QULU / EAT

 

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF QULU / “EAT” in the context of the book Quran?

 

2:168 - O mankind! Eat of what (is) in the earth lawful (and) good. And (do) not follow (the) footsteps (of) the Shaitaan. Indeed, he (is) to you an enemy clear. – Standard translation

 

 ‏يَٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ كُلُوا۟ مِمَّا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ حَلَلًۭا طَيِّبًۭا وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا۟ خُطُوَتِ ٱلشَّيْطَنِ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّۭ مُّبِينٌ

 

According to the traditional translation this verse is saying “O Mankind كُلُوا    EAT WHAT IS LAWFUL AND GOOD and DO NOT FOLLOW SATAN. Indeed he for you an open enemy.

 

The above verse is equating Allah’s command of eating lawful good food with eating unlawful food. Eating unlawful food is like following satan’s step. I hope my inference is right?

 

Now let’s see what satan command us to do in the next verse

 

إِنَّمَا يَأْمُرُكُم بِٱلسُّوٓءِ وَٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَأَن تَقُولُوا۟ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ

 

2: 169 - Only he commands you to (do) the evil and the shameful and that you say about Allah what not you know. – Standard translation

 

Pay attention to the word إِنَّمَا / ONLY, it means the satan is ONLY ordering us to be evil, shameful and say about Allah what you don’t know – Here the satan is not commanding us to EAT haram / unlawful food.

 

How can “saying about Allah what you don’t know” be the opposite of eating كُلُوا

 

It must be clear by now that we oppose or fight Satan through enriching (كُلُوا) ourselves through knowledge, intellect and intelligence is كُلُوا . The essence of the word qulu in the book Quran is used for consuming or enriching ourselves by seeking knowledge and not by eating halal foods. The essence of QULU is to be thoughtful, cautious, consume intelligence and enrich ourselves with knowledge so that we do not follow Satan.

 

Does this mean those who eat pork, lizards, snakes, insects or other types of food not permitted by “Islamic scholars” or eat not properly slaughtered meat and drink alcohol follow the footsteps of Satan?

MUSLIM

 

The word Muslim مُسْلِمًا is a qualifying noun / adjective, active participle (form iv). The term muslim has a very deep connotation. It is not like a degree that has to be qualified or complete a course like a doctor, lawyer, engineer or a chartered accountant the list is endless. The qualification of a muslim needs no degree or certificate or 40 days or years of religious course. The fact is neither one can be a muslim by virtue of taking birth in a "muslim family" nor by blindly following some Imams or scholars. You have to earn the title by continuously struggling against our own psyche or soul. To be sound and peaceful or remain a Muslim in any situation is not easy except for the humble and patient. Being a Muslim is not even about worshipping a single god or believing in many gods. It’s all about how we manage our thought process while peacefully fulfilling the affairs of life (deen). A muslim originally is a natural conscious mindset that surrenders to sound reason, logic and peace irrespective of circumstances. If our affair of life is not organised systematically and peacefully we are not qualified to fit into the definition of Muslim irrespective of how devotedly we are following the rituals of respective religious sect. Peace and Soundness of conscious mind is Islam. A Muslim cannot do anything which is unsound, unethical and unreasonable.

QURAN THE BOOK OF SELF REALIZATION

QURAN THE BOOK OF SELF REALIZATION

The content of the book Quran is not for the purpose of an eulogy that continuously praises an unknown God - It is not also for individuals to memorize or sing it in a rhythmic tone or speaks about the feats of "The Creator God" to get extra rewards - The book is also not also about some "Holy Family" - The book Quran is not even about promoting God and His team of angels, messengers, prophets... The book is also not about community building or society laws neither it is about marriage, divorce or dominating female gender.


It is an anti religious and anti Sky God book. It is neither a biography nor a book of moral science that teaches permanent values or that gives an account of someone else's life or character so that we could emulate or learn from them. In fact, the specialty of the script of the book Quran is that it penetrates deep inside the reader's mind through various captivating parables and makes its presence felt, as if it is directly talking about our inner self (nafs) and how our thought control us while we remain spectators by witnessing the experience, the happenings within us. The book only talks about self (NAFS), discussing anything else is an insult of that magnificent book.

MISWAK

The miswak (miswaak, siwak, sewak, Arabic: سواك‎ or مسواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree (known as arāk, أراك, in Arabic). It is reputed to have been used over 7,000 years.

I don't know why it is exclusively attributed to Islam and Muslims when the entire world including the arch enemy of Islam Abu Jahl too was using it. As far as I know there was no invention of tooth paste or tooth brush then 🖌️- So using miswak was also a habitual practice (sunnat) of Abu Jahl too.
Don't make natural things holy or unholy in the name of religion.

QURAN IS NOT THE BOOK OF VERSES



Quran is not the book of verses but it is the book of signs (آيات‎) which contains established (ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ) road maps (ٱلصِّرَٰطَ) for the agitated minds (الناس‎). The entire theme and context of the book Quran is human mind. One of the meaning of nafs نفس is human mind or psyche.

The truth is we all unknowingly serve and seek help from our own knowledgeable mind or the universal conscious mind (رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ) - The right guidance for the right path is also given provided we serve our conscious mind properly.

إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ

ٱهْدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٰطَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ

We will never understand the book Quran if we study it in the context of human history or history of "The Biblical or Islamic Prophets" or in the context of "Heavenly God."

GO BEYOND WHAT YOUR PREDECESSORS COULD NOT SEE

 

Life must not be a daily battle to excel. It's a continuous struggle of thought process swinging between gloom and glow. Enjoy the challenge of roller coaster called Life. It must not be a fight against each other but against one's own self.
Life is a self searching project to understand the mystery of self, origin of thoughts, efforts to understand our own script of life, self's urges, self's desire, self's purpose, self's role and freedom to seek the enlightenment to choose the right path. A struggle to see with our own eyes and think with our own heads rather than depending or relying on writings we don't understand.
One of the popular stand of the masses while arguing is that they stood on the solid grounds of what their forefathers believed and what the majority followed. I don't summarily reject what our predecessors thought or what society thinks. But are we going to stop at where they ended or are we going to probe the pages of life further? There could be nothing more leisurely and luxurious than to believe in the illusion of a living comfortably while being parasitic on borrowed thoughts. We can rest in the comfort of our parental upbringing but the problem is the world is not standing still, it keeps on changing. And ideas have to evolve, grow further and must be conducive to adaptation according to the demand of the current situation. We cannot rely on old solutions to open new doors. We just cannot afford to relax and wait for the imaginary "Day of Judgement" or judge people by calling names - One has to take accounts for their own thoughts and deeds every moment. The alibi of the borrowed ideas will not take you anywhere except in the labyrinth of darkness.
The serious question to ask is whether my ideas are my own or borrowed. We often make others' thoughts as our own because of the inability to think for ourselves. This inability to think is often induced, institutionalised and celebrated by those having herd mentality. We have made simple religions as specialised subjects. We look to "experts" to do the religious thinking for us like how we sometimes let the quacks do the medical thinking for our own health and we don't ever make an effort to ponder independently about the consequences it may have on our mind and body. We don't feel like educating ourselves on such important matters. We let others to do thinking on behalf of our own thoughts. I would fain to buy this argument if any sane thinking mind accepted alibi.
Thinking is too important to be left in the hands of either the clerics or the ideological zealots. This is not just a matter of physical life and death. This is even much bigger. It is a question of our existence. It is a question of living between Light and Darkness.
Our own mind is the vibrant messenger don't bury it and sing unnecessary hymns upon the "holy personalities". Usually people are dumb and deaf, they don't realise it and have been ignoring the living inherent voice of the messenger for a very long time. Its high time that we heed the inherent messages, signs, indicators that are much clearer, self explanatory, relevant to self, pure, authentic & free than the what is served to us from the clergy's pulpit.






May be an image of text that says 'Le de ke apne paas faqat ek nazar to hai Kyon dekhen zindagi ko kisi ki nazar se hum Maana ke is zameeñ ko na gulzaar kar kar sake Kuch khaar kam to kar diye, guzre jidhar se hum In all, we have just one view, our own Why should we see the world through someone else's eyes? We could not turn the world into a garden, we accept But at least we removed some thorns from the paths we trod -Sahir Ludhianvi'

SHIRK

 

It is often misunderstood that mentioning Allah along with Rasul is like association of partnership (shirk) but what we failed to understand is that the book Quran emphasis that obeying rasul is like obeying allah. Those who believe Allah as a God and Rasul as His human deputy will never understand the message of the book Quran on the contrary they will be lost in the History of Middle East "Prophets".



"MUSLIMS" DON'T WANT TO COME OUT OF THEIR "HISTORICAL PRISON" 😔

 "MUSLIMS" DON'T WANT TO COME OUT OF THEIR "HISTORICAL PRISON"

😔
Isn't it foolishness and fall of human intellect to personify and conceive an Unimaginable God as a fathomable Owner of a Big Enterprise❓Dictating His terms and conditions in old Arabic language to a poor orphan during the last 23 years of his life. Mohammad bin Abdullah (saw) who reportedly died in 632 CE was that special Chosen Man of God from Arabian Peninsula.
Traditions say Mohammad (S) was entrusted by God to lead mankind from darkness to light. For that purpose we were made to believe that his chest was opened and his heart 💔 was purified by an Angel when he was still a child. After the age of 40 he regularly used to receive messages of guidance from God through 24x7 Gabriel (a.s) courier service as and when the situation demanded. The blessed chosen one (mustufa) even travelled across seventh heaven to meet his Lord God.
Looking from the traditional point of view it is believed that the job of unlettered Mohammad bin Abdullah (pbuh) was to spread and implement the Laws of God upon the entire Earth 🌍 It is strongly believed that the book of God is dictated in old Arabic language and is meant for the entire mankind irrespective of what language they know. Learning the Quranic language is a part of "Islamic culture" and matter of pride for every individual Muslim.
The devote followers of Mohammad (saw) are supposed to strictly adhere to the "Divine Laws" of the Quran by learning Qur'anic Arabic with the understanding of the manufactured historical context. According to Islamic scholars God revealed particular verses on specific occasion to Mohammad bin Abdullah (pbuh) for imparting fixed solutions for the benefit of entire mankind. Later on it became incumbent on every sincere mohammadans to persuade his mission of spreading the archaic contextual teachings across the globe 🌎 and even in this modern world.
This mission is undertaken to please the Imperceptible God because if He is satisfied with His devotees for correctly practicing the given commandments then they are entitled for an easy passage to the promised land filled with beautiful young maidens, exotic food, rivers flowing with water, milk, honey and alcohol in Paradise.
The gullible followers fell in the trap of enchanting Paradise. Apart from understanding the book Quran they also made an extra efforts to study the "genuine history books," by searching for the right contextual happenings for the particular situational verses, without which it is said the message cannot be inferred correctly.
The present understanding of the entire Quran depends on the particular situation, circumstances and happenings of "history" before 632 CE.
Unfortunately this is the only text book in the world where common sense, expertise of language, grammar and context within is ignored or is less important than the outside context forged by the third parties after 632 CE. The creators of the Qur'anic context were astonishingly not even the contemporaries of author of the book. This is a tremendous mockery of a Great Arabic Literature by none others but by those who claim that they love the book Quran more than their lives.
What a tragedy❗ A book said to be the word of Arabic God but cannot be understood without the crutches of history written by Persian men.
Bigger concern is majority of "Muslims" believe their brain is incapable to correctly guide them so they need to rely on the catalogue which they cannot comprehend. This is the reason they continue to believe in such unpalatable mythologies. A major reason for their downfall and humiliation is that they think the translation of the book done by their respective scholars is real message of the Quran. 🙏
