... Have and Have Not , novel by Hemingway , published in 1937 . Harry Morgan, a tough “conch,” as natives of Key West, Fla., call themselves, has devoted his life to the single-minded effort to keep himself, his wife, and his children on the upper fringe of the “have-nots.” He hires out his powerboat to wealthy men for fishing trips, but, when the Depression destroys this source of income and a rich tourist welshes on payment for lost fishing tackle, he is obliged to turn to illegal activities.

...TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT US film 1945. Script by Jules Furthman and William Faulkner after Ernest Hemingway's novel. With Lauren Bacall as Slim and Humphrey Bogart as Steve. If you want anything – just whistle. This is not a direct quotation (though sometimes given as such). What Bacall actually says to Bogart – and not the other way round, as in PDMQ (1980) – is: ‘You know you don't have to act with me, Steve. You don't have to say anything, and you don't have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you,...

...or interpretation given by a jurisconsult ( mufti ) in response to a request from a judge ( qadi ) or an individual. Some modern Muslim governments have obtained fatwas to legitimate their reforms. Question: Does Islam support terrorism? If yes, is the act justified by Islam? Answer: by Sheikh Dr. Ahmad ‘Abd al-Latîf For your question regarding terrorism, the answer depends on the meaning applied to this word. If the meaning is to assassinate children and women and innocents who have not engaged in fighting, then Islam has a clear rule about it: that...

...unity to the Arabs themselves. If, contrary to fact, the Arab world were more extensive and wider than the Muslim world, it would have been possible to imagine a Muslim union without Arab union, and it would have been permissible to say that Muslim union is easier to realize than Arab union. But as the position is the exact opposite, there is no logical scope whatever for such statements and speculations. We must not forget this truth when we think and speak concerning Muslim unity and Arab unity. The idea of Muslim unity is, it is true, wider and more...

Science and Progress The Europeans have now put their hands on every part of the world. The English have reached Afghanistan; the French have seized Tunisia. In reality this usurpation, aggression, and conquest have not come from the French or the English. Rather it is science that everywhere manifests its greatness and power.

...as being endowed with some superior attributes and to the woman as being endowed with inferior attributes. The attributes are the same. Both are the creatures of God. Both have certain rights. Both have certain duties. Both have certain obligations. If they want to go to Heaven, they have to behave in a special manner. If they want to do good in this earth, they have to give alms to the needy, they have to help orphans—the behavior is applicable to both men and women. It is not religion which makes the difference. The difference comes from man-made law. It...

...want to say is that we have no need for anyone to reconstruct us brick by brick, to restructure our personality and dictate the positions we should take. We must have the possibility to profit from the experience of mankind, but we too have an experience which others should respect and profit from. In this way we interact with the world that it may benefit from us as we benefit from it. But if someone thinks he can come and rebuild us from zero and mold us into new forms according to his lights, we will resist stubbornly. We will not allow ourselves to be...

...came down to you. Our God and your God is one, and to Him we submit.” (Sura 29, Verse 46) The Arabic word used in this verse, and rendered in the translation by the verb “to submit,” is “ Muslimun ” —“Muslims.” To be a true Muslim is to live in courteous dialogue with peoples of other faiths and ideologies, and ultimately to submit to God. We must show concern to our neighbors. We have duties to them, and we are not islands of loneliness. The attitude of respectful courtesy recommended by...

... It is not surprising that the biblical writers have little to say directly about trade, since this was not something in which they were particularly interested and it was often incidental. For example, the reference to a caravan of Ishmaelite or Midianite traders ‘coming from Gilead, with their camels carrying gum, balm, and resin, on their way to carry it down to Egypt’ ( Gen. 37: 25 ) explains how Joseph was taken down to Egypt. It is possible that such marriages as that of Ahab to Jezebel, the daughter of the king of Sidon...

...and, at the same time, the primacy ceased. It was not given to any person to succeed him in that primacy nor in his prophetic mission. If it was absolutely necessary that one of the followers of the Prophet take a position of preeminence after his death, then that preeminence would have to be entirely new and different from that which we recognized in the Prophet. . . . The Muslims knew then that they were instituting a civil or temporal government and nothing more. This is why they allowed themselves the liberty to revolt against this government and...

...the Orient and Occident. It is an interesting fact of history that at that time the stimulation for scientific development flowed from Muslims to non-Muslims and today it must flow from non-Muslims to Muslims. I do not think that it is derogatory to learn science and technology from a non-Muslim, but in learning new things from others, the Muslim should retain those good things that are wonderful and beautiful in Islamic teaching, doctrines that are capable of removing friction amongst individuals and nations. The Muslim should have an open mind and an open...

We do not believe for a moment that this party of agitators mean to rebel, or to incite the people to rebel, against the Government; but what they have done, and are still doing is enculated [ sic ] to spread general discontent against the Government, and what is to be regretted the more is that discontent is mostly or rather generally improper and unjustified, and is in itself calculated to create rebellious thoughts among the people....

Any distinctions between them would thus be made in terms of their piety and not in terms of their sex. It would be impossible to have a discussion on any topic in the Qur'an which would exhaust the material covered in the text itself.

...and the Shudra or cultivators and crafts persons. In the case of Brahmin names, the jati is usually not identified in this work. In the case of non-Brahman names, however, only the jati is mentioned, because the varna affiliation of several of these jatis are disputed. Not every Hindu surname can be linked with a special community. Some of them are common to several jatis or varnas (for example, naik and prabhu ), and their etymology frequently lies in occupational titles. (Surnames in small capitals occur as entries in the Dictionary.) Some names have no...
