How to use timber in a sentence?

  1. Ahmed Moosa:

    I have always had doubts about the Saudi family. I always suspected that they are hypocrites and this is now confirmed with what they are doing with this Un-Islamic blockade. These Saudis are from the stock of desert Arabs and are no different from the time of the Messenger of Allâh. Please note I am referring to the leadership known as the Saudi family, not the people of Arabia, which is the proper name of that area mentioned in the Divine Book. Sissi is the same, an enemy of Islam and a hypocrite in the extreme. He is in bed with the yahud and proud of that. He toppled a good man Muhammad Morsi who is a Muslim who I respect. These evil persons do not truly believe in Al-Qur’ân because if they did they would fear the warnings in Allâh’s Book, but because they don’t they do what they want. I quote the following verses from the Divine Book, Al-Qur’ân that I feel are appropriate to these Munafikoon: Surah number 9 ayah 101. “Certain of the desert Arabs round about you are Hypocrites, as well as (desert Arabs) among the Medina folk: they are obstinate in hypocrisy: thou knowest them not: WE (i.e. Allâh) know them: twice shall WE (i.e. Allâh) punish them: and in addition shall they be sent to a grievous penalty.” Surah Munafikoon number 63 ayah 4. “When thou lookest at them, their exteriors please thee; and when they speak thou listenest to their words. They are as (worthless as hollow) pieces of timber propped up, (unable to stand on their own). They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemies; so beware of them. The curse of Allâh be on them! How are they deluded (away from the Truth)!” Surah number 5 verse 32. “On that account: WE (i.e. Allâh) ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief In the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our (i.e. Allâh’s) messengers with Clear Signs (ayat) , yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses In the land.” Surah 6 ayah 151. “Say: Come, I (i.e. Muhammad) will rehearse what Allâh hath (really) prohibited you from: join not anything as equal with him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;- WE (i.e. Allâh) provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds, whether open or secret; take not life, which Allâh hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth HE (i.e. Allâh) command you, that ye may learn wisdom.” These Munafikoon are destined for hell because the Saudis are killing believers in Yemen, Sissi is killing them in Egypt etc. Surah 4 ayah 93. “If a person kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein (for ever): and the wrath and the curse of Allâh are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him.”

  2. Douglas Malloch:

    Good timber does not grow with ease the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.

  3. The WWF report:

    If everybody in the world had the same ecological footprint as an average EU resident - emitting as much carbon, consuming as much food, timber and fibers, and occupying as much built up space - May 10th would be the date by which humanity would have used as much from nature than our planet can renew in a whole year, for the rest of the year, humanity would have to live off depleting the natural capital of the Earth.

  4. Overlung:

    Wit is brushwood; judgment timber; the one gives the greatest flame, and the other yields the most durable heat; and both meeting make the best fire.

  5. Swe Ba:

    We have been reducing timber extraction, and now we have decided to stop logging completely, this measure will cover teak and other hardwoods all across the country.
