lihat sabar, young padawan... Do not make me take a Jedi stance and draw out my Jedi Light Sabre Kris and wave it about menacingly!
The reason I was disappointed in the behavior of the Serbs (and not much more with the Montenegrens, Croats, Macedonians) was that I had such high regard for their rich, ancient cultural history. They had greed but no need to harm their neighbors.
of the innocent on all sides who died, al fatiha ~ blessed and rest in peace
for those interested, this is one path one might take, among many equally valid:
however, being, of nor calif, my singular responsibilities differ from imams ~ an example is that i don't count prayers, as there are never enough for those who lead, nor do i count the footsteps nor swimming strokes or breaths taken and given.
i do not support the nation of israel,
i do not support the nation of palestine,
i do offer my whole hearted but just symbolic support to de` caffienate krislamarina caliphate of palesrael, in peace, via resource allocation, manufacturing, trade, technology, etc. as chief executive officer (ceo) of the non-profit corporate caliphate, pro the dream maker program in the form noted as 'dream stars & desert islands' (dsdi), once i've found a lady and married, insyaAllah. Until then, i can only watch the suffering in silence, since i cannot claim this position if i'm solo, sad to say. i lost `my' princess to an imam, which is why i do not follow or submit to the imam, though i do not oppose them; they have their duties, i have mine, alhamdulillah.
اهدِنَــــا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ ihdinā ṣ-ṣirāṭ al mustaqīm
guide us to the straight path ~ guide us along the arc of life
The Quran says:
“Let there be no compulsion in the religion: Clearly the Righteous Path is distinct from the crooked path.” (Quran 2:256)
The righteous or straight path is a smooth curvilinear arc, not jagged or crooked.
Of course, real life is bumpy, but the ideal is to go through it smoothly.
please note that straight = curved because earth is spherical in the space-time continuum, it is not a flat surface. an example of this, is the making of window glass: a puddle of molten glass must rest upon a puddle of molten tin, in order to have a consistent thickness, since both puddles, like the oceans follow the earth's curvature. in two dimensions (X, Y), the path is straight, in three dimensions (X, Y, Z) the path follows an arc, in four dimensions it follows an orbital cycle (X, Y, Z, T (T = Temporal)). life is fluid and therefore spherical and cyclical following planetary orbital seasons, through the temporal dimension of light years of time, not crystaline like a rock which cracks and erodes into alluvial fans or eluvium, therefore, the straight path is an arc, by definition. those who have been to the moon and outer space have verified this fact. earth is not flat land, it is curved. all paths are curvilinear made up of arcs. many do not understand this, and do not understand scientific theory of geology, ecology, biology, spatial geometry, etc. it is nature, it is the primal gift. sela. salud. salam. shalom.
