Wal ‘ashr. Innal insaana la fii khusr. Illal ladziina aamanuu wa ‘amilush shaalihaati wa tawaashau bil haqqi wa tawaashau bish shabr.

I swear by the time. Most surely man is in loss. Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience. (Quran Surah Al-Asr 1-3)

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. ~ Hal Borland

As I believe.. there’s always hope for a change.. to the better path, of course.. Amiin.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity.
And its first chapter is New Year’s Day. ~ Edith L. Pierce

Happy New Hijriyah Year 1429H
