Blog Your Blessings Sunday : Peace

Photograph by Eileen Trainor

A Muslim Prayer for Peace

In the name of Allah,
the beneficent, the merciful.
Praise be to the Lord of the
Universe who has created us and
made us into tribes and nations
That we may know each other, not that
we may despise each other.
If the enemy incline towards peace, do
thou also incline towards peace, and
trust God, for the Lord is the one that
heareth and knoweth all things.
And the servants of God,
Most gracious are those who walk on
the Earth in humility

A very nice prayer...

Truly, we need to know each other and understand the differences the we have.

That we may know each other...not despise each other. I love the connection this prayer makes between these concepts. Great photo!

@culture shiok-we are more alike than different.

@sandy carlson-how can we despise someone we do not know. I have never understood this.

@stev-thanks! I think we make a difference when we blog our blessings each Sunday.

@msdemmie-Thanks for stopping by. I am traveling, so I will have to do BYB on Wednesday. I look forward to it.

@whatever-I agree. We need an entire globe of BYB bloggers!

@neo-Thanks for your compliment. I am trying to take better pictures; ones that are not too embarrassing because I put my name on them!
