Al-Anbiya- The prophets.
Surah number 21, revealed in Makkah, verses 112.
This chapter gets its name form the numerous mentions of Gods prophets in its verses. sixteen of Allah’s Prophets have been mentioned either by name and or by certain main points of their qualities. It speaks of the Day of Judgement, fates of the disbelievers and the believers, and the mercy of God.
Summarizing the entire chapter would be

You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who have received your grace;
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray.

As Muslims, the term “modest fashion” is not one that is new to our ears having to constantly struggle to maintain the modesty that is required in our dressing at the same time also not sacrificing the ‘fashion’ aspect.

At this point of my life – I am not a kitchen person.
I try to avoid that territory altogether, hence, not a lot of disasters have happened recently. I have been demotivated by the number of horrible creations that
