Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

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

"We have made it a reminder [of Our infinite power, and of the fire of hell] and a benefit for travellers in deserts..." 56:73)

"So, proclaim the purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent..." 56:74

COMMENTARY: The last answer is summarized thus in verse [73] "We have made it a reminder [of Our infinite power, and of the fire of hell] and a benefit for travelers in deserts..." 56:73)

The word Muqween is derived from the infinitive 'Iqwa' and it comes from the root-word 'Qiwa' which means 'waste, barren land, ruin or desert'. Thus the word 'Muqwt' means 'a traveler or a wayfarer of a desert who alights to prepare his meals'. The verse purports to say that all these creations are the result of Allah's power and wisdom.

("So, proclaim the purity of the name of your Lord, the Magnificent..." 56:74)

The logical and rational conclusion of the above considerations should be for man to believe in the All-Encompassing Divine Power and in His Oneness, and declare the Purity of the Great Lord; for that is the way to express His gratitude.

CRPS / RSD Awareness Month

Second after second, nay moment after moment, Battling sensations more powerful than torment.

Immeasurable intensity and incomparable inconsistency just a part of our day-to-day lives, Frustration, helplessness, and dependency constantly scarring us like scalding knives.

But still we rise, still we smile, still we try our best to portray flair and style. Still we fight, from day to night, anywhere and everywhere, trying our best to shine bright.

Comparing our pain to that of others, trust me, if only you knew, What we're going through every waking second of our lives would turn even Hercules blue. Read more

Because I had forgotten the dates for a number of my friends and relatives' birthdays and anniversaries, I decided to compile a list on the computer and have the dates highlighted on screen when the machine was turned on.

I went to a number of computer stores to find a software program that would do the job, but had no luck at the first few. I finally found one where the clerk seemed experienced.

"Can you recommend something that will remind me of birthdays and anniversaries?" I asked.

"Have you tried a wife?" he replied.
