Today's Beautiful Gem: `The Brightness' from the Holy Quraan.

"By the morning brightness,
By the night when it is still,
Thy Lord hath not taken leave of thee, nor despised thee.
The last is better for thee than the first;
Assuredly in the end thy Lord will give thee to thy satisfaction.
Did He not find thee an orphan and give thee shelter?
Did He not find thee erring and guide thee?
Did He not find thee poor and enrich thee?
So as for the orphan, be not overbearing;
And as for the beggar, scold not;
And as for the goodness of thy Lord, discourse of it."

Om s'aantih: Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao.
