Daily Meditation: Discovering A Sense Of Belonging

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a verse from the Quran called Al-Duha, or The Glorious Morning Light. The passage reminds believers that with every new days, God, or Allah, is still their guardian, and there is a home for all the orphans of the world.

THE QURAN: SURA 93 - AL-DUHA (THE GLORIOUS MORNING LIGHT)

By the Glorious Morning Light,
And by the Night when it is still—
Thy Guardian-Lord hath not forsaken thee,
nor is He displeased.
And, verily, the hereafter will be better
for thee than the present.
And soon will thy Guardian-Lord
give thee (that wherewith)
thou shalt be well-pleased.
Did He not find thee an orphan
and give thee shelter (and care)?
And He found thee wandering,
and He gave thee guidance.
And He found thee in need,
and made thee independent.
Therefore, treat not the orphan
with harshness,
Nor repulse the petitioner (unheard);
But the Bounty of the Lord—
rehearse and proclaim!
