Stoicism: A Guide in Modern Society to Life Long Habits of Self Discipline, Self-Control, and Mental Toughness<br /><br /><br />There are many hidden gems in history that if uncovered, could unleash so much physical and intellectual wealth, which we need to restore our society back to glory, in the midst of the transformative changes brought by modernism. The Stoic philosophy is one such gem. It is an ancient philosophy developed to make people happy.<br />Many times, people seek happiness in the wrong activities, the wrong people and in the wrong things. The majority focuses on achievement so much that they forfeit the joy of the moment. Others are passive bystanders, and they derive a sense of satisfaction from criticizing and talking about other people. This book addresses both groups. The bystanders are advised to focus on their issues with the promise that an inward look and the development of virtue will bring you the most success. The overachievers are also advised to take a moment and relax, focus less on achievement and take the time to appreciate their surroundings.<br />This book provides a comprehensive discussion of all that relates to stoicism. It sets the foundation that stoicism was developed based on ethics, physics, and logic. The book also lists a number of philosophers that have been instrumental in the shaping and making of this philosophy including Seneca the Younger, Cato the Younger, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus. These wise minds helped to challenge, question, approve and even develop the Stoic philosophy.<br />You will also find therein, a comprehensive description of the Stoic disciplines, including desire, action, and assent. The discipline of desire is based on an understanding of physics, which explains how the world works. The discipline of assent advocates for the application of logic to daily living while the discipline of action advocates for the application of ethics to daily living. These three disciplines are the basis for the Stoic virtues, which are wisdom, courage, justice, and temperance. Upon these virtues is a list of principles enumerated in the book that when practiced, will lead you to live the happiest life possible.<br />Included also is a schedule listing of activities that you can do every day, from the morning throughout the day, and in the evening, to aid the uptake of this esteemed philosophy. If philosophy has stood its ground since the third decade, it surely is worthy of you trying out and practicing, especially because it is meant to ensure that you live a happy fulfilled life.<br />Inside this book you will find:<br />•The most detailed explanation of the Stoicism philosophy<br />•A comprehensive list of the philosophers and scholars that have helped shape Stoicism<br />•A complete description of the Stoic disciplines<br />•The most informative description of the virtues of Stoicism<br />•A wholesome analysis of ways in which the three disciplines are applied in daily living <br />•A precise description of the need and the uses of logic in the activities you undertake every day. <br />•A detailed description of some practices you can take up once you understand various principles developed by different Stoic philosophers in the past<br />•An ordered schedule listing giving you a schedule of activities to do to practice stoicism<br /><br />

Prophet Adam is believed to have been the first human being and (Prophet) on Earth, in Islam. Adam's role as the father of the human race is looked upon by Muslims with reverence. Muslims also refer to his wife, Hawa (Eve), as the "mother of mankind". Muslims see Prophet Adam as the first Muslim, as the Qur'an states that all the Prophets preached the same faith of Islam (Submission to One God).<br /><br />The Qur'an and hadith give the same account of the creation of Adam and Eve. Synthesizing the Qur'an with Sunni hadith can produce the following account. According to the Qur'an, when Allah (God) informed the angels that he was going to put a successor on Earth, they questioned whether the human would cause blood shed and damage, but he told them that he knew what they did not. He created Adam from clay and breathed life into him. Hadith add that he was named Adam after the clay he was made out of, or the skin (adim) of the earth. Returning to the Qur'an, when God asked all the angels to prostrate before Adam, they all obeyed, except Iblis (Lucifer). He said, "I am made from fire, when Adam is from clay. I am better than him. I am not going to prostrate before him."<br /><br />Sunni hadith say that while Adam was sleeping, God took a rib from him and from it he created Eve (Hawa); however, while the creation of Adam and Eve is referred to in the Qur'an, the exact method of creation is not specified. The Qur'an then says that God commanded that Adam and Eve not eat from one tree in the garden of Eden, but Iblis (Lucifer) was able to convince them to taste it. They then began to cover themselves because they now knew that they were naked. For this, God banished Adam and Eve to earth; non-canonical Sunni hadith say that fruits were turned to thorns and pregnancy became dangerous. Non-canonical Sunni hadith also say that Adam and Eve were cast down far apart, so that they had to search for each other and eventually met each other at Mount Arafat.<br /><br />In Islamic theology, it is not believed that Adam's sin is carried by all of his children. Hadith say that once Prophet Adam was on earth, God taught him how to plant seeds and bake bread. This was to become the way of all of Adam's children, Prophet Adam proceeded to live for about 1000 years.
