    Islamic Scholars agree that destined hardships and difficulties (and also good fortune) “descend” (approaches its destined time) and are met by raising invocations (prayers); they struggle untill the Day of resurrection. If your prayers are weaker than this destined misfortune, then it will find its way to you but its impact may be reduced to various degrees; or good fortune may multiply as it too interacts with your prayers. You will better understand this after reading the section on Destiny,…

    God’s invocation throughout Muslim and Christian sources demonstrates that he has no opinion on their wars. For instance, when the Hispano-Arabic poetry explicates, “In this way God’s favor toward Islam was accomplished while the joy of that year embraced us all, Although the greatest joy that occurred in its course was the death in it of Ibn Hafsun, the pig! Thus one conquest was added to a second and one victory to another granted by the aid of God” and suggests that the Caliph had the favor…

    of thighbones burning, haunches of rams and bulls, a hundred fold. He lingered delighted at the banquet side. (32-38) This version, while more descriptive in some aspects, is somewhat vague. It does not mention the Ethiopians by name, and instead calls them “the sunburnt races.” It is also not explicitly stated that a sacrifice is taking place. Despite the fact that it is longer, Lombardo’s translation makes it easier to understand what is happening in this case. A significant point to be…
