ثَلاثٌ لا يَهْنَأُ لِصاحِبِهِنَّ عَيْشٌ : الحِقْدُ ، وَ الْحَسَدُ ، وَ سُوءُ الْخُلْق
Three traits you cannot live in happiness if you have them: hatred, envy and ill manners.

I don’t believe in the logic of kindness as a give and take thing, I think kindness should be natural and never be seen or treated as something that we get something in return for.
It should be limitless, without expectations or motives. It should be sincere only for His sake.
Results have come in and it appears that my liver is testing positive for cancer cells that has spread from the colon into the liver.
We/I will be getting a second opinion from UCSF inshallah next week.
Again, many heart felt thanks from the bottom of my heart for the many prayers/Duas and well wishes I’ve received from friends, family and loved ones.
God bless you all
Sure go for it! :)
Oh dear, don’t thank us. It was your dua that was simply answered by Allah.
May Allah bless you immensely and always protect you from harm and evil, and surround you with those who bring nothing but positivity and growth into your life, ameen <3

The Story of Robert Davila - Nouman Ali Khan
From Muzaffar Iqbal’s Science and Islam:
- the model for studying the interaction of science and Christianity in the west is the ‘two-entity model’: Science and religion as two separate entities
- This model is from a specific cultural and history background: the Western world
- And because Western science tradition has had conflicts with Christianity, this model is also a ‘conflict model’
- But there are claims that this model is universal; that all relationships between all scientific traditions and all religions can be understood using this model
- The Question: “Is the Two-Entity Model - arising out of a particular cultural, historical, and scientific background - truly applicable to all religions and all scientific traditions?”
- Is nature and its relationship with God and humans understood the same way in all religions?
- "Is the foundational source texts of all religions similar to the Bible in the epistemological, metaphysical, and semantic structures they imply?"
- "Is science in all civilizations an enterprise that has remained the same over centuries as to its foundations?"
- Answer: Not really
- The Two-Entity Model is not applicable to Islam
- Nature, in Islam, is not a separate, self-subsisting entity that can be studied in isolation from its all-embracing view of God, humanity and the universe
- "In Islamic classification of knowledge, science as one branch of knowledge is integrally connected to all other branches of knowledge"
- All of which is connected to the Oneness of God, Tawhid
- The Islamic tradition does not regard any discipline of knowledge independent of other disciplines
- There is a fundamental difference between the nature of science that existed in Islamic civilization between the 8th and 16th century and modern science
- These two modes of science each has its own distinct mode of interaction with Islam
- One cannot use the same methodology for narrating the stories of interaction of Islam with both premodern and modern science
- The arrival of modern Western science came with colonization in the Muslim world, came with the economic, political, and military agendas of the colonizing powers
- "This destroyed institutions that had produced the 800-year-old Islamic educational tradition, and was replaced by new scientific agendas that suited the interests of the colonizing powers"
- "This changed the dynamics of the practice of science in the Muslim world, and Islam now had to interact with a science based on a philosophy of nature foreign to its own conception"
- An intellectual colonization of the Muslim mind
