that he doesnt know how to ask in an "afrikan" way.

.....and for yall to expect anything less than that from him, is expecting to much.

was it not explained how god and the world was viewed, yet he still asked the way he views god and the world?

he has to ask his own way to get an understanding, and if possible you should to answer him in the way that he asks to make him understand, if you want him to. dont be selfish like that.

its not about lowering your own standards. dont think about it like that. think about it as getting the goal of understanding accomplished. that is unless you dont want ppl to understand.

like when i asked some questions about afrika, "european" style, and nearly got my online neck broke. i said from that point, if this is the afrikan way of doing things, then i am not interested. and there was nothing but sincerity on my part in asking what i asked the way i asked. if i knew how to ask in an "afrikan" manner, i would have. but no one took the time to think about that, and use wisdom and understanding in that situation. some ppl screamed on me, and the rest were like "yeah, get'em!" not good at all.

listening is the key to thinking.
thinking is the key to understanding.
understanding is the key to practice.
practice is the key to nearing perfection.
nearing perfection is the ultimate goal.

if you are teaching, you expect something out of the students. when you guys were in college, didnt your instructor tell you what he expected out of you. well do the same when you assume the "teacher role" on okayplayer.

tell ppl when you ask questions, try not to think about it in this way, but use this way. and dont wait until they do what you dont want them to do to advise them. that will only frustrate you and you plans.

who is Prophet Muhammad -salla Allahu 'alaihi wa sallam (peace be upon him)? click here to read his biography entitled, "Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum" (The Sealed Nectar) :

Narrated Aisha (Prophet Muhammad's wife):
The Prophet used to offer prayer at night (for such a long time) that his feet used to crack. I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Why do you do it since Allah has forgiven you your faults of the past and those to follow?" He said, "Shouldn't I love to be a thankful slave (of Allah)?' When he became old, he prayed while sitting, but if he wanted to perform a bowing, he wound get up, recite (some other verses) and then perform the bowing.

subhaanakallahumma (Glory be to you, Oh Allah), wabihamdika (and I praise You). ashhadu anla ilaha illa anta (I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You). astaghfiruka (I seek Your forgiveness), wa attuubu ilaika (and I turn to You in Repentance).
