{وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ صِدْقًا وَعَدْلًا لَّا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَٰتِهِ وَهُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ}

QURAN: “The Word of your Lord finds its fulfillment in truth and justice.” [6:115]

HADITH: The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to recite this supplication in his prayers: “O God, I beg of Thee steadfastness in (righteous) affairs and firm determination (to adhere to the path) of righteousness.” Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 302

FEEDBACK

1. I appreciate receiving the Muslim News Digest and articles about Muslim-Jewish and interfaith understanding. It does disturb me that the articles you generally feature on Israel are negative. Here is another viewpoint which I hope you will read and reflect on. “How can you defend Israel?” David Harris, Huffington Post, 12/28/10 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-harris/how-can-you-defend-israel_b_801765.html . I hope you will accept this in the spirit of interfaith dialogue. Judy Press, Kansas City Jewish Life Examiner.

2. Many thanks for your information, actually I have been working in and for Muslim areas for over 20 years. I do need your support. Keep in touch. Tao Jianling, China.

3. Fabulous newsletter. Keep me on the mailing list! Mary Coons. http://www.marycoons.com/
