Ramadan Challenge: Your Mega Mind!

While talking about controlling our hands, feet, tongue, eyes etc. from committing sins, I feel we often ignore the source from which all our actions stem.

I live such moments about five times a day. When the first drop of water touches my hand, I feel... Continue Reading →

Gone with the Wind
