Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)

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

"...And Allah does not love any self-admirer, over-proud..." 57:23

COMMENTARY: The expression "does not love" in fact implies that Allah 'hates' those who become proud of the bounties they enjoy in this world. But instead of using the word 'hates' the expression 'does not love' is perhaps an indication that an intelligent person should consider about all his actions whether or not the intended act is dear to Allah. This is the reason why the verse uses the phrase 'does not love'.

I Wish I Knew, how to get my feelings through to you.
I Wish I knew how to show you that I really care.
I Wish I Knew how to make you see just how much you mean to me.
I wish I knew how to let you open your heart to me.
I wish I Knew what is going on in your mind.
I Wish I knew how to stop you from being unkind.

I Wish I Knew that I will be there when you are happy, sad, lonely or mad.
I Wish I Knew how to make you see that I will not always be there.
I wish I knew how to show you see the pain you put me through.
I wish I knew why you never see how I live my life for you.
I wish I knew why you always chose to fight and argue about all I say and do.

I Wish I Knew what to do when you are feeling low and sad and very blue...
I Wish I Knew how to to make you see the world for what it really is ...
I Wish I Knew how to take away the darkest clouds from your sky so you can always have sunshine.
I Wish I Knew how to make all your dreams come true and …..
I Wish I knew how to make your life a dream come true.

I Wish I Knew...

The speaker at my bank's drive-through window had been broken for weeks, and we tellers had to resort to miming or writing notes to communicate with our frustrated customers.

One day a sweet elderly lady whom I would see every week pulled up to the window, leaned out of her car and smacked the glass in front of my face.

"Hope this is bulletproof," she yelled. There had just been a robbery at another bank nearby, so I was touched by her concern.

"It is," I yelled back.

"Good," she continued, "because someone is going to shoot you if you don't get that speaker fixed."
