PUBLISHED: 08:00 01 September 2018 Mohammed Omer, Gardens of Peace Why is it that we have become such an intolerant society? Surely, each religion teaches us to be tolerant and respectful of each other. This will ensure that there is cohesion as well security within communities rather than intolerance breeding hate and disrespect for people, their religion and culture. Tolerance is a basic principle of Islam. It is a religious and moral duty. It does not mean compromise. It does not mean lack of principles or lack of seriousness about one’s principles. It means accepting the fact that human beings, naturally distinct in their appearance, situation, speech, behaviour, and values, have the right to live in peace anto be as they are. It also means that one’s views are not to be imposed on others. We have to tolerate others according to their point of view, we can’t just impose our point of view on others.The Quran speaks about the basic dignity of all human beings. … [Read more...] about Spiritual Life: We must teach equality and tolerance
Spiritual life meaning
IN the heart of the Amazon there are still hundreds of mysterious uncontacted tribes living their lives completely oblivious to the modern world. In one recent example of their sheer isolation, the last surviving member of one tribe was filmed after more than two decades of living completely alone in the jungle. He is the only survivor of an uncontacted tribe whose six other members were killed by land grabbers and farmers, Sun Online reported. The uncontacted tribes live in extreme isolation in the forest and are rarely filmed. Over the years their fear of the encroaching world has led to them to develop a fear of contact with outsiders.

He cherished his privacy. He always kept us from seeing what he didn’t want us to see, what he didn’t want us to know, what he didn’t want us to hear. We didn’t know the name of his deceased newborn son. Or about his movie script for then-teen heartthrobs New Kids on the Block, or even the excruciating hip pain that forced him to surgery. We never knew how much he was hurting or how dependent he’d become on painkillers. We certainly didn’t have a clue — and maybe he didn’t either — that trying to ease the pain would bring his demise. Prince’s abiding desire to shield himself from the outside world in life may also have played a part in his death, keeping those who knew and cared for him the most from getting him the help he needed. But, as with so much else with Prince Rogers Nelson, we’ll never know.We lack full closure about the 57-year-old Minneapolis music icon’s death on April 21, 2016, from an accidental … [Read more...] about Unfinished requiem: Enigmatic in life, Prince leaves mystery in death
Comfort Care Is Not Giving Up — Not By A Long Shot While we don’t know the specifics of Barbara Bush’s situation, we know that she is forgoing future medical treatments, meaning that she’s no longer seeking to cure or reverse her condition but to instead focus her time and energy on “comfort, quality and dignity, and make sure her family is taken care of,” as Tucker frames it. Yes, this means she may refuse a medical intervention down the road, but no, it doesn’t mean she’s surrendering. Related “There’s clearly a misconception among people when they hear that someone is electing comfort care and ceasing medical treatments that they’re giving up,” says Tucker. “But actually they’re just changing the goal and the focus of their care, and making a conscious decision to say, ‘This is how I will live this part of my life.’ They may live very vigorously in the joy and comfort that they … [Read more...] about Barbara Bush is choosing ‘comfort care.’ What does it mean?
