Letter From Prisoner

Cont’d from page 3

cious goal, it is a small price indeed for such a great treasure.

The Quran teaches us that if a disbeliever possesses all the treasures of the world, even twice as much, he would readily give it all up in exchange for a believer’s achievement (10:54, 13:18, 39:47).

If you are a prisoner who discovered the true path to God, and have decided to follow God’s true religion, you are far more fortunate than a billionaire who has failed to discover God. If you discovered Islam in prison, then incarceration was the greatest blessing that ever happened to you.

It is established that this life is insignificant when compared to the real life of the eternal Hereafter. Mathematically, when you divide any number by infinity, the product is ZERO. So, even a thousand years in this world equal a zero when compared to the infinite Hereafter.

With this Quranic understanding, we realize that it doesn’t really matter whether we are poor or rich in this world, fat or thin, tall or short, black or white, male or female, beautiful or ugly. This life, no matter how long, passes like the blink of an eye (16:77).

When God loves someone, He may afflict him or her with a temporary problem just to get his or her attention. (6:42, 7:94). Incarceration may be God’s way of blessing you, and getting your attention. It means that God cares about you. If you respond positively to God’s care, and decide to join His kingdom, then He makes it up to you manifold. He will appoint you a KING ON EARTH. (24:55).

There is one important catch: you must be absolutely positive that you have found the pure Islam, not the Islam that is distorted by traditions and superstitions.

KINDNESS

[2:263] Kind words and compassion are better than a charity that is followed by insult. GOD is Rich, Clement.

Kindness observes no rules
and is not shy.

Kindness offers a hand
and tries to help.

Kindness stands in the open
and is open.

Kindness is gentle and compassionate.

Kindness is a sign of strength,
not weakness.

Kindness extends from me to you
and beyond.

Kindness opens doors
and breaks down walls.

Kindness and good deeds are partners.

Kindness gently changes people
and things.

Kindness brings understanding.

A simple act of kindness
can alter the future...FOREVER.

Eula

[24:20] GOD showers you with His grace and mercy. GOD is Most Kind towards the believers, Most Merciful.

[52:26-8] They will say, “We used to be kind and humble among our people.  GOD has blessed us, and has spared us the agony of ill winds. We used to implore Him; He is the Most Kind, Most Merciful.”
