Why I Am Weird

But my Mother is Flat Out Scary!

Enough Stuff About the Wife (I really tried not to take it personally for over 17 years, but since they started using my name I find that they really may not know what they are doing after all--I thought it was just a hazing process).

{Addendum: September 9, 2013 20:13; You know, 'Dex', you may think it's been about a year since you last saw me, but I assure you that it has been only about 6 months since I saw you last in the vicinity of Union Station, downtown LA. And while you may think me an old lady, I assure you my age is appropriate to that of what I know to be my children who are now in their 20's--besides, I wasn't under the impression that I am trying to impress you--Steve0 is very outspoken when it comes to such matters...And while it is only my age that you find remarkable, I seem to recall your eyes were a clearer, larger, blue than the grey-blue ones you had when I saw you on the bus this evening.}

I cannot knowingly violate any of the following tenets although I can unequivocally say my erstwhile and challenger 'husbands' are in rank violation of all of the following:

Quran Chapter and Verse

Surah 2 Al-Baqara (The Cow)

وَلاَ تَنكِحُواْ الْمُشْرِكَاتِ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنَّ
وَلأَمَةٌ مُّؤْمِنَةٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكَةٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَتْكُمْ
وَلاَ تُنكِحُواْ الْمُشِرِكِينَ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنُواْ
 وَلَعَبْدٌ مُّؤْمِنٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ
أُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ
 وَاللّهُ يَدْعُوَ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ
وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ (2:221
2:221 And do not marry idolatresses until they believe;
For, a believing bond woman is better than an idolatress though she please you;
and do not marry idolaters until they believe;
for a believing bond man is better than an idolater though he please you.
These beckon you to the fire (Hell),
and God Calls you to the Garden (Eden) and Forgiveness by His Grace.
And He expounds His Revelations to mankind (nas) so that they may reflect (on them, consider them).


وَإِذَا طَلَّقْتُمُ النَّسَاء فَبَلَغْنَ أَجَلَهُنَّ فَأَمْسِكُوهُنَّ بِمَعْرُوفٍ
 أَوْ سَرِّحُوهُنَّ بِمَعْرُوفٍ
وَلاَ تُمْسِكُوهُنَّ ضِرَارًا لَّتَعْتَدُواْ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَقَدْ ظَلَمَ نَفْسَهُ 
وَلاَ تَتَّخِذُوَاْ آيَاتِ اللّهِ هُزُوًا وَاذْكُرُواْ نِعْمَتَ اللّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ
 وَمَا أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ وَالْحِكْمَةِ يَعِظُكُم بِهِ
وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ
 وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ (2:231
2:231 And when you divorce women, and they reach the end of the ordained waiting period, retain them in a fair manner or release them in a fair manner.
But DO NOT keep them against their will only to hurt them, for whoever does this indeed sins against their own self (SteveH., a playback of what the in-house close-circuit camera captured of  my ER visit to Cedar Sinai on or about April 19-20, 2013, and keep quiet please, once and for all.)
And do not take God's Signs in jest and remember God's Grace over you,
And whatever is Revealed to you of the Book (Scripture), and the discernment (wisdom, good judgment) He admonishes you within it.
And remain conscious of God,
and know that God is truly Aware of Everything (Omniscient).

وَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا عَرَّضْتُم بِهِ مِنْ خِطْبَةِ النِّسَاء
أَوْ أَكْنَنتُمْ فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ
عَلِمَ اللّهُ أَنَّكُمْ سَتَذْكُرُونَهُنَّ
وَلَـكِن
لاَّ تُوَاعِدُوهُنَّ سِرًّا إِلاَّ أَن تَقُولُواْ قَوْلاً مَّعْرُوفًا
 وَلاَ تَعْزِمُواْ عُقْدَةَ النِّكَاحِ حَتَّىَ يَبْلُغَ الْكِتَابُ أَجَلَهُ
وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ
 فَاحْذَرُوهُ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ (2:235
2:235 And you incur no blame if you openly make a marriage proposal to [any of] these women, or if you keep such intentions to yourself.
God knows that you intend to marry them.
But,
Do not plight your troth with them in secret, except to speak to them in a decent (known, polite) manner. 
(What about Your clandestine conversation with Me at RFD on June 23, 2013 was decent, or polite?--Inflammatory and vulgar was more like it and that's why the tacit retort in-kind, and I was surprised your companion actually apprised You I thought as much--I'm entitled to keep my own private counsel).
And do not proceed with tying the marriage-knot before the proscribed period has come to its end. (Typically on the order of 4 months unless the woman is pregnant--not decades!)
And know that God Knows what is in your inner-selves (souls).
Therefore, remain conscious of Him and know, too, that God is Forgiving, Forbearing.

وَإِن طَلَّقْتُمُوهُنَّ مِن قَبْلِ أَن تَمَسُّوهُنَّ
وَقَدْ فَرَضْتُمْ لَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً فَنِصْفُ مَا فَرَضْتُمْ
إَلاَّ أَن يَعْفُونَ أَوْ يَعْفُوَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ عُقْدَةُ النِّكَاحِ
وَأَن تَعْفُواْ أَقْرَبُ لِلتَّقْوَى وَلاَ تَنسَوُاْ الْفَضْلَ بَيْنَكُمْ
 إِنَّ اللّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ (2:237
2:237 And should you divorce them before you touch them (consummate the marriage),
and you have given them their dowries, then half of what you pledge (belongs to them),
unless they (the women) agree to forego it, or he who holds the marriage tie agrees to forgo his half.
To forgo it draws you closer to piety (taqwa), and do not be remiss in the promises you make amongst yourselves.
Indeed, God Is Witness over whatever you do.

Surah 4 An-Nisa (The Women)

وَآتُواْ النَّسَاء صَدُقَاتِهِنَّ نِحْلَةً
فَإِن طِبْنَ لَكُمْ عَن شَيْءٍ مِّنْهُ نَفْسًا
 فَكُلُوهُ هَنِيئًا مَّرِيئًا (4:4
4:4 And give the women (you marry) their marriage portion in the spirit of a free gift,
and should they gift you a portion of it of their own will, (i.e., do not coerce or defraud them of it)
absorb it as your own wealth and enjoy it.

وَابْتَلُواْ الْيَتَامَى حَتَّىَ إِذَا بَلَغُواْ النِّكَاحَ
فَإِنْ آنَسْتُم مِّنْهُمْ رُشْدًا
 فَادْفَعُواْ إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ وَلاَ تَأْكُلُوهَا إِسْرَافًا وَبِدَارًا أَن يَكْبَرُواْ
 وَمَن كَانَ غَنِيًّا فَلْيَسْتَعْفِفْ
 وَمَن كَانَ فَقِيرًا فَلْيَأْكُلْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ
 فَإِذَا دَفَعْتُمْ إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فَأَشْهِدُواْ عَلَيْهِمْ
وَكَفَى بِاللّهِ حَسِيبًا (4:6
4:6 And challenge (test to prove) orphans until they reach marriageable age;
should you find them to be of sound judgment,
then pay them their inheritance and do not consume their wealth wastefully and in haste before they grow up. (This is rather self-serving, but I am leveling this blame squarely on my children's father.)
If (the guardian) is rich, abstain generously (from using the orphans' due),
and if (the guardian) is needy, spend conscientiously.
And when you deliver their inheritance (wealth, money) to them, have a witness present.
And it suffices that God Takes Account (Reckons, Reconciles).

Not exactly relevant to what's here, but may answer the question,

4:23 Prohibited (Forbidden) to you are your mothers and your daughters and your sisters and your paternal aunts and your maternal aunts,
and (nieces, both) the daughters of your brothers and the daughters of your sisters,
and your wet-nurses, and your sisters who shared wet-nurses,
and the mothers of your wives (mothers-in-law), and daughters under your protection born of women whom you have conjugal ties,
but if you have no conjugal relations (with their mothers), there is no sin (in marrying their daughters). and (also forbidden are) the wives of your biological sons and to join between sisters (together), except for what's been in the past.
Indeed, God Is Forgiving, Merciful.
(See, the problem I am having with SteveH? I know He is married (and not to me, but it may be to my late great sister), and I am no home wrecker. But if I am still mistaken about that, I would have to be an alien to not fall under any of these prohibitions--which brings up the whole interspecies thing in which case I am no Captain Kirk, either).


 Surah 5 Al-Ma'idah (The Table Spread)

الْيَوْمَ أُحِلَّ لَكُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتُ
وَطَعَامُ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْكِتَابَ
حِلٌّ لَّكُمْ وَطَعَامُكُمْ حِلُّ لَّهُمْ
وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْكِتَابَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ
إِذَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ مُحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَافِحِينَ
وَلاَ مُتَّخِذِي أَخْدَانٍ
 وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِالإِيمَانِ فَقَدْ حَبِطَ عَمَلُهُ
وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ (5:5
5:5 Today lawful to you are all the good things.
And the food of those given Scripture (before you)
is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them.
And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you (lawful for you),
once you give them their marriage portions and live with them honorably, and not in fornication.
And not take them as secret liaisons. (See? Right here, SteveH-- popping into my kitchen (or foot of my bed) as the 'Invisible Man' (aka I_M) is not allowed--even if  you don't care who 'she' is or just to thank me for the 'invisibility cloak').
And whoever belies the faith, his works are in vain,
and he (she/they) will be among the losers in the Hereafter.

 Surah 24 Al-Nour (The Light)
وَلْيَسْتَعْفِفِ الَّذِينَ لَا يَجِدُونَ نِكَاحًا حَتَّى يُغْنِيَهُمْ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ
 وَالَّذِينَ يَبْتَغُونَ الْكِتَابَ مِمَّا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ فَكَاتِبُوهُمْ إِنْ عَلِمْتُمْ فِيهِمْ خَيْرًا
 وَآتُوهُم مِّن مَّالِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي آتَاكُمْ
وَلَا تُكْرِهُوا فَتَيَاتِكُمْ عَلَى الْبِغَاء
 إِنْ أَرَدْنَ تَحَصُّنًا لِّتَبْتَغُوا عَرَضَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَن يُكْرِههُّنَّ
فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ مِن بَعْدِ إِكْرَاهِهِنَّ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ (24:33
24:33 And those not having the means to marry shall keep chaste until God grants them means out of His bounty.
And if any of those whom you rightfully possess desire a deed (of freedom), write it out for them if you are aware of any goodness in them. (Uh-oh, is someone's virtue being called into question?)
And give them [their share] of God's wealth that He has given you.
And do not, in order to gain some of the fleeting pleasures of this worldly life, coerce your maidens into whoredom when they prefer chastity.
And if anyone should coerce them, then, verily, after they have been compelled,
God will Forgive them and Be Merciful to them.

وَالْقَوَاعِدُ مِنَ النِّسَاء اللَّاتِي لَا يَرْجُونَ نِكَاحًا
 فَلَيْسَ عَلَيْهِنَّ جُنَاحٌ أَن يَضَعْنَ ثِيَابَهُنَّ غَيْرَ مُتَبَرِّجَاتٍ بِزِينَةٍ
وَأَن يَسْتَعْفِفْنَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُنَّ
 وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ (24:60
24:60 And those women advanced in years (past childbearing) that have no request (hope) for marriage, are blameless should they shed their outer garments without showcasing their adornments (beauty). (According to a recent encounter with one of my brothers who said, "OMG, You're really old!"--that's that about the marriage prospects, and hopefully puts an end to the 'dead-ended wife' routine that leaves me without so much as a dinner companion).
If they refrain (from doing so) it is better for them,
For God is All-Hearing, Omniscient.

 Surah 25 Al-Furqan (The Criterion)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ مِنَ الْمَاء بَشَرًا
 فَجَعَلَهُ نَسَبًا وَصِهْرًا
 وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ قَدِيرًا (25:54
25:54 And He it is Who Created man from water (ma'),
and made for him lineage by blood and lineage by marriage; (And both my erstwhile and SteveH 'husbands' managed to break both my ties of kith and kin for me--in fact, SteveH brags about it. 'I divorced her!' He said. and rattles off a litany of other things He did to 'pss Her of', including availing himself of her personal possessions like her iphone.  So why the 'wife.ly' pursuit thereafter? Usually, it's a mutual parting of the ways. And given how you are so proud of Your efforts to sour me on the whole marriage concept, why spoil the desired outcome? I never went back once I got my walking papers, despite those in your camp saying, "Most people would just return home."--Like, duh! You all think I didn't hear you planning to get me thrown out of my house? I just know not to engage in a losing battle with unknown entities of questionable motives),
for your Lord is Almighty (Omnipotent).

 Surah 33 Al-Ahzab (The Confederates)
وَإِذْ تَقُولُ لِلَّذِي أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ أَمْسِكْ عَلَيْكَ زَوْجَكَ وَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَتُخْفِي فِي نَفْسِكَ مَا اللَّهُ مُبْدِيهِ وَتَخْشَى النَّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَاهُ فَلَمَّا قَضَى زَيْدٌ مِّنْهَا وَطَرًا زَوَّجْنَاكَهَا لِكَيْ لَا يَكُونَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ حَرَجٌ فِي أَزْوَاجِ أَدْعِيَائِهِمْ إِذَا قَضَوْا مِنْهُنَّ وَطَرًا وَكَانَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ مَفْعُولًا (33:37)
33:37...cannot read this without all the blood draining from me, due to my understanding of the phrase 'wife of Your adopted Son'--I confirm I heard as much as far back as April/May/June 1992. See? You had Your chance to tell me, but despite sage advice coming from all quarters that You "have to just tell Her!' You elected not to give me a modicum of consideration, and the reason why the curtain on this Fellini opera has to draw to a certain, sure, unequivocal close!

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَحْلَلْنَا لَكَ أَزْوَاجَكَ اللَّاتِي آتَيْتَ أُجُورَهُنَّ وَمَا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ مِمَّا أَفَاء اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ وَبَنَاتِ عَمِّكَ وَبَنَاتِ عَمَّاتِكَ وَبَنَاتِ خَالِكَ وَبَنَاتِ خَالَاتِكَ اللَّاتِي هَاجَرْنَ مَعَكَ وَامْرَأَةً مُّؤْمِنَةً إِن وَهَبَتْ نَفْسَهَا لِلنَّبِيِّ إِنْ أَرَادَ النَّبِيُّ أَن يَسْتَنكِحَهَا خَالِصَةً لَّكَ مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ قَدْ عَلِمْنَا مَا فَرَضْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ فِي أَزْوَاجِهِمْ وَمَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُمْ لِكَيْلَا يَكُونَ عَلَيْكَ حَرَجٌ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا (33:50
33:50 (This just establishes that only the Prophet's (pbuh) wives are His wives, and not me or anyone else. I listened carefully after that last comment on Sign 33:37 posted, and for the first time in a long time, after hearing my name, I heard a Silence. 
Clearly, to say that my inexplicable behavior is because I am 'sleep deprived' or 'hurt' is an obfuscation on Your part, don't You think?)

{BTW, now that my brothers are in on it, the more I hear, "Your wife is beautiful," the more frequently my brothers interject with, "Steve is a Monster!"   Almost makes me wanna stick around and see that movie after all.}

And in the final analysis, why this whole husband/wife thing is a moot point between Us.

Surah 60 Al.Mumtahina (The Examined/Tested/Tried Woman)
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا
إِذَا جَاءكُمُ الْمُؤْمِنَاتُ مُهَاجِرَاتٍ فَامْتَحِنُوهُنَّ
اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِإِيمَانِهِنَّ
 فَإِنْ عَلِمْتُمُوهُنَّ مُؤْمِنَاتٍ فَلَا تَرْجِعُوهُنَّ إِلَى الْكُفَّارِ
لَا هُنَّ حِلٌّ لَّهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحِلُّونَ لَهُنَّ
 وَآتُوهُم مَّا أَنفَقُوا
وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ أَن تَنكِحُوهُنَّ إِذَا آتَيْتُمُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ
 وَلَا تُمْسِكُوا بِعِصَمِ الْكَوَافِرِ
وَاسْأَلُوا مَا أَنفَقْتُمْ وَلْيَسْأَلُوا مَا أَنفَقُوا
ذَلِكُمْ حُكْمُ اللَّهِ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ (60:10
60:10 O, All You Believers (The Faithful)!
Should believing women migrate (come) to you, examine them (try them/test their faith),
God Knows of their Fidelity (Faithfulness, Belief).
And if you know them to be Believers, Do Not return them to the infidels (unfaithful).
They (these women) are prohibited (not marriageable) to them and they (the nonbelievers) are prohibited (not marriageable) to them (these believing women).
And give them (pay them) whatever they had to pay (earned) {yup, don't just pop in and out bragging about how you got me working 24/7 for nothing and then say how you all feel so sorry about it!}
And it is not a sin for you to marry them once you've compensated them 
And do not cling in defense of the nonbelievers (unfaithful).
And ask them for whatever you have spent, just as they can ask for whatever they spent.
This is God's Ordinance. He Judges Amongst You, and God Is All-Knowing, Wise.

The compensation in this case is not a dowry, but payment for services rendered and that's why I put up with the snide remarks about  my 'working girl' status.

Surah 15 Hijr (Rocky Tracts, aka Rocky Road)
وَلَقَدْ جَعَلْنَا فِي السَّمَاء بُرُوجًا وَزَيَّنَّاهَا لِلنَّاظِرِينَ (15:16

The fact is, SteveH, this is a job like any other, and now that I'm caught up in it, I don't want to be enmeshed with a bunch of slavers. The job description is 'path finder' (ie., scout, trail blazer--You know exactly what that means--I've even started logging license plates) at this level and why the expectation is payment for services rendered--without having to hear your wives' instructions as how I should go about giving you 'lip service'--which in fact falls within your own wives' job description, so kindly have them not get the office help involved in such personal matters.

110:2 And you see/observe the people (Nas/communities) entering into God's Religion/Judgment/Decree en masse (in crowds, throngs, troops, battalions...)
{It becomes very tricky to not take it personally and get all paranoid at the onset...what with all these followers in hot pursuit--obviously it's not because they want a date!}

You all but ruined my down time at the gym with the non-stop chatter and unsolicited inane opinions and comments you all freely make in yoga class and in the ladies' locker room.

And You, and this is personal, You know who you are, the very vocal one with the 'you are my wife' single-sound-byte mantra, cramped my social life to such an effect that I can't even get a dinner date around here.

Presumably all these individuals (both men and women) who want to befriend me and solicit my number, can't get through to my cell phone because 'circuits busy' signals--really, which cellular network with its multi-path, multi-cell, multi-telecommunication satellite (constellations) can produce that kind of heavily trafficked tie-up to my socially retarded cell phone? Hmmmm, very interesting.

I Think I Hear My Mother Calling...

...and, Boy! Does He Sound Mad!

A dog comes when he is called, but a cat takes a message and will get back to you later.--Mary Bly


{PS: Things could not have gone any worse for me up until 6 months ago, then they absolutely plummeted and now I have to put up with more angst inducing weirdness and take it on the chin?
--nuh-uh!
I hear these guys mumbling "beautiful" and "who is she" and some say "she's my mom" and some say "she's my wife". 

And sometimes to actually hear my name called!--one guy in particular seems to have lost his wife and is searching high and low for her--the bus, the train, any restaurant I happen to randomly pop into--so much stress to have to hear about it and hold down a meal or catch the next bus while all this is going on...
(I am not 'the wife' in the biblical sense, since I see him go home to his real wife, he just flies in for the day, does some work and goes back home to her; I am a 'working girl', the worst kind ever, the type that actually does not get paid for a job well done! ergo~GOD, and the need for One!)

Still my second rate life; where most girls get to age to perfection and 'beautiful' to them means 'timeless', for me that kind of remarkable beauty translates to 'dateless'--or am I mis.hearing 'beautiful' for 'pitiful'?
Besides, there's no shortage of beauty in the world, just a lack of clean public restrooms and frequent LA Metro buses that run on time.
What's more, as I read this entry to edit it, I am watching this really pretty young woman (a classic beauty, like Venus) outside a coffee shop shedding a stream of tears and it just reinforces what I have known all along, Beauty is not an Armor impervious to being pierced by Sorrow. 

And do You mean I don't get to kick back and play "Can You Tag (Finger) Malcolm"  (the adult version of "Where's Waldo") forever hereafter--I thought I was on some level of the death plane (heaven, hell, earth2,3, 4...); or tell jokes to myself once I get home (i.e., haunt the house; a step up for me-- that type of behavior was limited to the kitchen in real life)?

I know this is not any kind of love story, the last thing I would be looking for, assuming I do get to the threshold of heaven, would be a 'husband', so that begs the question, 'Have we caught the culprit(s), yet?' I  soo need a vacation! (and at this rate the interest alone you all owe me for backpay must be astronomical--so the sooner we settle this the better).

Great (10/18/2012/..so that's how it is Dad, 'hello' n 'good-bye' n 'you ditch, too?!' it's not like I can't hear You telling bro # 2 and bro #3 'it's your sister'!! If You all insist on this routine, then make it so I don't have to hear yous guys.}

On The Subject of Name Calling
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), brain activation patterns were examined in response to hearing one’s own first name in contrast to hearing the names of others. There are several regions in the left hemisphere that show greater activation to one’s own name, including middle frontal cortex, middle and superior temporal cortex, and cuneus. 
These findings provide evidence that hearing one’s own name has unique brain functioning activation specific to one’s own name in relation to the names of others.

On Hearing Your Name Called 
& Putting The Conspiracy Theories To Rest

There are several instances of reputable people (of the non-psychotic variety) hearing voices and responding to them prior to the historical development of electronic PsyOps type weapons (microwave, brain enhancement (ie. air freshener), etc.) development.

In recent history, there is such an instance described by Mother Teresa which led Her to what became Her life's mission in India.

She, being a faithful person, did not question the Voice as anything other than being patently genuine and the Voice of some Agency of God, (God, an Angel, my Mom in her kitchen?), and did not run around trying to locate the source like the rest of us would by first typing in some keywords into our favorite online search engine.

And prior to the advent of such emergent technology, there is evidence that this sort of thing has been going on for quite some time, and Say What!--no modern technology required?

A Smattering of Selected Case Studies In The Bible


Isaiah 43:1
And now, thus said Jehovah, Thy Creator, O Jacob, and thy Fashioner, O Israel, Be not afraid, for I have redeemed thee, I have called on thy name -- thou art Mine.


Isaiah 45:3
I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, Who summons you by name.

Yet, with the advent of technology (the Internet) and information from questionable sources (like bloggers and Fox News) for unverified reasons (disinformation and to hang on to their money) it becomes necessary to figure out what may or may not be a viable call from a legitimate caller (Holy God and Company).

How to Suss Out Whether It's A Higher Power 
or 
Steve at the US Army Signal Corps Doing the (Name) Calling...


1. God is Responsive to the caller and can help


Surah 2 The Calf
 وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ 

أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ 
فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي
 لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ  (2:186 

2:186 And if My Servants Ask You (the Prophet, pbuh) about Me (God), Truly, I Am Near; I Respond to the call of the caller, whenever they call. So, have them answer (respond) to Me and Follow Me, that they may be guided aright.


2. The Caller Calls you by your Name or Gives you a name of some significance (non-derogatory). 
(Figure on a planet of xxx billion people, what are the odds? What makes you so famous to attract Steve's attention?)

  • Examples of those hearing the call are called by name and sometimes even Named by the Caller:

Surah 3 The Family Al.3'mran
فَنَادَتْهُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ وَهُوَ قَائِمٌ يُصَلِّي فِي الْمِحْرَابِ
 أَنَّ اللّهَ يُبَشِّرُكَ بِيَحْيَـى مُصَدِّقًا بِكَلِمَةٍ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَسَيِّدًا
 وَحَصُورًا وَنَبِيًّا مِّنَ الصَّالِحِينَ  (3:39  


3:39 So the Angel Called (Zachariah) while He was praying in the Sanctuary, "Indeed, God Blesses you with Yahya ("He Lives"==John, the first time the name John/Yahya had been proferred on anyone). He (John) will Affirm His (God's) Words Truthfully; And He (John) will be outstanding among men, and chaste, and a Prophet among the Righteous.


Surah 19 Maryam (Mary)

يَا زَكَرِيَّا
 إِنَّا نُبَشِّرُكَ بِغُلَامٍ اسْمُهُ يَحْيَى
 لَمْ نَجْعَل لَّهُ مِن قَبْلُ سَمِيًّا (19:7    

19:7 (The Angel called,) "O, Zachariah! We, indeed, bring You tidings of a son (young soul, ghulm) whose Name is Yahya (John the Baptist); We have never given this name to anyone before Him."


Surah 20 Ta.Ha
فَلَمَّا أَتَاهَا نُودِي يَا مُوسَى (20:11 

20:11 Once He (Moses) neared it (the fire in the desert), He was Called, "O, Moses!"

Surah 37 Those Ranged (by Rank, Echelons, Arrayed)
وَنَادَيْنَاهُ أَنْ يَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ  (37:104 

37:104 And We Called Him, "That You Are Ibrahim!"



Surah 79 Al.Nazi3at

إِذْ نَادَاهُ رَبُّهُ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ
 طُوًى (79:16 

79:16 When His Sustainer Called Him In the twice-hallowed ValleyTuwa. 

(Alternatively, 'If  His Sustainer Calls him (his servant) in the holy wadi (a glen, a narrow dry river bed), "Tuwa!"~ 'Double!' or 'Fold' or 'Double Back!'; var. phonetically 'It's You!'?)

3. Those hearing the call are God's Servants (Moses, Elijah, Isma3yliya, the Faithful, Believers), and the Muslims are called first.

Surah 30 Romans
وَمَا أَنتَ بِهَادِي الْعُمْيِ عَن ضَلَالَتِهِمْ
 إِن تُسْمِعُ إِلَّا مَن يُؤْمِنُ بِآيَاتِنَا
 فَهُم مُّسْلِمُونَ (30:53

30:53 And You (the Prophet, pbuh) cannot guide the blind out of their darkness; 
only such as believe in  Our Signs can hear, for they are Muslims (Submit to God's Will).

4. The Mechanism to Call and/or hear the Caller is Primordial, it should require no man-made (synthesized) technology, since it is stipulated that God has already spoken to not only Adam and the Prophets, but some of Adam's offspring before the Last Day.

Surah 7 The Heights (Al.a3raf)

وَإِذْ أَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِن بَنِي آدَمَ
 مِن ظُهُورِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ
وَأَشْهَدَهُمْ عَلَى أَنفُسِهِمْ أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ
قَالُواْ بَلَى شَهِدْنَا
 أَن تَقُولُواْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّا كُنَّا عَنْ هَذَا غَافِلِينَ  (7:172  

7:172 And, indeed, God Takes from B'nai Adam (Adam's Offspring), 
and from the seed of their issue,  
and We Swore them (had them bear witness) by their own Souls, "Am I Your Sustainer?" 
They said, "It is True, we swear that indeed." 
So that on the Day of Judgment (Resurrection) you (Adam's issue) cannot claim  (say that) you were unaware (that being the case).

5. A Description That Such a Natural Mechanism Does Exist 
(that's why it's wrong to tamper with people and make them think otherwise)
  • Yet, there is a barrier that cannot be breached, except for special circumstances (like Death/Wrongful Death/Premature Death/Martyrdom/etc.) or by special agencies (like Angels).  
  • The concept limbo tries to explain such a mechanism; in the Arabic it is referred to as barzalch or the veil.
  • It would seem, and it must be taught, that Heaven and Earth coexist both spatially and temporally.
    • And that they are co-mingled, but we are unaware of that being the case when we are born as infants and have a conventional life on Earth... (Don't panic! It's not the first time I played matchmaker!! Something I choose to do to fill this time with since You.Know.He.Who doesn't want me to 'run with the pack,' heh, heh--snark.)

Surah 35 Fatir (The Originator, Creates Something from Nothing)



يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ 
اذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ  
 هَلْ مِنْ خَالِقٍ غَيْرُ اللَّهِ 
يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالْأَرْضِ 
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ فَأَنَّى تُؤْفَكُونَ (35:3  

(35:3) O, People (Nas, All of Creation)!
Remember God's Provisions (Bounty) He Graces you with.
Who is it that can Create it, other than God, Providing you from (both) Heaven and Earth. 
There is no God other than He. 
How is it you turn from this Truth?


  • The understanding is that while God provides us with benefits from heaven as well as earth, the boon of God's Grace does not trickle down to those considered to be in hell (ie., a low moral level of existence).
Surah 7 Al.A3raf (The Heights)

وَنَادَى أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ
 أَنْ أَفِيضُواْ عَلَيْنَا مِنَ الْمَاء أَوْ مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللّهُ 
قَالُواْ إِنَّ اللّهَ حَرَّمَهُمَا عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ (7:50  

 7:50 And the denizens of the fire (Hell) call to the denizens of the garden (Heaven, Eden), "Please pour over us of that water or whatever God Provides (Blesses) you with, but they say, "Indeed, God Forbids These to the Unfaithful (Nonbelievers, Deniers).


 Surah 7 Al.A3raf (The Heights)

وَبَيْنَهُمَا حِجَابٌ

 وَعَلَى الأَعْرَافِ رِجَالٌ يَعْرِفُونَ كُلاًّ بِسِيمَاهُمْ

وَنَادَوْاْ أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ أَن سَلاَمٌ عَلَيْكُمْ

لَمْ يَدْخُلُوهَا وَهُمْ يَطْمَعُونَ   (7:46 

7:46 And Between (them) is a Veil (Barrier  حِجَابٌ),

and on the Heights (Al.A3raf) are Men who know everyone by their marks (their names  بِسِيمَاهُمْ
and they call the denizens of Heaven, "Truly, Peace Be Upon You!" 
They have not yet entered it, and they long to.

{Sign 7:46 is made all the more interesting in that the Men (rijln  رِجَالٌ) calling from this transitional state (limbo, barzalch, al.a3raf)  through the barrier (veil حِجَابٌ) are aware of they're being in such a state and there is text to support the fact that these men desire to transcend it to a better state (Heaven) and moreover that they have an assurance of it, but for whatever reason they have to be in this suspended intermediate state (arrested development?) for a term. (I can't think of any other reason for this other than to get to watch everyone else rediscover electricity!) 

The fact that the text expressly states that they are Men, explains why my presence here is unexpected, unwanted,  not welcome, and...Surprise!


The implication is that these are good men, based on the reputation of those known to have been inducted into such a service in the past--I give Yous Guys, Solomon, and no, He was not happy to see me hear/here, either!


38 Suad ص
(38:32 فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَحْبَبْتُ حُبَّ الْخَيْرِ عَن ذِكْرِ رَبِّي
 حَتَّى تَوَارَتْ بِالْحِجَابِ

(38:32) And (Solomon) He said, "Truly do I love the love of good, in remembrance of my Sustainer,"- even as (He was) hidden behind the veil...}

Surah 36 Ya.Seen 
وَجَعَلْنَا مِن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّا
 وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا
 فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُبْصِرُونَ (36:9   

36:9 And We Closed Off (Sddna) what is between their hands (their present, what they are currently doing) and of what is behind them (what they had done in the past) Closed Off (Sddna), And (in this manner) We Veiled them while they were Unaware.

(Surah 36:9 is metaphorically speaking of giving closure to something, or finality to whatever it was they were doing or had done in the past while they were taken into this Veiled existence, unawares. (One recent example is how I was not supposed to notice how my morning prayer was interrupted right after the first rack3a last Sunday Oct. 20, 2012 (but that's why I get confused about the date/time)). Read Sedna legends of the Native Americans, and the Recent sighting of Sedna in Orbit, and the Phoenix Lights Incidence of 1997, and note the word Sedna is a homophone for  the Arabic word meaning 'closure' or 'pay-back'.)

6. The qualities of those hearing the call and why they know themselves to be legitimate:
(Look, I am not posing as any of them, I am merely interpreting the text based on my understanding of it as of 2012 CE and the prism of my personal life experience).
  • Only certain humans while alive can fathom it (truly understand it and clearly distinguish a call coming through the veiled existence (be it coming over/through the heavenly, earthly or hell levels). The two cases being Prophets and Enlightened Ones (like the Dalai Lama)...a marginal third case, the contemporary 'Men In Black'.
    • Only the Living can hear 

Surah 35 Fatir (The Originator)

وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الْأَحْيَاء وَلَا الْأَمْوَاتُ 
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُسْمِعُ مَن يَشَاء 
وَمَا أَنتَ بِمُسْمِعٍ مَّن فِي الْقُبُورِ (35:22       
(35:22) They are not equal (the same), the Dead and the Living. 
Indeed, God Makes to Hear (Listen) whomever He Wills
and You (the Prophet, the Messenger) cannot make to hear those who are in their graves.


    • And those who can hear, must be open or receptive to the Message:
Surah 27 Naml (Ants)

إِنَّكَ لَا تُسْمِعُ الْمَوْتَى وَلَا تُسْمِعُ الصُّمَّ الدُّعَاء إِذَا وَلَّوْا مُدْبِرِينَ (27:80  

27:80 Truly, You (the Prophet, the Caller) cannot make the dead hear nor make the deaf to listen 
(the deaf being those refusing to hear the message, not merely unable to hear with their ears) 
to the call while they are fleeing from You
(lit, have their backs turned to you, oppose you, 
var. while they are 'being played'~orchestrated/contrived)

  • Only those with the faculty of discernment are valid callers:
 Surah 7 Al.A3raf (The Heights)


وَنَادَى أَصْحَابُ الأَعْرَافِ
 رِجَالاً يَعْرِفُونَهُمْ بِسِيمَاهُمْ 
قَالُواْ 
مَا أَغْنَى عَنكُمْ جَمْعُكُمْ وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَسْتَكْبِرُونَ   ( 7:48

7:48 And the inhabitants of al.a3raf call ( الأَعْرَافِ , rt   عْ رَ فِ    literally, 'knowing'--those possessed with the faculty of discernment/understanding/knowing).
Men who know them (those being called) by their names (marks).
Saying, 
"Of what benefit to you is all you have amassed, or your arrogance?"
    • And, again, there is no mistaking Who is Calling and Via what Agents (Agency).
 Surah 14 Ibrahim (Abraham)

قَالَتْ رُسُلُهُمْ أَفِي اللّهِ شَكٌّ فَاطِرِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ

 يَدْعُوكُمْ لِيَغْفِرَ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُؤَخِّرَكُمْ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُّسَـمًّى
 قَالُواْ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلاَّ بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا
 تُرِيدُونَ أَن تَصُدُّونَا عَمَّا كَانَ يَعْبُدُ آبَآؤُنَا
 فَأْتُونَا بِسُلْطَانٍ مُّبِينٍ   (14:10  

(14:10) Their Messenger said to them (his people), 
"Do you doubt that God, the Originator of Heaven and Earth, Is Calling you to forgive you (shield you) from your sins (wrongs) and to grant you a reprieve (delay/defer) for a named (determined) term (period of time). 
They say, "Indeed, you are merely a man like us who wants us to repulse that which our forefathers worshipped (held dear), so show us a Clear Authority (your valid authorization to do so)."

{And I been hearing it and I beg to differ, I never made any representation of my being God, since a middle aged old lady with asthma and shin splints and a spotty period, is none such...interpretive dance (barzalch) as provided.}

7. To Determine the Validity of the Caller (Who Is Calling) and why the Call:

Surah 19 Maryam (Mary)
فَنَادَاهَا مِن تَحْتِهَا
 أَلَّا تَحْزَنِي
 قَدْ جَعَلَ رَبُّكِ تَحْتَكِ سَرِيًّا (19:24   
(19:24) Then He (The Angel) called Her (Maryam, Jesus's Mother) from beneath (the palm tree), 
"Do not grieve (dispair), 
Your Sustainer Has Made a Rivulet run beneath you (under your feet)."

    • Those compelled to call on God are given relief (He both Calls and Hears His Servant's Calls):

Surah 27 Naml (Ants)
أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ 
وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ 
وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاء الْأَرْضِ 
أَإِلَهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ 
قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ (27:62  


(27:62)  Or (Who Is It) Answers (Responds) to the Call of the one compelled (coerced, forced) to call on Him;
And Uncovers (Reveals) Misdeeds (var. Rids them of evil, ills, maladies that beset them);
And Made you viceroys upon the Earth?
Is there a god other than The One True God (Allah)?
How little you consider (remember)!"
    • The Caller (In this case, God) Clearly Identifies Himself to Moses, whom He calls by name:
Surah 28 Qasas (Stories)

فَلَمَّا أَتَاهَا
 نُودِي مِن شَاطِئِ الْوَادِي الْأَيْمَنِ
 فِي الْبُقْعَةِ الْمُبَارَكَةِ مِنَ الشَّجَرَةِ
 أَن يَا مُوسَى
 إِنِّي أَنَا اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ (28:30 

(28:30)  As He (Moses) neared it (the fire in the desert),
He Was Called, from the Right Bank of the Wadi (dry river bed)
In the Hallowed Valley from the Tree,
"Truly,  Moses,  I Am God--The Sustainer (Lord) of the Worlds."

Surah 28 Qasas (Stories)
وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ الطُّورِ 
إِذْ نَادَيْنَا
 وَلَكِن رَّحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ 
لِتُنذِرَ قَوْمًا مَّا أَتَاهُم مِّن نَّذِيرٍ مِّن قَبْلِكَ 
لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ (28:46  

(28:46)  And You (Muhammed pbuh) were not present on the side of The Tur (Mount Sinai)
When We Called (Moses)
Yet it is a Mercy from Your Sustainer
That You Warn A Community (People) Not Given a Warner Before,
So That They May Bethink Themselves (Use Their Reason).

    • One reason for the renewed call is for clarity/illucidation, to benefit the living (like technological advancement) and to allow it to be broadcast among those who never heard it before, again, meant to be of some benefit to them. 
    • It is never the case that it is a New Message, it can be text as Torah, Testament (Injeel) or Quran or some other Holy Scripture, the Message Originates from One Source, so no surprise here.
Surah 36 Ya.Seen

وَمَا عَلَّمْنَاهُ الشِّعْرَ
 وَمَا يَنبَغِي لَهُ 
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ
 وَقُرْآنٌ مُّبِينٌ (36:69   
nor does He (the Messenger) excel in it (it is not proper/meet for Him) .... 
Truly, it serves as a Reminder
and An Evidentiary Recitation 
(meant to Clarify various things, in Science, Law, Civility, Medicine, etc.)


لِيُنذِرَ مَن كَانَ حَيًّا
 وَيَحِقَّ الْقَوْلُ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ (36:70  

36:70 To Warn those who are Living 
and to Renew (Verify) the Message (the Call) to the Unfaithful 
(Non Believers--those not having heard the Message before).

    • To inform the one being called of God's Forgiveness (or Displeasure, serve to check someone's behavior):

Surah 2 Al.Baqara (COW, Calf, Heifer)

فَتَلَقَّى آدَمُ مِن رَّبِّهِ كَلِمَاتٍ 
فَتَابَ عَلَيْهِ 
إِنَّهُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ (2:37 

(2:37) And Adam Received Words from His Sustainer (Lord)
That He Forgave Him (God Relented toward Adam);

    • If the reason for the Call is not immediately obvious, it only means that it may have come a little too early (or in one isolated case, I think the information got destroyed in transit).

Surah 10 Yunus (Jonah)

وَيَقُولُونَ لَوْلاَ أُنزِلَ عَلَيْهِ آيَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ 
فَقُلْ إِنَّمَا الْغَيْبُ لِلّهِ 
فَانْتَظِرُواْ إِنِّي مَعَكُم مِّنَ الْمُنتَظِرِينَ (10:20

(10:20) And they say, "Why has there not been sent a (grand/spectacular) Omen from His Lord?" 
Say, "Only God Knows the Unseen (Or, basically, 'Here it is, you all just don't get it!); so, be patient (wait for it), I, too, anticipate it (I'll wait right along with you)."

8. There are Proper Times to Hear/Respond to the Valid Call and/or Caller.
  • Valid Callers know the Propriety/Protocol when calling; they Do Not call if someone is in their 'private' apartments 49:4. 
Surah 49 Hujurat

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُنَادُونَكَ مِن وَرَاء الْحُجُرَاتِ 
أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ (49:4    
49:4 Indeed, those calling You from behind the Hujurat (Your private apartments),
most of them are childish (ill-behaved, not sensible, unreasonable).


9. The Consequences of Making a Pretense of either Being a Legitimate Caller (either God or a Prophet) or posing as having heard a valid call, or falsifying the validity to a Sanctified Message, just may be worse than death.


Surah 11 Hud

وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللّهِ كَذِبًا 
أُوْلَـئِكَ يُعْرَضُونَ عَلَى رَبِّهِمْ وَيَقُولُ الأَشْهَادُ هَـؤُلاء
الَّذِينَ كَذَبُواْ عَلَى رَبِّهِمْ
أَلاَ لَعْنَةُ اللّهِ عَلَى الظَّالِمِينَ (11:18   
(11:18) And who can be more in the dark/oppressive (lost) than those who invent a lie about God; and when they are brought before their Lord and the Witnesses say, "These are they who lied about God, and such oppressors incur God's Condemnation."


Surah 6 Cattle (Al.An3am)
وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللّهِ كَذِبًا
 أَوْ قَالَ أُوْحِيَ إِلَيَّ 
وَلَمْ يُوحَ إِلَيْهِ شَيْءٌ 
وَمَن قَالَ سَأُنزِلُ مِثْلَ مَا أَنَزلَ اللّهُ 
وَلَوْ تَرَى إِذِ الظَّالِمُونَ فِي غَمَرَاتِ الْمَوْتِ 
وَالْمَلآئِكَةُ بَاسِطُواْ أَيْدِيهِمْ 
أَخْرِجُواْ أَنفُسَكُمُ الْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ عَذَابَ الْهُونِ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَقُولُونَ عَلَى اللّهِ غَيْرَ الْحَقِّ 
وَكُنتُمْ عَنْ آيَاتِهِ تَسْتَكْبِرُونَ (6:93

(6:93) Who can be more lost/in the dark/oppressive than someone who ascribes to God a lie,
 or claims, "This has been Revealed to me (from on High)," 
and nothing has been revealed to them.
To whomever says this, Say, "Perpetuate (Reveal) anything the like of what God Reveals!"
And if You can only see these lost (souls) during the throws of death,
when the Angels shackle their hands/restrain them by their hands
(Saying), "Out with your souls (this may be an idiom for 'they will make them confess)! Today you will earn (what you merit), severe punishment (chastisement) for that which you were ascribing to God without sanction,
and were derisive of His Signs (Messages)!"


Surah 40 Ghaffir

الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِالْكِتَابِ 
وَبِمَا أَرْسَلْنَا بِهِ رُسُلَنَا 
فَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ (40:70

(40:70) Those who belie Our Book (falsify the Quran, or disbelieve Sacred Scripture) and that which We Send with Our Messenger...they shall soon Know It (to be the Evident Truth and despair for not having learned during life, read in context 40:68-40:72).
  • Just so there is no misunderstanding as to what it is we consider The God around here & clearly it is not some guy or gal in a coma!
Surah 14 Ibrahim (Abraham)

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللّهَ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ بِالْحقِّ 
إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ (14:19)

14:19 Can you not see that God Created the Heavens and the Earth in Truth (with an Inner Truth); indeed, If He Wills He Can Replace you (Trades you in) to Bring About A New Creation.

وَمَا ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ بِعَزِيزٍ (14:20  

(14:20) And this is not any difficulty for God.

  • Satan calls, too--can't help anyone and cannot harm the faithful (those who believe the Truth), and in general, doesn't have any real information to share (like the code to my Swiss bank account or the address to my new house next door to Yours (Nice is nice).

Surah 114 An,Nas (People, Communities, Creation)
مِن شَرِّ الْوَسْوَاسِ الْخَنَّاسِ (114:4  
(114:4) (I seek refuge in God) From the Evil of the Whisperer who subdues 
(with what he is heard to whisper~a psychotronic weapon of a sort? 
don't know my name? 
thinks I'm pretty?
sneaks up on me in the restroom to demonstrate the cloaking device I gave him;
my kids knew better and stopped doing that the minute they could bus themselves.
--Okay, to be fair, it was the kitchen and He did thank me for the cloak.)

Surah 14 Ibrahim (Abraham)

وَقَالَ الشَّيْطَانُ لَمَّا قُضِيَ الأَمْرُ 

إِنَّ اللّهَ وَعَدَكُمْ وَعْدَ الْحَقِّ 
وَوَعَدتُّكُمْ فَأَخْلَفْتُكُمْ 
وَمَا كَانَ لِيَ عَلَيْكُم مِّن سُلْطَانٍ 
إِلاَّ أَن دَعَوْتُكُمْ فَاسْتَجَبْتُمْ لِي 
فَلاَ تَلُومُونِي وَلُومُواْ أَنفُسَكُم 
مَّا أَنَاْ بِمُصْرِخِكُمْ وَمَا أَنتُمْ بِمُصْرِخِيَّ 
إِنِّي كَفَرْتُ بِمَآ أَشْرَكْتُمُونِ مِن قَبْلُ 
إِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ (14:22

(14:22) And Satan says, once the order is carried out (God Decides-- the matter is decided/order is executed), "Truly, God Promised you a Truthful promise, and I promised you and deceived you (var. to oppose you, supplant you, fell back on my promise to you);  and I had no power over you except that I called you and you answered/responded to me. So, do not blame me, but blame yourselves (your own selves/souls). I didn't cry out to you and it's not for you to cry out to me
I do not believe in (reject) whatever you associate with me from before (that you espouse to me previously that I have any share in God's Dominion).
Indeed, the (real) oppressors have earned a severe punishment (to be tortured)."
(On a personal note, I do not condone torture).

Surah 11 Hud

فَإِن لَّمْ يَسْتَجِيبُواْ لَكُمْ 
فَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّمَا أُنزِلِ بِعِلْمِ اللّهِ 
وَأَن لاَّ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ 
فَهَلْ أَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ (11:14

(11:14) And when (your false gods) fail to respond to you (cannot answer you), then know that this (Quran) is Revealed to you with God's Sanction (Knowledge); and that, Truly,  there is no other deity except for Him. 
So, when will you submit (to Him)?


  • Why my confusion about this sad state of affairs...41:44 why in the Arabic language--(See Not Much of a Poker Face):
    • While I can no longer feign being clueless, the fact remains that I really don't understand how an unfortunate 'industrial accident' evolved into this much clarity, but initially, the writing did help take my mind off the monstrous headache. 
    • But, I now think the grievous suffering that caused was the coercive force that made this come about, and that's why I still think it was never intended for me to publish this--but I never got to say good-bye to my kids and was hoping somehow Word would get back to them.
    • All that and Arabic is not my primary spoken language.
    • And, I am not a Man--Hu-man, Wom(b)-man, but not a guy.

Surah 41 Fussilat

وَلَوْ جَعَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا أَعْجَمِيًّا 
لَّقَالُوا لَوْلَا فُصِّلَتْ آيَاتُهُ أَأَعْجَمِيٌّ وَعَرَبِيٌّ 
قُلْ هُوَ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هُدًى وَشِفَاء 
وَالَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرٌ 
وَهُوَ عَلَيْهِمْ عَمًى 
أُوْلَئِكَ يُنَادَوْنَ مِن مَّكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ (41:44  

(41:44) Had We Made (Brought) the Quran in a foreign language (Farsi, African, alien language); 
they would say, "Why have the Signs been imparted in a foreign (alien) language, and He (the Prophet) is an Arab?
Say, "It (the Quran/Recitation) is for the Believers (serves) as a Guidance and a Source of Health (Well-being).
As for those who do not believe, there is a deafness in their ears;
and to them it's obscure (they are blind to it)."
It's like calling them from a far away place (remote place--like the Planet Seddna!).
