 MB03-Humiliation is impossible to forget! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

[Quick links] [Pause] Many of us who have undergone humiliation know how difficult it is to forget and forgive. We may be very righteous, endowed with clarity, broad minded. But still, if we are humiliated, that too over and over again, we hardly forgive the person who has humiliated us.  That is exactly what happened to Dhritarastra.

She has done a great job. Thank you Padmini.  Today, I am going to start another interesting series. My voice is almost fine now. But occasionally you may find some distortion. Please don’t mind.

Picking some really illuminating verses from the Holy Quran, I have tried to show how lofty these fundamental ideas are.

 QV19.....Faith cannot be forced on others | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

[Quick links]  [Pause] There are people who believe that Islam was spread at the point of a sword. There are even some Muslims, who think that their faith should be forced on others.

In a previous post, I gave reasons why we should surrender to God. This idea of surrender as a chosen and inevitable path, is not something new to Quran or Islam. Even before prophet Muhammad, many ancient great men talked about the same path.
