Surah Al-Hadeed 57: - (The Iron)
With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

(He is the First and the Last, and the Manifest and the Hidden, and He is All-Knowing about everything... 57:3]

COMMENTARY: The attribute Al-Akhir [the Last] means that He, Allah will exist even after everything will perish, as the following verse testifies: (Everything has to perish except His Countenance ... [28:88] It should be noted that death or perishing covers two possibilities, either actual death or potential death. Therefore the verse means that all existent creatures will either actually perish on the Day of Judgment, or they may not actually perish, but potentially they could perish. They have the inherent capacity for death and destruction.

Thus despite their being existent they may still be described as Halik or Fani [perishing]. As for instance. Paradise and Hell, and the righteous or unrighteous inmates entering them will not actually perish, but potentially they have the inherent capacity to perish. Only the Supreme Being of Allah is such that neither non-existence has ever occurred to Him, nor can death overtake Him. Thus Allah is Al-'Akhir [the Last].

I never understood it a very strange feeling beyond all others
I don't exactly know what I should begin to call it but all I know is it was amazing
something so different I looked up and finally I saw something worth looking at
at first I was afraid because for me it was something new

something so extraordinary I didn't quite know how to handle it
but then I couldn't stop staring
it was so beautiful it was like a butterfly finally escaping from its cocoon
I think a part of me flew away I took a step out of my comfort zone read more

On reaching his plane seat a man is surprised to see a parrot strapped in next to him. He asks the stewardess for a coffee where upon the parrot squawks "And get me a whisky you cow!" The stewardess, flustered, brings back a whisky for the parrot and forgets the coffee.

When this omission is pointed out to her the parrot drains its glass and bawls "And get me another whisky you idiot". Quite upset, the girl comes back shaking with another whisky but still no coffee.

Unaccustomed to such slackness the man tries the parrot's approach "I've asked you twice for a coffee, go and get it now or I'll kick you".

The next moment, both he and the parrot have been wrenched up and thrown out of the emergency exit by two burly stewards. Plunging downwards the parrot turns to him and says "For someone who can't fly, you complain too much!"
