View: 7616When we think about something we need, we usually cannot overcome that thought until the perceived need is satisfied. For example, if we need food or water, our minds constantly think about how hungry or thirsty we are until we have something to eat or quench our thirst. Similarly, one who understands how much he or she is in need of God will constantly think about God. When we have faith and the desire to receive Gods grace and mercy, we will turn to the remembrance of Him. In Remember Me, and I Will Remember You, Dhikr: The Soul of Islam, author Tallal Alie Turfe, a champion for religious tolerance, underscores the importance of remembrance and how we can better use it to improve our health and lifestyle. He sheds light on the concept of remembrance and its importance as a reminder of our gratitude to the Creator. The Arabic term for remembrance is dhikr, which inspires us to do good, but it also heals, energizes, and transforms our lives. When engaging in dhikr, we feel more forgiving and enthusiastic. Dhikr is the adhesive that binds the mind and heart together. It serves as a key link in the dynamic between praising God and receiving blessings from Him. Remember Me, and I Will Remember You, Dhikr: The Soul of Islam will help you understand and use dhikr to achieve a better relationship with God and the world around us.

View: 8857“Show me Heaven! I have seen hell.” —Patricia Neal Larry King, world-famous radio and television personality, has asked the talented, the beautiful, the wise, and the rich a question all of us have pondered: How would you like to be remembered after your death? The result is REMEMBER ME WHEN I'M GONE, an entertaining and eloquent collection of “last words” from people in the arts, in politics, in sports, and in business, mostly still alive. In telling and moving reflections, often leavened by self-deprecating humor, these celebrities look back on their lives, their ambitions, their mistakes, and their accomplishments. The contributions range from pithy one-liners by Yogi Berra (“It’s over.”), Dave Barry, George Carlin, and Liz Smith (“Excuse my dust!”); to inspired sketches by Stephen King and Peter Falk; to candid reflections from Don Shula, Fred Rogers, and Chevy Chase; to hilarious rants from Margaret Cho and Tommy Lee; and a last request by Arthur Hailey. Often surprising and always memorable, REMEMBER ME WHEN I'M GONE is a timeless collection by stars who will live on forever.
