Surah Al-Nahl 16: - (The Honey Bee)

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

And Allah has given an example that there was a town, secure and satisfied, with its sustenance coming in plenty from every place. Then, it turned ungrateful to the bounties of Allah; so, Allah made it taste hunger and terror (cast over it) like a garment in return of what its people used to do. [113]

COMMENTARY: The similitude mentioned in this verse is general and universal. It does not relate to a particular habitation. During the Prophet's time there was a famine in Makkah al-Mukarramah for seven years so much so that they were compelled to eat animal carcass and filth. Then, the chiefs came to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) with the plea that those who had committed disbelief and disobedience against his call were all grown-up men. Women and children were innocent.
Thereupon, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) arranged to have food supplies for them sent from Madinah al-Taiyyibah. (Mazhari)

Abu Sufyan, while still in his state of Kufr, requested the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)... "You teach kindness to relatives and mercy and forgiveness. Here are your people standing on the brink of destruction. Please pray to Allah for the removal of this famine from us. Thereupon, the Holy
Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) prayed for them and the famine was gone. (Qurtubi)

The Accepted Few

From the north, south, east and west
The chosen few have begun their quest

The memories they will forever treasure
Countless sacrifice for Allah's pleasure

A journey that will cause evil to fall
Indeed, they were not sent, they answered the call

Millions around the world will congregate
To profess one true, pure faith

The excitement builds in every heart
To thread the footsteps of Ebrahim's (A.S.) path

Among them, a lucky few that wont return
Forever their spirit of martydom will burn

Even though, Eid with the family they will miss
It means nothing, for the journey of Hajj is priceless

The waiting list for this epic journey forms a long que
But i have hope, one day i will be from the accepted few

As a member of an Internet awareness survey team, we had visited a home. The unruly owner asked, "Tell me the difference between a washing machine & the Internet?” When I was cursing my luck, my colleague answered, "The former washes your clothing and the latter washes off your brain.
