    hi all

    God says:(O men! Here is a parable set forth! listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, ye call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all met together for the purpose! and if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition! )

    Quran 22:73       YUSUFALI translation

    (note:Allah is a name of the creator


    my concern is as follows:
    when you english speakers read this, what do understand the speaker wanted to say?

      means your kidding yourself to believe anyone other than God has the power to create. 

      Good to have you back E, how was Ramanda (sorry if I spelled it wrong)  smile

      Oh and to take it a little further, even if people got together and recreated a fly (for story sake) who by what means do you think it was possible.  I mean through what did you get the knowledge to make it happen.

      And you may be able to re produce it you can never get the fly to eat.  smile

        hi Sandra

        yeh, Ramdan is going well but there is still 5 days to go. and we will have a special celebration then called ''EID''

        I agree with what you are saying.

        I was thinking yesterday while walking in the street about the beauty of feelings God has given us.
        For example: how do we feel that something is beautiful and another is ugly.
        how come we agreed that many things in life are nice?
        how great of God to give us these feelings.

        just thoughts I don't know if you got.

        take care

      God-Allah is the ultimate creator-nothing comes close to him.
