30 Ramadan 2012: ‘Believe and Do Good’

Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought. – Lord of the Rings (Pt. 1)

For today, we were left with one last thing that completed the whole picture for us, the need for a guide … a guide that gave us that sense of inner peace, a guide that makes sense, and a guide that is perfectly interconnected with clear wisdom. For us, our 30 days discovery took us on a journey to keep an open mind, understand and not to judge, to listen and not to speak, and to see how the pieces of the puzzle fit.

What we found was that the Quran (equivalent to the Bible and Torah) told us the past, explained the present and forwarned the future in perfect unison, taking the whole 603 pages to bring forth the complete wisdom it contained, primarily coming down to two matters:

‘ Believe and Do Good ‘

It just kept coming up … believe and do good … believe and do good … believe and do good … so, we now hope that we may remain steadfast in our faith that god exists, be given the ability to do good, anywhere and everywhere we go, bringing ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and our societies inner peace and joy with the time that is given to us.

Happy Eid / Eid Kareem / Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating and not.

May this Eid bring joy to all and may it be a small reason to bring joy to others, children and those young and old, of all faiths and all colors.

We wanted to also thank all our awesome followers, new and returning, who have made this worthwhile.

With that, we end by saying that only god knows best.
