Desafío del Corán Dia 4

¡Acordaos de Mí, que Yo Me acordaré de vosotros! Surah La Vaca (2:152) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Short, sweet and to the point. Surah Asr


One of the shortest surahs in the Quran but one of the prolific. In tafsir Ibn Kathir it is said that the sahabah/ companions would not leave each other until they recited Surah Asr and gave Salaams (the greetings) always reminding each other to enjoin the good and forbid the evil and to have patience Alhamdulillah. 

Surah Al Asr 

وَالْعَصْرِ

إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ

إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ

=====================

1.I swear by the time,

2.Most surely man is in loss,

3.Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience.

=====================

1. ¡Por la tarde!

2. En verdad, el hombre camina hacia su perdición,

3. Excepto quienes crean, obren bien, se recomienden mutuamente la verdad y se recomienden mutuamente la paciencia.

Ramadan Day 20- Iftar Spanish Style ¡Bon Provecho!

أَمَّنْ هَٰذَا الَّذِي هُوَ جُندٌ لَّكُمْ يَنصُرُكُم مِّن دُونِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ إِنِ الْكَافِرُونَ إِلَّا فِي غُرُورٍ

20.Or who is it that will be a host for you to assist you besides the Beneficent Allah? The unbelievers are only in deception.

20. ¿En quién tendréis un soporte que os auxilie, sino en el Misericordioso? Los incrédulos no están seducidos sino por un engaño.

After a long day of fasting it was nice to break fast with family and home made #arepas #tacos y #guacamole. And even though we are #boriquen we definitely love eating food from other Latin cultures.

 We had a good chuckle when I told her I am constantly telling people, No I am not Mexican, Yes I am Boriqua, No tacos are not part of my culture. BUT I am from California EVERYONE eats tacos. Lol

My grandmother started off the taco craze! Then it was passed on to my mother. Or maybe vice versa. All I know is that Growing  up we ate tacos, arroz con gandules y Maduros. That was dinner for us. It was a staple! 

My sister in law made the arepas and I finished making the tacos. So basically  arepa is a flat bread made from cornmeal. Water, salt , butter is added and then mushed together into a dough. My sister in law formed them into circles and grilled them until brown and then fried them. Usually people fry them. Then you cut them open and stuff them with whatever toppings you have. We had chicken, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce. They were so good! Alhamdulillah. 

As we continued to cook and eat. I kept having the same thought. This is what Islam is about. Appreciating other people’s culture and food. And not losing who you are as a person. In Islam I can be Muslim and retain my culture and food. This is who I am and I am proud of it!

Now that I am talking of food I cannot help to think about my friends chicken and Molé. Que Rico! 

Thank you for allowing me to share another day of fasting with you. I hope you enjoyed!

Ramadan Reflection days 18&19- The Last 10 days 



وَلَقَدْ كَذَّبَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ نَكِيرِ

18.And certainly those before them rejected (the truth), then how was My disapproval.

18. Ya habían negado la verdad los que os precedieron. Y cómo fue Mi reprobación.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ فَوْقَهُمْ صَافَّاتٍ وَيَقْبِضْنَ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلَّا الرَّحْمَٰنُ إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ بَصِيرٌ

19.Have they not seen the birds above them expanding (their wings) and contracting (them)? What is it that withholds them save the Beneficent Allah? Surely He sees everything.

19. ¿Es que no han visto las aves sobre ellos y cómo mueven sus alas? No las sostiene sino el Misericordioso. Realmente Él todo lo ve.

Bismillah

Wow two more days gone. We have entered the last 10 days of Ramadan. During these last 10 days we ask Allah azzawajal (The Most Exalted) protection from th hellfire. 

By this time of the month. We are exhausted mentally and physically, BUT spiritually we are awake. We spent 30 days praying everyday. We spent 30 days reading Quran and making extra prayers. Some days we stayed up All night as a family praying and spending time with each other. Seeking the love and mercy of Allah. 

I am really impressed and happy about my children and their dedication to Ramadan. Not breaking their fast nor sneaking to eat food. Kids will be kids and right now this is training for them. 

I pray we are able to see another year of Ramadan and Insha Allah as a family we can do even better. 

Thank you for sharing another day of Ramadan with me! 

¡Disfruta!
