5 Al-Ma'idah (The Heavenly Food)
The following Ayats (signs) are randomly selected on this day as a reminder to those believers in the Unique Creator of all that exists, that seeking answers to daily problems are most efficient through the journey offered within the sacred texts of the Holy Quran, the latest divine words of revelation brought to mankind through the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Messenger of God.
In the Name of Allah the Merciful Beneficient
5:90 O, you who believe! Intoxicant [beverages] and gambling and sacrificing stones*1 and dividing by arrows for seeking luck or decision are some of Satan's acts, so keep away from them that you may be salvaged;
5:91 Truly, Satan, wants to raise enmity and hatred among you [people] by intoxicants and gambling and he [desires] to keep you away from [God's] Remembrance and prayer; will you then desist from committing [evil] deeds?
5:92 And obey [God] and obey [God's] Messenger and keep away from the disobedience; but if you turn away [from the Truth] know that it is Our Messenger's only [duty] to convey the Divine Message publicly.
5:93 Those who believe and do righteous deeds, there is no sin on them for what they ate [or drank in the past], if they fear [God] and believe [in It] and do righteous deeds and again, try to be pious and do good deeds; [know that] verily, [God] is affectionate to the good-doers.
*Stones on which the idolaters sacrificed animals for their idols and were considered sacred.
