18 Rajab 1433(6/08/2012)

Qur'an Readings:
18:29 Say, "The truth is from your Lord": Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it): for the wrong-doers We have prepared a Fire whose (smoke and flames), like the walls and roof of a tent, will hem them in: if they implore relief they will be granted water like melted brass, that will scald their faces, how dreadful the drink! How uncomfortable a couch to recline on!

: Don't dye your beard; show the gray lest you forget life is transitory and temporary. Remind yourself each time gazing into the mirror -- I will indeed die one day; am I ready?!?

Saying you're going to do something and then not doing it is acting in the line of Satan -- he is the ultimate lier.  Keep your promises!

Long desires and big plans cause one to be put in danger.  Keep focused on the here and now.

Death is near

THEME: Satan's primary target is one's gratefulness
