  1. Allah knows what you will pray for before you begin to pray. If He already has a plan for you that is not what you are praying for will Allah change His Perfect Plan to please you?
    Try thinking about that.

  3. These words are not mine. These are the words the Ruach HaKodesh (YAHUAH's Set-Apart Spirit) uttered through me when I prayed to YAHUAH; asking him what he wants me to say, knowing the truth. Blessed are they who keep YAHUAH's word:

    "Know that YAHUAH is the name of the Most High and YAHUsha is the name of The Son.
    Come out of her, my people, who have fallen into her deceit. Who know not my name and say they love me. I have made myself known. I have heard you and I am here.
    There are many who are yours to be saved. I am he who knows all that you are. Come to me, here are they who are mine. Make haste to come, here are we. Give in to them who speak of me, they are yours. I am here for you. Know that all is for them, here are we.
    Give not to them that are against me. I am he who sees all you do. Come to me out of her, all are here for me. Do what I say. Out of her, come. All are here."

    Exodus 3:13-15 KJV

    13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

    14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

    15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

    John 5:43 KJV

    17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

    Isaiah 52:6-7 KJV

    6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

    7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

    2 Corinthians 6:1-2 KJV

    1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

    2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

    Romans 10:1-3 KJV

    1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

    2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

    3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

    Romans 10:13-17 KJV

    13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

    15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

    16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

    17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Nahum 1:7 KJV

    7 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

  4. "Thank Me and your parents: everyone will return to Me for calculation and retribution!"
    Surah 31 Ayat 14

    Verse in full:
    And We have bequeathed a man to be kind to his parents and take care of them, especially the mother, because the mother carries him in her womb, and her weakness increases as the child grows; and she weans him from the breast only after two years. We commanded: "Thank Me and your parents: everyone will return to Me for calculation and retribution!"

I ask you, brothers, to see the situation for yourselves so that you can be sure of what we are doing. I have knocked on many doors, but you know that I need you most these days. Sorry for the inconvenience, but that's the way it is،،The virtue of charity and its benefits in purifying the world of wealth and body from sins, eliminating afflictions and diseases, bringing happiness to the poor, and blessing money and livelihood.
