DP Daily Prompt: Worldly Encounters

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend one book, movie, or song, that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

I am not really sure I can recommend a book,a movie or a song that explains what humans are all about. 

I cannot think of a book I read a movie I watched or a song I heard explains what humans are all about.

However if I’m allowed I can sum up my thoughts and explain to the extraterrestrial outside that humans were created out of a handful of clay, they were given the required health,happiness and intelligence to make the world a better place to live. God overlooked the point that Satan who was made of fire was subjected to bow before Adam,while all the other angels obeyed God, Satan refused,as a result he was thrown out of paradise.This did not bode well with Satan who promised to make life difficult for humans.

Now we have good and bad people,ones who are trying to do good to humanity and others who are doing the exact opposite.

Good and evil are living side by side. When something good happens to our planet,Satan takes over and makes sure everything good is undone by his followers. 

I have collected this information from books, movies and songs I have heard. I had to give my support to all three mediums to know and explain all about humans.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this interesting post.

    If I met an English-speaking extra-terrestrial, I would give them a copy of Khurram Sir’s new book, “Iqbal: His Life and Our Times.”

    I would also invite them for a meal of pizza and then, later, coffee. As these are two of my favorites, I would ask that they share it together with me.

    I would ensure that s/he/it knows that there is a very special essence of humanity, innate in her, that is immeasurably powerful, despite the outward appearance of the world which might fool one into giving up on humanity.

    All good wishes,


    • Hi Sonya at first I could not think of a book,movie or a song that can explain,at least the ones I read or watched or heard.
      My first thought was to not do it. Then I thought I’ll take some of Iqbal’s teachings and write it.
      Their prompts can be weird at times.
