blast is sounded on the Trumpet, 14. And the earth is moved, and its mountains, and they are crushed to powder at one stroke,- 15. On that Day shall the (Great) Event come to pass. 16. And the sky will be rent asunder, for it will that Day be flimsy, 17. And the angels will be on its sides, and eight will, that Day, bear the Throne of thy Lord above them. 18. That Day shall ye be brought to Judgment: not an act of yours that ye hide will be hidden. 19. Then he that will be given his Record in his right hand will say: “Ah here! Read ye my Record! 20. “I did really understand that my Account would (One Day) reach me!”21. And he will be in a life of Bliss, 22. In a Garden on high, 23. The Fruits whereof (will hang in bunches) low and near. 24. “Eat ye and drink ye, with full

satisfaction; because of the (good) that ye sent before you, in the days that are gone!” 25. And he that will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: “Ah! Would that my Record had not been given to me! 26. “And that I had never realised how my account (stood)! 27. “Ah! Would that (Death) had made an end of me! 28. “Of no profit to me has been my wealth!29. “My power has perished from me!”… 30. (The stern command will say): “Seize ye him, and bind ye him, 31. “And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. 32. “Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! 33. “This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. 34. “And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! 35. “So no friend hath he here this Day. 36. “Nor hath

he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, 37. “Which none do eat but those in sin.” 38. So I do call to witness what ye see, 39. And what ye see not, 40. That this is verily the word of an honoured apostle; 41. It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! 42. Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive. 43. (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds. 44. And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name, 45. We should certainly seize him by his right hand, 46. And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: 47. Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath). 48. But verily this is a Message for the Allah.fearing. 49. And We certainly know that there are amongst you those that

reject (it). 50. But truly (Revelation) is a cause of sorrow for the Unbelievers. 51. But verily it is Truth of assured certainty. 52. So glorify the name of thy Lord Most High. One part of the Qu ran really got my attention: Volume 9, Book 92, Number 450, Narrated ‘Amr bin Al-’As: That he heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “If a judge gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is correct (i.e. agrees with Allah and His Apostle’s verdict) he will receive a double reward, and if he gives a verdict according to the best of his knowledge and his verdict is wrong, (i.e. against that of Allah and His Apostle) even then he will get a reward .” This quote is especially important to me because it is the single most excerpt that makes me admire this

For example: I do a math problem and show neither any equations nor drawings, but if I get the answer right I am rewarded. I doubt NASA cares how calculations were conceived when an emergency landing is necessary and the astronauts make it to the Atlantic in one piece. The fact that Islam really encourages trying your hardest really appeals to me as a strong inspirational part of their scripture. I find many other things

interesting about Islam. First, I am amazed by the entire commitment by Islamic people. Besides the total faith aspect, which I know personally, is very hard, they have to pray 5 times a day, when the sun rises and sets, and all their meals. They have 4 different ways that they must pray in, Salh , and all towards Mecca. It just amazes me that someone would do that every day without ever questioning oneself. They too must wash there feet, hands and face, before and after praying. In every person s life they must also make a journey to Mecca, over the first ten days of dhu, in the Muslim year. They can go by anything from plane to boat to camel backs. They must visit the kabah, where Muhammed once prayed to Allah, and run around the matf seven times, a roadway surrounding
