Quranic Verse of the week
 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful 
And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord
Surat 14: Ibrahim - Verse 6
