While reading the Qur'an in the storm, it was ironic that much of what i was reading was about storms (a lot in 11, 12 and 13), trees being uprooted (14:26), etc, often for punishment, other times for relief. It is strange to read the Qur'an in a storm as it feels all too real (the punishment)...and living here, the sinful south, I have to wonder if God is real mad at Florida (a Bush runs that state btw), etc. Are these hurricanes God's wrath?
On a happier note, this ayat was so beautiful and hopeful: "But those who believe and work righteousness will be admitted to Gardens beneath which rivers flow, - to dwell therin forever with the leave of their Lord. Their greeting therin will be "Peace!" 14:23
