Taqwa - literal
Pretty sure the literal meaning in Arabic of taqwa isn't "the price of freedom" as it is in Dune, but more along the lines of "piety". Herbert used a lot of words from other languages, other religions etc, but the novels were set millenia in the future and much of it was distorted or completely different. Any arabic speakers around? :) Davedx
I ran across this as a first name of a woman in California, USA. I have zero knowledge if it is a common given name in the US or elsewhere, but I figured I'd toss that possible other usage should be noted. If someone is more familiar with Arabic first names (in the US or elsewhere) could note on the entry if it is commonly used... or somebody familiar with name demographics can cite the popularity as a note in the entry. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:35, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
The tone of this article is largely that of Qur'anic exegesis, which is inappropriate for Wikipedia. If anyone feels like pointing their keyboards at this article, it'd be great. Ogress smash! 02:44, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
- Done. That whole section was entirely non-WP and unreferenced, so I just removed it. I left the basic definition and the etymology (gave it its own section), and I wouldn't mind seeing some neutral academic perspectives on the term. But as it stood it was basically just a khutbah on a religious term, which is not what WP is for. MatthewVanitas (talk) 08:36, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Actions that make Allah angry
I removed this part and I have rewritten the ending part of the the first sections, because not all Muslims understand God as an "entity" that expresses man like emotions such as anger, hatred...etc 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:02, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
