♡ The Qur’an; A Treasure Chest of Reminders ♡
I’m afraid to do what Allah (swt) wants from me because…
>>People will mock me behind my back
“And whenever they passed by them, used to wink one to another (in mockery);
And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting.” (Q83:30-31)
“But this Day (the Day of Resurrection) those who believe (good doers) will laugh at the disbelievers (wrong doers)” (Q83:34 )
>>People will use hurtful words with me and act un-nicely towards me.
– “And We have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have patience? And your Lord is Ever All-Seer (of everything)” (Q25:20)
>>I’m afraid i will lose out on people’s favours because they won’t like me anymore?
” Is not Allah sufficient for His slave(s)”? (Q39:20)
>>I won’t be able to withstand all that!
“And have patience, indeed Allah never wastes the rewards of the good-doers”. (Q11:115)
What we face in holding on to the path of Allah is nothing peculiar to us. The messengers of Allah (swt) have experienced it and even more, and Allah (swt) recorded their plight and gave it to us to serve as our very own book of guidance.
“(This is) a Book (the Quran) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember” (Q38:29)
Subhanallah. Let’s make a resolution to take the Qur’an as our best friend from today, let’s read it with understanding of what it teaches so that we can follow it’s guidance and lead our lives in accordance to how Allah (swt) wants it to be.
O Allah, make us so close to your Qur’an that we can fanthom the idea of meeting you in ignorance of even one ayah of it. And allow us to witness the coming month of the Qur’an and be of those who will change their lives for the better.
Ameen thumma ameen.
