SURAH AL- Jinn 72: (Jinns)

This Surah is Makki. It has 28 verses and 2 sections.
With the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Very- Merciful

"If they remain steadfast upon the path, we shall definitely bless them with abundant showers..." [16] "...To test them with it. Whoever turns away from the remembrance of his Rabb, we shall enter him into a severe punishment" [17]

COMMENTARY: In the previous lesson we discussed how after listening to the recitation of the Quraan by Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, the Jinn realized that they are also a creation of Allah Ta'aala and they will be questioned regarding their actions.

In this weeks lesson, Allah Ta'aala tells Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam to inform the non believers of Makkah that if they bring Imaan and remain steadfast on Islaam then instead of punishing them with droughts, Allah Ta'aala will bless them with abundant rain. Mention is made of the fact that the rains will also be sent down as a test to see if they will express gratitude or not. Whoever turns away from Imaan and the worship of Allah Ta'aala will be given a severe punishment.

~ Quraan made easy ~




If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

An Apple A Day

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. When the dietary habits of more than 34,000 women were recorded, apples were one of few foods that had the highest correlation with reduction of both cardiovascular disease (any heart and blood vessel ailment, including coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, heart failure, etc.) and coronary heart disease (caused by narrowing of coronary arteries in or near the heart). Pears were also put in the category of apples.



125g butter or margarine - 1/2 cup sugar - 2 extra large eggs - 2 1/4 cups cake flour - 1ml salt - 2 tsp baking powder - 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda - 150g fruit cake mix - 1 cup sour milk - 1/2 cup milk.

Beat butter and sugar. Add egg at a time and beat until light and fluffy. Sift dry ingredients and add to egg mix. Add fruit. Whisk sour milk and milk together and mix. Spoon into well greased 23cm loaf and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 55 - 60 minutes. Cool off slightly in tin before turning out onto wire rack.

This recipe makes 1 loaf.

"Ons voel mos nie almal altyd dieselfde nie, is dit nie? Partymaal voel jy goed en ek dalk bietjie af, soos Allah wil. Kliek hier vir die nuutste Dagstukkie om jou aan te moedig. Ons het ook al die Dagstukkies wat ons nou al uitgestuur het saam op een bladsy gesit, juis vir jou gerief. As ek dus 'n Dagstukkie uitstuur en jy voel dis nou nie vandag vir jou bedoel nie, dan kan jy sommer maklik vir jouself al die Dagstukkie-opskrifte gaan deurkyk totdat jy een vind wat jou hart aanraak. Of as iets gebeur wat jou so bietjie van balans af gooi: besoek die Dagstukkies! Jy weet nooit, dalk wil Allah jou juis deur 'n besondere Dagstukkie bemoedig.

E-pos ons by as jy die Dagstukkies op jou rekenaar wil ontvang..."


There were three fathers to be in a hospital waiting room, waiting for their babies to be born.

The first nurse comes out and tells the first father, "Congratulations you're the father of twins!" He says, "Great! I am the manager for the Minnesota Twins."

The second nurse comes out and tells the second father, "Congratulations you're the father of triplets"! He says, "That's cool! I work for 3M."

The third father opens the window and jumps out.

The third nurse comes out, and asks, "Where's the third father?"

One of the other fathers said, "Oh he jumped out the window."

The nurse asks, "Why?"

He replied, "He works for Seven Up!"
