Eid of Sacrifice is not only an act of worship observed individually in the form of sharing meat with those in close proximity; it is an important means of reaching into hearts in different parts of the world. Right at the beginning of the second chapter of the Qur’an, God Almighty declares the fact that He is the actual owner of things and we are temporary keepers by “out of what We have provided for them they spend...” Namely, what we donate are actually nothing but blessings He had granted us. By pointing out that “He” is the actual Provider of sustenance, He reminds us that there is no need for us to worry about depletion. This point is more directly expressed in another verse that God Almighty, the Omnipotent One, is the Provider of sustenance of all creatures (Dhariyat 51:58).

The holy month of Ramadan is getting to a close. Muslims who have made it through are thankful that they have been able to do so, hopefully renewed and reformed, not only in terms of losing a couple extra pounds, but more in terms of spirit and character – that they have become better than what they were before. The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said “One might fast and he gets nothing from his fast but hunger. One might pray at night but he gets nothing from his prayer but fatigue.”

2017’s essay contest has been a tough competition. It was not easy to pick the winners from among more than 1,600 participants. Stories were heartbreaking, with much pain and sorrow. But authors also generously shared how they confronted the situation and were able to move on with their lives. Many stories were filled with some good advice on what to do when we are inevitably hit by a misfortune or have to endure a difficult ordeal.

Finally, after some delay, we are able to announce the winners. Congratulations to all!

With advancements in science and technology, we are getting closer to the famous quote from science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke, where “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” We have seen prototypes and experiments in many fields that would have been considered magic or superpowers in previous eras and cultures. Scientists have made incredible progress towards realizing super hero abilities like flying, levitation, invisibility, teleportation, and even time travel.
