i just checked my bountiful mail in my mailbox, when i found this interesting email.
so i referred to my quran translation, just to double check and make myself clear.
i haven’t checked the time accuracy but let say we assume it’s from a reliable and correct source.
but please..dun get any wrong idea about this. i dun mean to provoke the issue but i honestly think we all should take the lesson. things happen for some good reasons. and the lesson may be addressed to all of us, not just the unfortunates.
He knows best. wallahualam.
