In Response To: N2I ? (Sr.Saad)

I just understood what you were inferring in your original post N2I?

In some quarters the reference to a ‘number 1’ is for urination and a ‘number 2’ if for defecation.

We are asked by Allah to partake of the good things of this earth:-

2:57 And We shaded you with Our Grace and We bestowed upon you Our Bounties in abundance, saying, “Partake of the decent things We have provided you.” And they did not harm Us; but they had certainly harmed their own ‘selves’.
[Zall = Shade. Ghamam = Clouds. Being shaded with clouds in the desert is a blessing, hence my rendition as Grace. Manna-wus-Salwa = God’s sustenance that reaches all members of the community equitably. Literally, it also means delicious fruit (Manna) and fowl or quail meat (Salwa). Tayyab = Decent and clean = Of one's liking = Not forbidden in the Qur’an = Good for mind and body = Pleasant]

This includes good actions as well as good food. Consuming food allows us to remove the nutritional or wholesome constituents, which are of benefit to us. What is left, the waste matter, is of no use or is harmful and this is excreted.

Take out the balancing goodness of the Quran, mix it man made ideologies, theories, fairy tales etc and what comes out will not be beneficial, but harmful:-

2:102 (They had followed conjecture in the past as well.) Some satanic folk spread a rumour in the Kingdom of Solomon. Solomon never disbelieved in the Divine Laws, but the satanic folk did. They fabricated a story that two angels Haaroot and Maaroot had descended in Babylon and taught magic to some people; and that they used to warn people, “We are only a temptation, therefore be not oblivious to the rational Divine Laws.” The rumour further stated that people learned magic from both of them and learned how to create discord between a man and his wife. They could harm none against the Divine Laws. And what they try to learn only harms them and does not profit them. Indeed, they ought to know that any person indulging in this trade (the so-called occult sciences) will be a loser in the long run, and shall have no portion in the Hereafter. And certainly, evil is the price for which they sell their humanity, if they only knew better.

So N2I can be looked at as an offensive term, but I find it quite appropriate.
