white lie

Post by Mohsen » Sun Sep 27, 2015 6:28 pm


Hi Hurieh,

Thank you for that caricature , I got the meaning of it ,but why the muscle is under magnifier , I didn’t get it ,by control +Z everything goes back to former position , so if the man become young ,his muscle is powerful , it doesn’t need a magnifier !!

for the white lie
I think the act of saying something which is untrue in order to deceive someone and misuse it is a sin and we should avoid it,

but every day we say a lot of white lie
I came back home from office , my wife says , Are you tired , I say no.., has anything happened today ,you look sad ,. I say no .. I eat the food and say it was very delicious.. In a party when they say ,would you like to eat more .. I say no.
All of my answers are white lie

Some white lies are recommended in our Islamic instruction
Have you ever made that kind of sin.. I say no
Do you know about that man who is smoking cigarette.. I say no
Do you have satellite dish … I say no

All the best,
Mohsen

Hi Mortaza,

The smell of fried egg cover all the kitchen space, the shining radishes are winking on fresh vegetables, green pepper and salt are beside the pan, hot sesame bread.
This is our menu, no need to spoon and fork, with a big piece of bread take half of the eggs from the pan and put a handful vegetable inside the bread beside the fried egg, put it in the mouth.
In this cuisine nothing spare, no need to wash the plate, no spoon and fork, when finish, the pan is put in the sink, immersing for one hour, a volunteer is wanted to wash it

You welcome to my workshop
Mohsen

White Lie

Post by setareh » Tue Sep 29, 2015 7:05 am

Dear Hurieh how are you doing? I hope everything is great with you. Thanks for giving us a reason to write. You asked us about our opinion for white lie. There is no doubt that honesty is the best policy, because to support a lie we have to tell another lie and this process would go on; if we don’t do anything about it, it would turn into habit. A bad habit which might be so strong to overcome.
Once I was listening to a person’s speech and he pointed out that absolute honesty might not be necessary “ oh you look ugly today”, but honesty tempered with love would be the best.
In my opinion if we try to boost someone’s self-confidence or persuade them to enhance what they are doing; there is nothing wrong with telling white lie. I don’t mean to flatter someone by being dishonest, because in the long run it’s even more harmful than saying the bitter truth.
Sometimes by overlooking somebody’s faults and magnifying their good traits we are actually trying to help them, so I think if white lies are going to help someone are better than absolute honesty which might hurt people’s feelings and have negative impact on them. Let me give you an example; if you tell me “ setareh your writing is not good; you make so many mistakes. }: Is it going to help? Even if after what you said you try to introduce some nice books, but you already ruined my self-confidence and eager for writing. Now if you tell me that “Setareh you are good at writing, keep up the good work. :-D Although you make some mistakes but that’s the way we learn. We learn through our mistakes. So here you might tell me a little white lie, but you have tried to encourage me to write and this is my point.
Your white lie here is more likely to help me than your absolute truth. I hope I can convey my message.
Wish you all the best,
Setreh

White lies!

Post by behnam » Tue Sep 29, 2015 6:51 pm

Hi all,

It was a grief to me that more than 4000 pilgrims died(were killed actually) because of carelessness, shortcoming, mismanagement, selfishness, arrogance, and irresponsibility of Saudi Arabia governments in Mina! What they did is not only against Islam, but also against humanity. They proved that they are still living based on their before-Islam ceremonies. Muslims should not forget this catastrophe. Although Mina revealed Saudi Arabia government's true personality, the price was unfortunately high!

About white lies, in my opinion, white lies are much better than black truths! However, how much white a lie can be?

All the best,

Hi Wooseok,
I hope you enjoy during the Chuseok, What is the thanks giving day? , Is it a religious day ? In Iran we have not a special day for giving thanks, because the religious people every day thanks God for what is given to them.
In Iran we have national holiday , one day we call it Independent Oil day , and 7 days for new year.
For the proverb “They count their chicken at the end of fall”
It means that a wise person won’t be tempted by immediate result but see the end.
For example: one of student ( a lazy student ) doesn’t study hard during the semester, he also tease the other students with snide remarks, so the other students tell him “the chickens will be counted at the end of fall” it means, at the final exam when he get a bad mark ,he will be very sad ,he understands that you shouldn’t waste your time during the semester ,but at that time regretting has not any benefit for him .
Have a good day.

Hi Mohsen

It is been ages, and the Chuseok, Korean Thanks Giving day, was over. I was back to my university, so everything which I have done came back to routine. The Chuseok is not religious day. Yet, Korea society has been rooted in Confucianism, so many Korean people hold a memorial service for their ancestors in Confucian proprieties. Republic of Korea assures the freedom of religion, so in current society, it is not obligation to keep Confucian proprieties.

The proverb is very meaningful, and it makes me burn again. Recently, I have seen a movie named of "Sado", Sado is the name of crown prince killed by his father, King, at the time of the Joseon Dynasty, previous Korea. Its time background is 17~18C. In the movie, there was words that is very interesting. It is 'see the arrow that flies the sky, how honorable!'. I cannot appreciate the meaning perfectly yet, but maybe I know.

If it is possible to watch Korean Movie, I recommend you to see Sado that is based on Korea history. Performance was also the best and realistic.

Then, I have a lot more to say, but I will stop here for today.
Have a nice day.
Lee, Wooseok

Garden!

Post by behnam » Thu Oct 01, 2015 10:09 am

Hi friends,

When there is a beautiful garden full of flowers, fruit trees, a pool in the middle of it, special care is needed to protect the garden from many dangers. Jealousy is one of the biggest threats to such a unique garden. The owners must be careful and armed with different weapons against any kind of threat! This is the rule in every aspect of life. If you don't arm yourself, you wife, your husband, ..what you own may be taken from you, either by direct fighting or with different tricks. We should be always armed against the enemies, since we have got a beautiful garden!

All the best,

In Iran people don’t believe in what is rights in your society , as I said before what you consider as the rights for men and women in your society leads to the situation which you have now a days, I don’t want to explain about the situation of family and freedom of have sex … , and how many students and blacks should be killed because of the wrong freedom in your society.
