Sword Art Online: Mothers Rosary txt download. Egypt—Social life and customs. Arabian nights. Lane-Poole, Stanley, — WHEN Mr. Lane translated the Thousand and One Nights, he was not content with producing a mere rendering of the Arabic text: he saw that the manners and ideas there described required a commentary if they were to become intelligible to an unlearned reader. At the end of each chapter of his translation, therefore, he appended a series of explanatory notes, which often reached the proportions of elaborate essays on the main characteristics of Mohammadan life.
These notes have long been recognized by Orientalists as the most complete picture in existence of Arabian society—or rather of those Arab, Persian, or Greek, but still Mohammadan, conditions of life and boundaries of the mental horizon which are generally distinguished by the name of Arabian. Their position and arrangement, however, scattered as they were through three large volumes, and inserted in the order required not by their subjects but by the tales they illustrated, rendered them difficult to consult, and cumbrous, if not impossible, to read consecutively.
The publication of a new impression of the Thousand and One Nights presented an opportunity for discussing the project; and the result is the present volume. My task, as editor, has been a simple one.
I have rejected only those notes which have no value apart from the main work—glossarial notes, for instance, giving the English of the proper names occurring in the Arabian Nights; disquisitions on the probable date of the composition of the tales; and others inseparably connected with the stories themselves.
The rest I have arranged in a series of chapters, interweaving the shorter notes in the longer, and giving as far as possible an air of unity to each division. Such insignificant changes as I have made, I think I may state with confidence, would have been approved by the author. Beyond a few notes distinguished by square brackets, a new and very minute index in which all Arabic words are explained , and a list of the authorities quoted, I have added nothing of my own.
Press and elsewhere, it is surprising how little they have been used by European authors. It would be impossible now to gather the minute details of a purely Mohammadan society which Mr. Belief in God, who is without beginning or end, the sole Creator and Lord of the universe, having absolute power, and knowledge, and glory, and perfection. Belief in his Angels, who are impeccable beings, created of light; and Genii Jinn , who are peccable, created of smokeless fire.
The Devils, whose chief is Iblees, or Satan, are evil Genii. Jesus is held to be more excellent than any of those who preceded him, to have been born of a virgin, and to be the Messiah and the word of God and a Spirit proceeding from him, but not partaking of his essence and not to be called the Son of God. Mohammad is held to be more excellent than all, the last and greatest of prophets and apostles, the most excellent of the creatures of God. Belief in the general Resurrection and Judgment, and in future rewards and punishments, chiefly of a corporeal nature: the punishments will be eternal to all but wicked Mohammadans; and none but Mohammadans will enter into a state of happiness.
Many hold that fate is in some respects absolute and unchangeable, in others admitting of alteration; and almost all of them act kam is appointed destiny" decreed by God. Want to Read saving….

Lane lived in Egypt for several years, intermittently in the twenties and thirties of the nineteenth century. Even in Egypt he limited himself to certain Islamic quarters in Cairo and consciously avoided the other cultures and multiple heritages of one of the world's oldest civilisations.
