praying like a Muslim

.

introduction

I were used to go to church every Sunday. As there are seldom Sunday Masses in the church in this village, I got help from my Muslim neighbor to learn how to pray like a Muslim. Something I can do by myself in my home.

I like to pray to, praise and thank God/Allah

I document everything in a Google drive presentation at

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1VUorXR1EdPrvpF5r2VzRc3Y4iD2zdTN1iEDJgKpdwnI/edit?usp=sharing 

These are the five prayers where you can hear the first Surah “Al-Fatihah” being recited. once every raka. I can recite myself Al-Fatiha except the last meaning. I like to do it thinking about the message of the meanings i agree with.

Recitation! Not song.

I thought myself that Muslims sing the content of the Quran but I learned that they don’t. That’s their way to recite. Click on the play button in https://quran.com/1/1 to listen to the recitation of Al-Fatihah. There are different reciter. I prefer those who recite slowly like Sheikh Husary, that i listen to in my Android app IQuran 

The muslims does not sing the Quran.

i discovered today that a Christian girl also thought the Muslims sings the Quran so she started 2015 to sing parts taken from the Bible. 🙂

She is a ambitious good believer but I think it would be better if the Bible were “recited” like the Muslims do as I personally have difficulties to hear the Bible texts in her song with all the music and that distracting  girl dancing around like a Sufi.

The Quran Muslim recitation on the other hand are easily understood. And todays recitations may sound like Angel Gabriel did reciting to Mohammed in the cave over Mekka.

I presume that  God did not  sing the verses e.g. to Moses or to John with background some for the time modern music (not pop of course).

Salat – prayer

the prayer time for any part in the world is  given in  http://salah.com/

Fajr – Sunrise Salat – 3:26

This salat is done very early. I can not manage to do it if I don’t happen to wake up myself the night. I did it once when I woke up at 3 am and after taht Salat I  slept very well.  With my stroke related mental fatigue. I  avoid to interrupt my night sleep with a alarm clock.

Salat when I am alone

Whe nI am not together with a Muslim I do it myself looking at these videos. I recite what I am able to otherwise do I listen and read the prayer texts.

I alway wash my self and my room as I want to show order to Allah, something Allah has give humanity. But when I am alone I don’t cover my knees as I see no reason to do it as Allah sees everything anyway.

2. Dhuhr Salat from 13:13 to about 17:00

3. Asr Salat at 17:28 to about 21:00

4. Mahgrib Salat at 21:19 to about 22

5. Ishaa Salat at 22:37 to about 3 

Christians and Muslims  worship the same God. I feel good to make Muslim prayer.

Sunnas in the raqas:

Mohammand (PBUH) prayers Sunnah were written down in Hadith. Some of them are used in Salat. here are a few of these 

سبحانك    اللهم وبحمدك   وتبارك اسمك وتعالى   جدك ولا إله غيرك

ghayruka  ilaha wala  jad-duka wa ta’ala  ismuka watabaraka   wabihamdika Allahuma  Subhanaka

Subhanaka   Allahuma
Glory be to you, O Allah,

wabihamdika watabaraka
and all praises are due unto You,

ismukaj  ad-duka   ghayruka
and blessed is Your name and high is Your majesty 
and none is worthy of worship but you.”

.

Other texts in Salat

Women- beautiful human beings created by God

.

introduction

God created man and woman.

As it is described in the Bible the woman was a “gift” to Man something that has been misinterpreted many times by sick men.

Women are not things you can do whatever with like with gifts.

I remember a muslim young girl, a pupil of mine who one day came to schools with Hijab hiding her wonderful long dark hair. I asked her what happened. She told me a classmate who had been using Hijab since months back and maybe didn’t want to be the only Hijab girl, said to her “It is better you have Hijab as you will soon anyway have to use it.

Hijab

The reason why Muslim women must use Hijab.

I have wondered about the Muslim custom to hide the hair.

According to a story I read some time ago, prostitutes from fine families in Iraq used Niqab to hide their face.  From that period of time, came the idea was born that women must hide their face or their hair to not be considered prostitutes.

This story was spread in Turqey by the Turkish government that did not like Hijab.

In a Ted ith the title ”

What does the Quran really say about a Muslim woman’s hijab? 

 “Samina Ali tells  about the story of the Hijab and in minute 13 about how clerics made addings in the Quran translations:

“…. that verse I told you about earlier: 

“O Prophet, tell your wives, your daughters,  and the women of the believers to draw upon themselves their garments, this is better, so that they not be known and molested.”   (  that is read in quran.com/33/59

Some clerics have added a few words to that, so that in certain translations of the Quran,  that verse reads like this:

O Prophet, tell your wives, your daughters, and the women of the believers, to draw upon themselves their garments,
parentheses, a garment is a veil that covers the entire head and the face, the neck and the breast all the way down to the ankles”
 
 

 

I dont know the reason why nuns always must use niqab and all women in Italy must hide their hair before they enter the  Italian Dome in Milano and in the Vatican. 

Mary was presumed to hide her hair at the time of Jesus. Maybe as it a Jewish custom?  If someone knows share below.

Human flowers created by God.

( Google image search: “Somali fotomodels “

The woman is a intelligent skilled flower created by God/Allah. Why hide such a Beautiful creation?  Svetlana Kapanina is  a great woman showing beauty and talent in the Sky.

Deeyah Kahn is a love at first site. I listened to http://deeyah.com/ in her Ted speech. A speech that was difficult to listen as it triggered anxiety in me. But we must face reality now and then to understand what to do next. She shares deep pains and a view that  explains why e.g. one of my studens died in Syria as a member of Isis. A really strong speech by a beautiful and very intelligent woman and thinker. Listen to her. 

I admire this young girl like I admire my femminist daughter.

Men or instinct driven quadrupedal animals

Men must learn to behave like real men, not like animals! Correctly sentenced Pedophiles (preasts especcially) or  multiple  raper psychopaths, should be given the  choise:

prison for life or castration. 

( Image source: www.beginningboutique.com.au )

All men must learn to behave like loving men

and always respect women wherever they are, in bikini on the beach, with  or without Hijab in the town anywhere.

 

 

 

Sexual distortions in Christianity

Again a example of sexual distortion or perversion,

After the huge priest pedophile story in Chile 

now the truth is coming to the surface also in Italy. 

I priest with a 10 year old girl in a car behind the Firenze railway station…

I am proud to have married in Göteborg with the first Swedish Luteran priest and I feel good to talk with a Lutheran priest who has a wife.

We know hat  Sexuality is part of the human nature.

If we suppress sexuality with sense of guilt, sexuality becomes distorted and perverted as we see so often  in this world with

  • rapes
  • pedophily
  • pornography

It is time for the Christian Church to review the dreamy Biblical vision of immortality were sexuality is not needed and instead driven by the Devil.

Giordano Bruno wrote about the Dominicans screaming in the night in his autobiography before his death. Boccaccio wrote in his Decameron about the monks and nuns having encounters in the darkness.

But Catholic priests who are married or femail priests is still  just a dream in the Catholic church that is driven by and depending on old ignorant dogmas . The Catholic church is still thousand years behind with the distorted idea that sexuality is not needed and driven by the devil.

The Christian and especially the Catholic church
need to change it view and policy. 

  1. A sane sexuality is given us by God and not sinful
  2. Sexuality and must be kept free  
    from sickness, violence and perversions.
  3. We can make this Earth become a Paradise
  4. But there is no Paradise om Earth 
    without happy humans and childrens.
     

Let the priests marry and have a healthy sexuality.

Let women become priests.
Like Paul recommended many talented women spread the gospel.

Have you found a picture of a Paradise with childrens?
I found the image below of a Paradise with happy people and childrens in https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1102003056  Jehowas believe in the Resurrection with a eternal body . If a Resurrection Day will come as The Bible and the Quran tells us, only God knows how this world will be shaped and become.
