Note the word "blessed" here is an adjective and not pronounced as the verb "blessed". See:

Thank you Joe , I had no attention to pronunciation of words , Do the English people really observe these tiny rules when speaking?

Thank you Mohsen. I would say that these are not really “tiny rules” but fundamental and automatic to native English speakers, not just English people. Though admittedly some of those words do occasionally trip up even native speakers ;-)

I believe the blessings of Ramadan are generally held to include the opening of the gates of Heaven and the locking of the gates of Hell.

I must confess Mohsen, I had the same question as you, especially about the gates closing at the end of Ramadan. And I don't know the answer. Do you have the answer?

Hi Safari,
Yes the gates of heaven always is open , but in Ramadan Allah support the servants more than ever to pass through the gates.Ramadan is the month of the purity of one’s heart and it is the month of forgiveness. This is because in this month, Allah the Exalted shows more kindness to forgiveness compared to other months of the year. It has been said in a narration that “If you are not forgiven in Ramadan, then when will you be forgiven?” . If someone fails to achieve divine forgiveness and mercy in the month of Ramadan – during which the gates of divine mercy and forgiveness are open to humans – when will they have the blessing to do so

Hi Mohsen and Safari,
How are you doing? I hope you are you doing good and enjoying every moment of Ramadan. About opening the gates of Heaven in this holy month, I would like to say that gates of Heaven are always open to people who believe in Allah and have faith in his greatness and do good deeds. Good deeds must be saved and protected by Taghva like protecting money in bank. Putting money in a pocket with hole results in losing it.
About Ramadan, it seems Allah multiply our good deeds by a big number in this holy month. Why? That is his decision as a Lord. Instead of asking "why" we should take this opportunity to fill our bank account.
There are different interpretations to "open gates". I am sure you both know much better than me. I think that phrase is used to somehow describe the great forgiveness of Allah in Ramadan Karim. Human beings have spiritual and physical sides. The physical side has many things in common with animals. These similarities are sometimes called natural instincts. Fulfilling these physiological needs takes the majority of our energy and attention in a way that we ignore the spiritual side whereas it is human beings' main characteristic which differs us from animals. Actually, the phrase "Fatabareka Allaho Ahsan Al-Khaleghin" is used by Allah to show the importance of spiritual side of humans.
Fasting in Ramadan is like fighting with those animal
Instincts which allows our main side to grow. Growing our spiritual side results in spreading the world of sprit and restricting the world of material. It is somehow similar to converting mass to light by E=mc^2. When we become light, we travel fast and gates lose their ordinary meanings. They become widely open to us. We become light and we know that "Allah is the light of Earth and heavens".
Becoming lile light is just an analogy to make the concept understandable.
Therefore, I believe Allah's special forgiveness and mercy in this month on the one hand, and our fight with animal instincts on the other hand, give us a chance to fly rather than walk, so that gates cannot act as obstacles since flying birds are in the sky. Gates become useless in preventing us form flying towards Heaven and joining our main definition which is Allah.
I want you my dear brothers, to remember me and help me when you are flying and I am behind the gates.

All the best,

Hi Firefox the great!
Thank you very much for replying and saying good things. Your post is full of kindness and affection, and I get that by my heart.
Right now I am on the train, going to Tabriz. I am using my smartphone. Typing with thick fingers is really difficult. :lol:
I am sure, you are flying like eagles with wide wings. You are not standing behind gates.
I am a physicist. As you know, physics involves in matter and the laws which govern their interactions. Their interactions are often shown by mathematical formulas.
Most of the physicists(Albert Einstein is excluded) do not believe in God. But, they are mistaken. They must know that something which is described by formula cannot be God. By the way, physicists have no right to judge on the existence of God through using physical laws. Steaven Hawking(I am not sure about the spelling) mistakenly said he did not see God in his formulas. But, he should have known, nobody would worship his inside-formula-seen God. In other words, in formula described God does not deserve to be worshiped by human beings.
Human beings are swimming like what fish do in oceans. They don't have any feelings about water. They are inside water, they don't understand it! Quite funny! If one takes fish and throws it out of the ocean it will know what water is. Fish will understand water when it comes out of water, but we human beings cannot understand what God is because there isn't any empty place; without God.
A physicist fish may believe ocean is the only world. He might say there is nothing else. Well, poor fish does not know anything about the sky above ocean. In some aspects, we human beings are like fish. We think what we see exists and what we don't see doesn't exist! Selfishness and self-orienting do not let us fly in the sky. We are attached to the ocean, and we prevent ourselves from flying.
Finally, I hope Ramadan gives us a chance to fly.
I wish you success in Ramadan and flying.

All the best,

Dear Behnam,
Thank you for your nice analogy .
At present I am close to be a light , because I have come back home , peckish , and should be ready to go to volleyball club at 6 PM .. I should rest a little to refurbish my figure and refresh my energy.
I had a dream last night , I saw one my dearest relative which had passed away many years ago. it was one of my wishes to see him for many year , and last night I met him , we both were very happy , maybe it is the reason that I am close to be light .. in fact today i am very happy and sometime weeping because of happiness :!!: :!!: :!!: :!!:

International Day of Light!

Post by behnam » Wed May 15, 2019 5:06 pm

Hi my dear friends,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing good. Tomorrow is the International Day of Light. 16th May is the birthday of the first Laser. It is the birthday of Ebnee-Heysam; a Muslim famous scientist who studied light scientifically for the first time one thousand years ago.

Light is an important part of human beings' life. It had been with us from the beginning of our history on the Earth.

Light has unique characteristics. For instance, in some cercomictance it behaves like waves, in some others it behaves like particles! Depends on which feature of light is measured or examined it decides to act either as wave or particle.

My PhD field is in photonics that is investigating the light-matter interactions and managing as well as controlling light and in photonic devices. That's an interesting subject.l do love it.

Light is the only thing that Allah has used to make an analogy between himself and it. It shows the importance and uniqueness of light.

All the best,

Am I right to say that light is just part of the electromagnetic spectrum? (Which includes for example ultra-violet and infra-red, and perhaps much much more.)

And so the whole electromagnetic spectrum has unique properties?

Or is it only light (which as I understand it is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum visible to human beings - and some other animals)?

Hello Behnam

Very interesting analysis.

I wonder why some things have unique properties.

And is it true that water has unique properties too, like only water can exist in three states (solid, liquid, gas) and only water expands when it freezes?

Hello Safari the great!

How are you? I hope you are fine. You are quite right. Light refers to the visible part of electromagnetic spectrum. Actually, light is responsible for the sense of human beings' sight. Light has different wavelengths and different frequencies. However, its speed in a vacuum is about 3*10^8 m/s. This is one of the fundamental constants of nature. It plays an important role in General Relativity. In physics, the term light sometimes refers to electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength, whether visible or not. In this sense, gamma rays, X-rays, microwaves and radio waves are also light.

Refraction, reflection, absorption, dispersion, polarization, scattering etc. are some features of light. In optics, we study these properties of light. The blue sky is because of scattering. Isn't it unique?

Depends on measurement and observation, light may either behave like a wave or like a particle. Therefore, light has the properties of a wave and a particle.

All the best,

Hello my friends,

16 May is the International Day of Light. On this day, in 1960 Theodore Maiman invented the first Laser. Ebne-Heysam; a Muslim scientist who studied light scientifically for the first time one thousand years ago, was born on this day. Light plays an important role in science and lives. We must appreciate it. We celebrated this day yesterday in Tabriz University.

Thank you Behnam. Under Milk Wood is a 1954 play (originally for radio) by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The words I quote are spoken by the Reverend Eli Jenkins. They may be reworded as:
We, who live our lives under Milk Wood, are not wholly bad or good.

Who knows, Mohsen? There is no limit to British politicians' idiocy. "Dancing Queen" was a 1976 pop song by the Swedish group ABBA. Perhaps Theresa May has pretensions not only in dancing but to be queen. Let us hope not.

Hi Joe,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing well.

"There is no limit to ...idiocy". What a nice sentence! I love it. It is full of wisdom.

Albert Einstein has also said; "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe." But, I think your sentence is better. Another version of it can be "there is no end to human idiocy".

Hi again Joe,

"Pretension" is a very useful and handy word. Thank you for writing here. Your posts are informative and helpful for English learners, although there are short. I wish you could write more. I really learn a lot from your writings. If you are putting posts somewhere, please let me know the link. Thanks!

o. m. g. this is so ~. how could the police officer did something that cruel to a lady? does she really deserve this kind of treatment? ;( i feel sad for her family members.

i agree that the police should have shot one is enough. but now 5 shots are just.. uneccesary.

Hello Sassybear,
Thank you for your comment
American police routinely violate the civil rights of people in the cities, sometimes US Justice Department releases a report about racially discriminatory and misconduct of US police ,but all of report is useless , The police keep shooting killing the deprived people and Justice Dept. releases a new report .
Behind the scene it seems that two departments cooperate each other ..

to be honest, i always disagree letting the americans to keep their guns at home. i remember last time, there was an american guy shooting kids at the high school. the government should have banned it. instead, they strengthen the security system. whats the point of it when the main cause is the possession of guns?

people in America can't keep living without Gun , it is their cultural heritage , They buy Gun and there are many shops which sell pistols and rifles , I read in an article that 10 millions firearms were entered the market only in 2016.
A lot of gun manufacturers in US which have a large income by selling firearms. Manufacturers are the root cause of gun violence , also many people in government are main stock holders of gun making companies. Also they follow the Gun trading in the world , so there should be always a war in a part of world , the more war , the more revenue for stock holders....

Body Covering!

Post by behnam » Thu May 23, 2019 2:08 pm

Hi there,

I don't know whether human beings should cover their bodies or not. If the answer is "no", why do people cover their bodies? If the answer is "yes", why and how much or which parts of body should be covered? Where do the limitations come from? In other words, what dos determine how much of one's body must be covered?

I am looking forwards to reading your comments.

All the best,

Hello
Human beings should cover their bodies , it is called modesty , generally covering body and modesty is for the purpose of maintaining a safe society in which men and women can interact in a professional and modest manner; a society in which women are not seen as sex objects by men, a society in which illicit sexual drives are minimized.

Dylan Thomas was a Welsh poet. Yes, he and his radio play Under Milk Wood are comparatively well known in the UK. {-:

Hi Mohsen,

Thanks for putting comment on it. You are such a wise man. However, you didn't answer to my questions! What is "modesty"? Where does it come from? I know what its meaning is. It is such a useful and meaningful word. What is the root of "modesty"? Will you say "God Has given that to human beings, and for that Adam and Eva covered their bodies(sexual organs) with fig leaves? I need more. If it is given to all human beings, why do some people put their bodies on display?
Mohsen, I want you to dig the subject more and more. Let's talk as philosophers! LOL :lol:
