From a forwarded email, not sure if it's a true event or not but definitely worth a read...


A regular Mosque goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to Mosque.


"I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 Lectures. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Imams are wasting theirs by giving Lectures at all."


This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher.


"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this:


They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to Mosque for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"


When you are DOWN to nothing.... Allah is UP to something!


Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!
