A reminder to find the beauty, even in hardship or sadness.

“According to the Qur’anic paradigm, all beings in the universe are letters/signs (ayahs). They are written and created to explain the meaning of God through their symbolic meaning. In other words, all beings make known the Attributes of the Creator. With sickness and health, we come to know The Healer. With hunger and food, we come to know The Sustainer. With afflictions, we come to know The Compassionate. With our wrong doings, we come to know The Forgiver. And with our weaknesses, we come to know The All-Powerful. When we look at everything around us from this perspective, life becomes an enjoyable and adventurous quest for The One. Everything and every occasion become special letters and gifts from Him whom we are created to know, love, and worship…” (Tatari, Surrendering to God. Pp 12-13)
