Holy Instructions From the Prophet

” Death is no enemy of man; it is a friend who, when the work of life is done, just cuts the cord that binds the human boat to earth, that it may sail on smoother seas.”

 

Religion

1. There is but one Allah, the author, the creator, the governor of the world; almighty , eternal, and incomprehensible.

2. The sun is not Allah, though his noblest image. He enlighteneth the world with his brightness; his warmth giveth life to the products of the earth. Admire him as the creature, the instrument of Allah, but worship him not.

3. To the one who is supreme, most wise and beneficent, and to Him alone, belong worship, adoration, thanks giving and praise.

4. Who hath stretched forth the heavens with His hands, who hath described with his finger the courses of stars.

5. Who setteth bounds to the ocean, that it cannot pass; and saith unto the stormy winds: “Be still.”

6. Who shaketh the earth, and the nations tremble; who dareth His lightnings, and the wicked are dismayed.

7. Who calleth forth worlds by the words of His mouth; who smiteth with His arm, and they sink into nothing.

8. O reverence the majesty of the Omnipotent; and tempt not His anger, lest thou be destroyed.

9. The providence of Allah is ever all His works; He ruleth and directeth with infinite wisdom.

10. He hath instituted laws for the government of the world; He hath wonderfully varied them in all beings; and each, by his nature conformeth to His will.

11. In the depth of His mind, He revolveth all knowledge; the secrets of futurity lie open before Him.

12. The thoughts of thy heart are naked to His view; He knoweth thy determination before they are made.

13. With respect to His prescience there is nothing contingent; with respect to his providence there is nothing accidental.

14. Wonderful is He in all His ways; His counsels are inscrutable; the manner of His knowledge transcendeth thy conception.

15. Pay therefore to His wisdom, all honor and veneration; and bow down thyself in humble and submissive obedience to His supreme discretion. 16. The Father is gracious and beneficent; He hath created the world in mercy and love.

17. His creatures of His hand declare His goodness, and their enjoyments speak of His praise; He clothed them with beauty, He supporteth them with food, He preserveth them with pleasure, from generation to generation.

18. If we lift up our eyes to the heavens, His glory shineth forth; if we cast them down on the earth, it is full of His goodness; the hills and the valleys rejoice and sing; fields, rivers, and woods resound His praise.

19. But thee, He hath distinguished with peculiar favor; and exalted thy station above all creatures.

20. But thee, He hath embued thee with reason, to maintain thy dominion; he hath fitted thee with language, to improve thy society; and exalted thy mind with the powers of meditation, to contemplate and adore His inimitable perfections.

21. And in the laws He hath ordained as the rule of life, so kindly hath He united thy duty to thy nature that obedience to His precepts is happiness to thyself.

22. O praise His goodness with songs of thanksgiving, and meditate in silence on the wonders of His love; let thy heart overflow with gratitude and acknowledgment, let the language of thy lips speak praise and adoration, let the actions of thy life show thy love to His law.

23. Allah is just and righteous, and will judge the earth with equity and truth.

24. Hath He established his laws in goodness and mercy, and shall He not punish the transgressors thereof?

25. O think not, bold men, because thy punishment is delayed, that the arm of Allah is weakened; neither flatter thyself with hopes that He winketh at thy doings.

26. His eye pierceth the secrets of every heart, and He rememebereth them forever; He respecteth not the persons or the stations of men.

27. The high and the low, the rich and the poor, the wise and the ignorant, when the soul hath shaken off the cumbrous shackles of this mortal life, shall equality receive, from the sentence of just and everlasting retribution, according to their works.

28. Then shall the wicked tremble and be afraid; but the heart of the righteous shall rejoice in His judgements.

29. O fear Allah, therefore, all the days of thy life, and walk in the paths which He hath opened before thee. Let prudence admonish thee, let temperance restrain, let justice guide thy hand, benevolence warm thy heart, and gratitude to Heaven inspire thee with devotion. These shall give thee happiness in thy present state, and bring thee to the mansions of eternal felicity in the paradise of Allah.

TRYING TO GET SOBER?

NIH OFFERS TOOL TO LOCATE ALCOHOLISM

HELP

By LAURAN NEERGAARD
Oct. 03, 2017

https://www.apnews.com/a8dd5bcd7b7141e884178e6ed71b6d09 Link copied!

WASHINGTON (AP) — The phone calls come — from fellow scientists and desperate strangers — with a single question for the alcohol chief at the National Institutes of Health: Where can my loved one find good care to get sober?

Tuesday, the government is releasing a novel online tool to help — directories of alcohol treatment providers paired with key questions patients should ask for a better shot at high-quality care.

Most people think treatment is detox for 28 days or Alcoholics Anonymous. There’s a vast in-between,” said George Koob, director of NIH’s National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

More than 15 million adults in the U.S. have what’s called alcohol use disorder, meaning they either misuse or are addicted to alcohol, and fewer than 10 percent get treatment, according to federal estimates.

Many who do get treated don’t receive quality care that best fits their needs, Koob said. He ordered development of the Alcohol Treatment Navigator after realizing if medical professionals were confused, families must be lost.

“It’s the hardest thing, navigating how do you find treatment,” agreed Linda Rosenberg, president of the nonprofit National Council for Behavioral Health. She wasn’t involved with the tool but praised NIAAA for developing it. “It’s desperately needed.”

Finding good care for alcohol problems can be confusing. The National Institutes of Health’s Alcohol Treatment Navigator is an online tool that offers a range of options _ and key questions patients should ask as they decide what’s the best fit. (Oct. 3)

The tool can’t solve issues of affordability or accessibility. Insurance coverage varies, and some parts of the country have shortages of providers that may leave patients traveling or turning to telemedicine, Rosenberg cautioned.

The Navigator offers a step-by-step guide to assessing additional options beyond the well-known AA and detox. First, it links to existing directories of thousands of board-certified addiction doctors or psychiatrists, accredited alcohol treatment centers and licensed therapists, searchable by ZIP code. Licensing and accreditation information mark an initial filter.

 

Next, the NIH defined five signs of quality to check:

—Credentials. For example, look for a therapist who holds at least a master’s degree and has specialized training in addiction treatment, the tool advises.

—A comprehensive assessment. Providers can use a battery of tests to determine the type and severity of alcohol disorders.

 

—Customized treatment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, Koob stressed.

—Evidence-based practices. NIH wants patients to consider scientifically proven options, including behavioral therapies and three FDA-approved medications.

—Continuing recovery support. “It’s not just an acute disorder,” said Lori Ducharme, a NIAAA specialist who led the Navigator’s development. “You want someone who will stick with you for the long-term.”

How do you know if a potential provider meets those quality indicators?

“You need to call them and ask them questions to see if they’ll be the right fit for you,” Ducharme said.

The Navigator provides a script, lists of questions targeted to each type of provider plus an explanation of why each question is important and what answer to listen for.

For example, addiction is a disease, not a weakness, so watch out for providers who use stigmatizing language such as “drunk,” the tool advises. And if a provider automatically dismisses medication, that’s a warning sign about not practicing evidence-based care.

What Shall we call the Slaves?

John Ruskin · 1902
And thus the principles of beautiful speech have all been fixed by sincere and kindly speech. On the laws which have been determined by sincerity, false speech, apparently beautiful, may afterwards be constructed …

MHK Chapter XXXIV

Holy Instructions From the Prophet

Sincerity

1. O thou who are enamored with the beauty of Truth, and hast fixed thy heart on the simplicity of her charms, hold fast thy fidelity unto her, and forsake her not; the constancy of thy virtue shall crown thee with honor.

Koran Questionary: (KQ)

46. What did Jesus say that would make you free? TRUTH.

47. What is TRUTH? TRUTH is Aught.

48. What is Aught? Aught is ALLAH.

49. Can TRUTH change? TRUTH cannot change, or pass away.

50. What other name do we give to TRUTH? HOLY BREATH.

51. What have you to say about HOLY BREATH? All we can say is it is Great. It is good. It was, it is, and evermore to be. AMEN.

2. The tongue of the sincere is rooted in heart; hypocrisy and deceit have no place in his words.

KQ:4. Where is the nearest place we can meet Him? In the heart.

 

3. He blusheth at falsehood, and is founded; but in speaking the truth, he hath a steady eye.

MHK:7:v.2. One day as Jesus and Lamaas walked alone in Plaza Jagannath, Lamaas said: “My Jewish master, what is truth?”

3. And Jesus said: “Truth is the only thing that changes not.

4. In all the world there are two things; The one is truth; the other is falsehood, and falsehood that which seems to be.

5. Now truth is aught and has no cause, and yet it is the cause of everything.

6. Falsehood is naught, and yet it is the manifest of right.

7. Whatever has been made will be unmade; that which begins must end.

8. All things that can be seen by human eyes are manifests of aught, are naught, and so must pass away.

9. The things we see are but reflexes just appearing, while the ethers vibrate so and so, and when conditions change they disappear.

10. The Holy Breath is truth; is that which was, and is, and evermore shall be; it cannot change nor pass away.”

4. He supporteth, as a man, the dignity of his character; to the arts of hypocrisy he scorneth to stoop.

Also:

MHK:5:v.13. “These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things were made of thought and where we build up character.

 

MHK9:16. The sin lies in the wish, in the desire, not in the act.

17. You covet other people’s wealth; you look at charming forms, and deep within your hearts you lust for them.

18. Deceit you practice every day, and wish for gold, for honor and for fame, just for your selfish selves.

19. The man who covets is a thief, and she who lusts is courtesan. You who are none of these speak out.”

5. He is consistent with himself; he is never embarrassed; he hath courage enough for truth; but to lie he is afraid.

MHK:41: v. 8. The inconstant feeleth that he changeth, but he knoweth not why; he seeth that he escapeth from himself, but he perceiveth not how. Be thou incapable of change, in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee.

 

 

6. He is far above the meanness of dissimulation; the words of his mouth are the thoughts of his heart.

MHK:41: 9. Establish unto thyself principles of action, and see that thou ever act according to them.

 

Prophet Noble Drew Ali

7. Yet, with prudence and caution he openeth his lips; he studieth what is right, and speaketh with discretion.

MHK:26:v. 6. The wise man feeleth his imperfections, and is humbled; he laboreth in vain for his own approbation but the fool peepeth in the shadow stream of his own mind, and is pleased with the pebbles which he seeth at the bottom; he bringeth them up and showeth them as pearls and with the applause of his brethren delighteth himself.

FLIP-Flop
1. To move back and forth between two conditions or circumstances, sometimes repeatedly: “The weather has flip-flopped between sweltering heat and violent storms” (New York Times).
2. To reverse a stand or position: “With the board having flip-flopped over zoning issues in the last several years, residents are looking to this fall’s election for clarity” (Eugene L. Meyer).

 

8. He adviseth with friendship; he reproveth with freedom; and whatsoever he promiseth shall surely be performed.

THE QUORUM OF SHEIKS; MHK:38:v. 17. The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened but treasures are poured out before thee.

MHK:38:v. 18. Like unto trees of gold arranged in beds of silver are wise sentences uttered in due season.

 

9. But the heart of the hypocrite is hid in his breast; he maketh his words in the semblance of truth, while the business of his life is only to deceive.

Wikipedia:

Shanghaiing or crimping is the practice of kidnapping people to serve as sailors by coercive techniques such as trickery, intimidation, or violence. Those engaged in this form of kidnapping were known as crimps. The related term press gang refers specifically to impressment practices in Great Britain’s Royal Navy.[1]

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghaiing

The most straightforward method for a crimp to shanghai a sailor was to render him unconscious, forge his signature on the ship’s articles, and pick up his “blood money.” This approach was widely used, but there …

10. He laugheth in sorrow, he weepeth in joy; and the words of his mouth have no interpretation.

MHK:40:v.14. Why bestoweth thou in every man the flattery of unmeaning words? Thou knowest, when returned thee, thou regardest it not. He knoweth he lieth unto thee, yet he knoweth thou will thank him for it. Speak in sincerity, and thou wilt hear with instruction.

MHK:40: v.22. Yet neither ease nor pain have fixed themselves on him; neither is he waxed greater, or become less; neither hath he had cause for laughter, or reason for his sorrow; therefore shall none of them abide with him.

 

I AM A MOORISH-AMERICAN, MO-EL

11. He worketh in the dark as a mole, and fancieth he is safe; but he blundereth into light, and is betrayed and exposed, with dirt on his head.

Now, with such high stakes, I assumed that all group members would be pulling in the same direction. Imagine my disappointment and displeasure when I found out that one of the members was simply a ‘mole’.

The first thing I noticed was that on most issues, this lady had strong and different views to the rest of the group. If we were discussing a certain strategy or action plan, once we got to the point where we agreed on the way forward, she would pull something out of the woodworks to argue why the idea would not work. She would try to make the conversation revolve around herself and the new issue; waste everybody’s time in the process; sow doubts in the minds of the less confident; fritter away some of the momentum and goodwill already gained behind the original idea; and slow down the wheel of progress.

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-do-you-spot-mole-work-3

 

12. He passeth his days in perpetual constraint; his tongue and heart are forever at variance.

MHK:20. Who shall say of the inconstant: “He is joyful,” when his next breath shall be spent in sighing?

21. What is the life of such a man, but the phantom of a dream? In the morning he riseth happy, at noon he is on the rack; this hour he is a god, the next below a worm; one moment he laugheth, the next he weepeth; he now willeth, in an instant he willeth not, and in another he knoweth not whether he willeth or not.

 

13. He laboreth for the character of a righteous man; and huggeth himself in the thoughts of his cunning.

MHK:43:v.18. Say not unto thyself: “Behold, truth breedeth hatred, and I will avoid it; dissimulation raiseth friends, and I will follow it.” Are not the enemies made by truth, better than the friends obtained by flattery?

 

https://moonpointer.com/new/2017/05/sincerity

 

14. O fool, fool! The pains which thou taketh to hide what thou art, are more than would make thee what thou wouldst seem; and the children of Wisdom shall mock at thy cunning, when in the midst of security, thy disguise is stripped off, and the finger of derision shall point thee to scorn.

Strangely Moorish Spain wasn’t really ruled by Arabs. It is true that many high positions were taken by Arabs but most of the Moors were Berbers. Later Muwallads (converted Christians) together with the offspring of the first invaders became dominant in Moorish Spain. The invaders brought no women so the second generation of Moors were already half Hispanic!

 

The term “Moors” refers primarily to the Muslim inhabitants of the Maghreb, the Iberian Peninsula, Sicily, and Malta during the Middle Ages. The Moors initially were the Berber autochthones of the Maghreb.[1] The name was later also applied to Arabs.[2][3]

Moors are not a distinct or self-defined people,[4] and the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica observed that “The term ‘Moors’ has no real ethnological value.”[5] Medieval and early modern Europeans variously applied the name to Arabs, North African Berbers, and Muslim Europeans.[6]

The term has also been used in Europe in a broader, somewhat derogatory sense to refer to Muslims in general,[7] especially those of Arab or Berber descent, whether living in Spain or North Africa.[8] During the colonial era, the Portuguese introduced the names “Ceylon Moors” and “Indian Moors” in Sri Lanka, and the Bengali Muslims were also called Moors.[9]

In 711, troops mostly formed by Moors from North Africa led the Umayyad conquest of Hispania. The Iberian peninsula then came to be known in classical Arabic as Al-Andalus, which at its peak included most of Septimania and modern-day Spain and Portugal.

In 827, the Moors occupied Mazara on Sicily, developing it as a port.[10] They eventually consolidated the rest of the island and some of southern Italy. Differences in religion and culture led to a centuries-long conflict with the Christian kingdoms of Europe, which tried to reclaim control of Muslim areas; this conflict was referred to as the Reconquista. In 1224 the Muslims were expelled from Sicily to the settlement of Lucera, which was destroyed by European Christians in 1300.

The fall of Granada in 1492 marked the end of Muslim rule in Iberia, although a Muslim minority persisted until their expulsion in 1609.[11]

The Expulsion of the Moriscos was decreed by King Philip III of Spain on April 9, 1609. The Moriscos were descendants of Spain’s Muslim population that had converted to Christianity by coercion or by Royal Decree in the early 16th century. Wikipedia

It’s not happiness that brings us Gratitude, it is

Gratutude that brings us happiness.” Buddha

There is no path to happiness, happiness is a path “

Buddha

” The heart of the grateful man is like the clouds of heaven which drops upon the earth, fruits, herbage and flowers; but the heart of the ungrateful is like a desert of sand which swalloweth with greediness the showers that fall, and burieth them in its bosom, and produceth nothing.” MHK 33:4

MHK:33 GRATITUDE 

Holy Instructions From the Prophet Drew Ali

 

                        ” Gratitude “


1. As the branches of a tree return their sap to the root, from whence it arose; as a river poureth its streams to the sea, whence the spring was supplied; so the heart of a grateful man delighteth in returning a benefit received.

2. He acknowledgeth his obligation with cheerfulness, he looketh on his benefactor with love and esteem.

3. And if to return it be not in his power, he nourisheth the memory of it in his breast with kindness; he forgetteth it not all the days of his life.

4. The heart of the grateful man is like the clouds of heaven which drops upon the earth, fruits, herbage and flowers; but the heart of the ungrateful is like a desert of sand which swalloweth with greediness the showers that fall, and burieth them in its bosom, and produceth nothing.

5. Envy not thy benefactor, neither strive to conceal the benefit he hath conferred; for though to oblige is better than to be obliged, though the act of generosity commandeth admiration, yet the humility toucheth the heart, and is amiable on the sight both of Allah and man.

6. But receive not a favor from the hand of the proud; to the selfish and avaricious have no obligation; the vanity of pride shall expose thee to shame; the greediness of avarice shall never be satisfied. 

THANK YOU!!

GRATITUDE TO ALLAH

MHK: 35:3; To the one who is supreme, most wise and beneficent, and to Him alone, belong worship, adoration, thanks giving and praise.

20. But thee, He hath embued thee with reason, to maintain thy dominion; he hath fitted thee with language, to improve thy society; and exalted thy mind with the powers of meditation, to contemplate and adore His inimitable perfections.

22. O praise His goodness with songs of thanksgiving, and meditate in silence on the wonders of His love; let thy heart overflow with** gratitude and acknowledgment, let the language of thy lips speak praise and adoration, let the actions of thy life show thy love to His law.

Chapter 12 How to Obtain Eternal Happiness

Excerpt: Jesus tells a Parable

MHK:12: 13-22; SCANTY WAY;

A certain man possessed a field; the soil was hard and poor.

14. By constant toil he scarcely could provide enough of food to keep his family from want.

15. One day a miner who could see beneath the soil, in passing on his way, saw this poor man and his unfruitful field.

16. He called the weary toiler and he said: ‘My brother, know you not that just below the surface of your barren field rich treasures lie concealed?

17. You plough and sow and reap in a ** scanty way, and day by day you tread upon a mine of gold and precious stones.

18. This wealth lies not upon the surface of the ground; but if you will dig away the rocky soil, and delve down deep into the earth, you need no longer till the soil for naught.’

BELIEF!

19. The man believed. ‘The miner surely knows,’ ‘And I will find the treasures hidden in my field.’

20. And then he dug away the rocky soil, and deep down in the earth he found a mine of gold.”

21. And Jesus said: “The sons of men are toiling hard on desert plains, and burning sands and rocky soils, are doing what there fathers did, not dreaming they can do aught else.

BEHOLD A MASTER COMES

22.** Behold a master comes, and tells them of a hidden wealth; that underneath the rocky soil of carnal things are treasures that no man can count.

23. **That in the heart the richest gems abound; that he who wills may open the door and find them all.”

[**And if to return it be not in his power, he nourisheth the memory of it in his breast with kindness; he forgetteth it not all the days of his life.]

We express Gratitude in the Funeral Rites for each individual Sheik Mufti’s life’s contributions, to the all of life. So many Thank you! On the Day of Retribution! May our lives be worthy in the sight of our Creator!

MHK:5: v.3. Death is no enemy of man; it is a friend who, when the work of life is done, just cuts the cord that binds the human boat to earth, that it may sail on smoother seas.

GRATITUDE |  ABRAHAM’S PRAYER

Sometimes an Angel comes to help when you really do not know which way to go!

HQM:14:37(a); AN ANGEL POINTS TO THE WELL

OF ZAMZAM

14:37 Our Lord, I have settled a part of my offspring in a valley unproductive of fruit near Thy Sacred House, our Lord, that they may keep up prayer; so make the hearts of some people yearn towards them, and provide them with fruits; haply they may be grateful.

HQM:37:105a ZAMZAM

We begin with belief, ” the Miner surely knows.”

MHK:7:27-31; SALVATION LADDER, -BELIEF, FAITH, FRUITION.

25. Lamaas asked: “Pray, what is faith?”

26. And Jesus said: “Faith is the surety of the omnipotence of Allah and man; the certainty that man will reach the deific life.

27. Salvation is a ladder reaching from the heart of man to heart of Allah.

28. It has three steps; Belief is first, and this is what man thinks, perhaps, is truth.

29. And faith is next, and this is what man knows is truth.

30. Fruition is the last, and this is man himself, the truth.

31. Belief is lost in faith; and in fruition is lost; and man is saved when he has reached deific life; when he and Allah are one.”

 

MHK:4:15-16; BLOCK OF WOOD, TEACHER FOOTPRINTS CLEARLY CUT

15. The man who stands upon the corners of the paths and points the way, but does not go, is just a pointer; and a block of wood can do the same.

16. The teacher treads the way; on every span of ground he leaves his footprints, clearly cut, which all can see and be assured that he, their master went that way.
