I am so amazed that Shariati is able to tell us in his writing about the whole story from the birth till the death of Fatima. I used to found the biography of the Prophets and His Companions but the biography of Prophet’s children is rarely found. Before I read the book, the only thing that I know about Fatima is that she is the beloved daughter of the Prophet and is detested by Aiesha; the wife of the Prophet after Khadijah’s death and the daughter of Abu Bakar, the first of the Orthodoxs Caliphs. Surprisingly, after I’ve read the book, I just realized the real life story about Fatima. Fatima is the fourth and the youngest daughter of the prophet in Islam.
Mackenzie Musser Miss Given English 11 Honors February 5, 2018 Response #3 Through The Poisonwood Bible, storytelling is presented in many different ways. In each chapter we were exposed to a different type of story from the next. Together they all make sense, but each and every single one of them are different in their own ways. The Poisonwood Bible really emphasizes the importance of storytelling, what is the purpose of memories if we aren’t going to share them? When going to Kongo the Price family is introduced to a whole other world, one of which storytelling is vital.
Scott Fitzgerald also used them to impact his readers. The most common and the most heavily used theme you encounter throughout “Babylon Revisited” is change and transformation. This theme is the most important one encountered throughout this story. For example, in the criticism passage, Paul Bodine states, “ On the surface, the story is about a father’s attempt to regain custody of his daughter after a series of personal disasters” (Bodine 17). This statement shows both themes of change and transformation in one sentence.This statement given by Bodine explains the entire plot of the story.It also supports the main theme by giving a very brief summary of the story, in which this theme is heavily present.
Responding to the call of the Creator with reference to St.Luke in “The Dear and glorious Physician” by Taylor Caldwell STELLA.A ASSISTANT PROFESSOR DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH BACAS Taylor Caldwell addressed religious themes in her works. Caldwell has chosen in this novel, the grand, the splendid means to describe the story of St.Luke. Her own travels through the Holy land and tears of meticulous research made Dear and Glorious Physician, a fully developed portrait of a complex and brilliant man. The objective of the paper is to portray how a man who loves God in his childhood. As an adolescent due to bitterness and sorrow hates God.
Both reference religious beliefs and God numerous times throughout their works, but they do so in different ways. These differences serve as evidence of an advancement of self-expression and individuality concerning religion over the course of time. This is especially evident in Bradstreet’s poems “Before the Birth of One of Her Children” and “Verses Upon the Burning of Our House” as well as Dickinson’s poems “Heaven is so far of the Mind” and “Remorse – is Memory – awake.” “Before the Birth of One of Her Children” by Anne Bradstreet is a quiet, reflective poem in
Each person teaches her a new life lesson that she can take with her always. Author, Nathaniel Hawthorne, uses his writing to show how each character shapes Hester in a particular way. In "The Scarlet Letter," Hester 's relationships with her daughter Pearl, her agape Arthur Dimmesdale, and her vengeful husband Roger Chillingworth help readers to see the maturity in Hester with each one. The mother-daughter relationship has a unique quality like no other. A mother and daughter love and support each other through good times and bad times.
Cameron wants to build a society in which everyone “feels free to say yes, I am a Muslim, I am a Hindu, I am a Christian but I am also a Londoner or a Berliner too” (ll.78-79). Cameron ends his speech by summarizing what he said before and even enhancing it by using the “Power of three” in line 87: “We need stamina, patience and endurance.”. He is sure of the fact that it will not be easy but as long as they stick together they have a change of stopping the terrorism. To conclude one can say that Cameron’s main goals are convincing the audience that something has to change and that they can only achieve this change it if they work together. In my opinion, he does a good job in doing so since he knows how to correctly speak to people about a critical and recent topic like this.
Worship is an important part of the religion of Islam. Worship (Ibaadah) is a term that includes everything that Allah would be pleased with. It represents the utmost love for Allah through submission. Prayers,zakaat,fasting,hajj,being kind towards others, maintaining relations with kin, doing good and staying away from doing evil, being beneficent to neighbours,to the poor people or orphans,supplication,reciting the holy Quran and such others are types of worship. An act of worship must obey these two circumstances: Firstly, it must conform to the orders of Allah’s Law as found in the Quran and Sunnah.
In fact, countless phrases of each book have become part of the everyday speech of people. Great Persian poets including Sa’di, Rumi and Hafiz who knew the Quran by heart appealed to its subtle articulations to furnish and ornament their poetry. Equally in the west, the Bible has been a true muse for most of the literati, most notably, Dante, Shakespeare, Milton and Pope, as the last of the Classics. Sir Walter Scott has
After he died, Mary constantly read books about grief from authors like C.S Lewis, Joan Didion, and H. Norman Wright. Reading those books finally made her realize she wasn’t alone. According to the Heroic Imagination Project, one of the main characteristics of a hero is wanting to help people in need (Cherry, “The Psychology of Heroism”). That’s exactly why Mary wrote the book; she wanted to show broken people they weren’t alone.
Prayers and Bible stories had always appealed to her, going with the happy, the lyrical, the ‘blessing’ side of her life. Now, in the funeral prayers, in the 103rd Psalm, and above all in Kaddish, she found the right and only words for her comfort and lamentation. During the intervening months (between my first seeing her, in April, and her grandmother’s death that November) Rebecca - like all our ‘clients’ (an odious word then becoming fashionable, supposedly less degrading than ‘patients’), was pressed into a variety of workshops and classes, as part of our Developmental and Cognitive Drive (these too were ‘in’ terms at the time). It didn’t work with Rebecca, it didn’t work with most of them. It was not, I came to think, the right thing to do, because what we did was to drive them full-tilt upon their limitations, as had already been done futilely, and often to the point of cruelty, throughout their lives We paid far too much attention to the defects of our
The stereotype of PTSD is another big topic society talks about. Not everyone in the service comes back broken to their wives in need of mental help, but there are families that deal with it. One way media convinces the audience is using rhetorical analysis. For instance, Pathos is how the image can send an emotional appeal to the audience. In this case, the poem in the back of the woman in this magazine cover, was written by the founder of the Battling Bare campaign, wanting to share her emotions towards her PTSD husband and make a statement to the world how she’s the one helping him.
Nao states: “I will write down everything I know about Jiko’s life in Marcel’s book, and when I’m done, I’ll just leave it somewhere, and you will find it!”. In other words, writing deeply affected her life by it being of her great grandmother. Someone who she admired and hoped someone would find out about. This seems as something important to her, writing about her great-grandmother who was the only person that Nao really cared about and was important and interesting enough to write about. She decided to start writing about it because she knew she was going to kill herself and she owed it to Jiko to share her great life story, a memoir of someone she greatly saw as someone special to some special stranger.
Realistically, traveling to a different country would not be feasible. However, it would be something I am interested in doing. Like I had previously mentioned, I would like to attend a Mosque. This would also assist me in becoming culturally competent with the Muslim population. I would also do my own studying and looking at the values and beliefs of Muslims.
