In Session

What does it take to realize that you need to talk to someone?  Is it an anxiety attack…maybe several anxiety attacks?  But you’re fine, going to a shrink is ridiculous.  Is it feeling really high, then crashing to a low?   You didn’t wake up and go to work the other day because of it, but it’s not a problem, you don’t do therapy. Is it pressure from family that you

don’t need to pay for someone to talk to you?  You know what they’d think—and they speak their mind—you don’t need the expense of therapy just to pay someone to listen to you. Is it because in your family, with your customs, therapy is not an option?

In Session is the journey of four women, each one different in appearance and ethnicity, yet the same in many ways.  Although they come from different backgrounds, each one has family, success, failure, heartbreak and the best reasons to dismiss therapy. What they don’t have is real help when they need it—professional help—until one by one, their world collapses around them. Through the eyes of Andrea, Cori, Sophie and Vivian, we learn what they learn—therapy is for everyone, no matter who you are.

When Angels Wept: A Life Derailed

During World War I, they called it shell shock.  During World War II, they called it battle fatigue.  Today, it is known as post-traumatic stress disorder. All are tidy labels for the destruction of a mind.  When Angels Wept follows the path of an idealistic young airman's experiences and the horrors he encounters during World War II.

Born in Pasadena, California, Rod Hirsh has been raised with the Midwestern values of his Iowa born parents.  He has a respect for life, a belief in the rewards of hard work, and an acceptance of duty.  He loves his mother, respects his father, believes in God, and has an abiding trust in his country.  He grows up as a well-liked, though somewhat shy child, who develops a fascination with flying and dreams of one day becoming a pilot.  With the advent of World War II, he enters the Army Air Force Cadet Pilot Training Program and eventually becomes the captain of a B-17 bomber.

He finds love in a small, rural English village; yet death and destruction are ever-present.  It is in the skies over Europe that the horrors of war begin a relentless invasion of Hirsh's psyche, as his mind battles with the reality of a world that suddenly makes no sense.  As the Midwestern values he has been raised with become compromised, guilt begins to form fissures in his mind.  His respect for life collides with the destruction of a life caused by the bombs he drops.  When his sense of responsibility is devastated by the death of friends and crew members, the mental cracks widen and become hate filled crevices.

The Noble Qur’an

Islam expounded by the Qur’an is very different from what it appears, particularly what the non-Muslims see on those people who claim to be Muslims. Many of the beliefs and lifestyles exhibited by the formations referred to as “Islamic Centers” situated in your country are not the principles provided in the Qur’an but the beliefs and lifestyles that took place subsequently.

The religion of Islam is, as the meaning, “The religion that strengthens people [the set of principles that makes one distance from the things like problems, sorrows, wars, weaknesses, spiritual illnesses, unhappiness, and similar things and that endanger safety and security]. The religion of Islam taught in the Qur’an in fact distances people and societies from problems, fears, unhappiness, quarrels, wars, and similar negative things. All the principles in the Qur’an are for the health, happiness, and peaceful living of humanity.

I have shared the Qur’an with the entire humanity with the title of “İşte Qur’an! (The Qur’an is this!)” by analyzing it through the Arabic language and literature thoroughly in the period in which the Qur’an was sent down … In addition, I have prepared its interpretation and shared it with the entire humanity. The interpretation has now been published in English as well. I am talking about the original religion of Islam in the Qur’an in a TV show called “THE QUR’AN AND ISLAM” regularly on a TV channel. In addition, the issues determined from the Qur’an and concerning the humanity have been published in English as well. A part of such studies of us is available for sharing on our webpage entitled “http://presentationofislamandquran.com/”

To whom it may concern!

Sharing of the Qur’an’s original messages by yourself with the humanity will be beneficial for you and the entire humanity.

If your institution confers me the opportunity to introduce the Qur’an and the true religion of Islam, I undertake that I will provide this service without inflicting any material encumbrance to your institution …

Best regards…
