Extraordinary Times

 I had one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.It made me realize to what lengths have I allowed my self to fall.But I knew it all the way back and felt myself so helpless in the situation .I knew I have to do more and knew that I can do more but i was simply unable to pull my self up and together to work for the goal I want to achieve.But certain moments have what even long stretches of time cannot provide us
It was the dark era of "Laila Tul Qadar" that led to Quran being sent down from the heavens to herald the dawn of a new era in the history man kind which would take humans to such spiritual heights as never witnessed before.
Religious persecution, the perpetrators don't understand blow such a spirit in the life of a community who suffers that even a century of struggle cannot create.The mind becomes clear , the path of achieving a goal is selected with ease and the community comes together to strive in such a way that is other wise impossible.
During exams students come to have such studying capacity and focus of mind that easily lets them cover in days what normally would  take months.
I am talking about a similar extraordinary moment , a moment that unleashes powers that earlier were present but remained hidden in an unusable manner.Our God calls Himself "RAAB" the one who nourishes from a simple and unsignifcant small stages to higher complex and useful states.
I believe that moments of hardships in this world are to take us out of our lower states to higher ones.Its for us to choose that we act proactively and let that moment be our prize or don't give any heed and bring about destruction on ourselves.
For me Hell would be a similar place,the people who didn't utilize the opportunities of self development in this world would be forced through hardships to come out of those pit holes and build themselves for those favors that their creator wants them to have,a place called AL-Jannah where their efforts will flow like rivulets  unhindered and give them a  potential of limitless growth similar to a lush green garden with springs flowing underneath and a place whose prizes would never fade.
A day before I felt so powerless over my condition  that I wanted to quit and now I vow to fight and not let myself be steered away mindlessly in the abysses of self pity.My perspective on life has refreshened and I feel much more clear and controlled and determined.I don't know weather I would achieve what I want to but now I will try with a new vigour.I know one single moment is never enough ,I need a fuel for a life time ,this is one of the main differences between reality and fiction.There one scene changes into another without the uncertainty that the life disposes us to and here we have to live through each single moment.

Perspectives on history-

Will Durant-Goood is what survives
''Does history support a belief in God? If by God we mean not the creative vitality of nature but a supreme being intelligent and benevolent,the answer must be a reluctant negative.Like other departments of biology, history remains at bottom a natural selection of the fittest individuals and groups in a struggle wherein goodness receives no favors, misfortunes abound, and the final test is the ability to survive.Add to the crimes, wars, and cruelties of man the earthquakes,
storms, tornadoes, pestilences, tidal waves, and other "acts of God" that periodically desolate human and animal life, and the total evidence suggests either a blind or an impartial fatality, with incidental
and apparently haphazard scenes to which we subjectively ascribe order, splendor, beauty, or sublimity. If history supports any theology this would be a dualism like the Zoroastrian or Manichaean: a good spirit and an evil spirit battling for control of the universe  and men's souls.These faiths and Christianity (which is essentially Manichaean) assured their followers that the good spirit would win in the end; but of this consummation history offers no guarantee. Nature and history do not agree with our conceptions of good and bad; they define good as that which survives, and bad as that which goes under; and the universe has no prejudice in favor of Christ as against GenghisKhan.''(Durant.W; The lessons of history)

Quran-Good is what benefits makind, so it survives:
"He sends down water from the sky, so that valleys flow according to their measure, and the flood bears on its surface swelling foam. And from that which they heat in the fire, seeking to make ornaments or utensils, comes out a foam similar to it. Thus does Allah illustrate truth and falsehood. Now, as to the foam, it goes away as rubbish, but as to that which benefits people, it stays on the earth. Thus does Allah set forth parables."(13:18 Quran)

Do not be hasty in rejecting as false

Nay, but they have rejected that the knowledge of which they did not encompass nor has the true significance thereof yet come to them. In like manner did those before them reject the truth. But see what was the end of those who did wrong!(chapter:10/39)

O ye learned people ...... Do not be hasty in rejecting as false. There are many profound secrets which man cannot comprehend in a hurry, all at once. You should not be ready to reject a thing the moment you hear it, for this is not the way of the righteous(..)

"No sexual ethic can be either justified or condemned on solid grounds until it has been examined from all the points of view above enumerated. Reformers and reactionaries alike are in the habit of considering one or at most two of the aspects of the problem. It is especially rare to find any combination of the private and the political points of view, and yet it is quite impossible to say that either of these is more important than the other, and we can have no assurance a priori that a system which is good from a private point of view would also be good from a political point of view, or vice versa."(russel:marraige and morals)
