    I found this one on Facebook and thought it would be a great one to share here. Its interesting to see some of the responces. Topics such as history, cooking <a recipe actually..(looks over at sister harb)>, religious "wisdom of the day" type sentances, fiction...lets see what we find. I'll start.

    From FB:
    It's National Book Week (not really but at some point it was).


    The rules:


    1)Grab the closest book to you.


    2)Go to page 56.


    3)Copy the 5th sentence as your status.


    (the 5th SENTENCE, not the 5th line...I made that mistake once)

    4)Don't mention the book.

    HIyya FDT!

    interesting! (Hope you have words ready for the other thread! ^_^)

    the 5th line of the 56 page of the closest book to me says:

    O Allaah! For you I have prostrated; in You I have believed;to You I have submitted;[You are my Lord;]my face has prostrated for the One Who created it and shaped it, [shaped it excellently,]then brought forth it's hearing and vision;[so] blessed be Allaah,the Best to Create!

    So when the Yathrib Arabs heard that a man in Mecca had now in fact declared himself to be a Prophet, they opened their ears; and they were still more interested when they were told something about his message, for they were already familiar with many of the principles of orthodox religion.


    Subhanallah :)

    I actually have two books on the desk next to me.

    The fifth sentence on page 56 in the top book is "And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one."

    The fifth sentence on page 56 in the bottom book is "No classy suit for her." I notice this really makes no sense without reading the rest of the paragraph.

    Asalaamu Alaikum,
    But that`s what makes this such a fun game. While some posts will be relatively easy to decipher the topic of someone`s reading, others make you wonder about the context. I suppose the lesson we can learn is how important it is to read something fully so as to not jump to a conclusion as to what something means without a context for which to place it in. What an important lesson for us all, don`t you think?

    :)

    The is an interesting sentence. I find myself wanting to know the rest of the story.

    Yes, Jen, that is quite an important lesson. Goes along the lines of "Don't judge a book by it's cover." This is though "Don't judge a book by the fifth sentence of it's 59th page." Lol! On a religious note, if people fully read religious books and learned to understand what is really being said, maybe there would be less hate and violence in the world.

    Interesting question, Jen, but who are your people if I may ask? If not, then disregard my question.

    :salam2: I'm so sorry sister, I assumed that by now everyone knew my history. I am Native American by community acceptance. To liken it to something you would understand, its like the difference between a revert and a born Muslim. That's the easiest way I can explain it. Just like some Arabic words have different meanings depending on the situation and context, so too with the word "aho (pronounced ah-ho)". Sometimes its used at the end of a prayer, like Ameen. sometimes its used to express agreement, sometimes used to express <loudly> support for a cause that is being spoken about in a group or council and sometimes, its used to express glee. It all depends on what's going on.. :)

    I don't mind talking about my religion at all and my traditions but I do so here only when asked because it would be...well...rude. Its not something that's done in my tradition. What is the teaching in Islam, "there is no compulsion in religion". :) Same with mine. In fact, not everyone can claim being a "Native American". We have "apples" <people who are red on the outside but white on the inside> and we have native at heart <people who are not red on the outside but there heart and actions say otherwise. :)....though, the term "apple" is a bit derogatory.

    I understand now, Jen. I didn't recognize the word "aho" so I was curious where it was from. Mind if I pm you about this instead of keeping it in a thread about books? Seems kind rude to continue to talk off topic.

    Asalaamu Alaikum on this first day of Ramadan! I wish you all a peace-filled month!

    A new day and a new book..I found this to be a bit ironic..! :

    "But we must go back even further and concider the original context of the term."

    @ Sister M..(sorry, I`m on my cell phone and its abiliy to scroll down to get your whole name is limited)....sure! I welcome all PMs. My PM box probably thinks I`m death for all the use it gets...lol. Please though, if you would, don`t ask me why I`ve not reverted. I get that question so often I feel like I need to create a form letter for the answer...lol!
