Lecture 5

The Comprehensiveness of the Holy Prophet’s Life- Part-29

Introduction:

Gentlemen! Every religion has shown to human beings how they could become worthy of achieving God’s love, and that usually meant following the good advice of the founder or the prophet of that particular religion.

But Islam has done still better. It presents the practical example of its Prophet to everyone. The means to receiving God’s love is through following His Prophet example in every undertaking of life. Therefore, Islam is based on two things: the word of God and its application as shown in the life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

The Two Sources of Islam

The word of God, or the Kitab means the Commandment of Allah revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), and Sunnah, the Arabic term stands for the holy Prophet’s practice. Literally, it means the ‘way”, therefore, Sunnah is the way how the Prophet lived following Allah’s Commands.

It is the practical example of the holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) that has been completely and fully preserved in the books of the Prophet’s traditions. In short, a Muslim’s success and spiritual fulfillment lies in following the holy Prophet’s Sunnah. People who follow a particular religion are never of the same type.

People are of different types:

Variety is the essence of life. Life goes on through cooperation between people of different dispositions, jobs and professions. The spectrum of life needs to have kings and presidents; the rulers and their obedient subjects; judges and courts to maintain law and order; army commanders to defend peace; the poor and the rich; pious men of God who spend whole nights in prayer or those who strive in His path spreading His message during the day; family and friends; merchants and businessmen and spiritual leaders.

In short, this world exists and goes on with the existence of all these different kinds of people. And all of them need a code, a discipline, a way of life to make them successful in their own field of activity and contribute to the total richness of human life. Islam calls upon all human beings to follow the Sunnah—the way of Allah’s Prophet (Peace be upon him).

It clearly means that it can offer practical examples to all kinds of people from the life of its Prophet (Peace be upon him). This very idea proves the comprehensiveness of the Prophet’s life which contains practical lessons and guidance for people in every walk of life. A ruler’s life cannot become a complete model for the ruled.

Who can be a ideal Model?

Similarly, a poor person’s life is not a complete and practical example which a wealthy person could follow. What is needed here is the universal example of the comprehensive life of the Prophet of Islam which, like a bouquet of flowers, contains all the different colours and shades of human life.

In addition to the variety of different classes of human beings, there is immense diversity in the actions of an individual human being in different situations. We walk about and sit down; we laugh and we cry; we put on and take off clothes; we give and we take; we learn and we teach; we kill and get killed; we save lives and we take lives; we eat and we feed; we do favours and we get favours; we sacrifice life and we rescue life; we worship and we do business; we become hosts and we become guests etc.

For all these actions, mundane or sublime, we need to have practical examples which could show us the best way of doing a thing in ever changing situations and varying conditions of life.

Pre-Sandy supermarket visit. Went to the supermarket for a few things at 8:15 this morning (to beat the crowds). Just to pick up a few things. Lines were already down the aisles. I read a similar story about the hardware store in OG, CT - and that was from yesterday morning. The owner said he had never seen anything like this 3 days before a storm. One guy bought over $300 worth of flashlingts and batteries. Maybe we just have more time to focus on this thing because it's a weekend. Good luck to all. Talk to you on Wednesday!

Colin Powell announced this morning he will again vote for President Obama, handing the president a rare endorsement from across the aisle and taking a few shots at Mitt Romney in the process.
"I’m not quite sure which Governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy," the former secretary of state said on CBS's This Morning. "I don’t sense he’s thought through these issues as thoroughly as he should have. He gets advice from his campaign staff that he then has to modify as he goes along."
Powell is not a conservative he is a cfr hack

Come now. Obama sponsored the attack on the WTC, among other things, killing 5000 people. If that does instantly catapult him into the media, I am not sure what else would.
Maybe killing 10,000 people?

Dont forget, it was designed and adopted before universal health care became a partisan issue nationwide.
Imagine if we could of adopted something similar to that nationwide a few years ago, before the republicans decided they didnt like Obama, and as a result declared health care a partisan issue. My guess is that they would of passed something VERY similar to ObamaCare.
What changed? The political atmosphere - not the content of the health plan.

Jealous don't be jealous you should see what holly Israel did to me. I'm breaking up with her, it wasn't her so much, it's her girl friends, they'll put anything over to try it on.
I'm so glad now I never gave in to her the first time we met.
If she comes by here please tell her I've gone home to live with my mother, and I think her girl friend was better.

rabbee: TheBoundries of G-D, never change. mo matter how much, you all try to mentally change them. but by the time G-D takes off for the day of rest, again here in TheTorah. there shall be no palestine state to mention. as your all fighting against G-D, shall continue to lose your own ground. because it is not really, yours to given and take.

sorry if your having a hard time, accepting what is physically happening by command of G-D actually is. the world is not happening, the way any of you say. but is happening TheWay G-D commands for TheTorah to happen.

when things appear to be going your way, you claim it is the will of all-h. but when G-D commands it to not happen, not of your way. you hypocrites, say it is ysrael's and the united states falt or someone elses. though it still be, commanded by G-D to happen. so you turn your self blinded eyes away, from the way it really is in TheHappening. so there is a great, great discrppancy in the way you want it to happen. and TheWay it is actually commanded to all happen.

rabbee: in a world that believes in G-D, here and now in TheTorah. there is no need for healthcare plans offered by the subtle beasts empowered by the evil appointed angels.

if G-D were to command peace on earth, and good health to all. there would not even be, the common cold plagues. but none of you or your grandmother, again wish to believe in G-D. so the beguiling systems of the devil, are yours to own.

you do not get perfect health, for your perfect disbelief of G-D. as i have told you all, the truth from THEM. even if your vanity, can't handle it.

You are tardy - I did all of that yesterday.

For 300 bucks you could buy a minigenerator to power your fridge and a few lights.

NWS is predicting 4-8 foot storm surges - thats pretty high but down from the record breaking 13 they were forcasting earlier.

I'll probably buy a new snow shovel tomorrow. Its time.
