(By Vimala Judy Kamalodeen)
Allah says we cannot really count the blessings he has given us -- even if we tried. How true it is.
Yet, there is one blessing that he has given us, right here in Trinidad, which is so obvious, and which is so wonderful, that it is easy to talk about it.
Allah also says in the Qur'an talk about the blessings you have been showered with by God.
So, here it is:
After decades and decades of hard work, we now see a situation in which there really are few people left here in our blessed and beautiful Trinidad who really do not know how to read the Qur'an.
What a blessing it is.
The challenge facing us now is how to go beyond teaching people how to read the Qur'an and to make them realize that the real and overriding purpose of their life on earth is to Work for Allah.
That is what we all need to focus on now and forever -- even as we continue to search for new people whom we can teach how to read the Qur'an.
What a blessed and exciting trip this has been.
