Summary

A guide to the secrets of rune-reading, an ancient predictive art, that teaches you how to lay out runes and interpret them instantly.
Once the sacred alphabet of the Germanic people of Northern Europe, runes are more than 2,000 years old. Runes (meaning a secret or mystery) were words of power, once carved on amulets, rings and weapons, and found as inscriptions on tombstones. The 1st rune, Fehu, is connected with cattle, and since wealth was measured in the number of cows a person owned, it has an underlying meaning of material wealth. The 11th rune, Isa, literally means 'ice', signifying danger and the probability of slipping up. Likewise, the 17th rune, Tiwaz, shares its significance with the North Star as an aid to navigation and charting life's path. In this insightful book, each of the runes is fully described, together with the symbolic images and celestial phenomena associated with them. Methods of laying out, or 'casting' the runes are described in order to give a full and comprehensive reading to answer any question. There are six spreads to choose from, from Odin's Rune, a simple reading with one rune stone, to using up to nine runes for deeper insight into the past, present and future.

    The Translation & The Meaning of Surah Al-Fatihah & Surah Al-Baqarah from The Holy Quran In English Languange.S?rat al-F?ti?ah (Arabic: ??????? ????????????) is the first chapter (surah) of the Quran. Its seven verses (ayat) are a prayer for the guidance, lordship and mercy of God. This chapter has an essential role in Islamic prayer (sal?t). The primary literal meaning of the expression "al-F?ti?ah" is "The Opener," which could refer to this Surah being "the opener of the Book" (F?ti?at al-kit?b), to its being the first Surah recited in full in every prayer cycle (rak?ah), or to the manner in which it serves as an opening for many functions in everyday Islamic life. Some Muslims interpret it as a reference to an implied ability of the Surah to open a person to faith in God. The name al-F?ti?ah ("the Opener") is due to the subject-matter of the surah. F?ti?ah is that which opens a subject or a book or any other thing. It is also called Umm Al-Kitab ("the Mother of the Book") and Umm Al-Quran ("the Mother of the Quran"); Sab'a al Mathani ("Seven repeated [verses]", an appellation taken from verse 15:87 of the Quran); Al-Hamd ("praise"), because a hadith narrates Prophet Muhammad SAW  as having said: "The prayer [al-F?ti?ah] is divided into two halves between Me and My servants. When the servant says, 'All praise is due to God', the Lord of existence, God says, 'My servant has praised Me'."; Al-Shifa' ("the Cure"), because a hadith narrates Prophet Muhammad SAW as having said: "The Opening of the Book is a cure for every poison.", Al-Ruqyah ("remedy" or "spiritual cure").,and al-Asas, "The Foundation", referring to its serving as a foundation for the entire Quran. S?rah al-Baqarah or "The Cow" is the second and longest chapter (Surah) of the Qur'an. It consists of 286 verses, 6201 words and 25500 letters (Ibn Kathir). It is a Mediniite surah, that is to say that it was revealed at Medina after the Hijrah.
