    The Meaning of Surah 47 Muhammad...

    Surah Muhammad (Arabic: ??????? ????????????, "Chapter of Muhammad") is the 47th surah of The Holy Qur'an with 38 ayat (verse). This thirty-eight verse chapter was revealed in Medina. It is generally understood that Median chapters focus on the establishment of a functioning Muslim society. This one is no different and tackles several subjects including war, what happens to those who try to prevent others from converting to Islam and the futility of opposing God and His Prophet. At the time of revelation, the disbelievers had succeeded in driving Prophet Muhammad SAW, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, and his followers out of Mecca, however, by doing so they sealed their own fate. The title comes from the mention of Prophet Muhammad’s name in verse two. Surah Muhammad (árabe: ??????? ???????????, "Chapter of Muhammad") es la 47ª surah del Sagrado Corán con 38 ayat. Este capítulo de treinta y ocho versículos fue revelado en Medina. En general se entiende que los capítulos de la mediana se centran en el establecimiento de una sociedad musulmana que funcione. Este no es diferente y aborda varios temas, incluyendo la guerra, lo que les sucede a aquellos que tratan de impedir que otros se conviertan al Islam y la futilidad de oponerse a Dios y a Su Profeta. En el momento de la revelación, los incrédulos habían logrado conducir al Profeta Muhammad, que la misericordia y las bendiciones de Dios sean sobre él, y sus seguidores fuera de La Meca, sin embargo, al hacerlo sellaron su propio destino. El título viene de la mención del nombre del Profeta Mahoma en el versículo dos.

    The Science Of Being Great is the third book in the The Science Of... series. In this book, Wattles rounds out the trilogy with his unique perspective on how you can attain greatness and tap into the Principle of Power to unleash your inner genius and become what you want to be. Here is an excerpt from the first chapter of the book: "Any Person May Become Great. There is a Principle of Power in every person. By the intelligent use and direction of this principle, man can develop his own mental faculties. Man has an inherent power by which he may grow in whatsoever direction he pleases, and there does not appear to be any limit to the possibilities of his growth. No man has yet become so great in any faculty but that it is possible for some one else to become greater. The possibility is in the Original Substance from which man is made. Genius is Omniscience flowing into man. Genius is more than talent. Talent may merely be one faculty developed out of proportion to other faculties, but genius is the union of man and God in the acts of the soul. Great men are always greater than their deeds. They are in connection with a reserve power that is without limit. We do not know where the boundary of the mental powers of man is; we do not even know that there is a boundary. The power of conscious growth is not given to the lower animals; it is man's alone and may be developed and increased by him. The lower animals can, to a great extent, be trained and developed by man; but man can train and develop himself. He alone has this power, and he has it to an apparently unlimited extent." In this digitally mastered audiobook the narrator captures the spirit and enthusiasm of Wallace Wattles, and his captivating voice makes it a pleasure to digest and learn the material. One of the best audio editions of this book.
