To teach, teaching, a school of thought,
religion or a method/philosophy. It consist of two characters, one a man holding a stick –symbolise authority
and two-the action of a Master descending (pouring or transmitting) upon a
disciple/child/murid. So we had heard
the familiar name for Islamic teaching as Qing Zhen Chiao in
– Brightness, illumination or light. Consist of three characters , a cluster of Sun, Moon and Stars. Tai yang , Yueh and Xing. This deep meaning was captured nicely in several surah and ayats of Quran.

( a glittering star neither East or west) Nurun alan-nur !
(Light upon Light and Allah whom He wills to His Light)
Fasting. One line of top cut off from food and a heart character below, a Shi-warning or proclaimation . Cut, reduce, diminish, hence fasting. It also means abstinence, to rule oneself,so that one fit to receive the inspirations of Heaven and the heart become pure-shining.

man standing beside a mountain. A man whose rose high above mortals. Exalted
