Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]

Recommended Posts

Some people in the US, from political figures to Hollywood actors, are criticizing Trump for his immoral remarks, as if they are living in a society full of Ayatullah Bahjat's and Ayatullah Hassanzadeh Amoli's!

Isn't the US cradle of Pornography Industry? Aren't half, almost or even maybe full naked women in the public or some specific areas a not uncommon thing in the US? Aren't the most hideous, inhumane and immoral acts such as sodomy legalized and proudly considered as a right in the eyes of many people there? Aren't Immoral acts in all/almost all the American movies an undetachable part? And more and worse than them all, aren't these things common and regarded as value and criteria for becoming more civilized?

If the answers for the questions above are positive, so in this degraded culture isn't Trump the best, the most civilized and the most valuable person?

Obviously I am not as learned or knowledgeable as Sayed Imam Khamene'i, but I do believe that we Muslims can differ with their scholars in certain areas.

Zubayr ibn al-Awwam, may Allah give him what he deserves, was absolutely sinning when leading an army against Amir al-Mu'mineen, but he also showed his repentance by leaving the battlefield when the Imam reminded him of the Prophet's words. Al-Zubayr just didn't have the sidq/baseerah to fight on the Imam's side like Hurr b. Yazid did in Karbala. Leaving the battlefield altogether, and being killed on his way dissociating from the fitnah he created, should not make him deserving of la'nah like most Shi'a do.

Zubayr ibn al-Awwam showed that he was different from certain caliphs of Islam, who wronged the Ahlul Bayt and did not regret their actions in any way. 

It is also important to note that in the battle of Uhud, Talha b. 'UbaydAllah and Zubayr b. al-Awwam were both present fighting alongside Imam 'Ali while the rest of the companions had fled. Al-Zubayr also received praise from the Prophet on several occasions.

My point is that it is wrong for Shi'a to perform tabarra on so many Muslims who were neutral towards Imam Ali vs. the usurpers. Most Shi'a do tabarra on them just to show their staunch support for 'Ali, even though it is unfair.

If someone is neutral, it means he isn't helping and defending the right front, and when someone isn't among the haq front, "so what is there, after the haq (Truth), except zalal (aberrance)? How then are you turned away?" [10:32]

 

فماذا بعد الحق الا الضلال فانی تصرفون

As they say, if you are not defending the Imam and Leader of Haq, then it makes no difference whether you are at the table of sharaab or sajadah of prayer.

This neutrality –for lack of a better word, actually there is no such thing as neutrality- always has been a good path-paver for the crimes of the batil front. The worse comes to worst, when you are an elite, effective and famous individual.

@kamyar those things are the exception not the rule. In general American society is quite conservative, though the media would like everyone to think otherwise. Trump knows nothing about normal people. He's been surrounded by wealth and media all his life and thinks that is normal. Apparently wealth is now classified as a mental illness because allegedly it causes people to become unaware of the difference between right and wrong. 

I've never seen naked people walking around and I've never seen pornography, and I've lived here all my life. I think the people who want that have to go looking and it's not socially acceptable so they have to conceal their actions.

Thoughts:

I'm wondering what to read next. I haven't touched a book for over a month as life and family came in the way.

51TjgOFdVHL.jpg

In "The Mountain People," Colin The Forest People" - describes the dehumanization of the Ik, African tribesmen who in less than three generations have deteriorated from being once-prosperous hunters to scattered bands of hostile, starving people whose only goal is individual survival.

Forbidden by the Ugandan government to hunt game in the Kidepo National Park, the Ik are compelled to farm and forage for food in the barren mountain heights adjoining the park. Drought and starvation have made them a strange and heartless people, mistrustful of their own kind - their days occupied with constant competition and the search for food. Isolated from one another, each family is separated in its own compound within the village's fortress walls. And each family is itself divided: husbands, wives, and children remorselessly avoid helping one another find food. 

Sad, disturbing, and eloquently written, "The Mountain People" is a moving meditation on human nature, our capacity for goodness, and the fragility of human society. It is a brilliant, modern classic of anthropology.

Not simply a Sunni majority area, it's a terror-infested one too.

What courage, what nerves... This makes me real happy.

Sister @notme, undoubtedly there are many people living in the US who value modesty and morality, and care for humanity. But these people should be more active and effective. Because if we look at the results like the one below- if it's true, or even 10 percent of it- what the trend in the American culture suggests is even truly more alarming than the current situation.

gallup-morality.png

 

And yes, Media… no one can deny how some specific individuals, the awlia of the taghout, The Rebellious Leaders through media have affected the society. Whenever I read the following verses of Quran, they remind me of these individuals and how they mislead the society:

And those who disbelieve say, "We will never believe in this Qur'an nor in that before it." But if you could see when the wrongdoers are made to stand before their Lord, refuting each other's words... Those who were oppressed will say to those who were arrogant, "If not for you, we would have been believers."

Those who were arrogant will say to those who were oppressed, "Did we avert you from guidance after it had come to you? Rather, you were criminals."

Those who were oppressed will say to those who were arrogant, "Rather, [it was your] conspiracy of night and day when you were ordering us to disbelieve in Allah and attribute to Him equals." But they will [all] confide regret when they see the punishment; and We will put shackles on the necks of those who disbelieved. Will they be recompensed except for what they used to do?

[34:31-33]

------

So here, there is a great responsibility for vigilant people to take that has not been done so far properly.

You can get on the TV, InterNet, or radio 24/7 all day and night every day and night and listen to folks who expound their version of modesty, morality, etc.

You can also trip over them and their signs on the street corners, trying to get into the market , trying to get into the hospital...or various other places.

It's freedom of speech. :)

Ahh, on a day like today they took you away. Returned to what you once were, the veil revealed onto who you are.

When I do a good act today it is you. When I stand in prayer, you are the imam. When I keep away from hurting another, you are the one who clasps my lips together. If I shed a tear for my Imam, it is you who is reciting the maqtal. All good I have is from you.

How I wish for one last embrace! One last chance for a kick-about! A game of tennis! A wrestle! Just a chance to kiss that beautiful forehead!

Alas, happiness is not happiness without your beloved by your side. Baba, I miss you.

I went outside before sunrise to do some work. Best day all year. It was so nice last night that l fixed a meal, went outside into the yard and ate by the Moon's light at 0200.

Got my trees cut out and finished before 1400.

A good day so far, inshallah.

Reminds me of something my Dad use to say: Once people lose their sense of physical well-being then everything else goes with it. In the 1960s, too.

Look how the USA has changed since drug use became pervasive in the early 1970s.

Writing and poetry is an excellent outlet for any difficulties we experience. I find that reaching into the depths of the imagination -letting ones heart out- is one of the most beautiful ways to bond with those we love.

May Allah accept your duas, and protect your families iA.

@Pearl178

Its not really day to day conversational farsi, hmm I dont think my farsi is good enough to make a proper translation.

But iA brother @kamyar or @baradar_jackson can translate it good?

 

Salam IbnSina Jan. I have translated it, but maybe someone else can translate it better than me:

«ای پادشه خوبان، داد از غم تنهایی / دل بی‌تو به جان آمد، وقت است که بازآیی» (حافظ)

 O' the king of the good people, Ah (sigh)! This agony of loneliness/ heart reached the end; it's the time to return 

بزن ای آه غمگین، نفسی بانگ «یا حق» / قفس سینه بشکن، بزن آهنگ «یا حق»

O' the sad whine, cry out Ya Haq/ break the chest's cage, sing the song of Ya Haq
 

الله الله، کو صبح فتح و ظفر؟ / کی می‌آید پایان رنج بشر؟

Allah! Allah! Where is the dawn of victory and triumph? / When does the mankind's affliction come to an end?
 

عالم در شور و نواست، انسان بر طیر فناست / یک سو طغیان ستم، یک سو آهنگ بلاست

The universe is in passion and phrensy, Human is on the verge of collapse/somewhere outburst of oppression, somewhere melody of sedition

نه خروش آوایی، نه امیدی از جایی / یا رب دل‌ها خون شد، از غربت و تنهایی

No roaring of songs, no hopes from anywhere/ O' Lord, hearts have become full of agony, for alienation and loneliness


ستم از حد بیرون شد، غم دل‌ها افزون شد / رفت از عالم یکسر، آرام و شکیبایی

Cruelty is at an all-time high, the agony of hearts has increased/ tranquility and patience have left the world

بنگر خصم سرکش را، بنگر دود و آتش را / یک سو ذبح انسان را، یک سو مسخ ایمان را

 See the rebellious enmity, see the smoke and the fire/ somewhere the slaughter of human, somewhere metamorphosis of faith

الله الله! فریاد از جور زمان / الله الله! فریاد از اهرمنان

Allah! Allah! Ah this time of cruelty/ Allah! Allah! Ah these Demons


در گمراهی سرگردان مانده بشر / بی‌رونق شد ایمان از فتنه و شر

In aberrance, the mankind is stranded/ the faith has become sluggish due to sedition and evilness  
 

وای از روزگار تنهایی / یارب کو دم مسیحایی

Ah this time of loneliness/ O' Lord! Where is the lifesaving respiration?


بزن ای دل آب دعا، مگر آید روح بقا؛ / ناجیِ عالم کو؟ ناجی عالم کو؟

 O' heart, pray for coming of spirit of immortality/ where is the world's savior? Where is the world's savior?

بگذر از دام عصیان، بشکن کابوس طغیان / بنگر هر سوی عالم، چه رسد بر جان انسان؟

Pass the trap of transgression, break the nightmare of outburst/ look at every corner of the world, what is happening to the human?

با ثارالله فریادی تازه بزن / همچون زینب، کاخ ظالم بشکن

With tharallah (Imam Husain) whoop again/ like Zainab, break the oppressor's palace
مردان شهر دعا! یاران خون خدا! / منجی خود منتظر است، امروز ماییم و شما

O' Men of the city of supplication! Followers of the Blood of God (tharallah, Imam Husain)! / Savior himself is waiting; today it's our and your time

دل اگر ایمان دارد، به خدا دل بسپارد / می‌آید در میدان، مردانه و شیدایی

If the heart has faith, it will rely on Allah/ and it will come to the battlefield, manly and passionately


دلِ آگه می‌داند، به کجا قرآن خواند / بر نی باید خواندن، نی خلوت و تنهایی

The wise heart knows where to read Quran/it should be on Ney* (reed), the Ney of solitude and loneliness

هر روز، روز عاشورا، هر روز بانگ واویلا / عالم از بلا پر شد، خاک از کربلا پر شد

 Every day, day of Ashura; every day, cry of waweila/ the universe was filled with trial, the soil became full of Karbala

خبر از کوفه رسد، همه مشتاق حضور / همه سرمست طلب، همگی طالب نور

The news comes from Kufa, everyone is eager for participation/ everyone is passionate for request, everyone is aspirant for nour (light)


الله الله، وای از پیمان‌شکنان / تنها مانده، در میدان مرد زمان

Allah Allah, Ah these traitors/ the man of time (Imam Husain) is left alone in the battlefield


آمد با دعوتشان، ای وای از بیعتشان / تنها شد روز نبرد، دنیا شد دشمن مرد

He came by their invitation, Woe to their allegiances/ He became alone in the day of battle, the world became enemy of man

سخن از ایمان‌ها شد، سخن از پیمان‌ها شد / کوفی ماند و پیمان، با آن همه رسوایی

It comes to faiths, it comes to promises/ Kufi and the promises, with all those disgraces


شه خوبان تنها شد، به سر نی سرها شد / زینب ماند و زینب، با آن سر سودایی

The king of good people is left alone, heads were put on the spears/ Zainab remained and just Zainab, with that igneous head

نور از نیزه‌ها سر زد، آه از سینه‌ها سر زد / بانگ نینوا زینب، تیغ کربلا زینب

 Light came out of spears, whine came out of chests/ Call of Neinava, Zainab; blade of Karbala, Zainab

دل غمگین بشارت، غم عالم سرآید / برود این زمستان، خبر دیگر آید

O' the sorrowful heart, glad tiding! The sorrow of the universe will end/ this winter will pass, another news will arrive
الله الله می‌آید فصل امید / بر تاریکی می‌تازد صبح سپید

Allah Allah, the season of hope will come/ the white dawn will defeat the darkness
شب را صبحی دگر است، یاران وقت سحر است / برخیر ای اهل وفا، برخیز ای روح رها

Night has another morning; O' companions, it's the dawn time/ stand up, O' people of loyalty, stand up, O' people of free spirit

جور دیگر باید دید، دیده‌ها را باید شست / تا کی جنگ و نفرت، این دوزخ هر جایی

It should be seen differently, the eyes should be washed/ till when war and hatred, this hell in every place

زیر باران باید رفت، کینه‌ها را باید شست / باید پایان یابد این برزخ تنهایی

We should go under the rain, rancor should be washed/ it should finish, this limbo of loneliness

برخیز تا به هم سازیم، از عشق عالمی سازیم / آن روز نوبهار آید، آن روز شهسوار آید

Stand up to make it with each other, to make a world from love/ that day a new spring will come, that day Horseman (Imam Mahdi) will come

It's freedom of speech. :)

Freedom of speech, what it means, how it should be implemented in the society, how and where it's useful, and how and where it can be harmful, the difference between responsible freedom of speech and irresponsible freedom of speech, the difference between freedom and Insouciance/nonchalance and how some specific people for some specific purposes for decades have made fool of the masses, not just in the US but also in the rest of the world, that America enjoys a good form of freedom all are things that can be discussed.

However, at this point one can say if this promiscuity, this abnormality, these sexual harassments – even male on male!- these children being born out of wedlock, ridiculously trying to change the meaning and nature of marriage, these abortions, this collapse of family and household structure, violence and vandalism in places such as schools, these so many children living in home without a father, this percentage of one person households, these several tens of millions infected by sexually transmitted disease, this rate of using illegal drugs and consumption of alcohol, and that a person like Trump* having first or second chance of becoming the president of a country etc etc are outcome of freedom of speech in the US, then either freedom of speech is not a good thing or the one is going on in the US isn't a good one.

*In fact when we say Trump is a corrupt person –corrupt in any sense- it doesn't mean other American politicians are good. Trump is Hillary Clinton and Hillary Clinton is Trump. The Yellow dog is the jackal's brother (a Persian proverb)! The difference between Trump and a person like Obama is that Trump is less hypocrite, and what makes "Trump becoming a president or even running for president" as symbol of corruption in the American society is that many people may not be able to see behind Obama's hypocrisy and as a result regard him as a peace-loving person, but Trump is shouting who he is. How can a person like him have a chance to run for the presidency and becoming president?

So there are things here to ponder upon seriously. Don't you agree?

There, there, Pearl178. Calm down.

However, at this point one can say if this promiscuity, this abnormality, these sexual harassments – even male on male!- these children being born out of wedlock, ridiculously trying to change the meaning and nature of marriage, these abortions, this collapse of family and household structure, violence and vandalism in places such as schools, these so many children living in home without a father, this percentage of one person households, these several tens of millions infected by sexually transmitted disease, this rate of using illegal drugs and consumption of alcohol, and that a person like Trump* having first or second chance of becoming the president of a country etc etc are outcome of freedom of speech in the US, then either freedom of speech is not a good thing or the one is going on in the US isn't a good one.

 

So there are things here to ponder upon seriously. Don't you agree?   

Yes....but The things you list are not or not solely the result of freedom of speech. They exist in countries with far less freedoms than here.

But my point in posting was that you said you  felt people of your opinions should be more energetic in getting their views out. People rail against homosexuality, drugs, drink, what have you ...day and night...all the time here... on all forms of media.

There is no restriction on them, or anyone else, so long as they do not do something that can be directly proven to cause harm. (There are some exceptions in schools and where children are concerned) 

That's why I'm a bit surprised that places like the UK ban folks for speech that would be debated, but allowed, over here ...and I have never figured out why France bans pieces of cloth.( Especially since my Dad while doing his time in the military was stopped  in France on his way to the Korean War and the women on the beaches in France even way back then were not too concerned about pieces of cloth at all, he said )

Freedom of speech is generally a necessary thing for a healthy society.imho.

Thoughts:

I want to learn this language. Beautiful script <3

ესეიგი, დავასკვენი რომ უმეტესად ისინი გადარია (მცირე გამონაკლისების გარდა) ვისაც მანამდე არ ჰქონდა სხვა ანტი-უტოპიური ნაწარმოებები წაკითხული და გული გახეთქილი  მომეწონა ძალიან, მაგრამ ფარენჰეიტი მაინც უფრო მიყვარს და მემგონი ჰაქსლიც უფრო მომეწონება. ზოგ მომენტში მეტად დამაჯერებელი რომ ყოფილიყო უფრო მომეწონებოდა :-? როცა ეს წიგნი დაიწერა რეალური ჩანდა ალბათ ასეთი სამყარო, მაგრამ ახლა მე სხვა სტილით, უფრო არაპირდაპირი და ნაკლებად შესამჩნევი კონტროლი უფრო დამაჯერებლად მეჩვნება

^ Georgian, eh? I've never seen this alphabet before. You are right, it is beautiful. Do you have an audio of what it sounds like? What language group is it? What is it similar to?

I used Google translate.

This is Mkhedruli script. Georgian itself is thought to have shared a common South Caucasian language. Remarkable that a small language surrounded by larger ones (Russian, Turkish etc) has retained a very independent script and lexicon. 

A Georgian friend linked me to this recording of a poem by Galaktion Tabidze "Me and a Night"

@Marbles wow, it does sound beautiful, not similar sounding to any other language that I've heard. Nice reading too.

To me it sounded like an incantation from a 1930s horror movie with appropriate pictures.
