Surah Al-Hashr (The Mustering)
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 24 verses and 3 sections

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most Merciful

The Merits of al-Muhajireen [The Emigrants]

"And for the poor emigrants who were expelled from their homes and properties, while they were seeking the grace of Allah and (His) pleasure, and were helping Allah and His Messenger. They are the truthful. ... 59:8."

COMMENTARY: The second characteristic of the emigrants is described thus: "...seeking the grace of Allah and [His] pleasure... 59:8)." When they embraced Islam, abandoned their country and wealth and migrated, they did not have any ulterior motive. They did all this only to seek Divine favour and gain His good pleasure. This indicates their perfect sincerity. The word Fadhl [bounty, grace] is normally used for worldly blessings and Ridhwaan [good pleasure] for blessings of the Hereafter. From this viewpoint, the verse purports to describe that the emigrants gave up all their previous means of luxury, such as their hearths and homes, and now they were in quest of their worldly needs and the blessings of the Hereafter in the shade of Islam. Their objective was to seek the necessities of worldly life under the banner of Allah's and His Messenger's (Peace be Upon Him) efficacious grace.

Peri Peri Chicken


4 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic,
juice of 1 fresh lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon paprika
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp oregano
1 teaspoon Portuguese spice
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon chillie flakes ( if u need heat )
4 chicken legs( or one whole chicken spatchcocked with skin on )
extra sea salt, optional( I use a dry spice like chicken spice to sprinkle on chicken the last ten minutes or so of baking ) A few tablespoons or West Indian sauce or nandos sauce ( I mix this in at the end , when u sprinkling the spice on skin ) with some water n corn flour n pour it in on the bottom of pan to thicken the juices n make a sauce )

In a blender combine everything except the chicken and the extra salt, blend until very smooth. Score chicken legs with a knife a few times. Marinade the chicken at least 1 hour or overnight. Bake from cold with skin side down for the first ten mins on 180 . Turn chicken skin side up . Keep basting with extra sauce, and continue to bake till the last 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked when u will then have to sprinkle spice on skin and thicken sauce.
Serve with sauce n chips, onion rings, on salad on the side.

Once after work, my boss, a self-titled “e-mail man,” sent me a text message instructing me to check my e-mail.

I rushed over to my computer and pulled up the important missive. It contained two words: “Call me.”
