L'Amitié Est l'Amour Sans Ailes...

Our final assignment in my teaching for a pluralistic society class is to find something we, for lack of a better word, 'suck' at and describe why and how we suck. I believe the object is to identify and explore the depths of our weaknesses and how they have come to be such, as opposed to our strengths. Here's a sparknotes version of my essay:

PerplxinTexan on why I suck at love: I just wrote,"Warm up very slowly in courting and relationships. The hottest love can have the coldest end. There are lots of important -ships in life. Big ships, small ships, ships happen. But, the most important ship of all is friendship. You can't love without being friends. Many a marriage has ended because people stopped being friends, people we love, laugh, and trust with.

Maybe it's lust, hate, like, or jealousy. But, it will never be love. It will never be love without being friends first. My problem is I've got one too many friends, or at least people who consider me a friend. The boundaries in my life are skewed, ill-defined and fading. We know a classroom is a classroom because we call it that. But, just because he calls me a friend doesn't mean I am. I should love slow because, love is not tricky. Friendship is tricky."

A Muslim woman speaks of love, and looks forward to sharing her man with 2 others? You have done so well for yourself. Will your man be on jihad, letting you be the wage earner?
Half-truths allow confusion: Seekers of Truth fill in details and lead themselves astray. The Prophet (pbuh) was sincere but he too was taken in. He knew Allah (swt) had an adversary but did not suspect that he was being used. Mohamed (pbuh) made belief easy, and many chose it (and many do so still.).
Contiguous dimensional worlds tell us where God is and why we can't see Him. God's great love sent Jesus, who redeemed the world. Islam asks, "Who needs redeeming?" , but it is obvious something is wrong with mankind. Evil Satan rebelled against he whom God appointed as 'King of Heaven and Earth', and Satan uses Islam to frustrate Allah's great plan. Is there really 'peace' in Islam?
The real shape of the worlds is described in 'Techie Worlds, Visible & Invisible' (available from Amazon.com). It explains these things in an understandable, mechanistic and logical way. It shows how Allah's vast love for mankind and for His worlds includes you and me and all His children, God's love can bring happiness to us all. Read 'Techie Worlds' for a true understanding of what Allah has done for us.

Just wondering if you're still alive. Hi.

wow. that is so true. it's scary nowadays, what friendship is considered.... i think that the internet has turned friendship into a stamp rather than a meaningful relationship that could potentially (with that special someone) turn into more.

@ Ano above:

I'm not exactly clear on what your point is? Is the point your making a concern that a Muslim female is a sucker for love, that you feel I'm to, for lack of a better word, intelligent to be Muslim, or just a general frustration?

I can assure you that I will not be "sharing" my future spouse by being involved in a romantic relationship with more than him at once. My point was that I suck at love because, I currently suck at being a friend. I firmly believe you can not be lovers, without first being friends. This is the reason I titled this entry "friendship is love without wings" because friendship, not love, is tricky.
