Imshallah



Let me write this post in English _as it's the language I use to write to Sara, my sister, the most beautiful daughter of Prophet Muhammad (Peace to Him), and her kind wishes of peace, love, compassion and understunding. You can see, my dear, that I follow your advices, and make my efforts to understand the beauty of the Islam which I see inside you _and to learn its message.

It's because of you I've put myself again at the feet of my spiritual buddhist master, to look forward his guide through compassion, to me and to the others who suffer as I do, who are confussionate as I am, to bring up goodness from where only was evil.


And it's really because of you and the gift you have made to me through Islam. It really is.


You have teached to me that Goodness _and Godness can be found everywhere. And your links in my worst post are so kind as brave and honest, helping me as you do believe you can _as you are indeed.

This flower is your portrait as I see you, beautiful in your hijab, glowing under the Sun of the Desert.


Esta flor es también para otros.

Gracias, Ent. Sé que sigues ahí. Lejos, pero cerca.

Obrigada, José. Tú sabes lo que es esto.

Obrigada tambien, Joca. Tu español, para mí, es el más bello.

Gracias, R. y Herber West, por buscar ayuda en mi nombre.

Y a quienes habéis sentido compasión alguna al leerme estos días, gracias también. A vosotros en particular os pido que penséis en mí si alguna vez en vuestra vida tenéis que presenciar la locura en alguien cercano. Depende de cada uno de nosotros, de vosotros, separar la vida de la muerte de casi un millón de personas, sólo en Europa, cada año. Yo todavía estoy aquí.

Todavía tengo esperanza.

Estimada, "Small blue thing", manejo una pequeña bitácora de poesía en la que coloco a diario un poema. El perteneciente al día de hoy es de Jacques Prévert ("Para hacer el retrato de un pájaro") y como hipervínculo (liga) he colocado, una entrada de su diario: (http://cristaljar.blogspot.com/2004/10/traspapelada.html). La cual, me cautivó por representar con elegancia ese puente levadizo que une lector y literatura.
En caso de ver como inapropiada la inclusión, le ruego me avise para solucionar el problema en el acto. Saludos,

Quran

"O Mankind, We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other. Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God is he who is the most righteous of you" (Quran 49:13).

[And of His signs is this: He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!] (Ar-Rum 30:20)

[O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women.] (An-Nisaa’ 4:1)

[Then set your face upright for religion in the right state—the nature made by God in which He has made men; there is no altering of God's creation; that is the right religion, but most people do not know.] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

[Verily we have honored the Children of Adam. We carry them on the land and the sea, and have made provision of good things for them, and have preferred them above many of those whom We created with a marked preferment.] (Al-Israa’ 17:70)

[Allah it is Who hath made the sea of service unto you that the ships may run thereon by His command, and that ye may seek of His bounty, and that haply ye may be thankful; And hath made of service unto you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; it is all from Him. Lo! herein verily are portents for a people who reflect.] (Al-Jathiyah 45:12-13)

[For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind] (Al-Ma’ida 5:32).

Body, Spirit, Mind, Heart, and Conscience

The multi-dimensional nature that Man has been blessed with highlights the essence of his creation, his role, and his destiny. Rather than stressing on the body or the soul in isolation, Islam endorses a view in which the body, the spirit, the mind, the heart, and the conscience of Man are all highlighted. Islam does not endorse a worldview in which the physical body is seen as something “profane” and vulgar and necessarily completely independent from the purity of the spirit. Just as the spirit can be purified, the purification of the body is also an important part of everyday life.

Islam also respects both the mind and the conscience of Man. Many verses in the Qur’an stress the importance of using the mind when it says what means

[Certainly We have revealed to you a Book in which is your good remembrance; what! do you not then understand?] (Al-Anbiyaa’ 21:10)

Also it says what means

[It is He Who gives life and death, and to Him [is due] the alternation of Night and Day: will ye not then understand?] (Al-Mu’minun 23:80)

And again

[Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an? If it had been from other than God they would have found therein much incongruity.] (An-Nisaa’ 4:82)

Pondering, understanding, thinking, are all encouraged. It is Man’s conscience that leads him to repent sincerely when he has sinned, thereby paving the way for God’s guaranteed forgiveness.

All of these aspects are not taken separately, but are seen as working in a mutually interdependent harmony, each supporting the other towards the goal of achieving inner peace and content in this life and the next.

Therefore, Man is not seen as a single-faceted entity, but rather as a multi-dimensional, honored being with a purpose in life and a goal to achieve. He is considered holistically, rather than partially. He is endowed with the abilities and traits that can help him both achieve his mission here on earth and elevate himself through a close relationship with his Creator and attain Paradise.
