Faith Friday: Listen

Friday, August 05, 2011


I was having a conversation with Hana Tajima about her conversion to Islam when I said, 
"I love the Qur'an because it's always revealing itself."

What I meant by that is whenever I read the Holy Qur'an I always find something new that takes my breath
 away. I came across this verse last night and it hasn't been off my mind ever since. 

Just thinking about it makes me speechless.
It's so true.
How can we expect God to answer our prayers if we ourselves do not listen to Him?
"Let them also, with a will, listen to My call and believe in Me"
Does anyone else feel the power of these words by Allah? 

Is it just me?

its the same question that i ask myself-Is it just me?

coz i found the beauty in the recitation of muhammad taha al junayd and be able to memorize a few surahs by now.One of the surah i read everyday is Al-waqiah.

Beautiful post. It's too true. Every time I read the Qur'an I learn something new. My faith increases.

it's definitely not just you. I understand what you mean. The Quran takes my breathe away each time and I hope it continues to do the same throughout my life. =)
