As I read the holy Quran today, I would love to share to everyone:
O mankind! there hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts, and for those who believe, a Guidance and a Mercy.
Say: "In the Bounty of Allah, and His Mercy, in that is better than the (wealth) they hoard.
Surah Yunus, 10:57-58
Behold! Verily to Allah belong all creatures, in the heavens and on earth, what do they follow who worship as His "partners" other than Allah? They follow nothing but fancy, and they do nothing but lie.
He it is that hath made you the Night that ye may rest therein, and the Day to make things visible (to you). Verily in this are Signs for those who listen (to His Message).
Surah Yunus, 10:66-67
3d/f=1yr 8 Shawwal, 1433
