What about #60

Being a muslim woman in the 21th century

We know that Islam is stigmatized by many people today, ignorance and fake news pushes them toward hatred. In some countries the way muslim women dress is a problem which turned out to be a political issue. In some countries the women wearing a hijab i.e veil, are refused entrance in some public place or schools. Even though the veil isn’t a law in Islam, it’s a choice, most women refuse to take it off. How could they take it off if the nuns still wear them? Let’s not forget that the veil was worn by Jews and the by Christians before being introduced in the muslim world.
To cut to the chase, what muslims are going through nowadays is what Catholics went through in the past century in the united states. They were persecuted , they were denied entrance in some places, they were beaten, they were pushed away from certain states which didn’t want them…. As protestants before them endured in Germany and France by the hands of Catholics, rivers of blood from both parties ended in the river La Seine, in Paris.
Some wild muslims believe that with violence they can obtain respect and peace, while some ferocious Christians believe that they can exterminate muslims from the face of the earth. Both are wrong. Hatred doesn’t get anywhere. But knowledge and good example does.

Speaking of which, as said in a previous post, the Quran isn’t a cosmopolitan magazine. It doesn’t teach us what to wear or how to fix our hairs. It is a book of knowledge and wisdom. The first word of the first sentence of the first chapter sent from God is “Read“. Yes, the word “Read“. To read is far more important than to drink or to sleep or to talk. To read means to get knowledge. Whatever the source is. To read is to know what other people learn, say, teach, work, how the sun has been created, how birds can fly, how Donald Trump became president, how dogs can smell your presence before you knock at the door, etc…. It is a valuable order that God asked us to do. Yet, in many muslim Asian and African countries women can’t read yet. What a shame! It’s not the religion’s fault, it’s the traditions. Women who are forced to marry someone who she’s never met; traditions. A woman who has to cover her whole face to go out; traditions. A woman who walks behind her husband; traditions….

I never wore a hijab, or dressed in an orthodox way. But I’m not a lesser believer.I’m a muslim woman and I know my rights as a Muslim, as a human being. As someone who has read the Old and New Testament, and I can assure you that the Quran has far more respect for women than the Bible does. Of course it’s not the Bible’s fault, as the Old testament and the Gospel came from God as much as the Quran has.
Let me give you this short tiny example, we all know the story of Joseph and his brothers don’t we?

Bible:
Genesis 37:9
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
Genesis 37:10
And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
Genesis 37:11
And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

Quran:
Joseph 12:4
When joseph said to his father: “Oh father! Verily I saw (in a dream) eleven stars and a sun and a moon, I saw them prostrating themselves to me”
Joseph 12:5
He (his father) said “O my son! relate not your vision to your brothers, lest they should arrange a plot against you. Verily Satan is to man an open enemy!”
Joseph 12:6
“Thus will your Lord chose you and teach you the interpretation of dreams, and perfect His favor on you and on the offspring of Jacob, as He perfected it on your fathers Abraham and Isaac afortime! Verily your Lord is All Knowing, All Wise!”

Muslims believe that the Bible came from God but we believe as well that the human hand has its share in it too.
For those of you who think that the Quran is a weird book that has no interest in women and that should be avoided, I would like to say: Read it.
It is the only way for you to judge and to get an opinion worthy of listening.

The Theory of Fate – Chapter 5/part 9

It will be only a single decree
The day when the horn will be blown and we shall gather them together while they will have turned blue on that day and will be whispering among themselves: you did not remain (in the graves) more than ten (days).

And (remember) the day when the heaven shall be rent asunder with clouds, and the angels shall be sent down, with a grand descending.

And when the trumpet is sounded, that day it will be a distressful day

And listen, the day when the caller will call from a place nearby

Surely the day of decision is an appointed time a day when the trumpet will be blown, and you will come in large groups and the heaven shall be opened, and it will become as gates and the mountains shall be moved away from their places and they will be as if they were a mirage

They wait only but a single shout which will size them while they are disputing then they will not be able to make bequest nor they will return to their family and the trumpet will be blown (2nd blow) and behold from the Graves they will come out quickly to their Lord

How will you do then, if you disbelieve, guard yourselves against a day which will turn the children’s hair grey
When the order will come the horn will be blown,  but the thing is that at first I thought that this loud sound would come from the supervolcano but a lot worst than the Krakatoe volcano did. But then I changed my mind when I read this verse And listen, the day when the caller will call from a place nearby. This verse is speaking of a creature who calls. It will be such a loud sound that it will be able to kill all of us instantly they will not be able to make bequest nor they will return to their family. Actually it is normal that a really loud sound kills someone:

Can sound kill you? The short answer is “yes” — and, rather shockingly, the European Space Agency says that it now has such a sonic weapon in its arsenal that, if it was so inclined, could kill you. For the long answer, read on.

The question is, is 154 decibels enough to kill you? In all honesty, probably not — unless, perhaps, you were stuck with your head inside the horn for a prolonged period. 150 decibels is usually considered enough to burst your eardrums, but the threshold for death is usually pegged at around 185-200 dB. A passenger car driving by at 25 feet is about 60 dB, being next to a jackhammer or lawn mower is around 100 dB, a nearby chainsaw is 120 dB. Generally, 150 dB (eardrum rupture) is only achieved if you stand really close to a jet aircraft during take-off or you’re near an explosive blast.

 If you actually wanted to intentionally kill someone with a sonic weapon, there isn’t a whole lot of research on how you would actually go about doing it. The general consensus is that a loud enough sound could cause an air embolism in your lungs, which then travels to your heart and kills you. Alternatively, your lungs might simply burst from the increased air pressure. (Acoustic energy is just waves of varying sound pressure; the higher the energy, the higher the pressure, the louder the sound.) In some cases, where there’s some kind of underlying physical weakness, loud sounds might cause a seizure or heart attack — but there’s very little evidence to suggest this.

 Perhaps more significantly, though, it’s important to note that a sonic weapon doesn’t have to be lethal or incredibly loud to be effective. High-intensity ultrasonic sound (generally anything above 20KHz) can cause physical damage. Some very low frequencies (infrasound) can apparently cause your eyeballs to vibrate, making it very hard to see. Targeted “sonic bullets” that cause localized pain (or simply burst your eardrums) is probably enough to immobilize most non-action-hero humans.

 When the heaven shall be opened and becomes as gates, that’s not something we can see with our present eyes. There are two things which might turn the childrens’s hair grey. Either the sun’s Uv’s or the volcanes ashes.

Tomorrow as you might know is “Around a cup Of Tea” but there will also be the Conclusion of The Theory Of Fate

Guess what ?

Guess where I went today?

I went to a cemetery. I was looking for someone I wanted to meet for a long time. Jules Verne. 

Today I was in Amien, where he spent most of his life, he was buried In La Madeleine cemetery.

As this cemetery is very big and has too many trees (I would say almost a forest) it wasn’t easy to locate his tomb. After searching a while I had to ask where his grave was but I was told that I came in the wrong season as part of his grave has been covered with a tarpaulin. After all the trouble I had to get here I wasn’t going to turn back just because of a tarpaulin. Well…. I’ve made my way to his grave, and here are the pictures. The last one I found it online just to show you how it should have been. 

It was covered for winter but i uncover it.
