Ramadan: Ayah of the Day #18

Today’s ayah is a warning, a reminder to roll up our sleeves and be ready to face the inevitable Day. Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness. (Al Anbaya 21:1) In this ayah Allah swt reminds us of the arrival of the inevitable Day. The Day when no mother shall…

Ramadan: Ayah of the Day #10

Today’s ayah is as apt as yesterday’s. It is directed to Adam (as) and Eve, when they were asked to leave the Jannah and dwell in the earth. However, as it is with Quran, it is as much applicable to us, even today, as it was then when our parents started life on earth. The…
