Today's Ayat for Sunday, 2020-10-11 / 24 Safar 1442  

 

But whoever repents after their wrongdoing and mends their ways, Allah will surely turn to them in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
  -- al-Ma`ida 5:39
فَمَن تَابَ مِن بَعْدِ ظُلْمِهِ وَأَصْلَحَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يَتُوبُ عَلَيْهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيم

Commentary/example:

Forgive yourself. Maybe you're not where you want to be in life. You've made mistakes. It's part of being human. You don't have a time machine so torturing yourself over things in the past does no one -- not you or anyone else -- any good.

Forgive yourself, learn the lessons, and move forward.

BUT LEARN THAT LESSON.

 

 

Today's Ayat for Thursday, 2020-10-08 / 21 Safar 1442 

For, [true] servants of the Most Gracious are [only] they who walk gently on earth,
and who, whenever the foolish address them, reply with [words of] peace.
  -- al-Furqan 25:63
   as rendered by Muhammad Asad

وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامً

Commentary/example:

When we encounter hate content in the internet, we can make it a point to not participate in it even if we have a valid counterpoint to offer.
People spreading hate are looking for attention, not a healthy conversation.
All  we do by offering a view is fan the flames further.
