Eat And Drink Moderately

Children Are Our Future

eat and drink moderately.

Therefore, you shall eat from God’s provisions everything that is lawful and good, and be appreciative of God’s blessings if you do worship Him alone. (16:114)

In His infinite wisdom, God teaches us and tests us. As Ramadan approaches, how many of us are willing to make a covenant with God to change the way we think about food and exercise in order to lose weight and heal and strengthen our bodies? Can we do it, in submission to God, to show our appreciation by following His guidance? The coming Ramadan is a timely opportunity to make the choice to follow God’s mandate.

O children of Adam, you shall be clean and dress nicely when you go to the masjid. And eat and drink moderately; Surely, He does not love the gluttons (7:31)

...and do not waste anything. He does not love the wasters. (6:141)

God willing, we are hoping to put together some booklets which will consist of collections of Quranic study lessons and articles for our children. Two age groups are being considered, ages 5-10, and 10-15. However, we need the cooperation and input of all our readers. We need some commitment from you, whether you have children in that age group or not.

The articles or lessons do not have to be long. They can be from a few paragraphs to a couple of pages long. They can be in any subject that will enlighten our children. They can be hand written, typed, or in a computer disk. When you send in an article to us, we can either reorganize it or keep it in the same format received, depending on the readability of the article. We prefer that we can take your contribution, and include in the

booklet without us editing it. That saves us time, and also we can keep the originality of your work.

If you send us any contribution, God willing, we will send you the booklet free, when the booklet is published. Thus, if you send us multiple contributions, you can get more free booklets. But seriously, without your help, we cannot complete this project. Remember, it is our children who will soon shoulder the responsibility of keeping and spreading the God’s message. Don’t let the time run out.

You can send your articles as well as any other correspondence to
