Surah 39 – Al Zumar (Crowds) 65 – 75 I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 65. But it has already been revealed to thee,- as it was to those before thee,- “If thou wert to join (gods with Allah., truly fruitless will be thy work (in life), and thou wilt surely be in the ranks of those who lose (all spiritual good)”. 66. Nay, but worship Allah, and be of those who give thanks. 67. No just estimate have they made of Allah, such as is due to Him: On the Day of Judgment the whole of the earth will be but His handful, and the heavens will be rolled up in His right hand: Glory to Him! High is He above the Partners they attribute to Him! 68. The Trumpet will (just) be sounded, when all that are in the heavens and on earth will swoon, except such as it will please Allah (to exempt). Then will a second one be sounded, when, behold, they will be standing and looking on! 69. And the Earth will shine with the Glory of its Lord: the Record (of Deeds) will be placed (open); the prophets and the witnesses will be brought forward and a just decision pronounced between them; and they will not be wronged (in the least). 70.

Ramadan, Month of Mercy and Forgivness Realistic Goals It is very important to set ourselves realizable goals and not to set our sights so high that we fail to achieve them. For example, if we are not all that faithful to Prayer during the course of the year, it is unrealistic to expect that we will pray the five daily Prayers as well as Tarawih Prayers in the mosque and that we will get up during the last third of the night to pray as our Prophet did (peace and blessings be upon him). If we don’t usually spend too much time reciting the Qur’an, it is unrealistic to expect that we can recite the whole of the Qur’an during Ramadan. In other words, be realistic in the goals you set yourself. One sure way we can all benefit from Ramadan is to give more. What do we mean by this? Well, we can give more of our time to Allah and to others; in so doing, we can understand and take to heart what Ramadan and Islam is all about. Ramadan is the month in the Islamic calendar when our holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) first received the revelation of the Qur’an from Jibril (Angel Gabriel). For the rest of the Prophet’s life, Jibril visited him during Ramadan, and they recited the whole of the Qur’an together. In the last Ramadan before the Prophet died, they recited the whole of the Qur’an together twice.
