    shadow_of_light got a reaction from Mzwakhe for a blog entry, st. 17: Satan's death   
    در عالم حشر, تابنده رخش
    هر که نکرد گوش, بر اهریمن زشت
    کاخی است بهر او, فاخر, باشکوه
    پرده اش از حریر, وز طلایش خشت
    باغ آن پر گل, فصلش همیشه بهار
    در کنارش هیچ است, ماه اردیبهشت
    ...
    Part 2:
    This was Satan's last trick which didnt work.
    He said disappointedly: do you remember that once I gave you some helpful advice?
    I replied: yes.
    He said: so you owe me a lot! Now, ask God to forgive me!
    Gabriel appeared and told Satan: If you wish God to forgive you, prostrate before Human.
    Satan said: I will never do it. When Human was not my enemy, I didnt agree to prostrate before it. How can I do it now while it is my enemy?!
    Gabriel said: Once, when you lived in heaven, you heard that, in the near future, one of the worshippers would be punished and cast out of heaven.
    At that point, you prayed for everyone but yourself. You were so proud that you didnt think that you yourself could be the worshipper who would be cast out of heaven.
    Satan began crying.
    And I remembered him laughing while I was crying in the court.
    Satan became weaker and weaker until he died among the ruins of his palace.
    Then his corpse, as those of his followers, caught fire and burnt to ashes. And the earth swallowed the ruins of his palace.
    Satan died; on that day when I decided to never sin; on that moment when he became completely disappointed in me.

    shadow_of_light reacted to 3wliya_maryam for a blog entry, she fell from heaven and went back   
    A delicate young flower
    With great spiritual power
    A soul that descended from heaven
    And took some of its pure fragrance
    She brightened the whole city with her illuminance
    Her modesty and piety shone through its radiance
    She was indeed the greatest of the four 
    And God was the only one she spent time for
    Consistent in her prayers and faith 
    No woman could ever beat her status
    Without her existence there would've been no pure progeny
    To carry her father's word to all mankind
    She suffered with immense pain 
    After the loss of her beloved father 
    Not only she was faced with disdain 
    For trying to claim her right
    But she had to face the cruelty and injustice
    she had to face the torture and the flames
    Causing her to lose a small delicate soul
    The love of her life
    Couldn't bear to see those wounds 
    grief stricken to see his beloved wife
    Buried with those scars 
    She was a flower nipped in a bud 
    That fell from heaven and went back
    But her fragrance was still left in her lover's mind
    Peace be upon you, ya Fatima al Zahra (عليه السلام)
    سلام الله عليكي يا فاطمة الزهراء، يا بنت المعصومة❤️

    shadow_of_light reacted to Qa'im for a blog entry, The Four Elements   
    The idea that the world is composed of four or five elements (fire, water, earth, wind, and aether) was almost universal in the ancient world. The science and mythology of many ancient civilizations, from Greece to Japan, operated on this understanding.

    While Islam is not really married to the idea of four elements (it is not supported in an explicit way in the Quran or hadiths), it is interesting to note that Islamic metaphysics and cosmology use this system.

    This is especially the case in the spiritual world. The jinn are made from a smokeless Fire, the humans are made from Earth (Teen), and the soul (ruH) comes from the word for Wind (reeH). The Throne of Allah was settled upon Water (11:7), until that water was separated into the heavens and earth. The angels are from light (Noor, a word related to Nar).

    Allah does not raise a prophet except that he speaks the language of his people. He may have used these literary devices to explain a realm that is ultimately beyond our understanding (ghayb). The Quran is a book that needs to be intelligible to people, especially when speaking on the unseen and unknown.

    While the universe is simply not made up of H2O, the image of Water as a fluid, clear, shapeless structure is befitting to understanding the world. In physics, the concept of fields (gravitational, spatial) operate largely on fluid mechanics. “Water” is a chaotic substance that was then categorized, compartmentalized and distinguished into the world we know today.

    Similarly, a simple sample of the water (saliva) in your body can create an entire profile of who you are: your DNA, and therefore, your family lineage, your appearance, your susceptibility to diseases, and even parts of your personality.

    There are some things that are beyond literal and metaphorical. The dichotomy of literal and metaphorical is sometimes not just inaccurate, but harmful to our readings of scripture.

    لالا کن لالا ای گل صحرا
    چطور سر کنم بی تو امشب را؟!
    لالا کن لالا, عزیزم حالا
    با اون دو بالِت, میری اون بالا
    برو فرشته! جات تو بهشته

    St. 12 part 4

    By the high sky where there are glorious huge palaces;
    By the promised day when the creatures will meet the Creator;
    By night traveller, that shiny star whose glaring light cleaves the dark.
    By all of these that there is a protector, assigned by God, for every soul.

    قسم به آسمان بلندی که دارای کاخهای عظیم و با شکوه است.
    قسم به روز موعود، به روز دیدار که وعده گاه خلایق است.
    قسم به مسافر شب، به آن ستاره درخشانی که نور خیره کننده اش تاریکیها را میشکافد
    قسم به همه اینان که هر شخصی را از طرف خداوند مراقب و نگهبانی است

    Finally, the promised day came.
    Hoopoe again came and sat behind the window. This time, it held a leaf of ziziphus in its beak.

    After some hours, I noticed it and opened the window. Hoopoe entered and sat on the table. I patted it and said: What a beautiful bird!
    Then I went to bring food and water for it.
    But hoopoe didnt eat or drink anything.
    I touched the statue and it started singing. I thought hoopoe would like the song but it didnt.

    Instead, it put the leaf on the table and looked at me expecting me to remember something.
    I said: Maybe you need some leaves! There are many trees is my garden. You can use their leaves as much as you wish
    Hoopoe's eyes filled with tears for it realized that I didnt remember it and ziziphus tree.
    For a few moments, it remained silent. Then it flew toward the window and left the house.
    I stood by the window and watched hoopoe flying in the sky.
    Hoopoe flew high and high.
    I said: I wish I could fly like it.
    Suddenly I remembered that once I had 2 wings which I lost after my fall on the earth; I remembered the seventh heaven, the angels, God, banishment from paradise and my rendezvous.
    There was not much time... I left that mansion quickly.

    But when I reached there, it was late.
    The sun had already set. I had lost the best opportunity in my life.
    I sat under ziziphus tree and cried. Hoopoe came. I patted it and said:
    You, kind bird, you tried your best. Alas! I remembered too late!
    Gabriel appeared and said:....
    ....
    ...
    .....

    Whether you are close to the sun or far from it, its light and warmth dont change. But the closer you are to the sun, the more you benefit from its warmth...
    God is source of mercy and compassion; How much you benefit from his mercy depends on how close you are to him.
    The path which Satan and his friends follow, leads to the darkness. The more they proceed, the darker the path will get. And finally they reach total darkness. They will go astray so much that even if they want to return, it will be very difficult for them.
    You are free to choose your path. A path leads to light, to magnificence and grandeur. And a path leads to disgrace, aberrance and regret. You can choose: ascending to A'laa Eleein or descending to Asfal al-Saffelin!*

    Gabriel was about to leave. But before he did, he turned his face to me and said: Angels told me that they missed Human a lot. They are still awaiting you. What about you, Human? Do you still remember them?!
    ...
    ....
    ...

    The stars were shining in the dark sky. And it meant that there was still hope. Because the stars are torches of the angels who had been waiting in the heavens for many centuries to welcome those who travelling to paradise.
     
    * A'laa Eleein: the uppermost place in the heavens اعلی علیین
    Asfal al-Safelin: the lowermost place in the hell اسفل السافلین

    "Read in the Name of Your Lord Who Created You"
    And you decided to create me. One morning, in the eternity, you began. You mixed the soil with the water, added the spirit and thereby created Human.

    You, without paying attention to the complaints, chose me as your favourite and ordered everyone to prostrate himself before me. And I, filled with joy and pride, watched the huge crowd of prostrators.
    You accommodated me in your paradise and how beautiful it was!
    You ordered everyone to be at my service and take care of me lest any scratch, though very small, should appear on my face; lest I should feel a slight tinge of sadness.
    By the way, did I know what grief was?! I lived happily in your paradise and didn't know the meaning of trouble and hardship, grief and distress. I didnt know that I had a jealous enemy who couldnt tolerate me being joyful and happy.
    He- your curse be upon him- was called Satan. He knew that I was an inexprienced naive person and could easily be deceived.
    So he began...and finally deceived me and then, you got angry. In paradise, you had given me everything but I was driven by greed and disobeyed you.
    On that day, I was summoned to the court. In the court, you reprimanded me. And I had no excuse. I was extremely frightened. I had never seen your wrath!
