  2. Umrah, also known as the lesser pilgrimage (as compared to the Hajj), means a visit, in particular, a visit to the Kaa’ba. The fact that Umrah is the lesser pilgrimage in no way diminishes its significance or reward. An Umrah can be performed anytime during the year – and what better time to perform an Umrah than in the holiest month of the Islamic year. A month where even the simplest of good deeds reap a manifold reward, an Umrah becomes an act of even greater significance. About Hajj and Umrah, Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said: “(The performance of) `Umrah is the expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise” (Bukhari 26:1). Keeping in mind the general importance of Umrah one can only imagine how much Allah Almighty will appreciate it when we perform it in the month of Ramadan. Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and for those Muslim brothers and sisters who can afford it easily, it is mandatory to perform at least once in a lifetime. And those of us who are unable to afford the Hajj or are unable to perform it for any other reason, an Umrah in Ramadan then becomes a great opportunity: According to a hadith reported by Ibn `Abbas: “Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) asked an Ansari woman (Ibn `Abbas named her but `Ata' forgot her name), ‘What prevented you from performing Hajj with us?’ She replied, ‘We have a camel and the father of so-and-so and his son (i.e. her husband and her son) rode it and left one camel for us to use for irrigation.’ He said (to her), ‘Perform `Umrah when Ramadan comes, for `Umrah in Ramadan is equal to Hajj (in reward)” (Bukhari 26:10). Thus, as one can see, Umrah performed during the holy month is synonymous with having performed the Hajj, the ultimate act of total submission to the Lord. Whosoever is unable to perform the Hajj, due to its strenuous physical demands, costs, or other personal reasons, can instead opt for performing Umrah during Ramadan, as this Hadith narrates that it is one in the same thing. Read more authenticated Best Time to Perform Umrah . However, the equivalence to Hajj may only be in terms of the blessings and while it is unable to relieve a Muslim of his or her obligation of Hajj, Umrah is still able to expiate sins and offers us an opportunity to amend our relationship with the Almighty Allah. Ibn-i-Abbas narrates from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that: “Whoever reaches Makkah in the month of Ramadan and fasts and passes his/her night worshipping as much as he can, Allah writes for him/her the reward of a hundred thousand fasting of the month of Ramadan performed outside of Makkah and Allah bestows on him/her for each day and night the reward of freeing a slave. For each day, He writes the reward of a horse's attack against the enemy on the way of Allah. And He writes for the day a hasana (good deed), and for the night a hasana.” (Ibn Majah, Manasik: 106.) So if this Ramadan you want to earn great rewards from Allah, take the opportunity and go to Makkah to perform the Umrah, it not only lessen your sins but also brings you closer to Allah and that is the ultimate reward for any Muslim.

  12. Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. On the first day of Muharram, the Islamic New Year is observed by Muslims. The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and is 11 to 12 days shorter than the solar year. Hence it is a little different from the Gregorian calendar that is used in the western nations. When compared with the Gregorian calendar, which is a solar calendar, the lunar month of Muharram shifts from year to year. The month of Muharram is of great religious significance to Islamic people the world over. It is held to be the most sacred of all the months, excluding Ramadan. The word "Muharram" is often considered synonymous with "Ashura", the tenth day of the Muharram month. "Ashura" is a highly important day for both sects of Islam - the Shias and the Sunnis. The Shia believe that Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, became a martyr at the Battle of Karbala on the tenth day of Muharram in 61 AH(680 AD). The pre-Islamic period in the Arabian peninsula was the era of warring tribes. In the absence of a strong leadership, there were conflicts and battles on minor issues. But fighting was prohibited in four months of the year. These months, of which Muharram was one, were considered sacred. Muharram is so called because it was unlawful to fight during this month; the word is derived from the word ‘haram’ meaning forbidden. This period of inactivity was a necessity in heavily decorated replicas of the tomb of the Imam and his family are made for Muharram the era of warring tribes. The tradition was maintained even after the advent of Islam, though provisions to accommodate and accept war in special situations, like a threat to the sovereignty of an empire, were introduced. The gory battle of Karbala was fought against this law and tradition of Islam. The inhabitants on the banks of rivers Euphrates and Tigris were traditional rivals. Their animosity was contained to some extent by Muhammad. But when his son-in-law Hazrat Ali was the Caliph(Muslim civil and religious leader considered to be Allah's representative on earth), the old enmity re-surfaced. Hazrat Ali had two descendants, Hazrat Imam Hussain and Hazrat Imam Hassan. Hussain was the ruler of the part of the empire known today as Iran. The other part in modern Iraq was ruled by the Umayyads. Hussain was called upon by the Shiahs of Kufa, a small town in the Umayyad kingdom, to accept their allegiance and claim his place as the leader of the Islamic community. This was against the wishes of the ruler of Kufa, Yazid, who instructed his governor, Ibn-e-Ziad to take appropriate action. Meanwhile, in response to the call of the Shiahs, Hussain accompanied by his family members, headed for Kufa. When they reached Karbala, en route to Kufa, the forces of the governor surrounded them and their 70 men. Hussain, his family, and his troops were tortured and killed, and Hussain's head was severed and presented to the king. They received no help from the Shiahs of Kufa. As this tragic incident happened on the tenth day of Muharram, Shia Muslims consider this a day of sorrow. They commemorate the martyrdom of Hussain as a religious occasion called "Muharram" (named after the month of its observance). The occasion starts on the 1st day of Muharram and lasts for 10 days until 10th of Muharram. As Muharram approaches, they put on black clothes, as black is regarded as a color of mourning. During the entire 10 day period, they keep themselves away from music and all joyous events (e.g. weddings) that can distract them in any way from the sorrowful remembrance of that day. During each of the first nine days of Muharram, "Majalis" (assemblies) are held where Shia orators vividly depict the incident of the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his party. Mainstream Shia Muslims fast until the evening. On "Ashura", devoted Muslims assemble and go out in large processions. They parade the streets holding banners and carrying models of the mausoleum of Hazrat Imam Hussain and his people, who fell at Karbala. Some Shia sects observe "Ashura" by beating themselves with chains in public, cutting themselves with knives and sharp objects and holding mournful public processions. This is an expression of their grief on the death of their favorite leader Hussain, considered to be the representative of Allah. (But no Shiite scholar affirms any extreme behavior that harms the body and Shia leaders consider such acts as "Haram", or forbidden.) It is a sad occasion and everyone in the procession chants "Ya Hussain", wailing loudly. Generally, a white horse is beautifully decorated and included in the procession. It serves to bring back the memory of the empty mount of Hazrat Imam Husain after his martyrdom. Drinking posts are also set up temporarily by the Shia community where water and juices are served to all, free of charge. While Shia Muslims consider "Muharram" to be a sorrowful occasion, Sunni Muslims observe it as a festival and look at "Ashura" as a happy day though the religious aspect remains intact. Pious Sunnis keep a fast("Roja") on "Ashura" as per the "Hadith"(a tradition based on reports of the sayings and activities of Muhammad and his companions) of Prophet Muhammad. According to the "Hadith", the Prophet saw the Jews fasting on the 10th of Muharram to commemorate their liberation from Egyptian slavery and the extermination of the army of the Pharoah in the waters of the Red Sea. Prophet Mohammed liked the custom for he believed that it was Allah who saved the Israelites from their enemy in Egypt. He started to fast on the same day as the Jews but he planned to fast on the 9th and 10th from the following year. But death came in between him and his pious wish. Usually, Sunni Muslims are recommended to fast either on the 9th and 10th Muharram or on the 10th and 11th
  13. Every day, five times a day, Muslims across the world face the holy site of Mecca and pray. Mecca is believed to be the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad but when followers visit the site, it is not actually Mecca they are facing but a building called the Ka’aba. The Ka'aba is a mosque and on one corner of this sacred building, is a cornerstone known as the Black Stone. Its history is shrouded in mystery and there is much speculation over what the stone might be. Many Muslims believe the stone is in fact a meteorite possessing supernatural powers. The Hajj Pilgrimage Ritual Millions of Muslims travel to Mecca, Saudi Arabia every year and in a single day, Mecca is capable of attracting over two million Muslim followers for the annual hajj pilgrimage, considered one of the five pillars of Islam. There, they gather around the Ka’aba or simply Kaaba, a cubic-shaped building at the center of Islam’s most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram. During the ritual of the hajj, pilgrims must walk around the Kaaba seven times in a counterclockwise direction, a ceremonial practice that has been going on for fourteen centuries. Muslims praying around the Ka'aba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia Muslims praying around the Ka'aba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia ( Mundairhouse) The Kaaba measures 50 feet (15.2 meters) high, 35 feet (10.7 meters) wide and 40 feet (12.2 meters) long. It is covered with a black silk cloth, known as the kiswa and decorated with gold-embroidered calligraphy. On the southeast side of the building is a gold door. Inside, the floor is made of marble and limestone and has three pillars. The Kaaba is built around a sacred Black Stone which is tucked away in the eastern corner about five feet off the ground. Muslims believe the prophet Mohammad once kissed the stone and during their mandatory, once in a lifetime (at least), trip to Kaaba, they try to kiss the Black Stone if possible. If they are unable to, they simply point to it every time they pass on their seven-circle journey around the Kaaba. Each time pilgrims pass the Black Stone they recite a prayer from the Qur’an: ' In the name of God, and God is supreme .' Non-Muslims are strictly forbidden from touching it and most of the year the Kaaba is covered in black cloth. The Ka'aba Stone with the black stone corner facing The Ka'aba Stone with the black stone corner facing ( Al-fouqarah) The Cause of the Ka'aba Black Stone's Color The stone is often described as a fragmented dark rock somewhere around two feet in length. Its surface is blackish in color, but there is speculation that this is due to how much it has been touched, along with the oils with which it is anointed. According to Muslim tradition, the stone was originally white, but turned black from being in a world where it absorbed humanity's sins. Archaeologists Discover Rare Seventh century Islamic dwelling in Qatar ‘Historical Amnesia’ has led to forgotten achievements of Muslim culture Muslims: The Origins of Human Beings First described in Western literature in the 19th century, Swiss traveler Johann Ludwig Burckhardt visited Mecca in 1814 and provided a detailed description of the Black Stone in his 1829 book Travels in Arabia: “It is an irregular oval, about seven inches in diameter, with an undulated surface composed of about a dozen smaller stones of different sizes and shapes, well joined together with a small quantity of cement and perfectly well smooth; it looks as if the whole had been broken into as many pieces by a violent blow and then united again.” History of the Ka'aba Black Stone Muslims believe that Allah ordered the Kaaba to be constructed. The story behind the black stone goes that Abraham built the mosque with his oldest son, Ishmael in the likeness of Allah’s home in heaven. Purportedly the oldest mosque on Earth, it is believed to have been originally used by pagans before Islam came into existence. According to Islamic tradition, the stone was set intact into the Kaaba’s wall by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the year 605 AD. Muslims also believe that the Kaaba stone was once part of the stones of heaven. There are various versions of its story of origin, all similar to one the another. When Adam was banished from the Garden of Eden, he was filled with sin. The Black Stone was given to him to erase this sin and allow him entrance back into heaven. Some instead believe the ancient stone was brought from a nearby mountain by the archangel Gabriel.
  14. As-Salaam alaykum, In Ayat 46 of Surat Kahfi of the Holy Qur'an, Allah Ta'ala says:-- "Wealth and children are the embellishment of worldly life, and the good things that last (al-baqiyat-as-salihat) are greater with your Lord and greater in expectation." Material things are short-lived and temporary, but "the good things that last" will continue into the hereafter, and the hereafter is far better and everlasting. What are "the good things that last"? The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, told us what they are in a Hadith in which one of his companions, Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "Make plenty of the 'good things that last (al-baqiyat-salihat)'. It was said: And what are they, O Messenger of Allah?" He said: "TAKBIR (Saying: ALLAHU AKBAR); TAHLIL (Saying: LA-ILAHA ILLALLAH); TAHMID (Saying: ALHAMDULILLAH); and Saying: LA-HAWLA WALA QUWATA ILLA BILLAH." [Bukhari, Muslim]. In view of this, we should include lots of reciting of the 'baqiyat salihat in our daily Zikr, when we come to remember Allah in the mornings and evenings. Best Wishes.
  15. As-Salaam alaykum, The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once asked his companions: "Are you unable to earn 1,000 good deeds a day?" Someone asked: "How can we earn 1,000 deeds a day?" The Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, replied:- "Make 100 Tasbih [ recital of SUBHANALLAH ] and 1,000 good deeds will be recorded for you or 1,000 sins will be erased." [Muslim, Hadith 2698]. In view of this, we should include lots of TASBIH everyday in our Zikr, when we come to remember Allah, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, in the mornings and evenings. Many Regards.
  16. As-Salaam alaykum, One day, seated among his companions, the Noble Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "Three things of your world are dear to me: Fragrance, women (his pure wives) and the coolness of my eyes is in Sallah." Sayyadina Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, said:-- "And 3 things of the world are also dear to me: looking at the face of Allah's Messenger, spending my wealth on Allah's Messenger and that my daughter be in the marriage of Allah's Messenger" And Umar Ibn Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said:-- "Three things of the world are also dear to me: Giving Righteous commands, stopping evil and wearing old and torn clothes." Hearing this, Sayyadina Othman Ibn Affan, may Allah be pleased with him, said...... at this point, I will invite you to open the file attached, so that you can see/read the rest of this Noble Hadith, as narrated by Imam Ibn Hajar Asqalaani in his book: Munabbahaat..may we all benefit from the lessons contained in this Hadith and live our lives according to the Hadith... ameen...

  18. What is Umrah? In Arabic, the word ‘Umrah is derived from I‘timaar which means a visit. However, ‘Umrah in Islamic terminology, means paying a visit to Ka’bah, performing Tawaaf (circumambulation) around it, walking between Safaa and Marwah seven times. A performer of ‘Umrah puts off his Ihraam by having his hair shaved or cut. ‘Umrah can be performed along with Hajj and in other days as well. ‘Umrah can be performed during anytime in the year, there is no fixed time for ‘Umrah. The Pillars of `Umrah are four: a) Ihraam: which is assumed at the Meeqaat. b) Tawaaf: around the House. c) Sa'y: walking between As-Safaa and Al-Marwah, which consists of seven circuits. d) Tahal-lul: which means coming out of the state of Ihraam; becoming lawful what was previously prohibited during Ihraam. During ‘Umrah, pilgrims do not go to Minaa, ‘Arafaat and Muzdalifah or throw pebbles on the Jamrahs (stone pillars representing devils) or offer animal sacrifice. These rites are only performed during Hajj. How to perform ‘Umrah: 1. When the one who wants to perform ‘Umrah arrives at the Meeqaat, it is recommended for him (both man and woman) to take a bath if convenient, including menstruating women and those experiencing postnatal bleeding. The man perfumes his head and beard but not his Ihraam garments. There is no harm in what remains of it after Ihraam. There is nothing wrong if it is not possible to take a bath at Meeqaat. 2. Men are to change into their clothing of Ihraam while the women only need to make their intention at that time in the clothing they are already wearing. There is no specific clothing designated for women, except that they are prohibited from wearing the Niqaab (face-veil) and gloves. Instead, they may cover their hands with the lower part of their khimaar (head covering), while using the upper part of their jilbaab (outer garment) or a separate piece of fabric to cover their faces by drawing it down, if there is need to do so. As for men, they must assume their Ihraam at the Meeqaat by wearing two pieces of fabric called the Izaar and the Ridaa’. The Ridaa’ covers the top half of the body, while the Izaar covers the lower half. No other clothing is allowed to be worn in addition to these – no underwear, no pants, no shirt, no turban, no hat, etc. are to be worn. Then the pilgrim makes the intention at the Meeqaat to begin the rites of ‘Umrah by entering the state of Ihraam. The intention must be made in the heart, while the statement made afterwards is: “Labayka ‘Umrah” or “Allahumma labbayka ‘Umrah”. This statement begins the rites of `Umrah. So the first pillar of `Umrah is the Ihraam. The intention is made in the heart, while the tongue recites the opening Talbiyyah. And if you wish, when uttering Talbiyyah, you may state a condition to Allah fearing that which may prevent you from completion of the ‘Umrah whether illness or fear - saying “in habasanee haabes fa mahillee haithu habastanee” (I come out of the state of Ihraam from the place You prevent me from continuing). So if you do that and are then prevented or become ill - then you may come out of Ihraam. Then repeat the Talbiyyah: “labbayk Allahumma labbayk, labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk, innal-hamda wan-ni'mata laka wal-mulk, laa shareeka lak” (“In response to your call O Allah I perform Umrah, here I am O Allah. In response to Your call. You have no partner. In response to Your call. All Praise and Blessings, and the Ownership of all that You created is Yours (alone). You have no partner”) Upon arriving at the sacred mosque in Makkah (Al-Masjid Al-Haraam), you should enter with your right foot and say: "Bismillaah, Allahumma Salli 'Alaa Muhammad, Allahumma Ighfirli waftahli Abwaaba Rahmatik. (In the name of Allah! O Allah! Exalt the mention of your Messenger. O Allah! Forgive my sins, and open the gates of Your mercy for me)." You should enter in a manner expressing humility and gratitude to the blessings He, Almighty, conferred upon you. 3. Upon arriving at the Ka’bah, stop reciting the Talbiyyah, then approach the Black Stone, touch it with your right hand and kiss it. If this isn't possible, you should face the Black Stone and point to it. Don’t push and shove, causing harm and being harmed by other people. When touching the Stone, the following is said: “Bismil-laah, Allahu Akbar” (In the name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest) or "Allahu Akbar" (Allah is the Greatest). A pilgrim must walk, keeping the Ka’bah on his left. When you reach the Yamaani corner touch it with your right hand, if possible, but do not kiss it, and say: “Bismil-laahi wa Allahu Akbar”. If this is difficult for you, then go on performing tawaaf without touching it, pointing at it or even saying “Allahu Akbar” because this was not narrated from the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) on the other hand whenever you reach or are parallel to the black stone, touch it with your right hand, kiss it and say, “Bismillaah Allahu Akbar”, if it is not possible then it is enough to point at it and say, “Bismillaah, Allahu Akbar”. During this Tawaaf it is preferred for a man to do two things: a) Al-Idhtibaa' from the beginning of Tawaaf until the end, which is placing the middle of one's Redaa' under the right arm and the ends of it over the left shoulder. When you are finished performing Tawaaf, you may return your Reda' to its original state because the time for A-Idhtibaa' is only during Tawaaf. b) Ar-Raml during the first three circuits only. Ar-Raml means speeding up one's pace with small steps. Make supplication from your heart, for that which will benefit you. Recite whatever you wish, supplicate to Allah by asking for good, recite the Quran, anything you wish. There are no specific statements or supplications to be recited during the Tawaaf that are authentically established in the Sunnah. However it is recommended to say between the two corners during each circumbulance as it is reported from the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ): “...Our Lord, grant us good in this life and good in the hereafter and save us from the punishment of the Hellfire.” [Quran: 2:201] 4. When you complete seven circuits of Tawaaf, approach Maqaam Ibraaheem (Ibraaheem’s station) and recite this verse (which means): “And take you (people) the Maqaam (place) of Ibraheem as a place of Prayer...” [Quran: 2:125] Then pray two short Rak’ahs, as close as conveniently possible, behind Maqaam Ibraheem. If it is not possible then you can pray them anywhere in the sacred mosque. It is preferred to recite during the first Rak'ah the chapter "Al-Kafiroon" [109] and during the second one the chapter of “Al-lkhlaas” [112]. Upon completing the two Rak'ahs, return to the Black Stone and touch it, if convenient 5. The next stage is to go to Safaa. Upon approaching the foot of Safaa, the following verse is recited (which means): “Verily, As-Safaa and Al-Marwah are from the symbols of Allah. So it is not a sin on him who performs Hajj or 'Umrah of the house (ka 'bah) to perform the going (tawaaf) between them. And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allah is the All-Recognizer, All-Knower.” [Quran; 2:158] 6. Then climb unto mount Safaa until the Ka'bah is visible, if possible. Facing the Ka’bah the following is to be said 3 times, and between each time one is to make ones own supplication: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha il-lall-llaahu wadahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, wa huwa 'alaa qulli shay'in qadeer. Laa ilaaha il-lall-llaahu wahdahu, anjaza wa'dahu, wa nasara 'abdahu, wa hazamal ahzaaba wahdahu" (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone, Who has no partner. To Him belongs the dominion, to Him belongs all praise, and He has power over everything. He fulfilled His promise, gave victory to His servant, and defeated the confederates alone.) 7. Then descend and go towards Marwah, running between the fluorescent green lights (for men only), upon reaching Marwah climb upon it if it is possible, and repeat the same procedure as when ascending Safaa except you are not to recite the above-mentioned verse, because it is recited when ascending Safaa for the first time only. This completes one circuit. Then one continues back to Safaa running between the fluorescent green lights (for men only) - thus completing two circuits. There are no particular supplications to be recited between Safaa and Marwah. Seven circuits are to be completed ending the last one on Marwah. Then one is to have his hair cut although shaving it is better. Women should shorten their hair by a finger-tips length from the end. The rights of 'Umrah have now been completed.

  22. My husband and I have lived in our house for 5 years now. When we first moved there - there was a pretty flower garden at the front of the house. Now it is a weed garden, but I really want it back to a flower garden. The thing is the spreading juniper has really taken over. We have tried everything to cut it, but there is just so much of it. I don't want to spray weed killer on it because that would just turn it brown. I would like to trim it, but there is just so much of it. Any ideas?? It looks terrible! _____________ https://www.juniperra.com/
  23. Do they just test it at the office? Do they write down the last time the person took their medications? If they say the test was fine, do they still send it off for more testing? Why would a person have to initial the urine cup? ________________ 椎间盘突出
  24. My mother is a long-time amateur genealogist and has a collection of microfiche containing various genealogy records. Her reader is old and pretty large. She's looking to move within the next couple months and would like to get rid of it. However, if she does she'll lose access to her microfiche. I already plan on slowly converting her collection of old family slides to digital and would like to do the same with her microfiche. Is this possible? I haven't been able to turn up anything on a Google search regarding this kind of conversion aside from a few services. I know it's possible to convert slides and other microforms. Any advice? ____________ 伦敦瘦脸针

  26. Where do you think you would spend eternity, if God forbid, you were to die later today? I am not sending this to you to preach religion. I am asking you if you were standing before a Holy God do you think that He would have an issue with your sin if you were standing in front of a Holy God? Because that is exactly what the Bible tells us. That a Holy God can not be in the presence of sin. So every human being that has ever lived has had the exact same problem. This sin problem. But do you also know that Jesus Christ offers all of us a free gift, the forgiveness of sin. And faith and belief is all God wants from you. So, do you believe that Jesus was the Son of God who came to earth and lived a perfect life? Do you know that God will accept Christ's perfect life and let Christ be your Advocate, so on Judgement Day God doesn't look at all the bad stuff you've done. Instead, God will look at His perfect Son when He see's you. Because Jesus and His perfection literally stand in our place. Something like that. I would try to lay it out in the most simple terms so they know what the problem is and what the solution is and how it works. Then in the last sentence just write a quick sentence like "there really is little difference between you and I, I am a sinner too. But I have accepted Christ's free gift of salvation and I know that I will be with God in eternity. I sincerely hope that this has helped you and I do apologize for being so forward, but I have to share this with you because I'm sure neither of us gets free gifts often. At this point, I would recommend for you a good Bible-based church that can answer any questions you have and will surround you with like-minded believers. Just Google bible church in your local area. God bless you!" Rom 3:23 : For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Now that you know that no one is good in God's eyes, how do we then become good? How do we become vindicated before God? The Bible teaches that we need to have Jesus' righteousness but the only way to do that is to come to Him by faith: Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Jesus commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins, to ask for His forgiveness, and to turn from their sins and to put their faith and trust in Him. Repenting means that you are sincerely sorry for all the bad things you have done in life and you want Jesus to change you into his holiness and righteousness.
  27. I'm not sure what is triggering them though. I know she gets really nervous and scared in a stuffy place as if she's going to die. Tonight we went to the er because she was freaking out so bad that I really didn't know what to do. Nothing would calm her down. All she thought was that she was going to die. The doctors couldn't give her meds but she needs to follow up with her main physician which isn't until October. This scares me alot as she can't keep her mind off of her breathing and freaking out. What can I do to ease her mind a bit _________________ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwIAZKS9t1o || https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIR1dfB2p20
