Islamic Prayer

60644_359189224170952_1862302634_n While transcribing an interview for my Islam in America final project on Islamic prayer I encountered a very beautiful phrase.

“Let me give you something else, consider when God created the Sun to shine on the earth. During the night we think the Sun has disappeared. However, in reality the Sun produces light continuously since the day it was created. Exactly as it is with the Sun it is with the word of God. The minute God created Adam, God’s word shone on humanity continuously. Prophet Muhammad was the last person to keep the word of God shining 24 hours a day.”

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
