Consider the word ‘embody’ rather than ‘enforce’ in this work, and remember that diacritical marks are certainly changes to the original text, but were added to elucidate pronunciation for non-Arabic readers without changing the original text.

In English consider how the word read can mean reading now well as mean having read

(Hence, despite assertions by the faithful that the text has never changed, it is wise to note Our Prophet Mohammed never insisted on only one spoken pronunciation of a written word which could be pronounced differently, and hence mean different things, apparently because the various meanings were also holy revelation. In that sense the addition of diacritical remarks soon ended that beautiful trust in the reader’s discernment even though “the text” per se is indeed “unchanged.”

May peace be upon you

In the original Quran, some words could be read to mean more than one thing, and some letters in Quran to this day remain a mystery.

Yet another #TrumpsPeak E.O. headed to coort

Being that “ Executive
Order on ‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’ issued by President Donald
Trump on January 30, 2017, and Interim Guidance issued by the Office of Management and
Budget (OMB) on February 2, 2017, regarding implementation of the Executive Order.

Executive Order exceeds President Trump’s constitutional authority, violates his duty under the
Take Care Clause of the Constitution, and directs federal agencies to engage in unlawful actions
that will harm countless Americans, including plaintiffs’ members. ”

Basically it just means it looks like he’s oh so busy, and that makes him happy.


Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm.
For strong as death is love,
Harsh as the netherworld (Sheol) is passion.
Her flames are flames of fire,
a mighty blaze.

 Torrents of water cannot extinguish love,
Rivers cannot sweep it away!
[Yet] if a man were to expend
all the wealth of his house for love,
[People] would surely heap scorn upon him.

(Song of Songs 8:6–7)
