Lack of Faith (Conference Call)

Salam,

We will discuss sura 107:

The ayas about mindless prayer we discussed two weeks ago are part of a statement of symptoms of deficient faith that makes up Sura 107:

Do you see the one who is in denial of the law of compensation?

Such a one who rebuffs the orphan,

And does not encourage feeding the downtrodden.

There is calamity for those who are praying,

Who are unmindful in their prayer.

Those who do things for the sake of appearance,

And avoid doing simple acts of kindness.

These self-limiting  traits are found in all of us to some extent because faith is obtained through a process of growth. The journey of spiritual progress consists of moving away from self-centeredness toward awareness that we are connected to everyone and we are connected to God. Steps we can take to move in this direction will be discussed in our meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
