The Opening

Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds
Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Master of the Day of Judgement
Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek
Show us the straight way
The way of those on whom Thou has bestowed Thy Grace
Those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.

No Power

I accidentally deleted a post.  In Google Reader, I can't really believe it, but the title reads Dreams.  The post was dated June 26, 2011.  Why would I name it so.  The picture is as per original, this was Dreams.

I had been busy.  My mind had been busy.  With stuff.  One verse crept through my mind into my brain as a clear reminder to me.  Al-Mu'minun, The Believers 23:115.

And did you think that We created you in jest (for a pastime) and that you would not be returned to Us (for account)?

Assalamualaikum And Sincere Greetings

It is past midnight but I am not able to sleep.  I listen to the frogs, they are noisy and loud.  My mind had been away, from this blog. What is that cricketty sound in the background that falls in rhythm with the singing of the frogs.  Could it be it is the song of the crickets.  I wonder.  Or the sound of another tribe of frogs.  But it is an orchestra outside my bedroom.

I click on the The Holy Qur'an - trasnlation by Yusuf Ali.  I click on Luqman.  I scroll to the bottom of the page.  And so this is Luqman verse 34.

34. Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with God (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with God is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).

This is a reflection for me to ponder and be reminded upon tonight.
