Exceed not in your religion the bounds

“They do blaspheme who say: “Allah is Christ the son of Mary.” But said Christ: “O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord & your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, & the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help. Continue reading

Winter in Sedona is a relative term.  I spent the morning scrambling over the odd icy patch but was in shorts for most of the day.  It can snow here but only a few times a year.  Coming from Canada’s frozen lands, I find this part of Arizona’s version of this season very appealing.  I hiked around for much of the day and ended up at Red Rock Crossing in the afternoon.  Cathedral Rock is a siren’s call for artists and I spent hours enjoying the views across Oak Creek and up to the red rocks.  I love the colour palette with the gray branches of the dormant trees, the colourful rocks above and below with the yellow grasses providing a nice bridge to tie them…

… Not in Alberta though.  Bobbi and I were in Sedona, Arizona last week and we learned that there was one species of Hummingbird that stays in the area through the winter.  In the spring and summer, there can be up to 14 different types of Hummingbirds there but only the Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna) will spend the full year.

No fear

“If only the People of the Book had believed & been righteous, We should indeed have blotted out their iniquities & admitted them to gardens of bliss.

If only they had stood fast by the Law, the Gospel, & all the revelation that was sent to them from their Lord, they would have enjoyed happiness from every side. There is from among them a party on the right course: but many of them follow a course that is evil. Continue reading

We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law

“It was We who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance & light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah’s will, by the rabbis & the doctors of law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah’s book, & they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear me, & sell not my signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers. Continue reading
