Who wants to carry on being a failure?
Failure. Not a great word is it? It is a very negative word, it says nothing good happened at all. But it's still a word that is used a lot by so many people. Here in UK as this is being written there is a huge buzz in media about an alternative phrase for word failure. This buzz centres around a group of school teachers who have decided that failure is not an option for children they teach. Now they just have "deferred success". Of course media is sensationalising phrase as Political correctness, but I can see where they are going with this.
Deferred success, I like sound of it don't you? It was said by someone (and repeated by many) that you haven't failed until you actually stop trying. When you look right at it, deferred success means exactly same thing. In a classroom they will make you do something over and over until you get it right, so until they give up doing it, no one has failed. If they eventually grasp lesson then their success was only deferred until a later time.
Islam helps youWritten by Wael El-Manzalawy
I discussed many persons who were against religion of any kind. I used to ask them three questions. I used ,as well, to invite them to think deeply and clearly before answering my questions. These questions are: 1-Do you think that there is a Creator who has created this universe? 2-Should we worship Creator of universe or not? 3-Have you made a comparison between Islam and other doctrines?
As regards first question, I do not know reason that makes some people deny presence of God. The universe, sky, stars, sea, air are clear evidences that there is a Creator who has created this universe. The greatness of universe is a clear evidence that a Great God has created it. The answer of first question leads us to necessity of religion. How can you live in this universe without worshipping Creator of universe?
