Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

"Know well that the worldly life is but a play and an amusement, and a show of beauty, and exchange of boastful claims between you, and a competition of increase in riches and children. (All this is) like a rain, the vegetation of which attracts the farmers, then it withers, and you see it turning yellow, then it becomes straw. And in the Hereafter there is a severe punishment (for the disbelievers), and forgiveness from Allah and (Allah's) pleasure (for the believers and the righteous). And the worldly life is nothing but a material of delusion." (57:20)

COMMENTARY: The word La'ib (play) refers to a play that has no purpose at all, like the movements of little children. The Lahw [amusement or pastime] is a game or sport meant initially for amusement and enjoyment, but it may serve also some other subsidiary purpose like physical exercise. It includes all the sports of the bigger children such as playing with a ball or swimming or target-shooting.

Prophetic Traditions have termed swimming and target-shooting as good sports. The early stage of one's life is spent in play and amusement. Then comes a stage in his youth when man wants to adorn his body and dress and to show their beauty, which is described in the verse as 'Zeenah'. Then comes a stage in which man is tempted to prove his superiority over his mates and to make boastful claims. In old age, a keen competition and rivalry sets in to amass wealth and multiply children.

You are to me…

You are to me the reason of my being
You are to me the days without sunshine
You are to me the flowers that blooms after a long winter
You are to me the first rains that comes with spring
That washes away the dust and dullness
You are to me the green of the grass
You are to me the fragrance of every flower

You are to me the Strength when I feel weak
You are to me Cure to my aches and pains
You are to me the Weakness when I cannot say no
You are to me the Sadness when you cry
You are to me the Love that I feel in my Heart

You are to me the Dream that came true
You are to me the Best Daughter in the world
You are to me My Everything
You are to me very gift I've ever longed for

I can go on and on and never have enough to express my blessings and Love that I feel...

I wish that I can take away all the pains and stresses that life will throw to you.

Remember my darling child.... You are Loved beyond measure... Beyond time... Beyond infinity

You are to me my one and only Fazlin….

One day, Uncle Joe got fired from his construction job. His nephew asked him what happened.

"You know what a foreman is?" he asked. "The one who stands around and watches the other men work?"

"What's that got to do with it?" he asked.

"Well, he just got jealous of me," Uncle Joe explained. "Everyone thought I was the foreman."
