Avicenna

Avicenna

commonly known as Ibn Sīnā or by his Latinized name Avicenna, was a Persian polymath
The knowledge of anything, since all things have causes, is not acquired or complete unless it is known by its causes.More Avicenna quotes [07/13/2011 02:07:02]
The life of a non-Muslim to Muslim is worth as much as the life of a chicken is worth to you and me. We don't go around killing every chicken we see. In fact we keep them and feed them as long as they are useful to us. But we don't lose sleep when we have to slaughter them. So it is not that Muslims will necessarily go around massacring every non-Muslim. As long as these non-Muslims are useful to them, they are granted protection.More Avicenna quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No plasticity exists in the Quran. This book is believed by Muslims to be the verbatim words of God. How can you change the word of God? Other religions are living. They are changing and evolving. Islam is fossilized. It allows no change. It can't be reformed.More Avicenna quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Words can mean different things to different people. It is important to understand what people mean when they use a certain word. Let's make an example. Take the word gay. Fifty years ago, gay meant exclusively cheerfulness, lighthearted excitement, merry or bright colors. Today this word has a different meaning. You won't call a cheerful person gay because it could be understood as something else.More Avicenna quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A bear and a deer are both wild animals. We allow the deer to roam in our backyard but we do not give the same right to the bear. It is because the bear is dangerous. Neither the bear nor the deer have rights. We humans give them rights. Taking in account our own security, we give to some animals some rights and deny the same to other animals.More Avicenna quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
