Ok. I knew that as a common Christian term. So, I was thinking.. what would be a good answer to that. I wanted to reply, "The Lord is my shepherd too, but my Lord is not Jesus, my Lord is One". But I thought that sounded a teeny weeny bit sarcastic, not very nice.
I wanted to think of a nicer, better answer, but then, I was also trying to think of what word to put next on scrabble, so I answered, ' :) Muslim.'
And then, he/she went, 'oooooooooo'. I didn't count the exact number of 'o's but i think it was about that long. Perhaps he/she has never known or come in direct contact with any Muslim before. Perhaps.
Then he/she went on to tell me that he/she's from Sacramento. He/she asked where I'm from, so I told him/her. I was actually in a rush to finish the game, because I WAS
The game finished soon after (and I won), and I said, 'good game, thanks. I'm late for work!' and logged off.
Now I'm thinking, it would have been interesting, to let him/her tell me about her beliefs and I'll tell him/her about mine.
Maybe I'll try to look out for him/her, next time I'm on scrabulous. But shoots.. I vaguely remember his/her nickname.
I hope I see him/her again, maybe I'll recognise the nick.
Maybe next time I can explain to him/her about My Lord.
He is the One God;
God the Eternal, the Absolute;
He begets not, and neither is He begotten;
and there is NOTHING that could be compared with Him.
Al Quran, Al Ikhlas 112:1-4
p.s. Oh no.. I'm no expert. I lose more than I win in Scrabulous.
