May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth. She finds a remote grass field near a strong-flowing river. This seems a safe place. Suddenly labour pains begin. At the same moment, dark clouds gather around above & lightning starts a forest fire. She looks to her left & sees a hunter with his bow extended pointing at her. To her right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her.

What can the pregnant deer do?
She is in labour!

What will happen? Will the deer survive? Will she give birth to a fawn? Will the fawn survive? Will she perish to the hunters’ arrow? Will she die a horrible death at the hands of the hungry lion approaching her?

She is constrained by the fire on the one side and the flowing river on the other and boxed in by her natural predators.

What does she do?
She focuses on giving birth to a new life.

The sequence of events that follows are:

- Lightning strikes suddenly & blinds the hunter.
- He releases the arrow which zips past the deer & strikes the hungry lion.
- It starts to rain heavily, & the forest fire is slowly doused by the rain.
- The deer gives birth to a healthy fawn.

In our life too, there are moments of choice when we are confronted on all sides with negative thoughts and possibilities. Maybe we can learn from the deer. The priority of the deer, in that given moment, was simply to give birth to a baby fawn. The rest was not in her hands and any action or reaction that changed her focus would have likely resulted in death or disaster.

Abdullah bin Mas'ud Radiyallahu Anhu reports: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam fasted for three days at the beginning of every month, and he very seldom did not fast on Friday". (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: One has been persuaded in many Ahaadith to observe Saum for three days in every month. The Thawaab (reward) for every good deed is tenfold, therefore the fasting of three days will add up to the Thawaab of thirty days. In this manner it will be as if one has fasted for one's whole life.

The second point in the above Hadith is the fasting on Fridays. From this Hadith it is found that the fast of Fridays were given importance, but in another Hadith it has been prohibited to fast on Friday only. For this reason some of the Ulama, due to the above Hadith are of the opinion that it is Mustahab to fast on Friday and some Ulama due to the Hadith wherein it has been prohibited, are of the opinion that it is Makruh to fast on Friday only.

Lemon garlic chicken recipe

Delightful chicken with garlic cloves, vinegar and pepper garnished with lemon, and basil. Ingredients:
4 chicken Breast Halves (skinless and boneless)
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 tblsp Lemone Juice
1 tsp Paprika
Salt and Pepper according to taste
2 tblsp Margarine or Butter
½ tsp Lemon Zest (grated)

Drizzle chicken with salt, paprika and pepper. In a skillet melt butter or margarine over medium-high heat. Combine chicken to skillet when pan becomes hot. Fry chicken on each side till it is slightly browned: it takes about 2-3minutes. Place the chicken on a baking sheet. Sprinkle half of the lemon juice over the chicken. Bake it in a preheated oven to 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Mix garlic to the hot pan and fry till it appears brown in color; it will take about 1 to 2 minutes. Combine lemon zest to the pan after 2 minutes. Reduce by half, then cover it and set aside. Combine lemon juice over the chicken once again. Pour the remaining lemon juice over the chicken once again. Bake for another 5 minutes. Take it out. Place chicken over dish of rice. Spoon the sauce on it.
