    Love and loyality in the old age 

    In 1912, the famed passenger liner the Titanic was sunk after hitting an iceberg. Hubbard

    Elbert Hubbard wrote of the disaster, singling out the story of Ida Straus, who as a woman was supposed to be placed on a lifeboat in precedence to the men, but she refused to board the boat: “Not I—I will not leave my husband. All these years we’ve traveled together, and shall we part now? No, our fate is one.”

    added subsequently his own stirring commentary:

    “Mr. and Mrs. Straus, I envy you that legacy of love and loyalty left to your children and grandchildren. The calm courage that was yours all your long and useful career was your possession in death. You knew how to do three great things—you knew how to live, how to love and how to die. One thing is sure, there are just two respectable ways to die. One is of old age, and the other is by accident. All disease is indecent. Suicide is atrocious. But to pass out as did Mr. and Mrs. Isador Straus is glorious. Few have such a privilege. Happy lovers, both. In life they were never separated and in death they are not divided.”

    Islam I love and Muslims I don’t! 

    Well, as you may have guessed from the title, again, it’s about Islam and Muslims.
    First, let’s introduce myself, even though I don’t have to .However, I find it better giving an idea of where I come from and what I stand for before getting into the point.
    Briefly, I am someone who was born to a Muslim family, all of whom are lovely practice, religious people and so do I, practice religious but not lovely, though.

    Secondly, I am here about to rebuke Muslims not Islam, so if you don’t like to be criticized you’d better stop reading. Believing that Islam is above all criticism, I firmly believe that Muslims aren’t. They are people like any other fellow human beings bound to make mistakes and do wrongs. In another words, they are fallible as all humans, who isn’t but God?

    In Islam we taught that religion, there, in God definition is “Islam” إن الدين عن الله الاسلام .

    Though I absolutely believe so, I also believe that Judaism, Christianity are part of it, otherwise, we wouldn’t have had to believe in God’s angels, books, messengers as it says in Qura’n
    آمَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللّهِ وَمَلآئِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لاَ نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ وَقَالُواْ سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ(285). سورة البقرة

    “The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.”

    To clarify what I have just said, here an example: let’s take the number “one” in English and “waheed” in Arabic, they are both entirely different from each other, they don’t have the same spelling, pronunciation. Yet, they are synonyms. Both of which are Numbers, can be added, subtracted, divided, and multiplied. Both have absolutely the same value.

    My main concern is “Certainty”, which we, Muslims, are so sure that we all right while everybody else is not. In the main time, Westerners when they challenge Islam, which I personally believe it’s their absolute right to do so; they tend to be blind about its virtue or mistakenly denying it altogether.

    Impartially speaking, we both Muslims and Non-Muslims should come to a compromise! Neither a compromise that lead to Muslim giving up their faith, that not what I meant at all, nor not to express their conventions or to Non-Muslims be less critics about Islam. What I mean is a compromise where Muslims believe in their divine message while not rejecting or denying others from having their own expressed.

    To be as Muslims welling to admit our faults and mistakes as they happen, because the only infallible is God himself, while Non-Muslims ought to be impartial in their critics. Not to take texts out of their contexts and blame Muslim on being the reasons of the world’s misery. As well as, they must differentiate between freedom of expression and crime of abuse and misleading.

    To a dead king, a king crowned 

    Well, “to a dead king, a king crowned” is a Spanish proverb. its origin is unknown or honestly speaking, I don’t know 😉 I haven’t done much research, to be perfectly clear :D. However, its meaning is profound and simple to guess at the same time.
    It says that everything is replaceable even the king and if I laterally explain it.

    It will be like that every king , governor, head of state, caliph or you name it will eventually  die ,and everything you have will one day finish  do you think people will mourn him/her? it might be. But they will do so for a very short period of time, having a new one stars his/her tenure.
    So bear in mind that everybody and everything is replaceable whether a king, a rag or cheap or valuable. It will come to an end.
