this is the introduction to the holy quran..

Glory to Allah Most High full of Grace and Mercy; He created All, including man. to Man He gave a special place in his creation. He honoured man to be his agent, and to that end endued him with understanding. Purfied his affections, and gave him spiritual insight, so that mad should understand nature understand himself. and know allah through his wonderous signs. and glorify him in truth and reverence and unity.

for the fulfilme nt of this great trust man was fruther given a will. So that his acts should relect Allah's universal Will and law. and his mind freely choosing. should experience the sublime joy of being in harmony with the infinite and with the great drama of the world around him and with his own spiritual growth.

But created though he was in the best of moulds man fell from unity when his will was warped and he chose the crooked path of Discord. and sorrow and pain selfishness and degradation. Ignorance and hatred despair and unbelief poisoned his life and he saw shapes of evil in the physical moral and spiritual world, and in himself.

Then did his soul rise against himself, and his self-discord made discord between kith and kin Men began to fear the strong and oppress the weak, to boast in prosperity and curse in adversity. and to flee each other pursuing phantoms, for the truth and reality of unithy was gone from thier minds.

when men spread themselves over the earth and became many nations, speaking diverse languages, and observing diverse customs and laws, the evils became multiplied, as one race or nation became anienated from another. The Brotherhood of man was now doubly forgotten first between individuals and secondly between nations arrogance selfishness and untruth..

were sown and reaped in larger fields and peace faith love and justice were obscured over masses of men, as large tracts of land are starved of sunshine by clouds floating far on high.

but Allah in his infinite mercy and love who forgives and guides individuals and nations and turns to good even what seems to us evil never forsakes the struggling soul that turns to him.. nor the groups of men and women who join togetherto obey his will and law and strengthen each other in unity and truth, not the nations that dwell in mountain or valley heat or cold, in regions fertile or arid, i societies that roam over land or seas or hund or tend flocks or till the soil or seek the seas for food or oil or fat or gems. or dg out from the bowels of the earth Precious stones or metals or stored up heat and energy or practice arts and crafts or produce abundant wealth by machines or ingenious workmanship or live a frugal life of contemplation for all that are creatures of one god and share his loving care and must be brought within the pae of his eternal unity and harmony.

there are much more to write but i will do so another day.. this was just interesting because it deals with all life not a religion... that is how i seen it.. everybody is under this world and there is only one god. religions are nothing to fight over.. take a look at the bigger picture.. ok peace for now.

So true Chrissy

We all may be seperated in our languages and the regions we live, but morality always exists withing all of us. Whether we choose to be loving beings is on each one of us. We all have a life to live, and to live it rightly according to our understanding is what we must do.

Sowing seeds struck a cord, not only is it healing to plant seeds in the earth, but what if we sowed seeds of Love, Beauty, Joy, Hope, Peace, Patience... in our mind, & body our Soul (Higher Self) would be much appreciative.

Many Blessings

all religions revolve around one being God. We should all stop fighting about whos religion is the only one and concentrate on God as the only one for all Very Happy

A wise man once said that religion is like a raft we use to get to the other side of a wide river. Once we have reached the other shore, we don’t carry the raft around with us, we acknowledge that it helped us reach our destination, put it down and continue on.
Peace and Blessings,
