"Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life"

"Say: "Shall we tell you of those who lose most in respect of their deeds?
"Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life. While they thought that they were acquiring good by their works?
They are those who deny the Signs of their Lord and the fact of their having to meet Him (in the Hereafter): vain will be their works, nor shall We, on the Day of Judgment, give them any Weight. "

[Al Kahf :103-105]

Every Friday as I sit and read Surat AlKahf I stop at these verses... and read them again ... and think how many people in this world we live in fit into this description... especially with what's been going on lately in Lebanon... I'm not good with words... and have been silent lately ... can't really find the words to express what I've been feeling... all I can say is I've been trying to do what I can... God bless you Lebanon...

"Our Lord!, Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure. "
[Aal Imran:8]
