Death of Ignorance or Mushrik???

 

From Sulaym ibn Qays al Hilali said;

 

"He (Sulaym) heard a hadith from Salman, Abu Dhar, and Miqdad who heard it from the Holy Prophet (saww) that He said: "Whoever dies and does not have an Imam, then he has died the death of ignorance"

 

Then he (Sulaym) presented this hadith to Jabir and ibn Abbas. Both of them said: "They all said correctly and truthfully. We were present at the time and we have heard this hadith from the Holy Prophet (saww). And verily Salman said: "O Messenger of Allah, you said whoever dies without an Imam dies as an infidel. O Messenger of Allah, who is this Imam?” The Prophet (saww) said: "They are my Wasi (successors), So who ever dies from my Ummah and has no Imam whom he knows, he has died the death of ignorance, and if he is ignorant of the Imam and bears enmity with the Imam, then he is an idol worshipper (Mushrik). And if he is ignorant of the Imam and does not have enmity with the Imam and does not befriend the enemy of the Imam then he then he is ignorant but not idol worshiper."

 

[source: Kitab-e-Sulaym, Hadith. 71 & Kamal al-Deen - Shaikh Sadooq, Vol. 2, Pg. 413/414]

 

حدثنا أبي ومحمد بن الحسن رضي الله عنهما، قالا: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله وعبد الله بن جعفر الحميري جميعا عن محمد بن عيسى ويعقوب بن يزيد وإبراهيم بن هاشم جميعا عن حماد بن عيسى عن عمر بن أذينة عن أبان بن أبي عياش عن سليم بن قيس الهلالي:

أنه سمع من سلمان ومن أبي ذر ومن المقداد رحمة الله عليهم حديثا عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: (من مات وليس له إمام مات ميتة جاهلية).

ثم عرضه على جابر وابن عباس فقالا: صدقوا وبروا، قد شهدنا ذلك وسمعناه من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، وإن سلمان قال: يا رسول الله، إنك قلت: (من مات وليس له إمام مات ميتة جاهلية)، من هذا الإمام يا رسول الله .قال صلى الله عليه وآله: من أوصيائي يا سلمان. فمن مات من أمتي وليس له إمام يعرفه مات ميتة جاهلية. فإن جهله وعاداه فهو مشرك، وإن جهله ولم يعاده ولم يوال له عدوا فهو جاهل وليس بمشرك

Kitab Al Kafi - Obidience and piety

H 1610, CH 32, h 2

 

A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn

Fadal from ‘Asim ibn Humayd from abu Hamza al-Thumali from abu Ja’far,

recipient of divine supreme covenant, who has said the following:

 

“The Messenger of Allah addressed the people during his farewell (last) visit to Makka, ‘O people, I swear by Allah, everything that can take you closer to paradise and farther away from hell I have commanded you all to follow. Everything that may take you closer to hell and farther away from paradise I have prohibited you to do. You must know that the trusted spirit has inspired me that no soul dies before his supply of sustenance is completely exhausted. Be pious before Allah and do your best in search of means of sustenance. Do not allow laziness to overcome you in your search to make a living, or lead you to make a living through improper means; nothing is achievable from what is with Allah except through obedience to Him.’”

 

 الحديث الثاني : موثق كالصحيح.

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن هشام بن الحكم أنه سأل أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن أسماء الله واشتقاقها: الله مما هو مشتق؟ قال: فقال لي: يا هشام الله مشتق من إله والاله يقتضي مألوها والاسم غير المسمى، فمن عبد الاسم دون المعنى فقد كفر ولم يعبد شيئا، ومن عبد الاسم والمعنى فقد كفر وعبد اثنين، ومن عبد المعنى دون الاسم فذاك التوحيد أفهمت يا هشام؟ قال: فقلت: زدني قال: إن لله تسعة وتسعين اسما فلو كان الاسم هو المسمى لكان كل اسم منها إلها ولكن الله معنى يدل عليه بهذه الاسماء وكلها غيره، يا هشام الخبز اسم للمأكول والماء اسم للمشروب والثوب اسم للملبوس والنار اسم للمحرق أفهمت يا هشام فهما تدفع به وتناضل به أعداء نا والمتخذين مع الله عزوجل غيره؟ قلت: نعم، قال: فقال: نفعك الله به وثبتك يا هشام، قال هشام فوالله ما قهرني أحد في التوحيد حتى قمت مقامي هذا.

`Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from an-Nadr b. Suwayd from Hisham b. al-Hakam.

He asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about the names of Allah and their derivations: Where is “Allah” derived from? He said: So he said to me: O Hisham, “Allah” is derived from “god” (ilah) and “the god” (al-ilah), that which has a servant (yaqtadi ma’looha). And a name is different from what is described; for whoever worships the name without the meaning has disbelieved and has worshiped nothing. And whoever worships the name and the meaning has disbelieved and has worshiped two things. Whoever worships the meaning without the name – that is monotheism (tawhid). Have you understood, O Hisham? He said: So I said: [Explain] further for me. He said: For Allah there are ninety-nine names; so if each name were a described thing, then each name from it would be a deity. However, Allah is the meaning that these names are indicative to, and they are all something other than Him. O Hisham, “bread” is the name of an edible, “water” is the name of a beverage, “cloth” is the name of what is worn, and “fire” is the name of what burns. Have you understood, O Hisham, with a comprehension that, by which, you can defend [our cause], and struggle against our enemies and those who have taken up [a deity] besides Allah عزوجل? So I said: Yes. He said: So he said: May Allah avail you by it and make you steadfast, O Hisham.

Hisham said: By Allah, no one has overcome me in monotheism (tawhid) till this position I stand at (i.e. till this day). (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 230)

"Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?”People cried and answered: "Yes, O’ Messenger of God.”Then Prophet (S) held up the hand of ‘Ali and said: "Whoever I am his leader (Mawla), ‘Ali is his leader (Mawla). O’ God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him."

أحمد بن إدريس، عن محمد بن عبد الجبار، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن فضيل ابن عثمان، عن ابن أبي يعفور قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن قول الله عز وجل: " هو الاول والآخر " وقلت: أما الاول فقد عرفناه وأما الآخر فبين لنا تفسيره فقال: إنه ليس شئ إلا يبيد أو يتغير، أو يدخله التغير والزوال، أو ينتقل من لون إلى لون، ومن هيئة إلى هيئة، ومن صفة إلى صفة، ومن زيادة إلى نقصان، ومن نقصان إلى زيادة إلا رب العالمين فإنه لم يزل ولا يزال بحالة واحدة، هو الاول قبل كل شئ وهو الآخر على ما لم يزل، ولا تختلف عليه الصفات والاسماء كما تختلف على غيره، مثل الانسان الذي يكون ترابا مرة، ومرة لحما ودما، ومرة رفاتا و رميما، وكالبسر الذي يكون مرة بلحا، ومرة بسرا، ومرة رطبا، ومرة تمرا، فتتبدل عليه الاسماء والصفات والله عز وجل بخلاف ذلك.

Ahmad b. Idris from Muhammad b. `Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan b. Yahya from al-Fadl b. `Uthman from ibn Abi Ya`foor.

He said: I asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about the saying of Allah عز وجل, “He is the First and the Last” (57:3). And I said: As for [the meaning of] “the First”, we know it; but as for “the Last” – elucidate its interpretation for us. 

So he said: It is that there is no thing except that it can perish or be changed; or be susceptible to alteration or disappearance; or shift from one colour to another and from one shape to another and from one quality to another; or from abundant to lacking and from lacking to abundant – except for the Lord of the worlds; for He is unceasing and unhalting in His solitary state. He is the First before all things, and He is the Last and does not cease. [His] qualities and His names do not change as they change for other than Him; like the humans who were dust at a time, and flesh and blood at a time, and corpses and powder at a time – and like a date that was raw at a time, and ripe at a time, and dry at a time, and then a date. Its names and qualities change, and Allah عز وجل is different from that. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 309)

And also, a Shi'a version.

 

 

 

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، ويعقوب بن يزيد جميعا، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن معروف بن خربوذ، عن أبي الطفيل عامر بن واثلة، عن حذيفة بن أسيد الغفاري قال:

 

لما رجع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله من حجة الوداع ونحن معه أقبل حتى انتهى إلى الجحفة فأمر أصحابه بالنزول فنزل القوم منازلهم، ثم نودي بالصلاة فصلى بأصحابه ركعتين، ثم أقبل بوجهه إليهم فقال لهم: إنه قد نبأني اللطيف الخبير أني ميت وأنكم ميتون، وكأني قد دعيت فأجبت وأني مسؤول عما أرسلت به إليكم، وعما خلفت فيكم من كتاب الله وحجته وأنكم مسؤولون، فما أنتم قائلون لربكم؟ قالوا: نقول: قد بلغت ونصحت وجاهدت - فجزاك الله عنا أفضل الجزاء –

 

ثم قال لهم: ألستم تشهدون أن لا إله إلا الله وأني رسول الله إليكم وأن الجنة حق؟ وأن النار حق؟ وأن البعث بعد الموت حق؟ فقالوا: نشهد بذلك، قال: اللهم اشهد على ما يقولون، ألا وإني أشهدكم أني أشهد أن الله مولاي، وأنا مولى كل مسلم، وأنا أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم، فهل تقرون لي بذلك، وتشهدون لي به؟ فقالوا: نعم نشهد لك بذلك،

 

فقال: ألا من كنت مولاه فإن عليا مولاه وهو هذا، ثم أخذ بيد علي عليه السلام فرفعها مع يده حتى بدت آباطهما: ثم: قال: اللهم وال من والاه، وعاد من عاداه، وانصر من نصره واخذل من خذله، ألا وإني فرطكم  وأنتم واردون علي الحوض، حوضي غدا وهو حوض عرضه ما بين بصرى وصنعاء فيه أقداح من فضة عدد نجوم السماء، ألا وإني سائلكم غدا ماذا صنعتم فيما أشهدت الله به عليكم في يومكم هذا إذا وردتم علي حوضي، وماذا صنعتم بالثقلين من بعدي فانظروا كيف تكونون خلفتموني فيهما حين تلقوني؟

 

قالوا: وما هذان الثقلان يا رسول الله؟

 

قال: أما الثقل الأكبر فكتاب الله عز وجل، سبب ممدود من الله ومني في أيديكم، طرفه بيد الله والطرف الآخر بأيديكم، فيه علم ما مضى وما بقي إلى أن تقوم الساعة، وأما الثقل الأصغر فهو حليف القرآن وهو علي بن أبي طالب و عترته عليهم السلام، وإنهما لن يفترقا حتى يردا علي الحوض.

 

قال معروف بن خربوذ: فعرضت هذا الكلام على أبي جعفر عليه السلام فقال: صدق أبو الطفيل - رحمه الله - هذا الكلام وجدناه في كتاب علي عليه السلام وعرفناه

 

Muḥammad b. al-Ḥasan b. Aḥmad b. al-Walīd, may Allāh be pleased with him – Muḥammad b. al-Ḥasan al-Ṣaffār – Muḥammad b. al-Ḥusayn b. Abī al-Khaṭṭāb and Ya’qūb b. Yazīd – Muḥammad b. Abī ‘Umayr – ‘Abd Allāh b. Sinān – Ma’rūf b. Kharbūz – Abū al-Ṭufayl ‘Āmir b. Wāthilah – Ḥudhayfah b. Usayd al-Ghiffārī:

 

When the Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him and his family, returned from the Farewell Pilgrimage, and we were with him until he reached al-Juḥfah, and ordered his companions to camp. So, the people camped. Then he called for alāt, and prayed two rak’ahs with his companions. Then he turned his face to them and said to them: “I have been informed by the All-Benevolent All-Knowing that I will die, and you too will die. And it is as if I have been called (into the presence of my Lord) and I have answered. I will be asked about what I have been sent with to you, and about what I have left behind among you, the Book of Allāh AND ITS UJJAH, and you too will be asked. What will you say in reply to your Lord?” They said, “You have conveyed the message, and you have directed (to the right path), and you have made jihād. May Allāh reward you, from us, the best of rewards.”

 

Then he said, “Do you not testify that there is no god but Allāh and that I am the Messenger of Allāh to you and that the Paradise is true? And that Hellfire is true? And that the resurrection after death is true?” They said, “We testify to that”. He said, “O Allāh! Bear witness to what they are saying. And I make you my witnesses that I testify that Allāh is Mawlā, and I am the mawlā of every Muslim, and that I have more authority over the believers than themselves. Do you accept this with me, and testify for me with it?” They said, “Yes, we testify for you with it.”

 

So, he said, “Verily, whosoever I am his mawlā, verily ‘Alī is his mawlā, and it is this one”. Then he heard the hand of ‘Alī, peace be upon him, and raised it high with his hand until their armpits were visible. Then he said, “O Allāh, be the friend of whosoever is his friend, and be the enemy of whosoever is hostile to him. Help whosoever helps him and abandon whosoever abandons him. Verily, I will be your predecessor (at the Lake-Font), and you will be brought to me at the Lake-Font, my Lake-Font, tomorrow, and it is a Lake-Font whose width is of the distance between Basra (in Iraq) and Sana’a (in Yemen). In it are glasses of silver, the number of the stars in the sky. Verily, I will ask you tomorrow what you did concerning that which I asked Allāh to testify about against you in this day of yours when you are brought to my Lake-Font, and verily I will ask you, when you meet me, about what you have done with the Two Weighty Things (al-Thaqalayn) after me. Therefore, watch carefully how you treat them both in my absence.

 

They said, “What are these Two Weighty Things, O Messenger of Allāh?”

 

He replied, “As for the Bigger Weighty Thing, it is the Book of Allāh, a rope stretching from Allāh and from me, in your hands, one end of it is in the Hand of Allāh and the other end is in your hands. In it is knowledge of what had passed, and what will pass till the Hour. As for the Smaller Weighty Thing, it is THE PAIR OF THE QUR’ĀN and that is ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib and his bloodline, peace be upon him. Both (Weighty Things) shall NEVER separate from each other until they meet me at the Lake-Font.”

 

Ma’rūf b. Kharbūz said: “I presented this statement to Abū Ja’far, peace be upon him, and he replied, ‘Abū al-Ṭufayl, may Allāh be merciful to him, spoke the truth. We find this statement in the Book of ‘Alī, peace be upon him, and we recognize it.”

Al Kafi:
Graded Muwathaq
He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام: I heard Hisham b. al-Hakam narrate from you that Allah has a body, supported by light, His recognition is necessary and He bestows this [knowledge] upon whom He wills from the creation. So he عليه السلام said: Glorified be He, whom no one knows how He is except Himself. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing. He cannot be limited, nor can He be felt, nor can He be moved, nor can He be comprehended [by sight, nor by] the senses, nor can He be contained in anything, nor does He have a body, nor does He have a form, nor a figure, nor a confine. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 278)

Imam Ali a.s


Do not seek help or protection from anybody but Allah. Reserve your prayers, your requests, your solicitations, your supplications, and your entreaties to Him and Him alone because to grant, to give, to confer and to bestow, as well as to withhold, to deprive, to refuse, and to debar, lies only in His Power. Ask as much of His Blessings and seek as much of His Guidance as you can.


 


Nahjul Balagah Letter 31- in his will to Imam Hassan a.s


 


Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) said to Maisar“ O Maisar! Offer prayer to Allah and don’t say that what is destined will happen. You should remember that Allah has absolute control over the destinies and supplication can change the fate of persons.”


 


Imam Mohammed Baqir (a.s.) said, “ The best prayer is supplication and the worst enemy of Allah is a person who, in his pride, refuses to do supplication and invocation.To the contrary one who supplicates to Allah with due humility will get his prayers answered. It is like the door opening for a person who keeps knocking at it!

From Yāsir, the servant, said, I said to al-Riḍā  a.s

‘What do you say about al-Tafwīd?’ And he said: ‘Allāh  delegated (fawwaḍa) to His prophet affairs of His religion’, and He said: “Take whatever the Messenger gives to you, and deny for yourself whatever he prohibits” (59:7). As for (delegating) the creation and sustenance, then No! He said: ‘Allāh says “Allāh is the creator of all things’ (3:16) and He says “It is Allāh, He has created you, then He has given you sustenance, then He has made you die, then He has brought you back to life, are there any of your partners who can does of that any of these things? Glory be to Allāh, and High is He from the partners (they attribute)” (30:40)

عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس ابن عبد الرحمن، عن الحسن بن السرى، عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي قال: سألت أبا جعفر عليه السلام عن شئ من التوحيد، فقال: إن الله تباركت أسماؤه التي يدعا بها وتعالى في علو كنهه واحد توحد بالتوحيد في توحده (5)، ثم أجراه على خلقه فهو واحد، صمد، قدوس، يعبده كل شئ ويصمد إليه كل شئ ووسع كل شئ علما.
 
Several of our companions from Ahmad b. Abi `Abdillah from Muhammad b. `Isa from Yunus b. `Abd ar-Rahman from al-Hasan b. as-Sari from Jabir b. Yazeed al-Ju`fi.

He said: I asked Abu Ja`far عليه السلام something about monotheism (tawhid), so he said: Allah, whose names are holy and by them He is called, is exalted by His being. He is one; united solitarily in His oneness. He then made His creatures and thus He is one, self-sufficient (samad), and holy. He is worshiped by all things, and all things depend on Him. His knowledge expands over all things. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 320)

Assalamu'aleikum wb.

 

A narration from Imam Jaffar Al-Sadiq (as) which is cited in 'al-Kafi' says that one of his companions asked whether a believer may become discontented when his soul is being taken. He (s) replied: 

"By Allah, No! When the angel of death comes to take his soul the believer shows restlessness and the angel says: 'O, Lover of Allah! Be not upset! By He Who has appointed Mohammad (s) to prophethood, I am more sympathetic to you than a kind father. Look carefully!' He looks carefully and sees Prophet Mohammad, Amir -al- Mo'mineen Ali, Fatimah, Hasan, Husain and other Imams from their descendants [as]

 

The angel tells him to look and see that they [as] are all his friends. He opens his eyes and watches. A caller from Almighty Allah suddenly beckons and says:"O, you serene soul! Come back to your Lord well-pleased (with Him) and well-pleasing (Him) . So enter among My servants. And enter into My Garden ". At that moment there is nothing better and more beloved than that his soul separates from his body as soon as possible and moves unto his Lord.

The following words are part of a Ziyarah of Imam Ali (as) to be recited on 27th of Rajab:


 


أنت مننت علي بزيارة مولاي أمير المؤمنين و ولايته و معرفته فاجعلني ممن ينصره و ينتصر به


 


"O Allah, surely You have bestowed favors upon me by giving me the opportunity of visiting my master Amir al-Momineen (as) and by his Wilayah and by his Ma'arifah (knowing Him). Then include me from those who help him and seek help from him."

The following narration is by our Imams a.s, it is not my translation and i have forgotten whose it was, by Nader Zaveri has deemed it Authentic as per our notable scholars.
 

حمدويه، قال حدثنا يعقوب، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن شعيب، عن أبي بصير، قال : قلت لأبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) إنهم يقولون قال و ما يقولون قلت يقولون تعلم قطر المطر و عدد النجوم و ورق الشجر و وزن ما في البحر و عدد التراب، فرفع يده إلى السماء، و قال سبحان الله سبحان الله لا و الله ما يعلم هذا إلا الله

 

532. Hamdawayh who said: narrated to us Ya’qub from Ibn Abi Umayr from Shuayb from Abi Basir who said: I said to Abi Abdillah عليه السلام – they do say, he said: and what do they say? I said: they say that you know the number of the drops in the rain, and the number of the stars, and the number of leaves in all the trees, and the weight of what is in the ocean, and the number of sand particles, so he عليه السلام raised his hand to the sky and said: praise be to Allah, praise be to Allah, no by Allah, no one knows this except for Allah.

Racism

 

Kitab Al Kafi - H 2542, CH 119, h 2

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hisham ibn Salim and Drust ibn abu Mansur from abu ‘Abd Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, who has said the following:
 
“The Messenger of Allah has said,Whoever practices racial discrimination or it is practiced for him has removed the collar of belief from his neck.’”
 
٢ ـ علي بن إبراهيم ، عن أبيه ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن هشام بن سالم ودرست بن أبي منصور ، عن أبي عبد الله عليه‌السلام قال قال رسول الله صلى‌الله‌عليه‌وآله من تعصب أو تعصب له فقد خلع ربق الإيمان من عنقه.
الحديث الثاني : حسن كالصحيح ، وقد مضى مضمونه.

    • Just because they both have a noha called Badshah Hussain, the nohas are not similar to each other and the reciters cannot be compared. Both have their own style and people like them. 
    • Feel kindness toward your neighbors and friends, and make dua for them. When you see them, smile and be friendly. InShaAllah they will change their attitude toward you. 4th Imam AS - Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends (Supplication - 26) http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s26.htm
    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
