How are pens like people?
Comparing people to the "pen"
Pens can be like people in so many ways. Compare the 'personality' the pen to the characterists of a 'good pencil' mentioned in our article about "Advice to a Pencil"
The Personality of the "Pen":
1: Pens need not be concerned about staying "sharp."
2: Only when it sheds black blood from its tip does it work.
3: Pens spread the borrowed ink of idelology (kufr - disbelief)
4: The pen makes mistakes most difficult to correct.
5: The pen often leaves its mark in wrong places (clothing, furniture etc.)
6: The pen becomes blunt and ceases to preform even with small pressure on its tip.
7: The pen's appearance is often well decorated, yet it's made from cheap plastic or metal.
8: The pen's impressive appearance remains long after it no longer serves its purpose.
9: The pen has nothing natural or authentic about it.
Sadly enough pens seem to be rapidly replacing pencils more and more everyday.
___The old saying goes,
"You can fool some of the people all of the time; all of the people some of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."
Allah the Almighty, says in His Quran (Recitation) in Surah Al Anbiya (The Prophets) [21:18]:
بَلْ نَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ فَيَدْمَغُهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ وَلَكُمُ الْوَيْلُ مِمَّاPronounced: "Bal naqthifu bialhaqqi AAala albatili fayad-maghuhu fa-itha huwa zahiqun walakumu alwaylu mimma tasifoona"
Nay, Allah flings (sends down) the truth (this Qur'an) against the falsehood (disbelief), so it destroys it, and behold, it (falsehood) is vanished. And woe to you for that (lie) which you ascribe (to Us) (against Allah by uttering that Allah has a wife and a son).
