Resurrection and the Hereafter - The Gate of God’s bestowal of life and death
NINTH TRUTH The Gate of God’s bestowal of life and death, the Manifestation of the Names of Eternally Living and Self-Subsistent, and Giver of Life and Giver of Death. Is it at all possible that the One Who gives life to this vast dead and dry earth; Who in so doing demonstrates His power by deploying more than three hundred thousand different forms of creation, each of them as remarkable as man; Who further demonstrates in this deployment His all-embracing knowledge by the infinite distinctions and differentiations He makes in the complex intermingling of all of those forms; Who directs the gaze of all His slaves to everlasting bliss by promising them resurrection in all of His heavenly decrees; Who demonstrates the splendour of His dominicality by causing all of His creation to collaborate with one another, to revolve within the circle of His command and His will, to aid one another and be submitted to Him; Who shows the importance He has given to man by creating him as the most comprehensive, the most precious and delicate, the most valued and valuable fruit on the tree of creation by addressing him without intermediary and subjugating all things to him; — is it at all possible that so Compassionate and Powerful a One, so Wise and All-Knowing a One, should not bring about resurrection; should not gather His creatures together or be unable to do so; should not restore man to life, or be unable to do so; should not be able to inaugurate His Supreme Court; should not be able to create Heaven and Hell? Nay, indeed, by no means is any of this possible. Indeed, the Almighty Disposer of this world’s affairs creates in every century, every year and every day, on the narrow and transient face of the globe, numerous signs, examples and indications of the Supreme Gathering and the Plain of Resurrection. Thus in the gathering that takes place every spring we see that in the course of five or six days more than three hundred thousand different kinds of animal and plant are first gathered together and then dispersed. The roots of all the trees and plants, as well as some animals, are revived and restored exactly as they were. The other animals are recreated in a form so similar as to be almost identical. The seeds which appear, in their outward form, to be so close to each other, nonetheless, in the course of six days or six weeks, become distinct and differentiated from each other, and then with extreme speed, ease and facility, are brought to life in the utmost order and equilibrium. Is it at all possible that for the One Who does all of this anything should be difficult; that He should be unable to create the heavens and the earth in six days; that He should be unable to resurrect men with a single blast? No, by no means is it possible! 93 Let us suppose there were to be some gifted writer who could write out in a single hour the confused and obliterated letters of three hundred thousand books on a single sheet without any error, omission or defect, complete and in the best form. If someone were then to say to you that that writer could write out again from memory a book written by him that had fallen into the water and become obliterated, would you then say that he is unable, and would you not believe in his ability? Or think of some talented king who, in order to demonstrate his power or for the sake of providing a warning example, removes whole mountains with a single command, turns his realm upside down, and transforms the sea into dry land. Then you see that a great rock rolls down into a valley, so that the path is blocked for guests travelling to attend the king’s reception and they are unable to pass. If someone should say to you: “that exalted one will remove or dissolve the stone, however great it may be, with a single command; he will not leave his guests stranded,” would you then say that he will not remove the stone, or be unable to do so? Or if someone one day should gather together a great army, and you are then informed that he will summon its battalions together with a blast of the trumpet after they had dispersed to rest, and the battalions will form up in disciplined shape, would you respond by saying, “I don’t believe it?” Were you to say any of these things your behaviour would truly be madness. If you have understood these three parables, now look further and see how the Pre- Eternal Designer turns over in front of our eyes the white page of winter and opens the green pages of spring and summer. Then He inscribes on the page of the earth’s surface, with the pen of power and destiny, in the most beautiful form, more than three hundred thousand species of creation. Not one encroaches upon another. He writes them all together, but none blocks the path of another. In their formation and shape, each is kept separate from the other without any confusion. There is no error in the writing. That Wise and Preserving One, Who preserves and inserts the spirit of a great tree in the smallest seed, no bigger than a dot — is it permissible even to ask how He preserves the spirits of those who die? That Powerful One Who causes the globe to revolve like a pebble in a sling — is it permissible even to ask how He will remove this globe from the path of His guests who are travelling to meet Him in the Hereafter? Again, the One of Glorious Essence Who from non-being recruits anew and inscribes into His battalions, with the command of “Be, and behold it is,” and with utmost discipline, the troops of all living things, the very particles of all of their bodies, and thus creates highly disciplined armies — is it permissible even to ask how He can make bodies submit to His discipline like a battalion, how He can gather together their mutually acquainted fundamental particles, and their component members? You can, moreover, behold with your own eyes, the numerous designs made by God as signs, similes and indications of resurrection, designs placed by Him in every age and epoch of the world, in the alternation of day and night, even in the appearance and disappearance of clouds in the sky. If you imagine yourself to have been living a thousand years ago, and then compare with each other the two wings of time that are the past and the future, then you will behold similes of the gathering and indications of resurrection as numerous as the centuries and days. If, then, after witnessing so many similes and indications, you regard corporeal resurrection as improbable and rationally unacceptable, know your behaviour to be pure lunacy. See what the Supreme Decree says concerning the truth we are discussing: Look upon the signs of God’s mercy, and see how He restores life to the earth after its death. Verily He it is Who shall bring to life the dead, and He is powerful over all things.28 In short: There is nothing that makes impossible the gathering of resurrection, and much that necessitates it. The glorious and eternal dominicality, the almighty and all embracing sovereignty of the One Who gives life and death to this vast and wondrous earth as if it were a mere animal; Who has made of this earth a pleasing cradle, a fine ship, for man and the animals; Who has made of the sun a lamp furnishing light and heat to the hostelry of the world; Who has made of the planets vehicles for the conveyance of His angels — the dominicality and sovereignty of such a One cannot rest upon and be restricted to the transitory, impermanent, unstable, insignificant, changeable, unlasting, deficient and imperfect affairs of this world. He must, therefore, have another realm, one worthy of Him, permanent, stable, immutable and glorious. Indeed, He does have another kingdom, and it is for the sake of this that He causes us to labour, and to this that He summons us. All those of illumined spirit who have penetrated from outer appearances to truth, and have been ennobled with proximity to the Divine Presence, all the spiritual poles endowed with luminous hearts, all the possessors of lucent intelligence, all bear witness that He will transfer us to that other kingdom. They inform us unanimously that He has prepared for us there reward and requital, and relate that He is repeatedly giving us firm promises and stern warnings. As for the breaking of a promise, it is baseless and utter humiliation. It cannot in any way be reconciled with the glory of His sanctity. Similarly, failure to fulfil a threat arises either from forgiveness or powerlessness. Now unbelief is extreme crime, and cannot be forgiven.The Absolutely Omnipotent One is exempt of and exalted above all powerlessness. Those who bring us their testimony and report, despite all the differences in their methods, temperaments and paths, are totally unanimous and agreed on this basic matter. By their number, they have the authority of unanimity. By their quality, they have the authority of learned consensus. By their rank, each one is a guiding star of mankind, the cherished eye of a people, the object of a nation’s veneration. By their importance, each one is an expert and an authority in the matter. In any art or science, two experts are preferred to thousands of non-experts, and two positive affirmers are preferred to thousands of negators in the transmission of a report. For example, the testimony of two men affirming the sighting of the crescent moon at the beginning of Ramadan totally nullifies the negation of thousands of deniers. In short: In the whole world there is no truer report, no firmer claim, no more apparent truth than this. The world is without doubt a field, and the resurrection a threshing-floor, a harvest. Paradise and Hell are each storehouses for the grain.

2022.01.18 06:36 RedCarpetEvent Movie sequels are not intrinsically bad.
A feature film or feature-length film is a narrative film (motion picture or "movie") with a running time long enough to be considered the principal or sole presentation in a commercial entertainment program (wikipedia).
The runtime matters. Some movies need additional time for storytelling or for character set up. From hereon, a case can be made for sequels, when necessary (not whenever possible). The Godfather Part II is great example but sequels can have an even more powerful impact when there is sufficient gap between the two movies. I love the idea of follow-up to a movie that has aged well (Aliens). Even though we are used to continuation of existing stories for purely commercial reasons, it can be a great venue for more in-depth exploration of subject matter and may at times supercede the original (Terminator 2, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King).
However, I also think that a movie should have merit on its own; It should not be used as a set up for a sequel -but- at the same time the creator(s) should have some awareness (or plan) for sequels while making the original. Dune Part 1 fails on the first metric and Avatar on the second.
How do you feel about this? Are there any movie sequels you are looking forward to?

2022.01.18 06:36 Pound_Turbulent [Jobs] should i settle for a job that pays below my expectation?
waiting to start school but before that i have a huge chunk of time that i have no idea how to make use of. Not really in dire need of money as i have sufficient to support my lifestyle but i thought extra income from part -time jobs could further support this new hobby i picked up and also a good time filler? anyway, this part-time job for a position in a cafe that i applied for has decided to accept my application but only after the interview that it was revealed to me that it is only $7/hr. tbh im not sure if $7/hr should be considered low as my friends who work part-time receive $8-10/hr. I have applied for other part-time jobs as well but this job is the only one that has contacted me and accepted my application. so ya, i need opinions from strangers lol. is $7/hr an acceptable wage? should i reject this job or settle for it?

Hi! I'm writing a piece for a music magazine about the impact that 2012/TumblFrank Ocean have had on the last decade of music, fashion and culture. I would love to speak to anyone who's been a fan of Frank since 2012, particularly if you discovered him through/following him on Tumblr or were part of his fandom on Tumblr. Let me know if anyone would be happy to help and please comment or DM me so I can send you some questions. Thanks so much! Sophie

I'm using Firefox v96 and these are my History settings: I've set firefox to clear my browsing history when it closes, and also delete offline website data.
Is it possible to tell Firefox to delete offline data for every site, except for the sites in a whitelist? There's no option to do that in the settings, but maybe there's some
about:config option that I don't know about

2022.01.18 06:36 youngarchivist Fantasy IPs that utilize permanent-effect potions like the Witcher
Anyone know of any others? I mean even similar or adjacent titles; like I know that Warhammer Fantasy has Grail Knights that drink from a Holy Grail and are imbued with superhuman ability but I can't think of any others besides that and the Witcher that feature a potion-type substance causing permanent positive effects.

2022.01.18 06:36 AcanthocephalaHuge27 Sertraline and insomnia, advice!
Currently in week 3 of my sertraline 50mg journey. The insomnia is making my life extremely hard right now and I really feel like giving up on it. The dreams I have are very much motivated by what I'm depressed or anxious about so it's a 24 cycle of negative thoughts. Can anyone give me a glimmer of hope that I will at least be able to sleep soon! Or even just anyone else in the same boat.
