peace Emily B,
god informs us:
I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.
all actions done in obedience to god's will are considered acts of worship in islam. thus remembering god, prayers, fasting, charity, pilgrimage, gaining beneficial knowledge, staying away from lying, being patient in the face of adversity, being forgiving to transgressors, standing up for justice, raising a family, being kind to parents, next of kin, neighbors, the poor, orphan and needy, earning a lawful living, etc. these are all acts of 'worship' IF they are committed with the express intent to gain the pleasure of god.
the ritual prayer in islam is called the 'salat'. muslims are commanded to pray five times a day, every day. if you are unfamiliar with the importance of salat to muslims you might benefit from watching this short presentation:
the first prayer is before sunrise while the last one is at night. muslim men are obligated to join congregational prayers on friday while it is optional for muslim women. the friday congregation prayer has been commanded by god in the following words:
O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): That is best for you if ye but knew!
however, friday is not a day of 'resting' in islam as saturday and sunday are considered in the judeo-christian faith. in fact, in the very next verse god says:
And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah: and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that ye may prosper.
hope this helps.
Rachel's Challenge: Yay or nay?
I think Rachel's Challenge is a great thing, but I also think you're right. People should be nice 110% of the time and they should always be kind and caring. Being rude for no reason isn't right- humankind should always be compassionate, not just because someone tells a person they should be. I think that Rachel's challenge is good, but your point is valid too. Maybe sometimes we just need a little reminder to be kinder.
How can I make friends?
I'm pedantic about trying to get my thoughts out of my head and into my audience's so perfectly that no meaning is lost in the process. It's difficult when addressing normal people because statistically 7 out of 8 make no sense to them, due to our different brain wiring.
When my audience is autie / aspie, that magnifies the risk to the extent of 63 out of 64 of my signals being useless, worthless and meaningless.
Being aware of such a risk of my signals being useless, worthless and meaningless has forced me to develop ways and means of minimising confusion, the easiest of which being to isolate myself mentally from neurotypicals by a factor of eight times compared with non-human subjects (e.g., dog's) and objects (e.g., stones) and by a further factor of eight times in the case of auties / aspies.
It's a sad fact of life that auties / aspies have a harder time coping with other auties / aspies by a factor of eight than they do with neurotypicals so it is little wonder that they surround themselves with virtual cloaks of invisibility to isolate themselves from the rest of humankind, especially their own kind of humankind.
Take me for example. I had a dreadful time at school. Though I had a wonderful time at Nursery and Infants School level, it exposed a great many eugenics reasons that I should be exterminated, so the Head Teacher of the Primary School that I graduated to publicised these to the rest of the school at morning assembly on the first day of my attendance, nicknamed me, 'Witchcraft' and reminded the rest of the school that the Bible says, "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live", effectively declaring open season on any and / or all of them hunting me down and killing me.
And that's what they tried to do, including him, and very nearly succeeded.
Consequently, after a week of being kicked and beaten into deep comas and being left for dead at least twice day, I attempted to take my own life after school on the fifth day, ending in a frozen comatose hibernation in a freezer in a local co-op industrial dairy for 48 hours before being found.
My parents therefore with-drew me from state-provided education and arranged for me to be privately educated by our church for the next four years, and professional articled pupillage at a nearby Grammar School for the next four years with a view to qualifying as the church's professional Squire, Surveyor, Town Planner, Architect, and Structural, Civil, Municipal, Highways and Drainage Engineer of Real Estate of the Crown of God, Queen and Country, to assist in the selection, acquisition, design and development of fully-integrated, self-sufficient and sustainable missionary settlements worldwide.
Some of my protagonists also attended the Grammar School, and attacked and left me for dead each morning for about a year, until special arrangements were put in place for my protection from them; however, they lay in wait for me, on the day I qualified, the final day of my articled pupillage, before I was about to sail abroad to take up my first commission, and injured me so badly that my appointment was dropped by the church and I had to be retrained for 15 years, by which time the church had made its own arrangements, so I never got to take up the role planned for me.
The incident left me susceptible to nervous breakdowns, attacks of amnesias and a considerable amount of fear, anxiety, stress and paranoia that my protagonists would find me and finish me off, despite the smokescreen and promise of a military response to any further eugenic threats on my health and wellbeing, by UK, USA, EU, and UN military intelligence organisations I worked with in secret projects during my retraining and subsequently due to my paranormal autie / aspie gifts.
Due to my Official Secrets Act situation, my choice of friendships, was strictly curtailed, as they all required military clearance by these organisations, before I could even contemplate encouraging them, but I never found this intruded on my need to have friends, because I had more dead spooks as my guides, mentors, saints and heroes, since my birth, due to my paranormal autie / aspie gifts, than live spooks as my protectors in my teens and adult life, due to that same portmanteau.
So, my advice to you, young Bus, is to look to your paranormal autie / aspie gifts for the 'invisible' guides, mentors, saints and heroes of your infancy, childhood and early teens, because they have never left you high and dry, as your live 'spooks' so readily do when they get fed up with you.
