Islam via “find” – Mercy

Leave a comment

If you follow my blog, you know I’m studying the Quran that I downloaded onto my computer via Google Chrome “find”.  It’s my own primitive content-analysis so to speak.

But others have done it before me. Excellent Link Here

In one of the Odin content analysis, “Mercy” was a word that appears more in the Quran than the Bible.

Just taking a single word, is not really enlightening.

In my “find” analysis, “Mercy” seems to be an aspect of God – and is not offered to followers as the way they should behave. God’s “Mercy” is their reward for good behaviour – so the fact that “Mercy” appears in the Quran more times than The Bible (140 times) means ziltch.

But “Charity” appears 38 times and it really does mean “Charity”!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
