MAKTUB …. At the end of the day …. To start the day!!

~~June 22, 2014~~

Maktub is an alchemist term (arabic word) which literally means it is written. From mystical point of view, it points to the fact that whatever happens is already known to the One. It signifies that Destiny exists. It points finger to the fact that everything is already known to God.

Now there is a big problem here. Many people become atheist (or lose faith in God) from misunderstanding the concept of Destiny and from the claim by the theist that God knows everything including our future. An Atheist argue, if God knows everything, then what is the point of punishment or reward? whats the point of Heaven or Hell?

If you are an atheist or deny God then you may put forward more such points.

If you are an atheist or believe in God and the fact that God knows all (so also future), then how do you answer the question?

“There is a work of art each of us was destined to create. That is the central point of our life, and -no matter how we try to deceive ourselves -we know how important it is to our happiness. Usually, that work of art is covered by years of fears, guilt and indecision. But, if we decide to remove those things that do not belong, if we have no doubt as to our capability, we are capable of going forward with the mission that is our destiny. That is the only way to live with honor.”
~~Paulo CoelhoMaktub~~

“Confront your path with courage, and don’t be afraid of the criticism of others. And, above all, don’t allow yourself to become paralyzed by self-criticism. “God will be with you on your sleepless nights, and will dry your tears with His love. God is for the valiant.”

“If you accept such love with purity and humility, you will understand that Love is neither giving nor receiving – it is participating.”
