Salam Alykom and BIG BIG Ramadan Mubarak to my sisters and brothers in Islam. Hello to my non-Muslim readers. Tomorrow is the start of our beautiful month of Ramadan. To those who don't know what Ramadan is, please go here to read ---> Ramadan ....Now, on to my entry.
My heart is always over whelmed when I listen to our glorious Quran. If you have never heard of our Holy Book, the Quran, please go to the nearest mosque and get a copy. It will have the transliteration in what ever language you read. Did y'all know, that over 10 million Muslims worldwide have memorized Qur'an? When you hear the recitation you feel it with your mind and heart. The Quran is a miracle from God. He promised all man-kind that He would preserve it, so no one can change one single word in our book. We have only one Quran and it's never been changed in the 1,400 years Islam has come to all man-kind. This is what struck my heart strings when I was learning and reading about my religion. I was shocked and amazed. There is so much beauty in our Quran. After all, it is the word of God. The Quran is an effective cure for the soul and by reading it, it can provide a sense of well-being and peace for those who are looking for that peace they've never had before. I and millions of others can attest to this. Well, I didn't want this to be a long, drawn out post, I just wanted to get my point across. I will end it here with a prayer for all.
O Allah (God!) You are my Lord. There is no deity except You. You are my Creator and I am your creature. I try to keep my covenant with You and to live in the hope of Your promise as well as I can. I seek refuge in You from my one evil deeds. I acknowledge Your favors to me; and I acknowledge my sins. Forgive me my sins, for there is no one who can forgive sins except You
اللهم أنت ربي, لا إله إلا أنت , خلقتني وأنا عبدك, وأنا على عهدك ووعدك ماستطعت, أعوذ بك من شر ما صنعت, أبوء لك بنعمتك علي و أبوء بذنبي فاغفر لي, فإنه لا يغفر الذنوب إلا أنت
Allah (God) ! I seek refuge in You from worry and sorrow. I seek refuge in You from impotence and sloth, from stinginess and cowardice, and I seek refuge in You from the burden of debt and from being humbled by men
اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الهم والحزن ، وأعوذ بك من العجز والكسل ، وأعوذ بك من الجبن والبخل ، وأعوذ بك من غلبة الدين وقهر الرجال
O Allah (God)! Grant health to my body. O Allah (God) grant health to my hearing. O Allah (God)! Grant health to my sight. There is no deity except You.
الله عافني في بدني ، اللهم عافني في سمعي ، اللهم عافني في بصري
"La ilaha illallah" meaning "There is no god but God"
Ameen, wa sally Allahuma ala sayedina Mohammed wa sallim taslima katheera.. AMEEN!
The Quran ( ; ,, literally meaning "a recitation"), also transliterated Qur'an, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran, Kuran, and al-Qur’ān, is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims consider the verbatim word of God (, Allah) and the Final Testament, following the Old and New Testaments. It is regarded widely as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. The Quran is divided into 114 suras of unequal length which are classified either as Meccan or Medinan depending upon their place and time of revelation.
final whisper: Ramadan Mubarak everyone!!!! <3
