  • SISTERS TALK
Sister Sara shared with us her reflections on an event that happened yesterday.  The water went out in her apt for over 9 hours.  Truly water is a blessing that we take for granted and that we should realise the small stresses we have in our lives are not so Major or deserving of such panic.  Enjoy life, Appreciate Allah’s blessings.

196 - "How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You. I bear witness that None has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."


سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka.


If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.  If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
