Question by Kasia: What kind of geometry is used when objects in water stick out and form an illusion?
Sorry my question might sound a little confusing…
but what i mean is, say you have a reed in a pond. The part of the reed that sticks out above water looks straight, but the part that is underwater looks diagonal. A lot of straight things make this illusion when you put them in water, even a straw in a cup of soda.
What is this illusion called? and does it use any geometry?

Answer by Ms. Worth
The phenomenon is called “refraction.”

This is Allah (60) Allah Inspired Moses: Throw Your Stick

Edit Article |

Posted: Nov 04, 2008 |Comments: 0

Many people do not know Allah. This series (1-60) is an attempt to help them to know their Creator.

Verses 7:115-118 of the Noble Quran talk about: 1) the Egyptian sorcerers produced a mighty sorcery and scared the people, 2) the illusion created by the Egyptian sorcerers were transformed by delusion, 3) Allah inspired Moses: Throw Your Stick,  4) Moses threw his staff and it swallowed up their lying show of the Egyptian sorcerers and 5) Moses won and the Egyptian sorcerers failed.

————

In the previous articles (58-59)

Moses said: O Pharaoh! I am a messenger from Allah to you,

Pharaoh said: You are lying!

Moses said: when talking about to Allah it is compulsory to say the truth. Truly I have come to you with a clear signs from Allah.

Pharaoh Said: If you have come with a sign, then produce it.

Then Moses cast down, he flung down his staff and it was an enormous huge snake manifest for all to see,

And he drew forth his hand, he took it out from his bosom (armpit), and it was white, radiant and shining for the beholders.

The chiefs of Pharaoh’s council said: Lo! this is some knowing wizard who is proficient in wizardry. Surely this man is a cunning sorcerer, outstanding in the art of magic. The aim of this man (Moses) is to expel you from your land of Egypt.  This was not true, the aim of Moses was to take the children of Israel out of Egypt

Then Pharaoh said:

Now what do you advise? What we should do concerning this matter?

They said unto Pharaoh:

We should bring every cunning sorcerer, who is proficient in wizardry to outdo Moses in the art of magic.  And so they summoned many of the knowing wizards.

And the sorcerers who were 70 in number came to Pharaoh, and they said: Surely there will be a great reward for us if we are victors against Moses.

Pharaoh answered: Yes of course you have that, and surely you shall be of those brought near to me in status.  Then what?

————

The meaning of verse 7:115

The Egyptian sorcerers who were proficient in wizardry said:

O Moses! Either you throw first or let us be the first throwers

Either you cast, your staff, or we shall be the casters!’, of what we have.

The meaning of verse 7:116

Moses said:

Cast! Throw first whatever you are going to throw! This is a sort of command permitting them to cast first, as a means to manifesting the truth.

 And when they cast, their ropes and staffs, they put a spell upon the people’s eyes, misleading them from perceiving the real state of these ropes and staffs, and overawed them, scared them, by making their ropes appear to be slithering snakes, and produced a mighty sorcery.

In other words, when they threw 70 staffs and 70 ropes, they cast a spell upon the people’s eyes, and overawed them scared them, and produced a mighty spell; it is also said that this means: a clear lie.

The meaning of verse 7:117

And Allah revealed to Moses [saying]: ‘Cast your staff.’ And lo! it swallowed up the illusion they were creating, that which they were transforming by delusion.

In other words, Allah inspired Moses (saying): Throw your staff!  And he threw it. And lo! it swallowed up their lying show, their staffs and ropes.

The meaning of verse 7:118

Thus did the truth come to pass, thus it was confirmed and made manifest; and that which they were doing, in the way of sorcery, was proved false.

In other words, thus the Truth was vindicated; it became clear that Moses was right; and that which the Egyptian sorcerers were doing of sorcery was made vain, fizzled away.

============

Verses 7:115-118 in different English translations of the meanings of Arabic Quran:

Verse 7:115

QARIB: they said: ‘moses, will you throw first or shall we be the throwers? ‘

SHAKIR: they said: o musa! will you cast, or shall we be the first to cast?

PICKTHAL: they said: o moses! either throw (first) or let us be the first throwers?

YUSUFALI: they said: “o moses! wilt thou throw (first), or shall we have the (first) throw?”

Verse 7:116

QARIB: ‘throw, ‘ he replied. and when they threw, they bewitched the people’s eyes and terrified them, and produced great sorcery.

SHAKIR: he said: cast. so when they cast, they deceived the people’s eyes and frightened them, and they produced a mighty enchantment

PICKTHAL: he said: throw! and when they threw they cast a spell upon the people’s eyes, and overawed them, and produced a mighty spell.

YUSUFALI: said moses: “throw ye (first).” so when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people, and struck terror into them: for they showed a great (feat of) magic.

Verse 7:117

QARIB: then we revealed to moses: ‘now, throw down your staff. ‘ and thereupon it swallowed up their false invention.

SHAKIR: and we revealed to musa, saying: cast your rod; then lo! it devoured the lies they told

PICKTHAL: and we inspired moses (saying): throw thy staff! and lo! it swallowed up their lying show.

YUSUFALI: we put it into moses’s mind by inspiration: “throw (now) thy rod”:and behold! it swallows up straight away all the falsehoods which they fake!

Verse 7:118

QARIB: so, the truth prevailed and what they were doing was annulled;

SHAKIR: so the truth was established, and what they did became null

PICKTHAL: thus was the truth vindicated and that which they were doing was made vain.

YUSUFALI: thus truth was confirmed, and all that they did was made of no effect.

Where Is the Loving Church Jesus Desired and Whose Foundations He Constructed

To love God is not predicated by adherence and affinity through any particular religion, thus one may ask why religions are so dogmatic. Time in history is irrelevant when it comes to abuse within religions and it would appear the past has not been a teacher to the present or perhaps religious leaders are obstinate students.

Archangel Metatron Explains Bible Myths and Our Relation to God, Light, The One Conscious Energy

Archangel Metatron explains how stories were crafted, to make heroes of people, like Jesus, which ended up as myths recorded in the Bible. These hero myths were created, to bring forward hope, that all was not lost. Metatron tells us to look at the disciple Paul’s authentic letters, for clarity of history at that time; and explains how we are formed, in relation to the universes, and our connection to God, light, the one conscious energy.

In this article, the prophets are the best chosen people among the human beings. Their death is different than our death.

The gate of repentance is open 24 hours, 365 days a year. Allah accepts only the repentance of those who sin and do evil even if they do so purposefully while being ignorant. On the other hand, Allah does not accept the Repentance of those who do evil deeds, sins, until; when Death approaches them they repent.

Question by D.Chen: Why do hermits, mystics, philosophers, monastics get the short end of the stick?
In terms of being “disciplined” or reprimanded by both secular authorities and religious hierarchies?

The Daoist Sage, the Christian Monk, the Jewish Kabbalist, the Sufi Mystic, the Buddhist itinerant, and even the noble Materialist/Atheist philosopher (Epicurus comes to mind) usually seem to suffer badly throughout history at the hands of the holders of power – even if the holders of said power may publicly espouse similar beliefs.

Why do you think that is the case?
