Today's Ayat for Wednesday, 2019-05-22 / 17 Ramadan 1440

Each has guardian angels before him and behind him, who watch him at God's command. God does not change the condition of a peoples lot, unless they change what is in their hearts. But when God decrees punishment for a people, none can ward it off. Besides Him, they have no protector.  

  -- ar-Ra`d 13:11 as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan

لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ

God would never withdraw a favour that He had conferred upon a people unless they change what is in their hearts. God is all hearing and all-knowing.  

  -- al-Anfal 8:53 as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan

وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ

This is today's comment:

Twice our Creator reminds us that our selves and our actions are reflected in His help
We are told this both positively and negatively
His blessings are bestowed when we make the effort to change ourselves for the good
His blessings can be removed should we change ourselves for the worse

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

Salaam and Jumu'ah Mubarak from IslamAwakened

In the following link you will find a spreadsheet ranking many countries on how well they adhere to clearly understood Islamic values.

In many (most?) cases "western" nations far outrank Muslim-majority ones.

This Index SHOULD spur each of us, and our fellow Muslims, into remedial action.

Sadly,  will not most claim to be offended, and then turn away?

Today's Ayat for Wednesday, 2019-03-27 / 20 Rajab 1440

O YOU who have attained to faith! No men shall deride [other] men: it may well be that those [whom they deride] are better than themselves; and no women [shall deride other] women: it may well be that those [whom they deride] are better than themselves. And neither shall you defame one another, nor insult one another by [opprobrious] epithets: evil is all imputation of iniquity after [one has attained to] faith; and they who [become guilty thereof and] do not repent - it is they, they who are evildoers!  

  -- al-Hujurat 49:11 as rendered by Muhammad Asad

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ وَلَا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ بِئْسَ الِاسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الْإِيمَانِ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

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

The Qur'an tell us that our Creator will judge our actions, our intentions, and our worth
We are not told to take over His role in the latter
Another's actions may require evaluation in many circumstances
We do not have the knowledge or tools to judge that person's path to those actions

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

This is today's comment:

The Qur'an tell us that our Creator can and will help us reach our good goals
But we have to do our part
No one is going to come to our door to hand us our life's dream
We have to make the effort while putting our trust in Him!

Today's Ayat for Wednesday, 2019-03-20 / 13 Rajab 1440

Do you not see that God's limitless glory is exalted by all in the heavens and the earth, even by the birds with wings outspread [in flight]? Each [of them] knows how to pray to and glorify [Him], and God well knows that they do.  

  -- an-Nur 24:41 as rendered by Safi Kaskas

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالطَّيْرُ صَافَّاتٍ كُلٌّ قَدْ عَلِمَ صَلَاتَهُ وَتَسْبِيحَهُ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ بِمَا يَفْعَلُونَ

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

The Qur'an reminds us to pray regularly
As formal Muslims we have special prayers for specific times - salaat
Let us not fall into the trap of NOT praying the rest of the time
All of our deeds should contain gratitude to Him

This is an OPINION.
