Qur'an Readings

THEME: One community member is considering moving to San Jose in order to please "the shadow"... this would be bad.  Sometimes it is necessary to waste three years of your life in order to learn the hard way.  When you please the shadow, there is no end - - -  more and more shadows will need to be pleased.

Another member was warned years ago not to marry her.  Four years later and many many fights, they divorced.  When will you pay heed?!?

Side Topics / Branches: 
Chase towards the light and the shadow is bound to follow you !

YUSUFALI: Do you not see how Allaah sets forth a parable? - A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavens,- of its Lord. So Allaah sets forth parables for men, in order that they may receive admonition.
