بعض المقالات بالعربية للأديب والشاعر والكاتب المهجري

المقال: بين الدين والعلم: مصالحة مع داروين

منذ أن بدأ داروين الحديث عن نظريته الشهيرة حول تطور الإنسان حتى انقسم العالم والعلماء في الشرق والغرب والشمال والجنوب بين فريقين أو أكثر ، أحدهما مع تمجيد وتطبيق النظرية التطورية التي نادى بها ، بينما الفريق الآخر الذي وقف ضدها وضد المنادين بها كفكرة ترفض نظرية الخلق التي بدأت بآدم وحواء. ويتصف الفريق الأول بالمنطق والعقل والابتكار البشري في دراسة التطور البشري ، بينما يمثل الفريق الثاني أصحاب الديانات التي تنادي بنظرية الخلق . ولعل هناك فريق لا يتصف بالتصدي للنظرية الداروينية ولا يتصدى للنظرية الخلقية السماوية ، فبقي متفرجا أو تابعا لنظرية الخلق مرة وتابعا لنظرية التطور مرات أخرى .

وفي الولايات المتحدة كأي بلد آخر تقاسمته مجموعات عدة ، أحدها يدافع عن الدين ويهاجم الداروينية ، وثانيها يدافع عن الداروينية بل ويتبناها في الحكم والفصل بين الناس والشعوب وفي نفس الوقت يهاجم نظرية الخلق الدينية كما يهاجم الأديان كلها . أما الفريق المتفرج من غير العلماء فليس يعنينا كثيرا في هذه المقالة وإن كانت أهميته لا تقل عن أهمية الفريقين ، نظرا لأعدادهم في الولايات المتحدة وباقي دول العالم .

أما الفريق الذي يهمنا هنا هو فريق العلماء الذي لا ينتمي لأحد الفريقين فما يهم العلماء هو البحث في أسباب ظهور تلك النظرية ومدى تأثيرها على الشعوب والأفراد. لذا فإن موقف العلماء يتميز عن المهاجمين والمدافعين الرافضين للنظرية الداروينية على حد سواء.

وأرى أن الحاجة الملحة في الولايات المتحدة كانت وما تزال هي الحاجة لجعل الولايات المتحدة قوية الإيمان بدينها إلى جانب قوتها في الأبحاث العلمية والإبداعية . لذا فقد أصبح التحدي يدفع العلماء للتواؤم بين الدين والعلم أي بين نظريتي الخلق والتطور . ومع مرور الأيام منذ أوقات داروين والمؤمنون بنظريته ، المدافعون عنها يتناقصون يوما بعد يوم. فقد أثبتت البحوث الأخيرة أن نسبة الأمريكان الذين يقبلون بمبدأ داروين أصبح حوالي أربعين بالمائة علما أنه كان خمسة وأربعين في المائة قبل ثلاثين عاما .

ولم يدر في خلد الأمريكان أن كلا من النظريتين : نظرية الخلق الإلهي التي تعتمد على وجود الآلهة ، ونظرية التطور التي نادى بها داروين ، تجيب على أسئلة مختلفة تماما . ويحاول البعض التركيز على اتحاد النظريتين (الخلق والتطور)، بينما الفرق واضح في الزمان والمكان ، حيث أن بدء الخليقة يختلف عن بدء خلق آدم وحواء على الأرض، فبينما تقدر النظرية الخلقية لآدم وحواء حسب الكتب المقدسة بما لا يزيد عن ستة آلاف سنة ، وقد تصل حسب كتب التاريخ إلى عشرة آلاف سنة على أبعد تقدير ، تقوم نظرية التطور بتقدير خلق العالم بما فيه من حيوانات متوحشة كالديناصورات مثلا إلى أكثر من أربعمائة مليون سنة ، وهذا الاختلاف يقلل من النظريتين لعدم إثبات أي منهما والتأكد من حقيقتهما علميا .

وفي رأيي المتواضع أن بقاء النظريتين منفصلتين أفضل من رفضهما معا أو رفض أحدهما باتباع الأخرى . فكل نظرية كما سبق أن قلنا تفسر مسألة مختلفة عن تفسير النظرية الأخرى . فمثلا، النظرية الداروينية تفسر "كيف" حصل الخلق بينما نظرية الخلق تفسر أسئلة حول "لماذا" تم الخلق للبشرية . ، لأن الدين يفسر لماذا خلق البشر والعلم يفسر كيف تطورت الحياة على الأرض. وهذا فرق واضح بين العلم وبين الدين أو بين نظرية التطور ونظرية الخلق ، وحين أقرأ القرآن أو الإنجيل أو التوراة لا أنظر إلى المعلومات العلمية ، مع أن فيها ما يستعي النظر علميا ، خاصة فيما يتعلق بكيفية بناء الحياة البشرية ، وقصص الأولين من الأقوام البائدة التي قطنت الأرض . ولكني أقرأ التفسيرات المبنية على أساس الإيمان حول لماذا خلق الإنسان على هذه الأرض وما هي وظيفتنا كعلماء تجاهه .  فالدين في كثير من التساؤلات يعطي معاني للأسئلة التي تدور في أذهان القراء للكتب المقدسة ، بينما يمتاز العلم باكتشاف آليات العالم الذي نعيش فيه .

وتورد قصص الكتب المقدسة الرسمية وغير الرسمية قصصا تكاد تكون متشابهة في معنى قضية الخلق ، أكثر من الاهتمام بأسئلة ما خلف عملية الخلق . وكلا من العلم والدين يعطينا إجابات على أسئلة مختلفة مما يزيد معلوماتنا في اتجاهين متضادين ولكنهما لا يتصارعان إلى درجة القطيعة .

ويالنسبة للعلم فإنه لا يرى أن الله خلف تصرف كل حيوان أو نبات أو إنسان ، ولكنه يرى أو يحاول إيجاد أجوبة لأسئلته عن طريق التجربة والملاحظة ، وإيراد البراهين وإعادة تلك التجارب عدة مرات حتى يصل إلى الحقيقة فيما يبحث ، وليس وجود الله أو عدم وجوده ضمن حدود العلم ليصل إلى حقيقة قاطعة خارج نطاق الإيمان والعقيدة التي تقطع بذلك الأمر.

أما نظرية التطور الداروينية ، حقيقة ، فهي تشكل أسس البيولوجيا الحديثة ، وقد أثبتت فعاليتها بأنها صحيحة علميا (الجانب البيولوجي التطوري هو ما أقصده هنا) لا النظرية الخلقية للإنسان . فمن خلال الأبحاث وإعادة الأبحاث العلمية نفسها أعطت العلماء أجوبة محددة حول آليات تطور الحياة البشرية ولكن الحقائق التي تم التوصل إليها لم تفسر معنى خلق الإنسان ولماذا خلق على هذه الأرض.

ومن المعقول أن هذه الأجوبة بالتأكيد لا تتعني أن العلم والدين متنافران أو أنهما يتجهان إلى خلاف لا محالة! ويرى بعض العلماء - والكاتب منهم - أنه لا تضارب بين ما تنادي به الأديان وما يتم اكتشافه حول جينات البشر. حيث إن فهم سؤال "كيف خلق الإنسان؟" لا ينفي فهم سؤال: "لماذا خلق الإنسان؟" فخلق الإنسان شيء ، ومن وراء خلقه شيء آخر. والعلم يهتم بخلق الإنسان وتطوره بعد الخلق ، دون فلسفات البحث فيمن خلق الكون كله بما فيه من الإنسان والنبات والحيوان ، بعد أن أصبح الكون وخاصة الأرض تربة وبيئة صالحة أولا ليكون مناسبا لعيش الإنسان .

وللكلمات أهميتها في الكتب المقدسة ، فبالكلمة تم خلق آدم ، أبو البشر ، ففي الإسلام هناك كلمتان مهمتان حول الخلق والخليقة وهم كلمتا "كن فيكون" ومعناهما في العربية واضح حول الخالق وما خلق ، أمر واستجابة لأمر . فكلمة "كن" هي الأمر الإلهي لوجود شيء لم يكن موجودا من قبل على شاكلته ، وكلمة "يكون" هي الخلق بعد الأمر الإلهي . ، ولولا قوة الله الخالق وإرادته لما تم الخلق ، ولكن إذا شاء أمر فكان ما أمر حقيقة واقعة ، وفي الإنجيل (القجيم والجديد) وضوح الكلمة شاهد على ذلك. حيث رود عن الله قوله : "ليكن الضياء ، فكان ضياء" ، وفي أناجيل أخرى على لسان جون يقول الله: "الكلمة أصبحت لحما غعاشت بيننا" ، كعيسى عليه السلام . وقد يتفق أو لا يتفق المهتمون بالأديان والعوام من البشر التابعين لتلك الأديان إلا أن هناك شبه اتفاق حول الكلمة نفسها "كن" لأن الله أمر فكان ما أمر أمرا واقعا .

مما سبق يمكن القول أن هناك صلة بين الدين والعلم ، فالعلم يهتم بالأشياء بينما الدين يهتم بكنه الأشياء كالكلمات. وحين يباشر العلماء أبحاثهم وتجاربهم العلمية فهم يقيسون ملامح الأشياء المادية من طول وعرض وارتفاع ووزن ، ولا توجد كلمات لتغيير الواقع للأشياء ، ولكن المنادين بالأديان يستعملون الكلمات ليكرسوا مفهوما لخلق معنى جديد للفهم البشري وتجاربه من خلال الإيمان والعقائد، وليس هناك أسمى من الكلمات الدينية حين تستعمل بشكل جيد خاصة في أمور تتعلق بجدود الفهم الإنساني المحدود مكانا وزمانا وعلما ، وقد كان للكلمات المنطوقة من أصحاب الأديان والأنبياء أثر كبير في تغيير السلوك الإنساني وإعادة صياغة التاريخ . فالحروب الإسلامية الأولى اعتمدت على بضع كلمات ولكنها قلبت موازين الأرض وموازين البشر ، وهذه الكلمات هي: "لا إله إلا الله" وفي المسيحية جعلت الحروب الصليبية تبدأ ولا تنتهي ، وكان لكلمات الديمقراطية والاشتراكية والنازية والمساواة أثر في تغيير مجرى التاريخ ، وأخرها كان 11 سبتمبر الذي غير كثيرا من المفاهيم حقا أو باطلاز وكلمات مارتن لوثر كنغ ومالكولم إكس كان لها أبعد الأثر في تغيير مسار التار وكلمة أخيرة قبل ختام هذا المقال ، فإن الدعوة إلى تضافر الجهود لتوحيد النظريتين: نظرية الخلق ونظرية التطور، أمر يفيد البشرية ، ويحدد مجالات كل منهما فيما وجدت له أو داعية إليه ، بمعنى أن للدين مجال في الحياة البشرية لا يمكن الاستغناء عنه ، وفي النظرية التطورية مجال أيضا لا يمكن الاستغناء عنه وهو البحث والتقصي حول السلوك الإنساني وجيناته البيولوجية ، وكلاهما لا يجوز الاستغناء عنهما ، فالأول مجال روحي سماوي ، والثاني مجال مادي وجودي ، ولا نريد النظر في سلبيات كل منحى منهما على حساب الآخر ، فقد خلق الله الدماغ في الإنسان وشرفه على باقي المخلوقات ، لا ليضعه معلقا في سلة تتدلى من السقف للتعبد بها ، وإنما لاستعمال العقل فيما يفيد ويزيدنا معرفة لما يكتشف من علوم الله (غير المحدودة) التي لن يصل إليها البشر ولا البشرية حتى يوم القيامة ، حيث إنه لكل شيء يخص البشر حدود لا يستطيعون تعديها .

والتاريخ في كل مراحله ، أثبت أن نظرية داروين التي تطورت فيما بعد إلى "البقاء للأصلح" الذي تبناه هيربرت سبنسر المؤيد بدون تحفظ لنظرية داروين ، أنها فشلت تاريخيا فشلا ذريعا . فما زال الصالح والأقل صلاحا يعيشان جنبا إلى جنب ، لأن الخير والشر يتلازمان ولا يوجد أحدهما إلا بوجود الآخر ، عبر التاريخ وحتى يومنا هذا وحتى إلى يوم يبعثون . ويبقى الدين في هذه الحالة هو العامل الوحيد الذي يقلم أظفار الشر ويجعل للخير طريقا فيوجه المصلحة لحب الآخرين والتعايش معهم لا استعبادهم والسيطرة عليهم ، لان ذلك متناوب عليه بين الشعوب المتعاقبة ، وفي العربية نقول: "الأيام دول" أي يوم لك ويوم عليك ، أو تكون سيدا يوما ويوما آخر تكون دون سيادة وهذا ما يثبت أن البقاء ليس للأصلح وإنما البقاء للجميع من البشر إلى أجل مسمى ، أما البقاء السرمدي فهو ليس صفة من صفات البشر.

إشكاليات الحرية وروح القانون عند عرب اليوم

د. حسن عبدالقادر يحيى


تعتبر أزمة الحرية في المجتمعات التقليدية من أهم المواضيع الجدلية في الحياة الثقافية العربية اليوم . والأهم من ذلك، أن الخلاف الكبير بين الشرق والغرب  يدور جزء غير يسير منها حول إشكالية الحرية، ففي الغرب يعتبر الحل الإسلامي في جميع صوره وتنويعاته، معاد للحرية. مما يجعل الخلاف يأخذ أبعاداً مهمة بناء على ذلك التصور . خاصة عندما يصور البعض التغريب بوصفه سبيلاً يحتذى لممارسة الحرية، مما يشكل تهديدا للتراث العربي والإسلامي بوصفه عائقاً أمام ممارسة الحرية. وهذا التصور ، يفجر قضيةالحرية مقابل ما يسمى بالقهر الذي يوصف به التراث العربي والإسلامي لتسهيل الحرية بقالب غربي.

وبالنظر في الأمر فإن للحضارة الغربية دلالات متعددة تؤثر سلبا أو إيجابا في أي حضارة خارج وعبر الحدود ، بما فيها الحدود العربية  ، فهي ممارسة الفرد لحريته بعيدا عن الجماعة حسب  القوانين التي تسنها الدولة الفدرالية أو المحلية ، حيث إن لكل دولة الحق في وضع قوانينها بما يتناسب مع سكانها . بينما يرى الناس الحرية في العالم العربي ممارسة الجماعة للحرية بعيدا عن الفرد. ولكن الحرية في الغرب تمارس ضمن حدود مرسومة وليس حرية إباحية تقف ضد تلك الحدود أو القوانين . والناظر إلى العرب اليوم كحكومات وشعوب في الوقت الراهن ، لا يفقد الحكم على وصف العرب بأنهم منقسمون كأنظمة سياسية إلى فريقين متصادمين وكلاهما يبحث عن الحرية فلا يجدها ، وكلا الفريقين يقيس الحرية  بمقاييس مفصلة لهذه الأنظمة .  مما يصعب على المتنورين والعقلاء والنابهين من أبناء هذه الأنظمة البت والفعالية في بسط الحرية دون عقاب من الفريقين . وهذين الفريقين هما :  فريق فيه الشعوب عالة على حكوماتها ، وفريق فيه الحكومات عالة على شعوبها. 

وتضيع الحرية عند كل فريق منهما ، وتظهر إشكاليات لا بد من بيانها والخوض فيها ، لإصلاح ما فسد في كل منهما ، وهذا ينطبق على العالم العربي بكل نظمه السياسية . والمشكلة الرئيسية كما أراها لا تقبع في المقدس ولا في رفضه ، وإنما أصفها بشارع تم فتحه منذ القدم تعبره الأمم فزادت فيه الحفر الواسعة والمتعددة حتى أسبح بلا لون ولا استقامة ولا صلاحية للسي فيه مشيا أو في عربة على عجلات ، ولم يقم أحد بإصلاحه ، ولا بتنويره ولا برقعه ، فزادت الإشكاليات التي لا بد من النظر فيها وفهمها من أجل الحيلولة دون النوم عليها أو التعذر بعدم جدوى حلولها أو عدم مناسبتها لمجال الحرية . وهذه الإشكاليات هي :

الإشكالية الأولى في المجتمعات التقليدية . لذا فإن تعريف الحرية وفهم معناها يختلف في بلاد العرب عن معناها في بلاد الغرب. فالحرية المقدسة حسب المقدس من الأديان ليست مفهومة ولا مطبقة لا شرعا ولا قانونا في أكثر الأحيان، ويعتقد البعض أن الغرب وفهمه للحرية يريد إرغامنا على اتباعها ، ونحن (كعرب) لم نصل بعد إلى مستوى تطبيقها عبر القوانين لا الشرعية ولا الوضعية .   

والإشكالية الثانية نابعة من الإشكالية الأولى وهي الظن بأن الحرية في الغرب حرية مطلقة ، وأنها إباحية حتى ضد القوانين التي تتغير كلما ثار عليها الناس فألغوها وجاؤا بتغديل لها أو تغييرها نهائيا ، وهذه الإشكالية لا تخلو من الغموض ، حيث إن الجزء الأول غير صحيح فالحرية مقيدة حسب القوانين المرعية في دل دولة ، أما الجزء الثاني من الإشكالية ، وهي حرية التفيير أو التعديل فهي حقيقة يمارسها المواطن في حدود القانون ، وتوضع المشكلة غير المرضي عنها فتقدم في مشروع قانون للموافقة على التعديل أو التغيير من قبل المواطنين . وهذ الشق من الإشكالية حق من حقوق المواطنين ووجه من وجوه الحرية الذي لم يفهم من العرب معتقدين أن الحرية في الغرب مطلقة ، وبناء عليه لا يجوز تعديل القوانين تمثيلا لحرية المواطنين.

أما الإشكالية الثالثة ، فهي المبدأ الذي تقوم عليه الحرية وهو مغاير للأسس التي تقوم عليها الحرية في الوطن العربي . فالمبدأ الغربي لأساس الحرية هو اختراق حدود المقدسات بينما عند العرب فالمبدأ هو الاعتماد على هذه المقدسات التي هي خارج نطاق الحرية وليست محلا للتغيير . ومع أن الجزء الأول من الإشكالية قد يكون مبررا عند العرب ، إلا أن فهم الجزء الثاني منها يسبب مشكلة للحرية الجماعية والفردية على حد سواء . فالناس يتبعون عادات وتقاليد عفى عليها الزمن واكتست شرعية عبر عصور الجهل والتخلف ، مما يستدعي النظر فيها وإعادة صياغتها لتتناسب مع العصر الحديث ومصالح الناس . خذ مثلا الجهل في كثير من الأمور هو السيد المطاع أساسا وسلوكا  والمثل على ذلك قتل المرأة الزانية وقطع الأوصال للمجرمين والسارقين ورجم الزناة . واعتبار الولد مفخرة للآباء تغطي على وضع البنت في الأسرة . وتصبح المسألة عند الجهلاء أنها تحد للقانون مع أنها تحترم القانون وتحاول تعديل ما جاء به من جهل تصور التطبيق  له. واعتبار المقدس نظرية وسلوكا لا يحتاجان تعديلا أو تغييرا. فالعقاب للخارجين عن القانون في الغرب هو العقاب للخارجين عن القانون في الشرق . ولكن التطبيق لمفاهيم بالية تأخذ صفة القانون بين الجاهلين يعتبر إشكالية كبرى في فهم الحرية . فالمقدسات أمر هام  ولكن تصور الناس في تقديسها وتطبيق بعض أحكامها مما يتنافى مع الحقوق المشروعة للفرد يشكل خلافا كبيرا يدعو إلى التساءل.

الإشكالية الرابعة للحرية هي تطبيق القوانين السرمدية من سلطات لا تتسم بالعدل في تطبيقها ، وكأن القانون شيء وتطبيقه شيء آخر ، والتفرقة في التطبيق بين الناس لا تجعل للقانون معنى ، مما يتسبب بما لا يتناسب مع المشكلات الحديثة التي تتصل بالفساد الحكومي والتقاعس عن تطبيق العدالة من خلال القوانين في الثورة على الفساد مثلا ضد من يجير القوانين لمصالحهم الخاصة بدلا من العدالة في التطبيق والمساواة أمام القانون . فالطبقية والرشاوي والمعارف والعلاقات الظاهرة والخافية تطغى على القانون في كثير من البلاد العربية ،  فيصبح القانون شماعة للملابس القذرة يعلق عليها الفاسدون والمنحرفون عن عدالة تطبيق القانون ملابسهم القذرة دون رادع أو ضمير حي . وهذه إشكالية تستدعي من الشعب ممثلا بالمثقفين المسلحين بالعلم والنباهة أن يعملوا على تغييرها ، فإذا فعلوا نظرا لأن القوانين تتسنم مكانة قدسية عند الحكومات ، فإن تلك الحكومات تتصرف بأسلوب غير حضاري معهم عن طريق استعمال وسائل قمعية دون إعطائهم فرصة للدفاع وتبيان الحقائق حول القوانين المذبوحة وضياع عدالة وضعها ، فيستخدمون رجال البوليس وأزلام السلطة لمنعهم من التعبير عن سخطهم حول أخطاء يسببها عدم تطبيق القانون أساسا وروحا . كما تقوم الحكومات بإغلاق منابرهم والزج برؤسائهم في السجون دون محاكمات أو محاكمات شكلية لإرضاء العوام وذر الرماد في العيون . وتبقى العدالة وروح القانون في غيبوبة ، حتى يكون مزاج القائمين على سن القوانين مرتاحا ، فيقومون بتغيير بعض الوجوه ، وليس بعض القوانين التي تعتمد في أصولها على العدالة العالمية . ويبقى الحال على ما هو عليه بل أسوأ حالا فتسود الفوضى ويتجه الشباب إلى العنف كوسيلة سهلة للشكوى التي لا تجد حلولا عقلية لامتصاص غضبها وسماع أقوالها والعمل على تغيير عوامل أسبابها . 

أما الإشكالية الخامسة في فهم الحرية فهي معنية بمشرعي القانون أساسا ، فمعظم القوانين العربية أما لا توجد أساسا خارج نظاق القبيلة ، أو أنها مستوردة من الغرب. لذا فهي ليست مقدسة ولا تمثل دينا ولا شريعة ولا عقيدة ، فطبقات الشعب ليست موحدة من حيث الأديان والمستوى التعليمي والإقتصادي والسياسي ، وإن استمدت بعض أحكامها من الشريعة في بعض البلدان فهي تتناسى ما لمواطنة من حقوق وواجبات ، فينتشر الظلم في التفرقة كنتيجة في تطبيق القوانين التي تجور أحيانا على بعض الأقليات فتخرجهم من الملة ومن المواطنة وتجعلهم غرباء في أوطانهم  باسم القانون الذي وضع أساسا لإقامة العدل والمساواة في التطبيق .  وهذه الإشكالية لها أهمية خاصة ، لأن تصور الخروج على عملية تطبيق القوانين إنما هي دعوة لتغليب القوانين الغربية على القوانين التراثية مع أن القوانين التراثية لم تعد صالحة للبت في قضايا الشعوب مع غياب العدالة والتطبيق لتلك القضايا. والمسألة حسب المثقفين والنابهين من أبناء البلد في كل بلد ليس القوانين التراثية المقدسة بل ما تناثر منها فأصبح قاعدة للتطبيق للقوانين المستوردة . وهذا أمر لا يجب السكوت عليه. وخذ مثلا الفقر العام بين طبقات الشعب وتفاوت الطبقات والتمييز بين العائلات والمراكز القبلية والعسكرية وفقدان العدالة والمساواة كأساس لحفظ موارد الشعوب للشعوب ، وزيادة أعداد الأميين وقلة فرص العمل ، كلها عوامل تساهم في فهم الحرية عند العرب وغيرهم من البلدان المتخلفة .

 وفي الختام ، أرى أن قهر الشعوب لا يدوم ، وإن الفهم لمسببات هذه الإشكاليات أمر ميسر ، وحلها أكثر يسرا ، وأن طرقا ومناهج إنسانية وعقلية  لفهم أسباب  الشكاوى  وطرق حلها بما يتناسب مع حجمها في فئات الشعوب المتطلعة إلى العدالة لا يتعارض مع الحرية في شيء ولا ينال من المقدسات في شيء ، ولعل المجانين من أبناء الشعب أو الذين يتهمون بالجنون فيهم من يجد الحلول لحرية الشعب على مستوى الأفراد والمجموعات . وهذا أمر لا يدخل فيه الغرب طرفا ، لا أوروبا ولا الولايات المتحدة ، ولا غيرها له دخل في موضوع الحرية التي تذبح كل لحظة في بلاد العرب ، فدعوا الغرب في مشاكله التي تختلف اختلافا جوهريا عما عندكم يا عرب ، واهتموا بمشاكلكم وابنوا الحلول لتلك الحرية على أساس العدل والمساواة وهما الأكثر تقديسا من كل شريعة  تنادي بها ولا تطبقها بين تابعيها. وسيبقى الفريقان اللذان ذطرتهما غي بداية المقال هو الحال لسنين قادمة ما لم تتح الفرصة للإصلاحيين العقلاء المؤمنين المتنورين بالحرية مبدأ  وروحا .

Sweet Natasha: Short Love Story

Hasan Yahya, Ph.Ds

I was forty years old, far away from home in other country. Doing business with the government.  I never expected that autumn may meet with spring. She was twenty years old when I met her. I found her in the kitchen, immediately after entering the villa. She was cleaning dishes and singing with a low voice. I waited until she finished, she was preoccupied in her singing. Suddenly she turned her head and saw me standing three meters from her.

- “My name is John” I said. She bring a towel, and dried her hands.

- “I am Tasha. I mean, Natasha,” She said permitting her right hand to reach mine.

- “Nice to know you Tasha, I mean Natasha.” With no specific impression other than business like impression, when we meet someone for the first time.

- “Same here, Mr. John!” she said with a smile. 

- “What are you ding?” as if I did not know what she was doing. I know she was singing while working on dishes.

- “Well, I already finished.” She then asked,

- “Are you the new tenant? Dr. John. “

- “Oh! You know about me then?”

- “Yes, my dad told us yesterday about you and your company.”

- “What did he told you?” As if something I did not know.

- “Not much. But he mention your name as Dr. John, came to rent the villa.”

- “That’s true!” and like to listen to her fancy voice, going out of her small mouth, through her beautiful tiny lips. “go on, tell me more.” I said.

She offered me to go to the living room, so we continue talking.

Natasha was the owner’s daughter. She saw me on TV last night signing a contract with the government, about herself. She has one sister, works for the social services. She quit school after ninth grade. But continued her high school from home. She used to make the tests at the school in summertime. Her hair was long goes back on her white delicate neck, her eyes can tell you how dear and innocent she was, her dress was mixed with brown and gray lines. She looks healthy, enthusiastic, with her red cheeks. I saw her as an angel, talking prayers. Her smile never left her face.

I never expected that autumn may meet with spring, unless there is a miracle. But the miracle has happened. I did not stress hard to happen. She offered her services to take care of the villa while I am working or staying in. She in fact lived in the villa as if I was not there. She used to have her own room, at the end of the corridor.

I used to stay two weeks, at the villa in that country, and then coming back to America to see my family,  wife and children for two weeks or three, then go back to Natasha.  In my first trip back, to the USA, I spent one night in Frankfort, I had the urge to ask  about Natasha, but I did not try to do that, she came several times cross my mind, it was a delighted feeling to have her in the same place.

Six months passed, every time I came back from the USA, I brought a small gift for Natasha, we embrace and kissed each other on the cheek. I did not ask for gift return. She was in my daughter’s age. My feeling toward her was not more than a fatherhood sympathy. We both did not pass the line for expectations more than what it looks. My age is a little more double than hers. So I was serious not to have any sexual relations with her. But days passed, I offered her a job for the company and public relations, that implies to stay at the villa longer times than before. I began to know her better, what she likes, what she hates, and we became acquainted strongly. One day we went together shopping, in the City vegetable market, she was expert in dealing and trading. She always picks the best, and asks me, how do like it? My answer always was, “What”, and she used to laugh after hearing the word. That night, after she cooked, and we dine together, she began to tell me about her love  life. She was in love with someone, but he left the town far away, but he got married. and she was left alone. I show my sympathy by hugging her, saying, “poor, Natasha,”


That Night! Natasha wept, her tears were a wailing tree under rain. Later, she drew herself to her room. I did not find it would proper to follow her, so I watched TV program about skiing sports broadcasted from Italy. That night, the weather was rough, rain began to fall heavily, and the thunders were unbearable, the villa walls and doors were shaking. After midnight, I left my bed to the living room, went to the refrigerator to have something cold, and returned back to the living room, put my legs on chair,  Few minutes passed, I heard foot steps in the hall, she was Natasha, Looked at me, I immediately said:

- “Hay, how are you now? Hope you are well.”

- “I am better now, but the weather still angry.” Something came to my mind to say good word for her, so I said:

- “The weather is sharing you your sorrow in love, it’s sharing your eyes.” She came and sat beside me, she began to tell me why people dessert other people? In her case, the one who was in love with her left her. I said something about psychology, that people do not like to be left alone in a far away land, if you are away by distance, then you are faraway by heart, they say.

- “I need someone to love me, and keep me happy all time. I want to live with him, no matter how old or young he is. I don’t care. I wanted to be happy.” Her courageous attitude frightened me at the beginning, then I asked her, what she means by, I don’t care no matter how old? She said:

- “I don’t know, I think I feel disparate these days, I don’t have anything to live for.” It seemed to me as if she has symptoms of loneliness, fear  and despair, I offered my knowledge in these circumstances about psychology, I used the word “Change” to forget. We spent most of the night talking over the same topic, I understood from her, that she would not mind to love me. I was good with her, brought her gifts, and supported her at work, enjoyed couple trips in the mountains. And she’s twenty years old, and have good friendship with me.


I Left the next day to Italy  and arrange for Natasha to accompany me. She was delighted. We spent two nights as tourists, we visited too many places, I finished business and took dinner with Natasha the next day. Before we went back to our rooms, she suggested that she feels lonely and she would like to come to my room. I did not argue too much, with no idea in my mind may cross the norms in terms of my double age of Natasha’s. We sat in the balcony before midnight, talking about my family, my wife, and kids. She memorized all their names.

- “Do you mind if I sleep with you” suddenly she said.  I asked if she means, sleeping, sleeping, or having sex with me. She was very  happy, with her wonderful pinky dress, I bought her in the afternoon, she said:

- “You have done too many good things for me,” then she came close to me, I felt her breath and smelled her killing perfume, and continued to say whispering to my ear. “ Won’t you mind to have something back? I have the urge to sleep, sleep with you.”

First Time Dating – I      Published on articlesbase

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds


What questions pup up in your mind: What should I do in the first Date? In psychology we learn that, if you were a boy or girl then your answer will vary drastically, girls look inside to themselves , boys, however, look for outside themselves for answers.

Psychology tells us that certain variables determine the answers. For example, age, sex, race, religion, marital status, education, wealth, etc., While most first dates come early in high schools, we will answer the question through that age, which is roughly between 12 and 18. In America, teenagers learn about dating from friends, media,  and by reading about it. They have answers according to their knowledge. But really, what should I wear, pups-up in the minds of girls, in other words, how I look, or should I look in the first date? But this is not the proper question to ask. A self control, and self conscious girl, may ask other questions about perfume, dress, but what you need to ask in the first date is: Do I know my partner?

This question makes you prepare certain question to know more about the guy or girl. Statement  like: tell me about your self, what you like, and how do feel? Something like that. The purpose of course is to know more about your partner, but if you know him for more than three months, and you know him very well, because he’s or she’s in you school, or your class, or your neighborhood, your questions should be about something else. For example, how generous I should be, how much permissive I should be dealing with certain questions about sex? About your secrets, which you want to keep for yourself. You don’t know whether the date will be successful or not. 

Suppose talking about oneself in the first date, you have to be a good listener, and alert to follow up with questions about certain words, or feelings. Some interesting points, like, how is that? Why do you think so? Or I like this, say it again. Laugh on his jokes, but not to show that you are making laughs out of contest. 

A boy or a girl likes to show kindness, concern to please each other, and both will be conservatives in their behavior, especially showing their bad qualities. So advice to both girls and boys in their first date can be suggested here:

1.         Imagine what you like, but never give bad comments about your partner’s behavior. Keep bad comments to yourself for later times.

2.         Don’t ask too much questions, and know your limitations. For example, on the dinner table, don’t look in the Menu for the most expensive items to test his generosity. So, the proper behavior is give  him or her the option to choose for both.

3.         Don’t act your behavior. In other words, don’t pretend that you are miss perfect. Show normality even if your partner is charming, and you feel positively strong emotions toward him or her.

4.         Real emotions may be told and show mutual respect. Because it will remembered life long.

5.         Pay your share (you and her or him) so you will not loose control of the situation. Males usually insist to pay.

6.         If he refused and insist, you will know of his personality and will know who will be the boss for years to come, If the consequences of the first date were right.

7.         A kiss at the end of the date, which girls expect as a farewell moment, should be short one.

The question which is often not asked from girls is, what are the expectations or the consequences of the first time dating? The answer for this question will be the subject of next article.  Happy dating time, folks. (642 words) www.hasanyahya.com

God Speaks Urdu?

Published on wfol and articlesbase

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds


What language God speaks? When we imagine the languages God knows, we immediately imagine a large number of dictionaries displayed in a huge library, millions of books in all languages, even dictionaries for sign languages, animal languages, and wind and ocean languages. Angels carry computers, books, and typewriters to perform their job.

The question was asked by my seven years old daughter, makes me confused how to answer the question.

My surprise was great, but makes me think of the answer, which I don’t know about. I remember that this question came to me when I was thirteen, but I dare not to ask my Dad about it. I was afraid of physical and emotional punishment.

I thought of Urdu Language to be the answer. Because Urdu is a Central Indo-Aryan language covers a large communities worldwide, and one of the Indo-European family of languages, the national language and one of the two official languages beside English of Pakistan. It is also one of the 22 scheduled languages of India. One more thing about Urdu, is that its vocabulary developed under Sanskrit, Persian, Arabic and Turkic. But my daughter will ask more questions, I do not need.

And now, here it is. The same question was asked by my daughter in her first grade. What would you answer, if your son or daughter or niece ask you the question? How do you react, while showing your ignorance. Teachers in schools, mostly face this kind of amazing and difficult questions, but they have their answers ready. It’s not my area, they may say, or later you may know the answer, when you get old enough. Or a third category may say, I don’t know.

Languages come to your mind if you face the question, such as Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, English, German, French, Armenian, Swedish, etc.,  but non of them save self defeat and embarrassment. You can’t tell the right answer. Simply, because you don’t know for sure! And you will find that you are ignorant in this area.

So my response was after a long pose of thinking, while my daughter was waiting for the answer, believing that I knew it. All what I came up with was, to redirect the question and return  it backwards  to my daughter. I said: what language do you think God speaks?

If you face the question as a reader, what would be better answer than the magic answer: I don’t know. A seven years, first grade boy or girl does not need philosophy. I know or I did not know is simple answer. Otherwise, change the question or the topic immediately, and come up with a counter question like: let’s go out and have Ice cream. Otherwise, it easy to say:  God Speaks Urdu!  (587 words) www.hasanyahya.com

Early Islamic Methodology Through al-Bukhari - 1

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds

 “The strong tendency of contemporary society has been to minimize the importance of religion, and to treat it as a matter of superstition which has no place in the enlightened thinking of modern civilized man.” This tendency, whether it is relatively true or not, is one of several difficulties that face researchers and investigators of religious topics. Other difficulty is the way we deal with such topics. We mean by this the method we apply to study these topics subjectively or objectively. While some scholars justifies using both approaches, each has its biases and errors which stem from researchers’ ideologies and credibility, in addition to time and scholarship factors. But questions might be raised, such as, can we construct religious research with the least possible error? And who will suppose to conduct that research—the religious people or the scientists? In other words, the traditional or the nontraditional? If we try to answer these questions and support each of them, we hardly escape critics of supporters of each view. This, in our opinion, is not the way to find an agreement among advocates of both toward solid acceptable view. Researchers and scientists, we believe, agree that both views lack exhaustiveness in nature, and that what suits research methodology in one of them is not necessarily suit the other, and that also has its own credibility and characteristics. To escape subjectivity approach, this paper will not discuss the content of Hadith, instead, it will discuss the “How” al-Bukhari synthesized his “Sahih” genuine? Why Hadith was not written in the form as al-Bukhari did? Why we chose al-Bukhari for this study? And lastly, is his methodology scientific in the sense of contemporary research measures? Discussion will not be systematically handled.

Hadith Writing: Traditional leaders of faith were divided into two main directions concerning writing Hadith. One direction was supporting, while the other was opposing. Each view has its sold rule which stems from the Prophet’s(PBUH) sayings. This did not necessarily mean that Hadith or some Hadith was not written in the early years of Islam, or that oral Hadith was the only authority. By the passage of time, circumstances have been changed, and traditionalists feel that oral Hadith began to lose its popularity for political, religious, and social reasons. The need to protect Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) was raised as a priority and demand to face spurious and false hadiths. The unity of faith interpretation was acquired traditionists by all means to collect and writing down Hadith or what remains of it in the memories of the authentic people, in addition to Qur’an commentaries and interpretations.

New methods were set up in this regard for reproducing the Sunnah in most authentic manner to serve the Muslim society “the Ummah of Islam” and to distinguish reliable and authentic traditions from inference ones. Al-Bukhari was the landmark in this field. His work was honored and was highly respected. His book “Sahih” is the fruition of the traditionists’ efforts in the third century of al-Hijrah.

Early Islamic Methodology Through al-Bukhari - 2

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds

Hadith Methodology and science: Was Islamic methodology in general and Hadith in particular scientific in the contemporary research measures? To answer this question without considering time, place, and subject matter factors is arbitrary and unfair in comparative analysis. We can confidently say that the Islamic methodology was not exhaustive in nature, and that it has its own characteristics and concepts which distinguish that methodology from others. This, of course, does not mean the opposite of what is known about contemporary methodology. But it simply means—to judge fairly—that contemporary research measures are invalid to judge other methodology used one thousand years ago. Inaccuracy of these measures stems from time, place, subject matter and accumulative knowledge available for these methodologies. In the study of religion, in general, and Hadith (in our case) in particular, involves a broad framework of theoretical propositions at any given stage of its development. Religious studies tended to be under two categories, normative and positivistic thinking. The first relies on subjectivity, while the second relies on reason analysis of results or what as rationalistic approach.

Parsons, for instance, justifies using both approaches in religious research. It will be hard and inaccurate to judge Islamic methodology regarding these approaches for the above mentioned reasons. To serve the argument whether Islamic methodology is scientific or not is to define science. Science is described as “a way of generating data and testing the truth of statements about events in the world of human experience.”

Science has two aspects, one is a body of useful and practical knowledge and a method of obtaining it. Scientists almost emphasize and agree that science is the method of collecting data, and that every scholar has to choose the method which suits her/his study. By analogy we say that a method applied in one’s research in a specific time and place might not be applicable in other’s research. From this discussion we might deduce supportive conclusion to the view that early Islamic methodology is scientific in the sense of collecting data methods used by Muslim scholars as al-Bukhari. Al-Bukhari was one of the leading Imams who represented the finalstage of the Hadith collection. The other stages are:

The companions of the Prophet (PBUH), or Ahab al-Suffah of Madina Mosque, such as Abu Hurayrah, Jabir b. Abdullah, the Mother of Faithful A’ishah, Umar, Ali, Sa’ad b. ‘Ubadah, and Abdullah b. Abbas, and many others.

After the death of the Prophet (PBUH), the Qur’an was the method of decisions, and the Prophet’s (PBUH) saying which obtained wide reputation publicly.

Hadith restored to different public centers, and writing Hadith became common. The collection of Hadith by Imam Malik, Imam Hanbal and others became known.

The stage was the permanent shape, and came to have the forms of Masanid (Authorities) musannafat (classifications) according to topics.

Here, where al-Bukhari belongs, we find that the traditions were collected together, the Sihah-Sittah, (The six Authentic books) are the most authentic collection representing this stage.

In his methodology al-Bukhari was reliable and authentic in collecting data in an age where people lie and falsify hadith for several reasons. It was a challenge to proof the truth. This challenge dictated and supported the method of research which will be discussed thoroughly in the following pages. (556   words) – www.hasanyahya.com


Early Islamic Methodology Through al-Bukhari- 3

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds

Al-Bukhari and his Methodology: In this section we will discuss why al-Bukhari was chosen for this study, and what was his methodology of Hadith collection, and finally, why he was considered as a pioneer in this field, and what was the impact of his work on other scholars during and after his time? With the fact that complete knowledge does not exist in man, al-Bukhari applied what he thought, the accurate measurement of obtaining solid information to be reserved in a written form against fabrication, which was the phenomenon of the time. Logically, his work will be a reflection of spurious fabricated Hadith, or a solid reaction against falsification in his period of time. The first option was and is unthinkable, for one reason that Muslim scholars and the public consider his work as the most genuine book after Qur’an, and the most ancient and authoritative collection. Most scholars and historians consider also, the third century as the golden age for Hadith science (figure1.) It was the shift from the four Imams of jurisprudence, and their methodology of interpreting Qur’an and Hadith, to a new treatment of collecting what the Prophet (PBUH) had said and did in his life.

Al-Bukhari was an encyclopediac pious man. He spent most of his life studying or traveling for the sake of knowledge. He has a strict criteria to judge people and documents. He was enslaved to that strict methodology and neglected many genuine traditions simply because these traditions failed to commensurate with his conditions and evaluation. For his criteria, he was and still is highly respected by Muslims in all times and places. Al-Bukhari was the first to apply what we can confidently describe as scientific investigation with the least possible error. Concerning definition of methodology which is a system of explicit rules and procedures upon which research is based and against claims for knowledge are granted. Al-Bukhari applied research methods such as historical, comparative, and field research methods under a system of strict rules and procedures. What was important in this case was the impact of these methods on other scholars who used some of his conditions and methods to accept accurate data in recent years. Al-Bukhari has authored many books inhistory, culture, and Qur’anic commentaries. His works have been crowned by his famous “Sahih.”

Another impact of his methodology was mirrored in hundreds of exegeses which exceeds 25 volumes by later scholars such as Ibn Hajar (d. 852), Qastallani (d. 923), and others. (505   words) – www.hasanyahya.com

Early Islamic Methodology Through al-Bukhari - 4

Hasan A. Yahya, Ph.Ds

Methodology Assumptions:  The tendency of al-Bukhari’s work was “to compile a manual of Hadith according to the wishes of his shaikh Ishaq b. Rahawayh.” This was the authority to begin a long journey to look for viable and reliable content to his manual. We will cite an assumptionfor his methodology and theoretical propositions to see how al-Bukhari compiled his manual or how, if we put ourselves in his shoes, how he dealth with theoretical and methodological problems. His research proposition, we assume, will be as follows:

Proposition 1. Authentic narrators give authentic Isnad ( chain of transmitters) and Matn (the words of Hadith).

Proposition 2. Authenticity of both Isnad and Matn results authentic Hadith.

These two assumptions need to be tested in order to prove their reality or their truth. To do so, we have to have hypotheses to test on the ground of these propositions. Before doing so, we have to point out the variables used in the above propositions. The independent variable will be the authenticity of narrators, while authenticity of Hadith (Isnad and Matn) will be the dependent variable. These variables to be tested we compile the following two hypotheses:

Hypothesis 1. There is positive relationship between authenticity of narrators and authenticity of Hadith (Isnad and Matn).

Hypothesis 2. There is positive relationship between disauthenticity and Hadith falsification.

Insofar, we have propositions, variables, and hypotheses. What we need is to assume how al-Bukhari tested his hypotheses, or how has he collected data for his study? Figure 2. Gives both dependent as well as independent variables, To illustrate, suppose he wants to collect Hadith. This means, of course, to contact narrators of Isnad and Matn. Neither Isnad nor authenticity alone norauthenticity of Matn alone makes Hadith acceptable under the conditionsof al-Bukhari. He has prove authenticity of both in order to accept and edit Hadith in his “Sahih.” To prove Isnad he has to examine two sources: men and available history materials. Regarding the first, he has to ask people about the narrators, their students, and their shaikhs, about their reputation, their behavior, and their authenticity (Thiqah), then he will ask these men or women themselves about many items as if he has a questionnaire. Some of these items are constructed (see table 1.) to cover the narrator’s personal, professional, and public life. Such items as the name of the narrator, his father’s and mother’s name, his grandfather’s name, his nickname, and his tribe, his teachers and disciples, his sample of narrations and titles. In additionm he asks about his creed, journeys he made, when, why, and who were the scholars he has met, and what proof he has. These information were used to prove Isnad’s authenticity. The process was the same for any other informant. Otherwise, his or her Isnad will not be acceptable, and no need to check the Matn. (487 words) – www.hasanyahya.com

* This narrator Identification Card as projected and collected by the writer from al-Bukhari methodology and several sources cited in the bibliography.

If al-Bukhari is convinced by the evidence that Isnad was authentic, we assume that he would turn to the matn to examine its authenticity. The main criteria he has, the Qur’an, Hadith, and Reason if Hadith was not in contradiction with Qur’an, it will be accepted primarily, but that was not enough. We assume for more tests that he will turn to examine the matn’s content. (325 words) – www.hasanyahya.com

* For more of these concepts, see Ibn Hajar (d. 852), he classified 12 levels of narrators.

Comparing it with another Hadith, if available, and if it was not, he will examine the content linguistically, culturally, and historically. If these tests support positively the authenticity of the Matn, without contradiction, it will be accepted as genuine. Al-Bukhari was fair enough to say why he accepted or rejected some Hadiths. He has his own technical terminology for Hadith and Musnids. (Tables 2 and 3)

Criticism and Conclusion: Several claims of Muslim and non-Muslim scholars were made about Hadith in general and al-Bukhari in particular. Despite the fact that Hadith was written in several stages of traditional development Schacht who was in conformity with Goldzihar work, followed Necholson and claimed that Hadith was invented in the second century without checking new developments and discoveries in the field. Schacht also claimed that HadithMatn in some points was contradictory to Qur’an. This claim in essentially violates the rules of collecting Hadith, which clearly emphsize that no reported saying or action of the Prophet (PBUH) is accepted as authentic and reliable (aadel) unless it was in conformity with the letter and spirit of Qur’an. Muslim scholars criticized al-Bukhari’s work, this critic was to about 80 narrators and some 100 Hadiths. The criticism showed that these Hadiths and narrators did measure up to the standard of his conditions.

The criticism showed that these Hadiths and narrators did measure up to the standard of his conditions.

Al-Bukhari’s work was not mutually exclusive. He described his work as manual, but what was not included from Hadith in his book “Sahih” does not mean that it was not authentic. This was emphasized by al-Bukhari himself. If al-Bukhari committed errors in his methodology, these errors would not defame his great work. Instead, they called reasons (‘aql) to examine these errors carefully and objectively side by side with concrete unchangeable beliefs toward the truth of Islamic legacy through the Prophet’s (PBUH) sayings and actions.

In conclusion, the honor for al-Bukhari’s work stems from the honor of his subject matter, which might draw what is called an “error”of respect in contemporary research methods. This “error” of respect actually did not prevent al-Bukhari from rejecting many hadiths for a simple reason, such as a missing member in the chain of narrators, or lack of historical connection between narrators and their place of origin, etc., In our judgment, if the error of respect was true in al-Bukhari’s case, in research conceptualization, we might see thousands of Hadiths, not only 2,602 Hadiths, which are ncluded in his Sahih, and which only consists of a small proportion of less than 2 percent of what he has memorized. May Allah reward him for his great work as well as us, (377  words) – www.hasanyahya.com
