Day Thirty Seventh (A Journey with Quran)

Surah Al Imran: Ayats 191 — 200

191. Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire.

192. “Our Lord! any whom Thou dost admit to the Fire, Truly Thou coverest with shame, and never will wrong-doers find any helpers!

193. “Our Lord! we have heard the call of one calling (Us) to Faith, ‘Believe ye in the Lord,’ and we have believed. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, blot out from us our iniquities, and take to Thyself our souls in the company of the righteous.

194. “Our Lord! Grant us what Thou didst promise unto us through Thine apostles, and save us from shame on the Day of Judgment: For Thou never breakest Thy promise.”

195. And their Lord hath accepted of them, and answered them: “Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female: Ye are members, one of another: Those who have left their homes, or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in My Cause, or fought or been slain,- verily, I will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath;- A reward from the presence of Allah, and from His presence is the best of rewards.”

196. Let not the strutting about of the Unbelievers through the land deceive thee:

197. Little is it for enjoyment: Their ultimate abode is Hell: what an evil bed (to lie on)!

198. On the other hand, for those who fear their Lord, are Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath; therein are they to dwell (for ever),- a gift from the presence of Allah. and that which is in the presence of Allah is the best (bliss) for the righteous.

199. And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who believe in Allah, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to Allah. They will not sell the Signs of Allah for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and Allah is swift in account.

200. O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah. that ye may prosper.

Translation: Abdullah Yusuf

The Ayats 193 — 194 is a lovely prayer which I say morning, and evening after saying my Farz prayers.

Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, blot out from us our iniquities, and take to Thyself our souls in the company of the righteous.

194. “Our Lord! Grant us what Thou didst promise unto us through Thine apostles, and save us from shame on the Day of Judgment: For Thou never breakest Thy promise.”

This plaque hangs on my bedroom wall. I’m afraid my Arabic writing isn’t much, but this reminds me when I forget to recite it.

Impression

First impressions don’t last with me

Why is that you tell me

Feelings of disappointment linger, and hold

Inside my heart, and they sadden me

Shown your true colors at last

Wish that had happened when you first met me

It’s like I have descended within the pit of hell

Burning bright is the fire consuming me

For the frivolous you-a lying game

Where once there was love

It has become a lying game

Deceiving your own children and others 

It’s really a horrifying shame

The frivolous you think

There is something to gain

The insults, the angry fights

By the vicious you

At the person who still loves you

A time will come for the fire of hatred in your heart to abate

Then unending grief and bitter remorse will take over

Time won’t stand still for you to realize

Before you know love will be over

Third Headline

  

I don’t want to read the news

But I have to answer the prompt

Topmost I saw Obama

The second news I forgot

But the third one is about fire

To save lives the firemen fought

Two lives did they save

To harm they came naught

Bravo to the brave firemen

As heroes they are sought

Nothing Lasts

Burning Down the House
by Michelle W.
Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

Fire rages in my heart today

Burning everything in its way

Thoughts, feelings have all been destroyed

Not a thing remains……….

Emptiness prevails

Nothing lasts………
