The Lightning

“And among His wonders is this: He displays before you the lightning, giving rise to [both] fear and hope, and sends down water from the skies, giving life thereby to the earth after it had been lifeless: in this, behold, there are messages indeed for people who use their reason!” ~ Holy Quran 30:24 (M.…Read more The Lightning

Almost everyone turns to God during those troubled times… God loves it when we remember Him in the good times too. 🙏🏻☺️ Allahumma salli ala sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala ali sayyidina Muhammadin wa barik wa sallim.
