What is the Broken Window Fallacy? K.I.K

What is the Broken Window Fallacy? K.I.K | K.I.K; A Different Perspective | Scoop.it

Mark Wells's insight:

The purpose of this theory is to offset the notion that war brings prosperity when in reality, all it does is bring destructiveness to those involved and eventually, the economies that they were suppose to serve. A nation don't need to be destructive to be productive.

Akhlaq;  Preach To Others by Your Manners

Akhlaq;  Preach To Others by Your Manners | K.I.K; A Different Perspective | Scoop.it
Akhlaq is an Arabic term referring to the practice of virtue, morality and good manners in Islamic Theology and Philosophy (Falsafah). It is most commonly tr…
Mark Wells's insight:

"There is also a saying in English, that the eyes are the windows to the soul. That means that whatever we look at, directly affects our Nafs. If we look at things, which are forbidden (Haraam), we are lowering the standard of our Nafs, while if we refrain from looking at Haraam; we are strengthening the Imaan (faith) of our Nafs.

The problem with the world today is that the physical body is being looked after very well, but the soul is being totally neglected. This causes the disease of the soul, which people do not realize. Such diseases cause intensive and long-term damage. A good Akhlaq can change the mentality of even a bad person. It is indeed a silent but effective preaching."  Excerpt  Akhlaq;  Preach To Others by Your Manners
