This topic is on everyones mind. Protection of the fittest. Stockpiling herbs and seeds a must. Saving funds for a rainy day required. A new car, give me a break. Now we have interest and end up paying three times for the car.
Makes better sense to walk or take a bus and save for a used car and pay cash. I am very against interest in any shape or form. We as Muslims live a modest life. Not so much extras but I do have the necessities. Like I have a nokia mobile phone. It cost me 55 jds. Some models cost 400jd, to me that is a crime in itself. Now I have a beautiful home I pay 70jd a month for instead of a luxury home costing 150 or more. See what I am getting out, quit competing with the Jones and live within your means.
Now if you feel bad because you don't have the same as your neighbor then this jealousy and this is a punishment in this world and the next. I am thrilled when anyone I know gets married, has a new home and just plain has good luck. I never have "hasad" or jealousy as it comes back on us.
So now if A and B don't agree then there has to be a compromise. My mentor, Chrisb1, had ideals of how I should get well and I had ideals on how I should get well and we compromised with a big emphasis on b (that's me). We still stayed friends and he is still my mentor. Why because A and B compromised within means. Now I follow his diet, because A (that's Chris") allowed me freedom to choose. So thru his patience, I came back to his way and have joined forces with him. A being very smart to give B freedom to choose. So now A does love meat more than B so B allows A to eat his meat but continues still on her B diet.
See what I mean Steve, compromise of ideals in the end bring around the best results. So I have the best of both worlds. The knowledge of A and C. Now who is C. Why C Steve is you.
