'Emotion in the Qur'an: An Overview'
by Karen Bauer., Journal of Qur'anic Studies 19.2 (2017), 1-31.
That is an interesting publication . the work is directly related to ROGUES USING EMOTIONAL BLACK MAIL and acting as medicine man/woman and giving some sort of psychotherapy using so-called religious books/literature /faith sayings to psychotic patients..........
Incidentally this emotional black mail is present throughout the animal kingdom so humans are no exception to that rule., My dog thinks that I am an idiot ., OFTEN USES POUTING TECHNIQUES/EXPRESSIONS... so i will do what it wants me to do such taking him to walk or giving a treat ... and some times I do give in
Anyways Karen Bauer starts that publication with these words
Despite a huge surge in interest and production in the field of Quranic studies, very little has been said about emotion in the Quran. While some authors have commented on the texts emotive power,and entries in the Encyclopedia of the Qurān include certain prominent emotions such as love fear and joy and misery to my knowledge nobody has undertaken a study of emotions as such..............
I certainly agree with her on that and I would like to add to such publications .. "ONE WILL FIND SIMILAR EMOTIONS (( such as love fear and joy and misery etc..etc...)) in every faith and their books or in their stories .. Quran is not telling something new which was not their before its birth as book "
We must note here that one can find such priests, preachers, mullahs, imams or own family members even today using that "EMOTIONAL BLACK MAILS " for various purposes . Some to brain wash.. some to take your money and some to hit you below the belt ..lol.. that is all in the name of allah/god and is there in every religion/faith/whatever .
And My good friends (("THE PREACHERS , MULLAHS & IMAMS")) I want to tell you that those fucking days are over .,
One of interesting fact here is, if we carefully observe animal species we will find such emotional black mails., The only difference between human being and animals is "WE LEARN SUCH BLACK MAILING TECHNIQUES IN BOOKS/IN SCHOOLS AND FROM THE SOCIETY AROUND US" .. where as the animals learns mostly from their parents/playmates and siblings
So let me read the Karen Bauer publication....
