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

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

Again, tell Me about the water you drink: [68]
Is it you who have brought it down from the clouds, or are We the One who sends (it) down? [69]
If We so will, We can make it bitter in taste. So why do you not offer gratitude? [70]
Now tell Me about the fire you kindle: [71]
Is it you who have originated its tree, or are We the Originator? [72]

COMMENTARY: Next to food, water is the most important thing upon which human life depends for its sustenance. Here too the Qur'an, in its inimitable style, poses the question: 'Have you considered the water you drink? Did you send it down from the clouds, or did We send it?' The answer is obvious: 'Allah'.

Fire plays a most important part in the life of man. Much of his physical comfort depends upon it. [It is a thing of great utility. In this mechanistic age life is inconceivable without the use of fire. No industry, trade or travel is possible without it. The Qur'an again, in its unique and unparalleled style, poses the question: 'Have you considered the fire you kindle? Did you make its timber to grow, or did We make it?' Here too the answer is obvious: 'Allah'. Of course, in both instances the Qur'anic answers are elaborate.

Shattered pottery
A crack in the vase
The pain and the heartache
Lingering from the past

Trust, once broken
With words left unspoken
Respect that is not present
Manners that was never learned

The lack of Morals by choices made
Behaviours so bad as if degrade
Lies and untruths told for self-gain
Over and over and yet again

Lightbulbs that are fused
Leaving you in the dark
Strangers late at night
Committing crimes in the park

Life is now fast paced
As we are all in this rat race
Speeding along
Not everyone is as strong
This is what we do, we have to carry on….

Dad rarely dresses up, so when he left the dressing room decked out in a suit and tie, he wanted to commemorate the moment.

Handing me his camera, he asked, “Mind taking a selfie of me?”
