It’s taking me a while lately to post stuff up…the days just seem terribly hectic right now, and there seems to be hardly any time to do the day’s activities, let alone blog about them 😦
My latest verses, from Surah ‘aale-Imraan, ayahs 52-74, for the Circle of Unity have to do with the story of ‘Eesa AlayhimusSalaam, where Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala addresses Sayyidina ‘Eesa by saying:
55. Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.
This is the part that captivated me the most, I think because I finally learned how to say “Allah is the best of planners” in Arabic. It’s a message of comfort and clarity to ‘Eesa AlayhimusSalaam, as well as those who believed in the message he was sent to deliver, and I loved the simplicity and clarity of it. I am not someone who enjoys getting into long-winded debates of the inter-faith nature, so I like knowing where in the Qur’aan to direct people to read when they bug me with their Jesus stuff. I hope that I am never ever of those who doubt; may Allah keep me on the path He has blessed me with, ameen.
