OVERTAKEN BY TIME

In the Name of Allāh. O, People! Think of those before you (especially the transgressors of them). Where are those who possessed great luxuries, cities and unlawfully amassed public funds?

HOW AWESOME THIS IS!

In the Name of Allāh. By Allāh, we are indeed favored with the blessing of Islam; having numerous excellent acts to be done in amassing oodles of boon from Allāh.
