This is, according to my dashboard, the 200th post.
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَى شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنَ النَّارِ فَأَنْقَذَكُمْ مِنْهَا كَذَلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

Different people will look at different things with different light, depending on how you view the world.
Let's take a simple object, for example a tree.
"Hey look! Let's cut down that tree and make paper. We'll get lots of money for that."
A communist will say
"Comrade! That tree, if we sell it to the capitalist, we'll get money to distribute evenly amongst all our comrades."
An environmentalist will say
"What profits?? That tree is home to all the birds and squirrels. Cut me down first before you cut this tree."
How about us? I mean, i don't know about you, but i hope that after following this blog for a while, you'll get some idea of how to look at things with the light of islam.
"That tree, it is a creation of Allah, and it brings shade for those who sit underneath it. It drops fruit when people throw it with stones. When the lumberjack cuts it down, he sells it to feed his family. The paper from the tree is used to write down knowledge. So much benefits from a thing that could not even move. We humans move a lot, talk a lot, yet what do we give to the world. Allah is magnificent."
How do you look at things?
p/s: I like this poster..its a great illustrator of how we see things.

Today, we have a chance to take action.
A concerted and intensive action to create a new revolution and rid the world once and for all of injustice!

Basically, old copies of the Qur'an were burnt and their ashes were going to be disposed of in the sea.
And the choppy waters turned calm when they threw the ashes into the sea.
1) Even the sea turned calm receiving the qur'an. But we still don't want to read it.
2) The qur'an appears in the Malaysian media if:
- americans burned the qur'an
- pages of qur'an suddenly go missing
- youth trample on the qur'an in a show of disrespect
But rarely do we hear about the message of the qur'an in the media. Is it just an ornament to keep away spirits and jinn (genies)?
Or a guide to a complete system of living, now and in the hereafter?
You see, we 'step' on the qur'an everyday, without even realising it.
