Selections from the Quran: We are returning to our Lord…

They said, ‘We do not care! We are returning to our Lord. We remain hopeful that our Lord will forgive us our mistakes for being the first of the muminun (believer).’

We revealed to Musa (Moses): ‘Travel with Our slaves by night. You will certainly be pursued.’ Pharaoh sent marshals into the cities: ‘These people are a small group and we find them irritating and we constitute a vigilant majority.’

We expelled them from gardens and springs, from treasures and a splendid situation. So it was! And We bequeathed them to the tribe of Israel.

So they pursued them towards the east. And when the two hosts came into sight of one another Musa’s companions said, ‘We will surely be overtaken!’ He said, ‘Never! My Lord is with me and He will guide me.’

So We revealed to Musa, ‘Strike the sea with your staff.’ And it split in two, each part like a towering cliff. And We brought the others right up to it. We rescued Musa and all those who were with him. Then We drowned the rest.

There is certainly a Sign in that yet most of them are not muminun.

Truly your Lord is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.

(Quran 26: 50-68)

Islamic Quotations for Thought: If the forms of phenomenal beings are embedded in the mirror of the heart…

If the forms of phenomenal beings are embedded in the mirror of the heart, how can it be illuminated? If it is fettered by its appetites, how can it travel to Allah? If it is not purified of the great impurity of its heedlessness, how can it aspire to enter the presence of Allah? If it has not turned away in regret from its lapses, how can it hope to grasp the subtleties of secret knowledge?- Ibn Ata’llah

Quranic Verses for Reflection: Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials)…

Or think you that you will enter Paradise without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? They were afflicted with severe poverty and ailments and were so shaken that even the Messenger and those who believed along with him said, ‘When (will come) the Help of Allah?’ Yes! Certainly, the Help of Allah is near! Quran 2:214

Alif-Lam-Mim. Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: ‘We believe’, and will not be tested. And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make known those who are true, and and will certainly make known those who are liars.

– Quran 29:1-3
