As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.

Summary

Today’s selection is from Surah 26, Ash-Shu‘arã or the Poets, verses 105-122. These verses relate the story of Prophet Noah, his dialogue with his people and the subsequent destruction of the disbelievers. I chose this selection because Prophet Noah’s story is about starting over. Maybe you can’t destroy every bad thing in your world but think about how you can start over, how you can purge any negative influences and make your life better in the coming year, spiritually and otherwise.
