Whether it comes from a despotic sovereign or an elected president, from a murderous general or a beloved leader, I see power as an inhuman and hateful phenomenon. I have always looked on disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born.

The Serenity Prayer :)

is the common name for an originally untitled prayer by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr(1892–1971). It has been

adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous and other

twelve-step programs.

The best-known form is:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I

cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.

Our prayers in the Quran are better. Don't think that's useful here.

CLynn must have watched the PBS program on J.D.Salinger --the man who wrote "Snatcher in the Rye"

 

Greetings hasanhh,

 

It's a poem shared by one of my online blog friends.

I've never read Catcher in the Rye and I didn't see the program on J.D. Salinger, although it sounds as though it would be interesting.

 

Salaam,

CLynn

“Oh My Lord! grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things that I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

خداوندا به من آرامشی عطا کن که بپذیرم آنچه نمی‌توانم تغییر دهم و جراتی که تغییر دهم آنچه را که می‌توانم و علمی که تفاوت این دو را دریابم”

Ali Shariati

"Do not call onto any beings other than Allaah. These are capable of neither benefit nor harm. To do so is therefore guilty of wrongdoing. When Allaah inverts you with an affliction, none can remove it except Him."
[The Qur'aan 10:106-107]

Greetings Marbles,

 

I'd like a thumbs down, or an 'unlike' button for that one.  Wouldn't you agree?

Salaam,

CLynn

 

Yes, but if you 'liked' it, you'd be actually saying you 'unlike' the message in the quote.

I think this narrated solves some our problems about Dua and it can answer some questions about ' what does it happen when we say dua?'

 

قال الامام زین العابدین المومن مـن دعائه على ثلاث:اما ان يدخر له و اما ان يعجل له واما ان يدفع عنه بلاء يريد ان يصيبه

 

 

 Imam Zayn al-Abidin (AS) said, ‘There are three types of outcome from a 

believer’s supplication: either it is stored away for him for later, or it is hastened 

for him, or it repels a calamity waiting to afflict him.’[Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 280]

ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ في صِفَةِ المَلائكَةِ ـ: وإنَّهُم عَلى مَكانِهِم مِنكَ ، ومَنزِلَتِهِم عِندَكَ، واستِجماعِ أهوائهِم فيكَ ، وكَثرَةِ طاعَتِهِم لَكَ ، وقِلَّةِ غَفلَتِهِم عَن أمرِكَ ، لَو عايَنوا كُنهَ ما خَفِيَ عَلَيهِم مِنكَ لَحَقَّروا أعمالَهُم ، ولَزَرَوا عَلى أنفُسِهِم ، ولَعَرَفوا أ نَّهُم لَم يَعبُدوكَ حَقَّ عِبادَتِكَ ، ولَم يُطيعوكَ حَقَّ طاعَتِكَ . 

 

Imam Ali  (as) said in his description of the angels, ‘They are in their own places [distinct] from You, [and yet] their positions are near You. Their desires are all concentrated on You, their worship for You is abundant, and their neglect of Your command is little. If they were to witness the essence of what is hidden about You from them, they would regard their deeds insignificant, they would reproach themselves and would realize that they have not worshipped You as You deserve to be worshipped, and have not obeyed You as You deserve to be obeyed.

[Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 109]

With Lenin it was always a substantial commitment. I always have a certain admiration for people who are aware that somebody has to do the job. What I hate about these liberal, pseudo-left, beautiful soul academics is that they are doing what they are doing fully aware that somebody else will do the job for them.

"Man, who possesses the higher degrees of perception and regards himself as the source of all perception, has wished to deny all perception to other orders of being. It is true, of course, that those orders do not possess the same high degree of perception, but we, too, are veiled from full perception of the truth." (Imam Khomeini)
