  1. Fast 14 – verse 13:14
     
    To Him is due the true prayer. And those to whom they pray besides Him give them no answer, but (they are) like one who stretches forth his two hands towards water that it may reach his mouth, but it will not reach it. And the prayer of the disbelievers is only wasted.
     
    Comment: This verse alludes to the phenomenon of Mirage which is an illusion of water. Travelers in the desert who have run out of water supply are known to die by exhausting themselves when their thirst forces them to chase towards any false hope of water, a hope that emerges in all directions. Similarly, a person lost in Shirk who has run out of his spiritual resources, will seek any hope besides Allah to relieve his distress, but like chasing Mirage when he stretches forth his two hands towards water that it may reach his mouth, but it will not reach it. And the prayer of the disbelievers is only wasted.


    Life has numerous aspects to it, social, economic, moral, material, occupational etc. and on any given calendar day there are daily stressors, even while on a vacation. What this verse tell one is to seek Him alone for all hope of guidance and relief, coupled with action on one’s part.

    Thank you Dr. Aziz for bringing out these gems from Quran on a daily basis. May Allah have blessings on you and your readers. Amen.


  2. Dear Dr. Aziz – In your great Ramadan tradition of bringing out the gems from the ocean of virtue and guidance – The Quran, this year you focused wonderfully on the detailed philosophy of prayer.
     
    Your efforts parallel that of Maulana Muhammad Ali (Rahmatullah-Alaih) who similarly wrote the book “Selections from the Holy Quran” [pg-ii] for which he gave the following reason:
     

    “…my only excuse for making the “Selections” is to give an impetus to the study of the Holy Quran, so that he who tastes of the cup may turn to the sweet fountain head from which this cup is taken.”

    May Allah bless your efforts and the readers who may “taste the cup from the sweet the fountain head” and enhance their lives. Thank you.
