And rely upon Allah ; And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs . . . & . . . Ve Allah’a tevekkül et ; Ve Allah, vekil olarak yeter. Al-Quran [33:3]

When Einstein saw a person who was living only for pleasure and interested only in having a good time, he would say, “He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice”.
If a person is given this large brain, his duty is not to merely satisfy his basic needs, but to create abstract ideas, philosophize, question life and existence. Our Creator speaks to us in the language of events. A person can understand this language merely by thinking, “What is our Creator’s message in this?”

There is an example of a town in France, which was flooding. Some people escaped to the roof of the church. The priest, however, stayed and said, “Let God come. Someone came to save him but the priest said, “God will save me.”He refused to get in, maintaining that God will save him. Then a boat came to rescue him. He refused to get in, maintaining that God will save him. Finally a helicopter came, but he sent that away too. When he passed over to the other world, the priest said, “Oh God, I prayed to you so much, but you did not save me.” Upon hearing this, God responded, “My foolish servant, I sent you a man and you didn’t come. I sent you a boat and you didn’t get in. I sent you a helicopter and you didn’t board. What more could I have done?

The language of events looks like this. We must look at every experience and try to find the meaning that was sent on that occasion…

We must look at every experience and try to find the meaning that was sent on that occasion. When we experience an event, we must think, “I wonder if this is a message from God. God communicates with people in this world through acts. Miracles are particular to prophets, but the Creator has countless ways in which to address us. God appears in the world under the name, al-Hakim (The All-Wise), and this name necessitates the existence of acts. If you do not abide these acts, it means that you misunderstand the attributes of God. God does not give without effort. We see that beautiful things are always begotten through tribulation. The laws of psychology have already been laid down, for these are in fact God’s laws. Acting in accordance with them does not hinder a person’s freewill, but it also does not absolve people from responsibility.

Einstein, sadece eğlenceyi merkeze alarak, “vur patlasın çal oynasın” diyerek yaşayan bir insanı gördüğünde “Bu insanda kocaman beyne ne gerek vardı, omurilik yeterdi” demiştir. Bu koca beyin insana verilmişse onun görevi sadece temel ihtiyaçları gidermek değil, soyut düşünce üretmek, felsefe yapmak, hayatı ve varoluşu sorgulamaktır..Yaratıcımız bizlerle olay diliyle konuşuyor. Bu dili de ancak “Yaratıcımızın buradaki mesajı nedir? diye düşünen insan anlayabilir.”

Bir örnek vardır. Fransa’da bir şehri sel basmış. İnsanlar kilisenin çatısına kaçmışlar. Papaz ise “Allah gelsin, beni kurtarsın” diyor. Birisi yardıma geliyor, papaz ona “Allah beni kurtaracak” diyor. Sonra onu kurtarmak için bir kayık gelir. İçine binmeyi reddeder. Papaz ona da “Allah beni kurtaracak” der. Ardından helikopter geliyor ama onu da kabul etmiyor. Papaz öbür dünyaya gittiğinde ise “Ey Allah’ım ben sana o kadar dua ettim, sen beni kurtarmadın” diyor. Bunun üzerine Allah “Ahmak kulum; ben sana adam gönderdim, gelmedin; kayık gönderdim, binmedin; helikopter gönderdim, binmedin. Daha ne yapayım?” diyor.
Olay dili buna benzerdir. Yaşadığımız her şeye dikkatle bakıp onun vesilesiyle gönderilen manayı bulmaya çalışmak…

Bir olay yaşadığımızda “ Acaba bu Allah ın bir mesajı mıdır?” diye düşünmemiz gerekir. Allah bu dünyada insanlarla sebebler vasıtasıyla iletişim kuruyor. Allah dünyada Hakim ismiyle tecelli ediyor ve bu isim sebeblerin varlığını gerektiriyor. Eğer sen sebeplere riayet etmiyorsan Allah in sıfatlarını yanlış biliyorsun demektir.  Allah çalışmadan vermiyor. Güzel şeylerin hep çileyle elde edildiğini görüyoruz. Koyulmuş psikoloji yasalari var; işte bunlar Allah’ın yasaları. Onlara uygun davranabilmek insanın özgür iradesini engellemiyor. İnsanın sorumluluğunu da ortadan kaldırmıyor.

Your life is nothing more than a love story. Between you and Allah. Nothing more. Every person, every experience, every gift, every loss, every pain is sent to your path for one reason and one reason only: to bring you back to him.

Hayatın, Allah’la arandaki bir aşk hikayesinden başka bir şey değil. Her insan, her deneyim, her nimet, her kayıp, her acı yoluna tek bir sebeple çıkıyor: Seni O’na geri döndürmek.

Yasmin Mogahed

Holding on to hope when everything is dark, is the greatest test of faith.

Her şey kapkaranlık olduğunda umuda tutunmak, en büyük iman sınavıdır.

Yasmin Mogahed

Practice patience; it is the essence of praise. Have patience, for that is true worship. No other worship is worth as much. Have patience; patience is the key to all relief. – Rumi

Two of the hardest tests in life: The patience to wait for the right moment and the courage to accept whatever you encounter.

Ruhsal yoldaki en zor iki sınav: doğru anı beklemek için sabır; ve karşılaştığımız şeyle hayal kırıklığına uğramamak için cesarettir.

 Paulo Coelho

A poet said,
Patience and victory are old friends. Victory arrives when patience is there.

Bir Şair dedi ki,
Sabır ve zafer eski dosttur. Zafer geldiğinde sabırda ordadır.

The patient, the true, the obedient, those who spend [in the way of Allah ], and those who seek forgiveness before dawn.

Sabredenler, doğru olanlar, gönülden boyun eğenler, infak edenler ve ‘seher vakitlerinde’ bağışlanma dileyenlerdir.

Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:17

To err is human; to forgive, divine…/…Yanılmak insanca; bağışlamak kutsalca bir iştir… Alexander Pope

Life comes down to a series of choices.

To hold on…

To let go…to forget…to forgive…

Which road will you take?

Hayat size bir dizi seçenek sunar.

Tutunmak…

Bırakmak… Unutmak… Affetmek…

Siz hangi yolu seçerdiniz?

Night Road by Kristin Hannah (Gece Yolu)

Take what is given freely, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.

Sen af yolunu tut, iyiliği emret, cahillerden yüz çevir.

Al-Quran [7:199]

There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error…/… Dinde zorlama yoktur. Çünkü doğruluk sapıklıktan iyice ayrılmıştır.

The foundation stone of the whole scheme is service. Service to the people, a service that will lighten, brighten, and make more profitable the lives of the majority who do the necessary work of the world.

True freedom is like an evergreen tree, which is free as well as restrained. While every tree is subjected to the same restrictions by nature, these restrictions are imposed to optimize the growth and development of a tree’s latent potential.

Freedom is a natural right of man, a spiritual privilege, a moral prerogative, and, above all, a religious duty. The Islamic concept of freedom is an article of faith, a solemn command from the Supreme Creator. It is built on the following fundamental principles. First, man’s conscience is subject to Allah only, to Whom every man is directly responsible. Secondly, every human being is personally responsible for his deeds and he alone is entitled to reap the fruits of his work. Thirdly, Allah has delegated to man the responsibility to decide for himself. Fourthly, man is sufficiently provided with spiritual guidance and endowed with rational qualities that enable him to make responsible, sound choices. Within the framework of this Islamic concept of freedom, there is no room for religious persecutions, class conflict, or racial prejudice. The individual’s right of freedom is as sacred as his right of Life; freedom is the equivalent of Life itself.

Anyone of you who sees wrong, let him undo it with his hand; and if he cannot, then let him speak against it with his tongue, and if he cannot do this either, then (let him abhor it) with his heart, and this is the least of faith.

The best of people is one from whom good accrues to humanity.

Deal gently with the people, and be not harsh; cheer them and condemn them not.”
(Prophet Muhummad- Peace be upon him)

There is no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error. Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the strongest bond that never breaks. Allahs knows all, and hears all things. (Qur’an, 2:256)

The Truth is from your Lord. Let him who wills, believe, and let him who wills, disbelieve. (Qur’an, 18:29)

Be a good person but don’t waste time to prove it. ~•~ İyi insan ol, fakat bunu ispatlamak için vakit harcama.

Be a good person but don’t waste time to prove it. Don’t let people pull you into their storms… Pull them into your Peace.

Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.

“Life consists of two days , one for you and one against you . So when it s for you don’t be proud or reckless , and when it s against you be patient , for both days are test for you.” (Ali RA)

When your failure brings you closer to your Creator, that’s NOT failure. That is your success. Thank the Almighty for it.

Allah heard the little ant. Do you think He didn’t hear you calling on Him? 
(Muhummad-peace be upon him)

A story of wise old man and a cat & Yaşlı bilge bir adam ve bir kedinin hikayesi…

Posted in DÜŞÜNDÜM, HAYAT, The articles in English & stories, İSTANBUL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/09/2017 by Semra Polat

“A wise old man was sitting at the river bank when he saw a cat that had fallen into the water, flailing around, trying to save itself from drowning.

The man decided to save the cat. He stretched his hand out but was scratched by the cat. He pulled his hand back in pain. However, a minute later he stretched his hand out again to save the cat, but it scratched him again, and again he pulled his hand back in pain.

Another minute later he was yet again trying for the third time!!

A man, who was nearby watching what was happening, yelled out:

“O wise man, you have not learned your lesson the first time, nor the second time, and now you are trying to save the cat a third time?”

The wise man paid no heed to that man’s scolding, and kept on trying until he managed to save the cat.

He then walked over to the man, and patted his shoulder saying:

“My son…it is in the cat’s nature to scratch, and it is in my nature to love and have sympathy. Why do you want me to let the cat’s nature overcome mine !?!!”

My son: Treat people according to your nature, not according to theirs, no matter what they are like and no matter how numerous are their actions that harm you and cause you hurt sometimes.

And do not pay heed to all the voices that loudly call out to you to leave behind your good qualities merely because the other party is not deserving of your noble actions.

When you live to give happiness to others, Allaah Subhānahu wa Ta’ālā will send you those who will live to give happiness to you:

“Is the reward for ihsan (good) [anything] but ihsan (good)?” [Ar-Rahman, 55:60]

“Yaşlı bilge bir adam nehir kenarında oturuyordu. Suya düşmüş bir kedi gördü. Kedi kendini boğulmaktan kurtarmak için sağa sola çırpınıyordu.

Adam kediyi kurtarmaya karar verdi. Elini uzattı ama kedi tarafından tırmalanmıştı. Acı içinde elini çekti. Fakat bir dakika sonra kediyi kurtarmak için yine elini uzattı. Ama kedi yine onu tırmaladı. Ve adam tekrar elini acı içinde geri çekti.

Başka bir dakika sonra, üçüncüye tekrar deniyordu.

Yakınlarda izleyen bir adam seslendi:

“Ey bilge adam! Birincisinde dersini öğrenmedin. İkincisinde de öğrenmedin. Ve şimdi kediyi üçüncüye kurtarmaya mi çalışıyorsun?”

Bilge Adam diğer adama hiç aldırış etmeden kediyi kurtarmaya başarana kadar devam etti.

Sonrasında adamın yanına gelip omzuna hafifçe vurup dedi ki:

“Oğlum tırmalamak kedinin doğasında var. Sevmek ve empati duymak ise benim doğamda var. Neden benden kedinin doğasının benimkine üstün gelmesine izin vermemi istiyorsun?

Oğlum, insanlara kendi doğana göre davran, onlarınkine göre değil. Onlar nasıl olurlarsa olsunlar. Sana zarar veren ve kalbinin kırılmasına sebep olan sayısız davranışları olsa bile!

Karşı taraf güzel davranışlarını hak etmiyor diye, iyi özelliklerini arkanda bırakman için sana yüksek sesle seslenen bütün o seslere aldırış etme.

Başka bir insanın mutluluğuna sebep olduğun hiçbir an icin asla pişmanlık duyma, o kişi bunu hak etmese bile!

İyiliği, iyilikle ödüllendirecek bir Rabb’in olduğu gerçeği sana yeterli olsun.”

“İyiliğin karşılığı yalnız iyilik değil midir?” [Rahman Suresi, 55:60]
