The Perfect New Year’s Resolution – from the Qur’an

January 1, 2013

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

And vie with one another to attain to your Sustainer’s forgiveness and to a paradise as vast as the heavens and the earth, which has been readied for the God-conscious who spend (in His way) in time of plenty and in time of hardship, and hold in check their anger, and pardon their fellow men because God loves the doer of good; and who, when they have committed a shameful deed or have (otherwise) sinned again themselves, remember God and pray that their sins be forgiven – for who but God could forgive sins? And do not knowingly persist in doing whatever (wrong) they have done. These it is who shall have as their reward forgiveness from their Sustainer, and gardens through which running waters flow, therein to reside: and how excellent a reward for those who labor!

– Qur’an 3:133-136


Ya Haqq!
