California Dreamin’

  1. “we may have to spend some time living in different cities.”

    Friend MISSYJBETTS

    The distance between the two cities is only a 125 kilometres as I understand; your husband could come and go daily to his job from Saint Diego to los angeles; not much of a problem, I think, if there is a highway connecting both the cities.

    Wish both of you good-luck.

  2. “and lately, by studying world religions”

    This is also good.
    I think I suggested you to study Quran. Did you start it?
    It is not a big volume book; it consist of less than 80000 word in total in Arabic; if one excludes the repeated words in the text; then it is only about 2000 words in Arabic. And it is not difficult for an intelligent person like you to learn these words for study of Quran in the original language it was descended by the one True God who authored it; not authored by Muhammad.

    And translation in English is also available; for which I suggest you a link:

    Dreaming makes to understand belief in the Afterlife easier; you know belief in the afterlife is a pillar of the truthful faith.

Common Sense

Sometimes even a good life can get in the way of allowing you to do the things you want to do — like write. More specifically, like me having the time to write about the things I care about. I feel like I have a great life — I have a good job, an amazing husband, the cutest little (I use that term loosely) English Bulldog you have ever seen and I am about to move to arguably one of the most amazing cities in the world, San Diego.

Ahhhh… San Diego. Land of palm trees and beautiful beaches; A city where people would rather ride their bikes or walk as opposed to drive; A city that offers an easy-going lifestyle if you want it and, if you don’t, makes it hard to resist; A paradise where it doesn’t snow, it hardly rains and the weather never ventures far from…

Our Endangered Languages List

June 15, 2013

Paarsurrey says:

No language is man-made; all languages are made by the one true God, as a man should be respected so does every language. As man is born and dies so do the languages. Arabic is the mother of all languages; that does not mean that it does not have a grand mother; it means that Arabic got developed in the ancient times by the grace of one true God , it has nurtured other languages and it is destined to be a living languages and it is least affected by wearing away of time due to its inherent systems.
For such and many other features of the Arabic language, the revelation of Quran has been sent in Arabic by the one true God; though revelation from the one true God could be in any language that humans speak.

Michael Bradley - Time Traveler

In a reverse Tower of Babel, mankind is consolidating its languages with globalism.  Our species speaks over 7,000 languages right now, but those are quickly being reduced to 20 or fewer.  Below is an article on some of the most endangered languages.  I was kind of surprised to find that Rapa Nui (the Easter Island language) was not already extinct.  If you look up my Irish history post on St. Patrick’s Day, you will find my ancestral language of Gaelic is nearly snuffed out on purpose by the Brits.

Quran’s real charm is its profound system of meaning conveyed in its message

May 9, 2013

I give here  posts written by me for my favourite discussion forum on the thread <Is Islam a universal religion>: http://www.religiousforums.com/forum/religious-debates/147598-islam-universal-religion-13.html

#127

Quran does not mention it; that could be only opinions of those who claim it.

It is true that Quran if read in the Arabic language a little loudly in a manner that it does not disturb others has its own spell-bound charm; that cannot be denied.

Nevertheless; its real charm is its profound system of meaning conveyed in its message; one could benefit from, in any language.

I have personal experience of this; people borrow questions from unfriendly websites; but when referred to Quran, for the text and context, the questions become irrelevant.

One may just try it.

The focus of praying in Arabic is for preservation of the text; along-with the Arabic one could silently make a translation in one’s own language, it is not forbidden.

It is emphasized that one should also pray in one’s own mother-tongue for personal prays (supplications) in sajda (Prostration) or ruku (bowing down following the recitation of the Quran in the standing position while praying); that is most appreciated. The stress is that one’s spirit should move along the body.

For the “holy language” or that other languages are “unholy”; citation from Quran may please be given.

I may add here that all translations, in fact, are commentaries as one could translate only to the extent one understands; if one does not understand fully one’s translation would be defective to that extent.

#130 Translations of Quran are not the real word of God; that is factual and reasonable; that does not mean that Quran should not be translated for understanding it.

Arabic “Mother of all languages”

May 4, 2012

Arabic-is “mother of all languages” in the sense the Promised Messiah has explained in the book (he wrote 80+ books) written by him titled in Arabic “Minan-ur-Rehman”.

He also put a prize money for those who could prove some other language as “mother of all languages” in the sense he mentioned Arabic to be the mother of all languages; nobody ever could prove another language to be as such in his life or afterwards.

Some words in Chapter Jinn of Quran discussed

Paarsurrey wrote:

Hi friends

First we will start with our research with words in the Quranic Text, certain names, proper names and general names; and my tools would be wikipedia, wiktionary and Arabic-English Dictionary.

In people:
• Ant, aka Anthony Phillips (b. 1951), British guitarist with the band Genesis
• Ant (comedian), aka Anthony Kalloniatis (b. 1967), American actor and comedian
• ANT, aka Antony Harding, British musician, and solo project of Hefner drummer
• Ant (producer), aka Anthony Davis, American record producer and member of the Rhymesayers hip-hop collective
• Anthony McPartlin, one of the British television presenter duo Ant & Dec with Declan Donnelly.
• Adam Ant (b. 1954), British musician, and lead singer of Adam and the Ants.
• Ant, aka Anthony Davidson, an English racing driver
Adam Ant (born Stuart Leslie Goddard on 3 November 1954) is an English musician who gained popularity as the lead singer of 1980s New Wave/post-punk group Adam & the Ants and later as a solo artist. He is also an actor, having appeared in two dozen films or television episodes between 1985 and 1999.[1]
In geography:
• River Ant, in Norfolk, England
• Ant (Island), in Micronesia
• Antigua and Barbuda, IOC Country code

So, if one says I talked to Ant meaning thereby the person Anthony Davidson, others should not be surprised.

If one says I visited Ant meaning thereby a place “Ant (Island), in Micronesia ” it should not be looked as strange.

The Arabic word used in Quran is namal translated as Ant, root n-m-l, I have opened Arabic to English Dictionary; it states: Swarming with ants (place): Fiery (horse).

It must be understood that in English we add with a proper name Mr., Miss, or Mrs., to distinguish that it is a proper name, but not in Arabic and many languages of the East.

In ancient times different tribes had been moving from one region to another regions for many reasons and hence taking along with them names of places and persons. One of my friends from Pakistan visited me incidentally and he told me that there is a village near Chakwal with the name Namal and he had visited the village and lived there for a day or two.

We may continue with research of the word namal translated as ant.

Thanks for the time being.

Hi friend morda8

I mention here two short Surahs for you:

The Holy Quran : Chapter 1: Al-Fatihah

[1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
[1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.
[1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
[1:6] Guide us in the right path —
[1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

The Holy Quran : Chapter 112: Al-Ikhlas

[112:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[112:2] Say, ‘He is Allah, the One;
[112:3] ‘Allah, the Independent and Besought of all.
[112:4] ‘He begets not, nor is He begotten;
[112:5] ‘And there is none like unto Him.’

These are ones of the most read Surahs of Quran.

‎“united against Islamic supremacism”: “Islam’s Golden Rule”‎‎

October 2, 2009

There is a new comment on the post “Islam’s Golden Rule”.
http://unitedagainstislamicsupremacism.wordpress.com/2009/07/07/islams-golden-rule/

Author: perceptor1
Comment:
Notwithstanding the sincerity of Mr. Paarsurrey’s Ahmadist beliefs, it is most likely that the Islamic religion came into existence at least 150 years following the alleged death of Mohammed.

The birth date of the Prophet displays a remarkable range of variance of eighty-five years! Little can be shown about Islamic origins…practically all is hearsay…hadiths…all written at least 150 years after the alleged facts…

Were most of the ‘facts’ simply manufactured by the caliphs as justification for their Holy Arab Empire and their dynasties? I personally believe this is the most likely explanation. First the empire, then the cover story was invented.

True Muslim texts only begin to appear at the beginning of the ninth century (around 822 A.D.), coinciding with the first written Korans, as well as the first written traditional Muslim accounts.

There are no credible source texts extant since the caliphs went around destroying all the evidence from their predecessors and burning it! The al-Maghazi and What we have to prove the origins of Islam is some buildings and coins.

Indeed, it appears that the only secure date anywhere in the whole saga of the origins of Islam is 622 C.E., which has been confirmed from dated coinage as marking the beginning of a new era.

There are many archaeological evidence proving the cover story of Islam was fabricated. As late as 705 A.D. the direction of prayer towards Mecca had not yet been canonized. The quibla (direction of prayer) was still far to the north (southern Palestine?) and not towards Mecca. Official Islam says the qibla was changed in 624, but this assuredly did not occur until after 705 A.D.

In the hundred years following this period, Islam as we know it was created by order of the caliphs. The undecipherable, baffling text of the Koran was hastily thrown together with little apparent editing from a plethora of source texts. Who knows who their authors were? Some of the Koran may have come from Mohammed, but that is a subject for future scholarship to determine.

Comment:
Dear Mr. Huntingnasrallah,

The word ‘completion’ was no doubt chosen intentionally to say to Jews and Christian that their faith was ‘incomplete’. (Over 60% of the Koran is composed of attacks on the faith of Jews and Christians.)

The unity (better yet, the ‘Singleness’) of God was the buttress of the opposition to Christianity and to the polytheistic Arab pagans. The Jews already had this, though Mohammed invented the preposterous idea that they worshipped Ezra (Uzayr) as the son of God!

Ezra was one of the greatest opponents of idolatry!

I personally don’t see tawid as the key to understanding Islam…that is part of the package, obviously. The ‘Completion’ of religion (Yo! We have the ALL the truth…we have an order to put you out of business!)is the excuse the caliphs needed for invasion and conquest.

My conclusion is that Islam is an imperial political movement covered by the flimsy veil and justification of the fabricated cover story of religion.

Islam the caliphs’ dynasty at prayer.

Paarsurrey says:

Hi friend perceptor1‎

Sorry;I don’t agree with your viewpoint with reasons.‎

How did the Caliphs come into power? Caliph means ‎Successor; of whom they were the successors if not of ‎Muhammad:‎

Quran is called a book only because it was a Revelation ‎with systems; otherwise it was Revelation from the Creator ‎of the universe descended on the heart of Muhammad which ‎was committed to the memory by heart and need not be ‎written in paper. Even of all the Books of the world are ‎destroyed or burnt; the Quran would remain intact in the ‎memory of the believers, word for word and letter for ‎letter. This system from the time of Muhammad remains ‎intact. If one wants to verify; one could do it so easily. ‎God to any Mosque of the world; take a written copy of ‎Quran in Arabic; ask the Mosque people of a Qari/Hafiz or ‎reciter of Quran from the memory; he will recite it exactly ‎as the written one is with you. You may testify for ‎yourself; if you have any doubt.‎

Use of Plural “We” for a single person: Usage in Arabic and Urdu

March 4, 2009

I am just starting to read the Koran and got confused as to whom the “We” is referring to. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Paarsurrey says:

Hi

I appreciate your interest in reading Quran.

Different languages have different connotations for the pronouns. In India, Urdu speaking people would address even a child in plural; “Aapp kiya ker rahey hain”. What are you doing? Urdu language uses “you” with a plural though the addressee is a single person. The child may respond: “ hum kheil rahey hain” or “We are playing”. The child is a small single person but using plural for him. This is the usage of a language which should be understood and not to be confused with.

I think this helps.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

Thanks
