Assalamu'alaikum w.b.t dear akhi and ukhti,
brothers and sisters, fellow friends near and far =)
How's Thursday for a start? Have you taken your lunch?
Hope all is well with you and beloved families.
I just wanna share which I learned about these 2 verses from Surah Yunus Ayat 12 and 19.

It's amazing sometimes to see how many human beings, never take a moment to feel and breathe the air, watch the sun rising, clouds dispersing, birds singing/chirping etc. We fail to take such moments to thought or heart, and to thank our creator for placing it there for our sight, our wonder.
Perhaps one day when it is gone, we totally forgot how it feels to have one before..
I think in this fast pace life and environment where money and material are much important, we lack and at a point lost the whole connection once we had with Allah SWT ever since we are young.
But when obstacles or calamity or even problems come knocking at our doors, we supplicate and pray so that He takes it away..but what about after that?
Are we being grateful these days?
Are we putting this living + business of this worldly life a reason not to do HIS commands?
Maybe we should altogether take a step back,
take this weekend to think and be grateful...
and consistently make supplication and prayers...
For this 2014 has been a real challenge to us all...and indeed it is a sign for us to get together as 1 ummah.
Just like this Surah Yunus clearly states that we are all as 1 :
