An American lady went on a tour of Russia. There, she saw pictures of the Chairman of the Communist party hanging everywhere she went. She took offence of this and gave vent to her feelings in the presence of some Russians.

Her companion whispered in her ear: “Madam, you are in Russia now, not America.”

Pious people and wrongdoers

The Quran says that on the Day of Judgment, when mankind is gathered before God, a person will look at his deeds. Those who denied God, and rebelled against Him, will behold the doom that awaits them. In anguish they will cry out: “Would that I were dust!” (78:40)

People have always believed that morning time is the best time because one’s mind is most fresh at this time of the day. The Quran expresses this fact in the following words: “The recitation at dawn is indeed witnessed.” (17:78)
