Reading The Bible: Is An Act Of Worship, Devotion, Meditation, And Obedience.
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 *********************************** [Page 1 Of 4]
The Christian reads the Bible totally differently than the recreational reader. Many will approach the Bible like a stoic religious “Do and Don’t Manual”, or a magical book to uplift a dejected spirit in their deepest moments of desperation and grief. It’s simple curiosity with a twist of scholasticism, oftentimes that’s the case. God says, “Do this, but DO Not Do that”, so I will do the bare minimum to obtain divine favor.” They will often skim over the words of the book because of a lack of “true understanding,” even as a college student glides over difficult passages in their text books trying to find the right answers for the Final Exam! How do I learn about being a wise person? Hey, let me read the book of Proverbs, that will give me much wisdom. Proverbs 3:13. Hmmm, what about the Psalms, tonight I will read a few chapters before bed, I just love those sentimental sayings of antiquity spoken by King David, in fact Psalm 23 is one of my favorites, because it’s so encouraging and actually sounds pretty good. Ok, I need not read any more; I don’t understand this book. I’m done, I can actually say, ‘I’ve read the Bible,’” Now I must put it down, since I’ve “already” read it, God has spoken once, I’ve listened once, I understand exhaustively, I need nor more reminders. Now, I will close His book, because I’ve gleaned what I need. I will place it upon my book shelf or night stand to gather millimeters of dust which I will conveniently blow off when I become most pensive.
Kalbin yalnızlık çekerse onu,
Rahman'ı zikretmekten başka bir şeyle teselli etme...
ALLAH kendisine sığınanları barındırır.
işini Allah'a havale edene de ALLAH yeter.
Nefsini Allah'a satanı,Allah satın alır...
#Rabbi kendisine yetene ,ondan razı olup rabbini hoşnut edene ne mutlu !
bilemezsin ne ile cennete girebileceğini .
bir damla gözyaşı mı,
hoş bir söz mü ,
bir #sadaka mı yoksa güzel bir sabır mı ?
bir ayeti tilavet etmek mi yahut bir defa SübhanAllah demek mi ?
ALLAH için sevmek mi, temiz bir kalb mi ?
Bedenin acıkması ve susaması gibi #kalb de acıkır ve susar..
Onun yiyecek ve içeceği ise Allah'ı bilmek , sevmek,
0'na güvenip dayanmak,
O'na yönelip bağlanmak ve hizmet etmektir ..

It’s the annual MLK Jr day post of the sermon my grandpa wrote after marching with MLK Jr on Selma. In this picture, my grandfather is the furthest face on the left. His journey with Martin Luther King Jr that day and throughout the fight for Civil Rights was pivotal in his life. He received death threats for his involvement in the civil rights movement but it was vitally important to him. It was important to show his unyielding support. He wrote this sermon after the march.
“Rabbis of all branches of Judaism were wearing yarmelkes.
I tried to get one, but I could not. I learned later that they sent back for a thousand yarmelkes but all the Civil Rights workers wanted to wear them. Negro children and white marchers were all sporting yarmelkes.” Read more - link in bio

Dovid Reidel, Director of Research & Archive Division of the Amud Aish Memorial Museum, in Borough Park, N.Y., holds a tallis, part of the museum's collection, that belonged to Mendel Landau, in 1944, of Auschwitz, Poland.
The three-year-old Amud Aish Memorial Museum focuses on the experiences of Orthodox Jews during and after the Holocaust.
Its collection includes letters, diaries, photos and religious items, like this frayed tallis worn secretly by a prisoner at Auschwitz.
Currently housed in a temporary space downstairs from a home health care company, the Museum has long planned on moving to a more prominent location.
When it opened in the remote Mill Basin neighborhood, there were plans to build an $11 million permanent museum in the borough's Borough Park section. Sholom Friedmann, the museum's director and CEO, said there's now no fixed date for a move.
