AND SO, partake of all the lawful, good things which God has provided for you as sustenance, and render thanks unto God for His blessings, if it is [truly] Him that you worship.  

  -- an-Nahl 16:114 as rendered by Muhammad Asad

فَكُلُوا مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ حَلَالًا طَيِّبًا وَاشْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ

This is today's comment:

The Qur'an tells us, over and over, to be grateful to our Creator
In much of the West today is a thanks-giving holiday.
Let us not fall into the trap of reserving our thanks to such a limited time.
Every morning say "thank You for another day".

This is an OPINION. 
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!

IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
This is today's comment:

We are reminded often to practice patience
(al-Inshirah 94:5-6, al-'Ankabut 29:2-3, al-Baqarah 2:45, just for starters)
Does this mean we have to stand in the face of all troubles?
No, it means that patience must be our first option,
then we ask Allah for guidance.

This is an OPINION. 
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!

Today's Ayat for Wednesday, 2018-11-14 / 06 Rabi` al-awwal 1440

If you get hurt, certainly others have also experienced injuries. We have made people pass through the different turns of history so that God would know the true believers, have some of you bear witness to the people's deeds, {God does not love the unjust}  

  -- al-Imran 3:140 as rendered by Muhammad Sarwar

إِن يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِّثْلُهُ وَتِلْكَ الْأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ

IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
This is today's comment:

Many read this ayah and consult sources that say it refers to a battle long ago
Allah is not so limited in His revelations
This ayah speaks to EACH OF US
This ayay speaks to HERE AND NOW
We each feel 'injuries' as we struggle in one test or another
But we are not alone in this; many are tested severely
And Allah is always near

This is an OPINION. 
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!

This is today's comment:

It is human nature to blame someone or something else for our troubles.
Sometimes we are even half-right in this;
  but first we really need to clean up our own life;
    then, and only then, can we look at outside influences.

This is an OPINION. 
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!

And they have been asked no more than this— to worship God, offer Him sincere devotion, be truthful, establish prayer, and give zakat*, and that is the way of life which is right and straight.  

  -- al-Baiyinah 98:5 as rendered by A.L. Bilal Muhammad et al (2018)

وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ حُنَفَاءَ وَيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَذَٰلِكَ دِينُ الْقَيِّمَةِ

Islam in our daily lives is this
  Trust God
  Pray regularly
  Clean up our own act

There are a lot more details, but holding on to these things will get us there.
