Daily Prompt: Heroic

Show HERO.

Chapter 40 Al Mumin (The Believer) or Gafir (Forgiver), Section 5, verses 38-40

My every day heroes are from my most cherished book, “The Holy Quran”. Since my childhood I have been reading it.

All the Prophets have been my heroes. To a world filled with darkness of ignorance, they brought rays of knowledge about One, True God. God sent them again and again to convey His Message to mankind.

They taught kindness, goodness, piety and humility. They tended to the needs of mankind.

See the Prophet Ibrahim (Abrahim), how he faced the unbelievers. A pyre was ignited to burn him to death. God changed it to flowers.

See Musa (Moses) when he faced Pharoah and his men, and how the sea parted for him and his followers and he took them to safety.

See Essa (Jesus), how he faced the unbelievers, and how he helped the poor and needy people and healed them from diseases with God’s help.

The last Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), how he struggled against ignorance and faced hardships to spread the Message of God, which has been one and the same from Beginning to Eternity.

There is no god but HE
The Creator of the universe
And all there in
To Him we belong
And to Him we are going to return

My Heroes

Prayer For The Day


ربنا اتنا من لدنك رحمة وهي لنا من امرنا رشدا


” Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way.” Amen.

Quran, Chapter18 Surah Al Kahf, Verse (Ayat) 10

Al Kahf means Companions of the Cave.

Seven youths went to sleep in a cave in the reign of Emperor Decius. (Who reigned from 249-251 A.C.; and who was a violent persecutor of Christians) They awoke in the reign of Theodosius (the second) who reigned from 408-450 A.C.

The youths hid in the cave, but they trusted in Allah and made over their whole case to Him in prayer. Then they fell asleep and knew nothing of what was happening in the world outside.
(Tafseer from The Quran.Text Translation and Commentary by Abdullah Yusuf Ali)

One of my favorite prayer in my daily Azkars(اذكار) whenever I am feeling worried about something I say it and leave the rest to God.
