repentance of) the true believers, men and women. And The God is Ever Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Quran 33:73, )

{And Thank The God that:}

And those who, before them, … & had adopted the Faith, love those who emigrate to them, & have no jealousy in their breasts for that which they have been given & give them (poor immigrants) preference over themselves, even though they were in need of that. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, such are they who will be the successful. (Quran 59:9, )

Forgiveness

Hadith Qudsi 34

O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me & ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done & I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky & were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth & were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great at it.

Tennessee?

He knows everything, He is The All Knowing, The All Seeing, The All Hearing, The All Powerful. These are just a few of His Names.

Ask yourself this, The One Capable of creating this universe & all that we know of & don’t know of, is there anything He doesn’t know?

It takes intelligence to create the Hubble scope, which captures images deep in space, how much more intelligence to create & maintain that space?

He says His Throne extends over the heavens & the earth, earth is non existing, I.e. can’t be seen, from deep in space, 1000 earths can fit in Jupiter, there are galaxies within galaxies, and His Throne extends over it all. Not even the same size, but “extends” over it.

Do we still think He doesn’t know what He Created? There would be no Tennessee without an earth & there would be no earth if He didn’t created it & maintain it.

Gardens of delight

Verily, those who believe (in The Oneness of The God) and do deeds of righteousness, their Lord will guide them through their Faith; under them will flow rivers in The Gardens of delight (Paradise). (Quran 10:9)

A Good Society

A good society is one where everyone knows their purpose & lives it. The God & there is no god but He, Who has no partners has created us for worship & in exchange for that worship, He rewards us in this life, in the grave & in the next life with Paradise, eternity of Happiness.
There have been “societies” that lived their purpose, but very few. The most famous of them that we know of is that of the children of Israel. The early years while Prophet Moses was among them. But people are weak & they rebelled right after The God saved them from pharaoh. The God showed them one of the greatest of miracles, parting the ocean so that they walked from one end to the other. Water raised up like a mountain on both sides of them. But they, once saved, created a calf made of gold & began to worship that. But The God is Most Forgiving. He forgives again & again. But that forgiveness benefitted them nothing. They rebelled more & more, became more arrogant with each generation, till they began killing their own Prophets, which were from among their own people. But basically, the “society” is “good” while The Prophets were among them. But, most go right back to the way things were before the coming of any of The Prophets. The first 3 generations, while Prophet Muhammad was among them, the next, then the next. But we as a whole are getting worse & worse with every new generation. But there are still a few who try their best to live as righteous as they can.
There can never be a “good” society, because what would make it “good” will be all of the people on the same page. Belief in The One God, The Lord & Creator of all. Worshipping Him as He has taught through His Prophets & Revelations. And why would that make for a “good” society? Because with the love & fear of our Creator, it governs our actions, we fight against ourselves to comply with what is His Will not our own. We would not kill, oppress, abuse, lie, cheat, hate, fornicate, drink, do drugs, rape, etc. Because with a whole society loving & fearing The God, following His Teachings:
Do not kill
Don’t be jealous
Don’t backbite
Don’t slander
Don’t give false witness
Don’t lie
Don’t cheat
Don’t oppress
Don’t force women into marriage nor prostitution
Stand by the will of the deceased
If one is going to divorce, part in kindness
Don’t fornicate
Don’t steal
Don’t commit adultery
Be generous to one’s neighbor
Free slaves
Raise orphans
Give much in charity

Would make us better individually, by putting into practice These commands, among others, which are the teachings of The God through His Prophets & Revelations. If we as a “society” lived by what The God has revealed, we would not have not one problem. Because He has given us a criterion by which to govern laws:

There would be no drunk drivers
School shootings
Pedophiles
Rapist
Murderers
Stealing
Terrorist
Young mothers who don’t know who the father/s of their children are
Playboys/players
No injustice in courts
Prejudice
Hatred

With the occasional few, but for the most part it would be crime free, why? Because with love & fear comes respect. We would love & fear The God, creating the utmost respect for Him & His Laws. With that in place & the fact that we know He Sees us, Hears us, knows what our inner selves whisper to us, He knows us in & out. So knowing that creates God Consciousness. Example: your parents have set rules, one of which is to come home straight from school. Bell rings, schools over, your friends want to hang out. You let them know you have to go straight home. They keep egging you on & you really want to go. But out of love, fear & respect for your parents, you fight that urge, turn down your friends & go home. And because you are such a devoted, loving & obeying child, they surprise you with a trip to Disney Land. The only difference between that example & that of us as servants of The God, is that though your parents couldn’t see what was happening after school, the peer pressure topped with your own desire to just disobey & go, The God can see us, we have no secrets. The parents could only reward you because of what they knew, you came home on time. But The God rewards beyond the act alone. For He knows & saw the battle, I.e. the peer pressure & the jihad against your own desire to disobey. He rewards if we think about doing evil but don’t. He rewards if we think about doing a good deed but didn’t. If only all of mankind knew The Greatness of The God & the immense reward for belief & worship, not only in this life, but in the grave & when resurrected & go on to live for eternity, all of mankind would gladly race to believe.

Beauty in this life compared to Paradise is unimaginable!

(The God said): “I have prepared for My righteous servants what no eye has seen & no ear has heard, nor has it occurred to human heart.” Thus recite if you wish: “And no soul knows what joy for them (the inhabitants of Paradise) has been kept hidden.” Hadith Qudsi 37

“No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do.” (Quran 32:17)

Shirk – The Unforgivable sin

Shirk (Islam)
Page issues

In Islam, shirk (Arabic: شرك‎ širk) is the sin of practicing idolatry or polytheism, i.e. the deification or worship of anyone or anything besides the singular God, i.e. Allah. Literally, it means ascribing or the establishment of “partners” placed beside God. It is the vice that is opposed to the virtue of Tawhid (monotheism).[1] Those who practice shirk are termed mushrikun.[2] Mushrikun (pl. of mushrik) are those who practice shirk, which literally means “association” and refers to accepting other gods and divinities alongside the god of the Muslims – Allah (as God’s “associates”).[3] In Islamic law shirk as a crime, can just be attributed to Muslims, since only a Muslim is legally responsible not to associate any partner to Allah.[4]

Within Islam, shirk is an unforgivable crime if it remains unpardoned before death: Allah may forgive any sin if one dies in that state except for committing shirk.[1][5]

The word širk comes from the Arabic root Š-R-K (ش ر ك), with the general meaning of “to share”.[6] In the context of the Quran, the particular sense of “sharing as an equal partner” is usually understood, so that polytheism means “attributing a partner to Allah”. In the Qur’an, shirk and the related word mušrikūn (مشركون)—those who commit shirk and plot against Islam—often refer to the enemies of Islam (as in verse 9.1–15).

God or satan?

I’ll answer like this, The God & there is no god but He, Who has no partners, is The One Who answers prayers. And since satan runs through mankind like their blood stream, & has been in our lives from the moment we are born, satan knows us & knows exactly what carrot to wave in front of us, & yes, he can hear the supplications we make to The God. But the cancelling out of either one of them, is in our hands. Meaning? One has to know the differences between them. For instance, one prays to The God for wealth, then the oppotunity arises for one to easily rob a bank. Has The God answered their prayer for wealth? The cancelling out is ethier one takes advantage of that opportunity, when they know very well The God has forbidden theft or one seeks refuge in The God from satan & his trickory, & then remain patient, trust in The God & hopeful that The God will present a lawful opportunity to earn money.

Scatter my ashes

A man sinned greatly against himself & when death came to him he charged his sons, saying: When I have died, burn me, then crush me & scatter [my ashes] into the sea, for, by The God, if my Lord takes possession of me, He will punish me in a manner in which He has punished no one [else]. So they did that to him. Then He (The God) said to the earth: Produce what you have taken & there he was! And He (The God) said to him: What induced you to do what you did? He (the man) said: Being afraid of You, O my Lord (or he said: Being frightened of You) & because of that He (The God) forgave him.

Hadith Qudsi 32

Explain the Bible verse

I would begin with:

Before I explain the verse, one needs to know that The God & there is no god but He, Who has no partners, sent many Prophets/Messengers, some with Revelations, others as reminders & reinforcement of The Revelations with no new verses. For example,
He sent Moses with The Torah, David with The Psalms, Abraham with Scrolls & Jesus with The Gospel.
However, they no longer exist in the pure form they were revealed. They, over time, have been rewritten, revised, updated & modernized, till now there are 350 versions of the Bible & almost as many belief systems surrounding them.

So, for the most part, The God’s Words & the words & teachings of His Prophets, no longer exist. This is why they are mostly the words of men, hence, the titles, “the gospel according to Matthew, Mark, etc.” There is no gospel according to The God nor according to Jesus. Nor in the language Jesus spoke, Aramaic.

So, the versions conflict & so do the many beliefs that surround them. So, depending on which version you have, the verse you are asking about, may differ & so will it’s meaning & belief surrounding it.

The different sects have different understandings & beliefs about Jesus. So, I can go through them all or just refer you to The God’s last Revelation, which He set a seal on it. It has not & can not be changed, it was revealed over 1400 years ago, 500 years after Jesus, which by then, many changes & beliefs arose surrounding Jesus.

The books of the new testament are written by pen writers who inquired about Jesus, the earliest 40 years after Jesus’s departure. So, it is mostly here say.

But Jesus & the many other Prophets, spoke of the coming of this sealed Book. The reason The God sealed it, is obvious from the above explanation of what happened with The Books entrusted to men.

So, it clarifies much of the confusion & misunderstandings that arose from the changes made by men & to fit what they believe it to mean. The God did not send 350 bibles with almost as many beliefs.

So, I can keep trying to explain man’s words & versions or give you what The God has sent, in its pure form, unchanged.

So after explaining all that, I would then leave it up to the person asking about the bible verse, what they would rather, to continue with whatever version they have or show them the accurate words of The God.

School shootings. It’s time to act.

I am so sorry for all the crime in the world that goes uncared after. My answer to your question is in parts:

1. It depends on whom the people are praying too, if they pray to other than The God Himself, The Creator & The Lord of all, that can be unanswered prayers.
2. Yes, we should, first, take it to The God & there is no god but Him, Who has no partners, Who begets not nor was He begotten & there is none like unto Him, for we need His Help & Protection.
3. Then, it is up to leadership to enforce laws. If this were an Islamic State, run by an Islamic leader, I.e. Khalifah, ruling by The God’s laws, this would not be happening, nor would suicide bombings, other murders, rapes, pedophilia, etc. For The God’s laws are severe in such cases when guilt is proven.
4. But the people don’t want The God’s laws, they don’t even worship Him as He Commands, nor love & fear Him as He should be.
5. The condition of this world is our own doing. He has been sending guidance since Noah. But people either, don’t believe, believe falsely, believe but don’t practise, fake belief, & the very few who believe, practise that belief in their lives & try to inform others, are in no power to do anything but pray in situations like these.

6. My personal prayer would be to pray for patience, strength, hope, guidance, justice for the innocent & their family & friends. Then, for The God to enforce justice. To give just dues. For it is not just the violators who are wrong, but it is the leaderships who are in positions to do something about all this, but don’t.

7. We have to, as The God States, save ourselves, then, our families. Take care of home first, the way kids are raised. The way patents treat their kids, etc. The God has sent guidance for all these things in His Last Revelation & thru His Last Prophet, Muhammad. When we don’t practice these, or leave off from them or part of them, the condition of the world is the end results.

8. Since we are in no condition nor should we take things into our own hands, the best & only things are prayers, & making sure you are conducting yourself in the best of manners. Then, running your households in the best of manners. Teaching your families the best conducts, involving yourself in as much good as you can. Help others. Help & protest for the weak & innocent among humans & animals. Volunteer your services where help is needed, nursing homes, shelters for humans & animals. Hospitals. Writing letters, staying on the backs & pulling the coats of leadership.

Talking things over with teachers & principals on how they can make their individual schools safe. Students forming groups that patrol, when they know of or hear of a troubled student, offer help, even if it’s someone just to listen. Have group week. Where the students under a qualified adult sits in & discuss the problems in the school, how to improve things. Take up collections from patents & other people in the area, for it is their school too. Use that money for needed things, like detectors. It’s sad, but needed, cause how are they getting in with sawed off shot guns?

Most of these kids who shoot up schools were troubled, misguided in some way. Even if they were just evil, it is noticeable. But we tend to not know the signs or in most cases, turning a blind eye, for some, we just can’t imagine that my friend, my son, my daughter, my schoolmate, my co-workers, my husband, my wife, my dog, my cat, could ever do wrong.

But dogs bites, cats scratch, kids bully, teens kill, husband’s/wives cheat, co-workers back stab, judges can be bought, cops abuse the laws, presidents sit on their hands, etc.

We the people as a group, in our individual towns & schools, have to do, especially, when we see others won’t. Cause if we wait on the world to change, while we go about our everyday lives, thinking it’s someone else’s job, we are going to be waiting a long, long, time.

On a side note:

Suicide bombers are in hell, for there are two sins The God does not forgive, ascribing partners with or instead of Him. And one who takes his own life.

If you know someone in pain, try & help. Never let hurt escalate to the point of no return. Within one’s own self or in another.

Harming one’s self or others is never the answer. The God is there to Help. And even if you don’t believe in Him, it still doesn’t make harming yourself or others the answer. No matter what.

Asked to be born

I am sorry that you feel you needed permission to exist. If asked, you would say no?

But instead, why not thank Him that you do exist & make the best of it? This life is temporary. And our individual stay here differs. Years are short, days, hours & minutes even shorter.

If this life seems bad, that is because it is a prison for believers & a paradise for disbelievers. The tests & trials we are faced with on a daily basis, is just that, “tests & trials.”

But too many of us are under the assumption that we can do it all on our own. We are in control of our on lives or even if we feel our lives are out of control. Either way, we have to come to the realization that we are not in control or everyone would have everything go the way they like.

If one’s life is out of control, Only One can fix it. Even if one has been blessed, there’s Only One that should be thanked & praised.

Without The God & there is no god but He, Who has no partners, Who begets not nor was He begotten & there is none like to nto Him, yes, one would not exist.

Our lives are in stages. A sperm drop. A fetus. A baby. Then our lives begin. We live in this world for a time. Then in the grave for a time. Then in The Hereafter for eternity.

We can’t change The Way The God does things. Nor can we question Him. He is our Creator.

We can only make the best of our lives & what we are given in this life, to make our next stages better.

Do as much good as you can. Worship The God, keep Him in remembrance. Help others. Be kind & kind hearted. And never mind the rest of the world, meaning, live your life seeking The God’s Pleasure not everyone else.

Live your life for the next stage of it. Gather up as much good deeds as you can. Even a smile is charity. Someone may just need that in their day.

Valuteer at soup kitchens. At animal shelters. The hospital. Don’t try & gather up all this life has to offer of glitter & gold. For that is exactly where it will stay, in this life. But the good deeds, they benefit you here & you take them with you.

But the best part is that the good deeds manifold. 5 prayers a day, which takes 7mins. each, is equal to 50 prayers a day.

So don’t look at why you were not asked to live, but live with gratitude for the chance to rack up on good deeds so that your eternal home will be one of peace & happiness. Living in mansions made of gold & silver with rivers flowing beneath. Having everything your heart desires & things your heart can never imagine.

Never, ever feeling sad, sick, jealous, hurt, pain, lost of love ones, no need to work to get what you want, just ask & it appears. There is a tree in Paradise so huge, it would take one riding horseback, 100yrs. to cross it’s shadow. And we know how fast horses are. Having all that is worth dealing with the few years in this life.
